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
Meditation and Mindfulness
Complete Chan Higher Dharma of Liberation
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
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.
