After realizing the things of this world are unreal,
There is little benefit in dwelling in solitude.
When the falsehoods of phenomenal appearances have collapsed into their own nature (emptiness),
And the unaltered nature of phenomena has been recognized,
Do not nit-pick the subtle concepts of grasping and grasped,
Or attach to the contaminated virtuous deeds.
Please maintain the stronghold of the vast expanse of primordial pure nature.
If someone defames and disgraces you, that is simply the result of having criticized and dishonored others in the past, especially bodhisattvas. Instead of feeling angry with such people, you should feel grateful to them for giving you the opportunity to purify your past misdeeds.
In all circumstances, it is important to act in accordance with the teachings - but especially at such moments. What is the point of having received teachings if you do not apply them? Unfavorable circumstances are the best opportunity you will have to put the teachings into practice.
