FROM THE HEART OF A CHRONIC INSOMNIAC (Tiếng lòng của người mất ngủ lâu năm)

I myself like practicing meditation. I have read some books on meditation and I found out that sitting meditation for long hours a day is very difficult for me because I am busy with work,  with my family and other daily activities. I tried to sit in meditation many times but I was failure due to my busy day. In addition,  when I was out of the meditating hours, I have still suffered from sadness,  worries and misery. I have not actually found the inner peace in my mind. When I am in the bad condition to sit in meditation because of its hardship. I have known that Guru will teach the methods to meditate in daily life. I am eager to come to Vietnam for this useful lessons of meditation.

peaceful atmosphere with Guru and other disciples

On 26th July,  I was in Song Nguyen Tantra House for learning meditation. Through Guru’s guidance with the translation of Mat Hue Phap,  I have learnt the valuable and practical methods of meditation which is easy to practice in daily life and accumulating boundless merits,  training the mind become pure with wisdom; benefit self and others. My journey to Vietnam for learning meditation this time has given the good fruits with the wonderful harvest.
How easy the meditation is through the way of Guru’s guidance. It is simply to count 10 details on holy image of Avalokitesvara as deity visualization. The especial thing is that I am free stopping  between the period of counting basing on my physical activities. It makes my mind comfortable and not tired.
In addition,  looking at the holy image of Avalokitesvara with deep devotion is another method to meditate taught by Guru. I have learnt that only looking at the holy image of Avalokitesvara with devotion help me collect countless merit. And making devotion towards Guru is the best and fast way to accumulate boundless merit and develop wisdom. The third method Guru taught me is to visualize the holy letters of Mani mantra. I should look at and remember the shape of each letter in Mani mantra with opening the eyes. And when I practice as much as I can and I remember all letters of Mani mantra,  I should close the eyes to visualize Mani mantra in my mind. It is the forth method.

Practicing Lotus walking with mantra

I am especially impressed on the fifth and sixth method that Guru taught me. It helps me practice meditation in daily activities. They are walking with mantra and meditation on bodhicitta. It is easy for me to apply these methods in my life.  I go walking in the early morning daily. And with Mani mantra, when I step left foot ahead,  I read Om Mani,  right foot,  I read Padme Hum. I have learnt that walking with Mani mantra supports my health and makes me confident in every foot. I am myself a shy man. This method to meditate is useful and easy to make me confident, which leads the success in life.

Meditation on bodhicitta is a special method to easily develop bodhicitta in every daily activity. And Bodhicitta is the core of Mahayana. In Lotus suttra,  the Buddha stressed that all good deeds we have created without bodhicitta become evil doings. Atisha also confirmed the importance of bodhicitta by a teaching it goes: though a practitioner sit in meditation as firmly as the mountain, though a practitioner visualize the holy image of yidam diety as clearly and vividly as he can see him in his open eyes, it is so much less merit than developing bodhicitta. Now I can make use of daily physical  activities like sitting down,  standing up,  drinking,  eating… to practice bodhicitta with prayers. How amazing it is! May all sentient beings achieve the happiness of Buddha’s nature.
I felt like home away from home. As if I was in my second home. Away from stress and buzzy day to day life it was very peaceful here. I was missing my family on one side but on the other side I felt happy because friends around me here Guru’s place don’t talk about politics or enter into gossips. Whereas in my place I’m surrounded by people who keep talking about politics and argue with each other just to boost their ego. People around me in my place always keep evil eyes on other people’s business and prosperity and try to talk bad about others family. Due to which I stay away from most of the people in my country. I am person who rejoice and feel good when others develop and prosperous in life.

having lunch at a resort

I find people like me in Guru’s place. They are Guru’s disciples. They have much patience, tolerance, welcoming heart that brings some kind of peace in me. Even though I don’t understand their language but still I feel deep somewhere that we had some connections in our past lives.

All of a sudden I felt I was missing my mother, but after seeing Dharma friends I could overcome this feeling. I felt as if I was a family member of our Guru and Dharma friends. I have very rarely experienced this kind of feeling of oneness in my life. I had read this in books and seen in movies but I was surprised to experience this moment in my life with Guru’s blessings.

at Vên Vên coffee shop

I always feel like to enter into lotus room and meditate silently during night times as everyone will be sleeping. But due to some reasons I feel it’s not good to stay alone in lotus room during night.

Sanctuary resort

One more interesting thing I found here was my Dharma friends don’t force me to eat what they like. I’m free to eat anything of my choice. But whereas in my work place people around me keep forcing me to eat the things which I don’t like. People around me there back in my place keep suffering from wrong eating habits and they also force others to get suffering which is not good.
I felt the roads here are well maintained by government as they are neat and clean with no pitholes.

at Sanctuary resort

I pray our Dharma friends are always protected and guarded and achieve success in both worldly life and in spiritual life. I pray for their success.

It’s very difficult to find people with same thinking and interest these days. I was very much moved when I could meet them in Song Nguyen Tantra House who despite of many challenges and responsibilities come up to spend some time with Guru for listening and following his teachings in their lives. I think it’s Buddha’s blessings on Guru and Guru’s blessings on us which made us meet each other, otherwise it would be impossible for me to meet you all Dharma friends and travel so long alone to this country Vietnam, which I never dreamed.

at May Café

Even my friends have never thought that I would travel abroad to foreign countries as I am very sensitive and shy person who never speaks. Few of strangers near my uncle home advised me to apply for passport but then I laughed at them saying I would never require it as I won’t go outside my country in my life. But to my surprise I landed here in Guru’s place.

Once I had a dream about Guru teaching me near lake and I was nervous. This dream came true today 28 July 2018. As we were with Guru in May Café

with Hum the cat

I sat next to Guru and enjoy the peaceful atmosphere here. Guru always gave teaching when we stop at anywhere. He talked in Vietnamese with other disciples,  although I do not understand, I still love listening to his talking. His voice is so close with me. I have listened to his teachings daily before bedtime. When I looked at his disciples,  their faces seem to be brighter while listening to Guru’s story. They often laughed with joy. Guru looked at me and said to me that he was not speaking English and though I did not understand but it was good for me to listen to his voice. It made me get merit. Sometimes,  he asked me: “are you happy? “.  It made my heart filled with joy and happiness. He is so friendly, close and kind with me,  his disciples and everything around him. There is no distance between him and other objects around him. He treats his disciples and learners so closely and  warmly. I found his disciples free and comfortable when being next to him. It is so different from other teachers who seems to create the distance with followers.

Guru is feeding the fishes living in the Buddha’s footprint pond

feeding cats

Not only do his disciples want to close with him,  his fishes in the pond like closing him. I happened to look at a beautiful sight on the first day I stayed in Song Nguyen Tantra House. At that time Guru stood next to the pond and told the fishes coming in. Out of my surprise, the fishes one by one swim towards him with joy. The cats do, too. They are always with Guru and Guru feeds them every morning. Some cats seem not to want to separate from Guru. They are so cute and lovely.

I am so happy coming to meet Guru this time. I feel the deep compassion with his behavior,  his smiles, his voices and his face. I have learnt much from Guru. But I feel so sad because I have not done anything good to Guru and Song Nguyen Tantra House. I will try my best to practice diligently what Guru has taught me and introduce pure mind yoga to everyone who I meet in my country.

    Dear Guru thank you for posting my feelings on chantduy.com

    I feel very happy to see my article get posted in short time in official website of song nguyen tantra house. Not every foreigner gets chance to receive teachings and spend time with Guru. Thank you for officially teaching me 6 precious methods of practicising meditation and boddhichita mind.

    Thanks again to Guru, his consort and all Dharma friends for understanding and helping me.

    May Guru live long and protected and get enlightened.

    May all beings be free from suffering and get enlightened.

    Respected Guruji I bow my head at your lotus feet.

    It gives me great pleasure to read this article which shows the hospitality shown by Guruji at song Nguyen Tantra House whoever visits to have darshan of Guruji seeking Dharma teachings.

    The generosity , love and compassion  shown by Guruji is beautifully represented by pictures displayed in the article and pictures themselves silently talk about the magnanimous qualities and greatness of Guruji.!

    The question  ‘ Are you happy? ‘__ put forth to the visitor by Guruji will reflect about Guruji ‘s anxiety  and caring about  others  and addiction to the spiritual policy and quality of ‘  Be happy and make others happy’ in other words Bodhicitta. !

    This  nature of Guruji, no doubt, will attract  many more foreigners or visitors like a magnetic power  from nook and corner of the world seeking  Buddha’s teachings from this presently living Buddha.!

  3. Dear Tantra Upatissa,

    Thank you for your sharing. I am happy for you that you have cultivated a fruitful trip by not only having amazing memories with Guru, his consort and Dharma brothers but also utilizing your dreams to the fullest. This is a demonstrated proof for the Dharma teaching that said all your secret dreams will be fulfilled while you are practicing Dharma. I am motivated by your feeling that “…Making devotion to Guru is the best way to accumulate boundless merit and develop wisdom”. I found that you and your devotion to Guru did not seem to be separated by the language barrier. Congratulation on making your trip here, going beyond your comfort horizon by the affinity with the Guru and being taught six methods of practicing meditation by Guru.

    May Guru and his consort be healthy and long-lived for the sake of all sentient being.

    May all sentient being achieve the Buddha’s happiness.

    Om Mani Padme Hum.

    dear holy guru. I bow to your feet and I would like to comment on your article and the letter from Tantra Upatissa. This article gave me great pleasure to read and I conclude that everyone can learn the right meditations. You holy Guru teach us the Dharma and are a wise teacher to us. I also had my initial difficulties and could feel Tantra Upatissa. But I did not give up either. I was very touched by the videos and the photos and it shows your kindness and compassion when one of your students needs help. Just as each of us starts to learn the correct methodology in meditation and yet needed or needed help. So we may be grateful that our holy guru teaches us and can teach everyone the right methodology. Even though each one of us has a busy life, we can learn Dharma and meditation from our holy guru. Our Guru guides us on the right path and I would like to meditate once in the Nguyen Tantra House with our holy Guru and the Sangha. This is a dream of mine that I would like to realize. This article gave me courage that we can all learn the right methodology. Thanks also for the beautiful photos. May our holy Guru life long for the sake of all sentient beings. May all beings achieve the happiness of Buddha s nature. Om Mani Padme Hum

      Con xin phép được dịch comment của đạo hữu Tantra Mikaya sang tiếng Việt như sau:

      “Kính bạch Thầy tâm linh tôn quý! 

      Con xin cúi đầu đảnh lễ dưới chân Thầy. 

      Con xin được viết đôi dòng cảm niệm của mình sau khi đọc những lời dạy của Thầy trong bài và đọc bài viết của đạo hữu Tantra Upatissa. 

      Bài viết của đạo hữu Tantra Upatissa mang đến cho con niềm vui và sự hoan hỷ bởi vì con hiểu rằng ai cũng có thể hành thiền khi có được phương pháp đúng. Chính Thầy tôn quý đã dạy chúng con những phương pháp phù hợp để hành thiền. Thầy là bậc Đạo sư trí tuệ chỉ dạy chúng con thực hành pháp. Ban đầu con cũng gặp những khó khăn như đạo hữu Tantra Upatissa nên con đồng cảm với đạo hữu ấy.  Và con đã không từ bỏ con đường Phật pháp. 

      Con rất xúc động khi con được nghe bài giảng,  được xem những bức ảnh được đăng trong các bài trên trang nhà. Những hình ảnh đó nói lên lòng tốt,  sự bi mẫn của Thầy dành cho học trò và luôn ở bên cạnh học trò, giúp đỡ học trò khi học trò gặp khó khăn,  cần sự giúp đỡ. Chúng con là những học trò mới chập chững trên hành trình này và may mắn được Thầy dạy cho phương pháp đúng để hành thiền,  và chúng con rất cần sự giúp đỡ chỉ bảo của Thầy. 

      Chúng con vô cùng may mắn và ơn phước được Thầy tôn quý chỉ dạy cho chúng con và hữu tình phương pháp đúng để thực hành hành pháp. Mặc dù chúng con bận rộn với cuộc sống nhưng nhờ Thầy tôn quý chỉ dạy,  chúng con vẫn có được cơ hội thực hành pháp,  được hành thiền dễ dàng. Thầy dạy chúng con thực hành chánh đạo và con có ước nguyện được một lần đến Mật Gia Song Nguyễn để được Thầy chỉ dẫn hành thiền cùng các đạo hữu. Đó là ước mơ mà con mong muốn được thực hiện. Bài viết này tiếp thêm cho con sức mạnh và cho con niềm tin rằng tất cả chúng con đều có thể được học phương pháp đúng phù hợp với chúng con. 

      Con cảm tạ ơn Thầy đã chỉ dạy và Thầy đã đăng những bức ảnh đẹp. 

      Con cầu nguyện cho sức khỏe và sự trường thọ của Thầy Cô vì sự lợi lạc của tất cả chúng sanh. 

      Cầu nguyện tất cả chúng sanh thành tựu hạnh phúc của Phật tánh. 

      Om Mani Padme Hum. “

                         We feel proud for meeting Guru Ji and his dharma friends and learn  three lessons from him, Guru Ji has dynamic power to attract all. His amicable behavior with all disciples are same. We really thankful to him as well as his dharma friends for the hospitality and sweet words. 

                      Dear dharma friend, this is your second visit to Guru Ji and you knows better than me about Guru Ji’s learning. Congratulations. I was trying to contact you during your stay at Guru Ji’s place.  Spread  all good things among common man  who dose not have capacity to visit Guru Ji and try to change the attitude of all to see the beautiful and peaceful life. Please always use Ji ( Sir)  Guru Ji  not Guru. He is a respective  person.

    My hearty Regards to Guru Ji.

    Hope you do not mind…I have no intention to hurt any one.

    Dear Tantra Upatissa,

    I’m touched by your sharing about our Guru and Song Nguyen Tantra House.

    Thanks to Guru’s blessing, your second trip to Vietnam this time was smoothlier than the last one. Especially, your dream of learning meditation from Guruji has been fulfilled perfectly. We all had joyful moments with Guru, listening to His teachings, His dharma jokes as well as time of being driven by Guru to other places for visiting, sightseeing and enjoying many delicious meals and drinks. They all would be our unforgettable memories. From that we realize more and more noble qualities from Guru even in his daily activities that we’re so lucky to meet and to be His dicisples/learners. Thanks to Guru, we have another family, a true home with happiness in present life and heading together to liberation next life.

    Generally, I would like to say congratulation to your successful trip. May you enjoy in practicing the six methods of meditation taught by Guru.

    May Guru and his consort be healthy and long-lived for the sake of all sentient beings.

    May all sentient beings achieve the Buddha’s happiness.

    Om mani padme hum!

  10. Dear Tantra Upatissa,

    I am elated by your article. Honestly, I am happy that you had altered so much in this second time coming back to Song Nguyen Tantra house. You look healthier and happier than the first time you come here.

    Because of our language difference, I can’t communicate with you much, but from the bottom of my heart, I don’t feel any distance between us. On the contrary, I feel so acquainted with you. Therefore I know that we have been dharma brothers for so many lives.

    Due to Guru’s blessings, you had good time in Viet Nam with some memorable moments. I’m happy that you felt as if you were a family member of us, such a wonderful experience, right? I also like your sharing that “It’s difficult to find people with the same thinking and interest these days”, I totally agree with you about that ‘cause i know that that is one of the reasons why you try to overcome your shyness and come to Viet Nam. But I think the more difficult thing is that we can meet a Holy Guru in this life, who can give us teachings and inspire us to practice dharma, so that we can accumulate merit and wisdom, free our mind from suffering and follow his footsteps from now to the supreme enlightenment.

    Thanks again for your sharing. I wish you will have a chance to comeback to Viet Nam soon. May you achieve all legitimate wishes due to your diligent cultivation.

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

    May all beings achieve the happiness of Buddhahood

    Om Mani Padme Hum.

  11. Dear Tantra Upatissa,

    I am delighted to read your article.

    Talking about meditation, many people may think that it is just sitting and closing eyes (inactivate meditation), but thanks to teachings from Holy Guru, we could understand the real meaning of meditation and we can learn the easier meditation methods. We can meditate all the day with footsteps, breaths, counting 10 details on the image of the Holy Avalokitesvara, etc. Little by little, our mind can be purified and we feel happier when we are able to get rid of sufferings, worries.

    I think that all of us have a big fortunate when we can meet Holy Guru in this life. May we will not miss this precious and be able to follow Guru’s steps to enlightenment.

    May Holy Guru and his consort live long for sake of all sentient beings.

    May all sentient beings achieve happiness of Buddhahood.

    Om ah hum.

    Dear Tantra Upatissa

    I am delighted to read about your thoughts on the second trip to Song Nguyen Tantra House. It’s such a surprise to know about your dream of learning Dharma from the Guru on the side of a lake and miraculously, it has come true. I still remember holy moments when you and us sitting in the Lien Hoa Dai (Lotus Throne) listening attentively the Guru’s sermon or joyful talks near the fountain in the Sanctuary resort. These are beautiful memories that we all shall never forget. I am elated to see you learn the Guru’s lesson on meditation eagerly and know that from now on, Song Nguyen Tantra House has another vajra brother who shares common interest in Dharma and strives for the ultimate goal of his life, that is Liberation once and for all. I am grateful for the opportunity to meet the Guru in this life who has compassionately led me on the journey of liberation. And I am glad we, vajra brothers, can meet one another under the roof of Song Nguyen Tantra House. Thank you for this touching article.

    May the Guru and his consort live long for the benefit and happiness of all sentient beings
    May Tantra Upatissa be diligent in practicing Dharma and fulfill all legitimate wishes
    May all sentient beings be surrounded by the blessings of the Trinity

Good to hear that there are cats and fishes who have the opportunity to listen Dharma. You seems a dedicated and committed to learning. I find you abled to start your retreat where mostly people end; EMPTINESS..

    Also you have a great reverence to your Guru, and I think that is an important thing for a disciple to have in order to learn and grow..

    I wish you good luck; You can practice and share with your fellows what you had learn from your Guru.

    Such a wonderful thing to know the experience big our brother Tantra Upatissa who got the chance to enjoy your company and learned your teaching directly. It has been my wish to have it experience too. Though, I have been invited twice by friend Mat Dieu Hang,  but declined the opportunities due to some priorities that I chose. As I said, I’m still hoping for another chance getting in touch directly by your wisdom.

    May all your teachings touches all beings and let it be their vehicle towards the path of enlightenment.

    Dear Guru,

    A Facebook friend named Violet Tran recommend your site to me and has sent me a couple of article’s, including this one. I am new to Buddhism converting from Christianity. I live in America and feel this disciples loneliness about not finding people with common interests.

    You seem to be a great man with a lot of wisdom, and the compassion to turn that wisdom into a way to help others. I feel I have benefited just from browsing your articles.

    I wish you many blessings and great years to come.

    Truly yours,

    Shannon Tyler Ealy.

    Thank you for sharing your experiences.

    I only know from my experience that starting out is hard and to keep it up daily does take a little discipline. But then it becomes comfortable and days without meditation are missed. I also know that it is hard when a person has to make a livelihood and has a family and relationships that require attention. Placing priorities in ones life and organizing ones time seems to me to be a part of purification. May everyone be well and find the time to study and meditate within their busy lives.
