Closing Reflection: Unborn I Ching

It’s interesting how the 36 hexagrams that comprise this singular I Ching system ends on a number that coincides with another number (45) constituting the whole of the Dragon Mind of Zen Tarot, in that when respectively broken down and added up equals the number 9. As mentioned in that also singular series, the Arcanum number 9 is assigned to the Hermit, or the one who seeks deep spiritual solitude. read more

36. Progression

Ratnasambhava’s Radiance

The very Earth, Ratnasambhava’s footstool, is ablaze with an inner-vivacity radiating in all ten directions. The Noble One now reflects in his Self the glory of Primordial virtues. The time is ripe for advancing forward guided by Amitabha’s Eternal Flame of Discriminating Wisdom shimmering high above the hexagram. It is also a time to reflect just how far we have distanced ourselves from the darkness of inferior influences. One also recognizes that this progression was not self-induced, but far more a Divine Initiative that was emblazoned within the heart. read more

Vairochana the Cosmic Buddha

Vairochana is the Cosmic Master, the Matrix of the Buddha Sun and is representative of the unobstructed field of the Dharmakaya.

33. Obeisance

Amoghasiddhi Submissive

Paying homage to the Primordials is a propitious responsibility. Amoghasiddhi is submissive to Vairochana’s divine and Dharmatic Rule. Respect and allegiance to the Dark Principle latent within the soul is a lost art. Recover that art now and know the Buddhagnosis that is reserved for those few Noble Ones who have made their abode in the Sugatagarbha. Disengaging from all superfluous tasks and doing the one necessary thing is the beginning of Noble Wisdom. The one necessary thing is turning-about from all defiled garbha and laying your burden down at the feet of the Tathagatas. read more

Amoghasiddhi at Rest

Discern the proper posture that is right for you and enter into the stillness. Nothing exists but the Right Position that radiates the calm serenity of the Unborn. You ARE the stillness—stillness upon stillness—as with the hexagram depicting two mountains conjoined, Amoghasiddhi the still-one as his sacred mudra (Abhaya) issues a FULL STOP to all karmic activity. read more
