Many may get the idea that rigpa is kind of like an empty space of awareness in which its appearances spontaneously arise and release.
That’s ok regarding the empty aspect but is quite limited concerning the active creativity of rigpa. Rigpa always manifests its energy mandala. That’s what is seen and experienced.
It creates its world of inner and outer experience through its energetic power called “tsal”. Some divide this creative energy into three types of energy manifestation: external appearances as “tsal”, interior experiences as “rolpa”, and all pervasive energy as “dang”. But in fact they are just three ways of describing luminosity as “lhundrub”.
All appearances, universes, bodies, objects, perceptions, thoughts, concepts, self-identities, dualistic mind, karmic mind, vasanas, karmic traces, karmic prana, alayavijnana, imaginations, dreams, day dreams, wisdoms, prana, kundalini and chakras are equally this energy. It’s much easier to just refer to them all as “tsal”, the “tsal of rigpa”.
It’s basic state is our natural, clear aware and knowing consciousness. Our sense of relative and personal self-identity is this tsal energy being manifested right in the middle of our sphere of consciousness by active rigpa in that exact moment. The relative self is the immediate self manifestation of rigpa itself. In fact it is the creative energy of rigpa being “intended” in this moment in this exact form. Because it is just an energy manifestation of rigpa, it lacks rigpa’s full knowing wisdom. That’s the basic “ignorance” of apparent “beings” or tsal entity projections.
I refer to this “imaginary self”often as being a projection of the subconscious. That really only means that the projector, rigpa itself, is below the surface consciousness of the self-entity. The self-entity is only a puppet of Rigpa’s free playing energy as the puppeteer.
The moment of gnostic liberation occurs when rigpa projects and informs the self-entity with the recognition of it currently being only an energetic projection of rigpa itself. Rigpa projects the mind suddenly in the condition of seeing this.
Relative self and Absolute are known to be non-dual at that moment. This is the peak of all mystical endeavor and the only true wisdom liberation.
Knowing this now through your own rigpa wisdom, as rigpa minus the tsal self-identity, one’s active creativity as tsal creates a new mandala in which samsaric beings are now seen as Buddhas and the dimension of samsara as Buddha Pure Lands. Siddhis and usable higher powers become available as there are no longer any self-defeating loops involving one’s intent and active tsal. Unlimited resources are made available for the benefit of all beings.
This is the true meaning of empowerment, the proper and coherent use of one’s tsal as power.
May all beings prosper!Quelle / Referenz
