"Thank you Dharmavidya. Your sharing has provoked me these reflections...  I believe that we are fundamentally interaction, I would almost say that we are interaction rather than individuals. Life is always changing and interaction too.…"

"Thanks, Jan. Yes, I'm a bit familiar with this conflict from my visits to the island. Some things are difficult to reconcile or compromise, yet somehow we have to live with one another or we come to blows and destruction. Hawaii is certainly a…"

"I am not a psycho-therapist so cannot speak to therapeutic situations, but I was struck by the notion that: "The world will not come to peace through our discovering that we are all the same. It will, surely, only come to peace by our…"

Assumer secrètement les souffrances d'autrui

Question : Pouvez-vous en dire plus sur ce verset : "Apporter de l'aide et du bonheur à tous les autres êtres, et prendre secrètement sur moi, tout leur mal et leur souffrance. (Tiré des Huit versets de Guéshé Langri Thangpa dans le livre Nien Fo de…See More

ONENESS AND DIFFERENCE IN PSYCHOTHERAPY

SHARING: SOME INITIAL POINTSRecently I was involved in a discussion about “oneness”. Clearly, to some people in the Buddhist world, oneness is a big number. However, it is not always that clear what people mean by this idea and it may be that…See More

HOMILY TO THE DRAGONS

This morning my homily to the dragons was on kindness. After all, dragons must learn kindness too and they have their special contribution. The Dharma is not just about kind folk remaining kind nor just nice people being nice. Buddha nature will…See More

WEEP FOR OUR WORLD

Posted by David Brazier on August 20, 2019 at 21:38 2 Comments



At the moment I am feeling very sad for the state of the planet. As I write the great forests are being consumed by fire, both the tropical forest in Brazil and the tundra forest in Russia. The great forests are the lungs of the earth. I myself have lung problems. When there are parts of the lungs that don’t work anymore one can run out of energy. It can strike suddenly. We will probably not do anything serious about climate change or wildlife extinction…

MY MEDICAL CONDITION

Posted by David Brazier on June 26, 2019 at 18:04 10 Comments

My medical condition continues to be a mystery. It is clear that I do not have any of the big nasty things - brain tumour, cracked skull, stroke, etc - as these have been ruled out by MRI investigation. Nonetheless I continue to have persistent, continuous head pain that varies in intensity and I become exhausted by the least effort so that I am functioning like an invalid incapable of doing very much. There is always a possibility that the whole syndrome is a…

Grace.

Posted by Dayamay Dunsby on June 2, 2019 at 1:02 4 Comments

“Do we know what it means to be struck by grace? It does not mean that we suddenly believe that God exists, or that Jesus is the saviour, or that the Bible contains the truth. Grace strikes us when we are in great pain and restlessness. It strikes us when we walk through the dark Valley of a meaningless and empty life. It strikes us when we feel that our separation is deeper than usual, because we have violated another life, a life which we loved, or from which we were estranged. It strikes us… Continue

Sit

Posted by Geeta Chari on April 26, 2019 at 22:13 3 Comments

This is a short video of a Buddhist monk and his family. 

It raised questions on parenting and Buddhism - does detachment (or perhaps quietism), as practiced here, lead to demotivation and disengagement with the world around one?

His children find the detachment practised by the monk disquieting. They appreciate the irony of detachment, which is supposed to…
