THE TRUTH by Master Dasira Narada



THE TRUTH by Master Dasira Narada

Only in water can a vessel move forward
A true religion can only flourish in life
When you make it a point to cultivate yourself, be courageous
And weave yourself along to ride the rough tide
Sometimes you do it in a quiet way
At other times you outshine when you try to serve
While you work for Humanity’s progress
You build peace at the same time for the world population.
You never give in to force alone
And you’re unafraid of the wicked.
With everyone, you know how to mix
So you’ll know better the true nature of people.
You persevere in observing their conditions
And draw lessons from their experiences,
Black and white both has disadvantages
You keep delving into the matter to approach the golden rule.
Life changes according to the law of ebb and flow
You should study it with good will and fairness.
Between right and wrong, you use your mind to differentiate
You know where and what are the lies
You learn from those with the same mind
But you also learn from those different from us
You don’t say this is good, or that is bad
You take into account both right and wrong.
Your power to see things through is as deep as the river and as wide as the ocean
You stand in the middle, analyze and synthesize the facts.
All kinds of people from different backgrounds and with different characteristics
People in all professions
show us the different aspects of the light that shines on
and give us a chance to find truth.
They’re all our teachers, giving free lessons to us
and thus are all our benefactors.
A self-cultivator only has friends and not foes
and actually changes foes into friends.
When you know you’re wrong, you try to correct yourself,
after many failures, you’ll find success.
When you suffer because of bad people, more people will be drawn to goodness.
In the midst of bad people, the good ones stand out.
The truths that people usually talk about
Usually are only half-truths
That either veers to this side or that,
creating all kinds of “isms”.
Those are all one-sided and full of limitations,
what everyone agrees on is the real truth.
It doesn’t know any differentiation
between the colors of the skin or various classes,
Only love for everyone on Earth
without selfishness, lust or personal gain
is the truth that is truly meaningful.
Your true identity is truly superb
you don’t act out of self-interest,
but for the benefit of all concerned.
You give general happiness to all
and you lead everyone in the same direction.
You realize that all are one
and reach the level of the sages.
A self-cultivator realizes that life is full of contradictions,
and can get over all hardships.
Life helps us get enlightened in the right way
And in return, we help life in its hazards.
Something as small as a hair’s thread
lost somewhere will be collected and returned to the owner.
When you sow seeds, don’t throw them afar,
you should sow them in a big tree’s shade
You cover small dreams in the shadow of its umbrage,
so they can avoid birds and serpents.
The big tree will cover the young ones
So they can grow and always be protected.
The duration of one’s life is very short
And it isn’t easy to be born a human,
since you are already blessed with that benevolence.
Try to be worthy of the good grace
Love the country forever with all your heart
and love humanity as you would love yourself
Try to lead humanity in the right direction.

HISTORY AND PHILOSOPHY
The Founder Grand Master DASIRA NARADA
Grand Master DASIRA NARADA was born to a highly respected family. His father, Ajita Narada, was a Sri Lankan but carried the blood of the Bombayese. He was a diplomatic official with a strict character. His mother was Ceylonese, a gentle Buddhist with the virtues of a typical Asian woman. Inheriting qualities of his parents, the Founder Grand Master had a fair complexion and a noble heart. He was the only son in his family and it was hoped that he would carry on the family tradition. Although his father wanted him to develop a career in foreign affairs, Dasira Narada did not give up his intention of searching for spiritual liberation. He enrolled in the study of Eastern philosophy at the University of Nalanda. He earned a Ph.D. degree when he was 25 years of age. The knowledge of Eastern philosophy helped him understand, deeply, the impermanence of life. His benevolence, noble aspiration, and philosophical background were the driving force, which propelled him to seek liberation for himself as well as for humankind. When he was 42 years old, his father passed away in 1888, the government of Sri Lanka invited Dasira Narada to take part in State affairs in place of his father. 

His dedication brought many satisfactory results to the Sri Lankan State Department. Because of his achievements, Dasira Narada had secured himself a bright future in the government. After five years of service for the government, suddenly, Dasira Narada resigned from his position, a position many others desired. Dressed in a discolored garment, carrying a walking stick, he quietly left on his search for spiritual cultivation. He reached the Himalayas and began his spiritual practice. After 18 years of self-cultivation, He attained illumination, opened His own chakras, and was able to absorb cosmic energy into his body. The extraordinary thing was that He also developed the teaching of Divine Dharma Meditation, which includes a unique method to initiate the chakras opening for others without requiring them to go through a long and difficult process as He had.

The Second Grand Master Narada Mahathera and 5 Masters in Vietnam After years of traveling to help people, in 1916, the Founder Grand Master found a successor who had just reached the age of 18. With great confidence, the Founder Grand Master passed on all His knowledge and hoped His successor would continue conveying His Dharma to humankind. After 8 years of teaching this disciple, in 1924, the Founder Grand Master left for an unknown place and no one ever saw him again. His successor became the Second Grand Master. The Second Grand Master was educated at a Catholic school. After he accepted the mission from the Founder Grand Master Dasira Narada, he began the practice of Theravadan Buddhism under the Buddhist name of Narada Mahathera. At the same time, he quietly practiced and maintained the teaching of Divine Dharma Meditation. The Second Grand Master had an affinity to Vietnam. During the years of 1930-1950, he visited many places in Vietnam. He represented the Indian Buddhist Society and offered the Vietnamese Buddhist Society some of the Buddha’s relics, Bodhi trees, and spiritual literature - vestiges of Buddha Sakyamuni. In 1972, the Second Grand Master visited Vietnam for the last time and he privately instructed five Vietnamese masters to protect the teaching of Divine Dharma Meditation. The five Vietnamese masters were followers of the major religions in Vietnam which included Buddhism, Christianity, Caodaism, Hoa Hao, and a female physician. In 1974, he returned to Sri Lanka. On Sunday, October 2nd of 1983, he passed away at the age of 85 in Vajirarama Temple, where he had been the leader during the last years of his life. His funeral was solemnized as a state funeral by the Sri Lankan government and Sri Lankan Buddhist Society.
3. We are Thuan Duc Nguyen and Ngoc Hai Nguyen
The Divine Dharma Meditation teaching of the Founder Grand Master Dasira Narada was protected and maintained by the second lineage Grand Master Narada Mahathera and then passed on privately to the 5 third lineage Vietnamese Masters. We, the fourth lineage generation, were delegated with the noble responsibility directly from the third lineage Masters to convey the dharma of the Founder Grand Master to the world. Since then, we have dedicated our lives to the transmission of the extraordinary philosophy of the Founder Grand Master from the spiritual realm into practical spiritual and moral guidance for the physical world; and we developed the discipline of Universal Human Body Energy. 

We have acquired considerable understanding of the fundamental principles of Hinduism, Buddhism, Christianity, Taoism, Confucianism, and Caodaism from the third lineage Masters. However, we do not formally belong to any religion nor we attach ourselves to the formality of any system of belief. This gives us the freedom to contemplate and develop an innovative method of cultivation, to guide anyone towards spiritual improvement, regardless of their culture, race, religion, or political background. Following the teaching of truth of the Founder Grand Master, we have guided practitioners to achieve a better understanding about the true nature of life on earth so that they learn to lead a virtuous lifestyle, eliminating personal selfishness and developing altruistic compassion for one another. With its versatile and universal principles of practice, the teachings of U.H.B.E. have received enthusiastic support from many people all over the world, regardless of customs or culture. 

The Founder Grand Master Dasira Narada had shown humankind a path leading to the elimination of suffering and the attainment of awakening and liberation. Based on the divine dharma of the Founder Grand Master from the spiritual realm, we have devoted our lives to develop a practical and scientific method of cultivation.
