Khenchen Namdrol Rinpochen kommentti Sogyal Rinpocheen kohdistuneesta hyökkäyksestä. Alla puhe myös kirjoitettuna videon 17:08 kohdasta loppuun.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=1&v=N7kG1RSn1bU

Just as the Dharma is profound then we should also keep in mind that the demonic forces can be just be as profound. So we’re also facing many obstacles that have come up here recently that all of us need to be careful about. And when you think about it these days you’re all disciples of Sogyal Rinpoche and so were the eight people who put their names on the letter that they issued but whether they really know it or not. That was really an attempt to not only just disparage the master but to try to destroy him and everything that he’s done and that’s something that really really makes me feel upset and upsets everyone else too. This kind of activity is so completely unnecessary. Why? Because it so detrimental to the doctrine. From a spiritual point of view it goes against every aspect of Dharma and also from a worldly point of view it is so disrespectful and unnecessary and also instilling doubt and wrong view in the minds of so many disciples unnecessarily, to the point where they may even turn their minds away from the Dharma for good. Imagine that? Imagine doing something that would cause that kind of result or repercussion. In fact it falls into the category of the five heinous non-virtues. Slandering the Sangha. These non-virtues occurred at the time of Buddha’s life. That’s why they’re put into categories and mentioned as the worst crimes of all, the worst sins of all. And all other broken vows became the vows to abstain from and so just like that. Among them all due to the historical account of what happened during Buddha’s own life this is placed as one of the five heinous. To slander or to cause division in the Sangha, to divide the Sangha. So that means what happens is you are causing a disciple of Dharma to doubt the grounds and paths of Buddha’s teachings and it makes an obstacle towards their accomplishment of liberation and it also causes many many others to be led away from the path to liberation right along with them. Not only that, it makes everyone uncomfortable, it makes everyone unhappy. It’s nothing but negative. And so it is the poorest choice they could have made forever.

And so unlike that, I know that all of you have tremendous faith and devotion in the master and I can feel it. It’s obvious. And so you must maintain that as much as you possibly can and try to always use the methods to increase your faith and devotion. That’s very important. Once you rely upon a teacher to the degree that you all have relied and they did too. No matter what happens you’re supposed to apply the methods of Dharma teachings to increase your faith and devotion because that’s benefiting you. The teacher is there to benefit you. Not himself or herself. And so in this case all of this that’s happening to the Rigpa sangha, to Sogyal Rinpoche, it is a barche, an obstacle for the entire doctrine. Not only just one person, not only just one sangha, but the entire buddhist doctrine and it’s really such a shame, so unnecessary.

Matthew was my friend and student. Actually I really thought of him as having a very good and kind heart. I thought of him as a good person and I’ve known him for many years. I’ve given him many profound Dharma teachings and of course he’s probably been Sogyal Rinpoche’s student even many more years than that and received many teachings. So just because he may have thought he was physically harmed on one occasion and was offended by it. Is it really worth it? To do what he’s done as a retribution? Is it really worth it? It’s so kind of unusually surprising. It’s more like the rising up of the Maras, the demonic forces. And this is well known in Dharma that this obstacles come when something’s going really well and so I think that it’s somehow the magical play of non-human entities more than the humans that we are pinning it on. There’s more to this.

And also Damcho, in terms of her, she was also close with me. I thought she had an excellent character. She seemed to have tremendous faith in the teacher and when I hear that her name is on this list I thought its impossible to even imagine. How could it be the same person? It’s hard to even believe. Unbelievable! So that why I think that this is maybe the magical manifestation of mimayan, non human entities. Trying to destroy the doctrine in general Buddhism, in particular Nyingmapa and especially the Rigpa sangha and so what we need to do now is neutralize this. Just neutralize. Go into evenness and with faith towards the master and Dharma, lift ourselves up and be even stronger than ever before with faith in this doctrine of the Dzogpachenpo. More than ever before and to inspire others with our examples in this way. This is not a doctrine that’s new. This is thousands of years old. It is time-tested material. It delivers liberation to countless practitioners and has actually cultivated countless accomplished realized masters and scholars. We can have confidence in every single word of this doctrine. And so that’s what we need to learn, that’s what we need to practice, that’s what we need to have faith and devotion in. We don’t need to have faith and devotion in some lama coming along and making up his or her own idea and because you like that then you have faith for awhile because that’s gonna fall apart but this is time-tested. This doctrine that you’ve connected to, that Sogyal Rinpoche has connected to you. Gives you all the material you need to be liberated and bring others along that path. So always try to be in harmony with whatever Dharma says and never go off track just following your own whims or the customs of modern society. And so I’m telling all of you this because I know you have faith and I’m hoping that you will spread the word of what I’m saying. Therefore in this way its your responsibility to let everyone know how they should approach this obstacle and deal with it in their own minds and hearts as a sangha community. And anything that makes people unhappy in this and future lifetimes, whatever you do that’s negative like that in this life, it’ll bring you unhappiness but you can be assured that in the next life the karmic ripening is going to occur. Whatever we do that's negative if it doesn’t ripen up in this life, it will at some time or another. So we have to be very careful about all of our actions, thoughts, and words and so we shouldn’t do things that are harmful to others and that are not beneficial and that we get nothing from doing and that’s exactly what they’ve done. There’s no positive result anyway you look at it. There’s no benefit and there’s only the disturbance of thousands and thousands of people unnecessarily, so meaningless. And so in order to pacify these demons then we should practice according to the Sutra and Mantra tradition to the best of our ability. To hold up this tradition in this life and beyond with pure aspirations and excellent conduct. The Prayer for Excellent Conduct. We should try our best at least to be reborn miraculously in a Nirmanakaya pure realm if not liberated before that. So please think in this way carefully.

'Luopuminen' ei tee oikeutta Kevaddha suttalle, suttassa käsitellään monia eri aiheita, joita ovat esim.:
"Recollection of past lives,
Passing away and reappearance of beings,
Conversations with the Gods,
Mind reading,
Clairaudience,
Supranormal powers,
Mind-made body,
Insight-knowledge,
Miracle of instruction,
Miracle of telepathy,.."
jne..
  Luin (pikaisesti) tuon käännöksen opetuksesta jonka Buddha oli antanut Kevattalle että olisi selvinnyt missä yhteydessä Buddha antoi opetuksensa. Selvisihän se.  Kevatta oli ehdottanut että Buddha kutsuisi munkit koolle esittelemään yliluonnollisia kykyjään koska hän ajatteli että se edistäisi dharman uskottavuutta Nalandassa. Buddhan mielestä idea ei ollut loppuun asti ajateltu, koska aina olisi epäilijöitä ja toisinajattelioita, jotka haluaisivat väitellä ja puolustaa omaa perinnettään, mikä tilanne olisi omiaan halventamaan pyhää dharmaa. Loputa hän selosti pitkään mistä kaikesta harjoittajan pitää luopua ja pidättäytyä, jotta hän itse saavuttaisi nämä yliluonnolliset kyvyt, jotka tulevat puhtaan mielen kautta luonnostaan. Buddha ei kieltänyt etteikö niitä olisi, enkä tuosta oikein osaa tulkita että kykyjä ei pitäisi lainkaan käyttää. Viisaammat voivat korjata.

Itse olen hyödyntänyt divinaatiota Nepalissa ja kerran pyytänyt omaa lamaani pyytämään divinaatiota puolestani. Kysymykseni ovat olleet käytännön asioihin liittyviä ja vastaukset sen mukaisia ja hyviä.  En helposti  noudata muiden neuvoja, ja siksi en ole kysynyt mitään todella kohtalokasta harjoittamiseen ja polkuun liittyvää.

Keiltä näitä voi kysyä? Kehen ottaa yhteyttä? Saako divinaatioita Suomesta? Pitääkö ottaa yhteyttä johonkin luostariin?

Lama Dawa teki aikoinaan, mutta ei taida tehdä enää. Suomessa aina silloin tällöin vieraileva Lama Rabsang tekee, ja Orgyen Tobgyal Rinpoche. Kuvittelisin, että Lama Rabsangiin on helpointa ottaa yhteyttä kun hän on vierailulla Suomessa. Kysy vaikka tauon aikana, jospa hän tekisi sellaisen.

...

Tekstin pointtina näyttäisi niin ikään olevan, että ei ole ihan ok käyttää ennustuksia maallisten tarkoitusten edistämiseen. Henkisestä polusta ei niinkään puhuta mitään.

Kevaddha sutta tosiaan tekee hyvin selväksi että mikään ei ole korkeampaa kuin täydellinen luopuminen. Buddha taisi korostaa sitä että kaikki muu on kahletta joka sitoo meidät samsaraan.  Tuolla keskustelupalstoilla tätä suttaa kommentoidaan esim. näin:

    Dear Daniel,

    This is really about making this your livelihood. The point is that you accept almsfood on the implicit understanding that you will practice the Buddhist path, not that you will act as a doctor. If you get supported for acting as a doctor, you end up becoming a professional like any lay person.


Divinaatiosta on mielestäni kyselty täällä ennenkin. Jotkut tiibetinbuddhalaiset lamat ovat kehittäneet yhteytensä meditaatiojumaluuteensa tai guruunsa niin läheiseksi että voivat loihtia päteviä vastauksia kiperiin kysymyksiin. Olen joskus pyytänyt näitä palveluita ja saanut selkeitä vastauksia. Kysymys voi olla tyyliin: tekisinkö niin tai näin? Silloin eri vaihtoehdoille saa vastauksena että joku valinta on paras, joku on huonoin jne. Joiltakin voi kysyä laajempia kysymyksiä elämän ja henkisen kehityksen asioista ja saada hyvin tarkkoja vastauksia. Kuka on minun guruni, mikä on jumaluuteni, mitä meditoisin jne.
Mielestäni kannattaa aina pitää mielessä että munkeilta ja mestareilta voi saada neuvoja kahdenlaisiin kysymyksiin a) miten voin olla onnellisempi täällä samsarassa ja b) miten voin vapautua samsarasta, eli valaistua.  Kausaalitasolla Buddhan neuvot ovat molempiin kysymyksiin yhtenevät. Myöhemmin, kun luopumisesta tulee totta, buddhalainen polku tarkentuu huomattavasti.

Kevaddha suttassa oleva "alhaisten taitojen" (lowly arts) luettelo  on kaikenkaikkiaan mielenkiintoinen. Alla on vain osa siitä, jotkin niistä ovat varmaaankin sallittuja maallikoille, kuten accounting (kirjanpito)!
Oikea elinkeino on osa Kahdeksan osaista polkua, ja tarkoitettu myös maalikkoseuraajille. En usko että ne kaikki tulevat harmittomiksi, jos niistä ei peri maksua...

"Whereas some brahmans and contemplatives, living off food given in faith, maintain themselves by wrong livelihood, by such lowly arts as:

    reading marks on the limbs [e.g., palmistry];
    reading omens and signs;
    interpreting celestial events [falling stars, comets];
    interpreting dreams;
    reading marks on the body [e.g., phrenology];

Valitettavasti Buddha Gautama on kertonut kaikenlaisen ennustamisen olevan väärä elinkeino, katso Kevaddha suttan kohdassa The Great Section on Virtue  www.accesstoinsight.org/tipitaka/dn/dn.11.0.than.html

Onneksi ennustamisesta, vaikka sitä harjoittaisikin, ei ole välttämätöntä tehdä elinkeinoa.
