Buddhadharma : Summer 2012
SUMMER 2 0 1 2 BUDDHADHARMA: THE PRACTITIONER’S QUARTERLY 47 Whenever we do not recognize the pure nature of the manifestation of wisdom display, we cling to unobstructed mind’s uncatchable self-arising reflection, obscuring its inseparable emptiness and luminosity, and separating the divisionless phenomena elements into subject and object. As soon as there is division, there is impurity and obstruction. With this division, “I” becomes the subject and what this “I” perceives becomes the object, whether one or many, lifeless or lively, inanimate or animate. With this division, there is constant moving back and forth between subject and object, which is the beginning of direction and time, between root circumstances and contrib- uting circumstances, between rejecting and accepting unpleasant and pleasant phenomena, between bad and good intentions, and between doubting and hoping. We call this divided mind dualistic mind, which is the cause of bad and good karma. The Wisdom Mind of Thinley Norbu Wisdom Mind and the Birth of Samsara I bow to my own Wisdom Mind which is my best wisdom teacher, the source of all visible and invisible qualities. Sentient beings are always in time and place. If sentient beings are in time, my wisdom teacher dances magically in time. If sentient beings are in place, my wisdom teacher dances magically in place. If really examined, you never remain anywhere. You are only display. To whatever never remains, to you, my best wisdom teacher, I bow. All generally visible measureless phenomena elements are the display of self-secret division- less unobstructed Wisdom Mind. The nature of mirrorlike Wisdom Mind is that everything arises with infinite obstructed and unobstructed potential. The great Nyingma master Thinley Norbu Rinpoche passed away last December at the age of eighty. We celebrate his life with remembrances and a selection of the profound Dzogchen teachings he imparted to the West.
