Alaya

67865The alaya, the ultimate basis of all (Tib. kun gzhi) —not to be confused with the alaya vijnana, the storehouse consciousness— affirms non-duality in diversity and manifests diversity in non-duality. This is not a play on words.

Non-duality in diversity is the recognition that all apparent differences ultimately are of one taste, the taste of enlightenment.

Diversity in non-duality is the unhindered display of infinite possibility arising from enlightenment. —TN

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.
