Cultivation of Rice Fields

From 29th of May 2010, Shar Gaden has started cultivating 20 acres of rice fields which were allotted to us during controversial partition in March 2008. In 1960s, Indian government allocated lands properties to every individual of Buzar monks one acre per a monk purposely for farming, so Gaden Shartse had nearly 90 members at the time. Later the allocation of properties including the land were based on quantity of Buzar members.

Even though we have established separate monastery, our manner of conducting puja, sustaining monastic systems and rules and regulations have been remained as same as we used to have to in Gaden Shartse which were assembled by Previous Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche and Kyabje Song Rinpoche.

This unfolding information of activities related to farming has been important since some certain group of people making baseless allegation that Lord Dorje Shugden practitioners especially monasteries are receiving enormous financial patronage from Chinese Administration for many years, as everyone knows that the main source of economy growth of the monasteries in South India are generosity of their benefactors, monks tour program in abroad and profit of selling crops to local distributors etc neither we are involved as mentioned nor other monasteries.

Once Gelong Lepe Karma said "I have been with Gautam Buddha and had examined him for 12 years, and I have not seen a tiny thing in the name of wisdom in him" Maybe this quote will suit very well with these people who are in reality not blind but pretending being blind. Who are getting what and who are involved is concise and most noticeable only if your mind is not partially preconditioned !

In these photos, monks are willingly working co-operatively with the hired Indian villagers in the fields despite of scorching weather 36 D 'c (fahrenheit)

    Serenity and generosity are qualities of the heart. Insight and Concentration are qualities of the mind. Compassion and wisdom are qualities of the ture nature. ~ Heart of A Buddha
    There are three ways to correct our faults: We can change through behavior. We can change through understanding. We can change from the heart. ~ Heart of A Buddha
    The thought manifests as the word. The word manifests as the deed. The deed develops into habit. And the habit hardens into character. So watch the thought and its ways with care. And let it spring from love, born out of concern for all beings. ~Buddha
    What I know is like the leaves on that tree; what I teach is only a small part. But I offer it to all with an open hand. What do I not teach? Whatever is fascinating to discuss, divides people against each other, but has no bearing on putting an end to sorrow. What do I teach? Only what is necessary to take you to the other shore. ~The Buddha
    "Reverence, humility, contentment, gratitude, and the timely hearing of the Dhamma, the teaching of the Buddha — this is the highest blessing. ~Buddha
    If the causes we create arise from wisdom, so then will the results. If the causes we create arise from ignorance, so then will the results. -Heart of A Buddha
    "victory breeds hatred. The defeated live in pain. Happily the peaceful live, giving up victory and defeat." ~The Buddha
    Happiness and tranquility arise from concentration. Frustration and worries arise from desire. -Heart of A Buddha
    When threatened with danger, men go to many a refuge, - to mountains and forests, to parks and gardens, and to sacred trees. But such a refuge is not a safe refuge, not the best refuge. One is not liberated from all evil consequences of existence (dukkha) for having come to such a refuge. ~Dhammapada
