Cyclic Existence is an Illusion

Tonight, we did a Guru Rinpoche Practice under the guidance of Acho Rinpoche.
After the prayer, Dharma Sister Xia told us that she “saw” a ray of golden light rising from the coffin of her late father continuously for a period, when Acho Rinpoche was performing a soul deliverance practice to help her late father at his funeral wake just two days ago. Her sister also kept burping during the whole period and could sense the presence of the numerous holy beings.

Next, Acho Rinpoche told us that when a Vajrayanist considers a cup as a real cup, he has actually transgressed a minor precept in the practice of Vajrayana. Another word, we ought to view all things in life as illusory. If we view them as real existence, we have transgressed a minor precept. Fortunately, in our daily sadhana, we chant the One Hundred Syllable Mantra of Vajrasattva which could cleanse away our faults in transgression. In a nut shell, we just ought to view this world as illusory, empty in nature and false.  

Finally, we ended our prayer by reciting the names of the Buddhas under the guidance of Acho Rinpoche, and dedicated the merits to all sentient beings - may all sentient beings be happy, free of sufferings and attain enlightenment one day.
