Nasihat dari Dharmapala Dorje Shugden kepada Anggota Kechara Forest Retreat

18 November 2015

Banyaknya ajaran Dharma yang telah diberikan sang Lama, seharusnya membuat Anda seperti sebuah taman yang telah disemai banyak benih. Dan seiring bertambahnya tahun, seiring berlalunya waktu, areal pertanian Anda bertambah, menghasilkan sayuran dan buah-buahan yang baik serta hal-hal lain yang dapat dimakan. Jangan sampai setelah bertahun-tahun menerima Dharma dari Lama Anda – melalui tindakannya, melalui kata-katanya, melalui contoh berpraktik dan berperilaku, melalui sesi ajaran resmi, melalui kebaikannya dan perilakunya – tanah pertanian milik Anda menghasilkan semakin sedikit hasil yang layak dikonsumsi. Paham?

Setiap tahun, layaknya seorang petani – petani spiritual – tanah Anda yang awalnya hanya sepetak harusnya berkembang menjadi dua petak, tiga petak, empat petak, lima petak, 10, 15, 20, dan seterusnya. Apapun yang Anda pelajari di petak pertama dapat diterapkan juga di petak kedua, ketiga, dan keempat. Anda tidak perlu diberi instruksi baru untuk mengerjakan petak kedua, ketiga, dan keempat. Apapun yang Anda tetapkan di petak pertama, apapun rumusnya, apapun metodenya, apapun ajaran yang Anda gunakan, terapkan juga pada petak kedua, ketiga, dan keempat.

Jadi, dengan kata lain, jika Anda menerapkan suatu metode, Anda akan memiliki hasil, Anda akan mendapatkan hasil dalam wujud bahan-bahan yang dapat dimakan. Dan nantinya, setiap tahun tanah pertanian Anda akan berkembang dan tumbuh. Ini adalah ladang pikiran Anda. Ini adalah area pengembangan diri Anda. Ajaran itu seperti benih. Anda tidak boleh mengambil benihnya lalu membuangnya di tanah orang lain dan Anda tidak mendapatkan keuntungan. Anda tidak boleh membajak tanah, menyiangi rumput liar dan menyirami tanaman yang merupakan usaha, etika, sumpah, konsistensi tapi kemudian tak ada yang tumbuh. Untuk memiliki benih dan memiliki tanah, Anda harus melakukan penyiangan, pemupukan, penyiraman, perlindungan dari serangga, burung, dan yang lainnya. Dan upaya-upaya tadi tak lain adalah usaha, etika, aplikasi, konsistensi (dalam praktik Dharma).

Kala pikiran Anda mengalami naik-turun, segera tangkap! Jangan biarkan pikiran Anda ngeloyor lebih jauh! Tidak ada satupun momen dalam hidup Anda di mana pikiran Anda memberi Anda manfaat, jika Anda memikirkannya baik-baik. Tidak ada titik dalam hidup Anda di mana pikiran Anda memberi Anda manfaat jangka panjang dan sejati. Segala sesuatu yang dibawa oleh pikiran Anda berakhir dengan kesedihan, kekecewaan, lingkungan yang tanpa welas asih, ketakutan, kemarahan, renggangnya hubungan dengan sesama dan, yang paling penting, hambatan terbesar kita – zona nyaman. Kita merasa nyaman dengan negatifitas, kita terbiasa dengan negatifitas dan kemudian kita mengharapkan orang-orang untuk menjangkau kita, untuk merawat kita, untuk menjaga kita bahkan ketika kita sudah berusia 30, 40, 50 tahun. Semua ini harus dihentikan.

Bertingkahlah sesuai umur Anda. Berperilakulah sesuai usia Anda. Dan kembangkan pikiran sesuai dengan banyaknya tahun yang Anda habiskan untuk belajar Dharma serta jumlah ajaran Dharma yang telah Anda terima. Jangan bertingkah seperti Anda bergabung dengan Dharma beberapa bulan yang lalu. Jangan bertingkah seperti Anda masih anak remaja berusia 15, 16, atau 20 tahun.

Kalau ditegur, balik marah; saat dipuji, gembira setengah mati– ini adalah pikiran anak kecil. Ketika dimarahi, kaji kenapa, atasi masalahnya, lalu melangkah maju. Ketika dipuji, pahami bahwa Anda berada di jalan yang benar, bergembiralah tetapi jangan terlalu senang karena bahagia dan sedih muncul dari keadaan pikiran yang sama. Bahagia dan sedih berasal dari kondisi pikiran yang sama karena muncul dari pikiran yang sama, yaitu pikiran yang terdelusi. Kebahagiaan mengarah ke kesedihan, kesedihan mengarah ke kebahagiaan dan sebaliknya, terus dan terus, dalam lingkaran yang tidak pernah berakhir.

Karena itu jangan terikat pada rasa senang karena itu palsu. Tidak ada kebahagiaan di Samsara. Jangan terikat pada kesedihan, karena kesedihan terbesar ada di tiga alam rendah, bukan seperti yang Anda alami sekarang. Apapun yang Anda alami sekarang, apapun yang Anda rasakan sekarang, jangan biarkan perasaan itu meledak-ledak tanpa kendali. Jangan biarkan berlama-lama, jangan biarkan bertahan, jangan biarkan perasaan itu berlama-lama.

Yang Mulia Tsem Rinpoche (kanan) bersama kedua gurunya, Geshe Tsultrim Gyaltsen (kiri) dan Yang Suci Kyabje Zong Rinpoche (kedua dari kiri).

Jangan biarkan emosi, pemikiran dan perilaku negatif berlama-lama. Mengapa? Karena Gurumu bukan ayahmu, bukan ibumu, bukan pacarmu, bukan istri atau suamimu atau seseorang yang bisa kamu perlakukan selayaknya orang biasa. Perilaku Anda, bahasa tubuh Anda dan cara Anda berinteraksi dengan Guru Anda adalah hubungan yang sama sekali berbeda dari hubungan Anda dengan orang lain di masa lalu. Anda tidak boleh bereaksi terhadap Guru Anda sebagaimana Anda bereaksi terhadap orang lain – yang pernah Anda temui di masa lalu – karena orang lain yang Anda temui juga diliputi delusi sama dengan Anda. Oleh karena itu ketika Anda mengabaikan mereka, ketika Anda marah pada mereka, ketika Anda mencintai mereka, ketika Anda bersikap netral dengan mereka, itu semua hanya menambah delusi mereka dan sebaliknya.

Apa pun yang berasal dari sang Guru akan mengurangi delusi Anda, kalau Anda mau menerimanya. Apapun yang diberikan oleh Guru atau Anda berikan kepada Guru akan mengurangi delusi dan ilusi Anda. Oleh karena itu, bagaimana Anda berperilaku dan bertindak pada Guru Anda harus sangat berbeda dari hubungan apa pun yang Anda miliki di masa lalu. Sebab hubungan Anda dengan Guru Anda adalah sakral. Mengapa sakral? Karena pencapaian paling sakral yang bisa kita miliki adalah transformasi pikiran kita dari orang yang egois dan mau menang sendiri menjadi orang yang memikirkan orang lain dan berfokus keluar. Dan semakin sering anda melakukan hal ini, anda akan melihat ketidakbahagiaan, depresi, rasa rendah diri, kurangnya penghargaan diri Anda akan makin berkurang. Mengapa demikian? Saat Anda melakukan lebih banyak aktivitas positif, hal itu akan membentuk pola pikir positif. Seluruh tindakan positif yang telah Anda lakukan berasal dari Guru Anda.

Pikirkan baik-baik! Apakah Anda melakukan lebih banyak hal positif sejak bertemu Guru Anda, atau malah Anda melakukan lebih banyak hal positif sebelum bertemu Guru Anda? Jika Anda telah melakukan lebih banyak hal positif setelah Anda bertemu Guru Anda, maka itu adalah bukti nyata, bukti logis, bahwa hubungan Anda dengan Guru Anda menghasilkan tindakan positif, transformasi positif. Adakah orang dalam hidup Anda sebelum Guru Anda yang mengajari Anda melatih pikiran, mentransformasi diri ke arah yang lebih baik, mengajari tentang welas asih, toleransi, Bodhicitta, menerima orang lain apa adanya, pengampunan, dan kesabaran – adakah?

Dan setelah Anda bertemu Guru, apa ajaran yang sudah diberikan pada Anda? Apakah Anda didorong untuk melakukan sesuatu? Apakah Anda dilatih untuk melakukan sesuatu? Apakah Anda dimarahi? Apakah Anda dipuji? Anda dimarahi dan dipuji serta diberkati untuk mengembangkan pikiran Anda. Sejak Anda bertemu Sang Guru, Anda didorong, diarahkan, digiring, disemangati, dan diberi penghargaan untuk meningkatkan kualitas pikiran Anda. Sebelum ini, siapa yang pernah melakukan itu untuk Anda? Siapa yang memiliki pengetahuan untuk melakukan itu untuk Anda? Siapa yang memiliki kebijaksanaan untuk melakukan itu untuk Anda? Siapa yang memiliki pikiran yang melampaui samsara untuk melakukan itu untuk Anda?

Sebelum bertemu Guru Anda, tidak ada yang memberi Anda ajaran transformasi pikiran seperti ini, untuk berpikir lebih tinggi, untuk memikirkan orang lain, untuk berpikir lebih jauh, maka dari itu Guru Anda adalah sebuah khazanah Dharma. Anda harus menghormatinya, Anda harus menjalin hubungan dengan Guru Anda secara berbeda dengan hubungan apa pun yang Anda jalin dengan orang lain karena hubungan Anda dengan Guru Anda tidak seperti hubungan dengan orang lain. Jika Anda mengembangkan hubungan positif yang konsisten dengan Guru Anda, maka pikiran yang positif dan konsisten akan berkembang dalam kesadaran Anda.

Anda mungkin berpikir, “Beberapa orang tidak seperti itu.” Itu bukan salah Guru. Contohnya – ada banyak umat Buddha yang melakukan kejahatan keji yang lebih buruk daripada orang-orang ateis. Itu tidak mencerminkan Buddha; hal itu mencerminkan apakah orang tersebut menerapkan atau tidak menerapkan Dharma. Oleh karena itu, jangan perlakukan Gurumu seperti kamu memperlakukan orang lain. Anda harus memperlakukan Guru Anda dengan sangat hormat. Anda harus memperlakukan Guru Anda dengan penuh ketakziman, dengan sikap tubuh yang baik dan pikiran yang fokus. Anda harus bicara pada Guru dengan penuh khidmat. Seperti yang dikatakan dalam 50 Bait karya Pandita Ashvagosha Yang Agung, kala berbicara mengenai Guru Anda kepada orang lain, seorang murid tak boleh merujuk pada sang Guru hanya dengan namanya semata. Seorang murid harus selalu bersikap khidmat serta menambahkan gelar kehormatan sebelum namanya (misalnya Yang Mulia) ketika Anda menyebutkan nama beliau pada orang lain, sembari melipat tangan Anda sebagai sikap hormat.

Saat Anda melakukan hal ini akan terjadi dua hal, pertama, Anda mengirimkan pesan pada diri Anda untuk bersikap khidmat dan juga mengirimkan isyarat pada lawan bicara Anda bahwa sungguh mereka amat beruntung dapat menerima ajaran dari seorang Guru. Melihat ketakziman Anda, mereka akan tergerak untuk bersikap serupa. Bila mereka memiliki jalinan karma dengan Guru Anda mereka akan datang mendekat pada Guru Anda; jika mereka punya jalinan karma dengan Guru lain maka mereka akan menemukan Guru mereka. Apapun itu, tindakan khidmat dan takzim pada Sang Guru akan menghantarkan mereka menemukan Dharma.

Hal terpenting bukanlah mereka bertemu Guru Anda; hal terpenting adalah mereka bisa menemukan Dharma melalui Guru yang mana saja.

Hubungan apa pun yang Anda miliki sebelum bertemu Guru tidak bermanfaat bagi pikiran Anda, tidak bermanfaat bagi karma Anda, tidak bermanfaat bagi kehidupan masa depan Anda atau bahkan kehidupan Anda saat ini. Hubungan apa pun yang Anda miliki dengan Guru Anda akan bermanfaat bagi kehidupan ini, kehidupan masa depan, dan terutama pikiran Anda. Dengarkan, fokus, konsentrasi, dan renungkan apa yang paling sering keluar dari mulut Guru Anda. Pastinya tentang transformasi pikiran, tentang kesabaran dan toleransi, tentang membawa diri Anda ke tingkat yang lebih tinggi dan berurusan dengan orang lain dengan cara berbeda dari cara yang Anda ketahui sebelum ini. Jika Anda mendengarkan semua ajaran ini dari Guru lalu Anda menerapkannya dengan segera – bukan besok, bukan lusa, bukan saat Anda sedang ingin, bukan saat Anda beristirahat, bukan saat Anda merasa lebih baik – maka petak ladang Anda akan segera tumbuh dan hasilnya akan melimpah.

Dalam membangun lahan Kechara Forest Retreat, banyak dewa dan roh lokal telah ditundukkan. Oleh karena itu, tidak ada satupun dari kalian yang sakit, baik itu penyakit serius atau ringan. Kalian juga tidak mengalami kecelakaan di tanah ini. Terkadang memang ada ketidakharmonisan. Tapi mohon diingat – dan ingat ini dengan jelas – setiap kali Anda melakukan pekerjaan pembangunan, akan ada ketidakharmonisan dalam pikiran. Sebagian besar dewa di sini memang sudah ditundukkan tapi kala pekerjaan pembangunan makin intens dan kita semakin gaduh, maka kita akan semakin mengganggu ketenangan lahan ini, apalagi ketika orang-orang berdatangan, melempar barang, meludah, berteriak, menjerit, maka terkadang roh-roh dan dewa-dewi lokal di tempat ini akan merasa terganggu lagi.

Mereka sama seperti manusia, bisa ditenangkan tapi bisa juga merasa terganggu lagi. Setelah ditenangkan tidak berarti mereka tetap bisa tenang. Artinya mereka bisa merasa terganggu lagi, tidak selalu tetap tenang. Tanda pertama adanya dewa lokal atau dewa tanah yang tidak senang adalah ketidakharmonisan dalam kelompok. Ketidakharmonisan antara Anda dan Guru Anda, ketidakharmonisan antara satu sama lain. Ini adalah tanda pertama karena cara pertama para dewa lokal, terutama di daerah ini, menyerang adalah dengan menciptakan ketidakharmonisan. Dengan menciptakan ketidakharmonisan, Anda memisahkan diri; ketika Anda berpisah, pekerjaan tidak akan selesai. Paham?

Rupang Dorje Shugden di Kechara Forest Retreat

Satu hal penting yang harus dilakukan : kelompok KFR ini harus melakukan retret secara terus menerus, semua orang di ruangan ini, bahkan orang-orang yang tinggal di tanah ini, selama proses pembangunan. Hal ini amat penting! Anda sedang melawan karma Anda, Anda sedang melawan karma orang lain yang akan mendapatkan manfaat dari kehadiran bangunan suci dan Anda juga memerangi produksi karma baru Anda sendiri yang muncul setiap harinya dari pikiran yang mementingkan diri sendiri.

Sebagai satu kelompok, kalian semua harus melakukan retret Manjushri Hitam. Sungguh beruntung ajaran itu telah diberikan tempo hari. Saya sangat senang. Sebagai satu kelompok, Anda harus melakukan retret Manjushri Hitam, mengumpulkan 100.000 mantra secara kolektif. Terutama mantra utama Manjushri Hitam, OM PRASO CHUSO DURTASO DURMISO NYING GOLA CHO KALA DZA KAM SHAM TRAM BEH PHET SOHA. Mantra utama ini harus dilakukan secara kolektif sebanyak 100.000 kali. Sekali lagi, kolektif dalam satu kelompok, Manjushri Hitam. Artinya dilafalkan bersama. Paham?

Manjushri Hitam (klik pada gambar untuk memperbesar)

Manjushri Hitam akan menghasilkan banyak efek luar biasa. Anda mungkin berpikir, “Mengapa harus begini? Kenapa harus begitu?” Karena dari sudut pandang karma dan astrologi, antara berkah dengan kebutuhan serta keperluan Anda sifatnya berbeda. Paham? Manjushri Hitam akan mencegah kutukan yang dikirim orang-orang ke Kechara, baik itu berupa umpatan, kutukan, gosip, pembicaraan negatif, niat buruk serta kecemburuan dari tetangga Anda – beberapa tetangga Anda – atau dari tempat lain, bahkan dari beberapa orang yang mengaku sebagai praktisi spiritual. Jadi, Manjushri Hitam, jika dilakukan dengan baik, akan mencegah umpatan, celaan negatif, kutukan, serta kata-kata buruk. Paham? Praktik ini juga akan menenangkan dewa-dewa lokal yang berkali-kali merasa terganggu.

Bersikaplah harmonis satu sama lain. Saling menyayangi, saling menghargai. Habiskan lebih dan lebih banyak waktu di Kechara Forest Retreat. Paham? Carilah lebih banyak alasan untuk berada di sini daripada di kota. Letakkan energi Anda di sini untuk membuatnya tumbuh, jadilah pionir. Paham? Dan jangan berada di sini untuk sekedar duduk-duduk, bersikaplah proaktif. Lihat sekeliling Anda! Jaga agar tempat ini tetap terpelihara dengan baik. Jaga agar tempat ini tetap terawat. Kumpulkan dana, sibukkan diri Anda untuk menyebarkan Dharma dengan cara modern. Penjangkauan sosial dan interaksi sosial saat ini memang harus dilakukan dengan cara modern.

Lakukan retret, jadilah bahagia. Bersikaplah harmonis satu sama lain. Tenangkan pikiran Anda dan lihatlah tempat ini sebagai rumah. Rumah yang sebenarnya ada di pikiran, bukan tempat. Jadi jika dalam pikiran Anda, Anda berpikir di sini adalah rumah, maka ini adalah rumah, terlepas dari letak geografisnya. Paham?

Tunjukkan contoh yang baik. Waktunya akan segera tiba untuk kabar baik lainnya. Kabar yang akan mempengaruhi organisasi ini secara positif dan berkembang lebih jauh lagi, paham? Salinglah menjaga satu sama lain. Saling mengayomi. Saling menjaga satu sama lain selayaknya kalian adalah saudara sedarah.

Sehubungan dengan aneka rencana pembangunan di tanah ini, pastikan Anda melakukan retret dan jangan menunggu dari satu proyek ke proyek lainnya. Jangan menunggu Lama Anda menghubungi Anda. Lama memiliki alasan untuk menunggu Anda supaya menghubunginya, supaya Anda dapat menabur sebab-sebab munculnya sesuatu dengan meminta (petunjuk kepada Lama) lagi dan lagi dan lagi. Telah dikatakan (dalam teks Dharma) untuk menerima Dharma, kita harus melakukan sujud serta memberi persembahan (indrawi) dan persembahan mandala tiga kali kepada Guru kita lalu memohon ajaran sebanyak tiga kali, dari hati, bahkan sebelum beliau mau menyetujuinya. Dan alasan tindakan ini adalah untuk menciptakan sebab-sebab untuk menerima ajaran. Paham?

Jadi karena itu, untuk proyek apa pun yang ingin Anda lakukan di tanah ini, haruslah Anda minta izin dahulu pada Guru dengan rendah hati. Selesaikan pekerjaan Anda secepat mungkin. Jangan bermalas-malasan, jangan mengulur-ulur waktu, jangan biarkan suasana hati Anda menghalangi tanggung jawab Anda. Jangan biarkan kemarahan Anda menghalangi pekerjaan Anda. Jangan biarkan keraguan Anda menghalangi tugas Anda. Mengapa? Karena tak satu pun dari kualitas ini menguntungkan Anda sebelum Anda bertemu Dharma, dan pasti tidak akan menguntungkan Anda selama mengerjakan pekerjaan Dharma.

Hal terpenting adalah – jagalah hubungan Anda, samaya Anda dengan Guru Anda harus tetap murni. Apa yang dimaksud dengan samaya dan hubungan (yang murni)? Hati yang tulus. Hati yang terbuka. Penghargaan kepada Sang Guru. Saat Guru menghargai Anda, Anda harus menghargai Guru dan selalu menunjukkan rasa hormat yang besar. Sikap hormat berarti menempatkan Guru di sebuah tempat khusus di hati Anda, hubungan Anda dengan sosok ini adalah ekstra-normal, paranormal, ekstra-duniawi, ekstra-terestrial.

Yang Mulia Tsem Rinpoche ke-25

Yang Mulia Tsem Rinpoche ke-25

Apa artinya? Hubungan ini asalnya bukan dari dunia ini, bukan dari bumi ini, bukan dari kehidupan saat ini, bukan dari kenyataan yang Anda alami saat ini. Ia berasal dari banyak kehidupan yang lampau, di mana Anda pasti memiliki hubungan dengan Lama ini. Karenanya Anda ada di sini lagi untuk bertemu lagi, untuk melakukan sesuatu lagi bagi beliau. Beberapa dari Anda telah melanggar sumpah perlindungan kepada Guru, dan beberapa dari Anda bahkan telah melanggar sumpah serius dalam kehidupan Anda sebelumnya. Sang Lama tahu akan hal ini, karenanya beliau selalu berusaha membuat Anda dekat dan akrab dengannya.

Alasan pikiran Anda sering naik-turun adalah janji yang dilanggar di kehidupan sebelumnya, terutama dalam kaitannya dengan sumpah yang serius. Oleh karena itu ketika Anda memutuskan hubungan Anda, ketika Anda melanggar sumpah Anda, ketika Anda memutuskan hubungan Anda dengan Tiga Permata sedemikian rupa, Anda akan kembali – karena Anda telah melakukan sejumlah tindakan Dharma – ke dekat Sang Lama tetapi namun keadaan pikiran Anda terganggu dan terus menerus mengalami naik-turun, itu semua disebabkan karena kurangnya integritas dalam memegang sumpah di kehidupan sebelumnya.

Bisa jadi Anda dahulu seorang biksu, seorang biksuni, seorang Bodhisattva, seorang guru, seorang pencari arhat, seorang yogi/ pertapa, seseorang yang berlindung pada Guru – tapi Anda dengan ceroboh dan tanpa rasa hormat, membuang sumpah Anda dan kemudian memanjakan dan menceburkan diri Anda dalam kenikmatan dunia. Sekarang hal itu menghasilkan pikiran yang tidak bisa yakin sepenuhnya (akan ajaran Sang Guru). Tetapi setelah melakukan hal itu, karena Anda telah memegang sumpah selama beberapa saat, maka Anda akan menemukan Sang Lama lagi. Apakah kamu paham? Anda telah menemukan Lama Anda lagi karena pernah bersumpah, tetapi pikiran Anda naik-turun tidak karuan karena Anda melanggar sumpah itu. Paham?

Buddhist Fundimentals 03

Obat dari masalah ini: latihlah diri Anda secara konsisten. Lakukan retret dengan tujuan memurnikan kesalahan. Lakukan pekerjaan Dharma Anda dengan konsisten dan yang paling krusial: pikiran yang baik, teruslah berusaha untuk keluar zona nyaman agar bermanfaat bagi orang lain melalui pekerjaan Anda. Apa pun yang Anda perlukan untuk dibangun di sini, lakukan permohonan kepada Lama Anda pada waktu yang tepat dan juga dalam kondisi gambar rancangan dan rencana anggaran yang sudah siap. Semua kebutuhan akan datang jika Anda berusaha, paham?

Terus membangun. Lakukan tanggung jawab Anda dengan serius dan jangan lengah. Sekali lagi, saya ulangi – semua kualitas negatif yang Anda miliki sebelum bertemu Dharma tidak pernah menolong Anda. Oleh karena itu tidak akan berguna bagi Anda saat melakukan berpraktik Dharma. Karena itu hilangkan mereka. Adapun semua kualitas positif yang Anda miliki sebelum Dharma telah bermanfaat bagi Anda sehingga selama berpraktik Dharma, hal itu juga akan bermanfaat bagi Anda. Jadi tingkatkan kualitas positif yang Anda miliki, paham?

Bangunlah diri kalian bersama-sama. Saling mengayomi. Saling membantu. Kurangi amarah. Hari ini, Lama Anda telah datang (kepada Anda). Banyak petunjuk baik yang telah diberikan. Anda memiliki dukungan saya untuk instruksi-instruksi tersebut. Bangun tempat ini dengan harmonis, saling bekerjasama, dan tanpa kepicikan. Paham?

Saya akan selalu membantu; ikuti ajaran Sang Buddha, saya akan selalu mendukung. Saya akan selalu berdoa pada Tiga Permata (Triratna) untuk kalian semua.

    A card and hard disc from Sean Wang was truly a smart idea afterall. Nobody could imagine such idea but he did it. Placing thumb drives with millions and billions of Vajrayogini her holy mantra in Tibetan into the holy statue. Not only that drawing pictures too . Such a great idea whereby people come to make offerings, prostrate, circumambulate, collecting huge amount of merits for themselves and their love ones. Thanks to Sean Wang/

    Reading this blog kindly reminded us of the most cherished people in our lives that’s our parents. Mother’s Day that is on this Sunday 12th of May and Father’s Day falls on the third Sunday in June. Teachers Day too important ……a day to honour and recognise their roles in our lives. Rinpoche always emphasised that we should not avoid the responsibility of repaying the kindness of the people who have helped us in our life. The only true way to honour and repay their kindness is to let them know that their kindness meant a lot to us . Do something good for them or someone else as this practice ultimately gives enormous power and possibilities for positive effects in many lives not just our own life. Simple saying thank you and expressing our appreciation can go a long way.
    Reading all those powerful quotes by Rinpoche gives us a lesson and example.
    Thank you Rinpoche and writers team for sharing

    For the last 60 years, the Tibetan Government-in-Exile has exploited, abused, marginalised and persecuted their people. For the first time in six decades, since the Tibetans first entered a life in exile, we are seeing more and more examples of ordinary Tibetans speaking up against this exploitation. In years gone past, Tibetans would never have dared to voice their objections to the leadership. They have been mixing religion and politics ever since. A majority of the Tibetans in India are stateless, and been sufferings quietly. Hundreds of thousands of Tibetans were killed during the Chinese invasion, prompting the young Dalai Lama to flee into exile in 1959. Because of all the exploitation the younger Tibetan generation are willing to express and speaking up.
    Reading the commentary by a anonymous member of the Tibetan community tells us how those desperate Tibetans experienced all this while and to voice the truth. Interesting read. In order to achieve peace it is necessary to address the root of violence and conflict by having dialogue between the Chinese Government and the Tibetan Government.

    The legendary Ra Lotsawa Dorje Drak was born in the village of Nyenam,Southern Tibet amidst many auspicious signs of a high rebirth. Ra Lotsawa was a great tantric master and is one of the most controversial Buddhist teachers in Tibetan history who had used wrathful means to subjugate his opponents. One of the previous lives of Dorje Shugden is the renowned lama Ra Lotsawa Dorje Drak, Amongst his great deeds, Ra Lotsawa was known to have renovated many with Samye, Tibet’s first monastery. He also sponsored numerous new translation works, the copying and recitation of sacred scriptures, and the installation of Buddha statues. Interesting read of the biography of this great master. Ra Lotsawa Dorje Drakpa left behind a legacy of many great lamas, practitioners and preserving, as well as spreading this tantric system in Tibet.
    Thank you Rinpoche and Pastor David for this sharing.

    Dorjé Shukden is a controversial Tibetan Buddhist protector deity, believed by some to be a wrathful spirit and by others to be an enlightened Buddha. The controversy that arose from this divided understanding over the last fifty years has impacted the Tibetan Buddhist community globally and continues to be relevant to observers and practitioners of Buddhism the world over. The Yellow Book, based on its cover. It was composed by Kyabje Zemey Rinpoche in 1970, but it was not published until 1973. Kyabje Zemey Rinpoche never intended for his book to be published but somehow it was published without his permission. According to the introduction, Kyabje Zemey Rinpoche authored this book in 1970 based on teachings given by Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche, the junior tutor to the 14th Dalai Lama.The original intention of this book was to be complementary material to Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche’s book, Music Delighting An Ocean of Protectors, which was published six years before the Yellow Book. The Yellow Book did not circulate widely until several years later. It is a collection of cautionary tales and teachings but sadly some influential powerful officials and people who had corrupted the Gelug lineage . Interesting read.
    I am looking forward to finish reading this book.
    Thank you Rinpoche and Martin for this interesting sharing.

    Firebirds are mythical birds found in the folklore of many cultures. They are often depicted as magical birds with feathers that glow like flames or the sun. The mythology surrounding firebirds varies between cultures, but there are some common themes. In Greek mythology, the mythical bird known for its ability to be reborn from its ashes, symbolizing immortality and renewal. It is often depicted as a beautiful and majestic creature with brightly coloured feathers and a long tail. Interesting read of the stories related to the mythology, legend and folklore in this blog.

    Cham Dance is the traditional dance of Tibetans. It involves a series of masked dances, which are usually performed by monks and laymen, wearing colourful costumes. These dances are vibrant and lively and are performed during annual festivals. Dorje Shugden Cham dance is one of them, is said to have originated in the Himalayan range and by far the date and year are kept as a treasured secret to this date. The Dorje Shugden cham dance is rare but not an obscure lineage; there are certain monasteries in Tibet who have practised this dance for hundreds of years. Dorje Shugden Cham dance is a colourful and impressive performance, performed by Buddhist monks who practiced Dorje Shugden. The Cham dance is very powerful and through the dance which depicts the truth of Dorje Shugden.There are a few variations of accounts on the history and the lineage of Dorje Shugden, written by various attained lamas in the last 350 years. Collected works on Dorje Shugden written by His H H Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche considered the most accurate account. As describes clearly how Dorje Shugden for many lifetimes had manifested high level Mahasiddhas. Dorje Shugden and his entourage of thirty-two deities are all depicted in the Cham dance as a World Peace Protector. Interesting read.
    Thank you Rinpoche great sharing.

    Momo is a dumpling made of all-purpose flour and filled with either meat or vegetables. Inspired by Tibetan dumplings, the dish is a very popular Nepali street food. It is one of my favourite foods. Last year while in Kathmandu I am fortunate given the opportunity to learn and made vegetarian Momos.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing as it reminds me of trip there visiting some of the Holiest sites and trying my hand making momos then.

    Bouddha, also known as Boudhanath, is a stupa in Kathmandu, Nepal which is located about 11 km from outskirts of Kathmandu. Its massive mandala makes it one of the largest spherical stupas in Nepal and the world. The Boudhanath Stupa pyramid is coated with over 60 pounds of gold, is one of the largest and one of the most significant Buddhist monuments in the world. This great Stupa is home to precious relics and this semi-circular structure stands out with its majestic mandala, recognized by UNESCO in 1979 as a World Heritage Site. The Boudhanath is the most sacred sites in Tibetan Buddhism outside of Tibet, reflecting the cosmological tenets of Buddhism. Was there last year June joining thousands of pilgrims circumambulate the stupa.
    The aerial view of this Boudhanath Stupa is magnificent indeed. Looking merely at the pictures is a blessing.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

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.
~Tsem Rinpoche

  • What the meat industry figured out is that you don't need healthy animals to make a profit.

    What the meat industry figured out is that you don't need healthy animals to make a profit.
    Sick animals are more profitable... farms calculate how close to death they can keep animals without killing them. That's the business model. How quickly they can be made to grow, how tightly they can be packed, how much or how little can they eat, how sick they can get without dying... We live in a world in which it's conventional to treat an animal like a block of wood. ~ Jonathan Safran Foer
