Astrology for 4/18/2015

Fun continues but the risk of being troubled is less today, except in scams of the heart. There’s a tendency to hear what you want to hear and to be bewitched by pretty words. All you really have to do is say “Let me think about it,” to any proposal and […]

Calling the Lama From Afar

Calling the Lama From Afar

The following is an excerpt from a teaching by Jetsunma Ahkon Lhamo called “Experiencing the Hook of Compassion”

In our tradition, in preliminary practice, we practice this “Calling the Lama from Afar,” and it’s a haunting practice. It will bring tears to one’s eyes if one practices it with a full heart and really […]

Astrology for 4/17/2015

Men are hard charging but the real action involves emotional satisfaction and the female principle today. “If you’re happy and you know it, clap your hands!” goes a stadium chant and you’ll gladly sing along and second the motion.

This is a guided meditation by Jetsunma Ahkon Lhamo.  In a teaching from the 1980s, Jetsunma taught about how this meditation helps one get passed the feeling of separation, and begin to imitate the radiant qualities of one’s true nature – light and compassion.

In her words, “Separation is the cause of all trauma, all pain, any grief that you have ever suffered anywhere, or at anytime.  Anything that has ever hurt you or been a bother to you has been because you believe yourself to be separate from everything.  Your true nature is Absolute Union or Oneness. The true nature that you are is light.

Effective prayer is about imitating that radiance.  Through imitation of your true nature, you come to realize your true nature.  You stop thinking about separation, and you stop buying into judgment, and you get out of limitations.  Effective prayer is centering into that Absolute reality that is the core of what you are.”
