Creating Peace in the World

Lama Zopa Rinpoche has offered much advice on creating peace in the world. You can find much of this advice posted on the “Lama Zopa Rinpoche Advice” page on FPMT.org. 

Rinpoche encourages students to recite the Golden Light Sutra to help create the causes of peace. Of its benefits, Rinpoche said, ”The holy Golden Light Sutra is the king of the sutras. It is extremely powerful and fulfills all one’s wishes, as well as bringing peace and happiness for all sentient beings, up to enlightenment. It is also extremely powerful for world peace, for your own protection and for the protection of the country and the world. Also, it has great healing power for people in the country.”

The Very Beginning of Dharma: The Thought of Impermanence

“When you have in mind the thought that death can come today, if something suddenly happens, it is not a shock,” Lama Zopa Rinpoche instructs in his book Bodhisattva Attitude: How to Dedicate Your Life to Others. “It is not a shock at all because your mind is prepared. You have already trained your mind by thinking very strongly about death first thing every morning and keeping that awareness throughout the day. That helps you to be at peace and not have fear when you face a life-threatening problem or something similar.

“If your mind has not become Dharma because you haven’t trained in the thought of impermanence but instead have always thought, ‘I am going to live for a long time,’ and done all your activities with attachment to this life, then if something opposite to that suddenly happens and thereality of life –... more »

The Very Beginning of Dharma: The Thought of Impermanence

“When you have in mind the thought that death can come today, if something suddenly happens, it is not a shock,” Lama Zopa Rinpoche instructs in his book Bodhisattva Attitude: How to Dedicate Your Life to Others. “It is not a shock at all because your mind is prepared. You have already trained your mind by thinking very strongly about death first thing every morning and keeping that awareness throughout the day. That helps you to be at peace and not have fear when you face a life-threatening problem or something similar.

“If your mind has not become Dharma because you haven’t trained in the thought of impermanence but instead have always thought, ‘I am going to live for a long time,’ and done all your activities with attachment to this life, then if something opposite to that suddenly happens and the reality of life – its impermanence – is shown, all of a sudden, while you are planning billions of things, you get an incredible shock.

“You may know Buddhism and have memorized the hundred volumes of the Buddha’s teachings (Kangyur) and the two hun­dred volumes of commentaries (Tengyur) and be able to explain and recite them by heart, but your mind has not thought about impermanence. You may know by heart all the root texts, the five great treatises, along with the tantric texts and commentar­ies and be able to explain them, but your mind has not thought of impermanence. Because you have been living your life with the concept of permanence, the day something happens and the reality of life is shown, it is a shock and there is incredible fear. Suddenly you see that you don’t want to die. It is not that you don’t want to die because you want to benefit sentient beings. I am not talking about that. You don’t want to die for fear of what will happen after death. You don’t want to die because of fear. You don’t want to lose this body. You don’t want to lose your possessions, property, belongings or family. Your mind is clinging to these things and because of that, there is great fear.

“Meditating on impermanence is the very beginning of Dharma, but look what happens if this meditation is left out or if you thought it wasn’t important because emptiness, shunyata or some tantric meditation was more important.”

You can read more from the chapter “The Teachings: Cutting the Concept of Permanence” from the book Bodhisattva Attitude: How to Dedicate Your Life to Others by Lama Zopa Rinpoche and published by the Lama Yeshe Wisdom Archive.

The Cause of Death

“In reality, even if we believe that we will live for a long time, that we have so many years to live – like 100 years or more, and maybe after 100 years, we expect another hundred years (I’m joking) – in reality, there is nobody who has lived who has not died,” Lama Zopa Rinpoche wrote to the mother of a student, who was worried about death. “Even this big earth has to perish after another great eon. Since every person who is born in this world is under the control of karma and delusion, there is nobody, nobody, since human beings started until now, who has lived without death. There is nobody.

“Buddha has no death, because there is no cause of death. The cause of death is not outside but inside –karma and delusions. Buddha removed this inconceivable eons ago, because he purified the delusions and even the subtle obscurations whichinterrupt the omni... more »

“Buddha has no death, because there is no cause of death. The cause of death is not outside but inside –karma and delusions. Buddha removed this inconceivable eons ago, because he purified the delusions and even the subtle obscurations which interrupt the omniscient mind, so it is impossible for the Buddha to experience death. There is no old age, no sickness, no death for him at all, but he showed holy deeds, passing away in the sorrowless state. If Buddha did not show death, then we would not appreciate his teachings and we would become very lazy. Buddha showed death to destroy the wrong concept of permanence of our lives, which are impermanent, and also to show us that we need to practice Dharma, because of suffering and the cause of suffering. …”

What the Practice of Dharma Really Means

In February 1990, Lama Zopa Rinpoche gave a series of teachings as part of the Third Enlightened Experience Celebration, which took place in Bodhgaya, India. His discourse was based on the 15th-century text Opening the Door of Dharma. During the teachings, Lama Zopa Rinpoche described how he came across the text in his late twenties and what it meant to him:

“In 1974, while I was staying in the cave of the previous Lawudo Lama in the Solu Khumbu region of Nepal, I decided to check through all the texts that had belonged to him. They were mostly Nyingma texts relating to the practices of various deities, but there was one text that is a fundamental practice of all four Tibetan sects. The text I found was Opening the Door of Dharma: The Initial Stage of Training the Mind in the Graduated Path to Enlightenment.

What the Practice of Dharma Really Means

In February 1990, Lama Zopa Rinpoche gave a series of teachings as part of the Third Enlightened Experience Celebration, which took place in Bodhgaya, India. His discourse was based on the 15th-century text Opening the Door of Dharma. During the teachings, Lama Zopa Rinpoche described how he came across the text in his late twenties and what it meant to him:

“In 1974, while I was staying in the cave of the previous Lawudo Lama in the Solu Khumbu region of Nepal, I decided to check through all the texts that had belonged to him. They were mostly Nyingma texts relating to the practices of various deities, but there was one text that is a fundamental practice of all four Tibetan sects. The text I found was Opening the Door of Dharma: The Initial Stage of Training the Mind in the Graduated Path to Enlightenment.

“A collection of the advice of many Kadampa geshes, Opening the Door of Dharma is by Lodrö Gyaltsen, a disciple of both Lama Tsongkhapa and Khedrub Rinpoche, one of Lama Tsongkhapa’s two spiritual sons. This text describes the initial stage of thought transformation, or mind training – in other words, the first thing to practice if you want to practice Dharma.

“Only when I read this text did I come to know what the practice of Dharma really means. During all the years of my life up until then I had not known. Practicing Dharma is usually regarded as reading scriptures, studying, memorizing, debating, saying prayers, performing rituals, and so forth. It was only when I read this text that I found out how to practice Dharma. I was very shocked that all my past actions had not been Dharma. When I checked back, all those past years of memorizing and saying prayers were not Dharma. From all those years, nothing was Dharma. …”

Rinpoche’s discourse on Opening the Door of Dharma can be read in the book The Door to Satisfaction, edited by Vens. Ailsa Cameraon and Robina Courtain and published by Wisdom Publications. A PDF of the “Foreward” by Kirti Tsenshab Rinpche, “Editor’s Preface” and “Prologue” is available from Wisdom online. The “Prologue” includes Rinpoche’s account of his education, meeting Lama Yeshe and returning to Lawudo as well as the significance of his discovery of Opening the Door of Dharma. 

Lama Zopa Rinpoche is the spiritual director of the Foundation for the Preservation of Mahayana Tradition (FPMT), a Tibetan Buddhist organization dedicated to the transmission of the Mahayana Buddhist tradition and values worldwide through teaching, meditation and community service.

Essential Mantras for Holy Objects

“It is not good to leave statues or stupas completely empty. To leave a statue empty is like offering nothing to the buddhas and can create obstacles,” Lama Zopa Rinpoche instructs in “Essential Mantras for Holy Objects.”

“Therefore, it is important to put something inside of the statue, even as little as a few mantras and some incense. This is also true when offering statues to your teachers, there should always be something placed inside of them for auspiciousness. If you need to wait a while until your statue/stupa can be properly filled and consecrated, then roll up a copy of the Four Dharmakaya Relic mantras, or the five powerful mantras and place them inside the statue with some incense for the time being. …”

The Root of the Path

“In the lam-rim, or graduated path to enlightenment, the first meditation outline is the root of the path: how to devote to the virtuous friend. Why is guru devotion the root of the path to enlightenment? Enlightenment is like a ripe fruit, the path to enlightenment is like the trunk of a tree, and guru devotion is like the root of the tree. From the root of guru devotion, the trunk of the path grows in our mind and bears the fruit of enlightenment. Whether or not we can start to develop the path to enlightenment in our mind in this life is determined by our practice of guru devotion,” Lama Zopa Rinpoche teaches in The Heart of the Path.

“Proper devotion to the guru, or virtuous friend, is the root of all success, from success in this life up to enlightenment, just as the trunk, branches, leaves and fruit of a tree depend upon its root. Or we canthink t... more »

“Proper devotion to the guru, or virtuous friend, is the root of all success, from success in this life up to enlightenment, just as the trunk, branches, leaves and fruit of a tree depend upon its root. Or we can think that guru devotion is like the fuel in a car or a plane, without which the vehicle cannot take us where we want to go. Without guru devotion, nothing happens – no realizations, no liberation, no enlightenment – just as without the root of a tree there can be no trunk, branches, leaves, or fruit. Everything, up to enlightenment, depends on guru devotion.

“Guru devotion is the root not only of ultimate success, achieving full enlightenment and bringing sentient beings to the ultimate happiness of liberation and enlightenment, but also of temporary success and happiness. This practice is the foundation of the development of the whole path to enlightenment, as well as the foundation of all happiness. Since everything comes from the practice of guru devotion, it is called the root of the path. …”

This practice is the foundation of the development of the whole path to enlightenment, as well as the foundation of all happiness. Since everything comes from the practice of guru devotion, it is called the root of the path. …”

You can read more in this excerpt from “Why Do We Need a Guru?,” the first chapter of the book The Heart of the Path: Seeing the Guru as Buddha by Lama Zopa Rinpoche, published by the Lama Yeshe Wisdom Archive.

Supermoon and Meteor Showers Both Will Light Up Sky Sunday. ~

Sky observers in the Northern Hemisphere will get a special treat this Sunday as a “super moon” and meteor showers are expected to happen at the same time.

The annual meteor shower will light up the night sky with as many as 100 shooting stars an hour. It will be joined by a "super moon," which occurs when the Earth is at its closest distance to the moon. The full moon will also bring extra high and low tides, making it extra fun for surfers.

The meteor shower will peak between Aug. 10 and Aug. 13. It is created when space debris from the tail of the Swift-Tuttle comet strikes the Earth’s atmosphere.
 
To see the meteor shower, you don’t need a telescope, binoculars or any other equipment. All you need is your eyes. Meteor shower could put on a dazzling show in the sky. Enjoy! ~ Moongla... more »

Papaver rhoeas ....lest we forget

Some have probably seen this field poppy image in my Blurs and Unsharpness album.  It's a macro but one with a difference!   

No fancy filters created this very 'foggy' vignette.  Would you believe it if I told you it was all thanks to a plastic bag?  I wrapped it around the lens with just a little hole torn in the middle so that I could get at least one of the petal edges in focus.

More floral images can always be viewed on my website - http://photography.leavesnbloom.com

Sharing today with +BTP Flower Pro with +Sarah Sever 
+FLOWER POWER with +Edith Kukla 
 +MacroAddict with +Didier Caron and +Sandrine Berjonneau 

and since a plastic bag is an 'everyday' thing  I'm sharing with my friend +luca lancieri and his theme +EVERYDAY THINGS

Buddha Amitabha Invited to Buddha Amitabha Pure Land

In early July, the residents of Buddha Amitabha Pure Land, the FPMT retreat land in Washington State in the United States, welcomed a large Amitabha statue to their property with a procession of incense and music. Students from near-by Pamtingpa Center also participated in the festivities. Lama Zopa Rinpoche advised the students to do many specific prayers both when the statue was installed and after the statue was filled with mantras for consecration, including Lama Tsongkhapa’s “Praise to Amitabha.”

The 13-foot (4-meter) tall statue is made of highest-quality white marble from Vietnam and weighs 16 tons (14,790 kilograms). It took over two years for the sculpting to be completed.

Buddha Amitabha Invited to Buddha Amitabha Pure Land

In early July, the residents of Buddha Amitabha Pure Land, the FPMT retreat land in Washington State in the United States, welcomed a large Amitabha statue to their property with a procession of incense and music.

The 13-foot (4-meter) tall statue is made of highest-quality white marble from Vietnam and weighs 16 tons (14,790 kilograms). It took over two years for the sculpting to be completed.


Long-time student Ven. Yarpel (John Jackson) constructed a throne for the new Amitabha, which was filled with tsa-tsas and other precious items, such as ceremonial wealth vases. He also prepared the grounds for the statue’s throne and made room for the crane that lifted the statue out of its crate. Traditional Tibetan artist Gelek Sherpa has been invited to paint Amitabha and his throne.


When Rinpoche arrived at the land later in July, he spent time buying incredible flower offerings, describing how he wants the grounds around Amitabha to be like a “pure land” filled with trees and flowers. Already, in the gardens of Buddha Amitabha Pure Land, there are recordings playing the Sanghata Sutra and the Sutra of Golden Light 24 hours a day, blessing any beings that hear them. 

Mandala brings you news of Lama Zopa Rinpoche and of activities, teachings and events from over 160 FPMT centers, projects and services around the globe. If you like what you read on Mandala, consider becoming a Friend of FPMT, which supports our work.

Lama Zopa Rinpoche’s New Advice on Israel and Palestine

Lama Zopa Rinpoche has offered new advice this week to bring peace to Israel and Palestine:

“1. [The] Golden Light Sutra – this is the best one to read at this time; this brings healing for the whole area,” Rinpoche’s advice begins. “It helps to not be controlled or have the country taken over by another, it gives power to the leader. I checked and it is more powerful to have the Sutra of Golden Light recited by the monks in the monastery, it is more effective. So sponsor Gaden Lachi (Gaden Shartse and Jangtse together) to read the Golden Light Sutra. Request the monks to deeply dedicate for Israel and Palestine to have peace. …” You can find the complete “Advice Regarding the Israel and Palestine Situation” as a PDF.

FPMT Education Services has created a page for the Sutra of Golden Light, which contains advice on the benefits of the sutra, links to PDF downloads of the sutra in 14 languages, and audio MP3s of an oral transmission of the sutra by Kirti Tsenshab Rinpoche.

In the advice, Rinpoche suggests recitation of the White Umbrella Deity (Sitatapatra) praise. FPMT Education Services makes available “A Praise and Repelling Practice of Sitatapatra” and “The Supreme Accomplishment of Sitatapatra” as PDFs.
