Anyone read Tibetan?

Postby Indrajala » Thu Mar 18, 2010 10:47 am

I was going through my photos from January and realized I don't know what these images and texts mean. The Imperial Palace museum in Taipei has Tibetan artefacts on display. The ol' Chinese Emperors had an interest in Tibetan Buddhism.

Pretty neat stuff. :smile: But what does it all mean? :shrug:

3th picture: Namo Buddha Ya, Namo Dharma Ya, Namo Sangha Ya.
For the Triratna (Kunchog Sum) I bow down.

4th picture is about: Buddha's very much detailed elaborated great sutra (mDo Phalpo Che: Avatamsaka), first section. The Victorious ten disciples together as for the Bodhisattvas.
‘View like the sky’ means that nothing is held onto in any way whatsoever. You are not stuck anywhere at all. In other words, there is no discrimination as to what to accept and what to reject; no line is drawn separating one thing from another. ‘Conduct as fine as barley flour’ means that there is good and evil, and one needs to differentiate between the two. Give up negative deeds; practice the Dharma. In your behaviour, in your conduct, it is necessary to accept and reject.” Guru Rinpoche
