Avoid six mistakes.
To endure patiently the suffering of subduing enemies, protecting friends, and working to make money and not to endure patiently the difficulties of dharma practice is mistaken patience.
To want wealth, happiness, and comfort in this life and to have no inclination to practice dharma thoroughly is mistaken inclination.
To enjoy the taste of wealth and possessions and not to enjoy the taste of hearing, reflection, and meditation on the dharma is mistaken enjoyment.
To have compassion for a person who puts up with hardship in order to practice dharma and not to have compassion for those who do evil is mistaken compassion.
To engage people who look to you in bettering only their position in this life and not to engage them in dharma is mistaken care.
To take joy in other people's unhappiness and in the sufferings of your enemies and not to take joy in virtue and happiness in nirvana or samsara is mistaken joy.
Avoid these six mistakes completely.
