Published on Mar 26, 2012


Dear
friends,

Buddha Dhamma Sagararanna had their new temple opening ceremony at Port
Dickson last Sunday. Many sangha members from around the world attended
the ceremony… including nuns from Taiwan, nuns of Myanmmar and local
Dharma practitioners. How beautiful! I was invited to attend the
opening, due to hectic schedule I was not able to attend, but Kechara’s
Liaison Irene Lim attended and presented gifts on my behalf.

The sangha members were led by Venerable Chang Ern from Buddha Dhamma
Sagararanna Buddhist Association. Venerable Chang Ern also serves as the
Chief of Malaysia Buddhist Association (MBA), Negeri Sembilan branch.

Kechara’s liaisons Irene was contacted by Venerable Chang Ern, and Irene
immediately offered to host the group of sangha members for dinner at
Kechara Oasis (KO), Jaya One. This was a Dana offering on behalf of
Kechara at our own Vegetarian Restaurant!

At KO, Irene gave a warm welcome to this group of sangha members with an
opening speech thanking them for giving her the opportunity to offer
Dana. Pastor Ngeow and Liaison Paul Yap were also there to represent
Kechara House. The group was offered delicious, healthy and vegetarian
food… I was told that they liked the food offered to them very much!

After dinner, Irene and the group of sangha members went to the Kechara
House gompa for a visit. The sangha members and other lay Dharma
practitioners were then given a tour of our Kechara Gallery.

During this time, Ven Chang Ern and the group of nuns from Taiwan left
to another Dharma center to escort Venerable Chuan Dao (4th abbot of
Miao Xin Si, Taiwan) and Venerable Zong Hong (abbot of Jin Gang Chan Si
in OUG, Kuala Lumpur) to our center. Venerable Zong Hong is the Head of
MBA’s Youth Section.

I only got to know of the visit a few hours before they arrived at KO!
As it’s very meritorious to make offerings to sangha members, I decided
to go to Kechara House to meet the group and present a few offerings to
them. So while the monks and nuns were having dinner, I was with Paris
and my Private Office arranging offerings for these holy monks and nuns.

When I arrived, I was surprised to see so many of our Kechara members
upstairs at the main prayer hall! They only got to know about the last
minute visit 30 minutes before I arrived, so I did not expect it at
all… I was happy to see all of them. After I presented the offerings
to the sangha members and their assistants, they had to leave because it
was quite late already. I did not want to keep them up for too long,
especially the older sangha members who had very kindly changed their
schedule to visit KH…

I felt inspired to give a short Dharma talk to our Kechara members on
why we make offerings to the sangha. I don’t like my students to do
things blindly without understanding why they are doing it. I feel with
knowledge, Dharma activity and study and practice becomes more
meaningful.

I explained that our karma with each other is relational. This means the
weight of our karma depends on the person’s relationship with us. For
example, the karma of hurting our family and friends is heavier than the
karma of hurting total strangers who we have never met before. Likewise
the karma of hurting our parents is much heavier than the karma of
hurting our brothers and sisters. The karma of hurting our mother is
also heavier than the karma of hurting our brother, because she carried
us in her womb for 9 months. Now that is at an ordinary level. Then our
relational karma with strangers, friends, parents, spouse and sangha are
explained in brief here in this talk.

Actually I have spoken about this many times before but I wanted to
share it with Kecharians again because I feel it is very very important
that we make offerings to the Sangha to support their dharma practice
and generate merits for our KWPC or Kechara World Peace Centre which is
our retreat land in the mountains and our own attainments. I hope you
will listen to this talk and really put it into your mind. It will
greatly benefit your understanding of why supporting the sangha is
important.

Maha-parinibbana Sutta — Last Days of the Buddha
HAPPY LOTUS
Published on Apr 19, 2014
The Great Discourse on the Total Unbinding
This wide-ranging sutta, the longest one in the Pali canon, describes
the events leading up to, during, and immediately following the death
and final release (parinibbana) of the Buddha. This colorful narrative
contains a wealth of Dhamma teachings, including the Buddha’s final
instructions that defined how Buddhism would be lived and practiced long
after the Buddha’s death — even to this day. But this sutta also
depicts, in simple language, the poignant human drama that unfolds among
the Buddha’s many devoted followers around the time of the death of
their beloved teacher.

Pali (Pāli) is a Prakrit language
worldbuddhistradio
Published on Jan 9, 2016
Pali (Pāli) is a Prakrit language native to the Indian subcontinent. It
is widely studied because it is the language of many of the earliest
extant literature of Buddhism as collected in the Pāli Canon or Tipiṭaka
and is the sacred language of Theravada Buddhism.

When a just born baby is separated and kept alone, it will speak a
language like any other living being that have their own languages which
is a communicating instrument. That human language is Magadhi a prakrit
and Pali (Pāli) is a Prakrit language. All other languages are off
shoot of Magadhi and hence all languages are noble and classical.

Dhammapada

Published on Jul 8, 2015


The
Dhammapada is a collection of sayings of the Buddha in verse form and
one of the most widely read and best known Buddhist scriptures. The
original version of the Dhammapada is in the Khuddaka Nikaya, a division
of the Pali Canon of Theravada Buddhism.

The Buddhist scholar and commentator Buddhaghosa explains that each
saying recorded in the collection was made on a different occasion in
response to a unique situation that had arisen in the life of the Buddha
and his monastic community. His commentary, the Dhammapada Atthakatha,
presents the details of these events and is a rich source of legend for
the life and times of the Buddha.

About the Course

Until
recently, the wisdom of the world’s many religions existed in separate
silos blocked from other traditions by barriers of language, distance,
and slow communications. Now, more than at any time in history, this
collective wisdom is easily available to anyone with an internet
connection. But without a guide to this enormous wealth of information
and practice, we can quickly lose our way. 

In this course,
comparative religionist Kenneth Rose will be your guide in learning
about and practicing the religious and spiritual wisdom that  can change
your life and the life of your community. Taking his start from the
spiritual principles and practices outlined by noted investor  and
spiritual teacher Sir John Templeton in his book Wisdom from World
Religions: Pathways Toward Heaven on Earth, Kenneth Rose will trace
these teachings to their sources in the world’s major religions and show
you how you can put them into practice.

What You’ll Learn

This course provides clear and inspiring answers to many of life’s big questions:

Does life have an ultimate meaning?
Is science the ultimate guide to the deepest truth of life?
Does God, or a divine reality, exist?
What practices can bring God, or a divine reality, into your own experience?
Is death the end of life?
Course Learning Objectives

After taking this course, participants should be able to:

Identify the basic teachings of the world’s major active religious traditions.
Distinguish the different religions from each other.
Compare these religions in search of commonalties and differences.
Evaluate Sir John’s contributions to the study of spirituality.
Apply some of the spiritual practices suggested by Sir John Templeton
Assess claims about spiritual realities made by the various religions.

About the Course

Until
recently, the wisdom of the world’s many religions existed in separate
silos blocked from other traditions by barriers of language, distance,
and slow communications. Now, more than at any time in history, this
collective wisdom is easily available to anyone with an internet
connection. But without a guide to this enormous wealth of information
and practice, we can quickly lose our way. 

In this course,
comparative religionist Kenneth Rose will be your guide in learning
about and practicing the religious and spiritual wisdom that can change
your life and the life of your community. Taking his start from the
spiritual principles and practices outlined by noted investor  and
spiritual teacher Sir John Templeton in his book Wisdom from World
Religions: Pathways Toward Heaven on Earth, Kenneth Rose will trace
these teachings to their sources in the world’s major religions and show
you how you can put them into practice.

What You’ll Learn

This course provides clear and inspiring answers to many of life’s big questions:

Does life have an ultimate meaning?
Is science the ultimate guide to the deepest truth of life?
Does God, or a divine reality, exist?
What practices can bring God, or a divine reality, into your own experience?
Is death the end of life?
Course Learning Objectives

After taking this course, participants should be able to:

Identify the basic teachings of the world’s major active religious traditions.
Distinguish the different religions from each other.
Compare these religions in search of commonalties and differences.
Evaluate Sir John’s contributions to the study of spirituality.
Apply some of the spiritual practices suggested by Sir John Templeton
Assess claims about spiritual realities made by the various religions.

Readings from Sir John Templeton’s Wisdom from World Religions

“The
rich variety of world religions creates a tapestry of amazing beauty—a
testimony to the essential spiritual nature of our human visit on earth.
And yet, within this amazing and sometimes fascinating diversity can be
found an equally amazing unity” (WWR 56).
“The more we know about
the universe and our place in it, the more we realize how little we
know. So, in our ongoing search, we often look to the spiritual
teachings of the world religions to provide assistance in helping us
understand more of who and what we are and why we are here.” (WWR 5)
“Wisdom
from World Religions: Pathways toward Heaven on Earth is designed to
offer people of all ages and all nations an opportunity to learn a
little more about the spiritual laws, principles, and teachings of a
variety of great spiritual practices. I hope that in this book we can
offer a Scripture verse or story or parable or discipline or quote that
may show you the world in a way more helpful than you have seen it
before. The materials presented in this book can provide an opportunity
for learning and “growing in wisdom.” There are clear scriptural and
philosophical bases for advocating the need for an inquiring and open
mind. . . . Can the value in learning to see a different world lie not
in replacing the one you have, but in providing a basis for an
opportunity to see from a different, or larger, perspective? Can the
timeless universal principles of life that transcend modern times or
particular cultures help people in all parts of the world live happier
and more useful lives?” (WWR xxi).
“The publishing of this book is
accomplished with reverence and appreciation for the world religions
that purify a person’s mind and heart, elevate his emotions, and offer
guidance for a spiritual way of life. Much of the material contained
herein has been made possible by the sincere light of the prophets,
teachers, and traditions of the world’s great religions that, through
the ages, have expressed sacred insights and wisdom to humanity” (WWR
xxv).

“Who am I? Why am I here on planet Earth? What does the future
hold? How can I set out on my own into a world that sometimes seems
filled with conflict and strife? How can I get along better with the
people in my life? How do I cope with day-to-day pressures? How can I be
successful in my work? How do I find peace in the midst of turmoil? How
can my life be useful and happy?” (WWR 3).

About the Course

Until
recently, the wisdom of the world’s many religions existed in separate
silos blocked from other traditions by barriers of language, distance,
and slow communications. Now, more than at any time in history, this
collective wisdom is easily available to anyone with an internet
connection. But without a guide to this enormous wealth of information
and practice, we can quickly lose our way. 

In this course,
comparative religionist Kenneth Rose will be your guide in learning
about and practicing the religious and spiritual wisdom that can change
your life and the life of your community. Taking his start from the
spiritual principles and practices outlined by noted investor  and
spiritual teacher Sir John Templeton in his book Wisdom from World
Religions: Pathways Toward Heaven on Earth, Kenneth Rose will trace
these teachings to their sources in the world’s major religions and show
you how you can put them into practice.

What You’ll Learn

This course provides clear and inspiring answers to many of life’s big questions:

Does life have an ultimate meaning?
Is science the ultimate guide to the deepest truth of life?
Does God, or a divine reality, exist?
What practices can bring God, or a divine reality, into your own experience?
Is death the end of life?
Course Learning Objectives

After taking this course, participants should be able to:

Identify the basic teachings of the world’s major active religious traditions.
Distinguish the different religions from each other.
Compare these religions in search of commonalties and differences.
Evaluate Sir John’s contributions to the study of spirituality.
Apply some of the spiritual practices suggested by Sir John Templeton
Assess claims about spiritual realities made by the various religions.

Readings from Sir John Templeton’s Wisdom from World Religions

“The
rich variety of world religions creates a tapestry of amazing beauty—a
testimony to the essential spiritual nature of our human visit on earth.
And yet, within this amazing and sometimes fascinating diversity can be
found an equally amazing unity” (WWR 56).
“The more we know about
the universe and our place in it, the more we realize how little we
know. So, in our ongoing search, we often look to the spiritual
teachings of the world religions to provide assistance in helping us
understand more of who and what we are and why we are here.” (WWR 5)
“Wisdom
from World Religions: Pathways toward Heaven on Earth is designed to
offer people of all ages and all nations an opportunity to learn a
little more about the spiritual laws, principles, and teachings of a
variety of great spiritual practices. I hope that in this book we can
offer a Scripture verse or story or parable or discipline or quote that
may show you the world in a way more helpful than you have seen it
before. The materials presented in this book can provide an opportunity
for learning and “growing in wisdom.” There are clear scriptural and
philosophical bases for advocating the need for an inquiring and open
mind. . . . Can the value in learning to see a different world lie not
in replacing the one you have, but in providing a basis for an
opportunity to see from a different, or larger, perspective? Can the
timeless universal principles of life that transcend modern times or
particular cultures help people in all parts of the world live happier
and more useful lives?” (WWR xxi).
“The publishing of this book is
accomplished with reverence and appreciation for the world religions
that purify a person’s mind and heart, elevate his emotions, and offer
guidance for a spiritual way of life. Much of the material contained
herein has been made possible by the sincere light of the prophets,
teachers, and traditions of the world’s great religions that, through
the ages, have expressed sacred insights and wisdom to humanity” (WWR
xxv).
“Who am I? Why am I here on planet Earth? What does the future
hold? How can I set out on my own into a world that sometimes seems
filled with conflict and strife? How can I get along better with the
people in my life? How do I cope with day-to-day pressures? How can I be
successful in my work? How do I find peace in the midst of turmoil? How
can my life be useful and happy?” (WWR 3).

Video 1: Sir John Templeton’s Wisdom from World Religions

Theme: The Divinity of the World: “God-life moving through all”

A Spiritual Law from Sir John Templeton

“Regardless
of whatever situation that may be present, the factor of life —
god-life moving through all — is cause for thanksgiving and rejoicing”
(WWR 16).

Readings and Selections

Suggested Readings in Wisdom from World Religions:

W20, L5, 176-177

W33, L 2, 279-280

Relevant selections from Wisdom from World Religions

“Regardless
of whatever situation that may be present, the factor of life —
god-life moving through all — is cause for thanksgiving and rejoicing”
(WWR 16).
 “Universal intelligence — life energy or divinity — is not
static. Life itself reminds us that creativity is ever active,
ever-flowing. When we allow the universal energy to flow through us, are
we projecting ourselves into the ever-moving, harmonious wholeness of
spirit? It moves through us. It expresses itself through our minds and
our actions. The result is often a feeling of connection with all of
life. As we let the power of divine love flow through us, the path of
the unfolding soul becomes a joyous one” (WWR 271).
“Life is often
considered one of the greatest adventures imaginable. Perhaps in a
number of different ways, each of us can sense a deep mystery in being
alive. When an infant is born or when the death of a loved one brushes
close to us, the mystery of life becomes more personal and tangible. We
can behold the glory of divinity in a radiant sunset, in the sweet
warmth of spring rain, and in the flowering seasons of our days. We can
behold the glory of divinity in our daily lives” (WWR 279).
“You may have heard the expression that mankind came into the world to bring forth his God-likeness” (WWR 4).
“Is there a brightness to living that draws us onward in pursuit of increased usefulness? (WWR 280).
“. . . unlimited love . . . helps us recognize the sacred presence of spirit in everyone and everything” (WWR 307).
Video 1 Learning Objectives (QM 2.1-5)

To outline the unitive, pluralist spiritual views of Sir John Templeton
To
describe Templeton’s background religious and spiritual influences
(Unity, journeys in Asia, Presbyterianism, Princeton Theological School,
other religions)
To compare these views with the teachings in the world’s religions about the divine character of life and of conscious beings.
Discussion Questions

Seeker

The phrase “god-life” seems to have been coined by John Templeton. How does that resonate with you?
How would you characterize Templeton’s religious views?
Proficient

Can you name some of the sources of Templeton’s distinctive spiritual views?
Does
Templeton’s use of words in this book like “creativity,” “god-life,”
“divinity,” “life energy,” and “universal intelligence” affect your
views of God or the ultimate reality as you understand it?
Adept

If life is an adventure, what is the goal?
If there is “a brightness to living” as Templeton suggests, how would you go about tapping into it?

Video 2 Learning objectives (QM 2.1-5)

To evaluate claims such as “I’m spiritual, not religious.”

To identify what religious and spiritual movements share and what is unique to each religious and spiritual movement.
Discussion Questions

Seekers

Do you find it helpful to distinguish between being spiritual and being religious?
Can a person be just religious or just spiritual?
Proficients

Can you name activates that are more religious than spiritual and vice versa?
How many distinctive spiritual practices can you name?
Adepts

Can you categorize spiritual practices into at least two distinctive and nonoverlapping categories?
Does
the fact that neuroscientists can measure how meditation affects the
brain mean that spirituality is just a product of the brain?
