The beginning of Saga Dawa

Tuesday may 31. 2022 is the beginning of Saga Dawa – on the Tibetan Buddhist Calendar.Tuesday, June14. is the day of the Buddha’s enlightenment – a very special day. If you do practice on this day, it is more powerful than practicing on other days. This day is also called Parinirvana Day and Buddha Shakyamuni’s Birthday.The whole month is a special time. If we do practice during this time, every virtue is multiplied by 100,000! If we make negative action, it is also multiplied by 100,000! So it is especially important during these days for good intention and not making any negativity. if you would like, this is a good time to make a special vow – such as eating no meat, drinking no liquor, having no sexual activity, abandoning non-virtuous talk, etc. Because this month is also the time that many insects and spiders, etc are being alive because of the weather becoming more warm, do dedication and aspiration for all beings because these beings have a short lifetime and will not be alive for very long.All practice is more powerful at this time of the year. We are human beings and we have more freedom than other beings so we need to share this good opportunity with all beings.

Tibetan Buddhist Meditation Class:

West Palm Florida 2/25/2022
Teaching Subject: The Excellent Path to Enlightenment: A Short Preliminary Practice. The essence of all Buddhist Teachings includes Nongdro, which is fundamental to all levels of Buddhist practice. As normal sentient beings we have lots of obstacles coming from inner emotion. How can we deal with this emotion? This antidote comes from Buddha Wisdom teaching. Just like an expensive car is useless without gas, if we do not learn from this spiritual teaching and practice, we continue to unknowingly make mistakes, with our mind always up & down – it is impossible to become good human being.

DECLARATION

  1.  A) I wish to share a few important guidelines with regard to the misuse of my humble name by different Buddhist Monks, Yogis and Lamas. These are ones who are frequently visiting Taiwan or have settled in Southeast Asia  or are in different countries. I make this plea despite my repeated appeals to everyone. It was a big surprise to me that several Buddhist Lamas (even ones I have never met or ever given any teaching), are using my humble name continuously for their personal monetary benefit. This is an extreme matter of shame and also a big fraud. Wearing monks robes while cheating and misleading lay people is a serious crime and also breaks all of Buddha’s principle Vows. This is sowing serious negative Karma for yourself and at the same time, ruining Buddhism. I really feel sorry for such gross negative activities by Buddhist Lamas, Khenpos, Yogis or Monks residing abroad. I strongly object all those who are using my name directly or indirectly by any means.

My constant guidelines and advice to Buddhists,(either a Re-incarnate Lama, Yogi, Khenpo or an ordinary Monk) whom I happen to meet from day to day, are always the same and are quoted below:

  1. If you are a serious Buddhist student and Zogpachenpo’s practitioner, you should spend your life in retreat with minimal comfort and give up all attachment to luxury.
  2. Do not waste your time in touring all foreign counties including Taiwan, which is fruitless.
  1. Do not attempt to beg for donations using excuses such as construction of a big monastery, Stupa, Zangdogpelri, Bumtsog or big offerings or setting up of a new Buddhist center etc.
  1. Do not sell out Zogpachenpo under different pretexts for your own personal benefit.
  2. Always be humble and do not try to expose yourself in front of others even if you may have little knowledge in Buddhism.
  3. Do not cheat others in the name of Zogpachenpo by giving initiations or teachings which you have never received yourself from a legitimate high Lama or Guru.
  4. Finally, I, myself never have even the slightest desire to visit any foreign country nor have any specific reason to do so.
  5. In the past, I have experienced several occasions, that despite of my unwillingness and objection, re-incarnate Lamas, Yogis, Khenpos and Monks, those who have come to see me, are taking photographs with me by force under different pretext. Due to electronic supremacy, people are coming with different types of electronic devices so they may record my voice or take my photograph. It is not always easy to detect these actions, especially at my age.
  6. Hence, I notify all the Buddhist followers all over the world, DO NOT, I repeat, DO NOT believe any person who is in possession of such photographs or making false claims that he or she is my student in the past or present. Please, do not believe just by showing a photograph or seeing or hearing a video, etc. Therefore, I, the undersigned with full consent, reject such types of false claims made by different Buddhist Centers, Monasteries, Institutes, or Re-incarnate Lamas, Khenpos, Yogis and/or any ordinary Monks etc.

In conclusion, once again, I sincerely appeal to all Buddhist followers all over the world and Buddhist Centers  including the people who are taking interest in Buddhist religion, kindly take note of my above cited humble declaration and suggestions. After seeing this article in the  newspapers I hope everyone will clearly understand me and my personal opinion hereafter.

Dated: April 19, 2007      Thanking you,

Declaration by: CHATRAL SANGAY DORJE

What really bring to meaningful

What really bring to meaningful life in buddhism teaching ?

We think of ordinary life eat, sleep and shit these three kinds of activity everyday we use but meaningless because those things does not matter even intelligent or not intelligent as result is same thing. Buddhism teaching show you some  meaningful life direction. For example businessman money is not permanent because they have a lot of  money but sometimes money is gone and becoming very poor. Same way beautiful body is not permanent even right now looks beautiful but sooner or later lots of wrinkle on the face, this is a significant of impermanent not really meaningful of rich or beautiful which is always changing.

Buddhism teaching is technique of how can have  cause of  happiness and result unchangeable Buddha hood. If we don’t have kindness for others but least kindness for self  can get  you really different result. Actually, during 7th century buddhist master Shanti Deva said all of the joy or happiness coming from wishing for others. All of the miserable sufferings, unhappiness coming from own egoistic.

How can do daily practice for meditation and  supplication needs authentic guru show you some secret method of  significant your own mind can blow some wisdom. This is the meaningful life coming from yourselves not from outer. That’s why buddhism teaching is so important of making precious life.

How to become a good person

(two page pdf)
WordsofAdviceonMoneyAttachment

How can someone become a good person and how can they become positive and nonattached?A good person doesn’t show two faces or two types of bodily conduct depending on their audience. A good person’s mind does not go up and down easily; the mind of a good person is a very stable mind.

A good person’s speech is always truthful and honest; and a good person’s speech is not hypocritical: for example, saying, “People should not steal.” and then, the next day saying, “It would be virtuous to rob the corner store.”

Even very highly regarded leaders of religion who indulge in these three negative methods will lose members of their religious-community each year, even daily, due to these three improper methods.

These three flaws: hypocrisy, mental instability and two-sidedness will cause you to lose the trust and partnership of others; and it causes others to no longer hold hope or good-will towards you.

If people no longer perpetuate these three flaws, no longer use these three negative methods of interacting, then the whole world would become a better world with more happiness, more Love and Compassion and respect for everyone.

The root of ineffective ‘politics-as-usual’ is the thinking of: “For oneself to have victory the other must take a loss.”

This heart-wish is the root of modern-day politics and consequentially, this type of ill-wishing has developed into the globalized-mess of modern politics we see today.                 If these three flaws were to be eliminated then politics-as-usual would not exist.

How a Person can be non-attached and positive (An unattached, positive attitude)

Everyday people mostly meditate on how to get more and more money. And this is because modern society has developed mostly along material lines and therefore the meditation on money has palpable consequence.

However, just as the more people drink of salty the more thirsty they get, people who act from attachment are never satisfied no matter the physical results. Always wishing for happiness but engaging in negative thoughts, words and actions always brings suffering.

If using Buddhist teachings one lives a non-attached, very simple life then they live both easily and comfortably. Those who are ignorant will do the opposite and automatically bring about suffering within their lives.

However, if we make enough money and live a good life with no ‘night-and-day meditation on money’ then we are living very healthy lives and allowing positivity to grow; but if we accept in our lives an attached, obsessive stance on making money we invite trouble. For example:

When a person uses shampoo, all the dirt washes to the drain; just like this, shampoo partners, either of wives or husbands who hold this only-for-money attitude can clean their credit cards and bank account right out and just like a butterfly disappear.

–my aspiration is for this message and advice to bring benefit to everyone, just like the sun and moon by their nature always give light to everyone. -May it be Auspicious-

Dearest, closest friends of so many years,

I have seen some of my dearest, closest friends of so many years, who in general are always naturally beautiful people both on the outside and within, for the longest time always looking for relationships with only successful partners such as a doctor or airline pilot; but whoever they meet, those friendships and budding relationships never last too long. Their honest attempts at interpersonal happiness have always failed and then as if by automation, my friends suffer and become depressed. Upon seeing this, as a teacher it is my responsibility to give advice and guidance that will fix the problem, and I truly feel sick at heart.
The best advice I have to give is to not date or marry for money but to date or marry for affection’s sake.
Friendships and relationships based on both partners actually caring for the other are the types of friendships founded on the very best basis. When a friendship or romantic relationship is based on monetary matters then it is almost always bound to fail, like a weak unstable building during a superficial disturbance.
It is better that everyone spend their time with each other caring for the other person in the relationship. This is meritorious and grows healthy, strong relationships that do not go wrong but instead unfold both naturally and with ease. When an improperly based relationship is not like virtuous like this, then that relationship deteriorates to a situation similar to living in a small box or being trapped in an elevator, full of paranoia with heavy personal boundaries, where people look over their backs with fright, are never relaxed, never comfortable and are far too easily disturbed over matters that are actually trivial.
So many people either ignorant or naive, are always looking for tokens of worldly attainment and riches; however considering this with logic, money alone can not make you into a good person. Also, consider- having an abundance of money is not always healthy, It can lead to a person acting just like a butterfly, always easily being able to go here and there with out any discipline or inner purpose.
On the other hand, a focus on being a good person can help you have enough to live by and abundance. True Buddhist people, those who are not attached to money, still require and need to work for money like everyone else; but, because they don’t meditate 24 hours daily on the subject of making money, they actually have little or no attachment to matters like this.
Those who are, foolishly attached to money, meditate non-stop, 24 hours a day on subjects like monetary and other types of gain; because of this, they are more than willing to engage in floods of negative actions like: lying, cheating, theft, and plotting to murder others should they think it would serve their pocket well. Just as they are doing these negative things, entirely for worldly gain, they are in that same instant creating brand-new, heavy and bad karmas. It is just like every being in a plentiful Savannah rushing into the open mouths of crocodiles at the riverbanks. Once trapped in a crocodile’s mouth, suddenly it becomes very difficult to enjoy true happiness. It is a similar situation in samsara with attachments that revolve around money.
Some of us turn people down and then wait and wait for the right successful partner, a doctor, a pilot or whatever to come along, but time passes by and we become old with out having loved anyone deeply and without having lived completely.
I write these words, not with the intention to criticize, but with hope that it might be of help to someone either too young to know yet or to whom this advice might currently apply. My wish is these words are helpful to all of using living today, in this very moment.
How many times do we enjoy the momentary things in this life?
It is just like a dream.
However Long or short a dream we may enjoy is,
It is still a dream,
the product of a conceptual and deluded mind.
All the time we think deluded experiences truly exist
but this belief of ours is not really true
Experiences are just like bubbles in water
And a True Phenomena does not actually exist
Phenomena are always deluded.

New Dharma Class Schedule, may 2017
Nagarjuna, 7th century Buddhist enlightened master. He gives a useful explanation of positive attitude and logical advice for kings and everyone. How can a Human Being bring peace and become a warm heart to share with everyone? Humans have more potential for intelligence than other animals, but are using this intelligence in a negative way. Obstacles come from identification with one’s ego and diluted mind. Many beings are careless and unaware of what is happening nearby. Buddhist meditation introduces our own natural mind. Problems will be resolved by great medicine: love, compassion, and increasing wisdom.
Class Continued from Fall 2017. Class begins 6:00 p.m.Book (opt.) Golden Zephyr translated by Leslie Kawamura.
