Many paths lead from
The foot of the mountain,
But at the peak
We all gaze at the
Single bright moon.

Whatever you do, there will be a consequence... And consequences need not necessarily be pleasant or unpleasant. It simply depends on how you carry them with you. If you joyfully carry the consequence, it will be a labor of love. Otherwise, it will be just labor.

You say you have heard stories about being swallowed by the Master and so you became afraid of me. But now it is different.
Your only wish is to disappear completely.
Then don't touch anything at all.
Don't combine yourself with anything.
Don't hold any desire or intention, or any ideas about who you are or who or what you should be.
Now the real Master, The Satguru within, is going to swallow you up from inside. This means your mind is being merged in the universal Heart, the universal Being.
It is all unfolding by itself.
And it is the most beautiful thing.
Don't listen to what the mind has to say about it.
Stay in the experience itself. Don't imagine. Be quiet.
Be in the moment without expectations and you feel the Presence stirring within you.
Such joy.
Such Peace.
No arrogance.
No pride.
No sense of specialness.
Just the natural state, natural Being.
Welcome home.

The bow is sacred OM and the arrow is our soul. Brahman is the mark of the arrow, the aim of the soul. Even as an arrow becomes one with its mark, let the watchful soul be one in him.

When you are steadfast in the principles of the guru-disciple relationship, the spiritual path becomes very easy. You cannot then go astray. No matter how delusion tries to pull you away, the master who has experienced God knows your trouble and will help you to steady yourself on the path again. That is what the guru does for you if you are in tune with him.

Longchenpa

Longchen Rabjampa, Drimé Özer (Wylie: Klong-chen rab-'byams-pa, Dri-med 'od-zer) "Longchenpa" (1308–1364) was a major teacher in the Nyingma school of Tibetan Buddhism. Along with Sakya Pandita and Je Tsongkhapa, he is commonly recognized as one of the three main manifestations of Manjushri to have taught in Central Tibet. His major work is the Seven Treasures, which encapsulates the previous 600 years of Buddhist thought in Tibet. Longchenpa was a critical link in the esoteric and esoteric transmission of the Dzogchen teachings. He was abbot of Samye, one of Tibet's most important monasteries and the first Buddhist monastery established in the Himalaya, but spent most of his life travelling or in retreat.

Life is impermanent like autumn clouds,
youth is impermanent like the flowers of spring,
the body is impermanent like borrowed property;
the lord of death, like the shadow of the western mountain, will not delay.

If you die of excitement, it’s all right. Such a magnificent creation and you die of boredom – that’s a crime.

Live in joy,
In love,
Even among those who hate.

Live in joy,
In health,
Even among the afflicted.

Live in joy,
in peace,
Even among the troubled.

Look within.
Be still.
Free from fear and attachment,
Know the sweet joy of the way.

Some people say that to take refuge in the Buddha is to take refuge in the body of the Tathāgata, which comprises head, neck, stomach, back, hands and feet. It is explained that the body, born of father and mother, is composed of defiled dharmas, and therefore is not a source of refuge. The refuge is the Buddha's fully accomplished qualities (aśaikṣadharmāḥ) which comprise bodhi and the dharmakāya*.

The Abhidharma Mahāvibhāṣa Śāstra is an ancient Buddhist text. It is thought to have been authored around 150 CE


The Mahāvibhāṣā defines the Mahāyāna teachings, which are described as Vaipulya (Ch. 方廣), a commonly used synonym for the Mahāyāna teachings:.

What is the Vaipulya? It is said to be all the sūtras corresponding to elaborations on the meanings of the exceedingly profound Dharmas.

Equal to the six ornaments of our world and the two supreme ones,
With a spirit of compassion, scriptural understanding, and realization,
Living as a hidden yogi, practicing in forest retreats ---
Longchenpa, the perfection of samsara and Nirvana as Dharmakaya*,
Drime Ozer, at your feet I pray.
Fill me with your blessing so that I may realize the natural state, the essence of my mind.

Since everything is but an apparition,
perfect in being what it is,
having nothing to do with acceptance or rejection, good or bad,
one may well burst out in laughter.

* - The Dharmakāya (Sanskrit: lit. "truth body" or "reality body")
