An ocean of perspectives.

 
Words can say may things. As i read the dedications to the work of my Master in his book, i see an ocean of perspectives,, all from the life and times of a Great Zen Master. I have a place for it after i order it. I`ll put it in my Buddha box under my altar, until the time comes  to where it finds it`s way into my hands. Then, and only then……will i read it. For then, it would of come to me via the workings of the Dharma and karma itself. I bow to your Great Compassion, and raise my Buddha mind to your Wisdom

  1. Please follow this link; http://www.angelfire.com/electronic/awakening101/janas.html THE JHANAS IN THERAVADAN BUDDHIST MEDITATION PRESENTED BY the Wanderling I talk to many people here that in fact do follow the Path Of The Theravadan,and i will just come out and say it "SMASH" the Mahayana school and by their own admittance is do to mainly their lack of understanding the teachings of the school(s) of sudden enlightenment. I even have talked to some that are very well advanced in their study of sutra`s without a teacher, just self taught. That tell me they need no teacher, that the one on one relationship between teacher and student is a wast of time, that the sutra`s is all that is needed. So i chose the 8th stage to show how much a true meditation master, (a true teacher of the Way)is the only one that can save you from nirvana (ultimate bliss),that is mistaken for Enlightenment. The Tibetan Wheel of Life drawn by the Buddha himself shows nirvana as the view of the moon, but he is pointing not forward, but backward from the stand point of buddhahood. We become monks to renounce the world only because to truly liberate we must be free from all Things. In the end it doesn`t matter what school we train or follow,Theravada or Mahayana. Each has much to share with the other, And over these years i now see that even though in the beginning we perceive them as opposites and i have even heard that, " They rub against the grain of each other." I see now after theses years, that parts and pieces from both school start to merge together. I can`t help but to reflect on my Tibetan study of Lama Sopa`s first vol. of why the Buddha tough in three scopes.Keep an open mind, be well and safe..metta!
