Nirvana is samsara purified by wisdom - 054

.

Nirvana is samsara purified with wisdom

Possible conclusion: 

All karma is purified by the wisdom of realising its true nature & dynamic.

We may still have the developed conditioning / abilities / skills / knowledge (body, speech & mind; 5 aggregates) but we are no more slaves to them.

We are free from them, not without them.

We are free to create new concepts, views, theories, methods, goals, conditioning, arts ... without grasping, without attachment, without becoming slaves to them either.

Quotes

=======================

Samsara and Nirvana ~ Tulku Urgyen Rinpoche

Samsara is mind turned outwardly, lost in its projections.

Nirvana is mind turned inwardly, recognizing its nature.

-- Tulku Urgyen Rinpoche

=======================

Samsara is an expression of nirvana ~ Mingyur Rinpoche

Samsara is an expression of nirvana,

just as relative reality is an expression of absolute reality.

May we find the dharmakaya, beyond all gaining and rejection.

-- Dudjom Rinpoche

There is a deep sense of contentment. You chuckle from inside as you see the facade of samsara and nirvana; the View will keep you constantly amused, with a little inner smile bubbling away all the time.

One Truth Without Relativity ~ Chรถgyam Trungpa

Seeing the truth as it is, is the goal as well as the path. Confused existence, or samsara, is a complex situation based on passion, aggression, and ignorance. Its essence is turmoil. But unless you relate to passion, aggression, and ignorance as the path—understanding them, working with them, and treading on them—you will not discover the goal. ๐—•๐˜† ๐—ฑ๐—ถ๐˜€๐—ฐ๐—ผ๐˜ƒ๐—ฒ๐—ฟ๐—ถ๐—ป๐—ด ๐˜๐—ต๐—ฒ ๐˜๐—ฟ๐˜‚๐˜๐—ต ๐—ผ๐—ณ ๐—ฐ๐—ผ๐—ป๐—ณ๐˜‚๐˜€๐—ถ๐—ผ๐—ป, ๐—ผ๐—ฟ ๐˜€๐—ฎ๐—บ๐˜€๐—ฎ๐—ฟ๐—ฎ, ๐˜†๐—ผ๐˜‚ ๐—ฎ๐—ฟ๐—ฒ ๐—ฎ๐—น๐˜€๐—ผ ๐—ฑ๐—ถ๐˜€๐—ฐ๐—ผ๐˜ƒ๐—ฒ๐—ฟ๐—ถ๐—ป๐—ด ๐—ฝ๐—ฒ๐—ฎ๐—ฐ๐—ฒ, ๐—ผ๐—ฟ ๐—ป๐—ถ๐—ฟ๐˜ƒ๐—ฎ๐—ป๐—ฎ—๐—ณ๐—ฟ๐—ฒ๐—ฒ๐—ฑ๐—ผ๐—บ ๐—ณ๐—ฟ๐—ผ๐—บ ๐—ฐ๐—ผ๐—ป๐—ณ๐˜‚๐˜€๐—ถ๐—ผ๐—ป.

Things That Tend to Be Misleading ~ Khenpo Tsultrim Rinpoche

If you understand that all the misleading appearances of worldly existence are not intrinsically real, they will not tend to mislead you.

.

If you have attachment to FRIENDS and ENEMIES as being real, they will mislead you.

But if you have equanimity towards both, they will not mislead or deceive you.

.

If you see a lot of change or transition, that will tend to mislead you.

But if you understand the intrinsic nature beyond change, it will not be misleading.

.

If you cling to the reality of BIRTH and DEATH, there is much deception.

But if you realize there is no birth and death, there’s no deception.

.

If you believe in the existence of suffering, there’s much deception.

But if you realize there’s no suffering, there’s no deception.

.

==> If you believe that SELF and OTHER are separate, there’s much deception.

But if you recognize that they are not two separate things, there’s no deception. <==

.

If you understand this true nature of deception, discursive thoughts will be liberated in their own place (i.e. ๐˜๐—ฟ๐—ฎ๐—ป๐˜€๐—ฐ๐—ฒ๐—ป๐—ฑ๐—ฒ๐—ป๐—ฐ๐—ฒ / ๐—ฝ๐˜‚๐—ฟ๐—ถ๐—ณ๐—ถ๐—ฐ๐—ฎ๐˜๐—ถ๐—ผ๐—ป / ๐˜€๐—ฒ๐—น๐—ณ-๐—น๐—ถ๐—ฏ๐—ฒ๐—ฟ๐—ฎ๐˜๐—ถ๐—ผ๐—ป ๐—ผ๐—ณ ๐—ฎ๐—น๐—น ๐—ฑ๐—ต๐—ฎ๐—ฟ๐—บ๐—ฎ๐˜€ -- all dualities -- ๐˜๐—ต๐—ฟ๐—ผ๐˜‚๐—ด๐—ต ๐˜„๐—ถ๐˜€๐—ฑ๐—ผ๐—บ ๐—ผ๐—ณ ๐—ฟ๐—ฒ๐—ฎ๐—น๐—ถ๐˜€๐—ถ๐—ป๐—ด ๐˜๐—ต๐—ฒ๐—ถ๐—ฟ ๐˜๐—ฟ๐˜‚๐—ฒ ๐—ป๐—ฎ๐˜๐˜‚๐—ฟ๐—ฒ & ๐—ฑ๐˜†๐—ป๐—ฎ๐—บ๐—ถ๐—ฐ).

The source of all our suffering ~ Khenpo Tsultrim Rinpoche

Our instinctive, emotional attachment or clinging to a vague notion of self is the source of all our suffering. From the idea of ‘SELF’ comes that of ‘OTHER’. It is from the interaction of ‘self and ‘other’ that desire, hatred and delusion arise. There are many kinds of desire including greed, envy and miserliness. Hatred can take the form of jealousy, anger and resentment. Delusion includes mental dullness, stupidity and confusion. From these unhealthy mental states arise actions motivated by them, and their results. The results take the form of all kinds of sufferings, which one cannot escape as long as one identifies with the ‘self’ who is suffering.

.

Thus the only way to remove one’s suffering is to realize not-self (i.e. no-self of all dharmas). The wisdom mind that realizes not-self is like light removing darkness. Just as darkness cannot exist in the light, so ๐˜€๐˜‚๐—ณ๐—ณ๐—ฒ๐—ฟ๐—ถ๐—ป๐—ด ๐—ฐ๐—ฎ๐—ป๐—ป๐—ผ๐˜ ๐—ฒ๐˜…๐—ถ๐˜€๐˜ ๐—ถ๐—ป ๐˜๐—ต๐—ฒ ๐—น๐—ถ๐—ด๐—ต๐˜ ๐—ผ๐—ณ ๐˜๐—ต๐—ฒ ๐˜„๐—ถ๐˜€๐—ฑ๐—ผ๐—บ ๐—บ๐—ถ๐—ป๐—ฑ.

From: H.E. Garchen Rinpoche’s Commentary on The Aspiration Prayer of Kuntuzangpo

So there is a single basis (Ground) and there are two paths and two fruitions. The path of accomplishing other’s benefits that leads to the fruition of happiness and the path of self-cherishing that leads to the fruition of suffering.

.

Two paths here do not refer to the physical paths that we walk on, rather they refer to ๐—ฑ๐—ถ๐—ณ๐—ณ๐—ฒ๐—ฟ๐—ฒ๐—ป๐˜ ๐˜„๐—ฎ๐˜†๐˜€ ๐—ผ๐—ณ ๐˜๐—ต๐—ถ๐—ป๐—ธ๐—ถ๐—ป๐—ด ๐—ถ๐—ป ๐—ผ๐˜‚๐—ฟ ๐—บ๐—ถ๐—ป๐—ฑ ๐—ฑ๐—ฒ๐—ฝ๐—ฒ๐—ป๐—ฑ๐—ถ๐—ป๐—ด ๐—ผ๐—ป ๐—ธ๐—ป๐—ผ๐˜„๐—ถ๐—ป๐—ด ๐—ฎ๐—ป๐—ฑ ๐—ป๐—ผ๐˜ ๐—ธ๐—ป๐—ผ๐˜„๐—ถ๐—ป๐—ด ๐˜๐—ต๐—ฒ ๐˜„๐—ผ๐—ฟ๐—ธ๐—ถ๐—ป๐—ด ๐—ผ๐—ณ ๐—ธ๐—ฎ๐—ฟ๐—บ๐—ฎ (karma and its fruition). ...

I was really amazed by the difference between knowing and not knowing the working of karma (karma and its fruition) and thus how the mind views things. This is what determines our happiness (nirvana) and suffering (samsara). ...

They all can ๐—ฎ๐˜๐˜๐—ฎ๐—ถ๐—ป ๐˜๐—ต๐—ฒ ๐˜€๐˜๐—ฎ๐˜๐—ฒ ๐—ผ๐—ณ ๐—˜๐—ป๐—น๐—ถ๐—ด๐—ต๐˜๐—ฒ๐—ป๐—บ๐—ฒ๐—ป๐˜ ๐—ถ๐—ณ ๐˜๐—ต๐—ฒ๐˜† ๐˜‚๐—ป๐—ฑ๐—ฒ๐—ฟ๐˜€๐˜๐—ฎ๐—ป๐—ฑ ๐˜๐—ต๐—ฒ ๐—ธ๐—ฎ๐—ฟ๐—บ๐—ฎ (essence, nature, and dynamic of the karmic cycle) that they created in the past.

If you do not understand the workings of the karma and you are not aware, then you are transforming happiness into suffering. You are transforming friends into enemies. Our fortune and riches may become the cause of miseries. We can only find suffering. This is one path and

May they all attain Enlightenment means may they all be free from suffering, may they resolve their own suffering by understanding the workings of the karma. ...
