Consciousness Stream, Mind Stream.

Mind Stream.

Mind Stream (citta-santāna) in Buddhist philosophy is the moment-to-moment continuum (Sanskrit: saṃtāna) of sense impressions and mental phenomena, which is also described as continuing from one life to another.

In Buddhism Mind itself is aware, Consciousness Stream is aware, experiences itself.


What is Consciousness?

Consciousness is made of many parts, as in Consciousness article.

Got insights that we experience pure mind parts through impure ones, and that experience is whole, all of these parts included.

Thus Reality & Wisdom reaches through veils of Store Consciousness with our Karma, through Klesha, Deluded Consciousness - through Subconsciousness, then through Reason & Senses.


We are One.

i think we are interconnected, we are connected on deeper levels of Consciousness with others.

That way inspiration reaches us, we are guided toward Enlightenment.

i think it's a part of our Karma, to have mind contact with Our Teachers, with friends & with other beings.


Inspiration.

Citta-saṃtāna (Sanskrit), literally 'the stream of mind', is the stream of succeeding moments of mind or awareness. It provides a continuity of the personality in the absence of a permanently abiding 'self' (ātman), which Buddhism denies. The mindstream provides a continuity from one life to another, akin to the flame of a candle which may be passed from one candle to another:

In Buddhism Inspiration is Methods Transmission, it's how we are guided to fully realize our potential, to reach Enlightenment. One candle can light many others, inspire beings for greatness, support in a way for Enlightenment, if they wish.


Reincarnation.

With death & rebirth being just mind states of drastic change, we seek next lives in which our karma ripens, in which our wishes have best chance of coming true - including the wishes for Liberation & Enlightenment.

Can one being inspire many? Is it possible to reincarnate in many beings?

i think yes, but there's also the main reincarnation, as well, if i am not wrong.

Totality of Love.

Introduction.

Word: 'Totality' in this context does not imply dictatorship & tyranny of a couple, does not imply world's conquest, enslavement & domination by a pair.

Totality of Love implies that everyone is interconnected, part of largel whole, part of Total Experience where happiness of couples radiates outwards inspiring others who also share happiness.


Striving for Totality.

'Love is when one thinks more of giving than receiving. It is the deep wish to become happy with someone and includes the ongoing mindset of wanting to benefit them. One is fundamentally positive and open to what is new, and thus every moment becomes rich & joyful. In the face of love, everything seems possible, beyond all limitations.

Usually love is experienced as very personal and one-of-a-kind. Though most people who are falling in love while looking at wonderful face believe it to be unique experience, if one takes a closer look at the feeling of being in love and the kinds of behaviors it brings forth, it becomes clear that basically similar steps and aspects are at work. When opening up to someone, one experiences a deep bond with the partner and will enjoy resulting good mood, which radiates onto others and one's environment as well. Once struck by love, one realizes what was always true - that happiness is greater when shared. All things are parts of totality. Everything is interconnected and happiness in conjunction with others, and living this is blissfull. Thus circles of happy people extend from loving couples. Whether they are friends or parents who bask in the relationship, or neighbors who think the couple are a nice fit, all experience the benefit and may open up more readily in their own lives.

If a rich and connecting love grows, and especially if the couples' sharing includes abstract levels beyond sentimentality, strong experiences will increasingly be seen as beyond-personal. This view breaks the tendency to waste precious time, that could be used for inner growth, with expectations and daydreams, or to become dependent on passing experiences. If one is willing to see life as a path of development, it becomes natural to share one's good days, and what one learned from any bad ones, with others. If one can additionally avoid especially disturbing emotions, a vast and conscious space will unfold between and around one's experiences.

-- Quoted from 'Buddha & Love' book by Lama Ole Nydahl, chapter five: 'The Secret of Great Love'.


Wishes.

May all beings have happines and causes of happiness,

May they be free from suffering and the cause of suffering,

May they always experience true happiness, which is totally free from suffering,

May they remain in the great equanimity, which is beyond attachment and aversion.

HH Buddha Karmapa 17th Trinley Thaye Dorje.

This blog's author wishes to develop Atemi / Atemi is Martial Arts-related word ... it means: 'attack on vulnerable points' / on Energy Fields, including attacking Thoughtshape Forms & Spiritual Auras formed by Sects, as well as attacking Powerfields around Sectarian traitors. This blog's author thinks that Inner Enemies & Traitors are far more dangerous than any of external enemies - so him being Anti-Sectarian is the most important Service for HH Buddha Karmapa 17th Trinley Thaye Dorje.

Powerfields, Events & Beings.

Introduction.

Powerfield / Mandala / principle can be demonstrated on an example of a snowflake.

Each of snowflakes is different, but there are similarities.

There's central point from which energy emerges to outer parts.

With beings involvement it's the same - people gather in a place, powerfield forms then dissipates.

There's central energy which radiates outwards & makes events happen in Reality.

Source: Mandale - pola mocy buddów, Lama Ole Nydahl.


Blog author's insights & comments.

i am not an expert, so Wisdom & Constructive Critic are Welcome.

My insights are not always the truth.


... since a while ago had insights regarding Mandalas, Powerfields.

... insights told me that when a being accumulates enough of wisdom & merit, mandala can be granted.

... without wisdom & merit, beings won't wish to support being in the center, powerfield won't form.

it can be that meritorous, wise being becomes surrounded by other beings that share methods & goals.

Various beings have differing methods, skills & powers, that can be used in a Powerfield - and common work of many spiritual beings can make even miracles happen.

Meritorous, Wise being is in the center, and send transmission & blessing outward, to other Mandala Participants.

This affect beings, energy flow, blessing trasmission flow, and might result in events happening in reality. i think in a way, being in a center asks for support of achieving certain goals from beings in the outer. without karmic debts repayment, without favours for favours, merit won't be accumulated and mandala won't be granted. without wisdom mandala won't form either, as it's too irresponsible to grant unwise person such great reality-affecting power.

There are various purpose-oriented Powerfields, one Mandala-Form can enhance Enlightened Love, another Mandala-Form can help Protecting beings, etc.

... had insights that when i experienced heating, freezing, fear & paralysis in a Buddhist center - it was just example of Buddhist Power for me to laern. had insight that this was how a Powerfield affected my mind, speech & body.

... had insights that Mandala Powerfields can evolve in Form & purpose in response to Mantras, either in Mind or aloud, as well as to Visualizations.

... had insights that Powerfields work by assuming certain Forms, for certain well-defined purposes - and not by whims & irrevelant wishes of a being in the center. Had insights that such wishes however, can be causes for new Forms being granted - if one is persistent, responsible, wise & accumulates merit in related activities. i am not sure if detrimential wishes can mature to the level of being granted related Mandala Forms. i think that even if that's possible, there are karmic consequences, situational & other considerations, as well as possibility of such Form-related Power transforming or being completely revoked by one's superiors in Buddhist Ranks.

... had insights that Mandala Powerfields are interlocked, being b1 might be a center of mandala m1, and outer part of mandalas m2, m4, m5, etc ... Being b2 might be a center of mandala m2, and outer part of mandalas m1, m3, m5, ...

... had insights that beings are connected via Mind & Space, do not have to be together in the same part of physical space for Mandala to affect events & Reality. My experiences tell me however, that most powerful blessings & powerfields can be felt where many Buddhists & meritorous Teachers gather together. After such meeting, for example - meditating together, or listening to a Buddhist Lecture - beings go their ways, and make reality what they got from such a meeting, making reality-affecting events happen by their lives & work.




-=- Mandala. -=-




-=- Interlocking Mandalas. -=-



Insights about Mantras & Visualizations.

... had insights & experiences that mantras appear in mind after a longer while of practice automatically - which mantras appear depend on one's decisions & reaction to mind states still.

... had insights that visualizations appear in mind in response to mantras, and later just after decisions, reaction to mind states.

... had insights that mantras & visualizations help to hold enlightening view in mind, to awaken & radiate one's mind qualities.

... had insights, read buddhist texts & lessons that perhaps imply that one's perception, one's view affects one's Reality, affect how one experiences karma arriving from the store consciousness. One's view, reaction & intention affect current reality & what we seed in our store consciousness to arrive in our lives later.


Insights about Energy Emanations.

... had insights that Powerfield is not the same as Energy Field human beings radiate. Every human being radiates energy, but not every human being has Powerfield.

... had insights & initial experience / probably blessing / that as one speaks mantras & visualizes, one's powerfield start to affect one's energy field.

... had insights that points in space around a human can be connected with other points in space, as in quantum entanglement of quantum physics.

... had insights that points in space around a human being can be 'a link' with points in space around other being; had insights that with proper mantras & visualizations, these 'links' are formed with other beings in one's Powerfield.

... had insights that these 'linked points' are close to observers, to their minds - therefore these help to form mind-connection between beings.

... had insights that these 'linked points' can radiate energies as well.

... had insights that as one speaks mantras & visualizes, these 'linked points' enhance & form energy field around a being, can make oneself & others feel blessing.

... had insights that these 'linked points' & energy radiating from these can affect one's perception, view, affect how one experiences & reacts to incoming karma, how one perceives reality, how one seeds causes for future, as well.


Wishes.

i wish for Enlightened & Artful Love with a Buddhist woman, and i know which.

i wish for Mandala Form that enhances such Love in me & others - but not against their will.

i wish for other Mandala Forms, but not at all cost:
- Four Buddha Activities - related Mandala Forms,
- Powerfully Protecting Body Paralysis Forms - both Subtle & Minimalistic, as well as Powerful, affecting whole body except for heart & other vital organs,
- Powerfully Protecting Atemi Martial Arts Mandala Forms, that Protect by attacking vulnerable points in threat's Mind, Speech, Energy & Body.
- perhaps other forms in future / i'll edit this article when worthwhile ideas arise /

in case of more dangerous forms, i prefer to have just a 'vote', letting my Buddhist Superiors i have a Mind Contact with - decide when Form's Power activates. i think i am too unwise to endanger Enlightenment & lives of myself & others to decide on that alone, for now.


May all beings have happines and causes of happiness,

May they be free from suffering and the cause of suffering,

May they always experience true happiness, which is totally free from suffering,

May they remain in the great equanimity, which is beyond attachment and aversion.

Rimé Movement & San Francisco.

About.

Literally, ‘rimé’ means a ‘non-sectarian’ or ‘non-biased’ view. While some people may think this is related to the idea of all systems being equal, it is actually focused on recognising the value and benefit of multiple points-of-view.

http://rimebuddhism.com/about/rime-philosophy/
https://rimekalachakra.org/about/


Blog author's comments.

... Rimé movement is also a key for me to bring together Teachings of Shamar Rinpoche with
Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche's Teachings, as well as with the Kalachakra Practice, with
Lama Ole Nydahl's San Francisco 1995's message & with other parts of my Way.

... i am interrested in Kalachakra Teachings as time progress, for now i am not ready for these.

... i wish to support 'Brilliant Moon' film with my arts as well. this film is about Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche's life, one of Lama Ole Nydahl Teachers' life.

Taming a Horse, Taming Mind.




Introduction.

Years ago, i wished to help in setting-up conditions for HH Shamar Rinpoche's swift return, to strive to be worthy of Protecting Him on the Mahakala Way.

... continuing this wish, i am trying to learn about His Way, from HH Shamar Rinpoche's lessons - to realize them in my life, furthering His goals that way.


'Stages of Progress.

At first the meditator's mind is like a wild horse, yet by engaging in the consistent practice of calm abiding meditation it can gradually become tame. Eventually the mind becomes clear and completely free of agitation.

In some instruction texts, the agitation in the mind is first compared to a cascading waterfall, later with the gently flowing currents of a broad river, and finally with the still water of a clear lake on a day without wind.

-- Shamar Rinpoche, Boundless Awakening, pg 6.'

Photo was originally uploaded to 'Shamar Rinpoche' facebook page by Jigme Wangyal, May 8th, 2015.


Wishes.

i wish for Enlightened & Artful Love with a Buddhist woman, and i know which.

i wish to support modestly better reincarnation of HH Shamar Rinpoche, to help in protecting
HH Shamar Rinpoche as well, on Mahakala Way.

i wish other beings who wish to do so as well, are able to do so as well.


May all beings have happines and causes of happiness,

May they be free from suffering and the cause of suffering,

May they always experience true happiness, which is totally free from suffering,

May they remain in the great equanimity, which is beyond attachment and aversion.

Pondering on Mind States & Reincarnation, Constructive Critic Welcome.

About.

i do not know everything, but i think ... in this article i share my insights & thoughts, constructive critic is requested & welcome.

... we are Mind, not bodies, it's Mind that has body not the other way.

When we Buddhists talk that beings have Mind, we think that Mind experiences illusion of being contained in body, affected by Reality.

In Buddhism, the Mind itself, the Consciousness itself is aware, from each moment to each moment it experiences Reality as being with body, affected by laws of physics & other conditions.

What we experience from moment to moment is our Karma, drawn from Store Consciousness.

When conditions hold, causes can ripen, wishes from past lives can fulfill or make steps toward fulfillment.

From each moment to each moment our Mind state changes, as in an interactive film. How we react to what we experience decides on next moments, as well as seed Karma into Store Consciousness for our future.

Experiencing Reality as Continuous is an Illusion, as there are Discrete Moments of Awareness. In Mathematics, word 'Discrete' means non-continuous, as in a serie of points instead of a continuous line. In these points in time-flow, in these points of awareness & reaction, our Mind state changes on a moment-to-moment basis.


What happens when we die?

If we experience Reality as driving car, then having accident our body might die and Mind state change into one associated with bardo ... and progresses through bardo until it is reborn again.

Mind does not die, just changes a Mind state, sometimes in a small way, sometimes in drastic way - as in the moments of death & rebirth.


When a being is conceived, Mind connects with the new body, it becomes a living body.

i think there are main incarnations that affect body in the strongest way, as well as minor incarnations - resulting from inspiration from many sources.

i think that when main incarnation reaches Enlightenment, other, minor incarnations are strongly pulled that way as well.


What decides of choice of a body for the main incarnation?

i think beings in bardo seek to be reincarnated in a place & time most well suited for fulfilling one's wishes made in past lives.

Thus karma decides on how our body looks, what are our mental tendencies, which family raises us, and what are our social surroundings & wealth, among other things.


i think that when a minor incarnation is experiencing good karma, successess, also the main incarnation benefits.


Wishes.

i wish for Enlightened & Artful Love with a Buddhist woman, and i know which.

i wish to support modestly better reincarnation of HH Shamar Rinpoche, to help in protecting
HH Shamar Rinpoche as well, on Mahakala Way.

i wish other beings who wish to do so as well, are able to do so as well.

May all beings have happines and causes of happiness,

May they be free from suffering and the cause of suffering,

May they always experience true happiness, which is totally free from suffering,

May they remain in the great equanimity, which is beyond attachment and aversion.

Reducing Needs, Reducing Tastes for Sensual Pleasures.

About.

Recently i've listened a Buddhist Lecture by Bhikkhu Samahita on Vegetarianism & 32 Marks of a Great Man.

Conclusions & wishes came after that lecture:


i wish to reduce - but not completely - my sexual activity.

i still wish for Enlightened & Artful Love with a Buddhist woman, and i know which.

i certainly do not wish to engage into any sexual activity with other women or men than her.

i wish to give her love, sex & kids if she wishes for that, i wish to enjoy it all but without excessive craving.

i wish to be aware, conscious of related pleasures & joys without seeding appetite for these in excess.


i wish to eat in a way that Buddha does, being aware, conscious of taste without seeding appetite for appetite in excess.

i wish to be thin, to have no fat on belly, to be handsome, gentle, nice, compassionate, loving & attractive for a Buddhist woman i Love & others.


i wish to offer sensual pleasures to HH Buddha Karmapa 17th Trinley Thaye Dorje, as in the Mandala Offering Practice.

i wish to reduce craving for sensual pleasures, to make negative feelings disappear, to not seed needs for joys in excess, as well.


May all beings have happines and causes of happiness,

May they be free from suffering and the cause of suffering,

May they always experience true happiness, which is totally free from suffering,

May they remain in the great equanimity, which is beyond attachment and aversion.

Deep Wisdom, Simplicty & Compassion that Shines on many Levels.

About.

There are Wisdom Lessons coming from Lamas & Buddhas, there are Wisdom Lessons of Catholic Church & of Spiritual Minorities.

There are those who wish to learn in the Sincere Way, to be beneficial, to support, to inspire themselves & other beings.

These people rise Spiritually as time progress.


Yet there are those who learn lessons in a superficial way, as is optimal for their gains & needs, with least amount of effort from themselves.

There are people who explain that they are allowed to abuse others, to gain benefits just because they are going to church regularly, or just because they meditate while others don't or can't.

These people often justify their weakness, their egoism & laziness with 'greater good', as well as with need to feed their families.

These people are becoming more corrupt as time progress.


Many beings are beneficial & supporting even that they have families, having family & worldly needs should not be excuse for spiritual degradation, egoism & laziness.


i respect people who keep foundations of their spiritual practices for whole life, who keep simple wisdoms & compassion that they understand ever deeper.

i respect people whose wisdoms are not detached from purest of foundations, so simple that can be explained both for kids, as well as for adults.

i call such lessons as 'shining wisdom & compassion on many levels', with each of deeper levels of understanding still being true, compassionate & wise.


Wishes.

i wish to learn, understand deeply & share spiritual lessons that are shining wisdom & compassion on many levels.

i wish others wishing for that to be able to do so as well.


May all beings have happines and causes of happiness,

May they be free from suffering and the cause of suffering,

May they always experience true happiness, which is totally free from suffering,

May they remain in the great equanimity, which is beyond attachment and aversion.

San Francisco 2018.

About.

As my life goes on, i have moments of spiritual rises & falls.

Today i understood many things, identified friends & enemies.

i discovered inner enemy in my Mind, perhaps a being i have mind-contact with - someone who took many bribes from many beings, including from Ogyen Trinley Dorje's Sangha, a traitor, Sectarian enemy within our Sangha.

i discovered former friend from Catholic Church in my mind, wishing to convert me by force, against my will - while disgracting to feed her own ego & pride.

i try to protect my friends outside Buddhism as well.

i have many enemies & rivals, i called in mind for support.

i spoke mantras that develop wisdom, compassion, love, protection, as well as crown, thrid eye, heart & throat chakras, as well as other means.

i read the Lama Ole Nydahl's San Francisco 1995 message again.

i wished to use jewelry i wear - not only Buddhist jewelry, it's also Lama Ole Nydhal's San Francisco message to not be fanatical - as well as my inner development as tools for Enlightened & Artful Love - where Art includes 'Art of Magick & Light', Martial Arts, Beautiful Arts, Art of Dying, other Arts as well.

i felt Powerfully Protecting Powerfield around me, coming from Powerful Buddhist Occultist that i learn from - perhaps i've identified source truthfully.

i wish to keep my word in full, according to the priorities of Enlightened & Artful Love - fighting across many lives if neccessary.

i think inner enemies & traitors are far worse that any outside enemy.

i feel i am needed as an Anti-Sectarian still.

i know that Truth is what brings together instead of separating, but honesty is still important.


Wishes.

May all beings have happines and causes of happiness,

May they be free from suffering and the cause of suffering,

May they always experience true happiness, which is totally free from suffering,

May they remain in the great equanimity, which is beyond attachment and aversion.

Need for Mind-Calming Meditation on Breath.

About.

i read that Meditation on Breath creates distance from disturbing thoughts & feelings.

i wished to meditate that way since long time.

But had mental illness symptoms that prevented me from doing it.

Because of these mental illness symptoms i also got somatic (physical) ilness symptoms - rapid uncontrolled spasms & habits that caused my neck, head, & other body parts pains.

i think that beings who wish to abuse me, wish me ill ... that they are Causes of these mental & somatic illness symptoms.


Wishes.

i wish to meditate on Breath, i wish for causes & conditions for that activity.

i wish that all beings who wish to meditate on breath have causes & conditions to do so.

Consciousness & Self.

Recently i did listen to a Lecture by Bhikkhu Samahita about Emptiness.

Following thoughts & understanding occured:
- We are Mind, we are Consciousness.
- Consciousness itself experiences thoughts & feelings, Consciousness experiences Reality in a series of discrete moments that are perceived as continuous stream,
- Self is not permanent, it's what we perceive in a discrete moments, changing from a moment to a moment,
- Consciousness experiences changing Mind States, that we perceive as Reality - we perceive it as we have bodies, feelings, thoughts, meet people, see surroundings etc ... it's all mind states,
- Death is illusion as well, it's just another type of mind states, still experienced as changing from a moment to a moment. Both death & rebirth, life & bardo are all mind states,
- i think Liberation is types of Mind States, 'free situations' without worries, or with less worries. Both Inner & Outer Realities are part of such Mind States, so Purification Practices, Improving Karma, as well as Results of these Practices affect both Inner & Outer Realities.

Source: Bhikkhu Samahita, Dharma on Air #78: Emptiness.


Following questions arose:
- Do Spiritual Aspects of beings arise from Mind? are these Conditioned, part of one's Karma?
- Is one's Powerfield a part of one's Mind State? Is it Conditioned? Is it part of one's Karma?
- What is Probability? Is it predetermined by Cause & Effect? Do we still have free will alongside of our Karma?

Following Aspiration arose:
- To model Enlightenment Theory using Object-Oriented Methodology, a visual graph of 'what is?' & 'what has?'.

Ideas to use in such the model is Object-Oriented Modelling & Finite-State Automaton theory.

Finite automaton have states & transitions, in a given discrete moment mind is in one of possible mind states.

Change from a current state to another state occurs by following a transition arrow, and choice of arrow is determined by:
- One's Karma experienced in a given moment,
- One's Reaction to experienced Karma.

i am not sure how simplified or how precise this model will be.
