7 On the Union of Opposites


The Mahamudra is found in uniting what is divided.
Know that in whatever state you find yourself, seek its complement.

When you feel filled with anger, marry your anger to silence.
When you find yourself filled with joy, marry your joy to the knowledge of death.
When you find yourself filled with pain, marry that pain to the bliss of being alive.
When you find yourself happy, marry that happiness to the sense that all is passing.
When you find yourself frightened, marry that fear to the strength of your will.
When you find yourself suffering, marry that suffering to the bliss of the divine.

This is a technique.
When you unite what is divided, you will find the secret center.
