"Everything we encounter and perceive in our daily life is a product of our imagination, but because we believe in the illusions we create, they become such deeply rooted mental habits that we completely forget they are little more than fantasy. The imagination is therefore one of our most powerful tools, and working with it by changing the ways we look at our world is what we call the practice of visualization."
~Dzongsar Rinpoche

Non-duality and Meditation

We explored a few words from the Heart Sutra and the some from the Zen poem Sondokai "The Identity of the Relative and Absolute.

Sandōkai, refers to the unity, harmony, or meeting of sameness and difference, the relative and the absolute. San-Dō-Kai. “San” means plurality, diversity and difference. “Dō” means sameness, equality, oneness, or commonality. “Kai” means “to shake hands” or agreement. “San” is associated with the Japanese principle of “ji” or relative reality, “dō” with the Japanese principle of “ri,” or absolute reality. The poem shares its name with an earlier Taoist text, underscoring the historical influence of Taoism on emerging Chinese Buddhism. The poem is essentially about the unity of ri and ji, or non-dual and everyday reality.

January - March found us in deep exploration of our ordinary mind & our Pristine Mind helping us to awaken to the Infinite Mystery that we Truly all are

"The luminous nature of mind, like the changeless sky, Is unaffected by temporary events."
~ Bodhisattva Maitreya

"The vividly clear present moment of unceasing awareness is primordially perfect enlightenment." ~Padmasambhava

As we develop the motivation to gain a better understanding of our mind through direct experience. It is as simple as relaxing the mind and observing it with loving kindness, perseverance and patience.

Is unaffected by temporary events."

"All phenomena are awakened mind,
and to use a metaphor the

Buddha nature is like space,
which is also the ultimate meaning of awakened mind.
Space, air, water, earth, and fire-these five
are the superb manifest aspect of
buddhahood within
awakened mind."

A journey into the most essential and ever-present nature of our experience – pure Knowing, the truth of our own Being. No previous philosophical, religious or spiritual orientation is required for these contemplations, for they offer a contemporary, original and highly experiential approach to the essential nature of all experience, free from all traditional religious or spiritual dogma.

Lex Hixon's "contemplative expansion" of Mother of the Buddhas: Meditations on the Prajnaparamita Sutra

Mother of the Buddhas: Meditations on the Prajnaparamita Sutra by Lex Hixon
"These Perfect Wisdom Sutras (Heart Sutra) are revered as accomplishing the impossible, expressing the inexpressible, and making trans-verbal enlightened reality accessible to the verbally cultivated mind. They constantly deconstruct themselves as they go along, proclaiming that their teaching is not a teaching at all, that there is no attainment, no attainer, no understanding, no understander, but, importantly, no nonattainer, nor nonunderstander either."

Happy Wesak!!!

Wesak Day is one of the most important festivals in the Buddhist calendar as it commemorates three significant events in Gautama Buddha’s life – namely his birthday, enlightenment and passing away.

During this festival flowers, incense and candles are offered to remind us that, just as flowers wither and die, and incense sticks and candles burn away, so too life is temporary.

Guess who's coming to Satsang? i
A who's who of Master Teachers and more or less...
We will also be using Dr. Greg Goode's book "The Direct Path: A User Guide" for conducting our own experiments that will explore what/how we experience/perceive as the world, the body, the mind, abstract objects and witnessing awareness. From what seems the most dense to the most subtle and beyond. We will proceed step by step from the simple perception of a physical object all the way to the collapse of the witness into pure consciousness.
Greg is a Direct Path practitioner & has the same linage as Rupert Spira, Francis Lucille, & Shri Atmananda Krishna Menon.

Week of 5-13-14
the Heart Sutra:

We explored some of Lex Hixon's "contemplative expansion" of Mother of the Buddhas: Meditations on the Prajnaparamita Sutra This book traces the transmissions from living Buddha to living Buddha. Centuries of teachings as the enlightenment of the Buddha is passed on into the future to reach us now.

Mother of the Buddhas: Meditations on the Prajnaparamita Sutra by Lex Hixon

The root message of the Sutra is non-duality - that is, there is no "me" and "you", no "object" and "observer", no "known" and no "knower".

This fundamental unity of all being leads to a universal approach to enlightenment - working for the enlightenment of all beings not just one's own.

All Existents Are Buddha Nature

Om Tadyata, Gate, Gate, Paragate, Parasamgate, Bodhi Svaha

"Om it goes like this,
Pure Presence is transcending, ever transcending, transcending transcendience, transcending even the transcendience of transcendience,
It Is Total Awakeness
It Is Suchness."
