In the Domain of Illusion

Mipham-3That which operates with conceptual ideas is the ordinary mind,

whose characteristics include perceiver and perceived.

All that is conceived in this way is false

and will never touch upon the actual nature of reality.

Any idea of existent, inexistent, both or neither—

any such concept, however it’s conceived—

is still only a concept,

and whatever ideas we hold in mind,

they are still within the domain of illusion.

―Ju Mipham

About Tashi Nyima

I am a Dharma student, and aspire to be a companion on the path. I trust that these texts can offer a general approach and basic tools for practicing the Buddha's way to enlightenment. ||| Soy un estudiante del Dharma, y aspiro a ser un compañero en el sendero. Espero que estos textos ofrezcan a algunos un mapa general y herramientas básicas para la práctica del sendero a la iluminación que nos ofrece el Buda.

    Please tell us a bit about Ju Mipham, and recommend a text/book we can read on this topic. I like his presentation. “These are the facts. Think what you will, but these are the facts.” Cheryla

      There are many texts by and on Ju Mipham, available in translation. I recommend Mipam on Buddha-Nature: The Ground of the Nyingma Tradition, by Douglas S. Duckworth. Mipham’s view is not exactly like ours, but it is very close.
