A Buddhist approach to cope with the Coronavirus (Covid-19) anxiety, fear or anger. Welcome to Katia’s BUZZ DHARMA TALKS with Lama Karma Chotso.
She provides simple ways to cope with the Coronavirus Pandemic anxiety and fear through faith, meditation, becoming part of the solution instead of being part of the problem, creating a sacred place at home to avoid anger and frustration.
She also talks about Gratitude, Compassion, Karma in connection to the world and many other interesting subjects that I hope will be helpful as we buckle up to try to diminish the spread of the virus.
Stay safe, stay home, stay peaceful and stay sane.

Mahamudra practice is directly dealing with the essence of everything and everyone. The purpose of the entire practice of Dharma is to attain Buddhahood. There is no other purpose. And the purpose of attaining Buddhahood is to assist all sentient beings to attain Buddhahood. There is no other purpose. Continue reading “Mahamudra by Tai Situ”
If you understand that all the misleading appearances of worldly existence are not intrinsically real, they will not tend to mislead you.
If you have attachment to friends and enemies as being real, they will mislead you. But if you have equanimity towards both, they will not mislead or deceive you.
If you see a lot of change or transition, that will tend to mislead you. But if you understand the intrinsic nature beyond change, it will not be misleading.
If you cling to the reality of birth and death, there is much deception. But if you realize there is no birth and death, there’s no deception.
If you believe in the existence of suffering, there’s much deception. But if you realize there’s no suffering, there’s no deception.
If you believe that self and other are separate, there’s much deception. But if you recognize that they are not two separate things, there’s no deception.
If you understand this true nature of deception, discursive thoughts will be liberated in their own place.

Milarepa’s Three Nails of Meditation
All thoughts, being dharmakaya, are free.
The nature of thoughts is luminous clarity, which is the true nature of mind-beyond fabrication, transcending all conceptual descriptions. Luminous clarity is the dharmakaya of natural purity. What is this dharmakaya like?
Awareness is luminous, in its depths is bliss.
The experience of dharmakaya has three characteristics: awareness, luminosity, and bliss. How do you meditate on that?
And resting without contrivance is equipoise.
Without trying to create or to stop anything, just let go and relax. That is meditation. There is no clearer explanation.
