Re: [Buddhism_101] Re: Rigpa Glimpse of the Day
This is a question that I will try to anwser to the
best of my ability bear with me. From what I have
studied( I was brought to Buddhism by becomeing
instersted in the plight of Tibet) there are tow
things that can happen when H.H. the Dala Lama leaves
us and this world.
1. He could chosse not to come back to this world in
another body to lead us and 2. He will leave clues ofr
those to find him, this is usually the Pathen Lama
who is the one who helps to find the new Dala Lama but
because of what the Chinese government has done with
hiding the real Patchen Lama this may prove to be a
really hard task as the Patchen Lame that the Chinese
use to help rule over the people of Tibet is not the
real Lama who the Dala Lama help to find. Th si bot is
now in his late teens and is the worlds' youngest
Once there are a few young( probably around 2 or
three) they will be put through a series of tesets to
see which one of them is in fact the new Dala Lama.

If this elephant of mind is bound on all sides by the cord of mindfulness,
All fear disappears and complete happiness comes.
All enemies: all the tigers, lions, elephants, bears, serpents (of our emotions);
And all the keepers of hell; the demons and the horrors,
All of these are bound by the mastery of your mind,
And by the taming of that one mind, all are subdued,
Because from the mind are derived all fears and immeasurable sorrows.
