"It would be interesting if the US printed off the trillion plus dollars it owes China and delivered it to the Chinese embassy; paid in full. Maybe it hasn't popped into Donald's mind yet."

FAITH IN THE DOLLAR

Much of the world's trade is conducted in dollars. This fact is broadly connected with the idea that the USA is not a nation like other nations, but is somehow above the fray. It acts as world policeman and world banker. This is basically a result of the settlement that ended WWII. There are some signs that these arrangements are gradually coming undone.The advent of a US president who believes in "economic nationalism" suggests that the cost of being exceptional is becoming too much for the US…See More

REMEMBERING SAIKO SENSEI

Posted on March 19, 2018 at 21:43 1 Comment

Today is the fourteenth anniversary of the death of Gisho Saiko. Sensei Saiko was the founder of Shinshu Counselling. He wrote a number of books and presented his ideas at international conferences as well as through his university and Buddhist organisations in Japan. He referred to my work in his books and when I visited Japan a few months before his death, he took on to invite me to a number of gatherings and hosted my wife and I in royal fashion. He was enthusiastic that I should play a…

Ritorno all'Eden ~ Back to Eden (Italiano & English)

Posted on March 4, 2018 at 15:00 3 Comments

Ero alzato di pronto. Andavo a piedi i tre isolati fino al garage, pausando per strada, per un caffè e brioche alla "bar degli artisti". Guidavo la macchina a casa e ho trovato un parking in centro di Via Abbruzzi. Ho tornato a casa e mi ho fatto una colazione e completato il mio pacco. Ho detto arrivederci alla padrona di casa e me ne sono andato. Sono andato da Milano alle otto. Era zero gradi. Guidavo al sud ovest verso Genova tra campi da neve: panorama bellissima. Mi sentava…

LEAVING SCHOOL AGAIN

Posted on February 28, 2018 at 18:00 4 Comments

I am now near to the end of my stay in Italy. I have achieved my basic objectives of delivering some teaching and of learning basic Italian. I've also spent some good times with friends here of long standing and made some new ones. While here I attended language school and right now I feel like a schoolboy anticipating the end of term

It has been an interesting adventure internally. Not so much externally, as I have not ventured far nor done anything extraordinary. Weekdays I have…

Hi David. Good to see you in Malvern! You left a snowy wonderland indeed! Your relationship courses in Milan look interesting! I think the UK would be an excellent venue if you offer these again ;) NAB

"Everyday has been a miracle for all of us in the 2017 Korean Workshop."

This is a special time for all of us: The participants' level of aspiration to learn and practice as they learn from you is higher than previous years; and your teaching is profound and I feel like we are a chosen few who are blessed. I can not think of any other better cultivation of mind and Buddhist training.

Thank you very much and enjoy being in Korea this summer.

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…

Shinran and Ippen

Posted by Dayamay Dunsby on April 16, 2018 at 8:00 0 Comments

On Saturday evening our regular study group met on Skype where we looked at and discussed material from "No Abode", a beautiful book about the life of Ippen, ancient Japanese Purland master and "The Essential Shinran" which documents the life of Shinran Shonin, one of Honen's most famous disciples. We had a very stimulating discussion which I enjoyed greatly. We will be meeting again on Saturday 19th May at 9pm British time. Please feel free to contact me if you would like to join us.…

Buddhism Day

Posted by Andrew Ralph Cheffings on March 28, 2018 at 15:46 1 Comment

I wasn't getting as much done as I intended to or 'needed' to in my previous mode of moving between lots of different activities, so I decided to devote one day a week to a particular activity, and this week I'm doing a Buddhism day. I've finally managed to get started on Vow 22, then I did some online research and catching up with mostly Buddhist emails, then I wrote a dharma talk. I plan to do a service run-through later. It's certainly easier for me to get things done this way. Namo Amida…
