We’re all pilgrims here on earth. Passing through. I want my pilgrimage to be constructive, not destructive; humane, not inhumane; globally minded & comprehensive, not nationalistic & sectional; a pilgrimage that asks & helps answer the question: How can we live in love together?

With a half day to recover from jet lag and get everything ready for work, I wasn't going to waste a single minute in #Taiwan being bored. First stop, the #NationalPalaceMuseum of #Taipei 🇹🇼
With a permanent collection of 700,000 pieces of ancient #Chinese #ImperialArtifacts and artwork collected by #ChineseEmperors , there is plenty to see. In fact, I found out that, with the exception of a few signature displays, 60,000 exhibit pieces are rotated every three months...at that rate, it would take about 12 years to see everything the museum has to offer!

One of the most beautiful things about Buddhist community is the tremendous generosity and service that makes it possible. Real life heroes doing the hard work everyday. Feeling gratitude for these two amazing women who are my students, coworkers and friends (and they also happen to be excellent practitioners and inspiring teachers)! Satya and Aruna run Ngakpa International and they do so much more. They show up with massive resourcefulness and love to organize my teaching activities with such care and dedication. Its not always easy or simple to make things happen - and when its not - it really matters to have an excellent team.... Thank you Satya and Aruna for showing me the power of love and support. May all beings everywhere have friends like this.... #leadersnotfollowers

☆ 就像一個農民春天種地,他把僅有的糧食都播了種,家裡就沒有糧食了,要等五六個月以後才會豐收,而現在他卻是一個沒有飯吃的窮人。有人覺得奇怪:你種了那麼多地,天天辛勤勞動,為什麼沒飯吃呢?這種疑問是沒有道理的。誰都知道,播種和豐收之間是有一段時間間隔的,現在沒有糧食是因為他去年沒有好好種地,沒有獲得豐收,所以把種子播下去後,便沒有餘糧可吃,這與他今年的辛勤勞作沒有直接關係。同樣,參加法會或放生與現在的病痛災難也沒有直接的聯繫,因為病痛災難是過去世所造惡業成熟的顯現。

It is in the presence of Death, Heartbreak, Disappointment and Persecution of your character do you discover who you are. It’s not an easy process of self-discovery, it requires you to stand in a river of emotions with a strong current. If you can be brave and be willing to send your prayers to the Great Mystery... many Medicine gifts will be given to you. Many Healers are born not from birth, but out of pain and loss - the Wounded Healer. “On the journey of the warrior-bodhisattva, the path goes down, not up, as if the mountain pointed toward the earth instead of the sky. Instead of transcending the suffering of all creatures, we move toward turbulence and doubt however we can. We explore the reality and unpredictability of insecurity and pain, and we try not to push it away. If it takes years, if it takes lifetimes, we let it be as it is. At our own pace, without speed or aggression, we move down and down and down. With us move millions of others, our companions in awakening from fear.” - Pema Chodron #tarot #tarotcards #tarotreading #tarotreading #bodhisattva #bodhisattvas #spiritualwarrior #spiritualteachings #woundedhealer #healers #lifechallenges #lifecoach #shaman #storyteller #spiritualteacher #yvr

En 2015 hice un viaje a Tikal, Guatemala, con Xun (Juan Daniel), un amigo muy querido que murió hace dos años. Al regreso de Guate a Frontera Corozal, tomamos el auto que habíamos dejado estacionado ahí y nos lanzamos a recorrer la fronteriza rumbo a San Cristóbal. 
Nunca me sentí tan en paz, tan libre, como cuando estaba con él y recorríamos sin mapa las carreteras, buscando lugares desconocidos que nos sorprendieran. ¡Los hubo muchísimos! Y aún hoy, que él ya no está aquí, me sigo aventurando por la vida...

Torso of a #Bodhisattva, probably Sahri-Bahlol Workshop, Gandharan work found in today's Pakistan (ancient region of #Gandhara, modern #Peshawar region), ca. 5th century. Medium: #Schist.

Originally standing more than ten feet tall, this torso provides an idea of the zenith of late #Gandharan production in the fifth century. The sensitively modeled, anatomically correct torso is in accord with long-established precedent and is similar to other sculpture from a workshop active st the site of Sahri-Bahlul. By the fifth century,  Mahayana (the Great Wheel sect of North Indian Buddhism) was taking hold of #Gandhara and #Bodhisattvas were conceptualized in new ways. Bodhisattvas like  #Avalokiteshvara were understood as having reached a state of enlightenment and, out of compassion, to have remained on earth to guide others in their quest for spiritual perfection.  The monasteries of the Gandharan region commissioned large-scale bodhisattvas in recognition of the growing popularity of these interventionist deities, which embody #Buddhist compassion. The cult of #Avalokiteshvara represents the highest expression of this sentiment. Probably from the Sahri-Bahlol monastery, this large stone torso, from a figure originally about ten feet tall, is a spectacular survivor from that era. Sensitively modeled and dressed in a draped monk’s robe, it reflects a lingering memory of contact with the #Hellenistic West. #buddha #bodhisattva #peshawar # #afghanistan🇦🇫 #greekart #pakistanarchaeology #sculpture #gandhara

慈誠羅珠堪布:修空性一剎那的時間,也可以清淨殺盜淫妄
.
一、無明的危害
.
《大乘阿毗達摩》與小乘《俱捨論》中,把我們的負面情緒稱為煩惱,並將煩惱的種類分得非常清楚。一般的心理學與醫學,也不會有這麼多的描述煩惱方面的詞匯。無論如何分類,所有煩惱的根源,就是無明。
.
無明,也即愚昧、愚癡。因為不知道世界與自己的真相,很多事情想不開,所以產生了很多煩惱。如果明白真理、真相或真谛,就不會有這些煩惱。所以,所有的煩惱都是從無明中產生的。
.
無明是一種潛在的煩惱,不像嗔恨心和貪心那樣明顯。當我們生起嗔恨心和貪心的時候,不但自己非常清楚,別人也很容易看出來,因為言行舉止都會有所變化。但無明卻隱藏得很深,一般很難察覺。世間的所有學者、智者,包括科學家、哲學家、心理學家等等在內,都沒有發現最終極的無明。雖然世間的各種學科幫我們解決了一部分的愚昧,為我們揭示了很多世界、人生的真相,讓我們明白了很多道理。但最深的無明煩惱,卻是科學、哲學與很多宗教都從未觸及的。更因為他們的方法與無明不相矛盾,所以也不能推翻與斷除無明。
.
過去釋迦牟尼佛住世的時候,印度有五花八門的宗教,形形色色的觀點。有些宗教相信,世界是由天人中的梵天在控制、主宰,梵天高興,我們就可以解脫;梵天不高興,我們就會墮地獄。為了供養梵天,就殺牛、殺羊、殺各種動物來祭祀,這種做法就是無明。
.
佛教認為,主宰世界的,並不是梵天。梵天只不過是六道輪回中的天人之一,他自己都會受制於業力,都沒有解脫,會墮落受苦,更不是萬能的。即使以祭祀讓他生起歡喜心,他也沒有能力讓我們解脫。更何況,殺動物去祭祀梵天,只能讓我們墮落,絕不會讓我們解脫。 .
在二十世紀三四十年代,有些邊遠地方甚至還有殺人祭祀的情況。這種滅絕人性的做法,本來就是極大的愚昧,只能增長我們的無明,更不可能推翻無明。
.
有了無明,就會有執著,執著外在的世界,執著自己的身體、名、利等等。達不到自己的欲望,就會煩惱、痛苦。為了達到欲望,就會殺盜淫妄等等,所有罪業,都來自於執著,來自於無明。
.
二、推翻無明的方法
.
要推翻無明,需要與無明沖突、對立,且比無明煩惱強大的觀念與方法。哪怕念佛、燒香、拜佛、守戒、持咒、吃素都做得非常好,積累了各種世間福報,做了很多善事,但如果沒有證悟空性,就不能推翻無明。人身難得、死亡無常等出離心的修法與慈悲心等修法雖然非常重要,但都與無明沒有沖突,所以也不能推翻無明。菩提心分為勝義菩提心和世俗菩提心,勝義菩提心是證悟空性的智慧,當然可以推翻無明,但世俗菩提心仍然不能推翻無明。關於這些,在因明論典以及《釋量論》等經論裡面說得非常清楚。
.
當年達摩祖師剛剛來到中國的時候,梁武帝給達摩祖師匯報了自己的各種善舉,吃齋、念佛、供僧等等,然後不免得意地問祖師:“這些善法有多大功德?”不料達摩祖師一句話就讓梁武帝啞口無言了:“沒有功德!” 很多人想不通。為什麼達摩祖師會說沒有功德呢?達摩祖師當然會承認因果的存在,從因果的角度來說,念佛、持戒、吃齋當然有功德,這一點達摩祖師不可能否定,所有的佛教徒都不可能否定。但達摩祖師在此處,是從更高層次的勝義谛角度去評價的,如果沒有證悟空性的見解,這一切對解脫不會起到根本性的作用,所以達摩祖師才給梁武帝澆了一勺冷水。
.
宗喀巴大師在《三主要道》中也講了:菩提心、出離心非常重要,但僅靠出離心和菩提心的力量,無法推翻無明,最後,我們還需要空性見。 
就像醫生看病,能不能治好病的關鍵,在於能否了解病的根源,否則無法對症下藥。同樣,我們沒有解脫、不自在、不自由的根源,既不是偶然或無因無緣,也不是萬能神在操控,而是源於執著。
.
比如,當我們非常執著一個人的時候,這個人的一舉一動,都會讓我們時而歡喜、時而憂愁。其間痛苦的幾率,將遠遠超過幸福。因為一旦在乎、執著以後,就會有要求。如果對方沒有按照自己的要求去做,不能滿足自己,就會平添許多痛苦。直到兩個人感情破裂,以致形同陌路之後,因為執著消失了,才會相安無事了。反之,很多我們越不在乎的事物,反而有可能越是給我們帶來幸福感。生活就是這樣,這是顛撲不破的自然規律。
.
驅除黑暗,需要光明;掃除無明黑暗,需要智慧的陽光。此處的智慧,不是世間的聰明、機靈,很多現實生活中的聰明,很可能反而是一種愚蠢。現實生活中懂得怎樣去賺錢、去消費,顯得很聰明,卻有可能毀了自他的解脫和來世,所以也很愚蠢。唯一真正明白無明本質及化解方法的人,就是兩千五百年前的釋迦牟尼佛。釋迦牟尼佛的教法傳開以後,很多人證悟了世界的真相,獲得了無上的自由和解脫。
.
我們要尋找的,是證悟空性的智慧。智慧有三種:聽聞所得的智慧,思維所得的智慧,修行所得的智慧。一一對應,尋找的方法也有三種:聞、思、修。
.
通過聽法,聆聽佛的教理,會讓我們明白很多道理,這叫聞所得的智慧。但聞所得的智慧還沒有經過自己的思維與推敲,故而不是很穩定,力度也不是很強。我們不能淺嘗辄止,僅僅停留在聽聞佛法的階段,還要進一步去思考:雖然佛經裡面是這樣說了,但實際上是不是這樣的呢?
.

. . 慈誠羅珠堪布:修空性一剎那的時間,也可以清淨殺盜淫妄 . 一、無明的危害 . 《大乘阿毗達摩》與小乘《俱捨論》中,把我們的負面情緒稱為煩惱,並將煩惱的種類分得非常清楚。一般的心理學與醫學,也不會有這麼多的描述煩惱方面的詞匯。無論如何分類,所有煩惱的根源,就是無明。 . 無明,也即愚昧、愚癡。因為不知道世界與自己的真相,很多事情想不開,所以產生了很多煩惱。如果明白真理、真相或真谛,就不會有這些煩惱。所以,所有的煩惱都是從無明中產生的。 . 無明是一種潛在的煩惱,不像嗔恨心和貪心那樣明顯。當我們生起嗔恨心和貪心的時候,不但自己非常清楚,別人也很容易看出來,因為言行舉止都會有所變化。但無明卻隱藏得很深,一般很難察覺。世間的所有學者、智者,包括科學家、哲學家、心理學家等等在內,都沒有發現最終極的無明。雖然世間的各種學科幫我們解決了一部分的愚昧,為我們揭示了很多世界、人生的真相,讓我們明白了很多道理。但最深的無明煩惱,卻是科學、哲學與很多宗教都從未觸及的。更因為他們的方法與無明不相矛盾,所以也不能推翻與斷除無明。 . 過去釋迦牟尼佛住世的時候,印度有五花八門的宗教,形形色色的觀點。有些宗教相信,世界是由天人中的梵天在控制、主宰,梵天高興,我們就可以解脫;梵天不高興,我們就會墮地獄。為了供養梵天,就殺牛、殺羊、殺各種動物來祭祀,這種做法就是無明。 . 佛教認為,主宰世界的,並不是梵天。梵天只不過是六道輪回中的天人之一,他自己都會受制於業力,都沒有解脫,會墮落受苦,更不是萬能的。即使以祭祀讓他生起歡喜心,他也沒有能力讓我們解脫。更何況,殺動物去祭祀梵天,只能讓我們墮落,絕不會讓我們解脫。 . 在二十世紀三四十年代,有些邊遠地方甚至還有殺人祭祀的情況。這種滅絕人性的做法,本來就是極大的愚昧,只能增長我們的無明,更不可能推翻無明。 . 有了無明,就會有執著,執著外在的世界,執著自己的身體、名、利等等。達不到自己的欲望,就會煩惱、痛苦。為了達到欲望,就會殺盜淫妄等等,所有罪業,都來自於執著,來自於無明。 . 二、推翻無明的方法 . 要推翻無明,需要與無明沖突、對立,且比無明煩惱強大的觀念與方法。哪怕念佛、燒香、拜佛、守戒、持咒、吃素都做得非常好,積累了各種世間福報,做了很多善事,但如果沒有證悟空性,就不能推翻無明。人身難得、死亡無常等出離心的修法與慈悲心等修法雖然非常重要,但都與無明沒有沖突,所以也不能推翻無明。菩提心分為勝義菩提心和世俗菩提心,勝義菩提心是證悟空性的智慧,當然可以推翻無明,但世俗菩提心仍然不能推翻無明。關於這些,在因明論典以及《釋量論》等經論裡面說得非常清楚。 . 當年達摩祖師剛剛來到中國的時候,梁武帝給達摩祖師匯報了自己的各種善舉,吃齋、念佛、供僧等等,然後不免得意地問祖師:“這些善法有多大功德?”不料達摩祖師一句話就讓梁武帝啞口無言了:“沒有功德!” 很多人想不通。為什麼達摩祖師會說沒有功德呢?達摩祖師當然會承認因果的存在,從因果的角度來說,念佛、持戒、吃齋當然有功德,這一點達摩祖師不可能否定,所有的佛教徒都不可能否定。但達摩祖師在此處,是從更高層次的勝義谛角度去評價的,如果沒有證悟空性的見解,這一切對解脫不會起到根本性的作用,所以達摩祖師才給梁武帝澆了一勺冷水。 . 宗喀巴大師在《三主要道》中也講了:菩提心、出離心非常重要,但僅靠出離心和菩提心的力量,無法推翻無明,最後,我們還需要空性見。 就像醫生看病,能不能治好病的關鍵,在於能否了解病的根源,否則無法對症下藥。同樣,我們沒有解脫、不自在、不自由的根源,既不是偶然或無因無緣,也不是萬能神在操控,而是源於執著。 . 比如,當我們非常執著一個人的時候,這個人的一舉一動,都會讓我們時而歡喜、時而憂愁。其間痛苦的幾率,將遠遠超過幸福。因為一旦在乎、執著以後,就會有要求。如果對方沒有按照自己的要求去做,不能滿足自己,就會平添許多痛苦。直到兩個人感情破裂,以致形同陌路之後,因為執著消失了,才會相安無事了。反之,很多我們越不在乎的事物,反而有可能越是給我們帶來幸福感。生活就是這樣,這是顛撲不破的自然規律。 . 驅除黑暗,需要光明;掃除無明黑暗,需要智慧的陽光。此處的智慧,不是世間的聰明、機靈,很多現實生活中的聰明,很可能反而是一種愚蠢。現實生活中懂得怎樣去賺錢、去消費,顯得很聰明,卻有可能毀了自他的解脫和來世,所以也很愚蠢。唯一真正明白無明本質及化解方法的人,就是兩千五百年前的釋迦牟尼佛。釋迦牟尼佛的教法傳開以後,很多人證悟了世界的真相,獲得了無上的自由和解脫。 . 我們要尋找的,是證悟空性的智慧。智慧有三種:聽聞所得的智慧,思維所得的智慧,修行所得的智慧。一一對應,尋找的方法也有三種:聞、思、修。 . 通過聽法,聆聽佛的教理,會讓我們明白很多道理,這叫聞所得的智慧。但聞所得的智慧還沒有經過自己的思維與推敲,故而不是很穩定,力度也不是很強。我們不能淺嘗辄止,僅僅停留在聽聞佛法的階段,還要進一步去思考:雖然佛經裡面是這樣說了,但實際上是不是這樣的呢? . ☆續下☆ .
Tzu Chi USA could not be where it is today without the consistency and dedication of our long-time #volunteers. Inspired by Dharma #MasterChengYen’s mission of “compassion and relief,” these everyday #bodhisattvas sacrifice their time and effort over the days, weeks, months, and years. Actor Ya Han Chang, from the On the Buddha’s Path original film “The Peace Inside,” played the role of Judy Wang, a real-life Tzu Chi New York volunteer who committed herself faithfully to fulfilling this creed over the span of 20 years. We’re humbled by the steadfastness she conveys in her performance, because for many of our volunteers, it’s not just an activity, it’s a calling. See the premiere of our original film at On the Buddha’s Path: Compassion in Action Short Film Tour on May 15 in #NYC. Buy tickets now at otbp.eventbrite.com/#tickets

It really is about learning. Again and again. How many times? In some of the darkest hours of my life I thought about just ending it, but there was a voice inside of me that knew the way out could not be that easy and I would probably be reborn right back into another life of troubled circumstances and perhaps worse off. So I (reluctantly) decided to tough it out- every single painful, f-ed up moment, even the ones that felt like it would never end. Like I would never not feel pain, or sadness or desperation or heartbreak or lost, all of those ghosts that tried to make a home in my heart and mind. For a long time my circumstances were fitting to all that. But I learned. I read. I studied. I traveled. I followed what my heart really wanted. Life became amazing. As #JosephCampbell said #FollowYourBliss I let go of the old broken ways. I listened to people who had hope. I listened to inspirational quotes that woke something up in me. I sought people who believed in possibilities rather than limitations. I started to believe In possibilities rather than limitations, and sometimes slowly sometimes suddenly more things became possible. My frequency changed. This life at this moment is a constellation of temporary arrangements. This life, this skin, this gender, this citizenship, this money, this health, this family, this everything,... it's all part of a temporary vehicle. We are not human beings having spiritual experience, we are Spiritual beings having human experiences. Do you feel it when you meet someone you've known for lifetimes? What goes with us into the next lifetime? Our karma? Our mental habits? Our intentions? Our actions? I have so much gratitude for all the spiritual beings who come specifically to help all the rest of us out. Thank you old souls. Thank you speakers of truth. Thank you #Bodhisattvas Thank you Love in human form. Thank you Spiritual teachers who show the way back to our own Spirits and connection with Divinity and all things. Thank you to those who taught me how to #smudge, how #pray, how to #meditate. #SpiritualEmpowerment. #ItGetsBetter #SpiritualLife #SpiritualGangster #SpiritualAwakening #Reincarnation #AskBelieveReceive

we will all encounter loss, be faced with illness and age, and eventually that great equalizer, death. our time here is increasingly limited and the opportunity to bring healing, light and love, easily escapes.

knowing this how can we harm?

many of us don’t face this difficult truth. many of us don’t know how to transform or heal  our suffering, so we transmit it, feeding into the cycle of pain and suffering.

don’t fight people. shed light on destructive ideology. work to end what is harmful - the greed, the fear, the anger and aggression, the violence, the hate. ~j

There are these three obstructions. 
1. #Addiction
2. Aversion 
3. Apathy

And there are these ways to remove those obstructions:

1. Let go
2. Embrace 
3. Engage 
At first mind is addicted to its own creation. Let go. 
Then it realizes the error and become averse to its own creation. Embrace! 
There is a foolish “letting go” and an enlightened “letting go”. Foolish letting go is aversion. Enlightened letting go is freedom from discrimination!

Thinking it has found truth, mind rejects both ‘picking up’ and ‘setting down’. This is the danger of apathy. Apathy is aversion to both addiction and aversion. Disengaged. Meta aversion. This is not the emptiness of the Buddhas. The Buddhas and #Bodhisattvas are fully engaged. Not hiding in the mud. Engage!

The emptiness of the #Buddha is beyond the assertions and negations of the philosophers (lankavatara sutra). Beyond the produce of dualistic false imagination.

Such special children of the most beautiful wildflowers are these ladies. Treasures of Humanity.
"Oh, let the sun beat down upon my face
And stars fill my dream
I'm a traveler of both time and space
To be where I have been
To sit with elders of the gentle race
This world has seldom seen
They talk of days for which they sit and wait
All will be revealed"

#bodhisattva - Soooooo...Today my patient says he’s convinced I’m Bodhisattva. I’m like what you calling me? This man came to me a HOT mess #hotmess. Yet today - looking well, #onlygod... #recovery shares for a long while, since I started treating him (6months) he’s thought I’m for sure I am a #timeless #healer...so today - closer to his own right mind says now that he’s feeling better - he’s 160% sure. So I’m like what is this....Now? All I have to say is - Y’all I’m Bodhisattva - someone who is motivated by great compassion and the spontaneous wish to attain wellness for all. Also if anyone knows how I #sit, how I drive, how I live....all I could say was like....what what - #bodhisattvas sit like me too??? Please continue... lol #pleasecontinue #imlistening #sanskrit #artist #whatnow #bodhisattvamother #whatyoucallme #buddhism #mentalhealthwarrior

That is the bodhisattva’s way.
As long as it benefits even one being you have to, without any sense of discouragement, go on."

Yesterday, we #celebrated Buddha's Enlightenment Day by engaging in our annual #fasting & #purification #retreat called Nyungye 😇#motivated by #compassion and #renunciation for 32 hours, I gave up all food & drinks (except water), social media, & all forms of entertainment 🙇🙏 it's easier than it sounds and makes me wonder why I don't do it more often?

Happy Bodhi Day!!! April 15th marks the day Siddhartha attained enlightenment, became Buddha! A blessing for this first nakshatra new moon in Ashwini, in Aries, and Mercury coming out of retrograde. Horsepower!  I'm so grateful that I got to be of service @santaanitahotyoga, then take a beautiful hip opening class there, followed by teaching my own restorative and sound meditation class @yogarockstudios. As exhausted as I am, I'm grinning ear to ear, having taught each one of the 6 restorative poses w one of each 6 perfections that lead to enlightenment: Giving, Moral Discipline, Patience, Joyful Effort, Concentration, and Wisdom.  Yogis love contemplating on that which cultivates peace! 🕉 shanti 🙏
