Monthly Dharma Teaching # 22 from Palpung Publications

Warm Heart Open Mind (3)
His Holiness the Dalai Lama

Now I would like to mention some of my basic views or thoughts. Wherever I go I always try to promote, and try to make a contribution regarding the promotion of human values. Because, I believe, in order to be a happy human being, in order to be a happy family I think one very important factor are the good human qualities such as a sense of caring, a sense of responsibility and a sense of community. These I feel are a foundation of a happy life.

Then money, material facilities, these are also a factor for a happy life, but I feel these are secondary. Because if someone who has all the material facilities yet mentally I think too many negative emotions constantly occurring, then that person will not be a happy person. On the other hand if the person is really warm-hearted and mentally at peace then even if their living standard is difficult still that person can be a very happy person. On the one hand mental peace can subdue physical difficulties but mental unhappiness cannot be subdued by material comfort. So therefore the mental quality or the peace of mind I feel is the most important factor for a happy life.

Monthly Dharma Teaching # 21 from Palpung Publications

Palpung Publications Banner

The Buddha Nature in the Context of the Four Noble Truths
the 3rd Jamgon Kongtrul Rinpoche

There are many different religions in the world. Despite this variety, we see that all religions share a common goal in that they strive to be of benefit to living beings. This is the one feature all religions have in common. When we look at the various traditions and see the way they seek to help others, we find there is quite a variety of approaches. There is a considerable difference among religious traditions in the methods of practice to bring into experience what is the heart of each. While it is reasonable to say that the aim of all religions is concerned with reality, with the way things ultimately are, it is conclusive that this isn't something that varies or changes. The way reality is described and presented is what varies a great deal from one tradition to another. Very briefly, the heart of the matter is that every religious tradition, and a follower's practice of any particular religion, is really directed towards helping others

Dharma for the Urban Professional
by the 12th Chamgon Tai Situ Rinpoche

What are the differences between urban professionals and rural unprofessionals? Actually rural unprofessionals are not that busy, they have lots of time and do not know that much, therefore they do not have that much confusion. Then urban professionals are very busy, have lots of stress and know a lot, therefore they have a lot to be confused about. If you don't know much then you don't have much confusion, but if you know a lot then you can get confused. Confusion is like being mixed up. For example, if you don't have too many books, just a few, then you cannot get them mixed up—you can find your books very easily if you only have three. But if you have a thousand books and you don't put them on your shelf properly then you cannot find the book that you want to find because you have too many. Then that is stress—trying to find them, not finding them, finding the wrong one. When I looked at the request for this subject and tried to define who an urban professional is and who is not an urban professional then this simple thing came out.

But whether you are a rural unprofessional or an urban professional the importance of dharma practice is equal, there is no difference. Because when you say important and not important, from that context it is important for both—urban professionals have lots of suffering and rural unprofessional also have lots of suffering, and both of them have limitless potential, the Buddha potential; therefore the importance of the dharma practice is equal. But somehow, when you say importance, such as a real, immediate kind of desperate need, then I would say urban professionals will get lots of immediate dharma benefit when they practice. Then vice-versa, rural unprofessional will get long term dharma benefit when they practice. For long term dharma benefit both are equal, but urban professionals will get a more immediate kind of dharma benefit.

New Book - Mahamudra, Emaho

Dear Friends,

Now available:

Mahamudra, Emaho – How Amazing

By His Eminence Garchen Rinpoche

140 pages. US$16.50

The practice of Mahamudra can only be accomplished through the profound blessings of a qualified Lama, and in order to receive these blessings the disciple must also possess certain qualities of sincere devotion, diligence, and wisdom. Before engaging in the practice of Mahamudra, it is necessary to engage in both the common and uncommon preliminary practices. The Fivefold Path of Mahamudra consists of Refuge and Bodhicitta, Deity Yoga, Guru Yoga, Mahamudra, and Dedication. When Jigten Sumgon received the teachings from Phagmo Drupa, Jigten Sumgon wanted only to practice Mahamudra and nothing else. Phagmo Drupa told Jigten Sumgon that this was not enough, saying, "Mahamudra is like a lion, but the fivefold path is his eyes."

Warm Heart Open Mind (2)
His Holiness the Dalai Lama

I think judging from the past experiences, and awareness about what happened in the past, I think now there is a greater chance or opportunity for this century to be more peaceful, more harmonious. I think you can make a great contribution regarding that. So now here as a conclusion I want to say one sentence which is that everywhere, children and students pay much attention to education, to the development of the brain. It's wonderful, it's very good and very important. But sometimes they don't pay equal attention to the development of a warm heart. Now please think more about this while you study, while you are getting brain development, think also about the sense of caring for one another; a compassionate sort of heart. And that's very essential.

New Book by HH Karmapa

Dear Friends,

We have a new book available:

Compassion NOW! by HH 17th Karmapa

104 pages US$13.50

Too often compassionate feeling is left inactive. Compassion NOW! is a work not only focused on how love and compassion are the root of all Buddhist practices, but is a call to put these compassionate feelings into action in the world. From a teaching given in India in 2010, His Holiness the Seventeenth Karmapa sets forth that compassion for oneself is the starting point from which we can expand to other beings with whom we have a close connection and then further to an immeasurable compassion for all beings through the Mahayana practice of mind training, which he discusses with clarity and insight.

An overview of the Vajrayana method of meditation on Chenrezik, the bodhisattva of compassion, also is included, where His Holiness guides our attention to the central role of the practice: cultivating compassion.

The Jewel Ornament of Liberation
by His Holiness the 17th Karmapa

At the request of many international dharma students at the 2004 Kagyu Monlam Chenmo in Bodhgaya, His Holiness the XVIIth Karmapa, Ogyen Trinley Dorje, gave six teachings on Je Gampopa's classic text The Jewel Ornament of Liberation.

There are many reasons why we should rely on a spiritual friend; in particular we can look to both scriptures and logic for reasons. In the Prajnaparamita Sutras, the Bhagavan Buddha said that a spiritual friend is like a guide who can show us an unknown path or a boatman who can help us cross the water. Common sense tells us that a spiritual friend, the same as a guide on a journey, should know more than we do. If someone knows less than us we can't ask them things we need to know and they can't tell us anything we don't already know. Because of this a spiritual friend cannot be someone who knows less than you. It cannot be someone who knows as much as you either, in this case we would probably know what they know and he or she would know what we knew and our knowledge would not improve because of them. The individual we need as a spiritual friend obviously has to know more than us, then we can gain knowledge from them.

New Book

Shangpa Kagyu book cover



Dear Friends,

We have a new book available by Chamgon Kenting Tai Situpa:

Shangpa Kagyu Teachings

223 pages. US$23.50

In 2009 at the request of the present Yangsi Kalu Rinpoche, Chamgon Kenting Tai Situpa conducted the transmission of the entire Shangpa Kagyu initiation and reading transmission at Palpung Sherabling. This book contains the teachings given during this transmission.

The Shangpa Kagyu lineage is generally little known. It is often considered to be a secondary line of the Karma Kagyu lineage (the celebrated lineage of Marpa, Milarepa, Gampopa, and the Karmapas), but in fact these two lineages were born at about the same period in India, around the 10th century. The Karma Kagyu lineage begins with Tilopa and Naropa. The Shangpa Kagyu lineage begins with the latter's sister, the dakini Niguma, and the dakini Sukhasiddhi.

Stress Management
by the 12th Chamgon Tai Situ Rinpoche

 

I have been requested to speak on Shinay and Lhaktong and also something related to prayer, particularly to help people overcome something that these days is quite common, I think the medical term for it is stress. I personally don't have one word for it because one person's difficulty may not necessarily be another person's difficulty; things work differently for different people and that way I really don't know exactly what so-called stress is. But of course people get tired, people get confused, people are overwhelmed by other people's expectations or their own expectations of themselves, all kinds of things which become unreasonable. So an individual feels it and doesn't like it, doesn't appreciate it and would like to overcome and do away with it if possible, so I think that is what everybody calls stress.

 

According to Lord Buddha's teaching, if we look at the very beginning of Lord Buddha's teaching, the first noble truth that he taught was the truth of suffering, which means that every sentient being, as long as he or she is not free, then that person is not exempt from suffering and that person suffers one way or another. So it is not the individual potential that deserves suffering, on the contrary, it is because of the individual's lack of development of their potential and their lack of full usage of their potential that they are suffering. Therefore, the truth of suffering was the first noble truth that Buddha taught, and I am quite sure it will include stress.

Warm Heart Open Mind
by His Holiness the Dalai Lama

I'm going to explain something about the value of warm-heartedness. Firstly, in our daily life, of course everybody is concerned about their health. Now warm-heartedness makes the body elements more balanced, because warm-heartedness reduces fear and anxiety. So that's actually helpful for developing self-confidence and a sense of security which is very helpful for creating better balance of the body elements. Then I think everything including the blood circulation and digestion, sleep, everything will go very smoothly. So warm-heartedness is a very helpful way to keep our body healthy.

Sometimes my friends ask me what my secret is. They seem to see a healthy body. I reply saying: Nothing. No secret way, nothing. Perhaps I think my daily routine is generally more calm; more than that, I don't know. You see my time of getting up and also going to sleep and the time of lunch, these things, usually there is regularity. Yes, more regularity. I think that's perhaps one factor. Then I think a more important factor seems to lie in my mental state, which, in spite of some difficulties, some tragic sort of events, even my own illness or pain, remains quite calm.

Emptiness & Voidness
by the 12th Chamgon Tai Situ Rinpoche

I was requested to teach on emptiness and voidness. Actually the words emptiness and voidness are the same, I think. I say that because it is at the discretion of the earlier translators who decided to use the word emptiness instead of voidness for shunyata in Sanskrit and tongpa nyi in Tibetan. Therefore emptiness became the proper translation of shunyata and voidness became something else, but it could have been the other way round.

There are two verses, each with two sentences, from a very sacred text translated from Sanskrit to Tibetan, that describe exactly what emptiness is. The first two sentences say, "There is nothing which is not interdependent." Then the second two sentences say, "Therefore there is nothing which is not emptiness." So everything is interdependent; our mind and our body, our body and our senses, our mind and our thoughts, the outside world and this physical body – everything is interdependent. Other than the interdependent manifestation of everything you cannot find anything.

Thiksey Gompa of Ladakh is situated at a distance of approximately 18 km from the town of Leh. One of the most beautiful monasteries of Ladakh, it belongs to the Gelukpa Order of Buddhism. Sherab Zangpo of Stod got the Thiksey Monastery built for the first time, at Stakmo. However, later Spon Paldan Sherab, the nephew of Sherab Zangpo, reconstructed the monastery in the year 1430 AD. The new monastery was sited on a hilltop, to the north of Indus River.
Thikse Monastery Ladakh houses a temple, known as Lakhang Nyerma. This temple, built by Rinchen Zangpo, the Translator, is dedicated to Goddess Dorje Chenmo. A huge temple in its time, today it stands mostly in ruins. Apart from this temple, there are a number of other sacred shrines inside the monastery complex. The monastery also has a rich collection of numerous valuable artifacts and ancient relics.
Thiksey Gompa serves as the residence of approximately eighty monks. It has been served, for quite a long time, by the successive reincarnations of the Skyabsje Khanpo Rinpoche. The monastery also plays the host to Gustor ritual, organized from the 17th to 19th day of the ninth month of the Tibetan calendar. Sacred dances also form a part of this ritual, which takes place on an annual basis.

Stakna Monastery.

Stakna Gompa of Ladakh is situated on the right bank of the Indus River, at a distance of approximately 25 km from the town of Leh. The name, 'Stakna' literally means 'tiger's nose'. The monastery was so named because it was built on a hill, which is shaped just like a tiger's nose.
Stakna Monastery of Leh Ladakh owes its inception to Chosje Jamyang Palkar, the great scholar saint of Bhutan. It formed a part of the many religious estates offered by the Dharmaraja Jamyang Namgial to the saint, around 1580 AD.
The central image inside the monastery is that of the sacred Arya Avalokitesvara from Kamrup (Assam). Stakna belongs to the Dugpa order and serves as the residence of approximately 30 monks. The successive reincarnations of the Stakna Tulku continue to serve as the incumbents of the monastery, preserving the teachings of the Dugpa order. Stakna Gompa also has a number of monasteries attached to it, namely Mud and Kharu and those of Stakrimo, Bardan and Sani in Zanskar.
On entering the central courtyard, one comes across the Dukhang (main assembly hall). The head lama got seven feet high, silver gilted chorten erected inside the Dukhang, in the 1950s. The chorten comprises of a statue of the Buddha as well as numerous Buddhist texts. The left wall of the Dukhang is adorned with three new paintings, those of the Tsephakmad (a Buddhist deity), Sakyamni (the Historical Buddha) and Amchi (the Medical Buddha).
The wall opposite to the Dukhang entrance is also painted with three images, those of a Bodhisattva, Padma Sambhava (8th century Indian Buddhist scholar and translator of Buddhist texts into Tibetan) and Tshong-san-gompo (an early king of Tibet). To the right of the hall are the statues of Sakyamuni (Past Buddha), the Present Buddha and Maitreya (Future Buddha). And, the throne of the head lama of Stakna lies on the left side of the Dukhang

The Six Paramitas
by the 12th Chamgon Tai Situ Rinpoche

The six paramitas are generally the practice of a bodhisattva—it is a practice of the Mahayana and is taught in the sutras. At the same time, the six paramitas, all aspects of it actually, have to be part of the practice in the Theravada as well as Vajrayana, although it is part of the practice of Mahayana.
