The mirror.

Postby muni » Sat Jun 12, 2010 7:44 am

Conditioned by the mind, one becomes strongly habituated to illusory actions. And then it's the same as far as pure Enlightenment is concerned; beyond one's own mind there is no dazzling light to come shining in from outside to wake one up. If one recognizes one's own intrinsic State as pure from the beginning and only temporarily obscured by impurities, and if one maintains the presence of this recognition without becoming distracted, then all the impurities dissolve. This is the essence of the Path. Then the inherent quality of the great original purity of the Primordial State manifests, and one recognizes it and becomes the master of it as a lived experience. This experience of the real knowledge of the authentic original condition, or the true awareness of the State, is what is called Nirvana. So Enlightenment is nothing other than one's own mind in its purified condition. For this reason Padma Sambhava said: 'the mind is the creator of Samsara and of Nirvana. Outside the mind there exists neither Samsara nor Nirvana. 'Having thus established that the basis of Samsara and Nirvana is the mind, it follows that all that seems concrete in the world, and all the seeming solidity of beings themselves, is nothing but an illusory vision of one's own mind.

Dzogchen pith instructions (after story):
http://www.pundarika.org/teachings_mind.html

simply & gently let all go by
Dzogchen masters I know say: 1)Buddhist religion essence is Dzogchen 2)Religions are positive by intent/fruit 3)Any method's OK unless: breaking Dzogchen vows, mixed as syncretic (Milanese Soup) 4)Don't join mandalas of opponents of Dalai Lama/Padmasambhava: False Deity inventors by encouraging victims 5)Don't debate Ati with others 6)Don't discuss Ati practices online 7) A master told his old disciple: no one's to discuss his teaching with some others on a former forum nor mention him. Publicity's OK, questions are asked from masters/set teachers in person/email/non-public forums~Best wishes

"The daily display of samsaric phenomena is like a motion picture; you relate to it as if it were a movie. It is seemingly real, but when you pursue it, it is not really so".

yes, everything is emptiness. thoughts, appearances, forms, ideas, truths, falsehoods. all emptiness. it is illusory. do you see things like that Muni? me too. its hard for me to access dharma wheel these days, its blocked in my local internet kiosk. anyway, hope you are all ok on this site. best wishes, Tom. :hi:
in any matters of importance. dont rely on me. i may not know what i am talking about. take what i say as mere speculation. i am not ordained. nor do i have a formal training. i do believe though that if i am wrong on any point. there are those on this site who i hope will quickly point out my mistakes.

Chögyal Namkhai Norbu
In general when we refer to Dzogchen Teachings, we say Dzogchen is for people who have more capacity or high capacity. What does high capacity mean? It does not mean someone is realized. First of all, it means that you are interested and you participate. For example someone says, “I want to know a little about Dzogchen.” When the teacher says, “Dzogchen is your real condition”, then what should that person do? Then the teacher says, “You need to discover that real condition.” If you are in your real nature, then you don’t have any problems. But if you are ignorant of your real nature and are always concentrating outside, you are living dualistically.

If you want to get something, some benefit, and you are searching outside, you do not know the source of the benefit is in you. The person searching outside cannot get in that knowledge. So the teaching of Dzogchen is something like that. In a very simple way, we should learn about this very famous thing called limitations. You see, for example, in the Western world, also in the Tibetan world, we have the words revolution and evolution. Revolution means we are changing the outside, looking outside. We have decided what is good and bad and our idea is that we need to change that bad to good. If we succeed to change bad to good, of course that is good. But it is not so easy. There are so many considerations, otherwise everybody would have the same way of seeing, but this is not the case.

Rigpa is emptiness. mind is emptiness. unconscious is emptiness. being is emptiness. non being is emptiness. neither being nor non being is emptiness. duality is emptiness, non duality is emptiness. this mind just as it is is emptiness. this real situation is emptiness. it is not always easy but when outflows have almost ceased it is much easier than it was. tears come rarely these days.

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.

"Action" is spontaneous for self/others. Mirror don't discriminate; there are not such thoughts, as free from fixation. Clear and aware wisdom never ceases and distinctly shines.

editing to add: =mirrorlike wisdom.

Nondual: inexpressible.
