The Great Transfer Experience

Post by Void » Sat Jul 14, 2018 8:30 am

It's no secret that the Star Wars mythology, including the Jedi achieving a body of light and their physical bodies disappearing at death, was inspired by the Dzogchen system. So I asked myself if there is a hollywood movie which probably depicts specifically the Dzogchen achievement of The Great Transfer. Below is a scene of a hollywood movie which seems indeed inspired by The Great Transfer. The depicted details include: Imprinting the hand into solid rock, the aggregates of the body been liberated into their essences (therefore spontaneously the appearance of the body taking on every form the practitioner needs it to), visions (incl. bindus), opening of the kati channel (shining of clear light through the pupils), realization of the dharmakaya through sky gazing, direct insight into appearances of the environment etc. Pretty funny!

A ridiculous trivialisation imo.

we don't know until we experience it. speculations, presumptions and blind faith are useless.
"Don't profess a view you haven't realized!
Since the view is devoid of viewing, mind essence is an expanse of great emptiness.
Since the meditation is without meditating, leave your individual experience free from fixation.
Since the conduct is without acting, it is unfabricated naturalness.
Since the fruition is without abandoning or achieving, it is the dharmakaya of great bliss.
These four sentences are words from my heart:
Contradict them and you fail to discover the nature of Ati Yoga."

But this post is from the person who "has studied more Dzogchen than anyone on the planet".

It couldnt possibly be trivial since it is being brought to us by an individual of such unquestionable authority and superiority.

Ceaseless flowing of appearance.
Beautiful and repulsive.
The dance of life and death is a display of the vast expanse.

You think, you know what I think?

I think, the Music thread is not working. Therefore I post it here:

It is not ridiculous, it is simply ridiculous from your point of view.

If I’d come upon this video clip on my own, I don’t think it would’ve ever made me think of togal.
