    Dear Rinpoche
    Would it be correct to say that in order to understand these stanzas, you have to accept that the most important thing is to try to generate good karma and to not generate negative karma? I am not sure why it suddenly takes this form in my mind. Maybe it is because I have failed to realise something very obvious until now!
    Kind regards
