«Mi bienestar está relacionado con tu bienestar; mi sufrimiento, con tu sufrimiento. Pretender buscar mi felicidad y mi seguridad como si yo fuera una isla es una estupidez. De esta sabiduría viene el altruismo, y ahí es donde budismo y ciencia se separan, porque el altruismo no es común en la ciencia.» —B. Alan Wallace
Real devotion only arises when you have a glimpse of emptiness, some glimpse of the nature of mind. Once you have some very precise insight as to how emptiness helps to alleviate suffering, then devotion is based on a real, embodied experience.
Is Lha Bab Düchen today: Buddha’s descent from heaven realm.
The Buddha had vowed to repay his mother in gratitude for all that she had done for him, and so he spent three months in heaven realm teaching her and other gods and goddesses in order that they, too, might be released from the state of samsara — the otherwise eternal round of birth, life, and death.
After three months Buddha returned to earth in ladder.
This is 10 MILLION multiplier day: every positive and negative actions multiplied 10 MILLION times!
(This is Baden also: Unfavorable day for putting up Lungta or prayer flag.)
Happy Day to You!
May you be able and upright, straightforward, of gentle speech and not proud.
May you be content and easily supported, unburdened, with their senses calmed.
May you be wise, not arrogant and without desire for the possessions of others.
May you do nothing mean or that the wise would reprove.
May all beings be happy.
May they live in safety and joy.
All living beings, whether weak or strong, tall, stout, average or short, seen or unseen, near or distant, born or to be born, may they all be happy.
Let no one deceive another or deceive any being in any state, let none by anger or hatred wish harm to another.
As a mother watches over her child, willing to risk her own life to protect her only child, so with a boundless heart should one cherish all living beings, suffusing the whole world with unobstructed loving kindness.
Standing or walking, sitting or lying down, during all one’s waking hours, may one remain mindful of this heart and this way of living that is the best in the world.
Unattached to speculations, views and sense desires, with clear vision, such a person will never be reborn in the cycles of suffering.
