Shortcut of enlightenment 悟りの近道

Special meditation techniques were developed in Tantric practice and yoga, but its purpose is a shortcut of enlightenment. It is common that our efforts will rather result in failure with the loss if we try to gain benefits by a shortcut, so life isn't as easy as we think. Those who choose a shortcut of enlightenment by meditation techniques tend to be self-serving from altruistic purposes all too soon. In that case, the shortcut will turn out to be the long way and confuse the order of things on the contrary. We can say that it is the requirement for enlightenment that we come to conviction and make a pledge to ourselves (Recombination of gene in our brain may occur at this point). After all, there is no shortcut to enlightenment.
