Letter to disciples and learners: THE RAIN

Somebody told me that he hates the rain because it is boring and he fed up with watching the rainfall. I know how he feels, but it is normal for me. Maybe it depends on in his mood, as a well-known poet once said that when people do not have a good mood, they won’t be able to see happy scenes. By the way, I want to tell you about what has happened at Tantra House Mat Gia Song Nguyen.

The rain

It rained hard all the morning, I was watching it delightfully; sometime I think it is my hobby. I can order my drink but I can’t order it to rain. I know that we should not be demanding with the weather, but I always enjoy watching the rainfall. I realize that rain comes regardless of my intentional interest. I can’t expect it to come in advance, I can’t guess how and when the rain comes or leaves. I understand that once the rain starts, it will certainly finish. However, once the suffering of sentients beings started, nobody knows when it comes to an end.

I was watching it delightfully; sometime I think it is my hobby.

When looking at the rain, I think about the tears of sentient beings who kept trying in vain not to cry. You may remember the Buddha’s teaching in the Sutra of Connected Discourses that said: “..The flow of tears we’ve shed while roaming and transmigrating is more than the water in the four oceans”. I realize that the tears cannot be a helping hand for us in our hard times. These are opportunities for challenging ourselves in times of adversity.

The flow of tears we’ve shed while roaming and transmigrating is more than the water in the four oceans”

In my opinion, Buddhist practitioners are optimistic people, so we are not afraid of any hardship. Why aren’t we afraid of nothing? Why aren’t we easily get disappointed? Because we have a the best protector in samsara: Avalokiteshvara Bodhisattva! He always listen to us with thorough understanding, he usually helps us in every time, every place. It is not coincidence that the Buddha praised Avalokiteshvara Bodhisattva: “…the rain continues for days and nights in many months, in many years and in many lives, I can count the number of the drops of the rain water one by one, but I cannot express the amount of all the blessings and virtues of Avalokiteshvara Bodhisattva”.

How can you access to advices, assistances, guidance from Avalokiteshvara? By obeying your Guru because his teachings more important than Sutra or Tantra. How to meet Guru regardless of distance and time conditions? You must read and comment on chanhtuduy.com. By doing so, you will keep accumulating merits. The more articles, the more merits to be cultivated. It is like the rain that falls at the right time. It works automatically under the blessings of Avalokiteshvara. That’s why I always try to write for you in both Vietnamese and English.

I always try to write for you in both Vietnamese and English

I am not saying that you had better hurry or only spend your time on chanhtuduy.com. If you don’t have any free time, you just need to read and comment once a week. It is not a demanding request, what I meant to say is not to forget my advices. I don’t force you to follow me, but I think reading and commenting makes sense while you determine to learn Pure Mind Dharma. I want to finish my writing by the teaching of holy saint Thogme Zangpo ““Life-long friends and relatives must eventually bid farewell. Wealth accumulated with sweat and tears must eventually abandon. Consciousness, a guest who lodges in this body, must eventually depart. Do not attach to this life. That is the practice of all Bodhisattvas..”.. (from the Thirty-seven practices of all the Bodhisattvas)

“Life-long friends and relatives must eventually bid farewell. Wealth accumulated with sweat and tears must eventually abandon. Consciousness, a guest who lodges in this body, must eventually depart. Do not attach to this life. That is the practice of all Bodhisattvas..”

  1. Tantra Midhita says:

    Dear honorable Guru, I am writing to say, not only did I read, I read aloud to my wife.

    She interpreted as such “Calm down, take a look around, breathe, do not take small things for granted.”

    I interpreted similar, in such:

    “Rain is well, and so it rains, to count the rain is to count the rice by grains. Be certain things happen, and last for immeasurable moments, enjoy in everything, the nature of True Dharma. Peace is a virtue, and to be at peace with changes no man can alter, is better than trying to pray to change them at an altar”

    My prayers, when I pray these days, are never for my self, but for the benefit of others. I do not pray in specific, but rather, I whisper to my Heart… in there It Hears.

    Thank you venerate Guru.

    To all sentient beings, may we achieve the glory of enlightenment as One.

    Om mani padme hum.

    Dear Guru,

    Thank you for giving us another more article both in English and Vietnamese. I enjoy every writing from you together with precious lessons to us regardless of the language.

    This writing is about rain. Again the object is not new, but the new, meaningful lessons it conveys. I used to hate rain as it’s gloomy and inconvenient for out and about. Now watching rains remind me of the sufferings of sentient beings and praying for their relief.

    I used to cry when things do not go along with my opinion, but it’s very long ago. Since I started practising Pure Mind Yoga under your guidance, I no longer let my tears fall easily just because of the mediocre mundane cause called the eight worldly winds: fame-disrepute, praise-blame, gain-loss, pleasure-pain. If my tears falling, it only can be the tears of gratefulness towards Guru, Buddha, Dharma and Sangha.

    The more understanding of the teachings of the Buddha through Guru’s guidance, especially thanks to the castle of chanhtuduy.com, I find myself more peace and less fear, less disappointment or afraid of hardship. Now when facing any difficulty, the first thing I’ll do is praying to Avalokiteshvara Bodhisattva through Guru’s channel. I believe that following Guru’s teaching by reading and commenting on chanhtuduy.com will resolve the issue and help us overcome all the challenges. Not only me but many other Dharma brothers have experienced this many times.

    Thank you Guru for your teachings.
    May Guru good health and longevity for the benefit of all sentient beings.
    May the Covid-19 pandemic will come to an end soon.
    Om mani padme hum!

  5. Cao Diệu Diệu Hằng says:

    Dear holy Guru,
    Thank you so much for your wonderful article. I would like to show the gratitude to Guru for the meaningful and profound teaching: only practicing Dharma can help beings end the tears of Samssara.
    Even though the tears of all sentient beings are so much that they can cover all four oceans, the rain water of blessings from Avalokitesvara Bodhisattva is even much more and His compassion is big enough to eliminate all tears of humans. However, nothing will happen if we do not practice Dharma, especially building the foundation of enlightenment- Guru’s devotion. I have learnt clearly that the rain water of Avalokitesvara Bodhisattva”s blessing covers all paces and places. But if we do not have the channel of transmission, we cannot get any, even a single drop. Therefore, following Guru”s reaching and guidance is the wise approach to the enlightenment. His holiness Dilgo Khyenste Rinpoche wrote in “excellent path to enlightenment” that:”Through devotion, our minds and the Guru’s mind become one. Why is this practice necessary? Because there is not a single Buddha in the past, present, or future who has achieved or will achieve enlightenment without relying on a spiritual teacher. Whichever of the nine vehicles of the Buddhist teachings we practice, we have to rely on a spiritual teacher, receive his or her teaching and practice according to his or her instructions. There is no other way.”
    Thank you so much for your kindness, compassion and wisdom to guide us on the path to enlightenment; you always encourage us to practice Dharma with several skillful means to get easy to access to the true self.
    May you have good health and live long for the sake of all sentient beings.
    May Pure Mind Dharma spread all the corners all over the world to end the tears of all sentient beings thanks to Guru’s Bodhicitta and wisdom.
    May all sentient beings end all suffering and it’s causes.
    May covid 19 pandemic be over soon.
    Om Mani padme hum.

    Dear holy Guru,
    I have read your letter “The rain”. I also like to watch the rain, but that’s simply the feeling of a dreamer. Through the words of the Guru when watching the rain, I feel the more compassionate heart of the teacher who always thinks for all sentient beings, to the tears, to the suffering of sentient beings like the rain from the rain. from day to day, from year to year, from life to life. And only practicing the Dharma can help us feel free of suffering because we have Avalokiteshvara Bodhisattva who always listens, understands and helps us. Since I started practising Pure Mind Yoga under your guidance, the rain washed away my ignorance, I feel more peaceful and happier in life. Thank you for giving me a valuable lesson.
    May Guru good health and live long for the sake of all sentient beings.
    May all sentient beings to have the happiness of Buddha nature.
    May the Covid-19 pandemic be over soon.

    Dear Holly Guru,
    Thank you for giving us a wonderful article both in English and Vietnamese. By reading the article I have learned that all people feel bored when seeing the rain, but people that are students of Holly Guru don’t feel bored anymore and it is normal. I haven’t hated rainy day as before and now watching rainning reminds me the suffering of sentient beings and praying for their relief.

    Besides, Holly Guru advised us practising by reading and writing comment on Chanhtuduy.com because I can find more peace and less fear in my life.
    May you have good health and live long for the sake of all sentient beings.
    May all sentient beings end all suffering and it’s causes.

    Dear Guru,

    I am grateful to Guru for giving us another beneficial dharma gift. Your smooth English letter with the ingenious using of questions and answers, affirmations right after negatives helps us get meaningful lessons with excitement and joyfullness. Your letter really amazes, and once more time, inspires us to make more efforts in upgrading ourselves in lives, especially in learning and applying the Pure Mind Dharma under Guru’s guidance.

    I really enjoy this beautiful article. Your writing about the rain, in the one hand, is as soft and flexible as water. From the raindrops to the tears of sentient beings in four oceans, then the blissful rains which come from Avalokiteshvara Bodhisattva, Guru leads us go through worldly feelings, samsaric sufferings,… towards the Buddhist optimists thanks to having the best protector, everywhere, everytime. On the other hand, the writing of Guru brings us thoughts of the strength and endurability of water, reminds us about keeping the firm faith and perseverance in dharma practicing. I understand that whenever we still keep the firm faith and devotion towards Guru, still keep obeying Guru’s teachings, then we still have the source of blessings from Avalokiteshvara Bodhisattva which never runs dry, will protect us and bring us the successes in lives and achievements on the journey to liberation city, like the speech of Geshe Kharak Gomchung, “We need to realize that Guru is like the source of all mundane and supramundane achievements”.

    Thank you Guru, for compassionately paying attention and taking care of our spiritual destinies. Thank you for your non-stop efforts in bestowing us chances to meet Guru regardless of distance and time conditions by the articles on chanhtuduy.com, in both Vietnamese and English. I keep in my mind your advices, I will try to diligently read and comment on the website, because I am a Pure Mind Dharma practitioner following Guru’s steps.

    I pray for Guru’s health and longevity for the sakes of all sentient beings.

    Pray for the covid 19 pandemic soon over.

    Pray for all sentient beings achieve the happiness of Buddha’s nature.

    Om Mani Padme Hum.

    Dear Guru,
    I am happy to read this article.
    I am delighted with the next bilingual article on the topic of “Dharma is life, life is Dharma” through the lesson of “The rain”.
    I joyfully praise Guru’s deeds not only simple in dharma semantic but also in switching to English, the common language so that sentient beings in the world have the opportunity to be “closer” to the Dharma, to Guru.
    Through the article, I understand that with the rain, I don’t know when it begins or ends. But with the rain of Dharma I can know the beginning and the end because it belongs the devotion to Guru, own practice of Dharma. I will keep in mind the compassionate Guru’s guide on how to access to advices, assistances, guidance from Alvalokiteshvara. It is through the “obeying your Guru because his teachings more important than Sutra or Tantra”. This action is so simpler when we read and comment on Chanhtuduy.com. The more articles we read, the more merit we accumulate, “like the rain that falls at the right time. It works automatically under blessings of Avalokiteshvara”. It helps us gradually washing away the suffering from our minds.
    I am grateful for Guru’s kindness, compassion and wisdom to guide us on the path to enlightenment.
    May Guru will live long and good health for the sake of all sentient beings.
    May all sentient beings end all suffering and its cause.
    May the Covid 19 will end soon.
    Om Mani Padme Hum.

    Dear Guru,

    I am delighted to read the new letter in both English and Vietnamese written by you.

    I am really impressed and inspired by your great effort in learning English to give us, the disciples and learners all around the world meaningful articles.

    Through the image of the rain, you keep teaching us lessons related to Dharma. The article reminds me about the Buddha’s teaching: “the Samsara is surrounded by immeasurable suffering”. I know that, every person who lives in Samsara always has to face a lot of sufferings. Sometimes there is happiness. But worldly happiness is short-lived because of impermanence. On the contrary, as your teaching: “once the suffering of sentient beings started, nobody knows when it comes to an end.”

    After realizing that, I feel happy and lucky to be one of your disciples, a Buddhist practitioner. I don’t need to be afraid of any hardship, don’t need to be sad or disappointed when something doesn’t go the way I want. Because I understand “All are blessings from Avalokiteshvara Boddhisattva through Guru delivery channel.” I understand that, the easy and only way to be able to access the advice, assistance and guidance from Avalokiteshvara is to obey Guru’s teachings. Where are the teachings? They are all presented on chanhtuduy.com. I will keep in mind and follow your teaching: “You must read and comment on chanhtuduy.com. By doing so, you will keep accumulating merits. The more articles, the more merits to be cultivated. It is like the rain that falls at the right time. It works automatically under the blessings of Avalokiteshvara.”

    I am grateful for your teaching!

    May you 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 end soon.

    Om mani padme hum!

  12. Tantra Nashita (Sweden) says:

    Thank you so much for sharing this article dear Guru.
    I really love the rain because it is a real blessing for us. If we would not get any beautiful nature, fruit and stuffs. Look now how it is in this world because of our human beings mistake, the earth is drying, we are destroying. We should be better taking care of the gift we got. We don’t own this planet. We are here just for limited time. Shouldn’t we treat the nature well then?
    Anyhow, as I have been reading earlier and learned from an article that it is very rare that we became to human beings. If I remember it right?

    I enjoy more and more to read your articles here and I am learning for every single day. Thank you so much for the opportunity for reading and learning today again dear Guru.

  13. Cao Diệu Mật Từ says:

    Dear Guru,
    I am delighted to have read the article “Letter to disciples and learners: The rain”. I am so impressed with your inference from life to Dharma lessons through the rain phenomenon. Indeed, I can imagine how the sufferings of the sentient beings in a variety of shapes can be compared to the amount of water from the four oceans. There are tears that we can see physically, there are also tears that are hidden inside. If we were not to meet Guru and being taught right Dharma by Guru in this life, we are definitely immersed in the ocean of samsara tears. Thanks to Guru’s bodhicitta, we are no longer suffering, our tears are stopped not only this life, but also in our upcoming lives. Accordingly, I understand somehow why the Buddha said that it is impossible to express the amount of Avalokiteshvara’s virtues. It is similar to a Guru who scarified his life to liberate other sentient beings. Guru share the same pattern of thoughts to save sentient beings from sufferings, and therefore is the representative of the Buddha and Bodhisattvas in this samsara, so that Guru is the delivery channel for us with the Avalokiteshvara. I am determined that I will keep your advices in mind, keep practicing Pure Mind Dharma diligently in order not to waste this precious human life. I am sincerely grateful that Guru shared this article with us and offered us a meaning lesson.
    May Guru have good health and longevity for the benefit of all sentient beings.
    May all sentient beings attain the Buddha’s nature happiness.
    May Covid19 pandemic end soon.
    Om mani padme hum.

    I bow my head down to you

    Dear Guru!
    I’m happy to read your letter.
    Through your letter, I feel that the suffering of sentient beings is too much. The tears of sentient beings have fallen like heavy rains, do not know when to come and do not know when to end. But when one is following in the footsteps of the Guru and practicing the Dharma teachings, his/her tears belong to samsara will gradually decrease to no more. They will no longer suffer. I understand that we do not need to despair because there is the blessing of the highest protector of Samsara, Avalokiteshvara Bodhisattva, through the channel of the Guru. To be connected with the advices, assistances of Avalokiteshvara Bodhisattva and receive his blessings, the simple and effective way is to be obey the Guru. One of the ways to meet Guru regardless of space and time conditions is to read articles and comment on chanhtuduy.com.
    I thank Guru so much for writing this letter for us.
    May Guru have good health and live long for the sake of sentient beings.
    May the Covid 19 pandemic will be end soon and all suffering of sentient beings will be eased.
    Om Mani Padme Hum.

  17. Cao Diệu Nhất Nguyên says:

    Dear Holy Guru,

    Thank you for the lesson.

    The sufferings of all sentient beings exist everywhere, even the rain can remind me of it. On the other hand, Dharma also exists everywhere and even the rain can remind me of the blessing of the Yidam. Both facts make me treasure every moment I have to practice the path to liberation. And the best practice is to listen to the Guru, read and comment on the articles regularly. I really look forward to a day when all sentient beings are free from all sufferings, and they attain the happiness of Buddha nature.

    Thinking about impermanence will help me become more diligent. If one day I felt lazy to practice it is definitely because I have forgotten that I can die tomorrow, or I have been indulged in accumulating wealth — I must forgot impermanence and the tears of my parents from infinite past. I pray to the Yidam through the Guru that I will become more diligent.

    I’m grateful for the Guru’s guidance on the path to liberation. I pray for the good health and the longevity of the Guru for the benefit of all sentient beings. I pray for all sentient beings to attain the happiness of Buddha nature. I pray for the COVID-19 pandemic will soon be over.

    Om Mani Padme Hum.

  24. Tantra Dharma Sunyata says:

    Dear Holy Guru,
    I have had the good fortune to read through your letter titled’The Rain’.Permit me to observe as follows:
    1The letter takes the view that there there are a number of perceptions to’Rain’ namely: as something pleasant to some people;as something discomfort able to others;as something whose occurence and duration cannot be predicted;as something analogous to human ‘Tears’.
    2.From an African viewpoint,’Rain’ is perceived as blessed Fri above; as blessing to make the land more fertile to produce rich harvests;as blessing to cool down the land in times of strife;as blessing to fill up the streams, rivers,springs, oceans,seas such there is water for sentient beings to drink,for aquatic beings to replenish/rejuvenate their lives etc. Yet,if it rains over plentiful, destructive floods result causing erosions, destruction of roads and crops.
    3.Putting the above two perspectives together,the paper surmises that the goods of this world such as Fame,wealth,power are as transient and non-everlasing as the ‘Rain’.More importantly, the blessings of Dharma,the Blessings of Avalokiteshvara Budhisattvas are infinite, eternal, ever enduring,more predictable/certain and by far more numerous than all the atomic elements of rains,waters, streams, rivers,springs and 40 oceans.
    4.Our Guru states categorically that merits are cultivated from Avalokiteshvara Budhisattvas via the Guru by reading and commenting on articles/letters in chanhtuduy.com such more Merits are earned with each additional reading.What is more,our Guru Compassionately counsels that disciples could read and comment on at least one article per week having decided to engage in Pure Mind Dharma.
    May all sentient beings benefit from our Guru’s compassion.
    May the Guru ever continue to enjoy good health coupled with Long Life for service to all sentient beings.

    Dear Guru thank you for sharing this beautiful article. Yes the blessings of Avlokiteshwara on sentient beings are much more if one devotes themselves completely to Avlokiteshwara Boddhisattva. Chantuduy.com is like a valmakirti or library with Dharma articles upon reading these articles one gets chance to understand dharma and by commenting their pure thoughts they receive spiritual merits. It makes them get closer to Guru and Avlokiteshwara and understanding about dharma from different angels.

    May Guru live long to uphold Dharma.

    May all beings be free from suffering and get enlightened.

    May pandemic situation of Covid 19 come to an end.

    I bow before your lotus feet
    For more than two months I am not having a good health I was suffering of cough cold and fever. It kept on repeating thrice after a few days of interval. My family members were of the opinion, I am suffering of corona. In the crisis period my wife was with me. When I become better she went to her job place and I became alone. Amid the struggle with me and my ailment I was not alone . My Guru and the Buddha was with me . I kept on posting on the Face book Buddha Vachana mainly Dhammapada, Metta Sutta and many more along with the photographs of our holy Guru and the Buddha as well as commenting on the Buddha’s photograph such as Namo Buddhay or Om Mani Padme Hum as I was not able to Read the Articles of Chanhtuduy.com For last three days I am having stomach problems. Taken together these caused my strength loss. I have grown very weak and often it becomes difficult to move even. I think that most of the times I am on the bed.
    A few days back my friend sent me a Guru’s sharing ‘The Rain’. Though it is very small article but very thematic, pregnant with deep meaning. While lying on the bed I read it. Thought started generating. I went into the past and found my Granddaughter reciting the poem Rain Rain go away. Come again another day. Little Joni wants to play. Splendid smile spread on my lips. Because of one of my Dhamma friend also wanted that the rain should go away, though for different reasons. The poem had the reason to play but inviting again to come again. But my friend has disliking for the rainy season. It has got a different meaning in Buddha’s terminology. When our holy guru says I like rain as the rain gives much of pleasure it conveys a new meaning in the light of Buddhist wisdom.
    In Buddhist tradition Rain means the miseries of life, the attack of Mara to drag one to the world of sin earned by worldly pleasures and prompted by lust, hate, greed and delusion. And such persons are scared of the torments as that will be fruition of their works done under the veil of lust, hate, and delusion. This is the meaning of Rain in Buddhist tradition. This meaning of Mara has got a genuine expression in the Dhaniya Sutta of the Suttanipata.
    In fact Dhaniya is a rich cow- herd, having worldly plenty and pleasure. He thinks that his hues wealth will help him ward of the miseries. And he boasts of that before the Buddha. Buddha tries to make him understand that who is endowed with wisdom, firm in morality and meditative, the rain of Maara cannot touch hi. Rather he likes the rain and invites it to rain cats and dogs as it will fill pleasure in his heart. Here I would like to quote a few verses for the perusal of our Holy Guru.
    Making Dhaniya understand The Buddha says “I am free of anger, free of stubbornness, I am abiding for one night on the bank of the river, my house is uncovered, my fire of passion is extinguished. Therefore O sky if you like if you like you may rain havily.
    Bhagava further says “I have a well constructed raft; I have passed over to Nibbana. I have reached the further bank, having overcome the torrent of passion. There is no further use of the raft. Therefore O sky if you like rain havily.
    These are the few lines quoted from Suttnipat, though very many verses are there this clearly hinges to the fact that our Holy Guru is well established in Buddhist morality, endowed with Buddhist Wisdom earned the Buddhist meditation, that’s why he is neither of Mara and its allegory rain as he is perfect in all the three Sila , Samadhi and Prajna. This article also gives us the message to be firm in Buddhist wisdom as our Guru is firm. Then the either the rain or rain of suffering will never torment us.
    Om Mani Padme Hum
    May this universe be free of COVID 19
    May all sentient beings attain the Buddha Nature
    Long live our Holy Guru
    I bow before your lotus feet.
    With Warm Regards
