Verse

All tremble at force,
dear is life to all.
Likening others to oneself
kill not nor cause to kill.

one’s life. To all life is dear. Seeing that others feel the same way as
oneself, equating others to oneself, refrain from harming or killing.

Six Spiritual Powers

1)
spiritual power of the heavenly eye, 2) spiritual power of the heavenly ear, 3)
spiritual power of knowledge of past lives, 4) spiritual power of knowledge of
the minds of others, 5) powers derived from a spiritual basis, 6) spiritual
power of the elimination of outflows.

A.
IN GENERAL

All
the gods of the Three Worlds have the first five spiritual powers to some
degree. Ghosts and spirits also have some small degree of spiritual power.
Those of non-Buddhist religions who cultivate can at the very most only attain
the first five. Only one whose enlightenment is certified achieves the sixth,
the extinction of outflows.

On
the level of the Arhat, the powers are still small. If an Arhat wishes to use
one of them, he must first make a point of making himself still, sitting
quietly for a while. Only then can he find out what he wishes to know.
Bodhisattvas, however, without wishing, without acting, naturally and at every
instant have great spiritual power without measure or limit. This is the
inconceivably wonderful fruit of the Mahayana.

B.
INDIVIDUALLY

1)
spiritual power of the heavenly eye

“With
the heavenly eye one can see the gods and observe all their activities.”
(AS 5)

“A
power that enables one to see an entire world system of a billion worlds as
clearly as an apple held in the palm. The Buddha’s disciple, the Venerable
Aniruddha, was foremost in this power.” (SPV 26)

“With
it you can see what is inside your own body, all the living beings within you
that you must vow to save. Although scientists cannot count the number of
living beings inside the human body, if you have the heavenly eye you can see
them, count them, and take them across… You can even count up the grains of
rice you eat. You can see how your meal is being digested in your
stomach…” (DFS IV 808-809)

2)
spiritual power of the heavenly ear

“With
the heavenly ear one can hear the speech and sound of the gods.” (AS 5)

“A
power by means of which one can hear all the sounds in a world system of a
billion worlds, not merely the sounds in the heavens.” (SPV 27)

“With
the heavenly ear, not only can you hear what the gods are saying, but you can
hear all of the little ‘bugs’ inside of you calling out. You can hear the germs
talking, the flowers talking, and the trees talking. Some people say that when
you go pick a flower it is afraid and lets out a scream? That’s right. ‘Oh no!
This is it! It’s all over. I’m going to die!!!’ When you start hearing all
these sounds, though, you shouldn’t dislike it. You can choose not to listen to
them, too. It’s up to you. The heavenly eye sees more clearly than an x-ray
machine, and the heavenly ear hears more clearly than sonar equipment.”
(DFS IV 809)

3)
spiritual power of the knowledge of past lives

“A
power that enables one to know past events, both good and bad.” (SPV 27)

A
Shramana asked: “What are the causes and conditions by which one comes to
know past lives and by which one’s understanding enables one to attain the
Way?”

The
Buddha said: “By purifying the mind and guarding the will, your
understanding can enable you to attain the Way. Just as when you polish a
mirror, the dust vanishes and brightness remains, so too, if you eliminate
desire and do not seek (for anything), you can then know past lives.” (S42
35)

4)
spiritual power of the knowledge of the minds of others

“A
power through which others’ thoughts are known before they are even
spoken.” (SPV 27)

5)
The powers derived from a spiritual basis

This
“refers to all kinds of powers of magical transformation. You can be
sitting in one place and at the same time go off to New York to play. You can
go take a look at things in L.A. It won’t take you one second to make your
return trip either…” (DFS VII 1296)

A
Bodhisattva who has this power:

can
move the great earth. He can make one body into

many
bodies, and many bodies into one body. He can

either
disappear or appear. He goes through stone

walls
and solid mountains as if they were space. In

empty
space he travels in full lotus, just like a bird

in
flight. He enters earth as if into water, and

treads
upon water as if it were earth. His body puts

forth
smoke and flames like an immense heap of fire.

He
further sends down rain just like a mighty cloud. The sun and moon in space
have tremendous, awesome

might,
yet he can touch and rub them with his hand. His body is free and at ease, even
up to the world of

Brahma.
. . . (FAS Ch26(2) 116)

6)
The spiritual power from the elimination of outflows

Outflows
refer to all our faults, especially ignorance and desire, which cause us to
expend energy outward as we seek pleasure in external sense-objects.

“To
be without outflows is to have no thoughts of greed, hate, stupidity, or sexual
desire. In general, once one gets rid of all one’s bad habits and faults, one
has no outflows. Outflows are like water running out of a leaky bottle; at the
stage of no outflows the leaks have been stopped up.” (AS 6)

Consider
a “teacup. Does it have any holes in it,

any
outflows? It has no outflows, of course, and so it can hold the tea… Would
you say that our bodies have outflows or not? Hah! Our bodies are bottomless
pits. You fill your body up today and tomorrow it all runs out… Obviously
one’s excrement and urine are outflows. They flow out, and we have practically
no control over it. Our bodies have nine orifices which constantly secrete
impure substances… But, these are very common, ordinary outflows and aren’t
that important. The greatest outflows are the ones you aren’t even aware of:
greed, hatred, stupidity, pride, and doubt… In general, outflows are none
other than our afflictions…” (DFS VII 1281-1285)

“What
are outflows? Do you like to eat? That is an outflow. Do you like to drink
coffee? That is an outflow. Women like men; that is an outflow. Men like women;
that is an outflow.

“‘What
can you do that isn’t an outflow?’ you ask.

“Cultivate!
That’s simply all there is to it. First and foremost, you have to cultivate. If
you cultivate, you can be without outflows. If you do not cultivate, you cannot
be without outflows. There’s simply no way around it.

“‘I’d
rather have outflows than cultivate,’ you say.

“If
that’s what you’d like, if it suits you to have outflows, then go ahead and
‘flow out’. Let’s see where you ‘flow out’ to. You could flow out and turn into
a pig, or a horse, or an ox, or flow out into the hells, into the path of
animals, or hungry ghosts. You pick your own path…” (DFS IV 808)

says:
Just as
Manjushri works
To fulfill the aims of all limited beings
To the far reaches of space in the ten directions,
May my
behavior become just like that.

For as long as space remains,
And for as
long as wandering beings remain,

May
I too remain for that long,
Dispelling the sufferings of wandering
beings.

(Like Ananda says in the Shurangama
Sutra
introduction to the Shurangama Mantra,
“And even could the nature of
shunyata melt away, my vajra-like Supreme Resolve would still remain
unmoved.)

Whatever sufferings wandering beings might have,
May all of them
ripen on me,
And through the
Bodhisattva assembly,
May wandering beings enjoy happiness.

May
the
teachings,
the sole medicine for the sufferings of wandering beings
And the
source of all happiness,
Continue to endure for a very
long time,
With
material support and shows of respect.

Iddhipada

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Iddhipāda (Pali; Skt. ddhipāda)
is a compound term composed of “power” or “potency” (iddhi; ddhi)
and “base,” “basis” or “constituent” (pāda).[1]
In Buddhism,
the “power” referred to by this compound term is a group of spiritual
or psychic powers that include teleportation
and other forms of bodily transformation. Thus, this compound term is usually
translated along the lines of “base of power” or “base of
spiritual power.”[2]

In the Buddhist pursuit of Enlightenment, the associated spiritual powers are
secondary to the four “base” mental qualities that achieve such
powers. In traditional Buddhist literature, this set of four mental qualities
is one of the seven sets of qualities lauded by the Buddha
as conducive to Enlightenment (bodhipakkhiyādhammā).
