Scorched Seeds

jf_jonangpa_blog_largeLiberation is not a place, another realm, or a destination.

It is an uprooting of the emotional afflictions in my mind,

so that they never arise in the future

and are purified within the expanse of suchness.

 

“Once the seeds are scorched, the fruit cannot arise.”

The final result of the exhaustion of the afflictive emotions

of the three realms of cyclic existence

is simply stainless awareness . That is liberation.

―Jetsun Taranatha

    Just two questions: The term “jetsun”, it’s meaning. Milarepa was called “jetsun”, so I think of
    yogis. Also the three realms, what is the meaning in this text? thank you. cc

    • Tashi Nyima says:

      Jetsun is a Tibetan title meaning “venerable” or “reverend.” It is a specific term applied to revered teachers of Buddhism. The three realms are the realm of desire (the one we inhabit now), the realm of form, and the formless realm.
