Re: Question about Meditation

It is explained in this way: "While there isn't even as much as an atom to cultivate by meditating, you shouldn't be distracted for even as long as an instant." Phrased in another way, undistracted ordinary mind means to keep the way your mind naturally is without being distracted. Dakpo Tashi Namg...

Working with anger

The treasure revelations of Ratna Lingpa contain this quotation: "The essence of your angry mind is clear awareness; bright and empty the moment you recognize it." Thrangu Rinpoche, Crystal Clear, p.67. I find working with anger to be very difficult. Does anyone have any tips or tricks for working ...

The Mahayana attitude is exactly that: an attitude - one that is rather open and vast. Who really cares about human historical specificity when you have the vastness of the Mahayana cosmology? And for that matter, countless Buddhas.....

Inexpressibility and Precious Word Empowerment

In terms of its meaning, as it cannot be pointed out by words, it is inexpressible; as it cannot be known with ordinary modes of consciousness, it is inconceivable; and as it is does not fall into any extreme, it is the great freedom from elaboration. In the end, it is beyond all expressions, such ...

Synthesis and expansion

The modernistic searcher after meaning may be likened to a man furiously beating the earth and imagining that the finer he pulverizes it, the nearer he will get to the riddle of existence. But no synthesizing truths lie in that direction. It is in the opposite direction that the path must be follow...

It is supposed to be simple and easy

No matter what the mind might be thinking, it is enough simply to relax directly in whatever arises, without trying to alter or adjust anything, and then to sustain that experience without becoming distracted. This makes everything very simple and easy. To feel that practising the Dharma is difficu...

Absolutely. It's almost the fundamental problem and is especially bad in the West.
Fortunately Mahayana Buddhism is simple.

Is no-one allowed to start a good old-fashioned political scrum around here any more even in the Lounge? What happened?

Re: Brahman and Atman in Kagyu?

There is a mere similarity in terms. ... there is not the slightest similarity.

You know I hate to say it but a "mere" similarity is a similarity.

Re: Buddha Nature in Zen

Do you ask if there is a special "Zen theory" of buddha-nature? Yes. If so, then the answer is no ... teachings that are conventionally labelled Zen simply rely on established Mahayana doctrine. ... a common and quite central concept in most Zen teachings is that the "mind is buddha", that is, that...

Buddha Nature in Zen

I know that in East Asian Buddhism, Buddha Nature is emphasized. Is there any special emphasis or perspective on this idea in Zen which differentiates it?
