Wisdom studies and Teachings

III.INTERNATIONAL INSTITUTE FOR CONTEMPORARY BUDDHIST STUDIES

3.1.buddhiststudies@berkeley.edu

Dear Friends of the Center for Buddhist Studies,

We hope you will join us on Thursday (April 29) for a talk on “The Bamiyan

Stupas” by Professor Zamaryalai Tarzi.  This event will be held at 5 p.m.

in the IEAS conference room (2223 Fulton Street, 6th floor). An abstract

and speaker’s bio are included below.  Note that the talk with be given in

French with simultaneous English translation by Nadia Tarzi.

3.2.Questions and answers :

nutier France

Dear venerable  , please enjoy my questions , thank you ;

In Buddism , atta and anatta are dharmas that are paired off together until the ultimate limit of the mundane . According to the anatta doctrine , there is no permanent conscious substance that experiences these thoughts ; conscious thoughts simply arise and perish with no ” thinker ” behind them . This immaculate Buddhic self ( atman:soul ) is in no way to be construed as a mundane , impermanent ( ego ) of which it is the diametrical opposite .

may peace , happiness and wisdom be upon you always !

Q.179 – does no-self means such as unconsciousness , and self as consciousness ?

Dear Frined of Buddha Dharma, your above reasoning about anatta (no-self) is not correct. Where did you hear about immaculate Buddhisc self (atman: soul) ?! Unconsciousness , subconsciousness , collective unconscious and similar terms are used in deep psychology of Carl Gustav Jung. In Buddhism we teach about right understanding, awareness , mindfulness, concentration etc. which are parts of the Noble Eightfold path , as explained in the Visual Dharma Wheel.

http://www.youtube.com/user/openbuddhistforum#p/u/0/OSF1RcF2PbI

Q.180 – if there is no permanent conscious substance , do consciousness and unconsciousness consider as no-self ? Consciousness and uncounsciousness are not no-self (anatta). They are skanda or aggregate .

Q.181 – Are body-form , sensation , perception , formation mental and consciousness also impermanent and no-self ?

may peace , happiness and wisdom be upon you always !

Five skandas or aggregates of a being are impermanent.

“Learn and forget “ is spiritual advice of master Morihei Ueshiba. If you lear / study in proper manner, you have direct insights and don´t accumulate conceptual ignorance. So: develop faith and devotion toward the Buddhas, pray and meditate every day.

“The origin of suffering to be in craving and ignorance , the feedback loop of conditioning and causation that leads to suffering in current and future lives . There are many kind of proceedings : it begins with ignorance and proceeds to sickness , old age , and death ; it begins with attachment and proceeds to birth ; it begins with birth and proceeds back to ignorance ; it begins with attachment and proceeds to ignorance . May peace and happiness be always upon you !”

Q.182 – As attachment proceeds the birth and ignorance , is it the first cause of samsara’s existence ?

You already asked so many questions about samsara, dear Friend . Why not to direct yourself toward Pure Land of Buddha Amitabha, praying with Faith and Devotion ?! The cause of samsara is ignorance or unawareness.

Q.183 – When attachment has disappeared , has samsara also disappeared ?

Attachment and aversion are two sides of ignorance or unawareness. Loving kindness toward sentient beings is not attachment. Don´t think that Buddhist practitioners are like cold stones, without any loving energy and compassion. Samsara dissapears when ignorance is purified into stainless Wisdom awareness. This can happen for a moment, but samsara can still re-occur in your mind. You tend to see samsara only as something outside. In meditation you learn that samsara is both : inside and outside.  Learn to pray to Buddha Amitabha , reciting His name with concentration and devotion. Then samsara will be purified.

http://www.youtube.com/user/openbuddhistforum#p/search/2/ozKDpz_G3JQ

Q.184 – If humans can simply remove their attachment , there will be no newcomer on earth . Can the 31 planes of existence disappear too ?

Human realm is only one of those realms. Every sentient being in the six realms of existence has individual causes , conditions and effects (karma). May all sentient beings safely reach the Pure land of infinite Light and Life. Homage to Amitabha Buddha.

WISDOM WITHOUT BORDERS

IV.WISDOM WITHOUT BORDERS :

4.1. ART “According to the Buddhist point of view, an artist`s intention is compassion. Artists create in order to make a link with other beings through their inner pure lements, and to transform their outer ordinary gross elements into enlightenment.”  Kyabje Thinley Norbu Rinpoche : Magic Dance- the Display of the self-nature of the five wisdom Dakinis, Jewel House Publ. House, New York,1985

4.2 President of Slovenia, dr. Danilo Türk, about the significance of environmental care for the survival of humanity.

V. INTERFAITH   DIALOGUES

5.1. Mother´s Day

inousch Netherlands

My dear Buddha Dharma, for it’s Mother’s Day tomorrow,
I like to share some strong beautiful
words by Mother Teresa with you:
”I am a little pencil in the hand of a writing God who is sending a love letter to the world.
And everytime you smile at someone, it is an action of love, a gift to that person, a beautiful thing.
In this life we cannot do great things. We can only do small things with great love.
Kind words can be short and easy to speak, but their echoes are truly endless…”
( Words by Mother Teresa)
Hugs and love for you dear friend, Ine

5.2. Answers :

theFriendlyHughes has made a comment on AMITABHA- BUDDHA OF INFINITE LIGHT:

Beautiful music, and (interestingly psychedelic imagery). Isn’t Pure Land Buddhism exactly like Christianity? Just believe in something specific and pray and worship him and you’ll be happy when you die?


I have great respect for the Buddha’s teachings – which is why Pure Land concerns me, it seems to go against them. The Buddha taught that there is no external saviour. Sorry, not trying to start a religious debate! I liked the video. 🙂

openbuddhistforum (uploader) @theFriendlyHughes Thank you for interesting thoughts. We don´t see any psychedelic imaginary in this Visual Dharma. This must be your subjective viewing . Will include your words in next alive Dharma teaching, May 9 (Interfaith dialogues), adding more explanation. Feel free to join shining circle of Buddha Dharma Friends – in WISDOM WITHOUT BORDERS 🙂

To have great respect toward Lord Buddha´s holy Teachings means to study and know Buddha´s  Teachings.  Some who know little bit about Theravada Teachings sometimes try to limit Buddha´s omniscent Dharmas only to Theravada traditions. Shakyamuni Buddha transmitted countless Dharmas/Teachings according to mental capacities of the listeners. For example He also transmitted the Kalachakra Teachings . Pure land Buddhism is not like Christianity, because Pure land Buddhism is based on the Four seals of authentic Buddhist Teachings : impermanence, suffering,  no-self and nirvana. This understanding is found only in Buddhist Dharma. There are many levels of Christianity also – ritualistic, contemplative, gnostic…Years ago we had interesting Dialogue between Christianity and Buddhism (see Visual Dharma : Dialogues & Ars sacra for world peace). There is nothing wrong with “just believe in something specific and pray and worship him and you will be happy when you die “. It is much better to have faith as not to have any faith and to be materialist and nihilist ! Faith connected with virtuous way of life is very precious in all spiritual traditions. In Buddhism we also don´t neglect Faith. Pure land Buddhists do´nt only see the Amitabha Buddha as “external saviour”. Even if some see Him as “external saviour” – with Faith in Amitabha Buddha they will be reborn in Pure land of Buddha Amitabha , Pure land of infinite Light and Live. Such fortunate beings finished their samsaric existence, because Pure land of Amitabha Buddha is not part of samsara. Buddha Shakyamuni said : “For those who don´t have faith it is like they try to raise a plant from a burned seed…” Faith in the Buddhas , their Teachings and those who transmit pure Dharma  is therefore very important. It is part of the Triple Refuge of Buddhism. See Visual Dharma : About Buddhism http://www.youtube.com/user/openbuddhistforum#p/search/5/k2a0iFjgBJc

In all Visual Dharmas we publish extensive teachings with selected bibliographies which should be studied by all who wish to know more about Buddhist Dharmas .

May all beings safely reach Buddha Amitabha Pure land of Infinite Light and Life.

May there be harmony between all spiritual Paths and religions, based on virtuous way of life which begins with avoid killing of animals and eating meat, praying, meditating, doing good deeds…

II.BUDDHIST SPIRITUAL * RELIGIOUS ACTIVITIES

2.1 DAY OF THE PLANET EARTH
This VISUAL DHARMA is published to benefit all beings vast as the sky. To EMBED & SPONSOR Visual Dharmas means to perform 1st enlightened Activity. Each Apr. 22 people of this Earth commemorate international Day of Earth. We teach from the Blood stream sermon of Chan Buddhist patriarch BODHIDHARMA. The aim is to „go beyond language, go beyond thought” : the essence of the Mind to Mind transmission in Chan & Atiyoga/Dzogchen. Symbolic transmission happens with the use of symbols contained in this Visual Dharma. Oral transmission are the Dharma Words themselves. Some Buddhist scholars might disagree with the above statement because they lack direct experiences. But there are historical evidences that Tibetan masters of Atiyoga*Dzogchen — like Sang-gye Ye-shey were also practitioners of Chan Buddhism and there was no contradiction. Sang-gye Ye-shey was one of 25 most important disciples of Buddha Padmasambhava . He wrote the Dzogchen text Samten Migdron — Contemplation Light of the eyes (1). Chinese culture-Tibetan culture-American culture- Japanese culture… True Buddhist or spiritual practitioner  is not attached to nationality, because every nationality is relative truth. Appreciating relative truth we must teach the Dharma from the view of absolute Truth (skt. shunyata- luminous voidness –  awareness). True Buddhist understands practical aspect of Lord Buddhas Teachings : Go beyond language, go beyond thought. For those of us who practice and teach from the Dimension of the Self-liberated Sound of Dharmata (tib. Chönyid kyi rangdra) this is crystal clear. When we die all thoughts naturally dissolve. As Guru Rinpoche taught : “When I leave this compounded body of flesh and blood I know it to be transitory illusion.”

Debates which are still widely practiced in Buddhist monasteries in India are degeneration ! One can see on many films and daily life how such neurotic& loud debates create neurotic, narrow minded & egomaniac people. To rejuvenate Buddhism in modern times such debates must be omitted from daily life in all Buddhist monasteries. Monks & nuns should follow noble examples of Chan/zen practitioners all over the world who integrated cleaning, washing dishes, gardening etc. in their daily meditations (= karma yoga) ! Cleaning environment, planting trees and sustainable development, done with mindfulness are more Buddhist practices as debates with tensions. The aim of meditations is to have less & less thoughts, not to have more tensions and thoughts. If such debators also eat meat, drink alcohol & sell the Dharma there is danger that present & future generations will consider this as true Buddhist practices. Unethical person skilled in rethoric is dangerous to himself & others. He can lie, cheat (not teach !) more skillfuly. Lord Buddha thought that keeping Buddhist ethical precepts is the foundation of His Noble eightfold Path . At OBF International we encourage respectful DIALOGUE between Chan/zen, Vajrayana/Atiyoga and all other Buddhist schools. As it is said in the Manjusri-nama-samgiti : As he delivered three vehicles, he remains on the fruit of one vehicle. (2) It can not be that Buddhists lead interfaith dialogues with Christianity but don`t have enough dialogue between themselves. Red Pine, the translator of Master  Bodhidharma´s work into English, said : Look for one thing that Bodhidharma brought to China : look for the print of the mind. (3)
This Visual Dharma brings the print of the Mind (Mind seal of the Buddhas) to entire planet Earth. May all beings benefit.

i. PRACTICAL INSTRUCTIONS : DO SOMETHING GOOD for yourself & the planet :
1. Become a vegetarian , avoid any intoxicants. Use high quality veg. food & Wholesome Buddhist medicine.
2.Practice Buddhist meditations & prayers at OBFI (Collective practices every Sunday). 3. Perform Englihtened activities: embed & sponsor Visual Dharmas, sponsor Buddhist children in Nepal.
4.Clean & beautify environment. Use energy saving lamps. Drive car which spends less gasoline.

THIS WEEK on CHANGE.ORG

Earth Day Anniversary

Hey Her Eminence Lama Tara Tulku,

This week marks the celebration of the 40th anniversary of Earth Day, created in 1970 to raise awareness about unchecked environmental problems like air and water pollution.The unexpected and overwhelming public support for the first Earth Day, which inspired 20 million people to demonstrate in rallies across the country, helped drive Congress to pass major regulations that remain the backbone of U.S. environmental law. Four decades later, we need another groundswell of support to push lawmakers to address the biggest challenge now facing the earth: climate change.

Thank you for signing the petition “Tell Congress: Clean Energy Legislation Can Put America Back to Work”

III.BUDDHIST WHOLESOME MEDICINE

3.1. Health and Wellness Consulting : High quality Vegetarian/Vegan diet

For spiritual practitioners , for Buddhist  practitioners and all who wish to improve or sustain their health, vegan/vegetarian high quality diet is very important. Besides sharing spiritual Teachings we also wish to give you new recipe from our Wholesome Medicine Programme.

* Siberian Ginseng  with medicinal herbs :

If you are fortunate enough, you will be able to collect these medicinal herbs fresh in your garden or around it in the Spring :

Acanthopanax _ Siberian Ginseng sprouts , hops sprouts (Latin : Hummulus lupulus) and white nettle plants (Lamium album). After collecting clean them in the water and cut them in smaller peaces. Cook these medicinal plants in 0,5 dcl water for 30 minutes. Serve the vegan soup with organic soy sauce and pieces of tofu , seitan or brown rice.

Medicinal properties : Siberian Ginseng sprouts are precious, aromatic  &  strong adaptogen , immunotonic ,  whole body tonic and aphrodisiac.  Well known in TCM. Sprouts of hops are sedative . White nettle is excellent   tonic and sedative. Let vegetarian food be your medicine. As an ancient saying goes : You are what you eat !

To help you in search for freshly green Siberian Ginseng sprouts (almost impossible to obtain in shops and market places) we are raising few Siberian Ginseng bushes in our garden at Atiyoga Ling. They measure from 20 cm – 90 cm.

Siberian Ginseng is easy to grow . It can grow up to 3 m ! Whole bush has medicinal effects and can be applied in Vegan cooking (tea, soup, poridges etc).

For orders  and worldwide sending write to : BuddhaDharma.OBFInternational@gmail.com attn: Wholesome Medicine.

IV.INTERNATIONAL INSTITUTE FOR CONTEMPORARY BUDDHIST STUDIES                       4.1. Questions & answers :

nutier France

Dear venerable , please enjoy my questions , thank you .
Buddhism does not deny the existence of immaterial entities , and it distinguishes physical states from mental states . Thus , the conventional translation of anatta as no-soul can be confusing . If the word soul simply refers to an incorporeal component in living things that can continue after death , then Buddhism does not deny the existence of the soul .Instead , Buddhism denies the existence of a permanent entity that remains constant behind the changing corporeal and incorporeal components of a living being .
Q.176 – If Buddhism does not deny the existence of the soul , is the soul the same as the mind ?
Translation of Anatta as no-soul is truly not correct. Correct translation of Anatta is egolessness, as explained in Visual Dharma Wheel- path of Peace, happiness and Bliss. The soul is not the same as the mind or consciousness, which is one of the five skandas or aggregates of a human being.

Q.177 – If we have no-soul , how can we identify our mind ?
Mind can not be identified by another dualistic entity. Mind means awareness or to be aware, as explained by the Chan patriarch Bodhidharma, in this alive Dharma teaching. Study it well.

Q.178 – Are ghosts , entities , angels etc , still existing , according to non-self education ?

On relative level (relative truth) everything is existing . In absolute Truth all phenomena are display of five wisdom Lights of Dharmakaya. This brief explanation comes from the Vajrayana / Diamond way Buddhism. Archats who accomplish Theravada Teachings of the Enlightened Buddha Shakyamuni, accomplish no-self / egolessnes  or Anatta, related to

individual voidness. After this begins the Mahayana Path, where a Bodhisattva accomplish voidness of all phenomena. Then Vajrayana / Diamond Path of transforming negative emotions into five Wisdoms.

These Dharmas must be practically applied by all : Be veg. Go Green. Save the planet.

Use of creative media - Visual Dharma

V.WISDOM WITHOUT BORDERS

5.1. Wake-up sermon

“Buddhahood means awareness. Mortals whose minds are aware reach the Way of Enlightenment and are therefore called buddhas.” The sutras say, “ Those who free themselves from all appearances are called buddhas.” …Whoever hears and believes this Teachings embarks on the Great vehicle and leaves the three realms. “

Chan patriarch Bodhidharma- the Zen teaching of Bodhidharma, translated by Red Pine, North Point Press, New York, 1987, page 47

5.2. Wisdom from around the world

The Silent Prayer is an acknowledgement of All That Is.
In this prayer, I know that every prayer I have ever voiced is heard by Spirit, and that Spirit has given unto me all that I have asked for.
It is an acknowledgement that my soul is complete in the love and grace of God.
It is an acknowledgement of my total state of perfection and Is-ness.
All that I desire, all that I wish to co-create, is already within my reality.
I call this the Silent Prayer because I know that my Being is already fullfilled.
There is no need to ask for anything of Spirit, because it has already been given.
With all my love, Anna

CRYSTAL STUPA ღ⊙◎‿↗⁀❁ ཨ ཨ ཨ TRIBUTE TO AYU KHANDRO

HERITAGE OF MANKIND - TREASURE OF PURE DHARMA

HOMAGE TO VAJRAYOGINI,

TO WHITE ARYA TARA

AND TO DAKINI SIAMUKHA.

HOMAGE TO AYU KHANDRO.

Ayu Khandro
Tibetan
: ཨ་ཡུ་མཁའ་འགྲོ་
Wylie
: A-yu Mkha’-‘gro

I. Introduction:This Visual Dharma is created & published to benefit beings and to commemorate 57th anniversary of Ayu Khandro´s accomplishment of Rainbow Body beginning  on the Dakini day in the 1st month of miracles.

A rainbow body (Tibetan: Jalü or Jalus (Wylie ‘ja’ lus); Chinese: 虹光身 / 光蘊身;

the rainbow body is constituted by the Five Pure Lights.

All Visual Dharmas are empowered with the Sound*Light of Dharmata, providing Healing Art and Visual Therapy for the viewer. Study, Rate them 5*, share & embed them to your site for Blessing. Comment on them and favour them to increase your positive energy. Become part of the HERITAGE OF MANKIND.

II.Crystal Stupa: connecting symbol in this Visual Dharma is CRYSTAL STUPA as described in the dream by Chögyal Namkhai Norbu who wrote down Ayu Khandro´s life & liberation biography.

A stupa (from Sanskrit: m., स्तूप, stūpa, Pāli: थुप “thūpa”, literally meaning “heap”) is a mound-like structure containing Buddhist relics, once thought to be places of Buddhist worship, typically the remains of a Buddha or saint. In other Asian languages such monuments are called

    • chorten (Tibetan མཆོད་རྟེན༏ (Wylie: mchod rten), “dharma place/seat”)

    • chedi (Thai: เจดีย์, from the Pāli cetiya (चेतिय))

    • dāgaba (usually spelt “Dagoba”) (Sinhalese: ඩගොබ, from Sanskrit dhātu-garbha (दातुगर्भ) “relic-chamber” )

    • tope (Hindi: स्तूप, from the Sanskrit)

    • garbha (Sanskrit: गर्भ, meaning a storehouse or repository)


Words can not completely describe all spiritual qualities of accomplished masters like Ayu Khandro. For some she was emanation of Vajrayogini, for others emanation of White  Tara (Sanskrit: तारा, tārā).

❁‿↗⁀◎⊙ღ๑۩۞۩๑ღ⊙◎‿↗⁀❁ ཨ ཨ ཨ VAJRAYOGINI

In 1st part we see Tagdrol of the Vajra Song with Lineage masters of Nyingma Vajrayana Buddhism . At the end the Vajra appears with the Sound of Vajra. Liberation by remembrance. Turn your attention inside & discover primordial state.

Ayu Khandro´s Palden Tsawai Lama was Jamyang Khyentse Wangpo འཇམ་དབྱངས་མཁྱེན་བརྩེའི་

(1820-1892). We also see sacred image of White Tara, connected to hidden treasure of Jamyang Khyentse Wangpo, now at Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche´s monastery in Bir, India.

Terma teachings are ‘hidden teachings’  have been left by Padmasambhava (8th Century) and others for the benefit of future generations. Jamyang Khyentse Wangpo discovered Phagme Nyingthig (Tib. spelling: ‘chi med ‘phags ma’i snying thig, Innermost Essence teachings of the Immortal Bodhisattva [Arya Tārā]).

Her another Root Guru was Nyala Pema Dündul (1816-1872), also known as Terton Nyala Pema Duddul, was a teacher of Dzogchen and Tantric Buddhism in Eastern Tibet.

WISDOM DAKINI SIAMUKHA PROTECTION AMULET

As all tertöns / hidden treasure discoverers Ayu Khandro had  Mind-mandate transmission from Guru Padmasambhava. In this connection we see protection amulet of Wisdom dakini Siamukha. We focus on important periods in Ayu Khandro´s life: birth & young age, middle age with long pilgrimage and her very long meditation retreats in the dark.

Ayu Khandro performed the Yang-Ti (Tibetan), an advanced sadhana of the Dzogchen Upadesha in  the Dark Retreat. Sādhanā (Sanskrit साधना),

Her dharma brothers & sisters included Adzom Drukpa, Pema Yangkyi – her best friend on the pilgrimage. She accomplished Rainbow Body at the age of 74 while meditating in  the cave at sacred Mt. Kailash. For more than 10 years she was on pilgrimage with Togden Semnyid who was advanced Chödpa, Vajrakilaya and Dzogchen practitioner.

Chöd (Tibetan: གཅོདWylie: gcod (Tibetan: གཅོད་སྒྲུབ་ཐབས་ gcod sgrub thabs; Sanskrit: छेद साधना cheda-sādhana

They travelled with Togden Trulzhi who accomplished the Rainbow Body at the age of 83. In the youth Lhawang Gonpo taught her inner heat practice (Tummo) and living on air & mineral substances (Cud-len). Although this sublime Dharma practitioners did not have high status in Tibetan society of 19th and 20st Century, their accomplishment of Rainbow Body was supreme. They lived as yogis and yoginis, not in monasteries ! Being born on the Dakini day during the winter and beginning Tugdam contemplation on the Dakini day is very symbolic for the Woman of Wisdom. Crystal Stupa slowly disappearing in the sky toward the West also symbolizes Pure land of Buddha Amitabha. Five pure Lights of the Rainbow Body are represented by the Stupa. Ayu Khandro – Glorious Indestructible Diamond was  truly serving, upholding and protecting the teachings of Buddhas. May Her life & liberation story inspire you on your Path*Pilgrimage toward liberation and Enlightenment. May Her Blessings be present everywhere.

V. Notes

5.01 Nyingma  Vajrayana Atiyoga essence lineage in which Ayu Khandro practiced and taught the Dharma is described in Wikipedia :

Mañjushrīmītra (Tib. ‘jam dpal bshes gnyen)  classified all the Dzogchen teachings transmitted by his Guru  Prahevajra (Tib. Garab Dorje) into three series: Semde (Wylie: sems sde), Longde (Wylie: klong sde), and Mengagde.[1] Mañjushrīmītra’s student Shri simha re-edited the oral instruction class/cycle, and in this form the teaching was transmitted to Jñānasūtra and Vimalamitra. Vimalamitra tranmistted  the Mengagde teachings to Tibet in the 8th Century.”

Atiyoga*Dzogchen Lineage masters are presented in Visual Dharma: Tribute to Ayu Khandro.

5.02In Wikipedia there is an entry about Ayu Khandro. I corrected this entry little bit, simplifying the language and adding more facts.

“Ayu Khandro, formally Ayu Khandro Tsewang Dorje Paldrön (1839-1953) was a teacher of Dzogchen and Tantric Buddhism in East Tibet. She was a student of both Jamyang Khyentse Wangpo and Nyala Pema Dündul.By many, Ayu Khandro was  an emanation  (not incarnation) of Vajrayogini. She has spent many dozen years in dark retreat and also practiced and taught a tantric long-life practice and was an adept chödpa.

She  transmitted her knowledge and gave empowerments to Chogyal Namkhai Norbu Rinpoche in 1951.

In 1953 she accomplished the Rainbow Body, beginning on the Dakini day in Bumjur Dawa – month of miracles.

5.03 The best of all gifts is the Gift of Truth.“

WOMEN IN BUDDHISM ❧❤❧ EMPOWERMENT OF WOMEN

HERITAGE OF MANKIND

Visual Dharma 95 WOMEN IN BUDDHISM by H. E. Lama Tara Tulku Drimed Drolkhar Rinpoche (from Collected Work Vol. IV) is published to benefit all and to commemorate 100.International day of women (March 8, 2008). All Visual Dharmas are empowered with the Sound of Dharmata. We ask everyone to treat them with respect. To embed and to sponsor the preparation of Visual Dharmas brings great merit to the place and all who view them. It means to perform 1. Dharmic Activity as taught by the Buddhas (see The Gift of Truth).

According to our research Buddhist women are more often confronted with hate speech.

LEGAL ADVISE :  European convention on human rights, International convention about abolition of all forms of racial discrimination, International agreement on civil and political rights, Convention on cybernet crime with Additional protocol (adapted on 1.o7.2004). The Council of Europe (COE)  accepted the Recommendation 1805 regarding blasphemy, religious insult and hate speech against persons on ground of their religion.

„The Assembly reafirms that hate speech against persons, whatever on religious grounds or otherwise, should be penalised by the law in accordance with the General Policy Recomm. No.7 on national legislation to combat racism and racial discrimination produced by the EC against racism and intolerance. For speech to qualify as hate speech in this sense, it is necessary that it is directed against a person or a specific group of persons.” HUMAN RIGHTS INFORMATION BULLETIN No. 71 2007 COE Strasbourg  http://www.coe.int/human-rights

47 member states of the COE have legislation which is prohibiting hate speech toward religious people. According to our research most of the public is uneducated about such legislation and which speech is classified as hate speech ! Because of uneducation and unawareness hate speech is practiced in countries where there is no correct education about different religions . Buddhism is traditionaly present in Europe and America as well on other continents. Buddhists around the world are contributing to the development of human rights, gender equality and the state of law. Thus we are contributing toward more positive and spiritualy advanced world.

Slovenian translation is published on http://www.coe.si – Information & documentation center of the COE  at NUK was our partner in organising IV. Dialogue — symphosium about Religion and democracy at the Congress center in Ljubljana , spring 2000. Hate speech should be reported to  web watch — http://www.spletno-oko.si (for Slovenia) . Similar web watches are present in other states. Other useful internet addresses : http://www.coe.int/stopviolence Equality between women and men — Gender equality ; http://www.drustvo-dnk.si Association against violent communication sent us useful broshure : Violence! What can I do? http://www.stop-discrimination.info EU project For diversity-against discrimination; http://www.Iscomet.org   NGO with consulting status at the COE– booklet by dr. S. Devetak – Are you treated equaly regardless of your nationality or religion ? Tara Rinpoche actively partitipated at their EU conference in Oct.2006.  http://www.varuh-rs.si Newsletter of the ombudsman for human rights No.10 (Dec. 2006) gives many useful advices regarding the protection of human rights : Code of penalty art. 141 — violation of equality, art. 300 hate speech  etc.)  All cases of hate speech should be reported together with evidence ( copy from internet etc.) to the police or state attorney. According to the convention of UN all victims of criminal acts have the right to be treated with respect , to be notified about the case procedures, counceling, active collaboration in the process of decision making, they must be directed to appropriate services of help,they have the right of  physical security , privacy and compensation. Legal procedures should be without undue delay. Republic Slovenia is since many years member of the Council of Europe and since 3,5 years member of European union. The Constitution of Slovenia is advanced and democratic. New law on religious freedom is valid some year ago. In Febr. 08 we requested Slovenian government — president of the government  http://www.gov.si and the office for religious communities  http://www.uvs.gov.si to prepare consultation  about hate speech and related legislation- until the end of  6-months of Slovenian presidency in EU.

COE advised human rights training for all religious teachers. This research provides some aspects of such training for Buddhists worldwide.
