Visualizations

Postby Konchog1 » Mon Mar 25, 2013 9:02 pm

I know Sadhanas are different, but when visualizing the four mandalas, the protection wheels, the celestial mansion and so forth, do we visualize it around us or in front of us?

For example, is the room I'm in the mansion? Or is the mansion in the air in front of me with a little me inside?
Equanimity is the ground. Love is the moisture. Compassion is the seed. Bodhicitta is the result.

-Paraphrase of Khensur Rinpoche Lobsang Tsephel citing the Guhyasamaja Tantra

"All memories and thoughts are the union of emptiness and knowing, the Mind.
Without attachment, self-liberating, like a snake in a knot.
Through the qualities of meditating in that way,
Mental obscurations are purified and the dharmakaya is attained."

-Ra Lotsawa, All-pervading Melodious Drumbeats
