Awareness Itself
by
Ajaan Fuang Jotiko
compiled and Translated by
Thanissaro Bhikkhu (Geoffrey DeGraff)
§ "Whatever you experience, simply be aware of it. You don't have to take after it. The primal heart has no characteristics. It's aware of everything. But as soon as things make contact, within or without, they cause a lapse in mindfulness, so that we let go of awareness, forget awareness in and of itself, and take on all the characteristics of the things that come later. Then we act out in line with them — becoming happy, sad or whatever. The reason we're this way is because we take conventional truths and latch on to them tight. If we don't want to be under their influence, we'll have to stay with primal awareness at all times. This requires a great deal of mindfulness."


§ One of Ajaan Fuang's students was feeling mistreated by the world, and so went to him for consolation. He told her, "What's there to feel mistreated about? You're the one that's swayed under the events that have hit you, that's all. Contemplate what's happening and you'll see that the mind is something separate. Events come passing in and then go passing by. So why be influenced by them? Keep your mind right at the simple awareness that these things come and soon they'll be gone, so why follow them?"


§ "What, really, is yours? When you die, you won't be able to take any of these things with you, so why waste time wanting anything? There's nothing you have to want at all. Make your mind quiet. Make it one. You don't have to concern yourself with your own attainments or those of other people. Simply be aware. That's enough."


§ "Whenever anything hits you, let it go only as far as 'aware'. Don't let it go all the way into the heart."


§ "All you need to do is keep your sense of simple awareness solid and strong, and nothing will be able to overwhelm you."


§ "Stay with awareness itself at all times — except when you sleep. The minute you wake up, stay right at awareness, and it won't be long before discernment arises."


§ One woman who practiced meditation with Ajaan Fuang came to feel that she had split into two people: one person acting, and one watching. She felt this way both while sitting in meditation and while she wasn't — to the point where she didn't feel like sitting in meditation at all, because she felt that sitting and not sitting were in no way different. She asked him about this, and he told her, "If you don't want to, you don't have to sit. Just keep this sense of 'the watcher' going at all times. Sitting with your eyes closed is simply an external convention. Just keep watching. When the mind and the body become separate like this, the body can't press on the mind. If the body presses on the mind, the mind will have to be under the influence of what goes on in the body."


§ "Right awareness has to be paired with the breath."


§ "To be aware means to be aware as soon as defilement arises, to see defilement and not act under its power."


§ "There's no past here, and no future, only the present. No man, no woman, no sign of any kind at all. There's nothing, not even self. What self there is, is only in a conventional sense."


§ "Once awareness is solid, you have to get above and beyond it."


§ In 1978, one of Ajaan Fuang's students had to move to Hong Kong, and so he set up a small meditation center there. In one of his letters he asked Ajaan Fuang to write out a short outline of the main points of the practice, and this was the answer he received:


"Focus on all six of the elements: earth, water, wind, fire, space, and consciousness. When you're acquainted with each of them, meld them into one, and focus on them until they grow stable and strong. Your energy will gather together until both the body and the mind feel full. When the physical elements are balanced and in harmony, they'll grow full, and the mind will let go of them on its own and turn to oneness. The elements will be one, the mind will be one. So now you turn your attention to the mind. Focus on the mind until you become fully aware of it. Then let go of that awareness, together with whatever knowledge you've gained, and there won't be anything left. Let go even of the events in the present that you're aware of. That's when intuitive discernment will arise, and meditation comes to an end."


§ One night Ajaan Fuang took a group of his students up to sit in meditation at the chedi on top of the hill in Wat Dhammasathit. Looking out to the south, in the inky darkness, they could see the bright lights of the fishing boats far out at sea. He commented, "When you're up on a high place like this, you can see everything." For one woman listening, this had special meaning, because she knew he wasn't referring just to the view from the hill.

You can see my heart beating

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* lovely video from Rihanna quote"Robyn Rihanna Fenty (born February 20, 1988), better known as Rihanna (pronounced /riˈænə/), is a Barbadian island(not Barbarian) R&B recording artist, songwriter and model." ....beautiful song the Russian Roulette.....the lyrics are here..
Take a breath, take it deep
Calm yourself, he says to me
If you play, you play for keeps
Take a gun, and count to three
I'm sweating now, moving slow
No time to think, my turn to go

[Chorus]
And you can see my heart beating
You can see it through my chest
And I'm terrified but I'm not leaving
Know that I must must pass this test
So just pull the trigger

Say a prayer to yourself
He says close your eyes
Sometimes it helps
And then I get a scary thought
That he's here means he's never lost

(Chorus)
And you can see my heart beating
You can see it through my chest
And I'm terrified but I'm not leaving
Know that I must must pass this test
So just pull the trigger

As my life flashes before my eyes
I'm wondering will I ever see another sunrise?
So many won't get the chance to say goodbye
But it's too late too pick up the value of my life...
So I composed this never heard stanza for her
Behold
Even though I can see your heart beating
Unless you can see it too..
All I can do is love you forever
But if you can see it too..
You become not only the love
But the seeing also...
Ponder,grasshoppers...
Thus spokenth the mahayogi!
Kisses:)

I ain't had no lovin' since April, January, June, or July..

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.

*note* lovely song from Ruth Etting quote" Shine On, Harvest Moon
(from Ziegfeld Follies of 1931)
Words and music by Nora Bayes and Jack Norworth
Ruth Etting, vocal. Recorded July 28, 1931, in New York. Originally issued on Perfect 12737.

This song was first introduced by Nora Bayes and songwriter-husband, Jack Norworth in the Ziegfeld Follies of 1908. Ruth Etting's performance of the song in the Ziegfield Follies of 1931 was a tribute to Nora Bayes. The 1931 production of the Follies was the last to be produced under the direction Florenz Ziegfeld, Jr.; he died shortly thereafter in 1932. It's interesting to note that Nora Bayes recorded this song for Victor in 1910 but it was never released.

"Oh, shine on, shine on,
harvest moon up in the sky,
I ain't had no lovin'
since April, January, June, or July.
Snow time ain't no time
to stay outdoors and spoon,
So shine on, shine on, harvest moon,
For me and my gal."

FULL HARVEST MOON
Traditionally, this designation goes to the full moon that occurs closest to the Autumnal (fall) Equinox. The Harvest Moon usually comes in September, but this year (2009) it will fall on Sunday, 4 October. At the peak of the harvest, farmers can work into the night by the light of this moon. Usually the full Moon rises an average of 50 minutes later each night, but for the few nights around the Harvest Moon, the moon seems to rise at nearly the same time each night: just 25 to 30 minutes later across the U.S., and only 10 to 20 minutes later for much of Canada and Europe. Corn, pumpkins, squash, beans, and wild rice — the chief Indian staples — are now ready for gathering."
So I composed this never heard stanza,and added the magnificent Laurel & Hardy "Shine On Harvest Moon" interpretation (1939)in a classic musical number from "The Flying Deuces".
Behold
The harvest moon
Was always in your heart
Ready for harvesting
But unless you can dance
All you'll have will be
The mighty finger muscle
Pointing to the moon out there
When all the time the moon was in yourself
Ready to shine,and harvest you.
Thus spokenth the mahayogi!
kisses to grasshoppers:)

I'm your Venus..your desire (The Radiance Sutras)

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* shakti as Shocking Blue band quote"Shocking Blue was a Dutch rock band from The Hague, the Netherlands, formed in 1967. Their biggest hit, "Venus," went to #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 in February 1970, and the band had sold 13.5 million discs by 1973, but the group disbanded in 1974.."
The lyrics are..

Venus
Goddess on the mountain top
Burning like a silver flame
The summit of beauty and love
And Venus was her name
She's got it
Yeah, baby, she's got it
I'm your Venus, I'm your fire
At your desire
Well, I'm your Venus, I'm your fire
At your desire
Her weapons were her crystal eyes
Making every man a man
Black as the dark night she was
Got what no-one else had
Wa!
She's got it
Yeah, baby, she's got it
I'm your Venus, I'm your fire
At your desire
Well, I'm your Venus, I'm your fire
At your desire
Goddess on the mountain top
Burning like a silver flame
The summit of beauty and love
And Venus was her name
She's got it
Yeah, baby, she's got it
I'm your Venus, I'm your fire
At your desire
Well, I'm your Venus, I'm your fire
At your desire....

So I wrote this never heard stanza..
Behold
The Shiva's desire is Venus,the shakti
Even though you are my fire
I am the witness of myself
Creating the fire to know myself
Don't push it..Venus..
With one flick of my finger
I can reduce the whole universe to dust
You are me,but I am not you
And never was...
But I created you,because I need you..just don't get too smart
And remember you are me...
But I am not you.
Thus spokenth the mahayogi!

The Radiance Sutras


One day The Goddess sang to her lover Bhairava,


Beloved and radiant Lord of the space before birth,
Revealer of essence,
Slayer of the ignorance that binds us,


You, who in play have created this universe
and permeated all forms in it with never-ending truth.
I have been wondering . . .


I have been listening to the songs of creation,
I have heard the sacred sutras being sung,
and yet still I am curious.


What is this delight-filled universe
into which we find ourselves born?


What is this mysterious awareness shimmering
everywhere within it?


What are these instinctive energies
that undulate through our bodies,
moving us into action?


And this “matter” out of which our forms are made -
What are these dancing particles of condensed radiance,
Are they an illusionist's projection?


What is this power we call Life,
appearing as the play of flesh and breath?
How may I know this mystery and enter it more deeply?
pps..kripto answers..
watch this video,Venus my beloved...from http://kriptodanny.blogspot.com/2009/10/life-is-but-dream.html


But indeed,as you said...you are my true desire,as power of manifestation...yet,you are a shadow of me,Venus..even so you sing,,Venus
Goddess on the mountain top
Burning like a silver flame
The summit of beauty and love
And Venus was her name
She's got it
Yeah, baby, she's got it
I'm your Venus, I'm your fire
At your desire
Well, I'm your Venus, I'm your fire
At your desire
Her weapons were her crystal eyes
Making every man a man
Black as the dark night she was
Got what no-one else had
Wa!
She's got it
Yeah, baby, she's got it
I'm your Venus, I'm your fire
At your desire
Well, I'm your Venus, I'm your fire
At your desire
Goddess on the mountain top
Burning like a silver flame..
..
All the powers you have are from me..my beloved...kisses,said Shiva

Gustav Jung said that oracle's mechanism is based on synchronicity...

*note*.nice online oracle..(careful to bookmark it,to get a new reading..)be aware that the oracles like I Ching just detect the potential thought forms acting in the cause/affect realm,not those in the magik realm(transformation or self-realization..it presents the things as they are if YOU don't do anything about it)..in other words,you can always change the outcome.
It presents how things are in the present...and outcome.

I-ching is the chinese style Tarot cards(but without western symbolism,and it's about clear advise of the situation as it appears..not non-sense..I ching reads your subconscious thought patterns),or the renowned ,,beans throw,, from the famous transylvanian vampiric tradition..where the old women throw some beans on the ground..look at them and tell you are ok if you give them 2 dollars..or the gypsy style(from India..gypsies are from India,they migrated in europe like fruitflies, but kept their foul,low magik practices) of cursing if you don't pay them.Have no fear about these things..trust that you decide IN THE END(actually you don't,but if you keep silent ,you will purify the cause/affect then decide..but this is a complicated talk,I'll explain other time..in short..is about rezonance and syncronicity..the key is to keep silent,then decide...you decide ALWAYS..but you don't KNOW it...remember that,and read my mahayogi lips..repeat again,,you always decide,but you don't know it..if you know it,then act,don't be like you don't know the secret..you know it now,but you refuse to act on it..that is what separates yogis from mahayogis like me..I act on it..see?..that is true mastery,not talking..I-ching at least just reads your thought patterns and present them to you as they are..and is free,as is my own,,Random Post oracle..the only problem is acting on the advise...see?..grasshoppers?)

One must understand how it works..as Gustav says ..quote"
In his introduction of the English version of I Ching, Jung admits having practiced the oracle 30 years before meeting Richard Wilhelm, probably the most important translator to a western language of the Book. Jung claims to have used the book for the exploration of the unconscious.


Later on, his disciples used at length the oracle in psychotherapy. To give only one example: when a patient consulted the book with respect to his intent of having a relationship with a woman to whom he had ambivalent feelings, the oracle responded with Hexagram no. 44 - Coming to Meet - which states exactly: One should not marry such a maiden. What surprises one is, of course, the fact that the oracle answered with a hexagram that grasps the patient's present situation.


How it is possible that a book older then 5.000 years to be used in psychic treatment is argued by Jung who states that oracle's mechanism is based on synchronicity.(end quote)..now I talk,the kripto.


As a variant of this,I put a ,,ask a question,,.on the right side of my blog,where IF YOU ASK 3 TIMES THE QUESTION and then press,,RANDOM POST,, you WILL get your present situation and solution.
THIS is my MAHAYOGI gift to you..ask,then press RANDOM answer...sometimes is better then I-ching..trust me..now love my wisdom muscles..for I love you already pilgrims grasshoppers reading my blog..kisses:)
You got a smile so bright..kripto
You know, you could've been a candle
I'm holding you so tight..kripto
You know, you could've been a handle

You know, you could've been a broom

The Book of Changes, I Ching (Wade-Giles), "Yì Jīng" (Pinyin), or Classic of Changes; also called Zhouyi, is one of the oldest of the Chinese classic texts.[1] The book contains a divination system comparable to Western geomancy or the West African Ifá system. In Western cultures and modern East Asia, it is still widely used for this purpose.

The standard text originated from the ancient text (古文經) transmitted by Fei Zhi (费直, c50 BC -AD 10) of the Han Dynasty. During the Han Dynasty this version competed with the bowdlerised new text (今文經) version transmitted by Tian He at the beginning of the Western Han. However, by the time of the Tang Dynasty the ancient text version, which had survived Qin’s book-burning by being preserved amongst the peasantry, became the accepted norm among Chinese scholars.

The earliest extant version of the text, written on bamboo slips, albeit incomplete, is the Chujian Zhouyi, and dates to the latter half of the Warring States period (mid 4th to early 3rd century BC), and certainly cannot be later than 223 BC, when Chu was conquered by Qin. It is essentially the same as the standard text, except for a few significant variations.



During the Warring States period, the text was re-interpreted as a system of cosmology and philosophy that subsequently became intrinsic to Chinese culture. It centred on the ideas of the dynamic balance of opposites, the evolution of events as a process, and acceptance of the inevitability of change.
Yin and yang, while common expressions associated with many schools of classical Chinese culture, are especially associated with the Taoists.

Another view holds that the Book of Changes is primarily a Confucianist ethical or philosophical document. This view is based upon the following:

* The Wings or Appendices are attributed to Confucius.
* The study of the Book of Changes was required as part of the Civil Service Exams in the period that these exams only studied Confucianist texts.
* It is one of the Five Confucian Classics.
* It does not appear in any surviving editions of the Daozang.
* The major commentaries were written by Confucianists, or Neo-Confucianists.
* Taoist scripture avoids, even mocks, attempts at categorizing the world's myriad phenomena and forming a static philosophy. However, Daoist ritual frequently uses the eight trigrams, and they are fundamental for alchemical practice, both internal and external.

Both views may be seen to show that the Book of Changes was at the heart of Chinese thought, serving as a common ground for the Confucian and Taoist schools. Partly forgotten due to the rise of Chinese Buddhism during the Tang dynasty, the Book of Changes returned to the attention of scholars during the Song dynasty. This was concomitant with the reassessment of Confucianism by Confucians in the light of Taoist and Buddhist metaphysics, and is known in the West as Neo-Confucianism. The book, unquestionably an ancient Chinese scripture, helped Song Confucian thinkers to synthesize Buddhist and Taoist cosmologies with Confucian and Mencian ethics. The end product was a new cosmogony that could be linked to the so-called "lost Tao" of Confucius and Mencius.

In China the Book of Changes had two distinct functions. The first was as a compendium and classic of ancient cosmic principles. The second function was that of divination text. As a divination text the world of the Book of Changes was that of the marketplace fortune teller and roadside oracle. These individuals served the illiterate peasantry. The educated Confucian elite in China were of an entirely different disposition. The future results of our actions were a function of our personal virtues. The Confucian literati actually had little use for the Book of Changes as a work of divination. In the collected works of the countless educated literati of ancient China there are actually few references to the Book of Changes as a divination text. Any eyewitness account of traditional Chinese society, such as S. Wells Williams The Middle Kingdom, and many others, can clarify this very basic distinction. Williams tells us of the Book of Changes, "The hundred of fortune- tellers seen in the streets of Chinese towns, whose answers to their perplexed customers are more or less founded on these cabala, indicate their influence among the illiterate; while among scholars, who have long since conceded all divination to be vain..". (The Middle Kingdom, vol. 1, p. 632)

When he taught his students, he said very little..

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 like this guy(Phra Ajaan Sao Kantasilo 1861-1941..some thailand forest monk)..said very little..wise man indeed.He knew that if he'd tried to explain,people would crucify him like Jesus,so he kept quiet,and enjoyed the good life.Only morons like me(and you..reader) try to explain people the truth.
I remember once I had a reading from some gypsy woman...she looked into my palm,bowed to me,and told me..stop telling people the truth..they'll not understand,,.
I was young back then..so I paid her couple dollars and never thought about it.
But I like this guy..
Kisses to him that keeps quiet....for the bodhisattvas like me are cursed to suffer for others ..so the others might evolve in this realm.
The only way they can know your bliss is by practicing,not reading your wisdom words.
This stuff is beyond reading or even life itself..PONDER!!!
They refuse that..nobody wants to meditate the right way.They imagine,project,read from this and that...then they think they've got it,and are buddhas.
Kisses to them..and whatever they do..I hope I'll grow a wisdom muscle and stop caring so much for them..and let them enjoy their secret suffering,when they stop pretending....that's all they will have..TRUST ME!!

Ajaan Sao's Teaching
A Reminiscence of Phra Ajaan Sao Kantasilo
transcribed from a talk by
Phra Ajaan Phut Thaniyo
translated from the Thai by
Thanissaro Bhikkhu
In our day and age, the practice of going into the forest to meditate and follow the ascetic dhutanga practices began with Phra Ajaan Sao Kantasilo, the teacher of Phra Ajaan Mun and, by extension, Phra Ajaan Singh and Phra Ajaan Lee. Phra Ajaan Sao was inclined to be, not a preacher or a speaker, but a doer. When he taught his students, he said very little. And those who studied directly under him are now elders who speak very little, who rarely preach, having picked up the habit from their teacher. Thus, as Phra Ajaan Sao was not a preacher, I would like to tell you a little of the way in which he taught meditation.


How did Phra Ajaan Sao teach? If it so happened that someone came to him, saying, "Ajaan, sir, I want to practice meditation. How should I go about it?" he would answer, "Meditate on the word 'Buddho.'"


If the person asked, "What does 'Buddho' mean?" Ajaan Sao would answer, "Don't ask."


"What will happen after I've meditated on 'Buddho'?"


"Don't ask. Your only duty is simply to repeat the word 'Buddho' over and over in your mind."


That's how he taught: no long, drawn-out explanations.


Now, if the student was sincere in putting the Ajaan's instructions into practice and was persistent in practicing the repetition, if his mind then became calm and bright from entering into concentration, he would come and ask Ajaan Sao: "When meditating on 'Buddho' my state of mind becomes such-and-such. What should I do now?" If it was right, Ajaan Sao would say, "Keep on meditating." If not, he would say, "You have to do such-and-such. What you're doing isn't right."


For example, once when I was his attendant novice, a senior monk of the Mahanikaya sect came and placed himself under his direction as a beginning student in meditation. Ajaan Sao taught him to meditate on "Buddho." Now, when the monk settled down on "Buddho," his mind became calm and, once it was calm, bright. And then he stopped repeating "Buddho." At this point, his mind was simply blank. Afterwards, he sent his attention out, following the brightness, and a number of visions began to arise: spirits of the dead, hungry ghosts, divine beings, people, animals, mountains, forests... Sometimes it seemed as if he, or rather, his mind, left his body and went wandering through the forest and wilderness, seeing the various things mentioned above. Afterwards, he went and told Ajaan Sao, "When I meditated down to the point were the mind became calm and bright, it then went out, following the bright light. Visions of ghosts, divine beings, people, and animals appeared. Sometimes it seemed as if I went out following the visions."


As soon as Ajaan Sao heard this, he said, "This isn't right. For the mind to go knowing and seeing outside isn't right. You have to make it know inside."


The monk then asked, "How should I go about making it know inside?"


Phra Ajaan Sao answered, "When the mind is in a bright state like that, when it has forgotten or abandoned its repetition and is simply sitting empty and still, look for the breath. If the sensation of the breath appears in your awareness, focus on the breath as your object and then simply keep track of it, following it inward until the mind becomes even calmer and brighter."


And so the monk followed the Ajaan's instructions until finally the mind settled down in threshold concentration (upacara samadhi), following which the breath became more and more refined, ultimately to the point where it disappeared. His sensation of having a body also disappeared, leaving just the state in which the mind was sitting absolutely still, a state of awareness itself standing out clear, with no sense of going forward or back, no sense of where the mind was, because at that moment there was just the mind, all on its own. At this point, the monk came again to ask, "After my mind has become calm and bright, and I fix my attention on the breath and follow the breath inward until it reaches a state of being absolutely quiet and still — so still that nothing is left, the breath doesn't appear, the sense of having a body vanishes, only the mind stands out, brilliant and still: When it's like this, is it right or wrong?"


"Whether it's right or wrong," the Ajaan answered, "take that as your standard. Make an effort to be able to do this as often as possible, and only when you're skilled at it should you come and see me again."


So the monk followed the Ajaan's instructions and later was able to make his mind still to the point that there was no sense of having a body and the breath disappeared more and more often. He became more and more skilled, and his mind became more and more firm. Eventually, after he had been making his mind still very frequently — because as a rule, there's the principle that virtue develops concentration, concentration develops discernment, discernment develops the mind — when his concentration became powerful and strong, it gave rise to abhiñña — 
heightened knowledge and true insight. Knowledge of what? Knowledge of the true nature of the mind, that is, knowing the states of the mind as they occur in the present. Or so he said.

heightened knowledge and true insight. Knowledge of what? Knowledge of the true nature of the mind, that is, knowing the states of the mind as they occur in the present. Or so he said.
After he had left this level of concentration and came to see Ajaan Sao, he was told, "This level of concentration is fixed penetration (appana samadhi). You can rest assured that in this level of concentration there is no insight or knowledge of anything at all. There's only the brightness and the stillness. If the mind is forever in that state, it will be stuck simply on that level of stillness. So once you've made the mind still like this, watch for the interval where it begins to stir out of its concentration. As soon as the mind has a sense that it's beginning to take up an object — no matter what object may appear first — focus on the act of taking up an object. That's what you should examine."


The monk followed the Ajaan's instructions and afterwards he was able to make fair progress in the level of his mind.


This is one instance of how Phra Ajaan Sao taught his pupils — teaching just a little at a time, giving only the very heart of the practice, almost as if he would say, "Do this, and this, and this," with no explanations at all. Sometimes I would wonder about his way of teaching. That is, I would compare it with books I had read or with the Dhamma-talks I heard given by other teachers. For example, Phra Ajaan Singh wrote a small handbook for the practice of meditation, entitled, Taking the Triple Refuge and the Techniques of Meditation, and in it he said that in practicing meditation you must, before all else, sit with your body straight and establish mindfulness directly in front of you. That's how he put it, but not how Ajaan Sao would put it. Still, the principles they taught were one and the same, the only difference being that Ajaan Sao was not a preacher, and so didn't make use of a lot of rhetoric.


As he explained to me: "When we make up our mind to repeat 'Buddho,' the act of making up the mind is in itself the act of establishing mindfulness. When we keep thinking 'Buddho' and are not willing to let the mind slip away from 'Buddho,' our mindfulness and alertness are already healthy and strong, always watching over the mind to keep it with 'Buddho.' As soon as our attention slips away, so that we forget to think 'Buddho' and go thinking of something else, it's a sign that there's a lapse in our mindfulness. But if we can keep our mindfulness under control and can think 'Buddho, Buddho' continuously, with no gaps, our mindfulness is already strong, so there's no need to go 'establishing mindfulness' anywhere. To think of an object so that it is coupled with the mind is, in and of itself, the act of getting mindfulness established." That was how he explained it to me.


This was one instance of how I saw and heard Phra Ajaan Sao teaching meditation, and should be enough to serve us all as food for thought.

Tell me more..like does he have a car:)

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* summer loving from the best..quote"Summer loving had me a blast
Summer loving happened so fast
I met a girl crazy for me
Met a boy cute as can be
Summer days drifting away to oh oh the summer nights

Tell me more, tell me more
Did you get very far
Tell me more, tell me more
Like does he have a car "
I am always amazed of the sheer clarity of the old songs..they say it clearly..the boys are looking for some naked action,while the girls are looking for some nice car...this is evolution..a woman must get the one whom can provide for their kids,and the man is wired visually like John Travolta(unless he is some homosexual swami)...what is the issue here?
The only problem is nobody tries to understand the source of those.
Most people are like flies in the wind,really..never for one second questioning their desires.
Where they arise from?
Where is the mastery?
Where is the progress,even pigs copulate,but at least the pigs don't call it a ,,love story,,and sing songs about summer nights,when they have managed to screw some pig females and inseminate them with their sperms...they are honest..but not humans...show me one honest human,and I'll bow to it.
But I tell you this..unless you find the watcher in you,and become it..you won't be able to understand my new stanza..and unless you meditate you have zero chances.
Behold
The pig is in you
The summer nights are in you
As the sun sets,so will you
Like a pig
Only bones will remain of you
And forget whom was
The unborn pig
Watching you trying to survive
To the grave
You get what you want
As for me,the mahayogi
I choose my true self
But if you have a car(as the song says)
I'll marry you:)
Thus spokenth the mahayogi!

TNT..watch me explode:)

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* never understood these rock guys(acdc)...what they mean by ,,
'Cause I'm T.N.T. I'm dynamite
T.N.T. and I'll win the fight
T.N.T. I'm a power load
T.N.T. watch me explode
I'm dirty, mean and mighty unclean
I'm a wanted man
Public enemy number one
Understand
So lock up your daughter
Lock up your wife
Lock up your back door
And run for your life
The man is back in town
Don't you mess me 'round ???
However..over 70,000 people(plus many thousands outside..) enjoyed their wisdom of TNT(watch me explode)in front of the romanian parlament building

last sunday..why is that?..I never liked industrial rock..but looks like some people do.

quote"Traffic restrictionstraffic restrictions have been put in place around the People's Palace, starting today (Thurs) until next Tuesday, in preparation for the legendary rock band AC/Dc concert, scheduled for Sunday.
Traffic police announced restrictions at the Piata Constitutiei, Bulevardul Libertatii, Bulevardul Unirii, Calea 13 Septembrie and Bulevardul Naţiunile Unite.
Fans coming to the concert on Sunday night are advised to use public transport, as no parking lots will be available in the Piata Constitutiei area.
Around 60,000 people are expected to arrive at the first concert AC/DC is performing in Bucharest.
"(and about 100,000 were there)
Just explode and leave me alone,said the mahayogi to the TNT acdc rock punks..just leave me alone..I'll choose Mozart any day instead.
However..this song is cool,so I'll post it..kisses:)but be aware,once you explode,you can't be immortal..maybe the muslims should sing this song while they blow themselves up in the name of Allah,of course..killing women and children ...the holy jihad indeed...acdc just paved the way.The ONLY JIHAD is INSIDE yourself..not outside.
Funny those suicide bombers really believe they will go to heaven.
I'm telling you where they go..I am a mahayogi,I know.
Their mind will be stuck to the astral level,where they can feel ALL THE PAIN they inflicted by being the TNT..and also,they will reincarnate in order to KNOW that all LIFE is one,and to blow yourself in TNT acdc style is NOT the solution..and the pain from knowing you have done it,and yet BE aware of it is formidable...that is hell,indeed..better is sleep I say..but after death..even sleep will be taken away from them...their own mind-forms will project,as real as life...and the knowing of being FORCED to reincarnate AND loose all your memories is the WORST,and is agonizing that you know you'll have to learn to walk again..PONDER!!! ..this is about your soul!!
Ponder,grasshoppers...for I will die soon,and will be no-one to give you wisdom..
Remember my words of the wisdom muscle..

You must become,not only do...

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* Nice song..let me tell you the lyrics..on a special never heard stanza:)
Behold
The seaweed is always greener
In kriptodanny's blog
His wisdom is always finer
Sings like a fish,and bites like a frog..
In somebody else’s lake
You dream about going up there
But that is a big mistake.


You must become,not only do
You must awake..that is the clue
Under the sea..there is a kripto
In this and that..and in you too.


Kripto is always here..that is because he always was..
Nothing to do about,but..
Believe in him and yourself, because..
He is the mahayogi
Under the sea for all
Just grab his wisdom muscle
And make it your own..
And do it before the dawn.


Just look at the world around you
Right here on the ocean floor
Such wonderful things surround you
What more is you lookin’ for?


Under the sea..there is kriptoooo..
Under the sea..
Darlin’, it’s better down where it’s wetter
Take it ,admit..yoooo-hooooo!!
Up on the shore they work all day
Out in the sun they slave away
While we devotin’ full time to floatin’
While kripto always shines I say..


Down here all the fish is happy
There is the one kripto's goal..
As off through the waves they roll
He smiles and forgives you all..
That's what the kriptos are for..
You must become,not only do
You must awake..that is the clue
Under the sea..there is a kripto
In this and that..and in you too.
Thus spokenth the mahayogi!

If I bow to a Buddha,... the Buddha won't know...

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* this is his pic..see his wisdom on his forehead? Yuan Mei

What Mei Yuan means when he wrote this poem,,that if he bows to a Buddha..the Buddha won't know??..Mei Yuan(1716 - 1798)spoke the truth...because bowing to a Buddha would be bowing to your true self,if you're not yet realized..but bowing to a monk might make him happy,and start the path..A Buddha happiness doesn't depend on your bowing,or slapping him in the nose.This is what he meant..
 I quote about his life..
Yuan Mei was born in Hangchow, Chekiang during the Qing dynasty. As a boy, he was a talented student who earned his basic degree at the age of eleven. He received the highest academic degree at 23 and then went to advanced studies. But Yuan Mei failed in his studies of the Manchu language, which limited his future government career.

Like many of the great Chinese poets, Yuan Mei exhibited many talents, working as a government official, teacher, writer, and painter.

He eventually left public office and retired with his family to a private estate named "The Garden of Contentment." In addition to teaching, he made a generous living writing funerary inscriptions. Among other things, he also collected local ghost stories and published them. And he was an advocate of women's education.

He traveled quite a bit and soon gained the reputation as the pre-eminent poet of his time. His poetry is deeply engaged with Chan (Zen) and Taoist themes of presence, meditation, and the natural world. As biographer Arthur Whaley notes, Yuan Mei's poetry "even at its lightest always had an undertone of deep feeling and at its saddest may at any moment light a sudden spark of fun."

So I composed this never heard stanza:)
Behold
You might bow to a Buddha
And forget your true nature,due to your loving of the external bowing..
Bow to yourself,Mei Yuan meant.
But if you bow to a monk
He might ponder,and gain wisdom.
And you may slap a Buddha in the nose
And in turn,he'll turn the other nose
As Jesus turning the other cheek
But there is only one nose..
And there are only 2 cheeks,and lots of slapping
But ONLY one nose.
Ponder about that,grasshoppers..
..kisses:)
Thus spokenth the mahayogi.

When I meet a monk,

When I see a Buddha,
I don't.

If I bow to a Buddha,
the Buddha won't know.
But I honor a monk:
he's here now, apparently,
or, at least, he seems to be.

Everything that sings and resonates..the song of Olympia! aghh!

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* everything that sings and resonates with the source is Olympia..from the ,,The Tales of Hoffmann,,opera by Offenbach...quote,,Hoffmann's first love is Olympia, an automaton created by the scientist Spalanzani. Hoffmann falls in love with her, not knowing that Olympia is a mechanical doll (Allons! Courage et confiance...Ah! vivre deux!). Nicklausse, who knows the truth about Olympia, sings a story of a mechanical doll that looked like a human to warn Hoffmann but is ignored by him (Une poupée aux yeux d'émail). Coppélius, Olympia's co-creator and this act's incarnation of Nemesis, sells Hoffmann magic glasses which make Olympia appear as a real woman (J'ai des yeux).

Olympia(as Natalie Dessay here) sings one of the opera's most famous arias Les oiseaux dans la charmille ("The Doll Song") in which she periodically runs down and needs to be wound up before she can continue...the lyrics are here..
Everything that sings and resonates
And sighs, in turn,
Moves his heart, which shudders of love!
Ah! This is the lovely song,
The song of Olympia! Ah!
Les oiseaux dans la charmille
Dans les cieux l'astre du jour,
Tout parle à la jeune fille d'amour!
Ah! Voilà la chanson gentille..
So I composed this never heard stanza..
Behold the song of Olympia
You are a mechanical doll also
But if you sing like her
You become immortal
Find the one inside you whom is singing
Because everything that sings and resonates
It is the real you..
Thus spokenth the mahayogi:)
Kisses to Olympia,and to you too...

Les oiseaux dans la charmille

Ah! Voilà la chanson gentille..
Everything that sings and resonates
And sighs, in turn,
Moves his heart, which shudders of love!
Ah! This is the lovely song,

You make my heart go giddy up:)

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* Shakti saying to Shiva..,,,you make my heart go diggy up,,,the same story from the beginning of time..the song is from Millie Small In late 1963 she went to Forest Hill, London to make her fourth recording, an Ernest Ranglin rearrangement of "My Boy Lollipop", which had seen original release by Barbie Gaye in late 1956. Released in March 1964, Small's cover was a massive hit, reaching number two both in the UK Singles Chart[2] and in the U.S. Billboard Hot 100. It also topped the chart in Australia. Initially it sold over 600,000 copies in the United Kingdom.[3] Including singles sales, album usage and compilation inclusions, the song has since sold more than seven million copies worldwide.[1]..the lyrics are here..
My boy lollipop,
You made my heart go giddy up.
You are as sweet as candy;
You're my sugar dandy.
Ha, ho my boy lollipop,
Never ever leave me,
Because it would grieve me.
My heart told me so,
I love ya, I love ya, I love ya so.
That I want ya to know,
I need ya, I need ya, I need ya so,
and I'll never let you go.
My boy lollipop,
you make my heart go giddy up.
You set my world on fire,
you are my one desire.
My boy lollipop

I love ya, I love ya, I love ya so.
That I want ya to know,
I need ya, I need ya, I need ya so,
and I'll never let you go.
My boy lollipop,
you make my heart go giddy up.
You set my world on fire,
you are my one desire.
My boy lollipop
My boy lollipop
My boy lollipop
So I composed this never heard stanza:
Behold the love story
One lollipop named Shiva
One power as Shakti
One is the lover
One the beloved
The awareness turns into itself
Spring is here..2 birds sing together as one
You make my heart go giddy up:)
The rest is silence.
Thus spokenth the mahayogi:)
