Five Lights

Five Lights – The ground substance from which everything is made.  Traditionally it denotes the five emotions that give birth to material form and hence our human experience.  

When these five emotions become obstacles due to our attachment or aversion to it, they give birth to thoughts, experiences or things that cause us to suffer.  Then it is referred to as the ‘five poisons’ which lead to entrapment on the Wheel and the Six Realms.  When these emotions are simply experienced as pure in themselves, it is referred to as the ‘five wisdoms’ and gives birth to the joyous and blissful experience of all of reality.  

Even though in traditional Buddhism there are specific teachings around the actual ‘five lights’, according to the Buddha Brat ethos the actual number of lights is not something to be fixated on.  The main focus is the principle behind it which states that the emotions and the mind are the root of all existence and yet that the nature of existence itself is nothing more than the ‘play of light’ changing at any moment according to ones mood.  

It is for this reason that the state of ‘ease’ and ‘effortlessness’ is so important because if one is constantly relaxed it generates a reality that is relaxing and enjoyable.  

Compare to Dakini, Mara and Thigle.  Also see Six Realms and Dzogchen
