Later, when most of the 3000 seats in the theater were filled he returned to begin to teach.

On this occasion the Heart Sutra was recited in English, as the entire audience followed Richard Gere’s lead from the stage. His Holiness quoted the Buddha as having said: “On my part I will show you the path, but you have to travel it,” and quoted the following verse: “Buddhas do not wash unwholesome deeds away with water, Read the rest of this entry »

Completing an Explanation of the Heart Sutra and Continuing Chapter Nine of the Guide to the Bodhisattva’s Way of Life

New York, USA, 19 October 2013 – For the second day, today, Rato Khenpo Nicholas Vreeland, with incense in hand, escorted His Holiness the Dalai Lama onto the stage of the Beacon Theater, New York. Once His Holiness had greeted members of the Sangha, performed prostrations to the Buddha, saluted the audience and taken his seat on the throne, a group of Chinese monastics recited the Heart Sutra in Chinese. He began with the remark that there is a verse at the end of the Heart Sutra that encapsulates the practice of the Dharma:
May I be able to dispel the three poisons
May the light of insight shine brightly
May I be able to overcome all obstacles
May I be able to engage in the deeds of Bodhisattvas.
He suggested that if in addition to chanting these lines, which encompass the content of the Pali and Sanskrit traditions, we are able to incorporate their meaning into our practice it will be of benefit.

“Shantideva, a scholar-adept at Nalanda University, says it is our duty to pay respect to senior students of the Dharma, for example, those who follow the Pali tradition. Read the rest of this entry »

Talking about Secular Ethics and Continuing the Guide to the Bodhisattva’s Way of Life

Mexico City, Mexico 13, October 2013 – Immediately after he had arrived at the Arena Ciudad de Mexico this morning His Holiness the Dalai Lama met with representatives of two local Buddhist groups. He was keen to explain to them that performing rituals and saying prayers is fine up to a point, but in the twenty-first century it is important to understand what Buddhism is about, which requires study. He also told them that scientists and others are taking greater interest in Buddhism for what it can tell them about the mind. A project is underway to compile materials from the Kangyur and Tengyur related to Buddhist science, philosophy and religion, which will make them easier to study in an academic way. He encouraged the making of such provisions in Dharma centres too. Read the rest of this entry »

Teaching Panchen Lobsang Chogyen’s Root Stanzas on Mahamudra

Atlanta, Georgia, USA, 10 October 2013 – Acceding to a request from Drepung Loseling Monastery in Atlanta, after arriving at the Glenn Memorial Auditorium of Emory University this morning, His Holiness the Dalai Lama lost no time before beginning his explanation of Panchen Lobsang Chogyen’s Root Stanzas on Mahamudra. He made clear that he would not follow the traditional procedure that requires preliminary prayers and repeated explanations, but would give a straightforward account of the verses.
He led the 1200 people present in reciting the traditional verse which in the first two lines concerns taking refuge in the Three Jewels and in the second two lines concerns developing the awakening mind of bodhichitta. Both sections refer to ‘I’, so for them to make sense we have to have some sense of self. Read the rest of this entry »
