Mindful Training
༈ གླང་རེ་ཐང་པ་རྡོ་རྗེ་སེང་གེས་མཛད་པའི་བློ་སྦྱོང་ཚིག་བརྒྱད་མ་བཞུགས་སོ།
Eight Verses for Mind-Training Composed by Geshe Langri Thangpa Dorjee Singghe (1054-1123).
Audio: H.H. the Dalai Lama
1 སེམས་བསྐྱེད།
༈ བདག་ནི་སེམས་ཅན་ཐམས་ཅད་ལ།
ཡིད་བཞིན་ནོར་བུ་ལས་ལྷག་པའི།
དོན་མཆོག་སྒྲུབ་པའི་བསམ་པ་ཡི།
རྟག་ཏུ་གཅེས་པར་འཛིན་པར་ཤོག
May I consider sentient beings,
dearer than the Wish-Fulfilling Gem.
Best wishes in mind,
Forever hold them dear.

2 སྙིང་རྗེ།
གང་དུ་སུ་དང་འགྲོགས་པའི་ཚེ།
བདག་ཉིད་ཀུན་ལས་དམན་བསྟ་ཞིང༌།
གཞན་ལ་བསམ་པ་ཐག་པ་ཡིས།
མཆོག་ཏུ་གཅེས་པར་འཛིན་པར་ཤོག
Whenever whoever I am with
May I see myself least important.
And sincerely others in mind,
Hold them dearly highest.

3 བསམ་གཏན།
སྤྱོད་ལམ་ཀུན་ཏུ་རང་རྒྱུད་ལ།
རྟོག་ཅིང་ཉོན་མོངས་སྐྱེས་མ་ཐག།
བདག་གཞན་མ་རུངས་བྱེད་པས་ན།
བཙན་ཐབས་གདོང་ནས་བཟློག་པར་ཤོག
Always observe my behaviour.
Negative thoughts may arise,
[and]Hurt myself and others.
Confront and suppress it with force.

4 བཟོད་པ།
རང་བཞིན་ངན་པའི་སེམས་ཅན་ནི།
སྡིག་སྡུག་དྲག་པོས་ནོན་མཐོང་ཚེ།
རིན་ཆེན་གཏེར་དང་འཕྲད་པ་བཞིན།
རྙེད་པར་དཀའ་བའི་གཅེས་འཛིན་ཤོག
For unpleasant sentient being is,
Overwhelmed by bad-karma and suffering.
When stumble upon rare treasure,
Cherish and empathise.

5 སྦྱིན་པ།
བདག་ལ་གཞན་གྱིས་ཕྲག་དོག་གིས།
གཤེ་སྐུར་ལ་སོགས་མི་རིགས་པའི།
གྱོང་ཁ་རང་གིས་ལེན་པ་དང༌།
རྒྱལ་ཁ་གཞན་ལ་འབུལ་བར་ཤོག
Out of envy others may,
Insult, abuse and treat me unjustly.
May I accept [freewill] defeat and loss,
And offer victory to them.

6 ཤེས་རབ།
གང་ལ་བདག་གིས་ཕན་བཏགས་པའི།
རེ་བ་ཆེ་བ་གང་ཞིག་གིས།
ཤིན་ཏུ་མི་རིགས་གནོད་བྱེད་ནའང།
བཤེས་གཉེན་དམ་པར་བལྟ་བར་ཤོག
Whom I have helped,
With great expectation.
Did immense harm and unjust in return.
May I see him as my true teacher.

7 ཚུལ་ཁྲིམས།
མདོར་ན་དངོས་དང་བརྒྱུད་པ་ཡིས།
ཕན་བདེ་མ་རྣམས་ཀུན་ལ་འབུལ།
མ་ཡི་གནོད་དང་སྡུག་བསྔལ་ཀུན།
གསང་བས་གདག་ལ་ལེན་པར་ཤོག
In essence, directly or indirectly,
Offer total wellness to mothers.
Suffering and pain of mothers,
Inconspicuously take upon myself.

8 བརྩོན་འགྲུས།
དེ་དག་ཀུན་ཀྱང་ཆོས་བརྒྱད་ཀྱི།
རྟོག་པའི་དྲི་མས་མ་སྦགས་ཤིང༌།
ཆོས་ཀུན་སྒྱུ་མར་ཤེས་པའི་བློས།
ཞེན་པའི་འཆིང་བ་ལས་གྲོལ་ཤོག
All above be free from
eight compromises of Acquired Concept.
Recognizing all phenomena is illusory,
May I be free from bondage of disgusting Attachment.
*mother: sentient beings
Transliteration: karma


Tibetan National Fund

Philosophy:
Tibetan National Fund (Bod Mie Ma Ngul) is established to make fund available for Tibetans.

The fund shall be the property of Tibetan people as a whole.

Every Tibetan shall make efforts to contribute to TNF-BMMN fund. Every Tibetan home throughout the
world will have a contribution box .

Tibetan Congress Members:

TC member includes representatives from geographical(Zone), social and economic backgrounds.

Objectives:
TNF-BMMN will aim to resettle Tibetans throughout the world. This is the principal task besides old-age pension
and childcare benefits to all the Tibetans.

Scope:
Tibetan-Government-in-Exile(TGE) may or may not sustain due to following scenarios:
a) TGE maintains the status-quo.
b) TGE becomes casualties of political or social change.
c) Tibet becomes part of Communist China.
d) Tibet becomes part of Democratic China.
e) Tibet becomes FREE.


Scenario A:
TGE maintains the status quo. TGE remains as it is today. TNF-BMMN can become extra source of revenue for the Tibetans and give more flexibility as TGE funds are target or project-oriented and is not sufficient to deal with non plan spending.

Scenario B:
TGE becomes casualties of political or social changes. For instance, Nepal shuts down representative office and MajnuTilak incident uproots Tibetans. Dharamsala is not far behind in ugly flare-ups. These are real and hurt real people-Tibetans. Our feature is precarious, if past is any reference.

Solution lies in resettlement projects with meaningful status-“Bodh rewae Phung” . We cannot resettle Tibetans every Friday. It has to be a step in the right direction, slow it may be. TNF-BMMN may be our only hope than.

Note: India, Nepal, Bhutan are not signatories to UN refugee Convention of 1951 and 1967 and thus they do not accept refugees and thus given no rights of the land. They let-in alien on their own terms bound by none. Tibetans are guest of India and thus there is no legal status. These and other issues are discussed somewhere else.

Scenario C:
Tibet becomes part of China and China is still a communist state. Since Tibetans do not speak or understand Chinese language, Tibetans are at disadvantage. Chinese language is not our mother tongue and we have to learn it with extra effort and time. This is a naked reality. Tibetans need assistance and TNF-BMMN can come in handy without arising any political suspicion from Communist Government.

Scenario D:
Tibet is part of China and China is a Democracy. Since Tibetans are minority, Tibetans will fail at any number-game such as ballot box, funding and budget allocations. In Democracy number rules. Language will remain a problematic issue and economics of Tibetans will be marginalized. TNF-BMMN may be the only supplementary source of income for the Tibetans.

Scenario E:
Tibet gains complete independence and is FREE. This is the best news of all the news for any Tibetan. However, our economic struggle begins. Sustainable Tibet is our goal. Until we achieve economic “take off” Tibet needs economic support. TNF-BMMN is there to give a helping hand.

Resettlement:
Long term settlement without fear for ever being evicted must be our foundation of resettlement
strategy and it may include buying land wherever it is available.

Pension Fund:
Every Tibetan above 65(arbitrary number) of age will receive pension.

Childcare Support:
Every Tibetan child will receive Childcare Support.

Projects:
Plant a tree in Tibet
Old-age Pension Plan
Childcare assistance

Members:
President
Zonal president
Tibetan-Government-in-Exile Relations
Tibet Relations
Treasurer
Audit

Contribution through
Bank
Internet

Pledge:
Every month’s penny collection will go to TNF-BMMN and save a Tibetan.

Inspiration:
Jewish people established such a fund in 1901 and build what is Israel today from scratch.
