In the spring of 1997, i used to be doing retreat in a single of the Vajrapani Institute's beautiful cabins while I heard that Zopa Rinpoche was once arriving to wait an FPMT board assembly. That spring, His Holiness the Dalai Lama had given Yamantaka initiation and remark, and that i had numerous questions concerning the defense wheel perform. virtually miraculously, Rinpoche had the time to determine me and that i posed my questions. He spoke back in short, and concluded via announcing that others would need to profit approximately this too, so he may educate it to the practitioners within the region. I marveled on the success of having the ability to listen to the extra huge teachings team surroundings may provide.

In Rinpoche's average sort, sooner than he taught the safety wheel element of the sadhana, he coated the previous meditations and hence gave in-depth teachings at the 4 immeasurables, vacancy, and taking loss of life because the route to dharmakaya. I later transcribed and edited these teachings to create this book.

Example text

It does not specify that what is non-existent is a particular part of the appearance-inherent existence. It does not specify that the part of your perception that is hallucination is non-existent. Here, in the four extremes, "non-existent" means phenomena being totally non-existent-not existing even nominally. Thus, phenomena are free from being totally non-existent. The third extreme is both eternalism and nihilism. Clearly, if phenomena are 'free from externalism and free from nihilism, they are free from both.

Rinpoche: Are you pregnant? Lobsang: No, I'm just a fat monk. When I was in the hospital, one of the nurses said,' "I hope you are pregnant. It would be wonderful for Buddhism. " Rinpoche: Let's say that you are going to reincarnate as a woman in you-r next life and become pregnant. You have the potential to do that, dori't you? But just because you have that potential, are you pregnant now? It is similar. If you say you are already Buddha because you have Buddha potential, then you should also be pregnant because you have the potential to be pregnant in a future life.

Tomorrow's aggregates do not exist now.. ceased by tomorrow, their continuation exists in the form of tomorrow's aggregates. Thursday's aggregates have ceased by Friday, and Friday's aggregates exist. The label "I" is imputed in dependence on these. Similarly, when this life ceases, the consciousness takes another body and I is labeled in dependence on the aggregates of the next life. The base-the aggregates-has changed, but the label I continues and is imputed oh the continuation of aggregates in the next life.
