"Great points, sir! Nothing to add, I totally agree with you.
After point 3, yes, I've heard about that (I saw a BBC documentary if I recall). Perhaps if Buddha and Jesus meet, they'll find many common points, more than their followers for…"
"Yes, I agree. I guess I rebel against that fact, mostly because I radically fight for women rights, that women vote more conservative, but you got a point.
Perhaps it is also a generation matter: young people vote less, and old women (at least, in…"
"From one side, I guess it's a matter of translation to European backgrounds. And so we speak in Buddhism about faith, sin, hell and pure lands. From other side, I think that it's a matter of language economy. And so we read about…"
Well, I guess it's the same in my country: 53% of women who voted, voted to the extreme-right wing Spanish party. But that's not the point, the point is that more than 60% of Spain population didn't vote. I guess it's the…"

I received an invitation for Dharmavidya.
Is your primary interest...

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
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.…
