April 22, Talk 19, Verses 49-50

49. The penetration of levels through application
Should be known to entail the following four steps:
Through intense application involving informed commitment,
The stage where training is done through informed commitment
Comprises the step of definitive verification.
To connect with superior, firsthand realization
Is the first of the levels, the stage the precise is encountered.

50. Through intense application employing meditation,
The impure levels followed by those which are pure
Are what comprise the stage of recollection.
Through application involving final perfection,
The spontaneous deeds of a buddha continually flow;
Hence this is the stage of immersion into the core.
