PATH BY PRINCIPLE
AND BY PRACTICE"
Second is the practice of adapting to conditions.
Sentient beings are without a self, being
steered by karmic conditions. Suffering and joy
are experienced together as a result of causes
and conditions. Any reward, blessing or honor is
a consequence of past causes, and is gone when
the necessary conditions are exhausted. So what
is there to be joyful about? Knowing that
success and failure depend on conditions, the
Mind neither gains nor loses, remaining unmoved
by the winds of joy. This is to be in harmony
with the Way. Therefore it is called the
practice of adapting to conditions.
