The Magical Play Of The Original State (无生的游戏)
Magical Play Of The Original State” is a Great Perfection work produced by HH
Dudjom Rinpoche during his youth after his dark retreat in a cave somewhere in
India. I summarize the gist of the work as the details can only be shown to
those who have received the empowerment:
“Amitabah (阿弥陀佛), Avalokitesvara (观音), Padmasambhava (莲花生), root lama (根本上是), Vajrakilaya (普巴金刚), Vajrayogini (金刚亥母) and dharma protectors are never existed. One should look into one’s
heart as the truth and joy is in one’s heart nowhere and nothing else. Knowing
this truth will bring eternal joy and liberation to all suffering. In another
words… you are on your own folks!”
so… what happen to those ‘idol worshippers’ in Buddhism since all deities are
essentially ‘empty’ and never have existed before?
This is a
serious claim as Amitabah and Avalokitesvara worship are deep rooted in
Mahayana tradition for thousand of years; denying any one would mean that nullifying
the merits accumulated by those faithful folks thus far.
days, scholar and rulers would prefer people to have blind faith as that would be
easier to control them. Hence Emperors of old China kept building Buddhist and
Taoist temples in the hope their subjects would not rebel against them; people
call this type of policy “the policy of ignorant” (愚民政策).
time, we see people building bigger temples as if building big temples become
an act of merit creation; but no one thinks that all these big infrastructures
need money to maintain. So, there are endless of fund raising and donation campaigns.
Oh, I heard
another voice said that Tantric Buddhism is NOT Buddhism proper as except the “Namo
Buddhaya” that refers to seeking refuge to Gautama Buddha and the rest of the deity
worships are from Hinduism.
best way to clear this dispute is by asking the Buddha which is the authentic
Buddhism that He has originally imparted to mankind. Then and again… The Buddha
remains silent since His nirvana. His
worshipper kept arguing till today and split into various fractions. It is perhaps a good idea for us to meditate
until everyone achieves nirvana too, then this world would be very peaceful
indeed as nothing is done hence nothing is produced.
