The emptiness of emptiness in the long Karma Kagyu lineage of crazy wisdom

Dear readers,

Salut mes amis !

What is freedom if not the nature of not having a nature?

“It is not reasonable that a nature
Originates from causes and conditions,
A nature that originates from causes and conditions
Would be a nature that is produced.

How could a ‘produced nature’
Be suitable as a nature?
Natures are unfabricated
And not dependent on anything else”

Nāgārjuna

The fundamental verses on centrism

Prajñāmamūlamadhyamakakārika

Dbu ma rtsa ba’i tshig le’ur byas pa she rab ces bya ba

Translation from Karl Brunnhölzl

Center of the sunlit sky

Page 110

Voilà !

Any dharma that does not allow for such freedom is not a path to liberation but something else.

For example, China’s safe short Karma Kagyu lineage of Ogyen Trinley Dorje.

Courage !

Bill
