Follow H.E. the 25th Tsem Rinpoche's tweets at twitter.com/tsemtulku ★All living beings will go through the stages of #birth, #sickness, #aging and #death. After death they enter the intermediate state or #bardo. After each 7 days, bardo beings attempt to take #rebirth. If unsuccessful, bardo beings try again on every 7th day. Within 49 days the bardo being will take rebirth as determined by the forces of #karma. If after 49 days, due to their strong #attachment to #samsara, these bardo beings may end up as wandering #spirits. If a living being had committed #heinous actions e.g. #killing his own #parents, there is no intermediate state for him. Upon death, he will take immediate rebirth in the #Avichi #Hell - the worst realm of #existence in #samsara where he will experience terrible #suffering. ★The Dying Process

Part 2 of 2 ★Total Separation …

Well, today will be a temporary final farewell to a being I love very much and will remember till I am no more in this life. Hoping to meet this being in the immediate next life again where hopefully this being will find the way back to me through all the obstacles before I pass away and hopefully as a human this time around. The chances are slim, but I have to hope. Hope is so trivial and unsure, but grasping at water to hold it is all there is in life. Surprisingly this hope offers no comfort for those who know better and what is beyond and the workings of taking rebirths. What it offers I am not sure but we'll just have to hope. After all we have met so many wonderful beings we might have been connected with from a previous life in this life, but we wouldn't know or remember from which life we knew them. We just feel connected and are together for the time being again till we separate again. I guess loss of memory between lives can be seen either as cruel or a saving grace. Whatever it is, in samsara, friends, loved ones, existence and our lives are not what it seems. It is really illusions we live in and I conclude practicing dharma all the way and deeply to gain an exit out of this situation is the best solution. It's not religious to say that but practical and reality. You can't change the unchanging but we can get out of it. While we have dharma and the chance of real hope, we should not lose it or procrastinate. Nothing in life is permanent and all ends in memories until we ourselves soon end. Just think, everything we love will be gone. Not to sound negative but truthful. It will all be gone no matter how much we are in need of it or love them. No matter how much we grasp on to them. Realize this wisdom and at least know there is a cure if we are not cured yet. But I do have to make my temporary farewell today to a being I love so much and will continue to hope the next incarnation of this being will continue to benefit others and more.
Much love, Tsem Rinpoche

Part 1 of 2 ★Total Separation

Temporary final #farewells are difficult. #Temporary means we might meet in a #future life knowingly or unknowingly again but chances are slim. There is a chance we might not meet in the future even if we had a powerfully close #connection in this life because nothing is for sure and all we can think are positive thoughts, but thoughts that are positive will not ensure meeting again. So there is no real comfort, just temporary comforts. 'Final' in this case would be for now we cannot meet again because a current life has ended and we need to wait for that beloved being's reincarnation to be in another body, find their way back, have the #karma to be connected open, remember us and that's if we meet again. The odds are stacked against us always. We will miss that being tremendously and the memories come flooding back and all we can hope for is we meet again. Hope is not always enough and not a guarantee we will connect soon again but it's all we have. As flimsy and unreliable as it is, it's all we have.
#Life is terrible that, it all leads to just memories in the end and the end is so fast. Eventually the #memories fade or just black out as we ourselves must pass away too. In the end we are left in the infinite constant nothingness. Like going into a dreamless dark sleep and never waking up again or entering into a never-ending black hole in space. Whatever it is, it is. It is that way. The only hope we have is the trust in #reincarnation and #meeting again which will lead to the same thing again and again and again. Same thing again as in meeting, becoming #friends, care and the #separation again. #samsara gives no breaks.

The #universe is part of #samsara. There are so many #world #systems and #sentient #beings #living in samsara. We are so #tiny in the entire universe. How #insignificant we are compared to the whole universe!
All sentient beings are going through different #types and #degrees of #suffering. We shouldn't be so #selfish and merely #focus on our own #problems, #difficulties, #obstacles, #misfortunes and sufferings.
Every sentient being ( including us ) living in samsara are suffering. We must strive to free ourselves from suffering by #renunciating samsara and once we are free from samsara, we must help all sentient beings to free themselves from samsara.
