THE FOUR SAMADHI OF THE FORMLESS REALM ( ) <ul><li>The next four meditation stages are in the formless realm, where the limitations of the body and the barriers and multiplicity of physical objects are transcended. One is emancipated from the limitations of the senses and the physical realm and one enters into the four realms of formlessness: </li></ul><ul><li>1. The samadhi of infinite space (the infinite form samadhi) </li></ul><ul><li>2. The samadhi of infinite consciousness </li></ul><ul><li>3. The samadhi of nothingness </li></ul><ul><li>4. The samadhi of neither thought nor no-thought </li></ul></li> <li> 5. THE FOUR SAMADHI OF THE FORMLESS REALM <ul><li>The four formless samadhi represent a stage of meditative attainment that no longer corresponds to the Realm of Form. The stage of attainment they represent surpasses the physical material world (Desire Realm) and even the energy world (Form Realm). </li></ul><ul><li>The four dhyana states correspond more to the aspect of our physical forms, whereas the formless absorptions have more correspondence to our psychological aspect. , , , </li></ul><ul><li>The four dhyana of the form realms and the four samadhi of the formless realms are different with respect to approach and there is no higher or lower states of meditation between them and among the four formless states. </li></ul></li> <li> 6. THE FOUR SAMADHI OF THE FORMLESS REALM <ul><li>Four Dhyana and Four Samadhi achieve cessation of the first five consciousness but very fine mental formation still exists in the sixth consciousness. The seventh consciousness still remains active in the samadhi of neither thought nor no thought. Total extinction hasnt yet achieved. The 7 th consciousness (ego attachment) is still active. </li></ul><ul><li>Finally there is the last meditation stage that achieves complete withdrawal or Attainment of Cessation </li></ul><ul><li>The ninth samadhi corresponds to the extinction stage of the Arhats achieved by cultivating great transcendental prajna wisdom, it is found only within the province of the Buddhist wisdom teachings because Buddhism cultivate great prajna transcendental wisdom while all other schools just emphasize samadhi. ( ) </li></ul></li> <li> 7. THE FOUR SAMADHI OF THE FORMLESS REALM <ul><li>1 st Dhyana - Not attach to five dusts (objects of five senses) and desires </li></ul><ul><li>2 nd Dhyana Applied cognitive thought is purified and experience very happy and joyful. </li></ul><ul><li>3 rd Dhyana Transform joy and happiness into spiritual bliss. </li></ul><ul><li>4 th Dhyana Achieve c omplete freedom from all subconscious disturbance, including suffering, joy and contentment. </li></ul><ul><li>4 Formless Samadhi Disappearing all forms; transform into pure mental and psychological state. </li></ul><ul><li>9 th Samadhi of Total Extinction The 7 th Manas Consciousness is extinguished. The 8 th consciousness is still active. </li></ul></li> <li> 8. <ul><li>The Vajra Prajn Pramit Sutra </li></ul>The Vajra Prajn Pramit Sutra </li> <li> 9. Chapter 12 Revering the Orthodox Teaching <ul><li> Moreover, Subhuti, you should know that all the gods, men, and asuras of the world should make offerings to any place at which even so few as four lines of verse from this Sutra are spoken and so forth, just as they would to a Buddhas shrine or temple; how much the more so to any place where people can completely receive, hold, read, and recite the Sutra. Subhuti, you should know that such people accomplish the foremost and most rare of dharmas. In any place the Sutra text is found, there is the Buddha or a reverent disciple. </li></ul></li> <li> 10. Chapter 13 Receiving &amp; Holding Thus Dharma <ul><li>Then Subhuti said to the Buddha, World Honored One, what should the Sutra be named? How should we respect and hold it? The Buddha told Subhuti, the name of the Sutra is Vajra Prajn Pramit. You should respect and hold it by that name. And why? Subhuti, Prajn Pramit is spoken of by the Buddha as no Prajn Pramit, therefore it is called Prajn Pramit. Subhuti, what do you think? Is there any Dharma spoken by the Tathgata? Subhuti said to the Buddha. World Honored One, nothing has been spoken by the Tathgata. </li></ul></li> <li> 11. Chapter 13 Receiving &amp; Holding Thus Dharma <ul><li> Subhuti, what do you think? Are all the motes of dust in three thousand great thousand world systems many? Subhuti said, Very many, World Honored One. Subhuti, all motes of dust are spoken of by the Tathgata as no motes of dust, therefore they are called motes of dust. The world systems are spoken of by the Tathgata as no world systems, therefore they are called world systems. </li></ul></li> <li> 12. Chapter 13 Receiving &amp; Holding Thus Dharma <ul><li> Subhuti, what do you think, can the Tathgata be seen by means of the thirty-two marks? No, World Honored One, one cannot see the Tathgata by means of the thirty-two marks. And why? The thirty-two marks are spoken of by the Tathgata as no thirty-two marks, therefore they are called thirty-two marks. Subhuti, a good man, or good woman, might give up his life as many times as there are grains of sand in the Ganges River; but if a person were to receive and hold even so few as four lines of verse of the sutra and explain them for others, his blessings would be greater. </li></ul></li> <li> 13. Chapter 14 Still Extinction Apart from Marks <ul><li>Then Subhuti, upon hearing the Sutra spoken, and deeply understanding its purport, wept and said to the Buddha, How rare, World Honored One, is this Sutra so profoundly spoken by the Buddha. From the time I obtained the wisdom eye until the present I have never before heard such a Sutra. World Honored One, if someone hears the Sutra with a pure heart of faith then he produces real mark. That person should be known to have accomplished the foremost and most rare merit and virtue. </li></ul></li> <li> 14. Chapter 14 Still Extinction Apart from Marks <ul><li> World Honored One, the real mark is no mark, therefore the Tathgata calls it the real mark. World Honored One, now as I hear this Sutra I believe, understand, receive, and hold it without difficulty. If in the future, in the last five hundred years, there are living beings who when they hear this Sutra believe, understand, receive, and hold it, such people will be foremost and most rare. And why? Such people will have no mark of self, no mark of others, no mark of living beings, and no mark of a life. And why? The mark of self is no mark. The mark of others, the mark of living beings, and the mark of a life are no marks. And why? Those who have relinquished all marks are called Buddhas. </li></ul></li> <li> 15. Four Line Gth <ul><li>All conditioned dharmas </li></ul><ul><li>Are like dreams, illusions, bubbles, shadows, </li></ul><ul><li>Like dew drops and a lightning flash. </li></ul><ul><li>Contemplate them thus. </li></ul><ul><li> , </li></ul><ul><li> , </li></ul><ul><li> , </li></ul></li> <li> 16. Four Line Gth <ul><li>If one sees me in form, </li></ul><ul><li>If one seeks me in sound, </li></ul><ul><li>He practices a deviant way </li></ul><ul><li>And cannot see the Tathgata. </li></ul><ul><li> , </li></ul><ul><li> , </li></ul><ul><li> , </li></ul></li> <li> 17. Four Line Gth <ul><li>All with marks is false and empty. </li></ul><ul><li>If you see all marks </li></ul><ul><li>As no marks </li></ul><ul><li>Then you see the Tathgata. </li></ul></li> <li> 18. Four Line Gth <ul><li>There is no mark of self, </li></ul><ul><li>And no mark of others, </li></ul><ul><li>No mark of living beings </li></ul><ul><li>And no mark of a life. </li></ul></li> <li> 19. </li> <li> 20. Blue Cliff Recod Case 27 The Body Exposed in the Automn Wind <ul><li>A monk asked Yun Men, When the tree withers and the leaves fall, then what? </li></ul><ul><li>Yun Men said, The body is exposed in the autumn (golden) wind. </li></ul></li> <li> 21. Blue Cliff Recod Case 27 The Body Exposed in the Automn Wind <ul><li>Since the question has the source, the answer is also in the same place. </li></ul><ul><li>The three statements should be distinguished; one arrow soars into the sky. </li></ul></li> <li> 22. Blue Cliff Recod Case 27 The Body Exposed in the Automn Wind <ul><li>Over the great plains, cold winds wail; in the endless sky, scattered showers drizzle. </li></ul><ul><li>Havent you seen the traveler at Shaolin, sitting long, yet to return? </li></ul><ul><li>Remaining quietly on Mount Bear Ears, one gathering. </li></ul></li> <li> 23. <ul><li>www.ChamShanTemple.org </li></ul><ul><li>www.shengguangshi.blogspot.com </li></ul><ul><li>[email_address] </li></ul><ul><li>Shengguang Shi </li></ul><ul><li>Tom Cheung </li></ul><ul><li>Kam Cheung </li></ul><ul><li>Dennis Yap </li></ul>Questions and Comments </li> <li> 24. </li> </ul>
