ON THE OCCASION OF VESAK 2564 (2020): ENLIGHTENING (Bài viết nhân ngày Phật Đản năm 2020 ( Phật lịch 2564): SOI SÁNG )

The rays of the morning sunshine enter my room through the small window to welcome my new day. The sunshine gets shining, making the sky really fresh and bright. The light golden rays gently are passing through the leaves, innocently going through the branches. The sunshine hangs out with the flowers which are waving gently in the wind. The sunlight comes to dispel the long, humid, and rainy days in Hanoi. Watching the blazing sunshine, I happen to remember the Buddha’s teaching in the sutra of Anguttara Nikaya that Tantas Upatissa quoted in his article: “There are, O monks, these four lights. What four? The light of the moon, the light of the sun, the light of fire, and the light of wisdom. Of these four lights, the light of wisdom is supreme.”

The light of wisdom is supreme

Tantra Upatissa may be one of many learners who have experienced the benefit of the light of wisdom through Thanh Tri Mind Dharma which has been invented by Guru through survey, research, application and practice resulting in achievement gained for more than 20 years. He had been suffered from stress, anxiety, depression and insomnia so severely that he could not sleep for 20 years, then he was enlightened by the light of wisdom from chanhtuduy.com which has been shining upon his life and swept away the darkness of worries and ignorance. His sincere thoughts about the lights of wisdom from Guru touched me.

Tantra Upatissa

Before learning from Guru, I had suck in the long nights of samsaric sorrow, anxiety and psychological inhibition and I had thought about suicide many times.  I was not aware of the dangers of a silent disease named depression, I did not think that it was such a serious illness that it could end my life. Therefore; I had no thought of psychological treatment. Psychological therapies are often only for people with mental illness. A person  with the common behaviors like me who was dying when faced with psychological disturbances, alone facing enemies of depression daily, neither needed any psychological therapies nor thought about going to see a physician for treatment, let alone the high cost of psychotherapy and the long –term treatment.

Thanks to articles on chanhtuduy.com, Guru’s encouragement and his righteous criticism which help me out of the terrible nights gradually.  When I was immersed in the suffering called “inferior complex”, I always remembered the images of Guru who always stands tall, faces all difficulties or obstacles, shielding disciples to overcome  the storms of samsara and making Song Nguyen Tantra House developed fast in this ending age of Dharma. These images bring me strengths and I became strong enough to take the weapons of right view provided by Guru and fight against the depression in me. In addition, when I get depressive, the “mantra” “everything will be fine” coming from the other line wakes me up and guides me to come back the path of enlightenment. Gradually, thanks to the delicate and devoted guidance of Guru.

I think that not only me or Tantra Upatissa, many other learners also enjoy the light source of wisdom from Guru and we get inner happiness, worldly success and social achievement for the joy in this life and long-lasting bliss next life. Guru has been working hard for the ultimate liberation of all beings and converting all sentient beings, curing the roof of suffering for all learners based on the spiritual dialectic science in accordance with the Buddha’s wisdom. Guru has invented six marvelous spiritual practices, Thanh Tri Mind Dharma which helps all beings irrespective of social class, gender, nationality, etc overcome all difficulties.  His lights of wisdom and compassion become the true shelter for many people.

Tantra Sutradaka, as you know, is a professor who has taught in many universities, made many scientific studies, written many books and assignments about how to apply Buddhist teachings into daily life for the betterment. But he always relies on Guru’s lights of wisdom for the liberation from suffering. He wrote that: “Fortunate are those who are having the protective hands that never allow the boat of the life sink even in the tormenting tides of the ocean. Perhaps I am one of them whose protection of the future is in the mighty hands of a Guru, though living far away from me in the space measurements, but very near to me who senses my every untoward situation, better than me…. It is Guru who is capable to destroy the darkness and spread the knowledge.

Tantra Sutradaka is a professor who has taught in many universities

We are fortunate enough to be perpetually been supervised by kind compassionate and perfect Guru of the modern world, who will never allow us to go astray. The regular reading of his articles arise in us the art and acumen of this discerning knowledge for differentiating between the glittering and the Gold, Diamond and simple imitation.”

Tantra Niverdave, an 81 year-old doctor, who has profound knowledge about Buddhism has written a poem full of Guru’s devotion.

Tantra DharmapaBodhisita, Asc. Prof. Vikas Singh Guatam – Head of Sanskrit Dept., University of Marwari, Darbhanga, India, a translator who speaks fluently 7 languages, and was invited to make a speech on the United Nations Day of Vesak Celebration 2019 in Vietnam, has recently added more color for Vimalakirti castle by translating Guru’s articles into Hindi. He wishes to help India practitioners who cannot speak in English have opportunity to access to the lights of wisdom on chanhtuduy.com. Righ view was chosen as the scientific research for his doctoral thesis, but until he read and translated Guru’s article, he could understand the profound meaning with only two words “right view”:

“Through this article, now my mind is clear about the various aspects of Right View. The real interpretation of Dhamma is very important in this scientific age. Guru, your words are so generous for us to understand the Dhamma’s in real way. Continuously, I understand the Buddhist literature now in depth too due to your explanations. While translating your words in exact sense of Buddhist literary terms, when I was seeing the text of Acharya Nagarjuna entitled Dharmasangraha (Excellent Collections of Docrtine), first time I heard about Four Foundations of Mindfulness” (चार स्मृतिप्रस्थान) and “The Four Reliances” (चार प्रतिशरण) first time. I am ensuring myself that I will find the details of these in your further articles.”

Prof Dhan Singh Ravi – English Dept. – University of Gangeshwari, Amroha-JP Nagar, India., India also commented on Guru’s article that: ““I bow my head to your lotus feet. I have read some of your other lessons also and found them quite beneficial for guidance in life. This article is much inspiring and didactic. As far as I have learnt from this article is that the real happiness as well as pleasure is in being satisfied with what we have. What have lost does matter but what matters is in being satisfied with what remains with us.  This valuable lesson of yours teaches me how to enjoy life both in favourable and adverse circumstances. Thanks a lot for not only beautiful but meaningful lesson. Highly obliged yours.”

And agreeing with those scientists’ point of view, Prof. Chukwugozie Maduka – University of North Texas, United States of America, who has decided to find the path to get free from suffering by reading and comment on chanhtuduy.com. He affirmed that “Extremely illuminating and timely at this perilous time. Thank yo, Guru. Would love to come over and study at your feet.”

Mat Nhi Khang’s voice brings me back. Watching the sunlight is gradually shining brightly, I think about the light source of right view from Thanh Tri Mind Dharma spreading throughout the world, helping all sentient beings get awaken and I happen to remember a saying by Egerton C. Baptist in his book “the Supreme Science of the Buddha” it goes: “the supramundane knowledge of Buddhism begins where science leaves off”

Dear Guru,

On the occasion of  Vesak Day, I, Mat Dieu Hang, rejoice in praising your wisdom, bodhichitta and I sincerely thank you for helping me to be free from the long and dark days of sorrow and suffering in samsara, giving me a new chapter in my life full of right view through your six marvelous spiritual practices, Thanh Tri Mind Dharma. I promise that I will diligently practice so that I can repay for your kindness and compassion.

I sincerely pray for the health and longevity of Guru and your consort for upholding the Dharma.

May the light of wisdom enlighten every corner of the world.

May the pure fragrance of Thanh Tri Yoga pervade every direction.

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

May the covid 19 epidemic be soon over.

Om Mani padme Hum.

    Dear Guru,

    Seeking enlightenment fo a serious problem like depression is very wise. I think it would be much more successful and affordable than a medical Doctor. I am very thankful for the teaching of the Holy Guru. Following your teaching and cultivating will alleviate suffering as we strive toward enlightenment which will bring inner joy and inner peace.We will sleep peacefully..

    Dear Guru,

    I bow my head to Guru’s lotus feet.  Guru’s merit is immeasurable!!!

    Thank you so much for letting me read this article prepared by Mật Diệu Hằng.  She expresses Guru devotion and sings Guru’s praises so beautifully and so perfectly; I wholeheartedly echo her sentiments!!!  It was touching to read her own personal story of transformation thru her own learning and practice working in concert with Guru’s compassion, inventions, and instruction.  What a pleasure that she also incorporates comments from other learners and disciples from all across the globe.


    Guru is not just in Vietnam but is miraculously all around the world, all the time thru chanhtuduy.com.

    My favorite part of this article was the closing lines from the poem written by Tantra Niverdave:

    “Therefore, we the humble devotees and disciples pray and praise you as the embodiment of Buddha Himself to bless all sentient beings and lead kindly Light in the path of Enlightenment!”

    For me, this occasion of Vesak 2564 (2020) is very special.  Buddha’s birthday is worthy of celebration because I’m happy he was born. The only sadness was Buddha’s birth took place millennia ago.  But this is my first Vesak as Tantra Lanidha and this is my first Vesak with Guru; and this is my first Vesak knowing:

    GURU IS BUDDHA!!!

    How fortunate to have this opportunity that Tantra Niverdave so eloquently described above in the lines from his poem; And how fortunate for us to learn from a True Guru.  Washed away is any sadness of not having lived in the time of Buddha because, as I said earlier, He is miraculously all around the world, all the time!!!

    May our learning, pace, practice, and application of Dharma perfectly reflect the magnitude this of fortune we have; and may they also perfectly reflect the magnitude of the blessing to have this opportunity, thru Guru!!!

    May all of us, our Guru’s disciples, always remember to contemplate and practice the three marvellous essences of the path to enlightenment (renunciation, bodhicitta, and emptiness) in the base of faithful Guru devotion.

    May all sentient beings have favorable chance to meet a Tantric Guru in this life, then follow him to reach the happiness of the Buddha Nature.

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

    May the illness, suffering, pain, and fear caused by the Novel Coronavirus pandemic come to an end.

    Om Mani Padme Hum
