Winner of “Why KF is Important” Essay Contest

May 13th, 2014

In the December 2013 Khyentse Foundation thank you letter to donors, Rinpoche explained why KF is important to him. In turn, we asked our readers to tell us why KF is important to them and offered a special gift to the person who wrote the most moving response. We received  many responses, all so inspiring, but the one submitted by Deng Ming of mainland China really stood out. We will send Deng Ming a framed, high-quality print of Jamyang Khyentse Wangpo’s thangka.

Many thanks to everyone who spent time contemplating the importance of supporting Buddhist patronage in the 21st century.

Here is Den Ming’s winning entry:

 

Why Is KF Important to Me?

photo-3分享:
吉祥善妙的緣起。
意義深遠的結緣。
個人的壇城融入傳承的壇城。
KF是踐行佛陀事業的平臺,無上的福田。
承事文殊、承事上師、承事傳承。

With auspicious and wonderful dependent arising,
Meaningful and deeply ingrained karmic connection,
For the personal mandala to merge with the lineage mandala,
KF is a platform to actualize Buddha activities, an unsurpassed fields of merit
In service of Manjushri,
In service of the Guru,
In service of the Lineage.

上師佛行事業的廣大興盛、傳承法脈得以延續並持續利益後世之人需要眾多功德主及弟子的實修和護持,KF給予我們一個簡單便捷的機會,種了很多大項目的福田、一般沒有機會瞭解到的福田。
It takes patronage and actual practice,
To support the Guru’s vast Buddha activities,
To continue the lineage and
To benefit future generations.
KF allows us to cultivate, with simplicity and efficiency,
An amazing field of merit with various big projects
Incomprehensible to others.

就如透過一台電腦就能鏈結互聯網看到世界般,小溪得以有機會匯入大海。

Just like internet connection through one computer
Allows us to view the whole world,
Drops of water in a mountain stream
Are able to merge with the ocean.
資訊透明公開迅速,用商業專案管理的手法運營,讓大家生歡喜心,且感覺正規安全。最重要的是,感受到KF越來越強大,越做越好,越發圓滿。

An operation with transparency, immediacy, and
Professional project management,
KF’s legitimacy enhances joy and confidence.
Most importantly KF is growing stronger, doing better, approaching perfection.

與時俱進,隨喜方式簡單,網上支付方便

Catching up with the modern times
It is easy for others to share the merit
Using convenient online donation.

期盼之前生日贈禮的email發送方式能再次安排,此舉能讓對佛法不瞭解的朋友們有一個合適的機會瞭解更多,通常收到這種特別的生日祝福會很感恩。

Allowing those not understanding dharma
An opportunity to understand the dharma more.

May all be auspicious!
DENG MING
CHINA
