19. Standstill

hex 19

Amoghasiddhi Confined


The primordial is always preserved even in the midst of temporal abnormalities. Amoghasiddhi is confined yet his standstill is an efficacious one. What matters in this time of immobility is solidifying ones inner-resolve to enliven the Unborn Mind whilst dissolving all apparent mundane vexations in the superior-stream of Bodhi.

Once stabilized in the Unborn all circumferential concerns pale in comparison with the essential-nuclei that harbors no emotional link to the passing orbit bearing defiled sentiment of no good value.

Remain steadfast and true and thus cultivate Right Assessment under all conditions.
