The River

The following is from a series of tweets by Jetsunma Ahkon Lhamo:

I went to the river. Once again dry, but for the tears in my eyes there was none for me to drink. I need to drink.

When water runs dry… We wait, the fish wait, the animals wait all of us wait. […]

The Power of Speech

From a series of tweets by Jetsunma Ahkon Lhamo:

What is “Right Speech” in Buddha Dharma? Mostly as with the Eight Fold Path, we must do no harm. To understand right speech one must first understand what non virtuous speech is. That is where one speaks in a way as to be […]

Our Guide in Difficult Times

From a series of tweets by Jetsunma Ahkon Lhamo:

Ngundro, or preliminary practice consists of several parts:

Refuge, or entering the gate of protection of the “three precious ones” – the Buddha, Dharma and Sangha. Bodhicitta, the practice of the six perfections and the generation of the aspiration to realize Enlightenment. The offering of […]

Experience the “Lotus” of Dharma

From a series of tweets by Jetsunma Ahkon Lhamo:

The thing about Dharma is how expansive it can be; and is. So many different levels, almost like a wedding cake. To trivialize one in favor of another only indicates one’s propensity toward grasping and clinging. Ego must identify itself by its “containers” of concepts […]

The Buddha is the Master who reveals the true Refuge, and the Sangha is like a true friend on the path to Enlightenment. The actual refuge is the Dharma, because it is the Dharma that will free us and pacify suffering. The absence of or freedom from delusion is cessation. If we do not […]

Where There Is Love

From a series of tweets from Jetsunma Ahkon Lhamo, December 2009

I’ve recently had the great joy of seeing Dharma students return after time away. I rejoice and welcome you home with open arms and heart!

No bridge is burned, no river damned, no journey wasted, no song unsung where there is LOVE.

No […]

The Four Thoughts

From a series of tweets by @jalpalyul on December 2, 2010

Homage to the Buddhas and Bodhisattvas! Gathering all virtue and merit from the three times, this I offer in a beautifully arranged Mandala; a splendid array of jewels, nectar, medicines, and song. Please allow me to speak in such a way as to […]

Lead Your Mind to A Pristine Point

From a series of tweets by Jetsunma Ahkon Lhamo (@jalpalyul)

Our minds have been under the influence of delusion since the beginning of time. The function of concentration is to gain control of our minds. Having gained control of the mind we can then steer it in a virtuous direction. Without mind training this […]

Buddha in the Palm of Your Hand

From a series of tweets on October 20, 2010 by Jetsunma Ahkon Lhamo

A few precious words taught by Kyabje His Holiness Penor Rinpoche.

The great master Buddha gave three main sermons to lead sentient beings onto the Path of Liberation from the suffering of samsara. Because beings have different levels of mind and […]

What Is Real?

From a series of tweets by Jetsunma Ahkon Lhamo

In science we have learned that objects, indeed, people are mostly space. We have atoms and molecules, and between them is empty space. So it is the case as Buddhism states. The primordial ground of being is the self-originating empty luminous state – space.
