_/♥\_DHARMACHAKRA♫♥♫ FOUR NOBLE TRUTHS

102. Alive Dharma Teaching
OM SVASTI Blessed and auspicious Dharmachakra day to all readers at the Heritage of Mankind and to all Friends of Buddha Dharma-OBF International.
Today we reflect on the inner meaning of Lord Shakyamuni Buddha first turning of the Dharma Wheel: Four Noble Truths . We must understand them psychologically, not so much philosophically . We must internalise Lord Buddhas teachings to be His true disciples. Lord Buddha did not turn the Dharma wheel to establish philosophical debates and speculations of intellectuals. He is teaching each and every one of us directly , not hierarchically. His compassionate Dhama teachings are our best friend . His enlightened Dharmas are for all times and all generations, until samsara is emptied of suffering and its causes . May we, His devoted disciples, be fulfilled with Buddhas blessings through the natural Sound of Dharmata, the ultimate Buddha nature in unimpeded continuity .
_/♥\_OM MUNE MUNE MAHA MUNAYE SVAHA _/♥\_
To inspire you in Dharma practice in daily life we prepared extensive Dharma Practice Calendar with related ongoing events on Facebook , related Visual Dharmas- which spiritually guides you in 3rd millennium and with related Alive Dharma Teachings . In Wisdom Without Borders we bring you oue heartfelt congratulations to HH 14th Dalai Lama birthday and his reply .
May virtues prevail.
I. INTERNATIONAL INSTITUTE FOR CONTEMPORARY BUDDHIST STUDIES
1.1. The Gift of Truth excels all other gifts.
Four Noble Truths (arya sacca) are the briefest synthesis of the entire Teachings of Buddhism, since all those manifold doctrines of the threefold Canon are included therein. They are : truth of suffering, of the origin of suffering, of the extinction of suffering and the Eightfold Noble Path leading to the extinction of suffering.
1.Dukkha: all forms of existence are unsatisfactory and subject to suffering : birth, decay, death, sorrow, lamentation, pain, grief and despair are suffering.
2. Tanha : all suffering and all rebirth is created by craving : sensual craving (kama tanha), craving for existence (bhava tanha), craving for non-existence or self-annihilation (vibhava tanha).
3. Nirodha: extinction of craving results in extinction (nirodha) of rebirth & suffering = nibbana.
4.Magga : extinction of suffering is accomplished by the Eightfold Noble Path which is wisdom (panna), morality (sila, Tib. Tsultrim) and concentration (Samadhi).
Suffering is compared with a disease; origin of suffering with cause of the disease; extinction of suffering with the cure of disease; the Path with the medicine.
8-fold Noble path is :
1.right view : understand the Four Noble truths
2.right thought : your mind must be free from sensual lust, ill-will and cruelty
3.right speech : abstain from lying, tale-bearing, harsh words and foolish babble
4.right action: abstain from injuring living beings, stealing & unlawful sexual intercourse.
5.right livelihood : abstain from wrong living and gain ( gambling, selling of alcohol, meat, drugs, weapons etc).
6.right effort : maintain virtuous states of mind and virtuous results
7.right mindfulness : avoid greed & grief and be mindful
8.right concentration : dwell in four absorptions
In this Visual Dharma we see the Stupa of Sarnath. Buddha`s teachings are timeless & always contemporary : we see traffic at Budapest city , bridge over the river Danube and the Balaton lake.
II.Visionary Art : Wisdom without borders- Ars sacra*contemplative Art connects cultures, places, languages & musical expressions with mantra. It is Healing Art & Visual Therapy.View it with relaxation & awareness.
Buddha Shakyamuni taught the 4 Noble Truths 7 weeks after his Enlightenment at Bodhgaya. He taught these Truths to 5 ascetic disciples at Sarnath, on the Dharmachakra day .
1.Truth of suffering must be fully understood
2.Truth of craving to be abandoned
3.Truth (Nibbana) to be realised
4.Truth of the Path to be cultivated
It is said in Visuddhi Magga XVI :
Mere suffering exists, no sufferer is found. The deeds are , but no doer of the deeds is there. Nirvana is, but no traveller on it is seen.
This is introduction of the doctrine of Anatta / egolessness, found only in Buddhism. On Mahayana Path Anatta is introduced as shunyata/voidness . On Vajrayana Path it is introduced as 3 dimensions. In Atiyoga Dzogpa chenpo it is introduced with the Base,Path,Fruit.
Buddha Manjushri said in ancient sacred text : Manjushri-nama-samgiti : After I explained three vehicles, I stand on the Fruit of One Vehicle. All doctrines & orders of Buddhism are essential Oneness.
This Visual Dharma is entitled the Dharma Wheel Path of Peace, Happiness & Bliss. Happiness is the indispensable condition for attaining concentration of mind (Samadhi). The mind of the happy one has concentration as its fruit and rewardIn him who is filled with happiness, right concentration has found a foundation.
May the Dharma wheel , related to the Heart chakra with 8-petalled Lotus, awakens your Heart*Bodhi Mind. May this Visual Dharma, empowered with the Sound*Light of Dharmata bring you peace, happiness and Bliss.
BE VEG. GO GREEN. SAVE THE PLANET.

3.2. Dalai Lama
I would like to thank everyone who attended celebrations of my birthday. At the same time I would like to express my deep appreciation of the many friends and well-wishers who, remembering that it was my birthday, sent their warm greetings; among them many friends in the People’s Republic of China.
I am also aware that my fellow countrymen and women in Tibet would have remembered me on this day, although they would have been unable to participate in celebrations due of circumstances beyond their control. I would like to thank all of them too, while expressing my own admiration of their indomitable Tibetan spirit, their courage and determination.
