THE HEAVEN OF SOLITUDE by Nyala Pema Dundul
All-knowing lords, buddhas of the past, present and future ,
Bless this practitioner with thoughts of roaming abroad ,
So that I may be free from the enemy of a homeland !
All you students connected by karma , listen well !
In towns , the way to freedom is obstructed by the five poisons,
In monastic assemblies, misuse of offerings blocks the path to liberation ,
While this mountain retreat is just like a celestial realm –
Do not leave this heaven of the rainbow body , O fortunate ones !
In towns, the way of accursed violence sprout and spread ,
In monastic assemblies , the bitter poison of intoxicants flows ,
While in mountain retreats , the wisdom born of meditation grows –
Never be without the meditative insight, O fortunate ones !
In towns , the patterns of delusion are distinct,
In monastic assemblies, the blossoming klesas are apparent,
While in mountain retreats, the flower of stainless purity are clear –
Never part from the flora of clear light , O fortunate ones !
Ordinary townsfolk commit the five boundless crimes ,
In monastic assemblies, samayas degenerate and vows are lost,
While in mountasin retreats, commitments remain as pure as crystal –
Never part from crystalline samaya , O fortunate ones !
Ordinary townsfolk eat only bad food and impure waste,
Monastic assemblies swallow the bitter pills of misused offerings,
While in mountain retreats, we savour samadhi*s bliss and emptiness –
Never neglect the nourishment of meditation, O fortunate ones !
Ordinary townsfolk delight in the company of friends and relatives ,
Monastic assemblies flatter and fawn over patrons ,
While in mountain retreats, we practice looking into our own minds –
Never let your minds waver from the practice , O fortunate ones !
Ordinary townsfolk sponsor religious rituals when the need arises ,
Monastic assemblies practice only for their own peace and happiness ,
While in mountain retreats, we follow the path of liberation for all beings –
Never part from the practice directed towards awakening ,
O fortunate ones !
Ordinary townsfolk guard their wealth and posessions ,
Monastic assemblies watch over offerings and donations ,
While in mountain retreats, we safeguard emptiness –
Never part from the practice of sunyata , O fortunate ones !
Ordinary townsfolk are deceived by the demons of the three poisons ,
Monastic assemblies are misled by the maras of seduction,
While in mountain retreats, the heruka subdues all demons entirely –
Be sure never to part from the great and glorious heruka !
That is how it is , and what is more :
With their clamorous crowds , and noisy livestock ,
The life of a nomad is like a vast sea of evil deeds .
Market towns, where savage robbers filled with greed
Gather fort he sake of produce, women and supplies ,
And in order to trade flesh and alcohol,
Could never be what Buddha intended as a *monastery*.
Most of those wearing robes in these degenerate times ,
Keep the company of women who, they claim, are relatives –
But it*s tough to remain chaste under such conditions !
Determine clearly that all this is bound together with suffering –
This is my heart advice .
This song of regarding even two yak-hair tents as an enemy ,
And seeing solitude as a celestial paradise ,
Was sung upon the slopes of the heavenly Sky-fortress )Namkha Dzong)
By the old beggar with the name of Dundul , *Demon Tamer*.
May we see the qualities of solitude as just like those of a pure realm ,
And may those in their great hermitages ,
far from the bustle of samsara ,
Attain the level of ultimate enlightenment !

Dharma greetings to All from Mountain retreat celebrating Birthday of Padmasambhava , My perfect Teacher Nyala Pema Dundul wrote inspiring advice about Mountain retreat . He accomplished Rainbow body in 1872 . OM AH HUM
Terton Nyala Pema Dundul was root guru of Ayu Khadro ,
transmitting to her all Dharmas , including Hidden treasure of Buddha Amitayus /
Union of Primordial Essences .
In one of previous Dharma teachings at the Heritage of Mankind
I wrote how Guru Amitayus transmitted Union of primordial essences sadhana (Tsedrub Gongdu) to Guru Padmasambhava at the Maratika cave in Nepal :
»Hidden treasure of Jamyang Khyentse Wangpo :
“Lord Amitayus at Maratika
And Maha Shri Heruka at Yanglesho
Bestowed upon me with the natural sound of dharmata
This sole quintessence of all the oral instructions.
If Garab Dorje, Shri Singha, the Eight Vidyadharas,
And all the supreme siddhas from whom I received the stages of the path
Were to hold a great Dharma discussion with one another,
There would be no other summary-manual than this compiling their realization.
Throughout the countries of Uddiyana, India, Tibet and elsewhere,
This is the unmistaken condensed meaning
Of all the infinite profound and extensive wheels of the Dharma
Such as guru sadhana, the Great Perfection,
Avalokiteshvara and the Eight Sadhana Teachings.
In short, there does not exist an ultimate instruction other than this.
Expressed in few words yet including all that should be expressed.
Easy to comprehend and convenient to practice,
Without depending on anything else, it perfects the paths for those of lower, medium and higher faculties.
This is the self-resounding tantra of dharmata, the indestructible essence,
From the space of luminosity in the five-colored sphere within the heart of me, Padmasambhava.
It is the path traversed by all the buddhas of the three times.
Praised by Jamyang Khyentse Wangpo as being more valuable than thirty yak loads of scriptures, the Lamrim Yeshe Nyingpo comprises together with the commentary by Jamgon Kongtrul, the important last volume in both the collections of termas and teachings renowned as Rinchen Terdzo and New Treasures.”
ATIYOGA*DZOGCHEN ♫ ♫ SECRET SOUND OF DHARMATA
It was transmitted through the Natural Sound of Dharmata (Chonyid kyi rangdra) . Guru Padmasambhava transmitted it to terton Nyala Pema Dundul and he to Ayu Khandro and other close students . Ayu Khadro transmitted it to Chogyal Namkhai Norbu . Rinpoche gave Buddha Amitayus U.P.E. teaching and transmissions at Merigar Dzogchen community in Italy , summer 1994 . I obtained transmission of U.P.E. at that time .
In 1994 there were no internet webcast and we had to travel for 900 km to attend in person .
With great devotion , researching English translations of terton Nyala Pema Dundul teachings , I was very glad to see few texts by this enlightened master at Lotsawa house .
Made a printed copy of THE HEAVEN OF SOLITUDE and took it with me to Summer montain retreat at Kope mountains , above the city of Slovenj gradec in NE part of Slovenia, European Union .
There is 4th heat wave this summer with temperatures up to 40 degrees Celsius in the lowlands . I travelled two hours with the car which was exhausting because of heat . 12 km road up to the mountain is in bad shape and need to be repaired . My first Mountain retreat here was in October 2014, so I remembered the road . But for first visitors its really difficult , because there are no road signs or other inscriptions … I was drinking a lot of distilled water that day, probably more than 4 l , so I avoided dehidration ! It was 8th lunar day, Monday July 31, 2017 , dedicated to Medicine Buddhas and Arya Tara .
Found good room at the hotel Lukov dom , with view toward the wall made of natural stones and with wood above . Fortunately I was alone in the room and good wi-fi internet connection .
I really like this wall and natural stones , but I am not on Chan retreat like patriarch Bodhiodharma who was starring at the wall outside and contemplating Buddha nature inside Next day I was already on my way to the peak Velika Kopa !
◎⊙ღ๑۩۞۩๑ღ⊙◎‿ ↗⁀❁ its not so easy to go from 1000 m to 1532 m in heat with more than 30 degrees Celsius, carrying 10 kg rucksack , but one definitely need few l of water and vegan food , if you wish to enjoy 7 hours stay at the peak 🙂 After a while I remembered Vajra breathing with OM AH HUM and it was much easiler (wee need oxyigen !) Air is very good and fresh , because of many green woods producing a lot of oxygen . In Europe we now have 4th heat wave with temperatures up to 37 degrees Celsius in the flatland , but in mountains its not so bad . At Kope mountain there was cooling wind which I enjoyed . Kope mountain has 12 energy points in accordance with eomancy of the place . Of course one must stand bare foot and still for 10 or more minutes to feel the energy of the ground . Point 12 is for all 7 chakras of our energy body , I was practicing slow Tai chi and Chi kung on that point . Most people just run through the top, making some photos and of we go 🙂 Which is actually stupid thing to do, after you walk up for 1 hour 🙂 But at least people don*t make too much noise on the mountain , because they are bussy running further or cherishing their kids 🙂
Below the peak there is nice meadow with Erika bushes and some spruce trees ,
So I found good meditation place below twelve energy point . Weather was completely clear and sunny with cooling wind . Nearby I noticed few ants hills where I was reading another hidden treasure of Nyala Pema Dundul : Confession to 100.000 Buddhas , published on the webpage of Yeshe Jamtso Rinpoche from Yarchen gar in Sichuan China . In previous incarnation Yeshe Jamtso Rinpoche was also close student of Nyala Pema Dundul .
On my second meditation at the Kope mountain peak I recited again Confession to 100.000 Buddhas near the ants hill . There were thousands of anst running at their hill . May they all be liberated through hearing .
It was also 10th lunar day, celebrating Birth of Buddha Padmasambhava .
