Buddha’s gentleness, Shiva’s courage

…”Show gentleness of Buddha on the outside, keep Shiva’s courage on the inside”…

Because I was deeply touched by the experience of being kicked out by a pecalang (village security guard) at a temple, then a very beautiful message like this was heard from within.

“That’s what happens when you study Buddhism without being purified by Shiva’s energy.”  Because of this, a few days before Vesak 2023 Guruji studied Shiva in a corner of the Ashram.

In this corner the energy is very high. Light has fallen many times from the sky.  Armed with the knowledge of Vigyam Bhairawa Tantra plus spiritual instincts, there are many beautiful guidances in this place.

Initially, Guruji seemed to be hit by an electric shock from below.  Then began to appear dangerous energies such as anger.

Even hearing the neighbor’s dog barking, anger arose from within.  Thankfully, Guruji has been embodiing the Buddha since early 20s.

So that the dangerous energy – which plagued it for days and nights – could be neutralized by the Buddha’s compassion.

Every time that negative energy wants to burn from within, compassion whispers inside: “It’s ok to feel not ok”.  It’s okay to feel angry.

Compassion doesn’t just show up for the person who hurts, compassion also holds the anger inside.  Born from a pile of soul wounds from childhood.

From there it also reminds me of the Shiva devotee’s mantra: “I am both darkness and light”.  And this is justified by holistic psychology which advocates embracing both darkness and Light within.

Thankfully, on Vesak Day yesterday the dangerous energy passed and was replaced by balance.  Around the place also sounded a beautiful message.

“Show gentleness of Buddha on the outside, keep Shiva’s courage on the inside.” The courage to spread peace.

Strangely, yesterday afternoon no one asked, no one ordered, Guruji’s wife made a Mandala (perfect circle) in that place.

In fact, Guruji did not tell anyone about studying Shiva’s knowledge there.  Mandala means perfection. The chosen color is the color of the sunrise.

Balinese elders call the sun as Shiva Raditya.  When it rises it started with red.  Rise a little more it becomes yellow.

Once it is white, it cannot be seen.  Our eyes can be blind.  There is a secret message hidden there.  Only he who is deep can understand this.

H.H. Guruji Gede Prama

Gede Prama started his spiritual journey through a dialogue with his symbolic Guru in a village at the north of Bali. The journey is then being enriched with his experiences of studying abroad, his meetings with the world greatest spiritual Gurus: His Holiness Dalai Lama, The Venerable Thich Nhat Hanh, as well as Professor Karen Armstrong; and also being deepened by his intense meditation practices.

Despite the fact that he was once a CEO of a large corporation with thousand of employees, and was traveling abroad frequently for the purpose of teaching, yet, being deeply moved by the Bali bombing incident in 2002, he then decided to leave everything and went back to his home island.
He has never leave Bali for the past few years. In fact, he rarely leaves the silence of the forest where he lives, except for the purpose of teaching at the sacred sites within Bali.
