The Nature of Mind

The inherent nature of the mind is empty, so no phenomenon is being created or destroyed.

The inherent nature of the mind is radiant and clear, so all phenomena are neither defiled nor immaculate.

The inherent nature of the mind is compassionate and immeasurable, so it is impartial and without discrimination.

Every single thought arising in the mind makes all the difference between success and failure.

~An excerpt from the book “Crystal Clear Mind” written by Khenpo Sangpo Rinpoche~

The Nepal Earthquake

The news about the people that were killed the Nepal earthquake is very sad. I hope that all students of Samye Buddhist Association in Taiwan and Malaysia will come together and recite mantras and pray.

We will say mantras for the survivors to help the wounded, protect them from fear, and help them in their rehabilitation. We will also pray for the deceased, that they may be guided by the compassionate Buddhas and Bodhisattvas, and return to the place without pain, being reborn in the pure lands.
