Love for Tibet

"Never give up"

No matter what is going on
Never give up
Develop the heart
Too much energy in your country
Is spent developing the mind
Instead of the heart
Be compassionate
Not just to your friends
But to everyone
Be compassionate
Work for peace
In your heart and in the world
Work for peace
And I say again
Never give up
No matter what is going on around you
Never give up.

- Poem by the Dalai Lama -

The true meaning of life

We are visitors on this planet,
We are here for ninety
Or hundred years
At the very most.
During that period,
We must try to do something good,
Something useful,
With our lives.
If you contribute to other people’s happiness,
You will find the true goal,
The true meaning of life.

- 14th Dalai Lama

Very wise, very true knowledge shared here with us...

As a young man living and learning from my grandfather...he taught me that as a young man I am strong in body, strong in desires for many things love, life, some good and some not so good...yet if I am to grow and gain in knowledge and wisdom, I must be able to define self, admit all things that has to do with Self, good and bad...

Grandfather, said to me one time, come with me to the river...this I did, and when we reached the rivers edge, grandfather told me to return home and once I arrive, I am to sit next to the big oak in the side yard looking at nothing but the oak...after he told me this I ask, but grandfather...he said, stop and say nothing more, do as I ask and question nothing, just do what is my direction, and do this to the best of your ability, and that was the last words spoken between us this day...as I journey home, I feel as though I have done something to make grandfather upset with me, but what and when and how...this bothers me all the way home, and as I walk, it seems like it is taking me forever, so I start to run, and the more I run, the faster I get...run...run...run...

I see the house, and now I see the tree...I stop as I get close and start to walk to the tree, I look up at this huge oak, it is tall, strong, with many signs of bad weather on its limbs and the bark of its body...but still it stands tall, strong and true, it never gives in too the elements, it just continues to be...a big strong old oak tree...nothing more, nothing less...so I sit facing this old oak tree...as I sit, I feel as though when I look at it, it is looking back at me...but how...its just an old tree...

It is getting late afternoon...and as I sit looking at this tree, many questions are coming to me, one question is why did grandfather want me to sit and look at this tree...grandfather is wise, and strong, and never wastes time, everything in his life has its designed purpose and he uses this to his advantage, so that his journey is made a bit easier or is it that it makes his journey smarter...HMMM...so I sit, and look and think and wonder about many things this could mean...but none made any since to me...but as he said, I sit looking at this tree...

I hear something, but grandfather said sit and look at the tree...as the sound grew closer, my mind wanted to tell me to get up and go see...but the wisdom of an old man, told me to do what I was told, and as I sat many things came to me again...what if it is a bear or a wild dog or...or...stop thinking like this...it is grandfather coming and he will appear soon and tell me to get up and he will then tell me to express what has been learned this day or something like that...but time passes and the sounds grow weak, and the longer I sit I can no longer hear anything...it is dark now, and out here we have no lights shinning to help you see...it is just this old oak tree and me...as I sit, I find my mind thinking what does this old tree see, what does it know, what has it seen over the many years it has lived in this place, without moving and no way to go anyplace, just standing still in one spot on this mountain side hill...and then I can see, but how, it is dark with no lights...ahhhhh...the moon moves across the sky and now it is shinning and I can see...all of sudden, what is that looking at me...OHHHHHHH...thank goodness its grandfather just standing there smiling and looking at me...I say hi grandfather, you scared me...grandfather said I am sorry, come with me, as we walked toward the house, I had to look back to see, and grandfather said what are you doing grandson...and all I could answer was I looking at that old oak tree...and as my answer left my lips...grandfather was smiling and stopped and placed his hands on his hips he bent down to look at me...I ask, what are you looking at grandfather...he spoke softly and with much wisdom, I am looking at a young man that knows how to listen and learn and for this, you have my respect and faith in you in return...you are a man now with pride, truth and character and now the respect of an old man that only desires for you to learn and understand that all things have a purpose and a place, but until you sit and wait and face what ever it may be, you will always just pass and not realize the life of this old oak tree...this applies to all things in life, you must have a desire to know and the wisdom to sit, wait and ask or you will never know the true purpose that all things poses... so now you know what you must do, so as you grow and age give this too others as well and just as I, live life as it should be, do this with a small thought of me...and yes my man, and don't forget about this tree....

I share this so that all may see, my grandfather had great respect for that old tree and in time he gained the same respect for me, as did I for him and that tree...blessings EagleBear   just an older version of that young man, and the wisdom of that tree and of my grandfather just a humble old man.

Let us cultivate love and compassion, both of which give life true meaning. This... is the religion I preach. It is simple. Its temple is the heart. Its teaching is love and compassion. Its moral values are loving and respecting others, whoever they may be. Whether one is a lay person or a monastic, we have no other option if we wish to survive in this world..

What is the Sangha?

They are the students of the Lama,
My fellow travellers on the path,
My brothers and sisters in the Dharma,
The Dakas and Dakinis, dancing in the Lama`s Mandala,
They are my teachers,
They are my friends,
They are my protection and refuge,
They are my lovers and beloved,
Without them I cannot survive.
With them, I cannot fail.
They are the love and compassion
That can never die.

Words by Venerable Tenzin
