Translated from Tibetan, introduced and annotated by Elio Guarisco
Creative Vision and Inner Reality is a translation of Easing the Beginner's Way: The Essential Points of Creation and Completion, written in verse at the age of twenty-seven by the amazing nineteenth-century realized master and profound scholar Jamgön Kongtrul Lodrö Thaye. Born in 1813 in Kham in eastern Tibet, Kongtrul offered this advice based on his own experiential understanding of these two basic methods in Tibetan Buddhist tantric meditation. The aspiring practitioner's way is eased by clear and extremely practical explanations of firstly, the phase of creation referring to the gradual imaginative process of recreating, with the aid of mantra and mudra, one's self as the deity and the environment as the mandala, while maintaining the awareness of the lack of real existence of these and all appearances and secondly, the phase of completion, referring to the dissolution of the visualization until the mind rests in its natural condition, the inseparability of bliss and emptiness, a state accomplished by, among other methods, concentration on one's so-called vajra body and its channels, winds, and vital essences.
