Topic : Birth, Aging, Sickness and Death
[DISCUSSION 2] Should the Scripture be able to provide an answer to why we are
born, grow old, become sick and die? (YES/NO)
QUESTION 1. What is the solution to be free from the fetters of birth, aging, sickness and death?
(max 3 sentences) OM SVASTI My root Guru Kyabje Thinley Norbu Rinpoche (1931-2011)
said in his famuous book the White sail :
»While briefly lent this precious human body*s white sail
Pushed by clean intention*s gentle wind
Without turning back toward miserable samsaric deserts
And making the error of missing this chance
Try to receive virtue*s jewels by crossing the waves of ocean mind
To the serene continent of the Triple Gems
Since doing this is more meaningful than anything else .« (1)
supporting idea or example Solution to be free from the fetters of birth, aging, sickness and death is to
have faith in the Buddha and his spiritual teachings called Dharma .
After understanding that life is impermanent , we start with Buddhist spiritual
Path toward liberation from cyclic existence of repeated births and death
in samsara . This spiritual process continues over many lives , not only one life .
When we are reborn as humans and we practice the Buddhist teachings in
our daily lives, we have precious human body, precious human life which
should not be wasted . In this life we should accumulate merit or positive energy
and consequently wisdom . We should avoid negative actions of body , speech
and mind and accumulate positive actions . Buddha nature is in us and in every
sentient being . We must discover it and gain confidence in our Buddha nature .

Boston & London, 1992 , 1st edition

3. Visual Dharma :White sail, part 2
QUESTION 2. Is there a record of a case where one is free from the fetters of birth, aging, sickness and death in your scripture? (Is there evidence to believe it?)
(max 3 sentences) Yes, there are many records of Buddhist practitioners liberation from samsara .
Shakyamuni Buddha made a prophecy in the Maha Parinirvana sutra :
“When I passed beyond this world of sorrow, three hundred sixty
years from now in Udiyana , land of braided people , to the daughter of the
monarch Uparaja will appear a yogi child without a father who is blessed by
Buddha Vajrasattva and bear the name of Delightful Vajra .
He will spread doctrine of the Ati Yoga teaching . “
Maha Parinirvana sutra is one of very important Mahayana or Great vehicle
sacred text of Buddhism extensively studied in Pure land Buddhism .
Its also very relevant in Ati Yoga Dzogchen lineage of Buddhism .
supporting idea or example Another emanation of Shakyamuni Buddha was Guru Padmasambhava .
According to terma or hidden treasures lineages Padmasambhava was born
on the lotus , on the sacred syllable Hum which was shining from the Heart
of Amitabha Buddha . Vajrayana Buddhists , esp. Nyigmapa chant every
10th lunar day Invocation of Guru Padmasambhava or Seven –line prayer which
begins with :
HUM Urgyen yulgi nab chan tsam/ Hum On the pistil of the lotus …
In 8th Century A.D. in Tibet 25 disciples of Guru Padmasambhava attained
Rainbow Body thus transcending birth, aging, sickness and death .
Also few following generations of Nyingma masters attained Great transfer
or Phowa Chenpo of Light Body , disappearing immediately from the material
realm and being visible only to people with wisdom eyes …Later generations of Nyingma
masters attained Rainbow body at the time of passing away , slowly
diminishing their material body into Light . Such was the attainment of
famuous Nyala Pema Dondul from East Tibet in 2nd part of 19 Century (1872) .
In recent years Buddhist practitioners also attained the Rainbow body .
Khenchen Pentse Rinpoche , Buddhist master whom I met personaly in Vienna
in Austria where he gave extensive Buddhist initiations and transmission
of sacred text Manjushri-nama-samgiti had many miracles when he passed
away in 2002 : “ Following his passing a remarkable story emerged.
Many years prior to his passing, Khenchen Padma Tsewang had given a blessed
bottle of water to a devoted lay person. The water was wrapped in a silk prayer
scarf (khata) and had remained untouched for years. Eventually the devotee
removed the khata and discovered that the water had been completely
transformed into white, pearl-like relics. He brought the relics to Khenchen
Padma Tsewang and was instructed to keep them hidden. The relics were
only revealed after the passing of Khenchen Padma Tsewang. The devotee
returned the relics to Pukang Monastery to be distributed among the students.
This incredible story became widely known throughout Tibet—to this day,
the relics continue to grow and to be given away. The life of Khenchen Padma
Tsewang continues to inspire many followers and serves as an example of the
conduct and wisdom of a great practitioner.”

3. Khenchen Padma Tsewang biography : https://www.bodhicittasangha.org/khenchen-padma-tsewang/
4. Manjushri-nama-samgiti : recitation by Khenchen Pentse Rinpoche :
QUESTION 3. Mankind has been suffering due to birth, aging, sickness and death. Can we say a scripture is a guide for the mankind, if it doesn’t explain a way to be free from birth, aging, sickness and death?
(max 3 sentences) Buddhist sacred texts give precise teachings how to become free from birth ,
aging, sickness and death . Therefore they are a GUIDE for the mankind .
We call Ati Yoga Dzogchen Guide for the evolution of humanity !
supporting idea or example In the Bardo Guidebook it is said : “ What can others do for someone who has
passed away ? Many things can be done to help the dying person : different
rituals can be performed ; certain substances can be put into the mouth of the
dying person ; the Liberation through hearing in the bardo can be recited and
a sacred image called Liberation through wearing can be attached to the body …”
We also practice Shitro sadhana with many Vajrasattva mantras and
visualisations to help them . This is done not only for humans , but also for
animals . Another helpful Buddhist practice is singing of the Vajra song :
benefits are described in the Union of Sun & Moon tantra of Dzogchen Upadesha .
Every place where Vajra song is practiced becomes a sacred place . Everyone
who hears the Vajra song has good karmic connection which will help him on
the spiritual path of liberation and enlightenment .
May the merit and virtues accrued from this work adorn
the Buddha´s Pure Land,
Repaying the four kinds of kindnesses above and relieve
the sufferings of those in the three paths below.
May those who see and hear of this all bring forth the heart
of Understanding and live the Dharma for the rest of this life.
Then be born together in the Land of Infinite Bliss.
Homage to Amitabha Buddha ๑۩۞۩๑
