Letter from Bhutan: THE WORDS OF MY PERFECT GURU (Lời vàng Thầy tôi)

Letter from Bhutan: THE WORDS OF MY PERFECT GURU (Lời vàng Thầy tôi)

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.

Your holiness virtuous mind radiates loving-kindness, compassion, sympathetic joy, equanimity and so forth.

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.”

For your unlimited wisdom I am greatly encouraged and pray at your feet

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.”

    Dear Sonam Norbu

    Thanks for very much for your writing “ The word of My Perfect Guru”. Im very impress with your starting “ the conquer of peace and Buddhahood, the supreme holder … pray at your feet”, it show your devotion toward so huge and think about his teaching and after that you have the good results as you feel the freedom form obscuration with the blessings from your holiness discoursers on Buddha dharma  and you have the good connection think about Guru so often and than more you will get the closer englightment because   “ Better than mediating on a hundred thousand deities for ten million kalpas is to think of one’s teacher for a singer instant” ( from “ The words of my perfect Teacher “ by Patrul Rinpoche ) . I look forwarding to read more letter from you.

    May the Guru and his consort live long for the benefit of all sentient being

    May Sonam Norbu achieve all legitimate

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

    Querido Guru : Muchas gracias por compartir ” Las palabras de mi Guru Perfecto ” …Desde la distancia siento la tranquilidad de leer tan maravillosas palabras de sabiduria y compasion. Parece como si el Buda Sakyamuni girara la rueda del Dharma. El compasivo Rinpoche rezo a tus pies. El rey del Dharma del mundo . Su Santidad irradia bondad amorosa, compasion , alegria compasiva ., ecuanimidad. Con el Buda alcanzando su Santidad , el apego, el odio, el orgullo, la ignorancia, los celos y la avaricia, de todos los seres sisntientes pueden ser purificados. La mente altruista de su Santidad posee el conocimiento puro de la verdad y el estado ultimo reconocido de los fenomenos que es el Vacio. Que el Santo Guru tenga salud y pueda vivir muchos años para beneficio de todos los seres sintientes . Que todos los seres esten libres de sufrimiento y sus causas .Que todos los seres encuentren la felicidad y sus causas . OM MANI PADME HUM

      Con hiểu rằng hành giả khi thực hành pháp nên tập trung và không bị xao động, ảnh hưởng bởi những niệm tưởng mông lung. Họ có thể ứng dụng những kiến thức Phật đà có được vào việc thực hành pháp và từ đó có được trí tuệ vì sự lợi lạc của tha nhân.

      Con cầu nguyện hữu tình nhận được sự để tâm chỉ dạy và ơn phước của Thầy từ những bài viết của Thầy.

    Guru Is my guide

    Buddha is my life

    Dharma is my way

    Sangha is my spirit

    Respected Guruji, I bow my head at the lotus feet of Guruji.

    I am Tantra Nirvadeva.

    The writer of this article, Sonum Norbu from Bhutan, a follower of Guruji addresses with over whelming respect, joy and pleasure as ” The words of my PERFECT  Guru ” and uses the word ” PERFECT” which has a meaning of high significance ! as he notices all the virtual qualities of a Great Guru, unlike so many fake Gurus we usually see in this world like wolf in the mask of  sheep!
    Not only it is his opinion, but also we ,  all the followers and members of Song Nguyen Tantra House and Chanhtuduy.com jointly praise with high voice as Our ” PERFECT GURU ” which echoes and rebounds from all nook and corner of theWorld!. That is the greatness of our unmatched and incomparable Guru Song Nguyen Thana.!, Our beloved Guruji, the director of Song Nguyen Tantra House Sonam Norbu is highly impressed  by preachings by the Guruji and says it seems like the Buddha turning the wheel of Dharma, giving the virtual sermon for the innocent beings.! He compares  Guruji in par with the Buddha himself! as it is his genuine feelings. He says Guruji is the greatest and finest protector of all sentient beings and resembles that of Precious motherly care to all sentient beings.Guruji is the embodiment of compassion and loving kindness sympathetic joy and equanimity.He puts his all efforts to mind purification of all sentient beings. In other words Guruji is a beacon light in showing the path of Enlightenment and Liberation to all sentient beings !.
    Sonam Norbu , in this juncture, recollects Acharya Shantideva’s saying “All the happiness in the world derives from the aspirant and in action Bodhicitta and all the miseries in the world derives from wishing worldly pleasures only for oneself.!”
    Guruji’s philosophy of “Adwaitha” that all sentient beings are our parents and all our parents are greatful beings “is highly commendable!
    In my opinion, there is no bound for Knowledge and nothing wrong in knowing the philosophy and Practices of different religions and their spiritual practices that exist in the world. It is for the Dharma Practicioner  to judge which is the right and best Dharma practices to follow in the path of Enlightenment and Liberation.! Buddha’s Dharma teachings and practices as affirmed by Guruji is the best as it is supported by scientific foothold and not based on blind faith and superstitions.! In this context, I remember Leartis ‘s advice to his son in the Shakespeare’s English drama ” As you like it ” which says ” lend thy ears to all but use your own judgement “.! It is applicable in the selection of Dharma practices , your judgement is most important which is ratified by  Buddha too.!
    Om Mani Padme Hum.
    Long live our beloved Guruji for upholding Dharma.
    Dr C H Lakshminarayan.

    dear holy guru. Thank you for publishing the commentary / letter from Sonam Norbu. I completely agree with these lines. It shows you holy Guru the devoted devotion of your disciples and readers worldwide. A big compliment and certainly praise for all your wise articles and your Dharma teaching. Also, my life has changed completely thanks to you holy guru and the dharma teaching. I have found peace in my meditations and precious power to see life as it. Nothing is permanent and we can train our minds positively. It fills me with joy to live the Boddhicitta and practice the Dharma daily. For me personally, there is no more valuable religion or philosophy of life than Buddhism. We can practice the Dharma at any time and expand our knowledge. With the help of our holy guru, we will succeed. It is in our hands. we know the triggers of suffering and can strengthen our minds and our hearts through compassion love and positive elements. My heart is filled with joy and happiness that I can bring Buddhism closer to people here in Germany. I am grateful for every article and the time that you holy guru spend teaching us. May you be blessed with good health and happiness. I bow in awe of you as our wise teacher.  May all be free from suffering and successful on the path of enlightenment. May all beings the happiness of Buddha s nature. Om Mani Padme Hum
