I. There was very good year 2012 at the HERITAGE OF MANKIND . On the photo above we collected all the data and countries where our Readers come from . May you get further UNIVERSAL EDUCATION also in 2013 when we continue to publish in the TREASURE OF PURE DHARMA once or twice monthly . WISDOM WITHOUT BORDERS ❁‿↗⁀◎⊙ღ๑۩۞۩๑ღ⊙◎‿↗⁀❁ ཨ ཨ ཨ
Dear All, since the creation of Open Buddhist Forum in year Anno Domini 2000 I taught about a forum in the ancient Greek style : forum is a open place for exchange of ideas , sharing of Knowledge. We never understood forum in contemporary misleading sense as gossiping , slander or just wasting time
In intellectual debates . This would not be in harmony with our Ati Yoga Dzogchen Lineage of the Natural Sound of Dharmata (Tib. Chönyid kyi rangdra) . Therefore we stay away from everything that is not in harmony with our Mission.
On my Facebook account I sometimes like to engage in Dharma Teaching Dialogues, to bring fresh and A-live transmission which actually lives in all of us. Some did already discover it , some are still ignorant of it. Answers that Dharma students presented in this Dialogues show very well the level of their spiritual understanding. Please read this Dialogues as a Dokusan – interviews with zen masters at Chan/Zen sesshins . Hope you will reflect on the questions and add your own drop of wisdom about : Buddhism without obscuration of race, nationality and social position ; Take impermanence to heart.

Dharma Teaching Dialogues
2.1. Buddhism without obscuration of race, nationality, social position
This Dialogue is very interesting : venerable Ugyen is a monk from Bhutan who finished his studies at Tantric institute at Mongar. I was impressed by his understanding of Buddhism without obscuration of race and nationality . Even many Buddhists masters who teach the Dharma in USA and Europe and throughout the world, still divide humanity into Westerners and Easterners . This is not correct esp. nowdays in the time of globalisation and internet communications. Aming my friends on Facebook there are many Buddhists from Asia (Bhutan, India and other SE Asian states ) and I never think about them as Easterners. I always try to teach them that such divisions are wrong . Please read other interesting reflections about this in my Dialogue with venerable Ugyen .
Dharma Teaching Dialogue with :Ugyen Sangngak Tenzin, Bhutan
I am a simple Buddhist monk who has got no experience either in worldly matter or in the Buddhist fields. Many of my new Facebook friends asked my name(they say,good name),so plz you all can call me with any of the following names la…… 1. Jamyang Tenzin 2. Ugyen Sang Ngag Tenzin 3. Phurba Wangchuk 4. Phurba 5. Leki Tshering Yuden
• Graduated from Ngagdra Dorji Choegar(Tantric Institute) mongar
Tara Rinpoche : We must not limit Buddha activity only to one nation or two : Tibetans, Bhutanese or only one race : Asians . Buddha never divided human beings as Easterners , Westernes, Asiana, European …This is called racism and nationalism . And it is not good for Buddhist Dharma to think like this
Ven. Ugyen : yes la,absolutely right…..many people don’t realize this
Tara Rinpoche : Nowdays many already understand globalised world . But even nowdays some Buddhist teachers speak about Westerners . For us who were born in Europe and USA this term “Westerners” is little bit offending. Can you understand ?
It means we are not Buddhist by birth , but we found Buddhist path through our own searching and we appreciate it very much .
Ven. Ugyen : yes……i understand it…..yea many point out as ‘westerners’ aside…..its not good….they are not Buddhists,coz Buddha didn’t seperate as easteners or westerners
all are same….
Tara Rinpoche : So Buddhist Dharma must be without nationalism and racism . Let me quote from Manjushri-nama-samgiti : HOMAGE TO MANJUGOSHA with great sounding, whose single great Sound in the three worlds is great, sounding through the sky expanse, the best among those who are sounding.”
Verse from Manjushri – nama –samgiti
Ven. Ugyen : oh so nice…thanks
having a partial mind is not good………
Tara Rinpoche : Our Dharma Teaching Dialogue is very interesting . I copied it in special word document .
Ven. Ugyen : oh dats great la
Tara Rinpoche : some day I will publish our Dharma Teaching Dialogues at our blogsite Heritage of Mankind at wordpress. Your name can be omitted, if you don+t wish to be mentioned
Ven. Ugyen : oh why la…hahahahha……if you feel i am capable in it…plz do it
Tara Rinpoche : you are capable and have higher understanding
Ven. Ugyen : oh hahahhaa…i don’t think so la….
Tara Rinpoche : many don+t understand what you already understand. This Dharma Teachi g Dialogue is different from debates at Buddhist monasteries. It is more like Zen Dokusan – interview during zen sesshin with Buddhist master
Ven. Ugyen : oh i feel it will help many people…..
plz do it la
Tara Rinpoche : Yes, will publish it, because it is fresh and alive . It can inspire people to be more simple and direct .
Ven. Ugyen : yea that we really want………
Tara Rinpoche : The aim of Buddhist practice is not to collect huge intellectual knowledge, but Wisdom and direct understanding . This comes only with simplicity , like Zen and Chan masters and some Dzogchen masters .
Ven. Ugyen : yes true……….intellectual or outer knowledge doesn’t really help us to attain enlightenment….
we need simple,wise and wisdom oriented life and practise……..isn’t la?
Tara Rinpoche : Yes, Dzogchen master Changchub Dorje was like this . And he realised Rainbow body . He was the Guru of Namkhai Norbu Rinpoche and contemporary of Ayu Khandro. My Guru Kyabje Thinley Norbu was laso like this when he taught students . Very direct and without compromises when it comes to Wisdom Teachings
Ven. Ugyen : oh yea that type of master we want at this time…..
Tara Rinpoche : such masters are rare , they don+t want public attention much …
Ven. Ugyen : yes its true la
Tara Rinpoche : Let us finish our Dharma Teaching Dialogues for now . Namo Amitabha Buddha .
.Ven. Ugyen : .may The Buddha’s blessings always be with you……

2.2. ✿ Take IMPERMANENCE to Heart.
Dharma Teaching Dialogue with students :
I wonder how our planet is still here after such a huge solar explosion on the sun on December 31, 2012 , 20 x bigger than our planet . Obviously Buddhas and Bodhisattvas love our planet . Now reflect : What is most important in your life : is it the job, is it family, or something else. Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche asked on the Meditation in Action ( Ankaran, Adriatic sea, 1994) : What would you do if you have only three days to live ? ” And he said: Don´t give me intellectual answers, give me simple and direct answer . ••●●♥♥❤✿

TaraTulku Drimed Drolkhar Rinpoche And the answers that students gave were very interesting : one would write a testament, one would read religious book, one would visit his mother , one would continue his meditation…. Rinpoche was glad to hear all answers, saying that east Europeans are good Buddhist students, not intellectual ones . I still remember this, because at time I was translating his seminar and later also published booklet with translation. MEDITATION IN ACTION by Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche was based on first 8 chater of Bodhisattvacaryavatara – Bodhisattva way of life . It was innovative, with many guided meditations , questions and answers .

Sylvester Sebastian Smith UK. Only three days? Well, I would spend as much time as possible with family, especially grandchildren, playing games with them. I would try not to dwell too much on the impending doom but to keep a happy lively mood so as not to worry the young ones. I would tell and show my love and appreciation for those closest to my heart, make the most of the time, spending it with them.
Tuesday at 2:29pm •
Ayu SriMulyani Kromodidjojo Indonesia . well, left 3 day or even 1 day, we still keep do daily activities, for sure everyone will died, no need wait today or tomorrow, no need be panic, just do daily activities like usually and normaly, be grateful, for not, we still alive till now …
Tuesday at 3:17pm •
TaraTulku Drimed Drolkhar Rinpoche to Ayu SriMulyani Kromodidjojo Nyima Tsering, daily activities can keep you in samsara for aeons. Not satisfied with your answer, reflect more ….
Tuesday at 3:19pm •
TaraTulku Drimed Drolkhar Rinpoche Yeshi Choden very good, with such motivation you will become true Bodhisattva.
Tuesday at 3:20pm •
Ayu SriMulyani Kromodidjojo well, i just a simple beings, dear, to follow the bodhisatvas way, there we must take samsara, if possible, let samsara of other just come in our self, to let the happiness left for them .. we life in reality of the human realms, so many samsara come through nowaday and past life, then we want to take out that but we are already the basic of samsara from our karma, so just let this samsara inner self, can putted more from other, let they happy, just like Avalokiteshvara Bodhisattvas self, reject to be Buddha before all sentient beings realy free from suffering … and i just little tiby insane, i could not planning the future before we done and finish the life that exactly infront of us, just now at this very times… Om Mani Padme Hum …

Tuesday at 3:34pm •
Sylvester Sebastian Smith So I’m assuming my answer was NOT intellectual enough?
Tuesday at 3:43pm •
TaraTulku Drimed Drolkhar Rinpoche Sylvester Sebastian, answer shuld be direct and simple , NOT INTELLECTUAL . This was Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche demand . It is like spontaneous and direct perception that supreme artists use when creating works of true Art. Like writing Haiku 4-line poetry . This can be only with inspiration and true insight. See how many people are dying every day , this is not theory . Meditation on impermanence should not make us depressed , but opposite : appreciate each moment of impermanent life . As I wrote in Visual Dharma for new your : LIFE IS SO IMPERMANENT, but Sound of Dharmata is inimpeded continuity. The aim of all Buddhist practice is to connect yourself with this unimpeded continuity of Dharmata (Tib. Chönyid), IN YOURSELF- before you arrive at the Bardo of Dharmata soon after death (Chönyid Bardo). Related reading : Tibetan Book of the death / Bardo Thödol – Liberation upon hearing in the bardo (revealed by Karma Lingpa, according to Guru Padmasambhava). Ayu SriMulyani Kromodidjojo

Sylvester Sebastian Smith The way I see life, what is important to me is my family. My studies take second place to this, since that is something I do for myself. Spending time with loved ones is time which can never be regained, so it is important for all of us to make sure that we appreciate those who care for us, and give something back to them in return. I suppose I have made somewhat of a joke, since I’m a retired teacher and I answered with a non-intellectual reply!

Ayu SriMulyani Kromodidjojo “We are what we think. All that we are, arises with our thoughts. With our thoughts, we make the world.” __ Adi Buddha. “My realization is higher than the sky, But my observance of karma is finer than grains of flour.”
– Padmasambhava. No need much thinking for something that not real yet … just be simple, and isn’t about intelectuality, is called logic … to learn dharma, we need logicality to realizing the phenomena of life, doesn’t matter who you love and meanful of you. But in logic all sentient beings is the reason we life now.

Sylvester Sebastian Smith Thank you, Rinpoche Tara and Ayu.
