▍The world is like a “dream pizza”

When you fully recognize emptiness, you will get total freedom and liberation! But as long as our shared common shared is not gone, the samsaric show is still continuing, as in a dream.

Let us say you are hiking in the Himalaya mountains and you find that there’s no pizza up there, but you really want to eat pizza. One night you have a wonderful dream in which someone was making pizza, and he said, ’Hi, would you like some pizza?’ And you happily thanked him and take the pizza. In the dream it’s a hot, aromatic pizza, with the sizzling sound of a newly baked pizza. And then you were so happy.

The pizza in the dream was quite hot, and so you could not touch it with your hands. The smell was so nice, it seemed to have some weight and the pizza just looked perfect.

You were so happy and considered it so precious, so you began to do some special prayers and offering. When your eyes were closed, a big bird came and took your pizza. You felt so sad in the dream and when you woke up, you realised that your pillow was wet with tears.

Was that dream pizza real or not?

You can say it was real, and also that it was not real.

The pizza in the dream was real. You could see, you could hear the sizzling sound, you could have the tasty pizza. When you had the pizza in the dream, you felt so happy. When was taken by the bird, you felt so disappointed.

These events existed in the dream. But at the same time, it was also not existing. Because the dream-pizza didn’t have even a single atom of real pizza. Dream-pizza is not real, yet it is not nothing. These two are one, that is a good example of emptiness. Now all of us and the entire universe are like dream-pizza. We are not real, yet not nothing. That is the main meaning of the Heart Sutra: form is emptiness, emptiness is form.”

▍The key of freedom—recognizing this reality as only a dream

Let me ask you a question. If you meet a tiger in a dream, what is the best solution when you don’t have to wake up?

The right answer is to recognize that you are dreaming.

Recognize “dream as dream” is the most powerful solution, and key to freedom in the dream.

If you can recognize it’s a dream, the dream does not need to disappear. You can go on dreaming, waving your hand to the tiger, and he won’t eat you.

You can fly in the sky, walk on the ocean, or jump into the fire without getting burned. At the same time you don’t need to follow the dream rules, that is real freedom.

But at the same time, you can have your dream, still enjoy your dream.

That is the same meaning of emptiness, samsara is just like a dream. When you fully recognize samsara as emptiness, just like recognizing that you are in a dream, then you can be free from karma, free from subject and object. You are free from time, matter, yes, no, both, neither. You are free from all these boxes.

At the same time, we can still see, hear, just like in the dream, everything can appear, yet we are free from it.

▍Practice again and again, transformation will happen automatically.

Now you all understand emptiness. But are you free now? Liberated now?

Actually, no because the knowing of emptiness has to be transformed at three levels:

1. intellectual level;
2. experiential (or feeling) level; and
3. direct realization level.

From the intellectual level to the experiential level, and then to the direct realization level, you have to practice emptiness again and again, to analyze who am “I”?

My body is emptiness, my mind is emptiness, everything is emptiness. To recognize I am emptiness, and be with that.

If you can find the ‘I’, see it like a dream; if you cannot find it, just be with that.

You have to practice this again and again. Then transformation will happen automatically.

That’s the main practice. Even if we presently don’t have any direct realization, or even if we have some doubt, it’s ok. The Buddha said, “If someone had doubt about emptiness, even that doubt can become the cause of purifying negativity, bad karma, and become seed of liberation.” Now we all have some belief about emptiness therefore we already have the cause of liberation.

2021亞洲德噶線上課程|開心禪三階第三堂開示摘要

主講:詠給・明就仁波切
日期:2021年9月26日 下午3:00(香港/台灣/北京時間)

▍世間就像「夢中的披薩」

當我們完全地證悟空性後,你將獲得真正的自由和解脫!但在共業尚未消失前,仍然會上演著世俗的顯現,就像是在做一場夢。

舉個例子:有天你到喜馬拉雅山,發現山上沒有賣披薩,但是你又特別想吃披薩,所以在某一晚你做了個美夢,在夢中有個人正在山頂上烤披薩,並且向你打招呼,問你想不想來塊披薩?於是你很高興地表達感謝並拿了披薩。在夢中那是一塊熱騰騰、香氣逼人的披薩,還帶著剛出爐吱吱作響的聲音。

你感到非常的開心並十分珍視,於是開始做祈請與供養。就在你閉上眼睛的時候,飛來了一隻大鳥,叼走了你的披薩,以致於你在夢中非常的傷心。當你醒來時,枕頭上甚至還沾了你的眼淚。

那麼,這個夢中的披薩是真實的嗎?

可以說是真實的,也可以說是不真實的。

披薩在夢中是實有的。你能看到它、聽到它吱吱作響的聲音、並品嚐一口美味的披薩。當你在夢中拿到披薩時,你感到開心。而當披薩被鳥叼走時,你感到失落。

這些在夢中都是實有的,但同時也是不存在的,因為夢中的披薩,連一個真實的原子都沒有。所以夢中的披薩既不是實有,又不是什麼都沒有,二者是合一的,這就是空性的例子。此刻的我們和整個宇宙,就像是夢中的披薩,雖然不是真實存在,但也非什麼都沒有。這就是《心經》主要的意義 ——「色即是空,空即是色」。


▍解脫的關鍵——認出這只是場夢

接著問大家一個問題,當你在夢中遇到老虎時,如何可以不用醒來,又同時能夠解決這個問題?

正確的答案是:認出你在做夢。

認出「夢只是夢」,是最有力量的解決方法,也是我們在夢中可以解脫的關鍵。

如果你能認出來,夢就不需要消失。你可以繼續做夢,在夢中你可以跟老虎揮手,牠也不會吃掉你 ; 你可以在天空飛翔、在海上行走,或是躍入火中而不被灼傷。這時候你就不需要再遵循夢境的規則,也就是真正的自由。

同時你仍可以擁有你的夢,享受這個夢境。

這跟空性是一樣的道理,輪迴就像夢一般。當你完全地證悟空性後,就像認出你在做夢一樣,我們便能從業力、主客、二元對立、時間、物質和是、不是、兩者都是、兩者都不是......這些框框中解脫。

於此同時,我們仍然可以看到、可以聽到,就像在夢中一樣,一切都可以顯現,但是我們卻從中解脫了。


▍一再地練習,轉化就會自然地發生

此刻大家都理解了空性,但是大家解脫、自由了嗎?

事實上並沒有,因為對空性的認識,需要經過三個層面慢慢地轉化:

1.理解的層面
2.感受的層面
3.直接證悟的層面

從認知的層面,轉化到體驗,直到直接證悟,你需要一再一再地的去修持空性——觀察「我」是誰?我的身體是空性的,我的心也是空性的,所有都是空性的 ; 認識到「我」是空性的,安住在其中......

如果找不到,就跟找不到在一起 ; 如果找得到,就視一切如夢如幻。

透過一再的練習,轉化就會發生。

以上就是主要的修持,即便我們現在沒有達到直接的證悟,甚至心存疑惑都沒有關係。佛陀說:「哪怕是對空性的疑惑,都可以成為淨化負面、惡業的因以及解脫的種子。」而現在我們都對空性有基本的相信,因此大家已經具備了解脫的因。

Taking The Bodhisattva Vow with Mingyur Rinpoche, Oct 9, 2021

Within each of us is basic, innate goodness. At times, however, this goodness can be overshadowed by confusion, anger, greed, and other afflicted emotions. A bodhisattva is one who strives to continually recognize the basic goodness of all beings, including oneself, regardless of how they act. In the Tibetan Buddhist tradition, this process includes taking this commitment formally in what is called the bodhisattva vows. In this event, Mingyur Rinpoche will introduce the bodhisattva ideal and confer the bodhisattva vow through which you can enter into the profound lineage of bodhisattva practitioners.

Translation will be offered in Chinese, French, German, Portuguese, Russian and Spanish.

Attendance is free, but registration is required to receive a link to the event.
Registration will close 1 hour in advance of the event.

▍Can you differentiate “true relative” from “fake relative”?

When you look at the Buddha’s teachings in the sutras, he mentioned two realities: relative reality and absolute reality.

These two realities are always with us: relative reality is not true, it is fake; what is true, is absolute reality.

Absolute reality is the way things are, and relative reality is the way things appear. They seem to look alike but what we see and experience is relative reality.

Within the relative truth, there are two: the “fake relative truth”, and the “true relative truth”. In the case of absolute truth, there the ultimate reality.

If we drink this glass of water, it is good for our body, it’s real, which is the true relative. When you squeeze your eyes to see the glass, you will see double images. The double glasses are not true, it is a “fake relative”. Something which does not exist in the relative level is “fake relative”.

Here are other examples to explain: (some of them are made by students)

1. When we look up at the sky at night, we see clouds floating over the top of the trees. It feels as it the trees are moving but this is perception is “fake relative”, while the trees are “true relative”.

2. The reflection of moon in the lake
The moon in the lake doesn’t exist, so the image of the moon is “fake relative”. But the real moon in the sky is “true relative”.

3. Worldly love
If someone shows you fake love which doesn’t exist, it’s “fake relative”. If you have real love, that is “true relative”.

4. Worries
Scientists say that 99% of our worries may not be true, so actually lots of them are “fake relative”.

5. Rinpoche on computer screen
If you perceive that is real, that is “fake relative”, but if you see my image on the screen as not me, that is “true relative”. So “fake relative” or “true relative” depends on how we see.

▍Suffering is caused by the fake ‘me’ or unhealthy self

From the absolute level, both the fake relative and true relative are not real. But within the relative, there are two: “fake of fake” and “true of fake”. When we practice, we need to eliminate the fake relative, but still need the other two: true relative and absolute reality.

Why do we need to remove the fake ‘me’? Because it is the cause of suffering, fear, disappointment, hatred, panic, depression, the five poisons and so on. For example, there is jealousy when we think, ‘he or she is better than me.’ The jealousy comes from the fake ‘me’.


When we practice more, we can see the fake ‘me’ and the healthy sense of ‘me’ will emerge and help us understand ourselves and others (compassion). If we continue to look, we will discover the luminous self (the ‘self beyond self’).

▍Awareness is like sunlight, the “unhealthy self” will melt away automatically

So how to get rid of this “unhealthy self”? If you want to cut off this “fake self” from now on, it doesn’t work.

Remember “pizza meditation”? When you say “no pizza, no pizza”, what happened? You will think about pizza more.

If you don’t want “unhealthy self”, only want “healthy self”, it doesn’t work. So, what we can do? Actually, very easy. You don’t have to do anything. You don’t have to get rid of this unhealthy self or try to make a healthy self.

All you need to do is one thing -- whatever comes in your mind, be with it. When you see this “me”, just be with the feeling of “me”.

It is like putting ice under the sun. The sunlight will melt the ice automatically. The sun doesn’t think that “I need to melt that ice”, and the ice also doesn’t think that “I need to be melted by the sun”. Things are happening naturally. Awareness is like the sunlight, when the innate awareness expands, unhealthy self will automatically melt away.
