  1. There is a stupid way of liking or disliking things and a smart one, the one with wisdom... and wisdom in Buddhism implies realizing things have no inherent nature. Things appear pleasurable or unpleasurable to us by the force of our past karma. Let's say we meet a person who is doing an unpleasant thing to us. This person is not bad by its own nature and the argument is that there is always another person who thinks he or she is good (in most of the cases his or her mother). By having the natural reaction to pay back his badness we will surely meet this person again...and there really are bad people... but our goal is not this...... We want to get rid of all the unpleasant things in our life, isn't it?...so being kind with him or her is how we surely get rid of this person the same with pleasurable things.... as soon as you receive a thing that makes you happy, quikly give it to others...this way you will receive more of this thing in the future....enlightened self interest

  4. As great master Milarepa said: No way my loved ones know I'm glad, No way my enemies know I'm sad; If I can die here in this cave My hermit's wishes have come true. No way my friends know I've got old, No way my sister knows I'm sick; If I can die here in this cave My hermit's wishes have come true. No way that people know I've died, No rotting corpse that vultures spy; If I can die here in this cave My hermit's wishes have come true. Flies will suck my meat and bones, Maggots eat tendons, ligament; If I can die here in this cave My hermit's wishes have come true. No footprints leading from my door, No bloodstains left here on the floor; If I can die here in this cave My hermit's wishes have come true. No one to hold a deathbed vigil, No one to weep when I am gone; If I can die here in this cave My hermit's wishes have come true. No one to wonder where I went No one who knows where I am found; If I can die here in this cave My hermit's wishes have come true. May this death prayer of a beggar In the wild of a mountain cave Come to help all living beings; Then my wishes have come true. best wishes, micu
  5. does anybody can say about what happens the next day after realizing emptiness directly?
  6. when percieving emptiness...there is a division between subject and object, but you just can't be aware of it? two totally diffrent natures... they disappear both (the awareness of you and the awareness of the emptiness that you are seeing directly)? :?:
  7. does this mean that the object and the subject become one?
  8. can you explain this term? what non-duality really means(with respect to the division between subject and object)?
  9. hi, i am studying the Diamond Cutter Sutra right now. do you know any commentary? it is said that after finishing the study of this Sutra, the one who read it will experience a difficult period. why is that so? thank you, micu
  10. Tashi Delek, Videos: http://worldbridges.com/Tibet/video/index.html Audio Teachings: http://www.tsling.com/ra_library.html Prayers and Chants: http://members.tripod.com/tsling0/prayers....ml#anchor407877 I hope that these can be used for our benefit and for the benefits of all sentient beings.

  11. Tashi Delek, The following all refer to the same thing: natural nirvana, the natural Mother, the natural perfection of wisdom, the natural Dharma Body, and ultimate truth. The definition of nirvana with something left over is: "A cessation which comes from the individual analysis, and which consists of having eliminated the mental-affliction obstacles in their entirety, but where one still has the suffering heaps that are a result of his past actions and bad thoughts." A classical example of this would be the nirvana found in the mental stream of a listener who is a foe destroyer, and who has not yet shucked off the heaps he took on. The definition of nirvana with nothing left over is: "A cessation which comes from the individual analysis, and which consists of having eliminated the mental-affliction obstacles in their entirety, and where one is free of the sufferings heaps that are a result of his past actions and bad thoughts." A classical example of this would be the nirvana found in the mental stream of a listener who is a foe destroyer, and who has shucked off the heaps he took on. The definition of nirvana which does not stay is: "A cessation which comes from the individual analysis, and which consists of having eliminated both kind of obstacles in their entirety." A classical example of this would be the truth of cessation in the mental stream of a realized being who is a Buddha. From the Presentation on Nirvana found in the Analysis of the Perfection of Wisdom, by Kedrup Tenpa Dargye (1493-1568). Micu
  12. Tashi Delek, It is all said in the Texts. One of these texts (the one below) can lead you to Buddhahood, if you proper understand it. Though it is short it contains the very core of Buddhism, but it can take many years of sacred learning. Here is the text: The complete root text of the "Three Principal Paths" (Lam-stzo rnam-gsum) by Je Tsongkapa (1357-1419) ,the very learned Buddhist monk, the glorious Lobsang Drakpa. "1.I bow to all the high and holy lamas. 2.As far as I am able I'll explain The essence of all high teachings of the Victors, The path that all their holy sons commend, The entry point for the fortunate seeking freedom. 3.Listen with a pure mind, fortunate ones Who have no craving for the pleasures of life, And who, to make leisure and fortunate meaningful, strive To turn their minds to the path which pleases the Victors. 4.There's no way to end, without pure renunciation, This striving for pleasant results in the ocean of life. It's because of their hankering life as well that beings Are fettered, so seek renunciation first. 5.Leisure and fortune are hard to find, life's not long; Think it constantly, stop desire for this life. Think over and over how deeds and their fruit never fail, And the cycle's suffering: stop desire for the future. 6.When you've meditated thus and feel not even A moment's wish for the goods things of cyclic life, And when you begin to think both night and day Of achieving freedom, you've found renunciation. 7.Renunciation though, can never bring The total bliss of matchless Buddhahood Unless it's bound by the purest wish; and so, The wise seek the high wish for enlightenment. 8.They're swept along on four fierce river currents, Chained up tight in past deeds, hard to undo, Stuffed in a steel cage of grasping "self", Smothered in the pitch-black ignorance. In a limitless round they're born, and in their births Are tortured by three sufferings without a break ; Think how your mothers feel, think of what's happening To them: try to develop this highest wish. 9.You may master renunciation and the wish, But unless you have the wisdom perceiving reality You cannot cut the root of cyclic life. Make efforts in ways than to perceive interdependence. 10.A person's entered the path that pleases the Buddhas When for all objects, in the cycle or beyond, He sees that cause and effect can never fail, And when for him they lose all solid appearance. 11.You've yet to realize the thought of the Able As long as two ideas seem to you disparate: The appearance of things - infallible interdependence; And emptiness - beyond taking any position. 12.At some point they no longer alternate, come together; Just seeing that interdependence never fails Brings realization that destroys how you hold to objects, And then your analysis with view is complete. 13.In addition, the appearance prevents the existence extreme; Emptiness that of non-existence, and if You see how emptiness shows in cause and effect You'll never be stolen off by extreme views. 14.When you've grasped as well as I the essential points Of each of the three principal paths explained, Then go into isolation, my son, make mighty Efforts, and quickly win your ultimate wish." Five Principles of Sacred Learning 1.With proper study and training, any normal person can attain nirvana and enlightenment in their lifetime; old age and death are not inevitable. 2.Spiritual knowledge belongs to humanity, and should be given free. 3.Both men and women, and people of all backgrounds and financial means, must have equal access to spiritual knowledge. 4.It is our responsibility to devote our efforts and the time of our lives to learn and preserve authentic spiritual knowledge, and assure that it will still be here for the next generation. 5.Different spiritual traditions should be kept accurate and pure, with the recognition that each person's choice of their spiritual path must strictly be respected. Peace and happiness, Micu
