Virupa: Lada

By detaching itself from the duality
of observation and observer,
the mind achieves self-liberation
from division;

By thus smashing the contrived practitioner,
the mind frees itself from striving and seeking;

By discarding the concern for the fruit
of inner development, the meditator
unshackles himself from hope and fear;

By eliminating the sense of the "self" or the "I",
the mind emerges victorious in its battle
against inner adversaries;

By dismantling the clinging to substance,
the meditator will gain liberation from
both samsara and nirvana.

Completely understand. Sounds great. How the heck do you do it?

Hi anonymous friend from California.

The genuine practitioner Virupa is hinting to you how to ESTABLISH the mind in its own nature.

If you take this blog seriously, being a reflection of the practice of a supposed genuine practitioner (myself), then you will find the answer to your question.

This particular instruction, related to LADA, is for practitioners who have already had a DIRECT experience of the nature of mind.

If this is not your case, then you should go to the basic practices as exposed in this blog.

If your practice is genuine, Lada will come across your path at the proper time.

Dohas from genuine practitioners are like mathematical equations to physicists.

You can only really understand them if you have had genuine experiences and reached a good level of INSIGHT.

Have a good GENUINE practice.
