The entire spiritual path may be understood in terms of the two accumulations. It takes tremendous merit to awaken- this doesn’t just appear by itself, but is built: moment by wholesome moment. The merit collected by the practices of generosity, ethical behaviour, patience, energy and concentration provide a basis for Insight to be developed, not just in flashes, but with stability like the steady flow of a river. Tantra, which can be translated as ‘weaving’, offers a supreme way to thread together the many meritorious and insightful moments- like beads onto a rosary- into a continuity of accumulation.
