Authentication: Galvanising Time and Place

"Space is unconfined. Because space is limitless – even the limitations that we create, are simply expressions of limitlessness. When we create physical parameters—as venues for the realisation of nonduality—we need to recognise the nature of the delineated space as being inseparable from undelineated space of Mind. Because we understand the world symbolically—through language and other codifications—we employ symbolic activity to authenticate our purpose in establishing a meditation centre. The Nyingma lineages of Vajrayana Buddhism contain a wealth of methods which galvanise time and place—for the benefit of everyone and everything everywhere—and authentication is the portal to that possibility"
