every perception is your mind

every perception is your mind

In the Vajrayana we talk about pure perception. To really see everything is pure, everything as a deity, everything as a mantra, impossible for now. In fact I have seen lot of people struggling, looking at your friend, and then thinking that: “Oh this my friend has sixteen arms, eight heads.” You are trying to think. That is actually not really the pure perception by the way. You are making up stories here. Actually the pure perception is rooted to this Mahayana concept that every perception is your mind. If you can just remember that, even simple things like if you and your husband or wife is having a really heated argument, really big dispute, really aggressive dispute, suddenly if you can remember that what I am seeing is actually my own perception. This will be like a cold water poured on a boiling water. Just to know that everything is your perception is a key to lots of enlightened qualities.
