Without My Lama’s Blessings

“Without my Lama’s blessings ~ like earth, water, and warmth necessary for seed to grow ~ having entered me,

Recognition of my true nature is impossible.

Now that I’ve come to the direct path, not taking the long way around,
May I persevere in my practice of the sublime Dharma!

Although hundreds and thousands of explanations are given,
There is only one thing to be understood ~

Know the one thing that liberates everything ~
Awareness itself, your true nature.”

Samsara

“The nature of samsara (cyclic existence) is is like a dance which is continually moving and changing. On the inner level, the state of our mind is in a state of constant flux. Sometimes we are happy, but that never lasts. Then we are sad, but that doesn’t last either. Then we become angry and that changes too.

On the outer level, samsara is a reflection of our own inner deluded mind which never stays the same. Clearly, the outer level is also a continual process of change. In relation to time, impermanence is reflected in the four seasons of the year. Summer changes to autumn, autumn changes to winter, winter changes to spring, and spring again changes to summer. We may feel the universe is unchanging, by virtue of its vastness, but it too is impermanent. The outer universe changes four times within each aeon. first, there is only emptiness, and from this emptiness the universe is born. Then it exists, and finally it dissolves back into emptiness. This whole process is called one aeon. ”

~ Lama Tharchin Rinpoche
