In "Nature of Things" - using Gotama's Fourfold Truth and the Noble eight-fold Path - we prove that Gotama direct knowledge is not a Pathless Land. It is scientifically observable, testable and verifiable - despite conflicted grasping and enslaving people from all organized religions where Buddhism is a part - throughout his 45+ years of life time with his Sangha. Unfortunately, most members of Buddhist Sangha under both Theravada / Mahayana and followers are unable to meet his definition of "Mindfulness / Passing the Gateway-to-Oneness" while turning his Noble eightfold Path upside down into [ Ethical Code > Concentration > Prajna - Giới > Định > Tuệ ][D39] making his "Right Understanding and Right Motivation (Prajna division of the Noble Path) the outcome of their indoctrinated imaginary process.
Gotama's right-side-up of his Noble eightfold Path - due to one's innate Buddha Nature - starts fron one's present level of Right Understanding and Right Motivation - Samadhi-Prajna to keep one away from criminals and professional scam artists if one still has some minimum conscience since one's quality is measurable at the feedback of [ Plan >< Execution ]. By scientifically delivering technologies to enable most people - irrespective of life styles, cultures, religions, social classes - direct experience with the transcendental states and beyond, qualified at different depths of his Right Mindfulness we can effortlessly wipe out these professional scam artists, cheating humanity for many thousands years in the darkness driven by Fears and Greeds.
Let's look at (1) the core reasons behind Buddhist Tautologies and Duality - contrary to its claimed of touching "Oneness / the Source of all Diversities", then (2) the breakthrough of this Vicious Circle, and finally (3) possible modern solutions according to human nature. In the breakthrough, we start from the modern context of Psychological Suffering[R6.3] and its modern treatments in Krishnamurti's dialogue with his offered solution in the "Intensity of Attention", a piece of Truth picked up by him and personally made known to the World in 60+ years of his life time.
1. Buddhist Tautologies and Duality
Thanks to the power of memory and abstract thinking, humanity has broken the barriers of physical limitations to wider explorations of its environments. Memory and thinking are both conditioned, and a conditioned cannot see other conditioned As It Is. To gain a Comparative Advantage in the fitness of survival, all "isms" where religions are parts swinging from one extreme to another of manifested things with brute forces of extreme violence and/or cheating intelligence as evidenced in entire human history of conquering empires and religions. The longer memory carries with it innumerable outdated marks such as phobia, fears, uncontrollable urges, abnormal sex drives, greeds and power, etc, to render one unable to use the senses for seeing "Thing As It Is" but distorted and colored Image / Word / Thought that drive the Volition toward Sufferings due to Wrong Effort. The within-the-box abstract thinking sucks one deeper and deeper into its Abyss of religious and philosophy tautology that only recently we can logically prove their "cul-de-sac" using ontology system of [ assumption > model > taxonomy ].
Gotama's communities of monks / nuns and followers fall into these biological traps of accumulated more and more memory and hallucinated thinking[R14] - rather than Empty of the Contents for Rejuvenation and Freshness to properly use the senses[D42], memory, and thinking with something Beyond from Consciousness Technologies - to turn his discoveries completely upside down, messing their own lives and the lives of others in their Greeds of master-slaves relationships since most do not have qualified "Mindfulness" and "Prajna" in his advice and answer to Ajita's questions[D21], explicitly stated below to spell out the importance and relevance of Gotama's discoveries with personal verification for modern living. We will expose the observable living quality of Gotama Mindfulness and Prajna, plus their roles in knowing more about oneself which is effortless similar to a light (Prajna) and darkness (Ignorance) in contrast to conflicting process of duality since a conditioned cannot see other conditioned As It Is.
One is not solely mechanical within-the-box thinking. Limited oneself to this narrow scope, one will soon be successfully challenged by machine-learning Intelligence and very likely surpassed by massive data-processing of computer. Due to the Dependent Nature of existence, and one is Not Alone nor the Only Intelligent being of this universe, one's Consciousness can have a higher Abstraction Level known by past explorers as the Oneness or "ET" Higher Self. Discovering and accessing the Source Energy in Oneness, one can delegate most of mechanical works to machine learning just like the use of washing and drying machines and have more time to self-selfless exploration of the Inner Peace from The Source in Oneness for a Right Effort in many what-if scenarios.
Gotama pegged his qualified "Mindfulness" at "Equanimity third level" of Transcendental Inner Peace[D28] while most monks and followers cannot reach even the Gateway-to-Oneness / Thing-As-It-Is without Conflict due to the failure of Detachment-Born in Grasping of all mundane and non-mundane things such as Nirvana that they do not know nor have, yet cheating others in their utopia of Nirvana and Pari-Nirvana to make very unworthy living. Since most do not have "Mindfulness" or know "Nirvana", they rely on Sutra recitation and Praying[R14] for memory accumulation while engaging the thinking in the "cul-de-sac" and tautology of thought process such as "Meditation on Emptiness" at thought level unable to reach Transcendental Inner Peace (TIP) in dissolving the contents, or Vipassana in holding / concentrating the mind on something to destroy unceasing thought of their continuously chatting mind. Please challenge all monks / nuns who have been blah blah blah of Buddhist Mindfulness - including the claimed enlighten monk Thich Nhat Hanh, the Dalai Lama XIV, and the claimed Dharma King Gyalwang Drukpa XII - their actual know-how of the process[R2] of dissolving / emptying the gross conflicting duality toward "Oneness / Thing-As-It-Is without Conflicts / Nothingness" and the effect of that process on the way out to conflicting relative existence.
Here is an answer from Bodhidharma[D32.1] on the Art of No Conflict Inside - No Conflict Outside[D32] and the deadly serious need of accessing the "Oneness" within the reach of one's innate Buddha Nature to solve the Issue called Dukkha by Gotama who claimed to have the solution[D25]. In that outside-the-box higher mind - the Source of Oneness - one can (1) Know the unchanged unborn in the changing (viparinama-dukkha) and conditioned (sankhara-dukkha) existence, (2) See the optimal non-conflicting solution of [ 1 + 1 > 2 ] out of a complicated issue and its strategic position to be in, (3) Create the Right conditions and sense the Right Time and Place for an Effortless Action with maximum results toward the Right Direction, (4) Nullify adverse effects. Few dedicated explorers have touched this Oneness from different angles, known as the Pathless Land by Krishnamurti. We take Gotama's approach, starting from one's present level of consciousness to scientifically work out optimal conditions for reaching this Source of Oneness with testable helps of positive and normative tools.
1.1 First Tautology:
[ Ignorance >< Not understanding Fourfold Truth ]
The tautology is implied in Buddhist doctrinal "cul-de-sac" of [ Virtue > Concentration > Prajna ]. It is a tautology because according to them, (1) due to Ignorance one cannot understand the Fourfold Truth, and (2) because of not understanding the Fourfold Truth - inherited by Buddhist Sangha - one is ignorant. Implicit in that inheritance, Buddhist Sangha claims their role in maintaining and spreading the Fourfold Truth. Buddhist monks and nuns have failed the assigned job due to "painting Gotama's discoveries" as a Utopia, rather than a scientific "Nature of Things" to be Tested, Verified, and Implemented serving Humanity, Making Life Easier and Happier.
The core reason behind this tautology is the multi-aspects of "Greedy Self" from Buddhist professional scam artists in 2500+ years, up until 2017:
- Fallacy of "the Blinds touching Elephant".
- Putting their ignorance into Gotama's mouth to prove their "fallacy" and justify the claim of master-slaves relationships.
- Riding on Gotama's credibility to sell what the professional scam artists do not know nor have.
They know nothing about "Prajna", outside the box of Ignorance in one's "Right Understanding and Right Motivation" at one's level of Samadhi-Prajna, known by most common people for the "Right" and "Wrong" relevant to one's present moment due to the innate Buddha Nature capable of making decision and learning from a mistake.
1.1.1 Fallacy of "the Blinds touching Elephant"
Gotama rejected 'all forms of 'essential self', and emphasized the 'Not Self' right from his second sermon in the formation of Buddhist Sangha that has made it a Binding Word, Clinging Thought, and general 'Grasp-er/Grasped' in those Not Knowing the 'Gateway-to-Oneness'. He did not explicitly mention that 'his Word and Thought of Not-Self' has to be dropped since Self/Selfless Awareness can be Beyond Word and Thought outside all conditioned boxes. Behind any effort is a "Volition / Freewill / Sankhara" of an agent or self. A thought of 'Not-Self' becomes a barrier to keep the practitioner outside the Gateway-to-Oneness (beyond self and not-self at clinging word and thought level), characterized as the 'Oneness / Thing-As-It-Is without Conflict' as pointed out in 'Buddhism implies dualism'[D19.3] using the picture of a long time and well-known claimed master of Buddhist Samatha and Vipassana since the practitioner is still within the box of Clinging Thought. The clinging 'Not-Self' keeps him from transcending the Observed toward Oneness! No one in the entire history of Buddhist Sangha talking about Transcendental States, except Gotama[D29]. Instead of testing and value-add in implementing these states, Buddhist monks and scholars - not even passing the Gateway-to-Oneness knowing nothing about transcending states - produce voluminous treatises and debates about "meditation on emptiness" of the "Blinds touching Elephant".
We logically show that the Clinging Thought of 'Not Self' and 'Emptiness' is the major hurdle in Nagarjuna Madhyamaka[D46], [D45] and all those advocating the "Not-Self and Emptiness" from the Heart Sutra[R2] at "Cheating Words / Teachings", being confused philosophers to render Budh Dharma stagnant by grasping the word "Not-Self" in "Relative Truth" rather than the actual dynamic adjustment between "Self / Hữu Niệm" and "Not-Self / Vô Niệm" as a "Self/Selfless Insight / Awareness" from Trần Thái Tông[R7.3]. They are "Cheating Words / Teachings" since the description is Not the described and they pretend to be Buddhist teachers of what they don't know nor have because they have not passed the "Gateway to Oneness", emptying the duality contents toward Nothingness and Unity. This stagnancy and competition between Buddhist Madhyamaka[D34] of "Not-Self" and Consciousness-Only[D35] - between dynamic Thing As It Is "Self" and "Not-Self" - lead to static deduction from the Perfected Nature (Parinispanna) to the Dependent Nature (Paratantra), turning the Three Natures of Consciousness-Only upside down from the Dynamic Infusion of the Perfected Nature to make a difference between Dependent Nature and the Imaginary Nature (Parikalpita).
Due to our exposition since 2012 to sufficiently open the discoveries enabling people see the fallacies of Buddhist professional scam artists, some hard-core Buddhist scholars - knowing nothing about transcendental states in Perfected Nature - insisting (at the end of 2015 before releasing version 2.1) on the "Ignorant Dependent Nature" of Relative Truth where Dependent Nature leads to Imaginary Nature due to tainted senses, and to Ultimate (Wider) Truth where the Dependent nature leads to the Perfected Nature. This is a new layer of fallacy from persistent "Blinds touching Elephant" since it cannot point out the driving force behind the Dependent Nature and what can purify the tainted senses. It is exactly as the "Cheating Words / Teachings" from the Heart Sutra in the entire history of Buddhist Sangha without delivering the verifiable passing process through "the Gateway to Oneness" qualified by Gotama at the Tranquility[D28] second absorption level to be ready for his qualified Mindfulness[D21] at the Equanimity[D28] third stage of his meditation that Buddhist monks / nuns blah blah blah for so long in 2500+ year of the Sangha history.
The persistent fallacy at duality[D19.3] demonstrates without any doubt that through out 2500+ years of Buddhist Sangha up until 2017, very few - beside Gotama, Bodhidharma, HuiNeng, and probably few more - ever know the reverse process from Form to Consciousness to be outside the tainted senses. This process was recorded in Shurangama Sutra[D31], but only at word level from esoteric impostors, stealing the technologies from others. Through our 40+ years observation of Buddhist Sangha, we have sensed some qualified at Gotama's Mindfulness but most do not trust their Insight and personal experience so they depend on "recorded texts" and "loud mouth professional scam artists" as a guiding light with small twists of their authentic personal experience here and there. The writer lost 20+ years in not having enough trust about his authentic experience in sudden 1970 breakthrough. By pointing out the fallacies of Buddhist Sangha, we hope to save many unnecessary sufferings in the trap of religious criminals[R18.3] and professional scam artists[R18.4] and encourage those dedicated explorers "reverse engineering" their authentic experience for the benefits of many on the same path.
The Ignorance / Fallacy on the Dependent Nature is due to exposing "only half of its story" and "Not-Thing-As-It-Is" when stated that the "conceptual" Dependent Nature leads to the Perfected Nature of Non-Duality without exposing the required conditions and reproducible process discovered from underlying natural laws to move from duality to Oneness or cultivable Prajna. It is the Perfected Nature - Consciousness of the consciousness / outside the box - that infuses "Natural Purification[D26]" to effortlessly transform the Imaginary Nature via tainted senses to the Dependent Nature of Thing-As-It-Is. The signed post identifies two different forces to push a normative intelligent being toward either degeneration causing sufferings to wake that agent up or higher evolution in "Making Life Easier and Happier" according to natural laws: (1) Ignorance due to tainted senses or (2) Cultivable Prajna.
It is the core of Gotama's discoveries - the three poisons to keep the vicious circle of Sufferings moving known as "Ignorance, Attachment, and Aversion" - that 2500+ years of Buddhist Sangha unable to break through due to the inability to enter the Gateway-to-Oneness identified by Gotama as his Tranqility transcendental absorption, grasping (Relative Truth / Ultimate Wider Truth, Self / Not-Self, Dependent Nature / Perfected Nature) of what they don't know nor have in the masters-slaves relationships while making noises in their doctrinal [ Ethical Code > Concentration > Prajna - Giới > Định > Tuệ ], causing 1000+ years of chasm within their own communities and philosophies.
Fortunately, throughout 2500+ years of Buddhist Communities, there have been many dedicated explorers to Value Add with many "Sudden Breakthroughs" to practicalize Gotama's discoveries in "Making Life Easier and Happier" for the "mass / people / citizens". Bodhidharma - the founder of Zen - revealed the practicality of "Detachment-Born / Emptiness" in Gotama's discoveries as natural laws governing one's evolution of Consciousness to Form and possible next level of evolution from Form back to Consciousness (by-passing innumerable outdated marks in one's tainted senses) by describing his solution to humanity [ Inner Conflicts - Outer Conflicts ] in his Jue Guan Lun / TUYỆT QUÁN LUẬN[D32.1]. HuiNeng value-added the possible breakthrough of the Vicious Circle in duality of [ Attachment >< Aversion ] - moving from one extreme to another extreme - driven by Ignorance with his personally testified Samadhi-Prajna and precisely defined their roles in "Samadhi - Inner Peace - is the Quintessence of Prajna [for Right Understanding], while Prajna is the activity of Samadhi [for Right Motivation]". This Prajna dimension is mathematically perpendicular the cross-cut duality planes of all intelligent realms such as humanity, Gods, Allah, Buddhas lumped together as the middle and higher realms that we can esoterically sense. It - Prajna - is the manifestation on the foundation of Compassion tree deep rooted in invisible Sunyata that intelligent beings can bypass their tainted senses to reverse the evolution from Form back to Consciousness.
This "No Conflict" in "Detachment-Born / Emptiness" together with HuiNeng "Samadhi-Prajna" is the deliverable Thing-As-It-Is Actuality in transcending the duality and extremes of [ Attachment >< Aversion ], totally different from Buddhist Middle Path Madhyamaka at conditioned thinking level having no practicality of Actual Living. The degree of "Right" and "Wrong" changes with the situation, with both the depth and the width of Normative Intelligence capable to sense the "Pulse" of the situation / event whose net effect depends on all concerned and active players. The higher/deeper Wisdom/Prajna along the dimension orthogonal to all observable duality plane can be statistically measurable at different signed posts such as the Not-Self contributed by Gotama or Self-Selfless Actualization in modern psychology. That is Why the cultivable Normative Intelligence can be augmented with Positive Artificial Intelligence to enable one the center of all activities and relationships.
Moving to further South, Vạn Hạnh[R7.1] demonstrated "Thing-As-It-Is" Dukkha - no conflict inside / no conflict outside - from Bodhidharma in his well-known ability to get the "Pulse" of complex military and diplomatic national securities to arise at optimum solutions toward What Count[R2] in his visionary advice to the previous Lê dynasty and the main architect of a bloodless / effortless coup d'etat to change the Lê to Lý dynasty, opening a new Era for Vietnam. Trần Thái Tông[R7.3] was the first one to recognize the dynamic razor-sharp [ thought / oneness (hữu niệm / vô niệm) ] in the Right / Wrong Effort pushed forward by Gotama as "Right Understanding and Right Motivation" in the Prajna division of his Noble eightfold Path. Trần Hưng Đạo[R7.4] materialized Trần Thái Tông Right / Wrong Effort with his three principles: (1) Kindness and Compassion once favourably developed in any community, that community can act as a single intelligent unit for a common cause, benefiting all involved parties, (2) Continuous Right Effort in Learning and Doing to manifest one's Worthy Existence of the wise[R10], and (3) All Efforts come from people/citizen, by people/citizen, and for people/citizen. Thanks to these value-adds to the Wise-Dharma, he was able to help Vietnam militarily defeat three times the most violent and fearful Mongol invasions.
Since then, there have been many significant events such as the tidal waves of industrial revolutions bringing humanity closer together in a Global Village and most recently Krishnamurti's discovery a possibility of "outside the tainted senses" - called "Intensity of Attention" that he spent 60+ years of his life time to make known to the world - as postulated by Buddhist Consciousness-Only[D19.3]. With our 45+ years of discovering and investigating natural laws to enable most normal people passing the "Gateway-to-Oneness", we think it is the Right Time for the Fourth Tidal Wave of industrial revolution where Normative Intelligence and machine-learning Artificial Intelligence can join hands to materialize the three principles of Trần Hưng Đạo[R7.4]. The normative and positive technologies help one recognizing the innate precious quality of Normative Intelligence / Prajna to know more about oneself, driving all activities and relationships in productions and consumption with that Normative Intelligence rather than Ignorance, proving the possibility of breaking the Suffering Vicious Circle first addressed by Gotama 2500+ years ago as the Three Poisons to one's quality of the Consciousness: [ Ignorance >< Attachment >< Aversion ]
You have not heard this exposition throughout 2500+ years of Buddhist Sangha, even throughout the life times of Gotama, Bodhidharma, and HuiNeng. Precisely, an [ Ignorance/Darkness ] cannot be broken by another [ Ignorance/Darkness ] on the duality plane of [ Attachment >< Aversion ]. There are hidden attributes in Prajna and Right Inner Peace (Chánh Định) - innate and accessible by most people - capable to be outside the boxes to drive relative existence toward a Right Direction. The target of KhaiPhong is to make these hidden attributes epistemic objectives and cultivable by discovering underlying natural laws to make them known to most people via modern tools. That is why we says Gotama should expose his inner process in facing the outer conflict generated by others as in the recorded Quarrel At Kosambi[D43] that Bodhidharma partially revealed his solution[D32.1].
We want to nail down this signed post (at 2015-12-25) - the results of field research similar to Gotama 's signed posts of nine (9) stages of Verifiable Emptiness - to be personally testified by many when Consciousness Technologies are wide spread. It is similar to the two aspects of Dukkha defined as (1) dukkha-dukkha, viaparinama-dukkha, and sankhara-dukkha: exposed by Gotama together with his solution in Setting the Wheel of Dhamma in Motion[D19.2], (2) "Thing-As-It-Is" dukkha which embraced the three definitions of Dukkha according to Gotama, exposed by Bodhidharma in his Jue Guan Lun / TUYỆT QUÁN LUẬN[D32.1] to demonstrate and value add the practicality and bottom line of cultivable "Detachment-Born or Verifiable Emptiness".
Currently there is a huge gap from Sufferings to Right Effort in Making Life Easier and Happier. In modern Maslow's hierarchy of needs, there are ample researched evidences of the Basic needs of Physiology, Safety, Social, Esteem and the happier Being needs of Knowledge, Aesthetics, Self-Selfless Actualization, Transcendence to demonstrate they are not serial nor hierarchy, but dynamic interactions among all needs. The "Being need" has not been delivered due to criminal and professional scam artists of all isms, moving from one extreme to another extreme incapable to break through the "Three Poisons of Consciousness Quality" driven by "Ignorance", perpetuating in the Inner Conflicts Outer Conflicts of duality. Gotama established Buddhist Sangha with the task to deliver this "Being Need" to break through the "Self / Selfless Actualization entering the Gateway-to-Oneness.
His Buddhist communities failed the task due to the egoistic binding / clinging to the duality of "Word and Thought" of the "Middle Path / Madhyamaka", unable to deliver scientific process for themselves and most normal people "Passing the Gateway-to-Oneness" realizing Gotama's Mindfulness[D21] qualified at his third Transcendental state. Please Note That the Highest level of modern psychological "Being Need", capable to help other achieving Self / Selfless Actualization is the "Transcendence" which demands a personal experience of passing the Gateway-to-Oneness, having "Mindfulness" as qualified by Gotama. But this is only the beginning of Gotama Noble eightfold (dynamic not serial) Path to move deeper through Transcendental Consciousness toward Cosmic Consciousness and Unity for the direct experience of his Not-Self.
It will be straighten out in a technical patented process so no criminals and professional scam artists dare to get close. The process will be governed by a professional body of those passing their theses in "Taming the Ox", delivering and deepening practical "Being need" of Normative Intelligence - being augmented with positive intelligence from Artificial Intelligence - to know more about oneself, being an agent of changes to change oneself and the environment in all activities and relationships of productions and consumption. There are different depths of that infusion from the Perfected Nature similar to different depths in the Insight of Emptiness in moving from "Relative Truth" to "Ultimate (Wider) Truth" in Madhyamaka. The 'Dynamic Feedback' must also be there to adjust one's 'Reality' to 'Actuality' in dynamic environment of Learning and Doing in one's Continuity of the Consciousness.
The dynamic adjustment has not been there up to 2017 in the entire history of Buddhist communities of monks and nuns. They spent their time and effort in logical debates rather than in "Actual Living" of Thing As It Is starting from one's current state and stock of Prajna manifested through "Right Understanding" and "Right Motivation" in the Prajna division of Gotama's Noble eightfold Path. The dynamic feedback is a part of planned KhaiPhong AI tool in the process of [ Plan >< Execution >< Feedback ] to raise possible alerts of one's perceived Sweet Spot in important daily activities.
This dynamic feedback and adjustment depends on the "state" and "stock" of Prajna which comes from the depth and stability of accessing the Right Inner Peace (Samma Samadhi) or "Verifiable Emptiness"[D25] to naturally sense the driving forces behind one's "Volition / Freewill / Sankhara" and the "state of one's Being" to properly manage one's Realities. It does not come from logical understanding - according to Buddhist Sangha - having no driving force from Intensity of Attention. The logical understanding is a two edged knife:
- The wrong logical understanding - called "Ignorant Dependent Nature" - to enslave one within the ivory tower of "Self - Owner of the Thought" that most monks and nuns in the entire history of Buddhist Sangha sink themselves in the vicious circle of
[ Ignorance >< Attachment >< Aversion ]
- The right logical understanding according to the Nature of Thing-As-It-Is / the "Wise Dependent Nature" leading to "Right Effort" and Agent of Changes to change oneself and the environment one a part
[ Compassion >< Oneness >< Prajna ]
Within the conditions of Human realm, the depth of the infusion is scientifically measurable in the 'State' of Prajna known as the Right Mindfulness[D12] and the 'Stock' of Prajna known as the accumulated and settled down of the Right Inner Peace[D13] (Samma-Samadhi), plus something more from Sunyata / Oneness manifested through Prajna and ComPassion. That is why we say Prajna is the flower of ComPassion tree deep rooted in Sunyata / Oneness. They are the two visible attributes - Compassion and Prajna - of invisible Sunyata / Oneness, injecting the wider perspective of 'Being' into 'Doing' in all activities and relationships (Living). The founder of Consciousness-Only[D35] - Asanga - quietly worked on this issue of 'Clinging Thought'. The fruitful result was demonstrated by Krishnamurti of his 60+ years to explore the 'Thinker' and the 'Thought' and tell the world that it is 'the Intensity of Attention' at the relevant point to take one out of the duality of 'Abstractions', closer to Thing As It Is'. He wonder why he has this natural state while most do not have. Krishnamurti did not say in that precise form. It is the discovery of the writer in 1970's with his actual experience in investigating Consciousness-Only, riding on Krishnamurti's personal effort.
This will be changed in KhaiPhong using the participant's Inner Quest (from real Pain - Dukkha, the Right Thing to do, a nagging feeling, a dominant Issue such as Fear, Phobia, Uncontrollable urge, etc) as the natural starting point for Intensity of Attention, plus Sound and Consciousness technologies to enable the mass (most people) directly access at different depths of Transcendental Consciousness, Cosmic Consciousness, and Unity. Mathematically, the natural "Intensity of Attention" on the duality plane of the event rides on discovered natural laws to either move deeper into various Signed Posts as proven by Gotama and deliverable via PrajnaTIP in Sound or higher via Aspiration as proven by Jesus using Faith, great artists using music, dancing, painting, calligraphy, and most efficient of all via PrajnaTIP in Kindness building on accumulated state and stock of Right Inner Peace (Samma Samadhi) via ComPassion / Common Vibration of Energy on the [ Oneness / Prajna / Conscience / Wisdom ] plane of the event TRUTH.
The layered foundations of moving in both deeper and higher vertical directions on the [ Oneness / Prajna / Conscience / Wisdom ] plane of the event TRUTH
are the results of our 45+ years of scientific researches based on recorded actual experiences of great explorers such as Gotama, Jesus, Bodhidharma, HuiNeng, etc, - personally tested and verified by current living students in our group - together with precious "Esoteric Sharing[R20.1]" of painful experiences which cost them dearly in their "Continuity of the Consciousness".
Just like an iceberg, the invisible foundations (Compassion >< Detachment-Born) must be bigger and solid to support the manifestation of the visible (Right Inner Peace). In the case of Gotama, he lost six years of "purifying body and mind" via physical disciplines and concentrated determinations from the tainted conditioned darkness. All were in vain until he remembered the natural HonNhien (Natural, Unaffected, Spontaneous, Purity) experience from a child sitting in the shade of a tree having tremendous compassion for all beings.
Thanks to that "Sudden Awaken" of "Right Understanding and Right Motivation", he discovered the Fourfold Truth starting with identified issue of Dukkha and its solution in the Noble eightfold Path where the "entry level" of its "Right Inner Peace" is Detachment-Born[D28]. In the case of Jesus, thanks to the foundation of Compassion and HonNhien from his innate "Good Samaritan", aspiration via faith raised him up from conflicting duality plane of events for some extra-ordinary tasks (miracles) due to higher view from the TRUTH plane of [ Oneness / Prajna / Conscience / Wisdom ]. But not having sufficient confidence in his scientific discovery where faith is only one form of aspiration among many to be dropped, he was carrying its burden, esoterically exploited by both Christian and Muslim churches fully exposed with the collapse of Illuminati New World Order. In the case of our "esoteric friends", the shiner of achievable extraordinary tasks veiled their "Right Understanding and Right Motivation" of their actions and relationships, disconnecting them from the source of Oneness where [ Compassion >< Detachment-Born ] operate. The mother nature will wake them up to be reconnected to the Source.
We see very similar process from "mental / spiritual" discoveries with discoveries in organic chemistry since all must be based on Thing-As-It-Is of underlying natural laws according to the Dependent Nature of Existence, found to be the foundation of Gotama and all other discoveries in physical sciences. The difference is that the "mental / spiritual discoveries" have been wrapped up with imaginary painted utopia and personification by criminals[R18.3] and professional scam artists[R18.4] - not knowing yet claimed to know not seeing yet claimed to see[D19.3] - while scientific discoveries come from people who love the TRUTH where ego is only a part of intelligence to be discovered in "Making Life Easier and Happier". The latter part leads to innumerable discoveries in all fields while the former led to divisional conflicts, driving billions lives into unnecessary sufferings. With our discovered verifiable processes we can ride on experiences learned from "Drug Discovery and Evaluation" to speed up the Science and Economics of KhaiPhong and Prajna Dialectic at the normative side of its integration to enable people the centres of all activities and relationships, from people by people and for people.
The delusion of logic without scientific investigation within the conflicting duality is manifested through out all organized religions such as the concepts of God, Love, Soul / Self, Freewill. Budh dharma - through scientific discoveries of Gotama - has tried to avoid this delusion via Gotama's Charter of Free Inquiry[D22]. Yet, once organized into Buddhist Sangha, the bigger "Delusion" and "authority" is manifested at all levels as indicated in the Krishnamurti's joke below as a starting point to break-through the vicious cicle in duality: Buddhist Mindfulness of Breathing[D23], Samatha and Vipassana[D24], static concept of Nirvana to be glorified into PariNirvana, the Self and Not-Self chasm between Madhyamaka and Consciousness-Only, and the biggest delusion of all "Destruction of Ignorance at conditioned conceptual level" in [ Ethical Code > Concentration > Prajna - Giới > Định > Tuệ ] to be detailed next. Conditions from "ethical code and concentration" cannot lead to an outside-the-box Prajna!
Precisely, an [ Ignorance / Darkness / Partial manageable solution ] cannot break the Not-Thing-As-It-Is root of another [ Ignorance / Darkness ] on the duality plane of [ Attachment >< Aversion ]. It is ironic that Chinese communists broke the 1000+ years of Confucius feudal systems to establish a new fallacy of communist utopia. Through Hegelian dialectic between Communism and Capitalism, China has adopted market economy to save the power of communist party. It has spent around 2 billion US dollars a year at the peak of spreading Confucius Institute as a form of Chinese Soft Power, but failed as evidenced from 2017 to be replaced by another vision of "Belt and Road Initiative".
There are hidden attributes in Prajna and Right Inner Peace (Chánh Định) - innate and accessible by most people - capable to be outside the boxes to drive relative existence toward a Right Direction. It is a breakthrough from Effortless Action - Wei-Wu-Wei / khaiPhong - coming from a higher View of cultivable Prajna, perpendicular to the plane of conflicting duality to see Thing-As-It-Is complex Issue and one's strategic position to change oneself and the environment one a part. Zen is well-known in its intention to "break the habit of Thinking" at conditioned level; yet without entering the "Gateway-to-Oneness / Thing-As-It-Is without Conflict" at different depths, Seung Sahn faked his understanding with the "Don't Know Zen".
Professional scam artists used what recorded at word level of Gotama's experience to prove their hallucinated realities in making a comfortable living. In this tautology, no one in 2500+ years of Buddhist Sangha dare to directly face the "Right Understanding and Right Motivation" in the Prajna division of the Noble eightfold Path. Due to not having sufficient "Mindfulness" - qualified by Gotama at the third absorption stage[D28] - Buddhist Sangha turns the Noble eightfold Path upside down to fit their within-the-box duality[D19.3] of [ Virtue > Concentration > Prajna ] to intentionally destroy Gotama's precious gift to humanity.
HuiNeng tried to reverse this degenerated trend using his personal experience in Samadhi-Prajna[R5]: 'Samadhi - Inner Peace - is the Quintessence of Prajna [for Right Understanding], while Prajna is the activity of Samadhi [for Right Motivation]'. It has been 1000+ years. The Bullying from professional scam artists in Buddhist Sangha is so dominant. This vicious circle has not been broken up until 2017. KhaiPhong wants to take this challenge to theoretically debunk the 2500+ years of Buddhist Sangha and deliver verifiable solutions for most people to personally verify Gotama's Prajna division of the Noble eightfold Path or HuiNeng's Samadhi-Prajna at different depths of one's quality of the consciousness in the new Era of Golden Age thanks to the shift in Universe Energy, starting from the end of 2012.
This new Era will soon be materialized in the fourth wave of industrial revolution where
- It is not only the role of each government to turn GDP (Gross Domestic Pruduct) and GNP (Gross National Product by income) through International Trades of [ 1 + 1 > 2 ] of the country "Comparative Advantages" into Gross National Happiness (GNH) in supplying the dynamic "Basic Needs and Being Needs" to its people, enabling all capable citizens equal opportunities being agents of changes to change oneself and the country, but also
- It is the innate needs - beyond the basic needs materialized for many by past industrial revolutions - deep inside each member of humanity, exciting in the opportunities of Doing Goods. For the needy, there is a better chance to restart where [ Food - Health - Education ] are essential. For the fortunates having ability in Sharing Happiness and Mitigating Sufferings, the "Being Needs" can only be materialized with hand-on personal experience in the Direct Path to Oneness of "Wise Dependent Nature" as exposed above. In that direct path, one will know more about oneself and can sense "the driving force at the source of one's thought" to properly manage one's realities that - up to 2017 - cannot be delivered by Buddhist Madhyamaka Middle Path at the duality of logical thought which is the "Ignorant Dependent Nature".
- We scientifically and theoretically prove that besides the background accumulated economic and inner (military) strength of the country, the cultivable [ Prajna / Wisdom / Conscience / Oneness ] in the popular mass of people - capable to benefit both the Haves and Have-Not - is the dynamic deciding factor via Value of the values in Making Life Easier and Happier, naturally turning GNP and GDP into GNH. This theoretical proof is waiting for implementation, meeting the challenge of Soyen Shaku[R6] coming from 1893 World Parliament of Religions in Chicago: "God [Dharmakaya / Allah / Pháp-Thân] not in the world is the false God [Dharmakaya / Allah / Pháp-Thân] and the World not in God [Dharmakaya / Allah / Pháp-Thân] is unreality".
Most important of all is the material Wealth one cannot carry on after Death. It is the Quality of one's Consciousness that can be changed at the present moment with whatever available resources at hand to fulfil both Basic and Being Needs in one's Continuity of the Consciousness. Both approaches to Oneness / Sunyata (1) either via Gotama's breaking the cycle of "[Ignorance <> Conflicts ]" in duality via the dynamic parts of his Noble eightfold Path, or (2) Direct Path in "[Compassion <> Oneness <> Prajna ]" demand hand-on learning and doing, being an agent of changes to change oneself and the environment, in part discover and in part create the Real You at the source of one's thought not to be unconsciously Pushed and Pulled by innumerable outdated Marks of the ignorant past.
1.1.2 Putting their ignorance into Gotama's mouth to prove their "fallacy" and justify the claim of master-slaves relationships
To concretely demonstrate a piece of Truth that "a darkness cannot destroy another darkness and there is a Light from Consciousness of the consciousness in Oneness / Thing-As-It-Is without Conflict", let's explore the Buddhist concept in "Destruction of Ignorance". Buddhists use PaticcaSamuppada (12 links of causes and effects in Table 2) to explain the 'Cause and Cessation of Dukkha'. There are evidences that the process was formulated by members of the Sangha to fill in the gaps left by Gotama based on the 'Binding Word', 'Clinging Thought', and general 'Grasp-er/Grasped' without realizing that 'Word' and 'Thought' even coming from Gotama, God, or Allah can be changed to express the same "Actuality" as pointed out by Vasubandhu in his synthesis about Self Awareness (Tự Tri)[D7]. Many wrongly quote Gotama explanation out of its context and explain statically and totally within the box having no fragrance from something unconditioned that the cycle will be broken and one is liberated (freedom) from birth and death when one can destroy Ignorance, which does not create Volition, Consciousness, etc, to Age and Death.
Without Volition, one is just like a stone; yet the stone is more concrete than imaginary thoughts. Any conditioned existence is subjected to Change. Where is the Freedom from Sufferings (real deliverable) as asserted in the third Truth (possible Cessation of Dukkha), yet distorted the Gotama's Nirvana into a Utopia at thought level of Parinirvana that monks advocating this Dharma have already committed a serious offense against the fundamental Gotama's ethical code of "Not Lying - Musà vàdà veramanì - Tránh xa sự nói dối" selling what he/she does not know nor have? The Science of KhaiPhong presents a solid theoretical model based on Buddhist Heart Sutra[R2] to realize Gotama Fourfold Truth - that up to 2017 the aggregate understanding of Buddhist Sangha[R12] is only at speculative logical level - and possible empirical verification for many due to discovered technologies based on natural laws for heavy lifting.
Here are the recorded words claimed by Buddhist Sangha from Gotama in Udàna:
That is with ignorance as condition, volitional activities come to be; with volitional activities as condition, consciousness comes to be; with consciousness as condition, name-and-form comes to be... This is the origin of this whole mass of suffering; [(II) (Ud 1.2)]: This not being, that is not; from the cessation of this, that ceases.
That is from the cessation of ignorance, volitional activities cease; from the cessation of volitional activities, consciousness ceases; from the cessation of consciousness, name-and-form ceases...from the cessation of craving, grasping ceases; from the cessation of grasping, being ceases; from the cessation of being, birth ceases; from the cessation of birth, aging-and-death, sorrow, lamentation, pain, grief, and despair cease. This is the ceasing of this whole mass of suffering; [(III) (Ud 2)]: ...
Putting aside the correct process of 12, 7, 6, 5, 4 or 3 in Table 2 which depends on the objective of the process, the context of logical arguments was Gotama reflection on what he observed in the Inner Peace (Samadhi). In this observation, there are different depths of 'Thing As It Is'. The logical arguments were formulated after the instantaneous moment of Right Samadhi, and very likely the words put out by Buddhist Sangha since Gotama in these contexts spoke his reflection in verse, not in logical writing and understood by his monks. The description is Not the described, similar to 'the description of Love' is not Love which is an Actuality. The logical argument, after the fact of Actual Experience,
'from the cessation of ignorance, volitional activities (Sankhara) cease; from the cessation of volitional activities, consciousness ceases - do vô minh diệt nên hành diệt; do hành diệt, nên thức diêt' Is Incorrect, out of the context of existence or manifestation. Consciousness is a form of energy which cannot be destroyed!
Sankhara is always there due to the conditioned existence and is a part of Dukkha (viparinama-dukkha and sankhara-dukkha). Even a stone or mountain is subjected to Sankhara due to Conditioned Existence or Dependent Nature either from external, internal and/or both. At the end of 2013, a film about the Buddha "Path of Enlightenment - CON ĐƯỜNG GIÁC NGỘ" made by the Vietnamese Buddhist Sangha continue to enforce and insist that Gotama's Path to Enlightenment is through the destruction of Dukkha at conditioned duality level via [ Ethical Code > Concentration > Prajna - Giới > Định > Tuệ ] to move from Dukkha to Nirvana. This shows the nature of all involved parties, not knowing what they are talking about, do not know what they said, and violating Gotama's ethical code in advocating what they do not know nor have according to their own agenda of special interest groups.
They are totally ignorant of the Self/Selfless Awareness and know nothing[D42] about (1) a complete Silence of outdated Marks for "the seen will be merely what is seen; in the heard will be merely what is heard; ... Just this is the end of suffering" and (2) "that base where no base consisting of neither-perception-nor-non-perception; ... Here, bhikkhus, I say there is no coming, no going, no staying, no deceasing. Not fixed, not movable, it has no support. Just this is the end of suffering. These two statements demonstrate that most monks / nuns in the entire history of Buddhist Sangha up to 2017 do not know (1) the difference between "Suffering Dukkha / Dukkha-Dukkha" driven by Ignorance and (2) "Thing-As-It-is Dukkha" driven by Prajna, and momentary Nirvana at the mountain top of "Verifiable Emptiness"[D25], [D32.1]
The correct opponent (counter-thrust) of momentary Ignorance (Avijja) is Prajna that leads to Detachment-Born instead of Craving (Tanha) and HonNhien instead of Clinging (Upadana) that drive the present State of Consciousness toward the direction of Purity-Tranquility rather than Sufferings as pointed out in the causes and effects according to KhaiPhong Technology (Table 2). It is HuiNeng's Samadhi-Prajna where 'Samadhi - Inner Peace - is the Quintessence of Prajna [for Right Understanding], while Prajna is the activity of Samadhi [for Right Motivation]' in the Prajna division of the Noble eightfold Path. The scientific process has been clearly laid out in the Heart Sutra[R2] and will be implemented in the Science and Economics of KhaiPhong. It demands the minimum quality of Equanimity pegged by Gotama as the base of his Mindfulness[D28], or better at "Purity" utter Silence of all internal conflicts for listening in "No Mind Enclosure" the dominant driving forces of the Issue with possible solutions. "Tainted Mind" is Ignorance (Avijja), a result of evolution from Consciousness to Form. "No Mind Enclosure" is Prajna, cultivable in reverse evolution from Form to Consciousness. Ignorance or Prajna drives the Volition / Sakhara / Freewill toward Wrong Effort of Sufferings or Right Effort toward What Count[R23]. Both Ignorance and Prajna can be measurable as an outcome of an effort. Hence Buddhist monks and nuns must deliver this measurable result, not the blah blah blah in their theoretical framework not relevant to the present and future living in international cheating clubs.
Those advocating the destruction of Dukkha at conditioned duality via [ Ethical Code > Concentration > Prajna - Giới > Định > Tuệ ] to move from Dukkha to Nirvana do not have "Mindfulness / Chánh Niệm" qualified by Gotama[D28]. That is why they deduct from logical understanding that they can destroy the 'darkness' with their within-the-box conditioned darkness. This is similar to the criticism of Madhyamaka theorists who do not know Verifiable Emptiness about Consciousness-Only that 'a sword - no matter how sharp it is - cannot cut itself'. The darkness is effortlessly replaced by a light of Prajna which is 'Thing As It Is' or 'Actuality'. From their within-the-box darkness of conditioned thinking, Buddhist Sangha in its entire history up until 2017 has turned Gotama Discovered Process in Noble eightfold Path upside-down to destroy the Ignorance with indoctrinated Virtue > Concentration > Prajna and make Prajna an outcome of the conditioned having No Freshness of seeing 'Thing As It Is'.
One must start Right at the Present Moment from whatever level of Prajna one has in the Right Understanding and Right Motivation to be a Good (kindness) Person (Tu Nhân) then Buddhist Cultivation (Học Phật) to dynamically change one's State (Right Mindfulness) and Stock (Right Inner Peace) of the Consciousness toward the Purity-Tranquility of Existence. [ Prajna - Virtue - Stability ] is the Gotama's Order of the Noble eightfold Path, Not the Buddhist Sangha [ Ethical Code > Concentration > Prajna ].
The source of Prajna is Right Inner Peace (Samma-Samadhi - Chánh Định) that will be delivered via PrajnaTIP in Sound (and Light), PrajnaTIP in Kindness , Cultivable Prajna in Activity and Sadhana for a direct taste of the 'Oneness / Thing-As-It-Is without Conflict' at different depths by most people to actually know that one is more than 'a conditioned bag of existence' in One a part of the Whole - the Whole in One. One then 'Transcend Inner Peace'[D25] to directly experience the Essence of The Right Living / Effort, beyond all 'isms'.
The counter thrust of Ignorance (Avijja) is Prajna, not the imaginary destruction of Ignorance at thought level which is the darkness. Prajna is the starting division of the Noble Path for Right Understanding and Right Motivation. It (Prajna) is the manifestation of something much deeper, lumped together in the word 'Sunyata' that Gotama is fully aware the tendency of the 'self' to idealize something beyond its boundary since 'self' is the owner of the 'Thought'. In this careful scientific classification, he drilled down 'the process of Prajna' via two major characteristics: Right Mindfulness and Right Inner Peace in the stability division of the Noble Path for establishing a solid Inside Order (Peace) which affects the Outside Order (Harmonious), Not the other way around of centralized Social Order and/or monotheism centralized Faith.
This means Purification of the Mind[D30] and all the senses must naturally come from outside-the-box Prajna, empirically verifiable at different depths of Verifiable Emptiness[D25] personally demonstrated by Gotama and will be available to most participants via the Friendly and Compassionate [Heart - Mind - Sweat/Capital] Culture of Sharing Happiness - Mitigating Sufferings. Any description of the Purification without having the fragrance of outside-the-box unconditioned is the imagination of theorists who do not know nor have the required Transcendental Inner Peace. That Oneness / Thing-As-It-Is without Conflict Samadhi is qualified by HuiNeng as a required attribute of a Buddhist Counselor - not Buddhist teacher, master, enlighten by boosting monks - known by Asanga as the 'Perfected Nature', exposed by Nagarjuna as the 'Ultimate (Wider) Truth', asserted by Jesus as 'the kingdom of god within you', described at the mountain top by Gotama as Nirvana, and called Nameless by Lao-Tzu. That fragrance is the necessary and sufficient condition for an Inner Order that leads to Outer Order.
The natural beyond-thought process is painted at the conditioned thought from claimed Buddhist monks / nuns / masters / scholars to describe what most do not know nor have. Destruction of 'Ignorance' at word level without pointing out the underlying process was a possible subtle sabotage from the third esoteric dark force. Logically, Gotama's Wise Attention[D27], Emptiness[D28], [D29], and Nirvana are beyond thought so his description of 'destruction of Ignorance' could not be at conditioned thought/word without any qualification to reveal something reachable in human potentiality which he personally testified. It is Not at the conditioned thought as taught in the entire history of Buddhist Sangha up to 2017.
Some dedicated buddhists use logical thinking starting from the core of PaticcaSamuppada 'when this is, that is - iti imasmiṃ sati idaṃ hoti - khi cái này có, cái kia có' together with the inconsistency of different (not just 12) recorded links to show the likelihood that the 12 links of causes and effects were enforced by the Buddhist Sangha, Not from the Buddha, to describe a logical process as they understood, missing something Unconditioned outside the boxes of conditioned existence and the logical connection between the Fourfold Truth with the links of causes and effects to clearly spell out the possibility of Freedom from Sufferings in Actual Living. [ Ignorance >< Not understanding Fourfold Truth ] tautology and [ Virtue > Concentration > Prajna ] are totally within conditioned boxes to make Buddhist Dharma stagnant in the past 2500+ years. Where is the understanding and verification of the Fourfold Truth coming from?
The core of PaticcaSamuppada also shows limitation of its static snapshot nature of Black and White 'when this is that is', not a dynamic process of injecting attributes and factors in the Dependent Nature (Paratantra) of 'Thing As It Is' having the infusion of the Perfected Nature (Parinishpanna). Due to this Dependent Nature, everyone can contribute something in one's 'real-life secret sauce' from different angles of conscious living, found to be more appropriate and appealing to one's pattern, especially through Reflections (Bhavana) that brings something outside the box to the equation, which may be beneficial to many others in actual modern living. The Buddhist Sangha - once pulling out of its current mess tainted by professional scam artists - is only one of innumerable ways of professional lifestyles, appropriate to different time and space.
The reflection (Bhavana) at Beyond Thought (outside the box) to see Thing-As-It-Is due to utter silence of tainted senses with its insight of one's strategic position is called by HuiNeng Samadhi-Prajna in one's Sudden Awaken. Thanks to that Sudden Awaken recognizing the "Right Understanding and Right Motivation" of one's proper cultivation, Gotama discovered the real solution for his identified Issue Dukkha in exploring the meaning (raison d'être) of human existence. There are innumerable events in one's daily activities and relationships so there are innumerable "Right Understanding and Right Motivation" to enable the diversities moving toward What Count[R23]. We call these statistically significant "Right Understanding and Right Motivation" of major events - deliverable with current Distributed Graph Technology - the community implementations of Gotama's discovered solution (eightfold path) of existence in one's Continuity of the Consciousness.
Table 2 tabulates the 12 links of causes and effects as presented by Buddhist Sangha, and possible causes and effects driven by Prajna contrasted with Ignorance where Right Mindfulness (Chánh Niệm) of (1) being Aware of something Beyond Thought (Vô Tướng), and (2) Detachment-Born (Vô Trụ) which implies No-Mark (Vô Vết) can add more values. The process can be contributed from different angles by many students in the AwakeningBudh. We need more researched evidences. Recorded Buddhist Text is only one possible theory; there are different theories and processes derived from factual observations to be proven or rejected based on empirical verification.
The Present Living plus Age and Death driven by Prajna in daily activities of seeing 'Thing As It Is' have different qualities due to Detachment-Born (instead of Craving) and HonNhien (instead of Clinging) of Right Mindfulness Beyond Thought. Right Mindfulness[D12] (Chánh Niệm) together with Prajna (Bát Nhã), revealing from one's innate Buddha Nature, is the true Buddhist teaching and Guide to all qualified Buddhists coming directly from the Buddha in answering Ajita's Questions[D21].
We have abundantly proved that most Buddhist claimed meditation masters / monks / nuns - up to 2017 - do not have "Mindfulness" qualified by Gotama at the Equanimity level, passing the gateway to "Oneness / Thing-As-It-Is without Conflict", and Prajna to properly receive the advice of Gotama to Ajita[D21]. To be qualified at this level capable to understand and accept the advice for further deepening and widening the solutions in all aspects of living to solve the "Real Pains" for oneself and the World, HuiNeng - 1000+ years later using his actual experience - value-added a glimpse to possible solution with his well-known Dhyana-Samadhi (Thiền-Định) and Samadhi-Prajna (Định-Tuệ). That is meditation is not there if there is no actual transcendental process of dissolving contents, and to know "Prajna" one must be able to know to state (Samadhi / Định) where the invisible consciousness (Self Nature) emits visible Prajna / Tuệ. This possible glimpse is far beyond all Buddhist scholars and monks.
Now, 1000+ years later - using our actual experience and 100+ years of combined modern researches - we turn zen Koan into actual challenge to discover natural laws and explorable trails to verify the Truth set out in Gotama's Noble eightfold Path in-union-with the Heart Sutra[R2]: 'in Sunyata there is not ... dukkha-sammudaya-nirodha-marga', just Thing As It Is in actual Living using the system of Fourfold Truth to personally verify it. Riding on modern scientific proven techniques in Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Information Communication Technology (ICT), together with Big-Data Pattern and Issue detections, we materialize Nagarjuna Valuation Function to enable Samadhi and Prajna quantitatively measurable via "Detachment-Born" and "Right Effort" of person and/or aggregate [ Plan >< Execution >< Feedback ]. We enhance and turn HuiNeng unscientific certification process of having actual experience in Samadhi-Prajna into a possible sustainable academia-business joint venture of [ Heart - Mind - Sweat / Capital ] to govern Clusters of Open Innovations (COINs) from the people, by the people, and for the people.
1.1.3 Riding on Gotama's credibility to sell what the professional scam artists do not know nor have
[ Ethical Code > Concentration > Prajna ] - a body of "By-Laws" to help those unable to have "Inner Order" coming from Right Understanding and Right Motivation to maintain "Outer Order". It is later glorified as a hidden process of professional cheaters - those messing up their lives in cheating others for an unworthy living - to destroy Gotama's discoveries which are all about "Oneness". As a Buddhist - the one exploring the innate Buddha Nature - one is better to honestly start at one's level of Prajna (Right Understanding and Right Motivation) to dynamically activate one's "Alertness" and "Awareness" than to wear a Mask of the one who knows via Ethical Codes (not Gotama's Virtue) > Concentration (not Gotama's Samadhi) > Prajna (far from and not Gotama's Right Understanding and Right Motivation).
Observe all religious people in all organized religions - including supreme leaders (Pháp Chủ) - who are addicted to calming beads plus [ Ethical Code > Concentration > Prajna - Giới > Định > Tuệ ] to see the manifestations of their inner conflicts via unceasing movements. If they try to glorify their "messy mind" please help them to know a little about themselves and their "Crutch" by asking why they need and use the calming-bead pacifiers which is the Reality of most priests, monks, and nuns from any organized utopia. One can use whatever crutch most appropriate such as Faith in Xyz (Jesus Christ, Allah, Amitabha, the Pope, the Dalai Lama, a pop star, an actor, an actress, etc), [ Ethical Code > Concentration > Prajna ], Praying, A Utopia, Getting high in Tantric Penetration, or Using a stimulant - ranging from tea, alcohol to destructive substance - to temporarily overcome the present "Pain". By consciously knowing it is a "Crutch" that if possible one is better to be Free from it for a wider and clearer perspective of an explorer, having Right Effort in cultivable "Detachment-Born - Vô Trụ" of the proven process [ Compassion >< Detachment-Born >< No-Mind-Enclosure ] toward the present Worthy Existence.
The three divisions of the Noble eightfold Path[D36] precisely starts from [ Prajna >< Virtue >< Stability ] where Prajna has something outside conditioned boxes of existence to be stable and see 'Thing As It Is' for a Right Effort in relative Worthy Existence. Embedded in one's long evolution are efforts to make things better for oneself and others, and degeneration due to Ignorance of the Natural Laws in the Essence of the Right Living. Everyone is unique with one's Instinct, Brain intelligence, vibration from the heart, and something beyond lumped together under the name Prajna driving a Right Understanding and Right Motivation for a Right Effort in daily activities. Mathematically, that 'Right' or 'Actuality' in Figure 4 has different depths and one can approach the 'momentary' Right by deeper Awareness in the difference between the momentary 'Dependent Nature' and the tainted 'Imaginary Nature' to dynamically adjust and manage one's Reality due to the manifestation of Prajna. Only through the Right Understanding and Right Motivation with a feedback from a "Reflection" of the "Effort / Action" one can dynamically adjust in Learning and Doing of the Wise[R10].
Instead of starting Right from this Prajna to be "At Home" with one's True Heart as illustrated in the seventh stage of Ox Herding Pictures - Figure 7 - true and authentic - Buddhist path of development according to Buddhist Sangha is based on [ Ethical Code > Concentration > Prajna ] where their ethical codes may help toward Gotama Virtue but not the living Virtue and totally inside the conditioned box which turns Prajna[D24] into an outcome of conditioned things that according to Lankavatara[D32], using the Buddha name, whatever conditioned must change (viparinama-dukkha and sankhara-dukkha). In advocating [ Ethical Code > Concentration > Prajna - Giới > Định > Tuệ ] they already violate the code of "Not Lying - Musà vàdà veramanì - Tránh xa sự nói dối" in saying it is Gotama's Noble eightfold Path to be its gatekeepers. The Noble eightfold Path is Beyond-Thought - capable to transcend the Observed to utter Silence for transcending the Observer - to actually know Gotama Not-Self while all of their practices in 2500+ years of Buddhist Sangha are within the conditioned thought of conflicting duality[D19.3].
Even worse, the Sangha's 'Ethical Codes' with their invented rituals, sutra recitations, and cultivating processes[R14] have nothing related to Gotama's Virtue. Their Virtues in "invented rituals", "sutra recitation" and "prayers" to even mask the codes of conduct (Vinaya) in helping their life style are too far away from the core of Gotama's Virtue which is a Good Person of 'Right Speech, Right Action and Right Livelihood' where 'Kindness' (mettā - tâm từ) and 'Compassion' (karuṇā - tâm bi - Good Samaritan) are parts of the 'Right'. Riding on Gotama's credibility, they invented rituals, repeating at word level rather than living in the spirit of the Sutras, marketing of what they do not know, nor have in their own jungle of descriptions - such as meditation (thinking) on Emptiness - and claim their body of conducting codes is Gotama's Virtue to be his Torch Carriers in disguise of Gate Keepers. Their next step of 'Concentration' Is Not the 'Stability' division of 'Right Effort, Right Mindfulness and Right Samadhi (Inner Peace)', but a retarded process to narrow the scope of one's vision via Inner Conflicts - Outer Conflicts to have an appearance of a calm person. Most do not know Gotama's Verifiable Emptiness in Right Mindfulness and Right Samadhi since most monks/nuns put their Wrong Effort in wearing the mask - as Buddhist Teacher[R5.3], [R14], [R13.1] / Enlighten Monk - of what they do not know nor have.
For example, part of their fundamental argument for the [ Ethical Code > Concentration > Prajna - Giới > Định > Tuệ ] - according to Nhân duyên học (Study in Dependent Origination) released at the end of 2013 - is that Ignorance (Avijja) is caused by Desire, Wrong Understanding, Wrong Motivation. The study argues that when there is "no presence of Darkness (ignorance) the light appears - Vô minh không hiện hữu thì Minh hiện hữu (page 87)". "No!" You cannot destroy one ignorance with your other Ignorance in conflicting duality of your Tainted Mind having innumerable Outdated Marks. The Ignorance of darkness is only the absence of the light "Prajna / Conscience / Wisdom".
When there is a light, the darkness is effortlessly disappeared. This is the upside-down of the whole Buddhism in 2500+ years of its history. Gotama, Shurangama Sutra, Krishnamurti used the negative side to point out What is Not to highlight "What Is in totality" for one's interest and intensity of attention since all they have is "thought" used in logical thinking to point to something "Beyond-Thought", and "part of What Is" is the Oneness, Unborn, Unchanged. Similarly, Buddhist dialectic of three [ thesis - antithesis - synthesis ] in the changes and conditioned existence with something from the "Event Horizon" - outside the box - to expose the depth of "Thing As It Is" which is Beyond Thought since thought is only a snapshot at a particular angle while the "Oneness, Unchanged, Unborn" is the totality. The three stages dialectic [ affirmative - negative - new level of affirmative ] such as in the Heart Sutra is well known in Prajna literature (Vajracchedikā Prajñāpāramitā sutra / Kim Cương năng đoạn bát nhã ba la mật): form is Sunyata Sunyata is form; form is not different from Sunyata Sunyata is not different from form; form equals Sunyata Sunyata equals form[R7.5].
It is the investigation of the Oneness to discover operating natural laws that make Life Easier and Happier. Something from the "Event Horizon" is concrete practical outcome due to the movement of Internal Consciousness Forces having very specific and emerging attributes that modern AI technologies are trying to detect from "Big Data", a result from Cloud computing, Mobile devices and Internet of things. Knowing these emerging attributes - such as natural comparative advantages for regional and industrial strategic developments - one can enhance the possibility and bigger success due to the Right Effort coming from the Right Understanding and Right Motivation (of the Noble eightfold Path).
According to the study - Nhân duyên học - "to cease Ignorance we have to protect the tainted senses - muốn đoạn trừ chi mạt vô minh, ta phải nhiếp phục ái thủ hữu qua sự phòng hộ sáu căn, khi sáu căn tiếp xúc với các đối tượng tương ứng (page 150)". Your darkness of Concentration to control your "infinite inner conflicts outer conflicts" cannot see your reality "As It Is", cannot catch the sources of your thoughts, do not know the state of your being, and is pulled and pushed by the issue.
You are stuck in your egoistic "self" since your "actual quality of the Consciousness" - no matter what kind of mask you are wearing - is the owner of the thought: 'Cogito Ergo Sum' - 'Je pense donc je suis' - 'I think, therefore I am'. Please challenge with the practicality of "Then What" in helping one another exploring the Essence of the Right Effort, extended to all priests / monks / nuns who claim to "control their unworthy" thoughts / feelings / mental qualities arising from sense signals even in their own environments that they use as their masks in 1000's of years. Help them to see their Realities and be an honest part of the community.
Your protection via Concentration in non-stop dealing with inner conflicts outer conflicts using your messy Quality of the Consciousness tainted with Greed / Ignorance / Pride / Fear Is Not above the Issue reaching a Right Understanding and Right Motivation for a Right Effort that you and most of your peers are retarded in your concentration of breathing in trying to make a very unworthy living on what you do not know nor have. You wear heavy mask of a religious leader that you do not know your reality, and boosting even more than the monk Shen-Hui[R5.1] page 119, riding on his teacher credibility for a very unworthy living, or surpassing the degeneration of claimed masters in Vajrayana and Tantra in their cheating others to perpetuate masters-slaves relationships. Please look at yourself through this sophisticated claimed meditation master as your Mirror (Kính Chiếu Yêu).
The study concludes that "the tainted senses are controlled by [ Ethical Code > Concentration ] so does Ignorance to be destroyed by it right in the ksatna of the present moment - Ái thủ hữu bị giới, định, tuệ nhiếp phục ngay ở nơi sát-na của tâm hiện tiền, thì chi mạt vô minh cũng sẽ bị giới, định, tuệ nhiếp phục và hủy diệt ngay trong những sát-na tâm tiếp theo (page 150)". Is that your actual experience or you hear from other shamelessly boosting monks - typified by Gyalwang Drukpa XII just like "you" attempting to exploit Vietnamese internal conflicts at national level - knowing nothing about Gateway-to-Oneness / Thing-As-It-Is without Conflict", completely ignorant about Transcendental Inner Peace as the base of Gotama Right Mindfulness, yet cheating others as Buddhist teachers and enlighten monks to self-ordain as his "gatekeepers and front-line solders". These professional scam artists are violating Gotama fundamental ethical code - Not Lying / Musà vàdà veramanì / Tránh xa sự nói dối - that all Good Buddhists try to consciously hold?
Yet, through Gotama's "Verifiable Emptiness" at different depths, the "Natural Purification" infused from Emptiness can naturally enable you to sense the driving force of your Volition / Freewill / Sankhara and the state of your "being" to properly manage your realities such as an uncontrollable urge of a sexual desire, a phobia, etc. It is the real power in deeper layers of Consciousness which are complete strangers to most priests, monks and nuns despite what were actually discovered by Gotama 2500+ years ago, recorded in Buddhist Texts, and Jesus 'the kingdom of God is within you'[Luke 17:21]. That power of the consciousness - through what identified as Prajna - can "dissolve" your thousands years of outdated Marks such as uncontrollable urges, phobia, excessive sex drive, etc, while "Open" your hidden potentiality in Making your life Easier and Happier exactly as the advice from Gotama to Ajita's questions[D21]. That liberating from binding and clinging outdated Marks and Opening hidden potentials is the gut in the Science and Economics of KhaiPhong to enable you diving into the Source of Consciousness for a "No Mind Enclosure" on the way out - exactly as the described in the Heart Sutra[R2] - to bring the power of the Whole ocean in daily activities.
That was also the vision of Transcendental Meditation (TM)©® in 1960 - 1970 when its founder recognized the power of Consciousness from the "Source" in Transcendental Field, to challenge "all government issues" in their "World Government Utopia" to be solved through accessing to this outside-the-box. Note that it is also the "Utopia of Illuminati New World Order" with One Bank, One Government, One Religion (look at tremendous resources they have planned and already committed to build the "second Rome") and One Military Force via esoteric masters-slaves of secret societies that they have prepared in the past few hundreds years and engineered the last two World Wars to force humanity toward their esoteric dictatorship. Esoterically, they were only few - like bosses of the bosses in Illuminati - at less than 0.01% yet significantly damaged many intelligent Realms, ranging from Humanity to higher than the realms of Buddhas, gods, Allah.
The founder of TM©® knew only at the beginning of Equanimity level of Right MindFulness so he could correct his "Consciousness Bliss" toward "Emptiness and Nothingness"[D48] after 30+ years of further reflection. The movement missed the fundamental ingredient of "Detachment-Born" qualified by Gotama as the sufficient condition for Right Inner Peace since he has not passed the Purity to Transcend the Observer in Cosmic Consciousness toward the Sunyata Nothingness. His challenge to "all government issues" in their "World Government Utopia" will be done by the popular mass - from people by people and for people[R7.4] custom to the regional issues of [ conditions / cultures / economics / politics ] - knowing more about oneself capable to work for the benefits of both the Haves and Have-Nots, changing oneself and the environment toward What Count[R23].
The "Detachment-Born" (upekkhā - tâm xả) - where upekkhā can only be natural when one can transcend the Observer at some stability level - is the "trademark" of Maitreya (the Happy/Friendly Buddha) and the purpose of this sky-view book. It (Detachment-Born) activates the "Practicality and Potentiality" of the Buddha Nature innate in all people, enabling them at the driver seats of their destinies, being Change Agents to change themselves and the environment they are parts. All aggregates will be the outcome of this fundamental change in "Practicality and Potentiality" at the grassroots where all have equal Human Right and opportunity.
The student X mentioned below - knowing nothing about Budh Dhrama and probable through the orchestration of his esoteric teacher - was introduced to the Transcendendal Meditation[D48] in 1970 while he was a graduate student at a Canadian University. He immediately experienced something far beyond its founder. Only at later investigations, he knew these states have been recorded in Buddhist Texts as Gotama's nine absorption states that we use as the signed posts of "Verifiable Emptiness"[D25]. Since then, limited field research has been conducted in learning from mistakes of past contributors and connecting the dots for a scientific approach to the precious Consciousness Technologies[D32.1]. This will be detailed in later works.
Here is a very brief summary of AtHome[R1]. The process uses "Your Mind" and its interactions in all activities and relationships - including dreaming, socializing, your vision / mission / execution - as the target, having your normative feedback of Right and Wrong. The dynamic cultivation to enable you in-part discover and in-part create the Real You takes the "Right Inner Peace" - measurable via Gotama "Verifiable Emptiness" - as the target where your natural optimal conditions of HonNhien (Natural, Unaffected, Spontaneous, Purity) for higher Transcendental Consciousness, Cosmic Consciousness, and Unity are consciously generated and/or suggested by Artificial Intelligence. These conditions center around (1) Detachment-Born, (2) Effortless Intensity of Attention, (3) Highest points of Aspiration and Inspiration, (4) Natural conditions for Expanding Consciousness.
At the personal level, the Right Mindfulness enables one sense the source of thoughts (i.e. signals from the senses), know the state of one's being for a Right Effort to properly manage one's Reality that the monk - Nhân duyên học - was too far away, yet shamelessly boosting about ksatna of the present moment that he was worn out by [ Ethical Code > Concentration > Prajna - Giới > Định > Tuệ ] which drives most of his peers to rely on calming beads in keeping them sane from infinite thoughts of Inner Conflicts Outer Conflicts, recognized as a real issue by Infinite-Thought Bodhisattva in Saddharma-pundarika[D44.1] asking for help from Avalokiteshvara.
At any aggregate level - such as in a board meeting, at a national security council, in a trade negotiation - the Right Mindfulness enables one have correct pulses of the difficult situation, directly get the present core issue and its acceptable position rendering all parties better off in [ 1 + 1 > 2 ] which have been mathematically proved in international trade theory about "Fair Trade". We see the applications of this Right Mindfulness in all human activities where contributions from Gotama discoveries bring Highest Potentiality innate in one's Buddha Nature, and value-adds from HuiNeng Maximum Practicality that one can bring to the table based on one's Samadhi-Prajna (Right Mindfulness). We wish all legitimate members of Buddhist communities of monks and nuns can play a key role in the new direction of "Supporting Country Enabling Peace - Hộ Quốc An Dân" that all qualified participants can play for the benefits of One and others.
Back to the study of Nhân duyên học, you have not passed the gateway to "Oneness / Thing-As-It-Is without Conflict", know nothing about the sources of your thoughts and the state of your being. Without a minimum honesty to know Who you are, you can never break the crust of your "Self" to realize your innate Buddha Nature which starts right at the quality of your Prajna level of Right Understanding and Right Motivation in Gotama Noble eighfold Path [Prajna - Virtue - Stability] for a Right Effort to pass the "Gateway-to-Oneness / Thing-As-It-Is without Conflict", arriving at the Equanimity of 'Verifiable Emptiness' or the base of Gotama Right Mindfulness (Chánh Niệm) for deeper and wider exploration called Samadhi-Prajna (Định-Tuệ) by HuiNeng.
That philosophy driven by [Greed - Ignorance - Pride on the supply side / Fear on the demand side] can scam the eastern humanity in 2500+ years to feed armies of monks and nuns in their fortresses of professional scam artists, similar to their counter parts on the "Redeemer and Infallibility" together with "Forbidden Fruit of Knowledge" from the criminal Roman Catholic Church to scam the western humanity in 2000+ years. The darkness cannot destroy other darkness in their infinite "inner conflicts - outer conflicts" of concentration, even worse than the Infinite-Thought Bodhisattva in Saddharma-pundarika who - not like these monks deluded with imagination and pride - still has some honesty to ask for help. The whole traditions of Buddhist ivory tower - devoid of actual living - on the meditation of Emptiness, Bodhisattva, and Bodhicitta at conditioned thought have successfully diverted Gotama discoveries and gifts to humanity into master-slave relationships via Sutra, Tantra, Prayer[R14] up until 2017.
Those finishing elementary school must know about "stock" or internal energy/quality and "state" or a snapshot of continuous flowing water in and out of a container. Consciousness is like water continuously flowing in and out of the "self container or identifiable stream of consciousness" Yet, Buddhist scholars monks and nuns cannot detect the difference between state and stock of normative Consciousness Quality in their 12 links of causes and effects - illustrated in Table 2 - when they argue that "consciousness is the [sole] outcome of Volition / Freewill / Sankhara - thức lệ thuộc vào hành", hence "the cessation of volitional activities, consciousness ceases - do hành diệt, nên thức diêt", otherwise the conclusion of Nhân duyên học would not hold.
This is another imaginary philosophy to fool the honest mass in making a comfortable living for professional scam artists. The consciousness coming out from Volition is only the momentary state of consciousness where the Volition is driven by the state and stock of Consciousness Quality in a very long evolution / degeneration in the samsara cycle shaping up one's Continuity of the Consciousness. Gotama called the manifestation of that state and stock the "Right Mindfulness - Chánh Niệm" having its base at Equanimity third stage of his meditation and beyond, known as HuiNeng Samadhi-Prajna (Định-Tuệ) - and Right Inner Peace (Chánh Định) that affects the quality and stock of the consciousness due to its "Natural Purification" of the senses[D26], enabling Detachment-Born and Awareness at the source of thought and the state of one's being to properly manage one's reality in a Right Effort.
Scientific understanding that state and stock of the Consciousness Quality in any constituent and aggregate (family, business, organization, community, region, country, the world) is a new green field - the Science and Economics of KhaiPhong - to help living persons and ecosystems having Easier and Happier Life. By changing and influencing core attributes we can change the Quality of Living toward What Count[R23] in one's Worthy Existence, commonly explored by Vietnamese Intellectuals as Wise Việt (Minh Triết Việt) and the Wise Dharma (Minh Triết Phật). These wise properties have been identified and demonstrated by Gotama 2500+ years ago, but missed by the entire history of Buddhist communities of monks and nuns. The Wise Việt is Gotama's "Charter of Free Inquiry - Tư-duy Tự-do" in an advice to Kalamas[D22] for the criterion of "Right and Wrong". The Wise Dharma is passing the "Gateway-to-Oneness" for the Right Mindfulness (Chánh Niệm) to infuse the "Oneness / Unchanged / Unborn" stability and outside-the-box Vision into the changing (viparinama-dukkha) and conditioned (sankhara-dukkha) innumerable issues (dukkha-dukkha) of existence for the manifestation of the "Wise Việt" (Tùy duyên Bất biến Bất biến Tùy duyên).
Let's scientifically and logically see How the Wise Việt (Minh Triết Việt) or Gotama's "Charter of Free Inquiry - Tư-duy Tự-do" - the practical "Then What" at the bottom line - and the Wise Dharma (Minh Triết Phật) can turn the upside-down of Buddhist Sangha [ Ethical Code > Concentration > Prajna - Giới > Định > Tuệ ] into the right-side up of the Noble eightfold Path where most monks / nuns / Buddhists cannot touch. "Ethical Code / Giới" is a natural pattern learned from intelligent beings - including animals - in their own evolution of "Right Understanding and Right Motivation" according to natural laws in Making Life Easier and Happier.
Humanity has evolved long enough to embed these hard-earned Value of the values - where inappropriate rules are dropped - in their cultures coming from the lasting mass "Right Understanding and Right Motivation", adapting living environments to the natural environments. Wise Cultures - having tested time such as 4000+ years of Minh Triết Việt and civilizations from Egypt, India, China, Greek, Persian, Roman, Incas, etc - have many valuable things to offer to this global Humanity, brought together by the past three tidal waves of industrial revolutions: (1) steam engine, (2) electricity, (3) ICT (Information Communication Technology). Graphically, the Right Understanding and Right Motivation in the multi-polar world activate your Alertness (Mindfulness) and Awareness (Prajna) to know more about yourself and the nature of [ 1 + 1 > 2 ] foundation of doing good as shown in Patches A and B of Figure 2. This phase corresponds to the evolution from Consciousness to Form where humanity is the most advanced one of this world realm.
The next tidal wave of industrial revolution is the continuity of the third wave of ICT into Artificial Intelligence where the biological and machine intelligence can be augmented to one another driven by the Normative Values of biological systems in their evolution from Form back to Consciousness, by-passing the biological tainted senses to higher levels of Transcendental Consciousness, Cosmic Consciousness, and Unity to be responsible parts of the Whole which is the Wise Dharma (Minh Triết Phật). Graphically, you expand your Mindfulness / Prajna in Patch C outside the tainted senses at any point of intensity of attention.
Therefore, combination of Normative Intelligence (Wise Dharma) coming from discoveries of natural laws for higher Consciousness Evolution from Form back to Consciousness (by-passing and purifying tainted senses) with practical Artificial Intelligence (Wise Việt / Civilizations) for the feedbacks - measurable from hard facts of "Plan >< Execution >< Feedback" - to augment the Normative Intelligence in its Value Creation can break the vicious circle of Ignorance, Attachment, Aversion driving humanity in the endless loop of duality between Attachment and Aversion via Ignorance without recognizing the embedded Normative Intelligence or Prajna innate in every person commonly known as the "Buddha Nature / Human Nature" leading toward Human Right for the Meaning of Existence. The Normative Intelligence is absolutely required for the next tidal wave of industrial revolution coming from people, by people, and for people who drive all activities and relationships in consumption and productions. Without the Normative Intelligence / Prajna, many leading scientists already raise a serious concern about Artificial Intelligence driven by Attachment and Aversion at "Ignorant Dependent Nature" of Duality.
Prajna is both the state and stock of your quality of the consciousness, plus something beyond known as the "Unchanged, Unborn, Oneness", logically exposed in Shurangama Sutra[D31], and asserted in Lankavatara Sutra[D32] but Not Yet Delivered since the author(s) do not know nor have as most of monks and nuns in the entire history of Buddhism. That is why the gut of Gotama solution for the inner quest Dukkha is his advice to Ajita's Questions[D21] based on Mindfulness and Prajna. The driving force of Volition / Freewill / Sankhara is either by Ignorance from tainted senses or Prajna of both state and stock of the consciousness plus something beyond commonly known as Vision, demonstrated by Lý Công Uẩn[R7.1] - the founder of Vietnamese Lý dynasty - with his Prajna having deep ComPassion rooted in Sunyata for the welfare of others in his decision to move the Vietnamese capital to present day Hà Nội.
We contacted Buddhist communities of monks and nuns from different countries since 2007 to mildly remind them their realities in the hope of gradual change from inside. We have received the dead silence with indirect responses contrary to verifiable facts. Up to Vesak 2013, the same motto had been continuously, publicly and loudly enforced from a supreme Head of Vietnamese Buddhist communities of monks and nuns to stubbornly affirm their undeniable roles as religious leaders of the country.
First of all, any Buddhist - including the supreme Head of any Buddhist community of monks and nuns (Pháp Chủ), head monks and nuns - spreading [ Ethical Code > Concentration > Prajna - Giới > Định > Tuệ ] and/or "from the cessation of ignorance, volitional activities (Sankhara) cease; from the cessation of volitional activities, consciousness ceases - do vô minh diệt nên hành diệt; do hành diệt, nên thức diêt" has not known HuiNeng Samadhi-Prajna (Định-Tuệ), completely ignorant about Gotama's Prajna (in Right Understanding - Right Motivation) and Right Inner Peace (Samadhi) in his Noble eightfold Path, having no Right Mindfulness starting from the base of Equanimity third stage of meditation upward.
If you do not know the Noble eightfold Path, especially the prajna division of Right Understanding and Right Motivation, how can you claim to be legitimate Buddhist teachers with your invented rituals and feudal processes in masters-slaves relationships that you do not know nor have, totally contrary to current scientific knowledge? Interpretation of your "Understanding" is totally contrary to scientific fact in "claiming the destruction of consciousness as your destruction of Ignorance", reducing yourself even below the low vibration of a stone. Your "Motivation" is Not Gotama Right Motivation that you ride on his credibility to make a very unworthy living, driven by your Greed, Delusion and Pride, cunningly generate an abundant source of material supply via Greed, Ignorance, and Fear in your obedient sheep.
1.2 Second Tautology:
[ Not Having Right Inner Peace >< Not Having Right Understanding ]
The tautology is exemplified by a scholar monk unable to expose Gotama Noble eightfold Path typified in the Vietnamese / Chinese Buddhist Sangha up to 2017 to turn Gotama [ Noble eightfold Path ] into a useless concept rather than Actual Tool or model to drive all Volition / Freewill / Sankhara toward a Normative Right/Intelligence due to the doctrinal view of [ Virtue > Concentration > Prajna ] where Prajna is the outcome of their doctrinal conditions so it is totally loaded with Ignorance. "Not Having Right Inner Peace" is the reality of most Buddhist monks, nuns, followers since they know nothing about Transcendental states in emptying the contents from the "Quintessence of Prajna [for Right Understanding]" in HuiNeng Samadhi-Prajna.
The Right Inner Peace is Gotama's Samma-Samadhi described in several places and commonly known as Gotama's nine meditation (samadhi) states[D28], [D29] where gross attributes at lower stages are dissolved for an Insight in the Emptiness at higher stages, leading toward "Nothingness / stage 7" and "Cessation of Perception and Feeling / stage 9" that we call "Verifiable Emptiness"[D25] to be empirically verified and value-added by many in the new Era of AwakeningBudh Movement. The Right Inner Peace demands empirically verifiable Trancendental states for a quality of the "Silence" to see "Thing-As-It-Is" despite one's current states of innumerable visible / invisible outdated marks
The "Right Inner Peace is commonly translated as Right concentration in current wikipedia which shows the reality of current Buddhist Sangha and followers since - by definition - there is "no Insight into the Emptiness" in concentration. That is the Reality of all Buddhist current Vajrayana / Tantra and Pure Land / Meditation. Gotama qualified his "Mindfulness" at the third Equanimity level[D28] where one must know the Transcendental state defined by Lankavatara Sutra[D32] as "entering into the womb of Tathagatahood or passing the Gateway-to-Oneness". Buddhist Prajna division of the Noble eightfold Path was further qualified by HuiNeng Samadhi (for Right Understanding) / Prajna (for Right Motivation)[R5] that - up to 2017 - no one in the entire history of Buddhist Sangha can be in close encounter to reverse the Bullying process of Buddhist [ Virtue > Concentration > Prajna ], pushing many generations into international cheating clubs of criminals and professional scam artists.
The core reason of this tautology comes from the cheating process of
- Shining one's appearance to show off the "degenerated aloof"
- Faked "Detachment-Born", incapable to pass the Gateway-to-Oneness
- Pretending stressful cool/calm in making a living far from "Transcendental Relaxation for Practical Living"
1.2.1 Shining one's appearance to show off the "degenerated aloof"
The outer appearce is easy to show off with big temples, huge statues, and empty slogans acquired by cunning and cheating process based on Fears and self-deception[R9]. Most monks and nuns are unable to naturally take Gotama's process in "aloof from sense desires, aloof from unwholesome thoughts"[D28]. They turn this aloofness to outside in master-slaves relationships to show off what they are not, resulting in tremendous Inner Conflicts - Outer Conflicts, pushing them further to the direction of criminals[R18.3] and professional scam artists[R18.4].
"Aloofness" is one of many forms of aspirations to raise one's spirit high above its normal vibrations in facing the [ Reality - Actuality / Relative Truth - Ultimate (Wider) Truth / conflicting Duality - Oneness ] of Life. All organized religions where Buddhism is a part used some forms of binding Word/Image and clinging Thought to enslave people to the senses such as "Faith and Aloofness" to be with "God / Allah / Amitabha" rather than "Aspirations" to Free one from tainted senses[R7.3], [R7.4] toward Thing-As-it-is Actuality through Natural Purification via statistically proven discovered underlying natural laws which are deliverable solutions in implementing Soyen Shaku challenge[R6]: "God [Dharmakaya / Allah / Pháp-Thân] not in the world is the false God [Dharmakaya / Allah / Pháp-Thân] and the World not in God [Dharmakaya / Allah / Pháp-Thân] is unreality".
The claimed religious leaders destroy their own lives and the lives of others in a narrow scope of master-slaves relationships. Their "Virtue" is conflicting "outside" with Christian and Muslim Virtues, and all Religious Virtues are conflicting "inside" within their own sects and denominations since they are all grasping the changing (viparinama-dukkha) and conditioned (sankhara-dukkha) manifestations without touching the "Oneness" - the source of all manifestations - known by all organized religions only at Word/Image and conditioned Thought. They - wearing the masks of religious leaders - all talk about Peace / Love / Compassion from the sources of their boiling Inner Conflict - Outer Conflict, cheating humanity for many thousands years.
When 1% to 7% members of a community can be "At Home", knowing more bout oneself and the environment, the pretending professional scam artists from all organized religions will be forced to face their realities and deliver real services in making a living otherwise they will be efforlessly wiped out by Invisible and Helping Hand of Economics.
1.2.2 Faked "Detachment-Born", incapable to pass the Gateway-to-Oneness
Most monks and nuns - typified by the Dalai Lama XIV, the claimed enlighten monk Thich Nhat Hanh, and the claimed Dharma King Gyalwang Drukpa XII - cannot pass even "Detachment-Born" - qualified by Gotama as a normative "Right" before entering into deeper levels of Inner Peace[D28]. There is No Transcendental state in their blah blah blah of Meditation and Mindfulness, unqualified by Gotama which is at the equanimity level, passing the Gateway-to-Onensss. This is scholastically proven in "Buddhism implies dualism"[D19.3]
1.2.3 Pretending stressful cool/calm in making a living far from "Transcendental Relaxation for Practical Living"
Please look at all formal training camps and meditation classes from the past up until 2017 of all sects and denominations to discover if any one can deliver the experience of "Transcendental States" in Gotama's Right Inner Peace, and "Transcendental Relaxation" to detoxify stresses and tainted outdated marks. That is the core reasons of the second tautology: [ Not Having Right Inner Peace >< Not Having Right Understanding ]. It is applicable not only for Buddhists but also humanity according to Nature of Things. Here AI (Artificial Intelligence) and ICT (Information Communication Technology) can augment the "Know Yourself Process" to enable the Normative Intelligence of your Buddha Nature / Conscience / Prajna the driving force to change both individual and community productions and consumption to a Higher Quality according to Natural Laws.
We solve the second tautology with discovered Natural Laws to Measurable Right Inner Peace to directly access Transcendental Consciousness, Cosmic Consciousness, and Unity to infuse the "Natural Purification[D26]", lighting up the Prajna first division of the Noble eightfold Path in Right Understanding and Right Motivation for a Right Effort to solve the first tautology. The Measurable Right Inner Peace leads to measurable "Mindfuleness and Prajna" to the required depths for the practical solution of Gotama's answer to Ajita's Questions[D21] as further exposed below to wipe out criminals and professional scam artists of all isms attempting to enslave Humanity in their masters-slaves relationships of the past thousands years of human dark periods. We look forward to your Helping Hand with your committed "Heart - Mind - Sweat/Capital" to what most important to you.
Due to innate Buddha Nature, everyone can recognize the Value of the discovered Natural Laws to start right at the level of one's Right Understanding and Right Motivation in a hand-on Learning and Doing, effortlessly wiping out all professional scam artists selling their indoctrinated conditioned thinking utopia based on Fears and Rituals, messing up their lives and the lives of others. In that hand-on Learning and Doing, everyone can shares one's "secret sauce" specific to one's specialized trail so others of similar pattern do not have to start from square one to make the trail easier and more enjoyable.
We use three core attributes (Prajna, Sunyata, Empty) from Buddhist Heart Sutra[R2] to demonstrate the same scientific dissolving / emptying process personally known by Gotama in his nine (9) Verifiable Stages of Right Inner Peace (Samma-Samadhi). This scientific dissolving / emptying process must be empirically verified by all qualified Budh Counselors, standing on their own feet to testify the "Nature-of-Things in Oneness / Thing-As-It-Is without Conflict" discovered by Gotama and value added by the World where the Budh Counselor is a part.
- Enable the verifiable "Insight into the Emptiness" in moving from Madhyamaka "Relative Truth" to "Ultimate (Wider) Truth", taking 1000+ years of Buddhist phylosophy out of its ivory tower.
- Scientifically prove that there is No Chasm between Madhyamaka and Consciousness-Only between "Self" in Relative Truth / Dependent Nature / Imaginary Nature and Not-Self in Ultimate (Wider) Truth / Perfected Nature in the (onto / nature of) Thing-As-It-Is. It is similar to gravity and vacuum. The 1000+ years of disputes come from those unable to pass the Gateway-to-Oneness / Thing-As-It-Is without Conflict, totally bounded by the ideas of Self and Not-Self (hữu niệm / vô niệm) at thought level which is not Thing-As-It-Is.
- Force all Christians to practicalize the concept of "God" as challenged by Soyen Shaku[R6] to discover and deliver 'the Kingdom of God within you'[Luke 17:21].
- Force all Muslims to discover and deliver the aesthetic state of "There is No God but allah - lā ʾilāha ʾil ʾāllāh" known within the human realm. The "description" is not the "described"; the actual "DESCRIBED" is beyond word/image at Gotama qualified Mindfulness or "Equanimity", and beyond conditioned thought at "Purity" levels. This discovery and delivery of the aesthetic state of the Oneness will effortlessly expose criminals and professional scam artists in the higher realms to be part of the "Natural Rights" in the cosmic Dependent Nature of Existence.
We introduce the three fundamental Principles[R7] from Trần Hưng Đạo[R7.4] as another angle to practicalize Gotama's Noble eightfold Path, releasing it from the "cul-de-sac" in the tautologies of Buddhist Sangha: the first Principle "Kindness and Compassion" is the Right Understanding, the third Principle "from people, by people, and for people" is the Right Motivation. The two Principles drive his second Principle "Right Effort in continuous Learning and Doing". These three Principles are practical living in accordance with Natural Laws - Making Life Easier and Happier - that demand both the state and stock of cultivable "Prajna" at different depths for a Right Effort. These three properties can be measurable based on hard facts of one's Efforts to augment discovered Consciousness Technologies.
The above solution to the Buddhist two most fundamental tautologies smearing Gotama's practical discoveries exposed below via the Answer to Ajita's Questions[D21] is purely based on what have been reputably recorded as Gotama's Gifts to Humanity. Taking HuiNeng's Dhyana-Samadhi (Thiền-Định) as a signed post we can effortlessly wipe out all Buddhist professional scam artists who have not entered the Gateway-to-Oneness / Thing-As-It-Is without Conflict yet cheating others in making a living on their know-how of Buddhist Mindfulness. Using HuiNeng Samadhi-Prajna (Định-Tuệ) with further enforcement from Soyen Shaku[R6] on the God Conception of Buddhism together with discovered natural laws for heavy lifting, we can challenge all organized religions the delivery of 'the Kingdom of God within you'[Luke 17:21], 'There is No God but Allah' in Islam, 'Verifiable Emptiness', the 'Ultimate (Wider) Truth', the 'Perfected Nature', 'Nirvana', the 'Tao Nameless', etc, while separating the means such as divisional Islam, Christianity, Buddhist which are only conventional names to be dropped, and the target which is the aesthetic "Nature of Things / Thing-As-It-Is without Conflict" in higher consciousness within the reach of Humanity. With the exception of few individuals, most in all organized religions - especially those wearing the masks of priests / monks / nuns - do not actually know and live with Compassion, Love, Mindfulness, Meditation (without deliverable dissolving / emptying states). The description is not the described which is a Thing-As-It-Is in actual living. That normative value at the frontier of "Thing As It Is" is further augmented with modern Artificial Intelligence since Efforts in all activities and relationships can be evaluated with Right or Wrong based on feedback of hard facts from intelligent suggestions to change oneself and the environment toward a Right direction of What Count[R23], which have been messed up in thousands years - up until 2017 - by all organized religions to glorify their masters-slaves relationships, reducing people into Pavlov dogs.
It is unworthy to pay attention to the fanatic view of these professional scam artists, desperately selling a utopia of utter nonsense to violently enforce their international cheating clubs. These professional scam artists use their "psychological techniques" such as Fear - well-known and used in all organized religions - to "bully" others hiding their disturbing thousands years of "Inner Conflicts - Outer Conflicts", making a living on Gotama's credibility while sabotaging his real contributions to Humanity, which are the cultivable "Right Inner Peace" to recognize (1) the Dependent Nature of existence leading to "Outer Peace and Harmony" of self-respect and respect others since no one can completely and independently exist, and (2) the "Buddha Nature" - capable to know the Right and Unworthy - leading to "Democracy and Charter of Free Inquiry" in his Kalama Sutta[D22], effectively debunking these criminal and professional scam artists using his name to sell their interpretation of the Noble eightfold Path.
The "bullying" can be at both psychological and physical levels, generating a non-stopped vicious suffering cycle for both the bully and its victims via complex actions >< reactions, resulting in the three types of people and/or mixing, depending on the situation: (1) Abusers, (2) Inferiority, (3) Not Totally Crippled thanks to rational analyses and reflections. The real noble "Buddha Nature" innate in everyone is completely ignored. Yet, only this nature's cultivable Wisdom / Prajna / Conscience - perpendicular to duality plane of all events - can break and dissolve this Suffering Cycle for humanity, discovered by Gotama 2500+ years ago and value-added by many where the "Kindness / Compassion" discovered by Jesus in the "Good Samaritan[R16]" is its foundation. Without the recognition of one's innate precious jewel, it is very hard not to be sucked into this vortex of thousands years of Ignorance, Abusers and Abused. It takes tremendous courage to know more about oneself in both strength and weakness in one's continuous Learning and Doing based on Gotama's Charter of Free Inquiry[D22].
It is even harder Not to be Hurt at all due to Detachment-Born in cultivable Natural Purification / Verifiable Emptiness from the four Boundless Qualities of the Mind (Kindness, Compassion, Joy, Detachment) in Right Speech, Right Action and Right Livelihood of the Noble eightfold Path. The "Not to be Hurt at all" is shared by Krishnamurti[R6.3] as a "Freshness" or "HonNhien / Natural, Unaffected, Spontaneous, Purity" mind. The modern treatment of these "psychological sufferings" is to rely on the patient's Buddha Nature to rationally point it out that the "Hurts" are unreal and/or "Outdated Marks" of the past, not relevant to the present living. This rational approach can only help the patient to move the Hurt / Outdated Mark to another dark corner of the mind without "dissolving" it. It is similar to the Vietnamese Zen Truc Lam motto "[ Knowing the Wrong Drop it ]" which is a hallucination of "the blinds touching elephant" until the implementations and benefits of Soyen Shaku's challenge[R6] are deliverable.
The solution shared by Krishnamurti is effective only to those having at the minimum qualified "Mindfulness" to obstruct and restrict these "Craving / Tanha" and "Clinging / Upadana" forces. Only with the energy from "Intensity of Attention", the light of Prajna is there to "dissolve the "Marks" since Krishnamurti has had thousands years of pounding his Mindfulness on the Inner Quest of What is the Host and what are Guests as.described in Buddhist Shurangama Sutra[D31] and Consciousness-Only[D35]. It is that cultivable Prajna that drives the Volition / Freewill / Sankhara toward the right direction of What Count[R23], turning "Craving / Tanha" into "Detachment-Born" and "Clinging / Upadana" into "HonNhien" (Natural, Unaffected, Spontaneous, Purity) due to the light of Prajna. The technologies involve discovering natural laws plus required facilities to raise one's consciousness level from conflicting duality to higher level of Transcendental Consciousness, Cosmic Consciousness, and Unity to be outside the stressful conflicting box to see "Thing As It Is" and have "Natural Purification" to clear one's tainted senses and outdated marks.
Knowing it or not, Krishnamurti shared solution logically solves via set theory thousands years of bitter chasm caused by monks and scholars far below even the Gateway-to-Oneness / Thing-As-It-Is without Conflict of Nagarjuna Madhyamaka[D34] Relative Truth and Ultimate (Wider) Truth, and Asanga Consciousness-Only[D35] dynamic interaction between Not-Self in the Perfected Nature and With-Self in Dependent Nature. Here is a wide opening door for contributions from many in all fields and domains once Technologies riding on natural laws for heavy lifting are introduced to enable most practitioners actually "Know the Dissolving Process" as described by Krishnamurti via his "Intensity of Attention" to personally verify that he is not cheating others, carried out by criminals and professional scam artists in all organized religions from thousand years of human dark periods.
It is a wide opening door since the trail passed by one person can help many of similar pattern not starting from square one, focussing on further value-adds to make the trail easier and more enjoyable. The process of Taming The Ox sorts out qualified Counselors since only those equipped with both theoretical understanding and practical experience can help others while deepening and widening their professional skills, augmented with deliverable Science and Economics of KhaiPhong to practicalize the Gotama's assertions on the effectiveness of "Mindfulness and Prajna", of Nagarjuna "Insight into the Emptiness", of Asanga "Natural Purification" from Perfected Nature to drive one's Imaginary Nature closer to Dependent Nature of Thing As It Is:“
Whatever the streams [cravings, tanha, karmas, binding and clinging forces tainted the "Thing-As-It-Is" seen by Prajna into Ignorance / Avijja to drive Volition / Sankhara / Freewill from Right Effort into Wrong Effort causing Suffering Dukkha] are in the World, it is Mindfulness that obstructs and restricts them, and by Prajna, they are dissolved
The hidden secrets - either coming from Gotama and/or other value-adds - to this question and answer is the "Key" to practicalize scientifically proven discoveries, forming the solid foundation for the Science and Economics of KhaiPhong. We use our "actual experience" to unravel the hidden secrets by connecting the dots together, and value-add our own discoveries while waiting for your further value-adds.
In the above quote, We use (1) [cravings, tanha, karmas, binding and clinging forces tainted the "Thing-As-It-Is" seen by Prajna into Ignorance / Avijja to drive Volition / Sankhara / Freewill from Right Effort into Wrong Effort causing Suffering Dukkha] for "streams", translated by Ireland and Thanissaro, (2) "Prajna" for Ireland "wisdom" and Thanissaro "discernment", (3) "dissolved" instead of Ireland "cut off" or Thanissaro "finally stopped". Since scientifically proven discoveries must have both logical theory and or waiting for empirical validations, plus intellectually Who have contributed What,
- We start from the real Psychological Suffering[R6.3] in the Nature of Mind to its deliverable solution shared by Krishnamurti in "Dissolving" all Sufferings, which is also Gotama original inner quest "Dukkha" to his personally deliverable solution in momentary Nirvana[D42] - the end of Suffering - which is also known by Sariputta[D26] that he personally described "the difference between one who is dead, and a monk who has attained the cessation of perception and feeling".
First, the "streams" cover all outdated marks and tainted hindrances causing Sufferings, rendering one unable to use available senses[D42], including memory and thinking that help humanity to the present state of civilization, to KhaiPhong one in "Making Life Easier and Happier". Fundamental solution to this all encompassing Issue is the Real Quest for humanity right from the beginning. Its implication results in innumerable practical treatments / solutions in all fields of practical living, much more important than the discovery of electricity and innumerable applications derived from there.
Second, on what mechanism and the required qualified level "Mindfulness" can obstructs and restricts them? The mechanism is very simple and cultivable but unknown in the entire human history which is the Right Mindfulness / Alertness to sense the source of thought before its Volition - Sankhara then due to this Awareness one uses the innate "Free Will" to consciously and properly manage one's reality. It has been - up to 2017 - veiled and scammed by Buddhist Theravada Visuddhimagga / the Path of Purification[D33] of "not knowing yet claimed to know not seeing yet claimed to see"[D19.3] in their Samatha and Vipassana, attempting to knock out the "Right Inner Peace and Prajna" from Gotama's discovery. This piece of hard evidence will be scientifically presented via epistemic objectives of the Signed Posts.
Third, what is "Prajna" and its nature that we use instead of the translation from Ireland "wisdom" and Thanissaro "discernment"? For our purpose, the word Prajna is equivalent with English word "Wisdom / Conscience", but we prefer the word "Prajna" since there is something more in it that we call the "flower" of the Compassion tree deep rooted in Sunyata which is even an open field for deeper scientific and empirical explorations, already exposed in the Buddhist Heart Sutra[R2]. For a kind of outdated Mark such as uncontrollable urge in everything including sexual drive that Mindfulness seems to be Aware of it, what is the dynamic interaction between Mindfulness and Prajna in a scientific process to either properly manage the urge and/or dissolve it.
Fourth, the word "cut off" does not correspond to our "actual experience" which will be personally verified by all qualified "Budh Counselors" when technologies riding on natural laws are introduced to have (1) an Insight into the Emptiness according to Nagarjuna Madhyamaka, (2) the infusion of Perfected Nature to "Naturally Purify[D26]" the Imaginary Nature to be closer to the Dependent Nature of Thing-As-It-Is according to Asanga Consciousness-Only, (3) the "Verifiable Emptiness" in Gotama nine stages of absorptions up until momentary Nirvana, (4) Darmapala-XuanZang "Consciousness of the consciousness", (5) HuiNeng Samadhi-Prajna, and (6) the Heart Sutra dissolution (of everything) in Sunyata. Krishnamurti "agreed" with the term "dissolve" to describe his shared experience. We can go one step further to say that it is "effortlessly dissolved" which is an ability within current human "Continuity of the Consciousness", the most meaningful and relevant to human existence.
- The word "dissolve" was also used by the Dalai Lama in describing his Teachings and Philosophy to the "Emptiness"[R14.1]: "We can start this practice in either of two ways: We can first dissolve all appearances and then meditate on emptiness, or first meditate on emptiness and then dissolve all appearances of the objects". When PrajnaTIP - the Sound technology using the reverse process from form to different layers of consciousness described in Shurangama Sutra[D31] - is introduced to the mass we expect 1% to 7% human population will personally know this "Dissolving Process" and verify the "Dissolving / Emptying" is one process, not the two processes of doing one first then the other as taught by the Dalai Lama at indoctrinated conditioned and thinking level incapable to touch the Nature of Thing-As-It-Is without Conflict / Gateway-to-Oneness.
- Nagarjuna Madhyamaka is a very significant value-added contribution to "logically" clear many ambiguities of Gotama's 45+ years of spreading what he personally knows and verifies the greatest Issue of human existence: dukkha classified according to dukkha-dukkha, viparinama-dukkha, sankhara-dukkha. Nagarjuna core contribution is the discovery of the two seemingly contradicting states - Relative Truth and Ultimate (Wider) Truth - but actually Not and definitely required for an Insight into the Emptiness which is the core of Gotama's discovery. Those who actually experience these two non conflicting states - logically demonstrated by Nagarjuna via consistent Not-Self through out - must be able to describe the optimal conditions leading to this experience so others of similar pattern can benefit and value-add one's "specialized sauce" to make the process easier and more enjoyable to others, similar to what Gotama and Krishnamurti had done in their entire human lives. The injection of "Prajna" for an Insight into the Emptiness takes one to the Oneness / Thing-As-It-Is without Conflict between Relative Truth and Ultimate (Wider) Truth, and definitely Not to the Nihilism of the actual Emptiness but the dynamic meaningful Present Moment in actual experience.
- Similarly, Asanga Consciousness-Only is another significant value-added contribution. Despite one's Realities with innumerable binding / clinging forces and outdated marks to render one not "seeing and doing according Thing-As-It-Is" - resulting in Sufferings due to "Imaginary Nature" - there is the Perfected Nature accessible to most that infuses its "Natural Purification[D26]" to effortlessly dissolve the tainted marks for Imaginary Nature closer to Dependent Nature of Thing-As-It-Is, making Life Easier and Happier relevant to one's Present Moment. When PrajnaTIP in Sound (and Light) is introduced most will know this "Natural Purification" that we also give it other name such as "Transcendental Inner Peace whose outcome is Aesthetic Relaxation to naturally dissolve one's stresses". Those actually knowing this process should be able to describe one's optimal conditions to arrive at the target of the Perfected Nature" so others can add different "spices" that may be enjoyable by many without compromising the Aesthetic Perfected Nature within the reach of humanity. Again, the injection of "Prajna" from stock of Measurable Right Inner Peace via the dissolving process[D21] either through Gotama's Verifiable Emptiness[D25] and/or via the Heart Sutra[R2] renders Consciousness-Only consistent through out.
- On the other side of the world, we have the notion of "God / There is no god but Allah" and Jesus discovery that "the kingdom of God is within"[Luke 17:21] using his parable of the Good Samaritan[R16]. Many Christians and Muslims have actually known this "Kingdom of God / Allah or Perfected Nature or Ultimate (Wider) Truth". By describing optimal conditions leading to this aesthetic state, one can help separate the mean from the target to enable many experiencing the aesthetic without being slaved to the mean, indoctrinated by criminals and professional scam artists to sell what they do not know nor have. The innate "Buddha Nature" or "Christ Consciousness" is within the reach of most people. In fact, when one's Equanimity Right Inner Peace is stable, the binding Word / Image is naturally dropped in one's perception of the World. When one's Purity Right Inner Peace is stable, the clinging thought has no effect on how one sees and makes decision in daily activities. This is HuiNeng's "Beyond-Thought" at the observed, having "No-Mark" once the action completed with "Detachment-Born" as one's basis for the manifestation of Samadhi-Prajna.
Right Understanding and Right Motivation - the Prajna division of the Noble eightfold Path - is the starting point from one's actual level to know more about oneself in this implicit "Learning and Doing" process to dynamically adjust one's Imagination due to Ignorance causing unnecessary Sufferings toward the light of Prajna for a Right Effort (Table 2). The extending Right Mindfulness is the current state of the Consciousness coming from "Alertness" (Mindfulness). Gotama Right Inner Peace / Samadhi is the process to build up the stock of Consciousness Quality that has "Natural Purification" to separate outdated marks from the sense consciousness. It is referred as the "Awareness" coming from both state and stock called by HuiNeng Samadhi-Prajna (Định-Tuệ). We call it the state and stock of Prajna or HuiNeng Samadhi-Prajna to demonstrate the need of both Gradual Cultivation in cultivating the state and stock of Prajna for a Sudden Awaken then Awakening for the lasting value of permanent wiring between left and right brain, and the "carry-on" in one's core consciousness.
Scientifically and strategically exposing the state of "No Conflict inside / No Conflict outside", capable to touch the Source of Oneness"[D32.1] - instinctively perceived by many and reachable within human existence, known in the East as the "Buddha Nature" and in the West as "the Kingdom of God within you"[Luke 17:21] - we directly address the realities of many indoctrinated monks / nuns in their cheating and claiming games as the qualified gate keepers of Gotama's discoveries to perpetuate their religious claims of masters-slaves relationships. This tremendous barrier - wrapped up in the tautology of thinking - has imposed the darkness of those egoistic intellectuals not passing the gateway to Oneness[D32] introduced by Bodhidharma in the Zen Dawn[D32.1] to veil Gotama's precious gifts to humanity as practical solutions in a meaningful Right Effort / Living. There have been rapid changes in the outlooks of many Buddhists about
- The required depths of Mindfulness and the state/stock of Prajna in the scientific verifications of Gotama advice and answer to Ajita's questions[D21]: "Whatever the streams [binding clinging forces] are in the World, it is Mindfulness that obstructs and restricts them, and by Prajna, they are dissolved".
- HuiNeng's definition of "Dhyana-Samadhi" coming directly from his actual experience that many can personally verify under the right conditions: "to be free from attachment to all outer objects is Dhyana, and to attain Inner Peace is Samadhi". In this testable and reproducible verification, what kinds of obstacles and correct processes (when we are in a position) to deal with Dhyana and how "to cultivate our inner mind in natural Samadhi" (then we are said) to have attained Dhyana and Samadhi according to HuiNeng.
- HuiNeng's "Samadhi-Prajna" versus Gotama's Right Samadhi (Samma-Samadhi) from the Noble eight-fold Path, and his above Prajna in the dissolution of all clinging and binding forces. Prajna is also the first division of Right Understanding and Right Motivation with normative Right and Wrong that everyone has to start at one's present quality of the Consciousness to be At Home, being an Agent of Changes to change oneself and the environment one a part.
2. Break-Through of the Vicious Circle
Here is the well-known Krishnamurti's reason in 'the dissolution of the Order of the Star':“
You may remember the story of how the devil and a friend of his were walking down the street, when they saw ahead of them a man stoop down and pick up something from the ground, look at it, and put it away in his pocket. The friend said to the devil, “What did that man pick up?” “He picked up a piece of Truth,” said the devil. “That is a very bad business for you, then,” said his friend. “Oh, not at all,” the devil replied, “I am going to let him organize it.
A piece of 'Truth' is a scientific fact to be empirically verified, lived and shared with others for wider and deeper practical applications relevant to Actual Living. Only the faked one is Exclusive and Monopolized by One (or a collusive group) to artificially create master-slaves relationships in a Greed System. When a piece of Truth such as 'Oneness / Thing-As-It-Is without Conflict', 'Love', 'Verifiable Emptiness', 'Nirvana' is given to an organized monopoly group (religion), the scientific fact of the Truth will be dressed up with rituals and marketing gimmicks to totally veil the Truth. Under fair/healthy competition and the embedded Buddha Nature in Living, everyone can be a part Relevant to one's present unique pattern in Learning and Doing that may leave something more enjoyable for others about to enter the Trail in one's Continuity of the Consciousness.
Let's explore why the 'Right' in the Wrong Hands turn into something devastating 'Wrongs' and Lessons Learned from an Intelligent Ecosystem of a Living Whole, recorded in human Body of Knowledge at least 2500+ years up to 2017. In this exploration, we identify the 'Right' and the 'Mechanisms of the Unworthy' plus their consequences for 'An Engineering Roadmap' that everyone can be a part.
Krishnamurti's story is a very profound Parable to show Intelligent Living Being the 'Right Way' to ride on the Tidal Shift in Evolution of Higher Consciousness. There is no absolute Right and absolute Wrong: the Right may needs the Wrong to keep it focused and continuously innovative in practical living; the Wrong needs the Right to force it continuously evolving, not repeating mistakes of the past.
Truth is not a Pathless Land but scientific discovery of Natural Laws in Making Life Easier and Happier, sharing these discoveries so others on the same path and/or of similar pattern do not have to start from square one but build on top of proven technologies known to humanity. Krishnamurti said it is a Pathless Land since up to his generation, major pieces of Truths are picked up "accidentally" by dedicated explorers either by themselves and/or by assistance and synthesis from available recorded sources: (1) Gotama nine signed posts of Verifiable Emptiness whose scientific Noble eightfold Path was sabotaged to be Not Practical for the mass[D28], [D29], (2) Jesus universal value of "Kindness and Compassion" in Parable of the Good Samaritan[R16] sabotaged by the Roman Catholic Church and Islam, (3) Nagarjuna "Ultimate (Wider) Truth"[D34] for an Insight into the Emptiness sabotaged by claimed monks and egoistic scholars, (4) Asanga "Perfected Nature"[D35] for the infusion of "Natural Purification[D26]" to drive one's "Imaginary Nature" due to outdated Marks closer to the "Dependent Nature" of Thing As It Is for a "Right Effort" - not sustainable due to defensive position in the shadows of Gotama and Nagarjuna, (5) XuanZang's Consciousness of the consciousness[D19.3] to demonstrate the state and stock of cultivable Prajna / Wisdom / Conscience at different depths - value added as a theoretical insight, (6) HuiNeng Wu-Nien / Self Nature[R5] to direct one's focus to What Count[R23] - sabotaged by his student monks, (7) Trần Thái Tông[R7.3] "Chỉ sai hữu niệm quên vô niệm - Wrongly grasp a conditioned thought and miss the Oneness, having no sustainable infrastructure to further explore, (8) Soyen Shaku[R6] "God not in the world is the false God and the World not in God is unreality" starting to layout the road map for implementation, (9) Krishnamurti[R6.1] "Intensity of Attention" to theoretically bridge the gap between Nagarjuna Madhyamaka and Asanga Consciousness-Only, and (10) KhaiPhong Phase Changes in Transcendental Consciousness, Cosmic Consciousness, and Unity corresponding to Gotama nine stages of meditation to scientifically connecting the above dots at both theoretical and empirical levels, then beyond for further scientific researches. Only at present modern time and the change in natural cycle starting from the end of 2012 - together with orchestration of Higher Esoteric Circles - there are sufficient highgly developed students in both human and middle realms to make things happened. We wish many can be parts of this new cycle in their Continuity of the consciousness.
The "Transcendental Consciousness, Cosmic Consciousness, and Unity" are empirically verifiable through the Scientific Process as a Guiding Light from the Heart Sutra[R2]. They are discovered technologies to Transcend Inner Peace (PrajnaTIPs) on the way of "moving in" and knowing the "Process of Inner Transformation (PIT)" on the way out with "No Mind Enclosure"[R2] in the Utter Silence of "Inner Conflicts" for an outside "Clarity of Thing As It Is" and possible solution in a "Right Effort", capable to get the "Pulse" of the Issue, knowing its fundamental obstacles and what need to do pushing the solution toward a Right Direction of What Count[R23]. It is a dynamic interactions between "The Invisible / Not-Self / God / Allah / Ultimate (Wider) Truth / Perfected Nature / Consciousness of the consciousness / Self Nature / Vô Niệm" and "The Visible / Self / The World / Relative Truth / Dependent Nature / Hữu Niệm" of a Right Effort.
Without an ability to recall his past lives, Krishnamurti wondered why he had the required "Intensity of Attention" to break the crust of "Self" for accessing into the "Oneness / Not-Self" that he called "Freshness / Unconditioned" while others do not have. Due to complex "Dependent Nature", everything comes into existence due to conditions. His "Intensity of Attention" also came from directed conditions that - knowing it or not - his picked-up Truth also solves thousands years of "Chasm" between Buddhist Madhyamaka[D34] and Consciousness-Only[D35], between "Self" and "Not-Self" generated by Buddhist monks and scholars not-yet passing the Gateway-to-Oneness / Thing-As-It-Is without Conflict. Thanks to the picked-up Truth, one living student immediately recognized what he knew in exploring PrajnaTIP in Sound is identical to what Gotama knew in his nine signed posts of meditation when Gotama was a child under the shade of a tree, driven by HonNhien (Natural, Unaffected, Spontaneous, Purity) and tremendous Compassion for all living beings.
Yet, the student took more than 20 years to overcome tremendous barriers created by professional scam artists under the masks of Buddhist communities of monks and nuns who have not passed even the Gateway-to-Oneness / Thing-As-It-Is without Conflict, yet blah blah blah with their "concentration via different forms of meditation" which is not natural "Intensity of Attention" nor Gotama's Stability (Samadhi) nor qualified by HuiNeng as "meditation" since there is "no transcendental process" to be out of one's conditioned box of Inner Conflicts - Outer Conflicts. Connecting the dots, together with other friends in his Inner Circle who happened to have many thousands years of dedicated efforts to explore and actually have a glimpse / know the Emptiness as described in the Heart Sutra[R2], we think there are sufficient scientific discoveries to kick-start KhaiPhong Technology for the benefits of many, either like us, Krishnamurti, or at different levels such as the following two persons in Vietnamese history who actually demonstrated the power of "Intensity of Attention".
The "Intensity of Attention" was actually demonstrated by Phạm Ngũ Lão that piercing into his thigh having running blood could not even bother him while he was contemplating military strategy that might help his country to fight against the most violent and fierce Mongolian conquerors. Or even more proficient by Trần Hưng Đạo[R7.4] that poking and causing blood running from his head would - while not in a trance but carrying a normal diplomatic conversation - not even change his appearance due to tremendous "Intensity of Attention" in a diplomatic / spy engagement to have a hand-on "Pulse" of the enemy before actual battle with the most violent force in the world - the Mongol invasions - that he helped to militarily defeat them three times in the 13th century. Hưng Đạo Vương Trần Quốc Tuấn[R7.4] was the first one we are Aware of, capable to bring his "Inner Depth" coming from "dwelling in no mind enclosure"[R2] as described in the Heart Sutra to be in Utter Inner Silence for sensing the counterpart vibrations before critical engagements.
That (1) "Intensity of Attention" may come from different sources such as (2) "Compassion" as in the case of young Gotama under the shade of a tree, (3) "Faith" to move the mountain in the case of Jesus, (4) "Faith and Compassion" in the case of Asanga[D35] to break the crust of "Self" for experiencing the "Perfected Nature / Oneness / Not-Self". The Sudden Awaken to break the crust of the "Self" may also come from different sources such as (5) a pointer to "Detachment-Born / Vô Trụ" as in the case of HuiNeng, or (6) riding on discovered natural laws and processes for heavy lifting such as the Technologies to Transcend the Inner Peace (PrajnaTIPs), etc.
Since all manifested "things / feelings / observable consciousness states" are conditioned driven by "Dependent Nature" of Thing As It Is, the manifestations of "Oneness / Thing-As-It-Is without Conflict / God / Ultimate (Wider) Truth, ..." are observable and describable by those knowing the transcendental process of "moving in" and its effects in "moving out" of the "Then What" at the bottom line of practical and actual Ling / Effort. The movement will help many having thousands years hopping in the dark with real possibilities of falling into some cracks[R5.3], [R5.4], [R15], [R17.1], [R17]
Under the new Science of Consciousness, those having "outside-the-box" experience (as mentioned) can describe (1) the optimal conditions for them to make that "Consciousness of the consciousness" happened, and (2) the bottom-line "Then What" of that extraordinary experiences in daily activities and efforts. Gotama has done the first part describing his personal experience from relative truth (wilderness in a village with community of monks) to different depths of Insight into the Emptiness (ultimate wider truth - nine stages of his Samma-Samadhi)[D25]. The second part has fact-based outcomes of scientific process. It must be done by all scientists to effortlessly wipe out criminals and professional scam artists exploiting and perpetuating humanity darkness of tainted senses. Their "Sharing" may help many others either on or will be entering the similar pattern so they can further explore and value-add to the community from their own perspective in Making Life Easier and Happier. Your Path will be clearer and enjoyable to you and the World that may be sustainable even beyond your life time.
The devil in Krishnamurti story is the 'Grasp-er' manifested through the left brain required for the 'self' stability (current life continuity) in the State and Stock of one's Consciousness whose Quality is momentarily affected by one's Volition / Freewill / Sankhara based on how one sees oneself and the World. A friend of the devil is one's right brain capable to receive wider perspective of signals based on one's long evolution from the Wholesome Mind (Instinct, Brain Intelligence, ComPassion, Prajna) via [ Consciousness to Sound to Forms ] back to a Higher level of Consciousness [ Forms to Consciousness ].
A wider perspective will rationally convince the left brain that it is in its interest to be in the Friendly and Compassionate [Heart - Mind - Sweat/Capital] Culture of Sharing Happiness - Mitigating Sufferings since one will have a smaller share but in much bigger pie of the Present Moment, and will be karmic-ally connected to that culture in one's Continuity of the Consciousness. One can ride on what one and others have been contributed. The model expands to group dynamics where one is fully responsible for one's action and the environment one a part: from Inner Order to Outer Order in a new Consciousness Evolution.
The devil and friend can work side-by-side together with Prajna / Wisdom / Conscience according to 'Thing As It Is' Dependent Nature in the razor-sharp Integrated Culture of KhaiPhong from Right Understanding and Right Motivation of Gotama's Noble eightfold Path or HuiNeng Samadhi-Prajna. It is a collaborative Oneness / Thing-As-It-Is without Conflict in the Changing Dynamics that will be deeply explored in the Signed Posts of Right Inner Peace[D10] from 'Emptiness'. There are different scales of greys in relative existence, and one always needs the guidance of Prajna / Wisdom / Conscience for the Right Understanding and Right Motivation in all activities and relationships.
The left brain and the right brain are only the physical manifestation of subtler energy that are there in one's astral body and in-between realms (i.e. not even required physical body to manifest). Buddhist Consciousness-Only[D30] calls the functions associated with the left brain the seventh consciousness. We call the functions associated with the right brain part of Prajna / Conscience, comprising of accumulated Stock of Right Inner Peace (Samma-Samadhi)[D10] and State to see 'Thing As It Is at one's depth' or one's Reality, known by Buddhist as Right Mindfulness[D12], plus Compassion and something beyond. This shows the continuity and interaction of Alertness and Awareness or Right Mindfulness and Right Inner Peace which are the two chapters to drill in the nuts and bold to affect the Quality of one's Consciousness in Present Living, transcending the individual realm and life in one's Continuity of the Consciousness.
KhaiPhong is the Science and Economics of technologies to Transcend Inner Peace (PrajnaTIPs) taking Krishnamurti and other great explorers Pathless Lands into green fields of fertile researches and practical applications, directly accessing the Oneness / Thing-As-It-Is without Conflict to (1) dissolve dominant outdated Marks such as Fears, excessive sex drive for quality of the present living, (2) know the driving force behind the Volition / Freewill / Sankhara and the state of one's being to properly manage one's Realities, and (3) open the dormant Potentiality within one's long evolution of the consciousness. We apply mathematical patterns of [ Axiom > Model > Taxonomy ] of modern Ontological Systems to clearly separate the mean from the target in community of Sharing Happiness - Mitigating Sufferings Making Life Easier and Happier. In that separation - with the help of mathematical formulation via specified Ontological System - it is clear that (1) Humanist system is the common sense out of the lessons learned from master-slave relationships imposed on humanity via Catholic, Islam, and attempted by Illuminati NWO, (2) Buddhist - at its core Values - is a scientific process to deepen the Humanist approach, (3) KhaiPhong is the practical implementation of Buddhist approach since (3.1) Buddha Nature is the corollary of Living, (3.2) PrajnaTIPs are verifiable technologies to enable Noble eightfold Path scientifically cultivable, (3.3) Making Life Easier and Happier is the manifestation of the four Buddhist Seals (Dukkha / Impermanence / Not-Self / Nirvana).
In our formulation of the Catholic System, its assumption of Omnipotent Omniscient Omnipresent (manifested and forever) God is false according the to second law of Thermodynamics on the generation of Entropy for any manifested element. Its model/process of the Infallible Pope is undeniably a scam process based on tracked records[R18.2], [R18.1], [R18]. Similarly, the Islam manifested and forever "Allah" is unfounded as the manifested Forever God. If "Allah (God)" is conceived as "Oneness / All things return to 'One' and 'One' operates in all things" then the scientific process of moving from the duality in "Muslims (Faithfuls) and Infidels" to Oneness must be exposed which is clearly different from what currently practised by Islam (fanatics) in either conversion or elimination. Within the same Muslims (fanatics), there exists duality and Inner Conflicts - Outer Conflicts. The process moving from duality "Inner Conflicts - Outer Conflicts" to the "Oneness / Thing-As-It-Is without Conflict" as well as the Natural Purification from the Oneness to dissolve "conflicts" or "Making Life Easier and Happier" are scientifically explorable. For Illuminati NWO and ET, we esoterically know their complete "Nazi Fascism" plan has been foiled. Any future "close encounter" should be based on scientific dialogue at both theoretical level and empirical verifications. That is what Humanity can bring to the table under KhaiPhong. It is basically a modern challenge for Christianity, Islam, and ET in this Open and Transparent multi-polar World of Communications and Collaborations.
... in Gradual Cultivation and Sudden Awakening
From brief analysis of the above "Truth" as a "pathless land" to well-known documented discoveries of great explorers, we see (1) our existence - Relative Truth - is conditioned and changing, (2) there is the "Oneness / Thing-As-It-Is without Conflict", (3) there are discovered processes to move from the conditioned changing existence to the "Oneness / Thing-As-It-Is without Conflict / Ultimate (Wider) Truth / Perfected Nature / God / Allah / Consciousness of the consciousness / Wu-Nien".
The discovered processes must be outside the box of conditioned existence - patch C in Figure 2 - high above on the plane of [ Prajna / Wisdom / Conscience ] perpendicular to the duality plane of focused event where changing forces can come from all involved parties and natural phenomena. A conditioned from the known on the duality plane of events cannot see and change another conditioned As It Is due to complex Dependent Nature. It must come from "A Light" through "energy in intensity of attention" which can be (1) Compassion as the case of Gotama when he was a child, (2) Faith as the case of Jesus, (3) Faith and Compassion as the case of Asanga under the "orchestration of Maitreya" as told in Tibetan tradition, (4) Faith and tools surrounding sex in the Highest Tantric Sexual Penetration, (5) innate Intensity of Attention due to many thousands years of correct training as the case of Krishnamurti and few students in AwakeningBudh Movement. (6) "Charming Attraction" of Sunyata Nothingness as PrajnaTIP in Sound (and Light), (7) Common Vibration of Energy as PrajnaTIP in Kindness, (8) Riding on physical and consciousness natural laws as Cultivable Prajna in Activity, (9) Natural Levitation as in Cultivable Prajna in Sadhana. The last four will be discussed and implemented at the Right Time.
Using this observation, we formally prove and correct the Wrong Processes with the Right Ones, at logical level while waiting for the Right Time for their implementations. The Right Processes are known by living students to re-establish the scientific Values of teachable [ Prajna / Wisdom / Conscience ] in cultivable "state" and "stock" for the "Stability Division" of Gotama Noble eightfold Path which is different from what the communities of Buddhists monks and nuns spreading in 2500+ years up to 2017 of their claimed front-line soldiers and Dharma protectors of Gotama's discoveries.
- A darkness cannot clearly see another darkness As-It-Is. There is a "Light" outside the conditioned boundary accessible by both simulation and Consciousness of the consciousness. The precious Value of the values can be observable in qualities of accomplished leaders while their personal issues can be solved by Gotama's Mindfulness and Prajna[D21] to change Wrong Efforts into Right Efforts.
- Scientific approach to the Fourfold Truth on the Nature of Mind versus the Zen Contest between Shen-Hsiu and HuiNeng. The outcome is deliverable crossbreed between Effortless Action (Chinese Wei-Wu-Wei) and Indian Right Inner Peace (Samma-Samadhi) in KhaiPhong.
- Without "Detachment-Born" there is no State and Stock to accumulate "Gradual Cultivation" for "Sudden Awakening". Please turn the Right-Side-Up of the Noble eightfold Path driven by Right Understanding and Right Motivation from the Prajna division to weed out professional scam artists from Buddhist Sangha.
[2.1] A darkness cannot see another darkness As-It-Is
Let's glance through following current Issues before using mathematics and logic to prove this statement:
- Buddhists have talked about "Right Mindfulness"[D12] and "Oneness / Emptiness"[D32], [D25] at the level of 'within-the-box' of conditioned in 'Binding Word', 'Clinging Thought', and general 'Grasper / Grasped' of their collective darkness in duality of conflicts to basically turn scientific facts which are "Lights" in the "Oneness / Thing-As-It-Is without Conflict" discovered by Gotama upside down. There is no connection in their "Mindfulness" and "Verifiable Emptiness / Oneness" as actually recorded from Gotama[D28], [D29]. Most monks and nuns in the past 2500+ years do not recognize the foundation of Right Mindfulness is the 'Oneness / Thing-As-It-Is without Conflict', coming from 'Verifiable Emptiness' and 'Right Inner Peace'[D13], putting their efforts in shining the 'leaf of one's Mask' (Doing) without nourishing the root (Being). When there is no sap flowing from the root, the leaf (manifestation) of Mindfulness is 'dying' or a 'fake'. Like 'Love', a thought and/or description of 'Emptiness' is not 'Empty'. But there is the 'Love' and 'Emptiness' flowing from the source of 'Being' in actual living, observable and cultivable. 'Emptiness' is manifested in all signed posts - Table 1.1 - inspired by HuiNeng (Beyond-Thought, No-Mark, Detachment-Born, Samadhi-Prajna) and AwakeningBudh Movement (ComPassion, Detachment-Born, HonNhien, Prajna).
- The missing Link is the Direct Access to the Right Inner Peace (Samma-Samadhi)[D10] to activate the 'sense purification[D26]' out of tainted / outdated marks and naturally manifest Right Mindfulness[D12] in daily activities, seeing 'Thing As It Is' for a Right Effort / Action. That Right Inner Peace has different depths, recorded in Buddhist Texts as nine observable attributes of Knowable Samadhi. Beyond the Purity state, one can 'Transcend Inner Peace'[D29], going beyond thought (no thought) in Expanding Space, Expanding Consciousness, and Unity to directly experience the 'Essence of the Right Effort / Living' which deeply registers itself in one's storehouse Consciousness to keep one on the Right Track of Consciousness Evolution. One's Noble Inner Circle and circles of inner circles may significantly help this Noble Aspiration coming from actual experience, not a utopia of Bodhisattva or Bodhicitta at conditioned thought in thousands years of Buddhist Sangha. This is like the 'actuality of Emptiness' versus 'meditation on Emptiness' which is only a game at conditioned thinking[R14], [R14.1].
- Even 'the truth of the cessation of dukkha' - the third Truth - is also at the assertion of thought by most members of Buddhist Sangha, not beyond thought outside the thinking box into the Actuality of Living as recorded from Gotama[D42]. Even worse, the third Truth is totally corrupted by a world claimed enlighten monk that the sangha in cleaning its mess needs to tidy up. A thought of 'cessation', 'emptiness', etc, is 'not cessation', 'not empty'. The third Truth in the entire history of Buddhist Sangha up to 2017 does not have logical explanation, either at theoretical or empirically verifiable level. Its mechanism will be theoretically and empirically proven in 'Sudden Awaken then Awakening' at the 'Intensity of Attention' and delivered by KhaiPhong for all dedicated seekers. When the system was expanded to turn Dukkha into an Actuality of Relative Existence 'viparinama-dukkha and sankhara-dukkha' (of Changed and Conditioned), the solution from Buddhist Sangha to dukkha either idealized into an imaginary Nirvana and Parinirvana with the "How" in total darkness of duality[D23], [D24]. The "Cessation of 'Suffering' Dukkha" discovered by Gotama[D42] has been completely ignored. Assuming assertion of Gotama in the cessation of Dukkha is "right", the 'How' from current 'Dukkha' to this momentary 'Nirvana' is explorable, Then What? for the practical relationship between Dukkha and momentary Nirvana in Actual Living / Effort.
This Actual living is within a conditioned set of Human Realm. That is why in the above issues, a conditioned (darkness) cannot reach something outside its rigid self container such as "Right Mindfulness / Chánh niệm"[D12] that all Buddhist monks and nuns blah blah blah for so long. Same thing is applied to beyond-thought "Oneness / Thing-As-It-Is without Conflict"[D32], "Love"[R16] (that catholic priests idealized it as an exclusive domain of their "Redeemer" so they can make a living as his gatekeepers), "Emptiness"[D25], "Right Inner Peace"[D13], "Cessation of Dukkha / Nirvana"[D42]. Using set theory to draw a circle embracing both the observer and the observed in Figure 2, patch C represents "something outside its rigid self container". The 'Then What' even after momentary Nirvana logically shows not only the practicality of Gotama momentary Nirvana or 'inspired by HuiNeng' Unmoving Sunyata but also the momentary state of Prajna-Paramita described in the Heart Sutra[R2]: 'in Sunyata there is not ... dukkha-sammudaya-nirodha-marga', just Thing As It Is in actual Living which is our suggested Inner Quest (zen Koan if you do not have any) using the system of Fourfold Truth to personally verify it.
All Buddhists need to "Personally Testify" this "Koan" which is the focused concrete beneficial targets discovered by Gotama, using his "Noble eightfold Path as the model driving toward the four Seals of the Dharma in all activities and relationships: Dukkha / Impermanence / Not-Self / Nirvana. "Koan" is one of many techniques to generate required "Intensity of Attention" to be beyond conditioned - especially Thought - at conflicting duality level. Different from other Zen Koans designed to "break your habit of Thinking" at conditioned level without offering any practical and scientific process since the claimed masters do not have sufficient depths to the point of teachable and reproducible trail they have actually passed, this "Koan" (1) uses modern technique to rationally show you "A darkness (conditioned) cannot clearly see another darkness" As-It-Is and required strategic position to push the focused event toward a right direction for one and the environment, (2) raises your "Faith" in Gotama's discoveries, "putting fire on his Noble eightfold Path" as you put fire on gold to make sure that it is "real gold", (3) uses your real "Pain / Dukkha" to actually solve the real issue in daily activities which naturally generate the required "Intensity of Attention" in Making Life Easier and Happier, (4) opens "Your Mind" to acquire other discovered technologies such as the Sound technology from Shurangama[D31] to speed up the process of dissolving all manifestations in "Verifiable Emptiness" for "reborn / rejuvenation" from "No Mind Enclosure" as his description in Cula-Sunnata Sutta[D25] or in the Heart Sutra[R2], then "Your Heart" to Share your actual experience on the trail so others can value-add to make the discovered trail Easier and Happier for others exactly as what Gotama did in 45+ years to leave something beneficial for Humanity.
Let's be concrete from what Buddhists call "darkness" or from "the known" at any event and the practicality of something "Beyond" for a breakthrough or sustainable solution. The "term darkness" indicates something "conditioned / sankhara-dukkha" in "Relative Truth" to point to some lasting Value in "Ultimate (Wider) Truth" since all conditioned are changing (viparinama-dukkha) according to modern second law of thermodynamics. Based on six possible outcomes from any event we see modern approach already incorporates as its based knowledge (epistemic objectives) the crossbreed of Chinese practicality in "Effortless Action / Wei-Wu-Wei" with "Beyond the Known" (detailed in the next Scientific Fourfold Truth) in specialized fields demonstrated and deliverable as an Art by "Elites" who must have some accumulated wiring between the right and left brains.
What needed are:
- Revitalization of the Wise Attention - Yoniso Sutta[D27] - also known as “wise reflection, reasoned attention, methodical consideration, directing the attention to the roots of things” using proven scientific approach of effective treatments[R6.3] in conscious living at both mental and physical levels, riding on both the [ Known / Epistemic Objectives ] and something Beyond in cultivable Mindfulness and Prajna with measurable Signed Posts to make happened Gotama's advice to Ajita's Questions[D21]: "whatever streams (of karmic forces), it is Mindfulness that obstructs and restricts them, and by Prajna, they are dissolved" . The conscious living augmented by PrajnaTools of Artificial Intelligence at both discovered general patterns from the mass and specialized persona strength/weakness will effortlessly weed out criminals[R18.3] and professional scam artists[R18.4] from all isms where organized religions are parts. Here is a simple observable case study to show the difference between the natural "Effortless Action / Wei-Wu-Wei" and Buddhist concentration called "Mindfulness" in daily activities: the "effortless" is deepening the "No Conflict" in natural Right Inner Peace (Samma-Samadhi) while the concentration must overcome both inner conflict and outer conflict. The writer has a Muslim friend who is a Chief Financial Officer of a very large Not-For-Profit (NFP) organization of the city to help old and needy people. Observing his natural "Intensity of Attention / focused energy" in mundane activities from our health club, we engage in a casual conversation. He said his non-paid active participation in the NFP organization may come from the pains of the weak and old that he can feels, bullied and exploited by others. He and his wife are very busy - over 80 years of ages but always going beyond the responsibilities of volunteers - to help those less fortunate than them. We talk about his effortlessly focused energy compared by most people. He recognizes it - including seeing the faked cool-calm-collective of claimed religious people - but does not know why. We talk about the Dependent Nature of conditioned existence. The writer asks him - and all those having observable unique comparative advantages - discover underlying natural laws in reversed engineering to be part of the conscious living community.
- Making known proven Right Effort, possible solutions of all dominant binding and clinging forces in Gotama's advice to Ajita's Questions[D21], and Only in Present Living one can change Quality of the Consciousness according to natural law of whatever light will float up[D30] in one's Continuity of the Consciousness. Playing a very small part in the new Era, we see unique comparative advantages of involved Elites in all fields of modern living together with their tremendous dominant Issues[R20.3], [R20.4] to be exploited by criminals[R18.3] and professional scam artists[R18.4], or falling into a crack due to not knowing the proven underlying natural laws[R17], [R17.1]. If you are one these Elites we ask you being a part of the new Era of Conscious Living of what most important to you where we can be a part that may last beyond your life time.
- Full integration between proven Artificial Intelligence and lasting Value of the values in cultivable Normative Intelligence discovered by dedicated explorers as precious gifts to humanity, sabotaged by criminals and professional scam artists to perpetuate their exploitation and masters-slaves relationships against the human nature, known as Latin Humanitas (biology, compassion, wisdom) leading to human rights to enable all worthy activities and relationships coming from people, by people, and for people.
By supplying the foundation to activate the hidden qualities of Right Inner Peace (Samma-Samadhi) and Prajna - enabling most people accessible to the plane of [ Prajna / Wisdom / Conscience ] perpendicular to the duality plane of focused event - to see Thing-As-It-Is and one's strategic position, we facilitate the process of knowing more about oneself to change one and the environment toward What Count. The Sound technology from Shurangama[D31] will be properly implemented at the Right Time that we expect 70,000,000 to 500,000,000 people or 1% to 7% human population will actually know the "Oneness / Non-Duality" at different depths, weeding out professional scam artists blah blah blah for so long in organized religions and meditations. The observable outcomes for you to share your exploration are:
- The Right Inner Peace[D13] from your fire to put on the Noble Path whose fragrances to outer manifestations of Right Speech, Rich Action and Right Livelihood are visible as [ Kindness (mettā - tâm từ), Compasion (karuṇā - tâm bi), Joy (muditā - tâm hỷ, Detachment (upekkhā - tâm xả) ] of the four Boundless Qualities of the Mind for the Happiness of One and the Whole, then
- 'Transcend Inner Peace'[D25] for Direct Perception of 'the Essence of the Right Living / Effort' in transcending the Observer (Gotama's Not-Self), actually knowing the core doctrine of his discoveries far beyond the blah blah blah of "not-self" at thought level in 2500+ years of Buddhist Sangha up to 2017, then
- 'Beyond via Prajna-Paramita' deep in the invisible Sunyata as described by the Heart Sutra[R2] toward unmoving Sunyata or momentary Nirvana as described by Gotama[D42].
The Share of your experiences from "Right Inner Peace / Samma Samadhi" together with your right condition and background for the manifestation of the experience - being part of the community implementations of Gotama's Noble eightfold Path - helps many (1) knowing the meaning of Right Understanding and Right Motivation of major events such as a Growing Child, Right Effort in growing up, Marriage, Parenting, etc, (2) identifying observable attributes of Right Inner Peace to be statistically tested, augmented and professionally certified in PrajnaLand where right conditions are there for specialized targets. They are different from the expositions of many hallucinated monks to effortlessly wipe out professional scam artists who are consciously or unconsciously saboteurs of Gotama's discoveries.
This attribute in the intensity of Purification of the senses[D26] to something Beyond is partially mentioned in Buddhist Saddharma-pundarika[D44.1] and Prajna-Paramita[D44] which human - except few exceptional members - may have a glimpse for the next level of Consciousness Evolution. The scientific facts at both theoretical and empirical verifications are required to shed lights on pieces of truth and their subtle sabotages at Word and Thought, employed by the Sutra with subtle hidden agenda of master-slave relationships to sabotage Gotama's precious gifts to humanity. We will use scientific process to prove this esoteric sabotage and invite you to be a part. For your benefit in activation the Buddha Nature independent thinking, please look at how contributions of Jesus have been rewritten by Roman Catholics and Islam, or glance through the World Plan of One Bank, One Army, One Government, and One Religion from Illuminati New World Order.
We can strengthen the logical proof of the statement via combining both mathematics and Buddhist Consciousness-Only under what known as Dharmapala-XuanZang "Consciousness of the consciousness"[D19.3] theory plus deeper exploration via modern science as briefly touched below. The cited paper concluded that Buddhism implies dualism using the picture of a well-known Samatha-Vipassana claimed meditation master to demonstrate the binding / clinging duality of "Self" and theoretical "Not-Self" in the entire history of Buddhist Sangha up to 2017 with unreconcilable "Chasm" between two most significant contributions of dedicated explorers Nagarjuna Madhyamaka and Asanga Consciousness-Only from those (monks and scholars) unable to enter the "Gateway-to-Oneness / Thing-As-It-Is without Conflict". They are not qualified by Gotama as having Mindfulness[D28] due to the lack of "Detachment-Born / Vô Trụ" and the actual experience in entering the Gateway-to-Oneness, reaching the Equanimity to naturally have the binding Word / Image dissolved in its level of Verifiable Emptiness. All qualified "Budh Counselor" must be able to iron out this "Chasm" for deeper exploration in the Science of the Consciousness as detailed in "Taming The Ox". We invite you being a part to deepen and enable Gotama's precious gifts to humanity sustainable that your contributions may last beyond your life time.
With or without Buddhist [ consciousness-only / consciousness of the consciousness[D19.3] ] to be exposed next, we have sufficient technologies via statistical and mathematical optimisations, Distributed Graph and Artificial Intelligence to implement and accumulate related nodes of major events such as a Growing Child, Right Effort in growing up, Marriage, Parenting, etc, - lumped together as community implementations of Right Understanding and Right Motivation - using both the Wise Attention[D27] ] (the internal condition for Gotama's eightfold path) and "Prajna Dialectic" in "Taming The Ox". The ecosystem is MuOmSunyata, ready for the Fourth Industrial Revolution where Normative Intelligence from "Prajna Dialectic" directs Artificial Intelligence which helps to make any Breakthrough such as identified Signed Posts into epistemic objectives.
In this consciousness-only model, the above statement is proven at different layers of established / stable consciousness. The Issue comes from completely ignoring the potentiality in Consciousness of the consciousness, commonly known as the sixth and seven senses or Budh Mind which is "cultivable" based on the "state" and "stock" of your Prajna. There are four types of consciousness[D19.3] - page 7: (1) the first type of consciousness - the observed-part, (2) the second one - sense organ-consciousness which can only experience the first one, i.e. the observed-consciousness, (3) the third one - the self-consciousness which can experience the second one, that is sense-organ (including mind of the sixth sense) consciousness and also experiencing (4) the fourth one - the Consciousness of self-consciousness. that is, the consciousness that reflects self-consciousness. The fourth one, the consciousness of self-consciousness, can only experience the third one, self-consciousness, but has no relation to the second one.
The model argues that the four parts can be understood as three, because the fourth one, the consciousness of self-consciousness is included in the third part already. But then it can be understood as two parts, because the last three parts constitute one experiencing part of consciousness, that is the subject (the Observer), and the other one is just the object (the Observed). Finally, this can be understood as one single unit because all types of consciousness have the same nature: everything is mind or consciousness-only. This definition is consistent with modern definition of "Consciousness" - the ground of all being, the nature of all things vibrating at the fundamental level. Under KhaiPhong, the "Observed" is not an object-consciousness but an aggregate consciousness of the "Issue" such as an issue in national security, a trade negotiation, a diplomatic maneuver, an organization strategy, a strategic plan, a career choice, a marriage proposal, etc. The Observer is not only one individual but an aggregate such as family, business, organization, community, region, country. Interactions between "Observer and the Observed" are dynamics and there is the state of Observation where both the Observer and the Observed are momentarily changed. Here you see the role and importance of the "sixth and seventh senses" or Budh Mind which can be significantly augmented by modern Artificial Intelligence to make Life Easier and Happier, capable to get the "Pulse" and optimal "Solution" of difficult and complex Issue.
This theoretical model needs more researches, but it does consistent with Gotama experience and our explorations up to the present time with innumerable application at both micro and macro levels just like economics where the invisible / helping hand (working of underlying natural laws to be discovered) shapes its outcome. Both modern Science and the Science of Consciousness in their continuous discoveries can help to shape the outcome more closely to the efficiency of the Nature according to Natural Laws. Nevertheless, the model does present some tentative conclusions for significant practical applications.
- The sense consciousness - including mind - can only experience the observed (object) consciousness or "Thing As it Is". In most cases this sense consciousness is mixed with the third type of self-consciousness via tainted senses driven by "Imaginary Nature" to turn "Actuality" into "Reality" as illustrated in Figure 1. Only when the self is utterly Silence, then[D42]
Herein, Bahiya, In the seen will be merely what is seen; in the heard will be merely what is heard; ... Just this is the end of suffering.
Này Bàhiya, Trong cái thấy sẽ chỉ là cái thấy. Trong cái nghe, sẽ chỉ là cái nghe... Như vậy là đoạn tận khổ đau.
Since a conditioned cannot see other conditioned As-It-Is, and all senses (eye-ear-nose-tongue-body-mind) are conditioned at birth in one's evolutiuon from Consciousness to Form, the only way to be outside the box is an evolution from "Form back to Consciousness" by-passing all within-the-box conditioned. This is within the ability of the Buddha Nature innate in each person. Discovering natural laws for heavy lifting kick-starts the Science and Economics of KhaiPhong.
- The self-consciousness can experience the sense consciousness and the fourth type, the Consciousness of the self-consciousness. Related to Figure 2, the patch C is a part of outside-the-box self-consciousness whose perspective (area) has different depths. The stable self-consciousness part of patch C can be considered as one's Instinct or the aggregate knowledge-base issue simulation which are based on known patterns, plus unique "Alertness" and "Awareness" having stable wiring between left-brain and right-brain of its members.
- The "Consciousness of the consciousness" is cultivable to change the quality of one's consciousness and make it persistent in one's Continuity of the Consciousness. So does that of the aggregate in its specialized domain from its accumulated knowledge base. At any present moment, besides the stable conditioned parts of Instinct and Brain Intelligence, there is a wider perspective of ComPassion from the Heart for 'the Right Thing to do' from Prajna (Wisdom) which embraces relevant involved parties in the Totality of Existence to inject the 'Being' into the 'Doing'. The sense of this wider perspective requires "No Mind Enclosure" as pointed out in the Heart Sutra[R2] for deeper cultivation of ComPassion and Prajna in sensing the "Pulse" of the matter one has attention upon.
- That deeper cultivation is the essence of PrajnaTIP in Kindness where the Kindness and Compassion provides optimum conditions for Mindfulness that one can expand one's Consciousness of the consciousness to Higher levels in activities. The deeper cultivation is possible and verifiable as recorded from Gotama[D29], [D42]. Therefore, Kindness and Compassion are not only beneficial in Action-Reaction / Likes-attract-Likes, in Making Life Easier and Happier for One and the Intelligent Community as proven by Trần Hưng Đạo[R7], [R7.4], [R7.5] but also an optimum condition in enhancing one's Quality of the Consciousness on the direction most relevant to one's Present Moment.
The discoveries and verifiable implementations of possible solutions for identifiable Issue of normative existence Dukkha according to the nature of things in "Evolution from Consciousness to Form and from Form back to Consciousness" have not been - up to 2017 - fully explained and integrated. Following eight points are observable facts waiting from an Engineering Roadmap to properly implement Gotama's signed posts from his well-known "Cula-suññata Sutta: The Lesser Discourse on Emptiness"[D25] ignored by Buddhist Sangha in the past 2500+ years. The first three points - covering Theravada, Mahayana, and Gotama's Mindfulness / Prajna - are evolution from Consciousness to Form where duality and time lapse are dominant. HuiNeng Samadhi / Prajna is rated at the border line between Consciousness to Form and from Form back to Consciousness since it is instantaneous having no significant time lapse. The last four signed posts - Gotama's Right Understanding and Right Motivation, Bodhidharma's Thing-As-It-Is Dukkha, Teleportation and Visible Consciousness - require deeper states of mind from Form back to Consciousness to show the practicality of the invisible Emptiness / Sunyata.
Challenging and Implementation of these signed posts - as detailed in Taming The Ox - will (1) effortlessly wipe out professional scam artists selling what they do not know nor have in sabotaging Gotama's discoveries to perpetuate their masters-slaves relationships, (2) widely open entrances into innumerable contributions applicable to one's pattern which may be useful and practical to many others along the same pattern/trail in Making Life Easier and Happier. Here are the discovered signed posts to be contributed by humanity as more and more explorations are scientifically opened:
- Theravada Abhidhamma: a detailed scholastic reworking of Sutras to the maximum logical extends using human structural forms of the mind. Since it is conditioned within the senses and their duality, there is a tendency of the "Blinds touching Elephants" without any "freshness / unconditioned" personally known by Krishnamurti in his "Intensity of Attention". Typical example is in "the Path of Purification / Visuddhimagga"[D33].
Verifiable signed posts were already established by Gotama in his "Cula-suññata Sutta: The Lesser Discourse on Emptiness" (MN 121)[D25] using the "Wilderness" environment and "Earth" as a starting "Point / Form" to "Purity" moving toward "An Awareness of Nothingness" then "Unmoving Sunyata / Momentary Nirvana". He (1) first described the "optimum" conditions - the singleness based on the perception of wilderness - moving from "relative truth / the village and community of monks" to "ultimate (wider) truth / Outside-the-Box in different depths of Right Inner Peace" with his actual experience on the "trail"; (2) since all manifestations are in relative truth such as "The Quarrel At Kosambi"[D43], he "should" describe his experience from that "Outside-the-Box / Ultimate (Wider) Truth" back to "relative truth of outer conflicts - inner conflicts" as described by Bodhidharma[D32.1], together with observable cracks and possible hazards - not yet exposed by both Gotama and Bodhidharma - to be watched out.
That is what Taming The Ox is all about where all qualified Budh Counselors must stand on their own feet in their dedicated professions and lives. The first requirement is the "necessary condition" to Open one's knots of outdated Marks such as excessive sex drive, Fear, Phobia and Expanding one's Potentiality in Higher Consciousness. The second requirement is the "sufficient condition" for sustainable Conscious Living while testing one and the aggregate the Essence of the Right Effort in What Count[R23], relevant and applicable to present living of 2017 onward.
Let's use these measurable hard facts to challenge all cultivation processes of claimed meditation masters and Buddhist teachers - whether they are the "Blinds touching Elephant / Professional scam artists" selling what they do not know nor have - as we scientifically challenge in Taming The Ox to detect the depth of Dissolving the contents. Typical examples are Thich Nhat Hanh, Minh Đức Triều Tâm Ảnh using "breath" - in their "formal meditation postures" similar to "earth" used by Gotama right in the "environment of Village and community of monks" - as starting form of their meditations, and an internationally well-known Samatha-Vipassana meditation master Pa-Auk Tawya Sayadaw[D19.3].
We publicly state and open the door for them to prove otherwise that they have not passed the "gateway-to-oneness" before reaching the Equanimity qualified by Gotama as minimum level of his Mindfulness[D28] in Ajita's Questions[D21]. Passing the Equanimity Mindfulness level, one then reaches the Purity and deeper states of Right Inner Peace (Samma-Samadhi) as actually described by Gotama the meaning in "dwelling of emptiness" asked by Ananda and reaffirmed by Gotama with his detailed description from Equanimity to Purity and Beyond.
"The Path of Purification"[D33]described many meditation subjects, besides "earth". It is the challenge for all Buddhist monks and nuns to take one subject such as "earth / breath" and environment such as "wilderness / your meditation postures" as the case of Gotama / your 2500+ years of meditations in the affirmation of his / your actual meaning in "dwelling of emptiness" to augment and value-add Gotama's descriptions in "The Lesser Discourse on Emptiness" (MN 121)[D25]. For example, using the "brown color" of the monk's robe, a student knowing nothing about Buddhism and/or meditation described to this writer in 1978 how she used the color - similar to "earth" used by Gotama - to cool the mind for a good sleep since the teen ages (50 years ago from 2015) to instantly enter "Infinite Space, Infinite Consciousness, and Nothingness" exactly as described by Gotama using "earth" in the environment of village and community of monks. This demonstrates the powers and applications of "Emptiness" irrespective of environment, yet optimal conditions do count for individual patterns. We specifically challenge the mentioned claimed meditation masters and all claimed Buddhist teachers to demonstrate they are qualified by Gotama as Budh Counselors worthy of being a member in his Buddhist Sangha.
Once you actually have experience - either now due to your past cultivation or waiting for the PrajnaTIP in Sound / Light using HonNhien and the Law of Nature for heavy lifting - as described in "The Lesser Discourse on Emptiness" (MN 121)[D25] by Gotama you will personally verify for yourself that 2500+ years of meditations in Buddhist Theravada, typically described in "The Path of Purification" is turning upside down Gotama's dwelling in Emptiness since "concentration" cannot lead to transcending the self and "is not Gotama's Samma Samadhi". It is opposite to the "Detachment-Born" right from the first Gotama's Absorption state[D28]. At the right time we will prove that the author of "The Path of Purification"[D33] knows nothing about Gotama's 7th state of "Nothingness" which is taken to the front line by Buddhist Heart Sutra as the core of Buddhist Oneness for rejuvenation and reborn of all dualities. It was stated in Vajracchedika Prajnaparamita Sutra from Gotama / Subhuti dialogue[R7]: "Do not attach to anything ( detachment-born in all activities ) then that "Wonderful / Fresh / HonNhien" Mind will appear / Ưng vô sở trụ nhi sinh kỳ tâm / Chỉ nên phát tâm trong tinh thần vô trụ / 應無所住而生其心". HuiNeng immediately recognized that innate "Wonderful Mind" in every person and warned 1000+ years ago the danger of "Mindfulness of Breathing"[D23] as instructed by Buddhist Sangha. Its conclusion: 'Actually it means mindfulness established on an object all the time with each in and out breath' is the main culprit of the defect to render the Buddhist Dharma stagnant pointed out by HuiNeng thousands years ago that no one up to 2017 is able to revitalize its right-side-up.
In KhaiPhong, we take this challenge to the next level when the PrajnaTIP in Sound from Shurangama Sutra[D31] is introduced where we expect 1% to 7% human population will have actual experience in all appropriate environments - such as "Wilderness" known by Gotama or "Expanding Space" appropriate to Vietnameses in the Sounthern tip introduced by the Buddhist Teacher (Phật Thầy) at Tây An[D19] - to experience exactly as what described by Gotama in his "Lesser Discourse on Emptiness"[D25]. We call the appropriate environment PrajnaLand (the land appropriate for cultivating Prajna) - having required supports and personally taking care of by qualified Budh Counselors - which covers all human activities, ranging from home, schools, working places, communities, hotels, entertainments, leisure centres, tourist attractions, wilderness, etc.
In this "Dwelling of the Emptiness" one will know natural "Transcendental Relaxation" without Drug, personally experience the "Natural Purification" dreamed but untouchable by most Buddhist monks and nuns selling what they do not know nor have in "meditation on emptiness" at duality / rational levels of the darkness. This transcendental relaxation is called by Krishnamurti the "Freshness / Unconditioned". That is what this writer told the friend in 1978 that her experience is unreacheable by all claimed Buddhist meditation masters he knew. She was also the one who - without reading any Buddhist text - told the writer that Thich Nhat Hanh mindfulness of breathing is a retarded process when we formed the Prajna Pagoda in Calgary Canada at the end of 1978.
- Mahayana gradual cultivation: extending Abhidhamma to include other factors of possible influencing the quality of the mind such as aspiration in Bodhicitta and Bodhisattva, energy chakras, innier circle of spiritual beings, etc. Its tools are still dominant in duality, relying on claimed masters for the normative Right. Typical examples are Shantideva Bodhisattvacaryāvatāra and other systems of Tibetan gradual training. It is still dominant in duality with a rational effort to understand "Emptiness" at duality level of Relative Truth and Ultimate (Wider) Truth and/or "first dissolve all appearances and then meditate on emptiness, or first meditate on emptiness and then dissolve all appearances of the objects"[R14.1]. There is still No Transcendental states toward Nothingness and Unmoving Sunyata / Momentary Nirvana. Similar to Theravada Abhidhamma, there is a tendency of the "Blinds touching Elephants" without any freshness from outside-the-box.
Typical cases are the Dalai Lama XIV, Gyalwang Drukpa XII, the reincarnation of the founder of Khyentse lineage (Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche)[R13], and Chögyam Trungpa[R15], Pure Land theorist Chin Kung (Tịnh Không)[R5.4] , Seung Sahn that they too have not passed the "Gateway-to-Oneness" qualified by Gotama as the minimum level of his "Mindfulness". One advanced student in our group knowing "Insight into the Emptiness" - when forced to the situation to dissolve latent sexual drive since the worthy relationships were not there - tried all duality techniques described by Shantideva and others. It was in vain. He has had some success only with transcendental techniques where evolution from Form to Consciousness is absolutely required.
This case study affirms the situation of a darkness (conditioned / tainted senses) cannot see other darkness As-It-Is. It needs a Light - Prajna - to effortlessly dispel the darkness. When PrajnaTIP in Sound (and Light) is introduced, we expect - using current Cloud Technology as a spreading vehicle - most will be able to personally verify Gotama's description of his "dwelling of emptiness - Gotama Lesser Discourse on Emptiness" (MN 121)[D25], knowing the fallacy of the Blinds touching Elephant" of the Dalai Lama XIV[R14.1] who is a typical Buddhist monk in 2500+ years of Buddhist Sangha. While waiting for the right time and proper conditions, please use your logical intelligence to contrast Gotama descriptions in affirming his actual experience in Emptiness where Dissolution and Emptiness is One Process, not in the duality of one first then the other as understood by the entire Buddhist Sangha.
- Gotama Mindfulness / Prajna: documented in Ajita's Questions[D21]. Mindfulness is qualified by Gotama at the minimum state of passing "Detachment-Born" and "Gateway-to-Oneness"[D28], knowing the dissolution / emptying the contents in transcendental states to see Thing-As-It-Is for proper management of one's realities. Very few monks can actually know this transcendental state. Deeper than Mindfulness, it is the stock of Prajna to dissolve the outdated mark as in the case of the above student, trying to dissolve the outdated mark of sexual drive. There is still time lapse in cultivable state and stock of Prajna in Gotama's advice.
This brings us to all Buddhist explanations of the Heart Sutra[R2] - 100% of the "Blinds touching Imaginary Elephant" - in their confused word "Atakkàvacara / Chân Như" in facing the "Koan" using Gotama's discoveries in his Fourfold Truth as the testing ground to "Personally Verify" the four seals in all daily activities: Dukkha - Impermanence - Not-Self - Nirvana, then actually know face-to-face the Sunyata Nothingness "in Sunyata there is not ... dukkha-sammudaya-nirodha-marga / Cho nên, trong Sunyata ... không khổ tập diệt đạo" which is the seventh stage "Nothingness" of Gotama "Right Inner Peace / Samma-Samadhi"[D29]. The rejuvenation / reborn is possible in this Emptiness. Same thing happened to the entire history of Buddhist Sangha from all sects and cultures that most are stuck at the "Blinds touching Elephant" in their own fallacies at conditioned thoughts and doctrines. Since the description is not the described and if you can actually experience "Atakkàvacara / Chân Như" you should be able to describe your state of mind from relative truth in dissolving the content in this new state, then what happens to your quality of mind after you know "Atakkàvacara / Chân Như". Here is Gotama's verifiable process in moving from Relative Truth to Ultimate (Wider) Truth[D25], [D28], [D29] toward the Sunyata / Oneness to personally verify Gotama's third Noble Truth[D19.2], the Truth he called the "End of Dukkha"[D42]. We see the role of Science to effortlessly wipe out criminals and professional scam artists cheating others for unworthy living.
- HuiNeng Samadhi / Sixth Sense: Samadhi - Inner Peace - is the Quintessence of Prajna [for Right Understanding], while Prajna is the activity of Samadhi [for Right Motivation]. This state becomes one's embedded quality of the consciousness once Gotama's Mindfulness / Prajna is reasonably stable. This commonly known as the instinct / sixth sense when you naturally sense something. It is known by many advanced people, mostly in the position of leaderships. Many - especially in an indoctrinated environment of Obeying - have this innate ability but do not have sufficient confidence in their instinct. It is time to listen to our inner voice / conscience / prajna where modern normative and positive tools can help to detect the precious innate quality, Making Life Easier and Happier. If the time is right, a living student in our group can actually deliver HuiNeng Samadhi-Prajna to many to further enforce the practicality of consciousness technologies[R6.4].
- Gotama Right Understanding and Right Motivation in complex issues such as (1) national and international problems, (2) large scale social and economic strategies, (3) individual and organization strategic move, etc. The ability to see dominant pattern of a complex issue and strategic point to change its direction is called the Seventh Sense, deepen by HuiNeng Samadhi-Prajna for Right Understanding and Right Motivation towards What Count[R23]. It was proven by Vạn Hạnh's ability to get the "Pulse[R7.5]" of complex military and diplomatic national securities[R7.1].
This shows the practicality of "Insight into the Emptiness" cultivable in the evolution of "Form to Consciousness". Since all manifestations are "Dependent Nature and Conditioned", those having comparative advantages in the Arts - of all kinds such as politics, diplomacies, military, educations, businesses, living, entertainments, etc - can trace out what conditions and passing trails to make them standing out of the crowd. Sharing these TIPs can open a "new vista" of their comparative advantages while helping others either already on the trail and/or planning to enter riding on the master experience to turn the Art into a Science that may be sustainable beyond one's life time.
The application has been used thousands years ago, commonly known as "Oracle", riding on specialized ability of some fragmented dedicated explorers. It is fragmented - since due to the Dependent Nature of existence - the seventh sense capable to see the dominant pattern of the "Issue / Observed" is not easy to come in one's evolution from Form to Consciousness. Yet having that "comparative advantage" one still do not see the role of the discovery in the totality of existence. It was exploited in the past for many mundane targets and/or enforcing the ruling power in master-slave relationships unless one has the quality of Vạn Hạnh[R7.1]. The difference now is to turn useful and practical Arts - having available additional tools of Artificial Intelligence (AI) - into Science by observing and testing their underlying natural laws, integrating both normative and positive values toward What Count coming from people, by people, and for people in one's Right Effort for the meaning of one's Existence. Thanks to AI and Big-Data, accumulated wisdom in any matter specialized by the organization is not lost.
Recent observable outcomes of degenerated esoteric forces - commonly known as the Illuminati and New World Order - show the importance of Right Effort and relevant of one's Inner Circle and circle of inner circles to prevent one from accidental cracks driven by Greed and Ignorance and/or provide whatever necessary help to quickly recover from past mistakes. The outcome was known in "Paul the Octopus" that we esoterically knew this entity from the long past and its ability. We sensed its reincarnation and look for the right time to bring together old acquanted resources similar to what Trần Quốc Tuấn did with his family's collected Generals, ready for an actionable and challenging period. Only under democratic process - having the majority know more about themselves and Human Right - the age of enlightenment is sustainable to avoid past mistakes in the divine right of master-slaves.
The whole history of Buddhist Sangha - up to 2017 - missed the practicality of Gotama's "Right Understanding and Right Motivation - the Prajna division of his Noble eightfold Path due to its fallacy in the "destruction of ignorance and consciousness" which is unnatural and impossible since consciousness cannot be destroyed and a darkness of ignorance cannot see and destroy another darkness. Their darkness of [ Ethical Code > Concentration > Prajna - Giới > Định > Tuệ ] turns Gotama Samadhi into within-the-box Concentration and Prajna into an outcome of their darkness. That is the hard fact about voluminous treatises and cultivations from both Theravada and Mahayana, digging their own graves at duality incapable to touch the Oneness of the "Blind touching Elephant" proven in a scientific paper "Buddhism implies dualism"[D19.3]
- Bodhidharma Thing-As-It-Is Dukkha: a treatise on the Ceasing of Notions[D32.1] discovered in Tun-Huang cave to reveal the Source of Oneness, the Common Denominator of all manifestations facing directly to Thing-As-It-Is (Actuality). From this "Oneness" - within the reach of one's innate Buddha Nature - one can (1) Know the unchanged unborn in the changing (viparinama-dukkha) and conditioned (sankhara-dukkha) existence, (2) See the optimal non-conflicting solution out of a complicated issue and its strategic position to be in, (3) Create the Right conditions and sense the Right Time and Place for an Effortless Action with maximum results toward the Right Direction, (4) Nullify adverse effects. Once the action is complete, there is No-Mark [ Beyond-Thought - Vô Tướng, No-Mark - Vô Vết, Detachment-Born - Vô Trụ, Samadhi-Prajna - Định Tuệ ]. The recorded encounter between Bodhidharma and Emperor Wu of Liang affirms the power and practicality of "Thing-As-It-Is Dukkha" and the actual Value of existence in one's continuity of the consciousness where Kindness and Compassion are the foundation for a wider view of existence and that one's Right Effort is naturally exciting with opportunities in "Doing Good".
- Teleportation: an additional technology using "generated wormhole", cultivable and trainable to avoid possible conflict in "encountering someone (esoteric force) intent on killing oneself"[D32.1] when the right time and right place is not there. The technology is known as "Verifiable Process from PrajnaTIP in Kindness", the best optimal conditions for Mindfulness and Samadhi-Prajna training in evolution from Form to Consciousness, outside the box of duality yearned by all organized religions only at theoretical level.
The real possibility of esoteric harming was well documented in Internet about the demonic works done by Illuminati and NWO against those considered road-blocks to their targets[R20.3], [R20.4]. Thanks to this technology - actually known by some living students in our group - many unnecessary sufferings have been avoided to carry the esoteric battle while many others have done tremendous jobs to stop their plots.
This technology must be built upon the accumulated state and stocks of Prajna coming from Transcendental Consciousness, Cosmic Consciousness, and Unity[R7.5] in one's evolution from Form back to Consciousness, by-passing the dualities of tainted senses and persistent outdated marks. Once it is known by many due to the presence of qualified Budh Counselors and available facilities of PrajnaLand, many will naturally be exciting to the opportunities of Doing Good in "Sharing Happiness - Mitigating Sufferings" according to wider view of one's continuity of the consciousness.
- Visible Consciousness: different from human radio technology and actually demonstrated by ET commonly known as spacecrafts and UFO (Unidentified Flying Objects)[R20], [R20.4]. Part of this visible consciousness is "Free Energy" coming from the same space we are living but operating at different level for its manifestations, based on consciousness discoveries of Natural Laws. All manifestations must happen according to the laws of nature, irrespective of its normative outcomes. The Illuminati / NWO dark forces came from Wrong Efforts in their degenerated continuity of the consciousness where Action-Reaction and Likes-attract-Likes impersonally operate. The techniques of Bullying others based on Fears and short-term masters-slaves relationships are well documented in all organized religions with their Gods, Allah, Bodhisattvas, Buddhas, etc. In reality, all intelligent beings are only parts of the Whole fully subjected to the laws of nature according to Thing-As-it-Is.
Just like any other external force generated by Volition / Sankhara, its momentum must come to the end, either by a counter-action and/or the end of its life cycle. Since it is only a part of the Whole, it is impossible for the collective dark forces to be against the Cosmic Consciousness of the Whole. By knowing the law of Nature in activating the force of the Whole, one can be a facilitator to be part of the solution in one's continuous Learning and Doing in the continuity of the consciousness. This is actually the case in foiling the plots of Illuminati / NWO at a very top level using the innate ability of living students and effortless orchestration without undue interference to the working of the nature. There is no one to punish the degenerated esoteric entities. Via self-defence, the living students selected by the teacher(s) can do the job while in hand-on Learning and Doing at the Right Time and Right Place contributed by many others. The esoteric plots could not happen in 2012, then 2014 - 2015, due to the aggregate consciousness of the mass with minimum interference from high above.
Due to available snatching technology, the degenerated dark forces - knowing nothing about human military strategies - took controls of their followers in war crimes, reported ethnic cleansing, terrors, etc, on a "historic scale". We are happy to report that the esoteric possessions have also been foiled just as the destroy of the commanding Owl and contracts signed in blood. With humanity concerted effort, we thing the Islamic State will soon come to an end. We wish the time will come when most people are exciting with opportunities of Doing Good in one's normative evolution of the consciousness where Happiness and Sufferings are actually experiencing by intelligent beings.
Applying modern science in individual and aggregate streams of consciousness where each stream is a container and container of containers, there are innumerable practical applications, "Making Life Easier and Happier" at both individual and aggregate levels so everyone - individual and aggregate - can be an Agent of Changes to change oneself and the environment one a part. The knowledge base is accumulated with or without the presence of the dominant mover. The technologies[R21], [R21.1], [R21.2] are already there and used in espionage tactics, stock prices, movie scripts, and architecture. The difference in the Science of KhaiPhong is the injection of normative decision of What Count[R23] driven by people capable to change both the directions and patterns of productions and consumption.
[2.2] Scientific approach to the Fourfold Truth
on the Nature of Mind versus the Zen Contest
between Shen-Hsiu and HuiNeng
The Fourfold Truth is the foundation of Buddhist Dharma as formulated by the Buddha first sermon[D19.2] in forming the Buddhist Sangha. The communities of monks and nuns have the responsibility to put forward its accepted Understanding and empirically verify these pieces of Truths as Scientific Facts (observable, testable and reproducible) on the new consistent framework between Buddhist Noble eightfold Path and Nirvana, asserted by the third Truth in 'The End of Dukkha'[D42]. It is the connection between the Fourth Truth (Noble eightfold Path) with the Fourth Seal Nirvana for other members at least having a logical roadmap to know they are on the right track in a dedicated career, not to be a part of proven horrible crime against humanity leading by claimed infallible popes in the past 1700 years of the Roman Catholic Church. Yes, 1700 years of humanity dark period with billions lives heading toward an Abyss of unnecessary Sufferings that No One having a minimum Conscience can tolerate as a part of one's Worthy Existence. In our context, 'Truth' is the 'Thing As It Is' and pieces of Truth are scientific facts in different conditions.
First, Dukkha - having its taxonomy (classification) as dukkha-dukkha, viparinama-dukkha, sankhara-dukkha - is "Thing As It Is" for any manifestation since all manifestations are conditioned (sankhara-dukkha), continuously changed (viparinama-dukkha) and impermanence. No manifested thing can be "Forever" scientifically proven by the second law of thermodynamics due to the generation of entropy of existence. Buddhist Fourfold Truth is (1) Dukkha, (2) Dukkha caused by Ignorance leading to Sufferings (Dukkha-Dukkha / Suffering Dukkha) commonly explained in the links of causes and effects Table 2, (3) Dukkha can be ended or the Cessation of Dukkha which is to "be directly experienced"[D19.2], and (4) Noble eightfold Path[D36] is the process or model to the cessation of Dukkha. Since all manifestations are Dukkha which Thanissaro Bhikkhu translated as "stress", "Transcendental Inner Peace" or "Aesthetic / Transcendental Relaxation" from PrajnaTIP in Sound (and Light) is the direct antidote to this "dukkha / stress".
- What does it mean "Cessation of Dukkha" in the Third Truth?
- How the process / model of Noble eight fold Path can drive "Suffering Dukkha" into "Thing-As-It-Is Dukkha" leading toward What Count[R23]?
- Does "Cessation / End of Dukkha" mean Nirvana? Is the Nirvana attainable and describable in the Continuity of the Consciousness?
Out of these questions and based on Gotama's "Dhammacakkappavattana Sutta - Setting the Wheel of Dhamma in Motion"[D19.2], we connect the dots value added by other dedicated explorers together with discovered technologies to Transcend Inner Peace and beyond to fill the Gaps that Gotama and the 2500+ years of Buddhist Sangha have not theoretically explained and empirically verified. We value-add:
- The razor-sharp Guiding Light required qualities of "Right Understanding and Right Motivation" in the "Prajna" division of the Noble eightfold Path for a "Right Effort".
- The developed technologies leading to this Prajna - called PrajnaTIPs - in "the practice leading to the cessation of dukkha" or cultivating "the state (Mindfulness) and stock of Prajna"
- The state and stock of Prajna right in the first absorption (detachment-born jhana) of Samma-Samadhi has been deepen with scientific attributes by HuiNeng Samadhi-Prajna, leading to different signed posts of practical living via Bodhidharma's Detachment-Prajna - Jue Guan Lun (TUYỆT QUÁN LUẬN)[D32.1] - in "Thing-As-It-Is Dukkha with no Conflict"
- The dynamic interaction[R7.5] between the state (Mindfulness) and stock of Prajna with explored trails leading to the signed posts and from these signed posts to other discovered trails in Kindness and Compassion[R16]. With actual Compassion, transcendental Morality and Meditation (Dhyana) can be scientifically and deeply cultivable (PrajnaTIP in Kindness) since (1) Prajna is the flower of Compassion tree deep rooted in Sunyata / Oneness and (2) A darkness (conditioned / duality) cannot see another darkness As-It-Is, there is a "Light" outside the conditioned boundary.
The innate Buddha Nature will wake one up to correct the "Suffering Dukkha" via Prajna in "Making Life Easier and Happier". These questions - up to 2017 - have not been satisfactory answered at both theoretical and empirically verifiable levels. They are different ways to the questions about (1) the meaning in the Cessation of Dukkha, (2) the difference between "Suffering Dukkha" driven by Ignorance and "Thing-As-It-Is Dukkha" driven by Prajna, and (3) the verifiable meaning of Buddhist Nirvana.
The most recent attempt (uploaded to Internet on 15 December 2011) to partially address this core framework came from the Dalai Lama 14th to explore the third Truth 'Cessation of Dukkha' in his 'Fourfold Truth', a synthesis of entire Buddhist technical understanding together with the speaker life time and many years of publicly world-wide delivering the Gotama's Fourfold Truth, signifying a new beginning of Buddhist scientific approach[R12] which is, according to the speaker, logically possible based on three arguments:
- Frequent Reflections (Bhavana) on daily activities based on one's innate Buddha Nature capable to know the Right and the Unworthy relevant to one's Present Moment for appropriate 'Counter-Thrust' against negative Thrusts presented as relevant Issues,
- Being a conduit to leverage the Infinite Power of the Whole (Consciousness) to overcome all negative forces, and
- Basing on Nagarjuna's assertion [ at thought level ] the Purity of the Mind[D46] that nothing can contaminate it. By Purifying the Mind, we can achieve the Cessation of Dukkha as asserted in the third Truth to verify Nirvana where all karmic forces are eliminated. That state of mind is Dharmakaya (Pháp-Thân / manifested God or Allah) and one is a Buddha..
The Dalai Lama first argument is based on Gotama's implicit Axiom 'Living' where the innate 'Buddha Nature' - capable to know the Right and Unworthy relevant to one's Present Moment - is its corollary. Reflection or Bhavana, being Aware of precious Qualities veiled by Ignorance and Imagination, is considered as the direct approach to Dhyana [ Thiền (Vietnamese), Zen (Japanese), Chan (Chinese) ] anywhere any time when there is sufficient intensity of attention for an Awareness to be outside one's conditioned box. It is the Intensity of Attention to enable one directly see the Issue in a wider scope from different depths in patch C in Figure 2.
HuiNeng specifically defined that reflection can only be a Dhyana if and only if one can transcend the conditioned boundary to directly contact Oneness / Thing-As-It-Is without Conflict Inner Peace. This transcending the boundary is called breaking the crust of sesame seed for its oil by Tilopa[D39], and available to only few having thousands years of pounding the Right Mindfulness on the changing Duality and the unchanged Oneness as the story told by Ajnatakaundinya (Kiều Trần Như) in Shurangana Sutra[D31] about the guests coming and leaving but the host remaining. The question is what does it take for that right Intensity of Attention to materialize? The Vietnamese Zen Trúc Lâm takes this active "Reflection" as its fundamental principle, yet up to 2017 Not Having scientific solution for the mass to pass Relative Truth at thinking level into the Ultimate (Wider) Truth of Oneness / Thing-As-It-Is without Conflict for an Insight into the Emptiness. Hence, the most it can touch is at the thinking level of the Dalai Lama about the Fourfold Truth. The Science and Economics of KhaiPhong will materialize its motto.
Reflection has been part of all organized religions and mostly implemented in indoctrinated environment to be a good 'Christian, Muslim, Buddhist' which is the source of religious divisions and enslave one within a comfort zone of conditioned container. The Observer is binding to the Observed, rather than the one with "completely open mind", capable to know 'the Observer', 'the Observed', the 'State of Observation', and something beyond as illustrated in Figure 2 and in the scientific experiment to directly access something 'Unconditioned' and 'Unborn' from the Self/Selfless Awareness[D8]. There are two factors in the answer of the question: (1) the tainted mind has to be Free from internal disturbances, (2) the Awareness must be deep enough for an effortless Intensity of Attention. One can visualize the solution as an empty container where "energy" is directed by the Attention to fill the container in the reverse process from Form to Consciousness.
At the personal level, the container is the "self" and the tainted mind comprises of noises from six senses (eye, ear, nose, tongue, body, mind) wherever the senses are directed so what it sees is its Reality different from Actuality of Thing As It Is (Figure 1). The Intensity of Attention or energy may come from one's concentration and/or from cosmic. At the aggregate level, the noises are always there due to Actions / Reactions - Moves / Counter-Moves of all involved parties. The solution - at personal level - of how to empty the container's content for a "Completely Open Mind or No Mind Enclosure" is explicitly and scientifically described in the Heart Sutra[R2].
Similarly, if one uses the Sound Technology as described in Shurangama Sutra[D31], each one will have different descriptions of the trail moving through the four signed posts described by Gotama if one has actually passed the signed posts. We will provide the description, based on actual description of the Sound Technology as recorded in the Sutra as we did with the Heart Sutra against Gotama's descriptions[R2]. The scientific process sets up barrier to effortlessly wipe out professional scam artists and faked meditation masters entering the game at Word / Image / blah-blah-blah level since their descriptions will be scrutinized by the World. One must stand on one's own feet as what Gotama had done. Here is a concrete theoretical solution with scientifically measurable Tests in "Taming The Ox" where one's personal experiences are presented as a thesis contributing to the community knowledge base that the Dalai Lama can only touch at logical level of brain intelligence - far below the Gotama qualified Mindfulness and HuiNeng Transcendental state of Samadhi-Prajna - which is only a part of the Budh Mind or the sixth (Brain and Instinct) sense, far below the seventh (Vibration) sense capable to get the Pulse and possible optimal solution relevant to the present moment of a complex issue.
The second argument from the Dalai Lama can be consciously executed by not many who must have thousands years of cultivation of that speciality in their streams of consciousness. Out of these selected few, we have identified at least five (5) living students having this capability for their own benefits, plus being conduits to direct cosmic energy for the benefits of others. The Cosmic Consciousness is available to all at different degrees of accessibility since each has within oneself some degree of [ ComPassion - Prajna ]. Compassion is the foundation and connecting point of one's self consciousness to the cosmic consciousness while Prajna is a flower of the Compassion tree deep rooted in Sunyata. Its practicality is immense for individual practitioner riding on the Inner Power available in one's Buddha Nature intimately connected to the Whole, and to the Whole if it can actually raise the mass/environment consciousness level using each practitioner as a Centralized Conduit for targeted energy vibrations. It is observable, testable and achievable as Scientific Fact based on actual experiences of living students.
To add some credibility to the Dalai Lama second argument and the practicality of the "Emptiness" in one's continuity of the consciousness, we describe here how a living student - known as a Sound Specialist - foiled the esoteric dark forces behind Illuminati New World Order. How much of this description you want to take is up to you, but those actually controlled under the esoteric forces can personally know it and have Good News that you are all Free from their direct controls. From now on, you are fully responsible for your Action and the Environment you are a part based on your "Conscience / Prajna / Wisdom". We have touched in Channelling and Extra Terrestrial (ET) that the external agent can use consciousness technologies through their Volition to (1) perform voodoo[R8] causing physical pain, (2) artificially snatch multiple souls on one physical body commonly known as clone under ET technologies, (3) remotely control your mind and sensations, etc. The scientific process behind this phenomenon is that your "Mind" is binding to these forces - as Realities generated by Imagination from your senses and the dark forces - while in Actualities the past deeds (either Right or Wrong) were done.
If one has "No-Mark" once the action is completed, the binding/clinging force is not there. The dark force cannot exert any control on You since you are not part of it. It is similar to the binding force of Allah in Muslim, Infallible priests in Roman Catholic Church, Guru / Master / Bodhisattva / Buddha in Buddhist and Hindu which are only Names to be dropped. What that student has done is to use cosmic force to destroy the exerting forces from the other sides to help them not committing further bad deeds that they must be fully responsible for due to the natural laws of Action-Reaction and Likes-attract-Likes. The best defending effort is "to Know oneself at the driving forces behind the Volition / Freewill / Sankhara and to Dissolve appearances in Emptiness". It is the principle behind Gotama's advice to Ajita's Questions[D21] about "Mindfulness that obstructs and restricts them, and by Prajna, they are dissolved". The process will be materialized and popularized in KhaiPhong thanks to discovered natural laws to do the heavy lifting.
The absence of Light (Darkness) and Light are natural phenomena and through the innate "Buddha Nature" everyone can be a part to make happened "Light" for easier and happier life or "Darkness" of Sufferings. Once knowing more about oneself - consciously Doing and Learning from "Right Understanding and Right Motivation / Prajna / the Kingdom of God within" - one is an Agent of Change to change oneself and the environment toward What Count[R23]. Hope you can see this simple scientific process of Thing-As-It-Is that most Sufferings in humanity in many thousand years are not necessary and the importance of discovering Natural Laws in Making Life Easier and Happier that criminals and professional scam artists trying to enslave humanity in masters-slaves relationships.
The above statement is an "Observable Fact based on Natural Laws" that requires some elaborations so sensitive / practical people can have a wider view of "Right Effort" in Continuity of the consciousness. They can be agents of Changes and seeds in exciting with the opportunities of "Doing Good". The past threads of dominant Illuminati and NWO (New World Order) made happened researches connecting 5,000 years of human history to financially dominant secret groups and societies so the most skeptics would not think this happened by pure chance. Esoterically, the 5,000 years of human Sufferings under the yokes of masters-slaves relationships are incomparable to over 60,000 man years of "terrors and sufferings" caused by dark forces in higher realms. Without the Right Time (beginning of the new Era) and Right Place (existing in different realms having different applicable natural laws, and ability of inter-realm learning and doing) - together with the orchestration of even Higher Realms where the teacher Avalokiteshvara is a part - students of that teacher would be harmed long time ago, and humanity would not be able to avoid the planned events of the NWO where over 90% human population will be wiped out.
A Break-Through of the Vicious Circle will not be a possibility and/or take a much longer time even with more discovered Natural Laws in Making Life Easier and Happier because not many among us have sufficient Confidence in their Conscience / Prajna / Buddha Nature when there still exist behind the scene esoteric dark forces. The orchestration has been done in higher realms in a very short period of time. It is now the time for changes in human realm where each one of us can be a part that most people can see the speed of changes beyond their imaginations. The changes will be sustainable since there are sufficient number of qualified students strategically put in different realms who will naturally work together at the Right Time due to the effortless orchestration of the teachers.
Entities in the dark forces missed an important part of the Natural Laws that the "Quality of the Consciousness" determined its evolution as theorized by Buddhist Consciousness-Only[D35]. The natural laws of Action-Reaction and Likes-attract-Likes are universal, just like the Dependent Nature. Within human realm, many highly respected in the most powerful positions of religions, politics, militaries, finances are unqualified to be "persons", even at the time of their still living due to inertia of forms / manifestations. They are the ones who know their qualities and can change the Qualities of the consciousness by changing "Wrong Effort" to "Right Effort" with available resources.
Finally, here is an important scientific observation based on our actual experiences for those having the capability to use cosmic energy. First of all, due to long evolution from Consciousness to Form, there are innumerable visible and invisible tainted marks in your stream of consciousness. This is also applicable to historical Gotama and Jesus as we esoterically know their reincarnations and their hurdles due to tremendous barriers set up - with collaborating assistance from dark forces - by their followers in the organised religions under their names. Secondly, due to the innate Budh - Buddha Nature / The Kingdom of God - in most people, one can evolve from Form back to Consciousness, by-passing tainted marks in the six senses. Due to your unexpected correct processes of many thousands years, you can naturally direct cosmic consciousness toward certain targets. That capability can be used for Good or Bad targets with their consequences, well documented in Hindu and Buddhist recorded documents. Even with Good Target, one has to be very careful since mass followers with their Grasping in Greed and Hallucination, you can very easily loose your HonNhien and Selfless to be replaced by a Self, enslaving you to their binding Word/Image and Clinging Thought that ultimately destroy you.
Since natural laws are to be discovered, it is best to "reverse engineer" your unique Comparative Advantage into a scientific process to help and train qualified people in making the process sustainable for the benefits of others and your Continuity of the Consciousness, not always starting from square one, yet cheated by criminals and professional scam artists setting up organised religions under your shadow to destroy yourself and the World. Another fruitful observation is that you can direct Cosmic Energy not only to help others but also to Help Yourself in rejuvenation and reborn from "stress / dukkha" caused by tainted senses, exactly as Gotama's advice about his qualified Mindfulness and Prajna[D21]. This will make you a valuable part of the Whole toward a Right Direction of What Count[R23] where everyone can be an Agent of Changes to change oneself and the environment one a part.
On the Dalai Lama third argument about 'Purity of the mind' asserted by Nagarjuna[D34], we had at later time a controversial contest between Shen-Hsiu and HuiNeng to represent the unbroken lineage from the Buddha, shown in Table 3 - the Zen Contest[R5.1] on the Nature of Mind. The interpretations from the Dalai Lama 14 seem to be a general accepted view from many Mahayanists. Assuming what we listened are Correct, we are going to explore that assertion and interpretations versus this Zen Contest.
According to a translation of Nagarjuna's Madhyamaka from Sankrit to Chinese then Vietnamese, there are three (3) essential features of Madhyamaka (Nhửng đặc sắc của Trung Luận). We first briefly comment them:
- No obstruction from Manifestation and Emptiness (Hửu Không vô ngại): (a) It uses the Dependent Nature (nương vào duyên khởi), to explain the duality (giảng nói pháp nhị đế), (b) It explores the duality (nói pháp nhị đế) to clearly point to the Emptiness (để chỉ rõ Thắng Nghĩa Không), (c) It uses the clear understanding of Emptiness (hiểu rõ Thắng Nghĩa Không) to see the meaning of the Middle Path (thấy ý nghĩa Trung Đạo). Please look at following facts to be scientifically proven and practically delivered at the right time and right place. Emptiness is where duality is dissolved to actually experience that state of consciousness at different depths. Once knowing the Emptiness, one can describe the experience from one's angle as in the recorded "Lesser Discourse on Emptiness" (MN 121)[D25]. Without delivering transcendental states of consciousness, this feature is only a "finger pointing to a painted moon" and not practical.
- Uphold both Mahayana and Theravada (Xiển dương cả Đại Thừa lẩn Tiểu Thừa). Please see the upside-down of 2500+ years of Buddhist Sangha.
- Skillfully establish True Dharma (Khéo léo trong việc lập chính nghĩa). Scientific approach is the only and modern way to establish "True Dharma" or discovered Natural Laws in making life easier and happier.
Using current scientific knowledge - supplement with our actual understanding - we can logically prove that:
- HuiNeng had actual experience on What He Said. His description is consistent with Gotama's description of the ninth stage of absorption in the "cessation of perception and feeling", and consistent with accepted Mahayana literature.
- The assertion at thought level on 'Purity of the Mind' and interpretations were at logical deduction, Not at Actual Experience which is accessing the Higher Consciousness in living, fully alert to dynamically adjust one's Reality to Actuality of 'Thing As It Is' (Figure 1). One cannot use a darkness of purification at thought level to actually purify other darkness-es that drive the volition and thoughts. By 'Purifying the Mind' to achieve the cessation of Dukkha - as argued by the Dalai Lama - or 'Take heed to keep it always clean' - as supposedly posted by Shen-Hsiu without further qualifications to demonstrate one's ability to know Oneness - are their logical deductions at conditioned thoughts. There are no transcendental states at both the Observed and the Observer in the two arguments. This logical criticism can be easily understood - using mathematical set theory as proven above - and is similar to the criticism of Madhyamaka theorists that a sword (no matter how sharp it is) cannot cut itself.
- Nagarjuna philosophy of [ 'Emptiness', 'Dependent Nature' and 'Madhyamaka' ][D34] as presented in searching for the 'Continuity of the Consciousness' enforces the conceptual level of the possible 'Cessation of Ignorance' which are all within the thinking box (the darkness) of the thinker, Not Beyond Thought (the light) at the Observed which is a scientific fact explained by Krishnamurti in 60+ years about the 'Intensity of Attention'. The description of 'Beyond Word / Thought' in the philosophy of Madhyamaka is not Beyond Word / Thought. It must be outside-the-box 'right in the mess of ignorance' in one's Continuity of the Consciousness ('Thing As It Is'). 'Emptiness' is a significant signed post to know one's Reality and do something about it. It is the confused philosopher in an Abyss of Thinking 'all Dharmas neither exist nor non exist' - Then What - not out of it in the Actuality of Unity (Oneness / No-Conflict) transcending all duality of 'Forms' and 'Abstractions' at the 'Intensity of Attention' point.
- The argument that 'By Purifying the Mind, one can have the Cessation of Dukkha to achieve Nirvana where all karmic forces are eliminated' Is Illogical since the conditioned act from "tainted mind" of Purifying has its own Issues within the conditioned Mind of No Freshness. It is the same pattern as in (1) the destruction of ignorance by another ignorance, (2) [ Ethical Code > Concentration > Prajna - Giới > Định > Tuệ ]. It is inconsistent proven by set theory and Consciousness of the consciousness model.
- Contrasting Gotama's "The End of Dukkha"[D42]:
There is, bhikkhus, that base where there is no earth, no water, no fire, no air; no base consisting of the infinity of space, no base consisting of the infinity of consciousness, no base consisting of nothingness, no base consisting of neither-perception-nor-non-perception; ... Here, bhikkhus, I say there is no coming, no going, no staying, no deceasing. Not fixed, not movable, it has no support. Just this is the End of Dukkha
Này các tỷ kheo, có xứ này, tại đấy không có đất, không có nước, không có lửa, không có gió; không có hư không vô biên xứ; không có thức vô biên xứ; không có vô sở hữu xứ; không có phi tưởng phi phi tưởng xứ... Do vậy, này các tỷ kheo, Ta tuyên bố không có đến, không có đi, không có trú, không có diệt, không có sanh, không có an trú, không có chuyển vận, không có sở duyên. Đây là sự đoạn tận khổ đau.
with HuiNeng question 'which moves: the flag, the wind or your mind', plus "the Essence of Mind is intrinsically pure / free from becoming or annihilation / self-sufficient / free from change"[R5] Chapter I we can conclude that the third Truth - Cessation of Dukkha - is personally Verified by Gotama's "Cessation of Perception and Feeling" or momentary Nirvana, seconded by HuiNeng's "Unmoving Sunyata" that will be available to most persons via KhaiPhong Sound and Consciousness technologies to directly testify the Buddhist Heart Sutra[R2].
- That definition of the "End of Dukkha" as quoted directly from Gotama plus his statement on the "End of Dukkha to be directly experienced" in his "Setting the Wheel of Dhamma in Motion"[D19.2] debunks the common understanding in the communities of monks and nuns that "Nirvana is the place where all karmic forces are eliminated" as explained by the Dalai Lama "that state of mind is Dharmakaya (Pháp-Thân / manifested God or Allah) and one is a Buddha from his pure imagination since he has not passed even The Gateway-to-Oneness qualified by Gotama as Right Mindfulness.
- Binding on the "Utopia of Nirvana" then "PariNirvana" at the end of life cycle, the Dalai Lama falls into the same issue faced by Soyen Shaku who could not directly answer on the "Compassion of an Enlighten One" in a "Reply to a Christian Critic"[R6]. Momentary Nirvana - not Buddhist Nirvana then PariNirvana - is the correct answer.
- Whether Nirvana attainable and describable in the Continuity of the Consciousness which is a form of energy and cannot be destroyed ("Suddendly Died Out / Vụt Tắt") is an open topic for further researches and contributions from the World. We casually touch on this topic in the next section to conclude the Buddha way of "Gradual Cultivation" for accumulating required state and stock of Prajna leading toward "Sudden Awaken then Awakening", based on our actual experience and quoted texts from Lankavatara Sutra[D32], the only text handed down by the "Father of Zen" Bodhidharma.
This shows that there exists not only verifiable solution for "Thing-As-It-Is Dukkha" right at the Present Moment of each unique individual if one can personally verify Gotama and HuiNeng "Unmoving Sunyata", but also verifiable momentary Nirvana in relative existence and something Beyond - not yet discovered as a human being - in the Essence of the Right Living / Effort. There is No Contradiction - similar to self and not-self, ultimate (wider) truth and relative truth, activity and silence, right brain and left brain - in opposing properties of the nature of a Wholesome Mind. There is only the Right Effort / Action driven by Prajna - capable of sensing both the signals from the senses and one's state of being for an optimum action relevant to the present moment - or Suffering driven by Ignorance in different conditions along one's evolution of the Consciousness.
There is just Consciousness and its normative Living Manifestations due to the Buddha Nature in different streams of the Consciousness along the Essence of the Right Living / Effort at different depths according to Natural Law of 'Thing As It Is'. 'Emptiness' - visible via HonNhien - is there for rejuvenation / naturally reborn having different degrees of Unattached / Detached at either denser more Sufferings or higher - lighter - expanding Space and Consciousness.
The Purification has to be from the Inner Peace of "Oneness / Thing-As-It-Is without Conflict" where Nirvana is at the mountain top - in human existence according to the know-how up until 2017 - as described by Gotama and personally known by some of us. The process in knowing that Inner Peace must be Transcendental - hence Transcendental Inner Peace (TIP) - to personally verify Gotama's Not-Self toward Nothingness in his seventh stage of Right Inner Peace before reaching momentary Nirvana. That is why we ask you in the above supreme "koan" to put fire on Gotama's Noble eightfold Path to know it is the "real gold" in solving your actual most dominent pain and personally verify the Heart Sutra[R2] that "in Sunyata there is not ... dukkha-sammudaya-nirodha-marga / Cho nên, trong Sunyata ... không khổ tập diệt đạo"
Contrary to all explanations of Buddhist monks/nuns and scholars that the Heart Sutra may contradict itself in turning all manifestations into emptiness, and/or repeating itself in form and emptiness, it is the affirmation of a scientific process that all practitioners must go through because that is the Nature of Things according to Natural Laws. Knowing that Gateway to Oneness at different depths of Right / Transcendental Inner Peace (Samma-Samadhi), one has Clarity and Insight to dynamically adjust one's Realities veiled by Imagination to Actualities (Figure 1), closing the gaps causing Inner Conflicts - Outer Conflicts in one's continuous Learning and Doing to deepen the ability to see Thing As It Is from Right Mindfulness (state of Prajna) fortified with accumulated Right Inner Peace (stock of Prajna).
On 'Purity of the Original Mind' where 'No Dust Can Be Collected' in the Zen contest, one can personally testify and verify this "Verifiable Emptiness", known as the seventh observable attribute of Right Samadhi or (Sunyata) Nothingness (but Wonderful) where all manifestations including feelings, perceptions, impulses, and six sense consciousnesses are attracted by its charming power for rejuvenation. It is a scientific fact, an Actuality like Love and Emptiness, far beyond thought where there in no thought right from Cosmic Consciousness (Expanding Space, Expanding Consciousness) before entering Unity. So instead of assertion, the approach must have theoretical foundation to scientifically prove and empirical process to verify it. No scam artist or saboteur dares to get closed since they will be immediately toasted.
The force (Inner Peace) of Purification[D26] comes from outside-the-box known as 'Ultimate (Wider) Truth' by Nagarjuna, 'Perfected Nature' by Asanga, 'Wu-Nien / Self Nature' by HuiNeng, 'Awareness of Self Awareness' by XuanZang, the 'kingdom of God within you' by Jesus, 'Nirvana' by Gotama, the 'Nameless' by Lao Tzu. It is called Oneness / Thing-As-It-Is without Conflict in modern Activities as illustrated in Figure 10 of the Ox Herding Pictures or the utility / purpose of the real Substance of Existence - the Emptiness from returning to the Source - as illustrated in Figures 8 and Figure 9. All we need is to turn the right-side up to revitalize Gotama's precious discoveries, together with breakthroughs in Consciousness and Compassionate technologies we will be in tune with the new Era of Consciousness revolution.
Back to the controversial Zen event - whether there was the actual contest or not - between Shen-Hsiu and HuiNeng, we said without further qualifications to demonstrate one's ability to know the state of "Oneness" Shen-Hsiu did not pass the Gateway to Oneness. His statement is "logical" and far above the current Dalai Lama XIV "teaching and spreading" Buddhism due to the innate "Detachment-Born" from the first stage of Gotama's Right Inner Peace and the natural "Intensity of Attention" coming from observations and investigations versus the Dalai Lama XIV "doctrinal intelligence" coming from Buddhist texts: "This body is the Bodhi-tree, The mind is like a mirror bright; Take heed to keep it always clean And let not dust collect upon it". Here is an interesting observation: Shen-Hsiu was focussing at the target 'Oneness - Atakkàvacara / Chân Như' in the Changing (viparinama-dukkha) and Conditioned (sankhara-dukkha) Existence (Dukkha) / Tùy duyên Bất biến Bất biến Tùy duyên' in Lankavatara Sutra[D32]. Yet, he started from the actualities of this body with mind tainted by the senses to put a Right Effort in keeping it clean having detachment-born from open-mind outside all Buddhist doctrines which is advocated by Bodhidharma to be consistent with Prajna from the Heart Sutra. This means only in actual living one can change the quality of one's consciousness. But without outside-the-box Prajna, this process will take a long time until the "intensity of attention" is strong enough for a natural lift-up from the plane of duality.
It seems to oppose to "There is no Bodhi-tree, Nor stand of mirror bright. Since all is void, Where can the dust alight?". HuiNeng 's assertion is the same as Gotama's Verifiable Emptiness at the seventh Jhana in "Nothingness", and explicitly described in the Heart Sutra[R2] "in Sunyata there is not form not feeling ... not dukkha-sammudaya-nirodha-marga". This is a Thing-As-It-Is natural law, and in the right conditions one should be able to verify this "Oneness". HuiNeng 's Sudden Awaken via Diamond Sutra (Vajracchedika Prajnaparamita Sutra)[R7] personally demonstrated another fact of "Breakthrough" coming from Samadhi-Prajna (Định/Tuệ) to strategically issue a directed action to change the event (mass consciousness) toward a Right Effort for the benefits of One and the Environment. It spells out the dynamic interactions according to Natural Laws between Utter Silence and the chaos of changing and conditioned activities, between Nargarjuna Ultimate (Wider) Truth and Relative Truth[D34] , between Asanga "Perfected Nature" and "Imaginary Nature"[D35] that HuiNeng called the Self-Nature. But without scientifically deliverable transcendental technologies, the assertion is only a "personal opinion / ontological subjective" of Gotama, HuiNeng, Nagarjuna, Asanga.
Therefore, Nagarjuna's "No obstruction from Manifestation and Emptiness / Hửu Không vô ngại" is materialized if and only if there are scientific processes at the actualities of [ Body >< Mind >< Right Effort ] and deliverable technologies to transcend duality toward Nothingness. In other word, there must be a complete and measurable integration of the Shen-Hsiu approach based on the Lankavatara Sutra[D32] and HuiNeng approach based on the Diamond Sutra (Vajracchedika Prajnaparamita Sutra)[R7]. The first approach forces all monks and Buddhist scholars getting out of their professional scam processes to systematically classify the Issue and verifiable proven effective methods for that Issue, abundantly available in 2500+ years of their claims and counter claims" in different practices. The second approach with deliverable transcendental technologies enables outside-the-box Natural Purification to purify the mind from its tainted outdated marks for clearer "Right Understanding and Right motivation" of efforts in all activities and relationships. Since manifestations are the duality of efforts in changing and conditioned existence, the first approach delivers measurable evidenced-based reality of the second approach, turning an Art into a Science that No Organised Religions and Isms can touch up to the end of 2017 since they are driven by criminals[R18.3] and professional scam artists[R18.4].
The two approaches are mathematically synthesized on the plane of TRUTH of any event - perpendicular to the plane of duality - based on the quality of the practitioner, either (1) at the event to its Oneness then high above on the dimension of [ Prajna / Wisdom / Conscience ], or (2) from the event instantaneously to the non-duality of Oneness then diagonal to the stable highest prajna, (3) or from the event instantaneously jumping to one's highest non-duality point of one's Samadhi-Prajna. Only at high above on the plane of TRUTH one can see the event "Thing-As-It-Is" and directly perceive strategic point to change the event toward a right direction of What Count at one's "Intensity-of-Attention" which affects one's quality of the consciousness and the environment one a part.
We are developing "fair" community consensus based on gossip of the Gossip protocol in Free Mu Command Centre and Personal Assistant to expose the effective processes for the Issue - claimed and counter-claimed in different conflicting sects of organised religions and among religions where Buddhism is a part - verifiable by all participants to turn "personal opinion / ontological subjective" into epistemic objective. Scientific processes at the actualities of [ Body >< Mind >< Right Effort ] are accumulated and statistically rated just like measurable effectiveness of a cure for specified disease. Right or Wrong effort is definitely measurable at the bottom line of [ Todos >< Executes >< Feedbacks ] in any Plan to directly connect to "Normative Intelligence" coming from the stability division of Gotama's Noble eightfold Path - Right Effort, Right Mindfulness, Right Samadhi (Inner Peace) - using Natural Purification[D26] from Normative Intelligence to purify the tainted senses for the manifestation of Prajna in Right Understanding and Right Motivation. It is a proven process moving from measurable hard facts in any domain - widely used in sports - to an Art of clearly defined rules of the games and its normalised accepted behaviours. The aesthetic part is to democratise discovered favourable conditions and cultivable processes to turn consciousness in knowing more about oneself - making life easier and happier - into a science like any other sciences.
The 2500+ years of Buddhism have missed the discovered natural laws between "self / selfless", between "duality / oneness" in changing and conditioned existence discovered by Gotama and value added by many dedicated explorers - rekindled again by the first King of Vietnamese Tran Dynasty[R7.3] militarily defeating three major Mongol invasions in the 13th century - embedded in the stability division of the Noble eightfold Path to serve as the foundation of Prajna division in Right Understanding and Right Motivation for a Right Effort. This will be changed to a touchable fruit in the new Era with discovered scientific processes at the actualities of [ Body >< Mind >< Right Effort ] / Normative Intelligence that are assisted via statistical significance / Artificial Intelligence from signed posts of identified transcendental states toward Nothingness in activating the natural "Detachment-Born" of Thing-As-It-Is Dukkha[D32.1].
Similar to supply-demand and behaviour patterns lumped together as utility function in economics, we use modern functional programming to model "User/Service" normative behaviour as the driving force of demand-supply in forecasting and simulation where function is an attribute of the User/Service data structures in generating activities and relationships to theorise, empirically verify, model and simulate the complex interactions to include people in wider perspectives than just physical and economic manifestations. Artificial Intelligence with available BudhAI - Cayley using schema.org defined types plus HashGraph and TensorFlow Recommendation Engine - can be used to derive "Value" of the values for User/Service to be part of proven "Consciousness Technologies", helping people as a Personal Assistant. The bottom line is to help one know more about oneself and favourable conditions / environments to move from present condition to a measurable target having a clear cultivable path as an educational program.
No one in entire 2500+ years of Buddhist Sangha ever touches this possibility of transcendental states at different depths known by Gotama as Mindfulness-Prajna[D21] and by HuiNeng as Samadhi-Prajna[R5]. In delivering transcendental technologies, we use well-known processes implemented in sports for moving from measurable hard facts to consistent normalised performance of a flowing Art in any domain at different measurable notches of signed posts. We classify six (6) signed posts derived from Gotama's nine (9) jhanas to be statistically correlated with with Shen-Hsiu measurable [ Body >< Mind >< Right Effort ]. This is the target to be delivered in the Science and Economics of KhaiPhong.
The process from measurable hard facts to consistent normalised performance of a flowing Art is well understood in modern time. But the reverse engineering from an Art back to the roadmap and favourable conditions, making the Art cultivable for those exploring the trail has not been touched due to the wrong assumption that the Art is a Pathless land and/or given by some external agent(s). Since we are talking about "a light out of the darkness" into the new Era, let's look at how "that light" has been contributed by many dedicated explorers so we can connect the dots from their trails to form a correct roadmap with scientifically deliverable solutions.
Wu-Wei (Vô Vi) - the Non-Action - is well known in Tao to indicate a cultivable state of being in which one's actions are effortless. That kind of Action is not always "Non-Action" which demands an outside-the-box Prajna / Wisdom high above the plane of duality to know the optimal place and time for an Effortless Action. It is not the Lao Tzu 'doing nothing' message: "When the world knows beauty as beauty, ugliness arises; when it knows good as good, evil arises;" which is always in conflicting duality. It often includes in the paradox "Wei-Wu-Wei / action without action" or "effortless doing". It is considered as an Art and since there is not yet scientific process in moving from evidenced-based effort to measurable identified attribute of the Art, it is very much like Buddhist "Finger pointing to contradicting Moons" from the blind touching imaginary elephant of professional scam artists[R18.4], not knowing yet claim to know not seeing yet claimed to see in perpetuating masters-slaves relationships[D19.3]. It is similar to the defect in yin-yang duality of zero-sum game driving the world of I win You loose. Yes, 'the water flows of itself'. But knowing scientific facts, one can irrigate and leverage the power of water for many practical things. This means knowing the Dharma - the principle of cosmic order, the manifestation of Prajna - one can make the pie of "I win You loose" bigger for a win-win situation of [ 1 + 1 > 2 ] as mathematically proven in international trade. K'ung Tzu recognized the need of action and Social (Outside) Order for the benefits of One and the Communities. But his system leads to dictatorship from outside to impose its order on the constituents making up of the aggregate as done by Confucianism, Dictator, Nazi Fascism, Communism, etc. It turned China feudal systems from one dynasty to another where everyone is a looser in longer term of one's continuity of the consciousness as in the dialogue and factual consequence between Bodhidharma and the emperor Wu of Liang (r. 502–549).
These extremes of Non-Action and Action are driven by binding Word/Image and clinging Thought of conditioned duality, similar to Christianity (via binding Word/Image) and Islam (via clinging Thought). Very few - known as mystics - can ever be outside-the-box Beyond Conditioned Thought of conflicting duality to be in touch with state of being in which one's actions are effortless at deeper level of consciousness, high above the plane of duality of changes (viparinama-dukkha) and conditioned (sankhara-dukkha). The Chinese Wei-Wu-Wei is a direct perception of something touchable outside the duality of Action and Non-Action, but not deep enough to scientifically identify observable testable and measurable attributes in discovering underlying natural laws.
Gotama [563 - 483 BC] - independent from Lao Tzu and K'ung Tzu - after recalling the natural experience of Right Inner Peace (Samma-Samadhi) when he was a child, logically formulated the Fourfold Truth backed up by scientific verification against his personal Actuality. He turned the Dharma and established the community of monks and nuns with the Mission to make the Budh Dharma / The Tao sustainable for the benefits of One and the Whole. Unfortunately, there were defects in his Design, Build, and Execution to enable criminals and professional scam artists sabotaging his precious discoveries as evidenced-based reality of most Buddhist monks/nuns who do not understand nor know Detachment-Born - his required quality of the first transcendental meditation state - yet blah blah blah in their imagination of Mindfulness and Prajna to perpetuate masters-slaves relationships, selling what they do not know yet claimed to know, do not see yet claim to see. The practicality of his discoveries - centering around cultivable Mindfulness-Prajna - was in the advice to Ajita: "Karmas flow as streams, Whatever streams are in the World, it is Mindfulness that obstructs and restricts them, and by Prajna, they are dissolved". Yet, the advice is still his personal opinion up to 2017, since no one has ever deliver the transcendental states described by Gotama for others to verify, moving his personal opinions (ontological subjective) into epistemic objectives. This will be changed in the new Era of human Higher Consciousness.
Bodhidharma took Gotama's discoveries together with esoteric contributions in Lankavatara Sutra[D32] - well known via ET in the collapse of the Illuminati New World Order - to China with his own contribution[D32.1] in Jue Guan Lun / A Treatise on the Ceasing of Notions on the cultivable states moving from suffering dukkha (dukkha-dukkha) to Thing-As-It-Is Dukkha thanks to Detachment-Born that most monks/nuns in the entire history of Buddhist Sangha do not understand nor personally know. Bodhidharma corrected Gotama "defect of design" by stressing on the actuality of Dukkha due to tainted senses and a possible solution from cultivable Detachment-Born. In China, the value-added from Indian Nagarjuna Madhyamaka[D34] and Asanga's Consciousness-Only[D35] about the dynamic Middle Way - deeply exposed in Lankavatara Sutra[D32] - were cross-bred with Chinese Art of Action and Non-Action in Shen-Hsiu process of the actualities from [ Body >< Mind >< Right Effort ] to possible deliverable technologies to transcend duality toward Nothingness and unmoving Sunyata for rejuvenation and reborn as actually discovered by Gotama in his Verifiable Emptiness[D25].
It is from duality to Oneness then from Oneness to duality - theoretically exposed in Nagarjuna Madhyamaka and Asanga Consciousness-Only - which was personally demonstrated by HuiNeng[R5] in his Samadhi-Prajna to actually know the Beyond-Thought at the observed, No-Mark once the action completed, and Detachment-Born as his fundamental principle. Bodhidharma's value-add plus cross-breed between the Art of Action and Non-Action in Right Effort from Shen-Hsiu process are extremely important to turn Gotama's discoveries Right-side-Up which have been polluted by Gotama's Sangha even during his life time and later in both Theravada and Mahayana divisions. In China, the discoveries from Bodhidharma and HuiNeng were overwhelmed by the dominant Wu-Wei of Not-Doing-Anything since everything will come and go according to the Dependent Nature. Instead of integration between Indian Samadhi and Chinese Wei-Wu-Wei, hard core Buddhist professional scam artists[R18.4] enforce their cheating process with a mystic veil of Tao Wu-Wei (Vô Vi). Due to the defect - undetected by Gotama of stressing the Not-Self rather than the solution for Dukkha to naturally Experience Not-Self in the order of Gotama's first and second discourses - monk/nuns and followers waste their efforts Grasping the Beyond Duality from their duality plane, including theorising and debating rather than Living to Actually Know Dukkha and its possible solutions. Through this cultivable and measurable contribution, it may be a reason why Bodhidharma is legendarily considered as the founder of Shaolin Kung Fu.
Similarly, the Art of Action and Non-Action in the Right Effort from Shen-Hsiu process makes known the importance of Detachment-Born - required and qualified attribute in Gotama's first Jhana - to clearly recognise the binding and clinging forces of one's tainted senses in the dynamic interaction of body-mind for a Right Effort. It were the contributions of Bodhidharma about the state of being in Action but there is "No one / Not-Self" behind the action due to Detachment-Born, plus HuiNeng identified attributes of that Samadhi-Prajna state observable, testable and measurable in Beyond-Thought - Vô Tướng, No-Mark - Vô Vết, Detachment-Born - Vô Trụ that makes the "Art of Action in Detachment-Born" being a scientifically measurable Art, raising it up to different normalised higher notches for wide-spread Sharing via cultivable Consciousness of the consciousness in discovering underlying natural laws of Thing-As-It-Is.
These two significant value-adds have not been clearly exposed up to 2017 to help almost all Gotama's monks/nuns and followers from the drown state of inner conflicts - outer conflicts perpetuated by criminals and religious professional scam artists. Thanks to many dedicated explorers looking at the "Oneness" from angles different to that known by Gotama, KhaiPhong can apply modern technologies to point out Gotama's "undetected defects" in his Design, Build, and Execution while spreading his discoveries in 45+ years, together with deliverable Transcendental Technologies to actually demonstrate real contributions in Purifying the tainted senses via Detachment-Born by Bodhidharma, via Ultimate (Wider) Truth coming from Relative Truth by Nagarjuna, via Perfected Nature to be closer to Dependent Nature by Asanga. Finally, another unique Value-Add in Insight into the Sunyata and Prajna coming from Compassion well-known in the Buddhist Heart Sutra is deliverable to be Free from the Issues of tainted senses. The process is via logical connection of significant value-added "dots" in moving from the reality of inner conflicts - outer conflicts Dukkha in all individuals and their community aggregates toward the Right Living of Worthy Human Existence. The possibility can happen if and only if there exists required proper infrastructures for deliverable Transcendental states to enable "fair community consensus", turning Gotama's personal opinions into epistemic objectives.
To further appreciate the power of Detachment-Born which is a unique contribution of Gotama - missed by 2500+ years of Buddhist communities up until 2017 - and can now be statistically measurable at different depths of six (6) signed posts, let's touch the subtle causes of masters-slaves relationships driven by binding Word/Image (as done in Christianity) and clinging Thought (as done in Muslim) employed by all organized religions and isms where Buddhism is a part trying to imitate these flashy instances.
- The description is not the described! It is obvious that binding Word/Image and clinging Thought are not actualities, yet past crusades were historical facts causing violent deaths of innumerable lives and unnecessary Sufferings. It is a proof of tainted senses successfully exploited by criminals and religious professional scam artists. Vietnamese communists were able to ride on the painted cake of Roman Catholic Church - wearing the black robe - to serve their Intelligence in wining the wars against both French and US armies. If 1% to 7% world population have some degree of Detachment-Born / Vô Trụ / Xả humanity would not go through these dark periods.
- Within our group, there is a very advanced student capable to be aware the source of her thoughts and rational enough not to let the Church's "rule of marriage" - which has no moral nor legal right - interfere and destroy her life. Yet, after the marriage - duly performed by a Catholic priest - she felt missing something whenever she heard the church bell calling the faithful to the Mass. Thanks to their open mind - not imposing personal opinions on the other - she had sufficient time to shed the "Light" on the darkness that many may innocently take for granted. Only the Light can expel the darkness, not the darkness of imposing force on another cheated darkness. This student has natural Detachment-Born that we say most Buddhist monks / nuns / followers do not understand nor know! Therefore, only at the bottom line of the Effort one can say it is a Right of Wrong Effort driven by Prajna or Ignorance. Please reflect all of your Efforts up to now to honestly see where you stand.
- Thanks to the exposure of Illuminati New World Order and its esoteric collapse, many involved parties do know the esoteric influences which are external forces intentionally pushing one's mind toward a direction with or without direct impacts on the astral and physical bodies. The mentioned student is able to discern which coming from her own mind and which coming from external agent(s) to directly confront it with her mind power. Yet, through organised religions, criminals and professional scam artists can fool humanity and make unworthy living in 1000+ years of human ignorance.
- Having a Good Heart in Sharing Happiness Mitigating Sufferings are the moral lasting values according to natural laws of Dependent Nature. Yet, can one's effort be Fresh and totally Free from all binding and clinging forces, especially social binding and clinging forces imposed from outside via culture, nationality, social norm? We say Yes. Krishnamurti said Yes when not-for-profit social works imposed their values on him. Gotama said Yes in his Free Inquiry Kalama Sutta[D22] to know more about one's Prajna / Conscience - a faculty to know the Right and Unworthy - which is cultivable horizontally in daily activities and vertically in diving from within, drawing deeper power of the whole ocean (cosmic consciousness) where all disturbances at the surface are completely Empty (Absent). It is Not Easy! All reflection / claimed meditation techniques, isms, etc, driven by criminals and professional scam artists where claimed Buddhist teachers and meditation masters are parts, sabotaging and selling painted pictures of true discoveries - from dedicated explorers such as Gotama, Jesus, Nagarjuna, Asanga, Bodhidharma, Shen-Hsiu, Xuan-Zang, Hui-Neng, Krishnamurti, etc, - to fool humanity have been failed since they are all at duality conflicting level without deliverable concrete solutions from the actual discoveries! A conditioned from tainted senses cannot see other conditioned As-It-Is for a Right Effort! One needs to be outside-the-box high from duality plane of conflicting forces of changes (viparinama-dukkha) and conditioned (sankhara-dukkha). Only science - via discovering natural laws - can make life easier and reducing part of Sufferings. By discovering natural laws to dissolve all contents / stresses for rejuvenation and reborn, one can access to higher consciousness with measurable Detachment-Born at different signed posts of manifested Prajna and be Happier due to innate Buddha Nature in all persons. That is why (1) Binding Word/Image perfected by Roman Catholic Church, and (2) Clinging Thought perfected by Muslim are two concrete Issues being solved by Detachment-Born where you can contribute based on your actual Right Effort in using the Light of Emptiness to dissolve the unreal painted cakes.
Due to the pattern of Likes-attract-Likes, Action-Reaction, and continuity of the consciousness, we wonder what may happen to Shen-Hsiu (605-706), HuiNeng (638-713) and XuanZang (602-664) as they significantly contributed to Budh Dharma at three different angles around the same time. XuanZang theorizes outside-the-box "Consciousness of the consciousness"[D19.3] and uses the Prajnaparamita Hridaya (Bát Nhã Tâm Kinh)[R2] as a theoretical framework for further scientific investigations. It is not the zero-sum game from the struggling-self in yin-yang symbol, but Thing-As-It-Is [ 1 + 1 > 2 ] win-win in the "Dependent Nature" of existence as mathematically proven in international trade. Knowing HuiNeng Samadhi-Prajna, one effortlessly experiences Madhyamaka Relative / Ultimate (Wider) Truths or Consciousness-Only Perfected Nature to move Imaginary Nature toward Dependent Nature as explained in Taming The Ox.
In connecting the dots, we link these expositions together with discovered natural laws for heavy lifting to help many normatively verify the Truths exposed at these angles. Within our group, a student X had strong feelings that these three characterized streams of consciousness might have been together as three generals under Vietnamese Tran Dynasty helping to fight against the mighty Mongol. They may be together again this present time. They all know Buddhist Emptiness beyond Gotama's Nothingness that no monks and/or scholars can fool them. The student X - without reading any Buddhist text except this "zen contest" in 1970 - for some explanation about his personal "Unity Experience" all the way to no-outer-breath, he immediately sees the different depths stated by Shen-Hsiu and HuiNeng, plus their limitations and required scientifically deliverable technologies to integrate these seemingly opposing states but Thing-As-it-Is Actualities for "No Obstruction from Manifestation and Emptiness / Hửu Không Vô Ngại". Student Y - having distinct characteristics of HuiNeng - feels student X may be the reincarnation of Soyen Shaku[R6] - the first Zen monk to spread Buddha Dharma in the United States who put out the "God-Conception of Buddhism" that we use to challenge all criminals and professional scam artists from all organized religions trying to sell what they do not know nor have based on "Fear" in perpetuating masters-slaves relationships contrary to the "enlighten" Human Right that they do not know nor have yet blah blah blah to bully humanity. This is so when that student X asked student Y in 1978 if he looks like the picture of Soyen Shaku because "whatever Soyen could not say at his time" instantly appeared in his mind when he accidentally read 1893 Shaku speech in the World Parliament of Religions.
Leaving aside all esoteric feelings due to no proof and not practical, past qualities if there were must be visibly manifested and relevant to the present living. What important are (1) how to present discovered Truths as the working of natural laws, (2) reproducible process and appropriate conditions for others to verify them so they can value-add their "secret sauces" to make the trail easier and more enjoyable in reaching verifiable signed posts, and from one signed post to another. It is not a Pathless Land as stated by Krishnamurti in observing many unsuccessful attempts from past explorers: Gotama, Nagarjuna, Asanga, HuiNeng, Krishnamurti himself. Here is a brief description - a modified form of Zen's Ox Herding Pictures - taken from detailed scientific proof to be presented with PrajnaTIP in Sound (and Light):
- At Home on the foundation of Kindness and Compassion
- Right Effort augmented by BudhAI, an integration of graph technologies from open sources (Cayley using schema.org types + HashGraph + TensorFlow Recommendation Engine + Raft protocol)
- Taming The Ox - KhaiPhong
- Riding The Ox - PrajnaLand
- Nothingness - VerifiableEmptiness
- The Source - Favourable conditions for vibrant living organisms
- AwakeningBudh - Science of Consciousness at both micro and macro levels
The process is based on (1) the Buddha Nature - a corollary of Gotama Living axiom - innately exists in most people, capable to know the right and unworthy relevant to present moment, and (2) one's Quality of the Consciousness can only be changed via Doing and Learning in present living. The first part steps out of 1000's years of Buddhist Sangha upside-down, starting right from one's level of Right Understanding and Right Motivation in the Prajna division of Gotama's Noble eightfold Path. It turns every moment and activity into a moment of active Reflection, and Meditation according to HuiNeng when Inner Peace / Samadhi / Intensity of Attention becomes innate in one's activities. The second part turns Gotama's snap shot approach into the dynamic state and stock of the driving force behind one's Volition / Freewill / Sankhara in consciously applying Gotama's Mindfulness and Prajna[D21] throughout actual living.
At Home means no mask. knowing one's strength / weakness and what need to be done to optimally make one's Life Easier and Happier. The foundation of Kindness and Compassion is beyond Word/Image and Thought of propaganda to drive all activities and relationships since only at this sensitivity of the True Heart, one can have a wider view of existence of 1 + 1 > 2. It goes beyond all beautiful words to critically look at the bottom line of activities for a possible Right Effort. it has the base in Gotama's Charter of Free Inquiry - Kalama Sutta[D22] - and commonly known as the practicality of Wise Việt (Minh Triết Việt)
The Right Effort embraces both Alertness and Awareness - the state and stock of one's Prajna - to go beyond unhealthy competition, touching one's actual ability to bring something Real to the table relevant to one's present situation. It is augmented by BudhAI - the blueprint for Searches, Relationships, Recommendations, and Self-Insights - with Normative Intelligence and Machine Learning - to in-part discover and in-part create the Real You[R10].
In taming the ox, KhaiPhong technologies will be introduced to (1) Sense the driving force of the Volition / Freewill at the source of thought to properly manage oneself, (2) Dissolve outdated marks and binding / clinging forces (such as fears, uncontrollable urges, etc) to properly see "Thing-As-It-Is" without any tainted judgement, nor bias driving motivation, nor any conflict to directly access Oneness / Thing-As-It-Is without Conflict, and (3) Open latent Potentiality to reclaim one's Unique Comparative Advantages in Making Life Easier and Happier.
In riding the ox, appropriate conditions favourable for Gradual Cultivation and Sudden Awakening will be introduced in all activities and relationships since once the core technologies of KhaiPhong are known, everyone can ride on its aesthetic Inner Peace to professionally manifest required facilities conducive for the growth in state and stock of Prajna. These facilities make happened the rejuvenation and reborn in releasing stresses via Emptying the Contents and Expanding Space.
Knowing the Nothingness and accessing to the Source, we - sustainable at later stage by transparent and accountable bodies of Budh Counselors - discover natural laws, enabling heavy lifting for most practitioners directly accessing different depths of Right Inner Peace, known as Gotama recorded nine stages of meditation that up to 2017, most Buddhist monks / nuns / followers cannot touch due to the upside-down of his Noble eightfold Path. Having the Transcendental states, one has face-to-face with Natural Purification to know Insight into the Emptiness and dissolution of outdated marks[D42]. One will naturally make this Insight manifested through one's professional skill and comparative advantages to be a part in changing oneself and the world. This practicalizes HuiNeng Samadhi-Prajna - not yet delivered by anyone up until 2017 - in all daily activities that HuiNeng did not have enough time when he was a monk. While waiting for the "Heavy Lifting of Samadhi" via discovered natural laws, one can start right from the state and stock of one's Prajna - capable to know the Right and Unworthy relevant to one's present moment, exactly as the order of Gotama's Noble eightfold Path and/or his "Charter of Free Inquiry - Tư-duy Tự-do" in the Kalamas Sutta[D22] for the criterion of "Right and Wrong".
Finally, applying modern functional programming and gossip of the Gossip protocol to fairly establish the state of community consensus at cross-devices, cross-Operating-Systems, cross-networks and agnostic cloud-services where each data point is a function in measurable normative and positive values derived from relationships, we enable the science of consciousness take the footstep of and combine with modern economics at both micro and macro levels. For example, the simplest state of community consensus is the bidding price for an aggregate item pulled together from community demand at the threshold level of committed buyers and sellers. Similarly, given current existing facilities and local cultural characteristics (objects / targets), we can estimate the spending amount and satisfaction of different types of tourists (subjects / sources) to an event Type (predicate / relationship) from the estimated function (method). Via Big-Data simulation, we can detect and strategically attract optimal subjects / sources while developing required features of targets / infrastructures for higher value adds in our Natural Comparative Advantages.
Best Governance and Transparent Management on behalf of communities and the mass can become more Realities under scientific evidenced-based measurable results rather than cheating intelligence based on "bullying and sticks" of all isms. At the micro level, Normative Intelligence and Machine Learning enable one know more about oneself not only from past behaviours exploited by all slavery systems including "spiritual slavery" but also the KhaiPhong in accumulated Normative Value called the state and stock of one's Prajna. You in-part Discover and in-part Create the Real You, being the driving force to change both production and consumption in your Value of the Values according to the Essence of the Right Effort in your Continuity of the Consciousness where your Inner Circle and circle of inner circles are active parts in discovering natural laws, Making Life Easier and Happier.
At macro level, major patterns can be detected, simulated and managed toward the national strategic direction in Change Management which has been pioneered in the Vietnamese 1945 August Uprising. The Change Management can be scientifically stated that "In any situation / condition / manifestation", things As-It-Is according to Dependent Nature - good or bad including "God Willing" - are changing (viparinama-dukkha) and conditioned (sankhara-dukkha), definitely not forever. In that changing and conditioned existence, there are Always factors being changed according to one's influences and/or by consciously directed actions. Strategically knowing these factors one can change oneself due to natural laws of Action-Reaction and the environment one a part, being an active member toward a "Right Effort" according to "Human Nature" to democratize the "Human Right" from the Unity of Oneness, not the indoctrinated conflicting duality levels imposed by all isms in thousands years of dark human periods experiencing extreme sufferings in billions lives known by all modern people.
The ability to identify and make happened these strategic long and short term factors depends on the aggregate normative wisdom (Prajna) of the core management team, augmented with available tools in machine-learning coming from Big Data in its modeling, simulations, and what-if policy analyses. Technologies in measurable economic hard facts and machine learning have been evolving for more than 50 years and mostly open sources while each organization concentrates/bets on what most important to its relevant concerns. When these technologies together with "Normative Intelligence" are available to the mass, people will not be easily cheated by "cunning intelligence" from criminals and professional scam artists for their "Personal Glorifications", messing up their own lives and the lives of others as evidenced in the 70+ years aftermath of the "The Vietnamese August Uprising for Independence and "Enlighten" Human Rights as exploring in Latin humanitas".
The normative intelligence required for sudden "breakthrough" and/or "innovation" such as the breakthrough of Lý Công Uẩn and the Zen monk Vạn Hạnh[R7.1] in an effortless "coup d'état" and moving the Vietnamese capital to present-day Hanoi to benefit many generations to come is not any more the "Pathless Land" but "scientifically cultivable". Vietnam may have a unique opportunity and one step ahead in synthesizing the thesis of "Capitalism" driven by Grasping both material and spiritual dominances, versus the anti-thesis of "Communism" driven by a "painted utopia" and exploited by "cunning intelligence" on the same foundation of "Greed" - serving masters-slaves relationships - into a sustainable higher playground since most of its citizens personally have direct experience with these two extremes. They solidly stand on 4000+ years of cultural aspects about What Count[R23] in "Making Life Easier and Happier". With the "Right Understanding" and "Right Motivation" driven by "Prajna / Wisdom / Conscience" innate in everyone's Buddha Nature and known by the mass where the means can be changed and/or modified, but the deliverable target - whatever the target such as Lucifer, Allah, God, Resurrection, the Kingdom of God from within, Nirvana, Liberation, Consciousness, etc - that count will effortlessly weed out religious criminals and professional scam artists, messing up Humanity with billions lives in unnecessary Sufferings as evidenced in human dark era of the past.
Two most important factors in this Science of the Consciousness are (1) measurable wisdoms of the leaders relevant to the organization targets (Vision - Mission - Execution) are not lost but accumulated in machine-learning to be used by the company new management, (2) the KhaiPhong Consciousness Technologies - once introduced to the mass - enable everyone an Agent of Changes via measurable normative and positive values of relationships to make happened the "Unity Process" of living and development from people, by people and for people to practicalize the three principles of Trần Quốc Tuấn[R7.4] in Right Effort and Wrong Effort or Trần Thái Tông "hữu niệm / vô niệm - thought / wu-nien"[R7.3]. The technologies are applicable to all individuals, organizations, communities, industries, regional and national strategic developments.
These technologies will turn all aspects of Normative Intelligence from the "Pathless Land of an Art" where dictatorship / corruption / scam can spread into scientific processes where evidenced-based and measurable hard facts are the foundation for Accountability and Transparency - thanks to the injection of Normative Value into Artificial Intelligence - in discovering natural laws, Making Life Easier and Happier. It is similar to but far above "political economy / économie politique" first appeared in France in 1615 with the well-known book by Antoine de Montchrétien, Traité de l’economie politique. Since then, scientific economic management plays a dominant role in all political platforms. Similarly, scientific approach in Consciousness will effortlessly clean up the "spiritual bullying" based on Fear exploited by criminals and professional scam artists who destroy their lives and others based on Greed and Ignorance.
The Normative Playground built from required security to drill down existing relationships and Big Data available from any person, organization with current and existing activities and relationships is a possible Reality. Moving along the eastward then southward shifting demand curve of knowing more about oneself and organization in all strategic close encounters, the consciousness technologies in Open Innovations can drive down the high cost of custom development into a low or zero cost supply curve due to no barrier of entries available to the mass to democratize the "Buddha Nature" toward Right Living / Effort from people, by people and for people. The new Era of the KhaiPhong may soon be a Reality with deliverable crossbreed between Effortless Action (Chinese Wei-Wu-Wei) and Indian Right Inner Peace (Samma-Samadhi).
[2.3] The Right-Side-Up of the Noble eightfold Path
The word 'Mind' has been used in the entire Buddhist history up to 2017 to mean different things at different places - contradicting one another in the well-known theory of Mind[R10], No-Mind[R5.1], Consciousness-Only[D35] - since the author / user does not explore deep enough, still at patch works to know what he/she talks. Using scientific approach, we define Mind based on the attributes influencing the Consciousness of 'Thing-As-It-Is' at the Present Moment, comprising of Brain Intelligence, Instinct (the sixth sense) and wider perspective of ComPassion Vibration from the Heart for 'the Right Thing to do' from "Prajna (Wisdom) the seventh sense" which embraces relevant involved parties in the Totality of Existence, capable to get the "Pulse" and optimal "Solution" of a very complex issue whose outcome is the result of multi-parties strategies from conflicting negotiable Thing-As-It-Is.
In investigation of the Mind, we can scientifically investigate its components and their interactions. It has been proved that the Mind (Brain Intelligence, Instinct, ComPassion Vibration, Prajna) uses the physical neurons to partially create itself[R10]. Reincarnation is that recreation process according to Likes-attract-Likes and Actions-Reactions with possible external influence - one's Inner Circle and circles of inner circles - for a new utility vessel in one's Continuity of the Consciousness. In that way, the new Science of Mind is the investigations of natural laws governing Instinct, Brain Intelligence, ComPassion, Prajna to serve a wider perspective theoretical foundation.
O Mahamati, my doctrine of no-birth and no-annihilation is not the same as that held by the philosophers, nor as the doctrine of birth and permanence ... But mine is that is neither born nor transformed. Mine is above the category of being and non-being, and abandoning [the notion of] birth and destruction. I talk of that which is neither existence nor non-existence,
The 'Buddha argument' (obviously not at the time of the Buddha being with his Sangha) - presented in Lankavatara[D32] - is consistent with set and Consciousness of the consciousness theory as presented in patch C of Figure 2. We reveal from version 1.1 'A Bird View of Who I Am' esoteric influences of the three dark forces and an orchestration of the higher Esoretic Circle. The Buddhist Mahayana texts - appearing several hundreds years after historical Gotama that no one knows their origins - may come from both esoteric saboteurs and students in the AwakeningBudh Movement.
Lankavatara was the only text personally handed down by Bodhidharma[D32.1], the 28th Patriarch of Indian Buddhism and first Chinese Patriarch to signify the unbroken Lineage from Gotama to HuiNeng, the sixth Patriarch. Yet, the Zen tradition is based on direct access to Prajna based on Diamond Sutra and further developed into the Heart Sutra[R2]. XuanZang (HsuanTsang) popularized the Prajna and Consciousness-Only systems with his tremendous Personal Effort relying on the Prajna Paramita Hridaya (Heart Sutra) for the Noble Quest of the Dharma Worthy Living and Sharing. Current state and stock of Prajna innate in each individual is also the starting point of Gotama model to drive his Inner Quest from "Suffering Dukkha" to "Thing-As-It-Is Dukkha" under the Noble eightfold Path: Right Understanding and Right Motivation in one's dynamic Learning and Doing in the Continuity of the Consciousness.
Reconnecting Prajna back to the "Oneness / Thing-As-It-Is without Conflict" in Lankavatara[D32] handed down by Bodhidharma with Gotama's signed posts of "Verifiable Emptiness"[D25] we basically investigate the mechanism and process where Prajna - of Right Understanding (stock of Samadhi) and Right Motivation (Prajna / state of samadhi) in the first division of the Noble eightfold Path - can manifest from the "Oneness / Sunyata / Detachment-Born" via the signed posts of "Verifiable Emptiness" discovered by Gotama. This may be the whole practical picture in its Totality.
The Tranquillity of Right Inner Peace - recorded by Gotama after recovering his experience as a child - is precisely defined in Lankavatara[D32]“
People grasping their own shadows of discrimination, uphold the discrimination of dharma and adharma, and failing to carry out the abandonment of the dualism, they go on discriminating and never attain tranquillity. By Tranquillity is mean oneness, and oneness gives birth to the highest samadhi, which is gained by entering into the womb of Tathagatahood, which is the realm of supreme wisdom realized in one's inmost self;
The Gateway to "Oneness / Thing-As-It-Is without Conflict" - beyond conflicting forces of conditioned relative existence - is the base for our definition of Right Mindfulness[D12] which is the extension of the Buddhist Right Mindfulness (Chánh Niệm) to the Dependent Nature having the Infusion of the Perfected Nature outside all conditioned boxes to see Thing As It Is. That definition is beyond what HuiNeng described as Wu-Nien (which is a moment of utter silence Beyond-Thought then sharp Fresh and Functional thought) and the state of Samadhi-Prajna toward a Vibrant living organism in an ecosystem. It is an aggregate such as family, business, association, community, country and the World having sustainable Created Values. Right Mindfulness is a natural extension of Gotama's Mindfulness on the "mental qualities"[D24] of an aggregate where one is a part or interested in.
Knowing oneself and being "At Home" is the authentic Zen tradition advocated by Bodhidharma (Directly targeted the True Heart - Chân Tâm Trực Chỉ) and HuiNeng (Beyond Thought, No Mark, Detachment Born, Prajna - Vô Tướng, Vô Vết, Vô Trụ, Bát Nhã), but messed up by the entire zen tradition within the game of conditioned Word and clinging Thought, rather than beyond 'Binding Word' if one knows the Equanimity of Verifiable Emptiness pegged by Gotama as the base of his Mindfulness[D28], and beyond 'Clinging Thought' if one knows the Purity of Verifiable Emptiness, accessing the Expanding Space where the boundary of one's physical body disappeared and Expanding Consciousness to actually know One a part of the Whole - the Whole in One, reaching the Sunyata Nothingness as illustrated in the eighth stage of Ox Herding Pictures (Figure 8) and Beyond (Figure 9 and Figure 10).
In this wider perspective, one knows more about oneself and the Essence of the Right Living / Effort to be practical in daily activities at the Present Moment. One becomes an Agent of Changes, dynamically adjusting the Realities caused by imagination toward Actualities (Figure 1) to Change oneself and the environment one a part toward What Count[R23]. The Buddhist Sangha path of development has indoctrinated its followers in the narrow box of its Ethical Code and Concentration, no difference from indoctrinations claimed by Infallible popes of the Roman Catholic Church to reduce human Conscience into Pavlov dog and obeying lamb. Worse is that these conditioned frameworks of Virtue and Stability are contradicting one another in divisional organized religions to create more unnecessary sufferings rather than Actual Virtue and Stability coming directly from Prajna of Right Understanding and Right motivation to dynamically support Actual Living beyond Word/Image and Thought, commonly known as Conscience.
Scientific investigations at both theoretical and empirical verifications are the way to weed out attempted sabotages at the bottom line. It is the essence of Ontological Systems under Clusters of Open Innovation Network (COIN) to turn Gotama's model/process in the 'Noble Eightfold Path' into [ Plan >< Execution >< Feedback ] applicable to all human Activities and Issues - ranging from a simple shopping list to strategic National Security that requires group Intelligence - driven by rule-based assumptions coming from the Buddha Nature capable to know the Right and Unworthy relevant to one's present moment. We can learn quite a lot from modern Science - especially in rapid innovations via Information Communication Technology (ICT) - when separation of concerns such as content creations, distributions, and the processes of "Know-How" are empowered via Transparent Open Sources at the grassroots, returning the driving forces back to individual personal level. The processes of "Know-How" are unique Value-Adds from AwakeningBudh Movement to know more about oneself in Making Life Easier and Happier, materializing Trần Quốc Tuấn (1228–1300)[R7.4] Principle of Right Effort according to Human Nature: "All Efforts come from people, by people, and for people to serve the practicality at the bottom line of Right Effort".
Back to the connection between Prajna and the Oneness via signed posts of Gotama Verifiable Emptiness[D25], we have connected the Heart Sutra with Gotama's descriptions of his signed posts[R2]. In that connection, one can start from any sense (ear, mind, eye, nose, tongue, body) or entanglement (form, feeling, perception, impulse, consciousness) with "Detachment-Born", entering the "Gateway-to-Oneness / Thing-As-It-Is without Conflict" signed by Gotama as "Tranquillity", deepening into Mindfulness signed by Gotama as "Equanimity" into utter Silence called "Purity" by Gotama, etc. In the diving-in process, Natural Purification infused from the depths of "Verifiable Emptiness" purify one's senses[D26] from outdated Marks / Stresses to enable a "No-Mind-Enclosure / Completely Open Mind" to sense the vibrations of whatever one has an attention on. The power and effectiveness of the manifestation is proportional to the degree of Silence coming from the Purity of the Mind. Therefore "Purity of the Mind" is the foundation and correct driving force of Right Effort.
Gotama qualifies his mindfulness as the "Right Mindfulness" in the Noble eightfold Path if there is "Detachment-Born" before entering the Oneness[D28]. One can enter different depths of Inner Peace (Samadhi) without passing the required "Detachment-Born" such as Tantric Penetration via the lump of all entanglements together in "sex for required energy" or Faith via Aspiration in some external factor much larger than the "self". Without "Detachment-Born", the left brain is already there to claim its aesthetic Inner Peace. The effortless experience is lost. One has to assert "more concentration / effort" to overcome this barrier to move into a sex addict and/or religious fanatic.
Here we look at both the "state" and "stock" of accumulated Right Inner Peace, acting as soil where Prajna is the flower of Compassion tree deep rooted in Sunyata. We can talk about state and stock of Prajna, one level up from Right Inner Peace to be side-by-side with the "Right" in Gotama's Prajna division of the Noble eightfold Path - Right Understanding and Right Motivation - innately available at different depths inside each person. Therefore, without "Detachment-Born" there is not sufficient condition for a Right Mindfulness, qualified by Gotama, nor the "stock" accumulated from this "Gradual Cultivation" for a "Sudden Awaken then Awakening" that may happen any time any place since the process starts at what most relevant and important to you at the present moment to clearly see As It Is in everything, and consciously act according to What Count relevant to one's present moment.
This is in essence "the Right Understanding and Right Motivation for a Right Effort" in the Noble eightfold Path applicable in all activities and relationships of all life styles under all ages, transcending all differences, languages, and nationalities. The core issues of most meditations from all organized religions where Buddhism is a part are (1) lack of solid understanding and importance of "Detachment-Born - Vô Trụ" in a true spiritual path, (2) not properly prepared of inner power (state and stock of Prajna) for required "Mindfulness" qualified by Gotama at Equanimity state. The right solution - provided by the Science of KhaiPhong - must obviously address these two issues. Everything runs according to natural laws based on the state and stock of Prajna.
Back to the questions about the Third Truth "Cessation of Dukkha" and Buddhist Verifiable "Nirvana", we know at least three living students who actually know the state Gotama described as "the end of dukkha" where there is naturally / effortlessly "no outer breath" which is different from some forceful techniques to hold the breath via concentration, effort, and/or other external "mean". This personal verification supports the argument that momentary Nirvana is possible in the Right Conditions. It is momentary because the breath has to come back to support the on-going processes of living. Gotama definitely knew this state of "Thing-As-It-Is in Oneness / Thing-As-It-Is without Conflict" at the highest point of "Unmoving Sunyata" as described by HuiNeng. The "no outer breath" is the description of additional attribute of that state on top of what Gotama and HuiNeng had described to be there for public scrutinization.
The difference between "Suffering Dukkha" and "Thing-As-It-Is Dukkha" is actually measurable as the outcomes of "Wrong Effort" or "Right Effort" to measure both the depths and the breaths of one's Prajna in one's continuous Leaning and Doing. The statistically measurable Right or Wrong effort rides on Nagarjuna contribution - modernly expressed in set theory - to subjectively evaluate the degree of [Right / Wrong / both Right-Wrong / Not-Applicable] from evidenced-based feedback of each effort to timely change one's [ Plan >< Execution ]. Here ICT can help as the feedbacks from one's decision Sweet Spot since the outcome of any event has a certain probability, exactly as described in Diamond Sutra about the mind[R7]. So Ignorance or Prajna is evidenced-based measurable in the outcome of an effort. This measurable pattern is a planned KhaiPhong AI tool to supplement PrajnaTIPs technologies in enabling one direct access to different depths of "Verifiable Emptiness" for required power to see Thing As It Is in different specialized domains for deeper cultivation.
On the Verifiable meaning of Nirvana, we have the "quote" from Lankavatara Sutra[D32]:“
O Mahamati, by Nirvana I mean the seeing into the abode where the meaning [of existence] is understood in its truthfulness, the abandoning of all discrimination which takes place in the mind and what belongs to it, and the realization of the supreme wisdom which lies in the inmost consciousness of the Tathagatas - this I call Nirvana.
"The meaning [of existence] is understood in its truthfulness" is basically "Thing As It Is". "The abandoning of all discrimination" is not at the conditioned thought level as advocated by claimed Zen master such as "Don't Know Zen" from those not passing even the "Gateway-to-Oneness". It is basically the "Oneness / Thing-As-It-Is without Conflict" where one needs "Utter Silence" of all internal disturbances to sense the Core Issue of what one has an Intensity of Attention upon for an Optimum Solution toward What Count[R23]. Vạn Hạnh[R7.1], the teacher of Lý Công Uẩn who implemented his Vision moving the Vietnamese capital to present day Hanoi opening a new Era still valid 1000+ years later, actually demonstrated this ability in the complex military outcome of a Chinese invasion from the North, and "opportunity" from a diplomatic / military engagement with a Southern neighbour. This is the practicality of Efforts - applicable from national security to the development of regions, communities, industries, organizations, businesses, families, etc - driven by cultivable Prajna as flowers on Compassion tree deep rooted in invisible Sunyata.
To get to the point of utter silence for sensing the core issue and possible solution, it demands specialization and cultivation of Prajna from many who have natural comparative advantages in different areas. Depending on the depth in the state and stock of Prajna, the ability to arrive at an optimum solution proportionally varies with that depth in one's specialized field. Therefore, focussing on what most relevant to one's present moment, one has both natural Intensity of Attention in solving real Issues and most efficiently allocate scare resources to what most relevant to one's Learning and Doing.
The state of momentary Nirvana defined as "the end of Suffering" by Gotama is there to indicate the highest possible state a human body can reach and be verifiable. It is known as the state where one's "sense organs are purified (his faculties are exceptionally clear) / Natural Purification"[D26]. We assert and everyone can personally verify that this "Natural Purification" is available in all states of "Verifiable Emptiness" once entering the Gateway-to-Oneness / Thing-As-It-Is without Conflict. Hence, the practicality of different depths in "Verifiable Emptiness" is the Natural Purification outside the box of conditioned existence that one cannot "Purify the Mind" with a conditioned thought. It provides required power for Mindfulness and Prajna where traditional Buddhist Samatha cannot reach since Samatha's ultimate objective is only at the "Gateway-to-Oneness / Thing-As-It-Is without Conflict"[D23].
On the way out with "No Mind Enclosure / Completely Open Mind" as described in the Heart Sutra[R2], the mind observes its "Process of Inner Transformation" relevant and specific to its diving in to reach different depths of Verifiable Emptiness. This training of seeing and acting according to "Thing As It Is" is so practical due to relevant context plus the embedded power of "Right Inner Peace / Samma-Samadhi" that Buddhist Vipassana training cannot touch nor dream of.
Momentary Nirvana defined either as "the End of Suffering" by Gotama[D42] or "Thing-As-It-Is in Oneness / Thing-As-It-Is without Conflict" at different depths applicable in all realms in Lankavatara[D32] indicate the unending path of deepening and widening the state and stock of manifested Prajna on the Compassion tree deep rooted in Sunyata. It is similar to Dharmapala-XuanZang "Consciousness of the consciousness"[D18]. The enlighten one is always there to manifest the Compassion and Prajna that can satisfactorily answer in a "Reply to a Christian Critic" by Soyen Shaku[R6].
That momentary Nirvana also shows different depths in measurable probable outcome of an Effort at any point in time and place to show what one needs to cultivate as a part of Value Creation in "Making Life Easier and Happier". Contrasting the description of the Heart Sutra[R2] and the Gotama's nine Jhanas[D28], [D29], we see the Heart Sutra (1) starts with any entanglement (form, feeling, perception, impulse, consciousness) or any sense (eye, ear, nose, tongue, body, mind) to move into the utter silence of Purity while Gotana started at only one attribute of the mind, (2) Gotama recorded deeper absorptions from Infinite Space all the way to momentary Nirvana but Not the practicality these achievements can bring to daily activities while the Heart Sutra describes the "No Mind Enclosure" transcends beyond errors reaches Nirvana which is the Nirvana of "Thing-As-It-Is Dukkha in Oneness / Thing-As-It-Is without Conflict".
Riding on our esoteric understanding on the astral body and cosmic consciousness, we can tentatively construct a theoretical model for later investigations by qualified students. Each identifiable stream of consciousness can be considered as a container of consciousness, a unique Persona. Within that container, one can divide one's Realities into different identities (phân thân) to take care of different aspects of Learning and Doing, implemented with different emails. The key point is evolving into a solid Integrated Person via Emptiness to know more about oneself at the driving forces of Volition / Freewill / Sankhara. The dark esoteric forces have been out with re-organization from High Level Good (according to Natural Laws) Esoteric Forces that Humanity is entering a new Era of Consciousness Evolution that we wish no one will miss the Golden Opportunity.
Part of this reorganization is a "Consciousness System" to enable highly developed one see the quality of one's consciousness through Reflection and "Event Simulation" based on the "aggregate consciousness" to strategically manage the possible outcomes in Making Life Easier and Happier for the Whole. We model our system based on our consciousness "Know-How" using Information Communication Technology and Artificial Intelligence for Humanity. This wider perspective (1) takes Gotoma's discoveries out of a person's Inner Quest into practical benefits of actual living, (2) solidly establishes the Heart Sutra as a theoretical model for practical implementations Now in human realm and applicable in all other realms of existence including formless realms having no physical body, (3) debunks Buddhist Utopia and Gotama personal glorification as a Forever Buddha in his PariNirvana invented by those not even passing the "Gateway-to-Oneness / Thing-As-It-Is without Conflict".
At these angles, the Totality can be seen from [ ComPassion - Từ Bi, Detachment-Born - Vô Trụ, HonNhien, Prajna ] inspired by the Friendly and Happy Buddha (Maitreya) in contrast to Gotama's angle [ Dukkha - Khổ, Impermanence - Vô Thường, Not-Self - Vô Ngã, Nirvana - Niết Bàn ] to represent the two routes of development: the [ Heart >< Mind >< Sweat/Capital ] of modern-day living and [ the Buddhist Sangha ]. The KhaiPhong's measurable tools based on [ Beyond-Thought - Vô Tướng, No-Mark - Vô Vết, Detachment-Born - Vô Trụ, Samadhi-Prajna - Định Tuệ ], inspired by HuiNeng, is applicable to both routes, assisting practitioner clearly see the quality of one's consciousness and what needs to put a Right Effort on.
The path of Learning and Doing is still very long and hard. But we are lucky to have correct Path shared and contributed by many dedicated explorers. This correct Path is made known by Gotama having "Detachment-Born" as pre-requisite, then discovered natural laws for heavy lifting to enable one accessing the source of the Consciousness at different depths of Natural Purification for "qualified Mindfulness" to properly manage one's "karmic / binding / clinging" forces and "Prajna" to wipe off dominant outdated Marks in Making Life Easier and Happier. The scientific process is described in the Heart Sutra[R2] on the way diving in "Verifiable Emptiness" for "No-Mind-Enclosure / Completely Open Mind" with both cultivable state and stock of Prajna to see and act according to "Thing As it Is" in daily activities, applicable in all life styles.
3. Human Right and Modern Solutions
The Right Understanding and Right Motivation at deeper level come directly from hidden Buddhist contributions that we ask all concerned parties make them internationally accepted under Clusters of Open Innovations so a new Science of the Consciousness poking deeper into the "Human Nature" to shed significant light on the "Human Right" in a wider perspective of existence and its legal aspects to assure past dark human periods will not be repeated: (1) theoretical foundation of Detachment-Born which is the first signed post of Gotama's Verifiable Emptiness and the achievable manifestation of the four Boundless Qualities of the Mind (TỨ VÔ LƯỢNG TÂM) at the highest level of Detachment-Born (upekkhā - tâm xả) when one can transcend the "Observer" with some stability in cosmic Consciousness (Gotama verifiable Infinite Space and Infinite Consciousness), (2) the "VerifiableEmptiness" or nine stages of meditation up to the mountain-top momentary Nirvana achievable within a human body, (3) There is no chasm between Buddhist Madhyamaka and Consciousness-Only since there is a "Oneness / Thing-As-It-Is without Conflict" Awareness within the duality existence such as Kindness / Compassion, (4) realization of the Heart Sutra at different depths is the necessary and sufficient condition to understand the "Right" at different depths of the Noble eightfold Path.
The last hidden Buddhist contribution - the realization of the Heart Sutra corresponding the different depths of the "Right" in Gotama Noble eightfold Path - is the target where all practical facilities in the new Science of the Consciousness are leading to. It is
in all human activities covers both (1) inner cultivation for deeper state via HuiNeng Samadhi-Prajna or Gotama Right Mindfulness from abundant stock of "Right Inner Peace", and (2) outer manifestations of Right Speech, Rich Action, Right Livelihood where higher quality of inner Consciousness such as the four Boundless Qualities of the Mind (TỨ VÔ LƯỢNG TÂM - Kindness / mettā, Compasion / karuṇā, Joy / muditā, Detachment-Born / upekkhā) are visibly observable at the bottom line of Action/Reaction and Likes-attract-Likes from the true explorers / practitioners.
That "Right Understanding and Right Motivation" are correct / appropriate driving forces in all activities and aspects of all life styles - ranging from the life of a grown-up at all school grades to Ph.D. student, a recluse, a factory worker, a small merchant, a business / community leader, an intellectual, a diplomat, a political leader, etc. It is a sine qua non of Conscious Living, an outcome of Detachment-Born having natural Intensity-of-Attention to enable an Insight from "the Source, the nameless Tao, the Self Nature, the Perfected Nature, the Ultimate (Wider) Truth, the Kingdom of God from Within" floating up which can happen in any incidence or activity where consciousness beyond dream is a part. That conscious dynamic living is totally different from a narrow scope of "retarded living" based on concentration to narrow and keep the "infinite thoughts" in checked, advocated in Buddhist blah blah blah meditations, riding on the word "Right Mindfulness" known by Gotana that most monks/nuns do not know nor have since they cannot even pass the second stage of Gotama's "Gateway-to-Oneness / Thing-As-It-Is without Conflict".
Being a person, one's stream of consciousness is already equipped with sufficient "Prajna" for Right Understanding and Right Motivation. Esoterically, it is also influenced by entities in higher realms who must work according to natural laws just like "man" and the environment. The past middle realms of Buddhas, Gods, Allah, and their family lineages - driven by Greed, Anger, Ignorance - used their known Consciousness Technologies in "Wrong Efforts", causing unnecessary Sufferings in their own realms and humanity, leading to the master-slave cheating game of Greed implemented by Fear of one life time in monotheism. Many have been degenerated to the point of below human level for the mother nature to neutralize their steaming forces.
That is why Gotama started from everyone's quality of the consciousness - a minimum axiom of Worthy Living - in his Noble eightfold Path for further evolution that most monks / nuns are failed due to their "Pride" and "Delusion" of religious leaders having No real contribution at the bottom line, being slaved to their esoteric self-hallucinated masters (Buddhas, Bodhisattvas, Arhats or whatever the name you want to invent), falling far below current scientific quests of Human Nature and its Relations to Human Rights. The quests have significant implications on both legal and Natural Sciences at international level where the Science of the Consciousness - built on top of precious discoveries from past dedicated explorers mostly contributed from Buddhist hidden treasures - can significantly contribute in Making Life Easier and Happier. The can-do positive side of Prajna started by Gotama in the Noble eightfold Path is reverse below the negative side of humanity tainted senses driven by monk / nun opportunists who dare not go beyond their confined suffering box while boosting their possible liberation.
The Latin "humanitas" has three meanings: the biological existence of the species, the broader sense of the various moral concepts of Enlightenment humanism, and the idea of humans’ inherent ability to have compassion for other humans. It implies that human beings function under the law and have Rights as humans or Human Rights. In our proposed Science of the Consciousness with deliverable technologies for heavy-lifting, the "broader sense of the various moral concepts of Enlightenment humanism" is Not any more a concept at thought level of divisional conflicting moral values enforced by all organized religions and "isms", but an Actuality - beyond Word / Image / Thought - that can be observable, testable and achievable. Thought is a mean to point to something precious within the reach of humanity. It opens up a new vista of Kindness (Samaritan) and ComPassion (Love) which is beyond thought but framed by the criminals in Roman Catholic Church for its doctrine to violently execute all those who dare to go beyond its hearsay which had generated counter actions in both forms of "religions" and "isms".
That outside-the-box beyond conditioned thoughts toward "Thing As It Is" is Only the beginning due to stagnation caused by the current Buddhism in its 2500+ years of turning upside-down Gotama discoveries. Under the "Science of the Consciousness" - initially contributed if the time is Right by identified living students - the AwakeningBudh with its specializations under PrajnaTIP of deliverable technologies to Transcend both Observed and the Observer of sustainable innumerable activities of What Count[R23]. There are enough qualified living students making up a quorum to train the trainers for certified Equanimity Mind and Purity Mind for sustainable resources in widening and deepening the Science of the Consciousness with or without the initial qualified Counselors.
Prajna is a light and Ignorance is a darkness which does not actually exist. Ignorance (Avijja) is only a veil tainted by your outdated marks and unwholesome desires leading toward unnecessary sufferings. You cannot destroy the darkness with another darkness of your current "conditioned mess", no matter who you are. But with a light from your innate Buddha Nature or Conscience, the darkness will be effortlessly disappeared. This is a wide opening door - from current darkness to accessible light - waiting for those who have the courage to change themselves, or impersonally wiped out in the degeneration according to natural law as fully explained by Gotama in terms of light oil floating up at the surface of water or heavy rock sinking to the bottom where no rituals from degenerated monks / priests / nuns can make a difference even for themselves[D30].
In Agent of Changes we prove that Kindness and Compassion form a solid foundation for one's Right Effort - driven by Right Understanding and Right Motivation - in all activities. It (1) provides favourable environment for one and the surrounding community evolution as one vibrant intelligent living organism, (2) enables hand-on opportunities for one's cultivation in sensing complex interactions between one and the environment at any moment, (3) assure supporting and sustainable communities wherever one happens to be.
It is in fact the foundation for the manifestations of the above described aesthetic processes such as (1) dissolving the contents, (2) breaking the Relative Truth to the Ultimate (Wider) Truth, (3) accessing the source of Perfected Nature / the kingdom of God - Allah for rejuvenation and reborn from stressful activities
Those having the opportunities to know more about themselves in "Kindness and Compassion" - just like the Good Samaritan[R16] mentioned in only one of the Canonical gospels, but the most significant factor accepted by almost all Christians or None-Christians - need to appreciate the position they are in since they cannot carry the material wealth beyond current life time. What will stay with them is the Quality of the Consciousness that can be changed only at the Presence via the impact of Living and Doing which impresses on the seventh and eighth Consciousness layers according to Buddhist Consciousness-Only in exposing the Nature of Thing-As-It-Is according to the working of Natural laws. It is "Not the Grace" exposed in masters-slaves relationships to inflate one's ego - including God's Ego since all manifestations must be changed proven by the second law of thermodynamics - that causes significant degeneration of many highly evolved beings we esoterically know in the New World Order.
Once the inner "Kindness and Compassion" is conjoined with the "Righteousness or Prajna" one's decisions are mostly "Right" driven by Right Understanding and Right Motivation or the Prajna division of Gotama's Noble eightfold Path. Only when members of any community reaching a critical mass of 1% to 7% have this "Cultural Right" - capable to sense the driving force behind one's Volition to properly manage one's Realities - the "Human Rights according to Natural Laws" can be sustainable as stated in the first Fundamental Principle[R7] from Trần Hưng Đạo[R7.4]: "Kindness and Compassion once favourably developed in any community, that community can act as a single intelligent unit for a common cause, benefiting all involved parties". It is the realization of "the Good Samaritan"[R16] first suggested by Jesus without depending on any external force since each intelligent being is only one part of the whole.
In fact, this is an integrating technology to be introduced in PrajnaTIP in Kindness, using favourable conditions of "Kindness and Compassion" to generate infinite "wormholes" to short cut the routes to different levels of higher consciousness[R7.5]. It is different from the serial process personally verified by Gotama's in his nine stages of absorption, and does not require any formal environment for meditation, practical in daily activities for both normative and positive outcomes of What Count[R23]. Even the "Effort" may not be quite Right, the Right Motivation is there to timely and dynamically adjust the process due to Right Understanding and the Prajna guiding light.
In the reverse evolution from form to consciousness, one will find out that one is more than just observable manifestations - beyond all observed such as Health, Wealth, Power, Abundance, Sickness, Unfortunate, Misfortune - commonly known as the "Soul" or the unique bundle of consciousness, responsible for the quality of one's existence and the environment one a part due to the Dependent Nature of existence. In this discovery on the nature of Mind one can unravel the hidden potentialities commonly known as the sixth sense - a part of one's Instinct - and seventh sense, capable to get the "Pulse" of complex situation and possible optimal outcome to be influenced in "Making Life Easier and Happier" for one and the environment with lasting value for many generations to come as actually demonstrated by Vạn Hạnh and Lý Công Uẩn[R7.1]. These are the frontier in the Science and Economics of KhaiPhong.
The "Natural Purification" must come from 'Right Inner Peace' having "Detachment-Born" before entering the Gateway-to-Oneness / Thing-As-It-Is without Conflict to make sure that past mistakes of grasping the aesthetic state either via Faith or Miracle / Siddhi from the left brain will not be happened. It is HuiNeng Samadhi-Prajna having "No-Mark" once the action is completed whether its outcome is happy, miserable, or neutral. It is also the quality of "Dissolving" shared by Krishnamurti[R6.3] via Intensity of Attention. It is different from ET[R20] technology of "Choosing Realities" or from Infinite Though Bodhisattva[D44.1] of never ending chatting mind. The Right Inner Peace moves toward Sunyata Nothingness, making happened the rejuvenation and reborn of all things, enabling "Life Easier and Happier" wherever one happens to be.
