According to the Buddha mind and enlightenment are one in the same

Dear readers,

Salut mes amis !

From the Buddha’s third turning of the wheel of the dharma.

“Mind and enlightenment
Are not seen as two.
What is the defining characteristic of enlightenment
Is also the defining characteristic of mind.”

The great drum Sūtra

Mahābherihārasutra


rnga bo chen po’i mdo

Translation from Karl

The center of the sunlit sky

Page 92

Voilà !

Entrusted to us by Rangjung Rikpe Dorje,
the 16th Karmapa, for the ages.

Courage !

Bill
