In other words you don’t know what the fourth empowerment is.
Good to know.
Bill can you expand on the idea so we learn from your point.
The four thoughts that turn the mind to the dharma: Precious human birth,
Impermanence, Karma and result, and the shortcomings of Samsara.
The four thoughts correspond to the four foundations: Refuge, purification, the accumulation merit, and guru yoga.
The fourth thought, the shortcomings of samsara, corresponds with the practice of guru yoga.
The four thoughts, the four foundations, and the four empowerments represent ground, path, and result as such.
Taking the result as the path all the shortcomings of samsara are represented the guru.
The relationship between Marpa and Milarepa is an example of the guru representing the embodiment of all that is wrong with samsara.
According to the Early Translation of Tibetan Buddhism that is.
This is how the Early Translation of Tibetan Buddhism came to translate Tibetan Buddhism as a path of liberation.
Unlike the New Translation which translates the above otherwise.
And thus the difference between translations on the subject samaya, between those of us that identify as Westerners and the people here whom identify as Tibetans on the subject of samaya.
Again Jon doesn’t know what is being discussed here.
More from Ogyen Trinley Dorje’s New Translation of Tibetan Buddhism.
