Letter from New Zealand: ALL PROSPERITIES COME FROM DHARMA PRACTICE ( Thư New Zealand: “ĐỨC ÍT MÀ ĐƯỢC ƠN SỦNG NHIỀU”, VÌ SAO?)

Letter from New Zealand: ALL PROSPERITIES COME FROM DHARMA PRACTICE ( Thư New Zealand: “ĐỨC ÍT MÀ ĐƯỢC ƠN SỦNG NHIỀU”, VÌ SAO?)

Waking up this morning, I found it strange to see my handphone show the time of 7:00 am while the clock on the wall read 6:00 am. Ah yes, today is the time for daylight saving in New Zealand as all clocks go forward one hour. Finally, cold winter days have been gone and I can enjoy extra hours of sunshine.

Time flies too fast! We have been staying in New Zealand for nine months! My study course has come to final stage with just one more credit and three-month apprenticeship left. Thanks to the blessings of Guru and Yidam, I could smoothly complete all credits and exams. Step by step, I’ve “miraculously” overcome this heavy study program (15 subjects within 9 months) .

Auckland Institute of Studies where I am studying

“so excited to begin as an apprentice at a big finance company in Auckland, New Zealand”

Rainbow over the building where I had interview

While I am so excited (nervous also) to begin as an apprentice at a big finance company in Auckland, my classmates have chosen to enroll in five more credits after failing to apply for apprenticeship, given the fact that finance companies in New Zealand rarely accept apprentice. It’s so amazing that a fresh international student who comes from a not so reputed college, neither fluent in English nor getting excellent study results like me has unbelievably got invitation for 3-month apprenticeship at a finance company. Such wonders make me stunned which are only explained by the principle of causality and the blessings of Guru and Yidam. Last two times coming to the company for interview, I ran into the rainbow on my way. Previously, Guru asserted: “It will be fine! You will find a proper place for apprenticeship”. His teaching encouraged me much, knowing that intelligence, beauty or talent cannot be compared to merits gained from Dharma practice for the ultimate end [liberation]. Thanks to merit, Thanh Tri practitioner can surpass all hurdles and overcome all difficulties that seem unsolvable. So how to practice Dharma? The easiest way is to follow Guru’s teachings by reading and writing comment on chanhtuduy.com to link oneself with pure energy from Guru, Buddha, Dharma and Sangha.

“It will be fine! You will find a proper place for apprenticeship”

Words cannot describe my gratefulness towards the Yidam’s blessings through transmission channel of Guru. Coming back to first days on this new land, it took me nearly 45 minutes to go the college by bus [we lived in the city]. In the first four months, we were burdened by house rent and living expenses for not being able to find a job. “Long-term loans” from Guru, his consort and vajra brothers gradually ran out. We prayed Guru and Yidam to help us soon find a job to stabilize our life but again, another question raised on what type of job would be and by which means we could travel to the working place. Initially, we planned to stay in the city to look for a job, change the accommodation and buy a car after six months of hard working. Things seemed beyond our reach but there happened a miracle! Through the transmisison channel of Guru, the Yidam “filled in the puzzle” for us as we got a good deal on a nice car (around NZD3,000). From then on, my husband, Mat Hai, could get a job in the city’s suburb without concerning about means of transport. We began to think about changing our current house to a place near my college to reduce monthly rental and travel costs. So just four months since our first steps in New Zealand, we have achieved all righteous wishes, though their order may reverse. Surprisingly, I could find a part time job just 1km far from my place which does not affect my study timetable.

Reading and writing comment on chanhtuduy.com to link oneself with pure energy from Guru, Buddha, Dharma and Sangha

Nice car with reasonable price (around NZD3,000)

Each time driving the car, we remember about Guru and his consort. Without his encouraging us to learn driving and “fearlessly” letting us train by his car, how could we buy and drive car in this new land? Moreover, the car has helped us overcome the first cold, wet winter. Such a blessed winter! I won’t forget the time we were moving to the new house near my college when a rain suddenly poured out heavily just after we got all things into the car. Then the rain stopped right when we arrived at the new house. All our tiredness dissipated as we know we are always under the blessed attention of Guru and Yidam. I smiled and told myself that I should practice Dharma patiently, let the rest be done by Guru and Yidam!

Mat Hai with new job as a Barista

Admiring the first rays of spring sunlight cascaded down onto newly blossomed flowers, I realized those leafless trees with grey-brown bark in the last winter were peach blossom trees. They’ve striven for survival on those frost-chilled days, waiting to show the beauty and freshness of peach blossoms in the warm spring sunlight which often last no more than two weeks a year. But we, the disciples of Thanh Tri Yoga, are able to warm up in direct sunlight of Dharma all year round through chanhtuduy.com, putting forth colorful flowers with Dharma fragrance.

I smiled and told myself that I should practice Dharma patiently, let the rest be done by Guru and Yidam!

 

 

Guru, Buddha, Dharma and Sangha shall always be a safe shelter for us from the fierce storm of worldly concerns outside. I silently prayed for the fragrance of Thanh Tri Yoga to spread all over directions to help sentient beings find out a true refuge in the life where sufferings are seemingly interminable while joy soon fades and dies like those peach blossoms.

My sincerest gratitude toward Guru for bestowing blessings upon our journey in this far away land. We may stay far from you geographically but we still feel close to you thanks to a wonderful means – the Vimalakirti’s room that is created with your heart and mind. I blissfully appreciate your merits and virtues. May you have health and live long for the benefits of all sentient beings!

Om Mani Padme Hum!

    Dear vajra brother Mat Thuy,

    I am happy to read about your success in your study and life.

    I have learnt that only by reading and comment with Guru devotion,  practitioners are easy to get successful and spiritual achievement this life. The important thing is to follow the Guru who have wisdom of enlightenment and bodhichitta for the benefits of all beings, our righteous  wishes become true soon. Under the shelter from the lights of wisdom and bodhichitta of Guru,  we are safe and peaceful to enjoy the life and achieve the spiritual success.

    We should practice his six methods of dharma practice patiently,  diligently with the firm faith and belief, we get inner peace of mind, get successful in life and make social achievement. Your story with many cases in Song Nguyen Tantra House have proven this. All the worldly success and spiritual achievement are from the merit and blessings from Guru.

    Thank you so much for your sharing.

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

    May Mat Hoang Phuc be reborn in the high realms.

    May Mat Thuy and Mat Hai get all the righteous wishes.

    May all sentient beings be surrounded by the blessings of Guru,  Buddha,  Dharma and Sangha.

    Om Mani Padme Hum.

    Dear Guru thanks for sharing this article.

    Also thanks to Mat Thuy for sharing your wonderful experience in New Zealand. Once again you have proven only Guru’s blessings are the best place to take refugee. Even though we may be good-looking, well versed in speaking English, we may be attractive, but all these qualities fails sometimes. There comes the blessings from Yidam through transmission channel of Guru teachings and blessings. Mat Thuy and May Hai congrats to both of you for your new car and good place for work.

    May all your good wishes may come true.

    May Guru live long for sake of other beings.

    May all beings be free from suffering and get enlightened.

    Om Mani Padme Hum!!!

    Con cảm tạ ơn Thầy đã cho con đọc bài viết.

    Đệ cảm ơn đạo huynh Mật Thủy đã chia sẻ những trải nghiệm tuyệt vời ở New Zealand. Một lần nữa,  huynh đã chứng minh rằng ơn phước từ vị Thầy là nơi nương tựa tốt nhất,  Thầy là đối tượng quy y tốt nhất. Mặc dù chúng ta có ngoại hình đẹp,  trông hấp dẫn, giỏi tiếng Anh, thì những yếu tố đo không giúp chúng ta thành công. Chỉ có ơn phước từ Bổn tôn thông qua kênh vận chuyển của vị Thầy mới tạo nên những điều kỳ diệu. Đệ chúc mừng hai đạo huynh Mật Hải,  Mật Thủy có xe ô tô mới và có công việc tốt.

    Cầu nguyện hai đạo huynh viên thành mọi ước nguyện chính đáng.

    Con cầu nguyện Thầy trụ thế lâu dài vì sự lợi lạc của tất cả chúng sanh.

    Cầu nguyện tất cả chúng sanh đoạn trừ khổ đau và đạt được giác ngộ.

    Dear Holy Guru,

    Greetings from Canada and thank you for this wonderful article by Disciple Mat Thuy!

    I have been away, for an extended period of time, due to illness and I’m happy to be back, reading articles and offering my commentary.

    May blessings and light continue to shine, on our esteemed Guru and consort and to all the disciples and students at Song Nguyen Tantra House!

    I offer my sincere blessings and success to Disciple Mat Thuy and his apprenticeship.

    Living according to dharma creates a foundation for a prosperous life. Dharma is that inherent support for us to live in the highest way and to be all that we can be.

    When you live according to dharma you think bigger and support the well-being of all! The law of dharma is based on the realization of oneness, that there is one life, one power, one presence that is in us. We don’t live without regard to others.

    All sentient beings have Buddha Nature, deep within their core being. Seek to live in harmony with that Ultimate Truth, of your being. And then prosperity comes! The call to prosper is a dharmic drive, in us and we should all pursue and succeed in this drive, with a sense of joy and happiness and purpose and peace!

    A special thanks goes out to my dear Dharma friend, Mat Dieu Hang for encouraging and inspiring me to return to reading articles and offering my thoughts and commentary.

    May the Happiness of Buddha Nature and Ultimate Enlightenment, await all sentient beings and a long life, to all! Om Mani Padme Hum ☺️

    Sincere regards,

    TantraCitta (Jeffrey Bernard Forest)

    Dear Guru,

    My name is Tantra Sagovana.

    Thank you for sharing this article.

    I am happy to read about Mat Thuy and Mat Hai’s academic, career and life achievements and overcoming their obstacles through practicing the Dharma and receiving blessings of Guru, while being connected to Guru and Three Jewels through Vimalakirti room of chanhtuduy.com.

    I am also happy for them that they are living in beautiful city of Auckland, New Zealand where I myself spent part of my childhood.

    May all sentient beings be healthy and well and be free from suffering.

    May Guru be healthy and live long for the benefit of all beings.

    Dear guru,

    I bow my head on your lotus feet. I am very thankful for this article.

    I am very happy to read this article. I used to read article after long time. But the blessings of guru was always with me. Actually I am busy in study preparation for medical college entry test. It is my last chance to attempt. So that my mind only focuses on study. My mind only want shortcuts. In between that time when I not use to read article I see viedoes of rinpoche, their quotes. It also give me very peace in mind. Once kalu rinpoche said “donts treat dharma as a job, we should stop analyse”. I always use to try to stay close to dharma. It gives me peace ,living in present moment.  But the real truth is this my desire is too big. Mind always want to grasp selfishness. This selfishness may have different forms but he always wants to stay here. We all need guru blessings to be free from our desire I me myself. And sorry for my poor English.

    May guru teachings illuminate all over the world for peace and happiness. May guru lives long for all sensient being.

    Om mani padme hum.
