Thus for myself and those alike me, I have spoken these thirty pieces of advice from the heart. Whatever little merit may arise from such a spirit of renunciation, may all beings be guided in the wild expanses of existence, and be established in the great bliss. By walking in the footsteps of the Buddhas and Bodhisattvas of the three times and of all the great saints, may we become their supreme sons. Thus urged by a little bit of renunciation, Tsultrim Lodro conceived these thirty pieces of advice from his heart.

(1) Doing so, instead of accumulating merit, both the Lama and the donators accumulate demerit.
(2) Fame and obscurity; pleasure and pain; gain and loss; praise and blame.
(3) Of Hinayana, Mahayana and Vajrayana.
(4) migs-med sNying-rJe: "compassion without representations, non-referential compassion"
(5) One of Longchenpa's names.

Dear Dharma Friends:

Fund Raising for the Rental of Premise for the "Dudjom Buddhist Association"

We have been feeling extremely exhilarated and blessed after we came back from Nepal where we were most fortunate to have received the "Four Preliminaries" of the Dudjom Tersar Lineage from Kyabje Chadral Sangye Dorje Rinpoche. We have extreme confidence and faith in Kyabje Chadral Rinpoche for his guiding us on the path towards perfect liberation and enlightenment.

Another reason for our exhilaration and gratitude is that Dr. Kin-Keung Chan, all along, spares no efforts in teaching us about the basic concepts and fundamental principles of Dharma practices. In particular, we have the golden opportunity to receive the "Four Preliminaries" from Kyabje Chadral Rinpoche just because we are members of the Association, founded by Dr. Chan and Ms. Law Mei Ling. After his return from Nepal, Dr. Chan has been busy in preparing for the exposition of the "Four Preliminaries" to us, even though he is under heavy workloads. We are most grateful to his compassionate commitment in assisting us to follow the guidance of Kyabje Chadral Rinpoche.

Recently, after discussing about the suitable venue for conducting the lessons on the "Four Preliminaries" we all came up with the unanimous idea of renting a venue as the premise for the "Dudjom Buddhist Association" so as to facilitate future Dharma practice, sojong, meditation, and other teachings, etc. We learnt from the inaugural issue of "Light of Lotus" that Kyabje Chadral Rinpoche is in full support of setting up a premise for the Association . If so, it will greatly contribute towards the propagation of Dharma, and that more sentient beings will be blessed by Kyabje Chadral Rinpoche and be nurtured by Dr. Chan and Ms. Law. Moreover, we could further draw our concerted efforts together in realizing our common ideal, that is to assist more motherly sentient beings on the path to liberation and enlightenment.

Please fill in the following and tick the appropriate boxes.
Name: Telephone No.:
I am in favour of raising fund to rent a venue for the premise for Dudjom Buddhist Association.
I am not in favour of raising fund to rent a venue for the premise for Dudjom Buddhist Association.
If the above choice is positive, the amount you would like to donate monthly will be and we hope that the amount could be committed for a year, after which a further review will be conducted.

Yours in the Dharma,

A group of Dharma friends who have received the "Four Preliminaries"
