Mind Only

These style of practices have more of Buddhisty flair. A distinct awakening flavor.

Through endless kalpas [aeons/times] without beginning, whatever you do, wherever you are, that’s your real mind, that’s your real Buddha. This mind is the Buddha says the same thing. Beyond this mind you’ll never find another Buddha. To search for enlightenment or nirvana beyond this mind is impossible. The reality of your own self-nature, the absence of cause and effect, is what’s meant by mind. Your mind is nirvana. You might think you can find a Buddha or enlightenment somewhere beyond the mind, but such a place doesn’t exist.

Bodhidharma’s Bloodstream Sermon1

Where are you going to look? Where are you going to go? India? China? A new New Age Center down the street with those cool people with tattoos and hair? At a civil rights parade? Is that enlightenment? Intellectual enlightenment perhaps, but not Buddhist enlightenment.

I don’t care if you can drink a cup of water if 4 seconds the mind is more instantaneous than that. The mind is nowhere and anywhere you go. It’s always there. It’s what looks! It’s who speaks! It’s what thinks! Die? What doesn’t ‘exist’ doesn’t die. You, your true nature won’t die.

Salvation? An offering, if you can receive it.
