wealth of being natural

So the five emotions, they create five different kinds of perception. And this are the five perceptions that we have to alter, we have to get rid of. Impure perception – okay bottom line is this. Impure perceptions comes because of impure subject, impure, or because of defiled or as I was telling you the example before because you a wearing a lot of filters. At the moment, let me put another way. You must have heard the word yoga. Yoga. Yoga in Tibetan is called naljor. Naljor. It is a very interesting word. Nal in the Tibetan word, nal actually means natural. Jor is a bit like a wealth. So it is a bit like a wealth of being natural. Okay. So yogis are considered those who have this wealth of being natural. Based on this if you ask: “What is prajna? What is wisdom? What is wisdom in Buddhism?” It is our mind that is in its height of being normal or natural. Completely natural mind is the wisdom, unaltered, unfabricated, uncontrived. Not manipulated. Completely left alone. That kind of mind is so called natural mind. And this is what we are trying to achieve. But normality, so called normality is very difficult to define. Because what is normal for some people are not necessary normal for others. What is – sublime beings, saints and the sublime beings, when they look at us, everything that we see they think is not normal. Not natural. And the reason is: When we perceive things all our perceptions are filtered, contrived, fabricated, through six kinds of filters, or the five kind of filters. Anger, passion, ignorance, jealousy, pride, and many many other emotions. All our perception is perceived through this kind of emotions. That’s why perceptions, everything what we see is abnormal. Everything what we see, our perception is not right. What we see, what we experience, is not what it is.
