It’s funny what goes through your mind when you spend several hours walking round in circles chanting! In my experience it can be as mundane as thinking about the person who laid the carpet, or as profound as contemplating the significance of spiritual practice. Here’s what came up for me in our most recent session:In a few billion years the sun will burn out and it’s gravitational mass will be reduced to the point where it can no longer maintain it’s influence on the other planets in the solar…See More

Morning Meditation.

Beautiful sky.Dark clouds with a rugged tear,Stretching across the horizon,and giving a sense of worlds beyond.A rip in the curtain of delusion,forming a peephole through to the Pure Land.The sweet sound of the birds is an echo of my breathing,and not apart from it.Many Buddhas and much rejoicing as the universe celebrates the power of practice,sending waves of bliss and passion into my heart.The world rests in a deep trance,awaiting the call to service.Namo Amida Bu!See More

Seizing the Hell Realms

Posted on January 29, 2017 at 14:35 0 Comments

Ippen's hymn came to me at work the other day when I was struggling to find gratitude for the recent, somewhat un-forseen circumstances of my life. Although we hate the hell realms, ''we seize them again''. I always take these words as a reference to the continuum that unfolds as karma and delivers us to the conditions in which we find faith and then continue to unpick the knot of our bondage to Samsara. Whilst psychological growth is key to the process, equally as important is to…

Humility.

I found these in a book that Satya lent me recently. They're helping me to identify my spiritual pride and my resistance to reality. Thanks Satya. Namo Amida Bu(   :

  1. Be aware of God's presence always. Remind yourself that if God is everywhere, God is present as everyone. Each encounter is an encounter with God, demanding your…

Tetragrammaton.

Posted on December 11, 2016 at 14:52 2 Comments

Seems funny that I should end up wandering around Worcester cathedral on my birthday. The first opportunity I’ve had since I’ve been living in the area over the past years. So I thought I’d follow up my recent blog ”Sacred Space” by explaining some of the features, as they appear in these buildings, with my own unique interpretation. Not to be taken as religious or spiritual fact, by the way.



An immense sense of space and a dense matrix of symbolism blows me away as it presents…

The love your neighbour campaign in Birmingham came about after the decision to leave the EU. There was an increase in racist attacks and the Church of England hierarchy felt they should take action. What they did was encourage schools and other community venues to put free of charge bright orange banners on fencing etc with the words love your neighbour on them. At the moment funding has been obtained to make more banners to replace any of the 1000 that have gone up already and to encourage… Continue

The bowl of feathers

Once upon a time there was a traveler from the lands below.

Lived in a cottage in the mountains all alone.

The only company he had were the animals and the trees.

Though company they were none the less spoke in language only the soul hears.

Songs of days passed they sang just…

Nembutsu morning

Posted by Kaspalita on March 18, 2017 at 9:33 2 Comments

Honen encouraged his followers to set aside special times for intense practice; half a day, or a whole day, or a week. We’ll be continuously chanting nembutsu for three hours this morning. Unlike Honen I don’t manage to recite sixty or seventy thousand nembutsu everyday, as I’m going about ordinary life, so I love these set aside times when I can immerse myself in the presence of the Buddha, in the Buddha-field, in the Pure Land.…
