A long distance trip 2: “FOX and BUNCH of GRAPES”

In the morning 24/05/2020 we got out the hotel after long rest. I was driving slowly and was contemplating the scenery on both sides of the road. The view was so great to couldn’t express, no words! The weather wasn’t very hot, a bit cool; made me feel comfortable. So I think that our mood sometimes depends on weather. As we as know the weather is irregular so we must learn exercises with keeping in balance and in rewarding attitude. This is a meditation of Pure Mind Yoga. Meditation isn’t only the sitting in room, in pagoda. Purpose of Meditation is transforming the mind in a positive way in the orbit of Dharma Buddha. It don’t concern only body, speech but mostly with the mind.

The weather wasn’t very hot, a bit cool

The view was so great to couldn’t express, no words!

When I was thinking I forgot time and space, so I arrived Phan Rang city but I didn’t know until Mật Nhị Khang spoke : “Guru, we are at centre of city!”. The  Mật Nhị Khang’s voice woke me up from thinking. Then I look for many hotels but didn’t find any of its. It was easy at city Phan Thiết but it is difficult to find in Phan Rang city. In short, I found one suitable hotel and got the keys in to my room. I see that servants here were unprofessional, they’d better smile. Although it wasn’t expensive but I fetl uncomfortable.

This city is famous for very hot weather and many Chăm people live here. But specially I was interested in fresh green vineyards, what make grapes’ products. The same in Dharma. After a long time practicing, Buddhist gradually have an assents, for example: in which there are seven treasures including faith, morality, contemplation, modesty, self-respect, respect for others and discriminating wisdom. We were invited into its by a woman who sell grapes (green and red). She took us to grapes garden, showed me green grapes. It made me interested so I took some souvenir photos. Than I bought some grapes’ products for presents to disciples Ha Noi and Hai Phong.

In the evening, my disciples in this city waited me at cafe The Sea on street Yên Ninh. I couldn’t meet them because my article was finished but then was deleted by my IT’s mistakes. Then, Mật Nhị Khang has tried to help me recover the article for 2 hours, but fail. In my mind, I guessed that Mara has harassed me. Finally, I had to write one more time. I think that every practitioners on the path to Enlightenment have this experience. I remember about fables “Fox and bunch of grapes” to remind myself.

I had to write one more time

Mat Nhi Khang had dinner after 2 hours trying to recover the document

I met my disciples after a long time, in which there are Christians. Maria Thuy Tien has got married, and Mat Phe Ro is college student, Mật Văn Pháp going to get married.I was happy to hear that. Because of much writing efforts I was tired and early came back.  I hope that I don’t have a nightmare .

I met my disciples after a long time

May all sentient beings attain the happiness of Buddha’s nature.

May Covid 19 pandemic will be end soon.

    Dear holy Guru,

    I am so moved by your efforts and your compassion towards all beings to finish this article after being harassed by Mara.

    I feel more deeply your noble sacrifices for the enlightenment of all beings. Your big endeavours and strong will to fight against Mara made me admired and respectful. From the bottom of my heart, I would like to show my deep gratitude to you for your guiding us on the path of enlightenment.

    I am delighted to praise your writing skill, especially the word using with its extensive and exact vocabulary, detailed grammar, and verbs that aptly expressed subtle shades of meaning such as “wasn’t very hot, a bit cool”; “asset” and “treasure”irregular” and “keep in balance”; “look for” and “find”; “easy” and “difficult”;  and I am impressed with the hidden meanings of the fables “Fox and Bunch of Grapes” and “I hope that I don’t have a nightmare”.

    I have learnt that Meditation of Pure Mind Yoga is transforming the mind in a positive way in the orbit of Dharma Buddha, no attachment on appearance like sitting in a room or in a pagoda with wandering mind. In addition, I am so interesting in you linking of the grapes’ products with the assets of a Buddhist including faith, morality, contemplation, modesty, self-respect, respect for others and discriminating wisdom. So simple and wonderful! If Buddhists take good care of their Dharma tree with Guru devotion, diligence in Dharma practice, they will get the holy fruits of the seven treasures.

    Finally, the fables “Fox and Bunch of Grapes” give me much contemplation. The auspicious fruit from Buddha Dharma is so “sweet” and “delicious” but it is too high for many Buddhists to reach, because they do not have right method to gain it. The reason is that they do not have the wisdom and skillful means like Song Nguyen Tantra House shown by your six marvelous spiritual methods.

    Thank you so much for your valuable lessons.

    May Guru and your consort have good health and live long for the sake of all sentient beings.

    May all sentient beings attain the happiness of Buddha’s nature.

    May Covid 19 pandemic be soon over.

    Dear Guru thanks for sharing this article. I was waiting eagerly to read this article on your second trip of journey. Felt happy to see you finally getting a suitable place to halt for sometime and meeting some of your previous desciples after a long time. Lucky are they to see you and receive your blessings. Thanks to Mat Nhi Khang for being with Guru in this long journey. Also good to see grape yards and grape products.

    Holy Guru,

    I bow my head before your lotus feet!!!! Thank you for sharing this article “Chronicle Long Distance 2: Fox and Bunch of Grapes”. It was so nice to read another teaching written in English by you! I really like the points you made in this article. I had never thought of it that way before but you are absolutely right, If the weather outside is sunny than I feel happy, energetic, playful, and in a good mood but, if it is snowing or foggy outside I start to feel depressed and lazy! I don’t know who Mara is however, in the last couple of weeks I have had similar situations on more than one occasion. I would be into writing a comment and to me it felt like something was really moving in me and everything was “clicking in my head” (meaning I felt like I was understanding what the discourse was teaching) and I would be close to finishing and somehow it would get deleted. After that happens I get discouraged and don’t want to write another telling myself “I will do it later.” So I push through the discouragement and rewrite it then.

    I know that your teachings are starting to change the way my mind thinks and perceives things. I would have not been so fast to rewrite my comment after it being deleted no matter how short it was. I know this might sound like a small matter but to me this small change is very beneficial and I am so grateful for you! You truly are a wonderful, compassionate, kind, loving, wise, and diligent Guru. Thank you for your guidance.

    May our Guru and his consort live a long and healthy life for the sake of all sentient beings

    May all sentient beings achieve the happiness of Buddha’s nature

    Dear Holy Guru,

    I have rejoiced to read your article “Fox and Bunch of grapes”. I admire your writing skill and speed. After a long drive, Guru have given us the new article with beautiful scene and precious lesson. With your skillful pen, I feel like I was there, saw amazing sceneries with my own eyes and enjoyed the chill wind through your delicate words. Once again, I praise the beneficial Pure Mind Yoga’s meditation, keeping in balance and in rewarding attitude. With this modern and magical method, we can practice easily any time any day and transform our mind to positive stage in the orbit of Dharma. I bow to your strong will, generosity and Bodhicitta, you wrote new article before taking a rest, you overcome all difficulties to post this letter and then met disciples. But you never complaint about tiredness or any obstacles, you had enjoyed and delighted with the joy and happiness of disciples in Phan Rang.  You work continuously for the sake of all sentient beings. Furthermore, your message is so valuable which is the guideline and reminder for all of us “every practitioners will meet the challenge on the path to the Enlightenment but if we keep strong will, faith and keep going, we will conquer the challenges and continue on the path to the Enlightenment. You are the stunning example for us to follow.

    I pray for your Dharma trip to be successful. I sincerely pray for the health and longevity of Guru and your consort for the sake of all sentient beings.

    May Covid-19 pandemic will eliminate soon.

    May all sentient beings attain the Buddha’s nature happiness.

    Dear Guru,
    I have experienced an unprecedented feeling when reading your new article. It was actually a colorful mixture of sensations including the excitement with the beauty of the scenery, the pleasure with cool weather, the uncomfortableness with the unprofessional attitude of the hotel staff, the enjoyment when visiting the vineyards … and especially, the touching with Guru’s compassion, your effort to fight against the harassment of Mara and give us valuable Dharma lessons.
    I couldn’t help but feel moved when I saw the image of Guru diligently using the laptop to write articles. The space in this hotel is absolutely not as comfortable as being in your Tantra house and how could it bring you a pleasant feeling when sitting with such a low table? But even in the middle of the night with a lot of tiredness, you still tried to complete the article for us in the best way. I really don’t know how to express my feelings other than “no words” for your noble endeavour.
    Dear Guru,
    The harassment of Mara in your Dharma trips is not something new to us, but your positive attitude and your calm reaction towards this situation always make me feel admired. You are indeed a bright example of Dharma application for us when facing with difficulties and challenges in life. Thank you for one more time reminding us the lesson of keeping mind in balance and rewarding attitude. I will try to remember the interesting fable “Fox and bunch of grapes” for not falling into grievous failure in the future.
    I happily praise for your deep compassion and Bodhicitta. I just feel so proud to be a small pupil of Guru. I think that your disciples in Ha Noi and Hai Phong would feel so happy for knowing that you prepared lovely and meaningful presents for them.
    I am so grateful for your precious teachings in this article. I will be waiting for your next chronicle.
    I sincerely pray for your Dharma journey to be successful from the beginning till the end.
    May Guru have good health and live long for the benefit of all sentient beings.
    May covid 19 pandemic soon come to an end.

    Dear holy Guru,

    I am delighted to read this article. I really admire your effort in writing this article, which allows me to have another chance to see many beautiful scenery. It feels like we were going along with you on this journey. I am interested in your linking of grape’s products to the Buddhist assets, which are seven treasures, including faith, morality, contemplation, modesty, self-respect, respect for others and discriminating wisdom. I understand that in order to get fruit in the enlightenment path, we should take care of our “green vineyards” and cultivate it with devotion towards Guru. 

    And your incident of the IT mistake and your remind of the fables “Fox and bunch of grapes” make me think about the lesson behind it. I understand that in life as well as on the path to enlightenment, there would be challenges or obstacles. But we should learn the lesson from these challenges and obstacles, then have the right method to overcome them. And by practicing Yoga Thanh Tri, I am able to keep my mind in balance and in rewarding attitude, transforming my mind in a positive way in the orbit of Dharma Buddha, instead of making up reasons to blame for the challenges that I might face. 

    Thank you Guru for your valuable lesson.

    May Guru and your consort have good health and live long for the sake of all sentient beings.

    May the epidemic of Covid-19 come to end soon.

    May all sentient beings attain the happiness of Buddha’s nature.

    Dear Holy Guru,

    I am happy to read this article. Once again I enjoyed your piece of artist soul that delivered the beauty of life in every little things and moments. I really like the fresh green vineyards and the lesson which was drawn upon that when we practice Dharma diligently, we are going to accumulate seven treasures. The journey may be interrupted by unexpected obstacles, then a strong mind to let things go and overcome difficulties will keep us moving forward like footages from the story “Fox and bunch of grapes”. I once again appreciated that thanks to your teachings, we developed a growth mindset to face any situation positively. Whenever I face difficulties, I always remind myself of your great example and it gives me strength. I sincerely pray for your Dharma trip safe and successful. I am happy to see you in pictures.

    May Guru have a good health and longevity for the benefit of all sentient beings.

  12. Dr C H Lakshminarayan says:

    I bow my head at the lotus feet of Guru.

    I was anxiously waiting what would be the Dharma messages in the second day’s Guru Dharma journey ?

    OH ! After reading the second article of his Dharma journey ,I came to know it is also pregnant with many more dharma messages .!

    The head line Guru has chosen ” Fox and bunch of grapes is a well known moral story taught in our school days. The fox after jumping high up so many times to catch and pick up a bunch of grapes hanging at a bit higher level in the garden, having failed in its attempt went away saying ” Grapes are sour ” !

    Similarly, some lay disciples who enter Song Nguyen Tantra House who couldn’t Not cope up to the moral and spiritual  standards of Buddha Tantrism philosophy which stands always high in Status, finally turn their back and go away sometimes with bad remarks or jealousy.!

    On the contrary,  Guru teaches by his own example, when Mara troubled him when he was writing the article ( Mara’s nature is always like that. He has also troubled me like this many times) by small mistake, it disappeared and faded away when it was nearing completion from the system and could not get back written documents in spite of manipulation and struggle  Mat Nhi Khan, disciple cum driver who accompanied and stayed with Guru for two hours !

    Noteworthy point here is  Guru has re-written the same with tremendous patience and perseverance to send the same to his disciples to teach dharma on line.

    The dharma message Guru gives here, A sculptor, to make a Buddha statue, has to give many many hammer strokes  to a block of Stone to make it into small pieces out of which he selects a required size piece and carves and shape it into a Buddha statue with his skills and efforts which will be worshiped now!. So one should not give up in the middle while achieving a goal !, however obstacles may intervene in the middle. Try and try again , at last you Will be successful ! Song Nguyen Tantra House  built by Guru is the best example for this.!

    Likewise, to gain Enlightenment, continuous efforts of cultivation of Dharma practice is essential and must.! It is unlikely and very very rare, a falling fruit from a tall tree will fall into the mouth of a person sitting under the shade of that tree.!

    Another dharma message in this article is while Guru is driving car in the road slowly  and lost himself enjoying the beautiful landscape of Nature’s beauty, Avalokitheshwara  in the form of his disciple cum driver, Mat Nhi Khang alerts Guru saying, ” We are now in the center of the city”!. Guru is thus awakened and comes to his normal senses.!. This supports the dictum, ”  Avalokitheshwara helps and protects those who help themselves”, thus preventing any accident or disaster .!

    Another important message Guru gives is about ‘ Meditation’ in this article that Meditation should not be time bound and constrained but your life itself become Meditation.! Like Guru’s life concentrating only on Buddha’s Nature and nothing else !

    Last but not the least,  Guru is not selfish at any time.His bodhichitta  Provokes him to buy some grape products to present to the disciples of that place to make them cheerful and joy !

    Sarve Janaha Sukhino Bhavanthu.

    May all be :” sarva bhotha hithe rathaha”

    Om Mani Padme Hum .

      Dear Tantra Nirvadeva,
      I feel joyful when reading your comment, a kind of inner bliss when meeting the one who can understand me. You can see many interesting new angles, which other learners have not recognized. I am happy with the four dharma messages you have gained from the article. I believe that the jewel in your mind may be brighter than others so that you can absorb the practicality of Buddha’s teachings; for instance, the life itself becomes meditation. It is the life concentrating only on Buddha’s nature and nothing else.
      Thank you for giving me to enjoy the bright angles in your mind.

    Dear Guru,

    I’m delighted to read your second unit “Fox and bunch of grapes” of the chronicle long distance. It’s “so fast so furious” even though you are now writing in English. I’m more than surprised and admire Guru’s English.

    Then, learning that Guru was spending long day transporting and writing the next part for our Dharma gift without taking a rest, I’m so touched by Guru’s compassion and hard working for the benefits of us and other sentient beings. Guru’s consistency in rewrite another article in English after the harassment of Mara was a great example for us. I don’t know what to say to thank you Guru. I asked myself not to be lazy but consistent in learning and practising Dharma following Guru’s teachings.

    I love the lively pictures of Guru’s Dharma trip and happy with vajra brothers in Ha Noi and Hai Phong for the presents from Guru. I also enjoy the meaning of the fable “Fox and bunch of grapes” that other vajra brothers mention in their comments.

    Thank you Guru for your trying so much for our Dharma gift by this article. I pray for your smooth and successful Dharma trip.

    May Guru and your consort good health and longevity for the benefit of all sentient beings.

    Dear holy Guru,

    I’m delighted ro read your new article “Fox and bunch of grapes”. Thank you so much for sharing this priceless article and valuable Dharma lessons. Although Mara usually has been harassing Pure Mind Master in the journey spreading Dharma’s light, but Guru never  stops or gives up Bodhisattva’s footsteps for the sake of all sentient beings. I  devote myself to you and admire your wisdom and bodhicitta. I have understood that meditation in Pure Mind Dharma is transforming the mind in a positive way in orbit of Buddhas’ Dharma, so I shouldn’t attach to external appearance like sitting in a room, a particular place or in a pagoda. It’s so interesting when Guru links the “bunch of grape” with Buddhist’s treasures (or asserts like faith, morality, contemplation, modesty, self-respect, respect for others and discriminating wisdom. I really like this linking, it helps me understand more that, if I regularly nourish Guru devotion (Bodhi seed), diligently practice Dharma under Guru’s instructions, I will receive sweet fruits (like seven treasures and Enlightenment).

    May Guru and your consort live long and have good health for the sake of all sentient beings. I pray for your Dharma journey smooth and successful.

    Dear Guru

    I am so excited to follow your trip through chanhtuduy.com. It’s great to see so many beautiful pictures of you and dharma brothers in the middle of green nature. I can see the joyful smiles on the face of my dharma brothers in Ninh Thuan province and happy to know that they again had a chance to enjoy the pure energy of Thanh Tri Master. I am so delighted to see your generosity again towards disciples and followers by buying gifts for disciples in Hanoi and Hai Phong during this trip.

    Looking at the bunches of green grapes shining in sunlight on a vine, I think about the vital role of Guru in the cause of cultivation of the practitioners. In order to have such bunches of ripe and succulent grapes, the farmer needs to know which methods of farming, fertilizers or ways of protection from harmful insects. Similarly, to attain “the fruit of liberation”, the practitioner should rely on the Guru who knows thoroughly what needed to know, what needed to practice, and have methods of teaching and practice that are suitable with the learner’s faculty. Of course, the disciples themselves need endeavor from their side. I am moved to see your enthusiasm towards your followers and disciples, though the Mara fox were trying to “steal the grape”. But nothing, no one, even the Mara can impede or stop the flame of Bodhicitta and wisdom of Thanh Tri Master, so that now the disciples all over the worlds can read and learn Dharma from the 2nd article of his trip to the North. Thank you for bestowing us the valuable Dharma lesson.

    May Guru and your consort have health and live long for the sake of the sentient beings. May your trip be safe and sound.

    Dear Guru,
    I have read this article. I see new place is Phan Rang, where there are many vestiges of the Cham people. I admire and touched your effort in trying to finish the article after being harassed by Mara. Although you have a long way all day, because of your compassion, you sent us this valuable Dharma gift.
    Through your photos, I see bunches of green grapes, fresh, reminds me of the story “Fox and bunch of Grapes” – a very famous fable that contains many life philosophies. People often have many desires to achieve but beyond their ability, and at that time, they often blame like foxes blame green grapes. This makes me think of so many people who want to reach the door of Liberation but have no way to come. Thank you for giving me of meaningful lesson.
    May Guru and your consort have good health and live long for the the sake of all beings.
    May all sentient beings attain the happiness of Buddha nature.

    Dear Holy Guru,

    I’m so delighted to read the second part of your series “Chronicle long distance”, once again your article makes me feel like I was there on the trip with you. I’m glad that the weather was nice during the day, however, your words taught me that we should not let our mood depend on the weather or any other things. We should learn and practice to keep balanced in our minds under any circumstances, which is the meditation of Pure Mind Yoga.
    Additionally, I really love the title of this article “The Fox and Brunch of Grapes”, considering the grapes as the fruits of achievement and we are the foxes, and sometimes we got harassed by the Mara which makes the grapes seem to be out of reach, however, the result is not depend on how these grapes are far away from our reach but depend on how we try to overcome the challenges and obstacles to obtain the fruits. We can choose between 2 options, one is just like the fox in the fable, quitting with the thought that the fruits are too green to eat and the other option is to keep calm and try the best to get through the difficulties. And here in the Song Nguyen Tantra House, we are provided with your marvelous spiritual methods as the ladder for us to reach out to the fruits of liberation.
    I am so touched to see you working with your laptop to rewrite the article for the sake of all beings after being harassed by the Mara, it’s really uncomfortable for anyone to sit and type in that kind of chair and table, especially at your age after a long day on a trip, but you still sacrifice yourself to bring this article to all beings. I’m totally speechless when I see that picture, there’s no word to express my gratitude to you for your sacrifices to show us the path to enlightenment.
    And I’m also moved by a detail when you bought gifts for your disciples, you always care a lot about us wherever you go, please take more care of your health too.

    May Guru and your consort have good health and live long for the sake of all beings.

    May your trip will be safe and sound without any problems from beings and non-beings.

    I’m looking forward to reading the next article on your trip.

    Om Mani Padme Hum.

    Dear Holy Guru!

    I admire with your fast writing English version article. Only two days, and traveling over 400 kilometers the Guru had spent more time sharing what you feel, what happens, and what will be done for more viewer, reader, and disciple. Although something may get an obstacle, but final win success. And now, we are a chance to know drama practice by meditation not to stay in the pagoda, this become our mind refreshing in balance status. Sometime may you get some problems that cannot imagine, but you need activated passive as after rain comes sunshine.

    I pray the Guru and his consort long live for the sake of the human being.

    Dear Guru!
    I am delighted to read this article. Thank you for giving us a new dharma gift.
    I was moved by your Bodhicitta when I read this article that even Guru had to write one more time because of a computer problem. I understand that, Guru did not take care of the tiredness of the long road and no rest to give us the dhrama gift. Today, I understand more about the obstacles that every practitioner may encounter. The old fox, despite being arduous, will never have a bunch of grapes because there are the wise and brave bee keepers guarding day and night. I understand that mindfulness connecting to Guru, the Three Jewels, the devotion are the weapons for us to overcome and overcome…
    May Guru and your consort have good health and live long for the sake of sentient beings.

    Dear Holy Guru,

    I’m grateful for the article. I learn that my mind can be like weather, changing often and unexpectedly. That’s why I need to practice Pure Mind Yoga to develop a balance mind and rewarding attitude.

    Sometimes I act like the fox in the fable. Now I learn from the Guru experience. I should not relinquish my Dharma goal when facing hindrances. I should let it be and keep going forward.

    Dear Guru,

    I am delighted to read this article.

    I am so happy to have chance to following Guru footstep on Dharma trip by Chanhtuduy.com’s screen. I am thankful and admire your skillful’s pen, which makes me feel the mood that I am there with great speech by Guru’s English. Through this article, I understand and will learn by heart the Guru’s teaching that the benefit of Pure Mind Yoga is keeping in balance and rewarding attitude. This helps us “transforming the mind in a positive way in the orbit of Dharma Buddha”. It is not only sitting in room, in pagoda as normal way, but also concern body, speech and mostly with the mind. Once again, the benefit of Pure Mind Yoga been applying by Guru through the IT incident by Mara. Hence, I have a lesson from that I will overcome all difficulities I can face when I have the right method as the Guru have done. I will keep in mind Guru words that ” every pracitioners on the path to Enlightenment have this experience” so that I only keep strong obey all Guru’s teaching. Likewise, if I want to get fruit of liberation on the path of Enlightenment, I should take care the “Green vineyards” with mindfulless, awakeness and pure devotion towards Guru. I am grateful to Guru for valuable lesson.

    May Guru and your consort live long and have good health for the sake of all sentient beings.

    May Dhrama’s trip of Guru always be safe and successful without any trouble from beings and non-beings.

    May all sentient beings attain the happiness of Buddha’s nature.

    Dear Holy Guru!

    I’m have read your article” Fox and bunch of grapes”. The title of article reminds me the fables that a fox try to catch grapes but it can’t by any way. Then it think that it’s no use catching the grape when it’s sour. I think about the lesson behind it.

    I’m delighted to enjoy the pictures the disciples with happy smile when they have been learned Pure Mind Yoga from Holly Guru. I feel your generosity towards the disciples of Ha Noi and Hai Phong by buying gifts for them.

    Linking of the grapes’s products with assets of a Buddhist including: faith, morality, contemplation, modesty, self- respect, respect for others and discriminating wisdom.

    I pray for your safe traveling and enjoy wonderful time during your travel.

    Dear H.H. Guru

    You presented the beautiful articulation about nature. We are the part of this nature, and without Mother Nature, we are unable to grow up. Guru, you defined the purpose of mediation in this article beautifully, meditation is a process to positively transforming the mind with associated the orbit of Dharma propounded by Buddha.

    While reading your article, I am feeling in my mind that I am reading a new modern Jātaka (stories of Buddha’s previous births) of my Guru.

      I am happy to recognize that your mind has been transformed dramatically and marvelously. I feel that I have not deserved the stories of Buddha’s previous births in Jataka you mentioned. However, I will try my best to preach the Dharma.
      As the teaching written in Jataka that practitioners should renounce what is needed to renounce in order to rely on the Kalyanamitra. You have translated my articles into Hindi and left comments, which are considered as the way to accumulate merits through this action of Bodhicitta.

  43. Mật Định Thuần says:

    Dear Holy Guru,

    I really enjoyed reading this article “Fox and Bunch of grapes”. I have just collected meaningful moral through your article. With this tale, the widely accepted moral associated is “It is easy to despise what you cannot get”, it mean, we refuse to accept our incompetency and begin to speak ill of the unachievable. I associate to the True Story of Ah-Q, with Ah-Q character who always self-talk and self-deception even when faced with extreme defeat or humiliation. In the orbit of Dharma, I aks myself the way that I overcome difficulties and keeping in balance. Note, that in this trip, you wrote new article with much of computer problem. Before taking a rest, you overcame all difficulties to post this letter without tiredness or any obstacles. Finally, I admire your English writing skill and I look forward the next article.

    I pray for your Dharma trip to be successful.

    May the Holy Guru and his consort have a good health and live long for the sake of all sentient beings.

    I am grateful and admire Guru’s efforts in writing despite the harassment of Mara. Thanks to this, we have been bestowed a priceless lesson from the shining example from Guru about the strong spirit to overcome all obstacles along the path of dharma practice. Contrary to the image of the cunning fox looking for every excuses for his incompetence from the fables, here, through this article, I am rejoiced to admire the majestic image of a mighty Lion King bravely walking on the path of benefiting all sentient beings, leveling all challenges, difficulties or dangers, even Mara must give up before Him.

    I am delighted to praise virtues and merits of holy Guru.

We are lucky when having chances to learn right methods from Guru helping keep in balance and in rewarding attitude. I pray for all of us will always nurture the Guru devotion, keep awakeness, mindfulness, attention, and diligence in dharma practicing to harvest the fruits of liberation, to always follow Guru’s step on the journey towards ultimate Enlightenment.

    Dear Holy Guru!
    I am delighted to read your new article in English. I am so admire Guru’s English with writting skill and speed, although a long driver and the harassment of Mara. Thingking about the fable “ Fox and bunch of grape” in your article, I realize that sometime we have looked like the Fox in that story. During practising on the path to Enlightenment, we will meet with many obstacles. Instead of exerting all our strength and the faith in Guru, we think same that “ the bunch of grape is so green, not delicious”. That thinking only indulges in sophism for our ugly habbits as lazy, ungrateful…So we never get the holy fruits of seven treasures from Dharma tree without Guru devotion.
    Thank you so much for your meaningful article.

    Dear holy Guru,

    I am happy to read this next chapter of your journey. Thank you for always finding the chance to bring valuable Dharma lessons to us through the simple things that you encounter during your trip.

    Thanks to your lesson, I understand that just like the weather, a room, a pagoda, or any other physical things are just the external factors that we cannot control. Therefore, if we let these external factors influence our Dharma practice, we wouldn’t go far on the path to liberation. We have to rely mostly on our minds and find a way to always keep our minds in the state of being awake and peaceful.

    With this being acknowledged, I am grateful for the Dharma methods which Guru taught me, which helps me truly keep my mind in the right orbit of liberation in every condition. It doesn’t depend on where I go or what I am doing.

    I pray for the long lives of Guru and his consort for the sake of all sentient beings,

    May all sentient beings achieve happiness of Buddha’s nature,

    May the Covid-19 pandemic soon be no more.

  59. Mật Nhất Nguyên says:

    Dear Holy Guru,

    I’m grateful for the article. It was written in an evening, after a long trip…it tells me that the Guru always think about His disciple and all sentient beings. While many worldly people get on long trips to forget life and have a break from all their works, the Guru continue to bring us lessons and continue to do his Bodhichitta work on every journey.

    Despite the harassment from Mara, the Guru finished the article in English. I’m embarrassed to wrote such a simple comment in respond. It reflects my little knowledge of what the Guru has given to me. Dear compassionate Guru, please forgive and purify my wrong-doing.

    I have heard that the Guru have to face and overcome harassment from Mara for many times, but the Guru still continue. Because of that, today I am in touch with the Dharma. The Guru’s continuing effort is an example for me to become more diligent in my practice and to be brave when facing hardship, so I won’t fall into the false thinking of the fox in the fable, “the Fox and the Grapes.”

    I pray for the Guru’s safe and successful journey. May the Guru and His Consort have good health for the benefit of all sentient beings. May all sentient beings attain the happiness of Buddha’s nature.  May all sentient beings attain the happiness of Buddha’s nature. May the Covid-19 pandemic will soon be over.

    Dear Guru!

    I’m delighted to read your article. Even though we are far away from you, we always feel like we are close to you and following your footsteps arround the country, as well as following your footsteps to enlightenment.
    The story “Fox and Bunch of Grapes” mentioned by Guru in the article makes me think that: bunches of grapes are a metaphor for Dharma, fox is a metaphor for practitioner. Fox is excited to see bunches of grapes and find ways to eat them. After unsuccessful efforts, the fox left but blamed that the grapes were not ripe. Similarly, the practitioner realizes that this is the true Dharma and this is a great place to practice Dharma. The practitioner tries to study Dharma, but after a short time of trying and failing to achieve results, he/she discourages, declines faith and decides to give up halfway. But they do not blame themselves but blame others, something else for their failure. I understand that I should not be like that fox. In order to achieve the goals in this life and the next, we must persevere to the end. Despite difficulties and challenges, we must not be discouraged.

    Thank Guru for writing a great article for us.

    May Guru and your Consort have good health and live long for the sake of all sentient beings.

    May all sentient beings attain the happiness of Buddha’s nature.

    May the Covid 19 pandemic will be over soon.

    Dear holy Guru!
    I really enjoyed getting the second Dhama gift from Guru.
    Thank you, Guru for continuing to give us more valuable lessons than jewels through this second article. Your writing always shows me the spirit of “Dharma is life” so every scenerys on your Dhama trip brings us dharma lessons. From the images in fresh green vineyards we drawn upon that when we practice Dhama diligently, we are going to accumulate seven treasures. The second lesson I got from the article is: “ every practitioners on the path to Enlightement will be harassed by Mara” so if we realize that on time and turn to the orbit of the Guru, Buddha, Dharma, Sangha, then we will not fall into the trap of consciousness like the fox in the story of “the fox and bunch of grapers”.
    I pray for your Dhamar trip to be successful from beginning to the end.

    Dear Holly Guru
    I’m delighted to continue reading the second article: Chronicle long distance 2: “Fox and Bunch of Grapes”. And I was so surprised and admired to know that this is your third article in English in just two days.
    Your article helped me to understand the advantages of the Thanh Tri Yoga meditation method that you have taught us: Transforming the mind in a positive way in the orbit of Dharma Buddha. For example, in the face of Mara’s harassment, you quickly identified and transformed into the inspiration for a great article. Also, the anomaly of weather is a good opportunity for us to learn exercises with keeping in balance and in rewarding attitude in all cases.
    Through this article, I had the opportunity to read the parable “Fox and bunch of grapes.” I wish I would not become this foolish fox, not to effort and miss a precious opportunity.
    Thank you so much for your valuable lessons. May your Dharma trip be safe and successful.
    May Guru have good health and live long for the sake of all sentient beings.
    May all sentient beings attain the happiness of Buddha’s nature.
    May Covid-19 pandemic be soon over.
    Om Mani Padme Hum.

    Dear holy Guru,

    I am delighted to read your article: Chronicle long distance 2: “FOX and BUNCH of GRAPES”.

    Your article helps me to understand that Meditation of Pure Mind Yoga is transforming the mind in a positive way in the orbit of Dharma Buddha, which isn’t only sitting in a room or in pagoga.

    When we practice your Pure Mind Yoga, we have the opportunity to accumulate seven treasures of a Buddhist including faith, morality, contemplation, modesty, self-respect, respect for others and discriminating wisdom.

    Thank you so much for your teaching and guidance. I really admire your English effort. I am looking forward to reading your more articles.

    May you and your consort have good health and live long for the benefit of all sentient beings.

    May your Dharma trip always be safe, successful and without any trouble from beings and non-beings.

    May all sentient beings attain the happiness of Buddha’s nature.

    Kính bạch Thầy
    Con đã đọc bài 2 :” Con cáo và chùm nho” rồi ạ.
    Con hoan hỉ tán thán công hạnh trí tuệ và bồ đề tâm của vị Thầy vì lợi lạc của chúng sanh, vẫn miệt mài lao động giải thoát ban cho chúng con những bài pháp qúy báu.
    Con cảm tạ ơn Thầy đã cho chúng con xem những hình ảnh đẹp của Phan Rang, nơi có nhiều người Chăm sinh sống và đặc biệt là vườn nho tươi xanh. Mặc dầu bị ma chướng cản trở, vị Thầy vẫn hoan hỉ không ngăn ngại thời gian, mệt mỏi sau chặng đường dài vẫn quyết tâm viết tiếp bài pháp khác bằng tiếng Anh khi toàn bộ bài viết trước Thầy đang chờ đăng bị biến mất hoàn toàn. Qua bài pháp, con hiểu là đối với 1 người thực hành pháp, trên hành trình giác ngộ tối thượng khi gặp vấn đề khó khăn hay bị ma chướng thì đừng dễ dàng bỏ cuộc hay kêu ca phàn nàn vì không đạt như ý nguyện. Hình ảnh ” Con cáo và chùm nho ” trong chuyện ngụ ngôn được vị Thầy nhắc đến là 1 bài học qúy báu nhắc nhở chúng con nên bình tĩnh vượt qua khó khăn, chướng ngại với tâm quân bình, thái độ hân thưởng để không bị lệch qũy đạo chánh pháp và để an lạc đời này, cực lạc đời sau. Con cảm tạ ơn Thầy đã ban cho chúng con bài pháp lợi lạc và ý nghĩa.
    Con thành tâm cầu nguyện cho sức khoẻ và sự trường thọ của Thầy Cô vì lợi lạc của chúng sanh.
    Con cầu nguyện cho tất cả chúng sanh thành tựu hạnh phúc Phật tánh. Cầu nguyện cho dịch bệnh Covid 19 sớm tiêu trừ. Om Mani Padme Hum.

    Dear Guru !
    I am delighted to read your article “Chronicle long distance 2:”Fox and Bunch of Grapes”.

    Your article helps me to understand that Pure Mind Yoga , meditation isn’t only the sitting in room, in pagoda. Purpose of Meditation is transforming the mind in a positive way in the orbit of Dharma Buddha. It don’t concern only body, speech but mostly with the mind.

    The story of the FOX and the BUNCH of GRAPES helps me understand that no matter what difficulties I have, I cannot give up, success has no place for those who are discouraged and regressed. On the path of study, there will be times when we have certain difficulties but if we try and persevere, we will definitely overcome.

    May you and your consort have good health and live long for the sake of all sentient beings.
    May the suffering of all sentient beings be pacified.
    May covid 19 pandemic soon end.
    Om Mani Padme Hum.

    I am so excited to read the second letter of Guru from your Dharma trip.
    The article remind me of the first experience about the opstruction of Mara. At that time I could not realize that the obstacles which I encountered were harassed by Mara. Until I thought of the Guru and received timely encouragement from Guru, my mind awakened and turned directly. Thank you Guru for helping me to overcome obstacles from Mara and give me a valuable experience.
    Thank you Guru to give me the valuable lessons
