POST 233 01JAN2016 HAPPY NEW YEAR -THE INNER POWER MANTRA FOR BREATHING















LETTER  First December 2009
THE INNER POWER MANTRA FOR BREATHING

At our Training Sessions in PISA last October (2009) you have learned the quyen Ky-Mon. In this quyen the movement 11.a (see page 60 in the book SU-LO, KY-MON QUYEN) means: “Searching the book Bat-Nha”. The correct training of this movement requires that your legs must be crossed and the body lowered while you are taking a long and deep breathing. Advanced training could be staying in this posture up to one minute or more. This information is for the level of  Hinh and  Thuan , now how about the Y (meaning) of this movement 11.a ?

The “lyrics” of this movement said: “Searching the book Bat-Nha”.
 The book Bat-Nha is a very well known book called Prajnaparamita Heart Sutra. Don’t run right away to the bookstore close to your place for having a copy of it! “Searching” in the context of KY-MON means put all your efforts in reaching the essence, the most important part, of the teaching of the Heart Sutra. 

What is a sutra? This term is from Sanskrit: sutram. It is used in both Hinduism and Buddhism. In Hinduism, sutra is for any of various aphoristic doctrinal summaries produced for memorization, generally between 600 and 200 B.C.E.; in Buddhism, a sutra is a scriptural narrative, a text or a book, regarded as a discourse of the Buddha. The Heart Sutra is a small book consisting of only 260 words, as people traditionally counted and reported (I discovered that this counting of words was wrong, in fact the book has a number of words much less than 260, however this issue is not part of the aim of this letter). Now the challenge is finding the core, the essence of the Heart Sutra which is already a condensed version of a giant sutra called Prajnaparamita which means the perfection of wisdom. Many learned people agreed that the core teaching of the Heart Sutra is at the last paragraph of the Heart Sutra, it is a mantra, as follows: “gate gate paragate parasamgate bodhi svaha”. A mantra is a sacred verbal formula repeated in prayer, meditation, or incantation, or a syllable or portion of scripture containing mystical potentialities. This mantra is very well known and the Vietnamese pronounce it in their language as:
Yet-de yet-de bala yet-de bala tang yet-de bo-de sa-va-ha”
« Go, go, go beyond, go really beyond, reaching universal Enlightenment »

This mantra is really popular and powerful. Around the world, every day millions of people are repeating it. But for us, we should put aside the religious aspect of this mantra, and discover its profound and universal teaching. In my understanding, we could make the mantra even much shorter, it could be just a word: “GO”! This is not “go” as in “you go to the market”, it should be a great sound of “GO” which carries the power of an earthquake helping people to change and reach universal Enlightenment. That is the way I am practising this highly respected mantra. The mantra should be connected to our Breathing Methods, our practise of the Five Sounds, our dynamic Meditation, our daily training of Body and Mind. Happiness, Inner-Power, Good Health, Respect are things we should gain by our own efforts following our chosen daily training. Being a teacher is being able to discern a new way from a beaten path. Do not sit and repeat this mantra, make the mantra walk, run, chant, breathe with your everyday!

Last Saturday, 28th November 2009, solicited by the organizers of a fundraising event to support disabled people, the Viet-Chi Center in Ottawa has accepted to present two performances at the theatre of the Ottawa University. There were about eighteen groups from diverse backgrounds and countries presenting beautiful dances: modern dance, belly dance, folk dance, and VIETTAICHI. The theatre was full with three hundred people and our performances were highly appreciated and applauded. I executed the THAP BAT DIEU/ 18 Birds, and Tue-Tinh Loc Mai presented the “Yet-De” Breathing, showing the way how we train ourselves, keeping the teaching of the Mantra in mind and using two sticks to express the philosophy on duality and unity. Tue-Tinh Loc Mai has presented a wonderful performance.

I wish you and your family all the best,

HAPPINESS and GOOD HEALTH.

POST 231 19DEC2015 A TEAM-PLAYER Phan Hoang's Spontaneous Letter; TUE-TU, the Mind-Power-Brush practice

In this Post 231:
-A TEAM-PLAYER, Phan Hoang's Spontaneous Letter

-WHAT IS TUE-TU,
the Mind-Power-Brush practice? 
-SOME TUE-TU Exercises
















WHAT IS TUE-TU,
the Mind-Power-Brush practice?                                           

TUE-TU, Mind-Power-Brush, is a method of training to explore one’s Inner-Power and to promote  personal-growth and self-healing. This method uses 26 Letter-Exercises –a creation of Tue-Tu- combined with the Six-liberating-sounds and the Six-symbolic-colors. Moreover, the practice of Six-breathing-techniques and the Six-postures tremendously add effectiveness to this art of Mind-Power-Brush in helping practitioners gain greater balance and self-confidence. Although this art of Tue-Tu uses the brush and some techniques of calligraphy it is not a school of calligraphy; no Chinese characters to learn, no skill in painting art needed.

Created in the 1980’s by Dr Charles Phan Hoang, a university professor of Research Methodology and a grand-master of Vietnamese martial arts, TUE-TU (wisdom and character) is definitely a unique approach to lasting personal-growth for everyone. Its motto: BE CONFIDENT, BE HAPPY.

GREATNESS OF
A SMALL BIRD

GREATNESS OF A SMALL BIRD

Christmas is now approaching.
The last geese prepare to leave, calling their troupes going south. Other birds have already left to avoid the terrifying Canadian cold weather come. Minus 20, sometimes minus 30, or 40

This morning, in a sudden, a small beautiful bird appeared in front of my window. Smaller than a sparrow he is pale, brown-streaked, pink breast, with a bright red cap and black chin. In joy he jumped from branch to branch, forgetting to leave Canada on time. No, he will not leave, he will stay. His whole family will stay in winter here with those among the most brave, resilient, stoic birds of Canada.
When weather getting really cold he will craft a tunnel into the snow to stay warm at night. Staying inside he will patiently wait. Wait, wait, and wait for the hard time pass. Spring will surely arrive and life will restart, full of joy.
I know the name of this wonderful bird I admire: the Common Redpoll.
