Buddhadharma : Spri 2007
buddhadharma| 27 |spring 2007 Disciples! Aren’t You Filled with Joy? A spontaneous song of experience by Chokyi Nyima Rinpoche. In the essence of realization of the buddhas, the lords of the three times, The natural state of the dharma of the definitive meaning, There are no divisions as to buddhas and sentient beings. Sugatagarbha is present in everyone. Reflecting on this innate state, I feel great joy! All beings are fooled by the thought of ego-clinging. Reflecting on this delusion, I feel deep despair! The lord guru has pointed out the natural face of awareness. Reflecting on this liberation, I am filled with amazement! This is not far away; it is right before you. It is not too difficult; it is too simple. What a great loss not to recognize The fact that your present ordinary mind Is the self-existing buddha! Don’t cover your naked empty awareness With layers of indecisive meandering! Don’t veil your natural face Within the grip of a meditator and his object. Now is time for direct experience! The sign of experience is your nature turning gentle. Faith and devotion spring forth spontaneously. Love and compassion naturally well up. The ocean of understanding and experience overflows. Vital it is to practice the view, meditation, and action Condensed into a single key point! Seizing the stronghold of your innate mind You have captured the illustrious kingdom of dharmakaya. With no need to hope for a future result, Disciples! Aren’t you filled with joy? This inexpressible nature, self-existing wakefulness, Is claimed to be understood by almost everyone, But rare is it that someone is free from mental fabrication! You may have the drive of wishing to meditate, But unless you give rise to experience from your heart, Halfway understanding will fail to liberate you. What certainty is there, without realizing the true nature! Resolve the view definitively! Refine the practice repeatedly! fRom The Union of MahaMUdra and dzogchen, by Chokyi Nyima RiNpoChe. pubLished by RaNgjuNg yeshe pubLiCatioNs. MagdHaMyjak
