The extraordinary meaning of the Vesak (Mật nghĩa ngày Phật đản)

The extraordinary meaning of the Vesak (Mật nghĩa ngày Phật đản)
The extraordinary meaning of the Vesak

During the Vesak season, in any Buddhist sites, there is a familiar image of a baby, whose one hand points up to the sky and the other — down to the ground. Under his feet, lotuses bloom bearing up his heels with not only one but seven blossoms. Around him stand the imperial maids with their palms putting together in solemn reverence. Floating in midair, the gods and the fairies are celebrating his birth. That is the unique site where the Buddha was born, in a human body, at the garden of Lumbini of Kapilavastu, an ancient Indian city from 2500 years ago. That was the Buddha day of birth, and the celebration commemorating this event is called the Vesak.

“In above-the-heaven and beneath-the-heaven, the I alone is the honored one.”

That depiction of the Buddha’s birth might be visually miraculous, yet it lacks a deeper level of understanding. To further understand the event, we must uncover the layers of meaning, starting from the true value of a human being and a human life.

The true value of a human life expresses in such an extraordinary meaning that is unthinkable to non-Buddhists — the divine pride of a human. This meaning was given through a declaration by the Buddha the moment after His birth, “In above-the-heaven and beneath-the-heaven, the I alone is the honored one.” No one before the Buddha could ever convey a sager message.

Ven. Tsongkhapa

The “I” the Buddha celebrates is the self exists in every one of us; in other words, it is the self of every sentient being that carries a human mind. The I might be the self of an ordinary person; in Buddhist point of view, however, it is the vessel of the entire universe. In Tantrayana tradition, the subtle body of a human, or the self, carries all 100 wrathful and gentle Yidam deities, from which we can discover the absolute truth to liberate ourselves and others from Samsara.

This honored self is the true value of a human being that none of the others’ is comparable. In “The Sutra of Forty-two Chapters,” the Buddha taught that, among the twenty fortunate-odds, the first odd is being born as a human. In Ratnakuta Sutra, the Buddha compares the chance of having a human birth is as rare as the chance for a blind turtle, who rises to the ocean surface every one hundred years, to poke his head through a hole of a piece of driftwood.

Since obtaining this human body is difficult, the human population is minute in contrast to other beings, just like the dirt in our nails is minute in contrast to the dirt of this planet Earth. Near my house, there is an artificial river runs for about 42 meters. Dwelling in it is numerous of fishes from the bigger ones to the tinny. Meanwhile, in this Phước Thành village where I am currently living in, in an area as big as a district in HCM city, there are only 1.500 homes. Not to look any further, this observation alone has proved the Buddha’s teaching.

However, the true value of the human race does not rely solely on our small population, but rather our advantages in Buddhist cultivation, in comparison to others. Here are the reasons, as stated in Buddhist texts. Hell beings cannot be cultivated since they are constantly tortured. Hungry ghosts cannot be cultivated since they are always hungry. Animals cannot be cultivated since they are ignorance and constantly scared; asura cannot be cultivated in their anger and endless conflicts; the gods cannot be cultivated in their endless pleasure. The human race alone can practice the Dharma since we have the freedom, the intelligence, the experiences of both happiness and sufferings, and a lifespan that lasts short enough to realize the nature of impermanence, hence practice diligently to escape Samsara. In “The Basic Path to Awakening, The Complete Bodhisattva” (Bồ đề chánh đạo. Bồ tát giới luận), Ven. Tsongkhapa, the great attainer of Tibetan Tantra Buddhism has said, “human beings receive their precepts both naturally at birth and additionally as cultivators. Therefore, human beings receive more precepts than others. By keeping precepts, they become purified and quickly finish the cultivator’s path to attain the final liberation. The gods might receive ten precepts naturally at birth for their merits from their past lives, yet they cannot receive any other precept or accumulate any more merit. Not even the King of Heaven can transfer precepts. Not even the gods of Form Heavens can transfer precepts, especially cultivator’s precepts. Therefore, the gods are less likely to get an advancement in their cultivation like the human.

Thanh Tri Master – Thinley Nguyen Thanh

Human beings receive five precepts naturally at birth for the merits of their past lives. Regarding Buddhist precepts, the Buddha has taught, one may keep 10 precepts if he/she wishes for a rebirth in heaven; one may become a monk (by keeping 250 precepts for male or 350 for female) if he/she wishes to escape from Samsara; one may become a Bodhisattva if he/she vows to keep 58 (in Mahayana) or 64 (in Tantrayana) Botticita-precepts in addition. In Tantrayana tradition, we also have 24 Tantric precepts, 50 precepts of Five Great Buddhas, an more. Therefore, a human being is the vessel containing all the water of virtue to become the essence of liberation.

The more precepts one keeps, the closer he/she is to the entrance of liberation. Because Precepts generate Heightened minds, Heightened minds then generate Wisdom, and Wisdom is the vehicle to attain the final liberation. To emphasize the importance of wisdom, the Buddha has stated in “The Eight Great Causes of Enlightenment Sutra,” “TAKE SOLELY WISDOM AS CAREER.” The gods could not receive more precepts because they are hardly able to keep them. Legend has it that, in modern-day China, there were once eight dragons visiting Master Hsuan Hua. He accepted the dragon’s request to take refuge but never transfer them any precept because they will not be able to keep them. The dragons gladly returned. From this story, we realize the superiority of the Buddhist precepts system in comparison to non-Buddhist practices, not only on numbers but also in its applications to eliminate disturbances in many different aspects.

The human being is advantageous in comparison to other beings for being able to carry the precepts of a cultivator, to attain a precept-oriented body, and to enhance their virtue. For those reasons, the Buddha defines virtue as one of the seven possessions of an Enlightened being. Considering the supernatural aspect, the human’s halos, especially those of the true monks, are even brighter than the gods because of the precepts they keep. With the ability to transfer precepts, cultivators, especially those with full-precept, are revered by gods and devils. Thus, one of the Buddha’s other titles is “the Teacher of gods and men.” In the Buddha time, all of 96 non-Buddhist traditions believe that our highest attainment possible is a rebirth as the son of god, or a citizen of heaven. In Sensual heavens, every level of heaven has a King; In Form heavens, there are the Fathers and the Sons (of heaven) and the King of Heaven at Second-level meditation; only at the third-level and fourth level of meditation, the heavens become unseparated. On the other hand, as a human, the Buddha declared that, if someone practices the Dharma, he/she will become a Buddha, equivalent to Him. Thus, He said, “I am the attained Buddha; you are the Buddhas-to-be. ”

Having a human body is indeed precious as mentioned, but having a human body to follow the Buddha and believe in the Dharma is a different situation. In this context, the Buddha want to emphasize the importance of human life. Which means, as humans, we direct our energy of body, speech, and mind towards liberation. Otherwise, we are wasting this precious opportunity, like coming to a land of treasures only to return empty-handed. For this reason, it is safe to say the human body is the most precious. It is our sophisticated vehicle to attain liberation as Buddhas through cultivation. This is the extraordinary meaning of the declaration, “IN ABOVE-THE-HEAVEN AND BENEATH-THE-HEAVEN, THE I ALONE IS THE HONORED ONE.” This extraordinary meaning expresses the incomparable happiness of the divine pride, as mentioned earlier in the article.

Guru and his disciples

At this point, you might wonder, didn’t the Buddha teach His disciples to be humble? Didn’t His declaration sound too arrogant? Of course not! The Buddha only says what is the reality, points out what is the absolute truth, and expresses a sublime realization that before Him, no one dared to consider! Opposing to the ideas of non-Buddhists, who dignify and revere the gods and the asuras, the Buddha affirms that, the human race alone is worth-revering because they can become Buddhas. This is the extraordinary meaning of the divine pride, which is conveyed only during the later era of Buddhism when Tantrayana flourished. This is the characteristic of Tantrayana. In His famous work, “Introduction to Tantra, a Vision of Totality” (Mật giáo nhập môn. Quan kiến Mật giáo), Yeshe Rinpoche has emphasized that the habit of feeling unworthy for our body, speech, and mind is very harmful — it keeps us sad and depressed. To rival this tendency, we build in ourselves a divine pride, which is a Tantrayana practice during the developing stage of Yoga. At that point, we enter the experience of the divine pride, as we are manifestations of the Buddhas. Our minds will be liberated from any ordinary boundaries and elevate to a higher level of enlightenment instead. This is an argument in term of PRACTICE. In THEORY, we usually recognize those who cling to their self-practices and envy others; they appear as a disturbed, frustrated, and grumpy person. At that moment, their spiritual fields of force will project unsophisticated radiation frequencies, which attracts more bad karmas than the good ones. If they immerse themselves into the spiritual force of the divine pride, they will receive sophisticated waves of energy which can entirely transform their states of living.

Pride might be a negative characteristic of the mundane, but Tantrayana Buddhism transforms all the energy of the mind into wisdom and creates the opportunity for liberation. For that reason, there is such a divine pride as “IN ABOVE-THE-HEAVEN AND BENEATH-THE-HEAVEN, THE I ALONE IS THE HONORED ONE.”

    Dear holy Guru!

    I would like to express my gratitude for your interpretation in this article. Thanks to your instruction, i can understand more about the importance and preciousness of a human life, and it would be more precious if we can utilize this life, even the suffering, the happiness, the impermanence of life and anything around us to practice Dharma, following the Buddha’s teaching. Also, according to your interpretation, i understand that the moment, when a person take refuge in Triratna and follow to the right orbit round the correct doctrine of the Buddha, he or she can express the incomparable happiness of the divine pride as Buddha used to say: “I am the attained Buddha, you are the Buddhas-to-be”.

    Thank you to Dharma brother Mat Nhat Nguyen translated this article into English that allows more people to understand the importance and preciousness of a human life when a man or woman know how to utilize it to practice Dharma.

    May Holy Guru and his consort have a good health and live long for the sake of all sentient beings.

    May all sentient beings get the happiness of Buddha’s nature.

    Om Mani Padme Hum!

    May all beings be free from suffering and get enlightened.

    Dear Guru,

    I understood the article to be about the importance of being born a human. Also the importance of practicing the dharma in order to not waste this precious life. You also express that pride is not necessarily a bad concept for those on the path.

    I am a beginner practitioner. I have read many books and listened to many teachings. But I feel weak in my faith and practice without a teacher. Thank you for the article and the information and guidance it gave.

    Coming to awareness and understanding is indeed a true gift!  Your article helped me understand how precious life is and reinforced how important it is to work hard so we grow and learn with this special opportunity.  That’s what I gained from reading this article and it is truly a gift to have that understanding.  Also, understanding the preciousness of life in a human body  made me see the preciousness of everyone else too.  I’ve gained a deeper love and compassion for all beings as a result.  Lately, I’ve been trying to extend all my peace and mindfulness in meditation to my daily life.  This viewpoint definitely helps me in that manner.   Thank you so very much!!!

    Thank you for your wisely teaching. Im very gratefull.

  12. Dear Guru, This is a very nice artical it paints a picture to me of why we should practice being kind and that human life is precious even when we are in pain…that we have a duty to help others as well. It opens my mind to ideas that by taking care of one’s self it’s not being selfish or aggroant but it’s so we can use taking care of one’s self we can better help others
  13. Neerajkumar Sumaran says:
    Respected Dhamma Guru,

    Thank you very much for this encouraging teaching “body is our vehicle to attain liberation as Buddhas thru cultivation ”

    Not even hell, hungry ghost, animals ,asura, gods but humans can practice the Dhamma because we have freedom, experiences of both happiness & sorrow.

    Here very wisely explained the importance of keeping & cultivating precepts of the Dhamma.

    Thank you very much again the Great Guru, long live & have good health for the sake of all sentient beings .

    I wish the very happy & fruitful Vesac to you all .

    The Buddha Dhamma Sangha bless you all & Bless all beings of your province, country and world live with peace and harmony.

    I am very thankful for this article.i bow my head on your lotus feet.

    By this article I am able to know that how the human body important and precious to us.Even god does not cultivate  more precepts.we have always be to happy as we have the same body as Budha. It is very sad to say guru, most of people doesn’t know the importance of practising loving,kindness ,compassion and wisdom and busy in ego grasping attitude.They have only to show how myself is powerful than others. I know dharma practice is sometimes not easy but it is only truth.we all to think about that.I  am very much fortunate to take teachings with you.

    We all need blessings from you for being not traped in samsara to tighly.

    May guru and dakini live long for the sake of all sensient being.May guru teachings spread all over the world for peace and liberation.

    May all sensient being attain true nature.

    Dear Guru

    It was a wonderful article.Not everyone are lucky like us.For many people life on this planet is absolutely miserable.Compated to them we are really lucky.Instead of blaming for the things you do not have be grateful for the things that you have.After all our time on this earth is very small.Be happy and be the cause of happiness for others too.

    Let the Guru live long and all the sentinel beings have the peacefulness and calmness attained by Buddha.

    Reverend Gurujee

    Om Mani Padme Hum

     I bow before your lotus foot

    For very many days I was not in position to read anything or comment on the lesson even after repeated reminder of my friend. The reason is simple. After coming from my Guru’s house I fall ill, thereafter my life schedule changed because partially due to my family needs and partially due to my college/ University demand. My University appointed me an Observer of the Degree Exam in a remote college where I had to be present before 9.30 AM as Exam starts by 10 AM and answer books and questions had to be distributed before that. The job was very tough as the climatic temperature was 45 Degree Celsius. I had to be present there up to 06. 45 PM so that it is assured that the packets of written answer are sealed and sent to the collection centre. It was two sitting examination. Second sitting starts from 2 Pm. My duty was to check the unfair means in the examination too. This examination continued for 15 days. I was too tired to read and write. However, in between there were two Sundays and two holydays, that helped me to complete the write up of my memories part 3. For that I am thankful to my Guru who enabled me to complete the memories as well as the comment on the three after their publication. I am grateful to him for his boon and blessings.

           After successful completion of the examination duty I took a sigh of relief, but my problems had no end. When I went to the college after completion of the examination job in another college I was welcomed by another very important appointment letter for another non-academic assignment, which was of the patrolling magistrate in the Indian Parliamentary Election of 2019. The election is scheduled to take place on 19-05-2019. Six phages of election has completed and this is the last and the seventh one.  For that I underwent three trainings. My work is of maintaining law and order situation during the process of election. It is again tough task. I am staying at Biharsharif only because there is no smooth communication to Patna as most of the vehicles for transport; both privet and Govt. have been pulled out and ceased by the local administration for election purposes. I felt it boon in disguise as it provided ample time to read and write.

            After coming back from my evening walk I read the article twice. It is really a wonderful article from human motivation point of view as it reveals the hidden truth that how human beings are important and unique in this universe. On Vesakh Day the Light of the Universe the Buddha was born. The legend says that immediately after his birth He took a few steps on the earth standing erect and raising his one hand towards the sky. His steps were not on the ground rather the lotus bloomed out where ever He put his steps. It bears a great significance and hidden meaning for we mortals. The first that the day is very important as Buddha has incarnated himself for the welfare and happiness of many as we all are suffering due to our ignorance based activity and taking birth again and again and suffer. The Vesakh day indicate that Buddha was honoured by gods and goddesses as he came on this planet earth to train us the on the path leading to cessations of suffering. Secondly, our holy Guru also hinged on the fact that uniqueness of man lies in the fact that it is man and man only who can be liberated through the precepts and wisdom. There no other species including Gods and demon have the capacity to observe the entire precepts. This has been demonstrated by our Guru in a detailed descriptive manner. I do not want to repeat them. And this is the reason the Buddha has incarnated in human form. The reason is simple, though man is the son of the soil but the hair of Divine. Each and every human being is a potential Buddha (Bodhisatva). It is a fact that the Buddha is the teacher of both, gods and men, but it is the human beings only who can be liberated, by his own efforts, from the earthly bonds of suffering. And thus he is superior even to the gods. This is how the human dignity has been established by the Buddha.   

      Om Mani Padme Hum

    May our Guru live long along with his consort happy and healthy for the benefit of many and the happiness of many of his disciples and other sentient beings.

    With regard and reverence

    Dear Guru,

    My name is Tantra Sagovana.

    Thank you for sharing this article.

    In this article you explain the significance and the rarity of having a human life, that a human life is the vehicle to attain liberation as we can receive and keep more precepts than any other being.

    That Lord Buddha explained that the human being alone is worth revering as opposed to devas and asuras as humans alone can attain Buddhahood.

    Having a human life is precious and that also as we have encountered the Dharma in our life we must practice diligently and keep our actions of body, speech and mind on right track so that we can attain liberation.

    May all sentient beings be free from suffering and get enlightened.

    Con là Tantra Sagovana.

    Con cảm tạ ơn Thầy đã cho con được đọc bài viết này.

    Trong bài viết,  Thầy luận giảng tầm quan trọng và sự quý hiếm của thân người,  và thân người là phương tiện để đạt giác ngộ tối thượng vì chúng con có cơ hội được truyền giới và giữ được giới trong khi chúng sanh ở cõi khác thì khó có cơ hội này.

    Đức Phật cũng chỉ dạy rằng kiếp người quý báu hơn chúng sanh ở cõi trời,  cõi thần vì con người có khả năng đạt được giác ngộ.

    Có được thân người là điều quý hiếm và quý hiếm hơn khi chúng con gặp được Phật pháp trong kiếp này, vì vậy chúng con cần tinh tấn hành pháp và điều chỉnh hành vi thân ngữ tâm theo đúng quỹ đạo chánh pháp để chúng con có thể đạt được giải thoát tối thượng.

    Cầu nguyện tất cả chúng sanh đoạn trừ khổ đau và đạt được giác ngộ.
