Recollection

Book coverRecollection is the path of meditating on
The nature that was seen with awareness.
Constituted by the aspects of enlightenment,
This serves to eliminate the stains.

Recollection involves repeatedly recalling and realizing, in the context of the path of cultivation, what was realized when the intrinsic nature was directly seen with individual self-awareness at the prior stage. In this way, the term recollection refers to all that constitutes the factors of enlightenment. The path of cultivation is [referred to as such] because it involves eradicating those stains that are eliminated through cultivation.
