Lions Roar : July 2012
SHAMBHALA SUN JULY 2012 67 Glimpses of Mahayana Left: Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche in his role as a Mahayana teacher, holding the traditional teaching staff of a Zen master. Vajradhatu Seminary, 1981. A yearlong series of teachings to commemorate the 25th anniversary of the death of Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche, founder of the Shambhala Sun. PHOTOBYRAYELLIS OCEAN OF DHARMA “First there is warmth, then there is a sense of cutting neurosis, and finally, there is openness. It’s a three-part process but it’s very quick and abrupt. At that moment, there is an absence of struggle, a sense of warmth and freedom.” THE MAHAYANA BUDDHIST PATH IS a way of expanding, and the Mahayana teacher, the spiri- tual friend, acts as the entrance to that journey. Having made a relationship with a spiritual friend, that encourages us to relate not only with that one friend alone, but with many friends. In the language of the bodhisattva, the definition of friend is the idea of a guest. Many Mahayana scriptures speak of inviting all sentient beings as our guests. When we invite a guest, we have a sense of the importance of that relationship. Guests are usually fed specially cooked food and receive extra hospitality. The life of a bodhisattva is relating with all sentient beings as guests. The bodhisattva invites everyone as a guest, constantly offering a feast.
