An simple and profound experience has been had through the Generation Stage practice: Sameness. On any given Saturday, we meditate and generate the qualities of a Tibetan Buddhist deity, a Hindu deity, a quality of sublime Beingness, or today Virgin Mary.
We see that much of the symbolism is carried through across traditions. Color, clothing, standing, sitting, or meditating pose carry meaning across the world. And the experience of meditating with this variety of the divine is that of discovering that these qualities ARE within ourselves – hence we can empty our sense of self so that the qualities of innate profound Beingness can pour out.
