One: All composite phenomena are impermanent.

Two: All contaminated things and events are unsatisfactory or in the nature of suffering.

Three: All phenomena are empty and selfless (devoid of self-existence).

And four: Nirvana is true peace.


One: It’s talking about separation and oneness: if a phenomenon, an appearance, which is what an object is composed of, must in order to be perceived as a thing in consciousness (what there is, and what all phenomenon appear within), have some sort of border, boundary, or seeming separateness from other things, then it is part of the world of change – you need time and space to have objects, and a self, and movement – then by nature it will come and go. Anything that is born dies; any perception, sensation, or thought arises then goes away; the only thing that does not change is the totality, which cannot be perceived as a thing because it isn’t – and intuitively it must the same as what is reading these words – the one perceiver.
So in short, “composite”,... show more

Poem by Thich Nhat Hanh. Written in 1965
Promise me,
promise me this day,
promise me now,
while the sun is overhead
exactly at the zenith,
promise me:

Even as they
strike you down
with a mountain of hatred and violence;
even as they step on you and crush you
like a worm,
even as they dismember and disembowel you,
remember, brother,
remember:
man is not our enemy.

The only thing worthy of you is compassion –
invincible, limitless, unconditional.
Hatred will never let you face
the beast in man.

One day, when you face this beast alone,
with your courage intact, your eyes kind,
untroubled
(even as no one sees them),
out of your smile
will bloom a flower.
And those who love you
will behold you
across ten thousand worlds of birth and dying.

Alone again,
I will go on with bent head,
knowing that love has become eternal.
On the long, rough road,
the sun and the moon
will continue to shine.

The Kusāli's Instruction on the Nature of Mind

by Jamgön Kongtrul

Namo guru!

Although there are many ways of explaining view and meditation,
They all come down to sustaining the essence of one's own mind.
What we call 'mind' is not something that exists elsewhere—
It is the very thought that you are experiencing right now!
So without being swept away and following wherever it leads,
Look directly into its face, its very own essence,
At that time, there's no duality of 'looker' and 'looked at'.
As it is empty, there's no real substance.
As it is clear, it is aware of itself.
These qualities are not separate—they are a unity.

Homage to the Eighty Four Mahasiddhas (accomplished, awakened ones)!
Homage to Mahamudra
Homage to the Vajra Dakini!

#Mahamudra cannot be taught. But most intelligent #Naropa,
Since you have undergone rigorous austerity,
With forbearance in suffering and with devotion to your Guru,
Blessed One, take this secret instruction to heart.
  • Is space anywhere supported? Upon what does it rest?
    Like space, Mahamudra is dependant upon nothing;
    Relax and settle in the continuum of unalloyed purity,
    And, your bon

OM BENZA KILI KILIYA SARWA BIGHANEN BAM HUNG PHAT - Vajrakilaya #Mantra

This mantra destroys obstacles in your life. One of the greatest Tibetan Mantras.

MANTRA MEANING:

The great master Mipham Rinpoche condenses the significance of Vajrakilaya in the following words:
Suchness is the natural state of all phenomena

This is the great perfection free of duality.

Such nature is acknowledged through individual awareness,

Which is the absolute kila – wisdom of awareness.

Vajra as non-dual knowledge is indestructible,

And Kilaya as this the unchanging nature, free of decay.

This primordially all-pervading buddha nature

Resides as the absolute nature of all beings.

Through the skillful oral advice of the guru’s instructions

And through the yoga of realizing the natural ground of the intrinsic mind.

The manifestations of samsara and nirvana are br
