Myanmar’s Suu Kyi to make first foreign trip since 1988

After years of house arrest, Myanmar opposition leader Aung San Suu Kyi plans to make a first trip abroad to Oslo in June to accept in person the 1991 Nobel Peace Prize she won for her peaceful struggle.

After years of house arrest, Myanmar opposition leader Aung San Suu Kyi plans to make a first trip abroad to Oslo in June to accept in person the 1991 Nobel Peace Prize she won for her peaceful struggle.

“She will give her Nobel lecture at Oslo City Hall,” where the Nobel Peace Prize ceremony is held each year, the Nobel Institute’s events manager Sigrid Langebrekke told AFP on Wednesday after Norway’s foreign ministry announced the visit for which an exact date has yet to be set.

Myanmar officials said Wednesday the democracy activist, who has spent much of the past 22 years locked up by the junta under house arrest, had applied for a passport to travel but that it had not yet been granted.

Suu Kyi was awarded the 1991 Nobel Peace Prize “for her non-violent struggle for democracy and human rights”, according to the citation, but she was never able to travel to Oslo to accept the award in person.

She has long said she would try to make her first trip abroad to Norway to express her appreciation for its support.

Her now-deceased husband, Michael Aris, and her two sons accepted the Nobel medal, diploma and prize money on her behalf at the official ceremony held at Oslo City Hall in 1991.

But she was never able to give her official Nobel lecture. Her son Alexander made an acceptance speech on her behalf.

Langebrekke said the Nobel Institute was also hoping to arrange a traditional banquet for her, “but we don’t have all the details of her visit yet.”

Foreign ministry spokesman Svein Michelsen told AFP that Suu Kyi had confirmed her visit to Oslo to Foreign Minister Jonas Gahr Stoere on Sunday.

“The foreign minister and Aung San Suu Kyi spoke on the phone Sunday and discussed her visit to Oslo in June,” he said.

“It will be” the opposition leader’s first trip outside Myanmar since 1988, he said.

Myanmar’s military seized power in 1962, ushering in almost half a century of repressive junta rule and isolation from the West.

Also known as Burma, the country has surprised observers with a series of reforms in the past year, and historic by-elections on April 1 saw Suu Kyi win her seat in parliament, which she is expected to take up on April 23.

Norway announced on Sunday that it had lifted economic sanctions against Myanmar following the recent reforms.

“It is time to lift the sanctions,” Gahr Stoere announced in a statement.

“Recent developments in Myanmar demonstrate that the authorities are serious about reforms and that should be welcomed. What Myanmar needs now is contact with the rest of the world, economic development and international aid,” he said.

A weapons embargo remains in place, he added.

Gahr Stoere had reiterated his invitation to Suu Kyi to visit the Scandinavian country when he called her on Sunday to inform her of Norway’s decision on the sanctions.

“She confirmed that Norway was the first country she wanted to visit,” Stoere told news agency NTB on Sunday.

During the rare periods Suu Kyi has not been held under house arrest, she has not dared travel abroad for fear of not being allowed to re-enter Myanmar.

She is receiving blessings from a high monk. She is so humble and spiritual.

    What a real dharma practitioner. Whatever she had gone through she accepted it with patient and love for her people. There’s not hatred or anger that she showed. Her believe in Buddhism had lead her to use peaceful approach for her people. May the blessings of Buddhas always with her.

    Suu Kyi, through her struggle, determination, tremendous resilience, courage and strength to fight for her people, her country has garnered her so much respect, arising from her integrity. She has put everything we learn in Dharma into action, from abandoning her own pursuits, and operating out of selflessness instead of selfishness. This is evident in the juncture of her life when her ailing husband was sick and dying, and, for her people, for Burma, and for the struggle over the many years, she could not fly over to be by his side. Imagine the pain and hurt she had to undergo, imagine the (if any) resentment from her sons she’d have to face, to not be able to understand their mother’s plight and tremendous love, not only towards her family but for all of Burma..Imagine having to go through that, all alone. Kind of reminds me of Rinpoche.. being alone, but giving everything for everyone.

    There’s an article I read.. in which had a quote from Suu Kyi:

    “I don’t justify it. I don’t justify it. I think that everybody must accept their responsibility for what they do,” said Aung San Suu Kyi. “I accept responsibility for what I did and what I am and so must my sons. They must also accept responsibility for what they are not just put it on the fact that their mother was not there or their father died early, this we could always have all kinds of reasons for being what we are. In the end I think we, each of us, have to accept responsibility for what we are.”
    (extracted from: http://www.voanews.com/content/aung-san-suu-kyi-returns-to-britain/1212737.html)

    It’s powerful – that we are who we are because of the choices we make. We are who we are independant of the conditions and surroudings we are in. Everybody must accept their responsibility for what they do – reminds me of the effect of Karma, that we have to go through all consequences of all actions that we do. There is no justification because no one is controlling your own mind but you.

    I know her from the magazine , Myanmar’s 昂山素枝!

    And last month i watch the Movie The Lady! She really strong. 她对人民爱是说得到,做得到!

    昂山素枝的丈夫是西藏文化的学者教授, 昂山素枝也是佛教徒!佛法知识让人可以有坚定的思考,可以有清晰的远见。

    昂山素枝为了怎个国家,放弃见她心爱的丈夫最后一面。 虽然受许多群众指则, 这是其他人的无知。

    就像尊贵的佛祖, 他放弃了王子的身份,享乐与富贵,到外面的世界,从感受人民所受的苦。 直道,领悟, 得到成佛。

    难道, 佛祖没有被任何人指责过吗?

    仁波切,得故事也是一样! 为了学佛, 受尽一切的忍辱。 难道留在美国当一位国际巨星,不快乐吗?为什么要选择, 这么难行的道路?

    就是因为,仁波切慈悲, 爱护我们,教育我们,而且仁波切是活佛转世! 可以说是一个使命, 但是我们这群难搞, 自大, 无名,自私的学生就像要拿他的命!

    我们到底发生了什么事情? 快点改进吧!就会不会常有!

    In light of recent unrest between Muslims and Buddhists in some parts of Myanmar, following the election of and forming of a parliament, I am visiting this post to highlight the wisdom behind Aung Sung Suu Kyi’s fine example of holding out against use of violence in protest.

    I have long admired Suu Kyi for her patient endurance of so much suffering, all for the love of her country and its people. Some unthinking people have labelled her love of peace and harmony as signs of a weak and unfruitful form of resistance against a cruel regime. But she has proven the time-tested Buddha’s way, the way of peace, as the infallible way to go forward for her country. Now again, she has been proven right.

    We should have a voice of conscience for every generation and she is doing it just for the benefit of the people. How many of us will give up our spouses and not be able to see them pass away?
    She has not seen her children or the passing of her husband, and for many years there was not even a glimmer of hope but still she persevered and carried on the fight.

  11. su an on Jun 16, 2012 at 10:59 pm

    Such a soft spoken lady with iron hard will, honed by pure compassion and unconditional, universal love. Aung San Suu Kyi finally got to deliver her Nobel lecture just today 16 June 2012 at Oslo, Norway. A video of the speech will be out soon. Meanwhile here is the transcription of her speech (source – http://www.nobelprize.org/nobel_prizes/peace/laureates/1991/kyi-lecture_en.html), filled with hope, peace and peppered with Buddhism. If we are still wondering what is worth fighting for, what is worth sacrificing freedom for… read about Aung San Suu Kyi.

    ~~

    Your Majesties, Your Royal Highness, Excellencies, Distinguished members of the Norwegian Nobel Committee, Dear Friends,

    Long years ago, sometimes it seems many lives ago, I was at Oxford listening to the radio programme Desert Island Discs with my young son Alexander. It was a well-known programme (for all I know it still continues) on which famous people from all walks of life were invited to talk about the eight discs, the one book beside the bible and the complete works of Shakespeare, and the one luxury item they would wish to have with them were they to be marooned on a desert island. At the end of the programme, which we had both enjoyed, Alexander asked me if I thought I might ever be invited to speak on Desert Island Discs. “Why not?” I responded lightly. Since he knew that in general only celebrities took part in the programme he proceeded to ask, with genuine interest, for what reason I thought I might be invited. I considered this for a moment and then answered: “Perhaps because I’d have won the Nobel Prize for literature,” and we both laughed. The prospect seemed pleasant but hardly probable.

    (I cannot now remember why I gave that answer, perhaps because I had recently read a book by a Nobel Laureate or perhaps because the Desert Island celebrity of that day had been a famous writer.)

    In 1989, when my late husband Michael Aris came to see me during my first term of house arrest, he told me that a friend, John Finnis, had nominated me for the Nobel Peace Prize. This time also I laughed. For an instant Michael looked amazed, then he realized why I was amused. The Nobel Peace Prize? A pleasant prospect, but quite improbable! So how did I feel when I was actually awarded the Nobel Prize for Peace? The question has been put to me many times and this is surely the most appropriate occasion on which to examine what the Nobel Prize means to me and what peace means to me.

    As I have said repeatedly in many an interview, I heard the news that I had been awarded the Nobel Peace Prize on the radio one evening. It did not altogether come as a surprise because I had been mentioned as one of the frontrunners for the prize in a number of broadcasts during the previous week. While drafting this lecture, I have tried very hard to remember what my immediate reaction to the announcement of the award had been. I think, I can no longer be sure, it was something like: “Oh, so they’ve decided to give it to me.” It did not seem quite real because in a sense I did not feel myself to be quite real at that time.

    Often during my days of house arrest it felt as though I were no longer a part of the real world. There was the house which was my world, there was the world of others who also were not free but who were together in prison as a community, and there was the world of the free; each was a different planet pursuing its own separate course in an indifferent universe. What the Nobel Peace Prize did was to draw me once again into the world of other human beings outside the isolated area in which I lived, to restore a sense of reality to me. This did not happen instantly, of course, but as the days and months went by and news of reactions to the award came over the airwaves, I began to understand the significance of the Nobel Prize. It had made me real once again; it had drawn me back into the wider human community. And what was more important, the Nobel Prize had drawn the attention of the world to the struggle for democracy and human rights in Burma. We were not going to be forgotten.

    To be forgotten. The French say that to part is to die a little. To be forgotten too is to die a little. It is to lose some of the links that anchor us to the rest of humanity. When I met Burmese migrant workers and refugees during my recent visit to Thailand, many cried out: “Don’t forget us!” They meant: “don’t forget our plight, don’t forget to do what you can to help us, don’t forget we also belong to your world.” When the Nobel Committee awarded the Peace Prize to me they were recognizing that the oppressed and the isolated in Burma were also a part of the world, they were recognizing the oneness of humanity. So for me receiving the Nobel Peace Prize means personally extending my concerns for democracy and human rights beyond national borders. The Nobel Peace Prize opened up a door in my heart.

    The Burmese concept of peace can be explained as the happiness arising from the cessation of factors that militate against the harmonious and the wholesome. The word nyein-chan translates literally as the beneficial coolness that comes when a fire is extinguished. Fires of suffering and strife are raging around the world. In my own country, hostilities have not ceased in the far north; to the west, communal violence resulting in arson and murder were taking place just several days before I started out on the journey that has brought me here today. News of atrocities in other reaches of the earth abound. Reports of hunger, disease, displacement, joblessness, poverty, injustice, discrimination, prejudice, bigotry; these are our daily fare. Everywhere there are negative forces eating away at the foundations of peace. Everywhere can be found thoughtless dissipation of material and human resources that are necessary for the conservation of harmony and happiness in our world.

    The First World War represented a terrifying waste of youth and potential, a cruel squandering of the positive forces of our planet. The poetry of that era has a special significance for me because I first read it at a time when I was the same age as many of those young men who had to face the prospect of withering before they had barely blossomed. A young American fighting with the French Foreign Legion wrote before he was killed in action in 1916 that he would meet his death: “at some disputed barricade;” “on some scarred slope of battered hill;” “at midnight in some flaming town.” Youth and love and life perishing forever in senseless attempts to capture nameless, unremembered places. And for what? Nearly a century on, we have yet to find a satisfactory answer.

    Are we not still guilty, if to a less violent degree, of recklessness, of improvidence with regard to our future and our humanity? War is not the only arena where peace is done to death. Wherever suffering is ignored, there will be the seeds of conflict, for suffering degrades and embitters and enrages.

    A positive aspect of living in isolation was that I had ample time in which to ruminate over the meaning of words and precepts that I had known and accepted all my life. As a Buddhist, I had heard about dukha, generally translated as suffering, since I was a small child. Almost on a daily basis elderly, and sometimes not so elderly, people around me would murmur “dukha, dukha” when they suffered from aches and pains or when they met with some small, annoying mishaps. However, it was only during my years of house arrest that I got around to investigating the nature of the six great dukha. These are: to be conceived, to age, to sicken, to die, to be parted from those one loves, to be forced to live in propinquity with those one does not love. I examined each of the six great sufferings, not in a religious context but in the context of our ordinary, everyday lives. If suffering were an unavoidable part of our existence, we should try to alleviate it as far as possible in practical, earthly ways. I mulled over the effectiveness of ante- and post-natal programmes and mother and childcare; of adequate facilities for the aging population; of comprehensive health services; of compassionate nursing and hospices. I was particularly intrigued by the last two kinds of suffering: to be parted from those one loves and to be forced to live in propinquity with those one does not love. What experiences might our Lord Buddha have undergone in his own life that he had included these two states among the great sufferings? I thought of prisoners and refugees, of migrant workers and victims of human trafficking, of that great mass of the uprooted of the earth who have been torn away from their homes, parted from families and friends, forced to live out their lives among strangers who are not always welcoming.

    We are fortunate to be living in an age when social welfare and humanitarian assistance are recognized not only as desirable but necessary. I am fortunate to be living in an age when the fate of prisoners of conscience anywhere has become the concern of peoples everywhere, an age when democracy and human rights are widely, even if not universally, accepted as the birthright of all. How often during my years under house arrest have I drawn strength from my favourite passages in the preamble to the Universal Declaration of Human Rights:

    ……. disregard and contempt for human rights have resulted in barbarous acts which have outraged the conscience of mankind, and the advent of a world in which human beings shall enjoy freedom of speech and belief and freedom from fear and want has been proclaimed as the highest aspirations of the common people,

    …… it is essential, if man is not to be compelled to have recourse, as a last resort, to rebellion against tyranny and oppression, that human rights should be protected by the rule of law . . .

    If I am asked why I am fighting for human rights in Burma the above passages will provide the answer. If I am asked why I am fighting for democracy in Burma, it is because I believe that democratic institutions and practices are necessary for the guarantee of human rights.

    Over the past year there have been signs that the endeavours of those who believe in democracy and human rights are beginning to bear fruit in Burma. There have been changes in a positive direction; steps towards democratization have been taken. If I advocate cautious optimism it is not because I do not have faith in the future but because I do not want to encourage blind faith. Without faith in the future, without the conviction that democratic values and fundamental human rights are not only necessary but possible for our society, our movement could not have been sustained throughout the destroying years. Some of our warriors fell at their post, some deserted us, but a dedicated core remained strong and committed. At times when I think of the years that have passed, I am amazed that so many remained staunch under the most trying circumstances. Their faith in our cause is not blind; it is based on a clear-eyed assessment of their own powers of endurance and a profound respect for the aspirations of our people.

    It is because of recent changes in my country that I am with you today; and these changes have come about because of you and other lovers of freedom and justice who contributed towards a global awareness of our situation. Before continuing to speak of my country, may I speak out for our prisoners of conscience. There still remain such prisoners in Burma. It is to be feared that because the best known detainees have been released, the remainder, the unknown ones, will be forgotten. I am standing here because I was once a prisoner of conscience. As you look at me and listen to me, please remember the often repeated truth that one prisoner of conscience is one too many. Those who have not yet been freed, those who have not yet been given access to the benefits of justice in my country number much more than one. Please remember them and do whatever is possible to effect their earliest, unconditional release.

    Burma is a country of many ethnic nationalities and faith in its future can be founded only on a true spirit of union. Since we achieved independence in 1948, there never has been a time when we could claim the whole country was at peace. We have not been able to develop the trust and understanding necessary to remove causes of conflict. Hopes were raised by ceasefires that were maintained from the early 1990s until 2010 when these broke down over the course of a few months. One unconsidered move can be enough to remove long-standing ceasefires. In recent months, negotiations between the government and ethnic nationality forces have been making progress. We hope that ceasefire agreements will lead to political settlements founded on the aspirations of the peoples, and the spirit of union.

    My party, the National League for Democracy, and I stand ready and willing to play any role in the process of national reconciliation. The reform measures that were put into motion by President U Thein Sein’s government can be sustained only with the intelligent cooperation of all internal forces: the military, our ethnic nationalities, political parties, the media, civil society organizations, the business community and, most important of all, the general public. We can say that reform is effective only if the lives of the people are improved and in this regard, the international community has a vital role to play. Development and humanitarian aid, bi-lateral agreements and investments should be coordinated and calibrated to ensure that these will promote social, political and economic growth that is balanced and sustainable. The potential of our country is enormous. This should be nurtured and developed to create not just a more prosperous but also a more harmonious, democratic society where our people can live in peace, security and freedom.

    The peace of our world is indivisible. As long as negative forces are getting the better of positive forces anywhere, we are all at risk. It may be questioned whether all negative forces could ever be removed. The simple answer is: “No!” It is in human nature to contain both the positive and the negative. However, it is also within human capability to work to reinforce the positive and to minimize or neutralize the negative. Absolute peace in our world is an unattainable goal. But it is one towards which we must continue to journey, our eyes fixed on it as a traveller in a desert fixes his eyes on the one guiding star that will lead him to salvation. Even if we do not achieve perfect peace on earth, because perfect peace is not of this earth, common endeavours to gain peace will unite individuals and nations in trust and friendship and help to make our human community safer and kinder.

    I used the word ‘kinder’ after careful deliberation; I might say the careful deliberation of many years. Of the sweets of adversity, and let me say that these are not numerous, I have found the sweetest, the most precious of all, is the lesson I learnt on the value of kindness. Every kindness I received, small or big, convinced me that there could never be enough of it in our world. To be kind is to respond with sensitivity and human warmth to the hopes and needs of others. Even the briefest touch of kindness can lighten a heavy heart. Kindness can change the lives of people. Norway has shown exemplary kindness in providing a home for the displaced of the earth, offering sanctuary to those who have been cut loose from the moorings of security and freedom in their native lands.

    There are refugees in all parts of the world. When I was at the Maela refugee camp in Thailand recently, I met dedicated people who were striving daily to make the lives of the inmates as free from hardship as possible. They spoke of their concern over ‘donor fatigue,’ which could also translate as ‘compassion fatigue.’ ‘Donor fatigue’ expresses itself precisely in the reduction of funding. ‘Compassion fatigue’ expresses itself less obviously in the reduction of concern. One is the consequence of the other. Can we afford to indulge in compassion fatigue? Is the cost of meeting the needs of refugees greater than the cost that would be consequent on turning an indifferent, if not a blind, eye on their suffering? I appeal to donors the world over to fulfill the needs of these people who are in search, often it must seem to them a vain search, of refuge.

    At Maela, I had valuable discussions with Thai officials responsible for the administration of Tak province where this and several other camps are situated. They acquainted me with some of the more serious problems related to refugee camps: violation of forestry laws, illegal drug use, home brewed spirits, the problems of controlling malaria, tuberculosis, dengue fever and cholera. The concerns of the administration are as legitimate as the concerns of the refugees. Host countries also deserve consideration and practical help in coping with the difficulties related to their responsibilities.

    Ultimately our aim should be to create a world free from the displaced, the homeless and the hopeless, a world of which each and every corner is a true sanctuary where the inhabitants will have the freedom and the capacity to live in peace. Every thought, every word, and every action that adds to the positive and the wholesome is a contribution to peace. Each and every one of us is capable of making such a contribution. Let us join hands to try to create a peaceful world where we can sleep in security and wake in happiness.

    The Nobel Committee concluded its statement of 14 October 1991 with the words: “In awarding the Nobel Peace Prize … to Aung San Suu Kyi, the Norwegian Nobel Committee wishes to honour this woman for her unflagging efforts and to show its support for the many people throughout the world who are striving to attain democracy, human rights and ethnic conciliation by peaceful means.” When I joined the democracy movement in Burma it never occurred to me that I might ever be the recipient of any prize or honour. The prize we were working for was a free, secure and just society where our people might be able to realize their full potential. The honour lay in our endeavour. History had given us the opportunity to give of our best for a cause in which we believed. When the Nobel Committee chose to honour me, the road I had chosen of my own free will became a less lonely path to follow. For this I thank the Committee, the people of Norway and peoples all over the world whose support has strengthened my faith in the common quest for peace. Thank you.

    I will never get tired of reading on Aung Sung Suu Kyi who has an incredible ability to love – love for her late father, her late husband, her sons, her country & her people. Her face is always calm, no sign of bitterness from the umaginable number of years under house arrest. I pray that she will be safe always and that her dreams of seeing a better Myanmar will come true.

  13. HelenaC on Jun 14, 2012 at 6:50 pm

    After watching The Lady,I really salute Aung San Suu Kyi. She is a true hero of Myanmar. She sacrifice her family, her life in a house because of Myanmar’s future. She goes all the way and stand what she believes. I cried when i watch the movie, I can feel how sad she is can’t even visit her husband for the last time before he died. She is totally amazing woman.
    My salute to her….

  14. Uncle Eddie on Jun 14, 2012 at 1:36 pm

    The landslide victory of Aung San Su Kyi’s was excitedly watched by the whole World, with thousands pouring out into the streets adorned with national league T-shirts and stickers. The fear that was known to have behold the Myanmar people, regarding politics seemingly ended. Her primarily wish after winning the election is ” I want to win over the military for peace and progress”. May she have her greatest blessings and success to make this wish come true for all the benefits of the peoples in the country. She is indeed an ernormous inspiration to all!

  15. Lucas Tan on Jun 5, 2012 at 3:58 pm

    Just a few weeks ago the movie<> was released and I had watched it.After watching the movie and reading the post.I felt that she is a women who is determined to do something and will not give up even though she was push to the edge of the cliff and her husband was very ill.What I learned is that we should never give up that easily when you come across something hard,never give up,”when you fall down,get up,when you fail never give up”

      ‘The Lady’

  16. philyong on May 3, 2012 at 5:28 pm

    I watched ‘THE LADY’ last night. It is a movie about the struggle Aung San Suu Kyi had to go through while she was fighting for democracy in her country. The movie demonstrated very well the struggle this tough lady had to go through. Can you imagine not being able to see her dying husband for the last time? The pain she had to experience was definitely unbearable.

    She did it all for the sake of the people in her country..

  17. Bryan on May 2, 2012 at 10:48 pm

    Just watch a documentary movie about this wonderful lady of Myanmar, and it’s wonderful. Personally i don’t know much about her background and how much she have done for people of Myanmar.

    The life story of Aung San Suu Kyi, the democracy mother of Myanmar is totally inspiring. In the movie, show how much suffering that she have to go thru since she was a little girl till now. Aung San Suu Kyi is “famous” for under house arrest, the government gave chance for Aung San Suu Kyi to fled but she remains in continuous suffering for her people , even though when her beloved husband is dying, he cried and deeply sad about that, but still she let go of her attachment for the benefit of Myanmar people.

    Aung San Suu Kyi is a Buddhist, and she really practice Buddhism in real life, she promote non-violence political view, love within all people. I remember that a scene in the movie, a soldier is pointing a gun on her fore head to stop her for giving a public speaking, she walked to the soldier and close her eyes, and the soldier can do anything and left. The point is she is ready to scarified her own life for some people that she doesn’t even know. She’s not fighting for the political position for her own benefit, but she take up the role to bring a new future of Myanmar out of compassion.

    She is a lady, a widow, a mother of 2, a person with compassion and love, and she share all she have with others. This is really inspiring.

    I cannot imaging how she managed to keep her determination for such a long time despite all the difficulties, challenges and the physical and mental suffering that she had gone through. What kind of iron will is that! She will always be the example for the world of how every people should do for peace.

  19. Su Ming on Apr 27, 2012 at 6:52 pm

    I have been following Aung San Suu Kyi since many years ago. Her determination and what she has “sacrifice” is so amazing for her country. She looks so frail and yet so strong internally.

    The picture of her with the Buddhist monk shows how much respect she has for such holy beings. She is one of my inspiration.

    我常想,一个被困在牢狱里的人或者像昂山素枝这样长达22年被软禁起来,跟外面的世界隔离的人,他/她的内心会面对怎样一种恐惧。我一直好奇,在被关起来,斗争面对暴力、无理和残酷打压时,他/她在如何度过被否定自由权利的同时,又如何获得力量去坚持自己的理想,相信自己一直追求的理想是正确的、正当的、利他的,是值得他/她继续争取下去,热诚是不会就此被浇灭的……。

    后来我发现好些一直坚持下去的人,包括昂山素枝,有的应该是深植内心一股很强的力量,打败怀疑自己和否定自己,持续走下去的力量。那股力量经常是宗教的力量,不管是伊斯兰教、佛教、基督教还是其他宗教;它也可能是信仰能把世界变得更好的一个理想。否则,以个人脆弱的力量是难于抵抗整个腐败的机制、政权或其他更大力量的团体的。

    或许,那段被隔离的日子,真正要面对和打败的是自己内心的敌人,而不是强权者的刀枪或恶法。

    She is brave, strong, persevere and selfless who can sacrifice her family life and freedom for so many years for a more democratic rule in her country for the sake of her countrymen in a peaceful way through her strong faith in Buddhism.Very inspiring!

  22. Uncle Eddie on Apr 19, 2012 at 3:52 pm

    She is truly living her dear life for others’ sake in her non-violent struggles for democracy and human rights, where she had spent 22 years of her life under house-arrest. Nevertheless, Aung San Suu Kyi was awarded a Nobel Peace Prize in 1991 for her democratic struggles, yet she was never able to travel to Oslo to accept the said award in Person till today. Though plans have been made for her first trip abroad to oslo in June for the aforesaid purpose, the passport for travelling has yet to be issued. In the recent by-election in Myanmar, Suu Kyi won her seat in parliamant as the opposition leader, which is expected to take up on April, 2012, but severed uncertainty still hangs heavily over her admission and that of her other party members too!

  23. Margaretlee on Apr 19, 2012 at 12:23 pm

    Aung San Suu Kyi demonstrated strong feminie power like Vajrayogini, being a woman in a military dominated country like Burma did not give her an easy ride over anything at all.

    She has always been my icon, I see a lots of patience, tolerance and compassion in whatever she has endured for the people of Burma, because she believes in Buddism, and she PRACTICES it! No violence through out the years and she definitely well deserved the Nobel Peace Price!

    I can’t imagine myself under house arrest for even 1 week and she has spent a major part of her life of 22 years under house arrest! She really has demonstrated strong conviction deep inside her even though she looks soft, fragile and gentle outside! A reall iron lady!

  24. freon on Apr 19, 2012 at 11:45 am

    Aung San Suu Kyi; i always admire her a lots. I admire her strength, her determination, her ‘softness” , her mind, her brilliant…She is gentle in the outlooks but, ‘wrathful” in protecting her people. She showed the example in performing compassion and wisdom.

  25. tsemtulku on Apr 19, 2012 at 12:22 am

    What a inspiring person. She is just the epitome of a lay Buddhist person exuding strength, valour, selflessness, determination & forgiveness. Using her life to for others.. She says clearly that Buddhism gives her the strength I had read before.

  26. WT on Apr 19, 2012 at 12:03 am

    She may seems like a normal lady from the look but I salute her determination, her courage and her strength to overcome all obstacles for the sake of her people. A real Bodhisattva in action.

    Thank you for the sharing, I never heard about it before, it’s the belief that there’s a divine, mystical relationship between numbers and the projection of life. There is one thing important to know that every number has a unique vibration by itself.

    I had a good read to know the auspicious sign of number seven belongs to Buddha Tara. It ‘s also the culture believe that all numbers has it own qualities. What I understand from this article is there is a hidden supreme power and spirituality behind every numbers.

    Traditionally, the Stupa is a representation of the enlightened mind of the Buddha and, as such, is a method for harmonizing, purifying, and balancing the elements of the environment. Stupas are structures that have been built for thousands of years, representing the highest potential of the mind, and bringing peace, harmony, health, and happiness to the surroundings areas. By participating in the building of a stupa, it is an extremely great merits ,to purifying our negative Karma and obstacles and it will enriches one’s own body and mind. Rejoice to Ms Veronika Tupayachi, been involved in the construction of a Stupa in Cusco, Peru. The very first stupa been built in Peru with the effort of Buddhist practitioners of various traditions and supporters. This project finally constructed after a few years and glad to hear from Ms Veronika who has not forgotten Rinpoche’s generosity and advices . May more people in Peru get to receive the blessing .
    Thank you for this sharing.

    Buddhism encompasses a variety of traditions, beliefs and spiritual practices. Buddhism is a path of practice and spiritual development leading to insight into the true nature of reality. As a Buddhists I do believe that nothing is permanent and that change is always possible.
    Anger and intolerance are the enemies of correct understanding. When anger rises, think of the consequences. For every minute we remain angry, we will give up sixty seconds of peace of mind. Well in Buddhist teachings, it tell us that patience is the antidote to anger and aggression. Purifying ourselves of anger is essential to Buddhist practice. We have to embrace our anger with patience and compassion for all beings as anger is one of the three poisons.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this teachings.

    There is a saying that we got to watch our thoughts, they will become our words. From our words, they become our actions. From what we do that’s our actions will become our habits. With our habits, they soon become our character.
    A change in our bad habits , leads a change in our life. Our success in work and life with be determined by the kinds of habits , we develop over times. All goes to practice what we want in life stepping out of our comfort zone to improve ourselves and transform our mind. Practicing and learning dharma makes permanent.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this teachings.

    Thank you for the sharing, sad to read about the poor little creature has to suffer so much just for human entertainment, fun and pleasure. I never thought of frog had a huge demand till I came across of this article.

    Every creation of God has a reason for living on earth with the same feelings. The feeling of pain, happiness, anger, depression etc. is the same for all. However, since animals and plants do not speak, we humans abuse them to such a great extent, that if they could respond back, we would have suffered much more and create the negative karma.

    Thank you for the good article. Buddhism is about mind transformation. When we transform our mind, not only we will become happier but we will also bring happiness to others.
    Ultimately, real worship of the deity is mind transformation and developing a mind of wisdom and compassion.It’s kind of understanding Rinpoche a bit more through this story of Goddess Saraswati.

    Thank you for the sharing I had a good read of the article and a clear picture of the blind corner of each decade. I believe people grow through the lessons that they experience in their life journey. Throughout life, we go through many challenges and painful experience some changing us for the better, others for the worse.

    I never heard about 9 is the changing point of our live, what i know in every aspect of our bad time, we struggle, every point we learn, think positively, pray and to be wise. Only painful experience gives a good lesson because God has a plan for everything that happens in our lives and we need to go through it due to our past karma.

    Interesting history behind the eighth Jebtsundamba . As a young boy, he was recognized as the new incarnation of the Bogd Gegen in Potala in the presence of the 13th Dalai Lama and the Panchen Lama. When northern Mongolia declared independence in 1911, the eighth Jebtsundamba was elevated to theocratic ruler, called Bogd Khan. As the 8th Jebtsundamba Khutuktu, he was the third most important person in the Tibetan Buddhist hierarchy after the Dalai Lama and Panchen Lama. He was the spiritual leader of Outer Mongolia’s Tibetan Buddhism also known as the “Bogdo Lama. In this beautiful thangka he is depicted with Dorje Shugden the powerful dharma protector who is an emanation of the Buddha of Wisdom, Manjushri. We are blessed merely by looking at this beautiful thangka.
    Thanks for sharing.

    Ganapati is known as Ganesha, and also known by numerous other names as well by different tradition. Ganapati is one of the best-known and most worshipped deities in the Hindu tradition. The primary function of Ganapati in Tantric Buddhism is that of a wealth deity and is widely revered as the remover of obstacles. Ganapati has been represented with the head of an elephant. There many myths and stories as how he got his elephant head and in many forms as well. Here depicted together with the Dharma protector Dorje Shugden forms a powerful pair to help overcome obstacles and creating suitable conditions for our spiritual practice to flourish. Beautiful thangka.

    Shakyamuni Buddha is the founder of the Buddhist religion. Born as the crown prince of the great Shakya Kingdom 2,500 years ago.He forgo everything living luxury in the palace to find the causes of suffering and the means to overcome it. After a long spiritual search he went into deep meditation, self-deprivation, and finally he become an enlightened one. Soon his teachings became the basis for the Buddhist faith. In this beautiful thangka as depicted with Dorje Shugden who is an emanation of the Buddha of Wisdom, Manjushri, in order to safeguard the Buddha’s teachings.

    The Yant tattoos have developed over the centuries under the influence of several different religious.They have their reasons to do it as it represents vows and commitments, blessings, kindness and love. It is a spiritual method to help someone become a better person.
    From this article we can see most people are seeking for mundane help which is quite common but what most important is how one would be able to transform their mind for better and ultimately achieve liberation from suffering.Thank you very much for this interesting article and video for exploring another type of unique spiritual tradition.

    Beautiful thangka of Mahasiddha Naropa and Niguma, the Lady of Illusion paints a thousand words. In this painting the great Tantric mahasiddha Naropa sits gazing up,together with Niguma a dakini and was one of the influential yoginis and Vajrayana teachers. Niguma is one of the two female founders of the Shangpa Kagyu school of Vajrayana Buddhism. A beautiful thangka depicted with the powerful dharma protector Dorje Shugden will be wonderful to have.

    Janguli is a Buddhist goddess who protects from snakes and poisons, worshiped in the ancient past. By nature Janguli is actually Avalokiteshvara, the Buddha of Compassion who will protects us against snakes but actually dissolving our anger. Our anger is the root cause for destruction of merits and causes us to stay in samsara longer. A beautiful thangka depicted with Dorje Shugden the Buddha of Wisdom, Manjushri will definitely wonderful to have in our home protecting us and helping us to clear obstacles in our spiritual path.

    The practice of Vajrayogini is especially popular in the Highest Yoga Tantra of the Kagyu, Sakya and Gelug schools. Her Tantra promises rebirth in her pure land known as Kechara Paradise. When Vajrayogini is portrayed in this appearance with the left hand raised and the two feet firmly planted she is commonly referred to as the Naro Khachodma. Red in colour with one face, three eyes and two hands the left holds aloft a white skullcup. As depicted with Dorje Shugden forms a beautiful and powerful thangka.

    We are so blessed hearing a sacred, holy recording of the two holy tutors of the Dalai Lama performing a Dorje Shugden kangsol (puja). Great masters HH Kyabje Ling Rinpoche and HH Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche chanting the powerful puja to Dorje Shugden. Both of them were the tutors of His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama. This is definitely has proven that HH Kyabje Ling Rinpoche had a close connection with Dorje Shugden. HH Kyabje Ling Rinpoche has even composed a combined prayer offering to propitiate the blessings of this enlightened Dharma Protector Dorje Shugden, which no one can denied. Both Kyabje Ling Rinpoche , Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche and many Highly attained lamas of Tibet did propitiate Dorje Shugden lamas of Tibet. That’s the truth which cannot be hidden. But HH Dalai Lama insists that Ling Rinpoche, his own tutor, never relied on Dorje Shugden at all. Interesting read, may more people know the truth and understand better of the Dorje Shugden controversy.
    Thank you Rinpoche and Pastor Khong Jean Ai for this wonderful 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

Back during the H1N1 outbreak in 2009, Rinpoche advised everyone to quickly accumulate 25,000 recitations of Loma Gyonma’s essence mantra ASAP, combined with daily recitation of both Loma Gyonma and Shize’s mantra. In view of the current situation with the global spread of the novel coronavirus, you are invited to a special prayer session in Kechara Forest Retreat where we will be collectively accumulating a minimum of 25,000 Loma Gyonma mantras, combined with circumambulations and 108 candle offerings each to Loma Gyonma and Dorje Shugden. DATE: Saturday, 15 February 2020 TIME: 3.00pm - 6.30pm VENUE: Wisdom Hall, Kechara Forest Retreat
