May Kyabje Lama Zopa Rinpoche live long!

I will just write a quick one here because lately he has been manifesting illness in Singapore's Amitabha Buddhist Centre. Some initiations and teachings had been cancelled.

May Kyabje Lama Zopa Rinpoche live long!

I still need you! I am sure others still need you! So, please...please... live long!

Thank goodness, it was made known that the initiations will be given today and tomorrow! Rinpoche is better now. LDC had been asking people to accumulate Tara mantra and ABC advises students to recite the Heart Sutra 100 times.

Praise to Lord Je Tsongkapa !!

Over the last one week I have successfully defended Je Tsongkapa's view on emptiness as not nihilistic in nature. There were people accusing him of nihilism and using Gorampa's Freedom from Extremes work to cricise Tsongkapa. And they also mentioned the 8th Karmapa. However, in the end, they admitted that Je Tsongkapa is a saint and scholar and that he is not nihilitic morally. To me that is good enough as admitting that he was not wrong in his views. It is just interpreted as nihilistic by other analyst who may nto be a saint.

Anyway, I am not trying to say Gorampa is not a saint but there were no account of his practices and I was certainly not as impressed with his biography as I am with Je Tsongkapa. I am extremely glad that I was able to uphold the Ganden tradition high and not letting down my Victorious One!

My humble 3-times prostrations to My Lord!!!
