    A Prayer

    May we clear our perception and cease the conception any especially most convincing one... May only the Dance of both Truths survive...

  3. Dear Sincerity, this is really nice how and what you expressed. Thank you Pamo
  4. Mingyur Rinpoche writes, "I'd like to say that everything got better once I was safely settled among the other participants in the three-year retreat.... On the contrary, however, my first year in retreat was one of the worst in my life. All the symptoms of anxiety I'd ever experienced--physical tension, tightness in the throat, dizziness, and waves of panic--attacked in full force. In Western terms, I was having a nervous breakdown. In hindsight, I can say that what I was actually going through was what I like to call a 'nervous breakthrough'." May we all soon breakthrough and reach Enlightenment for the benefit of all! May these Teachings we have received from our Teachers come fully alive, now!
  5. Good evening, raistlin, i clicked reply only for a short message of "thank you", for this sincere story of, anyhow, courague. With my best wishes.
  6. »The Free World« by Ajahn Brahm For several weeks, one of my fellow monks had been teaching meditation in a new maximum- security prison close to Perth. The small group of prisoners had come to know and respect the monk well. At the end of one session, they began to ask him about his routine in a Buddhist monastrey. »We have to get up at 4:00 a.m. every morning,« he began. »Sometimes it is very cold because our small rooms don't ahve heaters. We eat only one meal a day, all mixed together in the one bowl. In the afternoon and at night we can eat nothing at all. There is no sex or alcohol, of course. Nor do we have television, ardio or music. We never watch movies, nor can we play sports. We talk little, work hard, and spend our free time sitting cross-legged watching our breath. We sleep on the floor.« The inmates were stunned at the spartan austerity of our monastic life. It made their high-security prison seem like a five-star hotel in comparison. In fact, one of the prisoners was so moved with sympathy for the plight of their monk friend that he forgot where he was and said: » That's terrible living in your monastery. Why don't you come and stay here with us?« The monk told me that everyone in the room cracked up with laughter. So did I when he related the incident. Then i began to contemplate it deeply. It is true that my monastary is far more ascetic that the severest of prisons for the society's felons, yet many come to stay of their free will, and are happy there. Whereas many want to escape from well-appointed prison and are unhappy there. Why? It is because, in my monastery, the inmates want to be tehre; in a prison, the inamtes don't want to be there. That is the difference. Any place you don't want to be, no matter how comfortable, is a prison for you. This is the real meaning of the word »prison«. If you are in a job where you don't want to be, you are in a prison. If you are in a relationship where you don't want to be, you are in a prison. If you are in a sick and painful body where you don't want to be, then that too is a prison for you. A prison is any situation where you don't want to be. So how do you escape from many prisons of life? Easy. Just change your perception of your situation into »wanting to be there«. Even in San Quentin, or the next best thing – my monastery – when you want to be there, then it is no longer a prison for you. By changing your perception of your job, relationship, or sick body, and by accepting the situation rather than not wanting it, then it no longer feels like a prison. When you are content to be here, then you are free. Freedom is being content to be where you are. Prison is wanting to be somewhere else. The Free World is the world experienced by one who is content. The real freedom is freedom from desire, never freedom of desire.

    Courage

    Courage, that’s my name.. I stand alone..ready for life. I am no longer afraid. I am hopeful. I can do anything. Because I have courage. Why? Because I have become a warrior.. a wisdom warrior. I stand alone.. Like the sword of wisdom. I will not give up the ground of compassion. I am not afraid to proclaim this. That’s the warriors cry. .. I will not give up my way of love, even if I am the last person on earth. I will not give up give in to hate. I will be courageous about loving all beings. I’ll be kind to myself and merciful to others. That’s the warrior’s code. Tall trees sway...sound of cars... sound moves across the sky... Courage has allowed me to see all these. With this fearless energy I can do anything. Nothing will blow my path. If obstacles arise, courage gives me the humor, skill and delight, to go around, over or through. With courage even the biggest mountains cannot stop me. Aggression can be overcome. Courage gives me the power to love without embracement or fear. Courage… that’s my name. Mipham Rinpoche
  11. A challenge for a Dharma practitioner, from the scripta on the lecture on the psychology of personality: "A personality is a relatively permanent and unique totality of mental, behavioural, and physical characteristics of an individual. A structure of personality is: temper, character, capacities, physical constitution; a human as a bio-psycho-social unity."

  13. Sincerity What do we do when we feel lonely? we say we are not? What do we do when we feel worthless? we say we are not? How about opening all windows and doors to the freshness of wind from the ocean! laying flat on the floor ballroom observing - our home.. Guests, it's long after time now. It's NOT been a pleasure..but fine. Though, leave now, leave leave, cause no one heart any more bleed.. Denial Denial - torturer of the proud. And the already a little less proud. What with can I feed you tonight?! I'll give you a lot So you stay behind... Loosing such member I would not mind. Jonathan Seagull found new friend after only few loops yet not on the (same) ground... (Needed) Explosion for Softness Walls walls walls walls walls concrete walls all around sound (of distortion) WIRE OF FIRE! !!PA!! Now, do you see (me)?
  14. To a friend May there be faith in Love in this world... May there be this kind of breaking free! One on the very big, and one of the eye to eye: you and me! May there be! (faith in Love for you and me...) For a little moment forget about chocolates and rain they'll come again… Just for a moment to see. Sink free and feel a warmth of The Palm on your knee. In this moment stay that only i am asking you. Be breath into the truth of reality. Embrace and acknowledge your drum telling you stories persistently until all the rest becomes numb. Go on, go on. Have Faith in that number of yours…Three. In Love between You and Me.
  15. Dear Rinpoche, and how about vegan diet, in general, but especially for children? Thank You. Pamo

  18. by Hakuin (1686-1768) The monkey is reaching For the moon in the water. Until death overtakes him He'll never give up. If he'd let go the branch and Disappear in the deep pool, The whole world would shine With dazzling pureness.
  19. all three by Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche Fortunate Rebirth In the kingdom of children Every one of you is this child, An innocent being Who jumped out of heaven And landed in Shambhala. Fortunate birth is who you are- Everything is perfect in your world. Your clothing is the mist of heaven, Your feet covered by dragon’s breath, You are the most fortunate beings on earth. You are the children of dharma. Nothing can close your open heart. Other children suffer, caught in perpetual dilemma- Because Buddha has touched you, You are fortunate. Be dharmic now, Be powerful now, Be benevolent now- Not for me, not for others- But because that is your blood. When you feel privileged, use it. When you feel ashamed, pounce. Consume that hesitation- It’s only a flicker of your imagination. You are the blessed people on this earth. Every atom of your being is Buddha- What’s left is joy. You have no excuse; Don’t sulk. You can be sad, for sadness is the most genuine expression. Expression of goodness is who you are. Being a child of dharma is dilemma. Being a child of dharma is freedom. Consume this hesitation of not knowing. Never doubt, Only walk forward. Love everything, For that is why you are here. Night in Kalpa This time it happened‹ Caught in a thunderstorm, Spun and twirled, Dizzy, Happy, I was caught off guard. This whirlwind took my heart. I needed everything to fall apart Like feathers from a pillow Tossed high into the sky. Everything comes falling down, Gliding on a breeze caught in its own time‹ Energy that can't be measured. Comet shoots across my existence. This wonderful force does not know where it will go. I need things to fall apart, I want things to fall apart. All through time, all through the day I have held on and held on tight. Now everything falls apart. The sun and the moon know how to fall apart. Spring knows how to be summer Autumn leaves know how to fall down. Can I be like the seasons And know that falling apart Is the movement of time, The movement of life? I have not given up, I have simply woken up. This wild burst of energy Wants to twirl and spin, It wants mayhem. I am mayhem‹ Claustrophobia self-liberated, Hesitation with a friend called fathomlessness. I am that smile that shines across the sky. If you look up, you will see me And fall apart. Blue Dot Within my mind I live on a small blue planet. Everyone seems far away, No one seems close. Everywhere is blackness, Yet abundant life consumes each moment. I wish and hope Everyone could see this blue fragile life Floating in the blackness Next time they miss the bus, Next time they forget to look and smile. We are floating on a blue dot- We should all be frightfully concerned. No matter what you think, what I think, We will always be on this blue dot, Unless we are the masters of darkness Or the emperors of blackness. Look at each other- Be kind Stop Look up See blue. That color came from somewhere. It could be another color if we don’t play our cards right. Our worst enemies we should hold, Because even they love blue.
  20. Not even a six years old boy asks his mom to allow his teacher in the kindergarten to give him bed after lunch, for being very tired. But the mom says, "no, no sleeping anymore; he's going to school in autumn".
  21. Inspiration Inspiration, stay! So fire from the sword can change their way.. stay stay stay stay stay I pray.. ..stay..
  22. Yes, no comment. But only one I would have. It is that I am deeply worried when I see a situation like this. For example, a grown up is offering a candy to a child on the street if he/(sometimes also she) would like to attract his/her attention, to later on only abuse him/her. Here, who is the so called yogi, who is supposed to be a grown up, addressing?! I am not calling anybody anything, but speak out my concern, because the public attracted by the mixed-up soup message on this site would be one who is still in the domain of emotions and child-like attachments and yearnings, for their decisions. Please, let's be careful who we trust our mind! With my best intentions for everyone, Pamo
