MINDFULNESS OF LOVE LIGHT AND COMPASSION

ALTAIR NIRBANDH SHYAM*

*Meaning “Pillar of Light blazing in the Unbound Space of Divine Mother’s Love”

♥ 

The key to our path is to be mindful of love, light and compassion with every step, in whatever form or formlessness this takes. 

It could be Yeshua and Mary Magdalene, Metatron and Avalokiteshvara Guan Yin, Krishna and Parvati or Light in Union with Love seated on the Lotus flower of compassion. 

By constant mindfulness of such divine Energies, our Heart is transformed and delivers us from all distractions, suffering and danger. 

Mindful practice in this way allows us to discern and act wisely, to respond appropriately, and to know what to do or what not to do, as the occasion arises. 

Looking deeply into the nature of things, through the Alchemy Of Light and Sound, allows us to see all living beings with love, light and compassion, as Buddhas and Christs, and all things as part of the One Universal Mandala where clarity and loving kindness serve as a protection for us in all circumstances. 

Compassion is always informed by wisdom, prajna, and understanding. 

So our practice of compassion begins with looking deeply, vipassana, at any person or situation. 

If we are in conflict with someone, we can look deeply into the nature of their own suffering, and when we see how deep it is we do not want them to suffer anymore.

We can accept them as they are and try to help them simply by refusing to add any more suffering to their ‘plate’.

PRACTICE 

Small acts of empathy, affection, kindness, love and understanding all enhance wisdom, prajna. 

Here are some simple practices  

1) Mindful seeing – being able to see all beings as Buddhas or Christs takes Practice. One simple practice is to keep a picture in your purse or in your phone of the Buddha or Guan Yin or a Bodhisattva Archangel or Elder or any divine being including your partner or yourself if they inspire deep compassion in you and inspire you to be mindful of love of others which in turn fills your own being with love.

By taking good care of yourself you naturally take good care of others.

Think about driving home in your car to see a little child.

If you know you are going to see that beautiful child then you will drive carefully and mindfully and naturally take care of yourself on the way home in order to see that child.

So it is with life.

If we really knew every being was a divine child, just like us, we would take exceptional care of our consciousness, awareness, mind and heart in order to be able to see them and all beings as divine. 

2) Mindful hearing – being able to hear sacred names, chants, songs and mantras is a beautiful way of awakening the energy of compassion in our hearts and being able to know all beings as Buddhas or Christs.

Find a name or chant or song or mantra that you can make your own like OM MANI PADME HUM or the Lord’s Prayer or GURU RINPOCHE or another. 

Om Mani Padme Hum Mantra Card

Say it every day at special times and in special places to awaken loving kindness and remind you that this same universal hum of loving kindness is alive in each and every person you meet even though they may not be aware of it.

Recalling the sounds of compassion often helps you to rebirth continuously the energy of compassion and love in your heart.

Hearing mindfulness of love often also births Amrita or the Nectar Of Love into your being quite naturally and you will feel the beauty of the divine realm gently melting into your heart. 

THE LIGHT IN LIFE

Avalokiteshvara Guan Yin has reminded me all my life through visions and dreams and direct connections that the little things in life are the real Chintamani Stone, the real Pearl. 

The small steps we take each day such as the fervent and devotional prayer to Our Father we have said since childhood is like a drop of nectar in the ocean of infinite love light and compassion, washing away fear and bathing us in bliss. 

We may not notice how the nectar has been accumulating until one day there is an explosion of Light in our Heart and we realize that the old saying “Before Enlightenment chop wood, After Enlightenment chop wood” also refers to just how important the smallest actions we take each day are when they are done with mindfulness of love and light. 

The more present and aware we are in these actions from moment to moment the more they become portals through which we can truly open magic. 

Let go of what you think Enlightenment should look like and surrender. 

Be open to what is arising within you. 

Art: Archangel Razael by Jason McCreadie

Honor the Beauty and Love, the power and guidance that comes from your own spiritual practice. 

Be free to meditate in a new way, to work with a different chant or prayer, to heal with love and unity as you are guided. 

Listen to your heart.

 

Trust your heart that already has the seed of Enlightenment within it.

Follow your inner guidance, the path of pathlessness, the luminous gateway to divine realization.

Breathing in “I am filled with divine love, light and compassion”

Breathing out “I fill all beings with divine love, light and compassion”

Continue breathing that way whenever you remember throughout the day, allowing the Light to enter and allowing the Flame of your Enlightened Heart to be the Light of the World.

Love and Blessings

TERMA – HIDDEN TREASURES AND JEWELS OF LIGHT – IN BLISS AND IN PAIN – Altair Shyam

TERMA – HIDDEN TREASURES AND JEWELS OF LIGHT – IN BLISS AND IN PAIN

ALTAIR SHYAM

For the last four days I have had heavy bronchitis and fever.

Any aspect of being, whether it be illness, depression, separation, financial misery or joy, exuberance, abundance, birth, death, marriage and falling in love, all have the same possibility to reveal treasures and insights through our precious lives here.

It is challenging, in my case, when I cannot breathe or sleep properly and am battered by an aching physical body that is suffering, to catch spaces in those energies and make an effort to surrender and practice, however fleeting those moments may be.

Last time I had bronchitis I was in the middle of a retreat with the University of Massachusetts Medical School Mindfulness Program and I learned how to be with the energy of that suffering.

So this time I could go into it more effectively with presence.

In the middle of the night, when I could not sleep for persistent coughing for example, I listened to the Dalai Lama speaking about Dzogchen, the Heart Essence of the Great Perfection, on You Tube.

It was difficult to concentrate, but the essence of the talk was that according to the Secret Mantra Vehicle in order for the fundamental innate mind of clear light to manifest, it is necessary first of all for the coarser mind, caught up in thoughts and concepts, to be harnessed by yogas, such as the yogas of vital energies, pranayoga, or the yoga of inner bliss or fire or heat, tummo.

These yoga practices harness and purify thought into revealing the fundamental innate mind of clear light.

Well, why not try it in the midst of pain with a little more presence than I did before?

As I was attempting to meditate on this I practiced the Kriya Breath of Babaji and withdrew my consciousness into the central channel and waited, surrendering to the innate nature of the Light.

After a long period of being still there was a wondrous silence (wondrous because my breathing had been so labored for so many hours prior to this) and then the vast vista of being, an inner lucidity of primordial purity dawned in my consciousness.

It is best described as spontaneous presence when the natural radiance of mind becomes manifest for the benefit of others.

This is our nature, that Light and Presence are our innate mind and heart.

I remember being told the story of a famous Lama who for all his years of practices could not remain mindful while under the influence of drugs when he was in hospital after a heart attack. He realized how important practice was and how when he was not able to be mindful he had to rely on the good karma of years of practice.

So on another occasion I decided to have a very hot bath to try to alleviate the heavy breathing as steam is known to help breathing trouble.

Princess Mandarava

~*~

I had been absorbing the terma of Princess Mandarava, also known as Dakini Pandaravasini, a divine consort of Guru Padmasambhava.

I used the same principle of relying on the good karma of Princess Mandarava’s terma to guide me as I sank into the steamy waters, first visualizing myself sinking into the emerald waters of the Naga King’s abode of Lake Namaru in Tibet where She had visited.

I practiced the Kriya Breath of Babaji and withdrew my consciousness into the central channel and waited, surrendering to the innate nature of the Light.

I drifted consciously into a space between wakefulness and dreaming and called upon Divine Mother in all Her forms.

Devotion to Her is a wondrous thing.

From the point between my eyebrows a white hrih came forth and then a ruby hrih from my throat and a clear blue hirh radiated from my heart, a yellow hrih from my navel and a green hrih from the secret place.

This was a most magnificent form of Light Language revealing itself from the power of concentration as a Rainbow Body.

This is also our nature, using the power of concentration with intention to manifest a portal which benefits all living beings.

You could use any place and time and any vibration.

I use the seed syllable hrih because this had manifested spontaneously some time ago in an initiation with the Dalai Lama.

Om Amideva Hrih by Alexis DePetro @ Fine Art America

***

You could just as simply use OM or AMEN and be with Shiva or Shakti at Mt Kailash, Yeshua or Mary Magdalene at Bethany.

Each of us, when we share with divine focus and pure intention, becomes a gateway, a portal, for another to reach love and compassion, other worlds and other dimensions, to touch immortal pure awareness.

When we share with courage, faith and will, we allow those we share with to return again and again, regardless of time or place, to divine consciousness.

This is known as Terma or hidden teaching, an esoteric form of revelation from alchemy or tantra.

You create magic in this way.

Transporting others at will by the Light of your Consciousness.

This earth is a Pure Land and all its beings are Christ, Buddha, Guan Yin.

I am just a shoeless monk opening hearts by sewing seeds of love and compassion.

If a single heart awakens just a little with me, then that is miracle enough for me.

As it is written…

Whoever sees, hears, recalls or encounters Terma will be placed on the path to perfect enlightenment.

When you tell the story of your own Terma, your own hidden treasures that were revealed over the course of this precious human lifetime, what will you tell your friends and children and what will they tell their children?

Since this is you creating magic I would tell the story of how I see you, the Buddha and Divine Mother, and your life in the seven paradises, your intention to manifest here on earth for the benefit of all living beings, your choice of mother and how you entered her womb with the power of the five clairvoyances, how you quickly perceived the illusion of samsara, practiced the six perfections and trained on the stages of the path, developing qualities through your practice of secret mantra, accomplishing the state of immortal pure awareness holder, attaining enlightenment, journeying beyond into nirvana, and then intentionally reincarnating for the benefit of all beings. 

We carry the sacred flame of enlightenment, the miracle of the inner fire of bliss, within us.

Let it shine.

This is the mantra of the Heart Sutra, the Prajnaparamita Sutra, the Sutra of the Blessed Mother.
