  • Rahula Teaching

    Rahula was born in Kamarupa into a low caste family. When he became an old man, he was severely ill treated by his family. He was very unhappy and began to think of his next birth, so he went to a cemetery where he met a yogin and shared his tale. Upon listening to the old man’s tale, the yogin then asked shouldn’t he be practicing the Dharma as provision for death? In reply, Rahula said “O guru, give the Dharma to me. Even though I am old and without wealth, please give me the Dharma.” And to that phrase, the yogin replied:

    The natural mind is without old age.

    Your nature is not dependent on wealth

    If, with devotion, you are able to practice the holy Dharma,

    I will take care of you.

    The yogin then gave Rahula initiation which transfers spiritual powers, and these instructions:

    Eclipse the concepts of which you have taken hold

    By the Rahu of non-dual experience.

    At the great bliss at the top of your head,

    The profound seed-point will arise.

    By the continuous integration of emptiness and bliss,

    You will overcome the enemies, the skandhas.

    The qualities of the Buddhas will arise,

    And lo, there will be unceasing wonders.

    The old man received these instructions and practiced it for 16 years, gaining the siddhi of Mahamudra. He trained living beings in Kamarupa, and having narrated his experiences, he went to the realm of the Dakas in this very body.

  • Take It For Granted

    We pass our life accumulate things that on the end of our life will finish in bin or car boot sales.

    When look in all aspects of our life we run to find love, to our career chasing till we break.

    When Shamar Rinpoche pass away he talk that he wasn’t attach to anything to this world when we take the path of yogi this teaching is very important.

    In fact mahasiddha knew very well impermanence and how short yet very precious this life is.

    For us that mean renouncing is step one the second step is to priotise the path instead of samsara.

    If we want to become like Milarepa if we can’t run to the mountains we need at least renounce to graps for samsara and focus on dharma.

    Milarepa state that life is short covid 19 have show how our life is very fragile, for example in our days we are so much in entertainment that we don’t know that some part of the world are living hell. Not knowing is due to our dullness what’s ignorance if we forget to investigate the world we will burn or virtue very fast.

    We need to remember virtues if we don’t make it we use it and when this virtues is gone we will face our karmic debt collectors.

  • Without The Lama There’s No Path

    Of all the Buddhas of the three times,

    the Guru is the root of all accomplishments.

    – Marpa Lotsawa

    Milarepa without Marpa would had totally different outcomes, today it’s Marpa Paranirvana and we need to remember the very big importance of our teachers.

    Without our kind teachers we will be unable to truly understand the path and relate on the psth.

    Marpa Story

    Marpa the Translator, or Marpa Lotsawa (ca. 1012 - ca. 1097), was a founding father of the Kagyu tradition of Tibetan Buddhism. He is credited with translating many Buddhist teachings into Tibetan - teachings of Vajrayana and Mahamudra. He also worked to transmit teachings of value to disciples in his lineage.

    Marpa’s full name was Lhodak Marpa Choski Lodos. He was born as Marpa Chökyi Lodrö, in Lhodrak Chukhyer in the southern part of Tibet.

    He was born into a quite prosperous family, began studying at a young age, and came to master Sanskrit. He travelled to India to study with renowned Indian Buddhist teachers, and then came home to Lhodrak, where he traded away his entire inheritance for gold to fund his travel expenses and to be better able to offer gold to teachers to pay for their teachings and initiations.

    First he went to Nepal. There he studied with two students of Naropa. One of the students later accompanied Marpa to somewhere near Nalanda University, where Naropa taught. Marpa spent twelve years studying with Naropa and other Indian gurus that Naropa sent him to to study beneath, or get instructions from, and most prominently Maitripada. After twelve years he travelled back to Tibet to teach and carry on. He now married Dagmema, and they prospered as farmers.

    After some years, he went south again to study for a further six years with Naropa. Before leaving to go home again, he promised his guru he would return to complete his training. And finally, well into middle age and against objections of his family, he set out for a third and final journey to India.

    In India, he learned that Naropa had disappeared into the jungle and that his whereabouts were unknown. However, eventually Marpa found him and got the final teachings and instructions from him. On this occasion Naropa foretold that Marpa’s lineage would be carried on by his disciples; not by his kin, although , Marpa and Dagmema had seven sons.

    DRIFTING YOGI– A rare modern day story of a spiritual adventure

    PART – 1 LEAVING HOME

    “On December 13th 2004, I gave up my class 12th board exams and fled to India to become a monk.

    I was brought up by a single mother along with three sisters. Growing up through dire poverty, my early childhood years were unforgettably sad and painful.

    Having been a dreamy boy, i took comfort from reading poetry and spiritual books at school. I was a lazy, dull-witted student and did not perform well in exams.

    Since i couldn’t figure out an ambition

    for my future, i remember studying the academic subjects only to get through the exams; so that i don’t disappoint my guardians who were spending for my schooling.

    To distract my attention from the troublesome situations of a boarding school life those years, where resources were scanty… and the constant bullying by elders, i drove my emotions deeper into spirituality and consoled myself through writing poems.

    Sometimes gazing at the serene images of Lord Buddha…. i started dreaming of studying and practicing meditation to achieve that amazingly peaceful and hypnotic composure of a sitting Buddha.

    And i didn’t care about achieving anything otherwise.

    So in December 2004 in Zhemgang higher sec. School, aged nineteen i gave up my bio-science exams and embarked on an extremely uncertain, risky and adventurous journey to India without a penny in my pocket.

    Making the long story short…….

    I arrived in india somehow and with much jubilation got admitted in a renowned Tibetan buddhist monastery in north India.

    But soon i was disappointed to learn that the monasteries are just another institutions to study ethics, philosophy and rituals in their respective traditions. And no monastery offered direct meditation instructions to the monks/students to realise for themselves.

    After just about one year in the Shedra, i quit the monastic life and started wandering in search of a master or a ‘Tsa wai Lama’.

    Which happened to be yet another crazy decision.

    PART – 2 MEETING WITH MASTER

    AND PRACTICE

    After a couple months of leaving the monastery i happened to travel in Lahoul valley near Ladakh.

    There i met a wandering Tibetan Yogi building an old-style rock Stupa on the mountain.

    Our meeting sparked in me a curious sense of emotions that was mixed with joy and tears when ever he talked to me.

    Tired of wandering and pilgrimage, the desperate me requested him to take me to where ever he was based, so that i can serve him and learn more from him and about him.

    Living with him, my life became more difficult and uneasy.

    Since his nature was extremely harsh and extremely loving sometimes. But at the end of each passing day i found out that my emotions were being tested to the limit and he was teaching me a lot in disguise.

    So considering his arrogance to me as a rare blessing i made a firm resolution to never leave him in no matter what situation.

    After much waiting, i received instructions and his protection to pursue solitary retreats. Constantly wandering from one mountain cave to another, from deep forests to deserts,

    From sea shores to solitary islands, sleeping on the roadsides, under the trees and cemeteries, i wandered like a fallen leaf carried by the wind.

    Once i walked about 700 miles and bicycled 2000 miles under the heavy rains and scorching sun of tropical India. They were all a part of my yogic practice of drifting without a particular aim.

    For more than twelve years, being so lost and carried away in retreats and wandering… i have almost forgotten my home country Bhutan.

    PART – 3 A VISION

    During my retreats in the forests of central India, my provisions were taken cared by the innocent villagers, who were newly converted buddhists due to caste issues in indian social system.

    Villagers were more than happy to have me, a buddhist practitioner from a foreign land in their remote villages.

    So moved by their innocent reverence i started teaching them meditation, the essence of all the teachings of the buddha…. Although i struggled to interpret my thoughts to them through my extremely poor spoken Hindi.

    Later in early 2017 i travelled to south east asian countries invited by some friends.

    There i was surprised to discover a vibrant culture of education and youth who were equally enthusiastic to practice meditation to enhance their quality of lives through spiritual values and understanding.

    We can all agree to one inevitable challenge, that our pursuit of modern lifestyle and it’s glamour, is costing a serious toll on mental health to everyone.

    And simultaneously dragging our beautiful home planet into a disaster of pollution and over-exploitation.

    It was highly nourishing for me to meet amazing young people in those countries, who were raising concerns about the future of humanity and giving their commitments to spiritual lives through the practice of meditation in their daily lives.

    In late 2018 i came back to Bhutan to visit my mother.

    And started travelling and teaching meditation in Bhutan without the pre-requirements of arduous ngondro practices.

    To my surprise many students young or elderly, literate or illiterate, started giving me amazing feedbacks through their own experiences just after a few months of practice. And were thoroughly inspired to follow the path of meditation in order to understand the dharma deeper for further enlightenment.

    Some students have stopped drinking and smoking as a natural effect of meditation. And a few more have recovered from depression and migraine.

    But at the same time, some people seemed still confused and quite suspicious regarding my initiatives.

    While i welcomed their doubts and criticism, i was also scanning the psychological landscape of people influenced by their own belief systems.

    So my dear elders, youngers, friends and relatives in Bhutan.

    Let me take some space to share my humble opinions of what meditation is all about.

    In other countries buddhist meditation is taught in school systems to enhance the performance of students.

    i have seen buddhist meditations practiced in christian churches to generate faith and devotion in christ.

    Buddhist meditations are practiced by psychologist and psychiatrists and implemented on their patients to recover from their mental disorientation.

    Buddhist meditations are taught in high profile leadership and business management courses to enhance their productivity.

    Buddhist meditation is practiced in the military of some countries for better focus and precision in their training.

    Buddhist meditation is practiced by hard-core criminals in prisons to recover from their corrupted state of minds.

    One friend in Philipines, a school teacher is teaching meditation in a catholic school, and the school administration approves her initiative.

    In Burma, Sri lanka and thailand politicians practice meditation to render their political service more effectively.

    So my dear friends in Bhutan,

    those people in other countries may never have heard of arduous ngondro practices but they are still practicing meditation as the heart of all teachings of buddha and getting benefited immensely.

    Now…. one can definitely argue my statements that those meditations are from different origins, like the Theravada from Burma or Srilanka,

    Zen from Japan and ours is secret Dzogchen from the path of vajrayana.

    To this possible argument, i can simply answer that even if the meditation practices originate from different, different countries and traditions……. ALL THOSE MEDITATION MANUALS EXIST IN THE VAST COMPILATION OF KANJUR AND TENJUR, TO WHICH WE ALL PROSTRATE UN-KNOWINGLY

    WHEN WE VISIT THE TEMPLES AND MONASTERIES.

    Ngondro, a set of mandatory preliminary practices that require five to 6 months to complete is an amazing tool to enter the Vajrayana buddhist path.

    But at the same time…… Buddhas meditation teachings, being the answer to all human quests….sadly remain inaccessible to a large section of devout buddhists in our country. Simply because most aspiring meditation practitioners cannot fulfill the obligation to complete the long and arduous ngondro which is the standard practice required by tradition, as the gateway to the path of meditation.

    But dear friends…. I speak with conviction through what little experience and observations i have gathered, that ngondro can be also practiced after meditation.

    in fact NGONDRO BECOMES MUCH MORE AUTHENTIC AND JOYFUL IF PRACTICED WITH A PRIOR EXPERIENCE OF MEDITATION.

    A few weeks ago a friend of mine sent me the Royal Kasho granted by our beloved His majesty the king, regarding the reformation of educational system.

    As a humble citizen, I was deeply moved by the concerns made by His majesty the King, regarding the future of our youth and education in comparison to the extremely fast changing environment we live in.

    My heart was throbbing…. and while i was holding my breath, i realised that even as a humble and a nameless citizen, living lonely as the road, i have fondly entertained many dreams…. if my independent research in the field of meditation therapies from the deep buddhist wisdom, can contribute an additional facility to our existing model of education.

    So on this beautiful social networking platform i drifting yogi would like to share my deep prayers and aspirations

    To teach meditation further in Bhutan,

    Purely as a science of self discovery under secular setting…. and also as the essence of our Vajrayana path.

    I have a dream to teach meditation to our budding youth to empower themselves to pursue their passion in life and achieve their goals to live a life of contentment.

    And recovering from any kind of addictions from substance abuses through mental strength cultivated from meditation.

    In 2019 when i was still in India, i heard some horrifying news from Bhutan about a series of rapes of minors in Paro, Dagana and somewhere.

    My senses went numb…. and my mind was in dilemma out of sheer terror.

    Because deep down…. i felt, if our youth can be educated in the practice of meditation, then such horrors can be totally prevented, by transforming the emotions of the practitioner into a naturally joyful and liberated state of being.

    Finally, before i end this story,

    I will drop a wish, that this story reach as many readers as possible.

    And I deeply apologise if reading this story was a waste of time to some readers.

    If any reader like this story, then i thank you for ur gesture of support.

    And if any reader find flaws in my statements,

    I welcome your valued criticism, so that i can learn a little from you.

    MAY ALL BEINGS BE HAPPY!”

    Whenever we go anywhere we develop the thought, “I am going,” and grasp at an inherently existent act of going. In a similar way, when someone comes to visit us we think, “they are coming,” and we grasp at an inherently existent act of coming…. However, the coming and going of people is like the appearance and disappearance of a rainbow in the sky. When the causes and conditions for a rainbow to appear are assembled, a rainbow appears; and when the causes and conditions for the continued appearance of the rainbow disperse, the rainbow disappears; but the rainbow does not come anywhere, nor does it go anywhere.

    Verse 13. Lust Penetrates Untrained Mind

    Yamaka Vagga (Twin Verses)

    _______________________________

    “Even as the rain does penetrate

    a house that’s badly thatched,

    likewise lust does penetrate

    the mind uncultivated.”

    Explanation: It is quite necessary that a house should have a well-thatched roof. If the thatching is weak, rain seeps through the house. Just as a badly thatched roof lets in the rain, the uncultured temperament too is open to passions. The temperament that is not cultured is penetrated easily by lust.
