Question: I've never before worked with Vajrasattva. Is it sufficient to have a small print on my altar that I use as a focus, such as the image printed in "Preliminary Practices of the Dudjom Tersar”?Question #2: Does the ngondro end with the 7th section called “Generosity of Giving One’s Body and the Dedication of Merit”?Thank you,John
This may be a heretical question, but is Lama Sonam enlightened?
Freddy it sounds like you're saying the natural state involves not thinking or stopping thoughts. Is that right?
That would be Dzogchen, then wouldn’t it? The natural state?
and to clarify: what does "cut it" mean? does that mean "stop thinking" or does it mean let thoughts dissolve themselves?
Birds and traffic sounds.
Freddy are we only giving this human body in chod or is it the 4 kaya body as well?
There is no 'I' who gets enlightened, yet there is 'I' who is generating bodhichitta to acheive enlightenment. not really a question...
What is the meaning of the Tibetan writing that might appear on the back side of a Vajrasattva thanks? The writing appears behind specific places on Vajrasattva’s body?
So would Lama Sonam now be my root lama that I pray to?
oh you mean remind yourself experientially of stillness
I really like discursiveness.
Calling Lama from Afar & receiving blessing, next much fear arises, what do you advise?
Thank you, Everyone
This was a wonderful teaching. Thank you for your kindness Freddy.
i realized i shared this earlier to Freddie directly: “Begin by contemplating one of the four thoughts, and then allow the mind to relax. Then pray to the lama, or another object of your faith, for the blessing to accomplish something of benefit for yourself and others before impermanence intervenes and you no longer have this body. Arouse compassion for the predicament of beings and make the wish that all will be liberated from the cycles of suffering. Then establish the commitment to apply your understanding and the methods of dharma diligently in order to accomplish this. Then contemplate the next thought, again allow the mind to rest, then pray, arouse compassion, and confirm your commitment to free all beings from suffering, and so forth.”
from “Gates to Buddhist Practice by Chagdud Tulku Rinpoche“
