"Yes I see. I find it difficult to let go if the idea of self-improvement. Probably because it feels like there's so much to change in me. I suppose change, if and when it happens, would come as a by-product of deep faith. Thanks. Namo Amida Bu(…"

EEN AANTAL PUNTEN OVER ZELFKRACHT EN ANDERKRACHT...

EIGEN-KRACHT LEIDT NAAR ANDERKRACHTHet doel van zelfkracht is om zichzelf te doven. Zelfkracht Boeddhisme is een soort van uitroeiingsboeddhisme: door de kracht van het zelf, het zelf tot nul-conditie brengen. Wanneer het zelf nul is, is alles wat…See More

David Brazier replied to David Brazier's discussion SOME POINTS ABOUT SELF POWER AND OTHER POWER in the group BUDDHISM
"Yes. Even desire or effort to progress is not really needed. What is needed is faith. It is more a matter of letting go than of achieving or gaining. In the vastness of other power one simply falls without parachute."

Dayamay Dunsby replied to David Brazier's discussion SOME POINTS ABOUT SELF POWER AND OTHER POWER in the group BUDDHISM
"I believe that our compulsive and transgressive behaviours are/can be transformed by other power, Amida/Quan Yin, etc. And this is part of the transaction that occurs between us in our foolishness and calling for salvation and Amida in receiving us.…"

SOME POINTS ABOUT SELF POWER AND OTHER POWER

SELF POWER LEADS TO OTHER POWERThe objective of self power is to extinguish itself. Self power Buddhism is a kind of extinction Buddhism: by the power of the self to bring the self to a zero condition. When the self is zero, all that is not self…See More

MY MEDICAL CONDITION

Posted by David Brazier on June 26, 2019 at 18:04 6 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.

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

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…

I have recently been made aware of a practice known as Ho’ponopono. Ho’ponopono is an ancient Hawaiian healing practice, based on universal forgiveness, that was rediscovered and popularised in the 80s. A man called Joe Vitale(Hawaiian I think)  became enchanted by the practice after his daughter was healed from an…
