The Scripture of the Founding Master

Chapter Eleven: Maxims


The Founding Master said, “There are two Māras hindering great practice. The first is, ignoring one’s own spiritual capacity, one stops progressing by denigrating and giving up on oneself. The second is, satisfied with a modicum of knowledge, one stops progressing by being proud and haughty. Without getting rid of these two hindrances of Māra, one cannot accomplish great practice.”
