          Truthful Honesty is the 7th Mental Perfection. Like the moon remains in its fixed orbit around the earth, even so should one stay and stick with the truth, thereby insisting on honesty. This guarantee induces trust, confidence and assured certainty in the mind, as well as in the society. You can play with your drama, but not with your karma.. http://What-Buddha-Said.net/drops/Truth_Triumphs.htm http://What-Buddha-Said.net/drops/IV/Not_Deceiving.htm http://What-Buddha-Said.net/drops/What_is_Right_Speech.htm http://What-Buddha-Said.net/drops/III/Optimal_Observance_IV.htm

          • Hearing the Dharma

            Hello everybody !!! On 16th july 2010, I had the chance to go to Lantau Island, Hong Kong, to see the Tian Tan Buddha of Ngong Ping. It was a very inspiring visit. The atmosphere was very special. There was everything from heavy heavy rain and wind to crystal clear sunshine. It was as if nature displayed all her palette of moods. And all this was happening on the background of peaceful, open space ... which the Tian Tan Buddha helped one to become aware of. The statue is very beautiful and inspiring. With the right hand the Buddha makes the mudra (the gesture) of "fear not", with the left hand he performs the mudra of giving. With his hands he also beautifully joins heaven and earth. Six Devas, or deities, are presenting their offerings to the Buddha : flowers, incense, lamp, ointment, fruit and music. They symbolize the six paramita, the six perfections or transcendent actions, which while we are trying to practice them help us to free ourselves from the grip of the ego. The six paramita are generosity (dana), morality (shila), patience (kshanti), zeal (virya), meditation (dhyana) and wisdom (prajna). The whole atmosphere was one of "hearing the dharma". The Indian notion of Dharma is like the Chinese idea of Dao or Tao (Do in japanese), the Way of things, the way of the cosmos. It is like the European idea of the "music of the spheres". The root of the word "dharma" is "dhr", which in sanskrit means "to sustain". So dharma is that which sustains everything : the universe, life, nature, our diverse traditions, our own personal lives. This is why it also has the meaning of path, religion, duty, righteousness, appropriateness ... It is the ultimate dynamic or/and order of what is. To illustrate the pictures, I found it appropriate to use Cyril Morin's composition "The Four Noble Truths" which was part of the soundtrack to the film "Samsara". The four noble truths are : the truth of suffering (Dukkha), the truth of the origins of suffering (Dukkha Samudaya), the truth of the cessation of suffering (Dukkha Nirodha) and the truth of the noble eightfold path leading to the cessation of suffering (Dukkha Nirodha Gamini Patipada Magga). The eightfold path consists of right view, right intention, right speech, right action, right livelihood, right effort, right mindfulness and right concentration. I was inspired today to make this video by a little posting I saw on the internet by H. E. Tsem Tulku Rinpoche on 65 Grand Statues of the World that bring the people of the world "hope, inspiration or a reminder of something people wish to aspire to." Thank you Tsem Tulku Rinpoche for your inspirations and thank you to all of you who contribute to make this world a more inspired place ;-) !!! Lots of good and peaceful energies and inspirations to all of you !!! Christoph (23/08/2010)
