When harmful places are abandoned, disturbing emotions gradually diminish. Without distractions, virtuous endeavors naturally increase. Being clear-minded, definite understanding of the Dharma arises. Resorting to secluded places is the Bodhisattvas’ practice.
A bodhisattva’s practice is to rely on seclusion where,
By having rid ourselves of detrimental objects,
our disturbing emotions and attitudes gradually become stymied;
By lacking distractions, our constructive practices naturally increase;
And by clearing our awareness, our certainty grows in the Dharma.
