during the city
i somewhat boldly gave some instruction
kind of bold instruction to suggest to you
that if you if we sit still long enough
we will discover
that was physically uncomfortable
and it and
complete concentration and relaxation can be realized
in that sitting still
by patiently bearing and quietly observing the physical discomfort
i imagine some of you might be surprised if by me suggesting to you that if you sit still long enough you will discover physical discomfort
but tom
what i mean by that is that even even if you're having a pleasant sensation bodily sensation pleasant
pleasure for
actually if you sit still you will notice that you have some discomfort
with the pleasure
if you're in pain also
that may be easier to understand but you'll have discomfort with the discomfort and if you have a neutral sensation you'll have discomfort with the neutral sensation
now this is
under the condition of not being in nirvana if you happened to be in nirvana their things are different
then you're not uncomfortable
physically or mentally
because there's no at that in that state
there is no attachment to psychophysical situation and attachment to psychophysical situation is the source of
the discomfort
that comes with having a body and mind
but without the attachment
but even in pain
there's ease and peace
when there is some attachment than theirs some than there is some discomfort with whatever kind of body you've got if you're moving around a lot you may not notice it but if you sit still long enough you will notice it
you will it you will be enlightened
as to your as to the condition of a being who has any grasping to cycle physicality
now if you are able to continue to be still
with this situation
patiently bear with it and quietly observe it you will realize concentration in the state of concentration you'll be relaxed and at ease with the physical discomfort the physical discomfort will still be there but it'll be kind of
suppressed in a sense or the the cause of the discomfort will be suppressed so then the physical discomfort and is also open to suppressed at least temporarily because
of the meditation
this is a concentration meditation
however it doesn't completely remove all tendencies and predispositions towards clinging
it's a it's a temporary
resting and ease with our situation
this class is
a class of meditation on the mind of enlightenment
and i wouldn't really encourage all of us
enjoy the beginning of this glass
every week
come here
and sit still
and not be distracted by any external things
for a while
an inwardly
ah give up any kind of movement
quietly observe what's happening in stillness inwardly be still outwardly be undistracted
and i would also suggest that it will really be good if everybody class would find some time during almost every day
since some time when you do the same kind of practice you find some even a short time when used to sit still or standstill or lie still
or even walk still
and it was some time to be still in your day
even for five minutes
when your outwardly not distracted and inwardly not moving
doing it more than once a day would be
very good to doing it longer than five minutes would be good
and developing this developing this kind of practice provides a context in which to meditate on the teachings
have this class
the teachings about how to meditate on the mind of enlightenment
when the mind of enlightenment
is english the mind of awakening is english
the thought of enlightenment
the spirit of enlightenment the spirit of awakening
these are various english translations of a sanskrit word bodhicitta
which is translated all his ways the mind of enlightenment it's on
in in chinese they transliterated into
pookie shin and in japanese they say bodhi
a bowtie body shin
which the body shin my body mind body mind body is awakening for enlightenment
a bodies the related to the word buddha bud
but goes to body which means awakening and buddha
the wake and one
the past participle
he's awakened one
yeah some bodhicitta body mind
thought of enlightenment mind of enlightenment consciousness awareness of enlightenment

so i'd i'd like to talk about this word
and also to talk about to give you some sense of what this bodhicitta is i also set in the course description that will actually tried it to have meditations on the relative or conventional bodhicitta
an ultimate body chatter
perhaps the most common definition of bodhicitta or
yeah body mind
refers to the resolute the the resolution
to attain body to attain enlightenment in order to liberate all living pigs
the resolution to attain body in order to liberate all living beings
this resolution
and motivates
bodhisattvas vows or the vows of enlightening beings
enlightening beings live by vows and this resolution
defines and motivates all their vows
so this is this this way of talking about bodhicitta is kind of the economy is rather the conventional way
it's a yeah it's like up
starts out being like mental state or a resolution in the mind
to attain this goal in order to benefit all beings and this mental
and defines the vow of those who on the path the buddhahood
and then there's various layers and meanings
of this
so on
so this resolution to attain body can be seen as a state of mind or mental process
but it is also
it's a my it is a mental process
the state of mind but it's also have a while
a solemn promise
it's also a a verbal act night this wish can arise in you this wish or this resolution can arise in one
without the verbal act without the promise without the oath without the wow
but when we make the vow that's also this bodymind now this body mind is translated into the action of making a promise to realize buddhahood in order to
liberate all beings it's a second
aspect of it
and the the both deserve this resolution is practice prior this resolution this decision
that has arisen is also can be expressed or embodied in particular rituals
have a voice
and posture
a third aspect is that this bodhicitta
is the motivating thought and the
the sentiment behind the spiritual practice the spiritual career of the bodhisattva
but that that may have already made sense to you that there would be the case but i wanted to articulate that that
number one is a resolution
to attain
buddhahood in order to liberate all beings number two it can also be a solemn promise of vow
in this vow is expressed verbally and physically in ritual in you in conventional ritual
next it is the motivating force behind the career all the different things that enlightening beings do
in their in their work to help beings and train themselves all the different kinds of trainings and and virtues that they try to develop it's a motivating
it's the motivation and the sentiment behind them all
and a kind of a fourth thing is that
it is the defining moment
and the moving force behind the course of action
that follows
and an axe the initial resolution
so this resolution with decision is the defining moment of the career it's the first is the actual beginning of the career is that moment
and it is continues to motivate ah the enactment of this original moment so it's the original moment and it also keeps the original moment going
one of ours and ancestors
sad that there's three things
that once born
are usually last
one is fish eggs
most fish eggs do not make it
to is some kind of fruit that on
i guess it's really good because you know it disappear as soon as it i guess the birds eat it before it has a chance to the or to have to pick it in the third thing is this body mind it's very easily look very easily lost
what is born that the when it's first born at that first moment when it first arises that one thinks this this is the beginning this is the beginning of the path of buddhahood but it can be lost
and taking care of it
he's also yet
and the last class we we went through
the practices that are usually done to take care of it once it arises giving
ethical precepts
patience enthusiasm
concentration and wisdom these practices take care of the body mind
the ultimate caregiver is the perfection of wisdom
and the perfection wisdom has its on your five virtues that assist in caring for this thought wanted born
if you sit still
and patiently bear with and quietly observe physical discomfort
this body mind might be born in you're sitting
and then when is born you can take care of it
by practicing continuing to practice meditation
so i don't know exactly if this mine has been born in all of us
but it could be born in all of us during this class and then we could all take care of it
the teachings offered in the meditations heart to take care of it and also to encourage its birth
if it hasn't been born yet
people do come to me sometimes and when they hear about this mind they do come demands say why don't have that mind i'm just practicing meditation for myself i'm practically i would like to go to nirvana yes i admit it but i
i'm not going to nirvana
in order to save all living beings i'm going there because i would like to get a major break
from my suffering
this is the buddha permits this
permits the practice
a meditation that leads to nirvana is allowed but the my we're talking by now is a mind that leads to buddhahood not just to mind the ghost to nirvana mark this mind actually can go to nirvana but does not go there until everybody else has gone there
so again this is the defining moment this is the initial appearance of bodhicitta and then it's the caring for their initial defining moment
also ah
this this process this this mind makes a mental representation of the goal within this mind is a mental representation or buddhahood it's part of
what's going on in this mine is actually some kind of image some mental representation of good of the buddhahood which can help all beings
and there's a in part of part of the process is to focus and remember that image remember buddha
remember the one
who has the ability to care for all the ability and the desire to care for all beings
and this
focus on this image he has kind of the spirit
in the process
and the final thing is that this process leads to the ultimate body chapter
the final boarding egypt
which is
what the boy chapter was resolved to realize namely enlightenment itself
and then even even beyond that bullshit checked then becomes the ground
from which body shit arises
and the process goes on
so in one sense we sometimes say that you know the buddha
the root of the buddha's his compassion
the root of the buddhist virtues and the buddha's
complete wisdom is compassion
and in that way of looking at it body chipped is like the generative impelling cause a buddhahood
karuna compassion the route bodhicitta
the generative impelling cause a boot of it
but other times people look at it and say
nobody checked her is the fuck is the root is the found is the ground upon which the process starts and bodhicitta
is the motive in the process and bodhicitta is the goal
while i think i just might mentioned now again that
one can speak of
two aspects or two levels of the mind of enlightenment one the conventional
the other the ultimate
so one is conventional and it's it's conventional in terms of ritual and process
it's a my it's a it's a mind which is like if kind of an ordinary thinking mind
with motive with motivations and intentions
and words can reach it
anna can express well words can reach it
it can be known
it's an unusual mind to occur but it it's in some sense a conventional mind and this is the mind that we start to develop by ritual and process and practice and then the other the ultimate one the complete one
attained the goal
it is enlightenment itself
and it's a mind that no words can reach
so i propose that this distinction is made between these two kinds of boy to the conventional the ultimate
could be an attempt to account
for the difference between
ritual or conventional enactment of a resolution
ritual enactment of a resolution
like for example practicing meditation as the ritual an accident
of a resolution
as a conventional way to express
your interest in realizing buddhahood practicing meditation as an expression of your intention of your wish to attain enlightenment for the welfare of others have some people practice meditation as an expression of their resolution to attain enlightenment
for their for their own benefit
pips many people practice meditation in order to
well like have peace and ease and bliss
so that's a ritual that's an inaccurate of that intention
but the we can also sit in meditation and we can also practice giving as a ritual
enactment of the resolution to attain buddhahood for the welfare of others we can practice ethical precepts as a conventional ritual an accident
not just a rich on achmad of ethics but original enactment of ethics for the sake of realizing buddhahood for the welfare of all beings and so on all these enactments
this is the conventional bodhicitta at work
and then there is
the presence
of enlightenment it's not a process really
doesn't have to be a processes it's a goal
it's a silent stillness in which all the activities of benefiting beings are contained
it's a presence
a fully realized presence
which the other body chapter is dedicated to realize
it's awakening itself
so these two kinds of bullshit dirk are kind of
helping us balance these two
hey if you request in remind me i
i will discuss the bodhisattva vow
but now i just wanted to say that them
this idea of the two kinds of bodhicitta
can reflect can help us understand how a conviction
and good intentions can exist next to a lack of conviction and a desire for what is not good
so this this ideal can be both a clear and heartfelt conviction and a distant goal
he can have this conviction
to to live it as an awakened buddha for the welfare of all beings really had that conviction really want to do good for the welfare of all beings and also there is
a lack of interest in that
and actually some interesting doing some unwholesome things
and that's that and i think i've mentioned here before that when making a vow any kind of vile but i mean any kind of our to do wholesome things but especially this particular vow
part of what makes the vow
really effective is if the person making the vow is aware that they have at least one contradictory intention
if you wish to do this in you can see any contradictory intentions
your vow probably will not be as effective and other people probably won't if they knew that you'd
did you act couldn't find any contradictory intentions and yourself to this great wow
they they they they they might not think you're realistic and they might not
yeah they might not really think you know what you're talking about but if you actually can see that there's some contradiction to this resolution that there's something contradicting
our this bodhicitta
that's actually
so into in discussing this or that there is some
if the word dangerous right but there is some me
ah possibility of speaking and using words like perfection
a buddha in some senses perfect in the sense of being complete completely trained
so i just want to mention that the it another dimension of this bodhicitta is
yeah is is to say that there's something that there is a presence in this world
there is there is a presence in the world of imperfect human beings there is a presence of this
there is a presence of this perfect awakening
in the world of imperfect human beings that's part of what
being implied here
there was a historical buddha butter butter
when through the historical process of dying
but there is another kind of buddha which is not a historical buddha
which is the pretty which is this bodhicitta
which is present with us imperfect human beings
and in our despite the fact that a
it's unlikely
that that
even the idea
of the body chapter
what occur to human being
even that's unlikely but even for someone for whom the idea hasn't even appeared it's still it's still present in their life
there is
there's that quite a bit of interesting discussion about the about the
arising of this body
and i just mentioned one one example of that and that is that
again the ancestor dogan says boy but body cheated
doesn't arise by itself
and you don't make it a rise in yourself and buddha's don't make it a rise in themselves or yourself
sizes in the
in the communion or the
enquiry and response between living beings and the boy checked her
bulletin is present but the the arising of it in a in a living being the body it doesn't make it happen
living being doesn't make it happen but the living being
in communion with the body chapter
in that communion the body should arises in a living being
so again as part of it
nice opportunities class is to provide an opportunity for this communion
make yourself available
for this meeting with enlightenment
it's it's present already all we have to do is open to it and be still and not be distracted and then the communion can occur the communication can occur and in that communication the the ordinary conventional thing
of having it i was having decision in us that you would like to do this
this life of the bodhisattva
that could arise in us
through this communication to this communion
and then if it arises then we have to take care of it
now if you lose it at if the rises and you don't take care of it you will lose it if you don't take care of it i will lose it
ones is born he had to take care of it it is like a baby
it's like a baby buddha
or it also sometimes said to be is like a candle that has a flame
and a candle with the flame as you know it can be blown out by a mild breeze
by a zephyr
but if you take care of this candle
the flame will grow it will turn into
like a forest fire
and then when the wind blows on a just get stronger
but between the little claim at the beginning again dogan news example when it first arises it's like a firefly
and and this arising in this firefly happens when the sentient beings in communication with a galactic firestorm
which is going on all the time
when the communication occurs is little firefly happens if we take care of it it can grow
but if his last than you just gotta open up communications again and it be born again and take care of it again and if you stop taking care of what you'll lose it
take you then you gotta find it again
we take care of it again and you'd take care it again it will grow
it will grow and grow it will grow into
what it arose together with and was never separate from
he will realize what it was never separate from
that's enough for tonight
i mean none enough for just me talking zero anything you'd like to bring up about this sir
and rica

did you say are dealing with the physical plane and funny your face


you seem not to be able to find balance
well this the second you set it right there he said be present with this physical party or life be present with your daughter moving in with you
that neat you need to do that you need to learn to be still
with your daughter moving in with your you need to we need to learn to be still
and and have i might not get activated around
external physical reality or internal psychic phenomena we need to learn that otherwise we're going to keep illusion we're going to keep losing the bodhicitta
and if you lose the body checked them
in the early phases of it you're going to it's natural to have grief in the grief is actually will help you
so ah when you say i don't want to live this way i don't know what you mean but the way i hope you don't live as i hope you don't live the way
of getting
but the things are getting distracted by the bodhisattva does not try to avoid those things that you can be distracted by they tried to be
meet them
and continue to practice being
quiet and still with these things and they're hard to be quiet and still with but if we lose the quiet and stillness we lose the body checked to unless the politics is very strong but at the bullets it is very strong
then it's easy for us not to get distracted by external or internal things
but we have to do this we have to do this
now when you get distracted and you know it that's there's some presence there
there's some stillness there that you'll notice that you're distracted and you notice that you lost something that was really what you wanted to be taken care of in order to take care of your daughter
in order to really help your daughter you want to do you want to take care of this thing
if you lose this thing you've been more difficult for you to really help your daughter and be good mother
so you really want to take care of this
and then your daughter shows up and you can your mind gets activated
he lose the stillness and quiet and then you lose the body chipped to
you start over
where did he go find it again
and then again not to try to take care of it again and lose it again and tried take care of it again and lose it again
yeah that's normal
difficult and painful but normal and yet every time you lose it it's good to confess
to the body chapter to the buddha's confess i lost it buddha
the help me find it again please
and the buddha always help you find it again if you ask for it the communications set up you get remembered again and the boy doesn't say now this time we've my don't lose it
the buddhist patient with as losing over and over never cuts off the buddhist stays present with us no matter how many times we lose it
so nice nice with summertime and eleven is easy
fisher jumping in the cotton is high
your dad is rich in your mama's good looking
so concentrate little baby
even why you cry
really concentrate this summer really make time in your data to be still and quiet and take care of this bodhicitta
really work on that this summer try to remember all the time
this body what is it again are you
well it's i really i really want to realize awakening in order to help all people and also it is the awakening which is near by all the time and i'm in communication with that remember that
and take care yourself so you can remember and be still and balanced with it and if you lose your balance
confess and repent that lost her balance and start over
we're all gonna be doing that with you
yes vira


a bodhisattvas can be vert you know very very enlightened and still be imperfect in order to help people
you know when they're really when the really very advanced they're imperfect only
lot of compassion they could check out and they could go to perfect ville
they could go to nirvana

yeah they they stay in they remain in imperfection in order to help other imperfect beings
that's that's otherwise they could check out of imperfection and go into nirvana hotel where they're perfect
what did you mean
think about it
yeah that's the well that's the way the enlightened body sought for their imperfect they just do it as a favor
they they they transgress into imperfection in order to be able to help other beings as that they don't do it by they don't go into imperfection in an imperfect way
they go into it in a compassionate way they they intentionally they intentional the go into imperfection they mean to other people going to prefer imperfection half consciously or not unconsciously they consciously they actually look at the if they look carefully this is in perth
affection and i'm going there they clearly discern the trouble troubled area and go into the troubled area
but they are actually in trouble they actually feel the pain
during the same place but they get there are with intentional intentionally transgress we say
knowingly and willingly they go into imperfection
and that's where they want to live
because that's where they make that's where buddhism are made


and so you don't get ready to have a little communion with buddha okay
get ready for that
miss this bodhicitta might arise in you
this unselfish thought might arise in you
we actually think of doing something
ah living a life for the welfare of others that thought might arise in you if you're quiet
and a patient with your physical discomfort
and been quiet and patient with your physical discomfort
will be good for you and indirectly good for everybody else
but it also provides an opportunity for this body mind to be born
that's this classical smart both it's about both doing something good for yourself which helps other people but also that good thing which for yourself also makes you ready for a meeting with the buddhas and for the rising of unselfishness in yeah
you in your mind
a heroic
how unselfish thought
a heroic unselfish thought about a certain kind of life could arise in you doing the same practice situ that you're doing now
jean paul paul
there was something talk about a lot of claim
she's returning presence
that's not clinging presence
comedy or taking care of bodhicitta what do you have an experience
i gathered does not same thing is i mean
i can imagine that might be my effort to hang onto a wonderful experience
i think campaign
not be that

well yeah i think you said dear here there's a meditation practice of cultivating presence
without clinging to the presence at you're cultivating yeah
that's not a clue
he talked
trying to
boss come back to
come back to
right you can be frustrating

i'm worried about
some suffering
and not to
oh yes it is counterproductive but that's why i'm referring to i'm referring to what you said beginning about the meditation on presence and so what you learn their would apply to take care of bodhicitta would be the same
if you have a bulleted to arises
and you don't pay attention to it you'll lose it
if you pay attention to it and cling to it you'll lose it
yeah so the waiver
hot are you want to cultivate so now you got the body chit to how do you take care of it
not by clinging to it similar to how do you take care of concentration not by clinging to it
so you perfect concentration by giving a note by giving it away
once you've got it
you don't cling to it that what you said at the beginning with body checked the first way you take care of it
one nadia you you're aware of it you're taken care of it right the first way you take care of it is by practicing giving
not not by not by keeping the body chipped chapter
if you've got very chatty and you practice giving that is an expression of bodhicitta
finally rescued
yeah exact the moon
you give are beings your bodhicitta exact so there's bodhicitta there's vows
which am
growing up out of the voyage to all the things you want to all things we want to commit to doing for beings and then there's dedication of the merit of all this so we we don't we dedicate we give our body checked at it to the people watch that the bullshit was for in the first place we'd give it away we don't claim
do it
we let it go and then at that
cultivate it it's the first practice then we also practice ethics
and we also practice patients on these are the ways we care for the bullshit none of them are about holding onto the bodhicitta
they're not holding on to anything not even this and you know especially the best thing you don't want to hold onto
if you hold on the bad things is not so bad
if you hold on a bad thing and ruin it it's not that bad
but to hold on body kit is very sad
but it's not the end of the story is just sad for now and feel the sadness and then we'll know what know how did i meet but he checked again and go back to your meditation on being present but not clinging to presence being still but now claim to being still
now your present again now you can meet
it can meet the reality
of this mind and in that meeting again this this resolution gonna rise again
and the now this time don't cling to it
to say thank you for coming to visit
stay as long as you like and may i give you away by the way
and bodhicitta says by all means that's said i'm here for on a gift i'm a great this is grace
this is grace you don't hold on grace you give grace
and that cultivates the grace more comes and you give that away in more comes in it grows and grows
and if you slip
confess a chick slipped
in the presence of the buddha's same please buddhas bodhisattvas pay attention me i i try to hold on to this great thing and i lost it
i wish to start over
and then you can start over

yes totally
so my my first exposure to buddhism was
through a band actually my hometown
get really was the first time
the goal of buddhism or even seattle
and nirvana and starbucks
the and was that are the microsoft
and i but there's there's a subtle sort of
something i missed their
but the way he said a few minutes ago that that the goal of them
buddhism is buddha head
just nirvana it's not just night the gold buddhism isn't buddhahood it's buddhahood
for the welfare of all beings
i thought that was better
the welfare of all beings is would have had that buddhahood a could be anything but feel for a hobby
well you're right but you gotta snickered the gotta save him next part yeah well it's okay it's not by itself brewers not by itself is for the welfare of all beings he saved myself it turns into something solid that is not
and so that's a good reminder because that's really deep seated in me that day this idea that the the goal of everything there were doing here is nirvana and we just simply because i was my first impression and to can grow beyond
that after
is written from the base they're talking about you could still say that the goal of buddhism's nirvana and just says is nirvana for everybody it's nirvana for all beings
it's not a nirvana for the individual band member

anything else tonight marie

it's gotta be body speech and mind not just mind yeah that's that's what makes about it's not just about are not just mental
however when it first arises it may not be debate there may be no physical or vocal expression of it just a resolution
that's the has been given to you you you are resolved in your mind

bodies vows your body speech and mind
for to be effective it has to be witnessed also
it to invite witnesses dear to your physical
a compliment to the mental resolution
and all this is all this is conventional a ritual
which again is not mourn just by conventional ritual budget is born because there's another body chatter we do not come up with this body to by ourselves somebody's helping us but nobody's doing it for us
and we're not doing it by ourselves but if it arises in us and then we so that's part that's the first part then we enact it
and this through various levels and dimensions

yeah it's still mental it but if it's good but the mentals getting better
if you're getting more into it and and an edge as your imagination in a blooms with no attachment to it it's it's a stronger resolution the resolution growing
yeah like
you know i just came in my head was that i read this book when i wasn't before i can present center called black elk speaks
and he had a he had a wonderful vision you know of his of the of helping his people of his of his nation being
he told his teacher teaches at some day you should enact that
but he didn't enact it for a long time
he did i think he didn't enacted until after
some real tough stuff happened but then he didn't act it and it was
it was a it was a great enactment you know and it was then the vow was really than his vow was out in the world and changed the world for his for himself and his people but he had this great
this great resolution in his mind but it wasn't time for him to do the ceremony and he did the ceremony and maybe you know he did the ceremony with a sizable representation of his nation participated in the ceremony
and it really helped them deal with the misery of their situation
just like when somebody
speaks and physically and bodies this is such a bow said mean such a resolution and makes it a vow which is witnessed it changes the world
not just a person's mind but the person's mind as changed first
and also internally when you when you feel this resolution you have lots of practice opportunities to be with that again to be quiet with that and not clean to that and let it bloom you know let it let it live in
without moving and and then see if you can
express it outwardly without moving
without clinging to it without trying to get it without a easy to control the situation but just offer this this wow
anything else tonight

is it ok to be excited yeah of course but i would like you i would like you to be completely still with your excitement
if your name mary what is it
tomorrow june and tomorrow


endeavour he could definitely be taking a new job
that's actually
no no
however if you do this whatever closing your word were turns into religious close
but doesn't it

you can do many different ways and in the sense any new any new job you take
could be an expression of this of this brigitta
cause and many the ceremonies you're familiar with in a sense the person they're if they are taking an object taking a new job
and the job you take is connected to what you know the vows you make like in may be our next week i'll talk about it but just say tonight that the different kinds of vows you make a different difference of ceremonies
are the different jobs is you're signing up for
depending on the vows or the precepts that that you're talking about are there that are they giving and and in pre and ethics and sign or are they just giving or is it some other kind of work
the practice of enthusiasm is really the practice of work whatever kind of work you're doing to do it enthusiastically
as an expression of bodhicitta so it doesn't have you don't have to have
any particular outfit on
that's that's the thing about bullshit boys out but you don't have to wear monks outfit but you can wear amongst up it
you don't have to wear monks outfit in the body but bodhisattvas office can where monks outfits but also bodhisattvas can do have fancy hair do's and were lots of jewels
they can do that too
are they


no you you don't have said you say i'm you say in this case you say i will do this i accept his job i'll do this job
and you're doing it as an expression if an enactment of bodhicitta
i will do this job i will follow these i will follow these precepts
