Re: GOOD OR BAD, HARD TO SAY ! Alive Dharma teaching, Aug. 23, 2009
Hi: just a quick note to thank you for the email you sent me, esp. the part on “good or bad- hard to say”.
I’m having a hard time forgiving someone & this has helped me see things from a different perspective-we all have made many mistakes and in the end you never know where life will take you. Anyway thanks again.
Om Tare Tuttare Ture Svaha!
Om Mani Padme Hum!

3.1. Visual Dharma : Teaching about Seven-line invocation of Guru Rinpoche
3.2. Questions and answers : Nutier , France :
“Dear venerable Sir , please enjoy my question ,thank you.
Wholesome , unwholesome and neutral consciousness come from five sense organs as the touch , the smell , the taste, the hearing and the sight .These sense organs make contact with five doors of organs , exp : the skin takes contact with good , bad , and neutral objects , temperatures , wint , and also the same fonctions for other organs of sense .
Q.100 – When we have three branches of consciousness , have we also three minds that govern each of them ?
May peace and happiness be upon you always !
There is only one consciousness/mind which need to be liberated from samsara / cyclic existence. There is nothing wrong with senses : it is auspicious to have sharp senses , like the ability of hearing and seeing ; the ability to see sacred Buddhist images and the ability to hear sacred Dharma can help everyone to remember the wisdom instructions when one arrives in the bardo state . At the time of death all senses are dissolving one by one, but the ability to hear dissolves as the last one . Isn´t this interesting for you as the researcher with kin senses ?!

“Dear venerable Sir , thank you so much for your kind response on my questions , I’m appreciating it so much . I think that , it’s too hard to become vegetarian as you- because I’m a layman who live in new human society . If i will become a vegetarian I will leave out of my family too . Yes , it’s so interesting to know about ( Good or bad , hard to say ) . I will get this recite to my colleges and my*youtube*friends. .
In the other hand , I have noted the three branchs of consciousness from Buddhist monk who wrote a Buddhist book . That is why i asked you the question . I think that , we have always three kinds of consciousness in our brain , but we cannot separate its as well as Buddha* . May peace and happiness be upon you always !
Answer : It is not hard to become a vegetarian at all. Just think and see with the eye of Truth, that you are eating corpses of dead animals. Join social network www.protectanimalsandnature.ning.com and have a closer look about killing animals in this saha world. Also advice your relatives to began cooking very healthy vegatarian food – for example rice porridge (Gen Mai) . The recipe is found on our channel : OBF Buddhist medicine – group. Thank´s to Shifu John Chow for improving the recipe with Codonopsis (Dang Shen). We appreciate J
There is no need to leave your family to become a vegetarian. If all your relatives will become vegetarians, there will be more and more understanding, peace, compassion and wisdom in your relations . This is important for harmony. Remember the story that was sent few weeks ago : Mercy begins at the dinner table !

According to Buddhist Dharma is the seat of consciousness in the heart, not in the brain. We must all “think from the heart” and develop prajna . Prajna is wisdom of discernment . Remember the Prajnaparamita or shortly : The Heart sutra. Yes. Lord Buddha has fully developed Prajna = Wisdom of discrnment, therefore He delivered so many teachings about cause, condition and efefct (that is , about karma) to human beings.
May you and your family be always peaceful, joyous and happy *****

P.S. The question about the meaning of Buddhist deities will be answered in next Alive Dharma teaching.
3.3 Buddha Dharma replies– published on other internet sites : http://www.TibetFocus.com Swiss
Studieren geht über reinkarnieren: Der 24jährige Osel Hita Torres möchte nicht der Lama Tenzin Osel Rinpoche sein! (Study goes through reincarnation : the 24th year old Osel Hita Torres don´t want to be Lama Osel Rinpoche !)
Dear Ösel Tenzin,
when we travelled from Italy to Swiss we met you for a moment at the monastery of Mt. Pellerin. It must be around 1991 or similarly. You were crying in one room because of some fewer . Later you gave me little bit of juice in almost empty plastic bottle. It was very symbolicaly…
Later we met you again for few moments at Merigar, at the Teachings of the XIV. Dalai Lama, consecrating the Shang-Shung institute. At the old stupa I offered you little bit of torma that was presented at the ceremony…
We did not follow your spiritual development in last 10 years or even more. While returning from 9th Atiyoga Dzogpa chenpo retreat at the Adriatic sea in Croatia now in June 2009 – article published about you in Slovenian newspaper appeared on our way to Atiyoga Ling in Austria.
We think you are doing right by having plans to make movies, documentaries and audio visual teachings. Buddha*s teachings are timeless and can be expressed in manyfold compassionate ways like the rays of the Sun … Our motivation is to benefit beings through Visual Dharmas-Buddhist teachings for 3rd millenium.
May you always experience mental peace, joy, happiness and true wisdom.
And may you benefit beings through innovative Dharma teachings. )): Yours in the Dharma:
