at the river Drava
/ ♥\_NAMO AMITABHA
Its hot summer in August 2019 ; in Tibetan and Chinese lunar calendar its Earth Pig year . Its no wonder that in Earth years we are interested in Earth element: how to balance it, how to make it stable. Its South part of the mandala: the reign of Ratnasambhava Buddha. Ratna means Jewel. All earth element with precious and semi-precious stones, gems, rock crystals belong to Ratnasambhava Buddha of golden light.
The river is flowing peacefully and diligently …Who knows which secrets are hidden in it ?!
Just one day after Chokor Duchen Dharmachakra day – when Lord Buddha taught the Four noble Truths at Sarnath (August 4) I am on my way to my special places at the river . Sitting in the cooling river I recite Hundred-syllable mantra of Buddha Vajrasattva eleven times , visualising all waters on the planet Earth to be blessed with Vajrasattva Buddha .
Later I also practice Long-life sadhana of Buddha Amitayus . called Union of Primordial Essences . This is hidden treasure /terma of my Guru Nyala Pema Dudul who accomplished Rainbow body in East Tibet (1872) .
U.P.E. sadhana is included among the collective practices of Dzogchen community . After dedication of merit I remember that its almost one year that
Chogyal Namkhai Norbu ascended to Amitabha Buddha pure land and almost two years that
vajra brother Mangala Konchok Borbu ascended to Sukhavati pure land of Buddha Amitabha .
I am going slowly down the river , because the stones in the river are very slippery. At the river bank where the water is more peaceful and slowly flowing I stand and observe the stones of black and green colors …and I pick up special stone ..began observing it from all sides .It looks like yin*yang stone , isn*t it ? I contemplate the symbolism of this special stone all evening at home . I began searching on internet about ancient yin*yang stones . This leads me to Celtic symbolism . And here it is :
Now compare : this special stone is an ancient Celtic archeology dating back ca 2100 years ! Its master piece of Art . One can hold it in the right hand and it fits perfectly into the palm . Its like stone of wisdom : with twop fishes : yin*yang . Probably it belonged to a Celtic priest .
Isn*t it strange or remarkable that Celts had the same symbol of tow fishes or yin*yang , the same symbol is found among Eight auspicious signs (Skt . Asta mangala) of Buddhism : Two gold fishes . They represent liberation from samsara . I have two gold fishes swimming peacefully in the vessel at home . They are called Tashi & Padma .
May all be liberated from samsara and safely always dwell in Sukhavati pure land of Buddha Amitabha : Infinite Light & Life . Homage to Buddha Amitabha .

From this photo of balanced Torus with a Disc we can understand the Anutarayoga instruction about visualization of sacred seed syllable on the Sun disc …
