Letter from Germany: A few thoughts about true blessings

Letter from Germany: A few thoughts about true blessings

Dear holy Guru

The True Guru you are! I read your article with pleasure and thank you for having translated this article so that many people around the world can take part in your wise words.

For me, every prayer is individual. It comes from my deepest heart and is part of wishes thoughts experiences and hopes. A parrot could reproduce these words but it would be words without nutritional value. Words and prayers that do not come from his heart and thoughts. They were empty words and empty prayers. We humans experience and seek out our thoughts whether consciously or unconsciously. With good thoughts, we determine our positive action. It will not always be crowned by success but it teaches us.

There is a very nice quote that reads as follows:
“Sow a thought, and you reap an act;
Sow an act, and you reap a habit;
Sow a habit, and you reap a character;
Sow a character, and you reap a destiny.”
(Samuel Smiles, Happy Homes and the Hearts That Make Them)

Berlin, Germany

After this quote, I choose my thoughts. I recite and I sing. I let positive elements flow into me. I am the ruler of my thoughts and my prayers. With your help, the worthy Guru, I learn to complete and influence on my thoughts and my dealings with other people. There are different forms of gratitude to show all this is individual as we are. I am an always smiling person because I have found out for myself that this opens doors and valuable conversations take place. In addition, my prayers for other people are the following: May all people are free from suffering with many positive thoughts.

Dear holy Guru,
This world needs people like you dear Guru with the wonderful people around you who teach us and connect us. There was until a few months ago for me never a religion since I grew up in another system. I could not really be deeply religious. Then I became acquainted with Buddhism and I have read your articles on chanhtudy.com. I found out that Buddhism is the only religion and philosophy with which I identify myself. No faith and no thought in me has ever been so strong I always had compassion and a good heart. My grandmother always showed me through their kindness how precious every single life is, but there were only worldly things. I found in Buddhism all that of biddhicitta and precious human beings no scientific study could have taught me and I am deeply grateful for your articles. It fills my heart with joy and my thoughts with positive energies.

I will never lose hope that through people like you who will teach us and bring us closer to enlightenment, the world becomes more honest without the pursuit of luxury. Because the real luxury is the simplicity of true mind and compassion towards all beings. I will bring your wise words to other people. Nevertheless, I will not be a parrot.

May all beings be free from suffering and follow the Buddhist path.
May you be a blessed Guru with health.

  1. Kính bạch Thầy!

    Con đã đọc bài này của đạo hữu Tantra Mikaya (Jane) thông qua bản dịch của đạo hữu Mật Diệu Hằng.

    Con hoan hỷ với những cảm niệm chân thành, sâu lắng đong đầy tấm lòng biết ơn Đạo sư của đạo hữu ấy. Con hoan hỷ với những thay đổi, chuyển biến tích cực trong tâm thức của đạo hữu khi nhờ đọc hiểu những bài viết trí huệ của vị Thầy trên Chanhtuduy.com.  Qua đây con cũng tán thán công đức với nhiều nổ lực dịch bài viết của Thầy sang Anh ngữ/ngoại ngữ mà đạo hữu Mật Diệu Hằng cùng các huynh đệ kim cang đang miệt mài góp sức cho công cuộc giáo hóa chúng sanh của Đạo sư.

    Như lời của đạo hữu Tantra Mikaya nói, “thế giới nầy rất cần sự hiện diện của Thầy”, bởi vì nhờ Thầy chúng sanh chúng con sẽ được thực hành giáo pháp đúng với phương pháp đúng, để được chuyển hóa tâm theo chiều hướng tích cực hơn, tốt đẹp hơn và đặc biệt chúng con sẽ được đến gần với giác ngộ hơn.

    Thế nên, từ tận đáy lòng mình, chúng con thành tâm cầu nguyện vị Thầy cùng vị phối ngẫu tâm linh của ngài trụ thế dài lâu và tiếp tục quay bánh xe pháp, để ánh sáng trí tuệ và hương đạo Bồ đề từ vị Thầy, từ Mật gia Song Nguyễn tiếp tục được lan tỏa khắp muôn phương vì lợi lạc, hạnh phúc của tất cả chúng sanh.

    Chúng con kính lễ tri ân Thầy, Cô!

    Om Mani Padme Hum.

  2. Dear Tantra Mikaya,

    I am happy to read your sharing. It is very meaningful.

    By reading the Guru’s article and your effort in contemplating his teaching, you share with us an interesting thought about true blessings.

    I agree with you that “This world need people like you, dear Guru who teaches us and connects us”. And after connecting with the Guru through his articles, you found in Buddhism all that of Bodhicitta and precious human beings no scientific could have taught you. Then you apply the Guru’s teaching in your life, you change your thought with positive attitude and prayer for all beings, so that you get joy and happiness.

    Besides, reading articles and writing  comments on chanhtuduy.com also helps us get the positive energy from the big source of “clear light”, change our poisonous mind into pure mind.

    I am looking forward to reading more of your writing.

    May our Guru and his consort live long for the benefit of all sentient beings.

    May Tantra Mikaya achieve legitimate wishes and get true happiness that arises on the path of enlightenment.

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

    Om Mani Padme Hum.

    • Kính bạch Thầy!

      Con xin phép được dịch comment của đạo hữu Tantra Mikaya (Jane) sang tiếng Việt như sau ạ:

      “Kính bạch vị Thầy tâm linh tôn quý,

      Nhân dịp ngày đặc biệt này, ngày Đạo sư Mật giáo, con cảm tạ ơn Thầy vì Thầy đã viết bài và ban cho con những lời dạy đầy trí tuệ uyên thâm của Thầy.  Con cầu nguyện cho sức khỏe và sự trường thọ của Thầy.

      Con cảm tạ ơn Thầy vì sự quảng độ của Thầy cũng như việc Thầy dành thời gian quý báu của Thầy ban cho chúng con những bài pháp quý. Những bài biết của Thầy truyền cảm hứng cho con và giúp con mở rộng tầm mắt và tiếp thu được kiến thức Thầy dạy.

      Từ thành phố Berlin, con chân thành gửi đến Thầy lời thỉnh an. Con cầu nguyện Thầy trụ thế lâu dài. 

      Con cầu nguyện đau khổ của tất cả chúng sanh được lắng dịu.

      Om Mani Padme Hum.
