PS - Here's something I really appreciate:The Six Vajra Verses
Although apparent phenomena
manifest as diversity
yet this diversity is non-dual,
and of all the multiplicity
of individual things that exist
none can be confined in a limited concept.
Staying free from the trap of any attempt
to say it's "like this", or "like that",
it becomes clear that all manifested forms
are aspects of the infinite formless,
and, indivisible from it,
Seeing that everything is self-perfected
from the very beginning,
the disease of striving for any achievement
comes to an end of it's own accord,
and just remaining in the natural state as it is,
the presence of non-dual contemplation
continuously, spontaneously arises.
The Six Vajra Verses, or more literally, the "Six Vajra Lines", since the original Tibetan consists of only six lines, contain a perfect resume of the Dzogchen teachings. This translation is by Brian Beresford and John Shane, in a fairly free rendering following the oral explanation of Chogyal Namkhai Norbu.
The Six Vajra Verses are from the Trashipai Pal Rigpai Khujug Tantra, "Fortune-Bringing Cuckoo of Non-dual Awareness (rigpa) Tantra".

This is the radiance of the embodimentof emptiness and clarity, appearing in the manner of a vasebody with face and hands. Abiding as a spontaneowly presentorb of light, each color of compassion is lucid.”Regarding the practice...I will surely surprise you, my main "practice" is Bhakti yoga. A wonderful book on the topic is the Narada Bhakti Sutra. If you have that kind of state just for a minute you have everything yet nothing. Your thinking mind disappears and you are perfectly satisfied by giving your self to all that is. The more practical side of life for me is treckho and thogal and the Sun is also a good friend. :) Another great practice is the Shingon type Morning Star Meditation.One more important thing: although we may meet many hardships on the way we must never give up.Sorry for my English. :)Love,Mardukboy
