A formal request for Buddhist teachings for the Public Talk at Phillips Theological Seminary. A Letter from the Bodhicharya Oklahoma Sangha To our Lama, The Venerable Ringu Tulku Rinpoche:
For decades now, our youth dies on the streets of Chicago. From the recent Boston Marathon emerges a human will to bomb, to kill and to maim bodies. Destroy good tradition and joy. Recently, someone young with extreme unease of a mind and unregulated results of a gun lobby fueled by fear, kills children and those who love them; Rinpoche, please come to Tulsa now and show us with the luminous Nature of your mind. Show us how a single understanding that everything we experience is the radiance of the mind’s own nature, can bring us some Wisdom. We feel in our gut we are beings of potentially great power for good. Please teach us to stay open with compassion in the midst of despair. Where the distinction between even Wisdom and confusion is clouded.Reinforce for us the confidence that our Buddha Nature is the source of our giving peace to others, so we can absorb their pain and suffering without damage to ourselves. Strengthen our practice of Tonglen.
Please teach us to see the luminous, cognizant potential of our own true nature. Urge us again with this visit, to see reality as it is and not how we want it to be, so we can progress along this path and remain rock solid in our commitment to bodhichitta because we can and want to realize as the buddhas discovered, that without enlightening one’s being through the comittment to remain linked to others, and to enlightened one’s being to help others, the repetition of karmic tragedy and the suffering of cause and effect is inevitable. It will happen again. We are asking you, Please share with us the Wisdom nature of your trained compassionate mind. Be with us this short time so we can see the Peace that results from training our mind with the Path.
Gratefully, the Bodhicharya Oklahoma Sangha.
