A FEW WORDS ON CHANHTUDUY.COM

My Kia Morning 2007 coasted smoothly down the slope on the Southern highway, and I had no travelling companion along with me this time as usual. Although I was not a stranger to this route, b this was the first time I received no moral support from any of my disciples. The situation forced me to cudgel my eyes and brain to keep me concentrated on my driving. Fortunately I had Mat Dieu who has always been playing successfully the role of a “magical eyes” which leads to save us from traffic pressure.

The plan for this journey has been drawn up from the very first day of the year, and it takes nearly 2 months for that plan to come into reality. Owing to the gentle affinity and the supporting of Buddha; on this occasion, Mat Tu was in a leisured time and she could take care of our Song Nguyen House, especially the newborn kittens. It took me a time to clean all the excuses and take the chance, let alone the mundane people who have burdened from their children, grandchildren, distance obstacle, household responsibilities, etc, how can they have time to accomplish their desires.. This leads to the situation that many people rarely had the chance to take a journey, even every 5-10 years in their lifetime. Even when they got the chance, they will be tortured by the nostalgia which was originated from the place they have just left. Hasty and fidgety are best adjectives to describe their common feelings.

At that moment I treasure my light-hearted life more than ever. Above all my intentions, our Buddha had blessed Quang Loi to petition me for giving him a Dharma teaching. Then along with the rites, I had the opportunity to see my disciples.

Driving on the new highway from Long Thanh to District 9, Ho Chi Minh city that has just been constructed to be more wide and safe, my memory accidently threw back to the day I had to struggle with potholes several years ago. The comparison makes me feel more pleased. Although Vietnam still has a long way to go, seeing the infrastructure development has been improved day by day has showed us a nation full of vitality. At least we are happy more than people in Syria, Libya, Iraq, Thailand, Egypt, etc who are suffering from an insecure regime.

It was also my first experience driving on the Nguyen Cuu Phu, Nguyen Duy Trinh, Do Xuan Hop Streets on District 9, Ho Chi Minh city. Formerly, every time thinking about Phuoc Long, my thought was always heading to a distant and remote shooting range, not even have the supplying of electricity and water. But now everything has been turning up to be completely different. There is only one imagination that still stays the same in my mind: the smiling face of Mat Tri Vu, the first disciple that I have met in my rites this time.

I, Mat Dieu and Mat Tri Vu was passing by a coffee shop named “Crystal” which was decorated in European style with main color in white. I guessed this place is the widest coffee shop in Thu Duc District. The stream of stories that Mat Tri Vu had told me about his experiences on learning and practicing Dharma gave me lots of pleasure. He spent so much time on reading my articles on the website chanhtuduy.com that it came to a Yes to every articles when I asked him whether he read it or not.

On this occasion, I am going to explain for you why I have been specializing on chanhtuduy.com that much.

In the old days, the attendance of Buddhist monk and layman in a Bodhimandala to listen to Dharma was compulsory because at that time the society had no written language. For that reason, the person who obtains the fruit of deeds was called Sravaka, the name was given to the disciple of Buddha who hears and learns the truth from Buddha and finally attains Nirvana. Listening to Dharma is accordingly considered one of ten activities of Buddhist which creates great merits. After Indian society invented the written language, Buddhist who chose to read Dharma lectures was also received the same merits as those who listen to Dharma. It is not a coincidence that words of Post-Han dynasty was left as following: “Reading is a way to converse with the Sages”. Since then, Buddha’s lectures was transmitted to scriptures instead of oral-transfer only. Sutras (Buddhist scriptures) becomes a Dharma’s treasure under Three Jewels (Buddha, Dharma and Sangha). Therefore, T’ang Tripitaka – Hsuan Chen spent 18 years to travel across India to seek Buddhist scriptures and brought back to China. After that, it took 17 years with 3 times in total for Saint-Sage Marpa who is a yogi as well as an outstanding and excellent layman, the founder of Kadam lineage of Tibetan Tantric Buddhism to travel through India and Nepal to seek and learn as well as practice Dharma and brought Buddha teaching to Tibetan.

Because the Technology Information industry seems to reach its extreme these days, we do not have to spend much of our time on seeking Dharma like our legendary Saint-Sages before. Just one click on the bar-task of any internet browsers, you can easily read a lot of Buddhist scriptures which belong to various kind of school and Dharma-door. Reading Dharma on the internet at this age is also considered Dharma approach. Not only Dharma’s listening but also Dharma’s reading keep us on the track of Dharma’s orbit. While reading Dharma, we acknowledge Dharma’s teaching and we ourselves know how to analyze every heading of Buddhist scriptures.

Moreover, because you cannot read and comprehend all the Buddhist scriptures that obtains lots of advanced meaning, I act as an interpreter to explain in an easier way for you to understand. That method is so-called “The learning of communication”, which is one of the Five Great Learning of Buddha. I chose to express Buddhist scripture in my own way to help all of you easily understand the content of Buddha’s teaching. Moreover, this will be more suitable to the present regime, age and nation factors. On the other hand, when I put all my mind power, knowledge and mental power into the wording of the articles on the website chanhtuduy.com, I created a bridge to connect to your mind. And it is definitely a good way for you to hoard up your merit by reading Dharma.

In conclusion, whoever are disciples of Song Nguyen’s Bodhimandala did not read my Dharma lectures by means of articles on chanhtuduy.com will not considered my real disciples because they disobeyed the most important Tibetan Buddhism’s taboos which means not respecting their Guru. That is one of the ten main taboos they have to follow. It is totally not that I want to penalize my disciples to satisfy my own purposes. It is all your choice to close the door to the truth of Dharma and the waves of Tantric Saints and Sages, holy monks, Pubbacariya’s souls (which indicated Ancient sages, ancient scholars, as well as meritorious person of the past). I gave thought to myself that not mentioned to the relationship in the attainment of Buddha between the Guru and the Disciple; in mundane social relation, when it comes to the situation that you are invited to a party, even if the menu did not serve you well, you should at least have an apple pie to please the hostess. Why don’t you even touch the dishes when I was well-prepared for the spiritual party?

Therefore, it goes without saying that those disciples who did not read my lectures on chanhtuduy.com created a distance between me and them. Even if they practice Dharma continuously, the power which comes from enlightenment will not come to them. In Tibetan Buddhism, by studying the prerequisite training of Guru-devotion and the Graded Path, common to both the sutra and tantra, you will become vessel to hold the pure Dharma.  This was written obviously by Arya Ma Ming in his masterpiece:” 50 Stanzas on Guru Devotion”.

After reading my articles on chanhtuduy.com, you are requested to leave a comment to increase your merits because at that time your brains work under the basis of intellectual distinction by listening to Dharma. You should not think mistakenly that other people had commented all the ideas that might happen in your mind and you had nothing new to comment. It will be alright if you just leave a simple comment like:” I am very happy being read your article”, or “Your explanation is so confusing”. At least, it will be much better than you do not comment anything. You had better have a drink when approaching a river while you are so thirsty. And you should not return with empty-handed when you already found the treasure of gold. I do not pay much attention on how good your comments really are, I just want to take an assessment on how much devotion you give towards your Guru. Incidentally, I recall the Holy saying of Arya Atisha on his masterpiece “A Lamp to the Path of Enlightenment”, verse 64:

“Then, to receive the preceptor initiation,

You must please an excellent spiritual teacher

Through service, valuable gifts and the like

As well as through obedience.”

Or in Verse No.46 on “50 Stanzas on Guru Devotion”, Arya Ma Ming has maintained:

“What need is there to say much more.

Do whatever pleases your Guru, avoid doing anything he would not like.”

You all should reflect yourself to find your own answer.

My dear Disciples,

Not all the Gurus have to be well-written, and not yet all the well-written deliver exact meaning. Even when they deliver the truth of Dharma to you, not all of that portion can provide you inspiration. One more time, even if they meet all above requirements, rarely of them put all enthusiasm of mind-power into their writings. Although I am not a good writer, but I can assure you that my writings are proper and deliver correct meaning of true Dharma. I have been writing in the heart of Bodhicitta. For the sake of devotion towards your Guru, you yourself have full powers to determine the behavior of your body, your speech and mind.

Of course, for those readers who just come across our website chanhtuduy.com, whether you decide to read and comment or not, it does not matter to the relationship between Guru and Disciples at all. Being a Buddhist practitioner in common, whoever “listening to Dharma” will automatically receive merits and blessings. Otherwise, you will receive nothing. On the other hand, for those who are my disciples, if you did not follow my teaching, you will gradually stay away from the supporting and blessing waves of deities of Buddha, Padmasambhava, Dakini which is delivered by the devotion towards your Guru. Since then, you yourself can take care of your spiritual destiny, you also cannot develop the capacity of “drawing others’ interest”, as well as the capacity of “dissipating misfortune, increasing benefits, surrendering unconditionally”.

To make an ending to this writing, I take the liberty to make vows as below:

Today, 27 February 2014, I am Nguyen Thanh, Buddha’s Disciple, who understand full meaning of “Shame for self and shame for others” in the Dharmapada Sutra and being a Good Knowing Advisor in Buddhism of Song Nguyen’s Bodhimandala, I take vows in front of Buddha, Padmasambhava, VajraDharma Guardian as below:

  1. Based on the supernatural power of Buddha, Padmasambhava, Dakini to put all the mind-power into every of my lecture, I vow for any disciples of Song Nguyen’s Bodhimandala will be created favorable conditions to read articles on chanhtuduy.com to connect their mind with their Guru’s, Buddhist’s Saints and Sages. Their powers which come from enlightenment will be increase day by day and their intellectual insight will be more clear-sighted, their affairs will be flowing easy.
  2. I will bear all the offences which were arisen by the laziness of those who being disciples of Song Nguyen’s Bodhimandala (no matter they are inners or not). I will also receive all the outcomes that are going to correspondingly happen based on the law of causation which was the result of my not having enough enlightening power to improve the interest and surrender in Dharma on them.
  3. I vow that every people who had had the natural bond to come across and read one or many of my articles on chanhtuduy.com will be gardened merits and virtues for the future to be a Tibetan Buddhist, from now to the supreme enlightenment.

Phuoc Thanh Village, 27 Feb 2014

Thinley Nguyen Thanh.

  6. tshering dhendup says:
    Dear Guru,
    Thank you for sharing the article and it is of great use for us. I hope to practice the dharma you have preached whenever i can. Thank you.
    May all the sentient beings attain enlightenment
  7. Sonam norbu says:
    The conquer of peace and Buddhahood,
    The supreme holder of all the oceans of thousand Buddhas,
    The king of dharma of the world,
    The holder of Nyingma lineage of Song Nguyen Tantra House,
    The compassionate Guru Thinley Nguyen Thanh,
    I pray at your feet,
    So by the blessing of your holiness,
    May all sentient beings and i attain fully enlightened Buddhahood.
    The holy guru, the compassionate one with your unlimited tenderness always like a crystal running water, swiftly pours out the words of wisdom. Your preachings are so immense with vast meaning and wisdom. For your unlimited wisdom I am greatly encouraged and pray at your feet.
    From the distance, i really feel the tranquility to read and learn your preachings. It seems like the Buddha Sakyamuni turning the wheel of dharma, giving the virtuous sermon for the innocent beings. A dry leaf is easily being blown away by the gentle breeze of calmness, so as the leaf is my mind. My soul of body, speech and mind dance with smile with your omniscient preachings. Your holiness, the compassionate one is the Buddha that has appeared in this world to bring benefits to all the sentient beings. Your holiness is the source of help and encouragement for the sentient beings to live in the world of dharma cycle to attain Buddha-hood. So vigilance you are as was, is and will be the Buddha for sentient beings.
    Well the era of now is marked by the drastic changes in the notion of beings, so to tame the non-virtuous mind of every individuals to sustain till the arrant enlightenment, your holiness is the greatest and finest protector of all sentient beings. The care of mother is your holiness’ care to all sentient beings. At all times of lives being in the past, present and future and at dawn and dust of existence , your holiness kindness and guide of dharma you preach move the beings in righteous of action, speech and thoughts. For your unlimited care for sentient beings your holiness is the precious mother of all.
    Your holiness virtuous mind radiates loving-kindness, compassion, sympathetic joy, equanimity and so forth. With the Buddha attainment of your holiness, the attachment, hatred, pride, ignorance, jealousy, and miserliness of all sentient beings can be purified. The altruistic mind of holiness possesses pure knowledge of truth and recognized ultimate state of phenomena is emptiness. So the preachings of the holy Guru shower the tract of enlightenment for all. While the practitioners and I feel the freedom from obscurations with the blessings from your holiness discourses on Buddha dharma.
    Now towards the end of my thoughts on holy Guru’s preachings and discourses, I feel I am lucky to have the golden chance to read with patience, learn with happiness and concentrate with faith on holiness preachings. So with my heart as the Acharya Shantideva said, “All the happiness the world contains comes through wishing happiness for others; all the misery the world contains comes from wishing pleasure only for oneself.” So all sentient beings are our parents and all our parents are grateful beings. May all the grateful beings attain enlightenment. Thus, may the holy Guru live long for the benefit of all the sentient beings which are tormented by the hotness, coldness and pain of cyclic sufferings in this existence of beginningless samsara. May the sermon of Buddha spread throughout the nooks and corners of universe. May all the Buddhas and Sangas of this good kalpa live long to dispel the sufferings. So lastly no means the least I code Buddha Shakyamuni, “Those who desire Buddhahood should not train on many Dharmas, but only one. Which one? The greatest of all is compassion. For those who understand and emanate compassion possesses all the Buddha’s teachings as if it were in their palm of their hand.”
  8. Milan lama says:
    Dear Guru, I have read this article. I am thankful for your nice article. May the Guru live long for the benefit of all beings. May all beings achieve the happiness of Buddha nature. Om Mani Padme Hum.
  9. Tantra Citta(Jeffrey Bernard Forest) says:
    Dear Holy Guru,
    A very beautiful article which once again shows the importance of reading Dharma lectures, by our esteemed Master Thinley Nguyen Thanh and obtaining the glorious merits. We are also blessed at Chanhtuduy.com by the wonderful and excellent translation efforts of our beloved disciple, Mat Dieu Hang, as well as other translator’s of the letters and articles. When one is afforded the opportunity to listen to Dharma lectures, you receive the same wonderful merits and should never turn down such an offer. Reading and listening to Dharma is a beautiful way to converse with the Sages. Saint-Sage Master Marpa is but one of many virtuous Saint-Sage’s that students and disciples alike can benefit, from their profound wisdom. The Sutra’s indeed become a Dharma’s treasure under the Three Jewels(Buddha, Dharma and Sangha).As one ventures down the highway of life, and the beauty that surrounds it, we are blessed by our revered Guru, Thinley Nguyen Thanh, and his guidance, both in his writing’s and in his spoken word. All of which is truly in the heart of Bodhicitta. The students and disciples at Song Nguyen Tantra House are truly grateful for this, and their body, speech and mind are immeasurably enhanced and purified. May all of us attain the ultimate happiness of Buddha nature, and especially our beloved Master. Blessings to the Guru and his consort, and to all of humanity. Om Mani Padme Hum. Tantra Citta (Jeffrey Bernard Forest).

    Following the holy Dharma, it’s very important to have the blessings of the GURU and the right path to follow to.It also wall explained by lord Buddha in the white lotus sutra;

    Dear Holy Guru

    this article has brought me so much happiness.

    I started studying the Dharma following an introduction to Buddhism at the Tibetan Buddhist Society in Western Australia last year and, although it spoke to me, I felt it would be hard for me to study under the guidance of a Guru due to a lack of time temples are open during the week and the shortage of Buddhism facilities at all.

    One day one of your followers messaged me, out of the blue on Facebook, just to say hi. I instantly trusted her. My dear friend, Violet Tran, started advising me on articles to read and immediately brought me closer to the Buddha’s teachings and their understanding through this website.

    Holy Guru, not only is this site a great place to study but for those of us living in a country that does not have a large Buddhist following, it is a site which can bring us closer to the Dharma but also provides us with a Buddhist ‘family’.

    I feel that the love you share through this site can only reduce mine, and others, suffering and I thank you for your words.

    i thank you for your guidance and this site but especially for your acceptance of me as one of your students.

    for your consideration Holy Guru

    Om mani padme hum

     

  14. Tantra Mikaya (jane) says:

    Dear holy guru. Good morning from Berlin. I read your article early in the morning. I thank you cordially and I apologize if my answer yesterday was nothing new or instructive. My intention was to explain how I came to Buddhism, and we can be wary of your wise knowledge. I know that the beginning was very extensive with me and I quickly understood that the daily training and reading of your article will show success. I wake up in the morning and meditate and read. I read from the beginning that it is important to follow a guru who helps with his knowledge and teaching the right method. I thank you very much for that. Even if we leave some of our decision to a guru, we are still responsible for our actions. Our Guru guides us to our inner Guru and is therefore very important. Our Guru shows us our nature of mind and helps us to stay on our path. When we do not read, we do not develop our mind any further and can not recognize the nature of the mind. We have nothing new to say. Our Guru knows the path and provides help through his methodology. May our Guru have a healthy and long life. May our mind be pure and disciplined

  15. Waldik D L Souza says:
    Dear Master ,

    Thank you for the blessings and Vows that You made for any one who reads Your teachings .

    May you be in good health .

    Namo Amitabha Buddha.

  16. Dear Holy Guru,
    I have read your article “a few words on chanhtuduy.com. I am so touched by your words. It is always a privilege for anyone to read the articles you have written on chanhtuduy.com
    We are sunk in the ocean of suffering in samsara. Suffering is our sick. If we do not know how to practice the Dharma, our sick never is cure.
    The Sutra Arranged like a Tree says: “you should think of yourself as someone who is sick, of the Dharma as the remedy, of your spiritual friend as a skilful doctor and of diligent practice as the way to recovery.”
    Your profound skillful means of chanhtuduy.com with your teachings and your three vows make it possible for our sick to be cured. When we read and comment articles on chanhtuduy.com, we gradually get recovery. In addition, your four –in- one method of reading and commenting on chanhtuduy.com gives us the opportunity to connect with the Guru’s pure mind as well as Buddha’s mind. Only does our Guru devotion with pure conception make the Buddhahood within us manifest without our having to undergo great hardships. Thus, Patrul Rinpoche wrote that: “The teacher (Guru) embodies the essence of all Buddhas throughout the three times. He is the union of the Three Jewels: his body is the Sangha, his speech the Dharma, his mind the Buddha. He is the union of the Three Roots: his body is the teacher, his speech the yidam, his mind the dakini, He is the union of the three kayas: his body is the nirmanakaya, his speech the sambhogakaya, his mind the dharrnakaya, He is the embodiment of all the Buddhas of the past, source of all the Buddhas of the future and the representative of all the Buddhas of the present. Since he takes as his disciples degenerate beings like us, whom none of the thousand Buddhas of the Good Kalpa could help, his compassion and bounty exceed that of all Buddhas.” (The words of my perfect teacher by Patrul Rinpoche)
    I am thankful for your valuable teachings and I am proud of being one of your disciples.
    May you and your consort have a good health and live long for the sake of all sentient beings.
    I also deeply rejoice in the good deeds of Mat Tu who has translated your article into English. Her English version supports to flourish your teachings all over the world for the benefit of all sentient beings.
    May Mat Tu achieve all legitimate wishes and be at ease on the path to enlightenment.
    May all sentient beings attain the happiness of Buddha’s nature.
    Om Mani Padme Hum.

    Dear Holy Guru

     

    Thank you for the teaching

      Con xin phép dịch comment của bạn đọc Jeong Geun Mok sang tiếng Việt như sau:

      “Kính bạch Thầy tâm linh tôn quý!

      Con cảm tạ ơn Thầy đã chỉ dạy con.

      Con cảm tạ ơn Thầy đã vì chúng con mà phát nguyện.

      Có nhiều khi, sau khi con đọc bài viết của Thầy con chỉ muốn viết một câu đơn giản ” Om Mani Padme Hum”. Con rất thích câu thần chú này. Con cảm tạ ơn Thầy đã chỉ bảo.

      Om Mani Padme Hum.”

    Dear guru,

    Does this mean you are my teacher? I love reading your articles and live reading the responses. Am i considered Buddhist if i study every day? I must admit i do have trouble pronouncing some of the words in the reading. I look forward to each article. I’m still sinful for I’m not perfect but I’m trying.  Thank you for all you try to teach us.

      “Kính bạch Thầy!

      Con băn khoăn liệu Thầy có chấp nhận dạy con và trở thành Thầy của con không ạ? Con rất thích đọc những bài viết của Thầy và viết comment sau khi đọc bài. Nếu con học hàng ngày như thế này thì con có được xem như là một Phật tử không ạ? Con xin thú thật với Thầy là con gặp khó khăn việc đọc hiểu một số từ trong bài viết. Con rất hoan hỷ và chờ đợi được đọc từng bài viết của Thầy. Con là người không tốt, con vẫn còn nhiều tội lỗi nhưng con sẽ cố gắng học.

      Con cảm tạ ơn Thầy đã dạy dỗ con.”

      Yes, I am your teacher or your Guru. I am ready to teach you.

      You are considered to be a Buddhist when you read my articles and comment on chanhtuduy.com. Because a Buddhist needs to develop right view. In addition, reading and commenting on articles on chanhtuduy.com is one of six methods which I have created. This method is called “Samayagdrsti-Prabha Samadhi”. However, you will be my official disciple when you take refuge in the Three Jewels and get the proper Dharma transmission from me.

    Dear holy Guru, My name is Jennifer, I am living in the United States of America. I’m the wife to Steve and I have three adult children. Two girls and one boy. We have suffered much in earlier life but things are slowly getting better. I long to make relationships with other Buddhists. I wish to learn Buddhism for a better life for me and others. I have spent a very hard life before. Now it became the experience in my life. I have learned much. There were many who showed love and care to me and my children. They took care of us and they showed me the world can be a wonderful, loving, peaceful, and giving place. I wanted to do the same. The loving Buddha shows me how to forgive and accept that everyone is not the same. What I consider to be right thought is not what everyone considers right thought. Buddha was born a rich man and chose a life of poverty to better understand and relate to the world. He had spent his whole life to find out the Path for all sentient beings free from suffering. I deeply respect and highly appreciate the loving Buddha for his greatness, his wisdom and compassion. I have searched for long time to learn Buddhism to benefit me and others. I have made some friends on internet and I have met some Buddhists in Facebook. My journey in Buddhism practice is an interesting and exciting one. I came across Buddhism by accident, or so I would think, but now I believe it was Karma. I was struggling with my mental illness and I was really struggling with my faith. I was raised Catholic by my grandmother and then later decided to become non-denominational Christian. I even went as far as getting myself and my children baptized. Looking back, I realize I did this for all of the wrong reasons. I did not do it because it filled my religious needs but rather it helped ease the fear of what happens after we die. With my mental illness, I obsessed about what would happen after I died. Would I just simply vanish and become nothing?

    Through internet I can connect with you. I have a chance to read your articles on chanhtuduy.com. I am really happy to read your writings. I am new to Buddhism. I can understand about Buddhism by reading your articles. I remember that as a Buddhist, I should: “reside in the house of Right Mindfulness, live with the compassion and work with the wisdom and show undiscriminating attitude towards objects and events.” The fear of becoming nothing has plagued me since childhood. It terrified me to think that I could just disappear and it wouldn’t matter. I would simply be gone and nothing I ever did or said would matter. I would just cease to exist. That fear no longer plagues me. I now understand that in life suffering is inevitable and why would I want to hold on to that? In Buddhism, we learn that we are working towards enlightenment. Enlightenment is when we no longer suffer. We learn to avoid and conquer suffering. We learn to let go of the suffering of earth and we become peaceful. We want to reach peace so that we no longer have to suffer. As a saying: “Easier said than done”. I am spending more time studying Buddhism as my Guru has been, and continues to be, a wonderful teacher. It seems that the articles I come in contact with each day relate to my life at that time. It is amazing. I love learning Buddhism. Whenever I read your articles, I feel relaxing and peaceful. Day by day, I learn a little and I understand a little. And I feel my suffering is lessening a little. I always keep in my mind all the care you have for your disciples and all other beings. I highly appreciate your kindness, compassion and your love to all beings. Iam  deeply moved by your three vows for all beings: “Today, 27 February 2014, I am Nguyen Thanh, Buddha’s Disciple, who understand full meaning of “Shame for self and shame for others” in the Dharmapada Sutra and being a Good Knowing Advisor in Buddhism of Song Nguyen’s Bodhimandala, I take vows in front of Buddha, Padmasambhava, VajraDharma Guardian as below: 1, Based on the supernatural power of Buddha, Padmasambhava, Dakini to put all the mind-power into every of my lecture, I vow for any disciples of Song Nguyen’s Bodhimandala will be created favorable conditions to read articles on chanhtuduy.com to connect their mind with their Guru’s, Buddhist’s Saints and Sages. Their powers which comes from enlightenment will be increase day by day and their intellectual insight will be more clear-sighted, their affairs will be flowing easy. 2, I will bear all the offences which were arisen by the laziness of those who being disciples of Song Nguyen’s Bodhimandala (no matter they are inners or not). I will also receive all the outcomes that are going to correspondingly happen based on the law of causation which was the result of my not having enough enlightening power to improve the interest and surrender in Dharma on them. 3, I vow that every people who had had the natural bond to come across and read one or many of my articles on chanhtuduy.com will be gardened merits and virtues for the future to be a Tibetan Buddhist, from now to the supreme enlightenment.” Whenever I get difficult in my life, your warm smile and whole-hearted care raise me up. I know that I will get over because I have a wonderful Guru like you beside me. Thank you so much for giving me a good opportunity to learn from you. Please pay attention to me, the holy Guru. Please guide me the way to free from suffering and achieve the happiness of Buddha’s nature. May you have good health and live long for the benefit of all sentient beings. May all sentient beings free from suffering and its causes. Om Mani Padme Hum
