Dependent Origination (प्रतीत्यसमुत्पाद pratītyasamutpāda)
Pratītyasamutpāda – 
A name given by the historical Buddha to the arising of samsaric phenomena, variously rendered into English as “dependent origination”, “conditional genesis”, “dependent co-arising”, “inter dependent arising”.

“Commonly translated as dependent origination, or dependent arising, is a key principle in Buddhist teachings, which states that all dharmas (“phenomena”) arise in dependence upon other dharmas: “if this exists, that exists; if this ceases to exist, that also ceases to exist”.

The principle is expressed in the links of dependent origination (Pali: dvādasanidānāni, Sanskrit: dvādaśanidānāni) in Buddhism, a linear list of twelve elements from the Buddhist teachings which arise depending on the preceding link. Traditionally the list is interpreted as describing the conditional arising of rebirth in saṃsāra, and the resultant duḥkha (suffering, pain, unsatisfactoriness). ” (from wikipedia)

The Garland of Views
“In A Garland of Views, Padmasambhava compares the different vehicles on the basis of three criteria–view, meditation, and result. He devotes the final section of the text to a comparison using a fourth criterion–spiritual training and yogic discipline or conduct. Of all these, the view is of paramount importance. The way we look at the world decides the path we will take, whether spiritual or otherwise. When we see things erroneously, we create our own (and others’) suffering, and if we are to change our condition, we need to make radical changes to our view of reality. Once the view has been established, we can meditate on it, training our minds by means of spiritual practice and tuning our activities through appropriate conduct, until we finally achieve the result. The particular view with which a person thus sets out on the spiritual path depends on his or her particular mental disposition. It is because individuals present such a variety of dispositions, with different degrees of ability and readiness to understand and accept certain views, that the Buddha and his spiritual heirs taught the different vehicles that are outlined in this text and described in order of the increasing subtlety and profundity of their corresponding views.”

“A Garland of Views presents both a concise commentary by the eighth-century Indian Buddhist master Padmasambhava on a chapter from the Guhyagarbha Tantra on the different Buddhist and non-Buddhist philosophical views, including the Great Perfection (Dzogchen)”
(cr. A Garland of Views A Guide to View, Meditation, and Result in the Nine Vehicles)

It is with great joy, after three years of hard work, that we are announcing the completion of the Nepal volume in our forthcoming series of pilgrimage guides dedicated to Guru Rinpoche‘s life and deeds. To inaugurate this special event, we wish to invite you to join us this autumn as we follow in the footsteps of our precious Lotus-Born Guru, Padmasambhava, travelling to the holy sites of Nepal, where he taught, practiced and accomplished the Dharma.
This, our first official Guru Rinpoche pilgrimage, will be taking place in the auspicious Tibetan Year of the Bird – the same year in which, generations ago, the precious Jarung Kashor, otherwise known as the Boudhanath Stupa, was completed and consecrated.

Six Vajra Lines Accumulation

Kyabgön Phakchok Rinpoche has asked his sangha as well as all who are inspired to take part to accumulate 10,000,000 (ten million) recitations of the Six Vajra Verse supplication yearly starting from this Guru Rinpoche Day.

So far of you have accumulated 215,489 recitations of this prayer. To reach the target of 1,000,000 a year, we need to as a group increase our effort four fold! Please help to make this goal a reality.

This blessed supplication was revealed as a treasure by the great treasure revealer Chokgyur Dechen Lingpa in the 19th century. The first three lines are supplications to three forms of Guru Rinpoche, the fourth line is requesting Guru Rinpoche to grant blessings, the fifth line is requesting that all levels of obstacles may be removed, and the sixth line is requesting that all wishes may be spontaneously accomplished.

It is taught that there is no greater refuge in these times than Guru Padmasambhava. Make this supplication with a sense of weariness towards samsara, with love and compassion towards all sentient beings, and a heart full of genuine devotion. There is no doubt that the blessings will manifest in one’s mind stream when you supplicate in this way.

You may recite this supplication during your daily practice sessions as well as while going about your daily activities.

We have started a new counter which both tracks your personal contribution as well as the unified total. The page also has more information on the chant as well as links to teachings and commentaries on this profound supplication.

The Importance of Failure – Guru Rinpoche day message by HE. Phakchok Rinpoche

03 Jul’17
(คำแปลภาษาไทย https://www.facebook.com/RangjungYesheThailand/posts/1581638288547939 วีดีโอมีภาษาไทยแปลโดยการกดปุ่มวงกลมด้านล่างของวีดีโอ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2g6mys_Hc44)

Dear Friends Near and Far,

Hello. Happy Guru Rinpoche Day again.

Today I want to share with you the sixth of the Twelve Manifestations of Guru Padmasambhava. His name is Guru Pema Jungney, the Lotus Born Guru. Guru Rinpoche himself explained, “I taught many times in the beginning how to practice and how to gain blessings and siddhis and liberations, improvements. But my disciples in the future, those people are going to be very lazy, and will not be able to practice well.” So he actually taught six or seven different ways to gain realization and liberation: how to gain improvements through seeing, through tasting, through smelling, through touching, through reading, and such like that. Guru Pema Jungney has very great teachings of the six or seven different ways of liberation.

With that, I just want to say, in normal life, what we really need when we make mistakes or when we go through difficulties is a different way to see something. When you make a mistake, yes, I know that you really feel like a failure. You made a mistake or you feel down. You feel self-judgment. You feel negative. But always know that whenever you make mistakes, you need to encourage yourself to want to do better, and that you want to improve yourself. Don’t, how do you say, discourage yourself. Whenever you face obstacles or challenges in life, when you fail in life, try to think that it is an opportunity for improvement and to become more mature through your experiences. Because in life, you will always fail. In spiritual, you are always going to fail. And I really encourage you to see that failing is important. Every time you fail, you stand up. You keep trying. You keep doing it. Do that in the spiritual way and do that in the mundane way. You will get better and better. When you are stopped when you fail, or when you are stopped when you judge yourself and you really feel bad, that is the time of really big obstacles. So don’t look at it that way. Always see difficult things as a kind of way of encouraging, experiencing, and getting more mature. So keep that in mind and remember Guru Pema Jungney.

I like to share this with all of you: be happy and whatever you’ve done, the mistakes, improve yourself. If you’re chasing some difficulties, don’t judge everybody. Don’t judge yourself. Don’t judge others. Think instead, “It is my experience” and you get stronger. Stand up and do well. Easy to say. Difficult to do. But don’t forget. Then you will get better each time.

Thank you very much. Happy Guru Rinpoche Day.

The construction is progressing along steadily thanks to the generous donations we have received. As you can see from the latest progress report below, the main building is really starting to take shape. Yet there is still a lot of work to be done before we reach completion.

What better chance to make merit than contributing to a such a wonderful construction on the Vajravārāhī pilgrimage site? Any donation you give, large or small will create a karmic link with this sacred site. An investment in the future preservation of the Buddha’s teachings is certainly a great opportunity to rejoice!
