ROV Moments 59:
Utter Release, Abandoning Doubt & Leaping Over
It feels so wonderful when we can touch the ground of silence, stillness and spaciousness that is also the ground of my being, your being and the ground of all. It is hiranyagarbha, the nothingness from which all this arises and into which everything merges as if by magic.
It feels so wonderful when we can utterly release into this ground of being, with absolute conviction, abandoning all doubt, freeing ourselves from ignorance, aversion and grasping and leaping over all obstacles.
This poem by Rumi
captures the merging of the inner and outer, and the sense of continuous arising out of nothingness and merging into nothingness.
“I see my beauty in you,
I become a mirror
that cannot close its eyes to your longing.
My eyes wet with yours in the early light.
My mind every moment giving birth,
always conceiving, always in the ninth month,
always the come-point.
How do I stand this?
We become these words we say,
a wailing sound moving out into the air.
These thousands of worlds that rise from nowhere,
how does your face contain them?
I am a fly in your honey, then closer,
a moth caught in the flame’s allure,
then empty sky stretched out in homage.”
Subtle Energy Meditation, Dzogchen and Mahamudra have at their heart the view of stillness, silence and spaciousness.
His Holiness The Dalai Lama says
“When you reflect on emptiness, you find that ignorance has no solidity at all”
In the Fruition of Vipashyana from The Royal Seal of Mahamudra, Acharya Nagarjuna says
“If realized, tell me what is there that is able to bind?
Whatever the fetter, from the beginning it is liberation itself.
Since neither bondage nor fetter is found to exist anywhere,
Let the elephant living in the forest roam as it pleases.”
Mahamudra, (Sanskrit: “the great seal”) in Vajrayana (Tantric) Buddhism, the final goal, the union of all apparent dualities. Mudra, in addition to its more usual meaning, has in Vajrayana Buddhism the esoteric meaning of “female partner,” which in turn symbolizes prajna (“wisdom”).
Stephen Altair guides you into a space of emptiness, luminous awareness and clarity in this short meditation practice using the principles of Mahamudra and the style of Dzogchen Ponlop Rinpoche.
