In Chapter 7 of the Lotus Sutra titled the Magic City we have one of the major parables which is a story of travelers going to a distant place. The road is dangerous and unknown. The travelers seek out a guide who knows the way. There journey is to take 500 yojanas which is fundamentally a measure of distance which can be covered in one day, so it is ti be a 500 day journey. A lot will happen over the course of 500 days and untold distance. There will be death, birth, hunger, emergencies, repairs, some hunger perhaps. Many things will face the travelers.

Today, 26 January, 2017 I begin what may be the final phase of life, though one hopes not. Well except for those who don't like me. My work in Charlotte is finishes and it was time to make new goals. I have always wanted to live in a place with abundant snow before I die. Syracuse NY was the place I decided upon a few years ago and that is where I am headed.

My belongings were packed and loaded on a truck yesterday. Now it's me and my doggy and all that could fit in the car. We are a short distance from Charlotte and as the stress of getting the move done slowly leaves my body a pleasant tiredness has begun to settle.

I do not anticipate my journey to be 500 days, nor as dangerous, at least I hope not. Regardless I have the Buddha and the wisdom of the Dharma to guide me and inform my discernment process as I begin this phase and find my new goals.

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. Grace strikes us when we are in great pain and restlessness. It strikes us when we walk through the dark Valley of a meaningless and empty life. 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…
