AKASH NAVAYANA BUDDHIST ASSOCIATION ONLINE REFUGE WEBSITE
Since the Lord Buddha's view of dependent origination precludes taking refuge for oneself as an isolated monad, the aimless compassion manifests spontaneously as an intrinsic component of Enlightened mind's luminous clarity, radiating bliss, inseparable from the vast unobstructed opening space (absolute Bodhicitta). Relative Bodhcitta has two components: aspirational and applied.
Aspirational Bodhcitta is generating the wish that all sentient beings be liberated from the sufferings of cyclic existence (samsara), and attaining good fortune of a precious human birth, healthy with all our senses intact; the love and protection of our kind parents; to meet the holy Dharma in a fortunate Kalpa; to be able to take refuge and teachings with the holy realized Lamas; and to have the leisure time to practice the jewel of Dharma in a country with the freedom to engage one's faith.
We naturally wish that all our parent beings realize this supreme joy. Om gate gate paragate parasamgate bodhi swaha. We vow to lead all beings to the shore of enlightenment, through the allows a faith born of stainless reasoning to penetrate deeply in the purity of the Buddha's teachings until one's realization ripens and no trace of doubt in regards to the view, meditation, and action.
The giving of the Dharma, the protection of refuge and mundane sheltering, the saving of lives and material charity.
The motivation to always benefit sentient beings through the accumulation of virtuous activity and to abstain from non-virtuous activity.
The practice of patience in our daily lives, while meditating, and when receiving teachings.
The belief, courage, and volition that we can accomplish the state of Buddhahood for our self and all sentient beings; motivating us now, in the present moment, to practice strongly for our time of death is unknown.
This is the daily and ultimately every moment process by
which the three poisons of ignorance, desire, and aversion are transformed into the experiential modalities of vast unobstructed opening space inseparable from its dynamic of luminosity, bliss, and clarity; these transform into Dharmakaya, Sambhogakaya, and Nirmanakaya. This meditative openness (samadhi) or the yogic experience of meditative absorption was made paramount by the Lord Buddha.
The first five of the six paramitas, are considered as skillful means (upaya). The sixth paramitas, wisdom (jnana), is perfect realization of primordial awareness i.e. the Buddha mind. The six paramitas are expressed in one's daily life and then become the living validation of the Buddha's teaching.
