Pandey Norbu Shedra 2015 - The Way of Meditating on True Nature
with Tulku Rigsang
Katog Rithrod Mountain Retreat Center, Parthenon, Arkansas
October 17 - 25, 2015
The Nature of Thoughts is Always Liberated
A teaching from Arya Nagarjuna’s treatise
"Explanation on the Mind of Awakening"
The priceless mind of awakening is twofold, relative and ultimate. Relative bodhicitta arouses in us a passion for awakening that is grounded in compassion. This is the skillful method for taming our mind. Ultimate bodhicitta is the ;experience of the true nature of all phenomena, perceiver and perceived. The conduct of non-harmingarises from wisdom that knows and grows more familiar with the natural state. This is the wisdom that tames our inflexible mind.
While Nagarjuna's treatise focuses on ultimate bodhicitta, this teaching also covers the practices of relative bodhicitta. This is the unity of method and wisdom. For example, when we get angry about something, we are encouraged to look into the mind that arises as anger, rather than to conceptualize that anger and what we speculate may be its causes. Thoughts thus unravel right where they are like pouring water over a blazing fire.
