Letter from the USA: WHERE’S THE FORTUNE FROM? ( May mắn đến từ đâu?)

I wake up very early in the morning after a sound sleep last night. The gentle shines outside seems to dance very happily across the leaves. I happens to smile and look at the notice I have received. It says that I am going to acquire my new apartment in Mckeesport, PA (United States) on the 1st of September.

My apartment at 1100 Oneil Blvd, McKeesport, PA 15132

It is a small and humble studio unit and it is something I am sure I can grow to cherish and set it up very nice. I will sure love to be able to light incense and play quiet peaceful music and rest as much as needed, all while being able to make my favorite food in peace when I so desire to eat.

Inside my apartment

It is a happy surprise when I can get this apartment. I am tired with the long days of homelessness and hunger. I try my best to survive in cold and hot days. I never forget the day when I suffered from the bitter cold in winter or the time when I found nowhere to sleep. I have experienced many places; in the part, near the station or along the street. I felt clearly the suffering in the samsara there and here. We, living beings, are trapped in the cycle of existence known as samsara. In samsara, we wander aimlessly and experience unbearable suffering—day and night, year after year, life after life. We always find nowhere to shelter and live aimlessly but the attachment to the ego, self-center and ignorance. In Anamataggasaṃyutta sutra, the Buddha said that “the stream of tears that we have shed as we roamed and wandered through this long course, weeping and wailing because of being united with the disagreeable and separated from the agreeable—this alone is more than the water in the four great oceans.”

It is a happy surprise when I can get this apartment

I am excited to move in the apartment because I have had a place to live from now on. No longer do I wander days and nights. For those who live in a luxurious house, It is difficult for them to understand about my present happiness. They can see the cement buildings with the impermanent things, at no time do they experience the pure bliss of Dharma, the permanent shelter for all true Buddhist practitioner. I have learnt clearly that my present apartment is the blessing from Guru and Buddha. I have lived at the safest house – Song Nguyen Tantra House. It is the best refuge for us. This place is built by neither cement nor any material things. This everlasting shelter is made by the Bodhicitta and compassion of Guru. In the book “Excellent Path to Enlightenment” by H.H. Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche, he wrote “all accomplishments are due to the Guru’s blessings. We are not referring here to minor accomplishments like obtaining good health, long life, or wealth; but to the supreme realization of the Guru’s enlightenment nature, which is none other than our own Buddha-nature.”

 

I have learnt clearly that my present apartment is the blessing from Guru and Buddha. I have lived at the safest house – Song Nguyen Tantra House. It is the best refuge for us.

 

I am very grateful for all your blessings, time and energy that you have placed into me or for my situation, as it has been difficult at times, and far too easy at others but there has always been a flow to it all. I don’t need to think long and hard about your blessings and compassion as it’s still fresh in my memory because I always think of you and remember your words every single day and when I am in trouble. Sometimes, in the line between birth and death, I always see your image, see Guru Rinpoche; your calm and warmness give me strength to wake up and move forwards. I can feel your pure energy coming to me when I make fervently prayers to Guru and obviously, for as Guru Rinpoche said: “I am present in front of anyone who has faith in Guru, Just as the moon casts its reflection, effortlessly, in any vessel filled with water.”

I thank you for your constant love, dedication, and protection of devotees and your Sangha

I thank you for your constant love, dedication, and protection of devotees and your Sangha.  If things did not flow for me I do not know what I would do as I have been very sick at times where food did not even interest me and I vomited a lot due to Nausea and digestive issues. This is a great blessing to have acquired the apartment. I eventually acknowledge the connection between devotion and blessings as the teaching of  H.H. Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche, it goes: “When an enlightened master who has wisdom and compassion meets a disciple who has faith and diligence, it is as if the sun’s rays where suddenly concentrated through a magnifying glass and focused onto dry grass, causing it to burst into flames, at once. In the same way, the blessings we receive will correspond directly to the intensity of our devotion.”

May Guru have good health and live long for the sake of all sentient beings.

May all beings practice fervently Guru devotion for the achievements in life.

May all beings end their sufferings and its causes.

May Covid 19 end soon.

  1. Cao Diệu Nhất Nguyên says:

    Dear Tantra Tanshami,

    I’m deeply touched by your sharing. I am very (very) happy to hear that you are moving to a new studio apartment this September, after many days of wandering. It must be a big relief to finally feel safe and at home. I pray that all your rightful wishes will continue to be fulfilled.

    I have learned the answer for your question in the title of the article, “Where is the fortune from?” It has been stated in H.H. Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche’s teaching: “all accomplishments are due to the Guru’s blessings. We are not referring here to minor accomplishments like obtaining good health, long life, or wealth; but to the supreme realization of the Guru’s enlightenment nature, which is none other than our own Buddha-nature.” In that same way, the apartment to you is beyond cement or any material things, it is built by the everlasting Bodhicitta and compassion of Guru.

    Dear Tantra Tanshami,

    Thank you for reminding me about the safe shelter of the Guru and the three Jewels I’m currently living in. I’m sure we all have been wanderers in this long, dark, never-ending journey through Samsara until the Guru showed us the light at the end of the tunnel. I pray that the suffering of all sentient beings will be pacified and all sentient beings will attain the happiness of Buddha’s nature.

    May the Covid-19 pandemic will soon be over.

    Om Mani Padme Hum.

        Dear Tantra Tanshami,

        I can relate to your story some how. And I had exactly this feeling of thankfulness when I got my absolutely first own apartment at age 29.
        And today, I am still so thankful for everything.

        Thank you so much for your share to remind me. I ale need a reminding.

        It is so easy for us human beings to be greedy because of blindness. It is so necessary to be thankful for what we already have infront of our eyes and not be greedy after something we only have in our fantasy. Fantasy is just an imaginations. In front of our eyes is the reality.

        May you always be blessed.

        Om Mani Padme Hum.

  4. Cao Diệu Mật Từ says:

    Dear Tantra Tanshami,
    I am so touched by your sharing, and so happy for what you have been awarded by your faith in Guru, the Buddha, Dharma, Sangha, and your diligent practice. From your story, once again, I learned the lesson of the real treasures that one Buddhist practitioner can earn in this life is not any material things such as job, house, money, etc. but the faith, contemplation, morality, modesty, self-respect, respect for others, and wisdom. Sometimes I have seen people who are considered themselves as growing faith in the Buddha’s teachings and the Guru, but they kept asking for the result to come. Then they started to blame on everything except themselves. You had experienced those cold days in hunger when you did not have any shelter to stay, but you still kept navigating your mind toward Guru’s teachings, you imagined Guru in times of difficulties, you encouraged yourself by the strength of Guru’s teachings. Even those days may look pitiful to other people who are not Buddhists, you have been accumulating the “seven treasure of the noble ones” that cannot be exchanged by any amount of money in this samsara world. I really admire how you extract meaningful excerpts from Buddhist teachings and books as well, which also reflects the effectiveness of Guru’s teaching methods no matter where we are in the world. Thank you for sharing the story, which reminds me to treasure the shelter that I have. May all your legitimate wishes come true.
    May all sentient beings attain the Buddha’s nature happiness.
    Om mani padme hum.

    I am happy knowing you’re now in a haven where you can be comfortable and safe now, brother. Indeed, being in touch with the words of the holy guru will certainly locate you into such a place where you will be whelmed. You’ve been in a journey wherein situations let you highly appreciate the gift that you have now. Nevertheless, what you’ve gone through was a part of your wholeness as an existing being in this realm if a lifetime. Continue to hold on to the Dharma, brother. Inspire others…

    May all of us be safe and have a well health.
    May all beings be free from harm and fear.

    Dear Tantra Tanshami,
    I’m joyful about your fantastic achievement. In my opinion, your tremendous change from homelessness to the one going to acquire a new apartment is still not compared to the transformation in your mind. I’m delighted with your sharing about your gratefulness towards Guru and the Buddha, together with the timing, meaningful quotes from the Buddha and the Holy Buddhist sages. Your writing has spread Guru devotion to me, reminding me that all the fortune that I’m experiencing in this life is due to Guru’s blessings. And the most significant fortune that Guru bestows us is the desire for supreme liberation and the method (Six spiritual methods invented by Guru) to get there.
    Thank you for your sharing.
    May Guru have good health and longevity for the benefit of all sentient beings.

    I am glad to hear that dhrama Tantra Tanshami has had his own house to protect him from rain and sun after a long day of wandering. Moreover, it is no happier than staying in the sublime land – Song Nguyen Tantra house that all splendid houses and magnificent castles in the heavens may not be compared. Choosing to come in this house was a great decision, and it is the decision that shaped our life. I am also aware of that, it is the devotion that brings us into the land of peace and purity. Thank you Guru for compassionately welcoming us – wandering children back to that wonderful house.
    May Tantra Tanshami achieve all his righteous wishes.

    Dear Tantra Tanshami,

    I am really delighted by your good news. Congratulations on getting the apartment that you’ve always wanted. Your sharing in this article is so touching. I can easily feel your gratitude and devotion to the Guru in each word and sentence.

    As you have shared, each of us born in this samsara world is tired and hungry because of our ignorance, selfishness, and attachment to the ego. Only when each of us takes refuge in the Guru, Buddha, Dharma, and Sangha, then we can finally find true happiness.

    Your story can be seen as a living example to Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche’s teaching: “All accomplishments are due to the Guru’s blessings. We are not referring here to minor accomplishments like obtaining good health, long life, or wealth; but to the supreme realization of the Guru’s enlightenment nature, which is none other than our own Buddha-nature.” (in the book “Excellent Path to Enlightenment”).

    The Guru, Buddha, Dharma, and Sangha are like solid pillars that help each of us have a place to avoid the toxins of ignorance in life, from the destruction caused by the eight worldly winds. And it is all thanks to the Guru devotion that can be seen as the strong glue to makes those pillars stronger and stronger, help us feel safe and sound in the blessings from the Guru and Buddha.

    Thank you Tantra Tanshami for your meaningful article.

    May holy Guru have good health and live long for the sake of all sentient beings.

    May Tantra Tanshami get joyful and successful on the path to enlightenment.

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

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

    Dear Holy Guru
    I am delighted to read Letter from USA: “Where’s fortune from” by Tantra Tanshami.
    Dear Tantra Tanshami
    I am so glad when you escaped homelessness with an apartment is the blessings from Guru and Buddha, where you can comfortably “light incense and play quiet music and rest as much as needed, all while being able to make my favorite food in peace when I so desire to eat”. And how wonderful it is that you, me and many vajra brothers are all able to stay in Song Nguyen Tantra House, the safest house, the most solid refuge made by the Bodhicitta and compassion of Guru.
    While the darkness of once poverty, disease, and despair is covering the Saha world, the Guru is the sole source of all blessings, fortune, happiness, as Geshe Potowa taught: “Guru is someone who feeds sentient beings in times of famished, while the Buddhas are those who feed sentient beings in times of prosperity. Supposing we are no longer suffering from poverty, we have gained some properties, but there is still someone who gives us food and more properties. Likewise, we are going to see the light of many Buddhas, we are inspired by them, etc., when we are at a high level of our path to the enlightenment. However, the Buddhas cannot help us with anything when we are in such sadness and pathetic situation in our current lives”.
    Thank you for sharing this article. May all your legitimate wishes come true.
    May Guru have good health and live long for the sake of all sentient beings.

    I am so happy to hear that, from now on his life will be better, he will have his own apartment, he will have a peaceful place to grow the cherish, play music, rest and making food,… he no longer live a homelessness and hunger. I am touched with Tantra Tanshami’s gratitude and respect to the Guru. Thanks to the Guru’s compassion and bodhicitta, we still have a peaceful and leisurely life while many people in the world are suffering from Covid pandamic. The image of the apartment of Tantra Tanshami makes me think of the pure shelter that the Guru and the Three Jewels give us, who grow faith in the Guru, the Buddha, Dharma and Sangha.
    Thank you for Tantra Tanshami’s sharing, may your all wishes come true.
    May the Guru have good health and live long for the sake of all sentient beings.
    May all sentient beings attain the happiness of Buddha’s nature.
    May Covid-19 pandemic end soon.
    Om Mani Padme Hum.

    thank you dear Dharma Brother for sharing your emotional and profound experiences and welcome to your new home .. I live like you in the western world and found the way to the Dharma and our holy Guru and the Sangha in a life crisis. Often times we have such nonsensical questions in the western world as we can find happiness or what makes our life different. Is it the pursuit of wealth? Or how can we feel more fulfilled. For me there were the sincere righteous answers in the Dharma. with all of his wise articles, our holy guru taught me to see important aspects in life. And the Dharma made me and my life so much richer. I learned to be more mindful and that meditations bring me inner peace. Our holy guru, who with devotion and compassion through his articles and wise words reminded us again and again that we have to work on ourselves daily to walk the path of enlightenment. I am also grateful for all of his wise articles that helped me understand that all we need is within ourselves. Life is not about material wealth or status. Our health and compassion for all sentient beings are our greatest asset that we must protect. Sometimes I wish my hands could express what my heart is feeling. The gratitude for helping us learn to live the Dharma and practice on a daily basis. In my greatest need, the Dharma was and is help, salvation and refuge. To understand what the Buddha teaches and how important it is to stimulate us positively with love, devotion and compassion. May your path be full of peace and knowledge. May our holy Guru life long for the sake of all sentient being.May all beings achieve the Happiness of Buddhas nature 🙏🙏🙏OM MANI PADME HUM

    I bow my head at the lotus feet of Guru.
    This letter apraises the showering of fortune to those who have untinted and
    Firm faith in Guru and Buddha!
    The writer, when he gets an apartment needed after a long suffering feels such an astonishing joy similar to the joy of a blind man when gets suddenly eyes and vision and he attributes it none other than showering of fortune by the grace of Guru and Buddha whom he has taken shelter and has unconditional faith and devotion in them.I remember the english proverb in this context that God helps those who helps themselves .!

      I like your inference from his case with the blind man who gets to see light. That’s how all of the sentient beings see the light of the Buddha and his teachings!

    Tantra Tanshami, many thanks for your share. While I am familiar with plight, each circumstance is individual, so I can confer and concur, while I am able to relate: I cannot equate. I am satisfactorily impressed by your gratefulness. I do not live so luxuriously, but can not also understand the joy and happiness you must feel, as it is your own, and I can never fill your shoes. Walk many moons I do, but only ever with my two soles. I am thankful for this window into your happiness. Everything is transitive, even the still house. To not be so attached is very Buddhist like, but hopefully your situation rests as still for the time being. I am enthralled with delight for your blessing.

    Guru, may your wisdom inspire and keep growing with which to fertilize our hungry minds. You are a fount of inspiration and graceful guiding words. Sharing this story of Tantra Tanshami has made me thoroughly happy. I love all the articles you post, and never have I been left with a taste of sourness. Sometimes I feel as if I should try harder, so I do, instead of taking your words personally. Looking forward to reading more of these letters from others, and increasing my learning.

    To the world, may the blessing of enlightenment via the Buddhist-mind flower for all. May any predicament that humanity faces be peacefully and gracefully resolved with patient haste, a pure panacea.

    Om mani padme hum

    I appreciate all the kind comments and I am glad my situation has inspired you and increased your devotion to the Holy Guru. This is the greatest treasure we have and if you only have one thing that you cling to in this illusory world it should be the security of Devotion to Guru Buddha.

    Greetings from the Philippines! 🙂

    This is good news, Tantra Tanshami.
    May all people have a safe home.
    May all people give each other compassion and work together to end homelessness, hunger, and disease.
