Event Description

Day meeting in Northern Spain with David Brazier

The word Dharma signifies reality. Yet the reality pointed out by sages is not the hard “realities” of materialism. It is the dynamic flow of love, compassion, joy and peace that animates, heals, restores, and inspires; that goes beyond conventional appearances. It is an other power, power of love, that is the real driving force of life. In our Dharma practice we meet and share, celebrate and practise. The great Zen master Dogen indicated four characteristics of Dharma: tenderness, good will, generosity and compassion. In this Day of Dharma we shall reflect upon these qualities and invoke them to enrich our lives together.

For fifteen years the writer Varlam Shalamov was imprisoned in the Gulag for participating in “counter-revolutionary Trotskyist activities.” He endured six of those years enslaved in the gold mines of Kolyma, one of the coldest and most hostile places on earth. While he was awaiting sentencing, one of his short stories was…

The Buddha, Season 1, Episode 1

Posted by Geeta Chari on June 29, 2018 at 9:21 1 Comment

I have been watching The Buddha on Netflix, and although I came well-prepared to scoff, there is a surprising amount of food for thought from a Pureland perspective. What follows is a review of the Pureland touches in the episode, coloured inevitably by my upbringing in India, although I have now lived in Britain for more than half my life.

The scene opens in the republic of Kapilavastu, depicted as a green and pleasant land, with the Himalayan mountains as a backdrop. (I was…

Nembutsu Question

Posted by Dayamay Dunsby on April 20, 2018 at 8:22 1 Comment

I found this in a book that I'm reading. It has challenged my current "understanding" of the Nembutsu. I tend to think of the name itself as salvation and the bridge to the Pure Land...

"...Nembutsu is not a means to gain salvation but a reflection of it. Shinran acknowledges there is nembutsu without true entrusting because he lived in an environment where nembutsu was recited for benefits and merit. By itself it cannot produce true entrusting. Nevertheless, they are inseparable as…
