I.Dear Friends and Associates of BUDDHA DHARMA – OBF INTERNATIONAL ,

what were your steps on spiritual path of liberation ? Please share your stories . When we progress in life , we often look back and try to understand ourselves better , like a »life review« . Hope your life is pleasant and relaxed , sailing toward the »other shore« of enlightenment .


 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)

Rinpoche migrated from Nepal to USA and lived there in second part of his life (Delhi NY and Palm dessert CA). He was reborn into his family in Bhutan
and is guiding sentient beings toward liberation . He really helped me to understand the Ati yoga Dzogchen Buddhist path of self-liberation , teaching me with pith instructions written in 21 letters .

Dharma Letters

In spring 2000, that is eleven years before his passing away he blessed me with the trasnmission of Ati yoga lineage from samantabhadra-Vajrasattva-Garab Dorje . I remain forever grateful for his sublime Guidance and blessings .

“The Mind transmission of the buddhas of three times is known as a transmission through blessings – naturally perfect blessings of all buddhas of the past and the future and of those who reside in the present. Independent of articulated words this transmission is understood and realized through the natural Sound of Dharmata.” Wellspring of the great perfection – The lives and insights of the early masters , compiled and edited by E.P. Kunsang, The Twelve Dzogchen Buddhas , An excerpt from the great history of the Heart Essence , part One belonging to the instruction section Cycle of the Heart Essence of Vimalamitra , pg 119. Rangjung Yeshe Publications.

My CRYSTAL shown in the Visual Dharma : White sail is directly connected with the transmission of the Ati yoga essence lineage . Crystal represent three modes of energy : Tsal, Rolpa and Dan – as beautifully explained in the book of Dzogchen master Chogyal Namkhai Norbu : Crystal and the way of light (2).

Chogyal Namkhai Norbu often gives open webcast and everyone nowdays can learn about Dzogchen path . But it was very different in previous 20. century when we travelled for many times to Toscana for 800 km one way to hear him teaching the Path of self-liberation … So read My search for Buddhist Dharma with open mind and heart and get inspired …


2.1. My search for Buddhist Dharma ๑۩۞۩๑ ཨ ཨ ཨ ๑۩۞۩๑
I was born to young lady at the hour of the horse , that is around noon, actually 20 minutes past noon , at the hospital of Poetovio city at the river Drava . Slovenia was at that time part of socialist Yugoslavia and now is »independent« country part of European union . Growing up with my grandparrents Valentin and Kunigunda I was surrounded by pleasant evenings while we were singing folk songs and Catholic church music .
My grandfather was gifted composer and collector of ethnolical musical heritage ; local community is organising yearly artistic event in December , to commemorate the works of my grandfather. He was such a peace loving man . My grandparrents were very harmonious couple , grandmother was seven years older , very dilligent and they never quarreled .
My memories about them are beautiful !
๑۩۞۩๑ ཨ ཨ ཨ ๑۩۞۩๑ First steps :
I remember my first steps in May , in the garden with blossoming Paeonia when I was only nine months old . When I learned to speak I could not say my name and I called myself »Eka« . I beleive that Dzogchen protectress Ekajati was always at my side . When starting to read I was fascinated by fairy tales of Andersen telling about small little girl who dwelled on the leaf of the water lily . This was my first contact with the idea that someone can be so light to dwell on the lotus …

At that time children of »our  generation« did not have any toys to play with …no computers, smart phones , play stations … So we build designs of houses on the meadow , collecting leaves of water plants . Many of us were hungry through the day and  in late summer we went to cross the river Drava to gather some fruits on the other side of the river . I often helped my grandparrents to work in the field : one very hot summer day I was with them on the field and get unconscious . They didn*t know what to do and my grandmother carried me for more thirty minutes to get home . I was stiff like a wood …
On another very hot summer day I gathered some cucumbers in the garden , because nobody really cooked in the house while my grandparrents were working in the field . Cooking was done mostly on Sundays by my two remarkable auths who lived in the house next door . Because I didn*t pilled the cucumbers I was poisoned by that food . When I was already very weak my mother was driving me with the bycicle to the hospital . I was in that hospital for 14 days and get infussion for ten days before I recovered ! Buddhas and Bodhisattvas must really protected me in those years otherwise I would not have survived . Many children who were born in Tibet occupied by communists from China must have suffered in similar ways or much more then we in socialist Yugoslavia !

Visiting primary school at the municipality of Hajdina  , NE part of Slovenia, I learned without difficulties . I had some difficulties in 1st grade because my mother was always nervous and bullying me when I didn*t know how to write the number 3 . I suffered a lot in firts grade .

When walking from the school which was some 3 km away, in very cold winter , I and my friend went down to the frosen pond . I wanted to pick up something that was lying on the ice ; the ice broke and I fell into very cold pond , almost drowing …Again Buddhas and Bodhisattvas took care of my life ! When coming home with frosen clothing my relatives didn*t care much . After my brother was born , I became very unimportant , because patriarchal families mostly take care only for male offspring considering daughters less valuable … 

Peace and Stillness 2

From 2nd to 7th grade I was more happy and learned without difficulties , although I was really not interested in what was taught in the socialist school . In 7th grade one very frustrated communist teacher was appointed to lead our class. And she even taught math ! She didn*t like me at all ! (3) My father lost the job because he didn*t wish to join communist party and went to work in Germany , like so many in those years . My mother followed him few years later . Children of outside the country working parrents couldn*t get any financil support from the state . Children of communits party members obtained many privileges , so I feel very sympatetic with Tibetans in occupied Tibet .

My parrents insisted that I study in difficult medical school in Maribor city , but I wanted to go to gymnasium and later study psychology . Without financial support I was limited to study at the medical school in Maribor city for four years . I finished that school with excellent notes . I must say that we students were greately taken advantage all four years of study : we had to do »practical work« in different departments of the hospital, doing the most dirthy work without any payment . We had to appear at the hospital at 6 am ! and worked there like »slaves« for few hours . Then we went to the school : our »programme« was mostly finished in the late afternoon . Then I had to drive back home for 45 minutes with the bus . So I was away from 5 am till 6 pm . One can imagine how exhausted we were , without proper food , dehidrated and tired ! I sincerely hope that medical schools are not taking advantage of students in the same way today ! It would be really a shame (Ministry fo education ) .

Some personel from the surgery in Maribor hospital selected me to go to internship for one year in Switzerland : but Swiss people held the referendum and rejected »import« of foreign workers and students . Because of this I was too late to apply for further medical studies in Ljubljana and had to work for almost one year in the nearby hospital of Poetovio city where I was born . During that months I learned about misery of allopatic medical system : I had to work also during the night shifts when patients died regularly . Much suffering in the hospital at that time ; hospital was not yet renovated , looked like an middle age building ; medical stuff arrogant and competitive . Yet I always tried to be very friendly with patients like all empaths do . Working in allopatic medical system is abolutely not good for empaths . Leaving the hospital work and proceeding on my spiritual path . ..
✿ღ ✿⊱╮♫♪☻ Rock generation :
Being a rebell like so many of »my generation« we listened  rock music  and later some punk groups like Pankrti with Pero Lovšin and others who wrote rebellious songs ; not like nowdays youth dressed in punk or rock atire just for fashion and wasting time … I also wrote articles about culture and send them to different magazines . My brother who is six years younger went with me to Queen concert in Ljubljana Tivoli hall .

Tara Rinpoche at 16th Atiyoga retreat

Many decades later I travelled many times to Cres island meditation retreat of Dzogchen Ati Yoga . Jadrolinia car ferry Valbinska – Merag passes near the Goli otok = Barren island in the bay of Kvarner near Rijeka city . . We can see this island where many intellectuals were sent to this prison island . Prison island operated till 1981 when marshal Tito died and many were crying like they lost their own life ! Collective dellussion … This were dangerous times indeed .
Ignorance and denial were collective karma of people in SFRJ = Socialistic Federal Republic Yugoslavia . There was no free media and no free press (4) I beleive that majority of people who were not communist party  members lived in constant fear and paranoia. Mashall Tito reigned with iron hand and motto in Serbian language  : »Neprijatelj je svuda » Enemy is everywhere ! All state was more or less open prison . No wonder that my favorite LP at that time was Johnny Cash : Live concert at Quentin prison in California . I bought it with savings in one of the stores in Maribor city which was lucky enough to be able to import LP*s from USA . Nowdays we can see impressive biographical movie of Johnny Cash : Walk the line …

✿ღ ✿⊱╮♫♪☻ Journey abroad :
After I left the job at allopatic medicine establishment  I went to journey to Munich city in Bavaria for a rock concert of Ramones group . I liked this city a lot because of regular summer stay with my parrents during school vacations . I esp. liked Botanical garden , Nymphenburg castle, English garden and many beautiful monuments in the city at Odeonsplatz etc .  Already at that time someone who migrated to Munich from East Germany had the Tibetan book of the dead . I remember this because he worshiped this book like kinda new age gospel . Probably they didn*t understand much about Tibetan book of the dead but they respected it – which is good .

meditation in Alps 2

✿ღ ✿⊱╮♫♪☻ Solitary retreats in Alps :

During high school and later at the Pedagogical academy -where I studied German language/literature & Slovene language/literature I made regular hiking trips to Alps , sometimes with catholic church group and sometimes alone . One night I slept at the peak of Jalovec mountain (Elevation: 2,645 m)… next morning I went down to Tamar valley .


Decades later Khenpo Choga Rinpoche gave impressive teaching based on Longchen Nyingthig lineage at Tamar valley of Julian Alps . ….With church group we were reading Hermann Hesse book : Siddharta and meditated during our mountain trips . Catholic priest was very open to spirituality . He had good spiritual influence on all of us during those years , teaching us autogenic training and other techniques .Later he was removed from that position at Catholic church .

✿ღ ✿⊱╮♫♪☻ In search for Buddhist Dharma …
Around 1979 there was no internet, not much available Buddhist literature in socialist Yugoslavia , not even in translations . But I borrowed the book by C.G. Jung : Man and his symbols from Mangala Konchok Norbu . This impressive book has many Buddhist  symbols like mandalas and Wisdom deities . They made great imprint on my consciousness , because I really studied the book many times and doing dream diary according to Man and his symbols.  I also studied by myself in details about different world religions and didn*t felt much connections with catholicism any more . I studied about Heidegger philosophy and other phylosophical systems ;  professor at the academy who taught philosophy said I should further study philosophy . I was like solitary traveller in the dessert , searching for pure water of Buddhist Dharma . Few esotheric groups promissed that they have insights into Eastern religions , so Mangala Konchok Norbu and I joined them in search for Buddhist Dharma . When we found out that they don*t have Buddhist knowledge, we left .
Student radio station from Ljubljana sometimes played Buddhist ritual music , like impressive recordings from Kagyu monastery (Mahakala puja, Invocation of Padmasambhava ) . Mangala recorded  it on tape , although many of us didn*t really know anything what is beeing played . But it had great imprint on our consciousness . Its was like deja vu experience ! 


✿ღ ✿⊱╮♫♪☻ Buddhism in translations :
There was good Serbian publishing group Grafos from Belgrade , publishing serbian translations of some important Buddhist  works : The life of Milarepa, Mahamudra , Divine madman – the life of Drukpa Kunley and few others . We immediately bought all these translations and studied them thoroughly . Not only reading , but studying with devotion and trying to understand all . This was around 1983-88 . It was time when one can still not easily import Buddhist books in English .

✿ღ ✿⊱╮♫♪☻ Journey along Adriatic sea side 
was travelled  on motorbike , tent and sleeping bags . Mangala was driving black Suzuki and later Honda CBX – we travelled from Koper /Capodistria (Slovenia) in the North through cities of Rijeka, Zadar. Šibenik , Dubrovnik (Croatia) and Budva in Montenegro . We came close to Albanian border and left some 900 km behind, returning back to the North via beautiful Plitvice lakes/waterfalls .

✿ღ ✿⊱╮♫♪☻ Exchanging esotheric literature and items for Nyingma school of Tibetan Buddhism in Munich store :
We were regulat guests at that shop in Schwabing district of Munich and could exchange and got marveluous work by HH Dudjom Rinpoche Vol. I & II. which was just published at that time . Very expensive hard bound Dharma books  . (5) We also exchanged our esotheric books for the Vajra & Bell and the Crystal. We were both very happy with this exchange , because we could really not afford to buy them . …Munich at that time was the meeting point of different artists and truth seekers gathered at Schwabing area . I later learned that Shifu Ching Hai from Vietnam was married in those years in Munich and was visiting Schwabing Asia shops , book stores , Indian restaurants … more or less it was like European Kathmandu (6). There was Schwabing , Tuerkenstrasse with many Asian shops . I bought Tibetan shoes made of green & red cloths and was wearing them . Although at that time I didn*t know these were traditional Tibetan shoes , but I felt very connected with them and very comfortable with them…


(Ayu Khadro Dorje Paldron 1839-1953 was wearing such shoes on her very long travells and meditation retreats accross Tibet and Nepal) .
Munich was completely different from Yugoslavia . Later I went  to memorial concert of Bob Dylan and Joan Baez at Nuernberg stadium . It was open air concert …Not to imagine that few decades before Hitler had fanatical speeches at that same stadium !
Mangala liked rock music a lot , so we went to Munich concert of ZZ Top . Mangala was  vegetarian from the age of 18 and he inspired me to become vegetarian and later vegan . He also inspired me in practicing yoga . Many years I practiced “Suria  namaskar” Salutation to the sun every day . Renting old villa at Potrčeva St . in Poetovio city we began to translate Buddhist literature into Slovene language . We learned how important it is  to have Buddhist translations . At the same time we learned English . 

Budizem V Sloveniji II

Buddhism in Slovenia,EU; cover photo for CD-ROM, Buddha Dharma, 2008

Our first translation was »Human approach to world peace« by HH the Dalai Lama (7).
The owner of the villa was actually undercover agent of Yugoslavian secret service (Udba) , he was Slovene living in Belgrade city in  Serbia. He came few times secretly at 4 am and wanted to inspect our temple room . That villa is cultural heritage of general Maister and he was very annoyed seeing that we replaced portrait of general Maister with Buddhist  photo. As secret service agent of Udba he also didn*t like our Buddhist translation : Human approach to world peace . So we have to move away .
✿ღ ✿⊱╮♫♪☻ Journey to Switzerland
During our stay at the villa in Poetovio city we travelled with rent a car to Italy and visited Venice . It was December 1987 and we proceded to Zurich and found Tibet Institute in Rikon near Zurich .


This was our first visit to a Buddhist temple . Lama Sherab Amipa gave us meditation instructions in his room of the institute . We also received many Buddhist books as a gift , among them Women of wisdom , collected biographies by Tsultrim Allione . In that  book I found the address of Dzogchen commnuinity in Italy and invited Oliver Leick from Austria to give a talk about Dzogchen at that villa in Poetovio city . There was  a rainbow after the talk and Oliver Leick wrote about this auspicious  sign to Chogyal Namkhai Norbu who was at that time living at Formia near Naples . Chogyal Namkhai Norbu wrote me nice letter from Formia .
Some two years after my birth at Poetovio city in Yugoslavia Chogyal Namkhai Norbu came to live in neaby country of Italy , beeing invited by prof. Giuseppe Tucci .
✿ღ ✿⊱╮♫♪☻ Many journeys to Toscana, Italy :

Being inspired by Dzogchen approach I first travelled to Merigar Dzogchen community near Archidosso with students of Chogyal Namkhai Norbu in Austria .

With Namkhai Norbu Rinpoche in Merigar June 1989

Later we made many journeys with Mangala Konchok Norbu who also recorded all teachings that we attended . Travelling from Berlin, Koeln, (Germany) to Greece in the South , to Paris, London , Milano , Florence …and many other places . This part is described in my biography Stainless sky (8) .

✿ღ ✿⊱╮♫♪☻ Afterword :
Now in 21st Century A.D. there are Dharma books everywhere , there are open webcasts of many Buddhsit initiations , there are study groups on internet , facebook groups … When we travelled to Merigar Dzogchen community for teachings and retreats many times we have to travell for 800 km one way  on dangerous Italian roads .Few times I was driving white Diana car ! all way long … I remember that once at the Highway near Venice the front glass of another  car broke and we have to find replacement . Still we arrived at Merigar with broken front glass ..


Chogyal Namkhai Norbu then gave transmission of Odser Chenma for protection during travells .During cold winter retreats  at Merigar we stayed at the cabin in the wood below the gompa and sometimes in the big hall with the library . We cooked in crowdy kitchen . It was really not 5* retreat as many nowdays think . But it can*t be compared to austerities experienced by my other inspirational Guru Kyabje Chatral Rinpoche , as told by Rinpoches wife Kamala Rinpoche (9).



Homage to Ayu Khadro Dorje Paldron
….« Women of wisdom« book contains the biography of Ayu Khadro, as told and written down by Chogyal Namkhai Norbu . It was one of the first Buddhist  books in English sent to me from Tibet institute in Rikon near Zurich . https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wFXOkKPl0Q4&t=25s
In his dream Chogyal Namhai Norbu saw a Crystal stupa travelling in space toward the West . We both travelled toward the West , with serenity and silence … ๑۩۞۩๑ ཨ ཨ ཨ ๑۩۞۩๑


✿ღ ✿⊱╮♫♪☻ Reminder
for young generations to appreciate the Buddhist Dharma , to take it to your heart and to practice it with diligence , to stay away from bad company , alcohol, drugs , porn and all bad influences in contemporary world . Nowdays there are much more distractions that were not present in 20.st Century . And life is going on . Don*t waste your life .
As Bodhidharma said : Life and death are important , don*t suffer them in vain ! »Cross the Waves of the Ocean Mind to the serene Continent of the Triple Gems , since doing this is more meaningful than anything else .«

We translated some parts of Kathmandu into English and sent it to publisher in USA . Stevan was happy about this . But the american publisher rejected the text, sying its only a imagination ! In those years such brilliant works like Kathmandu were not accepted by amrican readers while nowdays many writters publish works of less impressive thoughhts and everyone appreacite them . I hope that Kathmandu will be some day translated into English and published online . One of those works which one must read and enjoys 

2.1. Meeting Buddha Vajrasattva  

Dharma essay by Michael Daniel Neary

Dear Friends of Buddha Dharma – OBFI

Her Eminence Tara Tulku Drimed Drolkhar Rinpoche has asked me to write an account of the Vajrasattva retreat I attended this last week with His Eminence Ayang Rinpoche, here in Rochester, New York.  I submit this article as an offering to the lotus feet of all my teachers.


  Ayang Rinpoche is the holder of the Phowa (transference of consciousness) lineage in both the Drikung Kagyu and the Nyingma traditions.  I knew from the moment I first offered him a katag (a ceremonial white silk scarf) and he placed his hands on my head and spoke a blessing, that I was truly in the presence of a living Bodhisattva.  Ayang Rinpoche is so kind to us, never thinking of his own needs, but always continually turning the dharma wheel of the yanas (vehicles)  in order to benefit countless sentient beings.  The USA headquarters of his organization, The Amitabha Foundation, is located here in Rochester, NY.  We had 94 people sign up for this retreat, about four times what we expected!  It was held here in Rochester at a local hotel.  People came from Mexico, Europe, and Canada to take teachings and empowerment from Ayang Rinpoche.

         The empowerment and teaching that Rinpoche gave us is called the Outer, Inner, Secret, and Innermost Secret Practice of Vajrasattva.  This refers to the categorization of the four tantric yogas according to the Sarma (new translation) schools.  However, let me be clear that this teaching comes from the Nyingma lineage, so in this fashion we would be practicing the equivalent of the upper three yanas in the Nyingma system.

        It was a most precious teaching, and even more precious was the fact that Rinpoche taught us in English, without using a translator, which doubled the time we actually received these deep and liberating teachings from him.  The empowerment itself began on a Thursday evening, and lasted for approximately four hours.  We were given so many detailed visualizations, and although I cannot reveal here publicly the nature of the physical aspects of the empowerments given, suffice it to say, I was myself surprised at the depth of the empowerment.  I have received numerous empowerments, but this took me to a level I always found intimidating before!  Before taking the empowerment, everyone present was required to take refuge vows and bodhisattva vows, because as H.E. Tara Tulku Rinpoche will tell anyone, and I stand behind her all the way on this, it is quite impossible to receive such high teachings as this without the proper vows set in place.  This is the correct sequence of events – Refuge vows (6 fold vows – three jewels and three roots), Bodhisattva vows, and Vajrayana empowerments. 



The first teaching was on the outer practice of Buddha Vajrasattva.  Before detailing this practice Rinpoche gave us teachings on the origin of Vajrasattva, and of his precious 100 syllable mantra, which embodies all the peaceful and wrathful Sambogakaya deities as found in the “Tibetan Book of the Dead.”   This included information on Samabtabhadra, the primordial Buddha according to the Nyingma school.  Tara Rinpoche is the best person to ask if you want more details on the sublime Adi Buddha Samantabhadra. 



The outer practice is called Kriya tantra, and consists of visualizing Buddha Vajrasattva on the crown of one’s head, pouring down nectar and cleansing one of all accumulated karma.  There is no better antidote for karma in this Kali-yuga age as the 100 syllable mantra of Vajrasattva!  We actually had hours of teaching and practice on this phase of Vajrasattva practice.  Ayang Rinpoche went into dramatic detail as to the visualizations used to combat all kinds of illnesses, as well as the cause of those afflictions.  We learned how to use this outer practice also to combat against negative beings that have attached themselves to us.

        The inner practice is called Charya Tantra, and in this practice, we begin with the outer practice, then we visualize Buddha Vajrasattva and the principal deities of the mandala radiating at different doors – chakra centers – in different colors and forms.  Charya tantra practices are very common in the Shingon school of Vajrayana in Japan.

         The Secret teaching and practice is what we would call Yoga Tantra.  It entails visualization of ourselves as Buddha Vajrasattva, and all beings as Vajrasattva, and all sounds the sound of his 100 syllable mantra.  This is what we call the creation stage of practice in Vajrayana practice.  I cannot go into details about this, not can I about the next stage, the Innermost Secret practice, which is what we would call AnnutaraYoga, or Highest Yoga Tantra practice.  The Innermost Secret teaching is a very detailed completion stage practice, where all visualizations are dissolved methodically into a certain Tibetan seed syllable, and then that syllable is dissolved into emptiness, allowing us to rest in the true nature of mind.  This is heavily related to Dzogchen/Atiyoga practice, the Great Completion.

          Following the empowerment and two days of teaching and practice, we went to our dharma center here in Rochester for a smoke offering and tsog.  The smoke offering is basically an offering to all local deities and beings to placate them and prevent them from obstructing our practice.  The tsog – meaning “accumulation”, is a feast where much food is offered to Buddha Vajrasattva (as this was a Vajrasattva tsog), and by mantra and visualization, the food is transformed in a blessed, nectar-like state.  The smoke offering and tsog took about 5 hours to complete.  There is countless merit generated from offering the tsog feast.



All friends of Buddha Dharma, listen carefully to me here.  The practice of Vajrasattva is applicable to any student on any level of practice.  It is necessary for purification in the early years of practice, and the practice of Vajrasattva may be done all the way to the Dzogchen/Atiyoga practices.  This is not a practice for the timid, but must be approached with absolute faith in Buddha Vajrasattva and in the Lama giving the empowerment and teachings.  Om Vajrasattva Hum!

I am humbled to be a friend, and to call you one of my perfect teachers, who has so profoundly touched me and given so much to me in my time of need, and helped me when I have unquenchable thirst. May you continue with long life and wellbeing, for years and years to come, Rinpoche please remain until Samsara ends.

Alive Dharma teaching, Dec 13, 2009



1.1.With 100-syllable mantra of Buddha Vajrasattva we begin this week Alive Dharma teaching, dear Friends  of Buddha Dharma. One of the ways to recite this sacred  mantra is taught in Visual Dharma connected with this teaching. 1oo-syllable mantra has outer, inner and secret meaning. Outer meaning is written along with the recitation. Contemplating inner and secret meaning of Vajrasattva Buddha´s mantra will help us to write down next teaching, entitled “Beyond ego-centric ways”. If you have insights into that meanings, please send them to be included. Wishing you successful recitation of Buddha Vajrasattva´s mantra together with  Creative comments, great rating, favouring and embeding this important Visual Dharma to multiply your merit/positive energy and wisdom. Together we pray and meditate for inner and outer peace . Dharma Art photo on WordPress and MySpace blogs shows 100-syllable mantra encircling the planet . Sarwa mangalam * All blessings

1.2. Buddhist studies bring  insights of H.E. Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche – why it is important to translate the Words of the Buddha into English (Buddhist heritage project).

*****Thank you for sharing your videos : ven. Mangala Konchok Norbu will answer your post during December , adding verses from The Art of Peace .

1.3.During past week there was remembrance of global human rights (Dec 10).Few writings of today´s teaching are dedicated to this important project. Congratulations to US President Barack Obama – Buddha Dharma´s friend  on youtube – for receiving Nobel Peace prize 2009. World without nuclear weapons will be more secure, compassionate and enlightened world….

1.4. Wisdom without borders brings your selected post and links to your websites & channels (from WordPress blog). Om Mani  Padme  Hum

1.5.Week of climate change conference (Copenhagen) ! Everyone can do something meaningful to reduce personal carbon footprint . The best way is to empower yourself and become vegetarian : raising animals for bloody food is responsible for 20% of climate warming. Everyone who eats meat is responsible for that . Wise citizens of Gent (Belgium) decided to avoid eating meat every Thursday. May all who read this message  follow these noble examples.

2.1.Women’s Rights

Swiss Ban Minarets: Is This About Women’s Rights or Wronging Religion?

by Alex DiBranco category: Global Feminism

Published December 02, 2009 @ 05:06PM PT

Reply : OM  MANI PADME HUM, dear Friends  at Change.org Religions must adapt themselves to new environments where they wish to progress and benefit beings ! Muslim community in Slovenia – European union- does not have demands that big minaret is incorporated in their new Muslim community center which they  wish to build in the capital city. We saw exact architect plan of it on the international conference, organised by Iscomet – International scientific conference – Minorities for Europe of Tommorow, financed by European commission and held in the city of Maribor, Oct 2006. This shows us clearly : in some countries Muslim community has adapted to new environments and in some countries Muslim community can not adapt themselves – or don´t want to adapt themselves- to new environment. Mostly this depend on the religious leader who is  responsible for the religuous community. Some are more progressive as others !  We certainly don´t want to see religious communities living in geto like environments, discriminating women, forcing them in marriages or even killing them if the don´t obey ! Such cases are well documented in Germany and described  in books.  To come out of the traditional Muslim  religious laws (Sharia) is certainly difficult for conservative Muslims;  conservative Christians , conservative Hindus or conservative Buddhists have the same problems with their so called patriarchal religious  laws .  To say European institutions don´t promote religious diversity, is basically wrong . Religious diversity is well promoted in legislatures of different countries .In Slovenia we have advanced law about Religious freedom, accepted by the parlament – with great difficulties and with years of previous discussions. This religuious freedom must only be put into practice.  In practical life we observe that Europeans  are not well educated about different religions, not educated from unbiased point of view, because school education don´t offer enough programmes with education about different religions. There is also not enough interest to improve general ignorance about this subject in school curricullums. Because of general ignorance about different religions- mass media report in provocative and unbiased ways, to attract readers. This is also question of journalist ethic !

I hope that this portrait give realistic and optimistic insights how world religions (Christianity, Judaism, Hinduism, Buddhism and others) must adapt themselves to new situations of 3rd millenium. Adaptation does not mean indoctrination or integration with loosing the essence of religions, which is WISDOM and COMPASSION, based on deep Faith, either in the God, Buddha … Religious extremists don´t have Wisdom and Compassion, they have violence and aggression in their minds and actions, hate speech toward others because of religuous intolerance, racism and fear .

Council of Europe (Strassbourg)  created international convention against internet crime already in 2001 !This convention is prohibiting hate speech based on racism or religious intolerance, when it is pointed at concrete persons . Respectful and compassionate dialogue is wellcome.  With this in mind there can be a lot of creative, compassionate exchange of ideas : HOW TO DEVELOP  RELIGIONS OF THIS WORLD TO BENEFIT BEINGS, to make them peaceful, wise and compassionate toward themselves and toward others.

Those who realize this become the children of Buddha; they keep His Dharma, honor His teachings and pass them on to posterity. Nothing can be more miraculous than the power of Buddha.

4.1. Translating the Words of the Buddha

Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche Gives Urgent Call To Translate Entire Buddhist Canon To English

Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche at the conference for Buddhist translator in Bir , India: March 2009

Rinpoché said that, among the Buddhist culture, the Kangyur is widely used as a “merit-making object”: monasteries will buy a copy only for it to be stacked in the shelves. “If offerings are made, the text will be read out loud, but little effort will be invested in understanding the meaning of each word.”

“While paying homage to the Word of the Buddha is a powerfully meritorious spiritual act, the Tibetan habit of using the Kangyur solely for this purpose is neither to be admired nor emulated: in fact, it’s a big mistake.”

Rinpoché added: “Every religion has an original holy book – for Christians, it’s the Bible, and for Moslems it’s the Koran. For Buddhists, our root holy books are the Sutras and they are of vital importance, because what Buddha taught us must always be the final word on any given subject, not what we find in the Shastras (ancient Hindu commentaries on Buddhism) – and definitely not what’s to be found in the Tibetan commentaries.”

Rinpoche said that Buddhist cultures today preserved and propagated the work of their own lamas, and have forgotten the Buddha’s Sutras. Such cultures often promoted the teachings of their own teachers far more than those of the Buddha, he said, – “and I have no trouble understanding why Tibetan Buddhism is sometimes described as “Lamaism”.

Very wise and objective article indeed. We appreciate it´s unbiased approach, well known from the teachings of Dzogsar Khyentse Rinpoche whom we met in March 1994 . We are esp. looking for the authentic translations of Eighteen Atiyoga Dzogchen tantras into English, beginning with the Penetration of Sound root tantra. . These precious Tantras are true Heritage of mankind and must be traslated into English soon. The problem is that there are very few translators with true contemplative experiences who could translate them in authentic, non-intellectual way. Tibetan lamas also consider them so secret, that almost nobody of us (so called Westerners) has enough merit to understand them. When everyone will understand that in the Buddha All-encompassing wisdom there are no Easterners or Westerners, there will be much more compassion and right effort to benefit beings by translating the Words of the Buddha .As Guru Rinpoche prophecised : There will be perverted practitioners who will treat the dharma as merchandise. At that time all of you who obey my Words do not neglect ten Dharmic activities…” (From Guru Padmasambhava´s Jewel spike Testament). Copying Buddhist scriptures (and it´s translations) for free distribution – not selling them – is first Dharmic/enlightened activity which must be practiced and encouraged.
In this sense we all wish swift fulfillment of this important project :
Together we recite the Verses to the Eight Auspicious ones (by Mipham Rinpoche) for the accomplishment of these noble aims who will certainly benefit many beings.
May dharmic activities of Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche meet with great success*****

Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche wrote :

“As followers of Shakyamuni Buddha, I think the best thing that we can do is what we in Tibetan call dzin-kyong, to protect, uphold, and keep the teaching alive. That’s our job. And not only one or two teachings of the Buddha, but every one of them, every single one.”

Source: Khyentse Foundation: December 2009 Communiqué

Note: We rejoice that also other Buddhist masters and practicing Buddhists think about protecting, upholding and keeping the teachings alive. The best way to do this is to serve the teachings of Budddhas by promoting/practicing ten enlightened activities as advised by Buddha Padmasambhava. May this noble examples inspire every practicing Buddhist to accumulate merit and wisdom by practicing ten dharmic activities, not selling the dharma !

4.2. Questions & answers :

nutier France

Dear venerable Sir , please enjoy my question , thank you .
Yama heaven , yama devas live in the air , free of all difficulties .
Q.119 – What is the meaning of yama devas ?
Yama heaven is one of heavens in the desire realm (Sanskrit: Kamadhatu) , the heaven of constant joy, located above the heaven of 33. …The life span of beings in this realm (yama devas) is 2000 years, each day of which corresponds to 200 years in human world.

Q.120 – Is yama raja ( king of yama ) the same as yama devas ?
Yama raja (yama king) – lord of Yama heaven – is regarded as the judge of the dead and the ruler of hells.

Q.121 – If they are free of all difficulties , are they also free of all bad deeds ?
May peace and happiness be upon you always ! nutier

Heavenly beings are not free of all difficulties. When they die, they experience  immense suffering which they can not change. When their merit is exhausted ,  they are reborn in lower realms of samsara. These beings still transmigrate, although their life-span is very long – from human perspective.

Note: Three questions about  Tushita heaven will be answered next time.
