Letter to Disciples No.84: SHOULD WE FEEL JOYFUL AT THE CELEBRATION OF SUFFERING?

Dear disciples!
I still remember that nineteen years ago, a disciple at Song Nguyen Tantra House sent a birthday cake to a Tantric practitioner. At that time, I temporarily lived in the same house with a couple named Cuong and Hong in a small fishing village by Han River, under Trinh Minh The Bridge, Da Nang City. One day, Ms Hong excitedly told me: “My Guru, abbot of pagoda X in Vinh Trung Ward, invites us to his birthday anniversary!”

 

I asked: “How is that birthday anniversary?”

Hong said: “I will do volunteer work at the pagoda such as cleaning the tables and chairs, cooking and then offering a present to him.”

Bridge Trinh Minh The (old) 2007 – Da Nang City

Two days later, with money borrowed from their neighbor, the couple left their daughter who was at 7th grade at home to attend the birthday party at the pagoda. I felt sorry for them upon thinking about their current difficult livelihood. Anyway, it’s up to their belief but what made me surprised was about the abbot’s birthday invitation, which made it like a mundane habit. After the party, Cuong and Hong appeared upset and told me about rich women who offered abundant of expensive gifts to the abbot to show that they were …. genuine followers, and as a result, they were invited to sit at the same table with the abbot. Meanwhile, the couple had to sit at the kitchen’s corner with other poor volunteers. At that time, I did not follow or believe in Buddhism but couldn’t help feeling annoyed: “Wow, it’s great to be an abbot! But it’s not righteous to “make a profit” in this way! If I were at this position, I would definitely not “fish in troubled waters” like that!”

“My Guru, abbot of pagoda X, Vinh Trung Ward, invites us to attend his birthday party!”

My thought had unexpectedly come true. I always told myself that I would never ask my disciples to hold birthday anniversary, even for me. I will never hold a birthday party, let alone send the invitation to disciples! That was my spontaneous thought until I happened to read a story about Ven. Master Hsuan Hua, who heavily reproached a disciple for celebrating his birthday. That’s a good example for me!

Ironically, upon seeking to learn Dharma at the Guanyin Monastery in Bien Hoa City, I found that followers here often held birthday anniversary for the abbot named Mr. Sau. I intuitively felt disaffected for thinking that a Venerable Master with full merits and virtues like Hsuan Hua never does it, let alone an ordinary monk. Later, I felt more disappointed to hear that some X or Y monks had organized their birth anniversary at the same time with the celebration date of Amida Buddha. A small pagoda in Da Nang City is said to have prepared for this celebration two days in advance, let alone the big ones with high-positioned figures.

Venerable X or Y organizes birth anniversary

Dear disciples!
Holding a birthday celebration is the right of individual liberty, which neither you nor I have the right to interdict. However, under the Buddhist perspective, I would give you some analysis…

The ultimate end of Buddhism is to break and stop the cycle of birth, given birth will lead to death and vice versa. Has anyone wished to be born so that they die then? For the whole life, Rinzai Master Bankei Yōtaku strived for the “Unborn” (sainthood) and gave teachings on what is called “Unborn Buddha Mind” (suchness, self-nature). The Buddha also pointed out that “birth, old age, sickness and death” are four kinds of suffering in this Saha world. If birth means suffering, why do you or others give it a cheer?

Sometimes you should contemplate on “why are we born in this Saha world, which the Buddha described as a burning place surrounded by innumerable suffering? And what’s more, is that “Light karma will free us from rebirth in Saha world. Buddhahood cannot be attained without the cessation of lust and passion.” So why should we rejoice the suffering? In the Four Noble Truths, the Buddha taught the necessity of knowing the cause of suffering to root up the suffering. So are you still celebrating though knowing about the suffering of “birth, old age, sickness and death?

Prince Siddhartha went for a walk and witnessed four scenes at four gates

You have been following me for a long time, especially Mat Hai with ten consecutive years. Have you ever seen me make birth anniversary? In the “Three Principal Aspects of the Path”, Master Tsongkhapa advised the practitioner where to focus their spiritual energy. He concluded: “Respectful masters have practiced like that. Those who wish to liberate should follow their path”. You are my disciples, understanding that “What goes against worldly concerns is Dharma” (Geshe Potowa); thus you should follow what I’ve been doing.

Moreover, you should ask yourself: “Who are we? A holy saint, a famous figure or an ordinary person?” Is our birthday worth if we are just an ordinary person? The holy Buddha and saints have never ever organized birth anniversary. So it will be best if you learn how to humble by stopping the celebration of your birthday. I am just an ordinary person, thus never hold such kinds of party and never let my disciples celebrate the birthday of mine or of other dharma brothers.

Great Master Tsongkhapa

Finally, we should think for our country and society. An increasing number of global population is threatening the world’s food security. Around three million babies are born each day, adding more weight to the world’s population. Vietnam’s population now stands at 90 million people, many of whom are living in remote areas and facing hunger. Our government has always been encouraging family planning. By rejoicing our birthday, are we going against the policy by advocating birth? Is it what we call “repaying the debt of gratitude towards our nation”?

Hence, both in mundane and supramundane perspectives, it will be wrong to celebrate our birthday. Apparently, the right of individual liberty should be respected, but we are Buddhist and Tantric practitioners, why behave like an ordinary person?

Gandan Pagoda, Lhasa

So now come to the question on why pagodas and monasteries still hold birthday parties for the abbot? This action leads to the equation between worldly life and the life of a true Buddhist: what should be renounced is now embraced. They have fallen into the trap of GAIN-LOSS, cause none of the followers attends the birthday party without gifts!

The only excuse for your attendance at the birthday party is that we need to be sociable when we are living with our family or working at the same company, in a bid to avoid others’ misunderstanding and vilification of us.
Above are some of my words. You should not feel joyful for the celebration of suffering!

  1. Tantraupatissa says:

    Dear Guru thanks for sharing this article. I totally agree with you regarding family planning and increase of world population. If population is greater than food available then people may use wrong means of earning and many illegal activities will carried out. Also we should not rejoice in celebrating birthday rather we should focus on liberation path.

    May Guru live long to uphold Dharma.

    May all beings be free from suffering and get enlightened.

    May pandameic of COVID 19 come to an end.

    Om Mani Padme Hum!

  2. Tantra Midhita says:

    Dear Guru,
    I will never celebrate my birth further, for it is also the day my daughter has passed. I am not in solemn grief neither. Rather I have now a lens for respecting the process of life further. I think you are right. That casting off the mantle of birthing into this world as cause for joy. It is not. It is a reminder that I am here. I am with purpose, and for me that purpose has become an attempt to not return. Also gifts have always left me astounded, because invariably someone usually feels inadequate about the gift of another. Guru, I do miss my young daughter, but I must admit I have not fully processed and don’t know how I’ll react. This will mark one year for passing on. Guru, I appreciate your articles as they deeply reflect a lot of my mentality right back at me, but sometimes I am left with more questions as like now. I know that if I am patient like the man who hounded Buddha, that my questions will dwindle away, if I seek true respite.
    Until the next article,

    Thank you, Guru

  3. Tantra Tanshami says:

    Om Mani Padme Hum. Many things better off not celebrated.

    Dear Holy Guru : Thank you so much for sharing this article… May the Guru have a long life for the benefit of Dharma .May all beings be free from suffering and become enlightened .May the pandemic be over.OM MANI PADME HUM

  5. Mật Tấn Sơn (Đỗ Trường Giang) says:

    Dear Guru,
    I read this article.
    I understand that: The right of individual liberty should be respected but holding birthday parties for the abbot is shouldn’t. Because that fallen into the trap of GAIN LOSS.
    Thank you so much.
    May Guru have good health and live long for the sake of all sentient beings.
    May all sentient beings attain the happiness of Buddha’s nature.

  6. Mật Chánh Tấn says:

    Dear holy Guru,
    I have read this article. I would like to express my gratitude for your explanation and instructions in this article. As you have emphasized that the Buddha pointed out “birth, old age, sickness and death” are four kind of suffering in this Saha world. And as buddhism practitioners, we practice Dharma in order to release from the suffering of this Saha world. But it is really conflicted when we talk like that but having opposite actions if we celebrate or hold a birthday anniversary. Therefore, I understand that if I, as a Buddhism practitioner, hold a birthday anniversary, it would mean I was celebrating the suffering that Buddha has pointed out. The Buddha has already warned us that “Placing your faith in me without understanding means defaming me”. And defamation to the Buddha will result in failing into hell. Thus, I would like to express my sincere gratitude to holy Guru for helping me to understand such an important point, which allows me not to fall into such a serious mistake – defaming Buddha just by celebrating a birthday anniversary.
    I will implement your teaching. May Guru have a long life and good health for the benefit of all sentient beings.
    May the epidemic of Covid-19 come to end soon.
    May all sentient beings attain the happiness of Buddha’s nature.
    Om Mani Padme Hum.

  7. Dr C H Lakshminarayan says:

    I bow my head at the lotus feet of Guru.
    I am highly delighted to read this highly thought provoking article by Guruji.As a matter of joke, one may say that birth and death are two important events in one’s life. So, one may say that I Will not be alive to celebrate my death anniversary.At least why should I not celebrate my birth anniversary ?
    .It is not like that! Guruji advises reason it before doing any action and do it. Buddha stresses on this point.
    We, the true Buddhists, as ordinary persons, should not celebrate our birth anniversary as Guruji mentioned that it is as good as celebrating suffering because birth is followed by old age, sickness, and death, all these being the cause of suffering !
    Buddha never celebrated his birthday anniversary,though he lead a royal life before as I have read in any book of his life history !. On the contrary, as Guru mentioned, some monks and Abbot’s of pagodas and monasteries do celebrate their anniversary (may be with an intention of worldly gain from offerings and valuable gifts !)
    The only explanation they may offer in support of their action is that they have born as HUMAN BEING ( and not in the realm of asuras, demons,gods, Heaven) where full ENLIGHTENMENT is possible like that of Buddha and not in any other form of birth.Hence they celebrate to rejoice that! This ambiguity is out discussion here.Moreover,monks and abbots of monasteries and pagodas and international Buddha organizations also celebrate Buddha’s birthday all over which seems not correct as we are true Buddhists and Tantric people !
    As per the advise if Guruji and as it is rationale,we should have right view and perception regarding celebration of birth anniversaries !
    In fact, Guruji of Song Nguyen Tantra house so for never celebrated his birthday anniversary and is a good example for what he does as he says.He advises his disciples always to do so.
    In addition, I would like to add one more suggestion to stop celebrating X- mas (birth day celebration of Jesus) on similar grounds which has become a routine every year as we true Buddhists and Tantric people.
    This is what Buddha preached : Don’t do anything blindly. Reason it, deeply ponder over it and do whatever your conscious says right and rationale and worth doing.!Guruji also ,time and again,teaches to have right view and execute the same in action.
    Om Mani Padme Hum.

  9. Mật Phước says:

    Dear Guru,
    I have read this article.
    I understand that, the trivial people, they have celerated their birthday, it’s no problem, because, they don’t have any right view from the Buddha. But, when we have been becoming the Buddhists towards the liberation, we know the suffering of “birth; old age; sickness; death” which shouldn’t celerate it, because, Tsongkhapa Master said :”respectful Masters have practiced like that. Those who wish to liberate should follow their path” .
    If as the Buddhists have celerated the birthday anniversary, they are same the trivial people.
    May Guru have good health and longevity for the sake of all senteint beings.
    May the Covid 19 pandemic be soon over.
    May all senteint beings achieve the happiness of Buddha’s nature.

  10. Mật Khả Phúc says:

    Dear Holy Guru,

    Thank you so much for opening my eyes with this beneficial article. Throughout your article, I have understood the mundane, the supramundane perspective of birth and the reason why it is really wrong to celebrate our birthday. A birthday party of an ordinary person can cost a lot of money, time and energy and it also causes the jealously, competition, envy and hater between people who join the party. So why those temples, pagodas still hold the abbot birthday parties? It’s all for their show off, their fame, their benefit and advantages. I have heard many monasteries and pagodas invite people to the abbot birthday and inject the thoughts in beings their attendance and their value of gift will bring them merit. I don’t know how much merit they have got but after the party, none of them feel happy and peace instead more jealousy, sadness, upset and even in debts. I’m so grateful to be your disciple and follow your footsteps. You have given us so many enlightened lessons and grant us the new lenses so we don’t fall into the trap of Gain-Loss. I will remember “birth, old age, sickness and death” are four kinds of suffering in this Saha world and we should not feel joyful for the celebration of suffering.

    I sincerely pray for the health and longevity of Guru and your consort for the sake of all sentient beings.

    May Covid-19 pandemic will eliminate soon.

    May all sentient beings attain the happiness of Buddha nature.

    Om Mani Padme Hum!

  11. Mật Từ says:

    Dear holy Guru,
    I have read this article. As the Buddha once taught in Dharmapada sutra that “Like a fish snatched from its watery home and cast on land, the mind trembles and quivers leaving the dominion of Mara”, there is no joy and pleasure in celebrating a mundane birth into samsara. Not to mention about the endless suffering a being have been suffered through many lives, alongside many realms that they may not aware, a birthday party literally embraces itself salient sufferings, as the mentioned story of the couple who was forced to borrow money from their neighbor, meanwhile their family was put under heavy burden, and finally they came back being unhappy. From seeing those birthday parties of the abbots, somehow I can see that birthday parties have been used as a mean for the holder to make profit, to show off and to emphasize their “existence” which is also an illustration of ego – of me, for me, because of me. I was strongly impressed by your question that “Who are we? Is our birthday worth if we are just an ordinary person”. I am grateful for the learnt lesson, so that we stopped celebrating for the suffering, or even strengthen the sufferings by doing so.
    I sincerely pray for Guru’s health and longevity for the benefit of all sentient beings.
    May all sentient being attain the Buddha nature’s happiness.
    May Covid19 pandemic end soon.
    Om Mani Padme Hum.

    I thank you for giving us the precious gift so that we can recognize what is true happiness and what is suffering. Previously we thought that the day marking our birth was a happy day filled with happiness but when we knew Guru knew chanhtuduy.com all previous thoughts were dissolved and we understood that the day we are born is the day we receive suffering we embrace suffering. in order to transform that suffering we need to cherish this precious person to practice, not to waste our time in futile pleasures for just a moment but to make us vicious in the six paths of reincarnation. I thank the Guru for giving us priceless gifts with the practical benefits of liberation, not like the cheap gifts of no value of the ordinary world.

    Dear Guru,
    I have read this article. I understood the title of the article “Should we feel joyful at the celebaration of suffering?”. In the past, when I was still in ignorance, I was always eager to come to my birthday and look forward to receiving meaningful gifts and wishes. I used to think that birthday is an extremely special day for each person. However, when I was reading Guru’s writings such as “The parent, Who do give birth to me?”, I gradually understood that this worldly life is a cycle of reincarnation without a stop, and Buddhism will help people to walk into the door of liberation. Thank you so much, Guru.

    Dear Guru

    This article gives me a more thorough understanding about the birthday party in Buddhist perspective. Birth is one of 12 links of independent origination that lead us into the samsaric life. We feel joyful at birth celebration means we will be reborn into the Saha world for many kalpas just to celebrate this kind of “suffering”. Is it worth for us to do that? Meanwhile, the Buddha taught:” Each day passing by, life is shorten. Like a fish out of the water. There’s nothing worth to cheer.” Furthermore, you’ve pointed out another indirect consequence of birth delivery, that is the danger of population explosion which affects the food security and many other potential dangers. Many attacks or fights are reported from birthday parties caused by overuse of alcohols. So celebrating birth party is the right of personal liberty but as a Buddhist, I will keep in mind your teaching that we should renounce what worth renouncing by not celebrating this kind of “suffering”. My gratefulness to you for this very practical Dharma sermon.

    May Guru live long for the benefit of all sentient beings
    May all sentient beings wake up at the state of enlightenment

    Dear Guru,

    Thank you for your teaching on this article: “Should we feel joyful at the celebration of sufferings?” You have pointed out the answer for us. That’s the right of individual liberty, but when we understand that the birth and the birthday are only the roots of suffering, there’s nothing worth to hold our birth anniversary excepting failing in the gain and loss wind and being more suffered. By stopping the celebration of our birthday, we learn how to humble ourselves and following the respectful masters on the path to liberation.

    Through the stories of those abbots who still hold and invite their disciples to their birth anniversary, I learnt another fact that not every abbot in big pagodas or monasteries following the right view of the Buddha and guiding their followers on the right path to liberation, but to samsara. I pray for them to keep modesty and have a sense of shame.

    May Guru have good health and longevity for spreading Pure Mind Yoga for the sake of all sentient beings.
    May the epidemic of Covid-19 come to an end soon.
