Bless me so that illusory appearances will arise as wisdom.
Everything is illusory as described in the sutras and the teachings of the Buddha. But “illusory appearances to arise as wisdom”? It is impossible for us because illusory appearances will raise attachment and strong grasping, so we are attached to the phenomena. And then we believe that this is real and that is real. This is really beautiful and this is really bad. It creates a lot of dualistic thoughts therefore to see illusory appearances [as they are] is very, very difficult. Now if one practices Dharma and, especially Vajrayana, very well, this one is able to see illusory appearance as wisdom. For example, before the Buddha became enlightened, all the Maras from everywhere in samsara came to attack him, throwing all these sharp, very dangerous, scary weapons to him. But they turned into flowers. Buddha saw illusory appearances as wisdom. That’s the highest result of meditation. Such thing exists but will it happen with us? It is difficult to say “yes” or “no”. It’s difficult because it definitely depends on one’s diligence, and the mental faculty and realization. If one is able to train oneself very well, one is able to be very diligent, one is able to understand the instructions of the Guru, then one is able to see all the illusory appearances as a wisdom. So, we need to rely on the Guru, on the blessing of Guru to reach this level.
