Mahabodhi Sunyata's Tree of Life Page

       



Now for the thousands who have in the past entered this web page it will be a surprise
to find these six Ginkgo leaves upon the title page, so I will try to explain why I made this change.

The web page is unlike most of the others. First it is not static and there is continual change in an effort to meet the "social engagement" requirements of Buddha Dharma that also fulfill the needs of ordinary people, perplexed by the folly and the globalization of the human mind which is taking place in this world and the destruction of the environment and other life forms that support us all.

Second, we do not try to sell anything at all. We only wish to make available ideas and concepts that are noble and otherwise may have gone unnoticed.

When we take a view of Buddha Dharma from afar as it stands like a tree, without a religious aspect, we find that like a tree we can perceive its whole beauty and at the same time know that it consists of:

The original seed, which is the Force of Life

The roots which give essential substance

The trunk which gives support

The branches which spread out to the warming sun

The leaves which gather the light of nourishment 

The flowers which bear the fruit of future survival

                               Six aspects - six Ginkgo leaves


                    Six Ginkgo Leaves and Six Temple Guardians

But in additipn, in a practical sense, we have six temple Dogs, the ancient breed of Sharpei Chinese. We present them here as symbols of the words and practices of True Dharm, even before Buddha elaborated his Dharma. Thus they represent the original boundless Dharma, the Budhha Dharma and the Chan Dharma of today.






For those who are Students upon a Dharma Path leading beyond the Traditional Psychological, Philosophical and Religious limits we here present:


           THE SIX EQUIVALENT STAGES OF DHARMA PROGRESS


         
         
                       The Life Force and Survival

The Source of Suffering

Determining Objectives

Meditation and Mindfulness

Factors of Awakening

Complete Chan Higher Dharma of Liberation


                                                                                      ENTER



But this is a difficult world that we live in, so for those without any Dharma knowledge who
bear the burden of dealing with Daily Problems, Anxiety, Specific or General Suffering, Discontent, Depression, Polarity, Hysteria or Addiction, we present freely for your self help and realization: 


           THE SIX STEPS OF THE INTERACTIVE THERAPY OF DHARMA PSYCHOLOGY

             

    



Presenting the many dimensions of the Problem

Discussing the Source

Client-centered path selection

Entering Dharma Therapy

Reaching into one’s true self

Liberation

                                                 ENTER



                                     Why then did I select the Ginkgo?


The Ginkgo is a living fossil, with fossils recognizably related to modern Ginkgo from the Permian Age, dating back 270 million years.

270 million years is way before our present civilization took its form. But nonetheless it
is a living reminder, a reminder of the Natural Dharma which existed long before the human creature made its aggressive presence known.

So it represents the Dharma even beyond the Buddha Dharma we practice and the Buddhism which has become popular today.
