As Pamela continued on her journey, she eventually found herself standing at the very heart of the Fourth Tower. This particular Tower was dedicated to the practice of meditation, specifically the meditation of Recollection and its subsequent outcome: the Contemplation of Quietude. This was a highly significant practice, one that was said to bring about a multitude of effects. read more

The Passage to Spiritual-Sovereignty

  1. In self-realisation itself there are no time [-limits]; it goes beyond all the realms belonging to the various stages; transcending the measure of thought, it establishes itself as the result [of discipline in the realm] of no-appearance.

Self-realization: another dominant term that lies at the very heart of the Lanka—indeed, as Suzuki writes, its principle-thesis. This is also the principle reason why Bodhidharma handed over his copy of the Lanka to Huike, signifying the all-importance of awakening that inner-perception, the process wherein Mind awakens to the truth of ITs inner recesses and thus comes to the realization that all that is seen is seen of the Mind Itself. Suzuki develops this further within the context of the Lanka itself: read more

Technique #8: Dharmasota Ho

Question: Shoden Session # 8 opens with a distinction between one’s “personal will” and the Unborn Will; curious as to why there needs to be any such distinction since we are already united with the Unborn Will as such… read more

Technique #3: Chakra Stimulation

Question: You just referred to the Sugata-garbha; you also mention in Dhyana Technique #3, or the Chakra Stimulation Technique, that the Sugata-garbha Chakra is the “seat of knowledge from which the subtle energy flow of Unborn Light Reiki empowers one to remain balanced and focused in the Recollective Resolve…and that its quality is one of Primordial, maternal joy.” Are you saying then, in reference to the conclusion of the Binzuru-Ho Technique that one is actually merging with this Chakra in order to effectively stifle the agitation of the skandhas, much like a mother would quieten a troubled child? read more

Divine Revelation in Pali Buddhism

Dr. Peter Masefield’s groundbreaking study, Divine Revelation in Pali Buddhism, has become a standard-bearer for those who approach the early narratives of Buddhism, not exclusively through the torch of Historical-Critical-Analysis, but through a direct and synthesized correlation of what transpires in those sacred chronicles via a series of recurring themes and general non-sectarian mystical vantage points. Masefield contends that his study is a revaluation and a re-mythologization of what mainstream academia shuns and holds as anathema to their rigid methodologies. One reviewer writes: read more

The Deathless

Not knowing the Way of Deathlessness,
What use is there to quieten the mind.

The Bodhisattva develops the fine-art of Smṛti and thus turns-about from the Moving Principle by Recollecting the Animating Impetus that is at the Very Heart of Suchness. The Bodhi-minded one does not move an inch in samsara. He now employs only the Mantle of Deathlessness. If Smṛti should ever be lost, one loses the Deathless Principle, but whoever rightfully employs it will continue to have the Deathless as one’s constant companion. Trying to engage in any form of meditation technique without first employing Smṛti will never quieten the anxious mind that is still held spellbound by the bewitching influences of the raging vijñānas. By faithfully attuning oneself to it one will never be distracted again by the demon monkey-psyche. Once kissed by the Deathless Sound (Parato ghosa), there is no turning back for the Bodhisattva. She’s now come face to face with deathlessness and is perfumed with IT’s markless-mark. There is no longer any need to employ lesser vehicles to quieten the mind, for her own Bodhi-gnosis is now complete and unexcelled. Pure, unadulterated, Imageless Tathata; indeed, to paraphrase a familiar spiritual adage, “And I live, now not I, but the Deathless Unborn Spirit liveth in me.” read more
