Unfortunately, the sound is poor. It is very difficult to understand (plus a lot of loud noise in the background). 🙁

I bow down to you my beloved Guru, Garchen Rinpoche. <3 🙏

I am pretty sure that the sound quality does not have to do with which page it is on - rather with the original recording. Because the parameters for delivering sound do not change from one FB page to another. If anyone knows differently please let me know-I am always trying to understand FB better)

It was better on Ina's page

🙏🙏🙏

His Holiness Kyabgon Chetsang Rinpoche will lead the 800th Anniversary of Lord Jigten Sumgon's Parinirvana, October 19-25, 2017, at Jangchub Ling Monastery in Dehradun, India. HE Garchen Rinpoche will also attend and encourages all devotees to take part in this historic commemoration.

International Drikung Kagyu Council
Tashi Delek to all my Dharma friends. This fall, the Drikung Kagyu Institute, Jangchubling in Dehradun India, will be commemorating the 800th Anniversary of Lord Jigten Sumgon’s Maha Parinirvana. To me, an old man, this is one of the most important events of my life and I will surely attend this special celebration. Likewise, I encourage all followers of the Drikung Kagyu to join us for this prayer festival. Indeed, the practice of the Buddha-dharma is based on prayer and aspiration. Lord Jigten Sumgon is our root guru of many lifetimes and therefore such a gathering is truly inconceivable. At this time, we shall unite the three types of faith and make extensive prayers for the benefit and happiness of all. Moreover, His Holiness, who will preside over this celebration, will also offer teachings. It is my sincere hope that you will be able to attend. Tashi Delek Phunsum-tsok (Perfect Goodness and Auspiciousness)!

各方法友,吉祥如意!

今年秋天,印度的直貢噶舉強久林寺將舉辦怙主吉天頌恭究竟涅槃八百週年紀念活動。對我這年紀已高的老人,這將是我人生中最重要的活動之一,我一定會出席這場特別的盛會。於此,我也鼓勵所有直貢噶舉的弟子信徒們前來參加此法會慶典。

確實的來說,佛法的修持是立基於祈請與發願。怙主吉天頌恭是我們累世的根本上師,因此我們得以相聚實為不可思議的。在此時,我們應具足三種信心,並廣大發心祈願利一切有情眾生。此外,尊勝直貢法王赤列倫珠將會主持這場盛典,並給予許多佛法教授。我誠摯地希望大家都能參加。

Gar quote #7 ~

Effortful compassion arises due to cultivating the thought, "All sentient beings have been my parents in a past life". It is habituated through perceiving everyone that one encounters as family. For instance, you see an older person as your mother or father, a younger person as your child, a same-aged person as your brother or sister. You cultivate this until great love for all beings has taken birth. Effortful compassion requires an object of compassion.

Effortless compassion arises when you rest within the nature of mind. How? When you see your own true nature, it is very blissful, great joy. Then you understand from personal experience that such sublime happiness actually exists, yet limitless sentient beings have not seen this. Whoever has not experienced this nature suffers greatly. Ordinarily we think that some people have great happiness and not many problems - rich people for example.

Despite the fact that rich people sometimes suffer even more, everyone, to put it briefly, who has not seen the nature of mind suffers. When you realize that, by seeing true happiness immense compassion arises. Effortless compassion does not require an object of compassion. In order for such compassion to arise, you must first experience nature of mind - how thoughts and afflictions dissolve into the unmoving space of timeless awareness without rejecting or accepting.

This is a very happy nature. seeing this, naturally, effortlessly compassion arises for all those who have not been able to see this before. If one has not seen the naturally blissful nature of mind, one is bound to suffer. I bow down to the great treasure of unconditioned love, Chenrezig.
