How a Lankavatarian becomes impregnated

Laura Iverson Suppose you were to awaken one day and discover that what you once conceived to be “you” unraveled and revealed itself to be a combination of five different parts all vying for attention: a concretized formal entity that is comprised of sensate impressions; these sensate impressions suddenly branch out and perceive its apparent environment through the medium of conflicting pleasurable or disagreeable feelings; suddenly the scene shifts again as everything undergoes a morphosis Read more [...]

The Unborn is not God

God and the Unborn are not the same. The former is based upon an anthropomorphic myth that God has a personality. There is no person, no personality in the Unborn. When you embrace this concept of God then you are limiting yourself, creating boundaries, even judgmental ones. The Unborn is Unbound, limitless like the clear, boundless sky. The God Jehovah is a jealous, judgmental God. His fictional creation will come to an end one day because it was a fiction all along. The Unborn is not a creator. Read more [...]

Can you celebrate the 100,000 suns?

Can you celebrate the 100,000 suns? Such will be the gamut of your Bardo experience. In the Bardo of Dharmatā, the Dharmatā Buddha will shower you with the primordial light of 100,000 suns. In this pivotal moment of reunification and refulgent immersion, one will not be burnt to toast but instead all that has been false in you throughout the millennia will dissipate like a young moth unfurling her wings from its darkened and stinking cocoon.  Do you see this glimmer of recognition? For the Read more [...]

Bodhipower—yours to use or abuse

Left to its own devices mind is constantly on self-destruct alert. It is always living on the periphery of life, neglecting its absolute center which houses the antidote--the only means of avoiding that self-destruct button. The mind needs to re-code its priorities, today there is no other choice, either one reboots the mind-set or else global suicide will be the result. Bodhipower itself is neutral, it is either in the service of Self-awakening and transcendence or, by way of inversion, in the Read more [...]

Pleasurable Prajñāpāramitā

Pleasurable Prajñāpāramitā ushers-in a boundless Buddha-realm that is devoid of all contingent sentimentalities such as sentient beings who bake pies infused with discriminatory ingredients that never satisfies the oversaturated diet of superfluous notions like samsara or nirvana. Thus nothing is neither gained nor lost. The herald of such a no-nonsense realm is the Cittadhatu ennobled with the Element of Truth thus ending all habitual vicissitudes of a once diseased consciousness that labored Read more [...]

The Mystic Eye

Do you see the eye directly in the center of your forehead? If not, take note that It sees you and promises you entrance to the gateless gate of the Unborn Mind. As such you will never see it or know it’s there in an ordinary sense because It is the Primordial Eye of Noble Wisdom Itself. It's the eye of the Deathless Dharmakaya looking back upon Itself. But this watchful Dragon-Eye invites you to enter into the Imageless domain of the Shining Ones. It is only in this fashion that the scales Read more [...]

The Cosmic Pendulum

Uwe Bremer Swinging aimlessly in the desert of the mind, the Cosmic Pendulum continues to apparently pin-you down with its awful perpetual momentum--back and forth, back and forth. Such has been your imagined existence throughout the endless kalpas, caught between going back and forth into apparent existences--new faces and thrills but the same ol' swing mesmerizing you time and time again. Like a little bird with a broken wing there is no possibility of becoming free and taking flight. But Read more [...]

Birthing the Bodhichild

Within you is the Buddha-seed or gotra, which we refer here to as the Bodhichild. But this child cannot be birthed in a forced or worse yet, in an artificial manner. Its potentiality is already there, it just needs a little coaxing through proper nourishment via the Buddhadharma. It's there but you have been carrying it for so long that it may result in a still-birth. This is the direct cause of your inner-anguish, you sense something is there inside that wants to come out, that wants to be born, Read more [...]

Is the Unborn A Religion?

We would not want one to confuse Unborn Mind Zen with some form of new religion. Religion, at its heart, comes from the Latin, religare--meaning to be bound to. Much of the ongoing chaos in the world is directly tied to religion. Especially when people are indeed so “bound to it” that they lose all sense of responsible reason. Many continue to be slaughtered all in the name of religion, something that has been ongoing since time immemorial. And without realizing it, people are slaughtering Read more [...]
