SATURDAY 4 Mar ~ On my own

Started by Susthama Kim. Last reply by Emma Sneed Mar 16. 9 Replies

I am not sure if this is news or not but it feels pretty important to me so I thought I would share it here. I have travelled to Amida Mandala in Damian's little sports car all by myself and have left him (daddy-Damo) with our two small children.…Continue

I am all ready for the drive home. It has been a very pleasant experience of being on my own but knowing that I fit into a family who fits into a Buddhist family in England and that family fits into a bigger family internationally. The family…Continue

Well, I said it was going to get warmer and wetter. Right now it is blowing a gale here at La Ville au Roi and as this house is on a small hill we are getting the full force of it. During the day it has been grey yet strangely warm. I sat out in a…Continue

Started by David Brazier Feb 26. 0 Replies

Early it was one of those mornings that makes you truly glad to be alive. Calm, clear, bright with blue sky and the sound of the rooks competing with the wood pigeon. I nealy missed it because there is grey cloud edging in from the West and we can…Continue

SATURDAY 25 Feb ~ Ice & Sunny

I like to rotate the physical jobs so today it was liming walls. My technique has gradually improved and today I got quite a bit done. My son kindly bought me some extra tools for my birthday so they were in action today. Liming is rather different…Continue

MONDAY 13 Feb ~ Domestic life

Life here is pretty simple. Today, for instance, it has been mild and windy - a good drying day -  so I decided to do some clothes washing. I did two loads, coloureds and whites and got about half dry by evening. In the afternoon I made a chocolate…Continue

The love your neighbour campaign in Birmingham came about after the decision to leave the EU. There was an increase in racist attacks and the Church of England hierarchy felt they should take action. What they did was encourage schools and other community venues to put free of charge bright orange banners on fencing etc with the words love your neighbour on them. At the moment funding has been obtained to make more banners to replace any of the 1000 that have gone up already and to encourage… Continue

Once upon a time there was a traveler from the lands below.

Lived in a cottage in the mountains all alone.

The only company he had were the animals and the trees.

Though company they were none the less spoke in language only the soul hears.

Songs of days passed they sang just…


Nembutsu morning

Posted by Kaspalita on March 18, 2017 at 9:33 2 Comments

Honen encouraged his followers to set aside special times for intense practice; half a day, or a whole day, or a week. We’ll be continuously chanting nembutsu for three hours this morning.
