Learned Audience,Samadhi and Prajna are united

Lead me from dreaming to waking.
Lead me from opacity to clarity.
Lead me from the complicated to the simple.
Lead me from the obscure to the obvious.
Lead me from intention to attention.
Lead me from what I'm told I am to what I see I am.
Lead me from confrontation to wide openness.
Lead me to the place I never left,
Where there is peace, and peace
- The Upanishads

*this is the 6th Patriarch(and last) of Zen ..from his master work,,THE TREASURE OF THE LAW,,
This is his pic,after his death(he died in meditation,NOT otherwise)

Quote"When alive, one keeps sitting without lying down.

When dead, one lies without sitting up.

In both cases, a set of stinking bones!

What has it do with the great lesson of life?

With those who are sympathetic

Let us have discussion on TRUTH(buddhism)

As for those whose point of view differs from ours

Let us treat them politely and thus make them happy.

(But) disputes are alien to our School,

For they are incompatible with its doctrine"

Chapter IV. Samadhi and Prajna

The Patriarch on another occasion preached to the assembly as follows:--

Learned Audience, in my system Samadhi and Prajna are fundamental. But do not be under the wrong impression that these two are independent of each other, for they are inseparably united and are not two entities. Samadhi is the quintessence of Prajna, while Prajna is the activity of Samadhi. At the very moment that we attain Prajna, Samadhi is therewith; and vice versa. If you understand this principle, you understand the equilibrium of Samadhi and Prajna. A disciple should not think that there is a distinction between 'Samadhi begets Prajna' and 'Prajna begets Samadhi'. To hold such an opinion would imply that there are two characteristics in the Dharma.

For one whose tongue is ready with good words but whose heart is impure, Samadhi and Prajna are useless, because they do not balance each other. On the other hand, when we are good in mind as well as in words, and when our outward appearance and our inner feelings harmonize with each other, then it is a case of equilibrium of Samadhi and Prajna.

Argument is unnecessary for an enlightened disciple. To argue whether Prajna or Samadhi comes first would put one in the same position as those who are under delusion. Argument implies a desire to win, strengthens egotism, and ties us to the belief in the idea of 'a self, a being, a living being, and a person'.

Learned Audience, to what are Samadhi and Prajna analogous? They are analogous to a lamp and its light. With the lamp, there is light. Without it, it would be darkness. The lamp is the quintessence of the light and the light is the expression of the lamp. In name they are two things, but in substance they are one and the same. It is the same case with Samadhi and Prajna.

On another occasion the Patriarch preached to the assembly as follows:--

Learned Audience, to practice the 'Samadhi of Specific Mode' is to make it a rule to be straightforward on all occasions -- no matter whether we are walking, standing, sitting or reclining. The Vimalakirti Nirdesa Sutra says, "Straightforwardness is the holy place, the Pure Land." Don't let your mind be crooked and practice straightforwardness with your lips only. We should practice straightforwardness and should not attach ourselves to anything. People under delusion believe obstinately in Dharmalaksana (things and form) and so they are stubborn in having their own way of interpreting the 'Samadhi of Specific Mode', which they define as 'sitting quietly and continuously without letting any idea arise in the mind'. Such an interpretation would rank us with inanimate objects, and is a stumbling block to the right Path which must be kept open. Should we free our mind from attachment to all 'things', the Path becomes clear; otherwise, we put ourselves under restraint.[5] If that interpretation 'sitting quietly and continuously, etc.' be correct, why on one occasion was Sariputra reprimanded by Vimalakirti for sitting quietly in the wood? [6]

Learned Audience, some teachers of meditation instruct their disciples to keep a watch on their mind for tranquility, so that it will cease from activity. Henceforth the disciples give up all exertion of mind. Ignorant persons become insane from having too much confidence in such instruction. Such cases are not rare, and it is a great mistake to teach others to do this.

(On another occasion) the Patriarch addressed the assembly as follows:--

In orthodox Buddhism the distinction between the 'Sudden' School and the 'Gradual' School does not really exist; the only difference is that by nature some men are quick-witted, while others are dull in understanding. Those who are enlightened realize the truth in a sudden, while those who are under delusion have to train themselves gradually. But such a difference will disappear when we know our own mind and realize our own nature. Therefore these terms, gradual and sudden, are more apparent than real.

Learned Audience, it has been the tradition of our school to take 'Idea-lessness' as our object, 'Non-objectivity' as our basis, and 'Non-attachment' as our fundamental principle. 'Idea-lessness' means not to be carried away by any particular idea in the exercise of the mental faculty. 'Non-objectivity' means not to be absorbed by objects when in contact with objects. 'Non-attachment' is the characteristic of our Essence of Mind.

All things -- good or bad, beautiful or ugly -- should be treated as void. Even in time of disputes and quarrels we should treat our intimates and our enemies alike and never think of retaliation. In the exercise of our thinking faculty, let the past be dead. If we allow our thoughts, past, present, and future, to link up in a series, we put ourselves under restraint. On the other hand, if we never let our mind attach to anything, we shall gain emancipation. For this reason, we take 'Non-attachment' as our fundamental principle.

To free ourselves from absorption in external objects is called 'Non-objectivity'. When we are in a position to do so, the nature of Dharma will be pure. For this reason, we take 'Non-objectivity' as our basis.

To keep our mind free from defilement under all circumstances is called 'Idea-lessness'. Our mind should stand aloof from circumstances, and on no account should we allow them to influence the function of our mind. But it is a great mistake to suppress our mind from all thinking; for even if we succeed in getting rid of all thoughts, and die immediately thereafter, still we shall be reincarnated elsewhere. Mark this, treaders of the Path. It is bad enough for a man to commit blunders from not knowing the meaning of the Law, but how much worse would it be to encourage others to follow suit? Being deluded, he sees not and in addition he blasphemes the Buddhist Canon. Therefore we take 'Idea-lessness' as our object.

Learned Audience, let me explain more fully why we take 'Idea-lessness' as our object. It is because there is a type of man under delusion who boasts of the realization of the Essence of Mind; but being carried away by circumstances, ideas rise in his mind, followed by erroneous views which are the source of all sorts of false notions and defilements. In the Essence of Mind (which is the embodiment of void), there is intrinsically nothing to be attained. To say that there is attainment, and to talk thoughtlessly on merits or demerits are erroneous views and defilements. For this reason we take 'Idea-lessness' as the object of our School.

Learned Audience, (in 'Idea-lessness') what should we get rid of and what should we fix our mind on? We should get rid of the 'pairs of opposites' and all defiling conceptions. We should fix our mind on the true nature of Tathata (Suchness), for Tathata is the quintessence of idea, and idea is the result of the activity of Tathata.

It is the positive essence of Tathata -- not the sense organs -- which gives rise to 'idea'. Tathata bears its own attribute, and therefore it can give rise to 'idea'. Without Tathata the sense organs and the sense objects would perish immediately. Learned Audience, because it is the attribute of Tathata which gives rise to 'idea', our sense organs -- in spite of their functioning in seeing, hearing, touching, knowing, etc. -- need not be tainted or defiled in all circumstances, and our true nature may be 'Self-manifested' all the time. Therefore the Sutra says, "He who is an adept in the discrimination of various Dharmalakshana (things and phenomena) will be immovably installed in the 'First Principle' (i.e., the blissful abiding place of the Holy, or Nirvana)."

*note*.. 
  A friend of mine who is his avid follower told me that Choa Kok Sui out of compassion realized that he is better off helping more people in his disembodied state than while he was alive in his body and hence he left his body. 
 ???...so now we worship dead people or ghosts like Master Demented to the BONE  dead Choa Kok Sui?? and use his cleansing spray???
A cleansing spray developed by the  dead Grand Master, which has a powerful effect on cleansing the aura and chakras.???????? 
This is it?... some spray you pay big for it..and the Master of Disaster *dead to the Bone?...will somehow..raise your energy...a simple spray!..like deodorant!

Master Choa not only conceived the comprehensive techniques designed to cleanse and energize the physical body, thereby accelerating the rate at which the body can heal itself, he even originated new, never before used terms, to thoroughly clarify the concepts he devised.. 
The famous way of .,,how to die like a dog at 53 years age like a dog!!.and after you are dead...blame the others .I never thought of that..so..when you die...you blame the others..makes sense!!!  Haleluyah for the demented master of disaster wisdom..so the Others have issues?..not me..wowww..I feel good now,baby!

I am always amazed of these energy gurus whom healed thousands,then die like dogs at 53 years old like this sucker below..why is that?..be aware that I have treated thousands of people with this ,,prana,, stuff..I even had my own Clinic Healing Center.. one time..to fix the suckers...so do NOT EVER imagine that I am NOT very well acknowledged in this stuff..told you I am a mahayogi..no?..

The reason for the fruitcake Master death was explained from his numb-nuts followers as,,he healed too much the others..and died like a dog for his followers..no?..WHEN in fact he died of a simple cold..that was HIS Mastery over his body...YOU PROVE ME MASTERY OVER YOUR BODY..then WE TALK about healing others..ok?..you dead master Choa kok sui  the numbnuts dead at 53 years old????

Give me a break...please..instead of healing himself..as HE PROCLAIMED HE did it for others...HE DIED like a dog..no?..nothing like a flue or some common cold to wipe our the Great Master of Disaster from the face of the earth at his young age at 53,and save all of us the calamity of worshiping his photo..no?..is not better this way?..told you the universe is wise!

Since WHEN the healing power is personal?..(I think is the divine within us?)

Since when you have to worship some photo?.(.I think is the pristine love within us,not some photo?)

Since this moron said so..that's why he died like a dog!..pranic healing MY ASS!!..THANK YOU GOD you wiped out the Master of Prana numbnuts disaster! ..you teach PEOPLE how TO DO IT..not worship you!!!..


TELLING THEM TO WORSHIP YOUR DEAD ROTTEN Image is NON-SENSE in ALL the religions,especially if YOU DIED like a DOG!..from some flue!...the truth is within,and is you,as essence no?..is the spirit within,you idiot DEAD pranic fruitcake!

BUT IF YOU DIE like a FREAKING DOG from some cold..
YOU are one demented ,,prana healer,,..you Master of Disaster!
Prana healer?..this system is using the ki energies..is all over the world..every culture has it..you invented the ,,prana healing?

A moron shows the way..and you manipulate ki and call it,,prana,,?..since when ,,prana,, is the only word used for bioenergy?
??
Even dead as you are now..I say you were a moron to refuse to teach them healings by themselves.. instead you taught them YOU WERE the POWER.. you ..the moronic Master of disaster!  ....and died like a dog..at 53 years old?

Why NOT you did not heal yourself...MORON Choa kok sui??
Why you had to die like a dog?..hmm?..tell me...I am all ears!

I had my own clinic of,,treating people,, with ki(you called it prana)..and I never .,ever..made people worship my photo..for,,ki,,..BUT YOU DID!..DIE!!...DIE HARD I SAY!.even dead..I say DIE HARDER!..for deluding people of their own POWER within!

Stop it..enjoy your death for now..you demented dude!..
Die like Bruce Willis movie,,Die Harder!!..you cretinoid!
For ..READ My LIPS...you dead man..robbing people of money or stuff..is one thing..
BUT robbing people of any spiritual future ...is a NOT a NICE thing!..

.........................................
I came to know that master Choa kok sui, the founder of Pranic healing movement died in March of this year. He was pretty young and was about 53 years old. The last time I saw Master Choa Kok sui was a couple of years ago in the St John’s Auditorium in Bangalore, where he was conducting a public function of mass healing. He was visibly overweight and looked unhealthy. I came to know that he suffered from many ailments and last year he had a bout of pneumonia and died because of that in March 07. I sometimes wonder why a person who claimed to heal so many illnesses through his psychic powers couldn’t get himself healed. Of course his followers have a ready explanation that he took the karma or the ailments of his students and died for it. A friend of mine who is his avid follower told me that Choa Kok Sui out of compassion realised that he is better off helping more people in his disembodied state than while he was alive in his body and hence he left his body.
Master Choa Kok sui started his healing career somewhere in the late eighties and he visited bangalore in the early Nineties when he introduced Pranic healing in India. He had readily borrowed from many sources in the yoga and occult traditions to create his own patented system of healing. That’s when I came to know about him and also met him in person in Atheetha Ashram of Swami Sahajananda. Choa Kok Sui was very approachable and not quite popular during this time. He later became a cult figure.
Swami Sahajananda was a disciple of Chinmayananda and was into naturopathy and yoga healing. He had walked all over india on foot and collected funds and did a lot of rural development activities in Atheetha Ashram in thally. Choa Kok Sui was invited to the ashram and he later became a patron of that ashram. Swami Sahajananda was influenced by many people from varied backgrounds like Gandhi, E.F.Schumacher, Albert Schweitzer, Arnold Ehret, Herbert Shelton, Osho and Chinmayanada and his teachings were a mixture of the teachings of all these people. He believed in fasting and he did fast for long durations ranging from a week to three weeks. He was also interested in yoga and ayurveda and experimented with a lot of these things. I liked Sahajanada for his social work, simplicity and humility. He was also invited to Philiphines by Master Chao kok sui in 1993. That was his first tour abroad and Sahajanada died a few months later on his return to India. He was diagnosed of cancer and he died at a very young age of 48. I was shocked to hear the news of his death because I had heard many lectures from Sahajanda about health and healing and how yoga, natural hygiene and fasting can improve ones health and prolong life.
Influenced by Sahajananda, I used to follow all the rules of food, hygiene and yoga. I even used to lecture about these things to my classmates in college. But this incident really left me thinking and also changed my views and I decided not to have firm and rigid views about anything and also not fall a prey for fads. I do believe and have found the benefits of moderation in diet and also the benefits of exercises like Yoga, walking and aerobic exercises. I am quite healthy by most standards and have never been to a doctor for years. I feel health and longevity depends on three things genetics, lifestyle and environmental factors. Genetics do play an important role in longevity. Some people are hard wired to lead a long and healthy life in-spite of their extreme indulgence and leading an epicurean life. There are some people who are quite moderate and frugal in their habits and they die young. So it is still a mystery and no one knows the secrets of longevity including the scientists, medical men and other soothsayers who claim to have insights into these things.
During this time even the self help Guru Deepak Chopra was in Bangalore. Chopra was still selling TM and not started on his own and he was not that popular. I found an article in the national newspaper which was quite funny, Chopra claimed that as a result of his practice of TM Chopra has stopped ageing. This was a ridiculous statement and now we all know that Deepak is ageing just like all others. Just compare his old and new photographs. One thing I understood during this time was that these people in the holy and healing business will go to any lengths to sell their products. Most of their testimonials and case histories are false and they only project what was good and suppress any bad evidence.
I know some people in Bangalore who are into pranic healing and they worship their Guru Choa Kok Sui almost as a God. They used to call him grandmaster Choa Kok Sui. There are certain characteristics I see in some of these people. They are all quite paranoid and obsessed with what they call ‘Bad Vibrations’.

They are also very secretive about their meditation and healing techniques like the Twin heart Meditation, Arhatic Yoga, Meditation on the Soul and Kundalini Meditation. You would have to go through their courses where they teach all these techniques for a heavy price. They claim that all these techniques were developed by the Grand Master Himself including all those funny new vocabulary on colour prana and cleansing and energizing techniques. However they don’t realize that Choa Kok Sui has borrowed from many known sources like Bihar School of Yoga, Alice Bailey and Theosophical Society. What he was teaching was not something new and it was quite old and infact very popular in the early part of the nineteenth century and popularized by such authors like the American yogi Ramachakra alias William Walker Atkinson.
Choa Kok Sui towards the end of his life had become a megalomaniac. He even claimed that his photograph has healing properties and now after his death his followers have begun to worship his photograph.

his followers have begun to worship his photograph.

his followers have begun to worship his photograph.


He created a fictitious lineage to which he claimed that he belonged to and associated it with the Mahayana Buddhist master Padmasambhava or Mei Lung as he is called in Chinese. He even went about sending court notices to other energy healing teachers like Mantak Chia of Thailand and an Indian Author. He claimed that these authors committed the grave sin of plagiarising him. He could not use his loving kindness meditation to forgive these people of trespasses and after all these were not some great scientific and technological discoveries that they plagiarised but some rehash of age old yogic techniques.
One of the typical qualities of groups like Pranic healing, Siddha samadhi Yoga and Ravishankar’s art of living is the claim for the unique qualities of the wares they sell. In art of living we have the sudharshan Kriya which is a rehash of energizing breathing techniques and they associate all kinds of mystical qualities to this exercise. The same with the pranic healing foundation, in their websites they have outlandish claims of miracles. There is one instance on the pranic healing website where one of the practitioner of this system has mentioned about a miracle on how his CD player did not stop playing the meditation CD by Choa Kok Suion Om even after hours of the expected duration in the CD thereby defying the laws of electronics.


It cant get more absurd than this.

Pranic Financial Enhancement Techniques

The GMCKS Institute for Inner Studies offers pranic healing and associated courses.
PRANIC HEALING is a revolutionary and comprehensive system of natural healing techniques that utilizes "prana" to treat various illnesses. Prana is a Sanskrit word literally meaning "life-force", the invisible bio-energy or vital energy that keeps the body alive and maintains a state of good health. The Japanese call this subtle energy "Ki", the Chinese "Chi", while the Greeks refer to it as "Pneuma". In Polynesian it is known as "Mana", and in Hebrew, "Ruach" - meaning "Breath of Life."

(Pneuma originally meant "air in motion" and came to mean "spirit" (C G Jung: The Archetypes and the Collective Unconscious p209). It is not cognate with chi etc.)

The founder of this sect is Grand Master Choa Kok Sui, (GM Choa Kok Sui can also be found here, and and thousands of other websites) author of such titles as "Miracles Through Pranic Healing", and also

Modern Founder of The Ancient Science and Art of Pranic Healing

EoR always thinks modern sciences are best founded post-temporally.

Master Choa not only conceived the comprehensive techniques designed to cleanse and energize the physical body, thereby accelerating the rate at which the body can heal itself, he even originated new, never before used terms, to thoroughly clarify the concepts he devised. Master Choa successfully has demonstrated that energy is an important factor in healing the physical body, and through employing Pranic Psychotherapy, also in healing the psyche. [...] Initially trained as a chemical engineer, now students often refer Master Choa as a "scientist of the soul." This scientific orientation enabled him to carefully systematize the techniques of pranic healing and arhatic yoga. Through extensive research, Master Choa developed a discipline called "technology of the Soul."The implications of this are profound, powerful, far-reaching and exciting for mankind.

Well, yes. The scientifically proven existence of the soul, just for starters.

Master Choa Kok Sui believes that we inhabitants of Planet Earth are ready for a major shift in consciousness. We are fortunate to anticipate through Master's incredible generosity of spirit, he will share with us more of his amazing knowledge and his boundless understanding of an immense variety of new subjects.

Is there nothing new here? Every cult leader preaches the "global consciousness shift" while dispensing drops of honeyed wisdom to his wide eyed devotees. Usually for a fee of some kind.

This particular cult offers a plethora of "courses" (for a fee, plus textbooks) such as Advanced Pranic Healing where you can speed up healing by thinking colours at complaints, and

Specific techniques for severe cases:
· Cancer
· HIV+
· Diabetes
· Leukemia
· Kundalini Syndrome

(EoR isn't sure what Kundalini Syndrome is - he doesn't think it's in the Diagnostic Manual). Then there's the Arhatic Sexual Alchemy Course

You will also learn about "Sexual Partnership" on all levels, that has never before been taught to the uninitiated.

Unfortunately, despite its high cost ($A440 for one day) there doesn't appear to be a practical component, so EoR won't be rushing off to attend.

Or $A220 (plus text) to learn how to say Om Mani Padme Hum.

Then there's the Kriya$hakti® [sic] financial healing course, which really starts to show where this cult is coming from. You know those spam and scam shysters who offer you "the secrets of financial wealth" (for only a "nominal" fee)? What about $A770 for

Kriya$hakti® goes beyond by sharing ancient secret formulas for precipitating thoughts into physical reality. This includes never before revealed "mudras" (hand positions) and Eye Positions to accelerate the manifestation of your goals and aspirations. Kriya$hakti® also teaches the Science of Entitlement. This powerful technique allows you to create the conditions that karmically entitle you to have your wishes fulfilled.

Can anyone smell burning scam here? Of course, if you want to learn the "never before revealed" secrets of wealth, you have to complete the Pranic Psychotherapy course first (an additional $A330). At the end of which EoR guarantees someone will be financially very much better off.

In PRANIC PSYCHOTHERAPY, the healer uses advanced energetic extraction techniques on the affected chakras so phobias, compulsions and addictions can be alleviated in a very short time. This is done without the recipient having to reveal any potentially embarrassing personal information. It is not uncommon that in just the first session, a phobia is 70-90% healed.

EoR's favourite, though, is the Pranic Psychic Self Defence course ($A330).

Just Some of What You Will Learn
Closing of the Aura to prevent intrusions
Understand how psychic attacks are launched and protect yourself from them
Endow your business with a protective aura
Utilizing Holy Objects for Protection, Empowerment and Good Luck
Shielding of your personal belongings -including your financial assets!
Multidimensional Shielding Techniques for protection on the Spiritual, Mental, Emotional, Etheric and Physical planes. Attacks could come in from any plane.
Remedies - What to do if the attack has already penetrated your energy fields; learn special extraction techniques to remove them
ENERGY: The missing link in psychic protection - why visualization & intention alone are not sufficient - you can't build a fence with just good intention, you need fencing material
Use the ancient Magic Circles Ritual for comprehensive protection from Angels, Masters and Teachers - one invoked it to get back a runaway daughter!
Stop psychic vampires from draining your precious life force - it could be a cause of insomnia
Learn what causes "bad luck" and change it to GOOD FORTUNE!
Learn the ULTIMATE PROTECTION and MUCH MORE!

Can anyone afford not to do this course?

If you haven't got time to do a course, you could just opt for the books, CDs or Grand Master's Aura and Chakra Spray

A cleansing spray developed by the Grand Master, which has a powerful effect on cleansing the aura and chakras.????????

But how would anyone ever know whether it works or not? Apart from the person raking in the money, of course.

Sadly, this sort of magical mumbo jumbo is supported by one of Perth's largest hospitals for cancer patients. If you're suffering cancer and you're really desperate (a bit of a tautology, that), you can attend the half hour "workshops" for $A60. There's even a hospitals' program with the following goal:

This program disseminates Pranic Healing to as many Western Australian hospitals both private and public, and all allied health professionals, to bridge the gap between complimentary and orthodox medicine by offering a free service of Pranic Healing to patients, their families and staff.

If it's "complimentary", why are they charging for it?

Presumably, this support is due to the wealth of scientific evidence demonstrating the existence of prana and its healing powers. Why, the site even mentions three scientific studies that provide such evidence. Well, sort of. If you think Matsuru Emoto and his magic water pictures is proof of prana (when EoR read his book, there was no mention of prana at all). According to another study (by a nurse and a pranic practitioner)

According to the statistics gathered, preparing birthing rooms by using Pranic Healing techniques had a positive effect on the birthing process and maternal outcome. Specifically, it was observed that there were an increased percentage of births with intact perineum, an increased percentage of non-medicated births and a reduction in the number of complications.

There's a PDF file which can be downloaded. EoR has read it but he's not convinced that there's anything of any statistical significance there, nor quite why caesarean births were excluded (EoR wouldn't dare think the reason would be skewing of statistics).

The final study doesn't even make a pretence of being a scientific document, being described as

The role of Pranic Healing as a Complementary Therapy to Allopathic Medicine is highlighted in this presentation.

Given the emphatic description of how pranic healing is a "miracle", an "art", a "science", how it can "enhance" and "speed" healing, and how it is suitable for just about every condition known to man and dog (including poor finance, psychic attack, cancer etc etc), EoR wonders why the enrolment form requires details of medical complaints, and a medical/GP contact, as well as a parental disclaimer to seek medical advice in an emergency. Surely they're not saying that all the magical scam claims are bullshit? It couldn't be that they're just interested in your money? Surely not.

And what about this disclaimer quoted from Master Choa Kok Sui, tucked away in the Workshops & Meditation Classes for Cancer Patients & Their Carers page?

"Pranic Healing is not intended to replace orthodox medicine, but rather to complement it. If symptoms persist or the ailment is severe, please consult immediately a Medical Doctor and a Certified Pranic Healer."

In other words, if you actually want resolution and treatment see a real doctor. The downside, of course, is that Master Choa Kok Sui will be financially worse off...

THANK GOD THE SUCKER DIED!..
Nothing like a fruitcake dying from a cold..since one is the Grandmaster!..MY ASS!!..at 53 years old dead?..ok..I believe him.
This one is the grandest IDIOT I have seen so far..
A true Grandmaster in dying from the common cold at 53 years old??..what an idiot!

In order to subdue the mind, act with non-action.







Of movement and stillness, be aware of their origin;






There is no work to do, much less someone to seek.






The true and constant must respond to phenomena;






Responding to phenomena, you must be unconfused.






When unconfused, the nature will stabilize by itself;






When the nature stabilizes, energy returns by itself.






When energy returns, the elixir crystallizes by itself;






Within the pot, the trigrams of kǎn and lí(heaven and earth) are joined.






Yīn and yáng arise, alternating over and over again;






Every transformation comes like a clap of thunder.






White clouds form and come to assemble at the peak;





The sweet nectar sprinkles down Mount Sumeru.





Swallow for yourself this wine of immortality;





You wander so freely—who is able to know you?





Sit and listen to the tune played without strings;





Clearly understand the mechanism of creation.





It comes entirely from these twenty lines;





A true ladder going straight to Heaven.-Daoist text -


"The center of the cyclone is that rising quiet central low-pressure place in which one can learn to live eternally. Just outside of this Center is the rotating storm of one's own ego, competing with other egos in a furious high-velocity circular dance. As one leaves center, the roar of rotating wind deafens on more and more as one joins this dance. One's centered thinking-feeling-being, one's own Satoris, are in the center only, not outside. One's pushed-pulled driven states, one's anti-Satori modes of functioning, one's self-created hells, are outside the center. In the center of the cyclone one is off the wheel of Karma, of life, rising to join the Creators of the Universe, the Creators of us.





Here we find that we have created Them who are Us...





Lilly's Law





"In the province of the mind, what is believed to be true is true or becomes true, within certain limits to be found experimentally. These limits are further beliefs to be transcended. In the province of the(true mind..added by danny) mind, there are no limits."" -- John C. Lilly -

Unless you know the emptiness and bliss inside yourself..you'll be a robot forced by the same emptiness and bliss trying to know itself..by pain..inside your self also..trust me!..said the mahayogi!



The student asked: “A sage's response to changing conditions



is unlimited. Does he have to study beforehand?”



He should worry only about his mind's not being



clear, and not about the inability to respond to all changing conditions.”

— Wang Yang Ming (1472-1529)

To us all towns are one, all men our kin. Life's good comes not from others' gift, nor ill. Man's pains and pains' relief are from within. Thus have we seen in visions of the wise !." - Tamil Poem

Lead me from confrontation to wide openness.
Lead me to the place I never left,
Where there is peace, and peace

*note* What is interesting about this essay from Professor Richard Hayes( you can read his essays at http://www.unm.edu/~rhayes/download.html)are his final words quote"On a personal note, I honestly believe that thinking about Nagarjuna's texts
once saved my life.
Not an act of cessation/Not an arising/Not an interruption/Not a perpetuation/Not one thing/Not many things/Not a going forth/Not an arrival

I don't wish to go into details, because doing so would
require my saying things about the actions of identifiable people who are
still living. Suffice it to say that in 1971 I had just been dealt a very
difficult dose of dukkha that nearly overwhelmed me. All I could do was to
wander around for about two weeks just reciting this verse and thinking about
every phrase and reflecting on what the implications were. For days on end, I
just walked around chanting that verse.

Not an act of cessation/Not an arising/Not an interruption/Not a perpetuation/Not one thing/Not many things/Not a going forth/Not an arrival

Finally, one day I stood looking at my
reflection in a river, and it hit me very hard that all the pain I was feeling
was just a result of my taking myself too seriously, and that I had just spent
a whole year writing a thesis on Nagarjuna, whose message was "Don't take
yourself too seriously. And don't take me seriously either.
"

Not an act of cessation/Not an arising/Not an interruption/Not a perpetuation/Not one thing/Not many things/Not a going forth/Not an arrival

Somehow I
realized that I am no more real than the shimmering reflection in the water,
but also no less real. Within an instant, all the pain just vanished into
nowhere. It was just gone. Or perhaps it had never been there at all. I don't
know which. I see no point in thinking about it. But Nagarjuna has been my
favorite Buddhist playmate ever since.
"
!!!! Play is the only work possible for the
enlightened mind.

Not an act of cessation/Not an arising/Not an interruption/Not a perpetuation/Not one thing/Not many things/Not a going forth/Not an arrival....thus spokenth Nagarjuna(these are the 8 negations whom saved the life of the professor ..the thus spokenth was added by danny,since My Kundalini is fully opened,so I have the authority(powers) to say it.Of course you can challenge my powers,and say they are evil.
But of course,they are the powers of divine.

On Nagarjuna's Eight Negations(Not an act of cessation/Not an arising/Not an interruption/Not a perpetuation/Not one thing/Not many things/Not a going forth/Not an arrival)


I am not sure how much clarification I can give, but I can perhaps offer a few reflections on the famous opening verse of the MMK(Muula-madhyamaka-kaarikaa). Then perhaps I will tell you a personal story about what these verses mean to me. As far as I can recall, the first verse goes like this:

Not an act of cessation/Not an arising/Not an interruption/Not a perpetuation/Not one thing/Not many things/Not a going forth/Not an arrival

The marvelous broken foot(part 6)

Lead me from dreaming to waking.
Lead me from opacity to clarity.
Lead me from the complicated to the simple.
Lead me from the obscure to the obvious.
Lead me from intention to attention.
Lead me from what I'm told I am to what I see I am.
Lead me from confrontation to wide openness.
Lead me to the place I never left,
Where there is peace, and peace
- The Upanishads

*note* I find this video ridiculously funny mostly because I remember when not long ago I had that cast around my foot,and many..many times I hit it on the door..or fell on it,etc..hahaha..it's really painful.Anyway..what is interesting about this video is that ,,the cat,, never gives up.In other words,it is stuck on some consciousness pattern,and NOT EVEN PAIN can modify it's plans.

About pain now..sahaja yoga raises your kundalini first time you meditate.It is gentle,like a cool breeze you feel it.I am talking now about advanced healing..once you feel it,try to establish the circulation of it.In other words,what I did was similar to the old taoist microcirculations,with the difference that this is the real thing.
Not with breathing,not with mantras,not with concentration.
Is with attention,AND rotate the energy at the pain area,BEFORE you move it OUT of the area.

The results are immediate.

Be aware that while in hospital I couldn't bend over to my leg,(because would increase the pain,somehow..not because I couldn't reach my foot) to move the energy with hands(as I'd do when healing someone...as a matter of fact I moved my hands couple times over that fellow's broken arm,and the pain went away,but this is when you can't move at all)
Of course,I could write more about this,but maybe other time..kisses.

For that day the universe trembled in shock(part 1)

Lead me from dreaming to waking.
Lead me from opacity to clarity.
Lead me from the complicated to the simple.
Lead me from the obscure to the obvious.
Lead me from intention to attention.
Lead me from what I'm told I am to what I see I am.
Lead me from confrontation to wide openness.
Lead me to the place I never left,
Where there is peace, and peace
- The Upanishads

*note* I present here my personal experience,then the others....
But the day when I disappeared in light,and the forest was light...like a hologram..that day nobody can take away from me,because that was the day I've seen the truth.That I am an immortal spirit, experiencing itself.How do I know?..because after that I asked..with my light arms raised towards the sky...WHY I am here??

And a thunder voice answered from above,with the power of 1000 voices from above..

YOU ARE HERE TO EXPERIENCE!



Then I lowered my arms,and looked around..everything was me,the same light,but with rainbow like qualities...yet...it was the same light.
So I started to laugh so hard...that even the universe,and the forest,and the gods from heaven were amazed...
For that day the universe trembled in shock. For a mortal became immortal...and the universe was kissing me,and I was kissing it back...it was like kissing myself in the end.
That day I became a mahayogi,and when I go out..if it rains,I order it to stop.And it does,because I never carry umbrellas...and the rain knows better then make me wet. If it doesn't,then I know it wasn't ment to be stopped,that's all.
I am not fussy...if the mountain won't come to Danny..Danny will go to the mountain.
I'm just a mahayogi.
I am you.
I am the universe itself experiencing itself,like you..my good man(or woman).
Just like you.
The only difference between YOU and ME is that I know..that's all.

And of course the mahayogi powers,and ability to heal or to curse you..(note...the abilities to heal belong to the mind realm,as are the abilities to curse...what I ment is everybody does it,but they are not conscious about it...this is because the SOURCE is one,but to see itself the SOURCE splits in duality..the result of this tension is called consciouness,or the ability to see yourself..this is what I ment by,,I am like you,,..because I know the consciosness shapes the reality,and you don't KNOW that's why..again,while the SOURCE created the universe and the gods... it is always ONE..so it knows..when humans will understand this esoteric principle,they will tap on the unity of the SOURCE and be careful what they want,because both distruction and eternity are in the SOURCE..as I said long ago..the Universe is laghing at you,don't take it too seriously..but only when you know your inner SOURCE power,you can stop Hitler like wars,because unity will prevail..but humans can't imagine with no outside pain...remember the atomic bomb and the computer chips were invented due to outside pain of Hitler,where some wise people said,,ok...let's find a solution...this is not good,this Hitler gives us too much pain(and this is the role of the so-called devil)let's develop some new stuff...and as THEY WERE imagining,it happened..ponder ABOUT IT!!!!!....consciouness shapes the reality,but humans don't know that imagining is actually creation..PONDER!!!!) )well..nothing really..I'm just like you.

Kisses...I KNOW IT from experience,as that thunder voice told me.
Now I'll post some similar experiences so you'll know I'm not nuts...for the voice was mine whom talked...It was me all the way.
kisses

Larry Darrell tells of his Awakening from Maugham's novel The Razor's Edge:
:

"How grand the sight was that was displayed before me as the day broke in its splendour...I was ravished with the beauty of the world. I'd never known such exaltation and such a transcendent joy. I had a strange sensation, a tingling that arose in my feet and traveled up to my head, and I felt as though I were suddenly released from my body and as pure spirit partook of a loveliness I had never conceived. I had a sense that a knowledge more than human possessed me, so that everything that had been confused was clear and everything that had perplexed me was explained. I was so happy that it was pain and I struggled to release myself from it, for I felt that if it lasted a moment longer I should die; and yet it was such rapture that I was ready to die rather than forego it. How can I tell you what I felt? No words can tell the ecstasy of my bliss. When I came to myself I was exhausted and trembling" (see)


The Wanderling quotes his Zen mentor personally telling of the same Experience.

From ZEN ENLIGHTENMENT: The Path Unfolds:

"After a year of studying, meditating, and working at stoop labor in and around the fields near the ashrama, he took to taking long solitary pilgrimages into the mountains. One morning high in the mountains he was waiting in his usual spot to watch the sunrise. That morning when the very first glint of light pierced the very top edge of the distant mountains the rays fell across his eyes and shot straight through his pupils directly into his brain. His mind exploded. He actually thought he had physically blown to bits in a brilliant flash of light, that the whole back of his head had been blown off and opened to eternity. The initial sensations abated in a series of bodily contractions and convulsions, leaving him shaking and trembling. Rubbing his arms he could see he was still alive and whole. Never was he so exhilerated, like walking on air, his insides bursting with pleasure. He wanted to yell to the whole world how wonderful he felt, and although there wasn't a fellow human being around for miles to hear his exuberance, he ran down the mountain path toward the forester's hut where he stayed yelling and screaming like a crazy man."

Compare the above with the Awakening experience of the venerated
Indian holy man Swami Ramdas:

"And it came one morning apocalyptically - when, lo, the entire landscape changed: All was Rama (that is God, the Absolute), nothing but Rama - wherever Ramdas looked! Everything was ensouled by Rama - vivid, marvellous, rapturous - the trees, the shrubs, the ants, the cows, the cats, the dogs - even inanimate things pulsated with the marvellous presence of the one Rama. And Ramdas danced in joy, like a boy who, when given a lovely present, can't help breaking out into a dance. And so it was with Ramdas: he danced with joy and rushed at a tree in front, which he embraced because it was not a tree but Rama Himself! A man was passing by, Ramdas ran towards him and embraced him, calling out: 'Rama, O Rama!' The man got scared and bolted. But Ramdas gave him chase and dragged him back to his cave. The man noted that Ramdas had not a tooth in his head and so felt a little reassured: at least the loony would not be able to bite him!" (see)

Compare as well Carlos Castaneda writing of the shaman-sorcerer
Don Genaro Flores, colleague of Don Juan Matus:
"It was a powerful jolt ... never would I have imagined it was going to be like that ... after I grabbed it we began to spin. The ally made me twirl, but I didn’t let go. We spun through the air with such speed and force that I couldn’t see anymore. Everything was foggy. The spinning went on and on. Suddenly I felt that I was standing on the ground again. I looked at myself. The ally had not killed me. I was in one piece. I was myself! I knew that I had succeeded. At long last I had an ally. I jumped up and down with delight. What a feeling! What a feeling it was!"ever. When I awoke the sensations were gone."[1]

*note*this is about mantras..what are mantras?..what are spells?..why the westerners prefer complicated sanskrit words they have no idea what it means?..like the mantras from sahaja yoga,for example..Ohm Twameta etc..don't tell me they really understand the meaning.Of course they don't,but there is a meaning.I see this a real offense against the powerful magicians from the west,whom actually understood what are mantras(thought-forms) and how to use it(unlike the famous India civilization,which is full of mantras,but they are still as collective separated in casts and ,,untouchables,,..and they prefer bathing in Ganges instead of following the message of Crist whom said,,love thy neighbor,,.
I wonder HOW MANY HINDUS can properly understand the most powerful mantra of christianity which is the Lord prayer,recommended by Jessus himself.
Of course they don't like it,because it talks about loving the others as yourself.
And is more powerful then any mantra,since the power of a mantra is based on how many times it is repeated by the billions of people,so it creates a ,,ripping,, effect on the collective subconscious.
As a matter of fact this mantra,,Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious,,..is a powerful one.
It dissolves the mind,and when coupled with the joy(see the little guys dancing..that's power raising) and intention,it's as powerful as any.
This is from Marry Poppins, sung by Julie Andrews which of course,I still love her.
As for me..I always got the fat ones..
Last time in america I said this ,,supercalifragilistic..and got married to a fat one..what a ride it was indeed...I should've listened better to this song,and the warnings..

But better use it carefully
Or it may change your life

Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious!

Um diddle diddle diddle um diddle ay
Um diddle diddle diddle um diddle ay
Because I was afraid to speak
When I was just a lad
My father gave me nose a tweak
And told me I was bad
But then one day I learned a word
That saved me aching nose
The biggest word I ever heard
And this is how it goes:
Oh, supercalifragilisticexpialidocious!

Even though the sound of it
Is something quite atrocious
If you say it loud enough
You'll always sound precocious
Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious!

Um diddle diddle diddle um diddle ay
Um diddle diddle diddle um diddle ay
So when the cat has got your tongue
There's no need for dismay
Just summon up this word
And then you've got a lot to say
But better use it carefully
Or it may change your life
One night I said it to me girl
And now me girl's my wife!

She's supercalifragilisticexpialidocious!

The Mountain of Truth

A king once ruled over a nation of unhappy people. Wanting to help his subjects, the king asked a wise man, “Is there a way to relieve my people of their sorrows?”

“Yes, there is,” replied the wise man. “As you know, just outside of town there is a height known as the Mountain of Truth. Ask everyone to leave their troubles at the base of the mountain. That is all they need do.”

The King issued a joyous proclamation. Everyone was invited to bring his problems to the Mountain of Truth at once. Every kind of difficulty could be left there, including Sorrow, Conflict, Fear, Tension, Worry and Hostility.

At the end of twenty-four hours, the king was stunned. Out of his thousands of subjects, only ten had left their miseries at the mountain.

“This is incredible,” he told the wise man. “I don’t understand. Everyone assured me he wanted to get rid of unhappiness.”

The wise man nodded. “I knew this would happen, but also knew you would never believe me until you saw for yourself. You see, most people secretly love their suffering. Conflict and hostility provide excitement, a false feeling of life. Our first task is to show them the difference between artificial life and true life.”

....................

[THE GENERAL CONCLUSION]

Though lacking in power of expression, the author has here made a faithful record [of his own yogic experiences].

To one who has tasted honey, it is superfluous for those who have not tasted it to offer an explanation of its taste.1

Not knowing the One Mind, even pandits go astray, despite their cleverness in expounding the many different doctrinal systems.

To give ear to the reports of one who has neither approached nor seen the Buddha 2 even for a moment is like harkening to flying rumours concerning a distant place one has never visited.

Simultaneously with the knowing of the Mind comes release from good and evil.3

If the mind is not known, all practice of good and evil results in nothing more than Heaven, or Hell, or the Sangsara.4

As soon as one's mind is known to be of the Wisdom of the Voidness, concepts like good and evil karma cease to exist.5

Even as in the empty sky there seems to be, but is not, a fountain of water, so in the Voidness is neither good nor evil.6

When one's mind is thus known in its nakedness, this Doctrine of Seeing the Mind Naked, this Self-Liberation, is seen to be exceedingly profound.

Seek, therefore, thine own Wisdom within thee.7 It is the Vast Deep. 8

[THE FINAL GOOD WISHES]

All hail! This is the Knowing of the Mind, the Seeing of Reality, Self-Liberation.

For the sake of future generations who shall be born during the Age of Darkness,9 these essential aphorisms, necessarily brief and concise, herein set forth, were written down in accordance with Tantric teachings.10

Although taught during this present epoch, the text of them was hidden away amidst a cache of precious things.11

May this Book be read by those blessed devotees of the future.

[THE GURU'S FINAL CHARGE TO THE DISCIPLES]

Samayä, ; gya, gya, gya.

[Vast, vast, vast is Divine Wisdom.]12

[THE COLOPHON]

These teachings, called 'The Knowing of the Mind in Its Self-Identifying, Self-Realizing, Self-Liberating Reality', were formulated by Padma-Sambhava,13 the spiritually-endowed Teacher 14 from Urgyan.15

May they not wane until the whole Sangsara is emptied.16

[Here the text ends.]

Self-Salvation

“Therefore, O Ananda, be ye lamps unto yourselves.

Be ye a refuge to yourselves. Betake yourselves to no external refuge.

Hold fast to the Truth as a lamp. Hold fast to the Truth as a refuge.

Look not for refuge to any one besides yourselves.”

-The Buddha. The Book of the Great Decease, ii. 33

(after T. W. Rhys Davids' Translation).

1 There is an overabundance of men who are prepared to explain, most elaborately, all things in heaven and in earth without really knowing anything about them. They become gurus, collect disciples, and pose as `Masters of the Far East'. The Christ called them blind leaders of the blind, for they mislead no one save the blind. To one who has himself realized Truth, their explanations of it are quite unnecessary.

2 Or, in a freer translation, the ‘Buddha within'.

3 Such a release is from all other dualities as well, the duality of good and evil being here regarded as the root duality whence all other dualities spring, even the ultimate duality, Nirvana and the Sangsara.

4 So long as man is fettered to appearances, to dualism, his thoughts and actions result in nothing more than after-death states of heavenly happiness or hellish miseries to be followed repeatedly by return to the human state. Thus he remains bound to the ever-revolving Wheel of the Sangsara.

5 This aphorism succintly summarizes the yogic doctrine of concepts expounded above.

6 The fountain refers to rain, which has its ultimate source in the Great Waters. Similarly, good and evil seem to be other than they are they, like all dualities, all concepts of the Sangsaric mind, are inconceivable apart from their ultimate source in the One Mind. In the Voidness of the One Mind they cease to exist, as do all other dualities; for there, as in the Great Waters, is undifferentiated homogeneity.

7 This aphorism may be otherwise phrased : ‘Seek, therefore, this Wisdom within thine own mind' or, more literally, ‘Therefore, thine own Wisdom, this [knowing of] mind, seek ye'.

8 Text : Zab-rgya (pron. Zab-gya): Zab = Deep, gya = vast. This abbreviated expression may be rendered in fuller form as, Deep and vast is Divine Wisdom [or this Doctrine] ' : or more concisely, 'It is the Vast Deep '.

9 Text : snyigs-mahi = snyigs-mahi-dus (pron. nyig-mai-dii), the ‘degenerate age of evil' now prevailing : Skt. Kali-Yuga, ' Black [or Dark, or Iron] Age'.

10 Text Crgyud-/une(pron. gyiid-lung), which may be rendered either as ‘Tantric prophecy ' or as ‘traditional precept'. We may, therefore, otherwise render the phrase as 'in accordance with Tantric [or traditional] teachings'.

11 This treatise, like the whole of the Bardo Thödol Cycle, was recovered, when the time was ripe, by the tertOns, or Tibetan takers-out of hidden texts, all more or less of an occult or esoteric character. (See The Tibetan Book of the Dead, pp. 75-77.)

12 Cf. pp. 2024, 2385, along with pp. 15-20 of the General Introduction.

13 Text : Pad-ma-Oyung-gnas (pron. Pe-ma Jung-nè: Skt. Padma-Kiira), the ordinary Tibetan name of the Great Master of the Tantric occult sciences, popularly known outside of Tibet as Padma-Sambhava. As Sarat Chandra Da' s, in the Tibetan-English Dictionary (Calcutta, 1902, p. 779), has written: Throughout Tibet, Padma Jungnas may be asserted to be more popular than Gautama the Buddha and [where he is known] as Guru Padma, Urgyan Padma, and LopOn Harnkara, his votaries are full of belief in his present might and powers of assistance.' Among the Great Guru's many names there are two others much used by Tibetans: Guru Rinpoch'e (' Precious Guru ') and Urgyän Rinpoch'e (` Precious One of Urgyan'). They also call him simply `Lo-ion', the Tibetan equivalent of the Sanskrit 'Guru', and of the English 'Teacher', or, 'Spiritual Preceptor'. Our Epitome of his Biography gives a number of other names, mostly initiatory.

14 Text : mkhan-po (pron. khan-po), a Tibetan appellation suggesting honour and prestige, applicable to a professor employed to teach, or to the head of a monastery, and, in general, to spiritually-endowed men of learning. In Tibet, the head of a particular college attached to a monastery, high priests who give vows to the junior or inferior lamas, and professors of sacred literature, are called mkhan-po; also learned men, who as such are endowed with spiritual gifts [inherited] from their spiritual ancestors, are called mkhan-po. Again, learned men such as are sent to China are also styled mkhan-po.' (Cf. S. C. Das, op. cit., p. 179.)

15 Text: O-gyan (pron. U-gyän), ordinarily transliterated into English as Urgyän, the country of Odiyama, sometimes, but probably incorrectly, taken to be (as in the Tibetan Lam-yig) the modern Gaznee, in Cabul. (See S. C. Das, op. cit., p. 1352.)
