Gampopa's ten things to be given up

Give up, no matter what. a teacher who is mixed up in the 8 worldly concerns.

Give up evil companionship and supporters who harm your attitude and experience.

Give up a hermitage or place of meditation that is distracting or harmful.

Give up sustenance acquired through stealing, robbery, or deceit.

Give up aims and activities that harm your attitude and experience.

Give up food and behaviour that harms your physical constitution.

Give up all attachment that binds you with greed to desirable things.

Give up frivolous behavior which may cause others to lose trust.

Give up meaningless aims and activities while walking and sitting.

Give up hiding your own faults while proclaiming those of others.



Note: The 8 worldly concerns are attachment to gain, pleasure, praise and fame, and aversion to loss, pain, blame, and bad reputation.
