How do we break away from our own mental habits which cloud our mind and propel us to act negatively? To liberate ourself and others from suffering by cultivating compassion and recognizing our innate uncontrived wisdom is the Buddhist path. Buddha is NOT a god but a reflection of our own natural perfection beyond birth and death. Furthermore, many people have mistaken the Buddha's wisdom of "emptiness" for nihilism. Emptiness does NOT mean nothingness or any negation but rather it implies a clear awareness free from all mental constructs. More than 2500 years ago, Buddha Shakyamuni, the fourth historical Buddha, realized complete liberation from the suffering of cyclic existence and manifested 84000 teachingsDharma Wheelfrom his spontaneous enlightened wisdom to help beings of various dispositions and backgrounds. His lineagesMalaof oral transmissions have been kept unbroken to the present days by the kind Tibetan Buddhist teachers.Buddha statue

Wu Tai Mountain Sino-Tibetan Buddhist Study Group recognizes a lack of authentic Tibetan material written in Chinese on the subject and publishes a free bi-monthly newsletter collecting Chinese translations of the teachings taught by the great Tibetan lamas. This web page is dedicated to make the newsletter Ocean of Merit even more accessible. Although mere intellectual studies bring about relatively little benefits, it is nevertheless a starting point. One should search patiently and carefully for an authentic teacher with an unbroken lineage and selfless qualities who can remove all doubts from one's mind stream and give guidance on the path.

Chogyur Dechen Lingpa (1829-70), the great treasure finder, received the
prophecy of Karmapa's future incarnations from a vision of Guru Rinpoche
surrounded by twenty-one incarnations of Karmapa. The following concerns
H.H. the 17th Gyalwa Karmapa Orgyen Trinley Dorje:
Nearby, at the foot of a lush tree on a rock mountain,
is the seventeeth incarnation together with
Khentin Tai Situpa. This image symbolizes that, through
the unity of their minds, the tree of the Buddha's
doctrine will flourish, laden with the ripe fruit which
is the essence of the teachings of lineage of Gampopa.

May all sentient beings have happiness and the causes of happiness.
