2 Corinthians 1 and Mahamudra

 

2 Corinthians 1 expresses Mahamudra and the Four noble truths.

Greeting: is a preamble to support the qualifications of Paul.

"Comfort in Suffering:" is the First Noble Truth of Suffering and The Second Noble Truth of the Cause of Suffering within Mahamudra, a very advanced discussion of suffering but very necessary to be able to maintain meditations. Thus the discussion of "comfort" reducing suffering. In other words one must understand the cause of suffering to understand 2 Corinthians 1.

"Delivered from Suffering:" is the Third Noble Truth of The Cessation of Suffering and The Forth Noble Truth of The Path. "Ignorance (not knowing or able to maintain good conduct)" is the root cause for "had the sentence of death in ourselves". The deliverance by "you also helping together in prayer for us" giving "the gift granted to us through many".

Prayer by one and many is the path for the cessation of suffering.

"Paul’s Sincerity:" There is good and bad pride but pride in sincerity is good as the wisdom of prayer is blessed by the grace of God moving wisdom beyond worldly wisdom "For our boasting is this: the testimony of our conscience that we conducted ourselves in the world in simplicity and godly sincerity".

"Sparing the Church:" By confidence in sincerity, the essence of Mahamudra, the Church is saved. "Now He who establishes us with you in Christ and has anointed us is God, who also has sealed us and given us the Spirit in our hearts as a guarantee." is the fruition of Mahamudra. Mahamudra means The Great Teaching by the empowerment of God that is directly understood by naked insight without support, sealing "us the Spirit in our hearts as a guarantee".

Standing up means approval, thus "by faith you stand".

This is and excellent teaching as most of 2 Corinthians 1 can be understood by study and prayer giving insight without other supporting words.
