In death all the components of the body and mind are stripped away and disintegrate. As the body dies, the senses and subtle elements dissolve, and this is followed by the death of the ordinary aspect of the mind, with all its negative emotions of anger, desire, and ignorance. Finally nothing remains to obscure our true nature, as everything that in life has clouded the enlightened mind has fallen away. And what is revealed is the primordial ground of our absolute nature, which is like a pure and cloudless sky.
This is called the dawning of the Ground Luminosity, or Clear Light, where consciousness itself dissolves into the all-encompassing space of truth. The Tibetan Book of the Dead says of this moment:
The nature of everything is open, empty and naked like the sky.
Luminous emptiness, without center or circumference; the pure, naked Rigpa dawns.
very happy to read this, happy to see you. KC says I can also borrow your pics, we can share ?
No problem to borrow and share with me.:)
OK! thank you.
Hi Leo, thank you for your picture and comment. Perhaps when !!!!! my spiritual pathway takes off further, I could be so swamped with writings !!! that I may have less time myself. I do accept that those who are very busy, just do not have time to reply to any comments made to their postings - however I am not there yet!
Perhaps W Wong will be working with you and KC.
Hannah, lovely picture as usual.
Julian, beaurtiful words as usual.
My vote cast from afar, is yours:-)
