Letter from New Zealand: SOME HEART WORDS OF MAT HAI (Thư New Zealand: ĐÔI DÒNG TÂM HUYẾT CỦA ĐẠO HUYNH MẬT HẢI)

Dear Guru,

Thank you for conferring us these precious teachings. Like the light, though small, at the end of the tunnel, I want to shout it out loud from my heart to wake up the devotion to Guru and Dharma in me and vajra brothers. Thanks to the light from Guru, we, standing in the darkness of tunnel, will realize that some of us are embracing “wish-fulfilling jewel” in right hand but holding “a pellet of goat’s dung” in left hand. They’ve blindly seen they are one, look alike but different in nature (!).

Lights at the end of tunnel

Now my eyes are open! Performing meritorious actions (serving dharma affairs, guiding others into Buddhist path, contributing wisdom, effort and money to Guru’s cause of dharma dissemination…) in order merely to attain fame and praise is like “bartering the mystic wish granting gem for a pellet of goat’s dung”, as warned by Master Gampopa.

Master Gampopa

By this grievous failure, we are wearing the coat of wrong view:

  1. Wrong view of standpoint: Wrongly thinking that “I deserve credit for doing something for Guru”. This runs against the teaching of Buddhist saints: “Whatever you do to serve (your Guru) or show him respect, should never be done with arrogant mind. Better be like a newly-wed bride, timid, bashful and totally subdued” (Teachings of Master Asvaghosa and holy saints).

    Teachings of Master Asvaghosa and holy saints

  2. Wrong view of respect: Thinking “I deserve credit”, thus “arbitrarily act without knowing who I am and in what position”. This indicates the disrespect of Guru and the Three Jewels as well as the violation of Bodhisattva’s vow “Do not respect the senior”.
  3. Wrong view of worship: Turning myself into a person of “thoughtless, lack of self-respect, good-for-nothing…” means I am silently worshipping my big “Ego” rather than Guru and the Three Jewels (!)
  4. Wrong view of liberation:

– Knowing that when sowing the seed of “GURU DEVOTION” will bring the fruit of “FOUNDATION OF ENLIGHTENMENT”, why don’t I learn to take care that seed but leave it dry out instead?

– Knowing about my afflictions and other’s sufferings in this burning Saha world; knowing the cause of suffering (greed, hatred, delusion, arrogance, jealousy); knowing and understanding the way of ceasing suffering that Guru (who represents the Trinity) teaches us (six “Thanh Tri mind dharmas” in concordance with Six-syllable mantra of the Avalokiteshvara; with six paramitas of Bodhisattvas; with the oceans of transcendent power and vows of Buddhas and saints in ten directions…), still don’t joyfully “follow and practice” but act against the teachings of Guru and Padmasambhava, isn’t I so stupid?

Padmasambhava

Dear Guru,

I sincerely repent of each and every wrong thought, words and behavior derived from my defiled body, speech and mind. O’ Guru, with your benevolence, please let me purify these karmas. May my dharma brothers who are in the same darkness like me timely wake up and escape from the tunnel, towards the light where Guru and Yidam are waiting day and night.

Towards the light where Guru and Yidam are waiting day and night

O’ Guru Rinpoche, please turn my mind towards the Dharma

O’ Perfect Enlightened Ones, don’t let me stray onto wrong or inferior path

O’ Compassionate Guru, WHO IS THE ONE OF THESE MASTERS, please take care of me!

O’ Compassionate Guru, WHO IS THE ONE OF THESE MASTERS, please take care of me!

May Guru and your consort have health and live long to save those who deserve to be saved.

May COVID-19 pandemic soon be eliminated.

Om Mani Padme Hum.

    Dear Guru
    I have read the article “A few heart words of Mat Hai”.
    Thank you for writing the article.
    I pray for longevity for Guru and Ms. Mat Dieu for the sake of sentient beings.
    I pray that sentient beings can drink the nectar essence.
    Pray for the Corona pandemic to be soon eradicated.

    Dear Dharma brother Mat Hai,

    I would like to give you my thanks for sharing such a nice article that helps me to look back at myself, reflect and correct my own mistakes. 

    Because of my own ego (“me, I, myself”) , I let myself fall into the failure of wrong view. By looking at the wrong view in 4 categories as you mentioned in this article, I now understand more of my own mistakes and how they could make me take wrong steps to the darkness of the tunnel. Thanks to the light from Guru’s instruction and compassion, I could realize my own wrong-doing in body, speech and mind. This is a big lesson for myself that I need to clearly remember and act accordingly to nurture humility as the teaching of Master Asvaghosa: “Whatever you do to serve (your Guru) or show him respect, should never be done with an arrogant mind. Better be like a newly-wed bride, timid, bashful and totally subdued”.

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

    May Dharma brother Mat Hai have good health and get more happiness in Dharma life.

    May the epidemic of Covid-19 come to end soon.

    May all sentient beings be free from suffering and get enlightened.

    Om Mani Padme Hum!

Actually you deserve all kinds of appreciation and respect. You always support us and try as much as you can to put us on the right path. And also you always share with us your happiness and only your happiness with us and you keep your sadness and your problems for you. I devote myself to your louts feet. Thank you so much again !

    May you have good health and live long for the benefit of all sentient beings.

    Dear Guru,

    I have read the sharing of vajra brother Mat Hai. I have thought over what he wrote about the wrong view on Guru devotion.  It is the wake – up alarm for us to avoid consequences.  Every action covered by “me, I,  myself” leads to the grievous failures. If following Guru’s words is only due to ego without gratitude, practitioners will fall into the trap of the circle of “me,  I,  myself ” which brings them unhappiness and to wander forever in samsara.  Without Guru, nothing good happens. Guru represents Buddha,  Dharma and Sangha. Guru is so compassionate and patient to convert learners and disciples. I should keep in mind the gratitude towards Guru and consider any chances to follow your words or guidance as my lucky opportunity to accumulate merits and develop wisdom. If Guru does not give me any chances, how can I get successful thanks to his concern and encouragement?  Never!  Looking back the miserable days in darkness of ignorance with fear,  no ways out in the past,  I feel so fortunate to get your guidance to get out of the darkness of suffering. I feel so grateful to become your disciple.

    Thank you so much for teaching me and guiding me patiently.

    May you and your consort have good health and live long for the sake of all sentient beings.

    Thank vajra brother Mat Hai for sharing the article which reminds me of having Guru devotion in the orbit of dharma.

    May vajra brother Mat Hai get the righteous wishes on the path of liberation.

    May all sentient beings awake in the state of enlightenment.

    May the covid 19 pandemic be soon over.

    Om Mani Padme Hum.

  5. Mật Khải Nguyên says:

    Dear holy Guru,

    I have read this article shared by vajra brother Mat Hai. This article is like a wake-up call that urges me to look back at my own self.

    Indeed, I, as a disciple, always said to myself that “Devotion to Guru is the root of enlightenment”, yet little did I know that what I truly devoted to is myself. The behaviors listed out by brother Mat Hai put me in shame because I see myself in them. I covered the vulgarity of my mind with the holiness of Dharma devotion. It is exactly like exchanging a precious gem for a pile of goat dung. Guru was the light at the end of the tunnel that guided me out of the darkness of my 25-crisis. Committing these behaviors, and keeping this stubborn mind is no different than digging a way back to that tunnel. What I need to do now is to reflect and navigate myself to the true path of true devotion to Guru. Only by that, I can escape suffering and continue on the way to true happiness.

    My gratitude to Guru for pointing out my mistake and guiding me with such patience.

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

    May all sentient beings be awake in the state of enlightenment.

    May the Covid-19 pandemic soon be over.

  9. Mật Hòa says:

    Dear vajra brother Mat Hai,
    Your sharing helps me to look back myself and to face with my stubbornness and ignorance. Through your sharing, I realize though I am equipped right view, but I act like a person who wears “the coat of wrong view”. I am self-illustrated that “I deserve credit for doing something for Guru”, then “acting without knowing who I am and in what position”, “turning myself into a person of thoughtless, lack of self-respect, good-for-nothing…”, “acting against teachings of Guru and Padmasambhava”.
    At this time, I also wish I could shout loudly enough to wake “my devotion to Guru and Dharma” up, to avoid falling into the failure as Master Gampopa has warned: “Perform meritorious actions in order merely to attain fame and praise is like “batering the mystic wish granting gem for a pellet of goat’s dung”.
    I am grateful for your sharing.
    May Guru have good health and live long for the sake of all sentient beings.
    May brothers Mat Hai and Mat Thuy achieve all justifiable wishes.
    May Covid-19 pandemic soon be over.
    Om mani padme hum!

  10. Mật Khả Phúc says:

    Dear Guru,
    I have read the sharing of vajra brother Mat Hai. This article is a wake-up call to help me review, consider myself and adjust, correct body, speech, and mind behaviors to the right path as Dharma’s orbit. The 4 listed wrong views of standpoint, respect, worship and liberation helps me understand the grievous failure around the circle “me, I, myself” would pull me down in the miserable darkness of the tunnel. Guru has brought radiant light into my life. Words can’t express my boundless gratitude for you. I appreciate what you have done for me, for beings. It is a special privilege for me to be your disciple, to follow your guidance, your wisdom.  I understand that if I want to be able to see the liberation’s light in order to get out of tunnel, I have to nurture devotion to Guru, follow and practice Guru’s teachings and treasure Dharma. Thank you Mat Hai for this article.

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

    May Covid-19 will end soon.

    May all sentient beings attain the happiness of Buddha’s nature.

  12. Mật Giác Đăng says:

    Dear Guru,

    I have read this sharing from vajra brother Mat Hai.

    These heart words he wrote are truly the wake-up call for me to self examine and eliminate mistakes; they are the warning alert for me to be careful of wrong thoughts – thoughts of “my, I, myself” leading to wrong view in nurturing devotion towards Guru. Without Guru, there will be not the new me as position of a true Buddhist, a Thanh Tri practitioner day by day joyfully accumulate merit and wisdom under Guru’s guidance aiming to the enlightened goal. I will be still the miserable old me drown in sufferings, lost in ignorance! It is so far more than enough for me to keep in mind the gratitude to Holy Guru.

    I am thankful to vajra brother Mat Hai for the meaningful words. I will read again and again four aspects of wrong view mentioned in the article, to eliminate and keep myself far away from them. I pray for me and other vajra brothers will always nurture the devotion towards Guru in accordance to the right orbit of Dharma, to not betray the Guru’s compassion, to not waste the precious chance we have in this life.

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

    May vajra brother Mat Hai achieve all legitimate wishes.

    May the covid-19 pandemic will be soon eliminated.

    May all sentient beings awake at the state of enlightenment.

    Dear Holy Guru

    I have read the article:  Some heard words of Mat Hai. Thank vajra brother Tantra Hai help me realize wrong points of view. Guru’s teachings are like the light at the end of the tunnel which guilds us to the path of enlightenment. But evil nature sometimes exists in our mind leading to darkness in our mind eyes and causing us with wrong doing and wrong thoughts. They influent wrongly devolution to Guru in our hearts and our mind. Thank vajra brother so much for your article.

    May  holy Guru and your consort good health, long life for benefits of all human beings.

    Dear Guru,

    I have read this article that sharing from vajra brother Mat Hai. This article reminds me 4 point of wrong view : wrong view of standpoint, wrong view of respect, wrong view of worship, wrong view of liberations. Even I know that the guru devotion “Guru devotion builds your enlightenment foundation/ All the Sutra and Tantra confirmed/ You will accumulate immeasurable merit/ Be suitable to hold the pure Dharma…” ( 50 verses of Guru Devotion) but I still has kind of stupid action, thoughtless, lack of self- respect with big ego, and with ignorance, I continue to go the circle of samara. So in order to escape the darkness of tunnel, I have to nurture devotion toward Guru , follow Guru’s step and practice Guru teaching.

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

    Thanks vajra brother Mat Hai for your sharing. May you achive all legitimate wishes.

    May all sentient being awake at the state of enlightenment

    May the covid 19 pandemic will be soon eliminated.

  18. Dr C H Lakshmi narayan says:

    I bow my head at the lotus feet of Guruji.

    Dear dharma sister,

    You have mentioned in your comment that all things covered by ” me, I, myself ” lead to

    grevious failures. With due respect, I say  it is not so ! . ” me ,I , myself”  in other words called ,  ‘ ego’  or ‘ self-respect ‘  is absolutely necessary  for the existance of a man  without which there is no self identification.

    For example, when a meeting is going with Guruji, along with other disciples if a stranger comes there and asks’ Who is Mat Fish Hang here? ‘ to deliver an emergency . Message, you  have nothing but to identify yourself by saying ‘ Myself’!. So this ‘ ego’

    Should be present in any body  except for it’s exemplication to the extent of boasting or flattering oneself !

    Unfortunately, this ego of  self-identity has crossed the dharma border and become a ‘habit’ of   boasting and flattery !!.It is the nature of ‘ habit’ which is very difficult get rid off ! If you remove ‘h’ from the word ‘ habit’,  ‘a bit ‘  remains.  If you remove ‘ a’  from  ‘ a bit ‘  even then ‘ bit’ remains. If you remove ‘ b’ from ‘ bit ‘,  still ‘ it’ remains !. Though, this  appears a numerous joke, it is very very difficult to leave this  habit of getting rid of this ‘Egoism’ even among  great people!. This is my view , may not be accepted by one and all. Truth is a truth  which can not be altered at any time by any body.!

  19. Mật Từ says:

    Dear Holy Guru,

    I have read the sharing of vajra brother Mat Hai. Through his heartfelt sharing, I understand that whatever we do towards Guru and Dharma with the representation of “me, myself and I” will all lead us to the grievous failure. Instead of being given the precious chance to sow the seed of Guru Devotion, we sowed the seed of greed, selfishness and disrespectfulness towards Guru. In that case, the awful consequence is definitely waiting. Even a small seed can grow into fruitful plant someday, not to mention we have been granted the base of right views and the methods to practice Dharma from Guru. Without Guru, there has been nothing that can be achieved. Any teaching from Guru is a precious chance for us as if we see the light in the end of the tunnel. I sincerely repent of each and every wrong thought, words and action derived from my defiled body, speech and mind. I will keep in mind the learnt lesson and reflect on my body, mind and speech behaviors.

    May Guru have a good health and longevity for the benefits of all sentient beings.

    Thank vajra brother Mat Hai for the meaningful sharing.

    May all sentient beings attain the Buddha nature’s happiness.

This sharing helps me look back at my behaviors in body, speech, and mind as well as get the opportunity to wake up and escape from the tunnel, towards the light, toward Guru and Yidam, with my devotion.

    Dear Guru,

    I have read this article shared by vajra brother Mat Hai.

    As I have learnt in your teachings, I understand that armed with rightview is the first step of transforming our mind, from ignorance to wisdom, from selfish to selfless. However, we also all know that without right view on reverence, especially devotion towards Guru, we could never attain the ultimate rightview which means the comprehensive state. Besides, through this article, vajra brother Mat Hai has explained clearly for us how does our wrong attitude and motivation (attachment on “me, I, myself”) affect on our spiritual destiny, even when we are performing meritorious actions. We, therefore, need to be cautious in each and every actions of body, speech and mind for not receiving grievous consequences, instead of best results.

    Thank vajra brother Mat Hai for this timely wake-up call. This is such an opportunity for me to look back at myself.

    May you have good health and soon achieve righteous wishes.

    May Guru and your consort live long for the sake of all sentient beings.

    Dear Mat Hai

    I’ve read this article and found myself in it. Sometimes I feel like a person standing in the darkness of the tunnel of ignorance seeing the light of Guru and Yidam at the end of the tunnel but still reluctant to move forward. This stagnancy is being pulled back by three poisons and eight worldly winds, just like the right hand with the wish-fulfilling gem pointing me towards the light of Guru and Yidam, but the left hand with a pillet of goat’s dung pulling me back to the darkness of the tunnel. Sometimes, it’s our inherent bad habits and attitudes that provide the ground for the action of this left hand as well as foster what is called as “egoism” which is the cause for the rebirth in samsara. We don’t realize that the wish fulfilling gem (Guru) is the only one that can lead us to the ultimate liberation. Without it (him), we can do nothing. Your sharing is a timely wake-up bell to the imminence of our failure on the path of cultivation if we continue to go against the teachings of Guru and Yidam and don’t readjust our actions of body, speech and mind in alignment with the right orbit of Dharma. Thank you for helping us understand more about the importance of Guru devotion on the path of cultivation. Thank you  for this beneficial article.

    Dear holy Guru!

    I have read vaija brother Mat Hai’s sharing. In this article, Dharma brother Mat Hai emphasized how important the right view of “Guru devotion” is for all of us while practising Dharma. Thank Guru for sharing and giving us a priceless lesson, and a wake-up call to look back myself, to face with my ignorance and to correct actions of “body, speech, mind” to the Dharma orbit. Through this heartfelt sharing, I realized, the 4-listed “wrong views” – the views of “my, I, myself” will pull me down in the darkness of Samsara. I understand that without Guru devotion, I can’t see the light in the end of darkness tunnel and lights of liberation. I will keep in mind Guru’s teachings, try to keep awaking, mindfulness, focus and diligence in rehearing and practising Thanh Tri mind dharma under Guru’s guidance.

    May Guru and your consort have a good health and longevity for spreading the light of Yoga Thanh Tri, for the benefits of all sentient being.

    Dear Holy Guru,

    I am happy to read this article that is shared by vajra brother Mat Hai. I really appreciate his sharing that helps me to look back at myself, correct my own mistakes, to avoid four wrongs: 1/ Wrong view of standpoint 2/ Wrong view of respect  3/ Wrong view of worship  4/ Wrong view of liberation.

    I always impress “Guru devotion is the root of the path to enlightenment” on  my memory and I remember Guru’s teachings “All the suffering of samsara comes from the mind. Happiness, liberation and enlightenment come from the mind. Suffering comes from the unsubdued mind. Liberation and enlightenment come from the subdued mind, therefore, changing the mind is the most important”.

    May Mat Hai have a good health and make progress on the path to enlightenment.

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

    Dear Holy Guru,

    I have read the sharing of vajra brother Mat Hai.
    The sharing of vajra brother Mat Hai helps me to understand that : Do not “bartering the mystic wish granting gem for a pellet of goat’s dung” , And “ Guru devotion is the foundation of enlightenment”.
    Thank you so much vajra brother Mat Hai for sharing the article.

    May vajra brother Mat Hai – Mat Thuy get the righteous wishes on the path of liberation.

    May all sentient beings awake in the state of enlightenment.
