In "Neural Correlates of Admiration and Compassion,", Antonio Damasio and Mary Helen Immordino-Yang argue that the human brain evolved to very quickly recognize and empathize with physical pain and fear in others, but is much slower to recognize and empathize with emotional pain, or to acknowledge and celebrate virtue or skill. What this means is that, in a media environment where our social encounters happen very quickly, we may not be giving our brains a chance to generate appropriate compassion or admiration. This is especially problematic with regards to compassion, as we may find ourselves building insufficient bonds of empathy, critical to communities undergoing stress (and we’re seeing a lot of stressed-out communities right now!).

Prayer

«Prayer involves conscious intent. It is concentrating your thoughts or questions using fine-tuning, powered by intention. Prayer is asking the question and meditation is waiting for the answer. Sometimes it helps if you have a belief system; but I have known many people to be affected by prayer at a distance, without a belief and without them knowing that they were being prayed for! There is a lot of mystery in healing too! Sometimes prayer can be used as a one-to-one local healing session such as in the practice of laying on of hands. Prayer or touch with intention is very powerful indeed. At other times prayer can be used for distant or non-local healing when the person who is thought about, does not have to be present. The following abstract on the results of prayer was published in the respected and conventional Southern Medical Journal in 1988 (USA). The study demonstrates that there can be a marked effect on recovery through prayer power. The following is just one of many such studies that highlight a closing of the gap between science and healing!»

«Randolph Byrd MD, arranged for prayer healing to be sent to 192 patients on a coronary care unit, while another 201 patients served as control. This was done with a double blind design, where neither the patients nor the treating nor the evaluating physicians knew which patients were sent the healing and which were not. The patients were randomly assigned to either of these groups and no significant differences were noted between the groups on many variables. Highly significant effects were found in the treated group (the ones receiving the prayer healing),in which there were lower incidences of intubation/ventilation, use of antibiotics, cardiopulmonary arrest, congestive heart failure, pneumonia, and the use of diuretics.»

Revista Bodisatva n. 17: budismo no Brasil

Editorial | por Lama Padma Samten

A revista Bodisatva está com uma nova diagramação. A mudança vem como resultado das diretrizes surgidas durante o encontro geral de facilitadores do Darma do CEBB, que ocorreu em maio de 2008. Esperamos que não apenas os praticantes, mas também os amigos dos praticantes, os curiosos com respeito ao budismo encontrem ressonância nos textos, nas fotos, no conteúdo.

A apresentação dos 12 elos da origem dependente que foi iniciada nas edições anteriores chega agora ao tema de spasha, contato. Trata-se da descrição de como a mente convencional se vincula e fica aprisionada ou não ao mundo sensorial.

O texto "A Sabedoria Budista nas Organizações" é um exercício de como as cinco sabedorias correspondentes aos Diani Budas podem se refletir em uma melhoria direta da prática profissional e da vida das pessoas em suas atividades nas pequenas e grandes empresas e organizações em geral. É a sabedoria dos Budas iluminando as atividades no mundo em uma das áreas aparentemente mais difíceis.

A visita do Khenpo Karthar Rinpoche ao Brasil foi muito rara e preciosa. Ele é um grande mestre de formação tradicional e esteve entre nós no momento histórico da fundação da KTC no Rio de Janeiro, quando da visita de Sua Eminência Jamgon Kongtrul Rinpoche III, no final dos anos 80. Trata-se do descortinar da visão de um mestre de grande sabedoria sobre a penetração do Darma no Ocidente e o futuro do povo tibetano.

O tema de capa da revista é um estudo histórico e abrangente, com muitas fotos, sobre o desenvolvimento do budismo no Brasil. Começa com a chegada dos imigrantes japoneses em 1908 e encerra com a consagração do templo de Guru Rinpoche no Chagdud Gonpa Khadro Ling, em Três Coroas, RS, dezembro passado. É um material de referência que aponta o momento atual como uma nova fase do budismo em sua manifestação no Brasil.

A tragédia tibetana subseqüente à invasão e anexação do Tibete pela China e a repercussão dessas ações na perspectiva das leis internacionais e da Organização das Nações Unidas é tratada pela jurista Cerys Tramontini. Em 2009 completa-se 50 anos desse sofrimento cujas causas políticas, econômicas e humanas da perpetuação são também abordadas, assim como possíveis encaminhamentos.

A seção "Aliás" trata de coisas variadas. É novidade na revista, assim como a seção Janela, que procura estabelecer uma comunicação de duas vias com o leitor. Mande suas contribuições!

"Darma com Pipoca" é uma atividade de vários dos CEBBs. Filmes de diferentes temas são apresentados e discutidos sobre o ponto de vista dos ensinamentos do Buda para a vida cotidiana. Aqui é uma seção de análise de filmes, focando nesta edição a série de televisão Lost e suas conexões profundas com os ensinamentos.

Um fragmento do Surangama Sutra enriquece os leitores com o ensinamento raro e precioso do Buda Sakiamuni sobre o reconhecimento da natureza primordial da mente através da audição dos sons.

Tenham todos uma boa leitura!

NEVER GIVE UP

His Holiness The Dalai Lama:


NEVER GIVE UP

Never give up
No matter what is going on
Never give up

Develop the heart
Too much energy in your country
Is spent on developing the mind
Instead of the heart
Develop the heart

Be compassionate
Not just to your friends
But with everyone
Be compassionate

Work for peace
In your heart
And in the world
Work for peace

And I say again
Never give up
No matter what is going on around you
Never give up


O poeta Ron Whitehead perguntou à Sua Santidade o Dalai Lama: “Você pode me dar uma mensagem para compartilhar com os jovens – os jovens de todas as idades?” Sua Santidade respondeu com uma mensagem que foi transcrita para este poema por Ron Whitehead.
Em 2002 a UNESCO (Organização das Nações Unidas) escolheu “Nunca Desista” como o seu tema global.

4º Jamgon Kongtrul

 he Fourth Jamgon Kongtrul (foto:born 1995)The child, often referred to as Jamgon Yangsi, had been born the son of His Eminence Beru Khyentse Rinpoche on the 17th of December, 1995 in the Kathmandu valley, Nepal on the anniversary of the birth of Tsongkhapa (the 25th of the Tibetan month). When Thaye Dorje first visited Bodhgaya on the 23rd December 1996, Yangsi Rinpoche despite his young age was able to spontaneously pick up some rice and toss it into the air as a mandala offering, signifying the auspicious connection between Karmapa and Jamgon Kongtrul. In 1997, at H.E. Beru Khyentse Rinpoche's request, H.H. Dalai lama performed the hair-cutting ceremony for Jamgon Yangsi in Bodhgaya. In the year 2000, His Holiness Penor Rinpoche, then head of the Nyingma sect, again reconfirmed Jamgon Yangsi as the genuine reincarnation of the Jamgon Kongtrul Lodro Thaye.

A sua auto biografia foi traduzida em inglês por R. Barron_ um livro que necessita para uma boa compreensão, um certo conhecimento dos conceitos e ensinamentos budistas. Formado em todas as tradições budistas, incluindo a tradição Bon tibetana, ele foi um exemplo a seguir.


From the foreword: amazon.com
Ringu Tulku: "If one wants to get a complete picture of Tibetan Buddhism as a whole, especially from an inner perspective, I think there is no book more important to read than The Autobiography of Jamgön Kongtrul the Great. This is the autobiography of a yogi who studied, practiced, and found the essence of each and every spiritual path in Tibet. Jamgön Kongtrul was a true saint, a great scholar, an exemplary teacher, a renowned physician, a peacemaker, and one of the most prolific writers of Tibet. The Five Great Treasuries of Kongtrul, which comprise over one hundred volumes of a thousand pages each, enshrine all the wisdom of Tibet. It is so very easy to see that if he did not compile, transmit, and publish these teachings, most of them would have been lost during the recent turmoil in Tibet.
"Jamgön Kongtrul's greatest contribution, though, is seen as being the Ri-mé movement that he and Jamyang Kyentsé Wangpo revived, a movement that is actually the essence of the Buddhist approach. (...)"


Dudjom Rinpoche: "So if we examine Jamgön Kongtrul's career (...) it is as if he spent his whole life as an author. None the less, if one thinks of his teaching and propagation of the empowerments, guidance, esoteric instructions, recitational transmissions, and so forth (...) it is as if he spent his whole life teaching and propagating. And, if one investigates how (...) he experientially cultivated the stages of creation and perfection associated with inconceivable myriads of mandalas, it seems as if he passed the length of his life in a retreat house sealed up with mud. Likewise, if one considers (...) his legacy in connection with the ten modes of doctrinal conduct, it is as if he passed his whole life diligently engaged in the sphere of work and activity. In these ways [his career] was inconceivable, within only the reach of those who are truly sublime."


Lama Chökyi Nyima (Richard Barron) is renowned as one of the most accomplished Tibetan translators in the world। Over the last thirty years, he has served as a translator for countless lamas from all from all four schools of Tibetan Buddhism, including his first teacher, Kalu Rinpoche। He completed a traditional three year retreat at Kagyu Ling in France, and later became a close disciple of the late Chagdud Tulku Rinpoche, he translateThe Autobiography of Jamgön Kongtrul here interview
