The Buddha was a philosopher, meditator, spiritual teacher, and religious leader who is credited as the founder of Buddhism. He was born as Siddhartha Gautama in India in 566 BC into an aristocratic family and when he was twenty-nine years old, he left the comforts of his home to seek the meaning of the suffering he saw around him. 


After six years of arduous yogic training, he abandoned the way of self-mortification and instead sat in mindful meditation beneath a bodhi tree. On the full moon of May, with the rising of the morning star, Siddhartha Gautama became the Buddha, the awakened one. The Buddha wandered the plains of northeastern India for 45 years more, teaching the path or Dharma he had realized in that moment. Around him developed a community of people, drawn from every tribe and caste, devoted to practicing this path.


Nowadays, he is worshiped by most Buddhist schools as the enlightened one who has escaped the cycle of birth and rebirth, transcending Karma. Their main teachings focus on their insight into duhkha meaning “suffering” and into Nirvana, which means the end of suffering. 

What is the meditation method?


Lay Buddist Phat Thanh Luan:
From sitting place stood up, walked to the front of Buddha, knelt down, joined hands and respectfully
talked to the Buddha as this:
Respectfully dear World Honored One: Respectfully the World Honored One please teach us 4
questions:


1/- One word Zen is how do we practice?


2/- What method do we use to create merit and for what?


3/- What is the Home of the Purity Dharma Body?


4/- This Purity Zen dharma, later on if there are people who ask, how must we teach them,
respectfully the World Honored One please teach us?
 

Buddha taught:
- Buddhist Phat Thanh Luan, Buddha answer your 4 questions:


Question 1: The one word Zen is 1 word for practice. This one word has 4 words to practice: Drop,
Stop, Cease, and Leave.


Question 2: Create merit is helping others to have awareness of this method for liberation, when they
have achieved practicing then you could have merit.

Question 3: The Home of the Purity Dharma Body, which is the home in the Purity Nature Ocean for
Buddha to live.


Question 4: This Purity Zen dharma and the method for liberation, which just teach for those people
who heartily want to liberate and then we should find the method to help them. Although whomever,
you speak but they don’t listen. They bring out their studying knowledge to debate with you. One word
you shouldn’t speak, one letter you also are not to breathe a word.
You must study to memorize 12 lines of verse as bellow:Purity Zen is the One word Zen
 

“Drop, Stop, Cease, and Leave” quickly end birth death
Live in the physical world compete
Compete as strong, as birth death pull us!
Wants to end birth death must “Stop”
“Stop” seek, “Stop” search, “Stop” discuss also
Mind “Stop” that is in peace
“Stop” follows the physical world, thousands of joyful.
Purity Zen must revoke the “ego”
Because Ego is Self, Samsara must go
Buddha: The One-word Zen is
Peaceful nature is good, whatever else is also leave.
The lay Buddhist Phat Thanh Luan, who has clearly and thoroughly had-all of his questions answered,
he was very joyful and thankful to the Buddha, and then he respectfully bowed to the Buddha and then
walked out
 

Venerable Sariputta:
From sitting place stood up, walked to the front of Buddha, knelt down, moved the shoulder dress to
the right, joined hands and had a dear talk with the Buddha as that:
Respectfully dear the World Honored One: Respectfully the World Honored One please teach us the
reason at the beginning Buddha taught us the Purity Zen dharma, but we spoke that Buddha was
possessed by a devil. Why so we have those words which speak as this, respectfully the World Honored
One please teach us?


Buddha taught:
In each human being have 2 natures:
 

One: Buddha nature is purity.
 

Two: Human nature is holding on to the Self.
Thereupon, when all of you just hear Buddha speak about practicing Purity Zen which is not endeavor
practicing. All of you didn’t remain calm to ask for clearly, why is it without endeavor practicing, but
you all used the Suspicion nature of human nature therefore you spoke as that.


Buddha speak for you to be clear: When Buddha taught this Purity Zen dharma that there are:

One: Very many Buddhas who have divided body that came to grace with their attendance.


Two: The Diamond Deity who always whenever also follow beside Buddha to assist this true dharma
Purity Zen.
Thereupon, When Buddha declared to teach this Purity Zen dharma, if there is whomever despise to
reprobate or oppose is hit by the Diamond Deity used the Diamond pestle to hit the word of despise to
reprobate or oppose return back to that person. Because this person was hit force return from the
Diamond Deity, therefore this person was sick. If lightly, this person is handicap; if heavy, this person
lost his life! Thereupon, Buddha must spread the Great Supernatural Power of Purity Zen to break the
Yin force of the hit from the Diamond pestle, so all of you don’t be sick.
 

Venerable Sariputta listened to the Buddha answered for him, he automatically cried and presented
with the Buddha:

- “We follow the World Honored One practice for a long time but we still couldn’t distinguish how to
practice for liberation, how to practice for reincarnation. He was speaking and crying and respectfully
bowed to the Buddha and then walked out.
 

Upasaka Trien Phuong Thanh:
From sitting place stood up, walked to the front of Buddha, knelt down, joined hands and respectfully
presented to the Buddha as follows:
Respectfully dear World Honored One, those teaching of the World Honored One, I have penetrated.
Daily, I live by the business sale career, I follow practicing the Purity Zen dharma, thus how must I
practice, respectfully the World Honored One please teach me, please thank you to the World Honored
One?

Buddha taught:
Upasaka Trien Phuong Thanh: You work as career of business sale, but you practice Purity Zen then
your work daily must be as follows:


/- Keep doing your business.
 

/- Your mind whenever also is purity, emptiness quiescence, and constant awareness.
You take the sentence that doesn’t hold on to the Selfness to be your guideline, as follow:
 

/- Another people’s job, you don’t interfere.
 

/- Don’t think your practicing dharma is the highest.
 

/- Don’t invite other people to follow practicing this Purity Zen dharma.
 

Why is this?
Because each person born to this world that he/she has his/her own totally separate karmas. However,
if whomever ask, then you speak for them to listen, but you must be prudent. If they like, you seek
method to help them, although they have different mind, then no use insisting.Upasaka Trien Phuong Thanh continued asking:
Respectfully dear the World Honored One: The clear curtain of the Ocean Tide Yin, I’m practicing
purity all the time, why couldn’t I see it, respectfully the World Honored One please teach me?
Buddha taught:
Upasaka Trien Phuong Thanh: The clear curtain, you want to see. If you have extremely large merit,
then you are easily seeing, although you don’t have merit, then it’s difficult for you to see it.
Buddha taught you: The seeing the clear curtain is not important.
 

Why is this?
Buddha give out an example as follow so you will be clear:
Currently you’re blinded, but you want to see mountain, river and lakes that how could you see it. You
must have an awareness you are blinded, currently you are diagnosted as blinded sick by a doctor. That
doctor asks you to do whatever, you are just doing, whenever you have clear-sighted, as you please to
see mountains, rivers, and lakes.
Buddha teach more for you to be clear:
When you have not entered the Central operation of the causal reincarnation, but you want to see the
clear curtain, you just start a thought of wanting, then the ignorance curtain immediately appear, how
could you see it. The practical job of a person who practice Purity Zen just have 2 true works:
 

1/- Must learn clearly this Purity Zen dharma.
 

2/- Helped many people who could be understanding thoroughly that we have merit.
When we have a large unit of merit, even you don’t want to see and have awareness of it, you are also
naturally seeing and have awareness of it.
Upasaka Trien Phuong Thanh listened until the Buddha was done teaching from his question, he was
very joyful and thanked the Buddha, and then respectfully bowed to the Buddha and then walked out

The Four Noble Truths and the Noble Eightfold Path

The Four Noble Truths and the Noble Eightfold Path are fundamental teachings in Buddhism. They are considered equally important among all the Buddhist schools and are central to the core of Buddhist beliefs. Sometimes Buddhists are criticized for always talking about suffering (because of the First Noble Truth); yet the majority of Buddhist teachers I've come across, if not all, are the most peaceful and joyous people I've ever met. So surely, there is more to Buddhism than just suffering.


In this video I explain how the Buddha taught the 4 Noble Truths to show us how we can move from a state of unrest to attaining an everlasting peace and happiness, known as nirvana or nibbana. But first, like any good physician, before prescribing the medicine, the Buddha had to diagnose our problems and show us why we feel less than one hundred percent happy most of the time, and what we can do to fix this.
