Letter from the US: THANKS TO THE HOLY GURU, I HAVE GOT THE TEACHING JOB (Nhờ Thầy con đã được đi dạy)

Dear holy Guru,

Getting the confirmation of that I was hired to be an English teacher for an international school. My heart is full of joy. It is so much that I cannot express my feeling of happiness now. At the most joyful moment, I would like to share with you and I would like to express my gratitude towards the holy Guru like you who helps me overcome the difficulties in life and gives me the bright light of hope that “practicing the dharma, everything must be good”. Your words are true for me now.

I have been reading articles and commenting on them for a little over a year now. Things in my life have changed drastically especially in the past few months. As Guru knows and some of you know, my physical and mental health have not been good and in the past year my physical health has declined drastically followed of course by my mental health. Though my physical health has not improved, my mental health in the past three and a half months has improved in such a way that I’m able to meditate now and am finding peace and stillness. In that peace and stillness I have been able to find a job teaching English as a foreign language.

Tantra Amishuta

Though I would not want these physical limitations and problems for anyone, it has been helpful in me finding my purpose. I would not have started looking for this kind of work had it not been for my inability to perform other types of jobs. The teaching job is such an amazing thing. I have never dreamed that I could become a teacher because of my inability to perform it. But now I got this wonderful job. It is real, beyond my thoughts and out of my surprise.

There have been ups and downs in my life. Sometime, I feel like that I get failure. But at any time, I always believe that you, the holy Guru is always with me. You always support me and guide me to go cross over my hardies. Every time I am disappointed, I read your articles and it is your positive and pure energy in your articles that gives me strength to go ahead. And It is your support, your belief in me that leads me to the success at present. I have known that teaching job is a common job for everyone, but for me it is a miracle. It has proved that I can do what I would like to help myself and others.

With my husband

I have taught five classes for the school that has hired me and with each class I learn something new about myself and my students. It brings me GREAT joy to be able to help these students learn a language that may help them in the future to be successful and more rounded. On Sunday morning I will get my set schedule for the next two weeks. After that, I will get a more permanent schedule and I will be working with the same groups of students except for when I cover for a teacher who is ill.

I give thanks to the Guru and your lessons because I would not have thought to reach out and think outside of the box without your instructions in your articles. You teach to always look for what is truly happening in your life and how you can accommodate the circumstances. This is exactly what I did and found a job that I love doing. I work in early hours of the morning, I have the rest of my day to continue on with my own lessons and other things that need to be done in life such as my medical appointments. I feel that I’m doing my best to bring a better quality of life for others by doing the best that I can with what I have. I also wanted to tell you that my husband and I are going to try to help other people. This will take focus and planning but I want to give to others as much as I can and make the most out of the life I’ve been given. I’m no longer living in the past or worrying about the future as I once did to the point of obsession. Now I plan for the future by the actions at present through reading, comment and practice the dharma and knowing that practicing the dharma is the best way to make guarantees for my life.

Amishuta’s house

I  live in the present, and though the past is part of mine. I no longer live there. I no longer regret my past as it has brought me to where I am. There are lessons in the past and those I hold with me in the present not to make the same mistakes in the present and future. And I remember the sentences in the “Knowing the Better Way to Live Alone” sutra, Buddha had shown the failure, and taught ways of treatment:

“Do not pursue the past.

Do not lose yourself in the future.

The past no longer is.

The future has not yet come.

Looking deeply at life as it is

In the very here and now,

The practitioner dwells in stability and freedom.

We must be diligent today.

To wait until tomorrow is too late.

Death comes unexpectedly.

How can we bargain with it?

The sage calls a person who knows how

to dwell in mindfulness night and day

“one who knows the better way to live alone”.”

My life indeed has changed a lot since being introduced to this site of chanhtuduy.com but it has only changed for the better. My mental illnesses are still present but I’m managing them much better with things like the articles, commenting, writing, and meditation. The Mani mantra has helped calm me many times in times of despair. I thank you for all of this, holy Guru. I look forward to learning more every single day. I look forward even more to growing every day. AND I look forward to liberation for myself and anyone I can help along the path. May you be well for the sake of all and may we continue on this path to enlightenment.

May all sentient beings free from suffering and get liberation.

Om Mani Padme Hum.

Sincerely,

Your learner

Tantra Amishuta

    • Kính bạch Thầy!

      Con xin phép được dịch comment của đạo hữu Tantra Mahavita sang tiếng Việt như sau:

      “Kính bạch Thầy tâm linh tôn quý!

      Trong con tràn ngập sự biết ơn và niềm hoan hỷ sau khi đọc bài chia sẻ của đạo hữu Tantra Amishuta. Bản thân con cũng không biết dùng từ ngữ nào để thể hiện  lòng biết ơn của con đối với Thầy tôn quý. Thầy đã giúp con vượt qua những giai đoạn khó khăn trong đời sống hàng ngày và Thầy cho con có hội thấy được niềm tin và ánh sáng hy vọng vào một cuộc đời tươi đẹp nhờ thực hành pháp. Thầy đã ban cho con món quà quý nhất trong cuộc sống. Con tin rằng lúc nào Thầy cũng luôn bên con. Trí tuệ và lòng bi mẫn của Thầy luôn chỉ dẫn và cho con sức mạnh để con vững bước trên hành trình giác ngộ. Con chân thành cảm tạ ơn Thầy.

      Thầy dạy con cách nhận ra điều gì đang thực sự xảy ra trong cuộc sống và cách thích ứng với hoàn cảnh. Con cũng cố gắng giúp những người xung quanh con bằng cách chia sẻ những gì con có. Bên cạnh đó, con tinh tấn thực hành pháp, đọc bài và viết comment. Con cũng hiểu rằng đó là cách tốt nhất để đảm bảo có cuộc sống tốt đẹp. 

      Con sống an trú trong hiện tại và cảm ơn qua khứ đã cho con những bài học kinh nghiệm, để con không phạm phải sai lầm trong hiện tại và tương lai. Con học cách sống một mình bằng sự chú tâm, chánh niệm. Con hy vọng con sẽ học được nhiều điều hàng ngày và con hiểu rằng chính những bài viết của Thầy trên chanhtuduy.com đã thay đổi cuộc đời con rất nhiều. Đồng thời, thông qua những bài viết của Thầy con được biết đến thần chú Mani và việc niệm thần chú đã giúp con bình tâm, vượt qua những giai đoạn khó khăn để bây giờ tâm con được  bình an.

      Con chân thành cảm tạ ơn Thầy tôn quý.

      Con cầu nguyện cho bản thân con và hữu tình thoát được khổ đau, phiền não.

      Om Mani Padme Hum.”

    Greetings from the US

    Thank you Guru for posting this letter. Congratulations on your new teaching job. You are a living example of how right thinking and self love can open the door to all possibilities. It is wonderful that you feel such a deep connection to Guru and he has guided you to a place where you have strength and confidence. I wish you success and joy.

  5. Mật Chánh Tấn says:

    Dear Tantra Amishuta,

    I am happy to read your article. I am happy to read what you have shared, about positive changes in your mind and also your life. I am glad that you have found the way to help other people through your teaching job. Thanks to the holy Guru’s teaching, you have gradually found the balance in your life. I believe by taking strong devotion and faith to the holy Guru’s teaching, anyone in all over the world can achieve true happiness in their life and also see the light in the path of Enlightenment and Liberation. According to Lama Zopa’s saying: “Only the practice of Dharma can remove or prevent the cause of one’s own negative karma while create the cause of one’s own happiness”, the achievement that you have got so far could be seen as evidence to prove all benefits from practicing Pure Mind Yoga.

    Thank you for sharing such lovely and bright article. It has motivated us to keep going forward on the path to liberation under the holy Guru’s guidance.

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

    May you practice Dharma diligently and nurture your devotion toward the holy Guru.

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

    Om Mani Padme Hum!

  6. Mật Nhất Nguyên (Lê Duy Trí) says:

    Dear Tantra Amishuta,

    I delight with your sharing about the positive changes in your physical and mental health as well as your life improvements. I delight with your strong believe that the Guru is always with you, despite the hardships at the moment, the sufferings of the past, despite the long distance from the Guru, not to mention the language and ethnicity barriers. The Guru has taught that every time we practice reading and commenting on chanhtuduy.com, we are connecting to the Guru’s speech. Every time we think about the Guru, we are connecting to the Guru’s mind. I am happy for you for experiencing this blessing by doing just that. Thank you for your sharing!

    May the Holy Guru and his consort have good health and longevity for the sake of all sentient beings. May Tantra Amishuta achieve all of your rightful wishes. May all sentient beings attain the happiness of Buddha’s nature.

    Om Mani Padme Hum.

    Dear Holy Guru,

    My greetings to my fellow chanhtuduy students

    I’m so grateful knowing the status now of our sibling in chanhtuduy, Tantra Amishuta. She’d been familiar to me by name since I have seen her most in comments and articles. Surely, the wisdom of the holy Guru is so great that it brings miracle to someone’s life. I myself has been a proof. I haven’t gone that far much in knowing the wisdom of Buddhism but he makes ways for us readers to get indulge in it easily and wonderfully.

    Just like our sister, Tantra Amishuta, I’ve been out from a stable job for a long while now. Things has been hard that people around me who happened to be my wall and whom I believed to be a roof as I go towards my goal has started to question my fate. Inspirations turns to be cold. I was at a point then of feeling like a lost floaters in the mid of a huge ocean that I cannot figure out where the sun rise up or sets down. Until one time when a blink of a star Sparks on the dark sky in the person of a wonderful friend, Mat Dieu Hanh. She leads me to my access to know chanhtuduy. And there I found the words of wisdom of the holy Guru.

    At present, still hanging for a job, no permanent source of income or stable gain to make things well-off. I understand, my profession isn’t that easy to depend on in my country. Physical Therapy situation here is a tough kind. I have some patients but I decline to take charge for not service, consideringbtheir status in life. But I keep on going with them thinking that it is their right a human to be given the service that they needed. Yet, if not me, then who will. Only those who has enough bank account can afford PT service here. Nevertheless, my shortcomings can’t prevent me from sharing what I know i can to my fellows.

    This takes me to remember an article I once read here in chanhtuduy, the lychees vendor whom the holy guru happened to meet one of his journey. That the holy Guru just bought his items even though he doesn’t feel like buying it, just to help the vendor gain something. Also with the story of one among the the article regarding Abbot who claimed to remain in silence and refill the lost collection in a monastery. Not bad to stand for something that is missing if you think you got the access to it so, I believe.

    I am happy to know that our sister and her husband are doing ways to help others too, and her devotion of teachings to fill up youngsters mind with their knowledge to go through a wonderful life. Truly you are a blessing to them. With all your hardship, you are now in a purpose to inspire others. I am so thankful for sharing your success. By reading your story, I have felt my self that my moment will soon also come my way.

    My gratitude to the Holy Guru who always makes an access to get in touch with us all.

    May all be in peace and have a wonderful living.

    I am Tantra Maruta, from the Philippines.

    Om Mani Padme Hum

    Greetings Holy Guru 

    Thank you for sharing this motivating article and it’s rewarding to read such testaments from those who trust the practice. I sincerely wish Tantra Amishuta to continue well on her spiritual and professional path with diligence and wisdom.  There are challenging situations in my life as well and I have surrendered to the dharma to take care and I feel that my role is to commit myself to the practice and honestly follow the guidance and pointings.  With your grace and guidance everything will work well. Such moments are meant for reflection and looking deep with the objective to learn and evolve. I am so very grateful for the dharma, spiritual teachers and fellow practitioners who help us steer through life challenges with a strong foundation in the practice.  Deep bow of gratitude Om Mani Padme Hum
