I. OM SVASTI

There are also interesting news in our artistic programme WISDOM WITHOUT BORDERS, with messages from around the world .

2.1. ❁‿↗⁀◎⊙ღ۩۞۩๑ღ⊙◎‿↗⁀❁ THE QUINTESSENCE OF ALL VEHICLES The Ultimate Root tantra from the Heart Essence of Vajrasattva

In the language of India : VAJRA SATTVA CITTA TILAKA YANA SARVA HRIDAYA TANTRA NAMA
In the language of Tibet : rdo rje sems dpa*i rnying gi thig le theg pa kun gyi yang bcud ces bya ba . rdo rje sems dpa*i snying thig las :/: rtsa ba*i don rgyud ces bya ba bzungs so :/:
In the English language : The Tantra of the Heart Essence of Vajrasattva, the Quintessence of All Vehicles .

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cWLlxiJM0PY&list=UUyn-mzOvawP5_3tex70aSnw
Homage to the primordially awakened state, exactly as it is .
Here are the words that once upon a time , I then expounded .
It was within the all-pervasive realm of greatest bliss, in the vastness of this basic space, the great immensity that is the unconditioned nature , that , present by its own accord , the primordially awakened state was the Blessed One , the Glorious Samantabhadra .

And from his power of expression appeared the teacher Vajrasattva, the spontaneously perfected triple kaya . A throne of elephants, completely stable, was his seat, and in his right hand he held a golden vajra level with his heart, while in his left a silver bell was placed upon his thigh. Above his head was seated all the buddhas of the fivefold families. His body, fully graced with every ornament, was white and brilliant , crystalline with hue . Adorned with countless of the major and minor marks, his countenance was captivating, shining and resplendent . He had appeared spontaneously from within the source of dharmadhatu*s empty vastness , in a form possessing face and arms .

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
Now it was that from the expressive strength of his capacity, a retinue no different from himself appeared : Ratnasattva, Padmasattva, Karmasattva, Dharmasattva and also female Bodhisattvas, as well as Vajrapani and Prahevajra. As they were all his emanations, they remainded together – within the basic space of wakeful vastness , the single nature of all things .
And then the teacher spoke and he proclaimed this tantra of instrinsic greatness that is the essence of all tantras, the root of all the statements, the quintessence of all instructions, the extract of all teachings, the mirror that shows the three kayas, the refinement of the three levels – the outer, inner and the innermost – the secrecy even greater than secrets, the unmistaken realisation of Vajrasattva, the instructions to overturn samsara from its depths, and the way to awaken without cultivation .

OM VAJRA SATTVA HUM
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cWLlxiJM0PY&list=UUyn-mzOvawP5_3tex70aSnw
By simply proclaiming these words, the entire retinue was inspired by the unconditioned nature, and, with a single voice, they exclaimed :
Emaho, o marvel, Blessed Vajrasattva,
The sound of emptiness proclaimed ,
This secret Mantra of the greatest wonder
Has never reached my ears until this time,
So now I beg you , please explain its meaning .

HEALING MEDITATIONS & PRAYERS 2

As they beseeched using those words,
From within the vast, ineffable expanse
The teacher raised his voice and spoke :
Emaho, now listen , emanated retinue,
As I shall now explain the most sublime quintessence,
The true embodiment of every yana .
Retain it , with devout and unmistaken frame of mind .

Within the nature of mind , pure from the beginning ,
The unconfined expression can be manifest as path ,
So fruition of the great and primal liberation is achieved .
The quintessence of all vehicles
IS PRESENT IN YOURSELF – how wonderful !

These were the words he spoke .
And from the Heart Essence , The Quintessence of All Vehicles, this was the first chapter , on the setting.

VAJRA OF DHARMATA NATURAL SOUND

VAJRA OF DHARMATA NATURAL SOUND

2.2. Commentary by Tara Tulku Drimed Drolkhar :
HOMAGE TO GLORIOUS VAJRASATTVA
My Palden Tsawai Lama Kyabje Thinley Norbu Rinpoche (1931-2011) advised all his students to practice Vajrasattva sadhana twenty-one days after his parinirvana , end of Dezember 2011 . This shows us how important Vajrasattva Buddha really is in Living transmission .
His Body of enjoyment (Sambhogakaya ) is crystalline in hue . By purifying our physical body energy we can accomplish Vajrasattva Buddha and become crystalline ourselves . Crystal has great meaning in Ati Yoga Dzogchen symbolic transmission .Indeed: Vajrasattva embody all Sambhogakaya five falilies . First Dzogchen Ati Yoga master in our human world – Prahevajra Garab Dorje – was emanation of Vajrasattva Buddha ….
It is written in the Heart Essence of Vajrasattva : …«As they were all his emanations, they remainded togethjer – within the basic space of wakefull vastness …« »They remainded together » means , they were unseparable (Tib. Yermed ) …. And further we hear : …«The sound of emptiness proclaimed »…. This is secret sound , PRESENT IN OURSEVES , natural sound of Dharmata (Tib. Chonyid kyi rangdra) …. »Within the nature of this mind , pure from the beginning …« or better translation : primordially pure (Tib. Kadak) …. Sound of Dharmata is quintesssence of all vehicles – and is PRESENT IN YOURSELF – how wonderful. E MA HO !«

JETSUN MILAREPA ๑ღჱܓ•♫♪• SONG OF LOVE AND COMPASSION

Heritage of Mankind

JETSUN MILAREPA : SONG OF LOVE AND COMPASSION

Homage to Buddha Vajradhara, Tilopa, Naropa, Marpa Lotsawa, Milarepa, Gampopa. May this noble offering of Visual Dharma, created for the anniversary of Jetsun Milarepa, be pleasing to the Buddhas of the past. By reflecting, praying, meditating, favouring, rating 5*, sharing, commenting & embedding your positive Light energy increases. Send the Song of Love & Compassion throughout the world and take part in the Heritage of mankind.
I. Alive Dharma : Any sentient being who has heard the name Milarepa even once and in whom it awakened veneration, will not be reborn in lower realms for seven life times. This was prophesied by the Buddhas of the past. Jetsun Milarepa (1040-1123) is the most revered Buddhist mystic, poet and yogin who never founded any monastery. His life was very difficult and lead him from one remore area to another in S Tibet. For most of his adult life he lived in caves, surviving on whatever he was offered by local villagers or grew round about. He was known and loved by the songs he composed and sang to the people which poetically expressed his insights into the truths of Buddha Dharma. His main disciples were his attendant Rechungpa and the physician Gampopa. With this Visual Dharma we pay homage to all-present Lama Jetsun, as he was called by disciples. He sang this Song to Geshe Tsakpuhwa at the village of Drin. Geshe handed to him text on Buddhist logic and asked for explanation, word by word. The Master replied : You know very well the conceptual meaning of this text. But real spiritual meaning is found in abandoning eight worldly reactions and the personal ego, through destroying false perception of reality by realizing the single flavour of samsara and nirvana and through meditating in mountain solitudeArguing over words and pointing out what comes after that is totally useless if one does not practice the Dharma. I never studied logic. I know nothing about it and if I ever did, I forgot it now. I will tell you why. Listen to this Song. Thus he spoke and began to sing the Song of Love and Compassion. His spiritual Songs are timeless, but his advice is contemporary. His words arose spontaneously while listening the Sound of the Universe, as portrayed here. His Blessings pervade everywhere so that we can still listen to his Songs while turning our attention inward. This great joyful Song is accompanied by the mystic dance of the Dakini, the Sky Dancer. Milarepa can truly teach us what Faith and devotion mean : praying from the great energy of naturallness. His meditational deity Chakrasamvara liberated him from he coarse world of the senses . Those who practice secret mantrayana don´t debate. They don´t engage in doctrinal polemics & in pleasing unvirtuous relatives and friends. Have compassion, but no emotional hang-ups toward them, is Jetsun Milarepa´s advice. Contemplate that which is uncompaunded like the Sound*Light of Dharmata, as the Master did in the solitude of Himalayas. Your body is monastery , a temple. Respect it always beccome a vegetarian and save the planet !
II. Questions & answers : HH the Dalai Lama said when he answered questions in Dharamsala, Nov 2009 :
Is it permissible for Buddhists to eat meat ? The best is to give up meat completely. Festivals and ceremonies in all Tibetan monasteries & nunneries should be completely vegetarian.
Is it better to pray in one´s own language or in Tibetan ? It is better to pray in one´s own language.
P-S. Visual Dharmas are great help in this regard they have English translations .

WORLD PEACE & GLOBAL HUMAN RIGHTS

Alive Dharma teaching, Oct. 11, 2009

„All phenomena arise from circumstances.

Because good circumstances can arise through good intention,

Whatever we pray for will appear.”

Buddha Shakyamuni

Dear Friends of Buddha Dharma worldwide :

Together we pray for inner and outer peace on the planet ,

For Enlightenment of all sentient beings.

I.Introduction:

1.1.NOBEL PEACE PRIZE 2009

Heartfelt congratulations to US President BARACK OBAMA, Friend of Buddha Dharma on youtube, for Nobel Peace Prize award. We all rejoice, because you deserve the award ***** In received mail to all supporters – A CALL TO ACTION – it is said :

“Tara Tulku —
This morning, Michelle and I awoke to some surprising and humbling news. At 6 a.m., we received word that I’d been awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for 2009.
To be honest, I do not feel that I deserve to be in the company of so many of the transformative figures who’ve been honored by this prize — men and women who’ve inspired me and inspired the entire world through their courageous pursuit of peace.
But I also know that throughout history the Nobel Peace Prize has not just been used to honor specific achievement; it’s also been used as a means to give momentum to a set of causes.
That is why I’ve said that I will accept this award as a call to action, a call for all nations and all peoples to confront the common challenges of the 21st century. These challenges won’t all be met during my presidency, or even my lifetime. But I know these challenges can be met so long as it’s recognized that they will not be met by one person or one nation alone.
This award — and the call to action that comes with it — does not belong simply to me or my administration; it belongs to all people around the world who have fought for justice and for peace. And most of all, it belongs to you, the men and women of America, who have dared to hope and have worked so hard to make our world a little better.
So today we humbly recommit to the important work that we’ve begun together. I’m grateful that you’ve stood with me thus far, and I’m honored to continue our vital work in the years to come.
Thank you,
President Barack Obama

Our comment for CNN
BARACK OBAMA completely deserves Nobel Peace Prize 2009 *****
Americans must help him to accomplish all noble projects soon.
Don´t be so sceptical – say to yourself :Yes,we also can !
Also help to free Aung San Suu Kyi in Burma.
BUDDHA DHARMA – OBF International“

We also wrote our hopes / wishes for world peace and improvement of human rights in Burma and Tibet at Care2ActionAlert.

All who care for achievement of world peace – act now and share your hopes for peace *****

Care2ActionAlert

Congratulate Obama on His
Nobel Prize — and Share
Your Hopes for Peace!

Forward to friends >>


Hi Lama Tara Tulku,

The 2009 Nobel Peace Prize committee has awarded President Obama with this year’s honor, citing his “extraordinary efforts to strengthen international diplomacy and cooperation between peoples” exemplified in his April 5 speech in which he called for a world without nuclear weapons.

Congratulate Obama on receiving this honor >>

He has many opportunities to be a peace advocate today, as his Administration considers:

  • the course of the wars in Central Asia and Iraq,

  • how diplomacy can resolve tensions with Iran and North Korea through dialogue better than violence,

  • a federal budget that devotes too much money to weapons and too little for families struggling to get by in this economic crisis, and

  • how to create the nuclear-free future that Obama has strongly articulated.

Today is a golden opportunity to show that a pro-peace majority supports the President’s first steps toward peace and will help him take the next steps as well. Congratulate Barack Obama and share with him your vision of how we can all help wage peace >>

Thank you,
LiAnna

II.HUMAN RIGHTS: Visual Dharma-Burma- Urgent appeal to all

2.1.Human rights are closely connected with world peace : Human rights as stated in the Universal declaration of the United nations. We all know that UN need to be reformed, esp. its Security council . Without reform of the Security council there will be no improvement of human rights in Tibet and Burma. This is the fact in today´s globalised world. And we strongly encourage US President Obama to go on with his noble attempts to make all nations aware why its important to make UN more alive, more responsible and wise. Not only in words, but also in noble actions ! Two years ago we witnessed UN inability to stop imprisonment of Buddhists in Burma, during and after peaceful demonstrations. More than 220 Buddhists (monastics and non-monastics) are still imprisoned in Burma ! Please, act now and sign the petitions connected with Burma , to free Aung San Suu Kyi , who also obtained Peace Prize Award. And to free many imprisoned Buddhists in Burma and Tibet. We all pray for them!   Here is the invitation for everyone :

Dear Friends,
I have just read and signed the online petition:
“Free Saffron Monks”
hosted on the web by PetitionOnline.com, the free online petition
service, at:
http://www.PetitionOnline.com/28762/
I personally agree with what this petition says, and I think you might
agree, too.  If you can spare a moment, please take a look, and consider
signing yourself.
Best wishes,
BUDDHA DHARMA-OBF INTERNATIONAL, signed as 1534.

Text from the petition site :

“To:  Goverments of the World , United Nations High Commissioner of Human Rights Geneva, UN Security Council, Asean, FREE BURMA PROJECT
Free The Saffron Monks & Nuns From Prison.
Please lend your support for the release of Burma’s 220 monks and nuns who remain prisoners of conscience for participating in the peaceful demonstrations of September 2007. The “Saffron Revolution” drew tens of thousands of monks and nuns on to the streets. They chanted the
Metta Sutta (loving-kindness), for the well being and merit of all living beings. Monks and nuns implored the SPDC government to act with compassion towards the people suffering under economic hardship and to apologize and reform their actions taken against the monks and the religion. In response, the regime unleashed a violent and unprecedented attack against the demonstrators that continued off the streets and into the monastery grounds.
For a month, the military continued to round up protestors who had participated, raiding 52 monasteries, often at night. Monks were beaten, killed and many more carted off to prison with no regard to their age or standing. Revered abbots in their 80’s and 90’s and novices as young as five were disrobed and placed into detention centers.
By some estimates, as many as 1,400 Sanghas were rounded up without respect to the procedures of Burmese or International law. Sanghas endured beatings, interrogations, and torture. Many of them disappeared– sent away to distant prisons where their families and monastic companions lost track of them. Official statistics on the number of monks and nuns who were killed in the uprisings will never be known.
Crematoriums were put into 24-hour operation in the days following the crackdown to burn the bodies of those who were killed on the streets and inside the Monasteries. Unconfirmed reports assert that in order to keep the Sanghas from reaching the hospitals where they could be seen and counted, injured monks and nuns were taken to the crematoriums to be cremated alive.
Awareness and condemnation are vital tools of accountability that we in the International community can take to exert pressure on the regime to free the remaining Saffron Revolution monks and nuns still in prison under conditions that are a form of torture. Please give your support and solidarity to them and to the Burmese people.
Sign our petition to free Burma’s Saffron Monks, Nuns, Political Prisoners today! freeburmaproject@gmail.com
Sincerely,
The Undersigned

3.1. Questions and answers

a) Dear venerable Sir , thank you so much for your lovely response on my questions . Its are important to understand the whole world of Samsara with six realms of existence . I’m so happy to read a great story of ( My lap is your perch ) . But i don’t understand the meaning of the word Amitabha , please explain it to me. Thank you .
Please enjoy my question , thank you .
Angels , gods,  demons ,  hungry ghosts ,  hell beings are beings that we can not see , but they  exist in their realms . In each realm , there is a king that govern them forever .
Q.104 – As they are invisible beings , how can we meet them ?
May peace and happiness be upon you always !
nutier

Answer: Amitabha is the Buddha of the Pure land in the West, which is named in Sanskrit : Sukhavati, Tibetan : Dewa Chen. Amitabha is the Buddha of Infinite light and has special connection with human beings. When Buddha Amitabha was the Bodhisattva (still practicing the Buddha´s Path toward complete Enlightenmnet) He made special vows to deliver every being who remembers His name (Amitabha), to be reborn in His Pure land . This means that every being who is reborn in Amitabha´s Pure land is liberated from samsara. There are many millions of Pure land Buddhists , esp. in China and Japan, but also on other continents. They are mostly vegetarians ! Nice that you like the story : My lap is your pearch. It is very creative….See also related Visual Dharma: Amitabha Buddha of Infinite Light.

I little bit corrected your question, making it more clear : gods, demi gods, hungry ghosts, hell beings are all invisible beings . Every realm has Buddha who teaches in that realm. Shakyamuni Buddha and his emanation Guru Padmasambhava are teaching in  human realm. There is no need to want to see invisible beings. Shamanistic traditions are related with making connections with these invisible beings. We Buddhists remember all sentient beings in samsara, praying for enlightenmnet of every being.

b)Dear venerable Sir , please enjoy my question , thank you .
It
 is true that we can not meet invisible beings . According to Buddhism , we can see them from mediations and after our lives . All of the realms of life are depicted between the jaws , or in the arms of a monstrous yamaraja ( king of the death ) .The king of the death judges all invisible beings and all living beings.
Q.105 – In the Samsara , there are six realms of existence . Are there also six kings of the death ?
May peace and happiness be upon you always !
nutier

Answer:One Yamaraja or the king of death holds samsara or cyclic existence in his arms and jaws. In the center of the wheel of samsara are three poisons , namely : ignorance, attachment and aggression, symbolised by three animals. Research which mental poison  is connected with which animal . When a being releases grasping, symbolised by Yamaraja, samsara also collapses. Related Dharma teaching is : Parting from four attachments (published at our blogs some time ago). Take a close look.

c)Dear venerable Sir , thank you so much for your best gift of Dharma. I appreciate it so much  and I continue to read it. When i have any doubt , i note it as some questions to ask you every week end .
Please enjoy my question , thank you .
You wrote that, ( Human being with a lot of ignorance will be reborn as an animal. Human being with ignorance + stinginess will be reborn as hungry ghost. Human being with ignorance+stinginess+aggression will be reborn in the hell realms ) .
A lot of human beings go to hell where they will undergo all suffering caused by their bad actions, bad speech , and bad
 minds .
Q.106 – When human beings go into the hell , will they stay there forever or just to serve their sentences , and will return also as human beings ?

Answer : Sufferings in hell realms, both heat and cold hell ream, are intense. They are described in the Dharma book by ven. Patrul Rinpoche : Kunzang Lamai Zhalung – translated as: Words of my perfect Teacher. Human being which commints crime with killing , has a lot of aggression and this mental imprint (aggression, anger) remains as his last thought when he dies, will be reborn in the hell realm. Beings reborn in hell stay there very long time, but not forever. Some Buddhist masters practice Bardo deliverance ceremony, to liberate beings from samsara. Some masters perform Phowa – transference of conciousness of the deceised to the Pure land of Buddha Amitabha.  In Shitro practice we  make name burning, which helps the deceised . Spiritual help for dying is very important part of Buddhist practice.

d)Dear friend,
Do Lien Shen Rinpoche have a personal e-mail address ?
Since 1996 I practise “yoga” padmasana formation, without a teacher, without mantra.I feel “inner energy” in my body.
I often feel sensation such as like snow comes on my head.
It’s cool…….Keep me healthy too.
Maybe YOU have one that I can make a consultation with ?
Can a TAOISM MAN be baptized as Satyabudhagama Buddhisme too ?
Regards,   H.S.

Answer: One can follow Grand master Lu`s teachings also on internet or through web cam almost every Saturday. There are many meditative experiences on the Path of Taoism as well as Buddhism. In China many practitioners successfully connect Buddhism  with Taoist methods of cultivation. Yoga practice should make one healthy ,as you said,  not sick . Inner energy is connected with opening of  energy channels and chakras. We always recommend vegetarian diet, no alcohol, drugs, tobacco and other poisons. Yoga is the way of purification of one´s energy. All authentic spiritual traditions agree on that. We also recommend Buddhist Chi Kung Energy workout as a daily practice. Being baptised into Buddhist path means to receive Refuge in the three Jewels (Buddha-Dharma-Sangha) and later to Three Roots (Guru-Dewa-Dakini). First Refuge introduces  you to Mahayana Buddhist path, second Refuge to three Roots to Vajrayana Buddhist path- it has inner meaning , connected with meditational deities sadhanas, working with inner energy, channels and essences . See our Visual Dharmas for more explanation (in descriptions) about Vajrayana Buddhist path, esp. Vajrasattva 100-syllable mantra.. Having successful Taoist base of spiritual development you can surely become advanced Vajrayana practitioner in this life. Wish you all the best . OM MANI PADME HUM
