If there are obstacles, not 'the infinite

If you can count, not the stars

If you tremble or shake, and not 'a mountain

If increases or decreases, is not 'an ocean

If it passes over the bridges, not 'a river

If you can 'grasp, and not' the rainbow

Here are the parables of the six external perceptions

Peace of heart, a quiet mind, are rooted in simpathy and compassion.

In this we find an higher level of sensibility and sentiment.

What makes Tibet special?

E-mail Print PDF

I defend the Tibetan cause because I wish to serve humanity.  In the 19th century, we were still a peace-loving nation endowed with a unique culture.  If we were rather backwards in material terms, spiritually speaking we were quite prosperous.  We are Buddhists, and the form of Buddhism that we practice is one of the most complete.  Furthermore, we have kept it really alive over the centuries.  It is not only as a Tibetan that I consider it vital to ensure the survival of this culture and of this nation; it is simply as a human being who hopes they can make a contribution to the world as a whole.

Colors and Sound

E-mail Print PDF

You know about the effect of human emanations upon plants. You also know about the effect of color. Now it is necessary to recall the influence of sound. The similarity of these effects is significant. If, for the expansion of the potencies of a plant, an open, bright-sounding heart is necessary, then, in the effect of sound, consonance and all the dominant combinations are necessary. A dissonance cannot strengthen the current of energy.  Dissonances, as an antithesis, may be useful in their effect upon people for strengthening the rhythm of consciousness; but with plants, where consciousness is at its minimum,dissonances seems to be only a retarding condition.

With minerals, dissonances may even be a cause of disintegration. Verily a rose is a symbol of consonance, and the dominant of the radiation of the rose is linked with the glow of the heart.  Not a few experiments have been made with sound on plants, but the ancients believed that the finest flowers grew by the temples where there were numerous harmonies of voice and music.
