Empty awareness - 113

.

What is this empty-awareness? And how to perceive it?

In the mandala of the vajra sky

We do not see any extreme or middle,

Any existence or non-existence.

Self-luminous ๐—ฎ๐˜„๐—ฎ๐—ฟ๐—ฒ๐—ป๐—ฒ๐˜€๐˜€ has no extreme or middle.

.

An ๐—ฎ๐˜„๐—ฎ๐—ฟ๐—ฒ๐—ป๐—ฒ๐˜€๐˜€ of wisdom will have no position or side.

๐—”๐˜„๐—ฎ๐—ฟ๐—ฒ๐—ป๐—ฒ๐˜€๐˜€ that is clear does not act to obstruct anything.

In our uncontrived and natural state

We have nothing to contemplate.

.

Self-originating ๐—ฎ๐˜„๐—ฎ๐—ฟ๐—ฒ๐—ป๐—ฒ๐˜€๐˜€ is brought to its conclusion.

This is not gradual.

It is clear in a single moment.

.

We do not visualize any self or other.

We do not contemplate anything at all.

In ๐—ฎ๐˜„๐—ฎ๐—ฟ๐—ฒ๐—ป๐—ฒ๐˜€๐˜€ that is beyond clarity,

Everything is clear.

.

Experiential ๐—ฎ๐˜„๐—ฎ๐—ฟ๐—ฒ๐—ป๐—ฒ๐˜€๐˜€ is free from conceptualizations.

It is clear to our direct perception

And is not a visualization.

Self-originating wisdom is a transmission of self-luminosity.

.

The ๐—ฎ๐˜„๐—ฎ๐—ฟ๐—ฒ๐—ป๐—ฒ๐˜€๐˜€ of clarity

Is the supreme samadhi.

It is like the blazing light of the vajra sun.

Unvisualized clarity cuts through our conceptualizations.

.

Non-contemplation

Is itself an extreme of contemplation.

Misunderstanding

Is itself a space of understanding.

Quotes

Titre 3

«Thus, when we awaken, 

finding ourselves in a state of presence, 

.

we look with a bare attention 

into the face of that very state of presence 

to see what may be there.... 

.

Thereby, a nondual primal ๐—ฎ๐˜„๐—ฎ๐—ฟ๐—ฒ๐—ป๐—ฒ๐˜€๐˜€ becomes present.»

.

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

Everything we see, hear, and feel is actually an appearance projected by our mind. So if our mind is filled with loving-kindness, appearances will reflect the pure qualities of that mind. We will see the whole universe in the qualities of the Buddha of Loving-Kindness and his Pure Land.

The Swift Path to Realization ~ Jamgon Kongtrul Lodro Thaye

.

Now that you have this unique opportunity, free and well-favored,

Use it, I beg you, to practice Dharma for the benefit of future lives.

.

Human life is like the sun shining between the clouds:

.

It can be gone in a moment, with nothing accomplished.

And regret at the moment of death will be to no avail.

So practice straightaway with diligent enthusiasm. 

.

The Dharma is vast and it has many forms,

But the teachings that bring Buddhahood in a single lifetime are the two ultimate systems of Mahฤmudrฤ and Dzogchen.

.

The Mahฤmudrฤ of bliss and emptiness on the path of means

Is the actual practice of the tantrayana,

But those who practice it are few and far between.

The Mahฤmudrฤ of the innate on the path of liberation

Is an easier practice offering great reward at little risk,

And is of benefit to all, regardless of capacity. 

.

For this, take the practice to heart in its essential form.

Motivate yourself with reflection on impermanence and death,

And limit all unnecessary activity and projects.

Generate renunciation from the depths of your heart

For the whole of saแนƒsฤra and its three realms.

Purify your mind with the preliminaries in the beginning. 

And let your devotion develop and increase.

.

With your body in the correct posture,

Look into ๐˜๐—ต๐—ฒ ๐—ฒ๐˜€๐˜€๐—ฒ๐—ป๐—ฐ๐—ฒ ๐—ผ๐—ณ ๐—บ๐—ถ๐—ป๐—ฑ (๐—ฒ๐—บ๐—ฝ๐˜๐˜†-๐—ฎ๐˜„๐—ฎ๐—ฟ๐—ฒ๐—ป๐—ฒ๐˜€๐˜€), 

be it moving or still.

Whether it is in motion or not,

Its nature remains the same.

So settle in an unaltered experience of its essence.

.

It's crucial that you're ๐—ฐ๐—ผ๐—ป๐˜€๐˜๐—ฎ๐—ป๐˜๐—น๐˜† ๐—บ๐—ถ๐—ป๐—ฑ๐—ณ๐˜‚๐—น ๐—ฎ๐—ป๐—ฑ ๐—ฎ๐˜„๐—ฎ๐—ฟ๐—ฒ.

When a stable stillness of mind develops,

Then, without deliberate clinging or fixation,

Blend it with sensory perceptions and states of mind,

And thereby integrate your thoughts into the path.

.

When seeing a fleeting thought in the present moment,

By viewing its essence with penetrating presence,

It is freed by itself and dawns as ๐™™๐™๐™–๐™ง๐™ข๐™–๐™ ฤ๐™ฎ๐™–.

There's no other activity in the essence of mind,

So don't manipulate mind in the next moment.

If, without trying to apply a patch to your thoughts,

You remain relaxed, undistracted while not meditating,

In the natural flow of genuine mind, as it actually abides,

You will swiftly become a powerful lord of realization. 

.

In response to a request from Dharmatara,

Who is a supreme teacher and guide,

This brief summary was offered

By the kusฤli Jamgon Kongtrul Lodrรถ Thaye.

Realization ~ Mingyur Rinpoche

.

Experience is always changing, like the movement of clouds against the sky. Realization – the stable awareness of the true nature of your mind – is like the sky itself, an unchanging background against which shifting experience occur.

Allowing Space ~ Tsoknyi Rinpoche

.

If we can allow some space within our awareness and rest there, we can respect our troubling thoughts and emotions, allow them to come, and let them go. Our lives may be complicated on the outside, but we remain simple, easy, and open on the inside.

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

Examine yourself ~ Tilopa

.

Lo! This is self-awareness!

It surpasses all avenues of speech and thought.

I, Tilopa, have nothing to reveal.

You should know it yourself through inward examination.

.

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

No matter how dangerous and destructive a hurricane can be, inside its centre there is the stillness.

Likewise, no matter what is happening in your life, no matter how much suffering it has caused you, there is great peace inside (primordial awareness), waiting to be discovered.

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

My very own nature ~ Trulshik Rinpoche

The primordial ground, the great, ever-pure primordial emptiness,

Which is free from all elaboration and change,

Is the very nature of uncompounded and self-arising awareness:

Bless me so that I may recognize the view, my very own nature.

.
