The conference in Lunar New Year 2018: IT IS STRANGE!? (Lạ quá!?)

The conference in Lunar New Year 2018: IT IS STRANGE!? (Lạ quá!?)

I concentrate counting these loaves of bread as I count gold cause It seems only one bread shop in whole Ba Ria city. The seller ask me:

-Do you buy it for temple?

I surprise:

-Why do you ask like that?

He answers:

-Cause I saw you wear the Buddhist robe.

in elegant, gracefull vietnam traditional costume ao dai

I look at my clothes and see it’s same color as temple robe but the style is different

I wonder:

If I wore ao dai, would you think I am Buddhist?

He replies:

No, cause Buddhist wears temple uniform, not ao dai.

I give him a smile while I pay and leave


On the way back, I keep wondering why the world can trust easily, they always trust the book by its cover. Anyone wears zen buddhist robe can be buddhist. Anyone wears monk robe, shaved head, stay in temple, be vegetarian, they would be a monk. There are Buddhists who take Refuge in the Three Jewels, follow Buddha’s teaching but dont wear zen Buddhist robes so the world dont think its true buddhist or even the true Guru who guide sentient beings leave the ignorance and back to the enlightenment but he does not wear monk’s robe, full of hair, eat meat, married then he is not the truth Guru, isn’t he?


I feel very sorry for sentient beings. Their dulled minds judge others by the appearance, not by the true nature so they fall in fake monk’s trap easily. People trust blindly to fake monk cause of their credulity and stupidness so they are always surrounded by their suffering in endless reincarnations. What devastating news! I prayed for calming down all sentient beings suffering.


I look at myself and my heart swelled with gratitude, and the holy pride of Universe Prince- the true Buddhist (don’t persist in what to eat, what to wear) under our holy Guru- the Great wise Guru, the true spiritual Guru’s guidance (who has no shave head, no monk’s robe and not a vegetarian) as Buddha’s teaching “Take wisdom as the cause of practitioner”


If we wear the zen buddhist robe as other Buddhist, we will always be characterized as gray, glooming color. But at Song Nguyen tantra house, under holy Guru’s teaching “Dharma is life and life is Dharma”, our uniform, our clothing are always bright and brilliant as color of the true Dharma spring.Thus, in New Year 2018 festival, female Dharma brothers wore vietnam traditional costume ao dai which are elegant, soft, graceful, courteous and gorgeous as blooming flowers in Dharma garden. Especially, these ao dai were made by Guru’s consort, Ms Mat Dieu with her skillful, delicate hands and many working days and nights so all the disciples can have their beautiful ao dai on time for the New Year 2018 festival. Especially she taught and guided me, another Dharma friend as Mat Thuy, Mat Hoa step by step every single stiches every day until the night before the festival so we could complete our graceful ao dai on time.


It is all blessings and gifts from Guru, Dharani through her delivery chanel so I had finished my own ao dai (because of her close guidance) which I had not had one or even think I would have one in my life since I was born. “ All the troubles in this life is due to not practice Dharma. All prosper in life is due to practice Dharma” Lama Zopa Rinpoche stated. Even it was a wish I dare to dream, it still come true. Thanks to Guru and his consort to let me experience all the amazing things happened in my life because I have the great true spiritural refuge and the devotion to my Guru. And male Dharma brothers were formal and silk-stocking in shirt and dress pants. Everyone is so happy, joyful with the holy pride of Universe Prince- the true Buddhist. What is exculting and thankfully!

It is exactly as what Mat Kien felt in his verse:

“Enjoying life but not sink in pleasure

Giving up this life but body is not out of the life”


We also delighted while we sing all the Dharma songs which were written and composed by Ms Mat Dieu:

Soaking in Dharma refinement:
“Nectar waters
Bring awake to dreaming mind

The right Dhamar words are rippling

Always watering the blooming mind
Dispel the frigid cold of winter

The marvelous glorious Lotus

Shining in Buddhism wisdom

The true nature reverberate through time

(Composer in Dharma song “True Nature”)


Soaking in the grateful for the blessing from Guru, Buddha, Dharma, Sangha

I wrote sincerely

What is a thankful joy!

Guru gives Dharma for well-being

Tantra house is full with laughing day

Full with compassion to enlighten mind

Cross the timeline with wisdom package.

Back to desired harbour, I will be forever, forever grateful”

(Composer in Dharma song “Shimmered sunny flower”)


Soaking in the true happiness replied upon Song Nguyen tantra house under holy Guru’s compassionate guidance:

Let’s sing to fill the air

Cause Tantra House is glad to welcome back

Those feet go foward

With the dream, dream for lasting happiness

Thus we live in joyful today

And have great joy and peace together in tantra house

Luckily! Luckily!

Bless me to be Guru’s disciple for eternity

(Composer in Dharma song “Holy Guru”)

If the true Guru need to be in monk’s robe and shaved head, then why Abbott Ruhula, Abbott Somisara who are from Buddhism country, Sri Lanka, and Professor, Doctor Avinash who lecture at many Buddhist university in India, and school president Sonia Kholi from developed country Dubai traveled here in order to learn Dharma from our holy Guru who is lay Guru.

So their requests to Guru are not because of his appearance but because of his wisdom product through Vimalakirti castle, website, the Dharma treasure with over 1.813 article and lecturer, 83.665 comment. Therefore, they had to overcome many obstacles as long distance, long hours flight, financial problem,.. to come here to learn Dharma as Buddha’s teaching  “Rely on the Dharma, not on the people who expound it. Rely on the meaning, not just on the words, Rely on the wisdom, not on the conscious and perception, Rely on the sutras that lead us to the enlightenment, not on those that do not.”


Guru Rinpoche stated: “The great wise man appear in different form, the con man can wear monk’s clothing to cheat people, don’t mistake rat for gold”

Due to the indifine look, the great wise man materialize as sentient beings to understand their feelings, their sufferings, their wishes so he is able to understand how to lead them compassionately on the right path to enlightenment. With unlimited Bodhicitta, our Holy Guru spent 25 years in researching, surveying, practicing, application and succeed with 6 great spiritual inventions- 6 marvelous methods of Song Nguyen Tantra House which are completely suitable for our country, our time, our culture and also for understanding level of every one.


  1. “It is still apricot blossom at the front yard last night”

    Samyagdrsti-Prabha Samadhi

  2. Eight Dharma methods of taking refuge in the Three Jewels

  3. Uninterrupted offerings

  4. Lotus walking Dharani

  5. Meditation on Bodhicitta

  6. Five Degreé of Chenrezig meditation and Dharani


How about those monk in zen robe and bald head? They do nothing for sentient beings benefit. All they have is just the weaken- mind product to polish their fame, to fulfill their pocket,

to fool sentient beings, to sink them in darkness and bad karma. They are just idiots, hypocrite in monk’s clothes which Guru Rinpoche warned.

Although Buddha state “fake monks are as much as sand in Ganges” in the Dharma ending age, I feel blessed and grateful because it is stil:

“ Don’t say all flowers fall when spring ends

It is still apricot blossom at the front yard last night”

(It is 2 verses written by Zen Man Giac)


It is uncommonly lucky that let us to meet the true Guru who is compassionate, intelligent and lead us to the Deliver path- in order to be well being this life and blissful state next life.

I would like to thank to Guru and your consort, Ms Mat Dieu to help us live in the true happy moments with all the blessings and gifts from Three Jewels through Guru as the delivery chanel.

May Guru and his consort good health, long live. May the right and true Dharma spread all over the world and end all false Dharma and May Center of Research, Application and Practice of Tibetan Yoga, Unesco Club of Research, Application and Practice of Tibetan Yoga grow for the sake of all sentient being.

May sentient beings find the true refuge Guru, Buddha, Dharma, Sanga. May us always awake, mindfulness, attention, developing Guru’s devotion to be peaceful this life and blissful next life.


May all sentient beings achieve the happiness of the Buddha’s nature

    Buddha is my life

    Dhamma is my way

    Sangha is my Spirit

    Respected Guruji, I bow my head at the lotus feet of Guruji.

    I am Tantra Nirvadeva.

    We are fortunate to have our beloved Guruji who has spent  Practicioners 25 years in researching, surveying, practicing, application and succeeded with 6-great Spiritual inventions- 6 marvelous methods of Practices of Song Nugyen Tantra House which is suitable for not only Buddhist Practicioners but also for any common Layman! ” Dharma is life and life is Dharma” is  Guruji’s breath!

    While my Dharma friend Mat Vein praising Buddha Nature and Bodhicitta of our beloved Master Guruji, has rightly pointed out the naked truth that in the present days people judge others by the appearances, not by their true  Nature, so they fall in fake monk’s  trap easily !. Such fake Gurus fool sentient beings to sink them in darkness and bad Karmas. Please be aware ” All that glitters is not Gold” !

    Guru Rinpoochi stated that ” great wise man in different form, common men can wear monk’s clothing to cheat people. Don’t mistake rat for gold!.Buddha said fake monks are as much as sand on Ganges.

    Guru Rinpoochi said ” Don’t judge any person until his death. Time is the only best Judge!”

    Our beloved Guruji of Song Nguyen Tantra House  is a lotus flower, raising from mud water and looking at the Spiritual SUN(  Buddha) for his Spiritual rays of Light!

    Om Mani Padme Hum.

    Long live our beloved Guruji for upholding Dharma.

    • Kính bạch Thầy!

      Con xin phép dịch comment của đạo hữu Tantra Nirvadeva (C H Lakshminarayan) sang tiếng Việt như sau:

      “Kính bạch Thầy tâm linh tôn quý!

      Phật là cuộc sống của con

      Pháp là con đường của con

      Tăng là tinh thần của con

      Con xin cúi đầu đảnh lễ dưới chân sen của Thầy.

      Con là Tantra Nirvadeva.

      Chúng con thật may mắn khi được hạnh ngộ với vị Thầy đã trải qua 25 năm nghiên cứu, khảo sát, thực hành, ứng dụng, có kết quả và phát kiến ra Lục diệu pháp môn của Mật gia Song Nguyễn, phát kiến ra những phương pháp thực hành phù hợp với mọi Phật tử, kể cả những cư sĩ bình thường với phương châm “Pháp là cuộc sống, cuộc sống là Pháp”.

      Đạo hữu Mật Viễn không những tán thán trí tuệ,  và Bồ đề tâm của vị Thầy tôn quý mà còn chỉ rõ thực trạng ngày nay là mọi người thường tin vào vẻ bề ngoài mà không nhìn thấy bản chất nên họ dễ dàng rơi vào bẫy của bọn tà sư. Những tà sư như vậy luôn dùng vẻ bên ngoài để lừa chúng sanh và nhấn chìm chúng sanh trong đêm tối của ác nghiệp. Do vậy, chúng con cần ghi nhờ rằng: “tất cả những gì lấp lánh không phải là vàng”

      Đại sỹ Liên Hoa Sanh cũng đã khuyến cáo: “Bậc đại trí hiện thân với nhiều hình tướng bất định, kẻ hạ trí lừa dối đạo đức giả đội lốt tu hành, đừng nhầm lẫn cặn là vàng.”

      Đại sĩ Liên Hoa Sanh còn cảnh báo:”đừng vội nhận xét ai đến khi họ mất. Thời gian là vị thẩm phán tốt nhất.”

      Vị Thầy tâm linh tôn quý ở Mật gia Song Nguyễn chính là đóa sen vươn lên khỏi bùn đen, đón nhận ánh sáng Phật pháp và lan tỏa những tia sáng tuệ quang của Thầy đến mọi chúng sanh.

      Om Mani Padme Hum.

      Con cầu nguyện Thầy trường thọ vì sự nghiệp hoằng dương chánh Pháp.

      Con – C H Lakshminarayan.”

      “Kính bạch Thầy!

      Con cảm tạ ơn Thầy đã cho con được đọc bài viết này.

      Bài viết thật sinh động, hay và thể hiện niềm hỷ lạc cũng như sự tự tin tràn đầy trong lòng tác giả khi được nhận được ơn phước từ Thầy và được Thầy dạy dỗ.

      Chúng con rất may mắn khi tìm được Thầy. Những lời giáo huấn của Thầy cùng với ơn phước Thầy ban giúp chúng con thực hành theo đúng quỹ đạo chánh pháp để được đời này an lạc, đời sau cực lạc. Nếu không được Thầy chỉ bảo thì kiếp sống này của chúng con trở nên vô nghĩa.

      Những lời dạy của Thầy và những phương pháp thực hành Thầy ban thực sự rất hữu ích cho chúng con và hữu tình trong đời sống hiện đại, hỗn loạn này.

    Dear Mat Vien,

    I am impressed by reading your article. It comes from a mind that is full of devotion towards the Guru and his teachings. It also reminds buddhists of a true spiritual master and how they realize him in this previous human life. Bodhicitta and wisdom are two criterions to judge any Guru. It is so strange comparing to traditional point of view that judges a master by his appearance. For this reason, Buddha once taught that “fake monks are as many as sands in Ganges”.

    I hope to read more of your articles.

    May you be surrounded by Guru, Yidam and Dakini.

    Om Mani Padme Hum.

    Dear holy Guru,

    I have read the article written by Mat Vien. I am happy with her writing. More importantly, I would like to express my gratitude to you and your consort for your great effort to teach us and guide us on the path to enlightenment.

    Under your guidance, we have the right view and “dharma eye” to discern between right view and wrong view, evil monks and authentic Buddhists. You provides us with the “dharma eye” to see the nature of all things, not have attachments on appreance. Guru’s methods draw on the unparalleled depth of your wisdom, compassion and experience and are oriented above all to those wishing to put these methods into practice in daily life.

    Besides, your consort with her heartfelt efforts to make beautiful dress and compose the dharma songs draw on the unparalleled depth of her compassion and experience to help us enjoy the life with beautiful dress Ao Dai and beautiful songs to sing.

    Thank you so much for your great efforts to make us have a beautiful life of a true Buddhist: enjoy life with balanced mind. And everything in secular life becomes the good conditions to practice the dharma under your guidance.

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

    Thank Mat Vien for her beautiful writing. May Mat Vien get all legitimate wish and get joyful on the path to enlightenment.

    I am also delighted with the good deeds of Mat Kha Phuc whose English version is so beautiful. Her translation supports to spread articles on all over the world for the benefit of all being. May Mat Kha Phuc practice the dharma diligently and be at ease on the path of enlightenment.

    May all sentient beings be free from suffering and its causes.

    Om Mani Padme Hum.
