Ten Signs

"When your grasping decreases, that is the sign of having expelled the evil spirit of fixation.

When attachment grows less, that is the sign of being free from ambition (craving).

When your disturbing emotions decrease, that is the sing of the five poisons being pacified from within.

When your selfishness decreases, that is the sign of having expelled the evil spirit of ego clinging.

When you are free from embarrassment and hold no reference point, that is the sign that your deluded perception has collapsed.

When you are free from the concepts of mediator and meditation object and never loose sight of your innate nature, that is the sign that you have met the luminous Mother.

When any perception arises as unbiased individual experience, that is the sign of having reached the core of the view and meditation.

When you have resolved samsara and nirvana as being indivisible, that is the sign that full realization has arisen.

When you have no clinging to even your own body, that is the sign of being totally free from attachment.

When you remain unharmed by suffering and difficulties, that is the sign of understanding appearances to be unsubstantial.

When you have only a minor degree of the eight worldly concerns, that is the sign of having recognized the nature of mind.

When your inner sings show outwardly it is like a tree that has sprouted leaves. When the outer signs are noticed by other people it is like fruit of the tree that has ripened and can be eaten."
