Dzogchen view of Four Noble Truths

Postby Yeti » Fri Jul 12, 2013 6:03 am

When a Dzogchen Yogi hears Shakyamuni Buddha turning the Wheel of the Dharma of the Four Noble Truths he hears Samathabhadra proclaiming the most profound Dzogpachenpo.


- Nyoshul Khen Rinpoche

Quote heard during a teaching by Nyoshul Khen Rinpoche in France 1987.

disclaimer - I don't pretend to understand it at all

Happy Chokhor Duchen

What do you not understand? The 4 NT is the most important teaching of the Buddha, it's a Direct Introduction, it points directly to the essence ...

Sönam
By understanding everything you perceive from the perspective of the view, you are freed from the constraints of philosophical beliefs.
By understanding that any and all mental activity is meditation, you are freed from arbitrary divisions between formal sessions and postmeditation activity.

"To reject practice by saying, 'it is conceptual!' is the path of fools. A tendency of the inexperienced and something to be avoided."
- Longchenpa

"Even though you have recognized your essence, if you do not get accustomed to it,
You will be carried away by the enemy of thoughts, like a small child in a battle field.
So long as you are not free from the limitations of accepting and rejecting,
That long will you not recognize the view of the innermost secret heart-essence."

-Longchenpa

As far as I'm concerned, its the only reason to practice at all. No matter what you practice.
I am well aware of my idiocy. I am also very aware that you too are an idiot. Therein lies our mutuality.
