One Taste of Tantra (Namkhai Norbu)

Posted in buddhism, tibet, Uncategorized on June 26, 2012 by ewakening

While Hinayana and Mahayana regard the absolute voidness as the object of realization to be attained by freeing oneself from bonds of impure relative dimension, the Tantras beginwith the awareness of the voidness of all phenomena, and aim at re-integrating with the relative – working with the method of transformation. The relative is not renounced or rejected but used as the means of transformation itself, until dualism is overcome, and all phenomena can be said to be of “one taste,” pure from the beginning.

— Namkhai Norbu Rinpoche, from The Crystal and the Way of Light

Union of Appearance and Emptiness (Anyen)

Posted in buddhism, enlightenment, gurus, Uncategorized on July 10, 2011 by ewakening

If we do not take the truths in union, but associate ultimate reality with wisdom and conventional reality with delusion, the inseparable view will be divided. If we separate the nature of appearance and emptiness, we have strayed far from realization of the nature of mind.

— Anyen Rinpoche, from The Union of Dzogchen and Bodhicitta

The Middle Way (Aryadeva)

Posted in Uncategorized on June 26, 2011 by ewakening

Not existence and not nonexistence
Not these two conjoined nor the opposite of this
Freed from four extremes, the truly wise
Are those who keep within the middle way.

— Aryadeva

Our Mysterious Universe, Part II

Posted in Uncategorized on October 24, 2010 by ewakening

The Dunning–Kruger effect is a cognitive bias in which unskilled persons make poor decisions and reach erroneous conclusions, but their incompetence denies them the metacognitive ability to realize their mistakes. The unskilled therefore suffer from illusory superiority, rating their own ability as much higher than it actually is, while the highly skilled underrate their abilities, suffering from illusory inferiority. This leads to the situation in which less competent people rate their own ability higher than more competent people. It also explains why actual competence may weaken self-confidence: because competent individuals falsely assume that others have an equivalent understanding. Thus, the miscalibration of the incompetent stems from an error about the self, whereas the miscalibration of the highly competent stems from an error about others.
