Anh Ngữ: Before I Was Myself, You Made Me, Me

Before I was myself you made me, me
With love and patience, discipline and tears,
Then bit by bit stepped back to set me free,
Allowing me to sail upon my sea,
Though well within the headlands of your fears.
Before I was myself you made me, me

Anh Ngữ: Mother (Song ngữ)



Mother


If I could give you diamonds
for each tear you cried for me.
If I could give you sapphires
for each truth you’ve helped me see.
If I could give you rubies
for the heartache that you’ve known
If I could give you pearls
for the wisdom that you’ve shown.

Anh Ngữ: The 12 Laws Of Karma

What is Karma? Karma is the Sanskrit word for action. It is equivalent to Newton’s law of ‘every action must have a reaction’. When we think, speak or act we initiate a force that will react accordingly. This returning force maybe modified, changed or suspended, but most people will not be able eradicate it. This law of cause and effect is not punishment, but is wholly for the sake of education or learning. A person may not escape the consequences of his actions, but he will suffer only if he himself has made the conditions ripe for his suffering. If he were to continue acting in such a way that the retribution cannot come about, because the conditions are not appropriate, then he may postpone the fruition of his karma. If he can suspend it until he is in the spirit world, then he may work at this particular karma in this intermission between death and next life. Or he may wait until another life in which he is more developed so that he can gleaned the educational value of this retribution. Conversely, his life could be so derelict that the blessings due to him cannot fructify until a later date or a subsequent life. All these fall into the category of suspension of karma to a more propitious period or life.

Anh Ngữ: If the Buddha is not a god, then why do people worship him?

There are different types of worship. When someone worships a god, they praise him or her, making offerings and ask for favours, believing that the god will hear their praise, receive their offerings and answer their prayers. Buddhists do not indulge in this kind of worship. The other kind of worship is when we show respect to someone or something we admire. When a teacher walks into a room we stand up, when we meet a dignitary we shake hands,when the national anthem is played we salute. These are all gestures of respect and worship and indicate our admiration for persons and things. This is the type of worship Buddhist practise. A statue of the Buddha with its hands rested gently in its lap and its compassionate smile reminds us to strive to develop peace and love within ourselves.

Anh Ngữ: What Is Life About?

Anh Ngữ: Eulogy

Eulogy




Minh Kiệt - Trần Quốc Tuấn (Thomas)

My best friend’s funeral was today. Last night, as I was preparing myself mentally and emotionally for today, I received a text message from my sister asking if I would like to do the eulogy for Thomas. I couldn’t even describe to you my thoughts at that moment. I was scared. I was nervous. I was afraid I wouldn’t say the right things. But in the end, I wanted to do it… for Thomas. For my best friend. So, to those who would like to read the words I said today at his funeral, here they are:

I wanted to talk first on behalf of our GĐPT family. I know that all of us in GĐPT have a lot of wonderful memories of Thomas because he was such an big part of our lives. I met Thomas through GĐPT, …I don’t remember when, though. He’s just one of those kids you were pretty sure were born at chùa because he’s been in GĐPT since forever. I have had the honor and pleasure to grow up with him as a Buddhist and as a member of GĐPT. Thomas had the spirit of a Buddhist. I think all of us at GĐPT Viên Minh can agree that Thomas was one our most dedicated members. He was hard-working, compassionate, stepped up to every task he was given, and never backed down from a challenge. Thomas and I were in the same lines a couple of times in Oanh Vũ Nam, served as Đầu Đàn’s together, and when Oanh Vũ Nam grew too big and had to split into two large groups, we served as Đầu Đàn Nhất’s together. “Boss Masters” was what he’d like to call us. In Ngành Thiếu, we served as Đội Trưởngs together in Anôma. Then when we were both in Ngành Thanh, I was his Đội Phó. And recently, he became a Huynh Trưởng and a teacher for the Oanh Vũ at GĐPT Viên Minh. So I can definitely say that Thomas was a wonderful leader and an extremely dedicated member of our GĐPT. Thomas and I even made up a few of our GĐPT dances together—that one where we dressed up as high school nerds and danced with the chairs? He was the “Boss Master.” That dance was all his idea. And Thomas loved to Múa Lân, and he especially loved to get on that red board and breathe fire. …no one could breathe fire like he could. He loved to dance. And he loved to sing. He loved being a part of GĐPT. And he loved being a Buddhist.
