Pertikaian Dalam Diri Adalah Pertanda Baik (Bahasa Indonesia)

4BIGS01

Kepada sahabat di seluruh dunia,

Saya menemukan kutipan kalimat yang sarat makna dan memutuskan untuk memberikan penjelasan singkat. Saya ingin membawa kejernihan dalam pikiran kita setiap hari dan pada saat sangat dibutuhkan. Kita semua memiliki kebingungan atau menggunakan kebingungan ini sebagai alasan untuk menghindari sesuatu yang sangat baik untuk kita, sehingga seringkali menyebabkan kita jatuh dalam berton-ton penyesalan di kemudian hari. Jangan sampai hal ini terjadi. Dengarkan video ini dan lihat sudut pandang yang berbeda.

Saya mengharapkan yang terbaik untuk anda!

Tsem Rinpoche

Kebanyakan orang merasa nyaman dalam samsara. Mereka tidak memiliki aspirasi tulus untuk keluar dari samsara; mereka hanya ingin samsara menjadi sedikit lebih baik.

Motivasi yang mendasari untuk keluar dari samsara sangatlah langka, bahkan bagi mereka yang mengunjungi wihara.

Banyak orang yang belajar meditasi dan lainnya, tetapi motivasi yang mendasari adalah untuk membuat mereka merasa lebih baik.

Dan bila mereka merasa tidak enak, bukannya menyadari bahwa ini adalah sebuah pertanda baik, mereka pikir ada yang salah dengan Dharma.

Kita selalu mencari cara membuat diri kita nyaman dalam rumah penjara. Kita mungkin berpikir bahwa bila dinding ruang sel kita dicat warna hijau muda yang cantik, dan digantungi beberapa lukisan, maka kita tidak berada di penjara lagi.

~ Jetsunma Tenzin Palmo

TRANSKRIP

Jadi ketika anda merasa tidak enak mengenai pekerjaan Dharma, menjadi sukarelawan atau menyumbangkan waktu untuk Dharma dan komitmen terhadap Dharma… Ketika anda merasa tidak enak, jangan berpikir Dharma membuat anda merasa tidak nyaman, sang guru membuatmu merasa bersalah, atau komunitas Dharma bersifat negatif. Ini adalah pertanda baik.

Ini adalah pertanda baik bahwa kebijaksanaan anda mulai bangkit dan pikiran anda semakin jernih. Bukannya melarikan diri, anda harus semakin mendedikasikan diri; lakukan lebih banyak Dharma, libatkan diri dalam Dharma yang lebih banyak, praktikkan lebih banyak Dharma, lakukan lebih banyak pekerjaan Dharma, ambillah lebih banyak tanggung jawab karena anda berada pada jalan yang benar. Karena ini adalah proses alami, proses yang tepat agar pikiran kita semakin baik.

4BIGS02

Setiap hari, saya melakukan sedikit media sosial, untuk mengekspresikan pikiran, dan kalimat-kalimat, dan kesadaran, dan pengertian, dan hal lain yang saya baca mengenai Dharma. Saya menggunakan Twitter dan Facebook untuk memposting mengenai berbagai topik, dan juga menulis artikel di blog mengenai berbagai topik. Tetapi tentu saja, favorit dan semangat saya selalu tercurahkan pada Dharma.

Saya rasa semangat untuk melakukan Dharma berasal dari mengetahui bahwa kita terperangkap dalam Samsara, tidak ada kesenangan dalam Samsara, dan semua hal dalam Samsara mungkin dibuat terlihat indah, tetapi pada akhirnya akan membawa ketidakbahagiaan dan penderitaan.

Puncak yang kita rasakan dalam Samsara, puncak kebahagiaan atau apapun namanya, puncak kebahagiaan yang kita rasakan dalam Samsara datang dengan harga mahal yang harus kita bayar.

Dan pada akhirnya, puncak ini menjadi semakin berkurang dan habis ketika kita berusia lanjut karena apa yang kita alami ketika kita masih muda, tidak mungkin kita rasakan ketika kita sudah lanjut usia.

4BIGS03

Hari ini, ketika saya sedang menelusuri dinding Facebook saya, saya menemukan pidato yang sarat makna, dalam, dan menggugah dari Jetsunma Tenzin Palmo.

Seperti yang kalian ketahui, Jetsunma adalah seorang biksuni yang tingkat praktiknya sangat tinggi dan telah melakukan retret meditasi di tempat terpencil selama lebih dari satu dasawarsa. Bila ingatan saya benar, 12 tahun. Kemudian beliau bekerja untuk memajukan kesempatan bagi wanita dalam Dharma, membangun biara khusus biksuni, dan pada saat yang sama menjelajahi dunia dan menyebarkan ajaran suci Sang Buddha.

Kutipan kalimat beliau benar-benar sarat makna, dan hanya mungkin berasal dari seseorang yang telah mencapai sesuatu dalam pikiran mereka, sebuah tingkat meditasi yang tidak bisa mengalami kemunduran. Mari saya bacakan dan kemudian saya akan memberikan penjelasan singkat untuk anda.

Kebanyakan orang merasa nyaman dalam Samsara. Mereka tidak memiliki aspirasi tulus untuk keluar dari Samsara; mereka hanya ingin Samsara menjadi sedikit lebih baik.

Motivasi yang mendasari untuk keluar dari Samsara sangatlah langka, bahkan bagi mereka yang mengunjungi wihara.

Banyak orang yang belajar meditasi dan lainnya, tetapi motivasi yang mendasari adalah untuk membuat mereka merasa lebih baik.

Dan bila mereka merasa tidak enak, bukannya menyadari bahwa ini adalah sebuah pertanda baik, mereka pikir ada yang salah dengan Dharma.

Kita selalu mencari cara membuat diri kita nyaman dalam rumah penjara. Kita mungkin berpikir bahwa bila dinding ruang sel kita dicat hijau muda yang cantik, dan digantungi beberapa lukisan, maka kita tidak berada di penjara lagi.

– Jetsunma Tenzin Palmo

Baris pertama kalimat beliau adalah kebanyakan orang merasa cukup nyaman dalam Samsara, mereka tidak benar-benar memiliki aspirasi untuk keluar dari Samsara, mereka hanya ingin Samsara menjadi sedikit lebih baik.

Jadi banyak orang yang sebenarnya hanya ingin situasi mereka menjadi lebih baik. Bagi beberapa orang, lebih banyak uang, rumah yang lebih besar, ruang yang lebih sejuk, lebih banyak pakaian, makanan yang lebih lezat, dan inilah aspirasi dari masyarakat pada umumnya. Mereka ingin merasa lebih nyaman.

Dan kalimat beliau yang kedua adalah motivasi yang mendasari manusia untuk keluar dari Samsara sangatlah langka, bahkan bagi mereka yang mengunjungi wihara. Dan ada orang yang berpikir bahwa, “Wow, Samsara benar-benar tempat yang sulit: tempat ini tidak ada akhir, dan merupakan siklus yang berkesinambungan, samsara berpromosi dan membangkitkan delusi. Samsara mempromosikan banyak penderitaan dan membangkitkan delusi yang membuat kita semakin tenggelam dalam penderitaan, dan saya menginginkan sesuatu yang lebih baik. Saya ingin mencari Dharma; saya ingin mencari seorang guru, dan mungkin saya ingin pergi ke wihara.” Pikiran seperti ini sangatlah langka, bahkan diantara mereka yang mengunjungi wihara.

Kebanyakan orang yang pergi ke wihara biasanya mencari solusi instan; ada yang ingin mencari cara lebih baik untuk mengatasi rasa bersalah, cara lebih baik untuk mencari kebahagiaan atau kekayaan; atau mereka mencari cara yang mudah untuk mengatasi masalah, atau mendapatkan situasi yang lebih baik, atau perbaikan dalam situasi mereka.

4BIGS04

Jadi, ada berbagai alasan mengapa orang pergi ke wihara, tetapi bukannya untuk mendapatkan hasil dari praktik Dharma mereka. Hal ini sangatlah langka.

Seperti yang dikatakan Tenzin Palmo, banyak orang yang belajar meditasi dan lainnya, tetapi motivasi yang mendasari adalah agar mereka merasa lebih baik.

Orang melakukan puja, mantra, berdoa pada pelindung, mereka berdoa pada yidam, mereka melakukan retret khusus, mereka melakukan meditasi khusus, membaca buku, merenung, melatih nafas, tetapi jarang sekali yang menggunakan praktik dan metode Dharma untuk mendapatkan bentuk pikiran yang lebih tinggi, guna menaklukan Samsara dalam diri dan di sekitar mereka.

Tetapi motivasi yang mendasari, menurut Tenzin Palmo, adalah untuk merasa lebih baik. Mereka menginginkan perbaikan dalam hidup mereka.

Karena motivasi yang mendasari, dan “motivasi sebenarnya” dari melakukan pekerjaan Dharma bukan untuk mendapatkan kebebasan, atau membebaskan orang lain, atau mendapatkan tujuan tertinggi, yaitu pencerahan, praktik Dharma membuat mereka merasa tidak enak. Saya ulangi, membuat mereka merasa semakin tidak enak.

Bukannya menyadari bahwa ini adalah pertanda baik, mereka merasa ada yang salah dengan Dharma.

4BIGS05

Jadi, ketika mereka belajar dari seorang guru, mereka mendapatkan pengertian lebih banyak dari sang guru, mereka mendapatkan lebih banyak pengetahuan dari membaca Dharma, mereka melihat murid-murid yang tingkatnya lebih tinggi, atau mereka merenung, mereka menyadari bahwa banyak hal yang salah dalam hidup mereka.

Mereka menyadari bahwa motivasi, cara berpikir, berlaku, dan bersikap, bukannya menciptakan kebahagiaan, kedamaian, dan keharmonisan, pertumbuhan, bangkitnya diri yang lebih baik, diri yang lebih tinggi, melainkan membuat delusi, menipu diri agar berpikir mereka tidak bahagia, mereka tidak nyaman.

Mengapa? Karena ini adalah kali pertama dalam hidup kita, ada orang yang mengatakan bahwa uang tidak membuat kita bahagia. barang-barang mahal tidak membuat kita bahagia.

Memiliki kapal pesiar, pacar cantik atau ganteng, nama, ketenaran, perhatian, usia muda, rambut indah, pakaian indah, liburan ke luar negeri, mobil besar, rumah besar, barang-barang bermerek, tidak membuat kita bahagia dan tidak seharusnya kita berfokus pada hal-hal ini.

Pada awal perjalanan spiritual, kita menerima dan mengetahui kebenaran dari hal ini. Dan pada dasarnya kita mengetahui dari mengamati lingkungan sekitar bahwa banyak orang yang memiliki hal-hal ini, tetapi mereka tidak bahagia. Mereka yang menginginkan hal-hal seperti ini juga tidak bahagia, dan kita mengetahuinya. Tetapi ini hanyalah pengertian intelektual semata.

4BIGS06

Jadi ketika kita baru memulai Dharma, kita mengerti dan memiliki sudut pandang idealis bahwa, “Oh ya, saya mengerti bahwa materialisme tidak membuat saya bahagia, saya ingin mengeksplorasi diri, saya ingin mencari jati diri.”

Tetapi, semua ini adalah pengertian intelektual semata.

Tetapi ketika mereka dihadapkan pada pilihan Dharma dan materialisme; atau Dharma atau materialisme; praktik Dharma, bekerja untuk Dharma atau perjalanan ke luar negeri; sahabat Dharma atau pergi minum-minum dan berpesta; retret di tempat terpencil atau mencari dan mempertahankan kekasih; bekerja sukarela untuk Dharma atau bermalas-malasan di rumah. Ketika ditantang dan harus membuat keputusan antara Dharma dan Samsara – maka dilema itu datang.

Dilema terjadi karena mereka memiliki kebijaksanaan dan pengertian lebih. Mereka mengetahui apa yang benar.

Dan bukannya mereka tidak mengerti secara intelektual. Mereka mengerti secara intelektual, tetapi menolak menerapkannya.

Ketika mereka menolak menerapkannya, maka terjadilah konflik. Konflik apa? Konflik ini tidak berasal dari guru, atau dari Dharma, atau dari wihara, atau dari saudara/i Dharma. Konflik ini terjadi karena anda mengetahui apa yang harus dilakukan tetapi anda tidak menerapkannya. Dan ketika anda tidak menerapkannya, anda merasa tidak enak.

Dan ketika anda merasa tidak enak, anda berkata, “Dharma membuat saya merasa tidak enak; sang guru membuat saya merasa tidak enak; teman-teman membuat saya merasa tidak enak; wihara membuat saya merasa tidak enak; wihara itu tidak baik; wihara itu terlalu keras; wihara itu suka memaksa; Dharma itu sulit.”

Kita suka menyalahkan dan berkata Dharma membuat saya merasa tidak bahagia. Tetapi, bukan Dharma yang membuat saya tidak bahagia.

Ketika kita menderita kanker dan menjalani pengobatan. Ketika menjalani pengobatan, anda merasa sakit. Sangat sakit. Ketika anda menjalani pemeriksaan, anda merasa sakit. Ada banyak efek samping yang dirasakan. Ketika anda menjalani pengobatan kanker, anda menjalani banyak pemeriksaan, anda ditusuk, darahnya diambil, banyak obat yang harus diminum, disuntik, dan banyak perubahan dalam diet dan lingkungan.

Dan bila ketika sakit kita menyalahkan pengobatan kanker dan berhenti menjalaninya, maka kanker akan menguasai tubuh kita. Rasa sakit ini tidak berasal dari obat atau dokter, atau perawat, atau rumah sakit. Rasa sakit ini berasal dari kanker.

4BIGS07

Apapun yang diberikan para dokter dan perawat dan rumah sakit, sebenarnya adalah proses untuk menghilangkan penyebab rasa sakit. Karena bila anda sehat, anda tidak perlu diperiksa, anda tidak perlu menjalani kemo, dan anda tidak perlu diobati, anda tidak perlu melakukan apa-apa. Kemoterapi sangat menyakitkan untuk beberapa orang dan banyak efek sampingnya. Tetapi, kita tidak bisa menyalahkan kemoterapi. Pertikaian ini disebabkan karena kita tahu apa yang harus dilakukan, tetapi kita tidak melakukannya. Dan hal ini membuat kita tidak enak hati.

Dan bila kita melarikan diri dari Dharma, menyalahkan Dharma, membenarkan bahwa Dharma itu tidak baik, wihara itu tidak baik, orang-orang Dharma tidak baik, guru-guru Dharma tidak baik, maka pembenarannya juga akan seperti itu.

Tentu saja, akan ada sekelompok kecil orang-orang yang setuju dengan anda. Tentu saja, akan ada sedikit orang yang akan mendukung anda dan berkata bahwa pendapat anda benar, dan untuk sementara waktu anda akan merasa baik-baik saja, puas hati dan merasa tenang karena anda memiliki pendukung yang memiliki perasaan sama. Tetapi, para pendukung ini berasal dari beberapa kategori.

Ada orang seperti anda yang tidak ingin menerapkan dan menghadapi kebenaran, atau mereka yang benar-benar tidak mengerti.

4BIGS08

Jadi seperti contoh anda pergi ke sebuah negara dimana warganya mengidap AIDS. Dan ketika anda pergi ke negara yang warganya mengidap AIDS, sebuah negara berkembang, atau sebuah negara miskin, dan mereka tidak memiliki pengetahuan atau pengertian mengenai AIDS, dan mereka tidak mengenal AIDS, bagaimana cara penyebarannya, dan bagaimana pengobatannya, dan bahwa AIDS itu berbahaya, dan bagaimana penyakit ini bisa mempengaruhi dan merusak keluarga dan sahabat dan orang-orang yang berhubungan dengan anda.

Dan anda pergi ke negara ini dan anda melakukan hubungan badan tanpa perlindungan, dan anda terus melakukan hal ini dan menikmatinya, dan melakukannya dengan banyak orang, dan anda menulis di media sosial, “Hey, saya bertemu dengan seorang gadis cantik, saya bertemu dengan wanita itu, saya bertemu dengan pria ini, saya bertemu dengan pria itu, dan kami memiliki waktu menyenangkan, dan besok saya akan bertemu orang lain, dan orang lain lagi”.

Dan tentu saja, akan ada sekelompok orang di media sosial yang mendukung anda dan berkata, “Hey, luar biasa! Mari lakukan hubungan badan tanpa memilih dan tanpa perlindungan!” Mengapa? Karena mereka tidak mengerti bahaya AIDS, mereka tidak pernah mendengar mengenai hal ini. Mereka tidak mengetahui hal ini. Mereka tidak mengerti mengenai hal ini. Mereka melihat gejala-gejala penyakit, mereka melihat orang-orang yang meninggal, tetapi mereka tidak tahu mengapa. Tentu saja mereka akan mendukung anda.

Dan akan ada sekelompok orang lain yang berpikir, “Oh, saya telah mengidap AIDS. Saya marah pada dunia. Semua salah dunia. Saya mengidap AIDS karena salah dunia. Ini salah mereka. Jadi saya tidak peduli, saya ingin bersenang-senang, saya akan berhubungan badan dengan siapapun yang saya suka dan tidak peduli apakah penyakit saya akan menular atau tidak, saya tidak peduli.” Jadi anda juga akan bertemu dengan orang-orang dari kategori kelompok ini yang mendukung anda dan berkata, “Yeah, bersetubuh tanpa memilih-milih sangatlah bagus.”

Tetapi bila anda bertemu dengan orang yang tahu bagaimana AIDS menular, dan mereka tahu penderitaan yang diakibatkan penyakit ini, dan mereka bekerja merawat penderita AIDS, atau mereka memiliki kerabat, sahabat, suami, pasangan, istri, atau anak yang menderita AIDS, dan mereka melihat penderitaan mereka, mereka akan berkata, “Jangan lakukan hal itu. Jangan memberikan penderitaan pada orang lain. Jangan berkopulasi tanpa perlindungan dengan orang lain karena anda akan membawa rasa sakit, anda akan memisahkan anggota keluarga, dan anda akan menyebabkan masalah, anda akan memiskinkan mereka.”

Dan anda sekarang tahu, anda tahu apa yang harus dilakukan. Anda tidak seharusnya berkopulasi tanpa perlindungan.

4BIGS09

Dan kemudian terjadilah sebuah pertikaian. Akan ada sebuah pertikaian dalam diri anda, dan anda menyalahkan pendidikan AIDS. Anda menyalahkan orang-orang yang memberitahu anda mengenai AIDS, dan anda menyalahkan perawat, anda menyalahkan orang-orang yang memberikan anda informasi. Mereka membuat anda merasa tidak enak hati dan putus asa.

Dan ketika anda pergi berkeliling untuk bersetubuh tanpa perlindungan, mereka melaporkan anda kepada pihak berwenang, mereka memberitahu pemerintah, dan kemudian anda berkata mereka terlalu keras, mereka kejam.

Tetapi sebenarnya, mereka menghentikan anda menularkan penyakit yang bisa menyakiti keluarga lain baik dari segi keuangan, emosi, fisik dan menyebabkan kematian. Bahkan, mereka sangat pengasih karena mereka tidak hanya memikirkan satu orang saja, hanya anda, mereka memikirkan orang-orang disekitar anda.

Jadi, bila anda menggunakan media sosial atau anda ingin banyak pendukung yang berkata, “Hey, kopulasi tanpa pilih-pilih sangat bagus.” maka anda akan merasakan akibatnya dari orang-orang yang tidak mengetahui apa-apa mengenai AIDS. Ini hanyalah contoh.

Anda akan mendapatkan penyakit ini dari orang-orang yang menderita AIDS tetapi tidak peduli lagi karena mereka marah kepada dunia, dan mereka ingin membalas dendam, dan mereka tidak peduli tentang penyakit yang mereka tularkan. Bahkan mereka ingin menularkannya agar orang lain juga menderita seperti mereka.

Tetapi dari orang-orang yang mengetahui mengenai penderitaan yang disebabkan penyakit ini, yang telah mengalaminya, mereka peduli, dan mereka tidak ingin orang lain merasakan hal yang sama dan akan menasihati, “Jangan lakukan hal ini.” mereka bahkan mungkin melaporkan anda ke pihak berwenang dan berkata, “jangan lakukan hal ini”.

Dan bila anda mengatakan mereka kejam dan keras, itu adalah pandangan anda yang salah.

4BIGS10

Seperti analogi ini, di sebuah wihara, ketika guru dan saudara/i sedharma menjelaskan kepada anda mengenai keburukan Samsara, masalah yang disebabkan amarah, keegoisan, kemalasan, serakah, mencuri, dan berbohong dan anda tertangkap melakukan hal ini, dan anda terus melakukannya, dan mereka menasihati anda baik-baik, mereka menasihati anda baik-baik lagi, dan lagi, dan lagi, dan mereka menentang anda, dan mereka menjelaskan kepada anda, dan bahkan mereka mencoba menghentikan anda dari melakukan hal ini. Ini bukanlah mau mengendalikan.

Ini bukan hal negatif. Bukannya mereka jahat, atau keras, atau menyulitkan. Mereka melakukan ini karena rasa peduli, dan bila anda mengatakan mereka, wihara, guru atau institusi Dharma itu tidak baik, anda menolak tanggung jawab.

Jadi bila anda merasa bersalah, dan anda mengalami konflik dalam diri, maka pertikaian dalam diri anda bukanlah pertanda buruk.

Inilah yang dikatakan Tenzin Palmo. Pertikaian ini bukan pertanda buruk. Mengapa?

Karena anda mengalami pertikaian antara sesuatu yang baik yang tidak biasa anda lakukan dan sesuatu yang telah anda lakukan ribuan kali dan tidak membawa anda kemana-mana, yang memberikan sedikit rasa senang tetapi pada akhirnya membuat anda tidak bahagia. Jadi anda mengalami pertikaian ini.

Dengan anda merasakan pertikaian ini berarti anda memiliki pengetahuan lebih, perenungan dan meditasi yang anda lakukan memberikan hasil, atau pandangan dan pengetahuan anda bertambah. Jadi pertikaian ini bukan disebabkan oleh Dharma, tetapi hati nurani, kebijaksanaan, pikiran yang jernih dan baik berkata, “Jangan lakukan apa yang anda lakukan dulu.” Pikiran anda yang baik dan kebijaksanaan, kejernihan pikiran anda berkata, “Berhentilah. Dharma adalah hal yang baik. Apa yang diajarkan Dharma adalah baik.”

4BIGS11

Dan proses transformasi ini bukan berarti anda bangun di suatu pagi dan melepaskan Samsara. Proses transformasi ini berasal dari penolakan, kemarahan, tidak menerima, mengerti, dan menerapkan.

Jadi, ketika anda merasa tidak enak mengenai pekerjaan Dharma, menjadi sukarelawan Dharma, komitmen Dharma terkait dengan waktu, komitmen Dharma pada umumnya… ketika anda merasa tidak enak, bukannya berpikir bahwa Dharma membuat anda merasa tidak enak, sang guru membuat anda merasa bersalah, atau komunitas Dharma bersifat negatif, ini adalah pertanda baik.

Ini adalah sebuah pertanda bahwa kebijaksanaan dan kejernihan pikiran anda meningkat. Bukannya melarikan diri, anda harus menambah usaha, lakukan lebih banyak Dharma, libatkan diri dalam lebih banyak Dharma, praktikkan lebih banyak Dharma, lakukan lebih banyak pekerjaan Dharma, ambilah tanggung jawab lebih banyak, karena anda berada di jalan yang benar. Karena ini adalah proses alami, benar dan membuat pikiran kita menjadi lebih baik.

Jadi kita harus berhenti melihat guru kita sebagai seseorang yang militan. kita harus berhenti melihat wihara sebagai asrama tentara. Kita harus melihat Dharma bukan sebagai sesuatu yang membuat kita merasa bersalah. Kita harus melihat saudara/i Dharma bukan sebagai orang yang penuh delusi atau merupakan anggota sebuah kultus.

Kita harus melihat seorang guru Dharma sebagai orang yang memberitahu kebenaran dengan kebijaksanaan, pengetahuan, dan mungkin pengalaman dari banyak kehidupan sebelumnya, dan mendengarkan kata-kata dan mengerti bahwa beliau berusaha memberikan manfaat bagi anda.

Kita harus melihat saudara/i Dharma sebagai komunitas yang telah menerima, mengerti, merenungkan, meditasi dan mendapatkan hasil, dan mereka juga berkomitmen dalam jalan ini.

4BIGS12

Kita juga harus berpikir bahwa metode yang diterapkan kepada setiap orang berbeda-beda, tidak bisa disamaratakan. Dengan beberapa orang, anda harus berbicara terus terang, dengan beberapa orang anda harus bersikap sangat lembut, dan dengan beberapa orang lainnya anda harus berputar-putar. Ada banyak jenis orang. Jadi satu metode tidak bisa diterapkan untuk semua. Karenanya jangan mengira guru anda hanya mempunyai satu metode.

Di samping itu, anda tidak bisa melihat wihara sebagai beban. Anda harus berpikir bahwa wihara adalah suatu tempat yang dibangun dari sumbangan, cinta kasih, energi, waktu dan kontribusi banyak orang untuk menciptakan suatu tempat fisik dimana kita bisa berkumpul untuk melakukan pekerjaan Dharma yang baik dan memberi manfaat bagi orang lain.

Dan bila anda meremehkan sang guru, institusi Dharma, dan orang-orang dalam wihara, berarti anda meremehkan semua sumbangan, kerja keras, dan semua kontribusi yang dilakukan setiap orang.

Jadi tidak masuk akal. Mengapa kita mau melakukan hal ini? Mengapa kita ingin meremehkan sesuatu yang merupakan investasi besar seseorang, bahkan diri anda sendiri?

Jadi karenanya, bukannya Dharma, atau guru, atau wihara, atau saudara/i Dharma yang membuat anda merasa tidak enak. Bukan mereka yang keras, bukan mereka yang sulit.

Karena hati nurani anda semakin jernih dan pengertian anda mulai meningkat, maka anda mengalami pertikaian ini. Dan sekarang tugas anda adalah memenangkan pertikaian ini.

“Kita selalu mencari cara membuat diri kita nyaman di rumah penjara. Kita mungkin berpikir bahwa bila dinding sel kita dicat warna hijau muda yang cantik, dan digantungi beberapa lukisan, maka ini bukan penjara lagi.”

Jadi, bila kita mengganti lokasi dan pakaian kita, pergi jalan-jalan, bertemu orang-orang, ikut lebih banyak acara makan malam, menghabiskan waktu di tempat-tempat mewah, pergi ke restoran bagus, membeli mobil baru; semua ini seperti mengganti lokasi dan situasi di sekitar kita untuk mengganti apa yang sebenarnya kita ketahui. Semua ini tidak akan berhasil.

Kecuali bila kita sangat pandai menyangkal diri, menipu diri, dan kita tidak sungkan mengambil resiko, dan konsekwensinya adalah penyesalan, kesepian, waktu yang terbuang, dan kehilangan banyak kesempatan yang akan membawa kita kepada sesuatu yang baik.

Jadi bila anda tidak sungkan mengambil resiko, dan konsekwensi itu datang, jangan mengeluh.

Bila di masa lalu, kita menghadapi kesulitan pada situasi tertentu, dan karenanya kita merasa tidak nyaman, bertikai, dan tidak bahagia, maka ini adalah sebuah tanda bahwa kita tidak siap menghadapi konsekwensi, karena kesulitan ini berasal dari konsekwensi dari tindakan kita di masa lalu.

Jadi, jangan mudah berkata, “Saya tidak peduli mengenai Karma, saya tidak peduli konsekwensinya, saya telah mencapai tahap dimana saya tidak peduli apa yang dipikirkan orang lain, atau konsekwensi karma, atau lainnya.

Karena bila anda tidak peduli, anda tidak akan berbicara, anda tidak akan bertikai. Anda peduli. Sudah pasti anda peduli.

Jadi karenanya, ini adalah sebuah paragraf yang indah dari Jetsunma, sangat sederhana, sarat makna. Saya ingin memberikan penjelasan singkat karena saya membaca paragraf ini di Facebook. Saya akan bacakan sekali lagi dan mengambil kesimpulan.

Kebanyakan orang merasa nyaman dalam Samsara. Mereka tidak benar-benar memiliki aspirasi tulus untuk keluar dari Samsara; mereka hanya ingin Samsara sedikit lebih baik.

Motivasi yang mendasari seseorang untuk keluar dari Samsara sangatlah langka, bahkan bagi mereka yang mengunjungi wihara. Ada banyak orang yang belajar meditasi dan sebagainya, tetapi motivasi yang mendasari adalah harapan agar mereka merasa lebih baik.

Dan bila mereka merasa semakin tidak enak, bukannya menyadari bahwa ini adalah sebuah pertanda baik, mereka pikir ada yang salah dengan Dharma.

Bila kita selalu mencari cara untuk membuat diri kita nyaman di rumah penjara. Kita mungkin berpikir bahwa bila dinding sel dicat warna hijau muda yang cantik, dan digantungi beberapa lukisan, maka ini bukan lagi sebuah penjara.

– Jetsunma Tenzin Palmo

Bila beliau adalah guru anda, dan anda mengalami pertikaian dalam diri dan dia mengatakan hal ini pada anda, maka mungkin saja anda tersinggung, atau merasa anda adalah target, atau merasa bahwa beliau mengatakan sesuatu yang menyakitkan.

Tetapi bila anda membaca, anda mungkin berkata, “Oh yeah, ini baik.” Jadi semua ini tergantung sudut pandang anda. Sudut pandang apakah kita mau menerima kebenaran atau tidak.

Bila kita melihat sesuatu dari sisi kebenaran, maka kita tidak akan sakit hati. Malahan kita akan merasa tercerahkan. Ini adalah kebebasan.

Jadi saya harap penjelasan ini membantu, dan saya ingin menekankan: guru Dharma, wihara, orang-orang, saudara/i Dharma, ajaran Dharma, Buddha, yidam, pelindung Dharma dan lainnya berada di sini untuk menolong kita, memberikan yang terbaik untuk kita, dan hal ini sangat penting untuk diketahui.

Dan bila kita terus berpikir bahwa mereka adalah musuh kita, kita menyerang musuh yang salah. Musuh kita bukan yang disebutkan di atas. Musuh kita berada dalam diri. Dan inilah yang kita butuhkan untuk menyerang musuh. Dan ketika kita mengerti hal ini, kita merasa tidak enak.

Perasaan tidak enak ini berasal dari hati nurani kita, dan karena kita sudah tahu apa yang harus dilakukan, kita harus melakukan hal yang benar. Lakukan Dharma. Terima kasih.

    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/
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing .

    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

    Achi Chökyi Drölma is the Dharma Protector of the Drikung Kagyu school of Tibetan Buddhism. She also appears as a protector in the Karma Kagyu refuge tree as Achi Chodron. Although Achi has a particular committment to protect the Drikung Kagyu, she is recognized and practiced by all lineages of Tibetan Buddhism. To benefit the beings in samsara, she displays a limitless number of manifestations at different times and in different space dimensions. She vowed to protect the Drikung Kagyu lineage and its practitioners, removing inner and outer obstacles , a revered figure in Tibetan Buddhism, embodies the harmonious union of compassion, wisdom, and protective energy. a powerful wisdom-protector who guards and protects all sincere Dharma-practitioners to rely on her.

    Dorje Shugden is a special Dharma Protector who quickly fulfils wishes and sincere prayers. He brings healing, harmony and peace; protects from harm and obstacles and attracts opportunities for success and growth. To promote the practice of Dorje Shugden, Kechara has came up a easy way for more people to understand the Powerful Practice.

All those materials were distributed to visitors free of charge at all Kechara outlets. Looking at those pictures of visitors says all of how Kechara had spreads the practice of Dorje Shugden like wild fire.

    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.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing .

    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.
    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
