Instructions on key points
of the Great Seal, Mahamudra, of absolute meaning
"The vision of naked awareness"
I bow to the all-Creating King, the glorious teacher Vajradhara, which demonstrates the inherent wisdom of one's own awareness-knowledge!
After bowing, I will explain the oral instructions on the great Seal.
Since this Supreme king of men, the Victorious one, has shown a state of perfect liberation, the gate of the Teaching acceptable to the mind, which is (characterized by a certain) faith, level, and ability, is shown as the manifestation of an unthinkable chariot. If you want to practice and instruct the great Seal of the final meaning, you should practice the preliminary, basic, and final (teachings).
Preliminary (part). Exercises that were held earlier. Freedom and gain are difficult to gain and easy to destroy. The cause and the fruit are unmistakable. Understanding all States of cyclic existence as suffering, turn away from attachment (to them). By strong renunciation, connect the stream of mind with the Holy Teaching. The refuge that really liberates from being is the three Higher ones that dissolve into the three Roots. The vow not to give up anything because of (your own) life, is born from the heart with faith and your understanding! Understanding the suffering of cyclical existence, meditate constantly on the three types of enlightened attitudes, directing inexhaustible love to the living beings-the parents. Showing the clarity of inherent wisdom, (perform) the ritual of remorse-regret for veils, pernicious and obstacles. (Use) the friendly, which gives birth to a deep essence in the flow (of the mind). Work hard in methods that accumulate spiritual merit.
Basic (practice). (Here,) when you stay focused on the object of contemplation (there are) four (points): view, meditation, behavior, and fruit.
The view is the Great Seal of the Foundation (which is). The original sphere of equality of cyclic existence and Nirvana is unchangeable, free from contamination, mind - constructions and signs-symbols. It is not composite, it covers everything. Transcended the ways of speech and mind. Self-awareness-inherent wisdom as the great object of practice, accumulation of merit, power of listening, speech of unerring achievement-realization, and blessing-are all understanding.
Meditation is the essential path of practice. Form your understanding in a nine-part way. By the power of sincere devotion and three types of unfeeling faith in the master - teacher, the jewel of fulfillment of thoughts, purposefully fulfill your prayers and receive four initiations. When mixed (your) mind and mind (teacher) be in nastartovani (state), nature, fresh, natural. Stop the three-time mind-building, hopes and fears.
In shamatha-pacification, practice increasing in size. Whatever arises, rest in the liberation of ascension as an entity-nature.
By means of the vipashyana weapon, the root and base are cut off. (Then) you will meet naked and unshakeable awareness-leading. (Rest with) relaxation in a vast (state) without fixation and without meditation. In nonconceptual bliss and clarity, do not distinguish between taste. There is no need to discard in perfect nature when emptiness is experienced. Cut off attachment to the account-size when the manifestations are experienced. Look at nature, which is free from three or four (aspects). When you are not in the formal (practice of meditative) balance, such experiences also occur. Be (alert) like a thief that doesn't move (anywhere). This is an illustration of the inherent wisdom of the enlightened one. The great perfection of the absolute meaning of all teachings is the Great Seal that is free from extremes.
Behavior. Whatever arises, combine with the river of awareness. Guard the jewel of wish fulfillment-heartfelt obligations. Have the nature of emptiness and charity-heartiness. (Be) the Treasury that accompanies the enlightened mood. The result is fruit. A cyclic existence does not exist for discarding. Nirvana-peace does not exist for attainment. The veils and delusions of the perceiver and the perceived are cleared on their own level. Keep your own awareness-conduct - at your own level. This is how the great Seal of the fruit is indicated.
Completion. Increasing the elimination of obstacles and errors in helping (the establishment of) stability in concentration. Once you get used to it, you will practice without interruption. Drop your pride and cultivate the signs of attainment. Stay, knocking down the eight (worldly) Dharma's. Eliminate the roots in the field of attachment to clinging to the self. Burn the understanding of clinging to the objects of the six clusters (consciousnesses). In particular, meditate on the master as the embodiment of all the Enlightened ones. By diligent signs you will also find (the fruits) of prayers and requests. The Holy protector, who is called with fervor, will come to the heart from the opening of Brahma. Blazing Majesty as the light of Great Bliss, unite in the body all the Victorious. Through the greatness of the manifestations of the light of the three vajras, the three gates are purified. Because of this, by the power of burning faith and devotion of uncontaminated Great Bliss, dissolve the master in the light. Having mixed with yourself, stay in balance in the mixing of (your) mind and the mind (of the teacher). All shining and sounding phenomena outside of meditation are found as the Seal of the three realizations. This song of pure faith is the heart-essence of all instruction. This is the Great Seal (revealed) by the power of kindness. Let this method and understanding instantly remove obstacles and achieve the highest real achievements! Because of this, by adhering to the key points with sincere faith, you will gain all the goals!
If you can practice (according to) the explanations of the path of liberation, the great Seal, then you will realize innumerable great texts of attainment (realisation), whether sutras, mantras, or tantras, like one standing on the shore of the ocean. And even in this state, you will spread the Teaching, the activity-action, the great meditation. Having spread, you yourself, impelled by the great qualities, will manifest later (the level) of non-return. Made in the great Buddhist retreat center Zurdo Lord Khakhyab Dorje.
