Beyond Labelling….

December 19, 2010

Socialists/Marxists told me that: – you are not leftist because you are Buddhist

Buddhists told me how can you be a leftist?

I smile: is this matter what and who am I?

I am the believer of Compassion and Conscience that go beyond any kind of labeling!

My master used to tell us:

“if you have guinea boddicitta intention and aspiration in your mind and conduct to walk on Bodhisattva path. Any- obstacles appearing along this path are great materials for you to
do your practice and training ground.

However, the helping hands will always come, in order to assist you can serve humanity in a true way.

Soon you had accomplished your mission, don’t cling to it.

The blessing and helping hands appeared is for supporting you to help others. But not to cling on it.”

Lately i posted sentences from a Tibetan refugee friend in my face book.

I again recalled about him and words he told me when we met in Katmandu.
2 Dec 2006 was the time we met and i was visited the crowded Tibetan refugee reception center in KTM to interview them.

Whenever i am having pains or feeling sufferings.
I will recall his word.. even though he was only 21 years old..
Too young indeed to endure these pains.
Also recalled the scene of those refugees lying on the bed and floor at the center.

They had taught me deeply about the meanings of sufferings and overcome fears and sufferings.

If you feel that life is such uncertain and painful of going through some unbearable hardship.

Please read these comments from my other friends who posted their comments on my face book.

I like the both responses of my another friends : Bern and Yen Chu.

View from my Tibetan refugee friend:
My Tibetan refugee friend told: I am born to be tough and endured all hardship.

we walked across the Himalayan mountain to across to Nepal
for saving life.

Many were unable make it, dead during the journey or fell ill after arrived.

What else i will afraid anymore after able to walk across the death and alive along the escape journey!

Nothing will fear me anymore!

View from Bern 菜头
A good friend who was once imprisoned under Pol Pot’s regime
told me, she once lived in fear under the muzzle of Pol Pot;

but then decided that she wanted to look into the eyes of whoever that wasgoing pull the trigger.

She has not fear de…ath ever since she madethat decision.

Face our fear is what I have learnt from her.

View from Yen Chu:
Consider thinking this way.

Whatever hardships I am encountering noware the training given by our Master, who have chosen me but not the others, because he think I am the one who is worthy enough to receive
the training and becoming another. teacher to help the others, who will be going through the same hardships like I do.

The sufferings of fluctuating mind….

The mind which is free from hope and fear alike the lake and sky- no stain can remain on its surface....(Source of Photo: Tibet, Tan Yoon Heng)

The mind which is free from hope and fear alike the lake and sky- no stain can remain on its surface....(Source of Photo: Tibet, Tan Yoon Heng)

Hope and Fear is the perfect twin -co existence in our midstream
Our mind keep fluctuating between this two directions…

When our hopes are not achieved, we blame others for its failure
When our hopes are achieved, we worry others will take advantage of it

So, we doubt on others intentions when disagreement on our grand plans

The mind stream keep fluctuating such way
Anger, jealousy and sufferings……

why we do prostration?

When we practice full body bow down prostrating in Buddhist practice. Some friends asked: how can we bow down to the “male” monk? How can we bow down to a statue? This is a feudal practice!!

After sometimes, I realized: to bow down is so important, alike we are able let go our self/ego. We are able to put ourselves below others. And, are able to confess our faults and say sorry to others.

Bow down is a skillful means that can train and remind us to abandon arrogance/self clinging/ego.
