(by Garuda) I was meditating this morning going through the ups and downs of life, and suddenly, looking at Rama's poster, I realized that everyday has been a good day since I became his student. Ever since that day, I have been connected to the network of enlightenment. More importantly, I have been formally accepted as a student of a fully enlightened teacher.
Written and published while Rama was in graduate school at the State University of New York, this book is a collection of past life experiences described by the many people whom Rama encountered while lecturing and teaching in the United States and abroad.
The Enlightenment Cycle talk set, recorded by Rama - Dr. Frederick P. Lenz in 1992, is essential coursework for students of American Buddhism. These 12 talks are a summation of Rama's teachings.
"What I term Tantric Zen, I could also refer to as old Zen, the original face of Zen, or new Zen, contemporary Zen practice -- no mind, the mirror of existence. Zen is meditation, the actual experience of life -- directly, immediately, with no buffers." -- Rama
The Lakshmi Series of 28 talks are the first talk recordings produced by Rama - Dr. Frederick Lenz. Taped in private and public settings in 1982 and 1983, these teachings cover a vast range of topics that Rama once called "the basics that everyone should know".
“Zen is the study of making the mind still. As your mind becomes still, a power enters into you. This power transforms your mind. It escalates your evolution and you begin to cycle through many incarnations in one lifetime. You make tremendous quantum leaps and jumps… you are going to take perhaps a hundred lifetimes, which you would have gone through and experienced and gradually evolved through into higher levels of intelligence, and do that perhaps in one lifetime. And you will go through all the changes in awareness, all of the different states of mind, that you would have experienced in a hundred lifetimes." Rama - Dr. Frederick Lenz
“Everyone is psychic. You are psychic. It is an ability that we all have. It's a part of your mind.... Psychic perception does not come through the thinking mind, nor does it come through emotional feelings -- it comes from the psychic plane of intuition -- another avenue within mind. To reach into that avenue, a stillness has to be developed, because the impressions from the psychic plane are clouded over by emotions and thoughts.
"It is very, very difficult to hear a radio station that might have wonderful music if there are two larger stations next to it on either side of it on the dial. The signal can be lost in the disturbance.
"So within you there is a continuous signal -- a continuous perception is taking place deep within the mind -- but it's hard to hear that signal because it is blurred over by your own thoughts, your desires, your fears. It is blurred over by your emotional swings. And as you live in this world, unless you live a very different type of life, you lose your sensitivity. You become dull. Sensitivity can be regained by leading your life differently." Rama - Dr. Frederick Lenz
"It's not special to be enlightened. It's just different. An enlightened person is someone who has dedicated not just this lifetime, but thousands of lifetimes to becoming awareness. They see through the mysteries of life and understand them -- and what the enlightened person sees, no one could ever tell or describe. Wonder beyond belief." Rama - Dr. Frederick Lenz
"What makes us happy is contact with Light. As you have experiences with the inner light, which are gained through the practice of meditation and Buddhism, it immediately delights you." Rama - Dr. Frederick Lenz
