As new mandala form from opportunities presented to your perception, there is a need to understand direction and time in meditation context.

There are the five senses plus consciousness that relate to the five Buddha families in the eight directions. A traditional direction to face when you pray or meditate is the east but a Buddha field is in all directions with the centre in centerless space.

As mandalas merge and change in meditation, the directions and places of Buddha fields become fluid with multiple occurrences so that relationships become more important than directions. When this occurs the northeast is a good direction to face as the northeast is a gateway to this process of dynamic mandals.

Shifting your viewpoint but keeping the inherent mandala clear is a sign of progress as one loses a sense of attachment and aversion to those near and far. Attachment and aversion is linked to familiarity and understanding. Keeping a sense of peace in this meditation process is important.

Distinguishing right from wrong becomes more refined, subtle and profound. The necessity for protecting ones deluded ego diminishes.
