Winning article for “A Chance To Bring Home Medicine Buddha — For Free!!

 
My mother is ill since I was 5 years old. Now I am 15 years old.

She cannot sleep normal. This makes her very sick. All kind of strange pains and discomforts occur. She cannot concentrate or remember. When I was 8 years old she had a car accident. The injury’s of the car accident had a very bad influence on her illness.

She is often too sick to do her practise or when she is not too sick she simply forgets to do her practise, because she has very big trouble to remember things. The few moments when she is not so ill, when she wants to do something she really likes very much, she forgets to do.

When we can we attend Buddhist teachings or retreats. In the teachings and retreats my mother feels always better.

In October 2012 she tried again to take some Tibetan medicine. She has less pain in her joints since December 2012!

She still takes the medicine because the doctor told her that she has to take the medicine for a very long period.

I have a very close connection with my mother. When I was little she took care of me in despite of her sickness. Now I help her a lot. We have a very good relation. We really care for each other. This is the positive aspect of my mother’s illness. Everything has a positive aspect, sometimes it takes quite a while to discover it!

She has never been able to play a lot with me. The few energy she has, she has to save for the most important and urgent things she has to do.

I do hope one day she will be cured and that she will be able to sleep a normal sleep, so that she can do her practise, experience some joy and bliss and that we can do amusing things together.

I am sure that the Medicine Buddha statue will help her to cure.

    This is a very simple written article. Yet, the care, the love and the patient that this 15 years old boy -Giel-Frédéric Fouberthad have for his mom is very touching. He understand the suffering that his mom going through and he willing to take care of his mom. He even come to this competition to win a Buddha Medicine for his mom. May his mom recover faster.

  6. KYC on Mar 26, 2013 at 7:17 pm

    Dear Giel-Frederic,
    I hope your mother gets well soon. You are very kind and loving to your mother which is very meritorious. This will help her recover from her illness faster because, in the first place, you make her happy. Helping her will give her peace of mind and not have to worry about you. You are very mature for a 15 year-old boy. I’m very happy to know about you. Good luck!

  7. Li Kheng on Mar 21, 2013 at 9:33 pm

    Dear Giel-Frederic, thank you for sharing your story of love with us. I am inspired by your view of your mother’s illness at your young age. Your words above taught me and I trust strongly will inspire others to appreciate life and to truly care for those we love.

    I strongly wish that your mommy will continue to recover with her medication. I trust that Medicine Buddha will help her heal within and without. Practice Him well with your mother to create a strong relationship with Him to have His blessings with you lifetime after lifetime.

  8. Jutika Lam on Mar 19, 2013 at 11:01 pm

    Dear Giel-Frédéric Foubert,

    What a very touching story of yours!

    I am very amazed how you are only 15 years old but yet your thinking is very wise.

    It is good for you to push aside what a normal 15 years old would do just to take care of your lovely mom.

    I am very happy for you to know of your very strong connection with your mom and I hope and trust in you to maintain that strong connection with your mom because you are a very special boy unlike others to care greatly of your mom

    Sickness is common with everyone in this world and nobody can escape it but I am very sure that your mom will get well with Medicine Buddha as he is the Buddha of Healing.

    I hope that your mom will very quickly get well soon so that she will be able to live free of pains and illnesses.

    Enclosed is the Mantra of the Medicine Buddha.

    TAYATHA OM BEKANZE BEKANZE MAHA BEKANZE BEKANZE RANDZA SAMUGATHE SOHA

    (Do this mantra daily so that your mother will recover quickly)

    I hope that all the Merits accumulated through taking care of your mom would quickly heal your mother.

    Wonderful how when you were young, when there were times you were sick your mom took care of you and now when your mom is sick you are taking care of her.

    Always take care of your mom not because you want rewards from her but take care of her with the motivation that you are repaying your mother’s endless kindness and love.

    I am very happy you won a Medicine Buddha Statue for your mom as well as yourself!!!

    Keep up the good work Giel-Frédéric Foubert and congratulations on winning a Medicine Buddha Statue!

    Love
    Jutika

    Dear Giel-Frédéric,

    When you said “Everything has a positive aspect, sometimes it takes quite a while to discover it!” I was astonished to read such wonderful words from a 15 year old boy. You are very mature than even most adults. Its truly touching to have read your beautiful story and I too hope your mother gets better soon. She is in all our hearts and prayers. Continue to love and take care of your mother. You’re a very good son.

  10. William on Mar 13, 2013 at 1:10 am

    Such a beautiful story, full of love. There is no love greater than the love of a mother to her child I am sure that your mother is very proud of you. Knowing that you have written your story to Rinpoche and telling the world how much you love your mother would make her think that you are a big boy now and can take care of yourself.

    Than you for sharing your story. May Buddha bless your mother and you.

  11. Paris on Mar 12, 2013 at 6:52 pm

    Dear Giel-Frederic,
    What a beautiful article you’ve shared with us here – I can really feel how much you love your mother here, and what a strong and amazing boy you are to support her for so many years through her illness. It’s incredibly selfless and patient of you to be with your mother, and to understand that she is not able to spend so much time with you but that she has to save her energy “for the most important and urgent things she has to do”. Not many children would be able to understand this. It’s very brave, independent and strong of you to be this understanding.

    May Medicine Buddha bring tremendous healing and peace to both you and your mother. Even if your mother is not able to do her practice daily, you can be a real pillar of strength for her. You can also recite the mantra and prayers and dedicate them to her; and of course, place the Medicine Buddha near her, so she can see him daily and gain much peace and strength from him always. Touch Medicine Buddha to her head also, for his blessings.

    I wish you much happiness dear Giel-Frederic

  12. Davin on Mar 12, 2013 at 5:48 pm

    Thank you for sharing this beautiful and heartwarming mother and son story. You are such a brave, loving and caring young boy who cares for your mom so much.I am sure your prayers and wishes will come true soon, when you receive H E Tsem Rinpoche’s blessed Medicine Buddha,your mom will be cured of her sickness and both of you will be blessed by the Buddha.

    Dear Giel-Frédéric Foubert,
    Thank you for sharing even though it is not easy for ou to do so. And i loved what your wrote the best thing that came out of the illness is we learn to care for each others. That for me is quite amazing.
    Best Wishes

    Dear Giel-Frederic Foubert,

    Yours is a beautiful story about a son’s love for his mother and her love for him. Your mum may be unwell; but even in her ‘unwell’ state, she has shown you much love. For a young boy, you show a love that is rare and beautifully touching for your mother. The care you give her has gone beyond to that of caring for her spiritually.

    What illness that stems from the mind is best healed, by healing the mind. The healing power of spiritual practice, the healing power of the Buddhas, like Medicine Buddha, addresses the mind and will help you mum tremendously, I am sure.

    May she be blessed by Medicine Buddha and heal and become well.
    May she soon have sound sleep.

  16. henry ooi on Mar 11, 2013 at 9:44 am

    Dear Giel-Frederic,

    At the tender age of 15, you must have created the merit to be in dharma and dharma has taught you so many good things of which you are practicing like your love and care for your mother.

    May your mother be well, and you too.

  17. Sharon on Mar 10, 2013 at 8:33 pm

    Dear Giel-Frédéric,

    Your deep love and tireless care for your mother moved me. You are such a wonderful son and if my sons love and care for me as you do for your mum, I would be the happiest mum on earth and could not wish for more. My thoughts and prayers go to you and your mum. I salute you for your amazing maturity, patience, strength and exceptional love for your mother.

  18. Julia Tan on Mar 10, 2013 at 8:18 pm

    Hi Giel-Fédérick,
    Very happy to know that you are receiving the Blessed Medicine Buddha Statue from Rinpoche. You have a very kind heart and you love your mother very much. Great that you take care of her. I have a mother who has sleeping problem since my very young age too. My mother also has a very weak body and always need to go and see doctor. She has been on medication to help her to sleep and also to calm down her mind for many years. Through Rinpoche’s blessings, and her faith on Rinpoche, she is now much better and sleeping well every night. Being able to be reborn as mother and son needs a lot of karma connection from the pass. Pray with faith and dedicate your every prayer to her. Things will change for the better.

    Thank you Rinpoche for the beautiful sharing.

    much care,
    Julia

  19. Jay Jae on Mar 10, 2013 at 8:08 pm

    Dear Giel-Frédéric Foubert,
    Reading this story makes me think how much love both you and your mom have for each other. And may I add that you are a very responsible and filial child who is very concerned about your mother’s welfare.

    In your story, it reminds me of the sacrifice and all the hard work my mother has done for me. Thank you for your beautiful story, a very apt reminder for us to remember the kindness of our mothers.

    I wish your mom a speedy recovery and may Rinpoche and Medicine Buddha bless your mom with good health.

    Dear Giel-Frederic Foubert,
    Thank you for sharing such an amazing story. You are doing a very good job, your mother is so blessed to have a wonderful son like you. As a 15 years old boy, you really inspired a lot of people including me. May your mom have good health and long life and I wish you all the best.
    beatrix.

  21. sweekeong on Mar 10, 2013 at 4:43 pm

    Dear Giel-Frederic Foubert, thank you for writing a beautiful story of your mother who has been sick since you’re young but taking care of you nonetheless. A mother’s love is incomparable. By taking care of your mother you have developed a very different and broader perspective of life compare to those who are your age. Responsibility and taking care of others are very much part of Dharma. Your actions will inspire many others to do something about their lives. 🙂

  22. Doreen Teoh on Mar 10, 2013 at 12:36 pm

    Dear Giel-Frédéric Foubert,

    You have such a great mind, kindness and wisdom. You have taught me that it is not the age that determines your maturity, and your mom is so fortunate to have a son like you, who knows her sacrifice and understands her illness. Your mom is a very strong woman, I salute her. I have also read your reply to everyone who posted on the blog, it is so good of you to take the time to thank everyone. I really do not know how to express, it is beyond words. Rejoice for you and your mom, to have receive the wonderful Medicine Buddha from Rinpoche. You have given your mom the greateste gift, besides you. Om mani pedme hum.

    Dearest Giel-Frédéric Foubert,

    You are such a good boy! Although a young boy, you have matured into a fine young man. You are such a kind and caring person. Your mum is truly Blessed to have you. And you too are truly Blessed to meet Dharma at such a young age. Both of you went through a lot yet both of you persevered and found comfort in each other no matter how. Such positive thinking!
    I am very happy that you have won Medicine Buddha and dedicating it to your mother’s sickness. Such a wonderful way to repay the kindness of your mum!
    May the both of you always be Blessed by the 3 Jewels and healthy always!

    Rinpoche’s love and care truly knows NO bounds.. Rinpoche’s compassion trancends countries and time..

    Thank you for sharing, Rinpoche!

  25. Albert Ratchaga on Mar 10, 2013 at 4:33 am

    Very touching, I always believe the children’s action is the best reflection of their parents, because what they saw, they learn.

    With Giel-Frédéric Foubert action, he clearly show’s the greatness of his mother, they have been through so much and yet, these sufferings created even stronger bonding between them, their relationship of Mother and Son are so precious and rare especially for someone who are just 15 years old, so matured and so caring.

    Congratulations Giel-Frédéric Foubert for winning the Medicine Buddha statue, I’m sure this will be the best gift for your mother for what she has done and thank you for sharing with us on how great you mum is.

    Best wishes to you

    Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful and sincere story Giel-Frédéric Foubert.
    Compared with teenagers of your age, you are so much mature. I grew up in the same situation with my mum is always not well and I can understand how you feel. You are very inspiring because your love to your mum is not just on the worldly level to take good care of her, but you are supporting your mum on her spiritual journey and growth too.
    I wish your mum get well soon and both of you advance in your spiritual journey together.

    You are such a loving and caring young boy. You are a real practitioner. You have not forgotten your mother’s kindness and instead of going out and have fun with your friends, thinking your mother is a burden to you, you are taking good care of her. You are very positive, not dragged down by the situation you are in. You are a very good role model to young people nowadays. I wish you luck and may Buddha bless you and your lovely mother.

    What a touching story, and what a devoted son. Giel-Frédéric, the level of your compassion and maturity is way beyond many people who are much older than you. Your ability to comprehend that “Everything has a positive aspect, sometimes it takes quite a while to discover it!” shames the many of us who often complain about our lives. Your mother must be very, very proud to have a son like you…I know any mother would be!

    Thank you for your beautiful story. It is simple and full of care for your mother. I am not sure if you are reading this but I send you my prayers that your mother may recover even more so. It is nice that you follow your mother for spiritual practice and retreats. It is good that you are taking care of your mum and although you cannot do much, but I tell you, you are already doing a lot more than most kids are doing for their parents. Once again, Thank you for sharing and I do hope with Medicine Buddha’s blessings, your mother will heal in time.

    Dear Giel-Frédéric Foubert,

    Very short and simple story about your mother and your relationship with her. There is not flowery decoration to your write-up and yet with these short paragraphs you convey to us your care towards your mother in the past ten years, and I can read from these paragraphs as well your dedication towards dharma practice.

    I feel that you are really a very mature kid, since so many years ago you have already understood the need to take good care of your mother. I can feel it too that you have very strong dedication towards dharma, an aspect that I feel so special because of both your age and your race (being a non-asian).

    You have touched Rinpoche’s heart and you have won yourself the Medicine Buddha, I trust that this statue will help your mother and many other people that you care about.

    Dear Giel,

    Such a wonderful story… you truly are a great son to your mother. Through your writing, I can feel you love and appreciate your mother very much… I can feel the closeness you have for your mother and so very sincere to taking care of her. You are a person with gratitude, a very good quality to have.

    Some people, whom are 3 or 4 times your age… do not even take such good care of their parents. Your story really touched me. So thank you very much for sharing it with everyone.

    I rejoice that you manage to win a beautiful Medicine Buddha statue for your beautiful mother. May she get great blessings and be well physically so that she can practice the Dharma.

    I would like to share a story with you here: The Buddha said, we can give all the money, care, properties etc to our parents, but whatever we have given will never be able to repay the kindness of our parents for they have done so much for us. The only way we can repay the kindness of our parents is by giving them the Dharma.

    I’m glad you gave your mother Dharma, it is the highest gift any child can give their parents.

    Be well.

I am especially glad that you look at things in a very positive way when you said that “This is the positive aspect of my mother’s illness. Everything has a positive aspect, sometimes it takes quite a while to discover it!”.

    You are a brave and lovely boy, I am sure whatever you have done for your mother especially by taking part in this contest in order to win a Menlha statue for her will definitely benefit her.

    Thank you and take care. Do share more with us about your story and practice. May your mother get well soon.

    Dear Giel-Frederic Foubert,

    You have such courage and you write in such a way that it was not difficult to see your love for your mother, or indeed the kind person that you are. I am very touched and happy for you that you do not see what you have to do for your mother as a difficult chore, but instead was quick to realize that she cared for you when you were young. You are still young but not in maturity and spirituality and that is something encouraging for everyone.

    May Menlha help your mother recover and may this Buddha and other Buddhas continue to bless you and your development as a caring and conscientious sentient being. I am glad to have read about you and your mother and please stay close with the Dharma.

    Thank you very much for sharing.

While most teenager your age will hang out with their buddies, you chose to be close to your mother, caring and taking care of her needs; physically and spiritually.

    Dear Giel-Frederic Foubert,

    Your story brought tears to my eyes. Not many people see the positives when they encounter negative things in their lives. I am touched by your story because you are still so young yet you know how to show love and care towards your mom. You remind me of when I was 15 and I had to take care of my mother who was also ill and in deep depression taking many drugs as well. It must be not easy to see your mum in such a condition but you are doing it with so much positivity and a beautiful smile on your face. I am sure Medicine Buddha will bless your mother. Lovely lovely story Giel!

    Dear Giel-Frederic Foubert,
    You are such a caring and loving son to your mother. So different from most teenagers your age. I pray you have the blessings of Buddha to continue caring and loving your mom who is not feeling well. Thank you for sharing your story with everyone. May your story inspire many other people in your similiar situation to be strong and continue caring for their loved ones.

    Dear Giel-Frederic Foubert,

    Your story is very touching. You are 15 years old and your care and love for your mother is truly inspiring to many of us. As you know most of the teenager will be spending their time to have fun or do some self cherishing activities. Maybe due to the illness of your mother had made you who you are today! A responsible, caring and loving person. Not only you taking good care of her physically but spiritually you are helping her as well, this is something very beautiful. I am happy for you to be able to realize everything has a positive aspect in life. Keep up the spirit!!!

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this very inspiring beautiful true story.

    Dear Giel-Frédéric Foubert,

    What a beautiful story. What a beautiful picture. What a beautiful mother and son. It has touched me deeply. I thank you for sharing this beautiful story. Your service, care and compassion towards your mother is the right thing to do and continue. You are on the right track. Always take care of her and always let her know she is very important to you. I will definitely send your mom a blessed Medicine Buddha. I am touched to hear your story and so glad many will read this and send their prayers.
    I wish you and your mom the best from the depths of my heart.

    Rejoice for the Kechara team members for being able to receive the gift from Rinpoche. It is also how much Guru love and care for his students well being. We can repay Guru’s kindness by doing more dharma work and transform ourselves to be better so we can benefit others.

    So much pain and torturing inflicted on the poor animals to satisfy our demand for eggs. I hope this article creates the awareness for all of us to rethink our diet and find alternatives to replace eggs. Getting free range eggs or “kampung” eggs is a slightly better idea as long as we are assured that the farm that produces these eggs provide the free range / “kampung” condition for the chicken. The best idea is to omit egg from our diet completely. Thank you, Rinpoche for this sharing.

    The importance of Fasting Buddha is to remind us that there will be much difficulties in the process to enlightenment and we must overcome them before we can finally achieve success. Fortitude and diligence are the accessories to overcoming the difficulties. It took Buddha six years of hardship and extreme fasting to gain realization on the “Middle Way”, what more for clowns like us? Thank you, Rinpoche for this teaching.

    ***The Blessings of the Guru***

    Guru devotion and clean samaya with one’s Guru are commonly recognised and emphasised as the foundation of Dharma study and practice in all schools of Tibetan Buddhism. From the legendary Padmasambhava of the Nyingma lineage to the revered mahasiddhas Milarepa and Naropa of the Kagyu tradition, to the great Pabongka Rinpoche of the Gelugpa lineage of practitioners; Guru devotion is undisputedly the common and fundamental element for any Dharma realisation, attainment and ultimately Enlightenment… more>> http://www.dorjeshugden.org/blog/the-blessings-of-the-guru

    Do you know about the one-god theory ? This theory was not the domain of established modern religions but were already existent in pre-modern or pagan religions. This video shows how the one god theory is not the exclusive rights of anyone but in fact was a gradual process taken from Pagan religions.

    Extremely well written, excellently performed and superb plot of a film. I came across the film by accident and decided to watch because it’s Bette Davis and the end really touched me so deeply. So very deeply. So very meaningful. In the end, you have to be truthful to those who love you and you really can love them back. You must watch the whole thing to understand the touching and powerful ending: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xr5I6NlueVw&feature=youtu.be

    Sharing with you a wonderful story about a Yogi Rinpoche.

    After he became a Geshe, Trehor Kyorpen Rinpoche went into retreat in a cave on Lhumbo Tse, a high mountain near Lhasa. Throughout the duration of his retreat, he carried only one text – the Lamrim Chenmo, his robes and was accompanied by only a monk-attendant.

    While Trehor Kyorpen Rinpoche was looking for a cave on this high mountain, rocks kept on coming down near him as if thrown from above. He followed the stones and after some time, came upon a cave. The stones were dropping on that cave.

    When he entered the cave, he found a skeleton sitting in the meditation posture. Trehor Kyorpen Rinpoche then sat down and offered a mandala. Upon completion of the mandala offering, the skeleton collapsed. Trehor Kyorpen Rinpoche took it as an auspicious sign and decided to practise in that cave.

    Vegetarianism in Buddhism

    The Lankavatara Sutra, written in the fourth or fifth Century CE strongly advocates abstinence in relation to the consumption of meat. Scriptures such as the Mahayana Jataka tales indicate that meat-consumption is undesirable and karmically unwholesome. So, Mahayana practitioners are strictly forbidden from consuming meat. They are also forbidden from consuming aromatic plants that stimulate the senses such as onions and garlic.

    Dear Elizabeth,

    Rinpoche was very happy to receive your kind offer and hanged it immediately in His resting/work area. Rinpoche also had us placed an incense burner underneath to make incense offering to Lord Vajrayogini daily, and said the iconography is correct and it is a stunning piece.

    Rinpoche was told that you were gifted a Vajrayogini pendant 4 years ago, October 2013, during your visit to Kechara Forest Retreat. I remember Rick and you were captivated by Rinpoche’s Vajrayogini replica http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/travel/my-bodhgaya-vajrayogini.html that was displayed in Wisdom Hall during the tour so you must have very strong affinity with Her.

    Rinpoche always tell us that very few people can actually make or draw Lord Vajrayogini image and He was very glad that you are one of them. Thank you again for your wonderful offering and setting an example of patience, good efforts and consistency.

    With best wishes,
    Pastor Adeline

The Unknown

The Known and unknown are both feared,
Known is being comfortable and stagnant,
The unknown may be growth and opportunities,
One shall never know if one fears the unknown more than the known.
Who says the unknown would be worse than the known?
But then again, the unknown is sometimes worse than the known. In the end nothing is known unless we endeavour,
So go pursue all the way with the unknown,
because all unknown with familiarity becomes the known.

                        Pick the practice, devotion and precepts of Vajra Yogini\'s path over everything and anything in samsara. Samsara has nothing of value and nothing lasting to offer. You are born in suffering, live in suffering, die in suffering and enter bardo and future lives expecting more sufferings. This is not a negative way of looking at things but the truth. If the truth is negative, so it is the truth. Devote oneself to the guru, dharma work, dharma practice and bringing dharma to others compassionately.

Previous lives do resemble current lives especially if they are a recognized incarnation. If notice how similar the previous and current Trijang Rinpoche looks. The eyes, bone structure, expression, long neck, thin and overall look. Beautiful. I\'ve seen this phenomena over and over in many Rinpoche incarnations. Especially when you compare them with pictures of previous and current lives at around the same ages. Something powerfully karmic about this. Tsem Rinpoche

Beautiful! His Holiness Kyabje Trijang Dorje Chang has always been good friends with His Holiness Karmapa. No wonder H.H. Karmapa never spoke against Dorje Shugden. Two reasons perhaps: One is he knows the qualities of Trijang Rinpoche who is a attained being. And Karmapa himself has clairvoyance to perceive the true nature of Dorje Shugden directly. I love to see great beings like this manifesting closeness. When I see, I just want to prostrate to them and thank them for sharing such good examples to someone like me. Praise to the ego-less mind!

All Dorje Shugden prophesizes will come to pass,
 Those who generate refuge and merits will trust, 
 By trusting one will see the good results of his pronouncements,
 By seeing the good results, one\'s path becomes more clear, 
 The path of practice, purification and siddhic results, 
 This would eliminate the samsara within our minds.

    Kyabje Denma Gonsa Rinpoche on Samaya
    ཁྱེད་ཀྱི་བཀའ་སློབ་དོན་སྙིང་དེ།།གང་གི་རྣ་བར་བདུད་རྩི་མོད།།འོན་ཀྱང་འགའ་ཡི་རྣ་ལམ་དུ།། བྲག་ཆ་བཞིན་དུ་འགྱུར་སྲིད་མོད།། ཚང་མས་ཚར་རེ་གཟིགས་རོགས།། Kyabje Denma Gonsa Rinpoche telling people that it is important to have guru samaya. It use to be that way in the great monasteries. We should not create problems and schisms. If we want to practice a protector, then do so, if not it's okay, but don't make trouble. One should just practice the Buddha Dharma well. To do good practice. If you have faith in Dorje Shugden and trust all the way, he will definitely help you. But most important is to practice the dharma. This is his advice in short here. It's good to let more Tibetans hear this holy speech and appeal by this very senior Rinpoche. TR
  • His Holiness the Dalai Lama on Propitiating Protectors & Oracles

    His Holiness the Dalai Lama on Propitiating Protectors & Oracles
    This was on FB and I came across it. His Holiness said in Tibetan institutions there is a lot of propitiating protector/oracles and this is not what Buddhism is about. So they are putting Nechung/Tema oracles within the video to say what is he talking about when he does it himself. This is confusing is the message to his people. TR
