The Eight Verses of Thought Transformation
By Geshe Langri Tangpa
Please contemplate the third and fourth verses, trying to develop an
understanding and applying it in daily life.
The Eight Verses can be found on page 92 of Buddhism: Ancient
Medicine for Healing Modern Minds by Venerable Tenzin, which you
can download here.
May I examine my mind in all action,
And as soon as a negative state occurs,
Since it endangers myself and others,
May I firmly face and avert it.
When I see beings of a negative disposition
Or those oppressed by negativity or pain,
May I, as if finding a treasure, consider them
For they are rarely met.

“When you plant seeds in the
garden, you don’t dig them up
every day to see if they have
sprouted yet. You simply water
them and clear away the
weeds; you know that the
seeds will grow in time.
Similarly, just do your daily
practice and cultivate a kind
heart. Abandon impatience
and instead be content
creating the causes for
goodness; the results will
come when they’re ready.”
