      How an awakened being behaves

      Some (4) of the 37 practices

      From "A Summary of How an Awakening Being Behaves"
      by Tog-me Zong-po (Thogs.med bzang.po, 1245-1369)

      3rd practice of a bodhisattva.

      Donít engage disturbances
      and (then)
      reactive emotions gradually fade away;

      Donít engage distractions
      and (then)
      spiritual practice naturally grows;

      Keep awareness clear and vivid
      and (then)
      confidence in the way arises.

      Rely on silence ó this is how an awakened being behaves

      20th practice of a bodhisattva.

      If you donít subdue
      the opponent inside,
      (your own anger),
      Although you subdue opponents outside,
      they just keep coming.
      Muster the forces
      of loving kindness and compassion

      And subdue your own mind ó this is how an awakened being behaves.

      22nd practice of a bodhisattva

      Whatever arises in experience
      is your own mind.
      Mind itself is free
      of any conceptual limitations.

      Know that
      and donít generate
      Subject-object fixations ó this is how an awakened being behaves.

      36th practice of a bodhisattva.

      In short, in everything you do,
      Know what is happening in your mind.
      By being constantly present and aware
      You bring about what helps others ó this is how an awakened being behaves.

      10 of the many rules that Buddhist monks keep.

      1) - wear his robes so that they hang down evenly, covering his chest, knees, wrists, and everything in between.

      2) - refrain from playing with his hands or feet.

      3) - keep his gaze lowered except when it is necessary to look up.

      4) - refrain from hitching up his robe so that it exposes the side of his body.

      5) - refrain from laughing loudly or speaking loudly.

      6) - refrain from swinging his body, arms or head.

      7) - refrain from putting his arms akimbo. (hands on hips)

      8) - refrain from covering his head unless the weather is unbearably cold or hot.

      9) - refrain from walking on tiptoe or just on his heels.

      10) - refrain from sitting with his knees held up, either by hugging them or by surrounding them with a strip of cloth.

      How to sleep sitting up

      Near the bottom of post (after teaching how to learn how to sleep sitting up, He says this:

      When I sleep upright I have a very light, but amazingly refreshing sleep. I remember my dreams better, I wake up more easily if something is going on around me, and yet I don’t feel groggy or disrupted.

      I can jump right up without that usual feeling of disorientation that comes after sleep, which has led to not hitting the coffee so hard.

      Even though it’s a lighter sleep somehow it’s very satisfying.

      Learn why Tibetan Monks sleep sitting up!

      Tibetan Monks are a select group of people that dedicate their entire lives to spirituality, and living a life made up of certain rituals in a monastery.

      Their lifestyle may seem strange to foreigners, but Tibetan Monks don't let other people's opinions change their cultures, even when it comes to sleeping.

      As it turns out, Tibetan Monks sleep sitting up. It sounds like torture, but according to many people that have tried it - it's fantastic.

      People who have tried sleeping upright like a monk (who by the way have special boxes for sleeping), have found that they never have a sore back or neck, it's impossible to snore, and they have more energy when they are awake!

      The reason that monks sleep upright is actually a method of training their body to have better posture while meditating!

      Their box-beds are positioned so that they face their personal shrines!
