Contemplative Sojourn VI

Greetings from Vajragoni here at Unborn Mind Zen!

It seems hard to fathom yet another Blog season has come to its conclusion. We began our season back in August and the most recent series was Unborn Light Reiki, one that was originally published in 2004 and highlights a new Reiki Modality incorporating principles from Unborn Mind Zen. It was initiated just after a series entitled, Vasubandhu and the Absolute—a lengthy study on the Madhyāntavibhāgabhāṣya+ṭīkā, incorporating the scholarship of Theodor Stcherbatsky and Dutch scholar David Lasar Friedmann, both written back in the mid-1930’s. This Western approach, unlike contemporary Tibetan editions, offers a greater emphasis on the “world-view” of the original compilers, like Vasubandhu. In February we offered a series on The Zen Teaching of Instantaneous Awakening by Dazhu Huihai. In keeping with the convention found in blogs here at Unborn Mind Zen, this version of his work was written in the Light and Spirit of the Unborn and its Lankavatarian groundwork. Ours is a Living Tradition, and what is offered here represents an authentic and vibrant spirituality that has been formed and cultivated through many years of study, contemplation, and disciplined dhyana resulting in a Noble Self-realization that the Great Unborn Spirit alone can bestow. read more
