Trans Mission

In the three jewels we have:

  • Buddha, the transmitting ideal
  • Dharma, the words of ideals unfolded
  • Sangha, the lived trans missionaries

So how best to flow with this precious?

For me it comes down to living or presenting the changing nurture/nature. In other words enabling ourselves and personal environment. Premature transmission is the expression or revelation of our impediments. Others may if sincere gain from our inaptitude but far better to have a real transmission or mindful mingling …

Some share silence, perfect but practical? Which way to head?

    I think there is such a thing as transmission, something that establishes a true link between master and disciple. In Zen you might find some people who were adept with this, as amongst the ancient Indian masters.

    Osho once said about the master-disciple relationship that it was a love affair. And I think that’s true, there were a lot of people amongst his disciples who genuinely loved him.
