The instructions for using deep sleep on the path encom pass the m editation on clear light. In addition to deep sleep there is, within sleep, the phase o f dream. This phase is known as the dreaming condition. The yoga o f dream is the m ethod for bringing dream onto the 30 1'ENGA RlNHOCI IE: TRANSITION AND LIBERATION path. The dream appearances, based upon delusion, are brought into the m editation here. The fourth situation is the union o f man and wom an. The instructions o f tum m o, the inner heat, and certain sub divisions o f this practice, are in order to bring that situation onto the path o f practice.
In this way shamatha m editation is supported by the seclusion o f body, speech and mind. The seven point bodily posture o f Vairocana can be taken as the physical position for this m editation. There exists a variety o f types o f shamatha m editation, som e with an object o f concentration and som e without. The practice o f mahamudra com prises differing types o f both shamatha m editation and o f vipashyana meditation (m editation o f deep insight). Regardless o f which type o f meditation is applied in connection with the three seclusions, w e reach the three different stages o f pacification known as the ‘three stages o f mental stability’: Through the seclusion o f the body w e reach a stability o f the mind that is not distracted by senseless activity.
Simultaneously many lights, light rays and droplets o f light appear as a kind o f preparation for the appearances o f the bardo. Our ears perceive loud roarings and reverberating sounds. The light, the light rays, and all the phenom ena that are later to appear in the bardo o f dharmata, such as the various forms o f the peaceful and wrathful aspects o f the lords o f the five buddha families, are the self-expression o f dharmata. The loud penetrating noises are the self-sound o f dharmata. It is not as if these appearances arise newly and appear at this stage: rather they are always present in our mind as its aspect o f purity.
