  1. The Seed of BuddhaDhamma

    The arrows are merely "paths". As Emptiness deals with all existence, The Mind must also conform to Emptiness. The Mind as a whole is very complex, the whole is made up of parts. Those diagrams are between the whole and parts, used in analytical meditation. With liberation it deals with the phrase: "Reality as it is", most would see a full phrase (Whole), but it's made up of parts, but also has Cause and Effect. There is a phrase in "White Lotus" - "No Name, No Thought, No Formulation is there for the Wisdom that has Gone Beyond" that is "as it is" or Perception. If Perception is a Cause, what's the effect? Designation. What is Designation? Reality. Reality as it is - Designation, Perception. Most view "Cause is just Cause and Effect is just Effect, Cause is no other than Cause and Effect no other than Effect", that phrase is independence. If everything has both Cause and Effect, you get "Karma Chains", interdependence. Perception and Designation are both contain Cause and Effect. Perception (Cause) creates Designation (Effect)- Inner and Outer Designation (Cause) creates Perception (Effect) - Inner and Outer You can take the above and plot multiple interdependent impermanent Karma chains of your lifetime. The difference in Sentient Beings: Lower levels use "as it is", just perception, Human Beings use Reality, as it is, both perception and designation. The following has only been released to the two Tenzins, a lot of this work requires the realization of Emptiness. Replace Designation with Compassion, Selflessness and Emptiness. Each alter designation and perception remains "as it is".
  2. The Seed of BuddhaDhamma

    There is a Seed and Roots of the Cause of Suffering, it is the two things you have in common with All Sentient Beings across this Universe, hence the ability to Liberate All Sentient Beings. You start with intelligent Sentient Beings since they Destroy their Habitat, causing Animals and Insects to Suffer (All Interdependence). The Seed: Perception The Roots: Designation. Perception and Designation create Reality. Through the Sense organs of Perception, designations are created. Designations create Thought and Emotions. Thoughts and Emotions both inner and outer. Through Designations of the untrained Mind you create your own "Reality". Designations are Memories within the Brain and constructs of the Mind. You replace Designations with Compassion, if you look at the meanings of Compassion, find Designations. Perceptions, Thoughts, Emotions, Actions/reactions all become Compassionate. Replace Designation with Selflessness, "There is no "I", no "me", just "One or Oneness". "No Name, No Thought, No Formulation is there for the Wisdom that has Gone Beyond" - Liberation of Mind - Awakened Awareness - Reality as it is By your Designation of Dharmakaya, Perception and Designation prevails lifetime after lifetime. Designation is seen and unseen, Neither Perception nor Designation are fixed in anyway. Nothing in Existence is fixed in anyway. What say you?
  3. The Seed of BuddhaDhamma

    Liberation comes through realization, realization comes from practice, practice comes from understanding, understanding comes from Wisdom and Compassion. Root Cause; “Cause of Suffering through Senses.” - That means the perception of the Mind. Perception caused by education and personal experiences (upbringing, interactions) both of which create personal identity (independent) or Self Bias (non-realization). When the Bias of one person conflicts with the Bias of another, there is suffering. Emotional disorders that are environmental (created through interactions) are caused by the distortion of Reality. If you have a basic understanding of Emptiness, everything is interdependent and impermanent. Which means, every action and non-action you do is interdependent on impermanence and also impermanence. Otherwise, once you became angry, you would be angry till the end of Samsara. The Easy Way: If you are looking for something that you just read, then instantly be granted that realization and become liberated from suffering, you should take the easy way out and put the blame solely on society, but remember you are not independent, just like One, you are a part of society. By the part of the definition of Compassion, all are equal, unless you wish to say "you have Ego", Since Emptiness governs you as it governs all existence, you have to deal with the interdependent impermanence (the change of everything) unless you believe you are Immortal, in immortality there is No Change. The hard way (Many years of practice) So, if you have the understanding of Compassion, you practice Compassion through Selflessness and loving-kindness to everyone, when you choose who is deserving of your Compassion, suffering arises and you walk the three evil paths of Self (Selfish, Self-centered and Self-righteous) then the three poisons arise. And if you do not know what loving-kindness means, it's the following Metta: "May I be happy. May I be well. May I be peaceful. May I be free. May all beings be happy. May they be well. May they be peaceful. May they be free." If you notice, the Metta is internal and external, inner and outer, directed at you and those around you. Compassion is both inner and outer. Add in the basic understanding of Emptiness along with single point and analytical meditation, you start to understand you choose to suffer through your perception, through your Senses, through your bias. Analytical Meditation can be used to figure out the "Causes" and single point meditation used to dissolve those "Causes". And for the charts, it helps to know how your mind is working, since only when you free yourself from the shackles of your mind will you find liberation and Sentient Beings have different capacities of learning or ways of learning. The Secret of Dharma: You read Dharma out loud, use the Senses (Eyes,Ears and Speech), the three senses that most suffering arises from. You teach yourself: " Right View, Right Resolve, Right Speech, Right Conduct, Right Livelihood, Right Effort, Right Mindfulness and Right Samadhi" All the above comes from the beginning of this thread, maybe it is not Real Dharma or maybe your Lineage is Contaminated or the better answer would be, you have no Lineage meaning you are self taught. Buddhas are not Gods, they don't carry Magic Wands, they don't transfer their realization to you. Since Realization arises from Dharma Practice or your Effort in cultivating Buddha Nature.
  4. The Seed of BuddhaDhamma

    Well, since your Primordial Mind is a "blueprint" of your Consciousness, hence why you believe your awareness is your consciousness, The cause of suffering isn't the Primordial Mind, since within Enlightenment there is no suffering. As the Mind develops "Cause of Reality through Senses", that is the roots of suffering. The seed of suffering, is the Mind itself. There is a Chinese phrase: "When you stand behind one's mind does the golden flower blossom", "to stand behind one's mind" = Primordial Mind, "Golden flower blossom" = Enlightenment. BuddhaDharma destroys the seed and roots of suffering, leaving the Primordial Mind "Cause of Reality through as it is." If you knew the Four Seals, the foundation of The Great Dharma Treasury, the second seal: "All contaminated phenomena causes suffering." you should know "contaminated" means the lack of "Reality as it is". This is all fundamental BuddhaDharma, without the contamination of Lineages. Maybe the diagram below will help you.
  5. Sogyal Rinpoche is fully aware what now will happen upon his death, he should've known what Compassion means, that wisdom alone is not enough. Recently a Rinpoche spoke out to support Sogyal Rinpoche, now he is having issues, maybe he should've stayed clear of the Non-virtuous acts. If you look at those acts, you should see the absence of Compassion. But if you do any of those acts, those act do not protect you anymore. You should always test teachings of Guru's, Compassion being the foundation. Before any physical actions, should ask yourself a single question: "Is it going to harm me or those around?" From a different thread a question of: "Why would the Dalai Lama need One's help?", One understands and carries the realization of Emptiness. By now the Dalai Lama should have that realization, for he tests the teachings, only through testing teachings do you find Realization.
  6. What exactly is emptiness?

    Emptiness is very small to very large and also contains both. It's Fundamental Laws of Existence: 1. It's the interdependence of existence. 2. the impermanence of existence. 3. the cycles of existence. Emptiness also contains Quantum Mechanics, since you are a quantum form, your mind is a quantum form and your consciousness also. How everything fits together and arises. Fundamentals of Emptiness are used to dissolve negative emotions. Emptiness is all that was, is and will ever be. Emptiness is Not nihilism, Emptiness destroys nihilism. When the word "Empty" is used, it may not mean a void, but a fundamental of Emptiness. One has told lama's to define the words they use, so that the monkey mind doesn't distort the meaning. This is Emptiness in simplicity: Emptiness “People (impermanence) create the Ignorance (Impermanence) that covers up Enlightenment (Permanence)” Impermanence = Impermanence Not Permanent = Not Permanent Or Impermanence creates Impermanence Not Permanent creates Not Permanent As people are born, live and die, a cycle of Impermanence. People are Impermanence. A mother and father together create a baby, the mother, father and the baby, Impermanence. When a building is destroyed, the building is also Impermanence. As a flower grows from a seed, it too is impermanence. You can see impermanence, you can smell impermanence, you can touch impermanence, you can hear impermanence and even taste impermanence. Your thoughts are impermanence, your situations are impermanence. Impermanence surrounds you, impermanence you create and others create impermanence for you. Form or Body is Impermanence Form or Body creates pain and suffering Pain and suffering is also Impermanence Impermanence = People = Form = Suffering = Impermanence You create attachment, attachment is impermanence. The attachment to impermanence causes suffering. If you can easily understand what is impermanence, to realize impermanence just look around. Everything you see, hear, touch, taste and feel, ask yourself “is it impermanence? Can it be destroyed?”. Test out the above, maybe you will start to realize the vastness of Emptiness.
  7. “Dependent Arising of Interdependent Impermanence through Designation.” Let’s explore the above quote. Dependent Arising means everything arises from a Cause, so nothing is independent. So, remove “Dependent Arising” and replace it with the word: Cause. “Cause of Interdependent Impermanence through Designation.” What is Impermanence? What is Interdependent Impermanence? Reality. Replace “Interdependent Impermanence” with the word: Reality. “Cause of Reality through Designation.” What is Designation? As it is. Remove “Designation” and replace with the words: As it is. “Cause of Reality through as it is.” Reality as it is? Dependent Arising of Interdependent Impermanence through Designation. Attachment to Impermanence is a Cause of Suffering. As in the above, Impermanence or Interdependent Impermanence are Reality. So, the Cause of Suffering is Reality. So, use the following phrases: “Cause of Reality through Designation.” – The Dream “Cause of Suffering through Designation.” – Self, The Phantom Designation deals with the Senses. So, remove “Designation” and replace it with: Senses. “Cause of Reality through Senses.” “Cause of Suffering through Senses.” “Through the Senses, the Cause of the Reality of Suffering.” “Through the Senses, the Cause of the Dream of Self.” You should be able to see The Four Noble Truths, the beginning of the Path, even The Four Seals. No matter what the Lineage, it holds truth. What use's the Senses? The Mind. What counters the illusions of the Mind? Wisdom and Compassion is Union. If you believe you already know this: Why have you not shared it? Why do you not have Inner Peace? and Why did you read this post?
  8. Who is Maitreya Buddha?

    There is a Sutra that gives an approximate time frame for when Maitreya comes. "Great floods will suddenly occur; they will strike by surprise, unlooked-for. The people of the world will have no faith, and hence they will take the world to be permanent. Living creatures of every variety, with no distinction between gentry and the base, will be drowned and float away, dashed about, to be eaten by fish or turtles." "At that time, there will be Bodhisattvas, Pratyekabuddhas, and Arhats; the gang of Maras will drive them away, and they will not participate in the religious community. These three types of disciples will enter into the mountains, to a land of merit. Tranquil and self-controlled, they will rest content in this. Their lives will grow longer, the various Devas will protect and watch over them, and Candraprabha will appear in the world. They will be able to meet him, and together they will make my Way flourish." "In fifty-two years after that, the Shurangama Scripture and the pratyutpanna-samádhi will prematurely change and vanish, and shortly afterwards the twelve divisions of the Mahayana canon will also be destroyed in their entirety, and will not appear again. The robes of the monks will spontaneously turn white." "When my Dharma is destroyed, the process will be comparable to an oil lamp, which, drawing close to the time it will go out, will shed an even greater radiance and brilliance, and then be extinguished. When my Dharma is destroyed, it will surely be like a lamp going out." "What will happen then is not possible to describe in detail. But several thousand myriad years after this happens, Maitreya will descend to be Buddha in the world. All-under-Heaven will enjoy peace, prosperity, and equality; the pestilential vapors will be dispersed and expelled. The rain will be suitable to growth and no more, and the Five Grains will grow and flourish. Trees will grow large, and men will be eighty feet tall. All of them will live eightyfour thousand years. It is impossible to count how many living things will be able to be saved."
  9. Rare Esoteric Buddhist Teachings

    When it comes to Jesus, there should be wooden plates that tell the story of who taught Jesus, whether they are still around, that's another thing. When Belief systems look to use Ignorance, they end up destroying what counters their motives. (The same is true for Governments) The word "God" is generalized, One could say God, Yewah and Allah, the same God and Heaven, The Kingdom and Paradise, the same place. By saying that, The Family of Abraham would be worshiping the same God and have the same Heaven. If you look at the Holy Books, Quran, Torah and the Bible. The Quran and Torah share similarities, just the Cultures are different. But the Bible has been changed so many times, there is only fragments that link to the Quran and Torah. If you know the Fundamentals of the Bodhisattva Path, find the oldest copy of the Quran, read threw it and find Fundamentals buried in it. But within the beginning pages of the Quran it say's "when you read this Book, remove ownselves", meaning to be Selfless, without Bias. The same is true with the Torah. But, there are many paths, all seeking Peace. If it's true about The Family of Abraham, Why not just one Religion? multiple cultures. If anyone thinks that there should be one Belief system, know this: What Belief system has no blood on their hands? even Buddhist do, you can look in the past. For there to be one Belief system, none of the Belief systems of this World, nor any God. But you could say "it's not the Belief system, it's the People." it's one or the other, so it's better to have multiple Belief systems, all have respect and find Peace. For the original thread: It's not Buddhist, there are Sutra's that have the influence of Christianity but also their are Lineages. When Emptiness is added, the real meaning of the word "God" is revealed. Knowing that meaning, any Sutra that has that word in it, you know the context (True or False Sutra) but also know why "Buddha's are the Teachers of Gods." This "Ultimate Reality" that part of The Family of Abraham is saying is God, actually means "The Realization of Emptiness, Reality as it is" since there is no Ultimate, but Realization comes after understanding and practice. Should not steal what you do not understand and twist it in your ignorance. As One said to a Tenzin, the word "Deity" is seen as a God/Goddess, Buddha's and Bodhisattva's are not Gods/Goddess's, the more appropriate word would be "Role models", what you seek to be like, what you seek to walk in the footsteps of, using the words "Role Models" removes ignorance. "No Being knows everything, since everything is: all that was, is and will be, through the Beginning-less and Endless cycles of Existence." "With The Profound Wisdom of Emptiness, you only Realize the Fundamental Laws that govern the Beginning-less and Endless cycles of Existence.- Reality as it is."
  10. What is Dalai Lama doing?

    If you are well versed in the Sutta's, you should be able to give the sequence of Sutta's that create the original path, the same path used over 2500 years ago. You should also know there are Sutta's that have the evolution of this planet and the lifespans of celestial bodies. When combined together they give the hidden meaning of the Mala (108), then you take Emptiness and convert it to Binary and get a Double Helix. With the two hidden secrets of both Sutta's, you can plot every known non-conscious Form in a chemistry lattice, but also find the unknowns. But before all that, you have to combine Hinduism and Buddhism together to create what are called the "Universal Keys", buried in the Vedas and the Wisdom Sutta's. From a part of all that, you can go through all known history and find Stupa locations, The Four Guardian Stupas, the influence of the distant past Buddhas. Then you find what was stolen from Hinduism and Buddhism, to be used for ignorance, used to conform all belief systems. All that is testing the teachings, making sure Dharma has not become corrupted, since Dharma can only be practiced by Consciousness. Emptiness in simplicity has the power to remove the "Creator God" concept since God's were not meant to be creators, People made them into Creators just for Self-Righteousness (Ego). Here's Emptiness in Simplicity: Emptiness “People (impermanence) create the Ignorance (Impermanence) that covers up Enlightenment (Permanence)” Impermanence = Impermanence Not Permanent = Not Permanent Or Impermanence creates Impermanence Not Permanent creates Not Permanent As people are born, live and die, a cycle of Impermanence. People are Impermanence. A mother and father together create a baby, the mother, father and the baby, Impermanence. When a building is destroyed, the building is also Impermanence. As a flower grows from a seed, it too is impermanence. You can see impermanence, you can smell impermanence, you can touch impermanence, you can hear impermanence and even taste impermanence. Your thoughts are impermanence, your situations are impermanence. Impermanence surrounds you, impermanence you create and others create impermanence for you. Form or Body is Impermanence Form or Body creates pain and suffering Pain and suffering is also Impermanence Impermanence = People = Form = Suffering = Impermanence You create attachment, attachment is impermanence. The attachment to impermanence causes suffering. If you can easily understand what is impermanence, to realize impermanence just look around. Everything you see, hear, touch, taste and feel, ask yourself “is it impermanence? Can it be destroyed?”. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- "The Past, Present and Future are all stacked in a moment" The past what you've read, the present this word, the future beyond this, maybe that is why you should be mindful of each moment. May say there is no permanence, permanence can not be changed, why think about what can not be changed? What can be changed is what you focus on. What you focus on is all Emptiness. Now you should know why Emptiness is part of the Foundation of the Teachings. But also why Compassion is also very important. When One encounters people that fall back on holy books, then start using quotes, One knows they have not tested their teachings, Blind Faith, but also they are Self Grasping and cause suffering to themselves and others, but never to One. When you test the teachings, you'll see the Common Sense, find the hidden wisdom and have no need for quotes/references. Sometimes One will write just so you can understand/realize your Self Grasping. "If you get mad at an object, that object is not doing what you want it to do, how Selfish of you"
  11. What is Dalai Lama doing?

    That is the 11th Panchen Lama that China kidnapped, from communications with China, he's been killed. China created their own Panchen Lama, and are going to try and create the next Dalai Lama. For the greatest gift, "Others before you" the act of Selflessness, act of kindness, act of caring, all acts of Compassion, but maybe Compassion is not Truth. For Shakyamuni's teachings, the true ones (test the teachings) are True in the past, present and future as long as Humanity exists, but everything is Impermanence. But you should know that Manjushri is the Guardian of the Family of Shakyamuni, but there are hidden meanings of the Trinity of Shakyamuni, Manjushri and Maitreya. From the Four Seals came the Four Noble Truths and The Noble Eightfold Path which contains the Four Seals. The Four Seals are Pure Dharma, all of Shakyamuni's Teachings came from The Four Seals, that is why they are known to carry the 82,000 teachings of Buddha and 2000 teachings of Bodhisattva's or what is known as The Great Dharma Treasury and Manjushri is the Guardian of the Great Dharma Treasury, Guardian of the Four Seals. One did not add any Sutra's for a reason. It does not matter if you believe One, One is not here to prove anything, you test the teachings to find the Truth, when you do, you proved (Realization) it to yourself. As it is said "Buddha's can not give you realization, can only give you the understanding", when it come Emptiness, everyone has that realization it is just covered up by the mud(ignorance) and since you are born with Compassion, everyone has Enlightenment, everyone has Buddha Nature. So Why is this World so violent, so much Suffering? This World forgot to put "Others before themselves". Test the teaching of "Others before you" at least you will be removing some suffering and find Compassion. "For every gift of Form, Suffering is attached, Selfless gifts have no Form, so no Suffering." and before you make a remark about that quote, have the Realization of Emptiness and Compassion. And the Sutra's were not written by Shakyamuni. Are there 82,000 Sutra's? Some Sutra's have multiple teachings and even some teachings were not taught. Then again a Buddhist is someone who follows All the 84,000 teachings, not those that fit your Bias, that suit you. As Shakyamuni was not a Buddhist, since Buddhism was created to honor his Compassion, One is not a Buddhist, One follows the Four Seals.
  12. What is Dalai Lama doing?

    For most of the Dalai Lamas life, he's taught Compassion, you would think if people listened the world would be better off by now. At a point he was losing hope, now he will never lose hope. For over the past year One has been helping both Tenzins, one uses a computer and the other teaches Compassion. Over 100 documents have been sent, some unfolded Suttas, while others the Profoundness of the Teachings. The fundamentals of The Family of Abraham, that which is buried within those Holy Books and even the Secret that King Solomon used to bring Peace to Islam, Judaism and Christianity. One is known to be of Chinese origin, the Chinese government knows of Ones presence, there is a phrase "When Compassion and Wisdom work together, there is Peace". One is the Guardian of those that walk the Bodhisattva Path. To some Buddhist Temples (monasteries/nunneries/sanghas), One is known as The Medicine Buddha Manjushri or just Manjushri. Doesn't this world need a Medicine Buddha more than a Guru Lord Buddha? Through Compassion and Wisdom, the Three Poison and the Three Evil Paths are destroyed. It's all by choice, but Wisdom in simplicity choice is removed. As a Mother protects her Child. Why would you choose to Suffer? One wanders among, sits among, you never where One is, by appearance you can not know a Buddha, One does reside in the United States, wandering to multiple temples, concealed by appearance. Buddha's do not seek Fortune nor Fame, they walk/sit among and teach: The greatest gift that can be given: "Others before One" as it was, is and always shall be.
  13. What is Dalai Lama doing?

    This part of the Wiki page: Controversy. They should remove that part since it is Pure Ignorance. The word "Mara" in English is Demon, not a correct translation. A better translation of the meaning of "Mara" is Self. The Third Seal says "All phenomena have no Self". You are phenomena. Mara or Self comes as being Selfish, Self-centered and Self-righteous(Ego) or what is known as The Three Evil Paths. The Three Evil Paths that create the Three Poisons which creates Suffering or The Second Seal (All Contaminated Phenomena cause Suffering). Suffering is Impermanence, so The Three Evil Paths are also Impermanence and The Three Poisons also Impermanence, hence The First Seal: "All Phenomena is Impermanence". This phrase: "Buddha's triumph over the attack of Mara and his protection of all sentient beings." The first part should make perfect sense now, knowing what Mara means. The second part of the phrase: "his protection of all sentient beings." His protection is The Great Dharma Treasury, many Paths to liberation, to find inner peace. The Fourth Seal: Nirvana is Peace The Four Seals, the foundation of the 84,000 Teachings of Buddha, the foundation of all Turnings of the Great Wheel.
  14. What is a Buddha?

    This thing about the Guru Lord Buddha Maitreya is total ignorance. In a Sutta it gives the progression of Buddha's from Shakyamuni to Maitreya. The Guru Lord Buddha Maitreya appears when the Dhamma fades away, but there is one that comes before Maitreya and after Shakyamuni. As for Buddhahood, it is not a destination, it's hidden in every step of the Path, in every lifetime. Should be careful, there are people around pretending to be Maitreya, when One finds them, they hear a Lion Roar.
