Another fun book to share

Post by Bruce » Sat Nov 18, 2017 4:44 pm

Seven discussions to help to bring certainty in practice according to Nyingmapa tradition:

According to which of the two negations do you explain the view?
Do arhats realize both types of selflessness?
Does meditation involve grasping at an object?
Should we do analytical meditation or settling meditation?
Which of the two truths is most important?
What is the common object of disparate perceptions?
Does Madhyamaka have a position or not?

Anyen Rinpoche wrote a readable commentary on this text as well.
Kye ma!
The river of continuity is marked by impermanence.
Ceaseless flowing of appearance.
Beautiful and repulsive.
The dance of life and death is a display of the vast expanse.
With gratitude the watcher and the watched pass through the barrier of duality.

"Even if you practice only for an hour a day with faith and inspiration, good qualities will steadily increase. Regular practice makes it easy to transform your mind. From seeing only relative truth, you will eventually reach a profound certainty in the meaning of absolute truth."

I have both the Beacon and Anyen Rinpoche's book about it, Journey to Certainty. So far, I've only looked at the first topic. I plan to resume my study of those texts, but have plenty else on my plate. I would be curious to hear how others have found them helpful.

Meanwhile, Padmakara's new translation of Longchenpa's Finding Rest in the Nature of the Mind: Trilogy of Rest, Volume 1 is due out tomorrow. My copy should arrive in the mail that day, so that's going to top my reading list for a while.
