Dharma Tour in Northeastern Thailand 2006
The mind and Indriya (life) will never die.
They will live forever. They will be reborn endlessly.
Luongta's Buddha Dhamma teaching skills has been acquired from nature and he would like to teach his students and all the people who wish to learn and understand the Buddha Dhamma,what he has learnt.
For example now we are young, one day, we will get old and certainly will pass away. Similarly, in Spring, flowers are blossoming everywhere and they are so beautiful for all of us to admire, but only for a short period of time. Then they will disappear from the surface of the earth. It looks as if they are all dead. This would happen to all of us as well, that is to say, we will pass away, it is only a matter of time only. But remember that these flowers are not really dead.
What we see is not what they really are. The great majority of them are still alive in some forms. The seeds and the bulbs are being protected in some ways and given the right temperature and environment; they will spring to life again for years and years. It looks as if they have their own mind like human beings. Our minds will never die as they are being protected by our Indriya (spiritual faculties) in some ways which we cannot see with our naked eyes. It is only our body that has died and disintegrated. The mind will be reborn again and again endlessly.
So are our flowers, when the next Spring comes around, they will blossom and become lively in their own ways again. This process of coming and going, rising and falling, dead and alive, will continue forever. So Luongta would like students and all the people who have been searching for Dhamma to understand this simple process. This is Dhamma. Dhamma is Nature.
Some of the Luongta's 5 students who have been taken care of and looking after Luongta will benefit from their good karma at present and in the future. They listen to Luongta. They obey Luongta and Luongta said that during the later part of his life, before leaving this world, he would like to rely on them and live with them, at the same time, give them the opportunity to carry out more good karma and good deed.
This is Luongta's wish and he would like his students to understand. Luongta would like his students to remember that ' if they are happy today, it is likely they will be happy tomorrow' and with their good deed and good karma, they will be reincarnated in a better form and enjoy human life. This is Luongta's words. He would like all of us to be happy, to be kind, to be generous, to be compassionate, to be charitable and noble, to be helpful to one another and above all to live peacefully and harmoniously with one another. On this occasion, Luongta would like to call on the power of the Buddha, Dhamma, Sangha and the power of all heavenly beings including beings of the Bhromma loka, Deva loka and Naga loka to protect us from all harms and evil thoughts and lead us to a prosperous and a healthy life.
