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 [...]

Karmic Liberation: The Great Synthesis

Tibetan, or more specifically, Vajrayana Buddhism, offers the great synthesis of all that has transpired in this series: Ritual prayer to lighten the burden of the Bardo; Dhyana-techniques to bring the effects of karma to their completion; Divine Union with the karma-family and Amoghasiddhi; the Yoga of the Thatness; Dogzchen rigpa and Samantabhadra's matrix. The Tibetan people developed a unique road-map of the effects of Dependent Origination, The Wheel of Existence: In this depiction, 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. The adept has wandered aimlessly for endless kalpas amidst dark and strange vistas of endless ignorance and dissatisfaction; Amitabha’s fire now breaks-through the disparaging Read more [...]

Babes in the Woods

4. Babes in the Woods Amoghasiddhi Rising In comparison to the Primordials, aspiring spiritual adepts are like lost “babes in the woods.” This hexagram counsels that one needs to utilize the Unborn I Ching as a lantern shining luminous light that leads one safely through the Dark Wood of Error. This is a representation of Amoghasiddhi Rising, as his Luminous Green Light is the “All Accomplishing Wisdom” that lifts the ascetic from samsaric incarceration to the Enlightening-Spirit-Sphere Read more [...]

The Yoga of Amoghasiddhi

1.0 Amoghasiddhi is the Matrix of Enlightened Action (Karmaprasiddhi) Freedom from the Karmic-Cycle is through the door of the All-Accomplishing Wisdom, as the Green Light of Amoghasiddhi reveals the Enlightening-Spirit of Bodhi. In such manner are Buddhaic-activities performed. 2.0 Prayer of Aspiration (accentuated with one-pointed concentration): As I have wandered perpetually in the diurnal darkness of samsara, May the Luminous Green-Light path (Accomplishing Wisdom) of Blessed Read more [...]

Amoghasiddhi’s Key

As was mentioned in our previous blog, Amoghasiddhi rises to the occasion and releases (like that figure of a coiled snake in the base, or root chakra) the Sambodhic-juice that sparks all the other chakras and is always successful in his mission; this is why he is known as the All-Accomplishing Wisdom. Breaking this down even deeper: One drop of semen creates Oceans of Samsara; the yogic practitioner who can transmute this volitional action by turning the Amoghasiddhic Alchemical key will Read more [...]

The Presentation of Vajrasattva

FOUR: THE PRESENTATION OF VAJRASATTVA Arising from the vajropama-samādhi, the Elect discovered himself being drawn towards a chapel of light whose entrance appeared in the center of the antechamber. He was then drawn to a rectangular pool of water within which he was slowly submerged.   The surface of the pool reflected the Mirror-like Wisdom as personified by Dhyanī Buddha Akṣhobhya. From within this watery-skin of Akṣhobhya, the Elect with one-pointedness of Mind discerned 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 [...]
