'agod pa

Post by Josef » Tue May 17, 2011 2:29 am

Well, what the heck does it mean?
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.

That doesn't seem to be anything according to either of my dictionaries (assuming you put it in Wylie). But god pa is decreased, diminished, lost.

edit: Just remembered. Perhaps you misread the Tibetan and it says 'god pa?
Although many individuals in this age appear to be merely indulging their worldly desires, one does not have the capacity to judge them, so it is best to train in pure vision.

I thought of that. I checked the text again and it seems like I have it right.
I haven't been able to find anything either. Although the closest I have gotten is lost, diminished, etc.
The text I am looking at definitely has an a chung before the ga.

"establish", etc it is not 'agod but rather simply 'god.

Relax, don’t worry about all the problems of samsara. Everything is relative. But try to be present.
