Mahamudra and the Stranger - Reading Allogenes the Stranger and Mahamudra: the Moonlight, I see some connections. In this post, I’m gonna quickly point those out.
When Ordinary Mind Gnos Itself: the dawning of Mahamudra Meditation. - Here is a psychospiritual poem / rambling-session centered on Mahamudra Mediation. What does “Psychospiritual poem / rambling-session” imply? It means I’m not gonna spend too much time trying to connect the dots for you.

Past, Present, Future Dissolve in Nembutsu Light - The Nembutsu closes the distance and folds the time that ordinarily and conditionally appears to separate us from that point where Dharmakara made his great Vow, that past, present and future dissolve into the eternal Now.
