The special pith instructions on mind training received in vision from Manjushri by Sachen Kunga Nyingpo. In four short lines expressing the essence of all the sutras and tantras, Manjushri teaches the stages of mind training, beginning with a contemplation of the precious human life, up to the cultivation of special insight. 

"If you are attached to this life, you are not a genuine Dharma practitioner.

If you are attached to samsara, you do not have renunciation, the wish to become free.

If you are attached to your personal benefit, you do not have bodhicitta.

If there is mental grasping, it is not the correct view."
