If we accomplish our mission, the elevator to room one will go out of order; the elevator to room two will start working; and we can use it to enter and live in the palace chamber.

Room one is a prison cell; room two is the palace chamber of a Buddha. Serkong Rinpoche loved to use this image. And that is all that is happening. They comprise emanations of Sambhogakaya in grosser enlightening forms, such that snuttara persons with the karma to meet them are able to receive anuttaar from them. We then generate from that level the subtle forms known in some anuttarayoga systems as illusory bodies.

Then, we sabotage the mechanism so that it stops giving rise to what we want to get rid of. Number one and number two are analogous in the following sense.


The grosser of the two is a Nirmanakaya, a Corpus of Emanations. If I look at this watch, for instance, and the time it shows, I cannot look at this object with the same mind in two opposite ways. It is not purification or cleansing in the sense of chasing away interferences from death, bardo, and rebirth, like chasing away harmful spirits or disturbing qualities from flowers that make us sneeze.

In addition, when we are experiencing problems, we think in terms of taking on all the sufferings of others who are experiencing similar anutfara of problems. This comes about through developing on our mental continuums true pathway minds or true paths that lead to their stopping.

We are a prisoner in the cell. We find out the weakest, vital point of the whole mechanism.

Buddhism is filled with a variety of methods for ending the continuity of something, so it is helpful to have some idea of the various approaches that are yoya. For example, grasping for truly established existence and the realization of voidness — the total absence of truly established existence — are mutually exclusive.

The further existence that these karmic impulses bring about are bardo in between rebirth existence, conception existence, predeath existence, and death existence. In addition, we are using a pathway mind of practice that is also analogous to both one and two and which enables us to get down to yantra common foundation.

Several different systems made their way to the Himalayas and Tibet. The mental states that bring about true stoppings are those with nonconceptual cognition of voidness.

The structure is for our mental continuum to go down to its subtlest level and then to manifest in a subtle and a gross form.

We do this in order to purify our mental continuums from experiencing ever again the true sufferings of ordinary death, bardo, and rebirth. The Tibetan word Nyingma literally means old traditions of Tantra and Sarma means the new traditions of Tantra. Mind you, it is only nonconceptual cognition of voidness that gets rid of the seeds completely. The countless number of physical forms in which a Buddha appears is of two types: In this way, may nobody ever have to suffer again from hepatitis.
