Cultivate Generous Thought and practice giving gifts to the Sanghas.

The Buddha once explained that it is a meritorious act even to throw away the water after washing one's plate with the generous thought: 

"May the particles of food in the washing water be food to the creatures on the ground." 

Even when the waste is discarded with pure thought as it benefits some one, it is also an act of indirect giving and do accumulate merit.
For example, when you throw empty mineral water bottles in dustbin think as above, it bring good virtue as it benefits some waste collectors. 

When, these waste brings so such merits, just think how much merits you will accumulate when you practice giving real gifts.

Giving is one of the essential preliminary steps of Buddhist practice. When practiced in itself, it is a basis of merit or wholesome karma. When coupled with morality, concentration and insight, it leads ultimately to liberation from samsara, the cycle of repeated existence.

So in the practice of giving keep one's mind pure, select the worthiest recipients available ( usually monks) , and choose the most appropriate and generous gifts one can afford.

Tibetan Eye Chart that is handy today

This timely Tibetan Eye Chart which was developed by Tibetan Lama long ago (before the light was invented ) is now becoming very essential in today’s context.
With the outburst of digital world people literally can’t stay their eyes away from fiddling electronic gadgets. Everyone is seen busy with their Mobile phones most of the time.

Watching anything on small screen strains our important eyes. There is danger of loosing eye sight slowly. All experienced blaring of eyes from time to time on usage of mobile phones.Therefore, we must give exercise to our eyes.

For generations the people of Tibet have used natural methods to correct visual weakness and improve their eyesight. Chief among the methods employed has been the use of certain exercises which have proved useful over long periods of time. 

The figure on this chart was designed by Tibetan Lama Monks to give the necessary corrective exercises and stimulation to the muscles and nerves of the optical system.
The eye Muscles focus similar to a camera shutter.
The purpose of these exercises is to strengthen the eye muscles to improve vision.
A few minutes practice morning and evening will bring immediate effects and over a period of months a most definite improvement will result.

How to Use the Chart

These exercises are to be done without eye glasses or contacts.
Do each movement for 30 seconds while in a sitting position, spine straight and do not move the head side to side. Move only the eyes.

1.) With the palm of each hand cup both closed eyes to relax them.
2.) Move the eyes clockwise around the outer circle of dots
3.) Repeat this movement in a counterclockwise rotation
4.) Move the eyes back and forth between the dots at 2 and 8 o’clock
5.) Repeat this movement back and forth between dots at 4 and 10 o’clock
6.) Blink the eyes briefly and finish therapy with the palming same as exercise as No. 1
Repeat exercises as desired being careful to avoid strain. 

After beginning therapy wear eyeglasses and contacts as little as possible. In time these crutches will become unnecessary.

The process of repair and the reforming of the curvature of the back of the eye require specific exercise and the increase of the nutrients used only by the eye for its repair and maintenance. 

Like any other muscle the more exercise the more nutrients are needed.
So find out which nutrition is good for eyes and consume that.
Hopefully, it will improve your eye sights.

Please take care your eyes.

Daily increase your merits.

Nargarjuna said:

“Since life is full of harms and more impermanent than a water-bubble blown by the wind, it is a wonderful surprise to have the chance to wake up from sleep, breathing in and out.”

Daily when you wake up in the morning think of the impermanence nature of us. Understanding that our life is like a water bubble that can burst at any time it is wise to practice dharma and be compassionate to all sentient beings.

As explained by Buddha in the sutra teachings, if you recite
seven times, it increases any merit you collect during the rest of the day 100,000 times.

Length of life: 71 years. There will be four difficult times during the life. 
Birthmark: Has a birth-mark or mole on the right side. Is left-handed. 
Practice: The practice involves obtaining a Chenresik statue (loving kindness, compassion) and practicing this sadhana. 
A person born in this Mewa is given by a heaven-god, and will therefore have not many but only one single descendant. His foots generate whirls of wind, therefore he likes to travel.
Past life: In his past live he had been at first a king of this world and then he was born in the heaven.
Present life: he has now been born in the human realm. Signs and influences of his previous lives in the different realms are shown in this life as mole chains located in the lower abdomen or in the right side of the back or in the right arm. Alternatively, if the person does not have mole chains in the right side, he will be left handed and will have precise birth marks in the lower part of the body.
Character: If he is a man, he will be a brave. If he is a female, she will not be inferior to others for what concerns properties, but she will need to change her house. In case the person is a woman, she will like men very much.
One of his ancestors is the Yang (prosperous) of the family. Because of loosing this Yang (prosperous), probably his descendants will suffer from handicaps, rheumatisms, arthritis, eyes problems, blindness or alternatively, if the above mentioned illnesses will not happen, his descendants will suffer by shoulder pains, nose and eye problems. There will always be unhappiness with the mind not remaining in the heart. By nature he will be nervous, short tempered, but good of heart.
His earlier part of life will be characterized by significant changes of fortune and there will be a psychological suffering and sadness. His later part of life will be happy and harmonious.
Health: This will be subject to two conditions: either the person will become an orphan or he will be influenced by the negative energy originated by a grudge coming from - his mother's or sister's side. This negative energy is not very favourable to his protectors, therefore he will probably suffer from sensory organ problems or from parents dying during a journey or from missing bones of the head, the consequence of which is that the person will hold two places of residence. His character will be short of breath, nervous and short tempered. His favourite property will be dairy animals. He will like milk products and wine.

Pacification: If the person is going to build an Avalokitesvara statue, he will be reborn as a male in a rich family or he will be born as a god or as a Brahman in this world.
Spirits: This person will be provoked by King Spirit, Thumb size spirit and Gongpo spirits, therefore he will feel the burning of the mind. There is a big danger that a Gongpo spirit will enter into his heart. His protectors are white female Naga spirits and they will protect him from any negative influence.
Advice: If the person is good and clean from a hygienic point of view, then his protectors will always be favourable with him and he will avoid the negative energies deriving from a dead body and a marriage.

A person born in this Mewa, whether male or female:

As a sign and influence of his past live, in this life he will probably separate from his parents early and will make a perjury to his father and uncle. He will need to change his house. If he is the first child of the family, then he will be easy to grow up. He will suffer from the competition and the jealousy of his father's side relatives. He will be nice and gently speaking but inside of strong character. He will have a cold mood and will talk a little but significantly. These are the symptoms of his past life influence.
Present life:
While young, he will suffer from various problems as a consequence of his birth having brought some obstacles to his parents, relatives, friends, or to the property.

He has done his job to the best of his capacity, but he will obtain very little appreciations. If he is a religious practitioner, he will have powerful psychic energy. He will like meat and, by nature, will be very nervous and aggressive. Even if he shows kindness to others, he will get a negative response. He will make other people happy but very little satisfaction will come to him.
Character: It is said that even if people eat hundred tastes contained in the food, still they do not feel satisfied. He has done the job with full energy but his work has not been finished at all. He had a precious respect of his friends, partner and children, but he has not got a good fortune to stay with them. It is said that a single is like an arrow.
As a consequence of a fratricide committed by one of his ancestors, his character will be influenced and turn into a strange one so that he will care of his work in the morning and will become careless in the evening. He will possess an unchangeable mind and a powerful speech.
He will be separated from his parents and will miss a bone in the head, so his property and life will be instable; it is said: if the iron palace has no doors, the king will be lifeless and if a cock is put under the dust it will spread all the dust in the space.

The karmic forces and influences of past live in his present character: this person loves sleeping and has a big and brave heart. His belongings are instable. Signs of these influences could be birthmarks on his leftside leg and on the lower abdomen. As a consequence of his birth, his family lost the Yang (prosperous).
Character: He will be greedy and tricky. Without properly knowing the religious and spiritual practices he will like to show his knowledge. If he is a man, he will be a little talkative; if the person is a woman, she will suffer from losing her husband early. He will not be humiliated by upper class people, but he will get humiliations from the lower people. People hidden in the shadow will be his enemy in the future.
There can be the danger that by speaking he will separate from his partner, husband or wife. He is a person who always changes his mind, he does what he wants and is difficult to be influenced by others. He is ambitious and difficult to satisfy. Spirits always try to interfere with him and this brings unsuccesfullness in his work. He did good and kindness to others, but he will receive blames by other people.
People will not let him go into a high position and he can not stand a lower position. He is a person easy to deceive and sometimes blames and criticisms will deceive him. He is a person who is expecting the good results coming from his past live.
His ancestors are appearing from the polished surface of a sword; they have been successful to hold the place of his generation, but because of this, his ancestors were killed or died under a knife or another weapon. From his father's side, some members of his family have been separated from the family or have been in poor situations.

Among his children, there will probably be problems of internal organs or swallowing, skin disease or oedema, hemiplegia or epilepsy.
Children: This person is like a tree with many leaves and little fruit; similarly, he is a man with many marriages but few children.
Wealth: This person has a good divine protector, which however went away because of his negative and contaminated works and therefore the Yang (prosperous) of the property and wealth has been stolen by a hDre or an enemy. Consequently, his wealth is instable like an illusion or like the vapors of water.
Life span: The life span is fixed around fifty years, with three obstacles.
Next live: In his next life he will probably be reborn as the daughter of a cannibal or as an elephant or as a ptarmigan (mountain bird)
Pacification: If the person make a very generous gift and recites the Mantra of Vajrasattva around ten thousand or one hundred thousand times and if he builds a statue of Vajrasattva, he will be reborn in the West with a different [than oriental] language as a daughter in a rich family. As a sign of this happening he might have a birthmark on the back ribs, arms or on the pelvic area.
Spirits: Just after his birth, spirits Dre-wo and Sen-mo provoked him. During his life he will get a provocation from a Sa-srin and a kLu-srin. Also, a kLu-srin and a Gongpo are his protectors, who help him to be protected from the negative influences.

Advice: Always he will have to pay attention to contaminated places, like dead bodies, marriage parties and and grudges. This person has to make a Naga puja and need to pay attention to .Nagas; if not, they will provoke him in the name of this contamination and he get a Naga disease.

Practice: The suggested practice is that of Shakyamuni Buddha called the diamond vehicle (Dorje Chopa) (Prajnaparamita), cutting the vajra. 
Past live: In his past live he was born in a barbarian country, then he was born in the heaven. Because of the influence of his past live, there could be mole signs on the right leg or on the right chick.
Present life: He is a child who has been blessed by the Deva of Tushita, therefore he is said to be the son of a Deva.
Character: He is slow, profound and little talkative, but inside he is strict. He will hold two residences and will be protected by a high spirit. He will have a white complexion, a sharp nose and a big ego.
He will gain respect from people because he is the jewel of the world. Even if he himself is engaged in negative matters, he is under the protection of a high God and will get sympathy from people and few difficulties in his life.
Even if he gets a sickness, it will be easy to cure, especially in the later part of his life he will be happy. It is said that water is coming larger when it is nearly to stop, the lamp is getting brighter when it is nearly to finish, the sun is getting warmer when is nearly to set.
Even after dying, the ritual ceremonies of death will be properly performed by his children. He is a good person and has a good protector, who is like a good earthen pot with an even better handle (it means that his protector is a very good protector). He will be good in handicrafts, intelligent, with a sharp mind, but sometimes he will be easy to perjury and speak unrelated things.
He will be well learned and with a good faith for the spiritual life. Noble people will love him and lower class people will be against him. There will be danger of disputes between him and his son and this can be used by other people to disturb his family.
If he is a spiritual master, then he will be a respectable person, but he will have a great tendency and susceptibility to grudge just by a little mistake.
In general there will be good health, even if he gets sick, he will easily be cured. Because of his grudge, the people will start to have negative feelings towards him and because of this energy, sometimes he will get angry and restless.
As a manifestation of his protectors becoming unhappy, he himself will become nervous without apparent reason. He will be speaking without subject, running without reason and without object he will like to beat: this will happen to him.
Children: His portion is fixed to three or six. He has the fortune to have good children and to become a successful lawyer. Also his children may become successful lawyers.
Children: He will become wealthier in the later part of his life.
Life span:Life span is fixed to fifty years with three obstacles.
Next life: Probably he will be reborn as female human being.
Pacification: If this person makes a Buddha statue, then he will be reborn as a sculptor or a spiritual practitioner, after then he will be reborn as a Deva in the heaven. Signs indicating his future live appear as a mark in the left thigh.
Spirits: The village protector War God and King spirit will protect him and he will have to make propitiations to them. Negative
spirits: there will be a danger that protectors angry with him and hGondre and King spirit spirits from neighbour people can be harmful to him.
Advice: There will be only one danger: he should be very cautious not to grudge towards relatives or others. If the person is engaged in this, the spirit of grudge will provoke him, and this can be destructive in the future. Therefore, be aware about grudge.

Mewa: 9 

Color: Red 
Element: Fire 
Direction: South 
Length of Life: 73 years with five difficult periods. Birthmark: On face, neck or left-leg. 
Practice: Suggested practice is that of Manjushri, the development of the mind and intellect. 
A person born in this mewa is the son of a Deva physician.
Past live: In his past live he was an underground spirit dMu, then he was born as a dog in a rich family, then as a shaman practitioner, then in his last life he was the son of a heavenly god's physician, therefore this person is said to be blessed by the great physician of the sky.
Present life: He is the person who is holding (metaphorically) seven holy-hook flowers in the right hand and seven in the left. If he does not separate from these flowers, he will not need to depend on anybody. Even if his parents are poor, he will be rich: it is the result of his own fortune.
If he separates from these flowers, he will break his Yang (prosperous) and will diminish its power. The consequences will be: if the person does not possess a rich property, then his relatives will turn into enemies; if he is a female, then no harm will result, but if the person happens to be a shaman or a Buddhist or a spiritual practitioner it will be even worse for him.
Character: In general he will have a white and open mind with a big jealousy and a strong desire for the property. If he does not dry his Yang (prosperous), then he will be happy in the later part of his life. From a black material a spirit will possibly provoke his children. To prevent all negativities, a Yang (prosperous)-sgrub ceremony should be performed. If he does not separate from the Yang (prosperous), no problem will occur for a mouthful of food and a handful of work.
Enemies will arise from where he never thought before. Hundreds of men will be rolling the arrow and hundreds of women: will be flapping the wools against him [ that means everybody will be very angry with him]: therefore the man will wander around and the parents will miss the bone of the head. There is a big possibility that his relatives will become his enemies and that he will become a public focus.
Noble people will love him but lower class people will hate him. In his past heritage very precious jewels or antiques were lost and this caused him to lose his Yang (prosperous), but his latter part of life will be full of Yang (prosperous) and will boost with the oil of fortune. He is a man who has given up the religion of others and escaped from his father's religion and is at present devoted to a very strange religion.
He is a person who needs to spend a lot of money, and is also an emotive person. In short, during his parents' and his own life he lost Yang (prosperous) of men and properties, therefore his property will be instable like dew, which appears and easily disappears. The first part of his life will be difficult, but the latter part will be happy and rich. His Yang (prosperous) exits among the animals.
Life span is 70 years with five obstacles.
Next Life:
Next life, if he is not careful in being involved in negative actions, he will be reborn as a dog, a Monkey or as a poor woman.
If the person makes a Manjusri statue and recites his Mantra, he will be reborn as a son of a rich family in the West or he will be reborn as a rich, miser person or in alternative, he will be reborn as a god dwelling in the sky clouds. This shows in some signs, like having a mole or a fleshy mark on the heard, on the face, on the neck, on the back or on the left side leg.
Spirits: Mountain dwelling spirit and the son of a sMan-mo will protect him and a spirit who dwells in a mountain water or in a small forest will provoke him
Advice: If he keeps animals, a Yang (prosperous) propitiation will recover and collect his Yang (prosperous)'.
Thank You.

Guru Rinpoche’s Day (10th day of 5th lunar month) 20th June 2021

Tomorrow is Guru Rinpoche’s Day 


On the tenth day of the fifth month (in history), the tīrthikas of southern India causedgreat harm to the teaching of Buddha, through vast display of magical powers. But our Guru Rinpoche smashed them to dust along with their gods and guardians, and raised the victory banner of the teaching of the Buddhas. Guru manifestoed as Guru Sengé Dradok.


In the fifth month, if you pray to Guru Rinpoche all harm from obstacles, enemies and döns is pacified, and the objects of your wishes are brought under your control.


Today we are very fortunate to get access to yet another Mind Terma of HE Terton Mingjur Dorje Yantse Trulku Trashi Palden (14years old), Guru Rinpoche’s Soldep.  Trulku Rinpoche has shared to me.


These profound new prayers meant for the 10th Day if recited will bring immense blessing to you and to all sentient beings. New Termas are very effective to current era.

རྣལ་སྨྱོན་ཁྲག་འཐུང་རྒན་པོས་མཛད་ཅིང་ གཡང་རོང་ཤེལ་བུམ་ནག་པོས་ཡི་གེར་བཏབ་པའི

༄༅། །གུ་རུའི་གསོལ་འདེབས་ཡིད་བཞིན་ནོར་བུའི་ཕྲེང་མཛེས་བཞུགས་སོ། །།འཆི་མེད་ཚོགས་ཀྱི་རོལ་གར་ཡང་ཟེར།


དེ་ལྟར་མོས་གུས་དང་བཅས་གསོལ་བ་བཏབ་ན་དངོས་གྲུབ་འོང་བར་སྔར་གྱི་ཆོས་རྗེ་སརྦ་གུཔྟ་སོགས་ཀྱིས་གསུངས་པ་ཡོད། བདག་རྣལ་སྨྱོན་གཏེར་སྟོན་དྲི་མེད་ཀུན་བཟང་གླིང་པ་བཀྲ་ཤིས་དཔལ་ལྡན་ནམ། དུས་མཐའི་སྔགས་རྒན་འཆི་མེད་འགྲོ་འདུལ་རྩལ་རྡོ་རྗེ་མེ་འབར་ཞབས་ཀྱིས་སྨྲས་པ་ལགས་སོ།། །།
གུ་རུའི་གསོལ་འདེབས་ ཡིད་བཞིན་ནོར་བུའི་ཕྲེང་མཛེས།

Thank you Trulku Rinpoche

This prayer to Orgyen Rinpoche, one that invokes him and is appropriate to this day and age, was composed by Pawo Lerab Tsal (Cheyol Rigdzin Chenmo) at Lhundrup Teng in Dergé, following the instructions of Kyabgön Rinpoche.

Cultivate Generous Thought and practice giving gifts to the Sanghas.

The Buddha once explained that it is a meritorious act even to throw away the water after washing one's plate with the generous thought:...
