During numerous lifetimes various cultures and people has evoked divine masters. Not always understood by the people, these masters practice and teachings where made to rites and ceremonies. What they supposed to have said and what they said was written down and people made the masters teachings to religions.
I became religious when I read about Buddhism. Taking part in a retreat in Denmark with a Bön Geshe made me a Bönpo practitioner. During many years I was struggling with my Ngondro practice without continuity. Now my view is that Ngondro is a monastic practice or to be made by a yogi in retreat. At least it’s not a practice I am able to accomplish.
I had to find another practice to preform during my day. In the morning when I woke up and stayed in bed, going down to the kitchen, making coffee, preparing breakfast, emtying the dishwasher, combing my daugheter hair, washing her before dressing her. I need a practice do while I sit at the table and eat, in front of the TV or driving the car.
This-I needs a practice without visualizations, chanting prayers, rituals or ceremonies, a practice that contains nothing (video on Youtube with Mooji) . The master in this video was introduced to me by a friend on Facebook. Anthony Paul Moo-Young, known as Mooji is a direct disciple of Sri Harilal Poonja, the renowned advaita master, or Papaji, as his followers called him.
Adavita master telling to be silent, still, being aware, staying with self and inquiring who is the seer.
Listening to numerous videos with Mooji; often when I was going for a rest during the day, led me to Sri Ramana Maharshi who was the guru of Sri Harilal Poonja. These advaita master speak and spoke in the same manner as many buddhist teacher.
Yongdzin Lopon Tenzin Namdak Rinpoche short explanation of the nature of mind has the same message.
Another was Luangpor Teean, a buddhist monk in Thailand I was reading about back in 2002 when I was on google groups discussing about buddhism.
A buddhist monk telling one to move and be aware of the movement of the body. To be with ourselves, to be with our body and mind, with our life and awareness.
It’s not for me to write about these Gurus, not for me to discuss if the are fully enlightened; it doe’s not ever matter to me. You can find out this for yourself. Remember you cant’ get more than an introduction. You can’t get it from books, webpages or from youtube. You can only get it by practice no matter what method you use.
