The Motherly Buddha Tantra: Epilogue

This series on the Kulayarāja Tantra proved to be singularly about a Mother Tantra. The Primordial mouthpiece Samantabhadrī bespoke of Bodhicitta as the all-manifesting energy (which in this tantra is cast as a feminine energy) or the Undivided Mind of awakened Actuosity. The key words throughout were actuating-essence, or an actuating potency that propels the pristine awareness from its stillness to manifestation in all dharmata. Indeed, this actuation-mode is the function of the Unborn as Read more [...]

The Cuckoo of Presence

The Samantabhadrī Discourse continues: (Chapter 30) Listen, O’ Great Bodhi Being! Your very Self is Me, Myself Am You. This is the Self-Same Realization since the Primordial beginning. Be mindful that anyone who is preoccupied with a time-factor in their meditations do so at their own peril and will not achieve any imaginary goals. If one should mindfully say, “I will not focus on any desires”, that is declared a self-empty sign in itself. Since my ultimate Self-Nature is the Read more [...]

The Five Sisters

The Samantabhadrī Discourse continues: [Chapter 23] Great Bodhi-Being, Listen! Because all existence is a reflection of Mind’s Perfect Actuosity, there is no need to resort to doctrinal formulation’s concerning Its already Natural Order. Yogins intuitively grasp this and come to rest in the cradle of Suchness without any sense of striving or achieving. The main realization here is to refrain from thinking and to abide simply and effortlessly like the boundless blue-sky. [Chapter Read more [...]

The Antidote to all smallness

*You will notice some jumping-around with the numbered sequence in these chapters. Some are just supporting subject matter already covered. What follows henceforth will be chapters that introduce new insights for reflection. The Samantabhadrī Discourse continues: [Chapter 22] Great Bodhi-Being, Listen! For My Natural-Order to remain foremost in mind at all times and under all circumstances the following teachings are of paramount importance. The Non-Action of my pathless-path cannot Read more [...]

The Truth About Enlightenment

The Samantabhadrī Discourse continues: [Chapter 15] Listen, Great Bodhi-Being! My own Being is Self-evident. In this respect I Am actualizing you. By virtue of this Self-Evident Nature, you are a manifestation of Me; thus make this Actualization your own. If you do not recognize Herself in you, you thereby abandon your own Beingness. Remain in Her as She Is in you. Lay waste to methodologies that are mere causal effects masquerading as your True-Self. By these feeble attempts at mind-purification Read more [...]

Who Is Worthy?

The Samantabhadrī Discourse continues: [Chapter 13] Listen, great Bodhi-Being! I teach only the Root Source. Outside of this supernal rootedness whatever is taught to be revealed is surface chatter minus the Root. My Suchness is the Root. If one discerns one’s own Pure Mindfulness to be this Perfect Suchness, one will no longer mindlessly dwell in a stage where just clinging to the words of a Buddha is apparently sufficient. It is not. By virtue of this insight one will come to master Read more [...]

Further Disclosures of the True Nature

Art by Sarahjagdip Chapter Nine continues the discourse on the Tantra vehicles that are linked to cause and effect, thus they are insufficient in light of the Great Perfection. Chapter Ten then reverses the downplay of those vehicles, indicating that there is still value inherent in all of them—because Dzogchen does not impose any limits. Thus, Samantabhadrī is the all-encompassing One and permits many different schools under her roof. Ultimately, however, it is always the Dzogchen teachings Read more [...]

The Four Tantric Yogas

8. The Four Tantric Yogas The Samantabhadrī Discourse continues: “Suchness is devoid of one in the All of no-oneness. My Unborn Beingness is the Such that reflects through objectified dharmata. As such, each apparent separate object contains the seedness of the Such in unison with ITs undivided nature. Contemplating this empowers one to gaze inwardly into the Core-Such. As My Beingness is the Core-Such in Its Self-Actualization of non-dualness, there are four yogas that emanate from Read more [...]

The Inexplicable

Photo by Kevin Krejci 7. The Inexplicable [The following chapter is a paraphrase of the Divine Teachings of Samantabhadrī in her own singular fashion, as witnessed by this channel of her love.] I teach that the fathomless One transcends all known objects of perception and continually dwells in the primordial and stateless state of the Great Mahasunya, thus transcending the likeness of the expanding skyline itself. Whatever you perceive is a reflection of my own beingness, whether it Read more [...]

The Wonderment of the Self-Actualizing Mind

6. The Wonderment of the Self-Actualizing Mind Then the [Supreme Source], mind of perfect purity, gave this sermon [in which She declared] that the perfection of all things rests in Her (Samantabhadrī) own being: "Oh great bodhisattva, listen to these words! I am the [Supreme Source], and I have arranged all things from the primordial. I made the things apparent. I will show you My actuating essence. After I show you My own being I shall point out its meaning in words, and sounds, and Read more [...]
