Letter from Nigeria: Some thoughts by Professor Chukwugozie Maduka (Tantra Dharma Sunyata): RIGHT VIEW AND THE SOURCE OF THE BLESSING. (cảm nghĩ của giáo sư tiến sĩ Chukwugozie Maduka (Tantra Dharma Sunyata): chánh kiến và nguồn ơn phước.)

Dear Holy Guru,

I have thoroughly read and enjoyed the well crafted paper of Part 7 on ‘How to Turn the Brilliant Light (Prabhu)’. The paper posits that the bright light of Buddhist Practitioners far outshines that from devas in this world of form because the Buddhist light is woven with Buddha’s Right View and powerfully dressed by the Buddha’s in the Ten Directions. What is more, such divine lights unlike electric bulbs,unlike the sun, the moon, unlike a flame. Rather, as wisdom light it is woven by quantum particles which are not observable even under a microscope but is nevertheless able to influence conduct by attracting positive karma on account of Right View illumy.

The paper classifies the development of Right View from Part to Whole, from Part to Completeness wherein the Apex point is SaMadhi meaning intense concentration/pointedness of mind. Some stages of development are addressed for mind abiding namely: from heading of mind to continuous heading, to setting the mind,to perfecting the setting. In all these, visual objects are dispensed of: no blue/yellow kasinas,no fixed temple,no fixed hall, no fixed meditation chamber, no fixed holy space.Instead, what is needed is a combination of Samatha and Vipasana.Attention must be paid to Right View behavior, body speech,mind getting used to Right View in all its ramifications and in wholeness and Completeness.

 

For instance,i t is critical to conduct life affairs/Dharma affairs as a boat to cross Samsara to the bank of Enlightenment. Important Aspects of good Practices of the 8 Dharma of taking Refuge in the Three Jewels and such that: we do not worship nor bow before devas, Asuras, demons and objects, we do not associate spiritually with headend, we take Refuge in the Three Jewels every day and in every direction we wish to go and bring aware that the Guru is the source of the blessings of the Three Jewels, that the Holy Guru represents the Three Jewels. Where inauspicious events occur thereafter, that is as a result of past bad karma and such opportunity is made available for our purification. We should engage in charity, almsgiving, worship, Chanting of Buddha’s name, mantra recitation, should not practice meriterous action for Fame/praise, we should not preach Dharma without practicing, we should not preach Dharma when our understanding of same is defective, after joining a holy order one should not go back to be a householder, we should not give to charity and almsgiving what has been ill gotten, should not practice Dharma for selfish vreasons.

Dharma affairs as a boat to cross Samsara to the bank of Enlightenment

Finally,we note that the fulfillment of of 2nd Mind Dharma, moving from Prabha to SaMadhi is gradational, from fundamental definition of Right View to different perceptions, to benefits of Right View, to disbenefits of Wrong View, to comprehensiveness, to brilliant light of Right View. And all these should be employed to preaching and converting sentient beings Away from Wrong View to Right View such that they all break down attachments and attain liberation and ultimately Enlightenment. All these must be devoid of pegan meditation magic. Yet, in accomplishing all these, we must learn to walk before we run.

Holy Guru, this paper is a masterpiece both in content, context and in presentation. You made a masterly use of figures of speech.

I bow before your Lotus Feet

May the Guru ever continue to enjoy good health coupled with Long Life.

Tantra Dharma Sunyata.
