Letter No. 226 to disciples: The miraculous power of Vajra

Dear disciples,

The word “Prince” is standing steadily, gets as high as the sky and the cloud is behind the arch of the resort, which makes the sightseeing of the resort more royal and more splendid. Inside, you will find the crown of the prince with the elegant white color in the most luxury villa in Can Tho city. In front of the villa, there is the large area for the performance of water music show. There are some restaurants, cafés and entertainment services around the villa. The sceneries here are embellished with natural colors in harmony with the romantic Hau River, which is patting “Prince” days and nights (see photo).

Hall to the conference room, where the Dharma festival took place

This is the place where the Dharma festival “Repay The Four Great Debts” is held. But you should not think it is easy for us to find out such a beautiful place. Before finding “Prince” resort, I came to Van Phat resort where there were a 4 start hotel next to, but I was not satisfied with it not due to the high price, but the main reason is that the hall did not meet the standard for Song Nguyen Tantra House to hold the Dharma festival. There was the photo of priest Truong Buu Diep with the faith in getting much money in the lobby of the hotel. But next to it, there was the altar for the god of the fortune. How ridiculous it is! I happened to remember the preaching of priest Truong Khac Huy explaining this type of worship “to run after 2 horses”. He said the fault did not base on who you worship but the fault is the unsolid faith in contrary to the teaching of the God. You can see, there are no words in Catholic bible writing that devotees should worship the God of fortune or the demons, but the Catholic followers who have done business do not follow the teaching of the God because of their wealthy purposes. How powerful the money is! I am proud of the disciples in Song Nguyen Tantra House who never worship who are not worthy of worshiping like The goddess of fortune, God of the soil, Guāngōng, Holy Mother of the Realm (Chúa Xứ) and the dragon king….it is the culture of spiritual slaves from China. Previously, I accidentally discovered that there was a coward disciple who “runs after 2 horses”, I immediately sent out the Song Nguyen Tantra House – Hanoi. Recently there has been another coward disciple who used the hammer of evil and wrong view for his own worldly purpose due to his deep secular relationship, he asked me to build a small Buddha statue on the peninsula in Ho Chi Minh City Children’s Hospital. I shouted at him and withdrew his account. From now on, all of the spiritual connection with the Guru was cut off even after his repentance. Because there are many disciples who have done such bad performance many times, their repentance is the type of “crocodile tears” only! They will betray Song Nguyen Tantra House for the sake of their wealth, fame, children…if they have to make decision. It is said that knowing the regulation but you still violate the rule, your fault is a hundred time worse than you violate without knowing. I am compassionate to ask them to go out of Song Nguyen Tantra House in order that they avoid from being born in the three low realms and from getting the bad consequences at present. Thanks to the blessings of the yidam, the guru, the Vajra Dharma Guard, the “hidden” disciples like Devadatta will gradually reveal themselves so that we do not have to be careful with them later.

Dear disciples,

Outdoor parties

Even though I changed the hotel twice, I found the right place after I visited three places around this city, but the good result was the blessings for us. Through the introduction of Mat Quang Loi, we have known Quy at the “Prince” Conference Center, we were fortunate enough to be seated in a luxury space with delicious food (see photo). I am happy with the good attitude and professional service of the management and staff here. I was also satisfied with the two picnics on the wide grass near the river, where the fresh winds were blowing from the river. Outdoor parties (see photo) which are probably made the first time in many years, are very majestic and impregnated with the blessings from the Three Jewels. Mat Lieu Tam from Song Nguyen Tantra House – Quang Ha told that: “I have never thought I could enjoy such beautiful parties”. It is true! In the worldly parties, there are the loud sound of 100% zo with the screams of alcohol. I hope the screams of alcohol becomes the heroic shout in the battle against the enemy!

picnics on the wide grass near the river

It can be said this time “Prince” welcomes us warmly and sincerely. It is easy to understand, we are Buddhists who are called “the Prince of the Universe”, of course, we must be respected from others. Whenever we “enjoy the life” here, people are impressed by your good appearances and leisurely gaits. The hostess of Phuong Tran hotel said: “Which conference do the attendants dress up so beautifully and solemnly?” Mat Tinh Nhu replied: “The conference for yoga of mind purification!” The restaurant staff asked Mat Vien: “Do you know the man who has made the good speech?” I feel funny because I have just talked a few sentences with the standard style, I have not made a joke like someone who always do during the preaching in the holy space, which made them surprised!? At Moc Mien café, Khue Minh was asked by the shopkeeper: “does he teach Buddhism, doesn’t he? Please help me to learn from him! “Khue Minh at once introduced her to read articles on

Dinner at Dharma festival

It is true! We seriously practice the Dharma, we will resonate with the pure energy which makes them respect us and take care of us. It is the result of yoga of mind purification through the method of Samayagdrsti-Prabha Samadhi. Those whose mind is immerged into the right view, of course, the power of love will be exposed under the rule of cause and effect. This is the occasion I have pointed out the achievement of Song Nguyen Tantra House when approaching all beings. I would like to affirm such spiritual achievement in order that we should express the gratitude to the enlightened ones who had taught us what we should renounce, what we should know and what we should practice.

The electric board guiding to the conference hall

We should remember the Buddha’s teachings that we should express the gratitude to who helps us and repay back in actions (sutra on the three types of people who are rare to meet), we held the Dharma fesival “the four debts of gratitude of Buddhism”  are (1) the debt of gratitude to be paid to the Guru (the Three Jewels); (2) the debt of gratitude to be paid to the nation; (3) the debt of gratitude to be paid to one’s father and mother; and (4) the debt of gratitude to be paid to to all living beings in Can Tho city. You have listened to my preaching and the talks from your Dharma friends who share with us about their spiritual experience. However, we do not only repay the four great debts in the Dharma festival, but also we pay the four debts of gratitude while practicing the guidance of Tantric practice, Nyingma lineage, Avalokitesvara division, Song Nguyen Trantra house because we pray for the everlasting country of  Vietnam and being free from disaster”.

The conference hall with high-quality facilities and luxurious and majestic space

taking photos together

I have looked at our cars parked on the parking lot of the “Prince” Conference Center, where many female disciples with beautiful long dresses are trying to take photos, I have looked around the conference hall with high-quality facilities and luxurious and majestic space; unconsciously I wanted to click on my hand to really identify whether it is the dream or the reality. No, it is not a dream, It is real! It is the miraculous power of  Vajra  from the dharma guardians who help us to understand the teaching: “Practicing the Dharma leads the success in both secular and spiritual life” and gives us “the temporary happiness in this life and ultimate bliss in next life”. I would like to end this article by quoting the comment from Mat Hong Nguyen who is the youngest disciple and the first time to take part in the Dharma festival in Song Nguyen Tantra House. He worte: “the Dharma festival was over but there still is full of joy in my heart and I always remember the wonderful atmospheres in the Dharma festival. I am happy to meet the Guru, your consort and other dharma friends from many places gathering in the beautiful city of Can Tho. Although I come back home, I still remember the wonderful scene there. The atmospheres in the Dharma festival is solemn but gives the attendants the different feelings of leisure. We are happy to listen to the Guru’s preaching and we have full of joy when enjoying the show with many beautiful songs led by your consort – Mat Dieu. The Dharma festival has the wonderful ending at the end of the day.

In addition, there is the wonderful and beautiful show of “traditional long dresses” of dharma friends from many provinces in the North and in the South. This is the first time I have attended the Dharma festival and admired so much beauty. Every dharma friends has their own beauty, which contributed to the success of the Dharma festival and made the festival more brilliant

The miraculous power of Vajra

I thank the Guru for allowing me to participate in the conference so that I can receive merit through this meeting.”

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

    I am Tantra Nirvadeva.

    I am delighted to read the beautiful descriptive narration of Dharma Festival which is meant for yoga of mind purification ! The selection of place for such conferences and avoiding irrelevant jokes in such Spiritual functions as contemplated  here is highly commended.

    Is ‘ worship’ is to be used or has any meaning in Buddhism ? If so whether to worship( any thing or any body) or not ?  Whom to worship? and whom not?  Worshiping Yidam and Dakini  is allowed?

    These are some crucial facts confusing my mind which require Clear clarification !

    The four debts of gratitude in Buddhism is really worth appreciated !

    “Practicing Dharma leads the success in both secular and Spiritual life and gives us the happiness and ultimate bliss” is the goal  of such Dharma Festivals !

    Om Mani Padme Hum.

    Long live our Guruji for upholding Dharma.

    Dr. C H Lakshminarayan.
