Sample text

Having purified his body completely by means of the vase empowerment, the disciple should correctly gain definite achieve­ ment in the application of the secret empowerment. Once the disciple has attained the signs of control over the channels, winds and essen­ ces and perfected the qualities of his own body, he can request the knowledge empowerment, have pointed out the four ascending and descending joys, and gain mastery over the coemergent wisdom. It will then also be easy for such a person to be given the·precious word empowerment.

Transmitted through Marpa and Milarepa, this tradition was spread widely as coemergent union by the Incom­ parable Dakpo (Gampopa). Later on, Garwang Chokyi Drakpa and other masters wrote manuals for the Mahamudra of bliss and 62 D EFI N I NG M A H A M U D R A emptiness and for the Mahamudra of awareness and emptiness, the natural state. Moreover, here in Tibet, Lord Sakyapa and his followers main­ tained that Mahamudra is itself the original wakefulness that is the nature of empowerment, and that empowerment therefore is of great importance.

Rather, practitioners should carry out these deeds in a state that is like an illusion. The Sutra Foretelling Goodness says: By gathering the illusory accumulations You become illusorily enlightened And carry out as an illusion The illusory welfare of beings. In short, it is said that unless you embrace the deed with the ac­ cumulation of wisdom or the knowledge of emptiness as the most important, even virtuous actions, not to mention evil deeds, will 54 T H O U G H T AN D N O N T H O U G H T become causes for rebirth in only the higher realms or for being a shravaka or pratyekabuddha rather than for the definite goodness of enlightenment.
