Letter from India: Transforming yourself is the first step for the transformation of the whole Universe. Self-transformation starts from transforming the mind. Armed with right view is the first step for transformaing the mind. The most easily and fastest way to gain right view is reading and commenting on chanhtuduy.com.( Thư Ấn Độ: THAY ĐỔI BẢN THÂN LÀ THAY ĐỔI ĐƯỢC THẾ GIỚI, THAY ĐỔI ĐƯỢC BẢN THÂN BẮT ĐẦU TỪ SỰ CHUYỂN HÓA TÂM. CHUYỂN HÓA TÂM BẮT ĐẦU TỪ TRANG BỊ CHÁNH KIẾN. TRANG BỊ CHÁNH KIẾN DỄ NHẤT, NHANH NHẤT LÀ ĐỌC VÀ COMMENT TRÊN CHANHTUDUY.COM)

One day ,when Buddha is giving his teachings in a village, an old saint approached him and said : ” when I was in prim of youth, I used to pray ”  O God ! give me the strength and energy to change the whole Universe ! “

When I crossed my younger age and stepped into the middle age, what I understood was I spent and wasted half of my life without changing a single living being. Then I modified my daily prayer like this : ” O God ! give me the strength and energy to change atleast those who are close to me, my family members, friends and relatives. Atleast I will be satisfied with that ! “

            Now, I am old and counting my last days. I have understood What a fool I am ! I could not change any body !

Now, my only daily prayer is ” O God ! give me the strength and energy to change myself ! If I had done and acted like this, I wouldn’t have wasted my life like this.!”

On hearing these words from that old saint, Buddha said, “Accepting and realising  your responsibility brings Change in you. Your this kind of transformation is the first step  of transformation of the whole Universe!-because , you are yourself is an Universe!.

It may be a small Universe. But you have all seeds embedded in it !. This type of revolution in you is the prelude for revolution of the whole Universe. Continued Buddha, ” If you want to change the universe, don’t attempt to transform the universe. That is the great mistake! Therefore all the revolution s fail!.Only one revolution may become successful- that is the Individual self revolution.!



( Recall here, our Guruji’s  new six innovations of Dharma practices guiding disciples to transform themselves to get wisdom and Enlightenment.)

Transforming yourself is the first step for the transformation of the whole Universe. Self-transformation starts from transforming the mind.

    Dear Tantra Nirvadeva,

    I’m delighted reading your sharing about the story from Buddha time and relating to our Guru teachings. Instead of desiring to do some big, unrealistic thing beyond our reach, it’s rational to start from transforming ourselves. I remind of the 26th of “The thirty-seven practices of all the Bodhisattvas” of Tokme Zangpo: “Without keeping precepts, one cannot attain any result, not to mention the wish to benefits beings, this would be ridiculous. Keeping precepts with no worldly expectation. That is the practice of all Bodhisattvas”. I suppose “keeping precepts” also means transforming ourselves. But how could we do that and what is the right way? I’m elated and agree with you that: “Transforming yourself is the first step for the transformation of the whole Universe. Self-transformation starts from transforming the mind. Armed with right view is the first step for transforming the mind. The easiest and fastest way to gain right view is reading and commenting on chanhtuduy.com.” It turns out that we have been transforming ourselves day by day since ages thanks to our Guru’s spiritual invention “Samyagdrsti-Prabha Samadhi”.

    I’m grateful for being a student of Guru. Thanks to Guru, I not only can transform myself but I also benefit to others.
    May all sentient beings could be beneficial by Pure mind Yoga.

    May Guru and your consort, Ms Mat Dieu good health and longevity for the sake of all sentient beings.
    May the Coronavirus epidemic will be eliminated soon.

    Om mani padme hum!

  4. Dear Tantra Nirvadeva,

    I am delighted to read your article.

    Obviously, lots of people are living with a big dream is altering the world while they do not notice that there is only one way to do it is transforming themselves. There are a few luckier people those did realize that matter. However, they also have to face with a question “what should they do” to transform their mind. And, as you mentioned above, the first step is gaining right view. Surely there is no way to achieve it as easy and fast as reading and commenting on chanhtuduy.com. I strongly agree with your view and basing on my personal experience, I could tell that I do feel the change in my mind and my life after a time of reading and commenting on chanhtuduy.com.

    It’s so fortunate for us to be Holy Guru’s students.

    Thank you for your sharing again.

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

    May Corona Virus epidemic will be eliminated soon.

  10. Jesse Sell says:

    Dear Tantra Niradeva

    I would like to thank you for the article. It was sent to me by someone trying to help me find a starting point. This was perfect. I’ve understood the concept for a while but never approached it using Buddha’s teachings.

    I am from the USA and peace in my life would help so many others around me. I tried by learning and practicing the Bible and I did progress somewhat with my mindset. I never found peace though. I feel this is the correct path after studying alternative methods.

    Have a blessed day and I look forward to reading more here!

    Yes we have a responssibility to change ourselves. When we change ourselves, the Universe responds. There is a forest in every seed.

    Greetings to the Holy Guru


    Change is constant and inevitable. Some found it hard to deal with, others think it’s harmful. But it is the only way to grow.


    There was once I read that says, “Your comfort zone could kill you”. That to me then is confusing. Until such time that I came to a point where I felt a great diversion of my flows in life. I used to be in a very comfortable ways wherein each time I need to have something, any members from my family could come and provide me for it. I lay down on my bed every night without thinking of what comes next for the following day. I was really in my confort zone.


    Until one day came out, when everything turn into questions. I walk and kneel down to a God I’ve been praying since I was born. Asking him to provide me back what I got used to. But nothing came out, questions still remain. Even got worse.


    As days moved on, months passed by. I got nothing but confusions. Career weakens, financial shakened. I felt like life is tragic. I got friends but I know they can do nothing for what I am going through. I locked down myself most of the time within the corner of my 5 by 7 meters room. I talked with the walls around me, the ceilings, the floor; yet none of them spoke back.


    Then there was one certain moment when I got to learn about Buddhism. This learning got deeper through the help of a wonderful friend, and introduced me to chantuduy.com. It was then when I realized the message of change; that nothing and no one can do the transformation of me rather than my self. As what the Buddha said in the article, ” don’t try to change the universe but rather change your way of thinking, coz the universe exist within you.” (So Hum). Through the amazing wisdom of the Holy Guru and great articles, I was able to cope up changes and be friended with it.


    My comfort zone before might not literally kill me physically, but can kill my state of learning what is all about living, what is all about existing, what is all about being in this realm. For changes never stops as long as we are willing to grow, willing to exist.


    My deepest gratitude to the Holy Guru for his great wisdom. My love and respect to a great friend, sister in distance, Mat Diue Hanh, for beying so kind always.

    Dear Guru,

    Thank you for sharing this article.


  15. Fiona says:

    This is nice article

    I do appreciate the teachings you do.

    Being kind and happy provides good energy around you.

    No negative energy survives around you then.

    Whilst meditation no negative energy can affect you too.


    I search within to give beautuful vibes.

    I search for answers to negative people and how to deal with them every day.


    However, when reading your teachings they encourage my mindset to be happy and give love.

    Love:= 1 Corinthians 13

    Con xin phép được dịch comment của bạn đọc Daniel sang tiếng Việt như sau:

    Đệ đồng ý với những chia sẻ của huynh. Chúng ta cs trách nhiệm thay đổi chính bản thân mình. Khi chúng ta thay đổi, vũ trụ sẽ thay đổi. Tương tự như khu rừng được hình thành từ những hạt giống.

    Dear guru

    This story is the change of mind and peace of mind  to all universe

  20. Sonam Tshering says:

    Dear Holy Guru,

    Though the article is short, the meaning it has is really deep. I remember a lesson from one of the religious texts saying it is better to tame one’s mind than attempting to tame numerous enemies.

    I will always be grateful for such and many other life changing lessons from Guru. Most importantly I am really grateful to Guru for bestowing me with the Dharma name, Tantra Unipa. I feel so fortunate to have it. Please accept my gratitude for this.

    Dear Guru,


    This article is full of enlightenment.

  26. Jason Cook says:

    To eat and recycle, to make new from old Dear Guru, I have taken these thoughts today. I feel the old statement, one must help themselves before they are able to help anyone else is somewhat relevant to this article. If you are in the well of life, good standing, you stay afloat, able to help as you see plausible. I enjoyed this article, thank you.

  27. Tantra Pramitdhita (Josh Hacker) says:

    Holy Guru, thank you for sharing this article from our Dharma brother Tantra Nirvadeva. By transforming yourself first, more is possible. An old saying comes to mind. “You can’t love someone until you first love yourself.” Trasforming yourself first works in the same manner.  Those who know you will see the difference within you and will want to know how you did such a thing and how they can as well. Those who do not know you will sense something unexplainable to them. When you have positive cause you will than have a positive effect. When we are in harmony with the universe, everything else starts to fall into place.

    Om Mani Padme Hum

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

    May all sentient beings find freedom from suffering

    May the tragic epidemic caused by the Corona virus soon end

  31. Henrique says:

    Hello Guru, I am reading this text again, I was able to contemplate it better now, this text reminded me of the words of Gandhi that says to be the change we want to see in the world, so many people engage in politics but in an aggressive way, thus contradicting its true objective, which is to make beings happy, they are very concerned with changing the world but do not change themselves. I thank Guru and my international friend (since I am from Brazil) Violet Tran, who after a long time I got back in touch, she shows me how strong the bonds of sangha are by presenting me this chantduy site … om mani padme hum

  37. Koi Kpehonou Alphonse says:

    Dear Holly Guru, thank you very much for all.
    After reading this lesson,  i understand that No transformation come to elswhere, it comes from ourself. Only our behaviours, speaking can show people next o near us our change and from these, our relatives can statrt coping us. There is no exact time to start. We must start it at the moment it’s understood. Reading and commenting lessons is the only way to transform ourself, sentient beings or universe.
