Session Eight | Buddha Dharma


All waves are truly one vehicle

All Waves are Truly One Vehicle

All teachings lead all beings

to the state of Buddhahood. It seems like there are three different teachings.

However, they are only skillful means of the Shakyamuni Buddha to guide people according to their level of understanding.

Session Eight | Buddha Dharma


Reviewing our condition

Reviewing | Our Condition

For a human being, life in the present is always oblivious to its perfect state because the

mind is full of craving or desire

in a world of delusion in which things are pleasant and unpleasant.

Sensation arises and flows

according to impulses.

Session Eight | Buddha Dharma


Review of vajra speech

Review of Vajra Speech

  • We are what we think.

  • All things are preceded by the mind, led by the mind, created by the mind.

  • All thoughts vanish into emptiness like the imprint of a bird in the sky.

  • Once we wake up from the delusion of impure phenomena, they disappear.

  • Cause and effect are you. That is why

    what you do and what happens to you are the same thing.

Session Eight | Buddha Dharma


Vajra speech

Vajra Speech

  • Enlightenment can and does use all available emotions

  • Nonattachment is not avoidance of attachment, for it is another form of clinging to the denial of your human attachment needs out of trust that love is not reliable

  • Chaos is inherent in all compounded things

  • Concentrate the mind on the present

Session Eight | Buddha Dharma


Vajra speech1

VajraSpeech

  • All such notions as causation, succession, atoms, primary elementsare all figments of the imagination and manifestations of the mind.

Session Eight | Buddha Dharma


Vajra speech2

VajraSpeech

  • We are the change that we seek.

  • Once that I know I am responsible for my thoughts, I also know that I can drop it at any moment I decide to drop it.

  • My ego-clinging, selfish mind (creator or my world of fear and suffering), I shall destroy you.

Session Eight | Buddha Dharma


Vajra speech3

VajraSpeech

  • The water of compassion courses thought the canal of loving kindness.

  • Even with chains on your feet you can dance; then even the sound of chains will have a melody to it.

  • As the source of both inner and external peace, compassion and love are not mere luxuries but also fundamental to the survival of our species.

Session Eight | Buddha Dharma


Vajra speech4

VajraSpeech

  • Do not project space as being there. Do not grasp awareness as being here! This is because space and awareness are a primordial unity.

  • The mind, though free from arising and ceasing, manifests in various ways so that the Nirmanakaya (minds awareness and clarity) is the unceasing appearances of the expressive power of mind.

Session Eight | Buddha Dharma


Vajra speech5

VajraSpeech

The world is regarded as a phenomena originating in the mind. And the mind, untamed, remains confused with hope (attachment) and fear (aversion), and ensnared by the eight worldly concerns.

Emptiness is form, form is emptiness.

Mind is empty.


Vajra speech6

Vajra Speech

Minds nature has neither birth nor cessation, like space.

When you realize the real meaning of the equal nature of all things, to remain in that state, without searching, is meditation.

GarabDorje

Session Eight | Buddha Dharma


Video set up

Buddha nature in essence is mind itself. Once it's recognized as such -- then you are a buddha.

As long as it's not recognized, there is suffering. A scriptural reference says,

The mind of a sentient being is buddha itself; it just happens to be clouded and bewildered. When this bewilderment and misunderstanding are removed, buddha is present.

This is to say that, in a sense, we are each a buddha and yet don't realize it; only our blindness, our emotionality and ignorance prevent us from realizing this.


Dzogchen

Dzogchen

It represents the highest system of spiritual practice which leads to the recognition of the state of absolute knowledge

the Natural State

that exists in all sentient beings.

Session Eight | Buddha Dharma


The diamond sutra

The Diamond Sutra

Like a tiny drop of dew, or a bubble floating in a stream;

Like a flash of lightning in a summer cloud,

Or a flickering lamp, an illusion, a phantom, or a dream

Is how to contemplate our conditioned existence in this fleeting world.

Chapter 32. All Phenomena are Illusions

that cuts through illusion

Session Eight | Buddha Dharma


Dzogchen1

Dzogchen

According to Tibetan Buddhism and New Bn

  • Dzogchen(Rdzogschen or Atiyoga) is the natural, primordial state or natural condition, and is also a body of teachings and meditation practices aimed at realizing that condition.

  • According to Dzogchen literature, Dzogchen is the highest and most definitive path to enlightenment in ones lifetime.

The mind itself is the perfect Buddha.

Do not search for the Buddha anywhere else.

The Three Words that Strike to the Heart of the Essential Point

GarabDorje

Session Eight | Buddha Dharma


Manjushrimitra

Manjushrimitra

  • Direct Introduction

    to the primordial state (ones own true nature) is transmitted straight away by the master to the disciple. The master always remains in the primordial state, and the presence of that state communicates itself to the disciple in whatever situation or activity he/she may share.

Session Eight | Buddha Dharma


Shri singha

ShriSingha

  • Not Remaining in doubt about this unique state

    By entering into this unique state of non-dual contemplation and by experiencing the primordial state, the disciple no longer remains in any doubt as to what it is.

Session Eight | Buddha Dharma


Jnanasutra

Jnanasutra

The Disciple continues in the state of non-dual contemplation,

bringing contemplation into every action, until that which is every individuals true condition from the beginning (the Dharmakaya) is made real, or realized. One continues right up to Total Realization.

As fordirectly continuingwith confidence in liberation: Whatever gross or subtle thoughts may arise, by merely recognizing their nature, they arise and (self-) liberate simultaneously in the vast expanse of the Dharmakaya, where Emptiness and Awareness (are inseparable). Therefore, one should continue directly with confidence in their liberation.

The three precepts of dzogchen

The Three Precepts of Dzogchen

  • DIRECT INTRODUCTION. One is introduced directly to one's true nature. This is why GarabDorje is often portrayed pointing his finger at the viewer.

  • REMAINING WITHOUT DOUBT. One attains certainty about this natural state

  • CONTINUING TO REMAIN IN THIS STATE. One continues with confidence in liberation or continuing in the non-dual state.

    When the practitioner experiences the natural state, other practices are given so that this natural state can be regained, maintained, and integrated.

GarabDorjes Three Precepts of Dzogchenare known as the "Three Words that Strike to the Heart of the Essential Point

They summarize the whole of the Dzogchen teachings

Session Eight | Buddha Dharma


The upadeshas

The Upadeshas

  • There are many Upadesha instructions a practitioner can employ to realize the nature of mind, the natural state, the buddha nature.

  • Often referred to as pith instructions

The ultimate nature of all sentient beings is said to be pure, all-encompassing, primordial activity (naturally occurring timeless clarity which has no form of its own and yet is capable of perceiving, experiencing, reflecting, or expressing all form.

Session Eight | Buddha Dharma

  • "When, from out of the primordially pure Dharmadhatu, suddenly Rigpa arises; and with it, there is an instantaneous recognition

  • It is like finding a precious jewel in the depths of the ocean. No-one has created it. It is just the Dharmakaya".

    GarabDorje

Session Eight | Buddha Dharma


To fully understand

To Fully Understand

  • In accordance with the three precepts of GarabDorje, the teachings were classified into three series

  • Semde: the Mind series that focuses on the introduction to ones primordial nature

  • Longde: the Space series that focuses on developing the capacity to gain familiarity with the sate and remove doubts;

  • Menngagde: the Secret Oral Instructions on the practices in which one engages after gaining confident in the knowledge of the state.

it is to be experienced and recognized.

Session Eight | Buddha Dharma MIND IS RADIANTLY PURE.


The heart of the teachings

The Heart of the Teachings

Dont seek to cut the root of phenomena (e.g., world problems and our thoughts and emotions).

Cut the root of mind.

If you cut the root of mind, youll know one thing which resolves all.

If you dont cut the root of the mind, you can know everything but be forever stuck on one.

Padhmasambhava

When we conquer our own minds, we become master of our perceptions

Likewise, there is nothing other than these two.There is no place to abide in the beginning,

Head Monk ShenHsius

Response

The body is the bodhi tree.

The mind is like a bright mirrors stand.

At all times we must strive to polish it

And must not let the dust collect.

Hui-nengs response

Bodhi originally has no tree.

The mirror also has no stand.

The Buddha nature is always clear and pure.

Where is there room for dust?

Nature of mind

Nature of Mind

Chan Text

Dzogchen Text

The instantaneous approach has no method.

One cultivates the nature of reality in this wayall phenomena are mind, and mind is uncreated. In that it is uncreated, it is emptiness.

Since it is like the sky, it is not a field of activity for the six sense-faculties. This emptiness is what we call vivid awareness. Yet within that vivid awareness there is no such thing as vivid awareness. Therefore without remaining in the insights gained from studying, cultivate the essential sameness of all phenomena.

  • The mind itself, which is without basis or root,is not to be found through effort; it is like the sky.Enlightenment, which is uncreated, is enlightenment free from cause and effect.

  • For Chan (Middle Chinese, Dzyen) and Dzogs-chen, the intrinsic awareness is spontaneous

The clear light of mind is mutual arising

at the same time,

mutual entering at the same time,

mutual depending at the same time,

and mutual comprising at the same time.

It is ever present.

Session Eight | Buddha Dharma


Clear light is the most subtle level of m ind

Clear light is the Most Subtle Level of Mind

Clear light is a state of mind which becomes fully manifest only as a consequence of certain sequences or stages of dissolution (devoid of certain types of obstacles and obscuration). All consciousness or all cognitive mental events are said to be in the nature of clarity and luminosity.


Video set up

The energy of infinite consciousness (without abandoning its true nature)

manifests this creation. First

the notion of creation, then light, and

the division of the universe.

As a particle of consciousness moves in space,

it does there what it did here earlier; thus,

the sequence of time arises, as well as spatial distinctions. Then, one after the other, the

diverse beings are created.

from The Yoga Vasistha

Session Eight | Buddha Dharma


Video set up

The trick is to realize that this is the true nature of reality, emptiness containing moving bits of energy. Once one experiences this, it is important to remember that everything is made of the same substance, including ones own body.

It is also imperative to remember that it is, in fact, a projection from your heart and exiting through your eyes, playing out out there.

Ah

sound

A good way of becoming aware of it is to look directly at clouds on a humid day. When one looks at it, one can see these tiny sparks of light jumping around all over the place. These particles of light can sometimes be seen to be strung together in strands or at other times form parts of large spiraling discs.


Self arising wisdom is the base

Self-arising Wisdom is the Base

  • The five negative emotions are manifested energy.

  • Seeing emotions as mistaken is an error.

  • Letting them be in their nature is the method

    to find the non-dual state of Liberation,

  • Overcoming hope and fear is the result.

Recognizing that all thoughts arise in our inner space and arise from emptiness

  • The essence of the base is called the mother (ma),

  • the awakened awareness (rigpa) is called the son (bu), and

  • the inseparability of mother and son is the flow of energy (rtsal).

The nature of mind

The Nature of Mind?

Mind, first.

Duality of Mind

  • In ancient texts, mind is a composite of heart/mind. Recent studies shows that even the heart is composed of mind, having memories. It emphasizes the emotive side of mind.

  • Mind also is the intellect or mind-sense in the sense of what grasps mental objects.

  • Citta is the term used to refer to the quality o f mental processes as a whole and is not a process or an entity.

  • There is the thinking aspect of when, for example, anindividual decides on and commits to a particular course of action

    I will thisI will do this.

  • Consciousness: Mind consisting of eight consciousness; life force; discernment

Illustration of dualism by Ren Descartes.

Inputs are passed by the sensory organs

to thepineal glandand from there to the

immaterial spirit. It objectifies.

I think, therefore, I am;

and I do accordingly.

The interrelationship of our relational approach

The Interrelationship of Our Relational Approach

"Not only a shift in consciousness, but also a shift toward consciousness, or toward mind -- a mindful universe, a universe of consciousness, of spirit, a spiritual, conscious universe. "--Fritjof Capra

Session Eight | Buddha Dharma


Video set up

Self-Realization is a moment that is brief and yet timeless and eternal.

There is the immediate direct knowledge of"I AM THAT I AM"or the knowing that"I always was, always am, and always will be!"

There is no question or doubt, given that it is directly perceived as an irrefutable fact. One knows that"This is Who and What I Really Am, Love, Light, Bliss, Just Pure, Clear Space, Eternally Free!"

This is a sense of what Self-Realization is but...it happens in Awareness, not in thought.

Mind in its insubstantiality is like the sky."

This true or false, my children?

Confirm it by relaxing completely and looking directly at the mind, gazing with your entire mind, free of all tension.The emptiness of the mind is not just a blank nothingness, for without doubt it is the primal awareness of intrinsic knowledge, radiant from the first. Self-existent, natural radiance is like sun-light. Is this indeed true?

To confirm it, relax completely, looking directly at the nature of your mind. There is no doubt that it is impossible to objectify or grasp thought or the movement of memory. This capricious, changeable movement is like the cosmic wind!"

Is this indeed so?

To confirm it, relax completely, looking

Without doubt all appearances whatsoever are our own manifestation. All phenomena, whatsoever manifests, is like reflection in a mirror." Is this indeed so? To confirm it, relax completely, looking directly at the nature of mind.No experience is possible anywhere but in the mind, so there is nothing to see other than that seen at the moment of vision. No experience is possible anywhere but in the mind, so there is nothing to meditate upon other than mind. No experience is possible anywhere but in the mind. So there is nothing to do other than what is done in the mind.

No experience is possible anywhere but in the mind, so there is no samaya to be sustained outside the mind. No experience is possible anywhere but in the mind. So there is no goal to be reached that is not in the mind.

The flower sermon

The Flower Sermon

Itis said that Gautama Buddha gathered his disciples one day for atalk, but he remained was completely silent. Some thought he was tired; others thought he was ill.

Silently, the Buddha held up and twirled a flower as his eyes twinkled. Some tried to interpret what this meant, but none of them were correct, except for one whosilently gazed at the flower and broke into a broad smile.

Noticing him, the Buddha acknowledge Mahkyapa'sinsight by saying in essence

Mahakasyapa, you have the true dharma eye, the marvelous mind of the true form of the formless, the subtle Dharma gate that does not rest on words or letters but on a special transmission outside of the scriptures.

I possess the true Dharma eye, the marvelous mind of Nirva, the true form of the formless, the subtle Dharma gate that does not rest on words or letters but is a special transmission outside of the scriptures.

The character and circumstances of our lives are symbolic of our enlightenment. They remain symbolic as long as we do not know we are enlightened. When we recognize that we are enlightened, symbolism (the memes) and the enlightened state become indivisible. When symbolism and the state of enlightenment dissolve into each other, we recognize the primal purity of our own condition.

Even at the level of initial experiences, symbolism can have a powerful effect in sparking our innate ability to comprehend ourselves beyond our habitual conceptual frameworks.

The purpose of symbolism is to effect the dissolution of our habitual conceptual frameworks.

Better start with abandoning faith and magical thinking forever. Then, notice that confusion is co-emergent with our clarity-nature.

It is this very realization that the reality of your own mind is completely pure that is known as the Buddha. Your own mind is primordial purity and buddhahood.

To comprehend that mind is primordial purity and buddhahood is (1) to be accomplished as a Buddha,

(2) to see the face of a Buddha, and

(3) to hold a Buddha in your hand. Therefore, it is sufficient to realize minds reality.

It is not necessary to seek buddhahood anywhere

other than in the mind.

Although one speaks of the nature of reality having many facets, pristine awareness has three. In this ground, neither delusion or non-delusion can be found. Since lack of pure awareness does not exist in the pristine awareness of the primordial purity of the grounds essence, it is beyond enumerations of one and two. Indivisible, in its being it cannot even be found as pristine awareness. Its spontaneous actuality is called pristine awareness. It is unborn, unceasing, and inconceivable, since there is no determining it is an object.
