SOLUTION TO THE SPIRITUAL PROBLEMS OF AKSHAY KUMAR (Giải tỏa khúc mắc tâm linh cho trò Akshay Kumar)


INTRODUCTION: Akshay Kumar has made comments on several times. Now, he wrote an email to me about his spiritual problems and he asked me for help to give him the solution to his spiritual problems . Here is his writing:

Dear holy Guru,

My name is. Akshay Kumar. I am from India. I have read some articles on your articles are meaningful and I love them very much.

I love learning Buddhism for the enlightenment. My wish is to practice dharma for my life. But there are some problems happening to me. And with your wisdom and compassion, please help me to protect me from my problems.

Akshay Kumar

My problem are: 1. I am unable to sleep early during nights from past many years. Almost 20 years. 2. I am unable to detach myself from lust. 3. most of times i get scary dreams, of evils or many times fighting with tigers and lion..I am restless

I am thankful to you for your reading my letter.

I am looking forward to hearing from you.

May the Guru live long for the sake of all beings.

May all beings free from sufferings.

Om Mani Padme Hum.


Dear Akshay Kumar,

As I know, your problems are the same with Nguyen Hai (from Australia), Mat Phe Ro (from Ninh Thuan), Mat Quynh Tram (from HCM city), Mat Thanh Van (from Hanoi) and Mat Thu Ha (from Kien Giang)…..In spite of not the same situations, every disciples has your own similar problems. Thus, you should be calm down and know that you are not the only one with your own problems. Everyone has also experienced such psychological anxiety at their youth. When contemplating these things comprehensively, The Guru Rinpoche warned: “Do not consider anything as a defect, all has their own function” (quoted from the book “Advice from the Lotus-Born”). What you should do now is how to transform them towards the right path.

Lotus Flower Estrade in Song Nguyen Tantra House

Dear Akshay Kumar,

You are worried that your insomnia will have bad effect on Dharma practice, but do not worry! I have revealed the six methods of Dharma practice at Song Nguyen Tantra House on October 9, 2016, one of six methods called “Samyagdrsti-prabha Samadhi” (reading articles and writing comments on supports you with right view) is useful for you. This method is written on such articles: “A few thoughts on readers of” and “A lotus flower with six petals” as well as “Fragrance of Virtue Spreads Everywhere”, “Worldly pleasures from perspective of tantra“, (all was translated into English). So you should not feel guilty of the bad habit because you can practice the method called “Samyagdrsti-prabha Samadhi” at anytime, anywhere. This method does not depend on the time or place. On the other hand, if you want to sleep well, you should open my lectures to hear before sleeping, no need to understand. I am sure you will be easy to fall asleep gentlely. Many disciples at Song Nguyen Tantra House have already experienced this method and got the good results.

You should not have feelings of inferiority due to lust. Do you have the fear of violating the precept No.3? You should have profound understanding as follows: when you practice Buddha dharma, besides keeping precepts, there are also many other spiritual activities to accumulate merit because keeping precepts is only one of six perfections (ṣatpāramitā). According to methods of dharma practice in Vajrayana, especially Nyingma lineage, Tibetan Buddhism, cultivating precepts is divided into four categories: closing, opening, observing, breaking and it operates in accordance with 3 aspects including: (1) The pure precepts which include all rules and observances, or to avoid evil by keeping the discipline (demeanors), (2) The pure precepts which include all wholesome dharmas (virtue), (3) The pure precepts which include all living beings (The power which comes from enlightenment). This relates to the composition, objects, motivation, purposes of cultivators by which the five desires becomes the five Tathagata. Thus, Sage Tilopa taught his disciples that the five desires themselves are not harmful, the potential risks and hidden consequences appear due to the practitioner’s attachment and their abusive behaviors.

Finally, the nightmare made you restless, anxious leading to insomnia and you thought you were faced every night harassment by the evil, which is wrong. You should rejoice instead of anxiety because it is the process of purifying the bad karma when someone decides to seek the path to liberation. Every nightmares is equivalent to a 100 times reduction of the consequences which you must suffer when incurring karmic retribution comparing to non-Buddhists. Therefore, a saying goes that ignorance leads fear, knowledge increases power.

After all, do not worry, think positively instead. It called “wise attention” (yoniso manasikàra). You will transform your current bad karma into good karma. Based on the great dignity of the Guru Rinpoche, Yidam and Dakini, I prescribe the treatment for your spiritual illness as follows:

1/ Everyday, you take a sedative tablet equivalent to reading an article and writing a comment on You need to take 50 tablets then I will change the spiritual medicine.

2/ Before going to bed, pray as follows: according to the teaching of Guru Thinley Nguyen Thanh, May all sentient beings achieve the ultimate state of liberation.

May you achieve the happiness of Buddha’s nature.

Om Mani Padme Hum.

    Dear Guru,
    I have read this article. Thank you so much for your compassion to make clarification about my problems and give the treatment for me. Now I understood and I will take a medicine everyday.
    May the Guru live long for the sake of all beings.
    May all beings free from sufferings.
    Om Mani Padme Hum.

  2. To holy Guru,

    I have read your explanation to Akshay Kumar. I am glad to know that the readers from both inside and outside Vietnam have found their way to refuge in no one else but your wisdom and Bodhicitta. This is not only a guidance to him but also for all of us, through which I found inconceivable marvelousness of the Tantra path I am following.

    Lay followers like us are living in an environment that has many inevitable chances to contact with five desires (wealth, sensual pleasure, fame, food and sleep) or five sensory pleasures (form, sound, scent, taste and physical touch). Monks or nuns who have monastic life are not exceptional but the level of contact is more sophisticate. This is as vital as breaths of life cause any ordinary persons may fall in the cycle of these desires.

    As a result, many Buddhist enthusiasts often feel a complex in entering the gate of Dharma, particularly if they come across rigid and inflexible rules of monastic life many Buddhist schools are observing.

    However, it’s so lucky and unique as Tantrayana can help lay followers like us to turn our dream come true by skillful means (upaya) which take advantage of our own disadvantages or unfavorable conditions of surrounding environment. Just like the teaching of Guru Rinpoche:” Do not consider anything as a defect. All has their own function.”

    Specifically, you have taught us that the practitioner need not confront with sensory pleasures but look deep into their nature with a wonderful weapon of mindfulness, clear consciousness and concentration. This will help transform these five poisons into five wisdoms of Tathagata. In Song Nguyen Tantra House, such skillful means is “Samyagdrsti-prabha Samadhi” which helps us quickly accumulate merits by listening to the Dharma (read article and listen to audio sermons of the Guru) and delivery Dharma sermon (writing article or comment), two of ten spiritual activities in Buddhism.

    Besides, we can also have chances to wallow in the pure field of the Guru and fellow vajra brothers. From the blessings of Yidam through transport channel of the Guru, we will gradually wipe out blemishes of mind thanks to centering our mind around the Guru, Buddha, Dharma and Shangha. Thanks to your method of practice, we can overcome hindrances, both visible anf invisible, to enjoy our life and get spiritual progress at the same time.

    Thank you for bestow on Akshay Kumar and us a beneficial sermon.
    May Guru and your consort live long and strong for the sake of all sentient beings
    May Akshay Kumar soon get over difficulties and gain achievements both in secular and spiritual lives.
    May all sentient beings open the Door of Enlightenment

    Om Ah Hum

    Dear Guru,

  8. Dr. C H Lakshmi narayan. says:

    Is there any One in this world who is absolutely free from suffering and worries ?  Yes ( 4 – Noble Truths). Yes ! There are a few like Buddha who are Enlightened and attained  NIRVANA. ! Hence, most of us one or the other problems either  physically, mentally or phsycologically.

    Guruji has suggested effective line of treatment to overcome the problems of my Dharma brother Akshay Kumar (and so many others

    sailing in the same boat ) as a soluti oon to their problems.!

    Only thing I am afraid of one may get drug addiction if one takes continuously a sedative drug for insomnia !

    Why not we take alternately , as suggested by Guruji, an equally effective Spiritual drug namely  “Samyagdrishti Prabha samadhi ”

    When we have options at our choice ? which is an equavalent Spiritual drug ?

    Guruji’s advice :

    ” Do not consider anything as a defect. All have their own functions ” ( quoted from the book ” Advice from the lotus born ” ). Only you should transform them to the right path. Always do not worry and think positively.
