【Golden-faced Golden Mother Dharmalakṣaṇa Introduction】
Jade Pond Golden Mother is a supreme Golden Immortal. The primary emanation of Golden Mother is Golden-faced Golden Mother, who has one face, two arms and two legs. She is an exquisite young girl with a golden face. She is beautiful in a dignified manner, looking upon all sentient beings with compassion. She wears a phoenix crown. In her left hand she holds either a celestial peach or a Ruyi. In her right hand she holds a celestial dust-whisk.
Jade Pond Golden Mother opened my deva eye at Jade Emperor Temple, and on that very evening, took me on a visit to all the realms beyond this world. On this trip, Golden Mother showed me my former life. What I saw was a brilliant white light, a shining, sparkling, golden light, radiating auspicious energy. It was Padmakumara, but without form. Jade Pond Golden Mother then told me ''You were Padmakumara in your past life.''
In fact, on a separate occasion, Golden Mother took me to the celestial palace of the Jade Pond. While seated on a dharma throne, she told me, ''The Golden-faced Golden Mother is the primary form of Golden Mother.'' At that moment, I stood in front of Golden-faced Golden Mother and was presented with a plate. On the plate were three pills; a black pill, a red pill and a white pill. Golden Mother said, ''Choose one'' to which I replied, ''I would love to have all three of them.'' She refused my request and insisted that I could take only one.
The black pill seemed dull and unattractive, while the white pill looked bland and pale. The red pill appeared more festive so that's the one I chose. Golden Mother said, ''Very well, in the future, your mission will be the universal deliverance of sentient beings.'' I asked Golden Mother, ''What about the black pill?'' Golden Mother replied, ''The black pill represents deliverance of beings in the netherworld whereas the red pill represents deliverance of sentient beings both in the netherworld and the human world, in a universal sense.'' I then asked Golden Mother, ''What about the white pill?'' Golden Mother replied, ''With the white pill, one will be required to go into spiritual retreat in the mountains. One will practice diligently and gain spiritual attainments based on one's efforts.''
Golden-faced Golden Mother is foremost of all the Golden Mothers. She will bless disciples with the ability to ''attend to buddhas as well as one's 'badu' (Taiwanese, meaning stomach).'' Everyone is familiar with the mudra of Jade Pond Golden Mother. Form her mudra to purify one's body and recite her mantra, ''Om, jin-mu, su-da-li, she-na, shi-dhi, hum,'' to purity one's speech. One may visualize Jade Pond Golden Mother as having a golden face, wearing a phoenix crown, and holding a celestial dust-whisk in her right hand while her left hand holds either a celestial peach or a Ruyi.
When one merges with the supreme consciousness, when there is unification of heaven and oneself, one becomes supreme. One is then a buddha, a bodhisattva, a dharma protector, a daka, a dakini or a heavenly being. May we all attain accomplishments in our spiritual cultivation together.
