Here is the practice translated in English : Practising in face of horror

Comment by Elja Stoel on December 5, 2015 at 18:01

Wish your Tonglen practice is in English.... sounds as a very good practice in these circumstances... 

Comment by Cédric Lémery on December 5, 2015 at 17:53

Hello Elja, yes, it's nice to stay in touch. I just posted some informations about our activities.

Also, as Wangmo is currently animating a session about Sangye Menla (the medecine Buddha), here in Saint-Martin, we had a lot of discussion about the recent event in France. Therefore I have put a link to a practice Wangmo wrote during Charlie's event. It's a Tonglen practice ajusted to the current period to help people.

Hello Cedric, nice to see you here too! I hope you will share some of your activities of Racines de La Presence in this group. Nice to stay in touch this way and follow each other and I hope also inspire and stimulate each other!

The more input you get from the teacher and the phenomenal world and the more you develop, at the same time, the more you question. So there is a kind of dance taking place between the teacher and yourself. You are not particularly trying to switch off…

Reflections on Foolishness.

Posted by Adam Dunsby on September 5, 2017 at 11:50 2 Comments

I sometimes can’t believe how defective I am!! Whilst despairing of myself the other day I remembered a Shinran teaching that I found some time ago. It really made me think and reinforced my resolve to practice.

It is a Pureland teaching about the depth of our sin preventing us from being genuinely good. Our efforts to be decent, caring beings are always based in and therefore contaminated by our self centredness, greed hatred and delusion. This is due to the…

Great Intentions.

Posted by Adam Dunsby on August 3, 2017 at 22:42 0 Comments

  • 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…
