III.INTERNATIONAL INSTITUTE FOR CONTEMPORARY BUDDHIST STUDIES : Dharma teaching * Happy Valentines Day

3.1. BUDDHA MAITREYA´S GIFT OF TRUTH TO ALL WHO SEEK TRUE LOVE is published to benefit all beings. Wherever this Visual Dharma is played it will bring positive energy to the place and all beings who respect Buddha´s precious Teachings.All Visual Dharmas are empowered with the practice of the self-liberated Sound of Dharmata . General information about embedding and comments are published in the Gift of Truth.
It is very auspicious to play this Visual Dharma also at engagement ceremonies, marriage ceremonies or at such anniversaries, to be reminded of the qualities of True love.
BUDDHA MAITREYA is the fifth spiritual Guide, the fifth Buddha who will be born into this world from the Tushita. He will continue the Teachings of Buddha Shakyamuni. Already now we can nurture in ourselves the spiritual qualities of Buddha Maitreya´s True love. True love is unselfish and giving, shining like the sun. True love brings peace, wisdom and the tears of deep appreciation. True love is expression of our innate Buddha nature. In Buddhism we also call it authentic compassion and Bodhicitta. True love can create miracles because it is uncreated and timeless. True love is blessing which need to be deeply appreciated and nurtured by everyone. Because of True love ancient artists created wonderful works of ancient art. Because of True love contemporary artists create contemporary contemplative art — Ars sacra. True love is sacred. Poets try to express it with Words of Wisdom. Painters try to paint its shining forms and colours. Scientists try to explore its unmeasurable deepness. Astronoms try to find it in deep — space – galaxies.
Astrologers try to calculate it in natal and partnership charts. Politicians try to make it obvious during their campains. Priests try to devotedly worship it in the name of God. And lovers try to express it on Valentines day by offering flowers and heart whispering. But everyone knows that True love is Bliss and a miracle ! I am so grateful to all Buddhas and Bodhisattvas who always pray for us all with their True Love. I am so grateful to Bodhisattvas who because of this True love toward all sentient beings incarnate again and again : to show us the Path of Liberation and Enlightenment. Let us follow on their footsteps of True love.
WAKE UP TRUE LOVE IN YOURSELF —
WAKE UP THE SLEEPING BUDDHA. As it said in MO Divination system of venerable Mipham Rinpoche : DHI PA Female Golden Fish :
Because one bathes in nectar, ones happiness increases. May everyone endevour (True love) in accordance with ones wishes, intentions and aims. Two golden fishes is ancient Buddhist symbol, representing the liberation from samsara. It is one of the Eight auspicious signs (Skt. Asta Mangalam).
PRACTICAL INSTRUCTION :
Only speaking about Enlightenment and True love is not enough . Put your True Love into action :

1. Give up eating meat, drinking alcohol, smoking cigarettes or even drugs. Don´t stay in rooms where people smoke!
Support the laws which forbid smoking, if such laws don´t
already exist in your country. If you live in area where air is polluted (like in the most cities and settlements), use air ionisers in your apartment and at working place.
Detoxify your body energy with the help of Buddhist wholesome Medicine, esp. high quality extracts of medicinal herbs and wholesome vegetarian diet. Keep cleanliness of your body and your immediate environment on high level. This is approach of Buddhist Kriya yoga. Pure outside elements (space, air, fire, water , earth) support your inner pure elements . Connection between them is part of precious Atiyoga/Dzogchen Buddhist Teachings. As educated human being you must be aware of the international day against violence toward women (November 25). Much of violence toward women is because and in the name of alcohol, drugs and eating meat. It is well known fact of science (neurobiology) that a man who drink alcohol can experience woman only at the level of root chakra (sexual chakra), seeing her only as a desirable sexual object without any spiritual dimension. This is disrespectful toward women!
(Note:It is wrong to think that one only need to stop drinking, eating meat or  using drugs : one must be successful in purifying ones body. Without detoxifying ones body poisons are part of every cell! Material karmic body influences your way of thinking.
There are many published scientific studies about the relation between the body and mind. ) In Vajrayana Buddhist view  men and women are equal and have sacred outlook of themselves. As successful Vajrayana Buddhist practitioner one see oneself as a Wisdom Deity with whom one has special connection.

Buddhist tantras give very little practical instructions about controlling and transforming sexual energy. Such knowledge is considered secret in ancient times.  Selected internet links are from Taoist yoga which certainly benefits all who wish to proceed in health and spiritual path. Very beneficial knowledge also for all Buddhist Vajrayana  meditators.

3.2. Questions and answers :

nutier France

Dear venerable  , please enjoy my questions , thank you .
In the immaterial world , the highest in these realms , the pure abodes  are accessible only to those who have attained to ” non-returning ” , the stage of Arahantship . It consists of four realms that are the abodes of those who pass away while meditating in the formless jhanas .
Q.149 – If one attains ” non-returning ” , does he go directly into Nirvana after death ?
After attaining non-returning there are still many stages of the Bodhisattva path leading to complete Enlightenment. These stages can be accomplished in one, three or many more lifetimes of diligent, devoted and authentic Dharma practice . It is useless to discuss these stages – if one is not yet vegetarian. To avoid eating meat, drinking alcohol and keeping pure precepts of Buddha Dharma is path of sila or self-discipline, leading to Samadhi and prajna (wisdom of discernment).

Q.150 – In Buddhism , when we die , our minds change instantly to other corps . How can the immaterial beings get lives if they haven’t the corps ?
After death the consciousness (mind)  does not change immediately to another body (as you said). There is period of 49 days or the bardo state. Beings in the bardo state wander around in search for realm where they will incarnate again. Virtuous or unvirtuous karma and tendencies are leading their wandering.

Q.151 – If Arahant is the name of Buddha , how long he was here before to be reborn as Siddhartha ? Previous lives of Prince Siddharta are well described in the Jataka tales. As all of us also the Buddha had infinite lives , before he descended to human realm from Tushita heaven.
Q.152 – Is  Bodhisattva a former buddha’s name in Tusita heaven before becoming Arahant in immaterial world , or in reverse ?
May peace and happiness be upon you always !  nutier

Bodhisattva is not the name only for a Buddha while He was on the path of Enlightenmnet. Bodhisattva is the description for any Buddhist meditator who has the Bodhisattva vow, who has Bodhicitta of aspiration and application.

To understand this please study about the Mahayana path .

May you always experience  peace and happiness, dear Friend  of Buddha Dharma. Your many new questions will be answered in next teachings.

IV. WISDOM WITHOUT BORDERS

In this special month there are important  anniversaries of accomplished Buddhist master . May their Words of wisdom illuminate  all :

“I am the Sun in the zenith. On whichever continent I shine, I don´t cats a shadow.”  Drukpa Kunley (Bhutan, Tibet 1455-1570)

“When I meditated on love and compassion , I forgot the difference between myself and others.”       Jetsün Milarepa (Tibet 1040-1123)
