Saga Dawa Festival of Vaishakha Day - May 29, 2018

What is Saga Dawa / Festival of Vaishakha's Day ?
Vaishakha Day is a major Buddhist holiday which commemorates three major events in the life of the historic Shakyamuni Buddha: his birth, enlightenment, and pairinirvana. 

Saga Dawa / Vesak Day or Sangye & Nyangde Duchen Day on May 29, 2018 is the 15th (full moon) day of the fourth lunar month. It’s known as the anniversary of Buddha Shakyamuni’s Enlightenment and Mahaparinirvana.  At the age of thirty-five Buddha attained enlightenment at Bodhgaya. This day also marks the anniversary of his parinirvana at Kushinagara. 

Saga Dawa / Vesak Day or Sangye & Nyangde Duchen Day, It’s one of the most sacred day for all Buddhists. The effects of all positive and negative actions are multiplied by  10,000,000 times!
The Saga Dawa Festival worships the life of Buddha and coincides with three crucial events in his life: birth, nirvana, and death. In Tibetan  "Saga" means "fourth” and "Dawa" means “month,” which is why the festival is celebrated through the whole 4th Tibetan month and is believed to be one of the most significant religious occasions solemnized in Tibet which casts aside all barriers of color, religion, or nationality. 

Within the framework of their tradition, Buddha, while dying, told one of his followers not to honour him merely with lights, flowers, and incense after his death, but by aiming to follow his teachings about being compassionate and kind and living a big-hearted life. That's why during the celebration, many people give out alms to the pleading and refrain from killing animals.
During this festival, a large number of pilgrims come to Lhasa to visit the monasteries and take part in the ritual walk around the Lingkhor path. A late afternoon picnic in the Dzongyab Lukhang Park is another excellent way to be connected during Saga Dawa, these outings to the foot of the Potala is a yearly ritual for Tibetan people. 
Celebrations are held all over Tibet, but one of the greatest and most famous can be found at Tarboche at the foot of Mt. Kailash. If you want to visit this sacred place, you might need a special permit.

Pilgrims come early in the morning and gather around the huge ceremonial flagpole with hundreds of colorful prayer flags attached to it. Before the ceremony starts, a group of lamas has come closer to the flagpole and play woodwind instruments. When the music begins, pilgrims begin to walk around the prayer flags. 

As soon as the 25m high flagpoles are raised, followers start to throw the Highland barley powder on themselves, which is believed to bring luck.
Thousands of pilgrims start to throw colorful prayers into the air. They are believed to be carried by the wind to heaven. When the ritual is finished, part of the followers make 13 circles around the flagpole and pray, and the other part starts their "kora," which is a sacred trek around Mt. Kailash.

The Epic of King Gesar Ling

Dear friends 
When a raindrop falls into a still pond, It dissolves inseparably in its own nature, And nothing has occurred. But when the same raindrop falls into the same pond, Ripples shine and dance on the water's skin. From these two ways of seeing one thing come the true magic that raises and destroys kingdoms, That increases joy or misery, brilliance or degradation - The Famous Poetic by -The King Gesar

Every now and then a spiritual or secular giant of unimaginable power appears on the world stage to bring order and harmony. About eight centuries ago, a glorious, miraculous man of amazing power took birth among the nomadic community of eastern Tibet. He conquered many parts of that land and brought to its peace and harmony, he was the King Gesar of Ling.
The Epic of King Gesar Ling 
The legend of King Gesar has been circulating among Tibetans for over 1000 years. Little is known in the West during the early days of the Internet. It is the longest epic in the world. 

Stories of King Gesar were primarily passed down in oral form, but even the existing written copies, which are estimated to comprise only 10% of the epic, number 246 volumes – containing over 1.5 million lines. 

King Gesar represents the principle of warrior ship – not in the sense of war skills, but in the sense of realizing the power, dignity and wakefulness that are inherent in all of us as human beings. The confident warrior conducts himself or herself with a gentle, fearless, and open-hearted intelligence in all aspects of life.
Ancient Warrior
Warrior ship here refers to realizing the power, dignity and wakefulness that are inherent in all of us as human beings. It is awakening our basic human confidence which allows us to cheer up, develop a sense of vision and succeed in what we are doing.” In this context, the meaning of warrior ship transcends any idea or expression of aggression.

King Gesar raised hundreds of thousands of warrior men and women under the leadership of his legendary warrior commanders: the Seven Men of Supreme Warrior hood, the Thirty Warrior Brothers, the Eighty Champion Warriors, and the Eighteen Supreme Ladies. 
Among them the most famous commanders were :
1. Gyatsa Zhalkar, 
2. Tsazhang Denma Changtra, 
3. Shenpa Meru, 
4. Amye Nangchung Yutag, 
5. Palha Michang Karpo, 
6. Dralha Tsegyal, 
7. Atag Lhamo,
8. Jangtrug Yulha Thogyur.
The Manifestation of Guru Rinpoche
King Gesar was a manifestation of Guru Rinpoche. His chief commanders were also believed to be enlightened, appearing solely to serve the world. 

King Gesar constantly received teachings and prophesies from Guru Rinpoche, many divinities and Dakinis in pure visions, as from person to person. He also received teachings and transmissions from the great sage Amye Changchup Drekhol of the Lang clan and others.

Enlightened beings appear in the forms, sounds and actions of wrathful manifestations and expressions. These wrathful manifestations and actions do not come out of anger, attachment and grasping at “self” nor in order to harm or cause suffering to anyone. 

They come out of love and compassion, and they are powerful manifestations that destroy and eliminate the negative forces, the very sources of suffering.
The miraculous departure of the King Gesar Ling
At the age of eighty-eight, Gesar summoned Tsazhing Denma, the only old warrior commander who was still alive, and the warrior princesses of the young generation with his beloved Ling subjects to Sengdrug Tagtse, his main palace in Ma valley. 

After giving Dharma teachings, he declared that the time of his final departure had arrived. Then the next day, many saw him flying away through the sky sitting on a shawl of light held up by four Dakinis, and then he disappeared. Others saw him dissolving into a rainbow-body, leaving the clothes that he was wearing but no mortal body behind.
The Prophecy of the coming of King Gesar 
According to Mipham Rinpoche and some others great masters, King Gesar will reincarnate as Rudrachakrin, the 25th Rigden King of Shambhala or The Shangri-la. 

The prophecy of the reincarnation of the Rudrachakrin, the 25th Rigden King of Shambhala or The Shangri-la is being prohecies that in the year 2424 A. D. Rudrachakrin will conquer the dark forces and inaugurate the dawn of a new golden age of peace and joy on earth.

Shangri-La was best known in the west as a mystical hidden and invisible paradise supposedly in the Tibet. It is also said that in the Year 2424 A. D. Rudrachakrin will conquer the dark forces and inaugurate the dawn of a new golden age of peace and joy on earth.
For ordinary Tibetans, those King Gesar epics remained a powerful source of inspiration to Dharma, awakening inner courage in their hearts and knowledge of the greatness of their past.

If a person is spreading happiness through charity, good work, being kind and sympathetic toward others, it means he/she is sowing the seeds of happiness that will produce the fruits of happiness in present of future”.

Our life is nothing else but it is just like an agricultural soil; if we want better crop from this soil than we must sow the good seeds in it; because quality and quantity of the crop is completely depends upon the quality and quantity of seeds we have sown.

Law of the Karma stipulates
• The consequences are always depends upon the action.
• Our present always makes or helps to make our future.
• We are the only person in this world; responsible for the effects of our actions.

But many a times it happens; If we do good towards others, even if it doesn’t yield the proper result immediately; it does not mean it has gone in vain; we can certainly expect goodness out of it in the future.

It’s never too late to turn it all around. Be honest with yourself and others. When you are kind to others, it not only changes you, it changes the world. Forgive those who have harmed you consciously and intentionally.

Forgiveness does not change the past, but at least it can shape the future. We have to change. We are doing what make us happy. After all, we are responsible for our own happiness because we owe it to ourselves.

New Year Aspirations - Confession

Medicine Buddha’s Confession Prayers
DIK TUNG KUN SHAK GE WA JANG CHUB NGO
NE DON DUK NGELDREL WAY TRASHI SHOK
JIK TEN PA NAM RANG NE BENZA MU
YE SHE DAM TSHIK LHA NAM DAK LA THIM
KA DAKKUN ZANG LONG DU. E MA HO.

English translation - Medicine Buddha’s Confession Prayers
I confess all wrong and downfalls and dedicate all virtue to awakening.
May there be the most auspicious of freedom from sickness, harmful spirits and suffering.
The worldly ones return to their own places, BENZA MU.
The Jnana and Samaya Sattvas dissolve into me.
I dissolve into the expanse of all goodness, primordial purity. E MA HO.
Purifying negativity is a basic theme of Buddhist philosophy and practice. According to the teachings of Shakyamuni, the historical Buddha of our era, each being has a mind, the basic nature of which is purity, goodness, compassion and wisdom. This basic nature, often called “Buddha Nature,” is the basis for the experience of perfect compassion and wisdom called enlightenment.

But while all beings possess this “seed of awakening, it is often obscured by negativity such as; conflicting, emotions, habitual tendencies, and the belief in a solid, permanent and 
unchanging “self ” and environment. 
These obscurations lead us to commit negative actions, which (according to the Buddha’s teachings on karma) bear fruit as the suffering of cyclic existence (called “Samsara.”). To uncover our basic nature and to stop accumulating negative karma, the Buddha taught that we should:

1. Do away with negative actions;
2. Practice virtuous actions; and
3. Tame the mind (through meditation).

On a daily basis, Buddhists strive to become more aware of their thoughts and actions and to see how those thoughts and actions shape their experience and their world. They also strive to stop performing negative actions and to purify negative actions they have already done, while at the same time strengthening positive actions, and expanding the positive actions they already are performing. 

By doing this, they eliminate negative karma (and its attendant suffering) and increase positive karma (and its attendant happiness). They also remove obscurations, allowing the Buddha nature to become more manifest.
The Practice of Confession
One of the most powerful means of purifying past negative actions and eliminating future negative actions is the practice of Confession. Shakyamuni gave teachings to his followers on the power of confession, and confession was a regular feature of the daily prayer life of his followers.

We can practice confession ourselves on a daily basis. Daily confession helps us confront our faults, become more aware of how our actions affect others, and short-circuit our habitual tendencies. As we do this, negative habits, lose their grip on us, our obscurations 
slowly lift, and we become more “in touch” with our Buddha Nature and our potential for spiritual awakening.
We make confession by reciting a confession liturgy, such as reciting the sacred Sadhanas, Sutras and Mantras.  A Special Means of Purification is to recite the Vajrasattva Mantra. In addition, the Vajrayana teachings of the Buddha contain a special means for purifying negativity is the 100-syllable Mantra of Vajrasattva.

The Mantra is composed of seed syllables that are the embodiment of 100 “families”—all of the deities of the Vajrayana. Vajrasattva (Dorje Sempa in Tibetan) has vowed that his mantra would have the power to purify even the most terrible misdeeds, it is among the most powerful means we have for purifying negative karma and obscurations. 

The Tibetan word for mantra is “ngak,” implies power, meaning that the words themselves are powerful. But our attitude and intention in saying them is crucial, as well. Any mantra can bring about purification, if you think it will. But Vajrasattva’s mantra is especially powerful and prominent.
The 100-Syllable Mantra of Vajrasattva
OM VAJRASATTVA SAMAYA, 
MANUPALAYA VAJRASATTVA,
TENOPA TISHTHA DRIDHO ME BHAWA,
SUTOKHAYO ME BHAWA, SUPOKHAYO ME BHAWA,
ANURAKTO ME BHAWA, SARWA SIDDHI ME PRAYACCHA,
SARWA KARMA SU TSA ME, TSITTAM SHREYANG KURU, HUNG,
HA HA HA HA HO, BHAGAWAN SARWA TATHAGATA,
VAJRA MA ME MUNCA, VAJRI BHAWA, MAHA SAMAYASATTVA, HA.

New Year Aspirations - Aptitude

Yes, I am changing. * I am doing what makes me happy. After all, I am responsible for my happiness. And I owe it to me.*

Days slip into weeks, weeks turn into months and transform into years. Calendars are changing and so am I and you as well.

None of us knows when the most recent day of our expedition in this magnificent world will be. Vulnerability is dependably with us each minute, yet we go about as though we will live eternally.

In the event that we mull over profoundly about our lives, we may comprehend that our existence is fragile and destructible. It is momentary and impermanent, and this is the main right set of circumstances for us to be grateful and appreciative.

Changing ourselves into better people as we live. As for an individual, we conceived with imperfection. The capacity to take a shot at our defects and enhance ourselves is an interesting and unique nature of the human life. 

Nonetheless, a large number of us turn out to be excessively focused when we uncover our flaws when dealing with an undesirable circumstance. We shed tears  and discouraged. 
We overlook that the way toward gaining from fault and idealizing ourselves is the texture of existence. In this way, remind ourselves to cultivate the teaching of the Buddha without much theatrical work. Regardless of whether we will have a charming New Year or not relies upon how we think and how we manage our lives. 

With respect to myself, I am not anticipating  a smooth year, but rather I seek to have better aptitudes to withstand the effects of a hostile situation and carry on with my life completely notwithstanding when I am stuck with adversities. 

Being cared for ourselves is the way to joy. At that point cautiously it will extend onto others as well. So my aspire for each of you is to respect yourself and others. You are all-important to many individuals on every side of you.

What makes us special makes us strong

What makes us special makes us strong
I choose goodness, integrity and dignity it does not make me weaker.
I understood that goodness is our human instinct, that is one cannot be evil, and if its a malicious, such ruthless act will be accountable by it’s own Karmic forces.

In today’s world, how could we ever comprehend more evidently about the general population who are living appropriate alongside of us? For the most part , these are the people who live like us, who appear like us, however they don’t act or behave like us.

Do we know why there are such a large number of merciless battles against each other, many individuals fight compellingly without any solid reasons. Everyone’s having its own one of a kind, very own unique culture, backdrop and distinctive religions beliefs.

Nevertheless, there are so many individuals engaging in a violence, hostile or aggression toward others for the sake of their religion.
These are the ideas of conviction of our present day society:
  • People will fight for their religion in all causes,
  • People will die for their religion in all causes,
  • Yet, unfortunately people never learn and practice their religion diligently.

Our Lord Shakyamuni Buddha taught us before, it’s all about the five Kleshas or the five toxic minds. The five toxins and its key standards are as per the following:
1) Desire
2) Anger, hatred,
3) Ignorance
4) Pride
5) Jealously, envy

These five key standards can be additionally integrated into the three key guideline toxic minds:
1) Ignorance
2) Desire
3) Hatred or anger

How to practice mindfulness and self-reflection ?
How to manage when a time of intense difficulty, trouble, or crisis?
An authentic and useful mindfulness and reflection techniques do not affect your works and daily life. You don’t need to mastermind time to practice, you can even practice when you are walking. You can take a shot at walking and be aware of the movement onto the foot as the body pushes ahead and to stroll around at any speed.

Watch your progression and walk gradually and breath in normally. Besides, in reality it can be balanced for strolling around the street, similarly the length of you recall to concentrate in the city lights, different people, and not taking after a machine. This is to evacuate our look and helps you look after core interest.

The practice concentrates on your breaths, breathing in and out tenderly and be mindful. Being mindfulness has helped us to acquire comprehension of how our contemplation interface with. At whatever time, wherever can fundamentally by doing 10 minute reflection and contemplation.

By doing 10 minute reflection and contemplation. Any changes of reality, its inside the methodology of contemplation. This is known as the self reflection. A reflection helps every one of us with understanding our heart, conduct and end up being more prepared and aware of the consistent changes in life.
A reflection, similar to you are taking a gander at the mirror and it mirroring your self, however the mirror itself stay untouchable by any progressions or development. What is touchable is reflecting or looking like of our contemplation.

Take the Dharma as a mirror and investigate yourself, take the Dharma as a scale and measure yourself well before you realize that you are good or evil, otherwise it cannot be distinguished and recognized. People are selfish arrogance, the eyes see is the shortcomings and inadequacies of others, are their own preferences, they cannot see the benefits of others, but see their own problems.

So constantly accuse others, and do not have the foggiest idea about their own missteps, will not consider each other’s emotions, only consider their own sentiments. In order to practice the mindfulness and reflection meditation, we ought to cultivate these practices daily.
For instance, in the wake of getting up in the morning, you can meditate and reflect for 10 minutes to half an hour. Sit well after the first exhaled out: Inhale, then accompanied by breath, the possibility of the toxic substance minds, such as greed, hatred, ignorance and other negative toxins thoughts from the nostrils exhaled out of the body; this row three times. At that point, unobtrusively stay quiet for some time.

Do not underestimate the more than 10-minute practice, from here to get more settled, will give you an entire day attitude input positive vitality, play a good role in adjusting.
Before going to bed at night, it’s best to meditate for a few minutes. At this time meditation, like through massage to remove the physical fatigue, gently sit for a while, the inner exhaustion and clutter vanish. It can be said that this is a psychological massage that help us to free from stress and anxiety mentally and physically. 

Do you earnestly cherish our devoted work? Assuming this is the case, we are delighted that you are finding our blog useful. Would you consider making a donation for our Buddhist research and development? We need you to help secure the future of scholarly interaction with Buddhism. 

Your generosity will certainly help us improve our works and to achieve for a better and brighter prospect to come.
