Mind Beyond Death* by Dzogchen Ponlop

THE EIGHT CASES OF BASIC GOODNESS NOT TO BE SHUNNED
A Vajra Song of Gotsangpa

Namo Ratna Guru

I bow to the lord who grants the bliss that is utterly supreme
Which takes away the suffering of illness
For every being that's everywhere throughout the reaches of space
By administering the medicine of the three kayas

In the pure space of the sky that's the sky of essential mind itself
The clouds of negative actions thickly gather
But the mighty force of the powerful wind of the wisdom prana
Doesn't blow them away, but clears them up like this

The illness and its painfulness have neither base nor root
Relax into it, fresh and uncontrived
Revealing dharmakaya way beyond all speech and thought
Don't shun them, pain and illness are basically good

What confusion takes to be taking place is negative forces' work
But it's all your own mind, simple, unborn, unceasing
Without anxiety or even worrying at all
Don't shun them, demons and gods are basically good

When the agony of illness strikes your four-fold elements
Don't grasp at its stopping, don't get angry when it won't improve
Such adversities have the flavor of bliss that's free of contagion's blight
These kleshas are not to be shunned, they're basically good

All of our joys and the pain we go through, all of our highs and lows
When realized, have no ground, they are our friends
Don't try to stop pain, don't try to be happy, be free of all hope and fear
Samsara is not to be shunned, it's basically good

And though this human life is plagued by the torments of falling ill
Don't think that's bad, don't plan to get around it
Then it will be your badge, your proof of conduct of equal taste

Your suffering's not to be shunned, it's basically good
The mind that's sunk in dullness and torpor, when realized for what it is
Is pure being pure of every imperfection
So, free of thinking you should be wishing to clear this all away
Don't shun your dense state of mind, it's basically good

Habitual patterns' imprints printed throughout beginningless time
Are the myriad doors illusion comes marching through
If you do not take them as true, don't meditate on them as empty
Don't shun your thoughts, they're basically good in themselves

The state of coemergence has no birth and knows no death
Knows nothing of arising or ceasing or staying somewhere
It's infinity, it's the vast expanse of the unconditioned state
Don't shun your death, it's basically good in itself

All eight of these things that are not to be shunned since they're basically good in themselves
Need a meditation which turns them into equal taste
They are the thought that comes from the heart of the uncle and nephew lord
They are the hammer that hammers down the host of maras

They are the practice that's put into practice by beggars like you and me
These are the tools that keep us in natural retreat
They are the bliss supreme that performs the two forms of benefit
You've mastered this from the beginning, old father, but you'd better put it into practice.

Composed by the Lord Gotsangpa

Lee

lovely!

Sue Moon

Hmmmmmmm

neil b

I was born one day before the end of the year if the metal tiger--in Feb of 1951. Wondering what that is...almost the year of the rabbit....hmmmm.

larry

Thank You for this wonderful blog post. I enjoyed it very much

Larry

Isabel Nobre

Superlative work, as usual, dear Robert! I also LOVED the text composed by the Lord Gotsangpa and nicely shared by William! Thanks to both!

Love,

Isabel

Wendy

Thanks again Robert,
This year could be a crazy one. It's all so tiring. Things in my neck of the waters are changing in the craziest of ways. There is so much homelessness, anger and frustration in the masses, it's all growing into it's own type of bomb.

Hope it explodes with TLC!! That's what we all need for ourselves and towards others.
But I just haven't seen it happen like that on this planet.

As The Four Non Blonds put it, "what's going on?!!"

With your articles Robert we can understand from above.

Wendy

WarriorLady

I'm a goat, and so far the year's been good!

My dad's an Earth Tiger.

Shoot me, now? Or will he have a good year? I'm hoping for the latter, for the love of God.

Robert

Hi william - Great meditation for cultivating detachment! In case any readers might be wondering about a term, it is said a Buddha has 3 "bodies" - the Dharmakaya is the limitless "Truth Body" of pure enlightenment; the Nirmanakaya is the "created body which manifests in time and space," and the Sambhogakaya is the "Body of mutual enjoyment," said to be "a body of bliss or clear light manifestation." So I suppose we're all cultivating these while we're in this classroom, riding the waves of Samsara with good cheer....

Hi Lee - Great stuff happens around here.

Hi Sue Moon - Aummmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm

Hi neil b - I've also been intrigued over the years if there isn't a fundamental difference in those born near the cusp of the animals, or even those whose charts "progress" into the next year's animal. You're definitely the "end of the end" in some ways.

Hi larry - You're most welcome.

Hi Isabel Nobre - Glad it's all working together quite nicely. Never know what's going to show up around here.

Hi Wendy - Yes, I suspect the Year of the Metal Tiger will see many things boil over in the public realm. Let's just hope the ignorant, fearful, violent beings don't overstep their bounds. Tenderness and care for what's true, good, and beautiful would seem to be needed antidotes for the barbaric behaviors of the dense ones. Least harm to the good, and may the violence be contained...

Hi WarriorLady - I believe the Year of the Tiger will be good for all Tigers everywhere! For that matter, it'll be better for those walking the Wisdom, the Way, and the Community than for those who aren't, even if things get a little wild from time to time.

Hi all - This Year of the Metal Tiger of course will give way to the Year of the Metal Rabbit (or Cat) in 2011, the Year of the Water Dragon in 2012, and the Year of the Water Snake in 2013. Far reaching speculations could come from contemplating these as a fluid sequence given the dynamic aspects coming down these years. "And the times they are a-changin'..."
