If EVERYTHING comes from ONE thing, How can there be anything separate? ...everything in the Universe came from the same source.
This is not actually a view supported by Dzogchen, or Buddhism in general.

"Ultimately real" and illusion are the antithesis of one another.

Re: Great Transference question

Yes, the Longsal Thogal and Longsal Yangti books are restricted to students who attended those retreats in person. The Longsal Thogal was published? Rinpoche said it was in the works at the retreat and then I never heard anything after that. I don't know if it's available. Thanks, the only update I...

Re: Non-Duality in Dzogchen vs Advaita Vedanta

I don't think there is any difference. There is a monumental difference. For one, the Dzogchen tantras reject the Advaita view by name and also explicitly reject the view of non-duality that Advaita Vedanta promulgates. The view of Advaita also breaks a Dzogchen samaya. There's no room for interpre...

Re: "One Mind" in Hua Yen thought

You hold the view that there is only cognition that is conventional, i.e. cognition that goes through a sense media. I hold that there is cognition which goes through an intermediary and a cognition which does not. This is a point of disagreement. The issue is that you are conflating contexts. In t...

Re: ‘Dharmas do not arise’

From Buddhapālita, per Malcolm: Here, with respect to your claim for an ascertained cause for the production of a result, wheat, etc., and a non-productive condition and non-condition, ‘the arising of a result is not accepted’ was previously explained. 

If that result does not exist, where will ‘th...

Re: "One Mind" in Hua Yen thought

The basic problem is this: when recognition is convention, it is non-veridical. Recognition is a conventional occurrence. What are we ideally recognizing? The dharmatā of phenomena, which is their non-arising. We present that non-arising as the ultimate truth of the given dharma in question, but ev...

Re: "One Mind" in Hua Yen thought

An ontological non-duality [sanatanadharma] is where everything is reduced to a single substance that exists alone by itself. For example if subject and object were merged and we then held a view that the union of the two as a single X is truly substantial and valid. This cannot be true as it impli...

Re: "One Mind" in Hua Yen thought

Huayan says the same of phenomena/dharmas as they arise only in the mind so they are all of the same nature. Being identical in nature is why it is said the "one" (nature) is the same as the "all" (phenomena). But like you said the nature or the one isn't a Vedatin notion of a single monolithic and...

Re: "One Mind" in Hua Yen thought

The crypto-Vedanta view of "one mind" is treating the "singular" aspect of the principle as an entity rather than a quality or characteristic. "One mind" does not mean there is "one" singular, transpersonal mind. "One" in this context means "same" in the sense that the nature of mind as non-arisen a...

Re: "One Mind" in Hua Yen thought

And what are the implications of the quasi-Vedanta usage? There is a Buddhist term for non-dual, which is ‘advaya’. It is similar, but different, to the Hindu ‘advaita’. They’re different forms of non-dualism. And in this thread I think the distinction is being blurred. Here are some sources on the...
