Mindfull Meditation from Eastern Inner Science Tradition
This chapter explains the tradition of mindfulness meditations from the point of view of Eastern Inner Science tradition in accordance with Nalanda university as described in Unity in Duality® by Tarab Tulku, a Buddhist scholar who sought to explain them in secular terms.
How do we perceive and utilise our emotions? Why do emotions arise and can we find comfort in their energy?
Ancient Tibetan Dream Wisdom
Tarab Tulku explains his association and knowledge of Dream wisdom.
Dream work has been an integral part of the Tibetan culture, extending back to Dream Yoga from the Tantras (6th/7th. Century) and partly from the Bön tradition of Tibet and even before. A practice far removed from our western rationale, yet an integral part of Tarab Tulku’s life from a very young age which he has made accessible for us.
Death and Rebirth as a Natural Pulsation of Existence
We often see birth as a beginning and death as the end. The Buddhist view however is circular. So, there is a connection between the end of something and a new arising, there is no break in between. Any kind of phenomenon and existence, is transitory, implying that it is subject to change, to continuous change. The change is never in a straight line, always attaining a circular movement.
A Buddhist perspective on lucid dreaming
Tarab Tulku’s guidance into the ancient way of connecting with our dream state. A world away from modern cultures way we use dream/meditative states.
Tarab Tulku: “Within the Buddhist Tantric tradition there is great emphasis on using the dream state of being for developmental ends. There exists a special practice called “dream yoga,” which in the West mainly has been presented as one of the “Six Doctrines of Naropa.” The dream yoga is a high meditation practice which is performed by the practitioner within the so-called lucid dream state.“
Introduction to Pratityasamutpada/ Tendrel/ Unity in Duality/ Interrelated Nature of Existence
The ancient knowledge underlying Unity in Duality derives from the Indian academic tradition of Nalanda. Tarab Tulku presents the universal aspects of this ancient and most extraordinary knowledge of Indo-Tibetan origin, which has survived in Tibet. The UD view encompasses the ancient Inner Science of Mind and Existence including Personal Development, Art-of-Relating and Spiritual Application. By applying UD methods, we regain a feeling of self-referentiality, naturally facilitating actions of body, speech, mind, respect for others as well as nature.
Unity in Duality Introduced through an exposition of Tendrel
“If one finds the origin of the beginning of the beginning one has found the key to the interrelated nature of everything.” Tarab Tulku Rinpoche XI
His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama has clearly stated the connection between the ancient wisdom of Buddhism and modern science. To date he has held 25 conferences on this subject matter. Introduced science education in Tibetan Buddhist monastic colleges and academic centres. The inner science of Buddhism shares a common objective: to serve humanity and to create a better understanding of reality. Science offers powerful tools for understanding the interconnectedness of all phenomena, and that such an understanding provides an essential rationale for ethical behaviour and the protection of the environment.
Questions to Tarab Tulku Rinpoche about the common basis of Eastern wisdom tradition and western science, about their future collaboration, as well as about globalisation and the consequences of an application of universal knowledge to personal development.
