Vajrayana (also known as Tantrayana) is another sect of Buddhism. Until now, many Buddhists have not understood properly and completely about this particular sect. So, let us learn about Buddhist Ananda through the following article.
The image of the Buddha embracing a female companion is believed to be erroneous.
1. Vajrayana: The Right or “Wicked Sect”
Tibetan Buddhism (practiced according to the Vajrayana) has always been hidden away in high mountain forests, with its teacher completely isolated from the outside world. Nowadays, with the development of 21st century media, Tantra has gradually become known to many people through various sources of information.
To become a practitioner following the Vajrayana, a practitioner must use a number of practices to purify the three karmas of body, speech and mind in order to become the body, speech and mind of a Buddha. On the Buddha’s journey to tame the soul to become the dharma body, the practitioner must experience the practice of “the body” as taught by a direct teacher. That religion is also called Tantrik or Tantrik.
“Tantra has four characteristics: first that Yoga Dharma completely purifies the surrounding environment; the second is the practice of yoga which purifies the body completely; the third is to purify all senses completely; The fourth is yoga practice which purifies all actions completely. Any teaching that includes these four purifications is tantra.”
500 years after the Buddha’s parinirvana, we find that the causal structure, including the structure of our own mind stream, has greatly diminished. Therefore, it is even more difficult for the seekers to walk on the path of self-liberation.
Therefore, Vajrayana uses anything that enters a person’s body and mind to advance on the path to liberation. Like the meaning of a famous saying: “Man has fallen to the ground, he must take the ground to rise”. Vajrayana is characterized by an emphasis on means, methods and techniques.
Much of the debate is about yab yum, also known as dual practice or consort practice. The image of the Buddha embracing a female companion is said to be wrong, against the principles of the Buddha, and a form of corruption. Even some religious leaders believe that Vajrayana is an unholy religion.
2. Physical pleasure is not meant in Buddha wife
The Buddha statue is “stoned” by many because it is said that the figure is too sensual.
All sensual beings are made of extremely mundane matter. On the other hand, desire is always present within us. From the realm of form to the realm above that to the realm of the formless, there is no desire for desire.
This is because the substances that make up their bodies are naturally pure and subtle, much lighter than the substances that make up our bodies, which is the image of the Tibetan Nyingma school, Samantabhadra, in their thoughts. Yab-Yum is at the center of the Shi-Tro Mandala, Thai Hoa Mandala.
However, this bodhisattva is sometimes depicted in an angry form known as Kemchoka Heruka. In this form, he is a winged deity with a dark brown body, three faces, six arms and four legs, and is often depicted holding a bright red wife. This image represents unity (as above) in Mahayana Buddhism (this type of image is very common in Nepal, Tibet, India, etc.)
Infinite inspiration in the expression of thought flows into every corner of the stream of consciousness and is painted or sculpted. Its purpose is to show that in order to transform this five senses and the impure world into the wisdom of the Lotus Sutra, one has to overcome a difficult threshold of craving. “The greatest weakness of beings is illusion – being in illusion day and night, unable to move. If you can turn your passion for beauty into the mind to practice and study the Buddhadharma, and you will quickly become a Buddha, every hour, every minute, without forgetting to practice and study.”
This Dharmakaya is very subtle, pure and has no sensual pleasures in it. The subtlety and purity of the body of a Bodhisattva is even more subtle and pure than that of an invisible being. Therefore, the manifestation of the consort of the gods is naturally completely devoid of any desire.
Usually our habit is to see the Buddha statue above from the eyes of common people. It is completely wrong to say that this male religion is combined with any other female religion. But if you look at the idol from the point of view of a meditator, it will look very different. Buddha in the idol is in full meditation posture and he does not care about the girl in the idol. Situations such as having sex with a girl are intended to represent a pleasurable meditative state.
Anyone who has practiced meditation and entered meditation will understand the joy of meditation when the body reaches a state of complete relaxation, releasing hormones that create happiness and euphoria. of Karma and past practice, and if “Consciousness” is not transformed into “Mind”, then in the end there will remain an endless craving for Karma. It is a way of escaping the soul rather than expressing it outwardly, but it does not mean that karmic desires do not exist within us.
Happy Buddha has a deep philosophical meaning
3. Philosophical meaning of the happy Buddha
The cultural origin of the image of the Buddha embracing a girl is the philosophical view that yin has yang, yang has yin. Each of us has yin and yang. That “strange” Buddha image also explains that yin and yang philosophy.
Sex between men and women has been a part of ancient Eastern philosophy since ancient times. It represents the harmony of yin and yang. When yin and yang merge, the human body will reach a healthy, clear state.
