Chotrul Duchen 2018

GNCD2018Today is Chotrul Duchen*, the Fifteenth day of the first lunar Month in the Tibetan calendar. On this holy day, one will attain unimaginable merits when you perform lamp offering, animal release, mantra recitation, or meditation practices. May all sentient beings arise wish-fulfilling jewel like Bodhicitta, may your Bodhicitta be ever increasing, like the bright and complete full moon.

(*Chotrul Duchen, meaning “Great Day of Miraculous Manifestations”, is one of the four great holy days observed by Tibetan Buddhists, always occurring on the Fifteenth day of the first lunar Month in the Tibetan calendar. During this time, it is believed that the effects of both positive and negative actions are multiplied ten million times.)

Losar la Tashi Deleg!

Losar la Tashi Deleg!

In this Year of the Earth Dog, wishing all Lineage Masters, Great Teachers, brothers sisters, all my students and everyone of you out there, a Happy Lunar New Year and Losar Tashi Delek 2018. May the Lineage Masters and Great Teachers benefit all sentient beings with their teachings continuously till all sentient beings attained liberation. May all enjoy good health and abundance of happiness always.

Below is a teaching for the new year that I like to share with you….

GNLosar2018

Master Tsongkhapa once said: “If the intention is good, one’s level and path are good. If the intention is bad, one’s level and path are bad. Since everything depends on intentions, always make sure they are positive.”

Kindness is the source of all happiness and merits. The good or evil thoughts within our minds determines what kind of karma we will create. Good karma brings about happiness, while evil karma engenders suffering. Regardless of how many good deeds we seem to have performed on a superficial level, if we don’t have good motivations in our hearts, then it’s just a semblance of the real thing, and will not generate much merit. It is therefore a kind heart that we should all aspire to possess.

A good personality means having a mind of luminosity, honesty and integrity, and a tolerant attitude, free from arrogance, a mind that doesn’t get worked up over little things.

A virtuous person is humble and self-motivated, who studies intensively, and doesn’t pretend to understand when they don’t and then go around preaching to others.

A virtuous person earnestly treats others with a compassionate heart, never cheating or harming them. Being strict with themselves, they are always introspective. They possess a purified and tolerant heart and care for others’ benefits and feelings at all times.

As Khenchen Jigme Phuntsok Rinpoche says: “the basis and support for a good nature is a kind heart without guile and deceit”. So, developing a good nature is a path leading to happiness.

You will find warmth everywhere as you looking at the world with your heart full of love and compassion.

You will find happiness everywhere as you looking at the world with your heart full of joy.

In the coming new year, I wish you all a year with an increase in merit and wisdom, benefit for your own and others, success in your endeavors, and joyous blessings.

Tashi Delek!

Happy New Year!

May your heart be full of love, and free from hatred and afflictions everyday. With a mind of love, you will enjoy complete virtue, good appearance and wisdom. Happy New Year!

Saga Dawa Düchen 2017

 

sagadawa2017

Today, Saga Dawa Düchen, is the 15th day (full moon) of the fourth Tibetan lunar month. It is one of the three most auspicious festivals of the year. It is the day when we commemorate the birth, enlightenment and parinirvana of the Buddha Shakyamuni. On this sacred day, the merits of any positive deeds and practices that we performed will be multiplied immeasurably, therefore I wish everyone not to miss out such a rare opportunity. Tashi delek!

 

 

Happy Mother’s Day 2017

Happy Mother’s Day to all mothers out there!

 

ཐོག་མེད་དུས་ནས་བདག་ལ་བརྩེ་བ་ཅན།
From time beyond time, our mothers have cared for us;
མ་རྣམས་སྡུག་ན་རང་བདེས་ཅི་ཞིག་བྱ།
If they suffer, what good is our own happiness?
དེ་ཕྱིར་མཐའ་ཡས་སེམས་ཅན་བསྒྲལ་བྱའི་ཕྱིར།
Thus, to liberate living beings beyond number,
བྱང་ཆུབ་སེམས་བསྐྱེད་རྒྱལ་སྲས་ལག་ལེན་ཡིན།
To engender bodhichitta is the practice of a bodhisattva.

 

We pray to the Buddha and Bodhisattvas in ten directions, and wish that all sentient beings who have once been our mother, will liberated from the suffering seas of samsara.

Today is Mother’s Day, we should remember how our parents have been benefiting us. Whether as Bodhisattvas or ordinary people, the world we are in, the life we are having, are all blessings from our parents.

Our parents from the mundane world and spiritual teachers who guide us on the path of liberation are the ones that have benefited us most. We receive immeasurable love from both our spiritual teachers and parents.

In this special day, we should make aspirations that we will use the rest of our lives, or even with numerous lives to come, to repay this kindness. We should make this our ultimate goal in life.

Happy Losar 2144 – Tibetan New Year

Losar2017Losar Tashi Delek!

༄༅།།ལོ་གསར་ལ་བཀྲ་ཤིས་བདེ་ལེགས་ཞུ།

Happy Losar 2144!

Today is Losar, the first day of the Tibetan New Year and also the first day of the “Miracle Days/Days of Miracles”. The “Miracle Days” are particularly auspicious Dharma days in Buddhism which commemorate the time when the Sakyamuni Buddha uncharacteristically displayed his power to subdue teachers of non-believers in order to present all the great teachings in Buddhism. As mentioned in many Buddhist sutras, this is a very powerful time to practice and increase one’s commitment to both practice and study as the power of that magical event can be harnessed to assist in our personal evolution towards enlightenment. The power of any actions done during this period of time, especially in the first two weeks, for better or worse (positive or negative), are multiplied by 100,000 times . So, with good beginnings and good endings, please practice with a pure mind and correspond with your Buddha nature!
