MESSAGE FROM GUAN YIN ON TANTRA AND DEITY YOGA
MESSAGE FROM GUAN YIN
Tantra तन्त्र simply means “to weave” from the root tan meaning expand and
tra meaning instrument. This also means union, unity or unity consciousness.
The essence of the path of Tantra in Tibetan Vajrayana Yoga is “to weave method and wisdom”. The method here refers to bodhicitta, seeking
buddhahood for the benefit of all sentient beings and the wisdom refers to wisdom realizing emptiness.
THE YOGA METHOD OF GUAN YIN, THE BUDDHA OF COMPASSION
In deity yoga practice we first meditate on and dissolve everything into emptiness. Then from within emptiness, the very clear mind that realizes emptiness arises in the form of the meditation deity, Our Mother, Guan Yin. This is explained below.
THE HEART SUTRA
gate gate pāragate pārasaṃgate bodhi svāhā
“go, go, go beyond, go thoroughly beyond, and establish yourself in enlightenment”
THE SHARED HEART
The foundation of Our Mother, Guan Yin’s path is compassion.
Simply put, our loving kindness in our relationships (with our self and others) gives Her Delight.
Loving kindness directed towards ourself or others inspires Our Higher Self and because we exist in the Shared Heart with Our Mother it inspires Her to Divine Delight in Her Children.
If you truly look at every connection as an opportunity for wisdom (learning from) and liberation (giving to) then the Higher Self’s Shared Heart expands with every communication which is in effect an energy exchange of love.
When you give pure love to me, for example, Your Higher Self IS GIVING my Higher Self energy light and love, helping it expand into a new reality, that of the Divine Shared Heart with Our Mother.
THE PERFECTION OF WISDOM
Insight into emptiness is a deep wisdom. When you understand emptiness you understand that the self you have created is also empty, devoid of existence. When you empty your self, the nature of the mind is revealed as clear and luminous and into this clear luminous limitless light Our Mother is able to BE.
The potential for attaining the qualities of the Buddha of Compassion, Our Mother Guan Yin, lies naturally within all of us.
When we grasp at our self and existence we distort perception of reality.
By practicing deity yoga, the yoga method of Guan Yin, where we visualize ourself as Her, we cultivate our innate mind of clear light and understand the true meaning of emptiness WHICH IS TO LET DIVINITY IN.
INITIATION INTO THE YOGA METHOD OF GUAN YIN
The true nature of Our Mother is compassion, bodhicitta, seeking
buddhahood for the benefit of all sentient beings. This is the right motivation for initiation of this energy process.
If you have another deity such as Lord Sananda (Yeshua’s Higher Self) or Lady Nada (Mary Magdalene’s Higher Self) or Mother Mary or Lord Krishna you can still follow this same process, choosing that deity as Your Mother or Father.
In deity yoga practice, visualization and imagination are very important so let go of your ordinary perception and identity and cultivate the perception and identity of the meditation deity.
The Practice is as follows.
One taste of emptiness dissolves all form. Both the meditator, you, and the meditation deity, Guan Yin, are devoid of form and existence. The emptiness of our self allows your self to become an empty vessel, devoid of form, the same as the deity you are meditating upon. The limitless light will fill an empty vessel just as One that is still will know the truth. This is the same essence as the phrase “Be Still and Know God” Psalm 46:10
The Deity of Sound
Out of our experience of emptiness arises a sound, the resonance of emptiness.
The Deity of Syllables
Out of the pure mind arises grains of gold.
The Deity of Form
Out of the pure mind arises a meditation based on bodhicitta and emptiness. When we emanate light and make offerings to all the Krishnas, Christs, buddhas and bodhisattvas, ascended masters, angels and lighted beings, we can offer our own spiritual practice which is the highest of offerings. This is something we actually have to offer that pleases and delights Our Mother. It also gives a meaning to our meditation in that we are taking on the activities of Our Mother in bringing about others welfare.
The Deity of Mudra
We now arise in the full form of Our Mother
The Deity of Sign
We invoke and absorb the wisdom beings, Our Mother, making an offering to Her families and requesting the empowerment. The empowering deity, Our Mother , dissolves into us, crowning our body with the halo of compassion, love and light.
There are many manifestations of Our Mother. She is unlimited and so is your experience. Be blessed and love, be compassionate towards all beings.
WE are Krishna, WE are The Christ, WE are the Buddha.
Seek refuge in Krishna, the Buddha, the Christ Within.There is Our Salvation.
