When Asked What He Learned From Naropa, Marpa Said…..

Excerpt From ‘The Life of Marpa The Translator’ by Chogyam Trungpa.

”….. I saw the self-born sambhogakaya (bliss body).

I saw the inner mind as dharmakaya (the unmanifested changeless unborn essence of the universe)

I saw outer appearances as nirmakaya (the earthly physical body subject to change)


If I explain all of my realisation,

Some of you will not be able to contain it in your mind.

If I explain just a corner of it, it is like this:

Having confidence in luminosity

Is indeed the view free from bias or partiality.

Meditation is continuous, like the flowing of a wide river.

By not regarding meditation as limited to the four periods

and by abandoning hypocritical thoughts,

There is no distinction between meditation and post-meditation.

By obtaining the power of both prana (energy) and mind

The fear of samsara (repetitive history, illusion, journeying through fate and circumstance) disappeared long ago.

These are my realisations.”

Generally just Being. Nothing in particular, no claims to fame. I like gardening and the sea, nature, art in all forms from poetry to films and everything in between, and being in the company of my family.
