Letter from America: HOW DID I THINK AFTER A HEART SURGERY? (Tôi cảm nghĩ gì sau cuộc phẩu thuật tim?)

Lying down in the bed, I sometimes feel the pain in my body. I can see the impermanence of this life in every moment the pain coming to me. I understand the teaching of Buddha in Dhammapada. It goes:

147. “Behold this beautiful body, a mass of sores,
a heaped-up (lump), diseased, much thought of,
in which nothing lasts, nothing persists.”  

I am much luckier than many other beings because I have found Guru and have learnt from Guru as well as get the protection from Guru. I have understood that nothing is impermanent and I learn how to keep my mind balanced in any cases. The most important thing in my journey is that Guru is always with me at any time of my difficulties. He helps me out and he shows me the light at the end of the tunnel. He gives me the faith in myself and in the ability to get enlightenment as a Buddhist practitioner.

The most important thing in my journey is that Guru is always with me at any time of my difficulties

It is not possible to get successful without a Guru. In this world, it is not possible to proceed without a Guru. You will need a Guru until the very end. When do we need school teachers? Don’t you need them when you wish to become educated? And what if you do not want to study? If you do not want to benefit from anything then there is no point in making someone your Guru, but if you wish to benefit, then you need to have a Guru. It is not mandatory; it is voluntary. If you want to learn, you need a teacher. If you want to know about spirituality, then you need a Guru, and if you do not wish to know anything, then it does not matter. There is no law that says you have to do it this way. Here, even if you want to go to the station, you need a Guru. Therefore, won’t you need a Guru for spirituality? You need a guru at every level.

When a person is lost in any situation, he will need someone to guide him in the right direction. That person becomes their Guru because he sheds light. A Guru meaning someone who gives proper guidance at any given time in life; be it a master in spirituality. Everyone should maintain the intention of being a disciple in every situation. A true disciple is the one who grasps all that the Guru has to teach them, with the utmost humility and highest sincerity. Neither worldly success nor spiritual achievement can be attained without a Guru. This is the reason why we need a guru until we achieve liberation. Especially when you have to walk alone on the path of spirituality, when you are between death and life, no one can help you. Your wife, your husband, your children or your best friend cannot help you. You walk alone with your karma. Only Guru can help you. I have experienced this and I feel clearly the most important role of a Guru in my life. As Patrul Rinpoche wrote in the book “The Words of My Perfect Taecher” as follows: No sutra, tantra, or shastra speaks of any being ever attaining perfect buddhahood without having followed a spiritual teacher.”

“No sutra, tantra, or shastra speaks of any being ever attaining perfect buddhahood without having followed a spiritual teacher.”

I have had many surgeries in my life and have cried before every single one even when only minor surgery. I am always so scared of any surgeries. However, three weeks ago, I got the bad news from my doctor; I had to make the heart surgery. Surprisingly, I did not feel scared this time. I spent more time reading articles and doing comments. I have a strong belief that when I read and comment, I can connect with Guru and Guru is always with me. When I can connect with Guru, my bad karma must be purified and his pure energy brings me the strength to move forward.

I have a strong belief that when I read and comment, I can connect with Guru and Guru is always with me

One day before my heart surgery, I read and comment as usual and at the end of my comment, I pray for the spiritual support from Guru. Guru responded to me and he was so compassionate to pray for my safe surgery. I was so happy and moved by his words. He cares about every learner, even the one who lives far away like me. I felt calm and peaceful knowing Guru was there with me. I well prepared for the surgery even though the doctor said to me that I had a small chance I would live through this heart surgery. I also told Violet that I could miss this small chance to live after the heart surgery.

I could miss this small chance to live after the heart surgery.

There was a problem during surgery and I had to be woken during surgery and stay awake until it was finished. This was painful and I did start crying. I had a nurse holding my hand. I started reciting the om mani padme hum mantra. It was from nearly a whisper and when the nurse asked what I was saying I did not answer only continued to recite. She leaned close to hear me and was soon changing with me. She held my hand and chanted to reinforce the blessings from Guru and Buddha. This has never happened to me. I could feel clearly the blessings I got from Guru and Buddha at that time. The Guru in whom all the attributes are complete is the embodiment of the compassionate wisdom of all Buddhas of the ten directions, appearing in the form of an ordinary human simply to benefit beings.

The teacher with infinite qualities complete

Is the wisdom and compassion of all Buddhas

Appearing in human form for beings’ sake.

He is the unequalled source of all accomplishments

(A quote from The Words of My Perfect Teachers by Patrul Rinpoche)

Dear holy Guru

I thank you for your support and protection of me during my surgery. You have woken my eyes. I still have a lot to learn as 2 years is not enough to learn it all and I still need reminded of things I should focus on and things I should and should not be doing and saying. Right view, right speech, right practice, I’m still learning and still falling short. I see that I’m not perfect and that I need chantuduy.com and you too keep learning and practicing. My memory is not good. Many things I need to review and with your articles I have access to do this from my guru, the guru I trust and believe in. Not only was I not supposed to survive my surgery but me being awake during it put me at higher risk yet you protected me. You and Mantra held my faith in a scary moment in my life. I survived and did very well through the surgery. Thank you holy Guru. You are a blessing in do many ways. I look forward to continue reading your articles.

Tantra Amishuta

May you live long and well and may Tantra house continue to grow.

May all sentient beings be blessed and protected.

Om mani padme hum.

    Dear Tantra Amishuta!
    One day I heard your news: wait for heart surgery! I worried about it so I was praying for you. I have just read your letter from America, and I glad to know that you sill have a life now. I am more delighted to know you remembered about Guru, and chanted mantra “om mani padme hum” during time’s moment of surgery. In the end the results are worth it. You wrote “When I can connect with Guru, my bad karma must be purified and his pure energy brings me the strength to move forward…”. I think it is your faith in the Guru and the Buddha that can do this miracle, not from my spiritual energy. It’s time to relax, you should care of you heath! If you requite my advice, I think you must keep your banlance of mind!

    Dear Tantra Amishuta,

    I’m deeply touched by your article, thank you for your sharing. At the moment of danger, you have found your strength. I could only think about the operating room where you courageously chant Om Mani Padme Hum, but the pain and the blessing that you felt must be beyond my imagination.

    I’m sadden to know about your past and many surgeries that you have gone through. But more importantly, I amazed by how much your belief in the Guru and Dharma have transform your mind this time. “Mind-transformation” is indeed a miracle. The tears of the past only highlight the courage and strength you have today, thanks to the Guru, “whom all the attributes are complete is the embodiment of the compassionate wisdom of all Buddhas of the ten directions.” May the Guru has good health and longevity for the benefit of all sentient beings.

    I pray for all your rightful wishes to be fulfilled. May the sufferings of all sentient being be eased. May the Covid-19 pandemic will soon be over.

    Om Mani Padme Hum.

    Kính bạch Thầy,
    Con vô cùng xúc động lẫn hoan hỷ với những chia sẻ trên, có lẽ đạo hữu Tantra Amishuta không quen diễn tả nhưng con cũng cảm nhận được sự khó khăn của ca phẫu thuật tim của đạo hữu. Con không dám tưởng tượng tới những gì đạo hữu đã trải qua.
    Nếu là một người khác có lẽ sẽ đau khổ, hoảng sợ, và có thể ảnh hưởng đến quá trình mổ, nhưng với người đã được sự để tâm và chỉ dạy của Thầy như Tantra Amishuta thì có sự khác biệt rõ ràng. Đạo hữu đã không còn lo sợ, bi quan như những lần khác, mà tràn đầy tinh thần vô uý và niềm tin vững chắc vào Thầy, Phật, Pháp, Tăng.
    Tiếng thần chú Om Mani Padme Hum và niềm tin vào vị Thầy có lẽ là chỗ dựa duy nhất của chúng con vào những thời điểm khó khăn cũng như mãi về sau.
    Con cảm tạ ơn Thầy đã là chỗ dựa tâm linh vững chắc để chúng con vượt qua mọi khổ đau trong đời này, có được niềm hạnh phúc miên viễn đời sau.
    Con cầu nguyện đạo hữu Tantra Amishuta sức khoẻ và hanh thông thế sự.
    Con thành tâm cầu nguyện cho sức khoẻ và sự trường thọ của Thầy vì sự nghiệp hoằng dương chánh pháp.
    Cầu nguyện khổ đau của chúng sanh được lắng dịu.
    Con cầu nguyện dịch bệnh Covid-19 sớm được tiêu trừ.
    Om Mani Padme Hum.


    Dear Guru,
    I am extremely touched and rejoiced with the sharing, perhaps brother Tantra Amishuta is not usually expresses feelings, but I also feel somewhat the difficulty, I dare not imagine what brother Tantra Amishuta have gone through.
    If it was someone else, it would probably suffer, panic, and have some negative affect to the operation, but for someone who has received the protection and guidance of Guru like brother Tantra Amishuta, there is a difference. Brother is no longer afraid and pessimistic like other times, but are full of fearless spirit and firm belief in the Guru, Buddha, Dharma, and Sangha.
    The Om Mani Padme Hum mantra and the faith in the Guru are probably our only support in difficult times as well as beyond.
    I thank you for being a spiritual support for us to overcome all suffering in this life, to have eternal happiness.
    I pray to Tantra Amishuta for good health and well-being.
    I sincerely pray for Guru’s health and longevity for the sake of sentient being.
    May all sentient beings free from suffering and get enlightened.
    I pray that Covid-19 pandemic will be soon eliminated.
    Om Mani Padme Hum.

  4. Cao Diệu Chánh Tấn says:

    Dear Tantra Amishuta,
    I am delighted to read your sharing in this article. I am happy to know that you are getting better after the heart surgery. It is quite an amazing experience that I have ever heard: when someone had to be woken during surgery and stay awake until it was finished. And during that painful moment, you still remember and recited the Mani mantra. I believe it is your strong faith in the holy Guru, in Buddha, Dharma and Sangha that help you to connect with the holy Guru and get the blessing of Avalokiteshvara through Guru’s transmission. Usually, when a person knows that he or she had to have surgery, he or she would feel worried or even scared. But in your case, you took action and put your faith into the holy Guru by spending more time to read and comment on Chanhtuduy.com. Your devotion and belief in the holy Guru is quite a great example for me.
    May holy Guru have good health and live long for the sake of all sentient beings.
    May Tantra Amishuta get joyful and successful on the path to enlightenment.
    May the epidemic of Covid-19 come to end soon.
    May all sentient beings avoid the flood disaster. All difficulties will be overcome soon.

    Kính bạch Thầy,

    Con hoan hỷ tán thán bài cảm niệm sâu sắc, chân thành, đầy lòng biết ơn và sùng kính Đao sư của đạo hữu Tantra Amishuta. Con hoan hỷ với chia sẻ của đạo hữu ấy về tầm quan trọng của việc cần phải có một vị Thầy nếu muốn thành tựu dù là thế sự hay tâm linh và con hoan hỷ tán thán chia sẻ của đạo hữu Tantra Amishuta về thế nào là người học trò đích thực – “là người đón nhận tất cả những chỉ dạy từ vị Thầy với sự trân quý và biết ơn vô hạn”, và con cũng hoan hỷ tán thán niềm tin mãnh liệt của đạo hữu Tantra Amishuta rằng “đọc và comment tức là kết nối và khi đã kết nối được với vị Thầy thì nghiệp xấu sẽ được tịnh hóa và từ trường thanh tịnh của Ngài sẽ tiếp thêm sức mạnh, động lực cho chúng trò bước tới”.

    Con hoan hỷ tán thán thiện hạnh của đạo hữu Tantra Amishuta đã nhớ tưởng và cầu nguyện lên vị Thầy vào những giờ phút khó khăn nhất với niềm tin mãnh liệt và thật hoan hỷ khi ơn phước gia trì của Bốn tôn thông qua kênh vận chuyển vị Thầy đã hiển bày dưới những ngôn ngữ biểu trưng thật vi diệu và xúc động.

    Đệ tử hoan hỷ tán thán công hạnh vị Thầy.

  6. Cao Diệu Mật Thủy says:

    Dear Tantra Amishuta,
    Your story is so frightening but touching. The moment standing on the line between life and death scares all of us. In that case, you did remember and put your faith on Guru, reciting the mantra Om mani padme hum with devotion to Guru. This detail touched me. I learn that only Guru can be a concrete shelter for us even when we are in terrifying situations. No one else can help us at that time. Your lively experience reminds me of the significant debt of gratitude towards Guru, helping us not only in this life but throughout the journey of eliminating sufferings to attain liberation. We’re are so fortunate to have Guru in this life.
    Thank you for your sharing. I’m delighted with your miracle survival and recovery from the surgery, which proven the wonder of Dharma.
    May Guru have good health and longevity for the benefit of all sentient beings.
    May the epidemic of Covid-19 come to an end soon.
    May our country avoid flood disaster and soon overcome all difficulties.
    Om mani padme hum!

    Dear Holy Guru
    Thank you for sharing this article from Tantra Amishuta. Very lovely to read

    I have much imbalance in life and wonder if I would be allowed to recite a mantra?
    May Guru be in good health
    May all sentient beings feel the beauty of Buddhas nature
    Om Mani Padme Hum

  8. Cao Diệu Mật Từ says:

    Dear Tantra Amishuta,
    Thank you for your inspiring and touching sharing. I am glad that you got through the surgery well. I admired your bravery to stand the pain during the surgery thanks to your strong faith and devotion to Guru. It is said that when a person maintains a strong mental state, no physical pain can devastate him. In your case, your faith in Guru is so strong that you keep his teachings and his words with you all the time through all highs and lows, that helps to you get through all difficulties, pains and sufferings. That is also the only “belonging” that we bring with us in this journey, not family, friends or anyone, anything else. Recently by reading your sharing, as well as other foreign disciples of Guru, I have recognized that the power of compassion from a Guru has no bound. He has been taking care of our spiritual destinies no matter where we are, and his teachings has tremendously changed each of us, in every action of our speech, mind and body. Your writing which is full of words of Guru devotion is a great example for that. Reflecting on many people out there who have been immersing themselves in reading books and sutras, searching for well-known Buddhist teachers, showing off their knowledge and history, etc., they are still encountering a variety of sufferings and have no idea of mind transformation and the real meaning of Guru devotion; we are so lucky to have our own experiences and develop Guru devotion naturally. The difference was made because our Guru paid attention to our spiritual destinies by all skillful and flexible means, which was proved not only by his teachings but also by his actual actions, his care to every disciple. It has never been so clear about Guru devotion both in theory and in practice as in Song Nguyen Tantra House. Thank you for your sharing. May you recover soon after the operation. I am looking forward to reading more of your sharing in the future.
    May Guru have good health and longevity for the benefit of all sentient beings.
    May all sentient beings’ sufferings be eased.
    Om mani padme hum.

    Dear guru,
    I’ve been so touched reading this heartfelt sharing. I’ve imagined the moment that Tantra Amishuta went through the heart surgery in a woken state, it must have been difficult and scary. But fortunately, everything happened like a miracle and one more time, I witnessed the immeasurable blessings bestowed from Yidam through the transmission channel of Guru.
    Dear Guru,
    Through this valuable experience of Tantra Amishuta, I know that nothing is more important than the faith in Guru, especially when we are in an emergency situation. Due to that, it is much more necessary for us to nurture and develop our pure devotion from now, in each every moment of our existence.
    I am glad to hear this good news from Amishuta, I pray for her to get well soon. Once again, I would like to thank Amishuta for her inspiring sharing, it actually helps me alot in remembering impermanence of life and reinforcing belief in Guru and Dharma.
    May Guru have good health and longevity for the benefit of all sentient beings.

  21. TantraMikaya (jane) says:

    Dear holy Guru Good evening from Berlin with Love and Respect I am so happy to read this article. I felt so sorry for this Buddhist practitioner, but at the same time it was so great to read what gives him strength. My special thanks go to this wonderful and great article that all of us practitioners understand that our health is most important. Life is so precious and can come to an end very quickly. There is so much we can learn when we trust our holy guru and his wise wisdom.
    An essential basis of our belief is wisdom, courage and compassion, which we want to continuously achieve and maintain through our daily practice. Shakyamuni said in the Lotus Sutra: “Its main role is to enable normal people to draw on their inner resources of wisdom, courage and compassion in fulfilling life’s inevitable challenges. To enable everyone to enjoy a life of unlimited freedom and indestructible happiness. ”
    With this we also enable wisdom, courage and compassion to be activated in our lives. Chanting is the approach, the realization that what we will inevitably receive as a great gift in our practice. I myself use the mantra Om Mani Padme Hum to let pains go. Through this article letter from America, I realized that even in the most difficult of situations, Buddha is our holy Guru with us. With this certainty we can trust and our daily life with its articles help us to walk the path of enlightenment in every situation. The courage of the author in this article is exemplary.
    His courage is an expression of willpower, i.e. strength. Power of the spirit that enables us to pursue a knowledge, courage is therefore also to be able to master our innermost fear. In our faith we express this anew every day. Regular meditation, praying and singing is courage, the courage to profess our faith and the wisdom to become aware of our own Buddha nature. May our holy Guru and his consort life long for the sake of all sentient beings. May all beings achieve the Happiness of Buddhas nature. May Covid 19 go away soon and all be healthy and blessed 🙏. Om Mani Padme Hum

      I like your comment. Thank you for adding new insights into the courage of Buddhist practitioners who build up the bravery to confront difficulties and challenges through strong faith to Guru and Buddhist teachings. That is indeed unthinkable to normal people, it is not only an expression of will power but also a determination in maintaining firmly in the path one has chosen. The more frequently you remind yourself of your Guru and Buddhist teachings, the more courageous you will become.

Isn’t that amazing, when a moment of gruesome suddenly becomes the moment of blessing because we have faith in the Dharma, in Guru?
    It is often that in our most vulnerable moments, we realize what truly matters. I congrats you on your successful operation, but more importantly, on you being reborn with a firm belief in Guru, in Dharma. I pray for your soon recovery.

    I surrender to Hon. GURU.
    Guru is most important in life . Mother and Guru have same important place in the life of each one.Mother is first Guru during childhood upto the middle school. Teacher is teaching to the disciple / student which is to inform .We can not exactly classified betwen spirituality and materialistic , materialistic information is external and the spirituality is the part of internal body and mind study. Guru is required here to distinguish between these two factors. Spirituality or spiritualism is to identify by the teacher or The Guru.Guru inhence the spirituality in one’s mind , Without knowledge of Spirituality the human life is uncertain. For the certainty in materialistic life human required spiritual knowledge which can be provided by the Guru. Vabdamee Guru.

      I thank you for your comment. I like it because it is meaningful. I think you know and understand many things but you are humble. I just can do very things as Buddha taught in the past.

    It is difficult for me to continue practicing meditation, my thoughts are of hatred and resentment. I lost my job, I lost my wife, I lost all my money. I don’t have a Guru, I feel lost many times. I don’t know what to do, I just want to end this pain. I live in a country where it is difficult to find a Guru. I read everything that Guru Thinley Nguyen Thanh writes, everything he writes is very beautiful. but I feel that if he were close to me, I would ask him many things.

    Tantra Amishuta,

    I rejoice in reading your heart-felt article entitled “Letter from America: HOW DID I THINK AFTER A HEART SURGERY.” I am very happy that you made it out of surgery alive and okay. I can totally relate when you say that sometimes you need reminded what to say or what to do. Sometimes it’s easy to slack off when things are going well or when your life seems so busy that you feel like you don’t even have time to think. may you have a blessed and peaceful day.

    May Guru live a long and healthy life for the sake of all sentient beings

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

    May the global pandemic caused by the corona virus soon end
