World Jen Chen Buddhism - Voice of Bliss
 
Born in China in 1918, Venerable Master Shen Kai devoted his life to carrying out his compassionate vows of bringing us wisdom of the Buddha's teachings. He tirelessly travelled internationally answering requests for Dharma talks, wrote many books on Buddhist practice, and founded Jen Chen Buddhism centres, foundations and publishing houses in many countries.

Our last session is a time not only to wrap things up but also to dedicate our efforts and all the merit we have acquired. Whether we are aware of it or not, Alan says, dedication is an everyday part of our lives, as we keep goals in mind for the mundane things that we do to make ourselves happy. In our dharma lives, dedication is important for ...…
 
Alan starts the session by explaining that the whole point of Dzogchen practice is to see your own face as dharmakaya. With this being the case, the question comes up what stands in the way? What's the obstacle? The answer, your mind. We are mind havers by definition - sentient beings - and having a mind stands in the way of realizing our true ...…
 
At the begin of the session, Alan returns briefly to the theme of balancing earth (Theravada/Pali Canon) and sky (Mahayana/Dz ogchen). In the teachings of the Pali Canon, vipashyanna is primarily handled with the Four Applications of Mindfulness, because we very naturally identify with our body, feelings, mind and mental states. By attending cl ...…
 
As a preface to the meditation, Alan starts by balancing earth and sky, balancing Buddha´s teachings as a human being talking to human beings in the Pali Canon and the Dzogchen tradition. In this practice, we come back to the intervening domain of appearances and Alan introduces the instructions that Buddha gave to Bāhiya, in a very precise tra ...…
 
By way of introducing this session’s practice, Alan notes that in our root text we first entered the door of emptiness by investigating personal and phenomenal identity via the teachings of Avalokiteśvara . Today we enter the door of appearances -- exploring the manner in which appearances are delusive -- by way of the teachings of the Lake-Bor ...…
 
Topics include: - five kayas (dharmakaya, sambkogakaya, nirmanakaya, svabhavikakaya, vajrakaya) - three categories (mind, expanse, pith instructions) - Buddhahood Without Meditation (view, meditation, conduct, fruition) - person (gang - filled, zag - contaminated) - two types of grasping at self (person, phenomena) - three types of ignorance (c ...…
 
Alan begins the session with a brief point on lojong, and the importance of being able to integrate whatever comes up in our lives into our dharma practice. Otherwise, when life goes well we’ll have little incentive to practice, and when difficulties arise, we won’t have time for practice. He emphasize that while practicing lojong, we should be ...…
 
Alan says that when we meditate, we often have the feeling that there are three entities present: the mind; the meditator; and the one who is evaluating the meditation. This sense of self is not constant, but appears in surges, especially when grasping or reification are particularly strong. Today’s afternoon meditation is a vipashyana practice ...…

Alan begins his teaching recalling the prophecy that in times of degeneration, the teachings of Dzogchen will spread. He highlights the importance of the profound interrelationship of Dzogchen view, mediation and conduct, comments that this triad is diametrically opposed to the prevalent view of modernity which is driven by materialism, hedonis ...…

Alan then comments that if we are operating from the perspective of a sentient being, it is going to take at least 3 countless eons to achieve awakening. But, if we realise emptiness with the very subtle min ...…

Shamatha, Vipashyana, Mahamudra, and Dzogchen
 
Alan begins the session by frontloading the silent meditation session, and in the follow up of the morning session, asked us to investigate the distinctive qualities of space and awareness. To help us in that investigation, we brought forth the idea that space implies the quality of extension, unlike awareness. That being the case, these were t ...…
 
We begin the session with a review of a central practice in shamatha, mindfulness of breathing. Despite being so simple, mindfulness of breathing has its profundity validated, for instance, by being the practice the Buddha did both on the night of his awakening, and also at the time he entered his parinirvana. Alan went on to emphasize the impo ...…

Fall 2015 Stage of Generation
 
Now that we have made a pledge, a promise to sentient beings to lead them to enlightenment, we need to come up with a plan for how to do so. It really is not practical until you are a Buddha. You must achieve enlightenment to carry through with this promise. If you wake up every morning with that resolve to achieve Buddhahood for the sake of al ...…
 
Alan discusses the approach in the meditation chapter of Santideva's A Guide to The Bodhisattva Way of Life which develops shamatha by boddhicitta. Meditating on the equality of self with others develops equal worthiness of all to be free from suffering, both self-directed and then extending outwards by opening the heart in all directions. Alan ...…
 
The session starts with guided meditation on breathing.

In the silent meditation we are once again asked to balance earth and sky and to proceed at our own pace. After the meditation we finish the transitional process of meditation. The text shows how to get to the point from which you no longer affirm virtue nor do you reject non-virtue; you do not visualize anything; nothing is outside of it. Wher ...…

Silent session, followed by one question regarding the origin of people within a lucid dream. They all stem from the substrate consciousness. Even when lucid, they are not puppets on your string.

My point is merely whether we are conveying the message clearly enough). Yes, we teach the importance of sitting in a balanced way, be it in Lotus, Seiza, on a chair or the like.
