Quotations from Four Hundred Verses rigpawiki

Template:Tibquote

Those with little merit will not
Even wonder about these things.
But merely to entertain doubts
About saṃsāra will make it fall apart.

Āryadeva, Four Hundred Verses rigpawiki, VIII, 5

At first, turn away from non-virtue,
In the middle, dispel misconceptions of self,
Finally, go beyond all philosophical views—
One who understands this is wise indeed.

Whoever sees the nature of one thing
Is said to see the nature of everything.
For the emptiness of one thing
Is the emptiness of everything.
