4 things to do if you want to become a Buddhist monk

Phurba-me-588x516.jpg

Ever thought about leaving everything behind and become a Buddhist monk?

Have you, at some stage in your life, felt inspired by devoting yourself to meditation and helping others?

I’m always happy when I hear that someone is considering to walk that path. It can be a unique way to deepen one’s understanding and to help people.

However, let me share a few things I learned on the way (I was a Tibetan buddhist monk for 10 years). I summarized them in 4 tips that you might want to consider before making a decision.

Here are 4 important aspects of a monk’s life, I’ll start with the rough ones. If you are a woman considering to become a nun, the very same applies.

## Personal tranquility? Just forget it.

The mass media has fed us pictures of serene meditators, facing gorgeous Himalayan landscapes.

You’ll probably have moments like that if you chose to become a monk, but tha

New on Steemit. HOW EXCITING! Quick into about me..

Hey fellow Steemians,

My name on here is Charles, so you can call me Charles or whatever name you'd like. Let me start off by saying that I will have to come back and edit this at another time to add more information on here since I need to continue studying.

I currently live in Tijuana, Mexico where I work at a call center and I study information and communication technology online at the University of Guadalajara. It's super late here right now and I'm only up because I am SLAMMED with so much homework.

Here is a picture of the Zona Rio looks like:
http://www.ensenada.net/TijuanaInnovadora/images/sede_cecut.jpg

Anyway, here is some info about me:

I used to study graphic design, but changed career paths after struggling with clients.
I'm one of the friendliest people out there.
I'm very creative.
I love all types of art (photography, illustration, painting, drawing, etc.) and I used to draw every single day when I was studying graphic design years back.
I used to be a vegetarian, not so much anym

The Root Cause: Social Oppression and the 4 Noble Truths

https://i.imgsafe.org/3cb83c1f57.jpg

It is no secret that freedom can cease to exist. Far beyond the dogma of religious institutions, we find that our social architectures can reflect our spiritual traditions. If the ideas and actions of Mother Teresa, Simone de Beauvoir, Noor Inayat Khan, Vandana Shiva, Pema Chodron, and others, were supported to the same degree as our banking and real estate systems are, how different would our world appear!? Pope Francis, Abbie Hoffman, Muhammed Ali, Ghandi, Lama Garchen Rinpoche, and countless others, have expressed their spiritual values in respect to social philosophy. Political philosophy and social activism exemplify an evolutionary process. Like all relative matters in an objective and ever changing duality, a time-based reality of what was, is, and is to come, socioeconomic action has causes and effects. These causes and effects are secondary to our internal observation of our external identity. Even to a Tibetan monk, while emolliating himself, the primary issue a

Elephant in the Oval Office: The Trump Transition and the Morphogenetic Field

https://i.imgsafe.org/1136f64638.jpeg

The idea of a Morphogenetic Field or Limbic Resonance may seem abstract, however, we all might just be able to have direct experience if we stop, listen, feel, and rest in the presence of awareness. There have been those times when you have sensed that someone was looking at you, to find out they were. It is well documented that dogs seemingly know when their owners are coming home. Have you ever 'known’ when someone was cheating on you? Do you remember when Obama was elected president? Was there a feeling in the air? Just an empty campaign slogan of hope, or something more visceral, more real?

I'm not old enough to remember the assassination of John F Kennedy or Martin Luther King jr., so I can’t say what it felt like to experience those events. I've heard people say with a confused laugh, as they reflect on their youth, that they “don't remember the sixties”, and I have wondered what prompted such a curious statement. This was a time when television was ju

Slow Saturday: Cutting Through Spiritual Materialism, by Chogyam Trungpa


In an ideal world, Saturdays will be reading days. There will be laws stating the exact amount of cosiness of your coach, the exact amount of coffee in your cup sitting handy on the coffee table and the exact amount of hours dedicated to reading in this context: minimum 6. And we should all obey these laws, otherwise we will be punished by working, instead of reading.

Alas, there aren't such laws on this planet, at least not yet.

Well, even without these laws, I managed to do a solid block of 6 hours reading today. Minus coffee. And minus the cosiness of the coach. Because what I read wasn't a book, but code. JavaScript, AngularJS, stuff like that. Ok, I admit it: I worked almost the entire day at @zentasktic. With some moderate success, to be honest, but not with the success I was expecting. If my work would have been as effective as I wanted it to be, this post would have been generated from within

Nobody is Compassionate

"Myths tell us how to confront and bear and interpret suffering, but they do not say that in life there can or should be no suffering.

When the Buddha declares there is escape from sorrow, the escape is Nirvana, which is not a place, like heaven, but a psychological state of mind in which you are released from desire and fear ... (and your life becomes — ) harmonious, centered, and affirmative (even with suffering).

The Buddhists speak of the bodhisattva — the one who knows immortality, yet voluntarily enters into the field of the fragmentation of time and participates willingly and joyfully in the sorrows of the world. And this means not only experiencing sorrows oneself but participating with compassion in the sorrows of others. Compassion is the awakening of the heart from bestial self-interest to humanity. The word 'compassion' means literally 'suffering with.' ... compassion condones suffering in that it recognizes, yes, suffering is life. " - Joseph Campbell, [The Power of Myth](https://www.a

Consciousness Exists Eternally.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1cpDDXQNZ_Q

Apparently consciousness is everywhere. And it is consciousness that re-incarnates according to Buddhism. New theories in neuroscience suggest consciousness is an intrinsic property of everything, just like gravity. buddhism and neuroscientists are on the same page.

Worth listening to these wise words of both a great scientist and the Noble Winner, Dalai Lama about what consciousness is really...

Solitary Monk sits atop a mountain in Phu Hin Ronkla, Thailand

https://s21.postimg.org/uewp9y5jr/IMG_8714.jpg

Some friends and I had traveled to Petchabun province in the north of Thailand to see how the locals celebrated Thai New Year. Nearby where we were staying there was a large National Park. The national park although not particularly well known among travellers, covers nearly 80,000 acres and stretches across 3 Thai provinces all the way to Laos. Due to the rugged terrain and isolated location, the park served as home to the CPT (Communist Party of Thailand) during most of the tumultuous late 70's and early 80's.

We were suggested to take about a 20km drive to the top of one of the mountains in the park (Phu Hin Ronkla) where we would see the rock formations of Lan Hin Taek (‘field of the cracked stones’). At this point, near the edge of the mountain sandstone knolls create a strange visual aesthetic.

Bubbles And A Butterfly

https://scratchliving.files.wordpress.com/2016/10/unnamed-file.jpg

I was into bubbles a few years ago, still like to draw and paint bubbles. I like iPad games popping bubbles too! This was done in watercolor if I remember correctly. I did a whole series of bubble paintings and sold or gave all of them away.

Phena Sutta: Foam, translated from the Pali by Thanissaro Bhikkhu

Form is like a glob of foam;
feeling, a bubble;
perception, a mirage;
fabrications, a banana tree;
consciousness, a magic trick —
this has been taught
by the Kinsman of the Sun.
However you observe them,
appropriately examine them,
they're empty, void
to whoever sees them
appropriately.

Beginning with the body
as taught by the One
with profound discernment:
when abandoned by three things

— life, warmth, & consciousness —
form is rejected, cast aside.
When bereft of these
it lies thrown away,
sensele

How To Find Peace Of Mind

https://youtu.be/Bi6vvhXfScU

This is the first video released by a project that I admire very much, called Study Buddhism. The project is coordinated by prof. Alexander Berzin (many times translator of The Dalai Lama and a very profound connaisseur of Tibetan Buddism) with whom I had the privilege to talk a few times. In February this year I also had the privilege to organize an event with him and one of his colleagues and it was a very enlightening, but at the same time natural and warm, experience.

The short video above dwells on 3 main principles that you need to understand before starting to train your mind for happiness: interdependence (everything is related to everything), impermanence (everything will cease to exist, eventually) and compassion (everybody has his own set of troubles and fighting his own battles).

It's simple advice but it just works.

Why Buddha would have condemned the largest Buddhist festival in Cambodia

Three weeks ago, the Cambodian community in the Netherlands have celebrated the largest Buddhist festival – ‘Pchum Ben’. Pchum Ben means literally ‘Gathering Offering’, but can also be loosely translated as ‘Ancestor’s Day’. 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z0-_NKTqyR0

(Pchum Ben celebration in the Netherlands)

It is a 15-day festival to honor our ancestors. It is believed that restless and hungry spirits, ‘preta’, move up from the underworld to contact their relatives that are still alive. These spirits have had accumulated too much ‘karma’ (bad volitional energy) during their earthly lives and as punishment they have to roam the underworld hungrily. However, once a year the gates of the underworld open and they are allowed to receive food from their living relatives. During the festival, people can offer food to their ancestors by putting food on the ground or they can offer the food to Buddhist monks which will mystical

Tibetan letter "A" for dream yoga.

Tibetan A is a sacred symbol that is used in tibetan practices of yoga dream. It is essential to concentrate on that symbol for improvement of awareness in lucid dreams.

The images below are drawn from tibetan script. I've made to use as a desktop background. I can make it in any resolution you wish absolutely for free. Feel free to ask.

A Short Guide to Happiness: A reminder

A Short Guide to Happiness

None of what you are about to read, hasn't been said before. In fact, everything I write, is advice I have internalized from other sources. This doesn't mean that it's not worth repeating; in fact, I believe now, more than ever, it is worth being repeated.
ChangeOurselfChangetheWorld264b3.jpg
The Life Trap

The daily hustle and bustle of life in western society has us chasing the next best thing. If you aren't chasing the next best thing, you are most likely on a path toward something that you believe will bring you happiness, ie your dream car, house, job, girlfriend, computer, etc. Why do you believe these will bring you happiness? They will likely bring you joy, at least for a little while, but that joy will fade away, and you will likely feel like you need something else. It's as though these possessions are a drug, and you need something bigger and better to get that same rush that you felt after ac

Voluntaryist Reflections on Literature- Buddhism's 8 Verses for Training the Mind

#reinvest post

 Religious writings have always been the most controversial throughout  history, so I thought to myself, why not give a good critique of  some of the most inspiring, thought provoking religious writings from my  current perspective as an anarchist. I have started in on this  reading religious meditations, verses and other writings on and off for  most of my life, but never dissected them before for what they are. In  the Anarchist Reflections on Literature section this week, we will  review Buddhism's 8 Verses for Training the Mind 

Verse 1 "With a determination to achieve the highest aim For the benefit of all sentient beings Which surpasses even the wish-fulfilling gem, May I hold them dear at all times." 

According to the Dalai Lama, this first verse identifies the greatest  achievement for oneself is to work for the benefit of all sentient  beings. At first, you may se

Free Your Mind and Escape The Matrix

https://www.steemimg.com/images/2016/09/17/freeyourmind1ce27.jpg

I'm trying to free your mind, Neo

Like Neo in The Matrix things are not what they appear to be. We may live our whole lives thinking we know what is real only to find out perhaps when we draw our last breath that we were wrong. A lot of people think the Matrix is out there - our jobs, the people around us, society…so we start looking around ourselves for a way out of the maze and start running and moving and changing things on the outside thinking YES this time I’ve got it!

But the Matrix is not out there. It’s inside of us. We are the ones that create it. The way that we create this matrix is by thinking that our thinking is who we are. So, when we notice the narrative in our heads that says this job is wrong so now I need to escape or this person is wrong so I need a new partner or society is so messed up that it’s society’s fault that I feel bad or my life is terrible it must be true, right?

I’m not saying that it’

Anarchist Reflections on Literature- Buddhism's 8 Verses for Training the Mind

Religious writings have always been the most controversial throughout history, so I thought to myself, why not give a good critique of some of the most inspiring, thought provoking religious writings from my current perspective as an anarchist. I have started in on this reading religious meditations, verses and other writings on and off for most of my life, but never dissected them before for what they are. In the Anarchist Reflections on Literature section this week, we will review Buddhism's 8 Verses for Training the Mind

Verse 1

"With a determination to achieve the highest aim

For the benefit of all sentient beings

Which surpasses even the wish-fulfilling gem,

May I hold them dear at all times."

According to the Dalai Lama, this first verse identifies the greatest achievement for oneself is to work for the benefit of all sentient beings. At first, you may see this as some sort of enslavement to society, but when you read further into the ve

Letter from the Office of His Holiness the 17th Karmapa, August 5th, 2016

SEAT OF HIS HOLINESS THE 17TH GYALWANG KARMAPA ORGYEN TRINLEY DORJE

From the Monastery of the Practice Lineage, Karma Kamts’ang (sgrub-brgyud karma kaM-tshang gyi dgon-sde):

Respectfully addressed to all the Assemblies,

Due to the arising of the many most unfortunate hindrances to the essential teaching of the Practice Lineage [Karma Kagyü], along with its Upholders, a directive decree for virtue, on behalf of His Eminence the Glorious Victorious Master, the Karmapa, Orgyen T’rinlay Dorjé (rgyal-dbang karma-pa o-rgyan 'phrin-las rdo-rje), has been issued, which humbly requests that our [Karma Kagyü] monasteries immediately practice, in an effective manner, the Māra-Repelling Ritual for the Heart of the Transcendental Practice of Deep Insight Sūtra (sher-snying bdud-zlog), and the Repelling Ritual of the

Nicholas' Self Intro: Kung Fu Enthusiast, Anarchist in the making, and Being "Chinese".

Jeff Berwick and The Dollar Vigilente is why I am here. I haven't totally understood how Steemit works, I guess I am going to find out by doing. Same was being an anarchist, buying gold, and investing defensively; I can only find out by doing them. There just seem to be a better way to live than remain a working stiff in an economy that doesn't work. People ought to have figured out by now how to work less and live more. I think they have sustainable robotic vertical farms that are in the making in northern Europe, I will post that when I come across it again.

Things that are influencing my life currently: I am on the second reading of The Diamond Cutter. Michael Roach explains Karma and Emptiness extremely well here. Being a Geshe level Tibetan Buddhist Monk, he was sent back to New York to built a business using Buddhism principles. It was so successful that Warren Buffet bought it. What is the secret sauce? Planting good mental seeds/Karma buy helping others. Isn’t that why we are all here.
