Slaying afflictions the very moment they arise ~ Gyelse Tokme Zangpo

The practice of all the bodhisattvas is to slay attachment
And the rest — mind’s afflictions — at once, the very moment they arise,
Taking as weapons the remedies held with mindfulness and vigilance.
For once the kleshas have become familiar, they’ll be harder to avert.
