Nembutsu morning

Posted 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.…

MY REAL LIFE

Posted by David Brazier on December 8, 2018 at 15:20 3 Comments

Born: September 13, 1919, London, United Kingdom

Died: October 10, 2018

Mary was a dear friend and inspiration. I first met her when she came to a meditation class I was leading. Her husband had recently died and she was grieving.

Running a Course in Korea and Elsewhere

Posted by David Brazier on August 3, 2018 at 1:40 2 Comments

I am currently leading courses on Buddhist psychology here in Seoul, Korea, but as I am putting the course onto this site as we go along, members of La Ville au Roi (Eleusis) are also responding so it is a bit as though the course is going on in several countries at the same time which is nice.
