Dear venerable Sir , thank you a lot for your lovely response on my question , I’m appreciated it so much . I know now that the ” mind ” is not permanent , and also all of things flowing in the universe according to the Buddha’s teaching .This is a great enlightenment of Dhamma . This is my new question ,please enjoy it , thank you .
Yes, each person has his own Samsara . The person that always wants to meet only good friends, good times to work or travel , but there is something that prevents their wish , or completely changes their destination .
Q.93 – Does this prevention come from Samsara ?
Answer from Shifu John Chow :” All existence is Samsara, according to Lord Buddha. That is due to the deluded mind. Obtaining whatever we want is no other than our craving, desire and expectations. That is already our dualistic craving mind. Such projections are samsara. If you say all such unfulfilled desires come from Samsara, then you will have to search further – where does samsara come from. The answer again is the deluded mind – due to ‘avijja’ fundamental ignorance or non-realisation of our true nature. Samsara does not prevent things from happening so samsara is not the cause. Samsara is more the condition or state. The real cause is avijja. Whether prevention or fulfilment, these are mere projections of the cravings of our deluded minds. Exist only within context or realm of samsara.
So, we do not say that preventions or fulfilments come from, or arise from, or are caused by samsara, but it may be more accurate to say that preventions and fulfilments are the play in samsara of our deluded mind, experienced by our deluded mind. It is like a great puppet master who is so skilful that he can enthral the audience with his puppet work, but he himself also got caught in his own play. Although samsara is false, illusory magical creation of the master magician’s projection, it is so real that the ‘creator’ gets caught up in the play, movements, dynamics and laws of his own creation and can not distinguish that he is living, seeing, feeling, touching, hearing, living and dying and suffering within his self-created world of illusion! Even though, in the beginning, to start off with, the great magician knows he is going to create an apparition, and that it is only an apparition, when he is so fully engrossed in the movements and play of the apparition, he lost his central sense of pilot, and becomes like all his objects of creation. Not remembering more and more of the fact that these are only apparitions and their play that he created by his projections, eventually totally not remembering and realising this at all. This is the fundamental ignorance. In Tibetan, this is ‘ma rigpa’.
I hope this answers your question. I am also learning some Dharma now so I just share what my idea is. I am not sure whether I answered correctly. You can do whatever you like with them.
Blessings to you and family.”
Dear venerable Sir , thank you so much for your response to my question , I’m so happy to learn Buddha dharma from you . This is my question , please enjoy it , thank you .
Q.94 – If samsāra is the unbroken chain of the five-fold khandha-combinations, which, constantly changing from moment to moment follow continuously one upon the other through inconceivable periods of time , as buddhistheritage wrote here , do bad and good omens, bad and good preventions, bad and good dreams , bad and good chances etc. come from Samsara too ?
May peace and happiness be upon you always !
Answer from Shifu John Chow :“The answer to the the previous question also applies here. Good and bad do not come from, or arise from, or are caused by samsara. Samsara is more the condition of unsatisfactoriness caused by the play of all alternations or changes from states of good to bad etc. Changes are all energy play flux. Changes are not good or bad about changes. But it is our mind’s projections of desire, craving, wanting, satisfying due to conceptual ideas of what good is about, what bad is about, ceaselessly judging whether good or bad, projecting our delusions, that creates samsara. In reality, there is no samsara. However, in the relative, because of our projections, we are born into such a type of existence that befits our karmic vision. We experience what we have projected. All existence – samsara and nirvana – are just a play and flux of our ceaseless projections. Our getting caught up in their ‘reality’ is continued compulsive transmigartion in existence. In relative language – we take rebirth after rebirth. The master magician, being caught up by his own self-created apparitions, really believes in their true existence, and hankers after their play – seeking pleasure in watching, experiencing, touching, playing with them, getting joy and pleasure from them, and after getting some little joy and pleasure, wanting to get more (that means believe in their existence, and craving for more), wanting to experience more (craving, desire, greed, tanha), and if can not get or lose the experience, is in dissatisfaction and misery (suffering of not getting what one desires – preventions), ……. etc. You see how all this relates to the whole of the Buddha’s teachings right from basic Hinayana to Vajrayana. So, samsara does not cause preventions. Prevention is part of the flux in samsara. I hope that answers your question. I am afraid I don’t know Dharma very well so I simply try to say a few words to act clever! Blessings to you and family.”
