The mistake of drinking poison (Nhầm thuốc độc)

I bow my head at the lotus feet of Guruji.
‘Ahimsaka’ was a devoted close disciple of a Guru in ‘thakshashila’ university of India and first in studies being a meritorious student and Guru use to like him very much and love him more for his noble qualities than other disciples coming within his circle for studies.


The other disciples became jealous because of this , and made a treacherous plan to keep Ahimsaka away from Guruji so that they come closer to Guruji and draw his attention towards them !. They raised a false rumours that Ahimsaka has an immoral affair with Guruji’s wife and told to Guruji abut this rumours. Guru was Shocked by hearing this and felt defamed and somehow wanted to finish Ahimsaka and keep him away by some strategy. One day he called Ahimsaka and said, ” Ahimsaka, by now your education came to an end. But it will not be fruitful unless you do ” Guru- offerings” to Guru at the end of completion of one’s studies.So you have to give offerings to me “. Ahimsaka said ” That is right Guruji. Please tell me” what should I offer to you?”. Guru said ,” Ahimsaka ! You have to bring one thousand human thumbs and present to me.”.

You have to bring one thousand human thumbs and present to me

Ahimsaka was aghast and sweating in that surrounding cold climate ! What kind of Guru’s wish is this?. He thought there is some mystery in this. ! Still, it is my obedient duty to fulfill the desire of Guru–so thinking he accepted and went to the nearest thick forest at the border of the Kosala kingdom’s country and resided in a hut well equipped with instruments for murdering passers-by in the forest to cut their thumbs to accumulate them till they numbered one thousand. He made those thumbs into a mala and put it around his neck. From then onwards Ahimsaka became ‘ Angulimala'( anguli means thumb and mala means necklace) !

Ahimsaka became ‘ Angulimala'( anguli means thumb and mala means necklace) !

Here we notice how a Guru instigated an innocent disciple to become a murderer for his personal gain ! and became responsible to the detriment of life of a disciple for no fault of his own.!
While ahimsaka after becoming Angulimala thus spending his days in the forest became a terror and everyone in the surroundings afraid of going to that forest ! . Now Buddha Guru comes on the scene !. Knowing all about this with the sole purpose of transforming Angulimala Buddha goes to that forest and comes in contact with Angulimala. The conversation took place between them is very interesting and all that is not given here. Finally, Angulimala who came to kill with his wepeon Buddha, threw his wepeon outside and prostrate at the feet of Buddha completely surrendering to him. Then Angulmala followed Buddha to Buddha’s ashram , changed his dress to that of saffron’s colour, became a Bhikku and stayed there along with other disciples of Buddha doing prayers, meditation etc.

Angulimala who came to kill with his wepeon Buddha

Threw his wepeon outside and prostrate at the feet of Buddha completely surrendering to him

One day, when he was going for Alms-rounds people of the village thinking that he is the same old Angulimala attacked him and threw stones till he bled a lot and lost one of his eyes as a result.!But inspite of these injuries he did not raise his hands against those people ! Such a tolerance and Bodhichitta he had developed now after becoming a Buddha’s follower. ! When returned to ashram, Buddha and his disciples nursed and took care of him.
Here, we notice Ahimsaka who was induced to become Angulimala ( himsaka) by his first Guru during his study time now totally transformed to ahimsaka( non-violent) bhikku coming in contact with Buddha Guru. !
This Angulmala’s story in the life history of Buddha is heart throbbing and shows how a Guru ‘ s role plays an important factor in shaping the future life of a disciple.!

    I bow my head at the lotus feet of Guru.

    My purpose of writing this article is how a disciple should be very careful in selecting a Guru because Guru is responsible for  shaping the future life of his disciple.!  Hence this famous story was chosen from the life of Buddha! and the original  title given by me is ”  Varieties  of Gurus — A glance” ( Angulimala comes two Gurus in his own life and how his life changed at different times depending up on them !) which seemed to be  more apt than the present title given by the editorial staff at your end that is ” The mistake of drinking poison” which will induce the readers of the article for confusion and it does not suit at all. !This is my humble request to change the title at your kind perusal and discrition.

    Kính bạch Thầy!

    Con hoan hỷ thiện hạnh chia sẻ bài viết: NHẦM THUỐC ĐỘC của đạo hữu Tantra Nirvadeva.

    Qua bài viết con hiểu được vai trò của vị Đạo sư thực sự quan trọng bởi vì không có Thầy thì học trò sẽ không thể biết đến đạo Phật và giáo Pháp của Ngài phương chi là thực hành để có được hạnh phúc chốn nội tâm.

    Câu chuyện của Angulimala giết 999 người là minh chứng khi nhầm lẫn vị Đạo sư giống như uống nhầm thuốc độc, nếu thuốc độc giết chết thân mạng của ta thì nhầm lẫn vị Đạo sư sẽ giết ta trong nhiều kiếp.

    Con cảm ơn Thầy đã cho chúng con được nương tựa bóng lành.

    Con cảm ơn đạo hữu Nirvadeva đã viết bài.

    Con cầu nguyện Thầy Cô sức khỏe, trường thọ vì đại nghiệp phổ truyền Yoga Thanh Trí, làm lợi lạc tất cả chúng sanh.

    Dear Holy Guru,

    I have read this article. Through the different consequences that Angulimala encountered by meeting different Gurus, once again I acknowledge the utmost importance of having the right Guru in our lives who lead us to the right path of right Dharma. Especially in this era where Dharma has been damaged by many fake monks, we are more appreciated to be taught by Guru, so that we can distinguish right and wrong views, not falling into the trap of fake monks, and we were awarded easy methods to practice Dharma. Accordingly, our lives have been shaped positively; not only in this life, but also the future after death. I recalled the eighth verse of “Fifty verses of Guru devotion” that said “(A Guru should be) stable (in his actions), cultivated (in his speech), wise, patient and honest. He should neither conceal his shortcomings, nor pretend to possess qualities he lacks. He should be an expert in the meaning (of tantra) and in its ritual procedures (of medicine and turning back obstacles). Also he should have loving compassion and a complete knowledge of the scriptures”. I am so grateful that we have met such Guru in our lives.

    I happily praise Tantra Nirvadeva’s merits for the meaningful sharing.

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

    May Covid19 pandemic end soon.

    Dear Holy Guru,

    I have read “The mistake of drinking poison”

    In this story, Ahimsaka had transformed to Angulimala because of his Guru’s hatred and then he has become tolerance bhikku after met Buddha, his Great Guru. Through the story, I have acknowledged Guru has played the most important role in our lives. The right Guru will shape disciple’s life happily, positively and peacefully, will guide disciple on the right path to enlightenment. The fake Guru will give disciple poison day by day through wrong view as long as he benefits himself with fame, money and power  and don’t even care how the disciple’s spiritual life. I feel so lucky and grateful that I have met the real Holy Guru in this life, I have a precious chance to learn Pure Yoga Mind and practice Dharma easily and conveniently through Guru’s teaching. Holy Guru has given us right view and new eyes to see through the mask of fake monk. Thank you Guru for your wisdom,generosity and Bodhicitta.

    Thanks Tantra Nirvadeva for this beautiful sharing, may you good health and attain all righteous wishes.

    May myself and other Dharma’s brothers always nurture devotion toward Guru, listen to Guru, treasure Dharma and practice Dharma diligently in order to not be back to suffering Samsara again.

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

    May Covid-19 pandemic will eliminate soon.

    May all sentient beings be free from suffering.

    Dear holy, respected and compassionate guru,

    Thank you so much for sharing this article with us. in fact I don’t know why but, while I was reading this article, I suddenly remembered the story of “the rich man who requested from the poor worker to build an house in three months” which I read here on chantuduy.com. I really liked this story, it contains alot of morals. Finally, maybe we can discover one day that the things which we considered as the worset things happened to us, was the best thing happened in our whole life. Thank you so much again.

    May you have good health and live long for the benefit of all sentient beings.
    May all sentient beings attain the happiness of Buddha’s nature.

    Dear Holy Guru,

    I have read this article. It reminds me of how important it is to have the saintly Guru and the consequences of having an evil one. Having a right Guru is taking medicine, having an evil Guru is like drinking poisons. I also notice how effective the Buddha’s path is, transforming the minds of a criminal who caused great sufferings to a saintly man.

    I feel lucky to find a Holy Guru. May all sentient beings attain the happiness of Buddha’s nature.

    May the Covid-19 pandemic will soon be over.

    Dear Holy Guru,

    I have read this article. Such an interesting story helps me distinguish the difference between the right guru and the fake guru, which is shown on the disciple’s spiritual path. In this case, it is the two opposing versions of Ahimsaka – Angulimala. Thanks to this story, I see the importance of following the right guru, who has the ability to shape the disciple’s path into the right orbit of enlightenment, which, on the contrary, following a fake guru leads to the consequence of the disciple fallen into the evil path.

    With this being acknowledged, I cannot help but feel grateful and lucky as I have found the right Guru, the holy Pure Mind Yoga Guru who has never rested in seeking and applying wonderful means to reshape and educate me. I bow before your lotus feet.

    May Guru and his consort live long for the sake of all sentient beings.

    May all sentient beings be free from suffering.

    Dear Guru,
    I have read this article.
    I am so impressed by the story that Dhamar friend – Tantra Nirvadeva has quoted. After reading the story of ‘Ahimsaka’ (Angulimala), I understand when a disciple meets a fake Guru, it is absolutely the same as he is “drinking poison”, because it harms his spiritual destiny not only in this life but also in many lives later.
    I comprehend the most important thing for any person who wants to go to enlightenment is meeting a right Guru. Therefore, I realize how lucky we are when being your disciples. I’m grateful for your Bodhicitta to all sentient beings, Guru!
    May Guru have good health and live long for the sake of all sentient beings.
    Thank Dhamar friend – Tantra Nirvadeva for sharing. May he achieve all righteous wishes due to diligence in practicing Dharma and nurturing Guru devotion.

    Dear Guru,

    I’ve read this story. I’m frightened by the cruel of the fake Guru. What he did was never for the benefit of his disciples, but for the benefits of himself. His worldly emotion even drove him to treat Ahimsaka maliciously. Poor Ahimsaka, because of relying on a fake Guru, he took the consequence of being a killer. Now, I got the meaning of mistaking a fake Guru is like drinking poison from the title of the story.

    I feel so fortunate that I won’t bear the risk of drinking the poison as I have met Guru. I pray for all sentient beings won’t be miserable by mistaking the fake Guru.

    Thank you Tantra Nirvadeva for sharing the story.

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

    May the Covid-19 epidemic will soon come to an end and may all sentient beings be free from suffering.

    Kính bạch Thầy,

    Con đã đọc bài này ạ.

    Qua câu chuyện được đạo hữu Tantra Nirvadeva chia sẻ lại, con cảm thấy thật tội nghiệp cho Ahimsaka, một đệ tử tốt, sùng mộ và hết lòng với vị Thầy của mình nhưng kết quả nhận lại là vô cùng bi thảm bởi trót tin lầm, nương tựa lầm đối tượng. Thế gian này có rất nhiều vị thầy nhưng chúng sanh vẫn mãi lang thang trong vực sâu tăm tối của tam đồ ác khổ là bởi họ không có được may mắn, không có được duyên lành hạnh ngộ bậc chân sư, bởi vậy hơn bất kỳ ai, hơn bất kỳ điều gì, vai trò của vị Thầy là tuyệt đối quan trọng đối với vận mệnh tâm linh của đệ tử.

    Từ câu chuyện chân thật của Agulimala, con thấy được hậu quả nhãn tiền rất nặng nề của việc nhầm lẫn vị Thầy. Nếu như không có sự xuất hiện và từ bi giáo hóa của Đức Phật, con không biết liệu rằng Agulimala sẽ còn trượt dài thế nào, gây tạo bao nhiêu ác nghiệp nữa trong những năm tháng còn lại của kiếp người. Cũng giống như vậy, nhờ lòng từ bi và trí tuệ của vị Thầy, bản thân con và rất nhiều huynh đệ Kim Cang đã từng bước chặn đứng được được dòng chảy của ác nghiệp hiện đời, vượt thoát khỏi bóng đêm của tà kiến vô minh, của vòng kiềm tỏa luân hồi bấy lâu, để tìm thấy chánh đạo cao quý cho mình. Có thể dù cho kiếp này căn cơ chậm lụt, trí tuệ thấp kém, không thành tựu được điều gì đáng tự hào, nhưng chỉ riêng việc có thể trụ vững một vị trí trên đạo trình về thành phố giải thoát, chứ không phải ngày càng thụt lùi vì hậu quả của “uống nhầm thuốc độc” cũng đã là công ơn rất lớn lao của vị Thầy mà con cảm thấy mình chẳng thể đền đáp nổi.

    Đức Liên Hoa Sanh từng xác quyết trong giáo huấn Dakini rằng “Khi một người ưa thích Pháp và một vị Thầy có giáo huấn khẩu truyền gặp gỡ, đó là sự kiện giống như một người mù tìm được một viên ngọc như ý”, hình ảnh này thật sự quá đắt giá để liên tưởng đến thuận cảnh hy hữu trong đời là một đệ tử tìm được vị Thầy chân chính để nương tựa, đặc biệt càng đúng hơn trong thời đại mạt pháp này, khi thuốc độc thì nhan nhãn mọi nơi mà nước mát thì hiếm như sao buổi sớm. Con xin ghi nhớ câu chuyện này và lời huấn thị của Đạo sư Liên Hoa Sanh để luôn biết trân quý, cố gắng giữ gìn viên ngọc như ý mà mình đã may mắn tìm được trong đời.

    Con cảm ơn bài viết lợi lạc của đạo hữu Tantra Nirvadeva.

    Con thành tâm cảm tạ ơn Thầy đã từ bi ban cho chúng con nơi nương tựa chân thật trong đời. Con cầu nguyện Thầy khỏe mạnh và trường thọ vì hạnh phúc của tất cả chúng sanh.

    Cầu nguyện cho nạn dịch covid-19 nhanh chóng được tiêu trừ.

    Dear Guru,

    I have read this article.

    Through the story shared by Tantra Nirvadeva, I feel very sorry for Ahimsaka, a good, loyal and devoted disciple toward Guru, but has to receive an extremely tragic result because of relying on the wrong Guru. There are many “Guru” in this world, yet sentient beings still wander in the darkness of sufferings and ignorance since they are not lucky enough to have an opportunity to encounter a right Guru. Therefore, more than anything and anyone, the Guru plays an important role in the spiritual destiny of disciple.

    From the real story of Agulimala, I see the terrible consequences of mistaking the Guru. Without the appearance and compassion of the Buddha, I do not know how long Agulimala would continue to slip and how much bad karma he would cause more in the remaining years of his life. Likewise, thanks to the compassion and wisdom of You, I and many vajra brothers have gradually prevented the existing flow of the evil karma, escaped from the darkness of ignorance, to find out the noble right path for ourselves. Maybe, because of low wisdom and bad ability, we couldnot achieve anything to be proud of in this life, but just being able to keep standing a fixed position on the right path to liberation instead of drawing back day by day as a result of “drinking poison”, is also an immense benevolence of the Guru that I feel I could never repay enough for what you did.

    Guru Padmasambhava asserted in the “Dakini teachings” that “When a person who has interest in the Dharma and a Master who possesses oral instructions meets, it is a fact that this is like a blind man finding a wish-fulfilling jewel“, this comparison is really suitable for thinking of the rare precious chance in life as a disciple finds a right Guru to rely on, especially even more true in this Dharma degenerate age, when “poison” is spreading everywhere but “cool water” is as rare as the morning star. I will remember this story and the teaching of Guru Padmasambhava to always cherish and try to preserve the jewel that I was lucky to find in my life.

    Thank Tantra Nirvadeva for sharing this meaningful article.

    I sincerely thank you for compassionately bestowing us the true refuge in life. May Guru and your consort have good health and long live for the sake of all sentient beings.

    May covid-19 pandemic soon be over.

    Through this article, I will keep in mind “a Guru’s role plays an important factor in shaping the future life of a disciple”. Because when we can meet the right Guru, our life will become happier with good guidance to the right way on the path to enlightenment. If we meet the fake Guru this means a “drinking a poison day by day”. As in case of the transformation of Ahimsaka to Angulimala, from a disciple to a murderer because of wrong view from his Guru. Thereby, I am happy and cherish the precious chance to meet and follow Real Guru on the path of Dharma, the path of enlightenment in this life. Guru teachs me to learn Pure Yoga Mind and practicing Dharma is easy to apply into real life. I am grateful Guru.

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

And in this time, the true guru is rare like stars in the morning but the fake guru is too much. Following a fake guru is a disaster that is like drinking poison. I also understand, that poison is usually as sweet as candy makes people enjoy, passionate but it ‘s taste is still poison that makes people suffer, deadlock. I pray for all sentient beings to find true refuge.

    Mật Diệu Hằng says:

    Dear Tantra Nivadeva,

    Your article has made me think much about the noble relationship of Guru and disciple. When a disciple follows the wrong master, he or she gets the bad consequence,  even this mistake can kill his or her spiritual life. I happen to remember the teaching of Guru Rinpoche Padmasambhava that “Not to examine the teacher is like drinking poison. Not to examine the disciple is like jumping off a cliff. ” The true Guru always has vast compassion to all sentient beings with no discrimination. The true Guru always wants to help all sentient beings be free from suffering with his best efforts. Even there are many Masters who sacrifice their life for benefit of their learners or disciples. But if a learner or disciple does not deserve to get his compassion, kindness and pure support,  what will happen?  Of course,  being disrespectful to any true Gurus, every being will get the worst consequence. And the Guru will be also affected by the bad deeds of a disciple or a learner.

    The Guru-disciple relationship will become pure and noble only when both try their best to finish their responsibility  on the path of enlightenment. A disciple or a learner needs to prove his or her pure devotion to Guru and Guru needs to have noble qualities to guide a disciple on the path to liberation. Even Guru has got spiritual achievement and provides effective methods to disciples or learners, but a disciple or learner is not good enough to recieve them, he or she will get nothing but bad consequences resulting in the suffering of samsara.

    Thank you so much for your sharing.

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

    May Tantra Nirvadeva get all your righteous wishes on the path to enlightenment.

    May all sentient beings attain the happiness of Buddha nature.

    May the covid 19 pandemic be soon over.

    Dear Guru, The article about drinking poison has lead me to think about the role of the failed  guru. People make mistakes,but why would he not ask his wife for the truth?  Why would he go against the Buddha’s  teachings without proof?  He must have been of good character at the start, but not strong enough.

    As for the young student, he questioned the correctness of the guru’s request. His own conscience said maybe collecting thumbs wasn’t right.  So why would  he do something  that didn’t seem right unless devotion to his guru  was complete. To be without discernment is not  appropriate.

    The last part of the story has the meaning for me that change is always possible.

    I am grateful for these teachings.

      Dear Tena,
      I am Mat Dieu Hang, one of Guru Thinley Nguyen Thanh’s disciples. Under Guru’s guidance and permission, I would like to share with you something. I hope you will listen to his words with respect.
      Guru has read your comment on the article of “the mistake of drinking poison” by Tantra Nirvadeva and he was not pleased with the way you understood about the meaning of the story. The questions you made were not necessary because they were so trivial compared to the meaning of the story. You should keep in mind that Angulimala’s guru is a pagan’s teacher, not a Buddhist Guru. The qualities and virtues of a Buddhist teacher is far different from a pagan’s one.
      What is the key meaning of the story? We should acknowledge the wonderful qualities and abilities of Buddha when he could convert Angulimala to stop bad deeds and practice on the Path of liberation. Likewise, when you go to the bank, you should pay attention to your purpose of withdrawing money or sending money, you should never think about how the restroom looks like.
      Guru is afraid of that your spiritual life may go wrong way if you keep such way of thinking. So he told me to write some lines to you in order that you can change your way of thinking to get the result when reading and understanding the Buddha’s teachings.
      The Buddha also affirmed that he became a Buddha because he had three following conditions:
      1, Know what is needed to know
      2, Renounce what is needed to renounce
      3, Practice the Dharma that is worth practicing.
      Some word with you under Guru’s guidance.
      May Guru and his consort have good health and live long for the sake of all sentient beings.
      May all sentient beings awake in the ultimate state of enlightenment.
      May Covid 19 pandemic be soon over.

    Con Mật Phong Tuyết (Phan Thị Bạch Tuyết) đã đọc bài viết này rồi ạ.Qua câu chuyện trong bài đã cho con hiểu được tầm quang trọng của việc tìm một vị đạo sư trên con đường tầm sư học đạo .Nếu không may gặp phải một đạo sư giả ,thì vận mênh của người đệ tử đó cũng giống như đã uống” nhầm thuốc độc” như câu chuyện mà đạo hữu Tantra Nirvadeva đã nêu ở trên.Qua đây ,con nhận thấy rằng mình vô cùngmay mắn khi được là học trò ,đệ tử của Thầy ,vị đạo sư chân chính Thanh Trí .

    Con thành tâm cầu nguyện cho sức khỏe và sự trường thọ của Thầy Cô vì sự nghiệp phổ truyền yoga Thanh Trí.

    Cầu nguyện cho đạo hữuTantra Nirvadeva luôn viên thành mọi ước nguyện chính đáng.

    Cầu nguyện cho tất cả chúng sanh thành tựu hạnh phúc của phật tánh.

    Cầu nguyện cho đai dịch covid 19 được tiêu trừ.

    Om mani padme hum.

    Dear Holy Guru!

    I had read the article. The story about the lead way “Ahimsaka” to become “Agulimala” name. He used to be a very dangerous person while his first teacher had told him to do the wrong way to become a better disciple. So happy to him when he has a chance to be taught by Budha. This means that, whenever you follow with an intelligent teacher, you can change the way to get happier, so powerful meaning. As me, time by time past, a chance to know the value to be a disciple by the Guru, I catch more felling, happier, healthier, and powerful than ever. These things will be never changed for me and others.

    Thank so much my Guru, who will be the leader and more powerful to help human being.

    May the Guru and his consort long live for the sake of all the sentient beings.

    May the willing by Tantra Nirvadeva to become true soon.

    May COVID 19 pandemic come to the end.

    Om Mani Padme Hum!
