A Request to All My Friends





Recent events in the Kamtsang Kagyu may cause a lot of discussion both inside the lineage and out, and I am slightly worried about the possibility of people trading barbed words over it. In particular, the lineages with the same dharma and gurus, the same crown and colors must give up making threats or criticizing each other. Do not look only at what appears right in front of you; carefully consider all the different sides and angles of the situation. Be spacious, patient, and forgiving so as not to lose control of yourself. Please be sympathetic and understanding so as not to disturb anyone else’s mind.

Whatever happens to you or someone else,
Do not dispute, exaggerate, or speak badly.
Instead, look carefully at every side,
Don’t search for others’ faults; give up your own.

- By the 17th Gyalwang Karmapa Ogyen Trinley Dorje.

<針對昨日傳承內部事件之呼籲>

致我所有的朋友們:

由於昨日岡倉噶舉內部發生之事件,已經在內、外傳承中,形成各種話題,尤其可能因而產生許多紛爭,甚至彼此惡言相向,此乃我所擔憂之況。特別是同法同師、同帽同色的傳承內,應杜絕相互謾罵和毀謗的言行。

我們應該避免只短視眼前的事件,而是要謹慎地從各方面去深思。無論如何,待人處事都不要失去寬大與包容的原則,堅持愛護與體恤他人的立場,而不要擾亂他人的心。

自他若生是非時,
不語謗蔑等惡言。
瞻前顧後慎觀察,
持守原則我祈請。

    1. This monk has not got married and remains being a monk. The one who married us the other one who claims to be Karmapa also.

  3. Um, this Karmapa didn't get married. You're thinking of Thaye Dorje, the other person who states he is Karmapa.

  4. The problem is't so much the marriage or "the other" side in general..the problem is us. Sharmapa found an ordinary being, but Tai Situpa found a gyalpo. Orgyen Thinley is the biggest danger to the Karma Kagyu--and I am from "your side!" The cars, the hotels--but, especially the false recognitions. This is no time to recognize tulkus. You know that. Kalu Rinpoche? Jamgon Kongtrul ? So we are simply left with the Great You?? You know you are simply a Tsurphu spirit--a temple guardian. The Karmapa was sitting next to you. You got jealous. Karmapa was sitting on Jamgon Kongtrul's throne. How many tulkus lamas and nuns will you rid yourself of--"they are ok as long as they are not better than me. As long as they are my servants." Everything we thought of Sharmapa you have become that and so much worse. The lineage of Shugden!!

  5. It seems as if there are Monks and Laypeople that are walking the Three Evil Paths of Self and carry the Three Poisons. One should not have explain the Three Evil Paths of Self and the Three Poisons to Monks. Monks that walk those Paths and carry those Poisons are Mara Monks. If there is fighting over Lineages and Thrones then since both are Impermanence, maybe All Lineages and Thrones should be removed. How can you fight (Greed, Anger) over what is no longer there?

  6. "Don’t search for others’ faults; give up your own."

    This verse sums up the entire Dharma. All practitioners should take this advice, especially those who claim to be students of Karmapa Orgyen Trinley Dorje.
