Secrecy and Deception

"Yes, the wars have not stopped. I still hold to the (perhaps sentimental!) notion that things might have been worse in the absence of that 2003 upsurge of public feeling, or rather upsurge of criticism.Re now, hard to think of a time when two years…"

Dewdrops glisten in the morning sun

Posted on May 21, 2016 at 11:30 2 Comments

Saturday 21st May

The dewdrop bejewels the grass in the dazzling early morning sunshine, bringing forth the promise of a sunny day ahead.

Yesterday we were again at Oasis for the weekly service. In his dharma talk Dharmavidya gave a new perspective on the classic teaching of sila, samadhi, prajna sometimes referred to as the “three higher trainings of Mahayana” and traditionally regarded as being a sequential teaching, a teaching that can be mapped onto marga…


Eleusis Diary (One)

Posted on April 28, 2013 at 23:00 4 Comments

28th April 

I have now been at Eleusis for nearly a week and spent my first ever weekend here alone. In fact this is the longest period I have stayed without companionship. There is much to do and at the moment I am just really establishing a daily routine (of sorts) and mostly concentrating on tidying up the immediate environment around the main building - cutting the grass, weeding the main flower bed at the front and starting the mammoth task of organising rooms, shifting pieces of…

I have to work out the navigation on this site a little bit still :)  I may be answering you on another page now.  But many thanks for your warm welcome to the group.  Yes, wouldn't it be something if I could attend a retreat and meet one day?  That would be a fine thing, definitely.

Medicine Buddha

Posted by Satya Robyn on April 24, 2017 at 13:57 0 Comments

Colleague Buddhists - I'm getting to know Medicine Buddha as I haven't met him before and he's come into my life at just the right time.

Anything you'd be willing to share about your personal relationship with him / stories/ facts / books etc. I'd be very grateful. Deep bow.

I am about to do, or have already done, something wrong,

Which will cause me to be responsible for something terrible.

How can I prevent this from happening, or undo what is already done?

I even feel responsible for others' atrocities I don't even know.


There are accidents,

There are mistakes,

And there is deliberately doing wrong.

Why do I feel responsible for others'…


Continue, Improve, Practice and Try.

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
