Thanh Tri – The 2nd Mind Dharma: SAMYAGDRSTI – PRABHA SAMADHI – Part 1: INTRODUCTION

Thanh Tri – The 2nd Mind Dharma: SAMYAGDRSTI – PRABHA SAMADHI – Part 1: INTRODUCTION

Part 1:  INTRODUCTION

Thanh Tri Master – Thinley Nguyen Thanh – Director of Thanh Tri Institute of Psychology Research and Yoga Applications

In the last comment, I did not accept the appellation of “Tantric Master” that Mat Hanh Giac named me, thus I have replaced it with a more appropriate title: “Thanh Tri Master”. This new appellation is accordant with the program that has been approved by the Vietnam Union of Science and Technology Associations (VUSTA). We are now officially recognized as the Thanh Tri Institute of Psychology Research and Yoga Applications with license from the Ministry of Science & Technology granted on March 16, 2018. In 2016, we became member of UNESCO, known as the UNESCO Club of Research and Application of Tibetan Yoga. This is the reason why you should call me “Thanh tri Master”.

So what does “Thanh Tri” mean? If written in capitalization, this word refers to the name of a science organization like our Song Nguyen Tantra House. If written in non-capital letters, it is a dialectical spiritual science based on the Buddha’s wisdom. “Thanh tri” should be perceived as the goal of this Yoga which aims at Pure Mind and Discernment (can be shortened as Pure Mind). In a recent response to Mat Hanh Giac’s comment, Mat Hai used the word “Discerning Mind” which is not complete. Now relying on the wisdom of Buddhist saints, particularly the Padmasambhava, I would clarify the true meaning of “Thanh tri” or “Pure Mind”.

Pure Mind means the mind that is free from eight worldly concerns: fame-disrepute, praise-blame, gain-loss, and pleasure-pain). Those who have not passed beyond these eight preoccupations are seen not to have pure mind. In non-Buddhist sects, followers are guided to do good deeds, avoid bad deeds to please God or Alla with a hope of a rebirth in celestial realms. Therefore, their mind remains impure though having good thoughts. For Buddhist practitioners, they also think and do good but their ultimate goal is to obtain Pure Mind, which is neither good nor bad. It is called the Mind of Bodhicitta.

So “Pure Mind” is skillful means to attain ultimate end of Buddhist practitioners in general and Pure Mind Yoga in particular. The word “Pure” in Sankrit is “Sangha”, both noun and adjective, which accordingly refers to Buddhist practitioners, both monk and layman. Therefore, the quality of a Buddhist practitioner should be examined based on his natural purity, which can be considered a dialectical spiritual criterion.

From those points on, I should be called “Thanh tri Master” or “Master of Pure Mind” because I’ve been leading you on the path of Pure Mind with the basis of Buddhist Dharma. After 25 years of research, survey, practice, application and acquirement of good results, relying on the wisdom of Buddhist saints, especially Guru Rinpoche, Avalokiteshvara and Dakini, I have invented six methods of spiritual practice (referred as “Six Wonderful Dharma Gates”), namely:

1/ Eight Dharmas of Taking Refuge in the Three Jewels (Eight methods of relying on the Buddha)

2/ Samyagdrsti-prabha Samadhi (method of spiritual practice on seeing-understanding in the light of Buddha’s wisdom so as to make means and wisdom indivisible)

3/ Uninterrupted Offering (method of spiritual practice on making offering uninterruptedly, not missing even one day)

4/ Lotus Walking Dharani (method of spiritual practice on reciting mantra following footsteps to accumulate spiritual power)

5/ Meditation on Bodhicitta (method of spiritual practice on meditation (both Samadhi and Vipassana) on Bodhicitta to cultivate pure mind)

6/ Five Degrees of Deity Yoga (a practice of simple visualization of fully enlightened being at the fifth degree, which prepares for next degrees).

In reference to the practice of body, speech and mind, they can be categorized as follows:

-Eight Dharmas of Taking Refuge in the Three Jewels and Uninterrupted Offering belong to the practice of Body

-Lotus Walking Dharani belongs to the practice of Speech

– Samyagdrsti-prabha Samadhi, Meditation on Bodhicitta and Five Degrees of Deity Yoga belong to the practice of Mind(wisdom).

These are my heartiest words, especially for a spiritual practice named Samyagdrsti-prabha Samadhi which I would present in detail in Part 2!

    Thanks for sharing this article.

    I feel very good after reading the explanation given for title ‘Thanh tri Master’. Also many thanks for inventing six methods of spiritual practice which would help all beings in attaining pure mind by practicing diligently. Your 25 years of practicing  Pure mind yoga wholeheartedly and diligently shows your happy and blessed life. May you spread this pure mind yoga across the world for benefit of other beings.

    May Guru and his Consort live long for benefit of others and get enlightened.

    May all beings be free from suffering and get enlightened.

    Om Mani Padme Hum.

      Kính bạch Thầy! 

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

      Con hoan hỷ được đọc luận giảng của Thầy về danh xưng Đạo sư Thanh Trí. Con cảm tạ ơn Thầy đã phát kiến lục diệu pháp môn giúp cho tất cả hữu tình đạt được tâm tịnh khi tinh tấn hành pháp. Sự lợi lạc của yoga Thanh Trí được minh chứng qua sự thân giáo của Thầy. Sau 25 năm tinh tấn thực hành yoga Thanh Trí,  y báo của Thầy rực rỡ với cuộc sống hạnh phúc,  thong dong tự tại đầy ơn phước. 

      Con cầu nguyện cho giáo pháp yoga Thanh Trí được lan tỏa khắp muôn nơi,  mang đến lợi lạc cho tất cả chúng sanh. 

      Con cầu nguyện Thầy Cô trụ thế lâu dài vì sự lợi lạc của tất cả chúng sanh. 

      Cầu nguyện tất cả chúng sang đoạn trừ khổ đau và đạt được giác ngộ.

  2. Dear holy Guru,

    I take delight in reading your new article on “Thanh Tri – the 2ndMind Dharma: SAMYAGDRSTI – PRABHA SAMADHI – Part 1: INTRODUCTION”. Through your teaching, I now know the true meaning of “Thanh tri Master”, of which “thanh tri” or “pure mind” refers to “pure mind and discernment”, a top goal that Thanh Tri Yoga heads to. This is a dialectical spiritual science relying on the basis of Buddha’s teachings (wisdom) that Guru would love to introduce everyone with all your heart.

    I also understand that “Pure mind” indicates a state of mind that is free from eight worldly concerns which is the ultimate goal of Buddhist practitioners (i.e not good, not bad, but it’s the mind of Bodhicitta). Hence, the quality of a practitioner should be assessed or examined through his natural purity.

    Besides, just like the definition of Yoga which is the unity of body, speech and mind, your six spiritual inventions (Six Wonderful Dharma Gates) are skillful means (upaya) that help the practitioner to combine his actions of body, speech and mind flexibly, of which: Eight Dharmas of Taking Refuge in the Three Jewels and Uninterrupted Offering belong to the practice of Body; Lotus Walking Dharani belongs to the practice of Speech; Samyagdrsti-prabha Samadhi, Meditation on Bodhicitta and Five Degrees of Deity Yoga belong to the practice of Mind(wisdom).

    Thank you for your reasoning that helps us gain more knowledge of the holy appellation “Thanh tri Master” and “Thanh tri Yoga” (Pure Mind Yoga) so that we could learn and act rightly, particularly further treasure your compassion for us. My heartfelt gratitude to you for this beneficial Dharma sermon.

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

    May all sentient beings drink the Dharma nectar and be surrounded by blessings of the Three Jewels

    Om Ah Hum

  7. Dear holy Guru,

    Thank you so much for writing Thanh Tri – The 2nd Mind Dharma: SAMYAGDRSTI – PRABHA SAMADHI – Part 1: INTRODUCTION. I have learnt your new appellation of Thanh Tri master who guides us on the path of pure mind to be free from the suffering in samsara.

    I am happy with your new title. I am so proud of being one of your disciples when I understand clearly about the true meaning of “Thanh Tri”. It means Pure Mind and Discernment (pure mind and transcendental wisdom).  After 25 years of research, survey, practice, application and acquirement of good results, you have invented six methods of spiritual practice in accordance with the modern time of 4.0 technology when everything is connected together by a single click.

    I am so blessed and fortunate to learn from you with your six methods of spiritual practice in this busy time. If I could not meet you in this life,  I am sure that I did not  have a chance to understand the Buddha’s teachings,  let alone having any opportunities to practice dharma daily by reading and comments on chanhtuduy.com to purify the mind and get wisdom for the inner happiness,  success in life and social achievements this life as well as the rebirth in the Pure Land.

    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. Her translation will support to spread the fragrance of virtue every direction to benefit all sentient beings.

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

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

    Om Mani Padme Hum.

    Dear Holy Guru,

    I’m Mat Hong Quang and I am so happy to read this article which is translated by Mat Hue Phap. This is also a valuable chance for me to read again and understand more what I’ve read in Vietnamese version. 

    My sincere thanks go to Guru, the ‘Thanh Tri Master’. After reading, I understand why we should call you ‘Thanh Tri Master’ instead of ‘ Tantric Master’. As the meaning of ‘Thanh tri’ in English (pure mind), you have invented the priceless methods of Dharma practice and have been guiding us to get pure mind and get free from sufferings. 

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

    I rejoice the good deeds of Mat Hue Phap for translating the article into English. May she be joyful on the path to pure mind.

    Dear Guru,

    My name is Tantra Sagovana.

    Thank you for sharing this article.

    In this article you explain that Guru should be addressed with the appellation ‘Thanh tri Master’.

    You explain the meaning of ‘Thanh Tri’ which in non-capital letters means the dialectical spiritual science based on the Buddha’s wisdom.

    Thanh tri is the goal of the Yoga practiced by Song Nguyen Tantra House members which is Pure Mind and Discernment.

    Pure Mind means a mind free of the eight worldly concerns/eight worldly winds. Pure Mind is called the Mind of Bodhicitta.

    You explain that the quality of a Buddhist practitioner should be examined based on his natural purity.

    Also you explain that you have invented six methods of spiritual practice,

    The second method of spiritual practice is Samyagdrsti-Prabha Samadhi, to practice seeing-understanding in light of Buddha’s wisdom, which is reading and commenting on articles on Vimalakirti room chanhtuduy.com. It belongs to the practice of Mind (wisdom).

    May all sentient beings be healthy and well and be free from suffering.

    May Guru be healthy and live long for the benefit of all beings.

    Om Mani Padme Hum.

  16. Mật Giác Đăng says:
    Dear Guru,

    I have read this article. I am delighted to learn through your explanation meanings of the word “Pure Mind” and the appellation “Thanh Tri Master” or “Master of Pure Mind”.

    I understand that “thanh tri” is a dialectical spiritual science based on the Buddha’s wisdom which aims to Pure Mind and Discernment (can be shortened as Pure Mind). Pure Mind is the state of mind which is free from eight worldly concerns (flame-disrepute, praise-blame, gain-loss, and pleasure-pain). It is called the mind of Bodhicitta (not good deeds nor bad deeds). Pure Mind is a skillful mean to attain ultimate end of not only Pure Mind Yoga in particular, but also Buddhist practitioners in general. Therefore, I understand that, with word “pure” means “Sangha” in Sankrit regardless monk or layman, the natural purity should be considered a dialectical spiritual criterion to examine the quality of a Buddhist practitioner.

    At Song Nguyen Tantra House – now are officially recognized as the Thanh Tri Institute of Psychology Research and Yoga Application, you are the “Thanh Tri Master”, or “Master of Pure Mind”. Because you are the person who has spent more than 25 years for researching, surveying, practicing, applying and acquiring the good results to invent Six Wonderful Dharma Gates help practitioners combine flexibly in actions of body, speech and mind. With this marvelous treasure, you has been leading us on the path of Pure Mind to pursue Pure Mind and Discernment for this happy current life and the next life in Western Pure Land.

    Thank you so much, Guru, for this beneficial article. May Guru and your consort have good health and live long for the sake of all sentient beings.

    Thank you, vajra brother Mat Hue Phap for your smooth translation. May you achieve your legitimate wishes.

    May the covid-19 pandemic will be soon eliminated.

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

    I bow my head down for you !

    Thank you so much for sharing this article with us. Such as a fabulous article. actually I wish I could learn the six methods of spiritual practice one day but certainly “under your supervision”. And honestly I’m not surprised that you became a “thanh tri master” since I really believe that you deserve more than that and for us “your disciples” you’re everything for us. And we’re nothing without you.

    May you have good health and live long for the benefit of all sentient beings.

    Dear H.H. Thanh tri Master

    Today, I got the answer of my question regarding eight worldly conditions or winds from your article. After reading your article, I have searched in Pali canon. I found Lokavipatti Sutta (AN 8.6) which describe about the  eight worldly conditions. These are:

    Lābho alābho ayaso yaso ca
    Nindā pasaṃsā ca sukhaṃ ca dukkhaṃ,
    Ete aniccā manujesu dhammā
    Asassatā viparīnāmadhammā. (Pali language)

    Meaning: Gain, loss, status, disgrace, censure, praise, pleasure, & pain. These are the eight worldly conditions that spin after the world, and the world spins after these eight worldly conditions.

    Now, I am also the part of your Six Wonderful Dharma Gates (Six methods of spiritual practice, GURU. Gradually, all questions will be answered through your articles.

    Dear Guru

    I take delight in reading your first part of the series on “Thanh Tri – The 2nd mind dharma: Samyadgrsti-prabha samadhi”. For the very first time, I understand the meaning of the appellation: “Thanh Tri Master”, of which “Thanh tri” is defined as “Pure Mind and Discernment”. Pure mind and discernment are the goal of this Yoga which scientifically performs on the basis of Buddha’s wisdom.

    I would keep in mind that: “Pure mind means the mind that is free from eight worldly concerns. It is the ultimate goal of Buddhist practitioners (i.e. neither good nor bad but is the mind of Bodhicitta). Therefore, a true Buddhist practitioner cannot be recognized through his look but his natural purity which is considered as a dialectical spiritual criterion.

    My gratefulness to you for giving us a profound reasoning on the noble appellation of “Thanh Tri Master” and Thanh Tri Yoga, based on which we can understand and act righteously. Thank you for this beneficial dharma sermon.

    Dear Holy Guru

    I’m glad to read the article. I understand that pure mind is the mind free from eight worldly concerns. Buddhist practitioners’ thoughts and activities are to obtain pure mind, not like non- Buddhist sects in which disciples are guilded to do good deeds and avoid bad deeds with the aim to make pleasure to their God and so they will come to their God on the heaven after their death. All of those are only rebirths in samsara. At Tantra House, we have been practising spiritual methods invented by respected Guru, help us to gain pure mind partly and totally.

    I’m grateful for your teaching.

    May you and your consort good health, long life for benefit of all beings.

    May covid 19 is eliminated soon.

    Om Mani Padme Hum.

  26. Mật Chánh Tấn says:
    Dear Guru,

    I would like to express my gratitude for letting me read such an important article. This helps me to understand more the meaning of Pure Mind. 

    As you have mentioned in this article, Pure Mind refers to a state of mind, which is free from eight worldly concerns (fame-disrepute; praise-blame; gain-loss; pleasure-pain). And as a Buddhist practitioner, I should set to obtain Pure Mind, which is neither good nor bad (the Mind of Bodhicitta) as my ultimate goal. Also, I understand that the “Six Wonderful Dharma Gates”, which the Guru has invented, would help me to take steady steps on the path to obtain Pure Mind gradually from partial parts to totality. Because by practicing Pure Mind Yoga, I would have a chance to practice and combine my body, speech and mind activities according to the right orbit round the correct doctrine of the Buddha. Thank you Guru for your teaching and guideline.

    May Guru and his consort live long for the sake of other sentient beings.

    May the epidemic of Covid-19 come to end soon.

    May all sentient beings be free from suffering and get enlightened.

    Om Mani Padme Hum!
