In a discussion with Gautam Buddha recently, he explained to me a little about the process he used. He showed in my subtle head how it was done by him. This is a brute-force meditation procedure where the mind is forced to cease its shenanigans. From what he showed, I do not see how the average person, in fact even the average ascetic can use that method. It is just not possible for an ordinary spirit to do that outright just like that. First of all what is written in the Pali cannon literature does not have enough details of the practice. The results he got from his methods are there but the fine print about what he actually did within the mind is not given in detail. This is not unusual because it is common for accomplished ascetic not to leave details of their meditation. His disciples’ literature has lead-ons and indications but there is nothing in it like what he explained and showed me practically. This means that in Buddhism the actual methods were not written down. The conceptional mental approach and emotional fronting is given by the actual mental maneuvers used is not detailed
Of course I may be mistaken on this. If I am then I will accept the corrections. First of all while Patanjali listed eight part to yoga and Gorakshnath Mahayogin listed 6 parts which are the six higher states of what Patanjali presented, Buddha showed me one method for reaching samadhi and divine eye perception and that is all he offered.
What is that method?
It is confrontation between the core-self and the imagining, reasoning faculty of the mind, whereby the core-self confronts that faculty and orders it to instantly cease its shenanigans. The self then focuses into that faculty and must do so for hours at a time for days, weeks, months or years to develop the divine eye, which he said it necessary if one is to go further.
This is why I said above that the average ascetic even cannot use this method because of the inability to confront the analytical faculty. Where is it in the mind? How is it confronted? What would one do if it ignores the request for it to ceases trivial thought/memory operations?
How does the self develop the power to confront the spontaneous and quite natural operations of the mind, which normally ignores the request of the self?
Order your mind to cease developing a memory?
Does the mind stop as soon as you make the request or does it continue developing the idea anyway?
Buddha’s meditation begins by giving the mind an order to cease its operations and this is similar to Patanjali’s idea that yoga begins in earnest when the chittavritti mento-emotional operations are squelched. Buddha’s process it that the self focuses internally and orders the mind to cease operations, and the mind in turn does as it is told.
That is his system.
Can you do it?
Do you need time to develop this?
Do you need props like mantras and other comforters to lull the mind into submission?
Unusually encouraging! Great booster!
Lord Buddha is helping swing the gates of the final frontier wide open!
This Lord Buddha, who sees Lord Siva, who can also see Him!
This, the one Buddha displaying his undeniable and incontestable divinity!
As God He is another perfected yogi, yet so compassionate his life story is deceptively human as well.
His pointing in the right direction answers all the questions, and breaches space and time.
Because from the Divine posture; what he realizes in an instant, I don’t mind being on that right path even for ions to come.
This is a very warm and compassionate communication, almost a tease.
The challenge on the human remains unchanged, as implied in the questions.
The path of true yoga leads to divinity itself. Therefore this is heartfelt.
