== Quotes ==
Any bodhisattvas whose thoughts are at present concentrated and directed toward the buddhas of the ten quarters, will, if they possess mental concentration, achieve all the exalted practices of a bodhisattva. What is mental concentration? Through compliance with the conditions for reflection on the Buddha, having one’s thoughts directed toward the Buddha; having thoughts that are not disturbed, thereby obtaining wisdom; not giving up energy; joining together with good friends in the practice of emptiness; eliminating sleepiness; not congregating; avoiding bad friends; drawing close to good friends; having energy that is not disorderly; in eating, knowing when one has had enough; not craving robes; not begrudging one’s own life; being solitary and avoiding one’s relatives; keeping away from one’s home village; practicing equanimity, mastering the attitudes of compassion and rejoicing, and the practice of circumspection.
Pratyutpanna Samādhi Sūtra, as translated by Paul Harrison (1998), BDK English Tripitaka Translation Series, Book 25, 904c
