Namen

The constructing of appearances (nimitta) created by delusion is the characteristic mark of Paratantra (dependence) knowledge; the giving of names to those appearances [regarding them as real individual existences] is characteristic of the imagination. When the constructing of appearances and names, which come from the union of conditions and realities, no more takes place, we have the characteristic mark of perfected knowledge (parinishpanna). This is in reference to the five-dharmas: Read more [...]

The Four Wisdoms

28. Q: It’s stated that the eight consciousnesses are turned into the Four Wisdoms, and then the Four Wisdoms bind together forming the trikaya; which, then, of these eight states will pool together to form one Buddha-wisdom and then, which Wisdoms are then said to be the transformation into One Consciousness? A: The five senses (smell, taste, etc.) relate to the five states of consciousness thereby forming the Perfecting Wisdom. Intellect (sixth state), or the mental consciousness, becomes Read more [...]

The Wanderer

17. The Wanderer Fire on Amoghasiddhi’s Mountain The hexagram depicts Amitabha’s all-discerning light shining brightly atop Amoghasiddhi’s mountain of resilient protective stance of reaching the highest peak of enlightened spiritual perfection—the all-accomplishing radiant hue of  perfected wisdomocity.

Abundance

10. Abundance Amitabha Rising The Light of Spiritual Brilliance overflows in abundance. This is Amitabha rising and his Padma-field reflects infinite Bodhi-emissions emanating from the Mind of all Tathagatas. This is the time to allow your Noble-Virtue to shine throughout this present saha world and worlds beyond. Amitabha’s symbol of ‘Fire’ represents unhindered illumination and this illumination is now meant to be employed. Although this illumination is boundless, one Read more [...]

The Yoga of Amitabha

1.0 Amitabha is the Matrix of the Blessed Lotus The Padma (Lotus) Family houses the Sacred Jewel (Bodhi-Pearl) of Transcendent Wisdom. 1.1 Its mantra is OM MANI PADME HUM Praise to the Mani-Pearl in the Lotus. The closing “HUM” is a mystical expression that expels all evil. It’s a kind of “Mystic-War Cry” that stops the enemy (all adversarial entities and propensities) dead in their tracks. 2.0 The Padma-field is like a shield of Wisdom that transforms the yogin’s perception Read more [...]

Flight of the Phoenix

The Tibetan monk-yogin who had led the group to the cave was in actuality a Bön wizard known as a ngagspa. But he was a Black Ngagspa, formed in the Dark and Forbidden Arts, and his intent upon this Nazi-financed expedition was to seek-out the Vril-ya—descendents of a purported antediluvian civilization who lived in deep subterranean caverns in the heart of Tibet—and obtain from them the all-powerful “Vril”, a mystically-charged fluid that could be shaped and harnessed to do the will Read more [...]

The Mandala of the Five Dhyanī Buddhas

THREE: THE MAṆḌALA OF THE FIVE DHYANĪ BUDDHAS  Then the Lord discoursed upon the Five Skandhas.  “Like an infernal Black Sun nailed to the dark fabric of space, *Mara’s Malignant Five hurl- forth their accursed aggregations of the no-self:  The Demons of Form, (Rupa) crawling along like concretized-crabs leaving their sensorial impressions where’re they creep…  The Demons of Sensation (Vendana), fumbling about upon weak-perceptional limbs, judging what’re they Read more [...]

Eremitical Dhyani Meditations

Over the course of living the Lankavatarian eremitical lifestyle, I have been discerning the value of developing a type of monastic-rhythm to the day. A good rule of thumb is to pay homage to the Five Dhyani Buddhas. Their transforming energies, in particular through counteracting the five skandhas, are most helpful in generating the Bodhi Recollective Resolve. This also strengthens one’s Sambodhic-link with the Tathagatas thus continually energizing bodhicitta. I’ve discovered that being Read more [...]

The Land of the Setting Sun: Bardo 3, Amitabha

Of the Five Dhyani Buddhas, the one that stands out prominently in terms of popular-following and devotion is Amitabha Buddha. Tradition asserts that Bodhisattva Dharmakara proclaimed that when he attained Buddhahood (Amida Buddha), that anyone who should call upon his name would achieve entrance into his Western Pure Land Province. His mantra (one popular variable being Namu Amida Butsu that is mantra-like [constant repetition]] in scope) chanted by untold numbers throughout the millennia, intoned Read more [...]
