The enlightened Lord Tönpa Shenrap Miwoché taught his disciples that in order to quickly attain complete liberation, one should practice the highest view of the dzogchen teachings according to the ultimate truth. However, he emphasized that spiritual behavior is based upon the relative truth and should be practiced from the bottom to the top. The method for this practice is the Ten Perfections and the foundation is compassion. According to Lord Tönpa Shenrap, even though one practices the highest view, one should continually pay close attention to the details of behavior according to the relative truth.
The Ten Perfections are:
- Moral Discipline
- Skillful Means
For a brief explanation of each of these perfections, see previous post: https://ravencypresswood.com/2015/10/23/the-ten-perfections-of-the-yungdrung-bon/
