THANH TRI – THE 4TH MIND DHARMA: “LOTUS WALKING DHARANI”. LESSON 7 (FU POETRY FORM): A MOSAIC OF COLORED PANES IN SONG NGUYEN TANTRA HOUSE ( Luận giải đệ tứ tâm pháp Thanh Trí (liên hoa bách bộ thần chú đà la ni) bài 7 (thể thi phú): SẮC MÀU NĂM THÁNG Ở MẬT GIA SONG NGUYỄN)

As it is hard to confide the feelings of the third noble person, I would like to compose a Fu poem (Fu poetry is an old literary form combining prose and poetry) as a present to my disciples and the audience. The poem will end this series of lectures.

Disciples who came from Hai Phong:

Hurriedly took a flight to Ho Chi Minh city

Continuously rode on a bus to Tantra House as visitors

As it is a wish coming true after years

For having been a long-time disciples, this precious chance is cherished more, as

Tantra House’s solemn entrance is not welcoming guest casually

The Pure dwelling is not a place for talking over worldly affairs

 

Tantra House’s solemn entrance is not welcoming guest casually. The Pure dwelling is not a place for talking over worldly affairs

Though being exhausted after morning flight. Recovered with energy by the blessing encounter afterwards

Looking forward to pay a visit to Guru

Though being exhausted after morning flight

Recovered with energy by the blessing encounter afterwards

Since they used to visit Bai Dinh Temple

Or went hiking Yen Tu mountain every spring

Someone has visited Tam Chuc on the occasion of International day of Vesak

Yet, all the scenes has been repeated by curved red roof, triple gate

Buddha statues are placed illuminatingly everywhere

Instead of being covered by a pure green as the Tantra House

Instead of being covered by a pure green as the Tantra House

 

 

The rustling sound of footsteps is the cheerful sound of the heart

See, Lien Hoa Dai manifests itself as an awakening lotus flower

Lien Hoa Dai

See, Dau Chan Phat lake was imprinted by the Buddha’s footprint

Dau Chan Phat lake ( the Buddha’s footprint formerly)

Dau Chan Phat lake ( the Buddha’s footprint formerly – Now)

See, Ao Gia Phong Tuyet with little Snowy Mountain at both sides, as sturdy protecting fences, as if simulate the Buddhist commandments

Ao Gia Phong Tuyet with little Snowy Mountain at both sides

Phap Van Duong simulates a cloud of emptiness in the sky of sublime Dharma.

Phap Van Duong simulates a cloud of emptiness in the sky of sublime Dharma.

 

Shining brightly to Hoang Mai House, Thanh Tri, Tinh Khanh Chamber, striking a night lotus’ beauty, all are unique spiritual architecture

Hoang Mai House, Thanh Tri, Tinh Khanh Chamber, striking a night lotus’ beauty

Stay still for a while

Immerse in deep thoughts

Contemplate in the blessing air

Amazed by the voice of nightingale

Feel the bitterness of those who left

Rejoice inwardly for those who stay and consider this as their home

Someone takes a slight step on Lien Hoa Dai

Someone takes a picture for keep beautiful memories

Every memory will be faded, only Guru’s teaching will be always engraved in mind

Thrilling in front of extraordinary beauty

Thinking about the impermanence

Thrilling in front of extraordinary beauty

 

 

A disciple came to ask:

“Song Nguyen Tantra House has its current magnificent look with exceptional sceneries,

Is it originated from a period of coldness to have this dreamlike result?”

Stay speechless as just being awakened from a dream

I do not dare to believe this is the truth

“Song Nguyen Tantra House has its current magnificent look with exceptional sceneries,

Stay speechless as just being awakened from a dream

 

Because:

Formerly elephant grass was over our heads

The yard was full of mountain soils

Covered by the color of solitary

A lonely sad evening sky

The two main daily courses were just sweet potatoes leaves

A cup of black coffee was enough to warm my stomach in the morning

Worries of debts in the night bothered us

It was hard to imagine delicacies as we have had these days

Expecting that ten years working as journalist could bring a new life

Expecting that old friends, relatives could have offered helps

Formerly elephant grass was over our heads

The yard was full of mountain soils

The two main daily courses were just sweet potatoes leaves

Unfortunately!

They all disappeared because “it is hard to find relatives in difficult times”

Looked upon the sky, realized the law of cause-effect

Got used to the bitterness for years, not to mind about the hardships

Time passed by with struggles for eleven years

However:

The Buddha paid compassion, Dharma protector supported I and Mat Dieu to maintain our steady hands, manage to ride the Prajñā ship

Students, disciples shared the burdens by many “Digging dirt” events to innovate the Tantra House, as the diligent birds innovate their nest

In times of difficulties, many fake monks stabbed the spearhead on our backs, I and Mat Dieu tramped about through thick and thin from the South to the North

In a dead end, we were heckled by those who used power to abuse by all possible ways, all the disciples were on my side in the war of right view argument

Not as Zhuge Liang, but I set up strategy to escape dangers

Not as Tan That Nuong, Mat Dieu was patient to demand justice

For Hong Tuyen, we went through many battles, with all consensus and determination

For Hue Nhu, I had many white nights to cope with different parties, to be always vigilant

For those evils, we had forgotten our meals concentrating on fighting for the right views

For those who made money with counterfeit books, they could not help being threatened as we had shown all evidences

Students, disciples shared the burdens by many “Digging dirt” events to innovate the Tantra House, as the diligent birds innovate their nest

A look of today:

Song Nguyen Tantra House is shining brightly, students from all continents find this the right place to their spiritual fortune

We have been assimilating the blessing from Avalokiteshvara, all the hardships are transitioned into favorable conditions surprisingly

Mat Tu completed the degree of master

Mat Hong Tuyen made accomplishments overcoming all difficulties in South Korea

In the nation of Kiwi, Mat Hai, Mat Thuy sowed the seed of Bodhi

Bring Pure mind Dharma to sentient beings who are in the autumn of their lives

Mat Hai, Mat Thuy, Mat Tan Giac, Mat Hoa, Mat Nhuan Quang, Mat Chanh Tan, Mat Dang Tam, Mat Kien, Mat Dieu Hang, Mat Tinh Giac, Mat Khue Minh, Mat Nhi Khang, Mat Ba, Mat Tue Van, Mat Hong Nhat, Mat Phap Khanh…

All whole-heartedly devoted with dedication and renunciation

Everything has been flowing smoothly, thanks to the blessings

 

Song Nguyen Tantra House is shining brightly everywhere, students from all continents find this the right place to their spiritual fortune

In the nation of Kiwi, Mat Hai, Mat Thuy sowed the seed of Bodhi

Mat Hai

Mat Thuy

Mat Hong Tuyen completed master degree in South Korea

Mat Tu completed master degree in Sweden

Indeed:

With all achievements, I have never forgotten old students who had scattered..

With your own accomplishment, have you ever thought about the hardships in the past which were like “to be in captivity”

Six spiritual methods placed in every disciple’s heart with Guru devotion

Thousands of writings on the website will spread sublime Buddhist teachings

The shadow of old days is still there

Reflect on the clouds

Guru and disciples

Full of gratitude

Whoever comes and goes today

Do not forget those passing days

A house for all beings from any corner of the earth

Song Nguyen Tantra House – The song of triumph

    Dear Guru,

    Thank you, dharma brother Mat Tu for translation.

    I pray for the health and longevity of Guru for the all sentient being,

    I pray for the Coronavirus disease soon over,

    Om Mani Padme Hum.

  2. Dr CH Lakshmi narayan says:

    I bow my head at the lotus feet of Guru.
    I really wondered a beginner in English literature could write a poem like this !.It is a great achievement by Guru! There is a saying ” As you sow the seed, so you reap !”. And also one more saying,” If the hands become dirty and muddy (due to labourand sweat), the mouth Will taste the fruits of its outcome. Here in Song Nguyen Tantra House, Guruji has sown the seed of Bodhi and got the fruits of Spirituality in abundance sufficient to cater the need of the nook and corner of the whole world , of course with the collaboration of his students and disciples giving simultaneously the message ” unity is strength,! United we stand, divided we fall !”
    This is the best example to show nothing is impossible and any thing is possible with efforts of perseverance and diligent work and proove ” where there is will, there is a way !.Water drop by drop Will fill a vessel .
    Likewise, with Guru devotion, Small and big conjoint efforts of disciples has made this Song Nguyen Tantra House to stand top in the Spiritual world and unique by making a forest, bushy land into a spiritually fertile land which nurture dharma sprouts and yield the fruits of wisdom and Enlightenment!
    Om Mani Padme Hum.
    Tantra Nirvadeva.

    To my light in darkness the compassionate guru,

    Thank you so much for sharing this article with us, I really admired it, also the photos which you attached are fabulous, while I was starting at these photos, I felt that they’re a part of paradise, in fact Tantra house is full of compassion, love and peace, and I think that’s normal because my compassionate guru lives there

    Dear honorable guru,

    I’d like to tell you something since two days, but I’m a little bit hesitant, but now I’m gonna be brave and tell you that, I saw “Guru Rinpoche” in dreams, I dreamt that there was a group of people pray in front of him and I was between those people, I don’t know why I saw this dream, I didn’t ever think about Guru Rinpoche, listen or recit any mantra for him, I even don’t know his autobiography, I just saw his photo here on chanhtuduy.com,

    Thank you so much again dear bevered guru,

    May you have a good health and live long for the benefit of all sentient beings
    May all the sentient beings attain the happiness of Buddha’s nature
    May the pandemic caused by corona virus soon end
    Om Mani Padme hum 🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏

      Good

      • Mật Như Pháp says:

        Dear holy Guru
        I am very happy to see the view of Mat Gia Song Nguyen increasingly fresh and modern. Unlike the yellow temples of Buddha statues, Mat Gia is shady trees, green in nature, along with sophisticated and modern architecture, creating a sense of closeness. And I am extremely delighted to admire the brothers and sisters who together with Guru have built the spacious Tantra house today, and great spiritual structures.
        May Guru have good health and live long for the sake of all sentient beings.
        May all sentient being achieve the happyness of Buddha’s nature.
        May the Corona will end soon.
        Om mani padme hum

  8. Tantra Dharmapabodhisita says:

    Dear H.H. Guru,

    This is the seventh and last article of the series of 4th Mind Dharma. Guru has ended the series with the beautiful Fu poem (Fu poetry is an old literary form combining prose and poetry). I love poetry, and I am happy to read these beautiful poems which have a deep sense. The line of a poem “The Pure dwelling is not a place for talking over worldly affairs’’ is marvellous. Another is also very lovely “Instead of being covered by a pure green as the Tantra House.”

    Guru, I visited Tham Chuc Paigora in United Nations Day of Vesak 2019, and I presented my research paper on the Buddhist approach of ecological and sustainable development with jointly my younger brother Ravindra Kumar. (http://www.undv2019vietnam.com/Subtheme-05/en/14.pdf) First time I met Dhamma sister Mật Diệu Hằng there and she told us about our Guru who is an ocean of knowledge, generous of the right path and profound scholar of illuminating mind.

    I will write one full article on this series soon.

    Om Mani Padme Hum!

    With regards

    Tantra Dharmapabodhisita

      Dear Tantra Dharmapabodhisita,
      I am glad that you share the empathy of all the beauties I wanted to deliver through a Fu poem. Those lines that you shared are also the highlights of the poem. It is said that poetry is a language without borders, so does the voice of right views. Thank you for your good deeds to spread generous words about me, my teachings following the right views of the Buddha and the successors, and Song Nguyen Tantra House through your articles!
