"Agree, it is very complicated and the boundaries of the mind, will, thought, genes, environment... become blurry. Having said this, still, we do hold some control over it, and we can still try to move our thoughts, our life to what and where we…"

"Yes, it is very complicated, isn't it? We each have a certain nature, and can change it by degrees and a lot depends on how we think about it, yet how we think about things is also our nature, so it can easily become circular. There again,…"

Responsabilidad sobre nuestras acciones

Hace poco en una reunión de grupo, un investigador presentó el famoso tema del “Microbioma”. Este es un tema que en recientes fechas ha cobrado mucho interés, la idea de ser “controlados” por los habitantes de nuestras entrañas suele desatar emociones extremas, pudiendo parecer un tema fascinante o bien una historia de terror moderna, algo como “los verdaderos zombies”. Recientes estudios han demostrado que nuestra flora en el tracto gastrointestinal es en cierta medida responsable de hasta los…See More

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…

REMEMBERING SAIKO SENSEI

Posted by David Brazier 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…
