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 ….

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.
