The True Meaning of the Word

The celebration of the Incarnation, a significant feast in Christianity, brings to light the early infancy stories found in the gospels of Matthew and Luke. These narratives center around the birth of the Christ-child, who is known as the Prince of Peace. Interestingly, there are striking parallels between these accounts and various spiritual traditions that span across centuries. One notable example is found in many Pagan motifs, such as the tale of the Egyptian Deity Horus, who was miraculously conceived by the virgin-Goddess Isis. To protect her child from harm, Isis sought refuge in a secluded place. This motif of a miraculous birth of a long-awaited Messiah can be found in numerous traditions. read more

Aloneness

Aloneness and loneliness are two contrasting experiences that often get misunderstood. Loneliness is characterized by a deep yearning for companionship, a desperate cry for someone to be there to alleviate the feeling of emptiness. However, this longing is ultimately futile because even if someone is present, the cycle of loneliness can start anew if they were to leave. This is particularly evident in the lives of married couples, where the death of one spouse can leave the other feeling the unbearable absence of their love, questioning the purpose of life itself. read more

New Meditation Manual

Our Summer Publication is out now and offers a splendid format for your practice. From the preface:

This book of meditations is dedicated to our fine readership at UnbornMind.com. Together over the years we have spiritually sojourned through the heights and the depths of the Buddhadharma—that great wordless teaching that is the full and unequivocal call to awaken, through the unparalleled aid of undivided awareness power (bodhi) to the True Nature of Mind as it is in Itself. This present text consists of excerpts from our various teaching blogs revolving around the Sutras, the Zen Masters themselves, and to a great degree what UnbornMind Zen has in common with the boundless Dzogchen teachings. The Noble Prajñāpāramitā is also here. Spending quality time with these reflections will alert you to the one thing necessary: turning-about from all inadequate phenomena and resting securely in the undivided embrace of the Unborn alone. Ours is a singular spiritual convention, dating back to the earliest adepts of the Lankavatara Sutra itself. In alignment with the Lanka we hold that by reason of the habit energy of erroneous discrimination and false reasoning that has been going on since beginningless time, mind has been duped and prevented from Recollecting the sole exit from this illusory and burning theatre: the Unborn Light of countless Buddhas and Bodhisattvas. By firm faith in the Buddhadharma whose Root Source is the Unborn Buddha Mind one’s transcendence is assured. Join us now and enter via these timeless meditations into the great depository of Noble Wisdom and the only journey worth taking—the journey of Self-awakening. The design of the 51-page coil-bound book is intended for meditation purposes and is color illustrated. A most handsome addition to your practice. read more

I’m feeling very weak and am not presently able to do any blogging. Wanted to let you know but I’m afraid it’s going to be some time before this horrible thing passes. read more
