Writing is important because we can communicate with others when they're not where you are or at a different time than you are. I can read a book, a newspaper, or even a personal letter written two or three hundred years ago. People, ten thousand miles away from me right now must be reading the very article I'm writing. A hundred years from now, someone would be reading something that you or I write today. So keep writing to let the world hear what you have to say...

Dissemination of Lamdre (lam‘bras) Teaching of Sakya Tradition in Tibet.
Tradition is one of the four major schools of Tibetan Buddhism founded by Khon
Konchok Gyalpo in the eleventh century AD and propagated by the five founding
masters of the Sakya tradition popularly known as "gong ma lnga".
Through the efforts of these masters, the great deal of Sutras and Tantric
teachings of Indian Buddhism were assimilated into the spiritual life of
Tibetan masters. One of the most famous teachings among these is Hevajra
Tantra, whose transmission originated with the Indian Mahasiddha Virupa and
had been brought to Tibet by the Yogin Gayadhara, the techer of Drogmi Lotsawa,
who then passed the transmission to Sachen Kunga Nyingpo (1092-1158, one of the
five founding masters of Sakya tradition). The lineage has been successfully preserved
to this day by many masters of the Sakya tradition.
and unique teaching of Sakya school is known as Lamdre (the Path and its Fruit) which is rooted in Hevajra
Tantra.The origins of the Lamdre
lineage are traced in the Indian Tantric Yogin Virupa. The Lamdre
lineage was introduced to Tibet by the Tibetan translator Drokmi lotsava, who
imparted the transmission to the great Sakya master Kunga Nyingpo. The
philosophical view of "Ultimate Reality" as expounded in the Sakya
school is the view of "Non-apprehension of Luminosity and Emptiness (gsal
stong 'dzin med) or "Inseparability of Samsara and Nirvana is the view of
the Lamdre teaching and this technical
term is exclusively employed in the Sakya school of Tibetan Buddhism. Lamdre
is highly regard as one of the most important and precious literatures of Sakya
tradition which generally deals with the esoteric teachings of Mahanuttara-yoga-tantra
and Hevajra Tantra.

This is my first paper presentation during Buddhist Seminar at Visva-Bharati University, Indo-Tibetan Department.
Life isn't all about eating and sleeping. I think I am quite okay compare to other people but yes I have been running through difficulties like others at some point of my life. I wonder if one can do what others are doing too but not many of us are able to. Today I worked as lecturer and my job is to teach but then it is different for the others.
For some life is traveling around world and visiting places they like and explore. For some it is begging everyday and earn to eat one time food. For some it is wrestling, boxing, body building and want to gain name and fame. For some becoming leader and politician working for the country. For some it is all about praying, meditating and working for the others good. For some it is all about business making money. For some looking for a girl friend and boy friend to date and enjoy. Some landing on the moon and mars finding what is there.
to be continued and writing after long time. please follow me as I am back.
