DREAMS, VISIONS, MEDITATION AND ACTION
ALTAIR NIRBANDH SHYAM*
A connection I made to our dreams hit me like an earthquake and thundered through Being for several days.
I was still talking to my wife, Sumire about it this morning.
I will try to put it into words as it affected me profoundly at the core and touched so many ‘pieces’ of the puzzle in our continuum from beginning to no-end.
Here is what unfolded in a nutshell.
LIGHT POSTS AND OUR PURPOSE
We are all searching for purpose.
We come here as Light Beings trying to make sense of the physical.
We get presented with so many pieces of the puzzle, from creating a family to finding a job, connecting with our place, finding a home, and all the past lives, future possibilities, spiritual paths and steps along the way of pathlessness.
A Brother reminded me of my dream in 2016 where we were given sign posts or Light Posts which if we are present enough will act as portals and open up infinite possibilities to explore.
I was contemplating that and thinking about all my friends struggling or searching with one or another of these aspects when a wave of dream consciousness hit me.
It came as a continuum like watching many lives unfold and instead of actions taking place over a series of past lives, which might be how you would traditionally view lives, it was as a sequence of dreams viewed over many lifetimes.
Then everything switched places and the dreams became lives and the lives became dreams.
I saw the many lives where I had used dreams as dream yoga teachings to teach me.
As Palmo Shonu in the time of Padmasambhava and Sakya Pema in the time of Sakya Pandita just prior to the first Dalai Lama, for example.
How I had placed signposts or Light Posts in my dreams as well as in the physical.
Then everything became still.
And I received teachings I had activated in past lives.
Which is when the thunder rumbled.
Metaphorically, and physically inside.
I became aware of very powerful signposts or Light Posts I had left…such as the dream I had at age 2, which has triggered a lot of exploration, and the one I mentioned in 2016 that was brought up again now, which in effect triggered this thunder.
I realized I have very specific past life memories and memories of actual rituals and ceremonies…and that like the dream I planted at age 2, I have planted similar dreams at the beginning and during those past lives, such as Palmo Shonu and Sakya Pema, which are acting now as continuums of experience to help me remember those memories and activations.
That in turn sparked a series of realizations connecting the continuum of visions meditations and actions I have had over this life and others.
Which I in turn connected to a teaching I literally just opened after all this happened which reads…
“Liberate yourself through dreams visions meditation and actions”
By Yeshe Tsogyal, Padmasambhava and Princess Mandarava
So a real AHA moment.
And something I am eternally grateful for.
Easter Sunday offered us a beautiful gift.
We were traveling to pick up Maia from Sumire’s mum when a large hare ran out in front of the car and instead of running across the road continued in a straight line up the road as if it was wanting us to follow.
It was most unusual, so we slowed down and followed it a little way.
It reminded us of a similar time, just before Sumire found out she was pregnant, when we discovered a snake climbing up the two floors of steps that led to the house we were staying in as if it were bringing us a message.
So we saw this hare on Easter Sunday like the Easter bunny, bringing us rebirth and life like our brother Yeshua.
As a result of what has happened I am contemplating deeply the “immensity” as my Brother put it, of the dreams, visions, meditations, actions and Light Posts that are littering my incarnation.
I am discovering the vinaya or “learnings” of the Sangha or community we are in that I live by.
These include a promise to liberate all others.
THE HEART SUTRA
I am faithful to the sutras or our own internal teachings that we live by.
These include the Heart sutra
“gate gate pāragate pārasaṃgate bodhi svāhā”
“go, go, go beyond, go thoroughly beyond, and establish yourself in enlightenment”
The Heart Sutra or Prajñāpāramitāhṛdaya tells us that the Heart is the Perfection of Wisdom.
Science has discovered that the heart has a complex neural network that can be characterized as a brain on the heart.
The heart-brain’s neural circuitry enables it to act independently of the cranial brain to learn, remember, make decisions and even feel and sense.
The heart has 40,000 specialized cells called sensory neurites, brain-like cells in the heart.
We can learn from our heart.
We can listen to our heart.
Kriya and techniques like pranic breathing take these two organs, the heart and the brain and combine them into a single potent neural network through the astral spine or spine of light.
This opens the door, the portal, to deep intuition, when we want it.
Connecting the heart and the brain in precise ways like this is how deathless states, as Babaji and Padmasambhava experienced, can be actualized in this lifetime.
We all have these abilities.
The key is to harmonize the heart and the brain into a single whole network.
The heart has a vibration we call emotions.
When people experience uplifting emotions like compassion and gratitude and they practice and sustain the emotion, there is a coherence, which creates waves, like dropping a pebble in the water.
INTENTION AND EMOTION
The waves around the heart expand.
That energy is a frequency.
All frequency carries information.
These powerful emotions become the carrier wave for the person’s intention.
The intention is information (at this point in my writing, diamond white light appeared in front of me) which when combined with uplifting emotions, means you broadcast a new electromagnetic signature into the field.
A new day, a new dawn begins.
It is your signal, your sign post, your Light Post to the universe and destiny.
The longer you are able to rest your consciousness in that energy, instead of three dimensional consciousness (tied to time and space) the more you will generate a flow, a vibrational match, beyond space and time.
The heart opens and there is a connection to something greater and we know whatever we wish is going to happen and we trust in the impossibility and multiple possibilities.
We collapse time into timelessness and space moves towards us.
We become the magnet.
Like a planet, a world, created anew, we become a divine realm in which the whole cosmos exists.
OUR INNER TEACHER
My visions are in alignment with abhidharma or higher teaching/meta-teaching as we are constantly learning about our inner teacher as we teach.
These include the synthesis and connections of the work of Yeshua and Mary Magdalene, Yogananda and the Dalai Lama, St Therese Of Lisieux, Ramana Maharshi, Padmasambhava, Yeshe Tsogyal and Princess Mandarava.
These are our bedrock, our foundation.
I purify the breath, prana, as a Child of the Sacred Breath, through Kriya as taught by Babaji.
I cultivate the mind and heart through upayoga (energisation, good diet, sleep, exercise through yoga, generosity, teaching, patience, effort, meditation, samadhi).
I train my vision through yoga-tantra (annuttarayoga tantra) which in the Dzogchen system, used by Nyingma practitioners devoted to Padmasambhava and also by Babaji and Yogananda involves gathering and dissolving the inner winds (prana) into the central channel (sushumna) through meditation, often manifesting as mystical visions and inner activations.
These give rise to the blessings of compassion.
THE DIVINE MASCULINE
I practice invocation through Mahayoga the divine masculine principle (transforming anger) where one visualizes oneself as divinity with a consort.
By doing this we give external form to the formless enlightenment within us.
The external world is visualized as a mandala, pure and sacred and we realize that all of our everyday experience is a visualization.
Sometimes we ‘see’ or ‘perceive’ it through our senses as good, and sometimes as bad, when in fact we can through training visualize ourselves constantly as a Buddha or Christ or Divine Mother and the world as pure.
We gain, through practice, alchemy and magic, a unique portal to the underlying veils that exist in our world and a way of transforming them.
We learn eight cosmic commands, eight ways of inter-being and interconnecting with reality and altering its momentum for the benefit of others.
(These eight include invoking the alchemy or powers of deities of body, speech, mind, enlightened qualities, action, summoning, offerings and praise and mantra or sound)
These in turn are producing dreams, visions, meditation and actions which all are a continuum and all are informing each other like enlightened families and friends.
THE DIVINE FEMININE
I practice energy awareness through anuyoga the divine feminine principle (transforming passion) by meditating on the inner subtle light body, the energy centers (chakras), prana (winds or subtle energies) nadis (inner pathways along which one’s energy travels) and bindu (consciousness) often experienced by me as the Blue Pearl manifesting as a blue light.
This grants power and siddhi through purification of the seed essence, the bliss seed or drop of amrita or nectar at the heart.
(I saw the Blue Light at this point as I wrote this, which is one of my Light Posts)
This is Ati Yoga.
Its origins reach back to before human history, and neither is it limited to Buddhism nor to Tibet, nor indeed even to this world of ours, as it is recorded that it has existed in thirteen different world systems.
It means ‘primordial yoga’;
Ati indicates the topmost, summit or zenith.
It has the sense of scaling a mountain, reaching the peak, fulfilling our mission and having a view over everything.
Perfecting the four visions of the path, one gains the supreme kaya or Light Body, the rainbow body* of great transference, and attains the level of glorious Samantabhadra, the Primordial Christ or Buddha , the thirteenth bhumi or dimension known as ‘Unexcelled Wisdom’ or ‘Great Rays of Light in All Directions’ , the embodiment of timeless awareness.
THE FOUR VISIONS
I contemplated the four visions,
The direct experience of reality (as Light, the Clear Light of Being)
The increasing of experience (increase in experiences of the Light in all directions)
The awareness that reaches its full ultimate presence (awareness of the Light pervades everything and everywhere)
The dissolution of these experiences into a reality beyond the mind (nameless, timeless, formless awareness where the “I” is not and I AM Presence is)
As if in validation of what was being revealed I had a beautiful dream where I died and was met by Yogananda and the Dalai Lama in the Light and offered the opportunity to be a monk with either order in the next world.
I told them I would choose both based on my understanding of the enlightened Rainbow Body and emanations.
When I resurrected on Hiranyaloka I would emanate two other bodies to help liberate others in two other worlds.
SEEING AND AHA MOMENTS
Catching moments like this is like catching an AHA or an immense moment in your life.
When you are in those moments, totally present, everything flows, you realize that the AHA moment has always been with you, it is just that this time you saw it differently and so had an AHA experience.
The key is SEEING.
Consciousness, perception, awareness and presence.
It all depends on how you are guided to see. You see those precious moments, the AHAs, the ‘immensity’ in a different light so that you are now accountable for the immensity in your life or the AHA.
You need to act.
If you could awaken the same feeling in others around their ‘key responsibility’ in their life and give them the same feeling you had, our world would be full of flow and AHA.
The world would wake up and be responsible now for what they do and see since they now understand it.
You would help people wake up to their missions.
Realization is the key.
And helping others wake up.
And once you can ‘see’ or ‘understand’ something, then you can move toward it – providing you want to move toward it.
That is why you need to cultivate first an altruistic desire to want to move towards it.
The AHA or immense moments are Light Posts in your life script as if you are writing them with golden scroll as you go, to be alert and awake to them.
I had several other signs following this – a red white and gold Japanese fan fell on my head symbolizing birth and infinite paths as well as luck and wealth.
Then a spider came out of my meal, the symbol for creativity.
After that numerous dreams and a butter lamp light in my meditation.
HOW TO UNLOCK THE SECRETS OF YOUR MIND AND HEART
At the heart of all we do is Love and Wisdom.
We are learning how to teach our body, mind and heart to be empowered and know what any state will feel like in the future.
For example, with enlightenment, through the Dalai Lama and the Kalachakra Tantra I was fortunate enough to have an enlightenment experience that lasted three days.
I am now continuously in the process of teaching my body mind and heart, NOW, what it feels like to live and love in the future in that state of enlightenment.
A continuum, a continual state.
Such states are our soul compass.
The moment we contact these states within directly, we manifest them.
The moment we are in awe with life we attract the mystical.
The moment we are in love with life we attract an equal.
We are all finding our own language of Love and Wisdom.
When we decide to take up our unique vision, our unique contribution to the universe, fully, we have to be prepared to die to the old self. We will be challenged!
Our life is our initiation and our enlightenment.
We haven’t had the experience yet perhaps because of bad habits, limited beliefs, unconscious thoughts and automatic programs which are all happening behind the scenes of our awareness.
As we make the journey to our dream we hit the first obstacle.
We have to be creative in our environment.
Every great person in our history knows they have to be in a different state of being to solve those obstacles.
We have to die to our old self, modify ourself and surrender.
If we meet new obstacles with old patterns of behavior and belief then we are meeting it with the past, not presence.
Each obstacle is a new initiation.
The key is knowing we are worthy and staying very present for that experience. We also know that people in history have gone through that same experience.
So we can ask ourselves basic questions.
What new beliefs do we need? (= new feelings and states)
What new questions should we be asking?
What new strategies should we be putting in place?
What new actions should we be taking?
The New Dawn.
For a New Day.

gate gate pāragate pārasaṃgate bodhi svāhā
“go, go, go beyond, go thoroughly beyond, and establish yourself in enlightenment”
- Through the practice of trekchö, the practitioner can attain the so-called ‘rainbow body’, in which the body becomes smaller and smaller as it dissolves, emanating rainbow light, and finally only the hair and nails are left behind.
- Through the practice of tögal, the practitioner can dissolve his or her body into the ‘Light Body’ (Tib. འོད་སྐུ་, ö ku), where the body transforms into light and disappears completely into space. This was done by Garab Dorje, Manjushrimitra, Shri Singha, Jnanasutra and Vairotsana.
- Another accomplishment of tögal practice is the ‘Rainbow Body of Great Transference’ (Tib. འཇའ་ལུས་འཕོ་བ་ཆེན་པོ་, ja lü phowa chenpo; Wyl. ‘ja lus ‘pho ba chen po), where the master dissolves his or her body into rainbow light and lives for centuries in order to benefit others. Such was the case with Babaji, Mataji, Padmasambhava, Vimalamitra, Nyang Tingdzin Zangpo and Chetsün Senge Wangchuk.
