Please pray for a NKT student who committed suicide
« on: May 14, 2017, 08:24:55 PM »
This gentle lady passed away this morning. I didn't know her but it seems from her page that she is very loved and came from a close, supportive community. Seems she even had kids too? Please keep her and them in your thoughts, and offer your prayers that she may take a good human rebirth in a place connected to the Dharma again.

There are a lot of comments on her page about how she had spoken out for help and her pleas had been ignored? I'm not sure how dramatized or exaggerated those comments are but it would be good if the NKT took care of their own, and especially gave them the religious freedom to believe in whatever they want without the potentially harmful consequences that come from ignoring them. Well at the very least I am sure their sangha will be doing a lot of prayers for her.

That being said, it's also sickening how some people will descend on another person's page to make a political statement at the time of their passing. Can't even hold off their rage and anger, and be considerate that others need time to grieve and mourn properly. Trijang Choktrul Rinpoche practises Dorje Shugden very strongly, gives initiations to thousands of people in fact, so would a Dorje Shugden powa be okay by the commentator? :-\ why turn yourself into a shill for Trijang Choktrul Rinpoche when he's the lineage head for a practice you hate so much? Only because you don't like the NKT? We see through your tactics.

Prayer to Be Reborn In The Land Of Bliss (By Je Tsongkhapa)

I pray to Buddha Amitayus, teacher of gods and men. Your excellent activities give endless benefit to beings. Remembering you just once pushes away fear of the lord of death. Your mind always generates compassion towards beings like a mother towards her only son.

Many times the good qualities of the supreme paradise, Dewachen, were praised by Lord Buddha. By compassion’s power and prayers to be born there, I will explain whatever I can.

Blocked by thick ignorance of the points to be abandoned and obtained, the chances for beings to reach a higher life are killed by the weapon of anger. We are locked in samsara’s prison, bound by the rope of desire, and carried away by the great river of karma into samsara’s ocean.

Adrift in sufferings’ waves of sickness and old age, swallowed by the sea monster’s mouth of the ruthless lord of death, and buried under a load of unwanted sufferings, I am unprotected and moaning with depression. My mind aspires to witness a destitute person’s only friend, the Savior Amitabha.

You are accompanied by the great bodhisattva, Lord Avalokiteshvara, and surrounded by a supreme entourage. Please don’t forget your unwavering promise to benefit us, made for immeasurable eons by generating the bodhisattva mind. By the power of that, I supplicate you respectfully to come here through the force of your miraculous powers and compassion, just like the king of birds flies through the deities’ path of the sky.

By depending on the power of amassing the ocean-like two collections of virtue accumulated by myself and others throughout the three times, I pray, Amitabha, that you, together with your two chief sons and your entourage, will stay close to me at the time of my death and protect me. Please, Buddha, may I see you directly along with your entourage. At that time may very strong faith in you arise in me.

May there be no extreme pain at the time of death. Without forgetting, may I remember the object of my faith. At the moment of death, may the eight bodhisattvas come to me with their miraculous power and show me the exact path to travel to Dewachen.

Because of that may I be born from a lotus into the precious pure land of Dewachen with sharp faculties and among the Mahayana race of beings. As soon as I am born, may I retain everything previously learned about concentration, selfless bodhichitta, endless ability, confidence, and so forth. May I achieve immeasurable collections of good qualities.

May Amitabha, his entourage, and the buddhas and bodhisattvas of the ten directions have confidence in me, and may I receive the complete Mahayana teachings, understanding them exactly as intended. Through miraculous power, may I go unobstructed to the many buddhafields, completing all the great bodhisattva activities.

Even though I take birth in the pure realms, may I be drawn by the great power of compassion to go, without obstacles and through miraculous ability, mainly into impure lands.

May I teach the Dharma to all beings exactly as fits each one’s ability. Because of that, may I be able to establish them in the perfect, pure path praised by the buddhas. May I quickly complete all excellent activities and easily achieve buddhahood for the sake of the vast numbers of beings.

One day, when this life’s activities are finished, may my mind become full of faith and compassion from being able to see you clearly, Amitabha, surrounded by your ocean of disciples.

As soon as the appearances of the intermediate state come to me, may the eight bodhisattvas show me the unmistaken path. Because of that, may I be born into Dewachen and then emanate into impure lands in order to save beings.

Even though I may not always be able to achieve such a supreme state through all my lives, may I always achieve the basis of a perfect human form. May I strive at hearing, contemplating, and meditating upon the explanations and realizations of Buddha’s teachings.

May I never be separated from the basis of a human form, ornamented by the seven qualities of the higher realms. In those lifetimes may I always achieve the ability to remember all my previous existences with exact clarity.

Throughout all my future lives may I see samsaric existence as without essence. May I be attracted to nirvana’s qualities. Because of that, through Buddha’s excellent teachings on vinaya, may I renounce the world and enter the monastic life.

When I become a monk or nun, may I not commit any of the natural bad deeds nor break even the slightest of Buddha’s precepts. May I be just like Bhikshu Mitrugpa (Undisturbed), achieving great enlightenment by completely developing the heap of ethics. Also, throughout all my future lives may I exactly understand the way for purely cleaning away the mental afflictions.

Then may I achieve the excellent collections of recollecting everything without exception that I previously learned, including the branches of perfection and holding in mind the words and meanings of the Dharma. May I achieve the pure confidence to teach without obstacle to others I behold.

Also, throughout all my lives may I enter the samadhis called “going courageously” and so forth, may I gain the “ flesh eye” and so forth, and may I achieve the five clairvoyances, such as the miraculous ability to know faraway objects and so forth. May I never be separated from these abilities.

Throughout all my future lives may I achieve great wisdom, which makes me able, through my own power, to discriminate between the points of what should be developed and what should be abandoned.

May I achieve clear wisdom, which is able to discriminate even the subtle details of the mental afflictions and of the pure virtues exactly as they are, not mixing them but keeping them separate.

May I achieve quick wisdom, which is able to terminate without exception all lack of understanding, wrong views, and mental doubts as soon as they arise.

May I achieve profound wisdom, which gives me access to the scriptures of Buddha’s excellent speech, so that without becoming stuck, I may understand the unfathomable depths of meaning.

In summary, with the wisdom free from the faults of perverted wisdom, may I become just like venerable Manjushri with a skillful teacher’s wisdom that keeps a clear understanding of the meanings of the Buddha’s teachings and enables me to perfect all the bodhisattvas’ transcendental activities.

Like that, with wisdom that is great, clear, quick, and profound, may I take care of other fortunate ones with kindness, destroy wrong views, and please the knowledgeable through teaching, debating, and composing scriptures on the various branches of Buddha’s teachings, becoming a completely perfected scholar.

Throughout all my future lives may I be free of holding thoughts that mainly cling to my own purposes, and may I stop all laziness and cowardliness toward the great activities of the bodhisattvas. Then may I become skillful in the bodhisattva mind, which willingly takes on the purposes of others with a brave mind perfectly complete. By that, may I perfect all bodhisattvas’ activities and become just like venerable Avalokiteshvara.

Also, throughout all my future lives, when working for the benefit of myself and others, may I subdue all demons, extremists, and opponents with wrong views through the skillful power that enables me to complete all the perfect bodhisattva ac ti vi ti es, becoming just like the venerable Vajrapani.

Throughout all my future lives, with effort that abandons all laziness, may I complete the bodhisattvas’ activities by first generating the bodhisattva mind instantly and then not wavering from it. Through that great effort may I find incomparable buddhahood, becoming just like Buddha Shakyamuni.

Throughout all my future lives, may I be able to overcome all sicknesses of body and mind that are obstacles to achieving enlightenment. May I become just like the thus-gone Medicine Buddha, just by mentioning whose name one is able to pacify all sufferings of body, speech, and mind.

Also, throughout all my future lives, may I attain whatever length of life I wish for, becoming just like Buddha Amitayus. Even by saying his name one is able to subdue all untimely death.

When obstacles to life come near, please appear to me, Savior Amitayus, and through your four activities, tame your disciples, appearing to them clearly in whatever form is fitting. As soon as your form is seen, may all obstacles to life be extinguished, without exception.

When you appear in whatever form is fitting for your disciples, Savior Amitayus, may we be able to recognize those forms as you, and may a faith that is not artificial and that is unshakably strong arise. Through the power of that faith, may we meet directly with you in the form of virtuous friends throughout all our lives, Buddha Amitayus, receiving direct teachings and never becoming separate.

Throughout all my future lives may I be held in the kindness of a fully qualified Mahayana virtuous teacher, the root of all ordinary and transcendent good qualities, and may that teacher become very happy with me.

At that ti me also, through the power of a strong, unshakable faith toward my virtuous guide, may I only perform activities that please my teacher with all three doors of my body, speech, and mind. May I not do anything that would cause my guide to become displeased for even an instant.

Having pleased my virtuous friend, may every holy instruction be bestowed without leaving anything out, and may I diligently practice. Understanding whatever meanings are taught, may I strive to be able to accomplish them completely. May I not become influenced for even an instant by misleading friends or non-virtuous teachers. Throughout all my lives, may I have reasoned faith in cause and effect, renunciation, the altruistic wish for enlightenment, pure view, and all knowledges entered into effortlessly, experienced without break.

Throughout all my future lives, may the roots of all virtues I perform through my body, speech, and mind serve to benefit others, becoming a cause for their pure enlightenment.

Re: Please pray for a NKT student who committed suicide

There are two issues here:

1. Linda C is gross. She is totally exploiting the death/suicide of this human being to wind brownie points against NKT. The lady who has died DOES NOT NEED Linda's help to get prayers. That should be left to the family and their wishes. How ridiculous and presumptuous of Linda to get FPMT and all to 'pray' for this Linda. This lady is not even connected with FPMT, so that is ridiculous. It is Linda trying to look goody goody against her tirade against NKT. She should just shut up as this is disgusting.

Linda even hopes the biggest Dorje Shugden practitioner and leader, Trijang Choktrul Rinpoche will do powa for this lady? You have got to be kidding. Trijang Rinpoche does not attend anything to do with the Dalai Lama and keeps himself completely away from the Dalai Lama and is branded a Shugden lama and a Chinese paid dog yet she wants him to pray? Obviously because NKT is againt Trijang Rinpoche, Linda now conveniently wants a Shugden lama to pray for someone and some more do powa? Linda has been criticizing Dorje Shugden and the followers for so long now and she conveniently twist things around for her convenience. Absurd. Go on another cruise trip into the sunset and hope we never hear from ya again!

Which one is it Linda? Is worshipping Shugden good or not?

2. NKT is disgusting. Why are they not taking care of their own students. Why do they run around the internet telling the whole Gelug school of Buddhism how they should or should not operate and who they may take as their teacher and yet, they themselves don't take care of their own? NKT has lost my respect and their trolls like the lesbian porn loving Kelsang Pagpa is really doing so much damage to Buddhism.

Glad to find a compatriot in my thoughts here. I don't think Linda has considered how absurd and transparent her request is. Like for example, since Trijang Rinpoche does Dorje Shugden and he's supposed to go to the three lower realms, why does Linda suddenly think Trijang Rinpoche's powa has any power? If she really believes Shugden lamas are evil, and Shugden lamas have no power, isn't she being irresponsible and cruel to Anita's future rebirths by asking Trijang Rinpoche over and over again to do powa because it would be ineffective?

Even children can see how illogical her requests are. Her disgust for NKT is so transparent but then again, I'm not surprised when NKT survivors dealt with so much NKT hypocrisy for so many years.

One NKT student tragically suicided.

Meanwhile, since 2009, 118 followers of the evil dalie suicided, including 26 monks, former monks, and nuns, after being perversely bullied into suicide by the evil dalie and his minions.

With all of NKT's recent mistakes, its records are still way better than the evil dalie's.

Such sad news. She must be really disturbed to take such an action. But whatever has happened, already done and passed. Nobody have the rights to make any negative comments about her nor whoever she is associated to. What we should do is dedicate prayers and merits to her. May she be protected by the 3 Jewels and have the merits to continue practicing Dharma in all her future lives.
Why do people dedicate their merits to all sentient beings at the end of their prayers then turn around and say things that are the opposite of what their motivation was? The whole point of practicing Buddhism is so that we can be kinder, better person before we met the Dharma and advance in our spiritual path. Lets practice and put it into action. Om mani padme hung

Because they are poisoned by the evil dalaite personality cult, which places wrong, blind faith in a criminal above just any Dharma precept.
