He makes the clouds his chariot

and rides on the wings of the wind."

  • Healing Anger : The Power of Patience from a Buddhist Perspective. (1997). Trans. Thupten Jinpa. page 28.

"When we talk about the notion of self in Buddhism, it is important to bear in mind that there are different degrees or types.

  • There are some types of sense of self which are not only to be cultivated but also to be reinforced and enhanced.
  • For instance, in order to have a strong determination to seek buddhahood for the benefit of all sentient beings, one needs a very strong sense of confidence , which is based upon a sense of commitment and courage.
  • This requires a strong sense of self.

Unless one has that identity or sense of self, one will not be able to develop the confidence and courage to strongly seek this aim."

There is nothing outside of you but a story that brings up a feeling. The reason you birth yourself in this reality, in this time-frame, in this Now, in every Now and every lifetime, in every situation, is simply for the emotional intensity of that life.

You are not here to learn to be masters, unless you choose it. You are not here to change the world. You are not here to do anything except have an extraordinary emotional experience.

That you may indeed garner wisdom and that you may indeed be of support and nurturing and healing to your fellow men is all very wondrous. You are really here for the emotional experience."

365 Dalai Lama: Daily Advice from the Heart

  • 14th Dalai Lama 1935- Policy of Kindness Tenzing Gyatso
  • ed. Matthieu Ricard,
  • trans. Christian Bruyat,
  • p. 259

"We must distinguish between pride and self-confidence.

Self-confidence is necessary. It is what enables us, in certain situations, not to lose courage and to think with some justification, 'I am capable of succeeding.' Self-confidence is quite different from excessive self-assurance based on a false appreciation of our capacities or circumstances.

If you feel able to accomplish a task that other people cannot manage, then you cannot be called proud as long as your assessment is well founded.

It is as if someone tall came across a group of short people who wanted to get something too high for them to reach, and said to them, 'Don't exert yourselves, I can do it.'

This would simply mean that he was more qualified than the others to carry out a particular task, but not that he is superior to them or that he wants to crush them."

~~ Bhagavan Shri 1879-1950 Ramana Maharshi of Arunachala

"The bliss of the Self is always with you

and you will find it for yourself if you seek it earnestly."

Surya's natural karaka-character

Placements affecting Surya's behavior

gold_sun.gif Surya = being in the Center, center-stage, Heart-center

  • Surya = the Eye of the Soul. What does Surya's brilliant light permit the native to"see"?

  • Surya = the nucleus, the kernel, the hot core of human life

  • Surya creates drama, loves political power, needs attention, He is in the Eye of the storm

  • Surya shows the path to the center of truth; thus He indicates righteousness... or self-righteousness.

  • Surya throws a concentrated light upon matters of His bhava then Surya 'burns up' the ego impurities there

  • Surya then propels the native to a higher, more idealized and more individualized level of self-expression regarding matters of His occupied house

  • Sometimes, Surya 'burns up' all matters of the house except the very highest Divinely Intelligent consciousness.

  • Surya = voluntary (will-power) action; Shani = obligatory (karmic, lawful) action

  • Surya = strong in a rashi of friends Guru, Chandra, and Mangala.

  • Surya is weakened in a rashi of His enemies Shani and Zukra. He is neutral in a rashi of Budha.

The Gospel of Luke

  • 11:34-35

"The light of the body is The eye :

  • therefore when thine eye is single,

  • thy whole body also is full of light;

but when thine eye is evil, thy body also is full of darkness.

Take heed therefore that the light which is in thee be not darkness."

HUMAN DIGNITY

14th Dalai Lama 1935- Policy of Kindness Tenzing Gyatso

Kindness, Clarity, and Insight,

page 180

"If we realize, I am a human being. A human being can do anything, this determination, courage, and self-confidence are important sources of victory and success.

Without will power and determination, even something that you might have achieved easily cannot be achieved. If you have will power and reasonable courage not blind courage but courage without pride even things that seemed impossible at a certain stage turn into being possible because of continuing effort inspired by that courage. Thus, determination is important.

How can this be developed?

Not through machines, not by money, but by our own inner strength based on clear realization of the value of human beings, of human dignity.

For, once we realize that a human being is much more than just material, much more than just money, we can feel the importance of human life, from which we can feel the importance of compassion and kindness.

Human beings by nature want happiness and do not want suffering.

With that feeling everyone tries to achieve happiness and tries to get rid of suffering, and everyone has the basic right to do this.

In this way, all here are the same, whether rich or poor, educated or uneducated, Easterner or Westerner, believer or nonbeliever, and within believers whether Buddhist, Christian, Jewish, Muslim, and so on.

Basically, from the viewpoint of real human value we are all the same."

mulatrikona = 1-10 degrees Simha

Surya =

centrality, genius, confidence, will-power, a-muse-ment, Divine intelligence

  • Surya's rashi significantly determines the quality personal genius and self-determination in society.

  • Surya = how one was praised as a child.

  • Surya = the father and self-authoritative males in general.

    • Several children within the same family may have radically different experience of their mutual father.

    To evaluate Surya in any nativity, be sure to balance and compare the character of Surya in both radix D-1 (social-material) and navamsha D-9 (spiritual-emotional).

Surya Mahadasha

Modern description of the sequence of experiences structured into the Surya Mahadasha, written by Barbara Pijan Lama

* worth-ship * worship of Surya Traditionally, the Sun God is worshipped by offering red flowers, Akshata and Santala with folded hands, and then the Graha are worshipped.

~~ Baba Ram Dass (his Surya+Rahu in dharmasthana-Meena of D-1; Surya-yuti-Rahu in his 8th navamsha also)

"The spiritual journey is individual, highly personal.

It cant be organized or regulated.

It isnt true that everybody should follow one path.

Listen to your own truth."

Happy Birthday


"To all you noble Buddhas currently living in prison, happy birthday.

To all you austere Buddhas selling your smiles in taverns, happy birthday.

To you countless Buddhas twinkling in the night sky, happy birthday.

And happy birthday to all of you brightly smiling, beautiful Buddhas in the gardens.


To all you Buddhas who have become endlessly changing clouds as you drift across the sky, to all you Buddhas who are quietly biding your time as boulders―a very happy birthday to you, too.

And happy birthday to all you cute little Buddhas swimming in the water. To all you lively Buddhas soaring about the sky. To all you reverential Buddhas singing hymns in churches, and to all you handsome Buddhas chanting in temples.


To all you Buddhas hoeing and plowing the fields and paddies, to all you Buddhas sweating in the humming factories, to all you Buddhas working in dust and dirt, and to all you Buddhas quietly studying in classrooms - let me wish you all a very happy birthday.


When I open my eyes, you are Buddha. When I close my eyes, you are Buddha. Every place in the universe is filled with Buddha!

The heavens and the earth are from the same source, and everything in the universe is One Buddha. Although we all have different guises and appearances, we're all manifestations of this One Buddha. Everything is equal, and everything is magnificent!

So let us transcend our torments in this world of Buddha, and enjoy happiness. How marvelous that every single place is a site for liberation from suffering and ignorance!


To all you Buddhas wearing the gentle smile of compassion and delivering the Dharma in a sound even greater than thunder, to all you Buddhas who fill every corner of the universe - every day is a wonderful day, and every day is our birthday.

So let us all eternally respect and congratulate one another!"

Surya Drishti

Surya sees Budha as a neutral party, neither friend nor enemy.

If Surya receives drishti of His enemies Zukra and Shani , then Surya's capacity for genuine self-confidence = belief that one's soul is fully connected to the divine =

  • reduced by interference of either material pleasures (Zukra) or material pains (Shani).

If Surya receives drishti of His friends Chandra, Kuja and Vrihaspati,

  • Then, that natural feeling of well-being and adequacy in the eyes of the Divine is enhanced.

  • The soul prospers.

see: Surya Mesha uttama vs. Surya Simha moolatrikona

When Surya = uttama Mesha or swakshetra Simha, genuine confidence is strong at birth.

  • Surya well-disposed in Simha elevates royal entitlement and empowers the individual confidence, which in turns brightens the personal intelligence

  • Surya-Meza emphasizes individual initiative , nobility, personal physical empowerment and self-determination through energetic, dynamic movement.

When Surya = nichha Thula or in an enemy rash i of Vrishabha, Makara, or Kumbha, the confidence is low and the native seeks material substitutes for true faith.

  • Surya's power to channel divine intelligence through individual creative thought is weakened in Thula (pairings, partnership) or Kumbha (large groups, networks, assemblies).

  • Mahadasha of nichha-Surya or effect of drishti from weakened Surya may be characterized by weakened ability to express the creative intelligence, incomplete acts of personal decision, or falling sway to dominant others despite best efforts to maintain independence.

Domains owned by Budha = Mithuna, Kanya = friendly

  • Surya is welcomed by Professor Budha , who considers Surya to be His friend.

  • When born into the rashi or bhava (3, 6) of Budha, Surya gains argumentative, instructional, descriptive power to count and recount -- numeracy and literacy.

Domains owned by Shani and Zukra = unfriendly

In general, Surya flourishes in houses 1, 4, 5, 9, and 10 .

When born into the rashi or bhava Zukra or Shani, Surya loses some of His natural regal entitlement to independence and He becomes less effective as a result.

Bhava-2 and bhava-7 naturally belong to Zukra

bhava 10-11 are the natural territory of governing, ordering Professor Shani .

Although Surya likes high-visibility leadership roles and therefore Surya in bhava-10 gets dig-bala, His natural tendency toward autocracy is nevertheless weakened in Shani's bureaucratic swakshetra-10 . In karma-bhava, Surya becomes a celebrity King-type who charisma is cramped by Shani's rule of law.

Navamsha rashi and other varga rashi

Suraja always occupies two rashi:

  1. His rashi in radix

  2. His rashi in navamsha.

Surya's rashi in other varga must be known to evaluate the areas controlled by those varga.

For Surya, Chandra, and Budha, navamsha characteristics must be assessed immediately, particularly if Budha or the luminaries are lord of the current Vimshottari dasha.

Special case of Surya in karma bhava :

  • In bhava-10, in any rashi, Surya makes an independent actor and leader.

  • However, if Surya receives drishti of Shani or Surya occupies a rashi of Shani, expect heavy conformist restrictions on the mode and style of Surya 's leadership. The confidence is reduced, and the native 's path to social self-determination is frustrated. Not destroyed- but frustrated!

Combined effects

Most nativities feature some combination of rashi, bhava, and drishti effects upon Surya, which maintain the ego and belief systems in reasonably good balance.

  • A strong and confident Surya usually receives some restraining aspect

  • Professor Surya in an uncomfortable rashi usually receives a supportive aspect from a friendly planet.

Angular Relationships to other graha

(see Jataka Desha Marga, Ch. 1, Sloka 44 - above):

  • Angle between Surya and Chandra shows the emotional mind - do emotions flow confidently and easily as a result of positive thoughts and expression?

  • Angle between Surya and Kuja shows the rhythm of the native 's physical, muscular activity - is the physical body responsive and free in movement as a result of positive ego-thought?

  • Angle between Surya and Budha shows acuity of speech - does speech flow clearly as a result of clean mental habits and positive self-image?

  • Angle between Surya and Guru shows wisdom and potential for lasting happiness - is the worldview balanced and inclusive due to compassion toward the Self?

  • Angle between Surya and Zukra shows sexual and romantic love - are love relationships validating and pleasurable due to self-confirmation in the eyes of the Divine?

  • Angle between Surya and Shani shows how the individual executes his social duty - is the professional contribution to social welfare valued and rewarded by others due to positive self-worth in the belief system?

Individual (Surya) relationship to Social Morality (Shani)

Surya = the central indicator of personal righteousness in radix and navamsha.

Dharma Bhava = philosophical principles of *belief* (9) = often awkwardly aligned at 6-8 angle to the actual moral practice which is more accurately found in the rhythmic, customary, boundaried bhava-4

  • Bhava-9 = governed by Brihaspati = priesthood, sacred vows, sacramental ritual, and the philosophy of one's guru or priestly lineage.

  • Surya = pitri-karaka indicating the father; Surya can signify all males within the incarnational theatre. Dharma bhava demonstrates the social character of the father.

  • Dharma bhava also indicates World Travel, which being 6th from 4th indicates actions adversarial to the mother's birth culture (4). Naturally, the broad view of an international lifestyle is adversarial to narrow view of local folkways, ancient customs, and established cultural norms.

  • Bhava-9 shows how one may treat those who are not members of one's ethnicity or local family; one's compassionate ability to"stand in the shoes " of those in the greater society whose mannerisms are different from (and typically in conflict with, 6th-from-4th) the folkways, ancient customs, and established cultural norms of one's own upbringing. Thus dharmasthana shows social morality, one's social behavior principles as derived from religious teachings and role-modeling of the father . Always in contradistinction from family morality which derives from the habits and folkways, ancient customs, and established cultural norms of the mothers.

Surya = personal righteousness, personal entitlement, and personal ability to channel divine intelligence including the energies of creativity and truth.

  • Just as a monarch serves as an icon of radiant certainty to one's own people, so Surya in radix and navamsha shows the individual promulgating what one believes to be the principles of truth.

  • Surya shows the ways in which the native promotes one's own self-interest Surya = the ego-membrane center of the personality, the core of certainty, and entitlement to exist.

Mesha-Simha Surya - The Righteous and the Self-Righteous

  • When Surya occupies His exalted sign of Mesha or His swakshetra/mulatrikona sign of Simha, the personality exhibits a highly developed personal certainty which does not permit doubt.

  • the native may be unable to cooperate with others of lesser conviction.

  • Mesha-Simha Surya's personal certainty does not mean that the native with a vigorous Surya position treats Others as well as oneself! As the case of Adolf Hitler demonstrates, a person may be profoundly convinced of the righteousness of one's own convictions and from this unshakable confidence release the greatest possible Selfish Evil.

Neither the Righteous nor the Self-Righteous are shy or confused! Mesha-Simha Surya absolutely believe in their own personal truth.

  • Surya is inherently concerned with intelligence, which is the core energy of divinity. The Surya-driven native is rarely uncertain. One suffers little ambiguity or or fear. One may be absolutely wrong, like Hitler (whose Surya, altho exalted, is oppressed by enemy Zukra) .Yet one firmly believes in the divine purity of oneself, one's choices, and one's results.

Surya = Fire = Homa (fire sacrifice) = Burning of Impurities

  • Mesha-Simha Surya (including the uttama or mulatrikona positions achieved through parivartamsha ) are dedicated to the burning of impurities from the world.

One is a purist.

One strives to promote - or, Surya yuti Kuja per Hitler -- enforce - this fire-cleansing for total purity, in full expectation that principled action will create a better world.

One may sacrifice and purify oneself (the proper route) or one may be deluded into believing that the impurity lies "outside" of oneself, and thus one may become an evil tyrant .

  • Compare the genocidal dictator Adolf Hitler to another strong Surya radix - that of Savitri 1872-1950 Shri Aurobindo Ghosh - who also had strong personal opinions about political life and social purity. Righteous vs. Self-righteous is a rather close distinction.

TsangSakya_NgorGompa_4MandalaVajravali.jpg

Tsang district of Central Tibet * Sakya Ngor Monastery * Four Mandalas Vajravali

~~ Savitri 1872-1950 Shri Aurobindo Ghosh

"The one aim of yoga is an inner self-development by which each one who follows it can in time discover the One Self in all

and evolve a higher consciousness than the mental, a spiritual and supra-mental consciousness which will transform and divinize human nature ."

Intelligence and Confident Creativity

  • Surya = "light of day".

  • Soma = "light of night".

Soma represents the gentle, subtle light of intuitive perception. Surya exhibits the vigorous, flamboyant light of royal confidence.

Surya vs Budha

Budha and Bhava-3 = communication style and messaging, narrative, handcraft, writing, cultural fluency, facility of gesture, etc.

  • Budha = the constant"mental traffic" of the conversational narrative, while Surya controls the individual creative intelligence which taps into the Divine Intelligence.

  • Surya's central intelligence (faith) = the energy source of Budha's communicative messaging and instruction; discriminating, polarizing Budha develops the specific information-arranging skill set to a higher technical level.

  • Surya and Budha are mutually friendly graha

  • whatever quality and quantity of intelligence Surya may manifest in the present incarnation, Budha will cheerfully duplicate, articulate and disseminate this intelligence via words and gestures.

A powerful Surya = originality of thought, celebrity, genius.

However, unless Budha assists Surya with the verbal articulation of this brilliant awareness, genius might never find a useful verbal or literary expression. Budha should escape the range of combustion Budha should be helpfully disposed in order for the genius to promulgate one's most original, divinely inspired ideas. However sheer conceptual power, the capacity to think in cosmic and universal terms, remains the province of Professor Surya .

Noting the effect of Suraja on the ages of human civilization, Sri Yukteswara writes:

"With the commencement of the Ascending Kali Yuga, after A.D. 499,

  • the sun began to advance in its orbit nearer to the grand centre,

  • and accordingly the intellectual power of man started to develop."

~~ Shri Swami Yukteswara. (1894, 1990).The Holy Science. Self-Realization Fellowship)

Self-Confidence, Self-Righteousness, Flamboyance

Personality characteristics of Suraja run along a continuum from self-confident to self-righteous .

When Surya is strong a person "thinks well of himself", regardless of public opinion. He has good reasons for his behavior and he is convinced he is right (whether he actually is, or not!) Strong, positive role for Surya suggests that the native feels deeply enfranchised to be "who they are" regardless of external confirmation of that right!

Surya's strength per se and His angle to Soma provide a "flamboyance index" which predict how aggressively rational a person might be. *Not* how "correct" their reasoning is or how clearly they articulate their personal logic (which is more a function of Budha). And *not* whether their methods or conclusions are logically valid or culturally approved (which is more a function of bhava-3 and bhava-10). But rather, how self-confident and theatrically staged are the native 's arguments.

Poorly informed and emotionally handicapped natives with a strong placement of self-righteous Surya may be aggressively dominant, promoting a small number of political concepts very confidently. The local politician substituting loudly repeated slogans for a reasoned argument probably has a strong Sun. The beer-sotted neighbor holding forth on better ways to run his national government probably also has a strong Sun!

  • So are totalitarian dictators such as Germany-Nazi 1889-1945 Reichskanzler Adolf Hitler and Russ-Soviet 1878-1953 Man-of-Steel Josef Stalin

Well-educated and emotionally developed nativities with a strong Sun will be calmly and comprehensively reasonable, capable of understanding and appreciating alternative views, and still completely confident that their own well-planned position is correct.

  • Such as the great theological minds of history, and the Enlightenment philosophers and working politicians like POTUS-03 Declaration of Independence Thomas Jefferson who carried forth great rational principles of government.

What they all have in common is their unshakable conviction - evidence notwithstanding - that they are right.

Soul, Life Force, or Eternal Consciousness

Conscious individuals will notice that the six-year Vimshottari mahadasha of Surya is a period of personal reconnection with the psychic, rational, and social aspects of the Father. Periods of Surya cause awakening to the internalized role of the Father within oneself. (This experience may be pleasant or painful or both, depending on the Jyotisha characteristics of natal Surya ).

It is wise to"strike while the iron is hot" (an apt metaphor for the hottest graha!) and use this essential self-knowledge to fullest capacity during the six-year mahadasha.

General patterns of Surya period include:

  • Attracting into one's environment persons who resemble the Father and the all-knowing Guru on many levels

  • understanding the role that the Father played in the child's personality formation

  • depending on Surya's character, assignment to leadership roles and need to negotiate moral conflict situations, or make conscious ethical choices

  • strong rationalization of the personality: organization of thought, social role, relationships, and inner consciousness (soul)

In the nativity, look to Surya as the primary indicator of Father;

and Chandra as primary indicator of Mother.

bhava-9 also indicates Father, but bhava-9 should be used as a complementary and secondary indicator. Similarly, matrikaraka Soma is the strongest karaka for Mother, but bhava-4 is complementary and secondary. Use both to build the parental profile.

Consider Surya - in Radix, Navamsha, and Dwadazamamza-10 - to show the core characteristics of the Father.

Charisma

Surya's vitality is an essential component in celebrity level"charisma", the magnetic attractiveness which draws interest and attention to one's performance, ideas, and style.

  • Highly charismatic people will exhibit, in addition to comfortably houses and well-aspected Surya , an auspicious Zukra or Rahu (usually conjunct Surya ) for physical magnetism, a positive Budha (close to Surya but not combust ) and nice lagnesha (again, ideally, yuti Surya ).

SuryaFlaming.JPG

14th Dalai Lama 1935- Policy of Kindness Tenzing Gyatso

Compassion is the desire for another to have freedom from suffering.

Love is the desire for another to have happiness.

Father


for step-father, see 8th-from-Surya

BPHS, Ch. 7, Shloka 39-43: "Dharma Bhava and the ninth from Surya deal with one's father."

Surya= pitrukaraka = Father.

In the Jyotisha narrative, Suraja's character provides information about the physical father, as well as one's spiritual preceptors and progenitors.

Surya 's agency includes men (and under special circumstances certain extraordinarily publicly brilliant,halo-enshrined women) who play the role of guru, preceptor, mentor, philosophy professor, preacher, and moral guide.

Das commentary ,

if The Sun conjoins a malefic planet.

"This placement is not good for the father or your relationship with him

depending on other factors in the chart."

Externalization: Sun as natural lagna for public life

External projections of the soul such as public leadership roles and ability to marshal the associative network of the marketplace must be ascertained not only from 10th and 11th from lagna, but also most importantly by seeing 10th and 11th from leader-activist Surya.

Suraja's bhava and rashi indicate the environment in which one seeks a central, recognized, well-regarded position . Surya is the center hub and all else radiates from Suraja like the spokes of a wheel.

Predictions based in Surya lagna

  • BPHS Ch. 7, Shloka 39-43

"Whatever effects are to be known from the Karma and Labha Bhava

be also known from similar bhava counted from Surya."

Public Role - Career

Surya (along with karmaa-bhava ) is a primary karaka for career .

Empowered Surya = the central component in the"Alpha male" personality, but Kujas and Brihaspati should also be strong for the total"lead wolf" behavior.

Dharma

Along with cold Saturn, hot Mars, and dark Rahu, the blazing heat of Surya is traditionally considered to provide a malefic influence upon human life. Like other malefics, Surya is inherently capable of destruction in the life-areas which it affects by bhava, razi, and drishti.

Unlike other papagraha, however, Professor Surya is a significator of Dharma theories of reality.

By the rule of karako bhavo nashto, Surya in dharma bhava is typically uncomfortable for the native who must experience self-righteous father-figures. Neither is Surya-9 especially helpful in matters of scientific or theological doctrine, due to the implication that one self-presumes to already know the answers and suggests egocentricity in matters of philosophical inquiry.

Nevertheless Surya is the radio-transmitter who carries the Sirius signals that generate human thought. Surya gives consciousness and light. Therefore He is never too serious of a malefic influence.

Consciousness whether obtained in an easy or a difficult way is still the ultimate objective of the incarnational game.

Surya favors recognition, rationality and objective awareness. However Surya's subjective instinct is selfish and dominating. Therefore Surya is good for professional matters but not so good for diplomacy in personal relationships.

Self-promoting Surya in His swabhava putra bhava9th-from-9th often creates extreme celebrity energy and success in games, but His exceptionally hot and dry pitta-dosha may prevent children (and always limits their numbers) Surya-5 gives flamboyant creativity and fame in performance arts, where self-promotion is the key to success.

Male Energy, Sun's Enemy Rahu

Surya is a source of energetic outgoing hot Male Energy; Moon is the opposite, incoming cool Female Energy.

(Psychic energy of sun-male-creative astral energy is used as a fuel source by both anatomical male and anatomical female bodies, which both run a combination of Male and Female energies albeit is different proportional ranges.)

Rahu the Darkener who causes eclipse of Surya is the greatest enemy of the Sun. Rahu symbolizes destruction of Dharma.

(In traditional India Surya signifies a woman's husband; Rahu brings widowhood.)

Eyes

The Eyes of the Physical Body form windows into the Soul.

Suraja, the Brightest most Kingly Light onto the Earth, represents the eyes of the human physical body.

  • As well, His Light shines into the astral, mental, and spiritual bodies, giving them each Sight according to the subtlety of their particular vibration. A strong position for Surya in the rashi/navamsha charts signifies bright eyes and rational intelligence as well as spiritual light in one's life during periods of Aaditya's lordship.

less benevolent transits to Surya or periods of planets who damage Surya's rays may indicate damage to or struggles with the eyes. Healing practices such as yogic candle-light gazing, palming, and Ayurvedic treatments to heal the eyes will be effective during any possible less benevolent such periods.

Persons with a strong position of the Sun will always be able to improve their eyesight through intelligent therapies especially yogic practices.

Humility, Altruism, Divinity, Compassion:


14th Dalai Lama 1935- Policy of Kindness Tenzing Gyatso

  • Lighting the Way.

  • Geshe Thupten Jinpa (Trans.)

"Any sense of conceit or self-importance gets in the way of cultivating the genuine altruistic intention, and the most effective remedy against this is the cultivation of humility.

I can tell you a more recent story to illustrate this point.

The great nineteenth-century Tibetan Dzokchen meditator Dza Patrul Rinpoche always maintained a demeanor of true humility. At one time, when he was giving a series of teachings to a large crowd of students, he experienced a forceful yearning for solitude.

So one day he quietly left his residence and disappeared, dressed like an ordinary pilgrim and carrying a walking staff and very little else. When he reached a nomadic camp he sought shelter for a few days with one of the families.

While he was staying with them, his hostess asked him to read some texts and, since he looked just like an ordinary pilgrim, in return for his food and lodging she asked him to help with the household chores, which included the disposal of the contents of her chamber pot.

One day, while he was away from the camp attending to this task, some of his well-dressed monk students came looking for him.

When his hostess heard their description of him, she suddenly realized this was the same person she had asked to throw away the contents of her chamber pot. (It is said she was so embarrassed that she just ran away!) Such was the humility of this great teacher, who had many thousands of students.


... great practitioners of the altruistic intention also possess a tremendous courage grounded in real inner strength ....

This combination of a total lack of conceit yet possessing great depth of courage is what is required in a true practitioner of bodhicitta, the altruistic mind of awakening."

The Vajra-yana:

  • Emptiness
  • Confidence
  • Identity
  • Maturity
  • Danger

14th Dalai Lama 1935- Policy of Kindness Tenzing Gyatso , The Path to Enlightenment. Glenn H. Mullin (Trans. and Ed.).

"...an understanding of the doctrine of emptiness is fundamental to tantric practice.

Every sadhana begins with, is structured around, and ends with meditation upon emptiness. To practice Vajrayana without the wisdom of emptiness can be very dangerous.

For example, a main tantric technique is the cultivation of Asubtle divine pride , a confidence that one is an enlightened tantric deity, the Lord of the Mandala.

  • One's mind is the Wisdom Body of a Buddha,

  • One's speech is the Beatific Body,

  • One's form is the Perfect Emanation Body,

  • And the world and its inhabitants are seen as a mandala inhabited by the various forms of tantric deities.

Thus we have to utterly change our sense of"I." To do so involves the subject of emptiness.

To practice the yoga of divine pride without an understanding of emptiness

  • will not only be useless,

  • but could lead to identity problems and other undesirable psychological effects.

Therefore it is said that

  • although the Vajrayana is a quick path when correctly practiced on the proper spiritual basis,

  • it is dangerous for the spiritually immature.

This type of danger area is one of the reasons why

  • the Vajrayana must be practiced under the supervision of a qualified vajra acharya."

The"I"


14th Dalai Lama 1935- Policy of Kindness Tenzing Gyatso. (2006).

How to Expand Love: Widening the Circle of Loving Relationships

Jeffrey Hopkins (Trans. Ed.)

"Many types of valid consciousnesses derive from basic, natural, and obvious perception.

All of us have an innate "I," a lthough if we try to locate this "I," we get into a lot of difficulties. This sense of "I" gives us a well-founded aspiration to happiness and a wish not to suffer.

There are different levels of happiness and different kinds of suffering.

Material things usually correspond to physical happiness ,

  • whereas spiritual development corresponds to mental happiness.

Since our "I" has these two aspects--physical and mental--we need an inseparable combination of material progress and internal, or spiritual, progress.

Balancing these is crucial to utilizing material progress and inner development for the good of human society.

Big schemes for world development arise from this wish to gain happiness and relieve suffering.

But there are higher levels of happiness beyond these worldly forms , in which one seeks something longer-term, not just confined to this lifetime.

Just as we need a long-range perspective that protects the environment, we need an internal long-range perspective that extends to future lifetimes."
