Geshe Tsultrim Gyeltsen’s special thangka | 属于格西簇亲格而辛的非凡唐卡

(译文请往下阅读) In Tibetan Buddhism, especially when you have entered the Tantric path, it is vital that you have your teacher’s blessings, that you are in good relations with your teacher (have clean samaya) and that whatever you do within the religious sphere, you have your teacher’s permission. At a very early stage in my life, it was instilled in me that Guru Devotion is more than just saying “This person is my Guru” or “That person is my Guru”, “I attended this teaching” or “I go to this Dharma center”. Guru Devotion was explained as devoting on...

A Gift from Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche | 格西格桑嘉措仁波切的礼物

  (译文请往下阅读) In the 70’s, when I came across Buddhism, there were books and there were items that were translated and some of them were quite good. But there was not a lot. And, if you want to study what the monastic system study, it was very difficult to find translations. And if you did find translations, they were very technical and dry and if I may say quite boring. Decades ago, I came across some books by His Eminence Geshe Kelsang Gyatso and I read through them. I found the books systematic, easy to understand, orderly, based on...

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.
