Letter to Disciples No.275: NEW FLOWERS, SAME OLD FRAGRANCE

Dear disciples!

There are only a few days left before the end of 2018 and the new year 2019 is rolling in. Apart from 108 articles having been announced lately, Song Nguyen Tantra House sees the fantastic bloom of 126 new Dharma flowers in the last three months. They are new but keep the same old scents which last forever and remain unchanged. They are the scent of precept, concentration, wisdom, liberation and knowledge of liberation. These Dharma flowers are displayed solemnly in the Vimilarkirti castle among which eight (08) have grown up, just like a person whose talent and ethics (or habit and character) are formed by means of commenting on chanhtuduy.com.

My warm congratulation to eight readers who have obtained noble Yoga names (Dharma names) which are one of valuable means of mind protection both in this life and during the bardo. Those who are granted with Yoga names should send your personal details to email: [email protected] requesting a log-in account. Now you become my follower and are allowed to make contribution to the website maintenance fund (http://www.chanhtuduy.com). This is a practice of offering that Samantabhadra Bodhisattva had stated in the third of his ten great vows.

May all sentient beings achieve the happiness of Buddha’s nature. Om Mani Padme Hum!

A rainy afternoon on the peak of Phu Van Mountain

      Kính bạch Thầy tâm linh tôn quý!

      Con chân thành cảm tạ ơn Thầy đã ban cho con Yoga name (Pháp danh). Con xin hứa con sẽ luôn luôn thực hành pháp dù bất kỳ điều gì xảy ra. Con luôn bội phục và tôn kính  Thầy.

  2. Dr C H Lakshminarayan says:
    Respected Guruji I bow my head at your lotus feet.

    Buddha is my life

    Dharma is my boat

    Nibbana is my other shore

    Guru is my guide

    Sangha is my strength

    I congratulate all those my Dharma brothers/ sisters  who are fortunate to get their Dharma name which is not an easy event! I said they are fortunate because ,it is almost similar to getting ‘  deeksha’ (initiation) from  our Buddha-like venerable

    Guruji which is a sacred event from the moment of getting Dharma name one has to indulge Only in Dharma practices with out deviation and walk on the path  of Enlightenment guided by Guruji and to do :

    Good thing in all the time

    In all the possible ways

    In all the  capacity you can

    In  all loving kindness and

    compassion

    For all sentient beings.!

    Thank Guruji who is breathing  Bodhicitta during inhalation and exhalation and guiding his disciples who come to his refuge

    Seeking peace of mind.!

    Om Mani Padme Hum

    Dr C H Lakshminarayan

    ( Nirvadeva )

     

    • Dear Dr C H Lakshaminarayan,

      I am so glad with your comment which is full of respecting to our holy Guru. However As Guru’s taught, Dharma name is the confirmation to the wish to walk on the path of Enlightenment. But only when the learner get Refuge and become disciple, then the disciple is allowed to practice Dharma and walk on the path of Enlightenment by Guru’s leading.

      May Guru have good health and live long for all sentient’sakes.

      Om Mani Padme Hum!

  4. Reverend Guru,

    I’ve read this article. Together with 128 Dharma flowers, bloom another 126 fragrant ones that are placed at a solemn place in the Vimalakirti castle. Old flowers or new flowers, both keep the scents that last forever and remain unchanged because they are the scents of precept, concentration, wisdom, liberation and knowledge of liberation. I warmly welcome eight new readers who are granted with Yoga name which is one of useful means of mind protection both in this life and in the bardo. I am glad to know that Guru has given them another means of merit accumulation by contributing to the website maintenance fund. This is also a practice of offering which belongs to the third among ten great vows of Samantabhadra Bodhisattva. May new followers always treasure their yoga name by keeping reading and commenting on the site for these will help them accumulate merit and wisdom as means to reach the city of Liberation.

    With my whole heart, I pray for the longevity of Guru and your consort for the long-term propagation of Pure Mind Yoga for the sake of all sentient beings.

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

    Om Ah Hum

  5. Abrar Bhatti says:
    My Dear Guru Ji

    I am so happy for you and grateful to you for accepting me as your disciple and granting me Yoga Name, that means to me. It gives me understanding and responsibility to protect it, non- regression, being mindful, fallow the precepts and to develop in wisdom. And transmit this old fragrance to new flowers.

    On Mani Padme Hum,

    Tantra Rahlahu

    • Kính bạch Thầy! 

      Con xin phép được dịch comment của đạo hữu Tantra Rahlahu (Abrar Bhatti) sang tiếng Việt như sau:

      Kính bạch Thầy tôn quý! 

      Con vô cùng hoan hỷ và cảm tạ ơn Thầy đã nhận con là học trò và ban cho con Yoga name (Pháp danh).  Điều này vô cùng có ý nghĩa với con. Con hiểu rằng con có trách nhiệm giữ gìn,  trân quý Pháp danh để không bị mất Pháp danh bằng cách giữ chánh niệm,  tuân theo giới luật,  tinh tấn học để phát triển trí tuệ và lan tỏa hương cũ này đến những bông hoa mới khác. 

      Om Mani Padme Hum. 

      Con – Tantra Rahlahu. 

       

  6. Dear holy Guru,

    I have read your article: “letter to disciples No. 275: new flowers, same old fragrance”. I am so happy with 126 new dharma flowers in the dharma garden of chanhtuduy.com in the last three months.

    I am delighted with your article and highly appreciate your wisdom and compassion to bestow Yoga names upon learners who diligently read and comments on chanhtuduy.com. I am also happy to congratulate the 8 learners who are bestowed Yoga names this time.

    I have learnt that Yoga name is the means to get successful in this life and obtain the spiritual achievements for the rebirth in the Pure Land next life. Yoga name is also the way to connect closer with the Guru’s pure mind. It is the key to open the liberate castle. Therefore we need to treasure and keep it longer by reading and comment diligently with the Guru devotion.

    Thank you so much for yout noble efforts to guide us on the path of liberation.

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

    I rejoice in the good deeds of Mat Hue Phap who translated your article into English so that many foreign readers can read and understand your teachings. In addition, they have a good opportunity to access the dharma and your six marverllous practices for inner happiness, success in life and social achievements this life and for long-lasting bliss next life.

    May Mat Hue Phap get all her righteous wishes and get joyful on the path of enlightenment.

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

    Om Mani Padme Hum.

     

  7. Dear Holy Guru!

    I deeply rejoice to read your letter No.275: “New flowers, same old fragrance”. I joyfully praise the virtue, wisdom, and Bodhicitta of the Holy Guru who teaching Pure Mind Yoga. I would like to express my gratitude for your teaching. I would like to send my congratulation to Dharma friends who have Yoga names, a great reward for their efforts and diligence in Dharma learning. I also rejoice in Mat Hue Phap’s good deed of translation. Her translation supports to flourish your discourse all over the world for the sake of all sentient beings.

    May you and your consort live long for the sake of all sentient beings.

    May Mat Hue Phap have good health and make progress on the path to enlightenment

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

    Om Mani Padme Hum!
