Sudden Enlightenment

The Buddha Shakyamuni held up a flower in his hand and blinked. Out of three hundred people only Kasyapa understood and was suddenly enlightened. Twenty eight generations latter Bodhidharma was destined to bring this transmission of the lamp to the central kingdom at the Shaolin Temple and became the first patriarch of Chan. One day Bodhidharma walked up the mountain with Huike and asked,"where are we going?" Huike replied, "please go ahead-That's it". Bodhidharma said,"if you go ahead, you cannot move a step" and Huike was suddenly enlightened. After Huike became the second patriarch Sengcan asked him to obsolve him of his sins and Huike replied,"show me your sins and I will obsolve them for you". Sengcan said,"I can't find them," and Huike replied, "there, I have absolved you" and Sengcan was suddenly enlightened. Daoxin asked Sengcan,"I beg your compassion, please show me the way to liberation." Sengcan replied," who is binding you?" Daoxin said, "no one is bindng me." Sengcan replied,"then why look for liberation," and Daoxin was suddenly enlightened. The sixth patriarch was a poor illiterate pesant who sold fire wood in Canton city to support his mother. One day a traveller was passing by reciting the Diamond Sutra and Huineng overheard him say,"activate your mind without dwelling on anything", and Huineng was suddenly enlightened.

The mind to mind transmission of the Chan lineage was limited to a small population of accomplished ones until the sixth patriarch Huineng. When Huineng gave a teaching many thousands of people showed up regardless of tradition, religion, gender or social class and all of them would go home enlightened. Since so many people had sudden enlightenment realizations by attending his teachings he became known as the founder of the Sudden Enlightenment School. Though he was the thirty fourth patriarch under the Buddha Shakyamuni and the sixth patriarch under Bodhidharma, as was prophesized by his master Hongren, the transmission of the robe and bowl and the single master Chan lineage ended with him. Huineng had too many great disciples and they all spread out through the central kingdom and its vassal states like the rising sun making the Chan School and its sudden nature preeminant. Though the masters of Chan were innumerable few stood out and shook the world like master Linji. Linji gave very little discourse that could be comprehended outside of realization. He communicated with Gongan and stick leaving doctrinal teachings so far behind the words just disolved on the paper. The Linji School became the most popular and still flourishes in the modern world. A Japanese disciple named Konghai brought these teachings to Japan where it also became the predominate school in Japan and Korea. Linji in Japanese is pronounced Renzai. Because Japan was open to the West these teachings also headed west and the Linji School became known as the Sudden Enlightenment School in English. However, Linji is just the name of the crazy wisdom Chan master who's teaching style became the most prodominate at a time when the human potential for the teachings were ripe. The transmission beyond words, the teaching beyond teachings, sudden enlightenment is primordially comergent and exists within us all. All we have to do is wake up to our own true nature to find it.

Uncontrived, unconditional and uncomprimising the Sudden Enlightenment School, like the true nature of mind, wavers not always hitting the one main focal point. When seekers of Chan meet a Sudden Enlightenment teacher the teacher immidiately accesses the students capacity. The teacher finds a gap in the student's thought process and hits him directly at the space between two thoughts jaring his mind wide open. In that openess he recognizes his true nature. maintaining that awareness he reaches liberation from samsara. The sixth patriarch exclaimed that it's not the school or teaching that's sudden or gradual but the capacity of the student. The teacher and teaching is already perfect and free from sudden or gradual. Only the student's capacity is sudden or gradual when trying to free themselves from samsara.

The transmission of sudden enlightenment comes through the wisdom master's skillfull means. If the master or disciple is lacking in capacity then sudden enlightenment will not take place. However, the Buddha's teaching are vast and profound and radiates like the sun. Even the hardest of fruit can be riped by the sun and so can sentient beings who study the Buddha dharma.

Activate the mind without dwelling on anything!!!



Emei Sudden Enlightenment School

Samanthabadra Emei Mountain is the sacred abode of the Maha Bodhisattva Samantabhadra and is one of the most spectacular mountains in the world. Rising to 11,000ft. above the clouds on the border land between China and Tibet, Emei Mountain is a rainforest full of Buddhist Temples, exotic animals and sacred herbs. Rare species of pandas, butterflies, bears, peacocks, snakes, and monkeys can be found throughout the mountain. The extremely potent Snow Lotus Flower stays in bloom throughout the winter even under the heavy snow. The Golden Hair Dog Root stops bleeding just by touching it. Snow and red lingzhi mushrooms the size of coffee tables are know to confer immortality for the local monks and spirits. From the Golden Summit Temple you can watch the sun and moon cascade across the 24,000ft. Konga Mountains of Tibet one of the highest mountain ranges in the world. Quite often miracle signs and blessings appear at the Emei Golden Summit such as the Buddhist halo, multiplying lanterns, sky signs, unusual rainbows and maybe even a visit by the golden monkey. Samantabhadra has been know to bestow blessings and miracle healings even to our group of pilgrims.

Emei Mountain was originally inhabited by Shamans and mountain spirits and then eventually became a Daoist holy mountain several centuries BC. By the first century the Buddha's Mahayana Sutras began to settle on the mountain and Buddhist temples were errected establishing a refuge for the Buddha Dharma. the Great Bodhisattva Samantabhadra manifested from the sky riding his elephant and settled on the mountain making it his sacred abode. Since then it has been of the four major Buddhist sacred mountains. The other three being Maha Bodhisattva Manjushri's abode on Wutai Mountain near Beijing, Maha Bodhisattva Avolokitishvara's abode on Puto Mountain an island mountain off the coast of Shanghai, and Maha Bodhisattva Kshitigarbha's abode on Jiuhua Mountain.

By the seventh century Tang Dynasty Emei Mountain had become a beacon of light for the wisdom traditions. The Shamans, the Daoists, the Hinayana, Mahayana, Vajrayana and Sudden Enlightenment practitioners all merged on Emei Mountain making it a wonderland of esoteric knowledge. Most of the Daoist institutions moved to the neighboring Qingcheng Mountain and built their monasteries there but a close connection remains to this day. Though Emei Mountain became a receptical for so many schools and their teachings it also became know as the store house for the Avatamsaka Sutra which became prolific on the mountain. Emei Mountain was also the transmitting point for the Diamond Sutra throughout the Far East. It's no wonder the Maha Bodhisattva Samantabhadra claimed the mountain for his sacred abode.

By the twelveth century Southern Song Dynasty Samantabhadra had established Emei Mountain as his sacred abode and the Sudden Enlightenment School as the mountains main Dharma vehicle. A sixty two ton bronze statue of Samantabhadra was cast in Burma and brought up the mountain to the Myriad Years Temple. Like the pyramids in Egypt no one knows how they got it up there. Either UFO's brought it up or they used a tremendous amount of block and tackle. In 1227 AD a Wudang Daoist medicinal and martial abbot named Baiyun came to Emei Mountain and settled in at the Golden Summit Monastery on the mountain's peak. Baiyun became a Buddhist monk and eventually the abbot of the Golden Summit Monastery. One night Samantabhadra appeared to him in a vision and told him to pass his knowledge down to future generations and allow the teachings of the Emei Sudden Enlightement School to shine like the sun and help rid the world of pain and suffering. Baiyun went on to scribe the Precious Lotus Cannon and formulated the Emei Sudden Enlightenment School's External Energy Diagnosis and Treatment System. Baiyun gathered from what he called the three thousand six hundred schools and the eighty four thousand techniques, and formulated The Twelve Forms of Emei, The Buddha's Diamond Palm Training, The External Energy Diagnosis System, The External Energy Treatment System, The Six Major Pills and The Four Minor Pills. In coordination with all of the Shaman, Daoist, Buddhist, medicine, martial, and folk traditions that inhabited Emei Mountain the Golden Summit Monastery under Abott Baiyun's guidence really blossomed and stayed that way for the next seven hundred years.

During the Qing Dynasty all of the sacred wisdom traditions flourished throughout the Far East. The Qing were naturalists and didn't want to modernize because they felt that railroads, telegraph lines, and factories destroyed the fengshui and natural harmony of the environment. They spent all of their resources on building more palaces and temples and not on modernization. This material weakness caused the Qing Dynasty to be overthrown by America and the Japanese invasion of World War II. During WWII a western trained doctor in the Nationalist party Zhou Qianchuan developed a nervous condition like shell shock as a result of the war and suffered terribly. The eleventh Emei Sudden Enlightenment School's lineage holder Yongnian was gathering herbs down at the bottom of the mountain where he met Zhou Qianchuan and brought him back to the Golden Summit Monastery. He cured him of his disease and Zhou Qianchuan lived with him for thirteen years learning all aspects of the system. Zhou Qianchuan always wanted to take vows and become a monk but Yongnian wouldn't let him. Yongnian foresaw the future turmoil of Emei Mountain and told Zhou Qianchuan to go to Shanxi, Province and he himself went to a nearby mountain range in Kanding, Tibet.

The western invasion, Japanese war, civil war and the Cultural Revolution all took its toll on Emei mountain. Many temples were looted and destroyed and many of the monks left. After the one hundred and fifty year struggle against the west the communists finally liberated China from further occupation and things calmed down for ten years. Master Zhou went to Beijing and transmitted the complete lineage of the Emei Sudden Enlightenment School to His Holiness Zhuzan the Chairman of the Buddhist Association of China. When the Cultural Revolution of ninteen sixty five took off many practitioners went underground and Zhuzan only praticipated in political duties. It all ended in ninteen seventy six and China immidiatley began improve. Zhuzan exclaimed, "it came from the people, now give it back to the people" and opened the teachings to all people regardless of tradition, religion or social class. Today there are many practitioners of the Emei Sudden Enlightenment School. Emei Mountain and its sacred traditions like the rest of China is experiencing a renaissance and will hopefully return to its former glory.

The Emei Sudden Enlightenment School is a hybrid of all the eastern wisdom traditions rich in esoteric knowledge and power. Through transmission practitioners can quickly reach new levels of awareness and enlightenment which is the trade mark of the school. One of the school's transmissions is the qianneng empowerment which helps practitioners open their third eye. One aspect of an open third eye is energy awareness. By seeing and feeling qi energy practitioners can use energy awareness to open their channels, strengthen their energy centers, purify their bodies and mind, diagnose and treat diseases very quickly. Many people in the gradual schools spend a life time waiting for this types of awareness and ability which exists within all of us always. An experienced master can help you unearth this hidden potiential by using the transmission of wisdom and skillfull means. During the Qing Dynasty there was a Beijing Opera star who was famous for doing flips without his very large crown falling off. He was getting ready to retire and told his disciples that who ever could develop the ability to do the flip without loosing their crown by year's end would take his place in the opera. At the end of the year no one knew how to do it so he picked his favorite disciple and taught him the secret. The master told him to clench his jaw while flipping and the crown will stay on. That's it. Everyone can clench their jaw and make their hat stay on because the muscles on the side of their head expands holding the hat tightly in place. Many realizations are just that easy.

Sudden Enlightenment, Sudden awareness and sudden abilities are just this swift because it's something that's within all of us all the time. It is not something that you have to run down to the store or travel to another planet to acquire. It's not even something you have to spend a life time looking for. When the right teacher and the right student come together under the right conditions with the right teaching all things are possible and the ultimate can be understood. Some gradual schools set their goal for enlightenment at some future life time far far away. Some gradual schools set their goals for when its time to die and take rebirth in a pure land. Some gradual schools set their goal at some point within this life time but are not sure when. Practitioners of the Sudden Enlightenment School don't have any goals at all because they've been dissolved by enlightened awareness. It's all dissolved in this very moment right here and now as it has always been. It's just up to you to develop an enlightened attitude and allow realization to dawn in your mindstream.

An eagle's flight leaves no trace. Is our's any different?



Amituofo
Amituofuo
Amituofo is the recitation that instantly neutralizes all illusions of duality and maintains stability in the great state of equanimity. Of course that’s the nature of all mantras and recitations but there are several qualities that make Amituofo unique. Amituofo is the name of Amitabha, Buddha of limitless light in Mandarin Chinese. When two Chinese Buddhists greet each other, instead of shaking hands, they join their palms together and recite Amituofo. When eye consciousness makes contact with new phenomenon the mind of dualistic attachment immediately begins to classify this new information into helpful or harmful, good or bad and other dualistic categories so as to determine the right reaction.

Joining the left and right palm together and placed in front of the heart is a “great symbol” of the uniting of duality into the perfect mandala of minds enlightened space. Reciting Amituofo then spreads the light of that enlightened space and the heart’s true nature to the receiver of the greeting and all who witnesses it. This inspirational greeting of Amituofo is an expression of enlightenment and is a neutralizing force in this saha world of subject-object, good and bad relationships.

Reciting Amituofo liberates conceptions, perceptions, impulses, consciousness, emotions and thoughts as they arise. Before emotions can create an action the recitation of Amituofo can neutralize your mind bringing about a harmonious reaction. Since ancient times when the emperor brought crates of gold offerings to the monastery the abbot’s only reply was Amituofo. When the latter dynasty’s armies brought destruction to the monastery the abbot’s only reply was Aimtuofo. Attached to neither good nor bad, praise nor contempt the master’s mind always rests in the great space of peaces beyond dualistic fixations and attachments.

In our own lives we can use this recitation of Amituofo to pacify our conflicting emotions on a daily basis. When someone cuts you off driving down the road or beeps their horn at you instead of cursing at them let Amituofo be your natural reaction. You will immediately notice that your own negative reaction has been pacified and bliss and compassion will begin to develop. Try playing an audiotape of Amituofo while driving to help pacify any emotions that might rise. When your boss, workmate, spouse, offspring, or someone on the street says or does something that creates an emotion of either praise or anger allow Amituofo to be your natural reaction. This will neutralize the ego’s attachment to dualistic fixation and dissolve all phenomenon into your own true Buddha nature free from both attachment and aversion, hope and fear.

The Buddha Amitabha lives in his Buddha field of infinite light and bliss. By reciting Amituofo on a continual basis with faith, love and devotion we will take rebirth there and avoid the lower realms of samsara after we die even though we might not have purified all of our negative karma. By meditating on Amitabha and reciting Amituofo his Buddha field comes closer and closer and all his qualities begin to dawn within our being. Practicing with diligence we will begin to discover that our Buddha nature has united with that of Amitabha’s and the world we live in has become a Buddha field. The Pure Land School is the largest school of Buddhism in the world and their main practice is simply the recitation of Amituofuo. It pacifies all conflicting emotions into the mandala beyond thought, your own true nature, Buddha nature.

Om Mani Padme Hum

Avalokitishvara

Om Mani Padme Hum is the mantra of the great compassion one Avalokiteshvara, the lord who enlightens through sound. There are many meanings on many levels to Om mani padme hum. There are inner, outer, and secret meaning as well as many esoteric applications but loosely translated in direct relation to Avalokiteshvara is, the one who rises from the primordial ground of luminous wisdom with the jewel and the lotus. This jewel is no ordinary jewel but a wish-fulfilling jewel that can bestow the most precious of wishes, enlightenment. It also represents clarity, luminosity, and indestructibility, which are some of the qualities of the enlightened mind. This lotus is no ordinary lotus either but the birthplace of all the Buddhas. The lotus represents the lotus family of Buddhas, purity, transformation, transference and transcendence. Om represents the accomplishment of transcendence and Hum represents the ground primordial luminosity of enlightened awareness.

Om Mani Padme Hum is also known as the six-syllable mantra of great illumination. Though mani means jewel and padme means lotus all together there are six syllables and its recitation purifies all of the six realms of samsara’s cyclic existence. The four main parts of the mantra are named after four celestial energy spheres from which the divine energies descend from when reciting the mantra.

The seed syllables of the mantra that purify the six realms of samsara are:
Om purifies the god realms internally and prevents taking rebirth there externally.
Ma purifies the demi-god realms internally and prevents taking rebirth there externally.
Ni purifies the human realms internally and prevents taking rebirth there externally.
Pa purifies the animal realms internally and prevents taking rebirth there externally.
Mi purifies the hungry ghost realms internally and prevents rebirth there externally.
Hum purifies the hell realms internally and prevents taking rebirth there externally.

The external locations of the six realms of samsara are:
The god realm exists in the upper strata of the heavens.
The demi-god realm exists in the lower strata of the sky.
The human realm exists on the upper dwellings of the earth.
The animal realm exists in the lower dwellings of the earth.
The hungry ghost realm exists inside the earth.
The hell realm exists in the depths of the earth.

The internal locations of the six realms of samsara are:
The god realm exists in the crown of our head.
The demi-god realm exists in our throat center.
The human real exists in our heart center.
The animal realm exists in our navel center.
The hungry ghost realm exists in our secret center.
The hell realms exists in the spring well of our feet.

The characteristics of the six realms of samsara are:
The god realms suffer from arrogance.
The demi-god realms suffer from jealousy.
The human realms suffer from attachment.
The animal realms suffer from ignorance.
The hungry ghost realms suffer from greed.
The hell realms suffer from hatred.

The pre-existing seed syllables and the colors of the six realms of samsara are:
The crowns seed syllable is Ah and its color is pale white.
The throat seed syllable is Su and its color is pale yellow.
The heart seed syllable is Nri and its color is pale blue.
The navel seed syllable is Tri and its color is pale green.
The secret seed syllable is Pre and its color is pale red.
The foot seed syllable is Du and its color is sooty black.

Some examples of the six realms of samsara in our human realms are:
The politicians live in the god realms.
The pop stars live in the demi-god realms.
The middle class lives in the human realms.
The uneducated or mentally challenged live in the animal realms.
The impoverished live in the hungry ghost realms.
The war victims and those suffering from urban plight live in the hell realms.

The nature of samsara is suffering
All of these realms commingle and interact with the other realms of samsara’s suffering individually and simultaneously. Though sentient beings may suffer from one major characteristic they also contain all of the characteristics of the other realms. An animal such as a lion might suffer from pride. A human like a president might suffer from ignorance. A god might suffer from hatred and a hungry ghost might suffer from jealousy. The wheel of samsara turns round and round and any form of mundane happiness that we acquire in samsara like health and wealth is only as fleeting as our uncertain lifespan, or a dew drop in the desert wind. The only thing we will take with us at the time of death is our good and bad karma, merit and spiritual wealth. Everything else will stay behind and dissolve back into the earth and samsara’s wheel of continual suffering.

The benefits of reciting Om Mani Padme Hum
By developing the power of the six-syllable mantra suffering on every conceivable level can be treated and even cured. Physical diseases can be treated and cured. Mental diseases can be treated and cured. Spiritual diseases can be treated and cured and complete liberation from the wheel of samsara can be obtained. It is said that in this degenerate stage of human evolution that even seeing a picture of a Buddha or hearing its name is a blessing. To actually come in contact with a qualified teacher, teachings and to practice with results are very rare indeed. If this is your first time coming into contact with this mantra of inconceivable wisdom then you too can recite Om Mani Padme Hum and begin a complete healing process from our mental and physical aggregates into the sublime blessings of your own wisdom mind. If you are familiar with the Mani then maybe there are some new applications here that might benefit your practice.

How to access the power of Om Mani Padme Hum
To hear this mantra or recite it even once is to receive a blessing but to continually recite it throughout one’s life and realize its power is to reach complete liberation from samsara’s wheel of suffering. Just by reciting Om Mani Padme Hum healing energy begin to generate in your being. A certain amount of stability and power is developed when you recite it one hundred thousand and one million times. Better yet is to receive tantric initiation into the mantra which will immediately connect you with its power. Either way the time to begin reciting Om Mani Padme Hum and access its power is right now.

The physical benefit of reciting Om Mani Padme Hum
Reciting the six-syllable mantra of great illumination will have immediate physical benefits. When you concentrate on the injured or diseased area of concern and recite Om Mani Padme Hum healing energy from other areas of your body, the environment and celestial energy fields will gather there and the healing process will begin. To increase the healing process just increases the amount and intensity of the recitation. Flood the area with the divine white light of the mantra’s vibration and disperse the black sooty diseased energy into the absolute sphere of equanimity. For general health, purification and harmonization you can recite the mantra internally or externally and allow its vibration to circulate throughout your whole body without concentrating on any one area. Just follow the vibration and light with your mind’s eye and allow it to flow freely throughout your energy centers and channel systems. If you want to concentrate on any one body part just bring the mantra’s vibration back to the area of concern and a greater amount of healing in that area will take place. It will disperse the diseased energy and blood stasis harmonizing the area back to health and when practicing to perfection, even into the youthful vase rainbow body of immortality.

The mental benefits of reciting Om Mani Padme Hum
Mental agitation is a result of stagnation and imbalances in the organs and channels systems and that’s it. Each organ and their corresponding channels harbors and controls different emotions and that’s the major reason why everyone perceives situations in different way. A certain situation will make some people laugh, some people cry and some people to get angry. The object or situation they perceive is always neutral regardless of how good or bad one perceives it to be, but the reason why they react with different emotions is solely based on their psychophysical condition. A car accident has created a traffic jam and everyone is late for work. Some people will laugh and call the driver an idiot, some will cry and try to rescue them, and some will get angry and curse them for making them late. The nature of the car accident is perfectly neutral only the reaction of the individuals will classify it as good, bad or indifferent. Their classification of the event is solely based on their physical, mental and spiritual condition in coordination with the nature of their organs and channel systems. Like Amituofo and all mantras, Om Mani Padme Hum has the ability to neutralize the sway of emotions when stimulated by externally-internally arising phenomenon and circumstances. Mantra recitation is therefore the greatest form of subjecting mental agitation and diseases restoring calm abiding and equilibrium in the practitioner.

The spiritual benefits of reciting Om Mani Padme Hum
Since beginningless time we have repeatedly taken rebirth in all six realms of cyclic existence in all forms of life from the lowest to the highest. By reciting the six-syllable mantra of great illumination each syllable purifies the internal and external realms of samsara and blocks the doors of their rebirth. It purifies our organ and channel systems restoring our health into the youthful vase body of immortality. And, it harmonizes our unstable minds bringing about the calm abiding of deep samadhi. Thoughts of past, present and future run through our minds in series one after the other like the clouds of a hurricane. By reciting Om Mani Padme Hum the mind becomes stable from the dualistic fixation of past or future, good and bad, happy or sad and brings them back to our original and perfect state of enlightened awareness, deep samadhi. Maintaining this state of deep samadhi fruition of enlightenment and cause in the mind both harmonize for realization of the pure undefiled Dharmakaya and liberation from rebirth into the lower realms of existence is achieved.

Healing others with Om Mani Padme Hum
Om mani padme hum can also be used to treat and liberate the suffering of other sentient beings physically, mentally and spiritually. To transmit the powers of the six-syllable mantra reflect on your own enlightened nature and visualize yourself as the Bodhisattva Avalokiteshvarava. Begin your recitation of Om Mani Padme Hum and apply the four techniques of the great compassion palm energy transmitting system. Visualizing yourself as the Bodhisattva Avalokiteshvarava allow you to reflect upon your own true nature and empowers yourself with the Bodhisattva’s qualities. Recitating Om Mani Padme Hum builds up a protection shield around you and allows you to generate a greater energy flow. Using the great compassion palm techniques gives you greater control over the transmission process. Place your mind in the sky, gather your energy by raising your palms over your head and draw them down to the area of concern using the four techniques of the great compassion palm.

The techniques of the great compassion palm are:
Pai Pump your palms up and down over area of concern while reciting Om Mani Padme Hum. This increases the pure energy while draining the diseased energy.
Zhuashuai Grab the sick energy above the area of concern and throw it down towards the feet flicking any remaining energy off your fingers. This drains out the sick energy.
Zhao Allow the palms to hover over the area of concern and transmit the healing energy into the area. This engenders the health of the diseased area.
Shudao After establishing a good energetic connection with the diseased energy in the area of concern draw it down and out through the feet dredging the related cannels.

Increasing your energy with Om Mani Padme Hum
the kidneys are the main store house for physical, mental, and spiritual energy and is also the main store house for sexual energy. Therefore By tonifying the kidneys through energy cultivation and meditation a practitioner can increase his health, healing and enlightenment. Visualize Avalokiteshvarava above your head holding the wish fulfilling vase filled with the liquid light elixir of immortality. As you recite Om Mani Padme Hum for a couple of minutes concentrate on the liquid light elixir getting stronger and brighter. On your last recitation of Om Mani Padme Hum visualize Avalokiteshvarava pouring the warm liquid light elixir and the Hum seed syllable into your your Brahman aperture, down through your central channel, and branch off into both of your kidneys. Then use your abdomnal breathing to increase the warm liquid light in your kidneys for just a minute or two. Draw down the elixir several more times and then increase the energy in your kidneys with abdominal breathing. After a few minutes of abdominal breathing just sit dissolved in meditation for as long as you can. When you're done place your palms on your kidneys and rub them up and down thirty six times. Then place your palms on your abdomen and roll them clockwise and counter clockwise nine times each. With continual practice you should begin to see a transformation in your self physically, mentally and spiritually.

Treating sentient beings in passing with Om Mani Padme Hum
Quite often we see people or animals either suffering or dieing while we’re traveling down the road. If they are sick or injured visualize yourself as the Bodhisattva Avalokiteshvarava and concentrate on their area of concern. Recite Om mani padme and then as you recite the hum with some force draw the sickness down through their feet with the power of your concentration. Do it once or many times it can have profound effects for you and the suffering.

Opening your Brahman aperture with Om Mani Padme Hum
To open the heaven’s gate of the Brahman aperture take a large and slow breath. Concentrate on the left lower part of your abdomen and recite Om. Then the left upper part of your chest and recite Ma. Then the right upper part of your chest and recite Ni. Then the right lower part of your abdomen and recite Pa. Then four fingers bellow you navel and recite Mi. Then recite Hum while drawing the energy up through your central channel with your mind’s intent, through the Brahman aperture and into space all in one breath. Repeat this many times until you get some realization such as a tingling feeling or red and white pus dot on top of your head at the Brahman aperture.

Transfering the consciousness of the dead with Om Mani Padme Hum
For people who are dead or near death visualize yourself as Avalokiteshvarava. Connect your mind with the energy of their heart center and their consciousness and recite Om Mani Padme. Then recite Hum with some force and draw the energy of their heart center and their consciousness up through their central channel, out through their Brahman aperture and into the center of space. Spend as much time as you can with them until you see some red and white pus signs on the top of their head at the Brahman aperture. They should also have a light smile on their face and their heart center should be cool. Then you know the transference is complete.

The vast ocean of teachings on Om Mani Padme Hum are inexhaustible. After the great lotus born Guru Padmasambhava, who’s very speech is Om Mani Padme Hum, firmly established the Vajrayana teachings in China, Mongolia, Tibet, Kham, Jang, and Hor the disciples who gathered for their final teaching asked for the most condensed and powerful teaching on an expedient means to enlightenment. The fully enlightened Nirmanakaya Orygen Rimpoche replied, just continually recite Om Mani Padme Hum with faith, love and devotion and liberation from the samsaric world of pain and suffering will surely be achieved.

May all sentinent being who come in contact with this teaching on the sound-light vibration of Om Mani Padme Hum be freed from their suffering and the causes of their suffering. May they never be disassociated from the perfectly pure mandala of intrinsic awareness free from both attachment and aversion, hope and fear.

Om Mani Padme Hum



Om Ah Hum Benza Guru Padme Siddhi Hum
Padmasambhava

Om Ah Hum Benza Guru Padme Siddhi Hum is the mantra of the great lotus born Guru Padmasambhava. The Buddha Amitabha gathered the energy of all the Buddhas of the ten thousand directions into his heart center and transmitted this pure light into a lotus flower in Lake Danakosha in the country of Odiyana. From this lotus flower the immaculant Padmasambhava was born. India and China had already been Buddhist nations for centuries but Tibet had too many obscurations to be fully endowed with the Dharma. They needed a nirmanakaya Buddha with the power over time and space and the wrathful compassion to lead Tibet out of its sleeping stupor. Therefore the wisdom Buddha Manjushri took reincarnation as the king of Tibet, Trisong Detsun, and invited Padmasambhava to establish the exremely potent Vajrayana Buddhist teachings there.

Though Guru Padmasambhava was fully enlightened at birth he reabsorbed all the Buddha's teachings on earth and in space and spread them throughout India, China, Tibet, Mongolia, Buhtan, Nepal, Jang and Hor. After subduing the hostile forces of Tibet he established the cosmic mandala of Samye Monastery to firmly plant all of the Buddha's teaching in Tibet. He invited many great masters from India and China to translate and transmit the complete spectrum of Buddhism there. Samye Monastery was built and concencrated as a sacred mandala that represented the cosmos with the three floors of the monastery representing the three great Buddhist nations of India, China and Tibet. The Indian floor represented the Hinayana and vinaya teachings, the Chinese floor represented the Mahayana and dhyana teachings, and the tibetan floor represented the Vajrayana and tantra teachings. All together the three vehicles of Buddhism were fully planted and the great wish of the Dharma King Trisong Detsun was fulfilled.

Even today the energy at Samye Monastery some fourteen hundred years later is really intense. Behind the monastery is Mala Mountain and the 108 caves of Samye Chimpu where practitioners go on retreat. There pilgrims can witness many modern day miracles such as self imminating statues in the cave walls, hand and foot prints of Padmasambhava and other great masters, and even Padmasambhava's finger drawings in solid rock. The number of sentient beings that reach enlightenment here past, present and future are innumerable for the blessings that flow through this cosmic mandala are infinite.

Om Ah Hum Benza Guru Padme Siddhi Hum is the mantra of Padmasambhava and its blessings are swift. There are vast meanings on the inner, outer and sectret levels of this mantra and also has a multitude of esoteric applications.
Om is the seed syllable of the crown chakra.
Ah is the seed syllable of the throat chakra.
Hum is the seed syllable of the heart center.
Benza means diamondtine awareness.
Guru means teacher.
Padme means lotus.
Siddhi means extrodinary power.
Hum primordial luminosity of all things.

Om Ah Hum Benza Guru Padme Siddhi Hum on an outer level is a simple suplication to Padmasambhava. It means; Oh great lotus born guru who bestows the diamondtine awareness empowerment to my body, speech and mind. Please bestow the great spiritual siddhi powers upon me and ripen my being so that I may never be seperated from primordial luminosity.

There are millions of ways and means to translate and understand Om Ah Hum Benza Guru Padme Siddhi Hum but by visualizing Padmasambhava floating in the sky recite the mantra and recieve his blessings. when you recite Om visualize a white light coming from Padmasambhava's forehead and disolving into yours purifying and empowering you with the body of a buddha. When you recite Ah visualize a red light coming from Padmasambhava's throat center and disolving into yours purifying and empowering you with the speech of a Buddha. When you recite Hum visualize a blue light coming from Padmasambhava's heart center and disolving into yours purifying and empowering you with the mind of a Buddha. As you recite Benza Guru Padme Siddhi Hum allow rainbow light to eminate from your heart center and into the ten thousand directions purifying the body, speech and mind of all the sentient beings in samsara. when you are done with your recitation transform Padmasambhava into a vajra and draw him into your Brahman aperture, down through your central channel and into your heart center. Allow the vajra to increase the rainbow light emminating from your heart center.

Visualizing the lotus born guru Padmasambhava in the sky in front of you is an invocation from the enlightened aspect of your own Buddha mind. Reciting Om Ah Hum Benza Guru Padme Siddhi Hum with faith, love, devotion, compassion and wisdom bestows all of the spiritual powers and qualities your mind can concieve of. On the outer aspect continual recitation will bring you closer to Padmasambhava and his Buddha field of copper colored mountains. On a inner aspect continual recitation will purify all of your energy centers and channel systems transforming your body into a Buddha field. On the secret aspect continual recitation will open your mind to the realization that Padmasambhava is you and you are Padmasambhava and that you have been so since beginningless time.

With Amitabha on the crown of my head I praise the transcended light.
With Avolokitshvara in my throat center I praise the compassion beyond dualistic fixation.
With Padmasambhava in my heart center I praise the rainbow beyond time and space.

May all being reach enlightenment through the Buddha Dharma.

Om Ah Hum



The Five Precepts

The Five Precepts of Buddhism and Daoism are the same and they sound a lot like the Ten Commandments. Though most of us have a general idea of what they are here are some main points to reflect on in our daily lives.

1. No Killing.
If we don't want to be killed don't kill other sentient beings. The killing of sentient beings only results in the killing of ourselves. How we kill sentient beings whether for food, sport, pleasure, revenge, greed or hatred is the exact same way we will be killed at some point in the future when our karma comes around to meet us. If we live by the sword, we will die by the sword. Killing with enjoyment, for profit, out of hatred etc... develops the worst karma. Killing with remorse, out of necessity, or by accident develops the least bad karma. Of the many different categories of killing, killing a Buddha, Bodhisattva, Arhat, saint or spiritual master is the worst. Very simply try not to create or participate in the killing of sentient beings if you want long life and happiness. Take life and your life will be taken. Give life and you will receive life. People who eat meat can help counter the bad karma they accrue by engendering the life of animals when ever they get a chance. Many people used to buy animals from the market and set them free but in this modern society of animal food production it is very hard to do. There are many creative ways to pay back your karmic debt to all of the animals that have died so that you can have life. Do what you can and eat less meat, eat without a greedy heart and don't enjoy eating meat too much. How would you like it if you were that animal? Well, actually you are that animal. It is an extension of your own consciousness. So, recite the food prayer with remorse, gratitude and the right intention every time you eat anything.

In Four Appearance theory there is always a little bit of yin in yang, and yang in yin. that is to say there is always an exception to the rule. Mindless fixation to the five precepts can turn the Dharma upside down and create even more suffering so, we should apply common sense and the intent to generate goodness in everything we do. If a crazy person was going to the post office, high school, or church with a machine gun to kill everyone and the only way to stop him was to kill him then do so. Even the Tibetan King Longdharma was assassinated to prevent the total destruction of the Dharma in Tibet. However, this does not give carte blanch to everyone with an agenda to justify the act of killing. As the great Nirmanakaya Padmasambhava has said, "even though I have the highest view, my actions are as refined as flour". very few people have the wisdom to kill without negative karmic ramifications. So, be careful!

2. No Stealing.
The quickest way to become poor is by stealing. Wealth that has been generated by war, stealing, exploitation, deception, price gouging, and so on will only result in eventual poverty. Where many have gone from rags to riches in such unwholesome ways, many of them have just as easily gone from riches to rags in the very same way. All forms of taking without permission will result in the karmic consequence of poverty. To counter our past acts of greed, stealing or bad business practices that has led to our current poverty simply apply the antidote of generosity. People who are wealthy today are so because they have practiced generosity in the past and are currently experiencing the fruits of their karma. If they maintain their practice of generosity and wholesome capital generation then they will continue to experience wealth into the future. In today's modern capitalist delusion many people don't understand the nature of karma and believe that only hard work, stealing, or fast paced business practices will make them rich, but actually all we have to do is practice generosity. Many very wealthy people are not good at business and many are not very smart either but they are living off of the fruits of their past generosity. Whether they remain wealthy or increase their wealth has nothing to do with their business savy but is solely up to their practice of generosity.

Taking what is not given may be the second precept however following it blindly without the power of the mind's good intentions can also result in bad Dharma. if a madman was about to kill a whole group of people and you had the chance to take his machine gun away from him without asking go ahead, take it away. Only by following the Five Precepts with wisdom can they be understood correctly.

3. No Lying.
If we don't appreciate being lied to then we shouldn't lie to others. Not telling the truth only disconnects us from relative reality which only makes it even harder to understand absolute reality once we begin to enter the true path of the Dharma. Sometimes we might feel that if we told the truth in a given situation that we will be embarrassed or that it might lead to our suffering as a result, but it is far better to say nothing at all than to commit a lie. We might only tell half truths or only the one side of the story that will benefit us but even this subtle deception only serve to increase the depth of our bad karma. Of course there are many degrees of lying which generates many degrees or karma. Generally we should always tell the truth and give both sides of the story without thinking of our own benefit. There are always two sides of the coin and omitting one side for personal gain is also a lie.

Generally speaking lying is not a good idea however, If a madman was passing our way carrying a machine gun and asked us where the local high school, or post office was is it's a good idea to point him in the other direction. Common sense should always prevail.

4. No Sexual Misconduct.
Guru Rimpoche said to Yeshe Tsogyal that we should always be careful with our sexual organs. Sexual misconduct has different meanings in different traditions. Generally speaking we should not have sex with monastics or anyone who has taken the vow not to have sex. Causing them to break their vow is not a good idea. We shouldn't have sex on the first moon or the full moon or when a women is menstruating. We shouldn't have sex with people who are too young or too old or when it might cause any harm to a persons physically or mentally. Fornication in the Christian sense would fall more under the classification of no stealing or lying than sexual misconduct but if the third party partner has no problem with it then that would actually make it OK.

If Guru Rimpoche or Yeshe Tsogyal came down from the sky and said they were going to bestow the secret empowerments of sexual union upon you and you said you couldn't because you're a monk or it's on a full moon you might remember that there is always an exception to the rule. Understanding when a precept is a cause for enlightenment or samsara is wisdom.

5. No Intoxication.
Of all the precepts no intoxication is the worse to break. the reason why is once you've become intoxicated it is easy to kill, steal, lie, and commit sexual misconduct all at the same time. Alcohol channels to the liver and the liver controls the emotion of anger. That's why people who drink easily begins to curse, get into fights and create all kinds of bad karma. Other drugs also creates imbalances in the body and mind. Be careful how you use them for they always have different side effects. Intoxication also dulls the mind and body making it harder to strengthen your meditation practice. Keep your mind free from intoxication and you will find the bliss of meditation is far superior than any type of drugs or alcohol.

Though we should not dull the mind and body through drugs or alcohol when it comes as the blood of Christ, the amirita of the Guru or the rakta of the dakinis don't hesitate to take it for it can bestow all of the blessings of the enlightened ones. There is also a saying in Chinese medicine, " where water goes to the stomach, alcohol goes right to the channels". Alcohol is a main ingredient in many Chinese medicines and should be taken if necessary to treat disease. It's not the alcohol that's the problem it's the actions committed when intoxicated.

Even with the highest view, make your actions as refined as flour!!!
