POINT OF NO RETURN

Point of No Return

Once we recognise and understand the basic principles of the Dharma, even though we may drift away from time to time, there is a point below which we will not fall because there is a feeling of abundance: life is enriched by merely recognising.

As Shabkar Tsokdrug Rangdrol wrote in ‘The Flight of the Garuda’:

In this way, when you have maintained the view without distraction, then later, even if you completely let go and leave things as they naturally are, there will be no coming or going from the true state.

When appearances and emptiness are inseparable,
that is the time of having actualised the view.

When dreaming and being awake are without any difference,
that is the time of having actualised the meditation.

When happiness and suffering are without any difference,
that is the time of having realised the action.

When this life and the next are not different,
that is the time of having realised the natural state.

When mind and space are without any difference,
that is the time of having realised the dharmakaya.

When your mind and the Buddha are not different,
that is the time of having realised the fruition.”
