NO CHANGE IN AFGHANISTAN

President Trump has now finally made his "important statement" on policy in Afghanistan, basically admitting that he hasn't a clue what could possibly work. He does not really want to send more troops because it costs money and even when Obama put 100,000 of them there it did not achieve much. He does not want to pull out because it will look like a victory for the Taliban and ISIS. He does not like the status quo because, as he said as a candidate, it is a quagmire.He had to say something so…See More

WHAT CAN WE DO?

What can we do in response to the terrors, violence and dangers that are all over the world these days?Of course, there is a limit to what the individual person can do by personal power or genius. Even groups of people may have difficulty bringing about genuinely constructive change and, in any case, there is much confusion about the right goals and methods.It seems to me that as a general rule it is more use concentrating upon building the alternative than trying to deconstruct the troubles.…See More

THIS MORNING WE SHARED DREAMS

Posted on July 7, 2017 at 16:57 2 Comments

One of the best of things is good breakfast conversation and after long deep sleep what better to discuss than the dreams of the night before? Dreams are both mysterious and revealing and the many different systems of interpretation can each throw some light or trigger us into reminiscences or sharing of hopes, fears and experiences. Eleusis is an excellent place for dream work as the closeness to nature induces good sleep and the magical atmosphere inspires imagery.

A Special Weekend

Posted on June 26, 2017 at 23:52 4 Comments

I have spent the past weekend at meetings of the Amida Order in Malvern in UK. Apart from approving the advancement of a number of good people there was not a lot of "business" so we were able to concentrate upon our relationships with each other and with life and upon practising together. The whole thing turned out very well. The temple in Malvern is very comfortable and the location superb. It is difficult to convey the quality of interaction between people to those who were not there -…

I have a good friend Lin, who would very much like accompany me on a visit to France. A later Autumn/Winter/Spring visit may be on the cards......

"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.

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…
