The Snow Lion's Turquoise Mane | Commentry

"Everything is in the state of primordal Buddhahood;
recognition of that is spiritual awakening.

The six senses left in their natural state

compose the outlook of the natural Great Perfection.

Enjoying everything, simply
leave it as it is
and rest your weary mind."

(Longchenpa)

In Buddhist tradition it is said that everything is in the state of primordal Buddhahood. Now what is Buddhahood. Buddha means enlightened one, awakened one.

What enlightens?
Only truth enlighten us, awaken us.
When one is touched and consumed by truth, then one can be considered enlightened, because truth is light that has the power to enlighten.

Now read in Quran God affirms that He created everything (heaven and earth) with (haqq) truth. (The Quran, 16:03)

God has created everything there is with perfection. (The Quran, 67:03)

As Buddha said, "When you realize how perfect everything is you will tilt your head back and laugh at the sky."

This pefectness in the creation, the fact that the essence of truth can be found in everything in the creation is what is meant by the saying that "Everything is in the state of primordal Buddhahood".

Now lets look at the the six senses:
Ayatana is the Buddhist Sanskrit term for the Six Sense Organs (Gates) and their corresponding sense objects. There are thus twelve Ayatanas in total.

- Eye and its visible object
- Ear and sound
- Nose and odor
- Tongue and taste
- Body and touch
- Mind and thought

Buddhism lists six senses as opposed to the Western listing of only five. In Buddhism, the mind is considered an organ of perception and the objects that the mind perceives are thought objects.

And what is 'the natural state of the six senses'?
It is non-participating in anything that is not of Divine Command, the non-doing of any evil.

God says, when my servants follow My Divine Command and abide in My Divine Will by annihilating their own will, it is by their eye that I, God sees, by their tongue that I, God speaks and by their mind that I, God thinks (from the saying of Prophet Muhammad). That is the "compose of the outlook of the Great Perfection". Indeed only God is the Great Perfect One (Subhanallah) and His attributes are natural Great Perfection.

Enjoying everything means being grateful to everything. Alhamdulillah, hence Praise be to God is the utterence. Whatever befalls man, whatever encounters man, be it pleasant or unpleasant, be it seemingly good or seemingly bad; an attitude of surrender is what enables one to 'simply leave it as it is'. This leaving is not the passive way, but it is the active way of cultivating the mental state of surrender to Divine Will.

And when one is successful in cultivating and attaining this attitude of surrender to the Divine, which is the natural state for all creation. From the very tiny atom to the great trees of amazon, the huge galaxies light years away - all are in a state of constant surrender to the Divine Will. Only man in the creation has been given the ability to surrender consciously, is given the choice.

And since this is the natural state for the creation to submit to the Divine Will, only that attitude of soul brings the rest to the mind & to the soul. Enjoying everything, being grateful to everything and leaving them as it is - surrendering to the Divine Will brings the great peace.

"O thou soul, in (complete) rest and peace! Come back thou to thy Lord,- well pleased (thyself), and well-pleasing unto Him! Enter thou among My devotees! Yea, enter thou My State of Bliss!" (The Quran 89:27-30)

My gratefulness to Beloved Shelby for sending this beautiful book to my way. May you be in that beautiful state of bliss, as promised by God in Quran. Amen!
