GENTLE RAIN OF NECTAR BLESSINGS
I.1 MYSTIC DANCE
Self-arisen intrinsic awareness
I bow to the self-arisen intrinsic awareness,
which is the best wisdom Teacher.
Sentient beings are in illusory dance, displaying five poisons. Yet in reality display : No dance, no dancing and no dancer : only shining awareness and freedom. Listen to the non-dual Dharmata´s sound, unwaveringly always be Samantabhadra Buddha.
No angels and no witches, only crystal clear awareness shining and resonating with the Dharmata´s sound undisturbed.
Don´t remain in dualism, in doubts of conceptualisations ! Don´t torture yourself with thoughts – listen to continuous Dharmata´s self-arisen Sound, self-liberated sound, the door of Freedom.
Dissolve all concepts and thoughts in shining, empty, limitless awareness space and fly like the Garuda !
Be Vajrasattva, embracing his Consort – they show directly open Path – the Bridge of the Sound – luminous Shunyata of Samantabhadra yab-yum.
Word Transmission is truly wordless doctrine for those, who A-bide in Dharmata´s self-arisen, unimpeded Sound.
Five Wisdom Dakinis are truly one Samantabhadri. Beyond words experience and realize this sacred Truth.
This is Heart advice how to practice and remain in natural state. Written down after reading few lines from the Magic Dance of Kyabje Chimed Tsewang Rinpoche.
May it be auspicious

I.2 Visual Dharma – Buddhist teaching for 3rd millenium :
Nyingma Vajrayana Buddhism
“Visual Dharma No. 29 was created in Spring 2005. In this Visual Dharma we teach about three lineages of Transmission in Nyingma Vajrayana Buddhism. There is Dharma from Buddha Shakyamuni and short biography of Kyabje Thinley Norbu Rinpoche, the eldest son of H.H.Dudjom Rinpoche II. Buddha Shakyamuni said : „My fearless lion´s Dharma Throne does not have an owner. The one who has compassion, who has Wisdom Mind, who has benefit mind, this one is the holder of my lineage, and can sit upon my throne.” This Visual Dharma is dedicated for the authentic continuation of the Nyingma lineages, for the health and long live of Nyingma lineage Masters.”

I.3 QUESTIONS & ANSWERS from the Friends of Buddha Dharma :
Watergrass , USA, sent five questions. First two are published today, further three in next Alive Dharma teaching . Thank you for sending them . With peace and compassion.
1.”When Buddha sits under the bodhi tree, the day that he achieved enlightment reveals the first and only 5 animals that saw the enlightment activities. What was the five animals that saw it? The only human that saw it was the boy who raise the cow. Please name the only 5 animals that saw it. I will be waiting for your answer. May the loving, compassion of buddha and good attraction be with you.”
Loving compassion of Buddha Shakyamuni is with all compassionate sentient beings who refrain of eating meat of dead animals. This is the most important Teaching that Lord Buddha is still transmitting today to everyone: become compassionate sentient being, save the lives of animals by avoiding to eat their corpses. You will probably not be content with this answer, dear Friend of Buddha Dharma. But we all encourage you to become vegetarian, to pray and meditate daily according to Lord Buddha´s instructions and all answers will be gradually revealed in your wisdom awareness…
2.”The 14th Dalai Lama is the reincarnation of the 13 Lama. Now because HH has reached the enlightment stage, which broke the endless cycle of the wheel of life. So will there be a 15th Lama reincarnated when His Holiness pass away? The Buddhist view is that we humans exist in an unenlightened state when we are still in the wheel of life cycle. I’ll be waiting for your answer. Best wishes.”
There are different stages on the Path of enlightenment, on the Bodhisattva path. When one becomes the 8th level Bodhisattva, one is not reincarnated any more because of one´s karma. One can choose to be born again in this saha world of endurance in order to help sentient beings and to lead them to liberation. Those Bodhisattvas on 8th,9th,10th and further levels as described in precious Atiyoga Dzogpa chenpo sacred texts can truly help beings. Such Bodhisattvas don´t have normal reincarnations, but emanations . Some of them are emanations of Avalokiteshvara Buddha of compassion. H.H. the XIVth Dalai Lama always says that he will be born again in this world if sentient beings need him. As written in the Snow Lion newsletter recently, his next birth might also be that of a woman . He says : Woman have more compassion… According to our inspiration and teachings it would be great achievement if the XV. Dalai Lama would be contemporary female Buddhist master, promoting gender equality as one of the millenium goals of United nations. Short letter about this is published on the description of our Buddhist channel. Please, read it.
All beings have equal Buddha potential , the seed of Enlightenment. Arhats and Bodhisattvas have already developed this seed of Buddha nature in countless previous lives of devoted and diligent Dharma practice. May Buddhas and Bodhisattvas of ten directions and three times continuously bless all of us ….
II. WISDOM WITHOUT BORDERS
We encourage everyone to study and practice Visual Dharmas and to write creative comments on them or on our Buddhist channel. Best comments will be regulary published at the Wisdom Without Borders series : Heritage of Mankind. Thank you for best wishes, support and inspiration .
