Vietnamese version: Thư gửi các trò 212: THANH QUY MẬT GIA SONG NGUYỄN 

  1. Dear Holy Guru,
    I am delighted to read your letter No.212: Song Nguyen Tantra House’s Regulations. Thank you so much for your kindness and compassion to make the regulations for us to follow in order that I am on the right trace of the Path to enlightenment.
    The Regulations help us not only make the responsibility of your disciple but create the wall to protect my merit I have accumulated by following Guru’s words. Following the Regulations when practicing Pure Mind Yoga makes my mind always be awaken in the orbit of Guru, Buddha, Dharma and Sangha; especially the support to free my mind from the sufferings and evil thoughts.
    The purpose of all insight and enlightened understanding is to liberate the mind from the sufferings, and Nivana itself, the goal of the teaching, is defined clearly as freedom from greed, hatred, and delusion. The achievement of this preparatory purification of mind begins with the challenge of self-understanding. To eliminate sufferings I must first learn to know them, to detect them at work controlling my everyday thoughts and life. By reading and commenting the articles on chanhtuduy.com, I can understand the Guru’s instructions and the Buddha’s teachings. It is the antidote, the method to emerge from sufferings and vanquish them. By keeping these regulations and applying them properly, I can gradually wear away the most stubborn inner stains and reach the end of suffering.
    May you and your consort have a good health and live long for the sake of all sentient beings.
    I also rejoice in the good deed of Mat Hong Quang who has translated your article into English. Her translation supports foreign learners to understand the Regulation in Song Nguyen Tantra House and follow them for the sake of self and others.
    May Mat Hong Quang get all wishes and be joyful on the path of liberartion.
    May all sentient beings achieve the happiness of Buddha’s nature.
    Om Mani Padme Hum.

I wish that physically I could make the trip to learn from you in person but my health will not allow it. I will continue to learn from you on here. I look forward to each new article. Om Mani Padme Hum, May you be well for the sake of all and may all of us find enlightenment and continue on our paths

  4. My revered Guru

    I’ve read your letter No.212: Song Nguyen Tantra House’s Regulations. New regulations for readers, followers and disciples at first may seem harsh but in fact they form a steady wall of precepts to protect our little merits from being lost by our laziness or negative doings. These regulations can also be seen as one of propulsive forces to help us be more diligent on the path of liberation. These are sincere words of the Guru for the readers, followers and disciples of Song Nguyen Tantra House for their own benefit. My heartfelt gratitude to you and I will joyfully follow the regulation. Thanks Mat Hong Quang for your great translation.

    May Guru and your consort live long for the happiness of all sentient beings
    May Mat Hong Quang fulfill all legitimate wishes
    May all sentient beings be surrounded by the blessings of the Three Jewels
    Om Ah Hum
