To all or none

Let us look in ,
The diffmerence that this slight change in orientation(ordinary people looking
inside their Mind),could make is enormous ,and might even reverse those disasters that threaten the world.When a much larger of people know the nature of their minds'they will know also the glorious nature of the world they are in ,and struggle urgently and bravely to preserve it.It is interesting that the word for Buddhist in Tibetan is nangpa.It means inside-er:someone who seeks the the truth not outside,but within the nature of mind .All the teachings and training in Buddhism are aimed at that one single polnt:to look into the nature of the mind,and so free us from the fear of death and help us realize the truth of life.

Looking in will require of us great subtlety and great courage-nothing less than a complete shift in or attitude to life and mind.We are so addicted to looking outside
Ourselves,that we have lost access to our being almost completely.

Bringing the Mind home
Sogyal Rinpoche

To all,it is very hard for me to choose only few quotes of this book that should be read by anyone with interest in Buddhism.This part that I chose,is how to train the mind-sem-to rigpa.
Devote it in meditation to the task of freeing itself from illusion,and we will find that,
with time,patience,discipline,and the riht training,our mindwill begin to unknot itself and know its essential bliss and clarity.

:Training:the Mind does not in any way mean forcibly subjugating or brainwashing the mind.To train the Mind is first to see directly and concretely how the mind functions,a knowledge tht you derive from spiritual teaching and through personal experience in meditation practice.Then you can use that understanding to tame the mind and work with it skillfully,to make it more and more pliable,so that you can become master of your own mind (rigpa) and employ it to it fullest and most beneficial end.

Loong the messenger.

To all or none,

To those who follow my posts,I deeply thank you.

As I am reading the book of Tibetan............
The great Sogyal Rinpoche, writes of 4 bardos.Mind you he is the Master.

Ihave read in other researches of 6 bardos.
With Buddhism and all other religions/phylosophies,there is always this
Mixing of infos..Whom do you believe? Not everyone is frank like me.

So if someone gives you an info on Buddhism ,ask that person his
Reference,where he read that book and let your Rigpa ,the true Mind
Make the choice.
So in this case I will choose SOGYAL RINPOCHE,the expert.
So here are the names of the 4 bardos:
1-The natural bardo of life,it spansthe entire period between birth and death.
2-The painful bardo of dying lasts,from the beginning process of dying
Right up until the end of what is known as the:inner respiration:
3-The luminous bardo of dharmata encompasses the afterdeath experience
Of the radiance of nature of mind,the Luminosity or:Clear Light:,which manifests
As sound,color and light.
4-The karmic bardo of becoming is what we generally call the Bardo of the

Intermediate state,which lasts right up until the moment we take aNEW
Birth.

What distinguishes andd defines each of the bardos is that they are all gaps or periods in which the possibility of Awakening is particularly present.

So this is the text written by SRinpoche,ITSELF was expecting much more.
I have read that the 4th bardo can last up to 27 days,

I will try to find more.
Stay tuned

This is I believe the first time I give my lineage and sure of it.

am going to try to find out is the expression of painful bardo of dying?

Dear Teacher,

Reading the Bardo teaching ,could not sleep.
I beleive ,I have just entered another realm in Buddhism.
It is written to be careful when entering this ,may I call it realm,do not know another word for it.
Please be my guiding light.
Done research on the 100 Deities of the Dharma,could not find any explanation or list of these Deities.
Do you have references on these 100 Deities.

Hi Loong, I have not read this particular book on the bardos, so honestly, I am not sure about everything you are asking! I will try to take some time next week to research it. I do not personally know of '100 deities'. It may be specific to a particular lineage. I am familiar with the 84 mahasiddhas, but not 100 deities! Part of the challenge of many books within Tibetan Buddhism is that they are meant to be read while studying with a particular teacher, and in a particular order. This may be one of those books. Some books are written for a general audience, like The Tibetan Book of LIving and Dying, while others are translations of texts that are meant to be used while you are studying with a teacher within a particular lineage. Those kinds of books are almost like textbooks within a class - without the class they are too hard to follow.
I have to ask, what attracted you to this particular book? Was it footnoted in Sogyal Rinpoche's book?
