My Dharma talks with Dharma friends on Facebook
Here is one of my newest important Dharma talk with Dharma friends on Facebook:
Namo Amitabha, hi everyone, you should remember not to call other person by a name of an animal or an insect therefore you will be born as that kind of animal or insect. E.g. When a person call the other person "You are a cow or a cockroach", next life the person who insults will be born as a cow or a cockroach. Except for calling the other person by a name of a loving pet such as loving puppy or loving cat, etc. without looking down to him or her. I will do repentant and reform ceremony for you but you must repent and reform of what you said to other person. www.TrueHappiness.ws and www.NamoAmitabha.ws
Here are my translation work for girls of Girls' Generations:
Are Jewelries and gems happiness?
When BUDDHA was still on earth, there was a King named Davita who worshiped all 69 Non-Buddhist religions. One day, the King wished to donate very much of his properties which was as tall as a mountain, he said whoever came to ask for donation, he'll give that person a handful of his valuable properties.
Many people came to ask for his donations but his mountain-like valuable properties still look as full as the beginning mountain of properties.
Buddha knew the King had many great blessings before who can be taught and transformed, Buddha immediately transformed into a Bramàcàrin (A Buddhist ascetic with his will set on purity) and visited the King. The King was very happy, after he bowed down respectfully in front of Buddha, he asked:
- Please let me know what you need, I am happy to donate you.
The Bramàcàrin replied: I am from faraway land, wish to ask Your Honor for precious gems to exchange for money and buy materials to build house.
The King replied: I am very happy, please take a handful of my properties.
The Bramàcàrin took a handful of the King's properties, walked seven steps and then came back and put a handful of properties back where it belongs.
The King asked: Why don't you take a handful of my properties?
- With a handful of properties, I can build a house, but unfortunately I also have to get married, therefore I don't have enough money (from selling the King's properties), therefore I don't want to take.
- I give you three more handful of my properties.
The Bramàcàrin took three more handful of properties, walked seven steps then returned.
- What is the problem?
- I have enough money for marriage, but where is the money to buy land for cultivate rice, servants and maids, buffaloes and horses, I figure out there aren't enough, therefore I'd rather don't take your properties.
- All right, I give you more seven handful of my properties.
- The Bramàcàrin took seven handful of properties, walked seven steps and then returned.
- Why haven't you satisfied yet?
- If I have children, I must have wedding ceremonies for them, go shopping, and have a party with my child-in-law's parents and my friends, I figure out I don't have enough money, therefore I don't want to take your properties.
- I'm happy to donate all of my properties. You should take them all to have enough money!
The Bramàcàrin stepped on mountain of valuable properties and then stepped down saying he don't want to take properties.
The King wondered very much then he asked:
- What are your opinions? I really don't understand.
- I wanted to ask for your properties for a living. But I realize a human being's life doesn't last long, everything is also impermanent, difficult to keep them.
Even if I have your mountain of valuable properties, I never have quite benefits for myself. The more you worry and desire, the more you have to work hard and are in vain, you would better than eliminate desires, wish for the Way of liberation from the cycle of rebirths and deaths, cultivate good deeds and virtues for yourself, for your family, for your society, all aim for the goal of compassion and wisdom and would be much better, therefore I don't want to take your properties.
At that time, the King awoke, his mind became purer and brighter, wished to hear Dharma.
The Bramàcàrin quickly said a verse:
Even if one person has a precious golden mountain
As high as the blue sky
Having that much of worldly properties
Not better than seeing the Way (Buddhist cultivations, Buddha's teachings or Dharma)
Life is suffering but you think it is happy,
The Way is precious but you don't like it
Your attachments and clinging views are suffering but you think they are happiness,
Those things will harm you.
After saying the verse, the Bramàcàrin turned into a Buddha's rewarding body with splendid Halo and aura, the King and his court officials were very happy and asked Buddha for being a Buddhist and keep the five precepts, became a Sotapanna or attained the Path of Stream Winning.

Commentary of story teller: "Human being's life is very short, it goes as quick as a lightning under views of heavenly beings, Bodhisattvas and Buddhas. There is no one who can lives forever without dying, therefore no one can live forever. Therefore we should eliminate greed and donate for the poor. Abundance doesn't belong to us forever but often because of it, we harm ourselves." Sincerely, buddhist Hue Quang.
Namo Amitabha, hi guys, here are what Buddha preached in the Sutra Tọa Thiền Tam Muội:
When the death arrive, it doesn't tell you when
Today you do these things,
Tomorrow you do other things,
You are sunk in desires and don't see sufferings yet,
Suddenly, your death arrives.
You keep busy to take care of your worldly affairs,
You also take care of other people's worldly affairs,
When the death arrive, it doesn't tell you when,
When the death arrive, you cannot hide.
Like a deer which is thirsty,
Lower its head to drink water from a stream,
A hunter without compassion kills the deer,
Don't wait for the deer to complete drinking water.
The fool are likewise,
Working busily to build things of ownership,
When the death arrive, it doesn't tell him when,
Who can protect him?
People wish to be rich,
Enjoy the five desires (1) but still don't satisfy,
Like the worldly kings,
None of them can avoid death.
Even the 'immortals' (2)
None of them can avoid death,
When the wild elephant of impermanence arrives,
Earthworms and ants also become soil.
Explanations: (1) Five desires are women's beauty, richness and talent, fame, eating, sleeping.
(2) 'Immortals' are people who live in forest
or mountain to stay away from women, contaminated human's environments,
noises, colorful stuffs to purify their mind and energy and to keep
their sperms. They can live 500 up to 800 years old.
Namo Amitabha, hi guys, BUDDHA preached Four bad things that harm yourselves in the Dhamapada Sutra, the Impermanence chapter. Here are ~what Buddha preached~:
You are lazy day and night,
You are old but still have lust,
You have money but don't donate,
You don't obey my Teachings,
Those are four bad things,
That deceive and harm you.
Sincerely, buddhist Hue Quang.
Namo Amitabha, hi Tiffany, during your day time, every guy have to recite Shakymuni Buddha's name 100 times or more to have more precious Wisdom and recite Amitabha Buddha's name 200 times or more to plant your good roots to reborn in Pure Land later .
Human being's unfortunates
It's very rare to meet Dharma,
It's very rare to meet a good Dharma teacher,
It's very rare to have a human body this life,
It's very rare to have enough sense organs of a physical body,
It's very rare to have a right view of Dharma,
It's very rare to make a mind of belief,
It's very rare to stay with each other (or one another) for a long time (or in a lifetime),
It's very rare to meet a genuinely happy person.
The Sutra Đại Tát Giá Ni Kiền Tử Sở Thuyết, phẩm Tam luận thứ ba.
Human life is like a fish in a pond which is reducing water gradually (because of hot weather)
Day or night,
Either go or stop and stay,
Like a large river flows strongly,
Every thought never stops for a rest.
You sleep at one night,
Your longevity reduces one night,
Like a fish in a pond of gradually-reduced water,
There is nothing funny!
The Sutra Kim Sắc Đồng Tử Nhân Duyên (book 1).
Sincerely, buddhist Hue Quang.
Everyday passes, a person's longevity reduces
Today is over,
Like a fish in a pond with gradually-reduced water,
There is nothing funny!
With unequal works,
And unlike opinions,
One day passes,
Even if longevity is 100 years,
Sleeping time is half.
The Dhamapada Sutra, the second chapter Impermanence. Are you guỵs waking up yet? More verse for you on your next picture.
Sincerely, buddhist Hue Quang.
A human being's lifetime is as quick as a buffalo driven to a slaughter-house
Like a Candala (1)
Drive a buffalo to a slaughter-house,
Its life is going to end by its every step,
Human being's lifetime is similar.
The Ma Ha Ma Gia Sutra (quyển thượng).
Explanation: (1) Candala is the lowest class of ancient India. They work as a butcher.
Namo Amitabha, hi leader of Girls' Generation girls, hi guys, here is my last Dharma talk about waking up for you:
Why do we need to get out of the cycle of rebirths and deaths?
In the first part 'Life is sufferings' of the Four Noble Truths, BUDDHA preached about 8 sufferings of every human beings' life. Even though human life's sufferings is innumerable, these sufferings are the biggest. They are: 01. Being born, 02.Old age, 03. Sickness, 04. Death, 05. Far away from loved ones, 06. Seeing disliked ones, 07. Unfulfilled wishes, 08. Enlarged five aggregates. All sentient beings die and rebirth, then die again continuously in the six realms of the cycle of rebirths. They are heavenly being (God) realm, Asura (Titan) realm, human being realm, animal realm, hungry ghost realm, hell realm. The eight sufferings are applied to them but human beings have the most. Heavenly beings are happier than human beings but they still have unfulfilled wishes and eventually fall into the cycle of rebirths again after their very long lifetime. Asura is sufferings by continuous defeats by battles with Gods and losing their pretty female Asuras to Gods. Domestic animals such as buffaloes, oxes and cows, donkeys, horses are suffering by hard works for humans; goats, pigs, ducks, chickens are suffering from being killed for meats; wild beasts and others are suffering from ignorant, dirty, eating one another. In hungry ghost realm, hungry ghosts have stinky body, ugly body with stomach as big as a drum but throat is as small as a needle, mouth blows out fire, suffered from hunger and thirst for thousands of lifetimes. Hell realm has large pans of boiling oils, posts with flames of fire, icy pits, mountains of swords and knives; there are no words can describe sufferings in hell realm. The Asura realm, hungry ghost realm, animal realm and hell realm are called the four evil realms. The sufferings are double for each lower realms counting from Asura realm. In six realms of Samsara (the cycle of rebirths and deaths), sentient beings die then rebirth, then die again in different realms of Samsara like a wheel running without knowing where is the starting point. Being born in heavenly being realm and human being realm are very hard and very rare, but being born in the four evil realms are very easy and innumerable.
Sincerely, buddhist Hue Quang.
Namo Amitabha, here is the Greatest Waking Up for you guys ... You should read every words of this paragraph and think very carefully for Yourselves:
When BUDDHA was still in the world, one day Buddha used his finger nail to take a little soils, then asked Ananda: Dear Ananda, soils in my finger nail and soils of the great earth, which ones are more?
Ananda replied: Dear World-Honored One, soils of the earth are more than soils in your finger nails countless times, unable to compare.
Buddha preached: Likewise, Ananda, number of sentient beings who are born upward in heavenly being realm and human being realm are like soils in my finger nail, and number of sentient beings who are born downward in the four evil realms are like soils of the great earth.
Sincerely, buddhist Hue Quang.
Namo Amitabha, hi Tiffany, when you stay near me, you should wear very simple clothes, less colors and patterns is much better, don't promise me anything because we aren't husband, wife, boyfriend, girlfriend. When you are in classroom or practice and cultivate Dharma, the only clothes you should wear is light blue buddhist's shirt, pants and gown. Your hair should be tied up, no fragrant or perfume, no jewelries and watch, no high heels, no tight clothes, etc.
Amitabha, hi Tiffany, like you know, I am a very high devine. But don't be scare, I used to be a normal person like you guys, didn't know anything about Dharma and didn't see any changes from the clouds and the sky. Like every buddhist and every Monk and Nun, I must cultivate from the ground up to who I am today.
Namo Amitabha, hi Seohyun, lights on the performance stage can light your physical body temporarily. Radiant lights you have when practicing and cultivating Dharma will shine your Dharma body permanently :) Don't decorate your physical body with too much clothes, the more clothes you own, the more you'll be tied into the cycle of rebirths. Instead of using that much money for clothes to decorate your physical body, you should use it to adorn your Dharma body by spending it for your cultivations. Physical body is temporary but Dharma body is permanent Seohyun. Good physical body doesn't get admiration from Devines but good Dharma body will certainly do, sincerely, buddhist Hue Quang.
Namo Amitabha, hi Sunny, your name is pretty. You should see how the sun, sky and clouds work while I am there to believe much much more ^o^ Buddhism is very much more easy and excited than most people think.
Namo Amitabha, hi lady Tiffany, no love: No anger, no love: No sadness, no love: No regret, no love: No thinking, no love: No worry, no love: No remember, and your mind will be very calm and tranquil.
Namo Amitabha, hi lady, recite Amitabha Buddha's name to plant good roots to reborn in Pure Land, the Land of Utmost Bliss later. Recite Shakyamuni Buddha's name to have my personal precious Wisdoms later. Namo Amitabha Buddha, Namo Amitabha Buddha, Namo Amitabha Buddha, Namo Amitabha Buddha, Namo Amitabha Buddha, and so on. Namo Shakyamuni Buddha, Namo Shakyamuni Buddha, Namo Shakyamuni Buddha, Namo Shakyamuni Buddha, Namo Shakyamuni Buddha, and so on.
Namo Amitabha, hi future Buddhas or Buddhas-to-be, when you guys buy me a one-way airplane ticket, I can fly by airplane to you guys. At the present time, you are also a Buddha when you are awaken and begin to practice and cultivate what Shakyamuni Buddha preached. But when you aren't awaken and don't practice and cultivate what Shakyamuni Buddha preached, you are still a sentient being. You guys have a Buddha within you and that Buddha is your Buddha mind (real mind, permanent mind: The only real thing you own in the cycle of rebirths, everything else isn't permanent). You guys need to awake your Buddha within you by realize the absolute Truths of Buddhism and then make a Bodhi mind, practice, cultivate what Shakyamuni Buddha preached.
Sincerely, buddhist Hue Quang.
Namo Amitabha, oh you guys know Vietnamese language too ~~ If you guys know Vietnamese I don't have to talk to you guys in English. Today you guys should: 01. Recite the phrase 'Om Mani Pad Me Hum' 50 times. Om Mani Pad Me Hum is the most famous phrase and the most reciting phrase of Tibetan (Tibet) Buddhism, 02. Recite Avolokitesvara Bodhisattva (Quan Yin Bodhisattva) 30 times to plant good roots to reborn in Pure Land later and to have Good Relationship with Him (She has no sex like human), to have more Wisdom, to have less lust, to have no anger. Ways to recite 'Namo Avolokitesvara Bodhisattva' or 'Namo Quan Yin Bodhisattva', 03. Recite Great Strength Bodhisattva (Mahasthamaprapta Bodhisattva) 20 times to plant good roots of reborning in Pure Land later and to have Good Relationship with Him (She has no sex like human.) Ways to recite are: 'Namo Great Strength Bodhisattva' or 'Namo Mahasthamaprapta Bodhisattva', and 04. Recite Amitabha Buddha at least 100 times or more when you can to plant good roots of reborning in Pure Land later and to have Good Relationship with Him. Ways to recite are: 'Amitabha' or 'Namo Amitabha' or 'Namo Amitabha Buddha'.
Namo Amitabha, hi guys, I slept just a few hours last night and feel tired. Today I worked for my friend and feel tired much more. Tomorrow I work for him too and I hope to feel much better. BUDDHAs and Bodhisattvas told me to give you guys 2 days to decide but I give you guys 3 days to decide. After 3 days, you don't do what I say and you guys will lose Me f o r e v e r. You guys know buddhist Sage never tell a lie. You guys should do what I tell you to do so I can see you guys there. What I have today is the results from I always listen to BUDDHAs and Bodhisattvas. We value our precious time very much to cultivate not like worldly people. You guys should value your time to cultivate likewise too ... Remember guys like I talk Dharma to you before: Like Shakyamuni Buddha preached, the number of extremely lucky human beings who are born as a human being or heavenly being next life is only as little as the number of soils in Buddha's finger nail and the number of human beings who are born in the four evil paths are as much as soils on the great earth! Don't think you are still young and still have very much free time because impermanence don't prejudice whether you are young or old ... Sorry today I feel sleepy and can't have Dharma talks today but tomorrow I will try to have Dharma talks for you guys, sincerely, buddhist Hue Quang.
Namo Amitabha, hi Yoona, sorry for Dharma mistake last night. Here is the correct preachings from Shakyamuni Buddha from The Sutra of 42 Chapters, chapter 11: The Buddha said: "It is better to feed one good man than to feed one hundred bad men. It is better to feed one who observes the five precepts of Buddha than to feed one thousand good men. It is better to feed one Srotaâpanna than to feed ten thousands of those who observe the five precepts of Buddha. It is better to feed one Skridâgâmin than to feed one million of Srotaâpannas. It is better to feed one Anâgâmin than to feed ten millions of Skridâgâmins. It is better to feed one Arhat than to feed one hundred millions of Anâgâmins. It is better to feed one Pratyekabuddha than to feed one billion of Arhats. It is better to feed one of the Buddhas, either of the present, or of the past, or of the future, than to feed ten billions of Pratyekabuddhas. It is better to feed one who is above knowledge, onesidedness, discipline, and enlightenment than to feed one hundred billions of Buddhas of the past, present, or future." I talk Dharma to you more this evening, sincerely, buddhist Hue Quang.
Namo Amitabha, hi guys, here are some quick Dharma for you guys: 01. Cultivation is not chanting everyday but to change all afflictions in your mind. This is called cultivation. Dharma Master Chin Kung, 02. Buddhism is an Education. Buddhism is not a religion. We don't worship Buddha but we respect Him as a Teacher. His doctrines save us from sufferings, and help us attain True Happiness, 03. Better being a poor person with peaceful and happy mind Than being a rich person with afflictions and many desires, 04. We should cultivate Buddha's Teachings to understand fully about life and the universe, 05. Building a virtuous lifestyle is to think kindly, say kindly and do kindly for the benefits of others, 06. True love has no distinguish, no grasp, and give unconditional. We can share this love with all sentient being. Such love is called Compassion.
Sincerely, buddhist Hue Quang.
Namo Amitabha, hi Châu, I like your braid hairs. Visit my website www.NamoAmitabha.ws, www.Brogme.com and my Facebook account often for more Dharma teachings and instructions, sincerely, your old friend Liêm
Namo Amitabha, hi guys, like I said yesterday, here are my last Dharma teachings and instructions for you guys, they are all FREE, here are they:
01. Life is impermanent and sufferings
Everyone spends their lifetime by 4 different stages or less: 01. Being born, 02. Getting old, 03. Getting sick and 04. Dying. A typical lifetime of everyone is: When you're 20 years old, when you wake up, you want love. When you are 30 years old, when waking up, you want marriage. When you're 40 years old, when waking up in the morning, you want success. When being 50 years old, when you wake up, you want to be rich. When you're 60 years old, when you wake up, you want abundance. When you are 70, when waking up, you want to be healthy. When you are 80, you just want to be able to wake up ... Enjoy any moments of your life today and later. Don't forget impermanence can happen at any time ... Listen to BUDDHA's precious advices and start practicing and cultivating as soon as you guys can, sincerely, translator Hue Quang.
Namo Amitabha, second translation: 02. We Must Cultivate For Much More Blessings
Buddhist Lý Mộc Nguyên (a Chinese buddhist) appeared and talked Dharma to us, everyone could see him. So far, which restaurant did he go for meals? When he was hungry, he took out small bowl, plate, he need two or three piastres (small unit of money) to have a simple supper at home, what does this mean? He had saved his money for donations and making offerings. By donations and making offerings, he had much blessings but he didn't use his blessings, he transferred his blessings to others, then his blessings will accumulate forever there, to accumulate more Merits and Blessings. Normal people practices and cultivates and then spend all of their blessings, therefore when they die, they don't have any Merits or Blessings left. There is no Merits, and none of Blessings neither, therefore they'll be born in the three evil paths (the three malicious paths). When you have much Blessings, how could you be born in the three evil paths? When they practice and cultivate all their lifetime to accumulate Merits and Blessings, how could they be born in the three evil paths? By enjoying and spending all their blessings then they are born in the three evil paths.
Dharma talk given by world famous Dharma Master Venerable Chin Kung.
Translation 03. Be Content With What You Have
Rice and vegetables could help you have no hunger temporarily,
A simple house could protect you from wind and fog,
When your mind has contentment and no greed,
No more afflictions follow your mind.
Author: Great Chinese Master and Pure Land Patriarch Quang An. Amitabha Buddha appeared as a Chinese Buddhist monk named Quang An to teach and transform sentient beings.
Translation 04. Compassion is unlimited motivations for suffering sentient beings, is the cool and sweet dews for people who is burn by worldly flames regardless of their swimming for cooling. But that love (compassion) must be for the benefits of others, and has no selfishness. Selfish love not only couldn't be able to reduce sentient beings' sufferings but also make them sink further into the sea of sufferings. Unselfish love is boundless, cover all sentient beings, harmonious to all sentient beings. A person has this compassion for all sentient beings, he or she is indeed a compassionate mother who is taking care of his or her innocent children. All sufferings, all unfortunates will be melt down when they meet this kind of compassion. How noble! How precious! How wonderful! Who has maintain and embrace this unlimited compassion. An excerpt of Dharma talk given by Vietnamese most famous Zen Master Venerable Thích Thanh Từ. He is my most adorable Zen Monk. He is author, translator, Dharma writer, buddhist and Monks trainer, like a world famous Chinese Monk Master Quang Kham, he has helped to establish many Zen monasteries and pagodas for his monk disciples without owning anything for himself!...
My last translation for today 05. Great Advices Of Pure Land Patriarch and Great Master Quang An
01. Whether you're a buddhist or a Buddhist monk, you have to respect the elders and be harmonious to the youngers, be patient to things that are hard to be patient by others, do things that are hard to do by others, do other people's hard chores.
02. When sitting down to relax or meditate, often think about your faults.
03. When having discussions or leisure talks, don't talk about other people's faults.
04. When walking, standing, lying down, sitting down, eating, wearing clothes, from sunrise to sunset, from sunset to sunrise, you only recite Amitabha Buddha's name without pause, or recite His name softly without sound or recite His name in your mind.
05. Besides reciting Amitabha Buddha's name, don't have any other thoughts. When any fault thoughts (misleading thoughts) arise, immediately abandon them.
06. Often have shameful mind and repentant mind.
07. When you're cultivating, you must realize your Merits and Blessings are still shallow, you shouldn't proud of yourself and boast.
08. You take care of your own business only, don't involve to other people's businesses.
09. You should look at beautiful forms only, don't look at ugly forms.
10. You should see other as Bodhisattvas and you're a worldly person.
11. If you could cultivate like what I advice, you will definitely reborn in the Pure Land of Utmost Bliss ... Namo Amitabha Buddha.
Namo Amitabha, hi guys, a few more weeks, Buddhist community will celebrate Shakyamuni Buddha's Birthday. A special day which Shakyamuni Buddha was born on earth as a Prince in India about 2,500 years ago. When He was born, He walked 7 steps and on the seventh step, He stood still with one finger pointing to the sky and one finger pointing to the earth and said "Above the sky and under the sky, only Me is the World Honored One." BUDDHA didn't make the handgun symbols because Buddha has great compassion. Buddha's Birthday is the biggest holiday of Buddhist community. One Vietnamese buddhist website on Facebook invited Vietnamese on Facebook to change their Avatar picture to Shakyamuni Buddha's picture to let other people know Buddha's Birthday is near and to plant Buddhist good roots to them. Of course, I'm not a Buddha, lol, I just change my avatar. If you guys want to change your avatar, you should visit this link https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=453725484702250&set=a.262971937110940.61328.258502930891174&type=1&theater sincerely, buddhist Hue Quang.
Namo Amitabha, hi guys and your boy, whose boys is it? Your boy Tiffany? Or yours Sunny? Or yours Taeyeon? He looks handsome and intellectual. Have fun with him guys, talk more Dharma to him if you guys can. You look pretty Tiffany. Hi Sunny and Taeyeon.
Namo Amitabha, hi guys and your boy, whose boys is it? Your boy Teayeon? Or yours Seohyun? He looks tall and Korean. Have fun with him guys, talk more Dharma to him if you guys can.
Namo Amitabha, hi Vinnie, visit my websites to have more Wisdoms: www.TrueHappiness.ws and www.TuVaHanh.com and www.NamoAmitabha.ws
Namo Amitabha, hi Tiffany and Jessica, I know you guys are from America because you have American names, you speak English so well, much better than me and Tiffany said she grew up in LA, CA with her dad. Seohyun sang English very well but she may not be an American. Sunny is from Philippines and other guys are from other countries but you guys joined a Girls' Generations and stay in Korean. Seohyun, Tiffany and Jessica can understand English so well and understand my Dharma talks in my websites well. You guys may not need excellent Buddhist translator because Tiffany and Jessica just need to learn more Buddhist vocabularies in English and Korean, sincerely, buddhist Hue Quang.
Namo Amitabha, hi guys, here are some Dharma for you:
A verse in The Sutra Shakyamuni Buddha preached The Amitabha Buddha
Clever to keep good karma of mouth, don't talk badly about others,
Clever to keep good karma of body, keep Precepts and be solemn,
Clever to keep good karma of mind, purify one's mind.
Namo Amitabha, hi guys, famous Zen Master Ajanh Chah preached "Anyone can build a brick house or a wooden house. But that isn't your house because that's worldly house depends on the law of impermanence. Peaceful and blissful mind is truly your house." He is right because Buddha preached "You are what you think." and "Your Buddha mind is your gem." Your Buddha mind with Wisdom you gain from Dharma, you can tell your mind, your mouth and your body to make good deeds, avoid bad deeds, purify your mind, practice meditations and Pure Land, cultivate rightly to build your wonderful and forever Dharma body. Cultivated mind can protect yourself from problems, troubles from worldly life.
Namo Amitabha or Amitabha, hi Tiffany and Jessica, don't be afraid of the word 'Namo' because whoever see the word 'Namo Amitabha' or 'Nam Mô A Di Đà Phật' in Vietnamese, they'll have good root(s) to reborn in Pure Land of Amitabha Buddha later. I'm very happy you guys understand English very well therefore you can understand my Dharma talks very well. You can translate my Dharma talks to your Korean girlfriends therefore they can also understand my Dharma talks.
Namo Amitabha, hi guys, a Vietnamese Venerable named Khanh Anh said a famous verse:
"When you cultivate without studying Dharma, you are cultivating blindly,
When you studying Dharma without cultivations, you are just Dharma books without attaining anythings from Buddhadharma."
Namo Amitabha, Ananda is one main disciple of Shakyamuni Buddha. Ananda preached in Śūraṃgama-samādhi-sūtra "Mountains can disappear, moon can fall down, but what SHAKYAMUNI BUDDHA preached will never change." No one can see mountains disappear or moon falls down but heavenly beings can see those happen. One day of the lowest heaven is as equal as 50 years of the earth. The lowest heaven is where the Four Heavenly Kings reside. One day of the second lowest heaven or Tusita heaven is as equal as 100 years of the earth. Tusita heaven is where Maitreya Bodhisattva resides and is preaching Dharma to heavenly beings. His other name is Big Belly Buddha, Happy Buddha or Buddha of the future. Maitreya Bodhisattva, Shakyamuni Buddha and Amitabha Buddha cultivated Buddhism at the same time in one life. But the different time that They become a BUDDHA is very different because of their different levels of diligence of cultivations.

Namo Amitabha, yeah you guys should cover your legs with long dress. Try to reduce your lustful clothes with moral dresses as much as you can -_- -_- Visit my website www.NamoAmitabha.ws and read my Dharma talk about my old highschool gf Ngân's sad story. She broke her thigh because of showing her big thighs and calves so much. Some guys died because of doing bad deeds for money to have 'a leg to die for' like her when they look at her thighs and calves. They had many bad karma, died, became ghosts and followed her for revenge. She broke her thigh and sadly she had to stayed in hospital for a long time. You guys may also have ghosts following you for revenge -_- Remember guys, I am a multi level Budhhist Sage, an Arhat and a Buddhist Patriarch after Dharma Master Hsuan Hua therefore I don't tell you any lies. Not a single lie because I don't have time for lying, losing my precious Merits, losing my reputations to my Superiors, sincerely, Buddhist Sage Thich Tam Tinh
Namo Amitabha, here some more Dharma teachings for you guys:
A Famous Verse About Pure Land. Original from old Vietnamese language:
Ái hà thiên xích lãng,
Khổ ải vạn trùng ba,
Dục thoát luân hồi khổ,
Tảo cấp niệm Di Đà.
Translated into Vietnamese:
Sông ái dài muôn dặm,
Biển mê sóng vạn tầm,
Muốn thoát luân hồi khổ,
Gấp niệm (hồng danh Phật) A Di Đà.
Translated into English:
The river of desires is miles long,
The waves of ignorance sea are very high,
If you want to have liberation from the cycle of rebirths and deaths,
Recite Amitabha Buddha's name quickly. In other words: Practice Pure Land Buddhism quickly.
Namo Amitabha, here is a very Wise advice from world famous Dharma Master Chin Kung:
YOU MUST HAVE WISDOM WHEN STUDYING BUDDHISM
Where is Wisdom from? In the current age, the origin of Wisdom is from reading, listening to Sutras and reciting Amitabha Buddha's name only. If you read and listen to Sutras but don't recite Amitabha Buddha's name, you attain Wisdom very slowly. If you reciting Amitabha Buddha's name but don't read and listen to Sutras, you also attain Wisdom very slowly. Therefore, if you read and listen to Sutras only, it will take you 10 years to attain Wisdom; if you recite Amitabha Buddha's name only, it will take you 10 years to attain Wisdom. But if you read, listen to Sutras and you recite Amitabha Buddha's name together, it will take you 5 years only to attain precious Wisdom. All of you should know, reciting Amitabha Buddha's name is to cultivating and purifying your mind. When you have that kind of mind, Buddhas and Bodhisattvas, the three Jewels will support and enhance your mind, why can't you attain Wisdom? Everyone who don't have Wisdom always do worldly affairs not appropriate with the Way but they don't know they're doing things wrongly themselves, furthermore, they think they do good things, they think they have very much Merits, how can they know they are accumulating karma themselves? Those are truly ignorance.
Commentary of translator Hue Quang: How in the spiritual world, a person can have Merits by merely doing worldly affairs? Accumulating more karma is bad because all karma whether good or bad is causes to be born again in the cycle of rebirths and deaths as preached Shakyamuni Buddha.
Namo Amitabha, here is a Vietnamese Buddhist verse preached by a famous Buddhist monk for cultivations:
Tu là phải thứ tha tất cả,
Lòng dặn lòng cải hóa tự thân,
Học đòi theo bậc Thánh nhân,
Tu hành đắc đạo (được) kim thân (của) Phật đà,
Tu đừng có mê nhà mê cửa,
Mê sắc son tình cảm bên ngoài,
Thì ra chữ học phải phai (phải đúng theo Phật pháp),
Làm sao giữ thí phúc đài Phật thân (giữ gìn phước báu cho Phật thân)?,
Người tu phải tinh thần khiêm tốn,
Ta gieo phước điền là có vốn sẵn rồi,
Thanh trang tư tưởng mà ngồi,
Trì tâm niệm Phật ôi thôi vô vàn,
Dẫu tuổi lớn (đã) muộn màng (rồi cho nên phải) quy (y) Phật,
Cuộc đời này quyết lật sang trang,
Ta Bà cõi khổ còn mang,
(Hãy đánh) thức tâm (để) niệm Phật, muộn màng (vì đã lớn tuổi rồi nên phải) lo tu,
Sớm chiều trì chí (cố gắng) công phu,
Ngày sau sẽ được ngao du (dạo chơi) Tây đài (đài sen cõi Tây phương).
Namo Amitabha, here is another Vietnamese Buddhist verse preached by a famous Vietnamese Buddhist monk:
Tây phương cảnh thơm tho nồn nặc,
Xuống hồng trần chi cho cực tấm thân?,
Sanh tử bệnh già, nổi khổ oán than,
Sầu bi một kiếp chứa chan lạnh lùng,
Nên ta phải đại hùng, đại lực,
Trở về nhà ra sức công phu,
Sớm chiều trì chí lo tu,
Học tâm thiền định hận thù bỏ luôn,
Đời như một vở tuồng cùng cạn,
Ở nơi đời biển cạn sông buồn,
Trở về đóng trọn vai tuồng,
Tây phương Cực Lạc không buồn không vui.
I will translate and explain with my Wisdom later.
Namo Amitabha, here is another Vietnamese Buddhist verse preached by a famous Vietnamese Buddhist monk:
Đạo pháp thì hay dung với hòa,
Xét người cho tột, xét thân ta;
Người sai rõ phận vui lòng thứ,
Ta thứ cho người, người thứ ta;
Người thứ ta thì xót xa đoạn diệt,
Trở về nhà anh kiệt nam nhi,
Lúc nằm, lúc đứng, lúc đi;
Trong lòng có Phật vậy thì mới nên,
Nhớ nhắc ta ở bên cửa tử,
Cuộc trần nầy nam nữ lo tu,
Bỏ đi oán hận tình thù,
Trăm năm một kiếp (có tu hành thì sẽ có) nghìn thu hưởng nhàn,
Ở bên đây (ở cõi Ta bà thì ở) bên bờ sanh tử,
Bên Tây đài (đài sen ở cõi Tây phương) có chữ thiện lành,
Ăn chay, niệm Phật, làm lành;
Ngày sau sẽ được tái sanh Tây đài,
Trần gian là giấc mộng dài,
Tu thì ta mãi tu hoài nghe không?
Trở về nơi bổn lai không (tứ đại và ngũ uẩn của thân giả và tâm giả đều không có thật),
Trì trai, giữ giới, công đồng (có công phu) mới chứng chi (tu chứng).

Namo Amitabha, when a person wants to improve his or her cultivations, he or she must realize the four elements of a physical body (earth, water, wind, fire) are empty, be content with what he or she has, and cultivate diligently.
Namo Amitabha, you guys should know that you have three different life: 01. Work life, your work life are singers. Because you sing songs composed by other musicians, you guys are living your work life like you are playing in a drama, and in that drama, there is another character who is you guy is playing in a smaller drama. Therefore, you guys aren't living truly to your Buddha mind twice. In other words, you guys are living in illusions twice. Most of people have work life, 02. Life at home: You guys are relaxing, doing household chores and living with your family normally. Life at home is like playing in a drama. You guys aren't living truly to your Buddha mind. You guys are living in illusion once. Most of people have life at home, 03. Spiritual life, highest is Buddhism: When you guys practice meditations, practice Pure Land and cultivate then you guys are living truthfully to your Buddha mind. In other words, you guys aren't living in illusions at all. There aren't many people of all people who are living this life.
Namo Amitabha, here is an important advice from a Vietnamese Venerable Thích Thiện Hoa: Cultivating mind is very important. Original Vietnamese version: Tu tâm Là Một vấn đề quan trọng
Người đời hung dữ, vì chẳng biết tu tâm
Gia đình không hạnh phúc, vì chẳng biết tu tâm;
Xóm, làng hay rầy rà kiện cáo vì dân quê chẳng biết tu tâm;
Thế giới chiến tranh, tương tàn tương sát, vì nhân loại chẳng biết tu tâm;
Phật tử tu hành bị thối chuyển, vì chẳng biết tu tâm.
Con người có Tu Tâm, mới trở nên hiền từ,
Gia đình có Tu Tâm, thân tộc mới được hạnh phúc.
Quốc gia có Tu Tâm, nước nhà mới có thạnh trị.
Nhơn loại có Tu Tâm, thế giới mới được hòa bình
Phật tử có Tu Tâm, mới mau thành đạo chứng quả.
(Thích Thiện Hoa)
Translated into English: CULTIVATING MIND IS VERY IMPORTANT
Worldly people are cruel, because they don't know how to cultivate mind;
Family isn't happy, because family members don't know how to cultivate mind;
Village often has problems, because people don't know how to cultivate mind;
The world have wars, kill one another, because human beings don't know how to cultivate mind;
Buddhist cultivate backwardly, because he or she doesn't know how to cultivate mind.
Human cultivate mind, human can be kind.
Family cultivate mind, family can be happy.
Country cultivate mind, country has no domestic violence and foreign war.
Human cultivate mind, the world can have peace.
Buddhist cultivates mind, he or she can attain the Way quickly.
Namo Amitabha, hi guys, here are my last advices for you:
01. You know your body and mind are unreal, and your Dharma body (your Buddha mind) is real. Therefore why don't you do everything or cultivate as much as you can to benefit your Dharma body or your Buddha mind instead of doing things to benefit your unreal mind and body?
02. You know you had three different lives: Work life, home life and spiritual life. You know which life benefit the real you (your Buddha mind or Dharma body) the most, you know which life you can live truly to your Buddha mind the most, what should you do now when life is impermanent?
03. You know the number of human will be born in the three evil paths are as much as the number of soisl on earth and number of human can be born as human and heavenly being are as little as the number of soils in the hand of Shakyamuni Buddha. What should you do to be in the rank of the very lucky humans or even better than them: To have liberation from the cycle of rebirths and deaths? Can your family and relatives help you? No. Can your parents help you? No. Can your bf or gf help you? No. Can your health help you? No. Can your beauty help you? No. Can your properties help you? No. Can your money help you? No and YES. Why no and why Yes? No because you guys are stingy and has no Wisdom, you don't care about your Gem, Dharma body or Buddha mind at all, you accept to be a slave for many worthless desires of your unreal mind and unreal body for the rest of your life!, you don't want to live like a Master for your Buddha mind over your unreal mind and unreal body. YES because you have good roots of previous cultivations, you have Wisdom, you aren't stingy, you accept to pay me money like I said to have me as your Buddhist Master for your Dream.

Because they tell you the absolute Truths of the universe, they can motivate you to practice Pure Land Buddhism and reborn in Amitabha Buddha's Pure Land. When you reborn in Pure Land, you become a BUDDHA. Everything you do in your life is just repetitions again and again in the cycle of rebirths and deaths. Shakyamuni Buddha preached "Tears of any sentient being who is in the cycle of rebirths and deaths are much more than the four big oceans combined." When on the above clouds and looking at what human beings are doing, Buddhas and Bodhisattvas said "What a pity! Human beings are doing worthless things for their life. Anyone who don't practice Pure Land Buddhism to reborn in Pure Land are pity."

Namo Amitabha, hi everyone, here is a very Wise excerpt of Dharma Master Chin Kung's teaching:
Shakyamuni Buddha preached, if you cannot escape the cycle of rebirths and deaths, then the time you will stay in the three evil paths (the three malicious paths) is unimagined long, the time you stay in the three upper paths (human being realm, Asura realm, heaven being realm) is short, especially in human being realm.
Therefore the cycle of rebirths and deaths and the three evil paths are your hometown (hometown is where you're born), the three upper paths are just places for your temporary travels. This time we travel to human being realm, in other words we are born on earth, is not bad; we can meet Buddha-Dharma and Sangha's teachings. Therefore you should know Dharma very well and with sincerity, you should compare your current lifestyles with Buddha's teachings to see which lifestyles are good, beneficial, wholesome, virtuous and which lifestyle are bad, unbeneficial, unwholesome, evil. With determinations, we should abandon greed, hatred, ignorance; abandon fame, worldly benefits; five worldly desires (beauties of women, excessive money and talent, fame, extra eating and extra sleep) and the five sense objects (form, sound, smell, taste, touch, dharmas). The five worldly desires which are beauties of women, excessive money and talent, fame, extra eating and extra sleep must be abandoned. Shakiamuni Buddha preached "The five worldly desires are roots to be born in hell realms." Why do we say hell realm is our hometown? You should think, is there anyone who doesn't greed for the five worldly desires? When you're greedy for the five worldly desires, when you want to own, you're born in hell realms. Buddha advised us very much, that the ten virtuous deeds (the ten good deeds, the ten wholesome deeds) are our good friends, the ten evil deeds (the ten bad deeds, the ten unwholesome deeds) are our enemies. Think again, we make friends with the ten evil deeds very warm and very friendly and we treat the ten virtuous deeds very cold without any interests. We have illusions and delusions in our thoughts which our thoughts are our fate, destiny or ourselves.
World famous Dharma Master Chin Kung.
