Secrecy and Deception

"There won't be a general election unless things get much worse very quickly. There is a serious attempt going on (initiated by Cameron) to have fixed term parliaments, but an unexpected spin off has been referenda which, in my view, are worse…"

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…"

"Regarding wars, the West did go on to destabilise Libya and tried it in Syria with disastrous results that we are still suffering. Iran would be a much tougher nut. Regarding more referendums, it is an interesting speculation what will happen. The…"

Secrecy and Deception

"It may just the kind of self-suggestion you mentioned, but I wonder if that march you all made in 2003 achieved things that were not so clearly marked? Perhaps it was the next war that was headed off, thus. The drums might have been beaten louder to…"

Secrecy and Deception

"One difference it made was that the fact that so many marched and it seemed to make no difference to anything led to a decline in marches and demos for quite a while afterwards. Street politics seemed futile then and has only recently revived and,…"

Secrecy and Deception

"To me that's an unarguable truth, simply because its so open-ended and generalised. I accept that both myself and all those I speak with are almost comically partial in our understanding of these things (partial in both senses). But…"

Secrecy and Deception

"What is clear is that how one feels depends upon how one sees things and how one sees them is a function of what information is revealed and what remains out of sight. We are easily deceived and more easily so in the directions that we want to…"

"Much here that I relate to, welcome. As a statement of broad principle I find it practical, intelligent and generous. But framed, as it is, as a response to the Chilcott report, I also see I'm very uneasy with it. It may not be exactly what you…"

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.

Great Intentions.

Posted by Adam Dunsby on August 3, 2017 at 22:42 0 Comments

  • The power of intentions is a topic that comes up regularly for me and always provides me with food for thought. In a recent service I was struck by the gravity of the Bodhisattva vows that we sing as part of our liturgy. ”Innumerable…

Study Group.

Posted by Adam Dunsby on July 18, 2017 at 22:41 1 Comment

We just had a study group meeting at Amida Mandala Temple. Only three of us but a very rich hour. Predictably we came round to the issue of ‘is one Nembutsu enough?’ My understanding: In a sense it is, because when we call Amida we become one with his vow and the Pure Land and thus we are saved. In another sense we have to keep calling him so that he can keep saving us. As if we’re all lost in a thick fog and Amida is a few steps ahead of us illuminating the way, we have to keep him in sight…
