13 DHARANI WORDS
13 DHARANI WORDS
Sakyamuni Buddha, or Mahàvairocana, from the Magnificent Royal Palace; over 2560 years ago, in Samadhi, Buddha contemplated the Three Realms and saw that all satvas have the same Buddha Nature as Buddhas, so why are they suffering. Buddha was willing to enter the reality-place of satvas to find out the cause of suffering, and discovered that “Life” is just the unreal combination of the Four Elements (Earth, Water, Wind, Fire) and the Twelve Nidànas.
Similarly, like after the Big Bang explosion that created the Universe – Time – Space. Through the complicated progression, from the True Nothingness Internal Atom, the Universe is expanding, and Electrons, Protons, Neutrons, atoms, stars, Galaxies are successively formed. So, the vast universe tapestry was woven. The Universe contains hundreds of billions of Galaxies, each Galaxy contains billions of stars, in the border area of some Galaxies, the Sun and humans appeared. Humans have the ability to know and marvel at the beauty and harmony of the Universe.
In fact, those Entities do not have True-Self
Therefore, by contemplating the Twelve Nidànas in two directions: Samsàra and Return to Nirvàna; Buddha explained the correlations between the Cause and Effect excluded the impact of 12 Links, each Link is not only Dharma to be the Cause (Arising Cause) but also Dharma to be produced by Causal Conditions. If the preaching-illumination of Cause and Effect, Deliverance and, Samsàra, then the Twelve Nidànas show that contemplation in the normal direction will lead to Samsàra; contemplation in the reverse direction will lead to Deliverance; Follow the direction of Returning to Nirvàna, the direction of the termination of the Beginning and Rise of the World of Samsàra-Sufferings and lead to Enlightenment-Liberation.
Buddha orients the path of Leaving Birth and Death as follow:
Starting from the Termination of Ignorance, the source of Craving, due to Leaving Craving terminating Ignorance completely, so Actions terminate; Actions terminate so Consciousness terminates; Consciousness terminates so Name-Form terminate; Name-Form terminate so the Six Spheres of faculties terminate; the Six Spheres of faculties terminate so Touch terminates; Touch terminates so Feeling terminates; Feeling terminates so Craving terminates; Craving terminates so the Grasping terminates; the Grasping terminates so Existence terminates; Existence terminates so Birth terminates; Birth terminates so Old Age, Death, Sorrow, Sadness, Distress, Grief, Trouble terminate. So, all the Suffering Skandhas terminate completely.
Following the direction of Returning to Nirvàna, Craving is the most important link in the Twelve Nidànas, together with the Universe in accordance with the Atomic Conservation Laws.
The link before Craving arises due to past Conditions ; therefore, we cannot Influence or Terminate it, from the Craving link, we can choose: either to continue to let Craving combine with Grasping and Existence to continue to move in the cycle of Births and Deaths, or to be resolute to Cease Craving, Grasping, Existence for the Links of the Twelve Nidànas of the World of Births and Deaths to terminate to reach Liberation and Enlightenment.
May you be brave and resolute to break the twelve Nidànas, achieve Liberation and Enlightenment to Practice the Compassionate-Persevering Bodhi Path by the means of Three Mystic Things Dharani Words.
