想找一個人說說話
呷呷!
  我記得好像有這樣的文章:
  有一個單身貴族,已經五十歲的男士,事業有成。
  記者問:
  「你已五十歲,為什麼不結婚?」
  男士答:
  「沒有找到合宜的。」
  記者又問:
  「怎麼樣的女生才是合適的?」
  男士尷尬的說:
  「能夠談話的。」
  記者問:
  「能夠談話的還不簡單嗎?」
  男士說:
  「不容易!不容易!不容易!」
  記者想了想,終於恍然大悟,確實,能夠「交心談話」的人,太不容易了。
(In the above: a successful bachelor of 50 told a reporter that he is still single because can't find someone who he can really talk to.)

  又:
  康熙皇帝只找「容妃」談話。
  容妃是知所進退的人,康熙皇帝把心中的話,向容妃述說。
  後來。
  不得已,容妃被廢了。
  康熙皇帝想說說話,竟連一個說說話的人也沒有了。
  這是康熙皇帝最大的遺憾與悲哀。

  (This one about Emperor Kang Xi whose greatest regret and sadness is he can't find anyone to talk with.)


       呷呷!
  你知道嗎?
  前面二則,像是帶著悲劇哲學的氣息,我這一生,弟子像廣大的海一般,但,你知道嗎?
  我是很孤單的,在這個世界裡,找不到一個可以談談心的人嗎?
I am very lonely, in this world, can't find someone to chat with?

  有一回。
  我同你聊天,這一談,非常的密合,談得忘了有人在注意我們。

  那人說:
  「盧師尊同呷呷親密的交談,這一定有問題!」
  天啊!
  難道我們多交談幾句話,就會有問題嗎?
我連一個談心的人,都不可以有嗎?

  很多人把盧師尊與弟子分隔起來,不准盧師尊與人交談。
  Many separate GM Lu from students, don't allow GM Lu to chat.

這樣子做。對嗎?
Is this way of doing, right?

  呷呷!
  在這一生之中,你是我最值得談談話的一個人了!

  寫一首詩送給你
  你我的交往
  不是酒
  不是肉
  我們的話深厚

  談人生
  談生活哲學
  就是那麼的透

  細看你的嬌
  櫻桃吐出珠玉
  又體貼
  又無垢
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Hahaha!
Its true that a true buddy that one can truly chat with is Rare and hard to find!

However, you have Root Guru, The Living Buddha Lian Sheng, that is always by your side and chat with!

The "YOU" in the above article that GM Lu referred to, CAN BE YOU!

Remember the Tip that I shared about "How to talk to GM Lu"?
You will never be lonely at all if you established a "Direct Line or Link" with your Root Guru!

夢鄉日記(序)
呷呷!
我賞月時,偶而會站在庭院的草皮上,西雅圖的夜色是有寒氣的,寒氣會穿過我的喇嘛裙,直接的吻著我的雙腿。
那時,地上的小草已有了露水了,當我踩過,露水也會沾上腳板。
有人說:
「不要踩草!」
我問:
「為什麼?」
他答:
「小草因你踩它,它會死!」
我說:
「它不會死,小草最堅強,它是枯了,但,又會變綠,綠又枯,枯又綠,小草令我吃驚,很快的,它又是油綠一片。」
我欣賞小草,只因花會枯萎,樹會被砍,只有小草,永恆的存在。
I admire Little Grass, because Flower will wilt, tree will be chop, only Little Grass will exist forever.

良價的詩
可笑奇,可笑奇,無情說法不思議。
Can laugh at uniqueness, can laugh at uniqueness, Emotionlessly expounding dharma unfathomable.

若將耳聞聲不現,眼處聞聲方得知
If use ears to listen, sound won't appear, from eye to listen then can know.

我說:
「小草是無情說法,它說,我與你的愛,永遠不死,不可思議!」

<< 我們這一生,當然有很多挫折無數,來自於社會的,來自於家庭的,來自於人際的,來自於你的朋友的,來自於我的弟子的。
In our present life, surely have uncountable ups and downs, coming from society; family; human relation; from your friends; from my students.

他們像黑雲,層層的蓋住了月亮。
They are like black clouds, covering the moon in layers.

但,我明白,月亮還在。
But, I understand that the moon is still there.

終有一天,撕開了那層黑幕。
One final day, tear away the layer of black screen.

月亮從未離開。
The moon has never leave. >>


慧能的詩:Poem of Hui Neng:
不見一法存無見,
大似浮雲遮日面。
不知一法守空如,
還如太虛生閃電。
此之知見瞥然興,
錯認何曾解方便。
汝當一念自知非,
自己靈光常顯見。

這首慧能的詩,你能解否?
Can you decipher this poem of Hui Neng?

無念之法。
Dharma of No thought.

看法不著於法。
View Dharma, not fixated with Dharma.

直心是淨土。
Straight heart is pureland.

「浮雲遮日」又有何妨害!
"Floating clouds blocking Sun", what hinderance and harm is there!

只要你為我活,我為你活,我們就是小草,眾人都踩不死的。
As long as you live for me and I live for you, we are Little Grass, all of us can't be trampled to death. 

寫一首詩,送給你:
我的腳踩著小草
我的頭望著月華
我知道
相聚不易


小草有時序
月華有時序
我們總是彼此的相憶
別後的
離苦的
更加的綺麗


我總是傻傻的佇立
聚又散
散又聚

又送月華去

(編按:「六祖慧能」又有「六祖惠能」的寫法)
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Hahaha!
Finding this article is a true God-send! 

Choppiness of Life << ...........>> is one of my assignment topic from yesterday! :)

I will leave you to decipher Patriarch Hui Neng's poem. :)

Dragon God Statue 龙神金身

Above: Dragon God Statue about 28cm in height.

Hi KC

U can bring back for your dad to pray at his office.
Let me know u want or not.

If yes. pay me $50/-
will purify n bless tgen hand over to you.
cheers
=========
Dear Fashi, thank you for your offer :)

We would like to find out the size of the statue as dad 's shrine is small, worry can't accommodate.

Or is it ok to place on his office table?
The shrine already have 财神爷 , 老和尚 & 佛像 now.

Regards
=========

Hi KC,
The Dragon king statue, is exactly like the one I met in Taiwan's Green Dragon Lake.
He prefers to stay with me.

I am not aware how he came with the stuff from lipo, but somehow he came looking for me.

Been busy sorting thru the stuff from lipo.
Should have told you few days ago.

Cheers
========

Hahaha!

Bizarre?

Actually, in the Dragon King Temple beside the lake named after the Dragon King, I saw murals of Golden Mother with her attendants; the 8 Fairies; and many more. :)

When I looked at the Dragon God statue, a sense of Deja Vu occurred.

However, due to space constraint in my current place, I wrapped it up nicely and offered it to a fellow student whose family does business with products from the sea.

Hahaha!

After the visit, while in meditation on the tour bus, Dragon King appeared in all his fine glory, in a very friendly and joyful scenario!

So a lake and a sea has "difference"!

The Dragon King of the Lake, don't want to dwell in an altar by the Sea!

Well, Affinity is sometimes real hard to explain! :)


Pure Karma has more statues of other divinities and for the 9-inches metal statues, you can welcome them to your altars or shrines at SGD $200/- each, excluding Shipping & Handling!

We have statues of Vajrasattva; Marici; Usnisa Vijaya; Great White parasol Boddhisattva; White Padmakumara; Padmasambhava; Sakyamuni Buddha; Avalokitesvara Boddhisattva; ...

Berbagi: Seorang Guru Akan Selalu Memperdayaimu



Dibagikan dengan komentar oleh Lotuschef – 17 April 2015
Diterjemahkan oleh Lotus Nino
Sumber: Sharing: A Guru Always Takes You For A Ride


 

Sumber buku: A Guru Always Takes You For A Ride, by Sadhguru
Sumber video: A Guru Always Takes You For A Ride


Sharing dari Lotus CN:

Seputar mendapatkan kesaktian, berwelas asih, dan kecenderungan untuk meminta.

Jadi ingat saat kamu bilang orang-orang bisa saja berdoa kepadamu dan memohon banyak hal darimu, tapi terserah apakah kamu mau mengabulkannya atau tidak. Sungguh benar!

Kita semua harus berkembang sampai ke suatu tingkat supaya punya kapasitas untuk menerima anugerah yang bersangkutan.

Inilah mengapa dasar-dasar pengetahuan dan cara berpikir menjadi terlihat sangat penting, seperti yang kamu selalu tekankan.

Salam.

===

Di dalam tradisi Shaiva, Shiva menceritakan banyak kisah dan insiden untuk menyoroti keterbatasan, menyoroti masalah yang akan menimpa seseorang yang selalu memberi tanpa pandang bulu – masalah yang akan dialami oleh si pemberi dan si penerima karena memberi sesuatu kepada seseorang yang belum siap menerimanya. Kalau saja mereka telah mengembangkan kehidupannya sampai ke suatu titik, apa yang mereka inginkan, akan kesampaikan juga pada akhirnya; namun sebelum mereka sampai ke titik tersebut, mereka sudah ingin memilikinya.

Bila kamu menerima sesuatu sebelum kamu mengembangkan dirimu sampai ke suatu titik di mana kamu siap untuk menerimanya, karunia yang agung tersebut bisa menjadi sebuah kutukan besar. Ada sejumlah orang di planet ini yang berhasil memanipulasi situasi entah bagaimana untuk mendapatkan sesuatu yang mereka inginkan, namun mereka menjadi sangat menderita setelah menerimanya. Mereka akan lebih baik mengharap saja, tapi begitu harapannya dipenuhi, mereka terkena masalah besar. Jadi baik si pemberi maupun si menerima bisa terkena masalah hanya karena memberi sesuatu atau menerima sesuatu di saat mereka belum siap untuk menerimanya.

Dalam berbagai kesempatan, umat manusia, saat mereka sampai pada suatu tingkat keberhasilan, akan punya dorongan untuk menjadi terlalu berwelas asih. Namun welas asih yang salah tempat selalu muncul dari ego-mu; kamu ingin menjadi orang yang paling berwelas asih di planet ini. Di manapun siapapun membutuhkan apapun – kamu akan mengulurkan tangan. Hal seperti ini bukan muncul dari pemahaman, kebijaksanaan, ataupun kesadaran apapun. Ia datang dari keinginan untuk menjadi yang terbaik atau yang “paling”. Kamu tahu, apapun yang kamu lakukan, kamu ingin menjadi yang “paling”.

Di manapun kamu pergi, bahkan bila orang-orang bilang, “Aku bodoh”, mereka inginnya mengatakan, “Akulah orang yang paling bodoh di dunia ini.” Bahkan di sanapun mereka ingin menjadi yang pertama. Entah bagaimana mereka ingin menjadi yang terbaik – dalam satu sisi atau di sisi lainnya. “Aku ingin menjadi yang paling cerdas, atau aku ingin menjadi yang paling bodoh, aku tak ingin berada di antaranya. Aku tak ingin menjadi orang biasa; Aku entah bagaimana ingin menjadi spesial.” Jadi kamu ingin menjadi yang paling berwelas asih.

Masalah ini memang menjangkiti orang-orang – mereka ingin menjadi yang paling berwelas asih.

Namun welas asih yang sejati bukanlah tentang memberi atau mengambil.
 
Welas asih yang sesungguhnya adalah melakukan apa yang diperlukan.
 
Kamu sendiri tak punya preferensi lebih menyukai yang mana; cukup dengan melakukan apa yang diperlukan adalah berwelas asih.
 
Kamu menjungkir balikkan dirimu ke dalam emosi yang besar dan mengulurkan tangan kepada seseorang bukanlah berwelas asih.
 
Ia hanyalah sekedar kepuasan diri, cara yang melenceng untuk menggenapi dirimu.

Welas asih, welas asih yang tulen memungkinkan untuk dicurahkan, saat tak ada sesuatu di dalam dirimu untuk digenapi, kamu hanya melakukan apa yang diperlukan.
 
Tapi selalu saja, bila kamu terjebak di dalam emosi yang mendalam dan melakukan sesuatu, kamu merasa bahwa momen tersebut sangat berwelas asih. Bukan! Kamu itu sedang mencari penggenapan diri. Aku bukan berkata ada yang benar atau salah dengan hal tersebut, tapi hal tersebut masih datang dari ketidakcakapan tertentu.


Seorang suciwan yang terlalu berwelas asih sedang membagikan berbagai barang kebutuhan orang-orang tanpa pandang bulu. Karena pelatihan renunsiasinya, ia telah berhasil mendapatkan suatu kemampuan tertentu dan kemudian memberikannya kepada orang-orang.

Jadi suatu hari, Shiwa memanggilnya dan mencoba memberikan nasihat kepadanya, “Sebenarnya ini bukan hal yang baik. Caramu memberikan karunia dan anugerah kepada orang-orang, hal ini tak akan membawa kesejahteraan bagimu, atau kepada orang-orang yang kamu beri. Hal ini bisa membawa banyak masalah bagimu, mungkin juga memberi mereka banyak masalah, atau kedua belah pihal sama-sama terkena masalah. Jadi berhentilah memberikan anugerah ini. Bila orang-orang datang dan meminta, itu tak masalah, dan kamu juga tak harus memberinya.”

Parwati, istri Shiwa, yang sedang duduk di sana berkata: “Oh, Yang Mulia, bagaimana mungkin? Di dunia ini hanya ada sedikit orang yang rela memberi apapun. Dan beberapa orang yang memberi, kamu malah mencoba mencegahnya pula – apa maksudnya? Setidaknya beberapa orang yang rela memberi, biarkanlah mereka memberi. Kamu harus menjelaskan hal ini kepadaku. Ini sungguh tak adil. Sudah hanya ada sedikit pemberi: kamu juga ingin memotongnya dan membuatnya menjadi lebih kecil?”

Kemudian Shiwa menimpalinya: “Kamu lihat, ini bukan persoalan mengambil sesuatu dari orang-orang. Ini juga bukan menghalangi dunia untuk menerima sesuatu, juga bukan merupakan usaha menghalangi seseorang untuk bersukacita dalam memberikan sesuatu. Yang kumaksud adalah bukannya membantu orang untuk berkembang sampai ke suatu kondisi di mana mereka secara alami akan menerima karunia kehidupan, jika kamu memberikan sesuatu kepada seorang yang belum berkembang, kamu malah akan membebaninya. Kamu justru akan menghancurkan hidupnya. Bila kamu menaruh perhatian akan kesejahteraan seseorang dalam tingkatnya yang tertinggi, kamu harus menempatkannya melewati proses perkembangan dirinya yang penuh ketelatenan hingga ia mencapai suatu kemampuan tertentu, di mana ia akan mampu mengakses dimensi kehidupan yang lebih tinggi, dan proses menerima akan secara otomatis terjadi kepadanya karena ia memang layak mendapatkannya. Kalau kamu menghadiahkan emas satu ton kepada seekor semut, ia hanya akan menghancurkan si semut. Ia tak akan membuat si semut menjadi kaya; si semut malah akan tergilas.

Jadi apa yang kamu berikan, bagaimana caramu memberi, menjadi hal yang sangat penting. Kamu jangan memberi tanpa pandang bulu hanya karena seseorang meminta kepadamu.
...

Kini, hal tradisional, maksudku, seperti “godaan”, yang mereka ciptakan dalam diri orang-orang, di mana bila kamu melihat seorang suciwan, hal pertama (yang dilakukan) adalah mintalah apa yang kamu inginkan, dan hal tersebut akan terkabul.
 
Tapi aku memberitahumu, jangan pernah meminta, karena kalau si suciwan itu bijaksana maka ia tak akan memberi.
 
Namun kadang kala ia berada dalam semacam kondisi di mana ia akan mengiyakanmu.
 
Kalau ia bilang oke, berarti kamu dalam masalah, karena kamu akan mendapatkan sesuatu di mana kamu belum siap menerimanya.
 
Kalau kamu mendapatkan sesuatu di mana kamu belum siap, hidupmu bukannya menjadi lebih baik, tapi akan menjadi kacau dalam berbagai macam cara.

Jadi bila kamu duduk di suatu ruang, saat kamu duduk dalam suatu medan energi, jika kamu melihat seseorang atau suatu tempat yang memancarkan suatu tingkat energi, seperti suatu kemampuan yang sedikit lebih besar daripada dirimu saat ini, itulah saat di mana kamu tak memikirkan apapun, saat kamu tak meminta apapun, kamu hanya perlu duduk saja. Bila kamu bisa melakukan hal tersebut, kamu akan mendapatkan asupan energi untuk berkembang dengan sangat cepat, bermutasi dari suatu dimensi ke dimensi lainnya. Begitu kamu berkembang ke suatu kemampuan tertentu, segala hal yang mungkin terjadi di dalam dimensi tersebut akan terjadi begitu saja kepadamu. Bila kamu tak berkembang sampai ke tahap seperti itu, tapi hanya sekedar berambisi saja, maka kamu hanya membawa banyak masalah kepada dirimu sendiri.

======

Komentar:

Hahaha! Menarik!!!

Orang-orang yang tak punya kunci/kiat, bila diberikan juga pasti tak bisa mereka gunakan sama sekali!

Aku juga MEMPERDAYAI KALIAN semua selama ini!

KENAPA?
SUPAYA kalian semua melaju ke tingkat selanjutnya. Kamu harus punya bahan yang dibutuhkan untuk naik ke tingkat selanjutnya.

Jadi bukan salahku kalau orang-orang tak bisa bersadhana dengan baik dan kehidupannya malah menjadi tambah kacau, tambah miskin, ataupun sakit! :)

Aku berencana melakukan puja kecil di rumah.
Kertas sembahyang untuk para arwah terlantar, dewa bumi, dan dewa kota bisa dibakar di bawah setelah puja.
Sungguh mudah pula.

Jadi bisa melakukan puja 7 yidam dalam sehari atau sekali sehari!
Hahaha!

Teman-temanku sekalian yang terkasih, ingatlah kalau aku selaku mengatakan hal berikut:
Mengenai pelatihan diri, Tak punya berarti Tak punya, tak bisa membohongi diri sendiri, apalagi orang-orang lain!!!


Salam semuanya.

遇見本尊 Meeting with Principal Yidam ?

蓮生活佛 > 師尊文集 > 241_遇見本尊
GM Lu's literary collection > 241 Meeting with Principal Yidam


 Above: My Root Guru, His Holiness, The Living Buddha Lian Sheng.
I MET him at 5am. on 4 August 2008, after taking refuge at about 8.30pm on 3 August 2008.

 Above: Yellow Jambala, or the Northern Heavenly King, whom I met during my refuge on 3 August 2008, in Singapore. He was the Principal Yidam of that session.
AND in Seattle days before my ordination ceremony, in the form of a fellow student, who exhibited HIS aura!

 Above: Padmasambhava, I met HIM, hours before Saturday Cultivation session in Seattle. In Meditation, HE shows me "Cloudless Fine Sky" filled with Golden Vajra or Dorje, arranged in "Diamond" shapes.

 Above: Acala, my buddy, appears frequently after refuge, in front of me, to my Right hand side.
Also a friend sitting in the back seats of my car, sighted him on the roof of my car looking at her. :)

 Above: Bodhidharma, whom I met in Hong Kong at the Lotus Light Charity HQ.

 Above: Milarepa, whom I encountered in the form of a Thangka, displayed at a Nyingma gallery locally. When I met the reincarnation in Houston, I positively said to the dining companions that he is Milarepa.
And months later, GM Lu announced publicly that this student is Milarepa's reincarnation.

Above: During a Fire Puja session, I encountered Sharpyinma!

Dear all,

Some views on Mind Development – Sentient Mindset








Comments on : 
  • Mind Development – Sentient Mindset

  • ASSIGNMENT 13 April 2015

    Dear all,
    How can you help this student with Buddha Dharma?
    Please send your comments or Help to purekarmaservices@gmail.com
    You can make referral to Zen Patriarch Bodhidharma's sharings for this assignment.
    Learn and Use is the most important key for Buddha Dharma!

    Closing date for submission of comment for assignment: 20 April 2015

    Cheers all.
    ===========

From Lotus GY
I'd like to give my opinion on this case.

First of all, from reading the article, it could be said that this person suffers:
1. Being fixated on what is Good and what is Bad according to his own standard, therefore pushing his own views to others.
2. Wants to climb the stage of cultivation as fast as possible.
3. Loves to chase the so-called people with Titles.
4. Believes in others who have "powers" and has the tendency to take the opportunity of others whom he perceives as having "powers".
5. Loves to have "powers" and get blessings.
6. Has a strong ego that he disappeared and locked his facebook account after his opinions were published in the blog.


These are some notable quotes from Bodhidharma:
"People who seek blessings by concentrating on external works instead of internal cultivation are attempting the impossible."

"As long as you’re troubled by the three poisons or by thoughts of yourself, your deluded mind will keep you from seeing the Buddha and you’ll only waste your effort."

"Those who blindly observe the five precepts and foolishly indulge in love and hate are born as men in the realm of anger."

"You should realize that the practice you cultivate doesn’t exist apart from your mind...
Thus by overcoming the three poisoned states of mind the three sets of precepts are automatically fulfilled."


I think your comments in the related article have accommodate the things for him to save himself.
The main problem of this person is that he's so "full of himself". Anything he does is to get the best out of himself and to gain the so called transcendental powers.
This may lead to another problem if he doesn't know what to do with what he is pursuing.
Pronouncing "good" or "bad" standards at others means that he makes conclusion, instead of learning possibilities from other angles.

He should sit down, calm himself, and ask honestly:
If I have the blessings then what will I do with the blessings?
If I get the powers that I wish for, what will I do with the powers?
Will I get (real) powers by following the persons whom I believe to have those powers?
Do I really understand the meaning of bodhicitta and true compassion for others? Or do I just want to have powers so others would look high on me?

I think he knows that he's doing something unwholesome that he immediately disappeared and locked his facebook account. Afraid of being embarrassed of his own opinion. If he thinks that his opinion is honest and he can defend his views, there's no need to run away. Forcing precepts and standards to others is not the right thing to do, because overcoming the poisons and observing the precepts are really for the self, by the self, and not to be forced upon others.

One thing is that he has to know whether he is ready to "receive" such blessings.
What will I do when I really get such blessings? Will my ego overrule me after getting such blessings?
Do I know the meaning of giving help in time for those who need help and have affinity?
These are the things that he needs to ponder. This, I remember, because you've told me not to be emotional when trying to help others. Procuring helps should not be done indiscriminately.

Also needs to understand some more the advice from Guru Rinpoche.
To honour the Guru, treasure the dharma and cultivate diligently; in my own view is that we believe the teachings and instructions from the Guru, treasuring the dharma by cultivating the dharma being transmitted from the Guru. This is to be actualised by our own effort, and not by going around to ask for external blessings.
What the majority/trend is doing is not always the parameter of success.

If others can do it, oneself will also be able to do it, as long as one knows the keys. You've said it before, and now it makes sense, as long as one knows the "keys".
Progress in the ladder will be natural when one knows how to cultivate correctly and sharings with bodhicitta.


Finally, these are several slogans from Lojong that may be useful to him:

Slogan 1. First, train in the preliminaries; The four reminders or alternatively called the Four Thoughts:

1. Maintain an awareness of the preciousness of human life.
2. Be aware of the reality that life ends; death comes for everyone; Impermanence.
3. Recall that whatever you do, whether virtuous or not, has a result; Karma.
4. Contemplate that as long as you are too focused on self-importance and too caught up in thinking about how you are good or bad, you will experience suffering. Obsessing about getting what you want and avoiding what you don't want does not result in happiness; Ego.

Slogan 2. Regard all dharmas as dreams; although experiences may seem solid, they are passing memories.

Slogan 4. Self-liberate even the antidote.

Slogan 19. All dharma agrees at one point -- All Buddhist teachings are about lessening the ego, lessening one's self-absorption.

Slogan 20. Of the two witnesses, hold the principal one -- You know yourself better than anyone else knows you.

Slogan 28. Abandon any hope of fruition -- Don't get caught up in how you will be in the future, stay in the present moment.

Slogan 37. Don't turn gods into demons -- Don't use these slogans or your spirituality to increase your self-absorption.

Slogan 50. Don't be swayed by external circumstances.

Slogan 55. Liberate yourself by examining and analyzing: Know your own mind with honesty and fearlessness.
Cheers.

做生意 Doing Business




Chat:
LL: Do you think that ppl realised that I am doing them a favor by writing them off n forcing them to stand alone? :)
Guess most joined hands thinking to force me "out of business"! :)

like LY fashi said: You not doing business 你都不是做生意的! 
how can you push away clients怎么把客人推走!
to her, fellow students are clients that she can make $$ from! How sad!
Sun, 11:16 PM
[Note: I told this fashi that I will tell those that want to pay for consultation of personal matters that I will give them 20 minutes, upon the expiry of the 20 minutes or during the 20 minutes, I can choose not to answer or give any comments. It is up to them to accept or not!
What's wrong in being Honest? Some people just need to have someone hear them out! :)]

BB: it needs a good knowledge and wisdom to stand alone and trust that it'll be okay as long as they know how to do things right

LY fashi is the common case of most reverends i guess
when she chose to get ordinated, she should have a strong foundation and clear path to take
otherwise by trying to create a vendor-client situation, she's confusing herself


LL: viewership from Russia is high these few days!
someone just discovered our blog

most reverends in TBS are sentient minded. and acting out what they think a reverend should be
like lian lai said, I must spend more time to learn how to be a reverend!


BB: yes, with english articles, it can reach more to people worldwide

LL: although the numbers are not as much as previously, I am happy with current numbers as it is better to have genuine interest than those that click for fun or like YY, "showing support"! :)

BB: yes, far more useful for the readers who can benefit from your writings
===========

Dear all, are you one of those that "Commercialised Religion"?

In other words, "Sentient orientated Religion"?

Wake up please!

The Truth is:-
Supporting GM Lu means you are supporting the propagation of Authentic Buddha Dharma!
Also supporting the succouring of "lost beings"!

How come you are in the "lost beings"? :)

Padmasambhava had said that "those that are genuinely propagating Buddha Dharma and succouring beings, will never be left destitute or wanting. Their survival or daily needs will be well cared for.

See the Genuine Yogi that live simply or frugally, dedicating their time and resources to help others?
See also those that "Laps up Luxury" and act out sentient perceived forms?

Most think that they are to be treated with reverence and cared for in a luxurious way as they are ordained and a class or classes above others or laypersons.

WHY?

Hahaha! 
These are the ones that will never reach any "levels" or ultimate Buddhahood, BECAUSE they lack the Infinite Compassion for all beings, and also can't develop any Universal Wisdom which are inherent of all Buddhas.

We come back to Absolute Faith and also the Breaking Free or Breaking Through when you understand Waking Up!

I am a real good business person in the sentient minds, because I fixed a High Fee for my services!
Hahaha!

Question is: Can you pay the price, agree?

Please refer to:
SPECIAL DEDICATION & REGISTRATION

WHITE MATTER / BARDO DELIVERANCE CEREMONY

Pure Karma does not believe in catering or pampering those that think they need these and that for Personal Enhancement!

Pure Karma also does not give Special Privileges to anyone who think that they are special and must be treated with reverence and given priority attention or services!

Now, Think!

You need Pure Karma or Pure Karma needs you?

Hahaha!
