Elaborations Self-Liberated

There are many different kinds of elaborations. In vajrayāna, all the deities and mandalas are only elaborations, only concepts. For example, the Kālachakra has over a thousand deities, all of which are only elaborations of conceptual mind. You can think about them, but then remember that thoughts about elaborations are self-liberated.

Composed by Khenpo Tsultrim Gyamtso Rinpoche, in 2005 on Holy Island, Scotland.
