https://www.amazon.com/Jewel-Maker-Great-Tantra-Consequence/dp/1978085737 translated by Chris Wilkinson .
From the description : “ .”The Great Perfection, also known as the Atiyoga or Dzogchen (rDzogs chen), is a tradition of esoteric Buddhism that propounds instantaneous enlightenment and was first brought to Tibet in the Eighth Century of the Common Era. The Indian manuscripts of this tradition have been lost in time, and only the Tibetan translations remain. The original teachings of this tradition are contained in books called Tantras, and are generally divided into three categories: The Mind Section, the Space Section, and the Upadesha Instruction Section. The Upadesha Instruction section is devoted to the pointing out instructions or practical advice in the understanding and application of the Great Perfection. It is generally described as having seventeen root scriptures. The Jewel Maker here translated is considered to be the source for the other sixteen Tantras, which form the body of the seventeen works. As such, we may say that this Tantra is the core of the core teachings on the Upadesha instructions of the Great Perfection. This Tantra is also secret, and is said to be under the guardianship of dakinis. The Tantra itself proclaims the importance of keeping it, copying it and preserving it. This translation is part of an effort to preserve and maintain this ancient literature, in keeping with the directives written in the Tantra itself.”

Dear Readers at the Heritage of mankind ,
welcome to 182nd A-live Dharma teaching .
We will focus on one of the most important Buddhist sacred texts , the Root of all Dharmas .
I.INTERNATIONAL INSTITUTE FOR CONTEMPORARY BUDDHIST STUDIES
1.1. The Great Tantra on the Consequence of Sound
Translator Chris Wilkinson send me a copy of his English translation of Dra Thal Gyur tantra of Dzogchen Upadesha ,
published on October 2017 and available on Amazon .
The translator dedicated it to all teachers and students of Dzogchen .

The book has 299 pages .
Original of Dra Thal Gyur root tantra of Dzogchen Upadesha is in Sanskrit , entitled : Sabda Tadratra Maha Ratnakara Tantra Nama which was translated into Tibetan as : Rin po che ‘byung bar byed pa sgra thal ‘ gyur chen po’i rgyud ces bya ba . Christopher Wilkinson translated the title into English as : The Jewel Maker : the Great Tantra on the Consequence of Sound .
Rigpa wiki translates it as : Reverberation of Sound tantra
http://www.rigpawiki.org/index.php?title=Reverberation_of_Sound_Tantra
We translated it with Penetration of Sound :
❁‿ ↗⁀◎⊙ღ๑۩۞۩๑ღ⊙◎‿ ↗⁀❁ ATI YOGA ESSENCE LINEAGE –
This lineage : Chönyid kyi rangdra or Natural Sound of Dharmata has origin in Dra Thal Gyur root tantra of Dzogchen Upadesha . Master Vimalamitra is the only one who wrote commentary on Dra Thal Gyur tantra or Reverberation of Sound .Vimalamitras commentary is preserved at Khatok monastery in East Tibet . REVERBERATION OF SOUND is the root of all Buddhist Dharma . Reverberation of Sound (Dra Thal Gyur) is connected to 16 other Dzogchen Upadesha tantras . We need to see this display diametrical as a cicle , not horizontal . DRA THAL GYUR tantra in the centre and names of 16 other Upadesha tantras around .

“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. https://www.facebook.com/pages/Seventeen-Tantras-of-Ati-Yoga-Dzogchen-Upadesha/100283213391348
To maintain Mind transmission / Blessings of the Buddhas through the Natural Sound of Dharmata (Tib. Chönyid kyi rangdra) there are A-ti Yoga retreats at special places , supporting Contemplation / Samadhi.
๑۩۞۩๑ ཨ ཨ ཨ ๑۩۞۩๑
1.2. the Importance of Dra Thal Gyur tantra of Dzogchen Upadesha is well explained by Chogyal Namkahi Norbu Rinpoche
who gave reading transmission or lung of Dra Thal Gyur tantra on open webcast from Dzamlingar , Teneriffe; 08-10 May 2015 :« Dra Thalgyur (sgra thal ‘gyur) is the abbreviated title of the Dzogchen Upadesha Tantra named rin po che ‘byung bar byed pa sgra thal ‘gyur chen po’i rgyud. Guru Garab Dorje re-transmitted this tantra about 300 years before Jesus was born. The Dra Thalgyur has 6 chapters with a total of 168 questions & answers in about 200 folios. These questions include everything we always wanted to know about Dzogchen but did not know how to ask. It is the most important Dzogchen text but it is very difficult and condensed. During a period of about 3 years, Chögyal Namkhai Norbu edited 2 editions of Vimalamitra’s commentary on the Dra Thalgyur. Korde Randrol (‘khor ‘das rang grol) means the self-liberation of samsara and nirvana. We are very fortunate that Chögyal Namkhai Norbu will transmit these profound teachings. (Jim Valby, 2013)«
There is a team of translators at Shang shung institute lead by Elio Guarisco who is also in the process of translating Dra Thal Gyur tantra into English .

https://www.ssi-austria.at/images/info/drathalgyur.pdf


Every Buddhist sacred text can be understood on four levels : outer, inner, secret and most secret . Upadesha in this sense means most secret category of Ati yoga Dzogchen (Tib. Managde) .Upadesha means secret instructions fort he Ati yoga Buddhist practitioners /contemplators to achieve Rainbow body … Every translator will translate it according to his own level of understanding . Most profound translation would come from a Translator who has Direct transmission of the Buddhas , as explained in the above quotation :
»“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.”
Tibetan translators who worked with master Vimalamitra on the second of floor of the Samye temple in 8th Century Tibet , among them Kawa Paltseg , surely had direct transmission of the Buddhas . It was precisely Dzogchen master Vimalamitra who brought Dra Thal Gyur tantra to Tibet and contained it in his Vima Nyingthig lineage of Ati Yoga Dzogchen .

1.3. How to practice secret Sound of our True nature ?
Dzogchen master Longchenpa wrote three sections of Semdzins :
a) the mind finds the calm state
b) overcoming attachment to body and mind
c) understanding the real condition of existence
In the cathegory »Overcoming attachment to body and mind » we find Semdzin of the Sound .
Ideally it would be that the Translator listen to the Natural Sound of the Dharmata while translating Dra Thal Gyur root tantra of Dzogchen Upadesha .
Chris Wilkinson has done great Service to the Dharma by translating Dra Thal Gyur tantra into English and publishing it in uncomplicated format available to all . Its especially good that he included Tibetan text :
Images from the rNying ma rgyud ‘bum … , National library , Royal government of Bhutan , Thimphu , 1982 , 46 Vols , Volume 12, pp 2-173 .
Dra Thal Gyur tantra is also available from Vimala treasures in USA :
http://vimalatreasures.org/dra-tal-gyur-the-reverberation-of-sound-tantra.aspx
There is transliteration of Dra Thal Gyur tantra :

1.4. Personal experiences with the Sound contemplation :
According to my reseach over thirty years of Buddhist study and practice all vehicles of Buddhist Dharma have some relation with the Sound : they understand the Sound from outside to inside , gradually deepening the understanding of innate Buddha nature or Tathagatagharba in ourselves . I began to be very interested in the Sound meditation already in 1987 when reading Mind seal of the Buddhas , an important Chan/Zen text of ancient masters . When I read : The Sound of Tathagatas is therefore unimpeded …« I immediately »woke up« and began my search for Buddhist teachers who could somehow transmit or awaken this Knowledge in me …
Perfect lineage of the Unimpeded Sound of Dharmata /Penetration of Sound comes from Samantabhadra Buddha Dharmakaya , to Vajrasattva Buddha Sambhogakaya , to Nirmanakaya Buddha Garab Dorje and to lineage holders such as Vimalamitra, Padmasambhava , Yeshe Tshogyal…. Longchenpa , Kyabje Thinley Norbu Rinpoche .

EVOLUTION OF HUMANITY

I especially asked again and again Kyabje Thinley Norbu Rinpoche about the Sound contemplation and studied with him with this aim from 1998-2006 .
☼ ཨ ๑۩۞۩๑ OM SVASTI : Precious Tsawai Lama Thinley Norbu Rinpoche – who transmitted Ati yoga Dzogchen lineage to me in Spring 2001, is now reincarnated in Bhutan..Rinpoche wrote Long-life prayer for me on the Dakini day, March 30, 2000 , after performing special puja . “May we rejuvenate the Wisdom Body and abide forever with immeasurable Buddhas.” Eighteen years have passed since then : I am doing my best to uphold endangered Lineage of the Natural sound of Dharmata (Tib. Chonyid kyi rangdra) from the Nyingma Essence (Tib. Ngowo) dimension . My Dharma works are reflected at the Heritage of mankind (WordPress with 181 Alive Dharma teachings) , 58 Visual Dharmas for 21st Century at our OpenBuddhistForum International youtube channel and elsewhere .☼ ཨ ๑۩۞۩๑ Dakini day, March 11, 2018
1.5. The Aim
Of this Dharma dharma discurse it to make the Lineage of Dra Thal Gyur root tantra of Dzogchen Upadesha alive in this world . Penetration of Sound sacred Buddhist text should never become intellectual discussion among different kinds of scholars or monks in the debates . Since Lord of Refuge Shakyamuni Buddha is also Lineage holder of the Penetration of Sound , this sacred text must be threated with uttermost Respect and appreciation . Garab Dorje was emanation of both Shakyamuni Buddha and of Padmasambhava . Shakyamuni Buddha is among Twelve Dzogchen Buddhas ….
Further quotation from the Penetration of Sound are found in Kyabje Dudjom Rinpoche monumental Dharma work : Nyingma school of Tibetan Buddhism . Indeed most mystic quotation from the Penetration of Sound are found there …
»Concerning the holders of this illuminating doctrine (of the great perfection9 during this present age , it says in the Root tantra of the penetration of Sound (sgra thal-‘gyur rtsa-ba’i rgyud , NGB Vol. 10):
After I have passes into nirvana,
In the western land of Oddiyana ,
The divine lady of Dhanakoša
Will bear a fatherless son , Vajra-He;
Who will uphod the genuine teaching.«

We can understand that Garab Dorje or Prahevajra was emanation of Shakyamuni Buddha and of Padmasambhava . He brought to our human realm six millions hundred thousands Dzogchen Ati yoga tantras . His main teaching is found in the Three statements , contained in Visual Dharma :

1.6. How are the Three testaments of Garab Dorje connected to the Penetration of Sound root tantra of Dzogchen Upadesha ?


1.Recognise your Nature : to recognise our True nature one needs Direct introduction to the Natural Sound of Dharmata (Tib. Chonyid kyi rangdra) . Since the Natural sound of Dharmata (Tib. Chonyid) is inherent part of us , primordially present in us , primordially pure (Tib. Kadak) and spontaneously present (Tib. Lhundrub) , gifted contemplators can turn their attention inward and contemplate Primoridally pure Sound . This is especially true in very relaxed state : relaxation is part of Ati yoga Dzogchen Trekcho practice . Contemplating Natural Sound of Dharmata happens effortlesly as part of Ati yoga Dzogchen Todgal contemplations (first vision of Todgal). From first vision we develop contemplation of the Secret Sound further ….
These instructions are related to the second Statement of Garab Dorje :

Don*t remain in doubts and Third Statement : Continue in that state .
Dzogchen master Longchen Rabjam taught that Trekcho and Todgal of Dzogchen Ati yoga must be practiced as a Unity . Contemplating Natural sound of Dharmata – our pure Nature gives us perfect opportunity to do so.

We created Visual Dharma/video Nyingma Vajrayana which gives us perfect explanation about Three lineages of transmission in Nyingma Vajrayana ,
beginning with primordial Buddha Samantabhadra/Samantabhadri (Dharmakaya), Vajrasattva Buddha with Consort (Sambhogakaya) and Guru Garab Dorje (Nirmanakaya) . You may read about Ati yoga Dzogchen at the age of Thirty –three , but it needs many years of diligent Dharma practice, devotion to the Buddhas, accumulation of merit and wisdom to actually directly undertand how Ati yoga is your own primordial State . This is well explained in the Base-Path-Fruit of Ati yoga Dzogchen so clearly presented  in the Wish-granting prayer of Samantabhadra Buddha (Tib. Kunzang Monlam) .

Without faith one can not recognise one*s own primordial state : Shakyamuni Buddha said himself : »For people without (deep)faith its impossible to recognise their own Buddha nature , the same like we can not expect the sprout from the burned seed… » Faith is this sunlight that helps our Buddha nature to awaken , to sprout… Then we need the Path accumulation of merit and wisdom , removing our negative karmic traces , like purifying river sand from the grains of gold … We are going deeper and deeper into understanding and accomplishing our Primordial state of Dharmakaya , united with Three primordial wisdoms : Sound-Light-Rays . Chogyal Namkai Norbu gives clear explanation about three modes of energy : Tsal-Rolpa-Dan . Secret Sound belongs to the most secret mode of our Primordialy pure energy , manifesting as Sambhogakaya . Those of us who practice sadhana : Shitro Yoga of peaceful and wrathful manifestations by Dzogchen master Mingyur Dorje know exactly what is being refered here . Dharma practice must be done with enthusiasm and joy : nobody is forcing you to practice the Dharma path , everyone is responsible for his or her own Enlightenment . Shakyamuni Buddha said : »I show you the path, but liberation depends on you .« Therefore Buddhist path is so unique way out of samsara or cyclic existence : it doesn*t depend on any creator god , but on our own effroets, our own wisdom and intelligence , on the blessings of the Buddhas who already followed this enlightened Path long before us …Lets*s follow on Their Footsteps . Sarwa mangalam – All blessings .


1.7. Why is this Ati yoga Dzogchen lineage endangered ?
Ancient generations of Dzogchen practitioners attained Rainbow body of great transference : Garab Dorje, Manjushrimitra, Shri Singha , Padmasambhava, Yeshe Tsogyal, Senge Wangchuk . Next generations attained Rainbow body : terton Nyala Pema Dundul and many others . Other Ati yoga practitioners and masters accomplished Rainbow body with remainders : Ayu Khandro and many others … also in recent centuries .
Why are accomplishments not increasing but decreasing ? Its my firm beleive that the main reason is this : nowdays almost nobody teaches how to unite the View with meditation and Activities . Although Dzogchen lineage holder gave this very clear advice :
»Descend with the View, ascend with the conduct«
This is most neglected teaching in present century !
People hallucinate about high View of emptiness and clarity like they have high altitude sickness , but their conduct /behaviour remains like ordinary samsaric beings . Dzogchen developed into a intellectual phylosophy , not much into the way of living . Dzogchen was kidnaped by intellectuals who include into it their own delluded ideas and wrong views . Since Shakyamuni Buddha is lineage holder of Ati yoga Dzogchen, he taught the Eightfold noble path and the Four noble truths to be essential part of Buddhist Dharma . There is no contradiction between basic Buddhist teachings and Ati yoga Dzogchen then . Even more to understand when we remember that Garab Dorje was emanation of Shakyamuni Buddha !
And Shakyamuni Buddha taught the basic Buddhist ethics included in Five precepts (Skt: pancasila) . This must be known to all practicing Buddhists .

GO VEGAN = SAVE LIVES !

I am not moralising at all ! But nowdays in this Kali yuga when you mention Buddhist ethics of pancasila people might laught at you ! What is this »traditionalist« telling us ?! We are free to do as we please ! Never doing any prostrations to Buddha Shakyamuni they can not lower theri arrogant egos at all . Maybe the »crown of dellusions« would fall from their heads if they would practice prostrations to Shakyamuni Buddha . Somebody who is not able to understand why keeping the Five ethical precepts of Buddhism are important for him or her, certainly doesn*t have the capacity to practice the View and meditation of Ati yoga Dzogchen . Particullary people who eat animal food , drink alcohol , use drugs etc . lack the Bodhicitta and awareness . Buddhist path of enlightenment is much swifter to accomplish when one has devotion to the Buddhas , not only intellectual understanding , but devotion from the heart . Remember that Mind to Mind transmission between the buddhas happens through Devotion and is hearable as Natural sound of your innate pure Buddha nature .

1.8. Ati yoga Dzogchen Upadesha instructions are self-secret . You might read them here, but you are not able to comprehend . Those who have purified energy , can understand . Fort them these instructions are crystal clear like the buddha on the palm of their hand … To those who don*t yet comprehend , may these instructions serve as wake up call , like bamboo stick (Japanese zen stick Kyosaku ) on their shoulders ! It is my uttermost wish that the English translation of Dra Thal Gyur tantra of Dzogchen Upadesha , published by Chris Wilkinson, serve as a reminder to contemplate the Penetration of secret Sound in ourselves. These sacred text should never become dry speculation of intellectuals and other nihilists .

1.9. The Jewel Maker
»The king of the tantras is the Consequence ,
This most secret and unserpassed teaching
Is right here .
Beleive it !
All of the entourage,
Who have appeared there naturally ,
Were totally delighted ,
And they gave birth to the thought of joy .
Then they took the vow of promisse :
Anyone who reads this Tantra
And holds onto it ,
Who copies it and retains it ,
Who holds it to their throats ,
And to the crown of their heads ,
Will be practicing the service of all the Buddhas .
This reminder is nicely written on the back cover of the Jewel maker .

1.6. Selected bibilography :
https://www.wisdompubs.org/book/nyingma-school-tibetan-buddhism/praise
* The Nyingma School of Tibetan Buddhism Vol. I, II; Dudjom Rinpoche , Jikdrel Yeshe Dorje , translated and edited by Gyurme Dorje with collaboration of Mathew Kapstein ; Wisdom publications , Boston , first edition 1991
For its breadth of vision and attention to detail, The Nyingma School of Tibetan Buddhism has become a standard and classic in its field. The translators and editors of these volumes studied and consulted with the author, Dudjom Rinpoche, before presenting the public this readable, systematic introduction to the whole of Buddhism from the viewpoint of contemporary Nyingma scholarship. Due to the scope of this work, [it includes] supplementary reference material (including visual images) to aid the reader. Several specialized bibliographies, a phonetic Tibetan-to-English index, a comprehensive table of contents, and a thoughtful introduction add to the efficiency of this exceptional work.”—Tricycle

* https://www.amazon.com/Crystal-Way-Light-Dzogchen-Philosophy/dp/1559391359
In The Crystal and the Way of Light, Chogyal Namkhai Norbu examines the spiritual path from the viewpoint of Dzogchen. He discusses the base path and fruit of Dzogchen practice, and describes his education and how he met his principal master who showed him the real meaning of direct introduction to Dzogchen. By interweaving his life story with the teachings, he both sets Dzogchen in its traditional context and reveals its powerful contemporary relevance. The book is richly illustrated with photos of Buddhist masters, meditational deities, and Dzogchen symbols.

2.2. Afterword:
During my Dzogchen study and practice mind to mind and heart to heart  with Kyabje Thinley Norbu Rinpoche from autumn 1999 till summer 2006 I received transmission of Ati Yoga Dzogchen essence lineage of Samantabhadra-Vajrasattva-Garab Dorje …. Rinpoche also offered me his jacket and encouraged me to serve the Teachings of Buddhas . Compassionately he prayed for me with these words : “I will pray for your long life and actual wisdom Dakini qualities prospering for the benefit of all beings.” In one of his letter to me Rinpoche wrote  that “after leaving residual karmic body he wish to rest undistracted in the state of Samantabhadra Buddha.”  From Dec 26 , 2011 onward Rinpoche was in Thugdam meditation for seven days …. May His enlightened aspiration be fulfilled . May we all rejuvenate the Wisdom Body and A-bide for ever with immeasurable Buddhas .

Kyabje Thinley Norbu Rinpoche wrote in one of His great Dharma works in English: “ If we believe in the continuity of mind, then love inconspicuously connects us to ones we love with continuous positive energy , so that even tangible separation between people who love each other do not reduce the intangible power of love. This love is automatically enduring since it is not easily affected by circumstances.”  White Sail, Love and Faith.
As Lama Tharchin Rinpoche of Vajrayana Foundation said , Rinpoche requested everyone connected to him to practice Vajrasattva sadhana for 21 days after His parinirvana. Vajrasattva Buddha is holder of symbolic transmission in Ati Yoga Dzogchen lineage.  Rinpoche also wrote about primordial purity : “The unconditioned , natural state of Buddhas and its immeasurable phenomena are always equally pure. Therefore, all Buddhas are never in transitional states because they are always abiding in indivisible, vajra wisdom Buddha fields.”
Very many Dharma students from all over the world are attending Tribute to Kyabje Thinley  Norbu Rinpoche . May Rinpoche´s Wisdom words reflect in our hearts , pointing out undestructable Vajra essence Light :” The nature of love is to give positive energy to others in order to benefit them and to release them from suffering. The nature of faith is to trust in sublime beings in order to receive blessings of wisdom energy that benefit oneself and others. True faith creates vast love of compassion that benefit countless beings.” White Sail – Love and Faith. _/♥\_OM AH HUM VAJRA GURU PEMA SIDDHI HUM

dedicated to Kyabje Thinley Norbu Rinpoche(1931-2011)
His Holiness Dungse Thinley Norbu Rinpoche passed away in Delhi upstate New York, 26. December 2011. Rinpoche  was 80.

Information Regarding the Parinirvana of HH Dungsé Thinley Norbu Rinpoche

Dungse Thinley Norbu Rinpoche and HH Penor RinpocheAll of the Palyul tulkus, khenpos, lamas, monks, nuns and students are deeply saddened by the news of the parinirvana of the great master of the Nyingma School, Kyabjé Dungse Thinley Norbu Rinpoche. Kyabjé Dungsé Rinpoche entered into his final meditation (Thugdam) on the 26th of December, 2011 where he abided for seven days. His Eminence Tulku Garab Rinpoche informed His Eminence Mugsang Kuchen Rinpoche that Kyabjé Dungsé Rinpoche wanted all his devotees to accumulate the Seven Line Prayer to Guru Rinpoche and/or Vajra Guru mantra as much as possible during thi time.

The Sangha Community of Namdroling Monastery will perform a grand Mindroling tradition Vajrasattva Guru Yoga in front of the Maha Bodhi Stupa at Bodhgaya at the time of Nyingma Monlam Chenmo to receive Kyabjé Dungsé Rinpoche’s blessings. Many monks and nuns have already departed for Bodh Gaya and are carrying through practice there.

We are attaching a Swift Return Prayer written by Kyabjé Dungsé Rinpoche’s son, His Eminence Tulku Garab Rinpoche (PDF):

Prayer for Swift Rebirth of Kyabjé Dungse Thinley Norbu Rinpoche by His Eminence Tulku Garab Rinpoche

Kyabjé Dungsé Thinley Norbu Rinpoche was the holder of the Dudjom Tersar lineage. He was a prominent modern teacher in the Nyingma lineage, the eldest son of the great teacher Jigdral Yeshe Dorje, the Second His Holiness Dudjom Rinpoche. He was the father of Their Eminences Tulku Garab Rinpoche, Tulku Jampal Rinpoche, and Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche. Khyentse Rinpoche has posted regarding his father’s passing to Thugdam here on Facebook.

Kyabjé Dungsé Rinpoche was the incarnation of Tulku Trimé Özer, who was one of seven sons of the First Dudjom Lingpa. He was considered to be an emanation of Longchenpa. In his youth in Tibet he studied for nine years at Mindroling Monastery. His main centers are in the northern Catskills of upstate New York and in California. He wrote many books published by Shambhala, which are possible to find here. Kyabjé Dungsé Rinpoche and our late Kyabjé Penor Rinpoche had great respect and devotion for each other. These two masters visited each other’s centers in New York State on many occasions over the years.

Those who wish to pay their respects to the Kudung of Kyabjé Dungsé Rinpoche as provided to Namdroling Monastery:

From 15 Jan: Grant audience to the public for blessing in Delhi upstate New York

Feb. 2nd: Kudung Rinpoche arriving in Paro, Bhutan

Feb. 2nd-Feb. 4th: in Paro    ; Feb. 5th: Paro to Rangjung; Feb. 5th-Feb. 9th: in Rangjung

Parinirvana of Kyabje Dungse Thinley Norbu Rinpoche

Prepared by: Mindrolling International News Staff
Published: 28 December 2011

Kyabje Thinley Norbu Rinpoche The Mindrolling sangha is deeply saddened at the parinirvana of the great master of the Nyingma School, Kyabje Dungse Thinley Norbu Rinpoche, who withdrew his consciousness into the expanse of dharmata on the 27th of December, 2011.
Condolence letter

AMITABHA FOUNDATION
H.E. Choeje Ayang Rinpoche Lama
Founder / Chairman

Dear Sangha and friends,

We are extremely sad to hear that His Holiness Kyabje Dungse Thinley Norbu Rinpoche passed away into parinirvana last night, December 26, 2011 . On behalf of Amitabha Foundations worldwide . the Drikung Charitable Society in India , and the associated Kagyud Thubten Shedrub Jangchubling Monastic Institute, I send my sincere condolences to Dungse Rinpoche´s family members , disciples and students throughout the world.

Dungse Rinpoche was the eldest son of His Holiness Jigdral Yeshe Dorje , Dudjom Rinpoche, the former head of the Nyingma lineage. For many years, Dungse Thinley Norbu Rinpoche taught the Buddha dharma in America as well as through the Himalayan area , introducing many students to Dzogchen through his personal instructions and incomparable writings. I myself was fortunate to take teachings from Dungse Rinpoche´s father , His Holiness Dudjom Rinpoche, and so have a connection with a lineage that Dungse Thinley Norbu Rinpoche carried.

photo by Andrea Pucci, Facebook

It is said that Dungse Thiley Norbu Rinpoche left a message asking that everyone connected to him do Vajrasattva practice for three weeks after his passing. As all Great Masters are one in their wisdom minds , every student of the Buddha dharma , irrespective of the lineage of teachings they are following, is actually connected with Rinpoche without any need for sectarian prejudice. Hence through this practice we all have the opportunity of connecting with his wisdom mind and receiving his blessings, even though he has now left his physical body behind and merged with the ineffable Dharmakaya. If you have taken the Outer, Inner, Secret and Innermost Secret Vajrasattva teachings or the Vajrasattva connected with the Nyingma Phowa from the preliminary Practices (Ngondro), then I request that you practice Vajrasattva every day for the next three weeks.

This of course is not in any way to benefit such a great, realized being as Dungse Thinley Norbu Rinpoche, but to increase your own merit and wisdom to benefit sentient beings.

May he continue to inspire countless devoted disciples that they may completely accomplish their practice. May his enlightened activity spread through his descendants and his golden lineage. May he be reborn swiftly in order for Buddha dharma may flourish and he may continue to benefit countless beings.

With my prayers
H.E. Choeje Ayang Rinpoche

Dungse Rinpoche’s remains

« The remains are collected from the purkhang
Purkhang A thoepa (skull) and tsem (six teeth) were collected yesterday from the remains, purthel (ashes) and kuri (bones) of His Holiness Dungse Thinley Norbu Rinpoche, five days after the purjang (cremation) on March 3 in Dagophu, Paro.

The remains were collected from a 25 feet tall purkhang chorten (crematorium), coinciding with the 15th day of the first Bhutanese month, in a traditional religious procession. The purkhang, which stood on an intricately carved dais, with a traditional roof over it, and held by four pillars painted with Bhutanese designs, remain untouched until the remains were collected.

Home minister, Minjur Dorji, who was present during the collection, said the skull and six teeth were found without even a burnt mark. “It’s a miracle and we should all be proud for being able to conduct the purjang in Bhutan,” lyonpo said.

Paro’s national museum director, Khenpo Phuntsok Tashi, explained that the remains are body relics, which enlightened masters after cremation leave behind.

“The remains signify that the Rinpoche’s mind has reached the level of five Buddhas’ contemplation, representing the attainment of Buddhahood,” he said.

Lopen Sonam from Bartsam, who initiated in designing the purkhang, said the purkhang’s inside where the kudung was cremated had turned white. “There was no sign of fire,” he said.

He said part of the collected ashes would be made into tsa tsa (miniature replica containing religious scripts) for offerings; while some will be placed in Jangchub chorten (stupa) as relics. He said, once the remains are collected, the purkang, also called nyangdey chorten (parinirvana), would be turned into a Jangchub chorten. Lopen Sonam said the bones would be powdered and put into statues.

The reincarnation of His Holiness Dudjom Jigdral Yeshe Dorji, Sangay Pema Rinpoche, who presided over the purjang ceremony, performed ruchog, a purification ceremony of the bones and remains.

More than a thousand devotees were present during the collection of Dungse Thinley Norbu Rinpoche, who passed away on December 27 in the United States.

Dear worldwide Friends of Buddha Dharma , may this Teachings find you in good health, peace, wisdom and prosperity. We focus on Kyabje Thinley Norbu Rinpoche´s advice about birth control – it is not much written and spoken about this in Buddhist centres, but influences the live of many Buddhists. Birth control should not remain taboo topic either. Included are also other post from selected programmes of Buddha Dharma- enjoy Universal learning at the HERITAGE OF MANKIND . Treasure of pure Dharma.  

II. INTERNATIONAL INSTITUTE FOR CONTEMPORARY BUDDHIST STUDIES

 2.1.Kyabje Thinley Norbu Rinpoche : BIRTH CONTROL

Nowdays birth control is widely used . Is it sinful according to the Buddhist teachings ?

        Buddhism is neither an eternalist sytem which believes in a creator of all things nor a nihilist system which holds that nothing is real beyond what can be perceived by the senses. In general, Buddhists believe that our mind is the basis and creator of all phenomena, and that all conceptions make karma or habit. Through habit many phenomena arise and the cause of these phenomena is conception or dualistic mind. Though conceptions are invisible, they continuously make karma until all conceptions finally vanish into non-dualistic mind . Although there is bad and good karma, Pandit Dipankara said : “Until all conceptions are exhausted, there is karma”. So, we should believe in the cause and result of karma. Then we should try to abandon bad karma and make good karma.

       According to the Buddhist system, there are many bad karmas, but the worst is killing, especially the killing of human beings who are support for enlightenment or the source of benefit to other sentient beings. Even though because of our ignorance we can´t abandon all bad activity, still we should abandon the worst as much as we can. We also can´t carry out all the many possible good actions, but at least we should try to fulfil the most important ones as much as possible.

      Our children are drawn to us because of previous karma, so if we use birth control, it seems that we create an obstacle to their birth . Their birth is like repayment of a loan. If we reject it, it makes bad karma and increases the loan interest. So we should try to accept our karma whether it is bad or good without disbelief in the knowledge that all phenomena are caused by karma.

       As such as we are always praying to be reborn in the jewel of a precious human body, we are constantly doing things to make obstacles for human rebirth. So mostly birth control serves the purpose of allowing us indulgence in our passions while avoiding compassion for those with whom we have established previous karmic bonds. In general people think of having many children only in terms of their present convenience , seeing children as a cause of problems and obstacles to their freedom. At first there might appear to be some immediate truth to that, but really , if we examine it sharply we can see that some people who have many children have no problems, some with many people have many problems and others with no children have no problems. It can not be foreseen.

        We also have a tendency to forget that the mind must take rebirth in one of the six realms regardless of the population in this world. Perhaps it is better to give beings in lower realms the opportunity to gain merit and attain liberation through a precious human body. Population control solves some of the material difficulties for humanity but who is to say that the poor , the wretched cannot attain liberation if given the opportunity ?  Is liberation only for those of wealth and power ? Liberation begins with a first step and it is best with a human body .

     The best way to have sexual relations is to follow the inner tantric system. First, we find a great yogi or teacher who can pass on to us his experience in high vajrayana practice. We should never have doubts about tantric system. According to this , we should practice without rejecting human birth and always, with seven exceptions, control ejaculation.

     If we can not practice this way, we should adopt the vinaya system of becoming a monk or nun, or another vow system of abstinence grounded in wearied mind and general weariness with samsara.

      Some people may think that monks and nuns by their abstinence from sex practice birth control. That in the effect is true but there is a major difference . Ordinary people who do not understand or believe in the Dharma have sexual relations to satisfy their desires , their motivation being selfish and impure , whereas monks and nuns are weary of samsara and renounce their desires in order to attain enlightenment and thereby help all sentient beings . Vajrayana practitioners as well may seem to practice birth control by using and controlling desire , but their intention is also pure. They do not have sex in an ordinary way. They visualize pure deities in their practice with the intention to attain desireless wisdom bliss, enlightenment, and to help all sentient beings.

      Intention then is what is most important. If we believe in the Dharma , then we should practice in either of these two ways or as normal married couples without forethought of preventing birth.

       I did not mean to reject birth control if it is the social custom of a country. For those who don´t belive in karma, it is not necessary to follow Buddhist belief In karma. I am speaking only of my own personal conviction.

2.2. Questions and answers

 Questions and answers : sonamtshewang Bhutan  on ATIYOGA* DZOGCHEN ❤☀ THREE TESTAMENTS OF GARAB DORJE:

With due respect to Buddha Dharma , I would like to submit a humble question for my consumption please.
we Buddhista pray and request a lot to various Lha such as Guru rinpoche, dolma and jamyang etc. Is it right way to pray to external sources for protection and blessing < for me it looks like Hindus view. grateful for your clarification.

@sonamtshewang INTERNATIONAL INSTITUTE FOR CONTEMPORARY BUDDHIST STUDIES : this question is interesting, since it comes from Buddhist from Bhutan who has hundred of years of Buddhist history. When we pray to Guru Rinpoche,Manjushri ,Arya Tara and other Wisdom deities , it is not any external source of gods. All Wisdom deities are contained in our innate Buddha nature , as taught in 3 Testaments of Garab Dorje. Discover your true nature by following pure Ati Yoga Dzogchen master .

2.3. WORLD OF PSYCHOLOGY : experts agree that Facebook flirting (for married couples or those in committed relationship )  is wide spread phenomena ! Learn more about this on the link. Different schools of psychology don´t agree about main concern : when is flirting already cheating (your partner)….In Buddhist psychology this has to do with 5 ethical precepts : advice not to engage in sexual misconduct .

2.5. The Dalai Lama and the Separation of Church and State in America

www.huffingtonpost.com

The separation of church and state is a major principle in American public life, one that the rest of the world acknowledges and — as evinced by the Dalai Lama’s recent remarks — even admires.

This separation means collaboration with Churches and religious communities. It is not absolute separation . In Slovenia, European union we have similar model now, with Law about religious freedom.Although the constitution demands separation of state and churches/religious communities, new law of Religious freedom (from 2007) promote collaboration between both in areas such as social support for all who need help, education, research…

Many states in European union are far away from actual religious freedom. States like Italy, Austria, parts of Germany (Bavaria) have too close connection with Catholic Church . In Greece Orthodox Church is too much supported by the state. Years ago Buddhists in Greece were even put in jail because they promoted Buddhism. When Dzongsar Jamyang Khyentse Rinpoche came to Greece / Athen airpost (1993) in Buddhist robe, to deliver Treasure vases to local Buddhists, he was not permitted to enter the country. Rinpoche returned in ordinary dress later ! This he told us at the seminar Meditation in action , organised by Buddha Dharma-OBFI in March 1994, Adria convent, Ankaran city, Slovenia.

Homage to Vidyadhara Garab Dorje .

May our awareness become liberated into the Buddha state.

I. Introduction

Blessed Dharmachakra day in this month of miracles , dear Friends  of Buddha Dharma, when merit multiplies 100.00 times. Please accept the Dharma gift : Three Testaments of Garab Dorje, for auspiciousness in Iron Tiger year. By viewing it with attention,praying, rating 5*, sharing, favouring, commenting & embedding it your merit also increase.

Three Testaments of Vidyadhara Garab Dorje

Homage to immaculate Buddhas !
i.Introduction: Three Testaments of supreme Master Garab Dorje are thus revealed : this Visionary Dharma describes all 3 lineages of transmission as explained in Nyingma Vajrayana Buddhism-Visual Dharma. To study, reflect, embed , share, favour, rate 5* and comment it beings great blessings it is empowered with the Sound*Light of the Ultimate nature. Treat this Visionary Dharma with great respect !
Three  Testaments are translated according to the meaning, not literally.
Supremely Blissful Vajra Vidyadhara Garab Dorje- was 1st human Master of Atiyoga*Dzogchen, born around 360 years B.C. after the Parinirvana of the Buddha. He was born at Dhanakosha in the country of Uddiyana (probably Swat valley in N Pakistan). As emanation of Sambhogakaya Buddha Vajrasattva he revealed 6.400.000 Dharmas which were later divided into Semde, Longde and Mengak-de teachings of Atiyoga*Dzogchen. Supreme Dharmas like 18 tantras of Upadesha are most sublime spiritual teachings in our galaxy. They exist in 13 other galaxies. This Dharmas will benefit beings until samsara is emptied. Garab Dorje taught 3 Testaments to his heart disciple Manjushrimitra when he was about to leave this world. Penetration of Sound root tantra (Tib. dra tal gyur) is 1st of 18 tantras it has close connection with 3 Testaments, because Penetration of Sound is the root of all Buddhas teachings. All 1002 Buddhas of this Fortunate Kalpa listened to Penetration of Sound and they will teach, one after another , from the Reverberation of that same Sound of Tathagatas. Thus is this Visionary Dharma inspired by the Penetration of Sound root tantra, for which Vidyadhara Vimalamitra wrote the commentary : sgra thal ‘gyur rtsa rgyud ‘grel sgron ma snang byed. Sound of Vajra is Vajra speech, non-dual Sound of all Tathagatas. In the Tagdrol sacred diagram we see Vajra song with Lineage masters: Samantabhadra Yab-Yum, Vajrasattva Yab-Yum, VidyadharaGarabDorje,Manjushrimitra,Shri Singha,Jnanasutra,Vimalamitra, Guru Padmasambhava and Khandro Yeshe Tshogyal.In the middle part there are Dharma verses & the mantra from the Guru sadhana of Garab Dorje , to inspire faith & devotion for this sublime Dharma of Garab Dorje. Khyentse Chökyi Lodro (1896-1959) wrote them according to his dream-pure vision. Sound of Vajra is great Clear Light Energy of primordial state. All ancient Masters of Atiyoga*Dzogpa chenpo accomplished Rainbow Body of great transfer. Thus we pray with fervent devotion. Atiyoga Lineage prayer invokes the blessings of primordialy pure Dharmakaya, Blissful Sambhogakaya and Compassionate Nirmanakaya Buddhas. Sound Vajra is the state of pure and total Presence, equally praised by all Teachers who have been the Light of the world, wrote Vidyadhara Manjushrimitra in his Dharma: Chang-chub kyi sem Gom-pa : Cultivating primordial state of pure and total presence.
ii. Practical instructions : Listen and view with awareness. When you hear the Vajra Sound, turn your attention inward and abide in the continuity of Sound*Light of Ultimate nature (Dharma-ta). It is liberation by bare attention-remembering the meaning of the Vajra Song which is Vajra Sound, great secret energy (Dang) of primordial state. Samadhi(contemplation, ting nge´dzin) of Sound was taught by Vidyadhara Vimalamitra (Drimé Shenyen) who is abiding at Wutai Shan mountains of China. Guru Rinpoche gave further advice how to practice supreme Path of Atiyoga*Dzogpa chenpo :Descend with the view and ascend with the conduct. May thus all meditators become vegetarians, saving themselves, the planet and all beings. Vidyadhara Shri Singha also advised not to practice Dzogchen with self-centered ambitions. May we all be in the state of commitment to what is indestructible Vajrasattva Sound of Vajra.
iii.Dedicated to all Masters who taught us great completeness of Atiyoga*Dzogpa chenpo, esp.Kyabje Thinley Norbu Rinpoche, H.H. the Dalai Lama, Chögyal Namkhai Norbu,Ayang Rinpoche, Ontrul Rinpoche  and many others. May our awareness become liberated into the state of the Guru Vidyadhara Garab Dorje. We offer this Visionary Dharma , prepared in the special month of Bumjur Dawa, to the Lotus-feet of the Buddha.

III.INTERNATIONAL INSTITUTE FOR CONTEMPORARY BUDDHIST STUDIES                          3.1.Questions and answers :

Lian Hua – USA . What mantras do you think it is okay to chant without receiving lung or empowerment?

Mantras that are presented in Visual Dharmas are very beneficial to chant even without receiving lung (reading transmission from the Lama) or empowerment. Mantra of Buddha Vajrakilaya requires lung or empowerment – as other mantras of wrathful deities. If one would like to go deeper into the sadhana and understanding of mantra is good to ask for lung or empowerment from the Lama, who is vegetarian, has pure Buddhist vows and lineage , has wisdom and compassion. Mantras are Speech of Wisdom Deities . They must be respected as such. Dharma practitioners  can ask for  appointment for my Dharma counselling online , on Skype. May your diligent Dharma practice bring you peace, joy, health , prosperity and  swift progress on spiritual path toward liberation and Enlightenment.

devilwillcryle OM MANI PADME HUM

Hello, Isn’t OM MANI PADME HUM used for exorcism and to gather the surrounding energy into our body? The reason that I am asking is that I have a step uncle, he is an exorcist. I heard he repeated this statement over and over.Thanks.

Maybe you misunderstood why your step uncle is repeating the mantra OM MANI PADME HUM. This mantra is in Sanskrit language and is closely connected with Avalokiteshvara Buddha of compassion. The meaning of mantra is explained in the teaching , related to Visual Dharma about Avalokiteshvara Buddha. It purifies all six realms of existence : hell realm, hungry ghost realm, animal realm, human realm, demi-gods realm and god´s realms. It is very healing to chant OM MANI PADME HUM every day, with devotion and concentration, as shown in Visual Dharma-Buddhist teaching for 3rd millennium.

theravster09Australia
Hi! I was playing this video over again and was reading the script (towards the end) which was of
 interest, “How To Relief The Suffering of The World?”. So how can one do this, for the world? Thanks.

“HOW TO RELIEF THE SUFFERING OF THE WORLD ?” is question in E-learning curriculum of this Visual Dharma. By invoking the Blessings of Medicine Buddhas-by chanting their names-OM SANGYE MENLA- with concentration and devotion, one reduces the suffering of the world, step by step, dedicating the merit of this spiritual practice to all beings.

Homage to Medicine Buddhas .

Subspace4dGermany-has made a comment on AMITABHA- BUDDHA OF INFINITE LIGHT:

Can you tell me what color of light you take when you die to go to heaven? I mean not rebirth but assention.

NAMO AMITABHA This Visual Dharma teaches you how to come to Buddha Amitabha Pure land, not rebirth in heaven or circling in samsara´s cyclic existence. Just develop faith in Buddha Amitabha, recite His name  and you will surely know His Infinite Light.

In WISDOM WITHOUT BORDERS 🙂

nutier France

Dear venerable  , please enjoy my questions , thank you .
In the round of Samsara that beings go through , regardless of the plane they live and die in , the process of being reborn , getting old , sick , dying and being reborn again had been tediously timeless . All beings undergo these process many times in as many great kappas .
Q.162 – How many years are one kappa ?
Q.163 – If Kappa is a measure of time in Samsara , how many kappas are one samsara’s cycle? May peace , happiness be upon you always ! nuttier

These are questions from Buddhist cosmology. In Buddhism, a kalpa generally indicates the length of time between the creation  and recreation of the world or the universe, spanning the period of a world´s formation, existence,destruction and non-existence. There are different interpretation of measurement of a kalpa in Buddhism. It often simply denotes a very long period of time, similar to aeon. There are small, medium,great, and incalculable kalpas. Small kalpa would be equivalent to 16.8 million years and a large or great kalpa 1.247 million.

From this quotation from the Seeker´s glossary of Buddhism (Buddha Edu. Foundation, Taiwan, 1998) we can understand that samsara or cyclic existence is almost infinite, when we see samsara as something external or as collective samsara with six realms of existence of sentient beings. More subtle understanding of samsara relates to individual samsara of individual sentient being, for example human being with five skandas or aggregates. When meditator successfully purifies his/her aggregates into five Dhyani Buddhas, as instructed in high inner Vajrayana Dharma, one transcends samsara. For such meditator or great Bodhisattva there is no more samsara. Bodhisattvas of 8th bhumi / level already have hundres of emanations who teach the Buddha Dharma and  can help sentient beings.

Penetration of Sound root tantra

Homage to primordial Buddha Samantabhadra*Samantabhadri,

Lineage holder of intentional lineage of Nyingma Vajrayana Buddhism,

Teaching through the Vajra Speech of unseparable Sound*Light of Dharmata.

i.As presented in the Visual Dharma: Nyingma Vajrayana Buddhism there are three lineages of transmission of pure Dharma in ancient times and also now. With direct introduction to Sound*Light of Dharmata (Chönyid kyi rang dra) the meditator contemplates the samadhi of Sound as taught by accomplished Atiyoga master Vimalamitra . Tulku Thondup says about  the Mind transmission : “Samantabhadra, the dharmakaya, transmitted tantric teachings to the sambhogakaya Buddhas who are inseparable from him, through Mind transmission without any verbal or physical expression. In reality the dharmakaya does not express anything, but for the sambhogakaya Buddhas the tantric transmission appears from the dharmakaya spontaneously. This is known as the transmission between the Buddhas.” (1) Kyabje Dudjom Rinpoche II (1904-1987) teaches about three lineages of transmission  (2) : “According to our special tradition there were three great descents of the teachings (of the secret mantra tradition). It says in the exegetical tantra of the Oceanic Magical Net : the intentional, symbolic and aural lineages are respectfully those of the Conquerors, bodhisattvas and yogins. That is to say, the three lineages to be explained are : intentional lineage of the conquerors, symbolic lineage of awareness holders and the aural lineage of mundane individuals.”

“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.

To maintain Mind transmission / Blessings of the Buddhas through the Natural Sound of Dharmata (Tib. Chönyid kyi rangdra) there are A-ti Yoga retreats at special places , supporting Contemplation / Samadhi.
๑۩۞۩๑ ཨ ཨ ཨ ๑۩۞۩๑

ii. Intentional lineage of the Conquerors (Jinas, Buddhas) is essential and unobstructed Dharmakaya, primordial purity of voidness, unseparable from Rupakaya (Sambhogakaya and Nirmanakaya). These three lineages must be understood in non-gradual way.

Let´s give a symbol : intentional lineage of the      Conquerors is the essence of the shining diamond.

Symbolic lineage of the awareness holders – bodhisattvas is the Light  revealing mandalas of peaceful and wrathful deities, emamated from Samantabhadra*Samantabhadri Buddha. Aural lineage of yogins are the rays shining from the diamond. Without the essence of that diamond which is natural Sound*Light there are no emanations of Light.

As Kyabje Dudjom Rinpoche wrote: “Intentional lineage of the Conquerors is the speech of the Buddha-body of reality. It says in the Penetration of Sound: Thus in the celestial expanse of reality, there appeared natural Sound, blessed by the speech of the great All-pervader (Samantabhadra, Khyab-´jug). “ (3)

Thinley Norbu Rinpoche also describes three lineages of transmission :”Transmission of the Wisdom Mind of the Buddhas ( Tib. rGyal.ba dgongs.pahi brgyud.pa), the Lineage of the “Transmission by the Signs of the Vidyadharas” (Tib. Rig.hdzin brda.yi brgyud.pa), and the Lineage of “Oral  Transmission of Superior Individuals” (Tib. Gang.zag snan khung .gi brgyud.pa).” (4)

iii. Thus the Penetration of Sound (sgra thal-´gyur rtsa-baí rgyud) is the root (tsa-wa) tantra (rgyud) of Ati Yoga upadesha (Managde) and it should be always understood as first of Eighteen Dzogchen Upadesha tantras and not the way around. Penetration of Sound is the Root (Tsa-wa) of all Buddhas Dharma. The one who introduces the meditator to the Sound*Light of Dharma-ta, is the root  Lama (tsa-wai Lama), your root spiritual Friend. This direct and natural introduction can be very unelaborated. Therefore it is simple, natural and direct. As such it must be appreacited and respected – in the same way as we appreciate and respect primordial Buddha Samantabhadra*Samantabhadri, Vajrasattva*Buddha Locana , Garab Dorje and all lineage masters. Direct introduction to the Sound*Light of Dharma-ta is supreme Dharma door : authentic Dharma practice to primordial wisdom (Jnana, Yeshe, 10th perfection). It is supreme gift – shining diamond on the palm of your hand.

iv. Practical instructions: our research shows that very little is known and published about Penetration of Sound root tantra of Dzogchen Ati Yoga . It is rarely even mentioned in Dharma studies and in articles on internet. This shows that the understanding of natural Sound*Light of Dharma-ta is weaker with every generation. Partly because of the fact pointed out already by Kyabje Dudjom Rinpoche II. in his study: Harmful influences of tobacco and drugs. Such pollutants like tobacco and drugs, with contributing factors: bad air, unclean water, meat, poisons etc – close the central energy channel and diminish natural Sound*Light of Dharmata, our innate Buddha nature. Proper way to open the central channel is by purification and detoxifying the energy . Wellness formulas of our Buddhist Wholesome medicine serve this aim successfully.

3.1. Questions & answers Zedkr9 Malaysia

My name is Ron and I am a Chinese from Malaysia. Here, most Chinese are either Buddhists, Taoists or Christians. Only a handful of them are Muslims unlike the Malays who must be Muslims and cannot change their religion. We have all 4 schools of Buddhism here too, the least popular being Zen. I  find Tibetan Buddhism very fascinating but it is also very complex and complicating. I was told that we must not simply chant Tibetan mantras unless they are handed down to us by a Rinpoche. Why must all the mantras be so secretive? Aren’t they supposed to be open in order to help layman in need? Do you mind helping me clarify some of my doubts here?
Also, most of the centers… we don’t exactly get a chance to talk to the Guru. So what people do is simply join in and follow the chanting sessions only. Likewise, I don’t actually know the purpose of the mantras which I chant too. Since I am told to chant, I chant … and as you can see, I chant quite a bit too everyday without missing a single day. If I really cannot make it, then I will replace the following day.
The mantras I chant are…
1] Black Mahakala [Om Maka Kiya Laiya Sowaka] – stanza and mantra [1 Mala daily each morning on empty stomach – was told the mantra works more effective that way]
– I was also informed that after chanting this, our life would gradually improve and we will beable to do well financially. But so far, having chanted more than two years, my situation is still the same…sigh! That was the very first mantra I chanted. I started out just by chanting the stanza 3 times and then proceeded with the mantra for a couple of Malas before winding up chanting 25,000 times a day for a year without seeing any results! So eventually I reduced it to only 1 Mala a day.
2] Vajrasattva [1 mala daily every morning]
3] Avalokiteshvara [Compassionate Mantra] – 21 times daily
[Om Mani Padme Hum] – 21 Mala daily
4] Om Prom Svaha [21 Mala daily]
5] Mareichi [Om Mareichi Mom Svaha] – 1 Mala daily
6] Guru Rinpoche – 1 Mala twice dailyOm Ah Hum Vajra Guru Padma Siddhi Hum
Du Sum Sang Gyay Guru Rinpoche Ngo Drup Kun Dak De Wa Chhen Poi Zhap
Bar Chhad Kun Sel Dud Dul Drak Po Tsal Sol Wa Deb So Jyin Gyiy Lap Tu Sol
Chhyi Nang Sang Wai Bar Chhad Zhi Wa DangSam Pa Lhun Gyi Drup Par Jyin Gyi Lob. May I know what Guru Rinpoche represents? What’s the purpose of reciting that mantra? Also, which Buddha’s mantra is Om Prom Svaha? I was informed that this is a very powerful mantra. Even those people who are insane can get well. But so far, I couldn’t find anyone to tell me who’s mantra that is… Could you kindly help me out? Would certainly like to get a piece of your advise…Thanks .Regards. Ronnie

Answer : Dear Friend  of Buddha Dharma, it is nice to hear that Buddhism is living spiritual path & religion  also in Malaysia.  The term Tibetan Buddhism is wrong- correct name is Mahayana & Vajrayana Buddhism. When Tibetans were still in Tibet (until 1959) they did not think about themselves as Tibetan Buddhists. After many of them came into exile to India and when they began to spread the Dharma to other continents, this term: Tibetan Buddhism – became popular. But such name is misleading. Many schollars and even some  “Tibetan Lamas” agree with this. At Buddha Dharma we are practicing & teaching Theravada,  Mahayana & Vajrayana  Buddhist path. You asked for direct answer. My answer is from that perspective. Mantras that you chant come from Sanskrit , not from Tibetan. Buddhist mantras represent Enlightened Speech of Wisdom deities : it is much better to receive empowerment from qualified Buddhist master before you start with the recitations or to practice our Visual Dharmas diligently.  It is not only reciting of mantras , as you do – but also correct way of seeing (so called visualisation), breathing and physical posture. Nowdays mantras  are not secret at all , since they are publsihed in books and on internet . What is more secret is their meaning . Reciting of Buddhist  mantras can surely help you, but you must practice the Dharma with proper motivation. With proper motivation you must obtain Refuge to Three precious Jewels first. Then you must become a vegetarian, avoiding  drinking wine , using poisons . Five ethical precepts are explained in our Visual Dharma Buddhas´s Enlightenment.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jNrxtDo-oaM

Buddhist mantras are not chanted for personal prophit , althouh one´s circumstances can improve. The aim is to proceed on the spiritual path toward liberation from samsara and to accomplish enlightenment. If you wish to improve your financial situation, reduce your expenses and don´t spend money for anything  harmful: cigarettes, alcohol, drugs, meat, games, eating junk food in restaurants.  Also write down all your expenses and make regular book keeping for yourself. Save 15-20 % of your monthly income. Donate some of this monthlöy savings to Buddhist  charity. For example: we have Buddhist school for orphan children in Nepal, lead by His Eminence Sagar Rinpoche. With donating to charity your merit/positive energy will increase.

To learn the meaning of mantras  which you chant daily, study description of our Visual Dharmas : Avalokiteshvara – Buddha of compassion – for mantra OM MANI PADME HUM http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7dC_8PMNp-s

Seven-line Prayer to Guru Rinpoche and Teaching about Seven-line prayer : for mantra of Guru Padmasambhava : OM AH HUM VAJRA GURU PEMA SIDDHI HUM http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i28fZuqKKcQ The purpose to recite Vajra Guru mantra is to become enlightened. Guru Padmasambhava is the emanation  of Buddha Amitabha. He represent the enlightened qualities and activities  of all Buddhas.  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7NDt5ViCjsk

For mantra of Vajrasattva study about the meaning of 100-syllable mantra -http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ApIARcwuAzc

The Sanskrit syllables SVAHA are not pronounced “Sowaka” as you wrote in the mantra of Mahakala. For Chinese speaking it is difficult to pronounce Sanskrit correctly, but one must improve one´s pronunciation. Tibetans pronounce Svaha as “Soha” which is also wrong.

Ad4) Om Prom Svaha :  this is some mantra for vanishing diseases. It probably comes from Hinduism. In   Buddhism there is mantra of Vajra Gharuda and other mantras for healing. This mantra should  be avoided, since it is not so essential. Most important mantras that you recite daily, are : Vajrasattva 100-syllable mantra and Vajra Guru mantra (of Padmasambhava).

Ad5) Merichi is probably Maritseye or Yellow Golden Tara. For this mantra you need empowerment or at least reading transmission (Lung) before you recite it.

You asked if Arya Tara and Guru Rinpoche (Padmasambhava) are Bodhisattvas or fully enlightened Buddhas ? Such questions are asked often without knowing the difference and similarities between the Buddhas and Bodhisattvas. Who is Bodhisattva and who is fully enlightened Buddha ? Study , contemplate and write me shorter answer according to your understanding of Buddhas and Bodhisattvas. Sometimes I also ask questions – I don´t want to give “one-sentence” superficial answer….

At the beginning of the day- before mantra recitation, add Verses of Prayer  to Eight noble auspicious ones , as taught in the Visual Dharma. Start with English recitations and also make prostrations at appropriate times. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dMJxMJPS5ZI

This will increase your motivation and bring you auspiciousness. Then recite the mantras, as you practiced until now.

At the end of recitation dedicate the merit/positive energy to all beings. May I suggest that you should also meditate in silence, in relaxed way, every evening before sleep and after you wake up in the morning. In such way you wil become more present and aware.   As diligent Dharma practitioner study more about meaning of Refuge , write notes, develop deep faith in the Buddhas and  holy Dharma . With this Dharma advice I wish you smooth progress on spiritual path toward Enlightenment.

Comment on “TWENTY – ONE VERSES OF PRAISE TO TARA”

Lovely! How would a mono-theist understand Tara, angel or demon?

Answer : Arya Tara is full enlightened Buddha in female form. She is neither anger nor demon. For Interfaith dialogue there is the link :

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2U_wIVPE8p0

Globalaffair: So Arya Tara is like a saint, or one who devotes their life to
contemplation or meditation?

Dear Friend  of Buddha Dharma,21 verses of praise to Arya Tara describe a lot about Her, esp. 21 activities of Arya Tara. Just read carefully and contemplate 🙂

In Wisdom without borders : ven. Mangala Konchok Norbu

nutier France

Dear venerable  , please enjoy my questions , thank you .
Maha Brahma , Great Brahma ; two of this realm’s more famous inhabitants are the great Brahma , a deity whose delusion leads him to regard himself as the
 all-powerful , all-seeing supposedly creator of the universe ( see Digha Nikaya 11 ) , and Brahma Sahampati , who begs the Buddha to teach Dhamma to the world .

Q.143 – Are Maha brahma and Brahma Sahampati the same as the four Brahma Viharas? Answer:  Brahma is the god – who in the Hindu view, created the world. When uncapitalised, the word brahma  indicates the corresponding god of any particular world,  not only the Brahma of this world.  There are Four immeasurables, cultivated by the Bodhisattvas : infinite-loving kindness (maitri), infinite compassion (karuna), infinite joy (mudita), infinite equanimity(upeksha).
Recommended reading :Dr. K.Sri Dhammananda: Treasure of the Dhamma, Buddhist Missionary society, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, 1994.

Q.144 – If Maha Brahma is the creator of the universe , does he creates all things , all being minds , and all realms of existence , samsara too ?
You already answered  this by writing above : “great Brahma, a deity whose delusion leads him to regard himself as all-powerful, all-seeing supposedly creator of the universe.” How can you then ask : If Brahma is the creator of the world ? Samsara – individual samsara and collective samsara with six realms of existence, includes beings of upper realms also. Samsara is created by ignorance (read : stupidity , unawareness).

If you truly wish to understand how samsara is created, study more the Dahrma teachings related to the Wish-granting prayer of Samantabhadra. Here is auspicious link to that Visual Dharma: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8W91pUTf2Jc and

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RtxoGSk1wJk In this answer  we are linking Theravada Buddhist Teachings with Atiyoga Dzogpa chenpo Buddhist teachings.

Q.145 Why doesn’t he create also the Nirvana ?
Nirvana can not be “created” or compounded (Tibetan: Dumache- uncompounded).  It is utterly uncreated, simple and natural, without arguing. As Shakyamuni Buddha said :
Nirvana is peace . This is 4th seal of authentic Buddhist Dharma.

Q.146 – When Brahma Sahampati begs the Buddha to teach Dhamma to the world , has he a long life until Buddha period about 2553 years ago ?
May peace, happiness be upon you always !
nutier

Brahma Sahampati asked the Enlightened One also to theach gods like Brahma Sahampati was. Shakyamuni Buddha is therefore Enlightened Teaccher of gods and men (human beings). Life span of brahmas is counted in millions of human years.

Nutier : Dear venerable  , please enjoy my questions , thank you . In these fine material planes there are no females , all are males and when one is reborn there one becomes a male and there is no attachment or emotion because there is no sex , no greed and all sensuous feelings are non-existent .
Q.147 – How to distinguish Brahmas , Devas are males if they have no sex ?
Your investigation shows how religious imaginary is discriminative toward women even in so called “higher planes of existence” ! There are Dewi also (goddesses) in higher planes, bit obviously they don´t play important roles in theistic systems . So Dewis (goddesses) are not mentioned much in holy scriptures of Hinduism , also not in Buddhism. Maybe goddesses are just like clerks or secretaries here in our human world – they do very important work , but are almost unknown to the general public
J Take this just as an allegory for  upper  planes of existence….Q.148 – If all beings living in these planes have  no attachments or emotions , can they attain Nirvana directly after death ?  May peace and happiness be upon you always !  nutier Answer : It doesn´t mean  that gods and goddesses of higher planes of samsara overcame the ignorance . Ignorance is the problem, not attachment and emotions. Ignorance is based on ego or self-centered ambitions. Many meditators have similar symptoms : self-centered ambitions. If you don´t let go of your ego or over-proportional pride (I meditate, I have done this, I made it,I practice the dharma, I succeeded and so on…) you remain in samsara, even if you do many meritios deeds. Attaining of Nirvana is attainment of

P E A C E, as Shakymuni Buddha did. Bardo state after  death surely looks differently for gods and for humans. They have different karmic traces. When we dedicate the merit of prayers and meditations, we include gods in that dedication. May all beings be soon liberated from samsara.

HERITAGE OF MANKIND

RAINBOW  LIGHTS

Alive Dharma teachings , Jan 3, 2009

“When thoughts dissolve you gaze at the rainbow Lights.

True love, Infinite, without duality,

Complete silence, Purity, Spontaneity.”

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CqBphGFzmW0

I.Introduction : Dear Buddha Dharma friends* very happy, peaceful and blissfull first days of January 2010. in 2010 Alive Dharma teachings will be sent every 1st and 3rd Sunday in every month . There will be enough time and space to study the teachings and apply them in daily life. Today on the anniversary of Kyabje Dudjom RinpocheII Visual Dharma is enclosed. Thank you for rating *****, favoring, sharing, embedding and commenting- to increase enlightened energy in this world. Sarwa mangalam: All Blessings . Please read further on www.buddhadharmaobfinternational.wordpress.com Heritage of mankind, with Dharma Art photo, connected with this week A-live teaching.

II.Buddhist spiritual * religious activities

2.1.Rainbow Lights : Interview with Lama Tara Tulku Drimed Drolkhar Rinpoche

“When thoughts dissolve you gaze at the rainbow light.

True love, Infinite, without duality,

Complete silence , Purity, spontaneity.”

Mangala Konchok Norbu : Your eminence, you wrote this Dharma verse 12 years ago, on  the 11th anniversary of Kyabje Dudjom Rinpoche

II.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CqBphGFzmW0

Tara Tulku : Yes, it just naturally appeared in my awareness after observing two rainbow spheres around the morning sun. The verse contain all keys and meanings of Atiyoga * Dzogpa chenpo essence lineage : Purity (Tib. Kadak), Spontaneity /(Lhundrup) and Without duality (Yermed). This Dharma verse and Vision are  connected with first Vision of Todgal practice, spontaneous leap-over. All who see such Lights will be liberated  from samsara. One only needs to be sensitive enough….

M.K. Norbu : Do you often teach with Dharma verses , Rinpoche ?

Tara Tulku : Those teachings that have Dharma poetry are more direct. Such teachings point out directly enlightened Buddha nature, present in all beings. I try to use every opportunity to introduce that enlightened Buddha nature in simple and direct ways, be it through Visual Dharmas or through written teachings.

M.K.Norbu : So you don´t like intellectual teachings a lot , Rinpoche ?

Tara Tulku: No, not so much. There is always danger to become intellectual and uncreative, uninspired. True Dharma practice makes us creative and inspired, awakening deep faith in  Buddhas and their Lineage. Intellectual teachings are just like instructions how to drive the car, or how to cook the food , how to make zen gardening, for example. But they are not actual teachings and masterpieces themselves. I try to teach authentic Buddha Dharma without obscuration of race, nationality, politics or social position-this Dharma is available to all. We respect the words of Guru Padmasambhava and are not selling the Dharma. We don´t threat sacred Dharma as merchandise. Therefore we are creative and inspiring , because blessings of Buddhas and Bodhisattvas of ten directions always abide with us. These  Dharmas are fresh and A-live , with A symbolizing natural state of Dharmakaya. They arise also from meditative experiences  of Atiyoga*Dzogpa chenpo essence lineage of the Sound*Light of Dharmata.

M.K. Norbu : But many people feel very proud of being intellectuals with many fancy ideas ….

Tara Tulku : That´s true. Such people are so much attached to Tibetan grammar for example, teaching through etymological way …. It is just like instruction how to use the computer : instructions can be written in many different languages , not only one. It is not the instruction that is valuable , it is actually the laptop . Instruction without the laptop is almost useless. After one learns how to use the laptop, one does not read the instructions  any more. One advances on the path by creative work on the laptop, not by reading the instructions…

Atiyoga master Shri Singha prophecized about the dream of Tibetan translator Vairocana – that in the future time precious Dzogchen teachings will be just like “incense lingering in an empty box”.  We are avoiding this pitfall : 45 Visual Dharmas presented on www.youtube.com/OpenBuddhistForum present authentic, creative and inspiring Dharmas who have extensive supportive teachings with bibliography, notes and e-learning curriculum. These Dharmas for new millennium are not “incense lingering in an empty box”. They are true spiritual treasures – Heritage of mankind.

M.K.Norbu : Rinpoche, you are continuing the Atiyoga essence lineage of Ayu Khandro Dorje Paldron who lived in Tibet from 1839-1953, at the end of her long life accomplishing the Rainbow body. How are you satisfied with your Dharma work in this regard ?

Tara Tulku: Ayu Khandro Dorje Paldron was also a tertön or hidden treasure discoverer who had special connection with Buddha Padmasambhava.  Her mind terma of Wisdom Dakini Siamukha is known. All her other Dharma works are almost unknown, which is a pitty, because she was such accomplished Atiyoga master, living for more then 50 years at the retreat house near the river in East Tibet. As her  biography published in the book Women of Wisdom shows, it was Ayu Khandro`s  enlightened intention that her Dharmas reach and spread also on other continents.

It is the same with hidden treasures  of Buddha Padmasambhava : to think that they exist only in Tibet, would be too narrow- minded….

M.K.Norbu : Some people think that V.I.P. or Very Important Persons must be distant in order to make themselves  more precious ….

Tara Tulku: Yes, this is well know : distance is formula of all bussiness people. But we are not practicing distance : our Visual Dharmas are very close , available to every being .  Buddhas and Bodhisattvas  are  never distant : they are always presennt and their enlightened energy shines in all directions and times. True spiritual master has compassion and is not distant.  Wisdom light is warm and compassionate like the rays of the sun. Rainbow lights show enlightened masters very clearly : even after they pass away and come back to this saha world, on their anniversaries there can be rainbow spheres visible in the sky, as it was during the Vision on  the 11th anniversary of Dudjom Rinpoche II. He was one of great Nyingma masters and mystics , often writing Vajra verses and poetry.

M.K.Norbu: Rinpoche, how are you satisfied with development of Buddha Dharma OpenBuddhistForum channel on youtube ?

Tara Tulku: We all can be satisfied with the Dharma work done in 2008 and 2009. First year we did not have swift internet connection, only mobile one, which was very slow and often  broke down. But in 2008 we uploaded around 36 Visual Dharmas ! Other nine followed in 2009. Because of slow internet  connection in 2008 we did not have much involvement in the community-we just focused in our Dharma work. In 2009 we had a lot of interactions with the world-wide community. Inside statistics clearly show significant progress of our beneficial Dharma work : video uploads views increase from 173.180 to 416.500 in one year; subscribers from 309 to 826 and friends  from 69 to 736. With more than 16.500 channel views we can be happy and we hope that our channel & Visual Dharmas will be embeded to still more sites , bringing positive energy everywhere. 2009 was year of devoted and concentrated Dharma work  benefiting  beings.

M.K.Norbu : Alive Dharma teachings were published almost every Sunday in 2009  – there are now 61 Alive Dharma teachings published at www.MySpace.com/BuddhaDharma_OBFI and around 42 at www.buddhadharmaobfinternationakl.wordpress.com Heritage of mankind. Some also appear  on other social networks. Rinpoche, will you continue with Alive Dharma teachings every Sunday in 2010 ?

Tara Tulku : In  2010 Alive Dharma teachings will be prepared only every 1st and 3rd Sunday in a month, not every Sunday. This will give us all more time and space to develop seven programmes of Buddha Dharma equaly, among them Buddha Dharma charity, helping Sagar Rinpoche´s Buddhist school for orphan children in Nepal. We hope that many more sponsors will join Buddha Dharma  charity. Worldwide friends  will have more time to study and apply Alive Dharma teachings in their lives. For some of them such swift “tempo” of four teachings in a month was surely too demanding . We will also multiply the blessings from Visual Dharmas by sending them throughout the world on special days of Buddhist lunar calendar. Many Visual Dharmas have close connections with special days of Medicine Buddhas, Arya Tara, Guru Padmasambhava, Manjushri, Buddha Amitabha, Vajrasattva, Vajrakilaya…. To send these Visual Dharmas on coresponding days multiplies the enlightened energy in the world.

M.K.Norbu: So you feel, Rinpoche, that with Visual Dharmas you and we all who take part in this Dharma work, are nurturing sentient beings, as Kyabje Thinley Norbu Rinpoche wrote in the Invocation of Arya Tara  nine years ago ? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K6pDvHf2qgo

Tara Tulku : Yes, I believe so. Kyabje Thinley Norbu Rinpoche, with whom I studied Atiyoga * Dzogchen  from fall 1999 till 2005, gave me a lot of inspiration, creativity and encouragements. Visual Dharma with verses from Rinpoche´s White sail – Offering praise was created at that time http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w1kIQn33DDM http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WF2l2moqpS4 In spring 2000 I received transmission of Atiyoga  * Dzogchen essence lineage of Samantabhadra-Vajrasattva-Garab Dorje through Kyabje Thinley Norbu Rinpoche. There is inspired Visual Dharma : Nyingma Vajrayana Buddhism http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2Gle8o9RVHg

We all pray for health and long life of Thinley Norbu Rinpoche.

While devotedly serving the teachings of Buddhas and Bodhisattvas, following noble examples of Mandarava and Yeshe Tshogyal, upholding and protecting the teachings of Buddhas arose naturaly by promoting ten enlightened activities, as advised in Vajra words of Buddha Padmasambhava.

M.K.Norbu : What are your visions for the future, Rinpoche ?

Tara Tulku : Astrologers predict conjunction of our Sun with the center of the gallaxy Milky way, on winter equinox 2012. It is important to remember this date . It is said that such constellations happen only every 26.000 years. At last such constellation cave men developed themselves toward more developed  human beings ! Humanity must make significant spiritual progress in next 3 years : this can happen by avoiding eating meat and to avoid killing of animals for food ! We believe that Visual Dharmas – empowered with the Sound* Light of Dharmata – are helping humanity to become less egocentric, more enlightened, wise and compassionate.

M.K.Norbu : What is the role of individual internet user in this spiritual process , Rinpoche ?

Tara Tulku: Everyone can become vegetarian, saving lives of animals. Everyone can contribute drop of wisdom to the Heritage of mankind : practice, pray and meditate according to Visual Dharmas; study , comment, rate******, share and embed them like very many have already done. In such simple but effective ways everyone brings peace, wisdom and loving kindness to this planet Earth. It is uniques Healing Art and Wisdom without borders J

M.K.Norbu: Collective meditations and prayers go on already from 1988. Will they continue also in 2010 ?

Tara Tulku: Of course . Dharma practice means unimpeded continuity. After one is directly introduced to primordially  pure Buddha nature, hearable*visible with Sound*Light of Dharmata, Dharma contemplation never stops : until complete and perfect enlightenment of Dharmakaya Buddha Samantabhadra. To nourish that seed – sprout  – toward blossoming lotus of Enlightenment , there are collective prayers and meditations according to Visual Dharmas – every Sunday afternoon from 4-5 pm (GMT +1) or according to your local time. At that time I also give direct introduction to natural Sound*Light of Dharmata, your Buddha nature. Actively participating in meditations and prayers means to nourish one´s seed-sprout of enlightenment, to accomplish complete and perfect Buddhahood of Samantabhadra.

M.K.Norbu: Rinpoche, you are also actively promoting gender equality in Buddhism . Why is this Millennium goal of United nations: Gender equality and empowerment of women , so  important ?

Tara Tulku: Together with saving lives of animals and teaching about vegetarianism to achieve world peace, there is another aspect of my Dharma work : Gender equality. In  spiritual development of humanity till 2015 people  must get rid off and liberate themselves  from all patriarchal ways  of thinking  and practice gender equality. This spiritual process , supported by astrological and astronomical constellation of the Sun with conjunction with the center of the Milky way, has to do with opening of the heart chakra. In Buddhism we teach and apply the Bodhicitta – unselfish Love. Opening of the heart chakra is sometimes difficult for men, because their upbringing was mostly patriarchal. Because of wrong upbringing such people are often entangled with anger and violence, including religious violence ! There is religious imperative for the equality of women. Wise men like former US president Jimmy Carter The Carter Centre site fully recognized the importance of gender equality in religions as well as in all fields of life. Successful  petition of fourfoldsangha.org/petition-text shows very clear results!  This spiritual process is painful only  for those who are afraid of loosing worldly power and prestige ! Other wise men and women are fully engaged in positive changes of new millennium.

M.K.Norbu : Your eminence, thank you for kind Dharma conversation.

Tara Tulku: You are welcome . With the Wish-granting prayer of Samantabhadra may all be truly accomplished and enlightened in the palace of Dharmadhatu : Kunzang Gongpa Zhangtal http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8W91pUTf2Jc

III.INTERNATIONAL INSTITUTE FOR CONTEMPORARY BUDDHIST STUDIES

3.1. Questions and answers :Nutier, France
Q.126 – What is the meaning of Nimmanarati devas ?
To truly understand the Devas please study in Wikipedia. The link is below.

DevaWikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Look up Deva or deva in Wiktionary, the free dictionary. Deva can refer to: A religious concept: Deva (Hinduism), Hindu deity or deities; Deva (Buddhism), …
en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Deva
Q.127 – If these devas delight in the sense objects of their own creation , do they create themselve their children as human beings ?
Devas or gods don´t create children as humans.

Q.128 Do human beings come from their creations too ?
Human beings are not devas creations. Human beings and devas have different karma.

Monotheistic religions teach that human beings are crteated by the Deva (God or gods), but the teaching about this  is different in Buddhism. Please study Visual Dharma- About Buddhism http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k2a0iFjgBJc

Q.129 – How long can they live in this heaven ?

They live in this heaven for millions of years, from human perspective. Finally when their good karma expire , they are reborn in lower realms of samasara. Lord Buddha is the enlightened Teacher of Gods and humans.

Dear venerable Sir , thank you so much for your nice response on my questions , and good provebs that I like .Yes , we are about 6 milliards on earth , we have not the same destiny , but we live together on only one earth .
Please enjoy my question , thank you .
Paranimmita-vasavatti Heaven , world of devas wieldind power over the creation of others . These devas enjoy sense pleasures created by others for them . Mara , the personification of delusion and desire , lives here .
Q.130 – What is the meaning of Paranimmita- vasavatti heaven ? To save space we just give link to the answer :

YouTube – Dhammaraso’s Channel

Paranimmitavasavatti Heaven , world of devas wieldind power over the creation of others . These devas enjoy sense pleasures created by others for them . …
http://www.youtube.com/user/Dhammaraso


Q.131 – When these devas enjoy sense pleasures created by others for them , what do they give back to others who offered ? Again such question can not be answered shortly. Here is selected bibliograpy :
Ven. Suvanno Mahatera – The 31 Planes of Existence

14 Oct 2009 … Paranimmitavasavatti Heaven World of devas wielding power over the creation of others. These devas enjoy sense pleasures created by others …
http://www.scribd.com
BooksReligion & Spiritualit

Q.132 – Is mara , the personification of delusion and desire the same as ( the Panca- mara ) ? Mara means individual ignorance and individual delussion which need to be purified by authentic Dharma practice : prayers, meditations, study of the Buddha Dharma.
Q.133 – What is the different of Mara and Asura ?

Asuras are jelaous gods  always fighting and quereling. The opposite of asura is all-acomplishing wisdom represented by Buddha Amoghasiddi. He symbolises the enlightened activity of all Buddhas.  For the asura mentalyty please read related teachings at Vajrakilaya tantra Gurkhukma, pure Vision dharma by Khenpo Jigme Phuntsog Rinpoche, who discovered this teaching at the Asura cave in Nepal.

Re: ATIYOGA * DZOGCHEN : BEYOND EGOCENTRIC WAYS Alive Dharma teaching, Dec 27, 2009

I have another question, how can I use meditation to uncover represed emotions or those that come on it’s own accord when I learn to meditate ?

Meditation is not method for using . Meditation first mean to be aware of one´s body position, one´s way of breathing and one´s thoughts. Repressed emotions like repressed anger unfold themselves in the meditation process. One just become aware of them. Meditation is great practice of awareness . With awareness of oneself as one is at the moment clarity and presence also develop. Meditation must be natural , without tensions, without exageration or excitements and without dullness. Just sit in comfortable bodily position and become aware of your breathing : slow, relaxed, peaceful. When you calm down, it is very beneficial to recite Verses of prayers to Eight Noble aupicious ones http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dMJxMJPS5ZI or to chant Namo Amitabha http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ozKDpz_G3JQ , as shown in Visual Dharmas- spiritual teachings for third millenium

Comment by Debra Carol Beatty on WeWomen.ning.com Visual Dharma: Women in Buddhism

Dearest Lama,Thank you so much for this great teaching. It is an inspiration to all women involved in Dharma practice. It is something that I have felt in my heart but it is the first time I have heard words like these in all my years as a practitioner. Thank you so much for keeping us in your heart. debra

Comment by Her Eminence Tara Tulku Rinpoche

Dear Debra, your words are truly beautiful . I am happy when Visual Dharma: Women in Buddhism encourage and inspires Dharma practitioners 🙂 to accomplish liberation and enlightenment. Religions often discriminate women , but this was not the aim and motivation of Lord Buddha Shakyamuni and all enlightened masters after Him.

Dec 24, 2009 12:48 AM The Gift of Love
Whether one believes in a religion or not,
and whether one believes in rebirth or not,
there isn’t anyone who doesn’t appreciate kindness and compassion.
~Dalai Lama~
I Agree Today To Be The Gift of Love.
I Agree to Feel Deeply Love for Others independent of anything they are expressing,
saying, doing, or being.
I Agree to Allow Love As I Know It To Embrace My Whole Body And Then to Just Send It To Them Silently and Secretly.I agree to feel it, accept it, breathe it into every cell of my body on each in-breath And On Each Out-Breath Exhale any feeling unlike love.I will repeat this breathing process multiple times until I feel it Fully and completely then consciously amplify in me the feeling of love and project It to others
as the gift of love. This is my secret agreement –no one else Is to know it.
wishing the Peace and Love this Holiday Season be with you always. Johann

Jan 1, 2010 2:06 AM  from Buddha Dharma Friend  Johann  MySpace

Looking back on the months gone by,As a new year starts and an old one ends,
We contemplate what brought us joy,And we think of our loved ones and our friends.
Recalling all the happy times,Remembering how they enriched our lives,
We reflect upon who really counts,As the fresh and bright new year arrives.
And when I ponder those who do,I immediately think of you.
Thanks for being one of the reasons I’ll have a Happy New Year!
Wishing You the Warmest Regards and Blessings For a Wonderful New Year
All My Love – Johann

On the Path of Atiyoga*Dzogpachenpo :

Natural liberation

This alive Knowledge comes from the blessings of Atiyoga*Dzogpa chenpo essence lineage of Nyingma Vajrayana Buddhism, vividly present in the Sound*Light of Dharmata in unimpeded continuity. … Relax in natural state – beyond egocentric ways. Breath deeply and relax completely… Relax your body and feel blissful energy of primordial state. Relax your thoughts in inner silence. Spaciousness expand. Beyond egocentric ways. Without fear – don´t remain in dualism of I and you. Expand your heart…Don´t be afraid of non-dual awareness. Abide in this non-dual liberation with simplicity of a child… or those who truly love for the first time…Appreciate and respect natural liberation, simplicity. Remember zen saying : “Those who drink water know exactly if it´s cold or warm.”

In blissful Oneness leave concepts about self-liberation behind. As Sensei Morihei Ueshiba said : Learn and forget ! (7) By leaving all wrong concepts about self-liberation behind, be A-live : Vajra Body is wisdom Body of the deity; Vajra speech is wisdom energy of the Deity; Vajra awareness is wisdom display of the Deity. Sublime mandala of primordial Buddha Samantabhadra*Samantabhadri.

Since it is uncompouded ,

It is primordialy pure.

Since its natural bliss is unimpeded,

It is spontaneous presence.

Rest in that Oneness.

That alone is primordial Buddha

Samantabhadra*Samantabhadri :

Innate natural Sound*Light of Dharmata,

Essence of all knowledge-holders.

3.2. QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS :

Maorawrath USA

Do buddhist have any tools to fight againts demonic posetion? Can meditation prevent or expel demons? Can a person increase their chakras through  meditation and how?

Prayers and meditations are the best tool  or antidote against demonic posessions. Prayers and meditations surely prevent and expel demons. Prayers and meditations published on our channel create positive, en- light-ened energy as protection . First step on spiritual path is to avoid eating meat and become life-long vegetarian, to avoid alcohol,drugs and tobacco. As Kyabje Dudjom Rinpoche II. taught while compiling teachings from hidden treasures – many demons are “embeded” in drugs and tobacco. Even if one is non-smoker, it is good to avoid places where people smoke. In this view it is completely irresponsible that the  state of California legalised the use of marihuana for so called “medicinal purposes”, with 400.000 people having cards which allow them to buy marihuana in shops! This is truly not responsible health care… Then purify your energy with the help of Buddhist wholesome medicine (vegetarian diet, herbal formulas, Buddhist Chi Kung workout etc). This helps you to advance on spiritual path . Prayers and meditations which we teach open up the chakras in a safe way. Try to practice daily some of our Visual Dharmas- spiritual teachings for new millenium : Verses of prayer to Eight Auspicious ones, Vajrasattva 100-syllable mantra for purification and others. These meditations and prayers are like wholesome medicine which should be practiced with devotion , diligence and joy. Wishing you successful spiritual practice ….

Dear venerable Sir , please enjoy my question , thank you .
Tusita heaven , the world of contented devas . A realm of pure delight and gaiety . Bodhisattas abide here prior to their final human birth .
Q.122 – What is the meaning of Tusita heaven ?
Tusita heaven (Tibetan: Ga-den)  is heaven of satisfaction. It is the fourth of six heavens in the realm of desire (Sanskrit: Kammadhatu). Bodhisattvas are reborn in Tusita heaven before their last rebirth in human realm when they attain perfect and complete Buddhahood. Tusita heaven consist of inner and outer court. Inner court is abode of Bodhisattva Maitreya . From Tusita heaven each buddha descends to earth. It is present place of next buddha, Maitreya.  Our fortunate aeon (Sanskrit : Bhadra kalpa) will have 1002 Buddhas.

Q.123 – Is Bodhisattva a former Buddha’s name in Tusita heaven before becoming Siddharta as a human being ?

Bodhisattva means son or daughter of the Buddha. Every Bodhisattva has already awakened Bodhi mind or Bodhicitta . Jataka tales teach about Lord Buddha Shakyamuni´s former lives when He was a Bodhisattva.

Q.124 – As Tusita heaven is the realm of pure delight and gaiety , why should  they not go directly into Nirvana after the death ?

Going into Nirvana is Theravada Buddhist teaching.Nirvana is not some special place to go, but rather state of Enlightenment. As today´s Visual Dharma: Wish-granting prayer of Samantabhadra- teaches : “Appearance and existence, samsara and nirvana have all one base. But two paths lead to two results. In Mahayana we teach about emanations or Nirmanakaya .” Read the teaching in description of Wish-granting Prayer of Samantabhadra.
Q.125 – In this meaning , is human realm the best for those who want to achieve Nirvana? May peace and happiness be upon you always ! nutier

Human realm is somehow in between : it is wrong to suppose that there are no Dharmas in upper realms of samsara. Every realm has its “own” buddha. Atiyoga*Dzogchen teachings with 64.millions of tantras are taught also in heavenly realm, as explained in the Penetration of Sound tantra (Tibetan: Dra Thal Gyur). Each and very buddha of this fortunate aeon (Sanskrit: Bhadra kalpa) has listened to this special Dharma.

After rebirth in human realm one must have freedoms and endowments to practice pure Buddha Dharma and to “attain” Nirvana – to accomplish one´s Buddha potentials within. Without freedoms and endowments one can not practice the Dharma and one´s Buddha potentials remain dormant, undiscovered . As Kyabje Thinley Norbu Rinpoche advised : Changing bad habbits into good habbits : this means to practice the Dharma. Meat eating is bad habbit and everyone who wish to “attain” Nirvana must change this bad habbit into saving lives of animas and become vegetarians.
