The Great Impartiality

When we are partial,weturn against each other.
When we are impartial,we listen without bias.

Impartiality gives rise to open confidence.
Partiality gives rise to closed doubt.

The factors conducive to the attainment of enlightenment are: observation, investigation, effort, calmness, absorption and impartiality. When we ignore these, we become distracted, and turn against each other.

Evil loves and creates partiality.
True love is impartial.

“May we refrain from attraction, aversion and great impartiality…”
from a prayer to generate the altruistic attitude of bodhicitta
