Today, I am very grateful to the Natural Dharma Fellowship sangha for their warm welcome. Here are the slides that I shared.
. And a few other resources follow below.
Chagdud Tulku Rinpoche
Throughout my many lives and until this moment whatever virtue I have accomplished, including the merit generated by this practice and all that I will ever attain, this I offer for the welfare of sentient beings.
May sickness, war, famine, and suffering be decreased for every being, while their wisdom and compassion increase in this and every future life.
May I clearly perceive all experiences to be as insubstantial as the dream fabric of the night and instantly awaken to perceive the pure wisdom display in the arising of every phenomenon.
May I quickly attain enlightenment in order to work ceaselessly for the liberation of all sentient beings.
O brothers and sisters,
You who have mastered the teaching—
If you recognise me,
Queen of the Lake of Awareness,
both emptiness and form,
know that I live in the minds
of all beings who live.
Know that I live in the body of mind
and the field of the senses,
that the twelve kinds of matter
are only my bones and my skin.
We are not two,
yet you look for me outside;
when you find me within yourself,
your own naked mind,
that Single Awareness
will fill all worlds.
Then the joy of the One
will hold you like a lake—
its fish with gold- seeing eyes
will grow many and fat.
Hold to that knowledge and pleasure,
and the Creative will be your wings.
You will leap through the green meadows
of earthly appearance,
enter the sky- fields, and vanish.
