"Everything is one. There's only one eternal reality. Yet there are two."
Tantric Buddhism is a pathway to Enlightenment. In Tantra we do not avoid the world. We embrace it. We believe that God exists in everything. We focus on the clear light of reality in and through all experiences.
In self-discovery we seek to go beyond the limited self and experience the clear light of reality. You do not need to know who or what you want to become. You simply need to dissolve. The clear light will take care of the rest.
In Buddhism we seek that which is ineffable - that which cannot be seen with the eyes or felt with the hands. We seek to find the still center in the middle of all the turning worlds, simply because we like that, we know that's where we belong.
Buddhism involves bringing your mind into clearer and clearer states. We completely purify the mind and then we go beyond all states of mind. When there is no self and therefore no one to perceive states of mind, there is only enlightenment.
If the ups and downs of the transitory are bothering you, why not make so much happiness that nothing can affect you? Buddhist yoga teaches us how to remove the focus of our mind from the world and place it in a realm of pure light and ecstasy.
