PRAYER – Part 1: FROM FACTS TO SPIRITUAL PRACTICE (Cầu nguyện: Từ sự kiện thực tế đến hoạt động tâm linh – phần 1)

PRAYER – Part 1: FROM FACTS TO SPIRITUAL PRACTICE (Cầu nguyện: Từ sự kiện thực tế đến hoạt động tâm linh – phần 1)

PRAYER – Part 1: From Facts to Spiritual Practice


The death of three people (including one child) and injury of  183 others (including 8 children) in a terror attack at Boston Marathon (USA) in April 2013 has left people around the world with deep regret and sadness. Students and volunteers held various forms of praying ceremonies. Members of religious sects showed their heart through sincere prayers. Such genuine wave of prayer has never taken place countrywide like that on that day of mourning! Candles were lighted, incense was burnt, funeral wreathes and bunches of flowers were respectfully put in front of their coffins during and after the funeral ceremony. 


It seems that each time a publicly significant incident occurred, people begin to look for an ease of psychological stress – that is praying. Praying is not only a cultural behavior in spiritual activities but also a traditional practice of many nations around the world. 

Event 1

HH. Gyalwal Drukpa XII

In the morning of April 14th 2010, HH. Gyalwang Drukpa XII was leading thousands of Buddhist followers walking around Swayambhunath Tower when the tragic information of earthquake in Gyekundo flied to him. He was informed that only 10 out of 300 bhikkhus in the collapsed Thrangu Gompa had luckily escaped from death, the rest remained missing. 


Event 2
Previously on March 4th, 2009, in the plateau of Ladakh (Nepal), around 45,000 people gathered in a praying ceremony guided by HH. Gyalwang Drukpa XII despite the biting cold weather of minus 18 degree Celsius. All sincerely prayed for the prosperity and safety of the country, peace of the world and happiness of the sentient beings.

Event 3
In the full moon week of October 2010, a flow of over 300 Buddhist monks and lay people of Drukpa lineage walked on a pilgrimage from Kathmandu (Nepal) to Bodhgaya, practicing many praying sessions to transfer merits to the beings. 


Children in Gyekundo, Laddak,… are praying in the call of HH. Gyalwang Drukpa

In December 2010, the pilgrims also made a walking trip from Darjeeling (India) to Sikkim to pray for a peaceful world, concordant mankind, happy family, harmonious sangha and a great bliss for sentient and non-sentient beings. It is reported that both pilgrimages were led by HH. Gyalwang Drukpa. 

Praying ceremonies are not only held by HH. Gyalwang Drukpa XII but also by pagodas, monasteries, temples, retreat centers…. for various good intentions. 


In Vietnam, on the occasion of 1000th anniversary of Thang Long, the Central Committee of the Buddhist Sangha of Vietnam organized a ceremony in Bai Dinh Pagoda to pray for those of Ly family who died in writhe for a rebirth in higher realms. 

Lotus Flower Estrade in Song Nguyen Tantra House



On February 19, 2008 (January 10 in Lunar calendar), more than 300 people from two Buddhist cemters of Phat Hanh and Phat Minh Tu in Hanoi and Hai Phong gathered in Truc Lam Tay Thien Zen Monastery to pray for a nation of peace, safety and prosperity while the deaths are reborn into higher realms.

Previously, monks and nuns in Quan Su Pagoda held a ceremony praying for a good rebirth of two millions of people who starved to death in 1954 in Northern Vietnam, caused by Japanese fascists and French colonialists. The media has sometimes informed similar events held by local pagodas and monasteries to pray for those who died in battlefields or accidents. 


Pad Yatra – The pilgrimage to sacred site in Sri Lanka

Early in the morning of August 6th, 2010, thousands of Thai people gathered to pray at places where dead people were found and at high buildings that were burnt down in the worst political crisis ever over the past two decades in Bangkok. The sound of prayers from 1000 monks and nuns mixed with those from Islamic, Catholic and Hindu priests and followers resounded in ten places around the city.



“We pray to summon the Supreme Being for help. Things come back normal now but our fear and concern have remained as no one knows what will happen in the future”, said Sumir Khorano, a high ranking figure in Hinduism. Many Thai people shared the same concern at this moment.


Event 4

Japanese Doctor Emoto has made an experience to find out the power of prayers

Prayer not only has impacts on human beings, animals and invisible creatures but also on unconscious plants or water. Japanese Doctor Emoto has made an experience like this: a glass of water received positive prayers from 500 people all around Japan, the water crystals were found to form a beautiful flower with six petals, the water quality was remarkably cleaner and purer than tap water’s though they were both taken from a public source. Vice versa, the water showed ugly crystal formations when being exposed to negative and rude words. (Quoted from Enlightenment Monthly Edition in March 2003)

The power of prayers can’t be denied in such situations. Dr. Emoto has newly found out marvelous power of prayers through a scientific invention but long time ago, religious sects employed prayers as a wonderful mode of spiritual practice which brought back unbelievable results.

    Dear Guru

     

    Thank You for the teaching

     

    Emoto Sensei’s book was also popular in Korea.

    thank you for bringing that up with praying

     

    I also love Joel Goldsmiths’ praying & teachings which were introduced by Eckhart Tolle many times.

     

    May myself enjoy & master praying like these masters

    Dear Guru thank you for sharing this incident which shows power of prayers. Hope all beings may start doing prayers for other beings.

    May all beings stay healthy and in peace. May guru live long for sake of other beings.

  5. Tantra Mikaya ( Jane) says:

    Thank you Holy Guru for your generosity to translate this article to the prayers for us. As you know, I was born in a socialist system and spent my childhood without knowing prayers or being aware of the power of these prayers. Sometimes I knelt and sent a prayer or a question to heaven. With the request for your own wishes and needs. When I read in Buddhism about prayers that are for the benefit of all. In Buddhism Buddhists pray for mantras or a prayer of prayer for the benefit of all who need special help or good thoughts. Buddhists pray that all people are freed from suffering, that all people have no bad thoughts or feelings, that they think clearly and thus find enlightenment. I felt the power of prayers as these prayers influenced my mind and my actions so that I found inner peace and even in meditation I prayed. In some religions, prayers are tied at times, but I prefer the morning and even the evening prayers but also in the minutes in which I feel it gives me strength. This is my personal statement. We should see the prayers as a source of power for us and make us aware that with our clear, good spirit and through the power of the Sangha we can achieve our goals. May the nature of Buddha be understood and honored. May all beings be free from suffering. May our Guru be in good health and have a long and fulfilled life. Om Mani Padme Hum

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

      Kính bạch Thầy tâm linh tôn quý,

      Con cảm tạ ơn Thầy vì đã quảng độ cho dịch bài viết về cầu nguyện của Thầy sang tiếng Anh để con được đọc bài viết này của Thầy. Con sinh ra trong một xã hội mà từ nhỏ con không biết gì về cầu nguyện và con không nhận thức được năng lực của những lời cầu nguyện. Trước kia, đôi khi con quỳ  xuống và cầu nguyện trước chúa. Đó là những lời cầu nguyện cho bản thân và cho nhu cầu của cá nhân con. Khi con được học đạo Phật và đọc bài viết của Thầy về những câu cầu nguyện cho sự lợi lạc của tất cả hữu tình. Con hiểu được, trong đạo Phật, Phật tử cầu nguyện cho hữu tình thông qua việc trì niệm thần chú, và thực hành cầu nguyện cho sự lợi lạc của tất cả chúng sanh, cho những ai đang trong hoàn cảnh khó khăn, khẩn cấp. Những lời cầu nguyện thường là: cầu nguyện đau khổ của tất cả chúng sanh được lắng dịu, cầu nguyện tất cả chúng sanh đoạn trừ khổ đau, phiền não; cầu nguyện tất cả chúng sanh phát triển tuệ tri để viên thành đạo quả. Con cảm nhận rõ năng lực cầu nguyện ảnh hưởng tích cực đến tâm trí con, giúp con có những hành động tích cực, có sự bình an nội tại và khi con hành thiền con cũng cầu nguyện.

      Ở một số tôn giáo khác, cầu nguyện cần phải thực hành theo giờ cố định, nhưng khi học Thầy, con có thể cầu nguyện vào buổi sáng, và buổi tối hoặc bất kỳ khi nào con thấy thuận lợi. Theo con hiểu, cầu nguyện giống như một nguồn năng lực tạo nên sức mạnh cho Phật tử và chúng con cũng nên ý thức thực hành cầu nguyện với tâm chân thành, hoan hỷ và kết nối với trường thanh tịnh của vị Thầy, thông qua sự để tâm của Thầy, thông qua kênh vận chuyển của Thầy, chúng con sẽ viên thành ước nguyện chính đáng. Con cầu nguyện tất cả chúng sanh hiểu được và tôn kính tâm Phật trong hình tướng của các vị Thầy chân chính. Cầu nguyện đau khổ của tất cả chúng sanh được lắng dịu.

      Con thành tâm cầu nguyện Thầy luôn mạnh khỏe, trường thọ vì sự lợi lạc của chúng sanh.

      Om Mani Padme Hum.”

  6. Dear holy Guru,

    I am very excited to read your article relating to prayers. I am full of happiness and joy in your good deeds of writing such a wonderful article about prayers.

    This article reminds me of the power of prayers which help me and all sentient beings a lot, especially the beings in need. Obviously, praying is a practice to awaken my inherent inner capacities of strength, compassion and wisdom rather than petition external forces based on worldly gain.

    After reading this article, I understand that the power of prayers is proved vividly in both spiritual activities and scientific experience. With good motivation, praying inspires my mind towards compassion and wisdom, as well as make the benefit for others and myself. It allows me to turn my unpure thought towards pure and compassionate thought when connecting with the pure energy from Pure Land. With strong belief in prayers while connecting to pure energy, I can get a good result for me and others.

    More importantly, praying to the Guru with pure conception for his blessing is the fasest way to get successful. There is a quote from the book of “the words of my perfect teacher” by Patrul Rinpoche as follows: “better than mediating on a hundred thousand deities for ten million kalpas is to think of one’s teacher for a single instant”. Thus, by praying to Guru with unwavering faith and devotion, Tantric practitioners will certainly receive his compassionate blessings, which flow timelessly and boundlessly for the benefit of all sentient beings and help Tantric practitioners success this life and next life.

    I would like to express my gratitude to you for your article.

    I take great delight in Mat Hue Pháp’s good deed of translating your article into English. Her English version supports to flourish your teaching all over the world for the sake of all sentient beings.

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

    May Mat Hue Phap and her dharma family achieve all wishes and be at ease on the path to enlightenment.

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

    Om Mani Padme Hum.

  7. Tantra Citta says:

    Dear Holy Guru,

    Buddhist prayer awakens our inherent inner capacities of compassion, strength and wisdom. It is a form of meditation, a practice of inner reconditioning. Buddhist prayer replaces the negative with the virtuous and points us to the blessings of life. For us fellow Buddhist’s, prayer expresses an aspiration to pull something into one’s life, like some new energy or purifying influence and share it with all sentient beings. Likewise, prayer inspires our hearts towards wisdom and compassion for others and ourselves. If we truly believe in something enough, it will take hold of us. We will become what we believe. The ability to be touched like this is evidence of the working of great Compassion within us. The wonderful thing about prayer practice is that we can do it everywhere and anytime, transforming the ordinary and mundane, allowing us to turn our hearts and minds to the beneficial, and rousing our thoughts and actions towards Awakening. Buddhist prayer enriches our lives with deep spiritual connection and makes every moment special, manifesting the Pure Land, here and now! I give special thanks to our esteemed Master and his consort for giving me a user name and password for accessing the wonderful website of Song Nguyen Tantra House and also sincerely grateful for the prayers on my behalf, by all Dharma friend’s. Let my fellow disciples and students rise up and joyfully practice Buddhist prayer daily with happiness and wisdom in their mind, body and speech as we venture forth towards the ultimate goal of Buddha Nature. Blessings to all my sentient beings. Om Mani Padme Hum ❤️ Tantra Citta (Jeffrey Bernard Forest)

  8. Steve Rogers says:

    Dear Holy Guru

    Many thanks for your teaching.

    It is clear to me that the power of prayer is immense both in the healing of hurt and the power to heal all wrongs.

    To be taught to pray in the right way is a pleasure to learn and to use those prayers, given us, is an honour and we must ensure we use them for good deeds to ensure they are used to reduce the suffering for all beings.

    May the Holy Guru have good health and live long for the benefit of all sentient beings. May all sentient beings achieve the happiness of Buddha’s nature.

    For your consideration Holy Guru

    Thank you for the happiness your teaching brings me

    Dear Guru,

    Thank you for your first part of the Prayer series: “From facts to spiritual practice”. These events from the article show that praying is not a cultural behaviour in spiritual activities but also a traditional practice of many nations around the world as a way to help people ease their psychological stress. On the other hand, from the scientific angle, Japanese Doctor Emoto found out marvellous power of prayers, which were used as a wonderful mode of spiritual practice in religious sects very long time ago.

    May Guru and your consort, Ms Mat Dieu good health and longevity for the benefit of all sentient beings.

    May the Covid-19 epidemic will soon come to an end and may all sentient beings be free from suffering.

    Dear Holy Guru,
    I am so excited to read this interesting article about prayers. Your article has opened my eyes about the marvelous power of praying. Prayer has affect not only on human beings, animal, invisible creatures but also on nature, on science. Praying is not only a cultural behavior in spiritual activities but also a traditional practice of many nations around the world. The prayer with good intention toward the sentient beings, to the world, to people who in need will blow away our bad and selfish thoughts. However, how many people can join those praying ceremonies when those have happened only once per year at the tied time and place? How an ordinary people like me can do prayers?  And how to pray in the right way and how to use those prayer? Those questions had bothered me for a long time. Guru has enlightened me and I have answers for all my concerns. With Guru teaching, I can practice prayer whole day through daily activities without travel to anywhere and the prayer has happened continuously. Dear Guru, I would like to express my gratitude to your mercy, compassion and Bodhicitta.

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

    May Covid-19 pandemic will end soon.

    May all sentient beings be free from suffering.

    Om Mani Padme Hum.
