Through grace or trauma, some are blessed with numinous experience. My blessing came with the ferocity of a shattering brain injury. I spent 7 years in hospital rehabilitation. I lost my identity, my friends, my way of comprehending the world.
What sustained me was a visionary experience of all-encompassing light and compassion the night of my injury.
The Yeshe series is both a memory and an invocation of this underlying radiance. It is a luminosity that pours forth and can be entered into. Recognized by mystics, known to those who have been stripped away and close to the edge of death, it is a place of primordial return. A home that never leaves us, no matter how far we stray.
Once experienced, this vast expanse can never be doubted or forgotten. In this presence our minds awaken; our hearts open. Carrying the memory, knowing we are inseparable, we return to the world and engage with clarity and compassion.
I share it with those who understand and those who need to believe.
