3 Statements That Strikes Essential Points (棰擊三要)
The teachings of Dzongchen (大圓滿) were first taught by Garab
Dorje (勝喜金剛) in Uddiyana. The essence of Garab Dorje’s
teaching is found in “The 3 Statements That Strikes Essential Points” (棰擊三要):
Understands one’s nature: View,
Believe with confident: Stability,
Meditate with firmness: Action.
Understands one’s nature: View
Our thoughts are faulty and
poisonous. These thoughts forms endless karmic seeds and they haunt us as
memories: good and bad. It is not too much to say that we, the human are formed
by our thought forms.
Believe with confident: Stability
Once we understand the
nature of our illusive thoughts, our thoughts are able to be purified with
reciting OM AH HUM or a single shout of PHAT! Once we have stabilized our
wandering mind; we will be able to achieve the stable state of Dharmakaya.
Meditate with firmness: Action
If we continue to meditate
with confident and firmness; our thoughts diminished and we will continue to
stay in Dharmakaya.
The above instructions are
practised together with Yangtik (仰的), where the practitioner meditates upon the
emptiness of space. Dzongchen instructions are typically short and to the
point; this type of meditative practices are not everyone’s cup of tea however.
