3.1.Relax in natural state – beyond egocentric ways, part 2

Homage to primordial Buddha Samantabhadra*Samantabhadri :

With their great compassion may  he/she leads us on the Path of natural liberation.

Those who are not aware of sublime Knowledge within remain in attachment to oneself and enmity toward others , as Kunzang Gongpa Zangthal teaches. One can not teach spiritual Path , Buddhist path and Atiyoga Dzogpa chenpo Path with egocentric ways. Ancient Dzogchen master Shri Singha explained clarity dream of great Tibetan translator Vairocana : “But there will come a time in the future when various practitioners with broken vows have their hearts seduced by the gongpo demon . They will distort the sacred Great perfection. Disparaging true teachings while exaggerating falsehood, they will bring many people to ruin.

Your Tibetan people are also gullible and therefore indecisive, so there will come a time when these teachings of the Great perfection are no more than the “scent lingering in an empty box. Padmasambhava of Uddiyana and the learned Vimalamitra are both holders of my lineage, as well as accomplished in the meaning of Great perfection.” (8)

Only by following teachings of authentic Atiyoga * Dzogchen master who has blessings of Atiyoga * Dzogchen leneage, who is keeping pure samaya*commitment and who can show the Path of natural liberation of Atiyoga * Dzogchen by introducing you directly to innate Sound*Light of Dharmata beyond egocentric ways, one can proceed on the Path toward complete Enlightenment. Nowdays Dzogchen teachings became fashionable, because many spiritual practitioners like ideas of self-centered ambitions. Many egotistic people are teaching spirituality nowdays… Following such egotistic teaching only reinforces the ego and conceptual ignorance. True blessings always come from Dharmakaya Buddha Samantabhadra*Samantabhadri, being unseparable from Vajrasattva*Buddha Locana, Garab Dorje, Shri Singha, Vimalamitra, Padmasambhava . Blessings of Buddha Vajrasattva purify and open meditators consciousness  to receive Wisdom blessings of Body, Speech, Awareness, Enlightened qualities and enlightened activities of Samantabhadra-Vajrasattva_Garab Dorje lineage. 100-syllable matra of Vajrasattva teaches : OM VAJRASATTVA SAMAYA…..MAHASAMAYA SATTVA A. … returning to primordial purity, symbolised by the sacred  letter A. Purified skandha of consciousness – without egocentric ways- is Buddha Vajrasattva. Relax in that Knowledge of primordial purity, hearable as natural Sound*Light of Dharmata.

Don´t visualise anything…just see your body as rock crystal – Vajrasattva, Vajra Being. Crystal clear. Awareness of Vajrasattva, crystal clear. Stable like the mountain. (9) Vajrasattva Buddha purifies all samaya*commitments, beginning with the vows of individual liberations (pratimoksha vovs), Bodhicitta vows and refuge vows, Bodhisattva vows, 14 root tantric vows and secondary tantric vows and the four great samayas of Atiyoga * Dzogpa chenpo. One can not uphold Dzogchen samayas  without keeping pratimoksha vows, beginning with five ethical precepts of Buddhism (pancasila).

All-accomplished Master Shri Singha already warned future generations, including now living generations, that sacred teachings of Great perfection will be perverted by those with broken samayas. It is our responsibility to keep the sacred Atiyoga*Dzogpa chenpo lineage A-live. It is A-live only with pure commitments (as explained above). Pure commitments is like crystal Vase to receive supreme blessings of Samantabhadra*Samantabhadri-Vajrasattva*Buddha Locana- Garab Dorje and all lineage masters in unimpeded continuity. Tsog offering verse (10) teaches :  “May we be enlightened in the primordialy pure youthful vase Body.”

May these words of Heart advise and essential meaning awaken present and future generation. May everyone  relax in primordialy  pure natural state beyond egocentric ways…

Notes :

1. Samantabhadra yab yum simbolises Dharmakaya.

2. Vajrasattva yab yum simbolises Sambhogakaya.

3.Shakyamuni Buddha foretold supreme emanation Prahevaja – Garab Dorje in the Nirvana sutra.

4.Shri Singha was one of Atiyoga ancient masters who transmitted Eighteen Dzogchen Upadesha tantras to Guru Padmasambhava. All ancient Atiyoga masters accomplished Rainbow body of great transference (Phowa chenpo).

5. Yeshe Khandroma Tshogyal was Wisdom consort of Guru Rinpoche (Padmasambhava). For Her life and liberation (Namtar) see selected bibliography.

6.Wisdom deities (Dewa, Yidam); Dharma protectors (Dharmapala, Chökyong) from together with the Lama/Guru Three Roots of Vajrayana Buddhism.

7.Sensei Morihei Ueshiba – The Art of peace

8.Wellspring of great perfection , pg 242. Gongpo demon personifies the insidious evil spirit of egotism and self-centered ambition. Egocentric ways are selfish ways carrying only for self and personal interest. Egocentric means : self-centered, proceeding from self as the center, as one´s knowledge of the nature of outside world. Egotism can lead to egomania = abnormal or excessive egotism, as opposed to altruism / unselfishness. Gullible means : capable of being easily gulled, duped or deceived. One Lama said many years ago at an open seminar : “It is so easy for us lamas to cheat you people !”… German translator translated this as : “Es ist sehr leicht sie zu unterrichten… It is easy to teach you.”  He was corrected by the surprised listeners.

Neuroscientists can proove that human brain absorb every information through listening and visual impressions. Marketing strategists apply this pre-conditioning of human mind in very effective ways – one need only to listen and see commercials long enough to begin to believe . Therefore it is extremely important for all on the spiritual Path not to follow egotistic paths which only reinforce ego and selfishness.

9. Contemplation , stable like the mountain is one of four contemplations of Atiyoga*Dzogpa chenpo.

10. Tsog offering verse by Kyabje Dudjom Rinpoche II. See related Visual Dharma.

3.2.QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS :

Re: Buddhism . Dec 21, 2009

How to handle anger? I am a jovial, cheerful person. But once I get offended, I become angry easily. And I will hit back with very hash words. I don’t like to be like that.

Answer :

Many people are struggling with anger problems. Your observations are sincere and truthful. We could answer your question and give some spiritual advice in one of next Alive Dharma teaching, sent to all Friends  on youtube . In such way many more people can benefit from spiritual advice on how to handle anger.

First of all one should not involve oneself with “anger junkies “ – with Toxic anger sindrom. Anger can be explosive (showing outside) or implosive (hidden). Such frustrated people always seek somebody to insult and  to quarrel with . TAS is sickness and must be cured by detoxifying the liver (liver chi /energy). Poisoning of liver comes from alcohol, drugs, junk food or just dwelling in environment with angry / poisonous energy . All mental states are addictive and can be easily transmitted on collective level. In Buddhism we call this  states collective karma.

There is humorious , but very educational movie : Anger management, showing Toxic anger syndrom from funny side. Look this movie.

At the same time try to increase your positive energy which is your protection against anger. There are righteous “anger” and toxic anger . Righteous “anger” is Mirror-like wisdom. Wish-granting prayer of Samantabhadra teaches more how to liberate the energy of anger into Mirror-like wisdom. Wholesome medicine with vegetarian diet and our formulas with medicinal herbs for detoxifying the energy in your body can also help you a lot. Just to beginn with : regular chanting of Namo Amitabha in a concentrated manner as on this Visual Dharma (video) reduces anger . OM MANI PADME HUM

3.3. Buddha Dharma friend  Nutier (France) sent many questions which will be answered on Jan 3. 2010. May peace and happiness be with all of us .

IV. WISDOM WITHOUT BORDERS

4.1. Question and answer on We Women :

December 27, 2009, Her Eminence Tara Tulku Rinpoche said…

Dear Linda, here is answer to your question if Buddhism is a religion ? It is spiritual path toward Enlightenment and religion based on faith in the Buddhas manifold teaching. All my other Alive teaching-some of them published also at We Women blog, describes why it is so. Wishing you peace, health, wisdom and joy in 2010 ***** Tara Tulku Rinpoche

On the Path of Atiyoga*Dzogpachenpo :

Natural liberation

This alive Knowledge comes from the blessings of Atiyoga*Dzogpa chenpo essence lineage of Nyingma Vajrayana Buddhism, vividly present in the Sound*Light of Dharmata in unimpeded continuity. … Relax in natural state – beyond egocentric ways. Breath deeply and relax completely… Relax your body and feel blissful energy of primordial state. Relax your thoughts in inner silence. Spaciousness expand. Beyond egocentric ways. Without fear – don´t remain in dualism of I and you. Expand your heart…Don´t be afraid of non-dual awareness. Abide in this non-dual liberation with simplicity of a child… or those who truly love for the first time…Appreciate and respect natural liberation, simplicity. Remember zen saying : “Those who drink water know exactly if it´s cold or warm.”

In blissful Oneness leave concepts about self-liberation behind. As Sensei Morihei Ueshiba said : Learn and forget ! (7) By leaving all wrong concepts about self-liberation behind, be A-live : Vajra Body is wisdom Body of the deity; Vajra speech is wisdom energy of the Deity; Vajra awareness is wisdom display of the Deity. Sublime mandala of primordial Buddha Samantabhadra*Samantabhadri.

Since it is uncompouded ,

It is primordialy pure.

Since its natural bliss is unimpeded,

It is spontaneous presence.

Rest in that Oneness.

That alone is primordial Buddha

Samantabhadra*Samantabhadri :

Innate natural Sound*Light of Dharmata,

Essence of all knowledge-holders.

3.2. QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS :

Maorawrath USA

Do buddhist have any tools to fight againts demonic posetion? Can meditation prevent or expel demons? Can a person increase their chakras through  meditation and how?

Prayers and meditations are the best tool  or antidote against demonic posessions. Prayers and meditations surely prevent and expel demons. Prayers and meditations published on our channel create positive, en- light-ened energy as protection . First step on spiritual path is to avoid eating meat and become life-long vegetarian, to avoid alcohol,drugs and tobacco. As Kyabje Dudjom Rinpoche II. taught while compiling teachings from hidden treasures – many demons are “embeded” in drugs and tobacco. Even if one is non-smoker, it is good to avoid places where people smoke. In this view it is completely irresponsible that the  state of California legalised the use of marihuana for so called “medicinal purposes”, with 400.000 people having cards which allow them to buy marihuana in shops! This is truly not responsible health care… Then purify your energy with the help of Buddhist wholesome medicine (vegetarian diet, herbal formulas, Buddhist Chi Kung workout etc). This helps you to advance on spiritual path . Prayers and meditations which we teach open up the chakras in a safe way. Try to practice daily some of our Visual Dharmas- spiritual teachings for new millenium : Verses of prayer to Eight Auspicious ones, Vajrasattva 100-syllable mantra for purification and others. These meditations and prayers are like wholesome medicine which should be practiced with devotion , diligence and joy. Wishing you successful spiritual practice ….

nutier France

Dear venerable Sir , please enjoy my question , thank you .
Tusita heaven , the world of contented devas . A realm of pure delight and gaiety . Bodhisattas abide here prior to their final human birth .
Q.122 – What is the meaning of Tusita heaven ?
Tusita heaven (Tibetan: Ga-den)  is heaven of satisfaction. It is the fourth of six heavens in the realm of desire (Sanskrit: Kammadhatu). Bodhisattvas are reborn in Tusita heaven before their last rebirth in human realm when they attain perfect and complete Buddhahood. Tusita heaven consist of inner and outer court. Inner court is abode of Bodhisattva Maitreya . From Tusita heaven each buddha descends to earth. It is present place of next buddha, Maitreya.  Our fortunate aeon (Sanskrit : Bhadra kalpa) will have 1002 Buddhas.

Q.123 – Is Bodhisattva a former Buddha’s name in Tusita heaven before becoming Siddharta as a human being ?

Bodhisattva means son or daughter of the Buddha. Every Bodhisattva has already awakened Bodhi mind or Bodhicitta . Jataka tales teach about Lord Buddha Shakyamuni´s former lives when He was a Bodhisattva.

Q.124 – As Tusita heaven is the realm of pure delight and gaiety , why should  they not go directly into Nirvana after the death ?

Going into Nirvana is Theravada Buddhist teaching.Nirvana is not some special place to go, but rather state of Enlightenment. As today´s Visual Dharma: Wish-granting prayer of Samantabhadra- teaches : “Appearance and existence, samsara and nirvana have all one base. But two paths lead to two results. In Mahayana we teach about emanations or Nirmanakaya .” Read the teaching in description of Wish-granting Prayer of Samantabhadra.
Q.125 – In this meaning , is human realm the best for those who want to achieve Nirvana? May peace and happiness be upon you always ! nutier

Human realm is somehow in between : it is wrong to suppose that there are no Dharmas in upper realms of samsara. Every realm has its “own” buddha. Atiyoga*Dzogchen teachings with 64.millions of tantras are taught also in heavenly realm, as explained in the Penetration of Sound tantra (Tibetan: Dra Thal Gyur). Each and very buddha of this fortunate aeon (Sanskrit: Bhadra kalpa) has listened to this special Dharma.

After rebirth in human realm one must have freedoms and endowments to practice pure Buddha Dharma and to “attain” Nirvana – to accomplish one´s Buddha potentials within. Without freedoms and endowments one can not practice the Dharma and one´s Buddha potentials remain dormant, undiscovered . As Kyabje Thinley Norbu Rinpoche advised : Changing bad habbits into good habbits : this means to practice the Dharma. Meat eating is bad habbit and everyone who wish to “attain” Nirvana must change this bad habbit into saving lives of animas and become vegetarians.

Swiss Ban Minarets: Is This About Women’s Rights or Wronging Religion?

Published December 02, 2009 @ 05:06PM PT

Reply : OM  MANI PADME HUM, dear Friends  at Change.org Religions must adapt themselves to new environments where they wish to progress and benefit beings ! Muslim community in Slovenia – European union- does not have demands that big minaret is incorporated in their new Muslim community center which they  wish to build in the capital city. We saw exact architect plan of it on the international conference, organised by Iscomet – International scientific conference – Minorities for Europe of Tommorow, financed by European commission and held in the city of Maribor, Oct 2006. This shows us clearly : in some countries Muslim community has adapted to new environments and in some countries Muslim community can not adapt themselves – or don´t want to adapt themselves- to new environment. Mostly this depend on the religious leader who is  responsible for the religuous community. Some are more progressive as others !  We certainly don´t want to see religious communities living in geto like environments, discriminating women, forcing them in marriages or even killing them if the don´t obey ! Such cases are well documented in Germany and described  in books.  To come out of the traditional Muslim  religious laws (Sharia) is certainly difficult for conservative Muslims;  conservative Christians , conservative Hindus or conservative Buddhists have the same problems with their so called patriarchal religious  laws .  To say European institutions don´t promote religious diversity, is basically wrong . Religious diversity is well promoted in legislatures of different countries .In Slovenia we have advanced law about Religious freedom, accepted by the parlament – with great difficulties and with years of previous discussions. This religuious freedom must only be put into practice.  In practical life we observe that Europeans  are not well educated about different religions, not educated from unbiased point of view, because school education don´t offer enough programmes with education about different religions. There is also not enough interest to improve general ignorance about this subject in school curricullums. Because of general ignorance about different religions- mass media report in provocative and unbiased ways, to attract readers. This is also question of journalist ethic !

I hope that this portrait give realistic and optimistic insights how world religions (Christianity, Judaism, Hinduism, Buddhism and others) must adapt themselves to new situations of 3rd millenium. Adaptation does not mean indoctrination or integration with loosing the essence of religions, which is WISDOM and COMPASSION, based on deep Faith, either in the God, Buddha … Religious extremists don´t have Wisdom and Compassion, they have violence and aggression in their minds and actions, hate speech toward others because of religuous intolerance, racism and fear .

Council of Europe (Strassbourg)  created international convention against internet crime already in 2001 !This convention is prohibiting hate speech based on racism or religious intolerance, when it is pointed at concrete persons . Respectful and compassionate dialogue is wellcome.  With this in mind there can be a lot of creative, compassionate exchange of ideas : HOW TO DEVELOP  RELIGIONS OF THIS WORLD TO BENEFIT BEINGS, to make them peaceful, wise and compassionate toward themselves and toward others.

4.1. Translating the Words of the Buddha

Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche Gives Urgent Call To Translate Entire Buddhist Canon To English

Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche at the conference for Buddhist translator in Bir , India: March 2009

Rinpoché said that, among the Buddhist culture, the Kangyur is widely used as a “merit-making object”: monasteries will buy a copy only for it to be stacked in the shelves. “If offerings are made, the text will be read out loud, but little effort will be invested in understanding the meaning of each word.”

“While paying homage to the Word of the Buddha is a powerfully meritorious spiritual act, the Tibetan habit of using the Kangyur solely for this purpose is neither to be admired nor emulated: in fact, it’s a big mistake.”

Rinpoché added: “Every religion has an original holy book – for Christians, it’s the Bible, and for Moslems it’s the Koran. For Buddhists, our root holy books are the Sutras and they are of vital importance, because what Buddha taught us must always be the final word on any given subject, not what we find in the Shastras (ancient Hindu commentaries on Buddhism) – and definitely not what’s to be found in the Tibetan commentaries.”

Rinpoche said that Buddhist cultures today preserved and propagated the work of their own lamas, and have forgotten the Buddha’s Sutras. Such cultures often promoted the teachings of their own teachers far more than those of the Buddha, he said, – “and I have no trouble understanding why Tibetan Buddhism is sometimes described as “Lamaism”.

OM MANI PADME HUM
Very wise and objective article indeed. We appreciate it´s unbiased approach, well known from the teachings of Dzogsar Khyentse Rinpoche whom we met in March 1994 . We are esp. looking for the authentic translations of Eighteen Atiyoga Dzogchen tantras into English, beginning with the Penetration of Sound root tantra. . These precious Tantras are true Heritage of mankind and must be traslated into English soon. The problem is that there are very few translators with true contemplative experiences who could translate them in authentic, non-intellectual way. Tibetan lamas also consider them so secret, that almost nobody of us (so called Westerners) has enough merit to understand them. When everyone will understand that in the Buddha All-encompassing wisdom there are no Easterners or Westerners, there will be much more compassion and right effort to benefit beings by translating the Words of the Buddha .As Guru Rinpoche prophecised : There will be perverted practitioners who will treat the dharma as merchandise. At that time all of you who obey my Words do not neglect ten Dharmic activities…” (From Guru Padmasambhava´s Jewel spike Testament). Copying Buddhist scriptures (and it´s translations) for free distribution – not selling them – is first Dharmic/enlightened activity which must be practiced and encouraged.
In this sense we all wish swift fulfillment of this important project :
TRANSLATING THE WORDS OF THE BUDDHA*****
Together we recite the Verses to the Eight Auspicious ones (by Mipham Rinpoche) for the accomplishment of these noble aims who will certainly benefit many beings.
May dharmic activities of Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche meet with great success*****

Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche wrote :

“As followers of Shakyamuni Buddha, I think the best thing that we can do is what we in Tibetan call dzin-kyong, to protect, uphold, and keep the teaching alive. That’s our job. And not only one or two teachings of the Buddha, but every one of them, every single one.”

Source: Khyentse Foundation: December 2009 Communiqué

Note: We rejoice that also other Buddhist masters and practicing Buddhists think about protecting, upholding and keeping the teachings alive. The best way to do this is to serve the teachings of Budddhas by promoting/practicing ten enlightened activities as advised by Buddha Padmasambhava. May this noble examples inspire every practicing Buddhist to accumulate merit and wisdom by practicing ten dharmic activities, not selling the dharma !

4.2. Questions & answers :

nutier France

Dear venerable Sir , please enjoy my question , thank you .
Yama heaven , yama devas live in the air , free of all difficulties .
Q.119 – What is the meaning of yama devas ?
Yama heaven is one of heavens in the desire realm (Sanskrit: Kamadhatu) , the heaven of constant joy, located above the heaven of 33. …The life span of beings in this realm (yama devas) is 2000 years, each day of which corresponds to 200 years in human world.

Q.120 – Is yama raja ( king of yama ) the same as yama devas ?
Yama raja (yama king) – lord of Yama heaven – is regarded as the judge of the dead and the ruler of hells.

Q.121 – If they are free of all difficulties , are they also free of all bad deeds ?
May peace and happiness be upon you always ! nutier

Heavenly beings are not free of all difficulties. When they die, they experience  immense suffering which they can not change. When their merit is exhausted ,  they are reborn in lower realms of samsara. These beings still transmigrate, although their life-span is very long – from human perspective.

Note: Three questions about  Tushita heaven will be answered next time.

4.1. Questions & answers

rsilvia1999 USA (18 years)

hi   : i have a ? what is the position of women in this religion and is buddha like a god or a teacher?

Dear Silvia , your question is very intelligent 🙂 *****

We write a lot about position of women in Buddhism. There is Visual Dharma (video: Women in Buddhism), with extensive research published in description of this video. To say shortly: as in all major religions women still don´t have equal opportunities as men. We promote Gender equality & empowerment of women which is  also one of the Millenium goals of United nations. This goal of Gender  equality must be achieved until 2015.

Is Buddha like a god or a teacher ? Buddha is enlightened Guide toward enlightenment, He is spiritual Friend, not a god. Buddha Shakyamuni is teacher of men and gods. There is Visual Dharma (video) : About Buddhism. There you will find more extensive answer. Wish you all the ebst in your life , dear Friend  of Buddha Dharma.

Post scriptum : three questions by Nutier will be answered next time. OM
