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.

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.

    Everything we offer to Buddha is a form of mind transformation and practise our mind to be focus even when doing water offering. When pouring the water into the bowl we have to recite Om Ah Hum (3 times), think positively and pouring it slowly so it does not spill and leaving the space of a grain of rice before reaching the top. After offering we also have to clean the bowls properly without leaving stain. All this is to train our mind.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing the many benefits and water offering in a simple to understand article.

    Trolls are assiociates as beings of Scandinavian folklore.A large number of different mythological creatures continue to live on in Scandinavian folklore.They have different shapes,habitat and filthy features . There are also numerous tales of trolls told and retold.Trolls are also believed to have the magigal powers, which were folktales ,posses capabilities that are beyond human .What ever it was a remnant of a long-lost reality for sure. I do believe that there’s a very high chance trolls had existed in the past.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing ,i do enjoyed all the stories in these article even though it just folk tales.

    People always expect return on some contribution being done especially in charity events. When the return was under their expectations then they will feel sad or unhappy.
    As Rinpoche said, Dharma is a teachings to transform our mind to become bodicitta or selfless to benefit others without condition. Once we practiced selfless mind, our mind will not be affected by others people reaction.
    What will be my legacy? I think this is not really important to me anymore once I know Dharma teachings from Rinpoche.
    Thanks Datuk May for sharing to benefit more people.

    We are no strangers to the creatures called Werewolves. They are often depicted as the Jekyll-and-Hyde-like monsters in movies who are unable to control their animal instincts when they shift from human form to a wolf-like creature, usually during the full moon. Together with the Vampires who can transform into bats, are my childhood imagery villains, who triggered my curiosity on mythical creatures during younger days. They still do, lol.

    It is gruesome to learn that real life werewolves are actually brutal even when they are in human forms. It is a far depict from the movies and fictions, where they are civil and level headed when in human form. I hope one day science or technology can provide more proves the existence of werewolves, and debunk the reason of this mystical shapeshifter.

    The miraculous power of Protectors’ practice can heal and shield us from negative karma from ripening. Through the blessings of our Guru, coupled with strong faith and trust, the practices will take effect swiftly and effectively. Rejoice to Steven Lee. May he be guided by the Three Jewels always. Thank you, Pastor Seng Piow for sharing the true story with us.

    This is a very touching article. I totally agree that dog is a man’s best friend. They are always so loyal to the owner. However it is sad that not all pet owners are such. Some will only treat them literally as an animal and therefore do not take good care of them. Dogs or any other animals are beings that have feeling. There should not be neglected and be abused by us. This article reminds us to always care for all beings and respect them.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this heartwarming article.

    Its a heartfelt touching article of this faithful dog.Cannot imagine this ,such a wonderful relationship between that dog and the deceased owner.The greatest fear dogs know is the fear that we will not come back for them That i noticed from observing from my pet poodle.In this case this faithful dog knew his owner won’t be back.
    Dogs are loyal, patient, fearless, forgiving, capable of pure love and have feelings too.He must have missed the owner badly that he wanted to accompany the owner all the way to the resting place.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing. May that faithful dog ,continue to serve and well taken, love by the other family members.

    Werewolves are known to be mythical creatures found in fiction instead of lurking in the dark woods,In various parts of the world there were few cases who have gone down in history as real life werewolves Interesting to read it from these post..How far it was true or just legends.,no one really know . Many myths and legends surrounding werewolves .To become a werewolf, it is necessary to be bitten by a werewolf in their form at the time of the full moon. Thats what all of us knew from the movies and from fiction told. Reports of werewolf sightings continued even till this century but mostly in between 1428 and 1447 .The most recent sighting of werewolf sightings in 1972. was in Ohio .but eventually subsided .
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing these interesting article which i do enjoyed reading it,

    Join our blog chat session this Saturday 11AM – 12PM (GMT +8) on the topic of:

    Twenty-Four Holy Places & Eight Great Charnel Grounds part 2 – (focus topic: Eight Great Charnel Grounds)

    At one time there was a god by the name of Rudra who was originally part of Mahadeva’s retinue. He was a very fierce being who also had many of his own consorts. Together with his consorts he began to oppress sentient beings, and promoted violence and unethical behaviour. At that time, Heruka once again arose, and in a dance of great compassionate wrath, liberated Rudra and his consorts from their physical bodies, sending their minds to pure lands. The places where Rudra’s body parts fell became charnel grounds. …read more by clicking the following link:

    This year Wesak Day fall on 10 of May. This day is very special and meaningful to me because I will visit Kechara Forest Retreat(KFR) to join some meritorious event there.
    For me, Wesak is a day to commemorate Buddha Sakyamuni in three aspect( Birth , Enlightened, Nirwana).
    While we celebrate Wesak, we must remind ourselves to learn from Buddha teachings and practice it in order to gain attainment.
    Thanks Rinpoche and Pastor Seng Piow for sharing in order to create more understanding on Wesak Day.

    OMG! This is very touching. To see a doggie who never left go of his owner in spite of death. Way more powerful than many who proclaimed “till death do us part.” Just like the human, not all doggies are as loyal as this tear-jerking pet, but I truly believe almost all doggies offer unconditional love to the person who feeds and cares for them. Even when they are stray animals. There was a stray dog who will run two streets from the entrance of the “Taman” until the car stops in front of the house, just to greet me. You can imagine the warm and conviction in my heart that these beings are more than capable of loving than many of us, human! Thank you for this lovely sharing. I miss my doggie, Sherab.

    Thank you, Pastor Seng Piow, for this amazing sharing. There is no doubt about the ability of our Guru, His Eminence the 25th Tsem Tulku Rinpoche. His incarnations have been compassionate and taken rebirth to return and spread the dharma so that sentient beings can benefit and learn some dharma in our short life.

    We shall never doubt our Guru; but must see that He is one with our Yidam and Protector, an attained being. Even if our Guru does not demonstrate clairvoyance abilities, we must never contest our Guru, for he holds the key (dharma) that can liberate us from eternal suffering in samsara.

    Thank you, Pastor Seng Piow, for the illustrated miracle story on how Rinpoche guided Cynthia and Marici away from danger through protector’s practice. The unseen exist, whether we like it or not. Some of them are malicious and have the affinity or karma with some of us. Hence they can cause harm and disturbance. By engaging in Protectors’ practice like Dorje Shugden and Setrap that have been practiced by the high lamas of the Gelug school of Tibetan Buddhism, we are protected and guarded against harm.

    Rinpoche is compassionate and only want the best for us. His teachings are not meant to show off the power of the divines but offer us a way out from our desperate samsara conundrum that binds us from engaging in deeper spiritual practice. Rinpoche always teaches us to focus on mind transformation and Tsongkhapa practice. How fortunate we are to have met Rinpoche in this lifetime. We must not let this rare and precious opportunity go to waste.

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.

This is a simple chart showing the three main psychic channels used in tantric meditations to control the winds, raise tummo (fire energy), gain higher consciousness and insight and also for gaining siddhis. These channels are used in meditations for controlling the mind, when the mind ejects from the body (phowa) and one\'s death. These three channels are very important. Tsem Rinpoche

 It is so wonderful to be kind to people, be caring, feed them, make sure they are healthy and share dharma if they are interested with them for their future. But simply to be nice to others is worth getting up and being alive...otherwise why be alive to hurt/use/distrust and hate others? No point living that way..must change that.....

    Ronnie asked: Dear Rinpoche and Pastors, I'm studying abroad and very far away from home, seeking guidance and advice as I have no one else I can talk to about this. Please read with an open mind, I don't know where else to go for help. I'm pregnant and it's an unplanned pregnancy. I'm stuck between keeping it or letting it go. I'm young and having a child at my age in the society we live in now would be considered taboo. The father of the child thinks I should let it go because it may cause a setback to both our careers and cause major family issues. He thinks we aren't ready to raise a child especially since we're both still in university and his parents think badly of me even though they've never met me or tried to get to know me. I'm sure no one would ever have the heart to take away a heartbeat but it seems like it isn't the right time to have a child now and if we did go through with it, the child probably won't be able to have the best things life can offer looking at where we are now in terms of finance and maturity. I'm lost, confused and unsure what the right thing to do is now. Any advice at all would be helpful right now. Thank you so very much for taking time to read my story.
    pastor answered: Dear Ronnie, I’m sorry to read that you are going through this situation. I can understand that this situation is tough to go through. You are always more than welcome to come here to ask questions. May I suggest that you talk to either someone in your family or your friends to help you come to an appropriate solution? This is because, what you feel, what you are going through, will change from time to time and you would need someone to talk to, someone that you can lean on through this situation you are facing. Depending on where you are in the world, professional help can also be sought to help you make a decision, which will be the best option for you seeking help. From a Buddhist perspective, the taking of a life is not considered a positive act, therefore those on the Buddhist path, would normally abstain taking a life if possible. However, that being said, one must always weigh the decision oneself. Everything we do in life, necessarily involves karma both positive and negative. That is why Buddhists try to overcome samsara in general. Your situation is complicated because you are abroad, but if possible you should really open up to someone you are close to in order to help you through making this decision on a personal basis. When you talk to someone, whom you are able to express yourself more, you may able to come to better decision that is right for you. There may be other options open to you if you seek help. I personally know women who have been in similar situations. One of these women, let the child go and the other went through the pregnancy and then gave the child up for adoption. You may or may not have thought of this option, but it is one that could be open to you, depending on where in the world you are. Any decision we make in life, however big or small it may seem, has far reaching consequences whether in this life, or in future lives. This is just a part and parcel of life within samsara. However, we should weigh the decisions we make clearly given the situation we are in. We cannot always do this weighing ourselves, but need to talk about our options with others we can rely on such a friends, family or professionals. You should consider doing this, which will help you greatly emotionally, and may give you the grounding you need to make the correct decision for you. I hope this helps.

    Dongho asked: What is a nyung ne practice? According to Lama Zopa Rinpoche, it's a purification sadhana. However, what are the instructions for this? I'm guessing it's to Chenrezig, but how does it work? Also, from what I have read, Vajrasattva practice is only for broken vows while Akshobhya is for regular misdeeds. Does that mean one has to take the Akshobhya practice to purify bad karma from this life and previous instead of Vajrasattva? As for the purification practices, are some like Vajrasattva and Chenrezig only to purify the bad karma and let it come quickly or is it to prevent it from coming? I am confused in it. As for signs, I recited a mantra of White Yangchenma that a Sakya lama, Lama Kunga Thartse Rinpoche, gave me with the Sakya visualizations I read on, and after one mala, I heard some lady call my Korean name even though no one in my neighborhood knows of my name and my family members weren't in the area. What does this mean?
    pastor answered: Dear Dongho, Thank you for your questions, it’s nice to see you back here again. Nyung Ne practice is a purification practice that centres around Chenrezig. It is a very beneficial practice that stems from a holy nun named Gelong-ma Palmo. It is a two and a half day practice that can be repeated many times over and over again to intensify the purification and build a closer relationship with Chenrezig. As well as its purification aspect, the practice is known to generate vast amount of merit, and also compassion, as the practice centres around Chenrezig, the Buddha of compassion. The practice involves taking the eight Mahayana precepts for the duration, fasting, meditating, prostrating and praying. The practice usually entails empowerment into the practice of Chenrezig, therefore the exact meditations, prayers can only be explained to those who have the empowerment. Vajrasattva practice is not necessarily only for repairing broken vows, etc. That’s why it is advised that you engage in the practice at the end of the day, to repair any vows that you may have broken during that day, as well as stopping any negative karma you created that day from multiplying. This would entail reciting the mantra 21 times, together with the four opponent powers. However, if you engage in this practice more intensely, it definitely has the capability to purify all sorts of karma. That is the reason why in Ngondro, or preliminary practices one engages in before tantra, the practice of 100,000 Vajrasattva mantra recitation is an integral part. You can read more about Vajrasattva and his practice here: http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/prayers-and-sadhanas/an-important-purification-practice.html. Within purification practices, some of the karma will be purified completely, so you do not feel its effects at all, but when purifying other karma you will need to feel its effects somehow. For example if you have the karma to be in a car accident and get seriously injured, and you are engaging in any practice, but especially the purification practice, since you have purified most of the karma, you will only experience being in a very minor car accident, with only very superficial injuries. Therefore, in this case, the karma has been purified to the extent that it does not affect you as much, but you still need to feel part of its effect. In regards to any signs that you receive which engaging in the practices given to you by one of your specific gurus, you should report the happenings to that particular guru. He will be able to give you more of an accurate answer, as it may be related to the particular practice that he gave to you. I hope this helps. Thank you.

    Thomas asked: Dear Pastors, When a serkyem set has been used so much and one is ready to get rid of it and replace it with a new one. What is a respecful mode of disposal?
    pastor answered: Dear Thomas, Thank you for your question. Your question shows that you have a lot of respect for offering items, which is very good. If possible, you should try to repair the item if within your means, and doing so make embellishments to make it a better offering item, which can still be used. If this is not possible, then you should dispose of the item with a good motivation. You should think that this item has been used to make offerings to the enlightened beings, but now that it is broken or unusable, you are going to dispose of it, and replace it with a new one. Since it itself is not a receptacle of energies of the enlightened beings, such as a statue, tsa tsa or thangka, it does not require a special dissolution before being disposed of. However since it was used to make offerings, it still requires some form of respect when disposing, and this comes from one’s motivation and the way in which you dispose of it. Usually, when disposing of items in this way, make the motivation that you have used it and that it is now time to dispose of it, and replace it with a new one. When you do this you can dispose of it in a respectful manner. For example, if you are going to throw it away, you do not simply open the trash can and throw it in. You wrap it up in something, like a bag or newspaper and dispose of it respectfully. Another method you can dispose of it is to recycle the object, if the material it is made from can be recycled. That way you are more conscious of the environment as well. I hope this explanation helps. Thank you.

    Curious asked: Dear pastors In a recent youtube video something like paying respect to deceased ones, pastor Nirel Patel explained that merits are like the interest and good karma is like the principal sum. So merits always regenerate themselves and hence do not get used up but good karma is like the principal sum so it gets used up. So my question is what are practices that generate merit? And can we turn a mundane daily activity into a meritorious one? Maybe can you provide an example?
    pastor answered: Dear Curious, Thank you for your question. First, to clarify a point, in regards to good karma, you are right, it is like a principal sum in a bank account, but you take away from it when you experience something good in your life, and you add to it when you do good deeds. Merit on the other hand, once accrued never diminishes, therefore when something is based on merit, it is based on the energies of this never diminishing sum, which you could say is like interest. In short, the principal sum when talking about karma is always added to and subtracted from. However, when talking about merit, once you have it, there is no way to destroy it, you will always benefit from it. There are various ways to explain how to generate merit. I will explain a way that I find easiest to understand. In normal life, when we go about performing any sort of activity, be it ‘good’ or ‘bad’ we do so out of ignorance of the true nature of existence, and it is usually self-motivated. For example, we work our entire lives to generate monetary income, so that we have enough money, resources, and materials goods to be comfortable. This is self-motivated, but it is the accepted way the world works these days, and is part and parcel of being bound to samsaric life. On the other hand, the act of merit making can be categorised into three parts: i) motivation, ii) the act itself, and iii) dedication. Let’s start with motivation, when engaging in various virtuous acts, we should have the motivation that by engaging in the act, we have the motivation to alleviate the suffering of someone else, and that may we gain enlightenment so that we can benefit them in the future. The second is the act itself. The third is to dedicate the energy of the virtuous act to gaining enlightenment. These three are what make merit. This may be a little confusing, so let me give an example: giving help to a homeless person. Whereas in ordinary life, this is something praised as a very good deed, it does not create merit without motivation and dedication. In order for this to become merit, one must set the motivation that one is giving help to the homeless free of the eight worldly concerns, to alleviate their suffering and also making the motivation that you will achieve enlightenment for the sake of the person or people you are helping. Then after you have helped them, you dedicate the energy created to the spiritual journey towards full enlightenment to help all sentient beings, while at the same time benefiting as many sentient beings as possible on the way there. This transforms the act into not only a virtuous action but also one that generates merit. On the other hand, if you were to help the homeless without these, you are creating good karma, which although beneficial, keeps you bound to existence within samsara. As it is the goal of Buddhist practice to overcome the cycle of samsara, a Buddhist would want to generate merit instead of good karma. I hope this explanation helps. Thank you.

    D.A. asked: If Begtse Chan is not from Mongolia, what are his real origins or story exactly? And which lamas offer his empowerment? As for Manjushri Nagarakshasa, which lamas specifically offer his empowerment and practice?
    pastor answered: Dear D.A. Thank you for your question. Begtse, is also known as Chamsing, or Jamsaran in Mongolian. As mentioned in an earlier sharing with someone who also asked a question about Begtse, the practiced was introduced to Tibet from India by the translator Nyen Lotsawa, and is considered one of the main protectors of the Hayagriva cycle of tantras. According to the scriptures that derive from the Sakya tradition, who incorporated the practice from the translators, and in which tradition Begtse became a very important protector, Begtse in a previous life was born many eons ago. In that particular life, he was born as the younger prince in a royal family. His name was Drag Gye, and his older brother’s name was Drag Den. Over time both princes developed differing religious beliefs, to the point where they could not get along with each as they both held their own religious views strongly. As was the custom during that time, they decided to settle their differences through logical debate, with the loser having to convert to the winner’s religion. This custom was also prevalent in ancient India, and there are many stories of such debates occurring between the great masters of the past and those of other faiths. Drag Gye lost the various debates, but ran away instead of converting to his older brother’s religion. Drag Den caught him, and tried to punish him for breaking the rules of debate and going back on his promise. Drag Gye told his brother that even if he was killed he would not give up his religion, however if Drag Den let him go, that in the future when Drag Den became enlightened, he would protect his teachings. With that Drag Den let him go, and gave him a set of copper armour, a stick, and a bow and arrow. Drag Den also gave Drag Gye a new name: Sog Dag Yam Shi Mar Po. After this incident the two brothers never saw each other again in that lifetime. Many lives after that Drag Den was reborn as Prince Siddharta, who eventually became enlightened and is now known as Buddha Shakyamuni. Drag Gye, or Sog Dag Yam Shi Mar Po, was reborn in a cemetery in the North West direction. His parents gave birth to two eggs, one was a coral-like colour and the other was an agate-like colour. These two eggs flew high into the sky and reached the heavenly realms, there they subdued the gods. Then flying back down to earth, they subdued many nagas. Eventually they even came to threaten their own parents. The parents petitioned the Dharma protector Ekajati for her help, who threw her own staff (khatvanga) at the eggs, and broke them apart. From the coral-like coloured egg came a ferocious man with yellow hair, he proclaimed that his name was ‘Sog Dag Yam Shi Mar Po’. When he emerged he was wearing a set of copper armour, wielding a stick, copper sword, and a bow and arrow. From the agate-like coloured egg came a female who was blue in colour, her teeth were like shells, she had turquoise eyebrows, and her hair was made of fire. She emerged wielding a copper knife, ritual dagger (phurba), rode a terrifying bear and wore an intricate necklace made of agate and lapis lazuli. It was then that Ekajati once again took action, and subdued them, after which they became Dharma protectors. The male figure became known as Begtse, and the female as his sister. When you propitiate Begtse, his sister is automatically included and aids practitioners as well. As for which lama offer his practice and empowerment, most lamas do not advertise which teachings or practice they hold. Therefore you should respectfully approach lamas and ask them if they have the practice and can bestow it, or if they know of any lamas that have the practice, depending on how much you want to practice Begtse. Similarly, this applies to those lamas who have the practice of Manjushri Nagarakshasa. However, this practice is included in the Rinjung Gyatsa series of empowerments. This unique cycle of teachings, includes all 4 classes of tantric practices, and includes the practice of Manjushri Nagarakshasa. Therefore those lamas who have received the complete transmission, and have kept their commitments for this practice, are qualified to pass this on to others. I hope this explanation helps. Thank you.
