Event Description

A time to let go, to offer oneself and receive peace. A sesshin is a spiritual retreat. Sesshin means searching the heart. This retreat is one of a set of five that form basic components of the Amida-shu system of spiritual preparation. Each retreat is repeated once every few years so that over a period it is possible for the practitioner to complete all five retreats. This particular sesshin is called Anshin. Anshin literally means “peaceful mind” or “heart at peace”, but is generally translated as “settled faith” because of the way the term is used in Pureland Buddhist literature. When one’s faith is settled one has a heart at peace. When one’s mind is not peaceful it is because one is confused about the fundamentals of life and so cannot give oneself to it in a wholehearted way.. In relation to Indian Buddhism, anshin corresponds to samatha, the practice of tranquil abiding. This retreat is suitable for persons at all stages of the path. There will be instruction and practice of the meditation and discussion of its place in Buddhism both formally and in daily life. There will also be times for sharing as a group and for private reflection. The retreat takes place in the suitably tranquil natural surroundings of La Ville au Roi in central France where one can commune with nature remote from the pressures of town life.

Cost: €200 full board based on 6 nights. Each extra night €25-35

Great Intentions.

  • The power of intentions is a topic that comes up regularly for me and always provides me with food for thought. In a recent service I was struck by the gravity of the Bodhisattva vows that we sing as part of our liturgy. ”Innumerable…

Study Group.

Posted by Adam Dunsby on July 18, 2017 at 22:41 1 Comment

We just had a study group meeting at Amida Mandala Temple. Only three of us but a very rich hour. Predictably we came round to the issue of ‘is one Nembutsu enough?’ My understanding: In a sense it is, because when we call Amida we become one with his vow and the Pure Land and thus we are saved. In another sense we have to keep calling him so that he can keep saving us. As if we’re all lost in a thick fog and Amida is a few steps ahead of us illuminating the way, we have to keep him in sight…
