The yogin Kambala came along, saw this woodseller, and said,
“You are alone and silent in this lonely spot. What is it that you are thinking about, sitting here?”
“I am depressed, yogin, for my heart dwells on money and worldly fortunes. I can not think about anything else.”
“If there were instructions to find wealth and fortune, could you practice them?” asked the yogin.
“Without a method, I cannot practice anything,” the man said.
And he requested instruction. The yogin then initiated him into Carasamvara and gave him these instructions on the profound Perfecting Stage:
How can you obtain wealth by just wishful thinking?
Give up these daydreams, which are like the son of a barren woman. The best body has the nature of the sky.
Contemplate that your mind is as bright as the many stars, and you will become like the god of wealth himself.
When these things become evident, then everything you desire will arise.
The wood-seller meditated accordingly. He fused his ideas about wealth and fortune with the stars, and dissolved these stars into the nature of the sky. And in this way, he became devoid of conceptions.
Then his guru came again and said,
“Having spoken with no conceptions whatsoever, you have become free of them.
Since your nature has become like the sky, did you use it as an object, or what?
If you meditate free of color and shape, in what way can you desire things?”
Having realized the meaning of this, the wood-seller obtained the siddhi of Mahamudra. He became famous as the guru Acinta, and instructed others on the real nature of things, working for the benefit of living beings for three hundred years. Then with a circle of followers measureless in extent, he went in that very body to the realm of the Dakas.
