In Tibet there was a very famous practitioner by the name of Geshe Ben Gungyal. A disciple noticed that at night he neither slept nor recited any prayers, and asked what his practice was. Ben Gungyal replied, ‘I have two practices: to be aware when delusions arise and to control them. I have no other practice than this. If I see that delusions are not arising I am happy. But if delusions do arise I try to be mindful of them and apply the appropriate opponents. My Dharma practice is not from my mouth. My practice is to eradicate delusion.’ Ben Gungyals method of practice was greatly praised by the famous Teachers of his day. It would be very wise for us to try to emulate him.
