POST-MAPPO REDISCOVER INNOCENCE

In my Dharma talk today I suggested that we are now in the fourth age of the Dharma. In the first age of the Dharma Buddha Shakyamuni was still in this world or had recently passed away and people became enlightened by direct encounter with him or with one of his great disciples. This was the age of direct inspiration.In the second age of the Dharma, people were able to become enlightened and enter nirvana by means of self-power practices. It was not that these rituals had an intrinsic power,…See More

WEEP FOR OUR WORLD

Posted on August 20, 2019 at 21:38 2 Comments



At the moment I am feeling very sad for the state of the planet. As I write the great forests are being consumed by fire, both the tropical forest in Brazil and the tundra forest in Russia. The great forests are the lungs of the earth. I myself have lung problems. When there are parts of the lungs that don’t work anymore one can run out of energy. It can strike suddenly. We will probably not do anything serious about climate change or wildlife extinction…

MY MEDICAL CONDITION

Posted on June 26, 2019 at 18:04 10 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…

SUCCESSFUL FIRST ELEUSIS SEMINAR

Posted on March 15, 2019 at 16:59 2 Comments

We have just had our first Eleusis Seminar on the theme of the Philosophy of Taoism.

Sixteen people took part and from immediate feedback it seems to have been a great success.

We shall do more.

There is a second meeting of a more open kind this evening.

Thank you for welcoming me to Eleusis.

The pleasure to meet was on my side, and it is a delight to stay in contact.

Thank you for the invitation, David. I hope you will get better soon. I just had Karin visiting at my holiday home in Holland. We talked about the ITZI conference. I look forward to attend. (Still need to register.) Cheers!

It was good to be part of the talk and discussion. A unique experience from my kitchen in Tel Aviv as I prepare to fix our family dinne. I look forward to more !

Thanks for your invitation.

Thank you

Noble practice then: with confidence , at ease. Well centered. With an upaya to suite the person and situation, definitely not merely 方便 approach. But I cheat, for I am reading your book and still grappling with your mention of upaya: I had not dwelled on that one until your message. But I meant Upeksha - perhaps a good concept to associate with noble ?

I am wondering what characters render XinJin and AnJin - perhaps I can then locate the original Chan terms

At 6:48 on September 9, 2018, Daniel Bairey said…

 hoşbulduk, Baruch Hanimza” : both Hebrew and Turkish have developed apt responses to “Welcome”, perhaps each loosely rendered as “glad to be here “ and “Blessed is he/she already there”. Possibly in English that could be “Well Arrived” 。I have yet to find the Buddhist or Chinese response , so 全心欢迎您的回答 (“Whole hearted welcome Your response )

Thank you,  I will try to join, at least single days if it's possible. For the next workshops during 2018 in Korea I will work out my attendance in a more relaxed way!

Sagesse féline...

Posted by Tamuly Annette on September 29, 2019 at 12:00 1 Comment

En l'absence de Darmavidya, j'ai - en ma qualité de voisine et d'amie - le privilège de m'occuper (un peu) de Tara, la petite chatte. C'est un bonheur  de la voir me faire la fête chaque fois que je me rends à Eleusis: elle s'étire, se roule sur le dos au soleil ou saute sur mes genoux. J'ignore si elle a profité de l'enseignement du maître des lieux, mais j'ai comme l'impression qu'elle me donne une belle leçon de sagesse: elle…

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
