like fog is faith unstable

034Like fog is faith unstable –

When it starts to fade, you should

Strengthen it more than ever.

(100,000 Songs of Milarepa, p627)

Without faith our practice weakens

Without faith Samsara’s illusions reign

Without faith sickness, old age, and death are fearful –

Denied with distractions

Without faith our way to Buddhahood is lost.

Without faith restlessness manifests in countless distractions. (ani drubgyudma)
