COOL WINDS ( GIÓ MÁT)

Midsummer, I’m still getting used to the uncomfortable heat. I have been working from home in a small, short-term rental unit since early April. Without the luxury of airconditioning, I grow more sympathized with those many workers for their toilsome labor under the scorching sun. Making a living can be extremely challenging; I know I’m already fortunate comparing to so many.
Sunset, my room is still boiling. Even with two fans running at maximum capacity, the sweltering heat refuses to subside. Circulating winds inside an insulated room cannot change the temperature. I know its chilling effect on my skin is just another temporary illusion of this world.
On the contrary, cool winds from outside can bring down the room temperature considerably and comfort us quickly. I start to think about having to endure all the sufferings of this Saha world without the Dharma. It’s like having to endure the sweltering heat inside an enclosed room on a much higher level.
Since I started learning the Dharma, my life has been an open room. The Guru is the window and the space connects me with the vast space of the Buddha’s realm. From this window comes the winds of blessing. I don’t have to face this world alone. Padmasambhava Guru Rinpoche has taught: “I have never seen any diligent Dharma practitioner who falls into destitution.” I don’t have to yearn for the comfort of worldly winds. They are only temporary illusions. Through this open window, I see the true happiness of this world and the world beyond.

Padmasambhava Guru Rinpoche has taught: “I have never seen any diligent Dharma practitioner who falls into destitution.”

In these summer days, I often recall the image of Thanh Phong Các (Catching Good Winds) of a distant past. Under that blue canvas roofing, under that scorching sun and sweltering heat without any air conditioning,  the Guru was still sitting there giving out lessons. He once said to us, the Yidam’s blessings aren’t always sumptuous, sometimes they can be as simple as a breath of cool winds that bring you some comfort.

Thanh Phong Các (Catching Good Winds) of a distant past

The very name “Thanh Phong Các” is the exact remembrance of those blessings, as mentioned in the article “The Winds.” Fast forward a few years, Song Nguyen Tantra house has changed so dramatically with more and more modern conveniences, including air conditioning. Yet, I still treasure the moments I get to sit down next to the Guru and many Dharma brothers, have some Dharma talks, and enjoy the cool breaths of fresh winds, which we all believe are the blessings of Avalokiteshvara.

I still treasure the moments I get to sit down next to the Guru and many Dharma brothers, have some Dharma talks, and enjoy the cool breaths of fresh winds

As cool winds come and the heat subsides, I feel much more comfortable.  For all the invisible winds passing through my life, I never know where they come from, but I’m sure they will always there around me. However, these winds of blessing can’t do me any favor if I enclosed myself in a room without windows. So I pray for me and all sentient beings, may we always open our heart and mind to the Dharm treasure the rare opportunity of connecting with a Kalyanamitra. Let us enjoy the cool winds of blessing. May all sentient beings attain the happiness of Buddha’s nature.
I pray for the health and longevity of the Guru and His Consort for the benefit of all sentient beings. May the Covid-19 pandemic will soon be over.

    Dear Guru,
    I have read this article. The article is very beautiful and meaningful, gives me a pleasant feeling amidst the sweltering heat of summer days.
    I was extremely impressed with the unique comparison that the Guru is like a window, linking our narrow mind to the vast, pure realm of Buddha. Human destitution not only comes from the material insufficiency, but more importantly, it comes from the frustration and powerlessness of the mind. Guru and your precious instructions, therefore, are like a window to free us from the confinement of our minds, towards positive thinking and hope for the best that will come.
    The author’s remembrance of the Thanh Phong Cac in the past made me literally touched. Whatever the circumstances, the simplicity of the old days or the comforts of today, the fire of the Guru’s Bodhicitta has never stopped shining. For myself, I think that I need to be more sensitive to the blessings from the Yidam, like your teachings that, they sometimes can be as simple as a breath of cool winds.
    Dear Guru,
    Thank you so much for sharing with us this meaningful article. I also have the same belief with the author that I dont have to face this world alone. That feeling is really great, it makes me always feel safe and sound in every situation of life since happiness is sometimes simply believing that, there is always someone beside us.
    May all of us be always protected in the orbit of Guru’s blessings.
    May all beings attain the true happiness of liberation.
    May Guru and your consort have good health and live long for the benefit of all sentient beings.
    May the covid 19 pandemic soon be over.
    Om Mani Pad Me Hum.

    Dear holy Guru,
    I feel fresh and cool when reading this article amidst the heat in Hanoi. I feel the hot weather seem to go away and the cool wind is coming in every word and photo in the article. If someone is living in the small space with high heat, they will understand the true value of a fresh wind coming. It is so wonderful. We are living in the samsaric heat, we are so blessed to enjoy the fresh and pure wind of Dharma from Guru and Buddha. We are having a wonderful life at the moment ewith Deity ‘s blessings through Guru.
    No one refuses happiness but they often do not know how to achieve happiness. They seem to do something impure to lead them to an unhappy life with attachment on ego and eight worldly winds.
    In some cases, even the fresh and pure wind of Dharma coming, someone is ignorant enough to shut down the door of mind with wrong view, they are still suffering from the heat of Samsara and they can not find the way out.
    Thank you so much for your teachings and support us to enjoy the pure and cool wind of Dharma daily for the happiness this life and pure bliss next life.
    May you and your consort have good health and live long for the sake of all sentient beings.
    May all sentient beings have an opportunity to enjoy the cool wind from Deity’s blessings through Guru for inner happiness, worldly success and social achievements.
    May covid 19 pandemic come to an end soon.

    Dear holy Guru,
    I have read this article. This article is really beautiful with delighted and metaphorical images. My life could be seen as a room, which is getting hotter from the heat of this Saha world and also getting more and more dusty because of the poisonous worldly wind. Fortunately, I have an opportunity to learn Yoga Thanh Tri from the holy Guru. I love the sentence “The Guru is the window and the space connects me with the vast space of the Buddha’s realm”. And it is not just a normal window but it is made of great compassion and wisdom, which creates the “right view” filter to help me get out of the dust from worldly wind and transform five negative emotions into five Tathagata wisdoms. It is true to say that through Guru’s teaching, I can see the true happiness of this world and the world beyond. Because via practicing Yoga Thanh Tri with nurturing Guru devotion as an important foundation, I am be able to understand “knowing enough is rich”, keep my mind in balance and in rewarding attitude, transforming my mind in a positive way in the orbit of Dharma Buddha, instead of making up reasons to blame for the challenges that I might face.
    Thank you holy Guru for your teaching. May Guru and your consort have good health and live long for the sake of all sentient beings.
    May the epidemic of Covid-19 come to end soon.
    May all sentient beings attain the happiness of Buddha’s nature.
    Om Mani Padme Hum.

    This article reminds me that we are ALL(in a basic way)the same. Whoever wrote this article says that he feels the sweltering heat in his hotel room. He then speaks of somebody working outside suffering the heat. Yes, the heat affects the two people differently, but still the two people feel the temperature and call it heat. Even the few unfortunate souls who cannot noticeably feel the heat would react to the heat by sweating, for that is a human physical reaction to heat and we are ALL human.

    Dear Guru,

    I am so delighted to read this beautiful writing. It brings me full of cool and joyful feeling with a deep sympathizing regarding the precious bliss I have had in this life – meeting and following a Kalyanamitra. I am interested in the image of Guru as the window opening our minds, helping us be connected to vast pace of Buddha’s realm. How’s fortunate we are. We are no longer being suffered in boiling ourselves at the samsaric heat which has been persecuting many many sentient beings. We have got the source of blessings from Deity through Guru’s channel that bringing the fresh winds, the nectar essence to cool, soothe the scorching heat. I pray for myself and all of us will always cherish our lucks, nurture Guru devotion and keep diligence in dharma practice, for us to always recognize and appreciate every cool breeze, even the smallest.

    May Guru and your consort have good health and live long for the sake of all sentient beings.

    May all sentient beings achieve the happiness of Buddha’s nature.

    May the covid-19 pandemic will be soon eliminated.

    Con đã đọc xong bài này rồi ạ.
    Qua bài này chúng con khởi nên niềm kiêu hãnh linh thánh khi là một trong những người hiếm hoi có được may mắn biết được cảm giác mát lành của ngọn gió thế gian lẫn ngọn gió đạo pháp. Vị Thầy là người cho chúng con biết đến và giúp chúng con tận hưởng ngọn gió tinh tuý nhất mát dịu nhất mang tên Chánh Pháp làm cho tâm thức của chúng con trở nên dễ chịu sau bao năm chịu đựng cái nóng gò bó ngột ngạt của vô minh cùng với đó là chữa lành những vết thương bỏng rát đau đớn của thân căn huệ mạng bị ngọn lửa địa ngục thiêu đốt của chúng con. Mặc dù con chưa đến với Mật Gia trung tâm nhưng qua lời kể của các đạo huynh đạo hữu con cũng cảm nhận được sự mát mẻ tự nhiên của ” Thanh Phong Các” mang lại nơi đây chúng con vừa được tận hưởng ngọn gió của thế gian thường xuyên ghé qua kết hợp nghe vị Thầy giảng pháp một cảm giác thật thoải mái dễ chịu cả về thể các lẫn tâm thức. Con hiểu rằng chỉ khi có niềm tin nơi vị Thầy có lòng sùng kính Đạo sư thì chúng con mới đủ sức mở cánh cửa khép chặt bấy lâu vì sự ngu dốt của mình mới có thể đón nhận được cơn gió lành cuốn sạch đi mọi khổ đau phiền não trong cõi ta bà rực lửa này.

    Dear Guru,
    I am delighted to read this article.
    I am thankful for your sharing the meaningful article. Some words in this make me feel that I am into a Cool wind from the blessing of Yidam and Guru. I was a chance to “enjoy” the uncomfortable heat of North when I came here in June so I understood that its chilling effect on my skin is just another temporary illusion from the fan. Likewise, a little happiness in life cannot appease the heat of the Sara world on time I did not meet yet Guru and Dharma. Thereby, like with the author I am grateful to Guru who helps me open the window’s life, welcome the blessing winds, and connect with the vast space of the Buddha’s realm by learning and applying Dharma to life through Pure Mind Yoga. On the way to that, my life with the present day is better than in the past days. I am thankful to Guru.

    I am glad to read the article “COOL VINDS”.
    Throgh this sharing, I realize that, A house without the window, even thogh, the winds circulate inside an insulated room, it still cannot chance temperature. That’s same, Guru is like the windows, if we do learn and practice the Dharma without Guru, we cannot connect with the vast space of Buddha’s realm.

    Dear Holy Guru
    I have read the article in a beautiful day, I have suffered from scorching sun in recently days so I feel blessful with gentleness of the weather today. I think wrirter’s feeling that Guru is the window bringing the blessing winds to us from Yidam when Guru connects Dharma practioners with Buddha’s realm . I total agree with this opinion. The enlightenment way will be closed if we dont open our mind, our heart likely we are lack of teachings from Guru. Guru’s teachings are keys to awake Buddha nature existing each of us.
    May you good health, long life for all sentent beings.

  23. Mật Thủy says:

    Dear Guru,

    I enjoy reading this article. I feel the writer in this sharing. The cool winds to the others are only the normal phenomenal, but to us, they are the blessings from Avalokiteshvara via Guru’s transmission channel. As long as we open our heart and mind to Dharma and connecting Guru, we all have the chance to catch the cool winds even in the scorching midsummer of life.

    Recently, I have experienced the cool wind from Guru’s transmission channel with a casual job at the company I interned last year. I’ve been affected by the heat of the global unemployment rising due to the Covid-19. Thousands of employees got laid off here in New Zealand has made my job searching challenging. In the middle of that situation, I unexpectedly received the request of that company asking me to help them for a while. It’s incredible as I finished my internship there more than half a year. I also don’t know how long for that “a while”. I only know that next week will be my third week working there, and I enjoy every day going to work as that’s the blessing from Avalokiteshvara via Guru’s channel to me.

    I’m so grateful to you, Guru for transmitting the cool winds to us and comfort us in this flaming life. I pray for your health and your longevity for the benefit of all sentient beings.

    May the Covid-19 pandemic soon come to an end.
    Om mani padme hum!

    As Dharma’brother in the article, I always feel lucky to meet Guru. Song Nguyen Tantra House becomes our second home where we always enjoy the cool winds, always receive the blessings, given by Guru the treasures so that we do not have to endure the stifling heat by samsaric suffering. we are in world life anywhere in the world, in Europe or America or Asia, we are welcomed by Guru under the roof of Song Nguyen Tantra House with infinite compassion. It is also our special fate between the ” hands of the never tolerant worldly”. The blessing cool winds will not stop blowing if we always have faith in the Guru, Buddha, Dharma and Sangha.
    Thank you Guru!

  35. TantraMikaya (jane) says:

    dear holy guru. Thank you very much for your article COOL WINDS. I want to express my thoughts here and what it teaches me. In the country I live in it is now summer time and we have a maximum of 24 degrees at the time. Some people want more warmth and sun. That means here people believe that they suffer because the sun is missing in the summer time and they are cold too. This is an illusion. Through the Dharma I learned that nothing is permanent and everything has a meaning. as you wrote holy guru. A fan’s wind feels cool, but it doesn’t change the room temperature. It is one of our illusions. The cool wind feels refreshing on the skin, but is an illusion. In every situation we should be thankful that we wake up and that we have 24 hours to breathe, to shape our daily life with a calm, clear mind. But we shouldn’t indulge in the illusions we encounter every day. The weather used to be too cold or too rainy or too hot for me. With the help of your wise article, I learned that I can calm my mind in every situation and see the valuable things in it and that many things are an illusion of our thoughts or feelings. Just like a magical autumn follows after the hot summer and a quiet winter with time for rest. When I sit on my balcony and feel the gentle warmth of the sun, I listen carefully to the birds singing and whistling. It calms my mind and I’m relaxed. I see the lush green of the trees and white the leaves will fall again in a few weeks. It is the cycle of nature. The Dharma is the teaching of the painful entanglement of man in the cycle of rebirth and the description of the path that leads from this entanglement to a complete liberation of consciousness, into nirvana. Nirvana is a state of consciousness in which the narrowing of dual thinking has been overcome and all egoic interest has disappeared, in which there is therefore also no suffering, no age, no death and no rebirth – an ultimate state of highest happiness. And it is at the discretion of everyone to choose the path that leads to it and not to succumb to illusions. Thank you holy Guru for this wonderful article and I’m working on not indulging in the illusions of life. Your article reassures me that much is just an illusion and we can escape this suffering. The prerequisite is working on ourselves through the acquisition of knowledge and a clear mind. All conceptual thinking is an illusion because, no matter what terms we use, we fill them with our own content. This content may be the same for many, we have to communicate somehow.
    But if we look at this thinking with all its effects at a distance, we see the insignificance. The effects, however, are catastrophic. It is an endless chain. And only each individual is able to get out of it. Every grasp within this chain has consequences. Recognizing and understanding this leads to the recognition of emptiness and thus to understanding what is meant by illusion. May all creatures free from suffering. May CoVID 19 go away soon. May our holy Guru life long and healthyy for the sake of all sentient being. May all sentient being achieve the Happiness of Buddhas nature 🙏🙏🙏

    Dear Holy Guru,

    Dear Holly Guru!

    I’m happy to read this article. The stifling heat and the scorching sun of summer made me understand the physical suffering. But physical suffering will not be comparable to spiritual suffering. When people can’t withstand the extreme heat, they look for fans or air conditioners. And when sentient beings experience so much suffering in this fiery Saha world, they will aspire to seek spiritual solutions to ease suffering.

    In the past, our minds were liked closed rooms without windows or with closed doors. But after being students of Guru, we have opened our hearts and minds to receive the winds full of blessing and conneted to the vast space of the Buddha’s realm. The cool winds of blessings from Avalokiteshvara through Guru will dispel the constant suffering of Saha world now and forever.

    Dear Holly Guru!

    We will implement as your teaching.

    May Guru have a long life and good health for the benefit of all sentient beings.

    May the demons will soon cease harming the reader on chanhtuduy.com

    May the Covid 19 Pandemic will be soon over.

    Om Mani Padme Hum.

    Dear Guru!
    I have read the article this “Cool Winds”.
    I am happy to read this article.
    Through reading this article I understand that: this life is like living in a closed room under the heat (pressure, depression). Buddha said “the realms of birth and death is like burning fire, immeasurable suffering surrounded”. Chagdud Tulku RinPoche also affirmed, “No one wants suffering but we still suffer. Therefore, a Guru is needed to help us Dharma practice the law of escape from suffering”.
    We are fortunate, to have been meeting Guru, Guru helped us to know about the Dharma and teaching right view, Dharma practicing to get rid of suffering. Padmasambhava said, “I have not seen anyone who seriously practices the Dharma but suffers hunger and suffering”. Guru is the intermediate channell of transportation that helps us enjoy the blessing. Guru is like metaphorical image a window that helps keep a closed room ventilation.
    May Guru have good heath, live long for the sake of all sentient beings.
    May all sentient beings attain the happiness of Buddha’s nature.
    May the Covid 19 pandemic will be soon over.
    Om mani padme hum!

    Dear Holy Guru,

    I’m delighted to read this article. The cool winds from natural phenomena can cool down the temperature for a while but the winds of blessing, winds of Dharma will take us away the Samsara heat and sorrow forever. I am really impressed with the metaphor image of the Guru is like the window connect us with the vast space of the Buddha’s realm. We had stayed in the painful and darkness of ignorance room and Guru is like a window to brighten our soul, connect us with beautiful, positive world and show us the true happiness. I am so thankful I have met Guru in this life and followed Guru guidance so I have a chance to enjoy the cool winds of blessing. I can’t imagine if my room is opened by a fake bhikkhu, my life would be horrible and full of wrong view. Please accept my deepest thanks for your Bodhicitta, generosity and your brilliant practice methods that brought light and winds to my life. I also understand that as long as I open my heart and mind to Dharma, nurture my devotion to Guru, obey to Guru’s instruction, treasure Dharma, I will have the precious chance to enjoy cool winds and bright light. Thanks for Guru’s teaching, we feel happy and grateful for every simple thing, even with a cool wind in the scorching summer. This mind transformation helps us “keep mind in balance and joyful attitude” in every situation.

    I sincerely pray for the health and longevity of Guru and your consort for the sake of all sentient beings.

    May Covid-19 pandemic will eliminate soon.

    May all sentient beings attain the happiness of Buddha nature.

    Om Mani Padme Hum.

    Dear Guru !
    I’m delighted to read this article. Through this article, I have learnt that blessings from Avalokiteshvara via Guru transmission channel is nothing strange. A cool wind, a good meal, a good night sleep is also a blessings. I enjoy the sentence ” The Guru is the window and the space connects me with the vast space of the Buddha’s realm “. But if we aren’t reverence, even if the door is open, it will not receive any blessings. Just like a house turning away, you can’t get the cool winds.
    May Guru have a good heath and live long for the sake of all sentient beings.
    May all sentient beings attain the happiness of Buddha’s nature.
    May covid – 19 pandemic be soon over.

      May the Guru live long and enjoy good health for the sake of all sentiment beings.
      May all sentiment beings attain the happiness og the Buddha’s nature.

      Dear Holy Guru!
      I am very delighted to read this article. I’m atracted by your thought after reading the article” cool wind”. Unlike nomal cool wind, blessing cool wind from Avalokiteshvara via Guru bring to all happiness and peace in our mind and feeling. Where we live and what we thinkis only in narrow room with darkness, lonliness. Only Holly Guru is considered as mystery window bring blessing cool wind from the space of the Buddha’s realm connecting to all sentient beings.
      May guru live long and have a good health for the sake of all sentient beings.
      May all sentient being attain the happiness of Buhha’s nature.
      May the demons will soon cease harming on the reader.

    Kính bạch Thầy
    Con đã đọc bài ” Cool winds ” ( Gió mát ) rồi ạ.
    ” Cuộc đời tôi từ khi có Pháp giống như 1 căn phòng mở. Vị Thầy là chiếc cửa sổ, là khoảng không gian nối liền với không gian vô tận của cõi giới thuần tịnh mang đến cho tôi những ơn phước mát lành.” Thật vậy, từ ngày may mắn được vị Thầy chỉ dạy chánh pháp thì con cũng không còn mong mỏi hay nặng lòng với cuộc sống thế sự vốn vô thường nữa. Việc thực hành Tâm pháp Thanh Trí hàng ngày đã giúp con không những không còn một mình chống chọi với những mệt mỏi, căng thẳng với những cơn gió ngột ngạt của bát phong nữa mà con còn được nương tựa vào bóng lành của vị Thầy, Phật, Pháp, Tăng, được kết nối với Bổn Tôn thông qua kênh vận chuyển của vị Thầy, giúp con an lạc đời này, cực lạc đời sau. Con cầu nguyện cho con và tất cả chúng sanh luôn được tiếp cận với giáo pháp Yoga Thanh Trí, giữ vững niềm tin vào giáo pháp, trân qúy cơ hội được kết nối với bậc Đạo sư chân chính và trưỡng dưỡng lòng sùng kính Đạo sư để được đón nhận những làn gió ơn phước mát lành. Con cảm ơn vị Thầy.
    Con thành tâm cầu nguyện cho sức khoẻ và sự trường thọ của Thầy Cô vì lợi lạc của chúng sanh. Cầu nguyện cho tất cả chúng sanh thành tựu hạnh phúc Phật tánh. Cầu nguyện cho dịch bệnh Covid 19 sớm tiêu trừ. Om Mani Padme Hum.

    Hello once again, Most Holy Guru. I tend to always be cold, so for me the Dharma represents “warmth” offsetting the “chill” of samsara. As an example, I visited Dalat in 2009 and had to buy heavy winter clothes there because of the very strong chilly wind. But your teaching is on the mark as always and very much appreciated. May your good health continue, and may all sentient beings be relieved of their suffering. Om Mani Padme Hum. Your disciple,Tantra Dhamita

    Dear Holy Guru
    I thank you for this article. It gives me a lot of thought of what we as humans can take for granted and the things we don’t stop to see and appreciate.
    May Guru have peace and the blessings of good life
    May all sentient beings feel the love and harmony in Buddhas nature
    Om Mani Padme Hum

    Dear holy Guru.
    I’m so delighted to read the article: “Cool wind” with the meaning image that: “The Guru is the window and the space connects me with the vast space of the Buddha’s realm”.
    In the past, my mind was only a dark and cramped room. The eight worldly wind in this room makes me even more miserable in the heat of Saha world.
    After following Guru’s guidance, I know how to practice Dharma and my life has been an open room. This room became airy and cool with the light of the right view and the endless winds of blessings from Guru, Avalokitesvara. My life turned to a new page with self-happiness, life happiness and social achievement. And I also realize that the Guru is the door of liberation that we will enter in the future.
    May Guru have good health and live long for the sake of all sentient beings.
    May Covid-19 pandemic be soon over.
    Om Mani Padme Hum.

    Thank you dear Guru

    By reading this lesson, I know that we must pay attention to every thing. We have to be patient and wait for God’s decisions.
    Following Guru’s prescriptions for each one of learners is the best way to moov away in spiritual road.
    Thank you, dear Guru, once again.
