One of the most learned and highly trained American-born lamas in the Tibetan Dzogchen tradition.
As the song goes, “Be kind to our four-legged friends,” but what about our siblings, other relatives, neighbors, friends, or mere acquaintances? Loving actions and empathic compassion are both wise and desperately needed in this violent, competitive world. It is said that in Tibet, every village, valley, and clan had its own red-and-gold robed Lama to act as priest, healer, teacher and wise man. My late friend, the lama Chakdud Tulku used to tell stories about his mother Ama-la, who was a day-lok.
One day a terrible epidemic spread among the villagers, and carried Ama-la off along with some of her neighbors.
A family lama was called to oversee her final arrangements, pray for her and strive to ensure a higher rebirth. And so Ama-la regaled them with life-valuable parables about what goes around comes around. This karmic law, what goes around comes around, can help us to understand that for every action there is a reaction. If we can dig deeply into ourselves, we will reach the water table where we are all one, all invisibly joined, the common ground. As we mature and wise-up, we can graduate to the second rule, which I lovingly call The Diamond Rule: seeing the Buddha, the divine light, the sacred in everyone and everything.
Wisdom and compassion, the Buddhist words for truth and love, are like the two wings of a great bird.
Let us think globally while acting locally, beginning with ourselves and each other, helping, connecting, wishing others well and acting on the best impulses of our better nature. Vatican's chief exorcist has claimed that practicing yoga and reading 'Harry Potter' brings evil.
Just how is it that each of us can live in such a way to contribute toward a happier, healthier, and more loving and sane home, school, community, and world?
A humble, pious, shy and quiet woman, she devoted herself daily to caring for her family and neighbors, and especially her reincarnate lama son (tulku) who was the apple of her eye. She breathed her last breath with the Dalai Lama’s mantra-prayer of compassion and loving kindness on her lips, wishing her family and friends well “Om Mani Pedme Hung!” — the jeweled spiritual light is in the lotus of each of us!
How amazed was he to find that she woke up the next morning and seemed to be alive and cured! The day-lok patiently explained to them again and again that she herself had voyaged there and had seen reality. If we can train our brains and open our hearts, we become masters rather than victims of circumstances and conditions. Then we can both learn and practice naturally The Golden Rule, treating others as we would ourselves be treated. Through this path of self-inquiry and discovery, we grow in insightful awareness, discernment, and unselfish love. As a bird cannot fly with only one wing, we need wisdom to know truth and warmhearted loving compassion to live closely together and get along in this world.
November 27, 2011 - London Vatican's chief exorcist has claimed that practicing yoga and reading 'Harry Potter' brings evil. He went to graduate school at Boston College, became a social worker, got married, raised four children, got elected to the Clinton Board of Selectmen and over the past years, has watched three wars unfold on his television screen.
Whispering the mantra ever more gently, she breathed her last and then, relaxing back into herself, with the final seed-syllable, “Hung,” she was gone.


She knew beyond a doubt that the basic fundamental and ethical teaching from Buddha concerning the law of karma, cause and effect, was undoubtedly true. Just as apple trees come from apple seeds and not from lemon seeds; our good habits and excellent character and destiny arise through repeating good, wholesome and helpful deeds, including our actions of body, speech, and mind. For it’s not what happens to us, but what we make of it that makes all the difference; this is what defines our experience, our character, and our destiny.
We reduce selfishness, and increase altruistic compassion and empathy, and positively transform our inner attitudes in order to be an edifying light and a caring steward — rather than a dark cloud and exploiter — in this, our world. The word “religion” implies uniting and bringing together, and should not become a divisive force in this world.
It’s not how large our works, accomplishments, and deeds are, or even if they are recognized, seen, and appreciated. Father Gabriel Amorth, who has carried out more than 70,000 exorcisms in the past 25 years after being appointed by the late Pope John Paul II, surprised delegates at a conference by revealing his dislike for yoga and 'Harry Potter'.
Dziokonski, who was a Navy corpsman assigned to a Marine Corps rifle company in Vietnam and a recipient of two Purple Hearts and a Bronze Star with a Combat "V," considers himself a strong man, a self-described curmudgeon.
Unlearned in books, she was skilled in the arts and crafts of traditional Tibetan home and family life.
But Ama-la was a transformed person, a day-lok, having returned from the land of the dead with tales to tell. This is why it’s important, as my own late grandmother Anne taught me, to practice what you preach, do what you say you’re going to do, keep your agreements, and walk your talk. Understanding this, our inner strength and power, helps us to train ourselves into following the good path in life and to assume the high ground. It’s how much love we put into them that makes them meaningful and even great in the long run. Give the gift of your time and good energy to someone in need, or lend an ear, a shoulder, a helping hand.
So when he found himself at the top of a mountain crying over a dead butterfly, he knew he needed help. Ama-la told whoever would listen that the obnoxious, drunken, old wife-beating Uncle Dorje’s ongoing spiritual being had become stuck beneath a rocky road and was constantly being run over by trucks, and that the spiteful, acid-tongued old Grandmother Cheutso was reborn as a spider in the gloomy, dank local police station basement. While once she had been a meek and mild-mannered woman who kept in the background as tradition required, Ama-la now spoke with great authority, in a calm and clear, Lama-like teacher-Elder voice. And we find that we do not to have to travel very far from home in order to find the holy land.
Even something as simple as being polite is connected to morality and self-discipline, steadying and easing the societal and family wheels.
There are a million-and-one ways and places to kneel and kiss the ground, not just in church. They may both seem innocuous but they both deal with magic and that leads to evil," the Daily Mail quoted him as saying. And he found relief and release in a yoga program designed specifically for war veterans called Yoga Warriors International. Moreover, she’d seen the infamous thief Puntsok reborn as a sore-covered snake, armless, legless, and slippery, being beaten with sticks by local villagers. So let’s awaken together from the sleep of separateness and illusion, and lighten up while enlightening up. Let’s learn to love and accept ourselves and each other with patience and tolerance before it’s too late to save this, our endangered planet.
This world of ours is like an altar, and all who walk on it are like gods and goddesses, Buddhas and angels.


Heaven and nirvana, happiness and well being, love and truth can be discovered in our own backyard if we dig deeply enough into our own heart and mind, and examine our body, soul and spirit to find out who we are, where we come from and how we fit in to this entire marvelous and miraculous universe. This we can see through awakening to reality, opening our wisdom eye and practicing with simple clarity these two essential teachings for the heart and mind, body and soul. Cimini, the founding director of Central Mass Yoga and Wellness in West Boylston, designed to alleviate the symptoms of combat stress or post-traumatic stress disorder.
We uncover, recover, and discover the god or goddess, the Buddha, the divinity within everyone and everything.
May these jewels, The Golden Rule and The Diamond Rule, adorn each of us and beautify the world. Speaking on the subject of People And Religion at a fringe event at the Umbria Film Festival in Terni, Father Amorth spoke of his distaste for JK Rowling's young wizard. Developing present awareness by consistently remembering to integrate mindfulness into our actions, rather than mindlessly sleepwalking through our days, helps bring us all that we want, need and aspire to, a better quality of life for ourselves and all our connections.
In Harry Potter the Devil is at work in a cunning and crafty way, he is using his extraordinary powers of magic and evil," he said.
He studies each and everyone of us and our tendencies towards good and evil and then he tempts us.
With PTSD, your emotions are ruled by what happened 20 or 30 years ago." Dziokonski originally took yoga to gain more flexibility. As he practiced yoga, the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq were unfolding a world away, but were hitting close to home for Dziokonski.
This is not the first time that the 85-year-old has raised eyebrows with his forthright views, as last year he had said that the ongoing child sex scandals rocking the Catholic Church were evidence that "the Devil was at work in the Vatican". The war was in our living room," Dziokonski said, recalling the firefights that were being broadcast on the nightly news.
In fact, Dziokonski had asked her to teach a class at the Worcester Veterans Center, which fellow veterans later decided to continue.
In addition, she is the co-author of a study that will appear in the American Journal of Occupational Therapy, "The Effects of Sensory Enhanced Hatha Yoga on Symptoms of Combat Stress in Deployed Military Personnel." The study was done by Maj.
Jon Greuel, an Air Force instructor pilot, in Kirkuk, Iraq, from November 2008 to November 2009 in collaboration with Cimini. She is also working with Worcester State University to study the effect of the Yoga Warrior program on military students at the university.
Zest Yoga and Fitness in Auburn is one of the local studios offering the Yoga Warriors class with a certified instructor. Zest Yoga and Fitness in Auburn began offering a Yoga Warriors class in September, and is open to all veterans and active-duty military personnel. Dziokonski, who regularly attends a Thursday morning Yoga Warriors session, said yoga has returned to him a sense of calm, and has improved his sleep.
Many Vietnam veterans are enrolled in Yoga Warriors, and also some World War II veterans, and now Iraq War veterans.
Dziokonski and Cimini said the emotional impact the war has on returning veterans may not become evident until months or years later.
