Best Wishes for the Chinese New Year of the Rooster!
How Should One Face “Happiness and Sufferings”!
The Chinese New Year of the Rooster is just around the corner. Some people say that the past year went by very quickly, while some others say that it was full of hardships. As a Dharma practitioner, one should only ask how is the progress of one’s own Dharma practice? Whether it has been done well or not, fast or slow? While most ordinary people would feel and reflect upon their own past on a scale of happiness and pain, as Dharma practitioners, especially for those who have already reached a certain level of spiritual realization, we should focus our minds to review on our own Dharma practices.
When Dharma practitioners experience happiness, they would feel joyful. Yet, this kind of feeling should be used to further enhance one’s own practice, and should not be for one’s own indulgence. Furthermore, they should dedicate this feeling of happiness to all our motherly sentient beings. They should also be most grateful for the blessings of the Gurus, the Buddhas, Bodhisattvas and Dharma protectors. It is only by so doing will one’s “mind-training” practice be making real progress, and then one will be spiritually uplifted and to become even more happy.
When Dharma practitioners experience sufferings, they would feel the pain. Yet, this kind of feeling should also be used to advance one’s own practice, and should not be the reason for one to wallow in self-degradation. Neither should this be the reason for one to sink into self-pitying, nor to curse those whom one think might be against oneself, all of which might only lead to having one’s spiritual downfall. Furthermore, they should not be doubtful as to whether they were blessed by the Gurus, the Buddhas, Bodhisattvas and Dharma protectors or not. More important is that Dharma practitioners should not become superstitious, due to this feeling, in seeking for the advice of Feng Shui, and so on. Instead, they should avoid to be led by the nose due to superstitions.
As Dharma practitioners, it is very clear that if one cannot transform sufferings into positive energy, then all of one’s actions will only add in more negative karmas to oneself. As a result, one will only continue to move downwards spiritually in one’s future lifetimes, and this is the “cause and effect”. Understanding the origins of the “causes and conditions” will lead one to make wiser life choices, which will in turn help one to reap good “fruitions”. In this way, in knowing how to face “Happiness and Sufferings” is also part of one’s own Dharma practice.
For this coming new year, we sincerely wish that all of you will be so full of wisdom of improving oneself in becoming a very progressive Dharma practitioner. Good health, full of love and joy, and with great progress on the Bodhi Path (Road to Enlightenment)!

His Holiness Kyabje Chadral Sangye Dorje Rinpoche’s Spiritual Advice (in Chinese pdf 夏札法王對佛法修行人的忠告)
極大的遺憾 與 深切的哀悼
依怙主 夏札法王戚操生紀多傑仁波切，即移喜泰賢及啤嗎哈尊金剛上師之根本上師，為藏傳佛教中被公認為修行成就極高的大聖者。其修行成就一早已被藏傳佛教的始祖蓮花生大士及一些大聖者所授記(即預言) ，是百歲的大成就者。預言中更說明夏札法王的弟子中，也有很多成就者的出現。
夏札法王為當今罕見的百歲大成就者，剛於2015年12月30日進入「大槃涅槃」，世壽105歲。由於進入「大槃涅槃」會一如當日釋迦牟尼佛進入「大槃涅槃」般，引發能量的變化，覆蓋此世間的磁場，令其內之一切眾生所作之任何「善或惡」的行為業力，增大一千萬倍。因此敦珠佛學會的移喜泰賢及啤嗎哈尊金剛上師，特別於此期間，率眾弟子舉行七七四十九日的「祈請 夏札法王恆常降下殊勝甘露法雨賜予加持之大法會」。誠心祈禱依怙主 夏札法王(戚操生紀多傑仁波切)繼續加持此娑婆世界，大轉無上法輪，利益無盡蒼生，以贖眾弟子與眾生福薄之罪障。同時令所有參予法會修持的弟子可以獲得一千萬倍的修持功德，淨除多生多世的業障，以儲備脫離輪迴束縛及成佛的足夠福德智慧資糧。
Announcement With Our Greatest Sorrow
With our greatest grief and deepest regret,
The Dudjom Buddhist Association (International) regrettably announced the sad news of His Holiness Kyabje Chadral Sangye Dorje Rinpoche’s Entering into Maha-Parinirvana on 30th December, 2015, at the age of 105 years old, due to the lack of merits and unwholesome karmas of all sentient beings in general.
Since His Holiness Kyabje Chadral Sangye Dorje Rinpoche was the Spiritual Leader and Mentor of the Dudjom Buddhist Association (International), as well as the Most Beloved Crowning Jewel and Wish-Fulfilling Gem of both our Vajra Masters Yeshe Thaye & Pema Lhadren, our two Vajra Masters have thus led all the disciples and Sangha members of the Dudjom Buddhist Association (International) in offering our utmost sincere prayers and pujas for 49 days, praying for His Holiness Kyabje Chadral Sangye Dorje Rinpoche’s Continuous Bestowal of Nectar Rain of Blessings to this universe, by upholding the Victory Banner and turning the Wheel of the Holy Dharma for the benefits of all our motherly sentient beings, as limitless as the sky!
During these 49 days, all the disciples and Sangha members of the Dudjom Buddhist Association (International), as well as all those Dharma practitioners who would participate should pray whole-heartedly with fervent regard and strong faith to our Most Beloved Crowning Jewel and Wish-Fulfilling Gem for His Holiness’ continuous blessings of this universe, hopefully, to help alleviate the lack of merits and unwholesome karmas of all sentient beings in general. As for these 49 days, the practices during all Sundays will be open to the general public for their participations with the following dates:
Dates : 10th、17th、24th and 31st of Jan. and 7th、14th and 21st of Feb. 2016 respectively (Sundays).
Time : 3:00 P.M.
Place : Dudjom Buddhist Association (International) at 4/F, Federal Centre, 77 Sheung On Street, Chai Wan, Hong Kong.
This is an extremely sad announcement from the Dudjom Buddhist Association (International) to all Dharma friends, and Dharma brothers and sisters all over the world.
Solemn Declaration on the Misappropriation of the Name, Logo, Name Plaque and Products of the “Dudjom Buddhist Association (International)” in Hong Kong
The “Dudjom Buddhist Association (International)” in Hong Kong has recently discovered that: there are some greedy and crooked persons, who act in the name of the Holy Dharma and only know how to use drums and bells for the “empowerment” ceremonies in pretending to spread the Holy Dharma, but do not know how to explain the genuine Buddhist Holy Dharma in great depths. Out of their great jealousy in trying to prevent the “Dudjom Buddhist Association (International)” in Hong Kong to disseminate the genuine Buddhist Holy Dharma, they have thus misappropriated the name of the “Dudjom Buddhist Association (International)” in Hong Kong by using the photo of our name plaque to put on their online store at the Taobao website in order to promote their own businesses at extremely unreasonable prices, and thus intend to defame us and to undermine the good reputation of the “Dudjom Buddhist Association (International)” in Hong Kong. Please refer to the photo enclosed here.
Furthermore, these despicable crooked persons have further misappropriated both the design and the products of a Buddhist pendant (“a protection emblem of the Goddess Sitatapatra” made by our Association to help protect the Buddhist believers by wearing it) of the “Dudjom Buddhist Association (International)” in Hong Kong, and has falsely claimed that it contains the ingredient of “Sky Iron” (meteoric iron, Tib. Thokcha, or in Wylie: gnam lcags) with the power of blessing, such that they could greatly mark up the price of this pendant from the original cost of only Hk$100 to Rmb$580 in order to earn a great profit. On top of that, they have again misappropriated and tampered with the contents of the journal “Light of Lotus”, published by the “Dudjom Buddhist Association (International)” in Hong Kong, in becoming their promotional description in order to make profits. Please refer to the two photos enclosed here.
The negative nature of these hellish greedy crooked persons not only want to earn money, but they would seriously want to defame and destroy the good reputation of the “Dudjom Buddhist Association (International)” in Hong Kong in order to prevent our Association from forcefully and directly lash out their indiscriminate acts in holding “empowerment” ceremonies so as to make profits and to cheat on the Buddhist believers.
Under the disguise in benefiting and blessing others, in the name of the Buddhist Holy Dharma, these greedy crooked persons have continually hurt the Buddhist believers by poisoning their minds in becoming more and more superstitious and greedy. And by making connections with these crooked persons, many Buddhist believers have unknowingly fallen prey to their vicious and negative magnetic fields. More importantly, by participating in these indiscriminate “empowerment” ceremonies, many Buddhist believers will most unfortunately and eventually be dragged down to be reborn into the three lower realms.
In order to prevent these greedy crooked persons from continually and massively held indiscriminate “empowerment” ceremonies to cheat on the Buddhist believers, the “Dudjom Buddhist Association (International)” in Hong Kong want to heartily advise all Buddhist believers not to fall into the traps of these fraudsters. In order to further pursue on the liabilities caused by these crooked persons for the recent event, the “Dudjom Buddhist Association (International)” in Hong Kong will take legal actions as necessary.
