Guru Rinpoche, The Great Medicine Healing Manifestation - Orgyen Menla

Guru Rinpoche emanates as Orgyen Menla , who appears as a Medicine Buddha. Medicine Buddha especially vowed to eliminate pain and sufferings and diseases from the minds, bodies of all living beings, so He is reserved as the Buddha of Medicine or called the Master of Healing.

Medicine Buddha made twelve vows, that after He achieved Buddha hood, the prayer of all sentient beings would be answered and those who called on Him would be of perfect health and be able to free from diseases, overcome obstacles and to achieve the ultimate goals and inner happiness.
Orgyen Menla is  the Healing master is Guru Padmasambhava appearing in the aspect of Bhaishajyaguru (Medicine Buddha).Therefore, the practice of Orgyen Menla combines the blessings of Guru Rinpoche and Medicine Buddha to accomplish the healing of body, mind and emotions. 
As Guru Rinpoche has prohesied that in the dark age of degeneration, 3/4 of the world will be emptied by black epidemics. In the 7th century, Guru Rinpoche prophesied that many epidemics like the SARs and bird flu etc will occur and right now we are affected by H1N1 , Ebola or related infections. 

We never know what kind of new diseases will come next. Hence to save from all these kind of diseases that will come next and to save from all these kind of disease and misery we should have devoted to Guru Rinpoche Padmasambhava or his great manifestation of Orgyen Menla   (Guru Rinpoche Medicine Buddha) with confidence that can help and save us as Guru Rinpoche who is the protector to the helpless beings
The practice of Orgyen Menla is particularly effective for pacifying epidemics, other sicknesses, suffering and negative influences. It is also beneficial for longevity and wisdom. The destructive forces of the imbalance of four elements are overcome by accomplishing Ogyen Menla. This is possible because Medicine Buddha (Healing Buddha) is no different from Guru, and Guru is no different from the primordial purity and perfection of one's own awareness. 

All internal, external and secret obstacles and diseases are the results of one's own confused state of existence. Praying, meditating and reciting the mantra of Orgyen Menla not only cure diseases and suffering at a relative level, but also lead to the realization of ultimate wisdom. Thus we can completely go beyond suffering.

Orgyen Menla as a meditational-deity is revealed only in the later termas (later revelations) and this makes it all the more effective and powerful in practice. 

Thank you for reading, may you find peace and great bliss. With your support it helps to spread the Buddha’s precious teachings and turning the Dharma wheels in the world.

Aspiration For Bodhichitta
For those in whom the precious Bodhichitta has not arisen
May it arise and not decrease
But increase further and further.

By this merit may we obtain omniscience then.
Having defeated the enemies wrong-doings.
May we liberate migrators from the ocean of existence.

The Art of Happiness - By His Holiness The 14th Dalai Lama

Description

Blending common sense and modern psychiatry, The Art of Happiness in a Troubled World applies Buddhist tradition to twenty-first-century struggles in a relevant way. The result is a wise approach to dealing with human problems that is both optimistic and realistic, even in the most challenging times.

How can we expect to find happiness and meaning in our lives when the modern world seems such an unhappy place? 

His Holiness the Dalai Lama has suffered enormously throughout his life, yet he always seems to be smiling and serene. How does he do it? In The Art of Happiness in a Troubled World, Dr. Cutler walks readers through the Dalai Lama's philosophy on how to achieve peace of mind and come to terms with life's inherent suffering. 

Together, the two examine the roots of many of the problems facing the world and show us how we can approach these calamities in a way that alleviates suffering, and helps us along in our personal quests to be happy. Through stories, meditations, and in-depth conversations, the Dalai Lama teaches readers to identify the cultural influences and ways of thinking that lead to personal unhappiness, making sense of the hardships we face personally, as well as the afflictions suffered by others.
Nearly every time you see him, he's laughing, or at least smiling. And he makes everyone else around him feel like smiling. He's the Dalai Lama, the spiritual and temporal leader of Tibet, a Nobel Prize winner, and a hugely sought-after speaker and statesman. Why is he so popular? Even after spending only a few minutes in his presence you can't help feeling happier.

If you ask him if he's happy, even though he's suffered the loss of his country, the Dalai Lama will give you an unconditional yes. What's more, he'll tell you that happiness is the purpose of life, and that the very motion of our life is toward happiness. How to get there has always been the question. He's tried to answer it before, but he's never had the help of a psychiatrist to get the message across in a context we can easily understand.
The Art of Happiness is the book that started the genre of happiness books, and it remains the cornerstone of the field of positive psychology.

Through conversations, stories, and meditations, the Dalai Lama shows us how to defeat day-to-day anxiety, insecurity, anger, and discouragement. His Holiness explores many facets of everyday life, including relationships, loss, and the pursuit of wealth, to illustrate how to ride through life's obstacles on a deep and abiding source of inner peace. 

Based on 2,500 years of Buddhist meditations mixed with a healthy dose of common sense, The Art of Happiness is a book that crosses the boundaries of traditions to help readers with difficulties common to all human beings. After being in print for ten years, this book has touched countless lives and uplifted spirits around the world.

Guru Rinpoche, manifested into a single form which is the present practice of generosity as indicated by the mongoose on the left hand of spitting out the jewels, in his right hand the supreme wish-granting jewels and under his left arm a victory banner held spending aloft.

Guru Dzambhala or Lama Orgyen Norlha blessings increase the energy of prosperity. It removes the sufferings of poverty. It relieves one's mind and allows practitioners to practice dharma without worries. 
The Orgyen Norlha practice is especially effective for capturing, restoring and increasing the energy of 'yang' or wealth.

As the world is now may lead into an economic crisis and hardship, the need to strengthen yang and restore lost yang is greater than ever. In this practice, the principal deity is Lama Khandro Orgyen Norlha, aka Orgyen Khandro Norlha, or Guru Dzambhala, who is Guru Rinpoche manifesting as the divine god of wealth surrounded by the assembly of wealth gods and goddesses. Guru Dzambhala, the Guru of all Dzambhala, is the embodiment of the perfect generosity of all buddhas and bodhisattvas in the past, present and future.

Origin of Guru Dzambhala or Lama Orgyen Norlha
During one winter time, when Guru Rinpoche traveled and visited Tibet, the entire people were suffering from poverty. Thrisong Detsen, the King of Tibet, out of compassion requested Guru Rinpoche to do something that could help his people. 
Guru Rinpoche miraculously, manifested himself into Lama Orgyen Norlha and did Ugyen Norlha’s puja and blessed the whole land. Thereafter the region has never experienced poverty life; People enjoyed and had better living. Before Guru Rinpoche left Tibet, he had hidden the Lama Orgeyn Khandro Norlha Yabyum the union one and Lama Orgyen Norlha's practice text (scripts) in a secret place directing Dakinis and Protector to safeguard it, until Terton (Treasure Revealer)

Live with compassion
Work with compassion 
Die with compassion 
Meditate with compassion 
Enjoy with compassion 
When problems come, 
Experience them with compassion.
A praise of compassion by H.E Lama Zopa Rinpoche.

Compassion is wanting sentient beings to be free from suffering. So compassion is the definition of the highest scope of motivation.It is said that to generate genuine compassion, one needs to realise that oneself is suffering, that an end to suffering is possible, and that other beings similarly want to be free from suffering.
The Nilakantha Dharani also known as Maha Karuna Dharani. Popularly known as the Great Compassion Mantra in English,  大悲咒 in Chinese. It was spoken by the Bodhisattva Avalokitesvara before an assembly of Buddhas, Bodhisattvas, Devas and Kings, Nagas according to the Mahakarunikacitta Sutra. It is often used for protection or purification.

The Great Compassion Mantra is from Mahakaruna Dharani Sutra of the Thousand-armed and Thousand-eyed Avalokitesvaraya. It is an important mantra of this almighty Bodhisattva. It is believed that recitation of the Great Compassion Mantra can purify our bad karma and help us reach the Pure Land. With constant recitation of this mantra, one can reap ten great benefits and harvest fifteen kinds of good birth, while staying away from the fifteen kinds of bad deaths. Moreover, this mantra has the unbelievable power to fulfill every wish and cure 840,000 diseases.
Thousand-armed and Thousand eyed form of Avalokitesvara, which is an important esoteric Buddhism form of Avalokitesvara. The legend of how he received a thousand arms and eyes even represents his compassion for others.  Vowing to help those in need whenever he hears their cries and sees their sorrows, because of this he is sometimes depicted with over a thousand arms and eyes. 


The Great Compassion Mantra is an extremely powerful spell because it contains not only the sacred name of Avalokiteshvara, but also the various embodiments, wisdom, capacities and merits of this Bodhisattva and other enlightened beings. When this mantra is recited, you are connected to Buddhahood through your voice. You do not have to understand the content of this mantra; reciting the Sanskrit version alone will create remarkable merit.
Before recitation, we must possess the determination to follow the example of Avalokiteshvara of One Thousand Arms and One Thousand Eyes. "Thousand" has the connotation of boundlessness; keeping Avalokiteshvara's boundless compassion in mind, we must make a wish to see the suffering of all sentient beings with his one thousand eyes, and to release them from their pain with his one thousand hands.

If we fully dedicate ourselves to Avalokiteshvara's path by cultivating altruistic aspirations, practicing equanimity, and vowing to become enlightened for the benefit of all beings, His twenty-eight Dharma Protectors will safeguard us in our spiritual journey; together with other Bodhisattvas and deities, they will shield us from any harm and peril with their magic powers. 
Recite the mantra with great faith as many as possible, when we are lonely or in the darkest moments of our life , let not give up our hopes and faiths and may the astonishing light of the Great Compassion Mantra and the blessing and wisdom of the enlightened Buddhas and Bodhisattvas be with us whenever and wherever we are.

The Living Journal - Giving is simply the best

The poor one ask, why am I so poor ?
The Buddha said, you do not learn to give,
The poor one said, If I am not having anything ?
The Buddha said, you have a few things:-
Your face,  which can give a smile,
Your mouth, which can praise or comfort others,
Your heart, which can open up to others,
Your eyes,  which can look the other with the eyes of goodness,
Your body,  which can be used to help others.
Quotes by the Buddha.

"The seeds of kindness and compassion that you have planted today, It will bloom in the hearts of those that you have touched forever"

Helping othersare not only good and is a good thing to do, it also makes us happier and healthier too. Giving it's not all about money - we can also give our time, ideas and energy. So if you want to feel good, do good. 
Doing things for others - whether small, unplanned acts or regular volunteering, it is a powerful way to boost our own happiness as well of those around us.  Giving isn't just about money, so you don't need to be rich. Giving to others can be as simple as a single kind word, smile or a thoughtful gesture. It can include giving time, care, skills, thought or attention. Sometimes these mean as much, if not more, than financial gifts.

It's extremely sad and ironic that while some people feast, there are some dying out of starvation. Many are having the tendency to think that that it's okay if there's an excess, there just shouldn't be a shortage of food for my family and friends. 
We need discipline in our everyday lives to bring a change. We should learn to cook, to eat only what required. Excess food should be distributed  to the needy. Not wasting food should be a habit inculcated in children. 

A simple act of good deed, Good deeds make you feel good, Many people are self-centered that you may think "Why would I ever want to do a good deed for them?" I don't even get a smile or words of thank you from them.
Many people, even if they don't get any appreciation back, they will still feel good about the act. You will still be putting good energy into the universe - and that can only benefit you in the long run. 

Thank you for reading, may you find peace and great bliss. With your support it helps to spread the Buddha’s precious teachings and turning the Dharma wheels in the world.

The Living Journal – Let us be free

If you want to walk fast, you may walk alone,  
Walking alone is not hard, but walking with someone, then coming back alone is difficult. So if you want to walk a distant, we walk together. 

When people choose to walk out of your life, let them go. Your destiny is not meant to the one that leaves you. Sometime it’s better to walk alone than with a wrong crowd and with a wrong direction. 
Do not judge someone’s path if you have not walked their journey. Stop letting people that do a little thing for you, and controlling so much of your mind, feelings and emotions. Yes, other people may be there to help us, teach us, guide us along our path, but the lesson to be learned is always ours.  

Happiness is a journey and not a destination. Take the right steps and with a little persistent, little more efforts. To us what seemed to be a hopeless failure, may well turn to a glorious success, so remember if you want to predict your life, the better way is to create it. 

No matter what sort of problems you experience, instead getting nervous and fearful, sit back, relax and be as silent as possible. In this way you will be able to see reality and understand the root of the problems. 
Now close your eyes, for a while and take a close look at whatever you consider your biggest problem to be. Shot down your senses perception as much as possible, remain completely silent and with meditative wisdom thoughts, investigate your mind. 

Where do you hold the ideas of “your problem” It is in your brain? Your stomach? Your heart? Where is that idea of problem? If you cannot find it, do not intellectualize, just relax. If miserable thoughts or bad ideas arise, just watch how they come and how they go. 

Do not react emotionally, By practicing this way, you can see how the weak, unskillful cannot face problems, but your silent mind of skillful wisdom face any problem bravely, conquer it and control all your emotional and agitated state of mind.   

Thank you for reading, may you find peace and great bliss. With your support it helps to spread the Buddha’s precious teachings and turning the Dharma wheels in the world.

The Living Journal - The Savioress

Refuge and Bodhichitta to the Arya Taras ( 3 times)
Namo kon chok kun ngo jet sun mar,
Dag sog dro kun kyap su chi,
Jang chup mon pei sim kye neh,
Zap moy lam la juk par gyl.

Om Jet Sun Mar, Phagma dromala chhag-tshal lo 
(Om Homage to the Venerable Arya Tara)
Om Tare Tutare Ture Soha,
Om Tare Tutare Ture Soha,
Om Tare Tutare Ture Soha

Green Tara she said; you people who see a hundred dangers, Don't be frightened-I shall swiftly save you.

H.E Lama Zopa Rinpoche has once said, if we recite the Twenty-one Taras’ prayer once every evening, it is impossible one will or to die of starvation.
Green Tara is iconographically depicted in a posture of ease and readiness for action. While her left leg is folded in the contemplative position, her right leg is outstretched, ready to spring into action. 

Green Tara's left hand is in the refuge-granting mudra (gesture); her right hand makes the boon-granting gesture. In her hands she also holds closed blue lotuses (utpalas), which symbolize purity and power. She is adorned with the rich jewels of a bodhisattva.

In Buddhist religious practice, Green Tara's primary role is savioress. She is believed to help her followers overcome dangers, fears and anxieties, and she is especially worshipped for her ability to overcome the most difficult of situations. Green Tara is intensely compassionate and acts quickly to help those who call upon her.
On a lotus seat, standing for realization of voidness, (You are) the emerald-colored, one-faced, two-armed Lady In youth's full bloom, right leg out, left drawn in, Showing the union of wisdom and art - homage to you! Like the outstretched branch of the heavenly turquoise tree, Your supple right hand makes the boon- granting gesture, Inviting the wise to a feast of supreme accomplishments, As if to an entertainment-homage to you! 

Your left hand gives us refuge, showing the Three Jewels; It says, "You people who see a hundred dangers, Don't be frightened-I shall swiftly save you!" Homage to you! Both hands signal with blue utpala flowers, "Samsaric beings! Cling not to worldly pleasures. Enter the great city of liberation!" Flower-goads prodding us to effort-homage to you!
