Ratnasambhava’s Reverent Devotion


In this hexagram the Primordial Qi-energies (the inner yogic-heat) meet up directly with the Tri-Ratna-field of Ratnasambhava that reverences the three-fold Dharmatic-element in sentient beings. It is through this heightened devotion that whatever is willed can be supernally accomplished in the Unborn.

Proper devotion fuels the ability to fully engage the Living Matrix of the Tathagatas in reverence and truth. The aim here is not to fulfill the rabid desires of the carnal mind, but rather to directly feed on the inner energy reserves of the Shining Ones THAT are perpetually in sync with primordial-purposes for the Higher-Good.

This devotion also brings to mind the reverence of past sages and teachers who preceded us on the path to Noble Self-realization. Their spiritual-fortitude instilled perseverance and undying forbearance in the face of all hazards and vulnerabilities that align the Diamond-way to Self-transformation.
