Buddha Beyond

There is the practice of the Ten Recollections. One of these recollections is ‘Recollection of the Tathagata’. Here, in this most wonderful Mahayana text, the Vimalakirti Sutra, we hear about how Vimalakirti sees the Buddha as being of the same nature as his own true, or “ultimate” (paramārtha) nature.

This is a beautiful way of practicing Buddha Recollection and Meditation on “Emptiness”/”Interdependence”/”Notself” at the same time.
