The Creator

An earnest, true Lankavatarian adept of the Unborn Mind-school should recognize and be fully convinced that this triple world is nothing but a complex manifestation of one`s mental activities; that it is devoid of selfness and its belongings. That there are no strivings, no comings and no goings. In light of the Lanka, One should recognize and accept the fact that this triple world is manifested and imagined as real only under the influence of habit-energy that has been accumulated since the beginning-less past, by reason of memory, false-imagination, false-reasoning as well as attachments to the multiplicities of objects and reactions in close relationship and in conformity to ideas of body-property-and-its-master, the imaginary mind. read more

Who’s Controlling the Transmission?

What have you to say concerning those who are adverse to the teachings?

In this late-era dharma-ending age it’s not surprising that there are those who may encounter these teachings and will shake their heads in wonder about all this Unborn Mind business. They rely exclusively upon immediate sense impressions that are compilations of a skhandic induced naivety; it is little wonder that such a worldling can begin to fathom even a first glimpse into the nature of this true vehicle of salvific light. 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. It does not Lord over apparent creation, and It never judges. It always IS and there was never a time when It was not.  When you are in tune with the Unborn then you are in tune with your innate Self-nature. Pure. Without the stink of anthropomorphism. Consider the apparent saintly ones. They have the stench of the charnel house about them. They are never in tune with their own innate Unbornness. It fact they are always against it and hence they self-torture themselves. In turn they cause their own suffering. If you find yourself in incessant suffering and always standing in judgment over yourself and others, then you are not in tune with the Unborn. The Unborn does not wear the false-hood of the executioner. It is the Deathless Master over all your fears. So, celebrate your own Unbornness, it will lighten and enlighten your spirit. read more
