has already written in his autobiography to "cleanse" this kind of "bad deeds".

3. The practice of Vajrayana teachings is a short cut for liberation from the cyclic existence of Samsara. Yet, if one really wants to attain enlightenment either in this body or in this lifetime, it is more easily said than done. One must try to accumulate lots of merits during one's lifetime, diligently and steadfastly practice the Holy Dharma for long periods of time, and adhere to those precepts and samayas even at the cost of one's life, then the chance to become liberated will be increased. The example of Kyabje Chadral Rinpoche is a most vivid one that anyone should follow. For one's own sake, one should discard the very "mentality of deceiving oneself and others". Only then, will one have the strong will-power and determination to diligently practice the Holy Dharma at any moment. Even though one might not be able to attain full enlightenment (Buddhahood), but at least one must strive to be liberated from this cyclic existence, otherwise it will be too late if one feels remorseful in the future!

In the biography of Jetsun Milarepa, there are a few verses which remind us of the ultimate aims of Dharma practice :-

If the lineage of my guru's teachings is impure,What benefits will I have to receive initiations from him?
If my mind cannot be merged with the Dharma,What benefits will I have to hold texts and sadhanas in my hands?

If I do not discard the worldly dharmas, What benefits will I have to do visualizations from instructions?

If my three actions cannot be merged with the Dharma, What benefits will I have to recite mantras and sadhanas?

The life story of Kyabje Chadral Rinpoche is like a mirror in reflecting and pointing out our mistakes and wrongdoings so that we can start correcting them. Furthermore, Rinpoche's words and deeds, which are so truthful, trustworthy and solid, have set an example for us in directing and guiding us onto the true Path of Liberation.

All through his life, Kyabje Chadral Rinpoche has always maintained his style of a vagabond recluse and has attained his great realizations, and has thus proven the importance of renunciation in Thervada teachings. His great compassion and wisdom in the great activities of benefiting the world has proven the essential nature of "altruistic enlightened mind" (bodhicitta) in Mahayana teachings. His skillful means in spreading the glorious and precious Holy Dharma, again, has proven the significance of skillful means on the sublime and profound path of Vajrayana teachings, the epitome of all teachings. In redirecting the misguided ship of sentient beings back to the right track, during this Degenerate Age, Kyabje Chadral Rinpoche has shown us the real paradigm of integrating the Three Yanas (of Thervada, Mahayana and Vajrayana) and their essenses in his genuine Dharma practice, thus giving us a true and clear picture of the quintessence of the Holy Dharma! We sincerely pray and hope that this wonderful life story of Kyabje Chadral Rinpoche will call upon and enlighten all sentient beings to go for the Path of Liberation and Enlightenment. Lastly, we sincerely request one hundred times that Rinpoche compassionately consider us, all pitiful beings deeply entwined with the five degenerations, that his Body of Enlightenment remain spontaneously present, and that he unceasingly turn the Wheel of the Holy Dharma!

Beautiful sunshine, like lovely breeze, shines upon shady minds,
Nectars like rivers flow to nourish all sentient beings,
Compassionate activities call upon countless burnt beings,
The appearance of the dorje and the ringing of the bell Wake up those dreamlike beings,

Dare to say : there are no better words to describe him in this world,
fully repay his kindness, and thus continues to be karmically connected,
Sincerely pray for the health and longevity of the Holy Saint!
