Sesame Seed Teaching from Tilopa

Sesame Vajra Doha

“Sesame oil is the essence. Although the ignorant knows that he is in the sesame seed, They do not understand the way of cause and effect, and becoming, therefore, are not able to extract the essence, the sesame oil. Although innate co emergent wisdom abides in the heart of all beings, If it is not shown by the guru, it cannot be realized. Just like sesame oil that remains in the seed, it does not appear. One removes the husk by beating the sesame, And the sesame oil; the essence appears. In the same way, the guru shows the truth of tathata, And all phenomena become indivisible in one essence. Kye ho!

The far-reaching, unfathomable meaning is apparent at this very moment OH how wondrous!”

Tilopa (11th century AD)

Yes, how amazing we are! In our rough, raw state, we are armored like the seed. Through experience and great teachings, something wonderful happens. We find others who know how to remove our armor and excite our exotic nature to be released into the world! This is the journey of Tantra, to crack our husk and reveal our essence. Then we press further to extract our juice into the world. From simple and protected, to flowing and vulnerable. One state is static and the other is far-reaching and fluid.

This is why I formed Tantra Quest, to support people in taking the journey deep inside to explore their sexual, emotional, creative, spiritual and intellectual nature. Find freedom from the structures that no longer serve and experience a life well lived. This is the way, and gift, of Tantra. Keep uncovering and unfolding. Our gifts are essential to this world, so share them fully!
