An unusually detailed, clear, and complete instruction manual for the meditation practice of Mahamudra, by a renowned eighteenth-century Tibetan master in the Drukpa Kagyu lineage. This guidance manual for the practice of Mahamudra offers detailed instructions for meditation practice from the beginning level to the culmination of the path. Widely regarded as one of the clearest and most comprehensive presentations of the practice of coemergence, or Mahamudra, it presents a step-by-step guide to spiritual exercises that bring the meditator to clear realization of the primordially pure, fully perfect, nondual nature of the mind.
The hunt for a killer leads to a battle between justice and desire… For U.S. marshal Rourke Kincaid, there's the law…and then there's his law. When the two don't agree, he always trusts his instincts. A killing spree has gripped the Northwest, showing a strange connection that only he sees, and now the old rules of justice no longer apply. Forced to turn rogue, he goes deep undercover to track his mysterious female suspect to a quiet, unassuming café in the wild, isolated mountains of Beartooth, Montana. But encountering Callie Westfield complicates his mission in ways he never expected. As suspicious as she seems, her fragile beauty and sexy charm get to Rourke. Then the gory crimes begin anew. With his heart suddenly at war with his instincts, he has only two options. Either turn Callie over to the law, or put everything—including his badge and his life—on the line to protect her.
What is the universe? What does that mean? I will try to explain to those persons who want to know. The universe is the large emptiness we see all around and parts we do not see yet.
It is easy for us to see through it and reach out, and we touch nothing. The universe does exist because there are things that we can touch and feel. There is space around everything; this empty space. It did not exist before any parts or trees, grass, animals, people, so there was emptiness. This is called es or ethrea and exists millions and billions of years ago. There was a super intelligent being, whom we call Jehovah, and Jehovah looked all over this empty space and found no other being or no other part or thing in this emptiness that exists.
He called it ethrea; he found nothing existed besides him. So he thought and thought for quite some time and decided he would create a being called animal, but there was nothing to be like him. "It does not need to look like me. Nothing can be like me. It must have a place to move and a part that helps it move. It must have legs and feet to touch something to move on." So Jehovah discovered that he could speak and lots of stuff would come into existence. "Now how can make this stuff form into balls, or better, I'll call it a planet or nebula.
If I make it go around like a whirlwind, it will come to a center." So he caused the stuff to go round and round, and he discovered it got hot with friction. When it cooled down, it became a large ball, and he called it the sun. Some of the spinning stuff became smaller balls, and he could call those the planets and the smaller ones as moons. There were so many of these planets and moons. What could he do with them? He could make grass and trees and animals and people that could be companions. It would take many years of experiments to do this, and he had so many planets to cause to grow and many years to make the animals able to talk, and they will need to be able to eat.
