Noble Wisdom’s Child: Bardo 3, Bodhidhatu

The 12th century Saint and Rhineland Mystic, Hildegard von Bingen—also known as Sybil of the Rhine, once reflected on the nature of Noble Wisdom:

“I am Wisdom. Mine is the blast of the resounding Word through which all creation came to be, and I quickened all things with my breath so that not one of them is mortal in its kind; for I am Life. Indeed I am Life, whole and undivided — not hewn from any stone, or budded from branches, or rooted in virile strength; but all that lives has its root in Me. For Wisdom is the root whose blossom is the resounding Word.”

Her understanding is not far from our present proceedings as it presents the mystical undercurrents that bespeak the next stage of mind development: bodhi-dhatu…
(*note—the following is highly concentrated bodhi concerning this most Noble Mind-Revelation)

The Buddha-gnosis of the Tathagatas now unfolds Noble Wisdom’s child as the gateway beyond the karmadhatu into Pure and non-discriminative wisdom (Buddhi ), because its certainty now rests on the full supracognition of the dharmadhatu. As this realization expands, the Ariyan Mind develops from this very bodhiseed through the hearing propensity (dhammasota) resulting from the issuance of the dharmadhatu. Bodhidhatu is the enlightened gotra (seed) issuing-forth from the dharmadhatu as it counteracts all the defiled Alayic-seeds of the body consciousness, even to the very root of its bondedness with the material-laden mind (rūpāvacarādicitta). It now totally affiliates (ānulomika) and is yoked (saṃyoga) with all Buddhas and Bodhisattvas from the immeasurable buddhafields of the ten directions and knows them as inseparable-bodhi within the Dharmakaya; it is thus unequivocally bonded with the Tathata Family (tathāgatagotra). All this is reflective of practicing an advanced dhyāna that excludes both form and formless realms. It now knows the full import of Mind-Only. Hence, it is the full cultivation of this Tathatic Mind-Seed (Suchchild).
