Dharma-mind of the Absolute

Chapter Eight: The Dharma-body of the Tathagatas (JK) At that time the great Bodhisattva Mañjuśri questioned the Buddha and said: "World-honored One, you have taught about the Dharma body of a Tathagata. How is this Dharma body to be characterized?" Mañjuśri: Mañjuśrī best captures the epitome of Wisdom. Mañjuśrī is undoubtedly synonymous with and the very embodiment of the Perfection of Wisdom (Prajñāpāramitā) Dharma body of a Tathagata: in this context, the Truth or Reality Read more [...]

The Nescience Entrenchment

(Death of Nescience:medusainfurs) “World-Honored One, to say that the Arhats and Pratyekabuddhas now they are no more subject to future existence does not mean that they have eradicated all defilements or that they know all their rebirth. Why? The Arhats and Pratyekabuddhas still have some residual defilements not yet eradicated; therefore, they cannot know all their rebirths.  "There are two kinds of defilements: underlying defilements and active defilements." The underlying defilements Read more [...]

The Pure Zen of the Tathagatas

A layman asked: "Though Zen is said to be transmitted outside the scriptures and not through words, there are many more incidents of monks questioning teachers and inquiring of the Way than in the teaching sects. How can Zen be said to be outside the scriptures? And can reading the records of the old masters and seeing how they dealt with koans ever be considered outside the realm of words? What is the true meaning of the statement, 'Outside the scriptures, not through words'?"  The master Read more [...]

Position-less

When the Terrible-Twos are no more, Where’s the Demon Head of the One to be found? In the Unborn Mind, There is no need for standardization in any form. Equanimity is the point of arriving where you have never left. The harried-heads of the demons are forever gone. Mind-vacillation stops Its vicarious twists and turns. Right-faith is sharing-in the very vivifying-Mind of the Tathagatas. When the Two are slain the Head of the One likewise rests on the silver plate of Victory. Read more [...]

The Assumption of the Yogikaya

As an earlier post revealed, once Amoghasiddhi’s Key has been turned in the meditative act of spiritual ejaculation, the bodhi-bindu rises to the Dharmachakra and is experienced as Vairocana’s enrapturement. The yogin is now enjoined with Vairocana as the wind and mind are sown as one; thus the speech of the Tathagatas is conferred. The Tathagata speaks powerfully within the Yogic-Host; the Mind of the Tathagatas is now activated and regulates the daily rhythm of the yogin’s breath. When 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 [...]

Ascending the Bhūmis

SEVEN: ASCENDING THE BHŪMIS As the garbha-child lay contemplating the awe and beauty of Arya Tārā’s Noble Dharma-Realm, Blessed Vajradhara appeared and produced a Ten-Prong Vajra—one with his face materializing at its hub… The bodhichild began to reach out towards this shining ideation as Vajradhara’s face smiled approvingly; as he did so the Vajra began to vibrate at an incalculable speed as it displayed a wide-array of colors… As if on cue, Mahasiddha Acintapa Read more [...]

The Generation of the Bodhibindu

SIX: THE GENERATION OF THE BODHIBINDU Beloved and Immaculate Arya Tārā is the Sacred Vessel through which the Buddha-potential originates and is nurtured. She is ARYA—the Noble Liberator—and her Blessed Bodhi-Womb—GARBHA—houses the Self-Liberating activity. Like a mother she knows her children’s potential as Buddha-nature, and her activity as the Holy Matrix houses the Primordial Wisdom (Prajñā) that removes the veil of ignorance from all future children destined for Tathagatahood.
