Bodhicitta

Post by kalden yungdrung » Sun Sep 22, 2019 12:00 pm

Tashi delek,

Mostly, via relative Bodhicitta one reaches Absolute Bodhicitta.
Both, are a never ending mission, within the Tibetan Spiritual Traditions.

HH Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche


The practice of compassion increases our capacity to care. Enlightenment will be ours when we are able to care for others as much as we care for ourselves.

The best meditation is no meditation

Thank you very much, Kalden.

:good:
The presence of space makes it possible for the whole universe to be set out within it, and yet this does not alter or condition space in any way. Although rainbows appear in the sky, they do not make any difference to the sky; it is simply that the sky makes the appearance of rainbows possible.
Phenomena adorn emptiness, but never corrupt it. Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche.

For anyone that might be confused, Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche one one of the greatest modern Karma Kagyu Buddhist teachers.
Although I guess it’s OK for Bon people to “borrow” him to make a point.

My apologies, my indignation got the better of me.
I’ll start again. Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche was one of the greatest modern teachers of the Nyingma school of Vajrayana Buddhism
But if Bon people want to “borrow” him I guess that’s OK. :smile:

Tashi delek,


Thanks a lot that i have the "permission" to "borrow" some sayings about Bodhicitta from a great Nyingma Master.
You can also "borrow" some Bön Dzogchen etc. , no problem, that is ok :twothumbsup:

Nyingma and Bön can go together because of their common 9th Way called Dzogchen as the top in their Spiritual Tradition and their common source Kuntu Zangpo.

Further, in Dolpo are there mixed Bön / Nyingma families, so we know Nyingma very well and they know Bön very well.

Last week I stumbled over this post
and found it very much worth thinking of.
(which doesn't mean that I've gotten anywhere far with my thinking...)

Bodhisattvas and No self or others?
viewtopic.php?t=24303&start=20

First Vasanas quote of James Low - thanks for that!!
Here the second last paragraph, but the whole thing is worth sooo much
In the beginning there is space, and something moves in space. What? Energy. Energy moves in space and creates everything. Buddhists understood this a long time ago. Energy moving in space. So the beings whom we are going to free are energy moving in space, not recognising that they are energy moving in space because they believe that they are a substantial person with substantial problems that need to be helped. How then do we help them? If you try to help them by helping solve their substantial problem, you confirm the paradigm of ignorance that they are living in.
And later on Malcolm's post
It is an established doctrine in several Tibetan Buddhists schools that buddhas only see buddhas, and that compassion for sentient beings is spontaneous and not intentional.
:bow:
Ho! All the possible appearances and existences of samsara and nirvana have the same source, yet two paths and two results arise as the magical display of awareness and unawareness.
