Our compassion should be directed towards external phenomena and reality, and toward other living beings. Without compassion, sentient beings will simply vanish. Without sentient beings there will be no bodhisattvas or enlightened beings. This is why the compassionate mind is tremendously powerful.

The fundamental principle of Buddhism is to truly believe in the cause and effect.

Our human life is precious, so do not let disturbing emotions arise due to our and others’ ignorance. Obstacles can only be eliminated when we let go of afflictions.

Self-grasping leads to sufferings whereas compassion brings happiness.

The positive way to show selflessness is to rejoice in virtuous deeds done by others and do not feel jealous of other people’s accomplishments.

Good morning, dear students and Dharma friends!

Today is the 1st day of 4th Tibetan month. It is the beginning of the most auspicious Buddhist festival in Tibet. During this month of Saka Dawa (19/05/2015 to 16/06/2015), the effects of positive and negative actions are multiplied by 10 million times.

So let us engage in virtuous activities such as paying homage to Buddha, meditation, chanting mantra and prayers, generating compassion and bodhicitta etc. Dharma practice is strongly recommended in this month.

All virtuous deeds will bring powerful blessings, helping accumulate merits and purifying obscurations. Thus, we should not waste this rare opportunity.

Buddha Shakyamuni mantra:
~Om Muni Muni Maha Muniye Soha~

In life, we will experience living and dying, changing feelings, fluctuations in wealth, gain and loss of power, as well as highs and lows in status. The nature of objects is impermanence as constant change.

That’s why we should enhance our spirituality and develop compassion and wisdom in life. Only by doing this can we be lead on to the path of liberation and gain ultimate happiness.
