Religie of psychologie

Vraag: Is het boeddhisme een religie of een psychologie?Kort antwoord: Beide en nog meer, maar een religie in de eerste plaatsLanger antwoord: Het boeddhisme is in de eerste plaats een religie en heeft als zodanig geleid tot cultuur en beschaving, met inbegrip van systemen van onderwijs, psychologie, gemeenschapsvorming, politiek, kunst, literatuur, poëzie, enzovoorts. Als het boeddhisme geen religie zou zijn, dan is het vrij onwaarschijnlijk dat het nog steeds zou bestaan. Men zou niet…See More

Assumer secrètement les souffrances d'autrui

Question : Pouvez-vous en dire plus sur ce verset : "Apporter de l'aide et du bonheur à tous les autres êtres, et prendre secrètement sur moi, tout leur mal et leur souffrance. (Tiré des Huit versets de Guéshé Langri Thangpa dans le livre Nien Fo de l'école Amida). Les gens me disent : Je ne veux pas prendre sur moi le mal et la souffrance des autres, je ne peux pas le supporter, ce n'est pas sain de le faire.Réponse courte : Le bouddhisme n'est pas une question d'avantage personnel.Réponse…See More

Heimelijk het lijden van anderen op zich nemen

Vraag: Kun je iets meer vertellen over het vers: "Breng hulp en geluk aan alle andere wezens, en neem in het geheim al hun kwaad en lijden op mijzelf,"? (Uit de Acht Verzen van Geshe Langri Thangpa in het Nien Fo boek van de Amida school). Mensen zeggen me: Ik kan de pijn en het lijden van anderen niet op me nemen, ik kan dit niet verdragen, het is niet gezond om dit te doen.Kort antwoord: Boeddhisme gaat niet over het persoonlijke belang.Langer antwoord: Natuurlijk willen de meeste mensen het…See More

Ordination as a Gankonin

Posted on December 15, 2015 at 12:30 0 Comments

On the Bodhi Retreat 7-13 December In Amida Mandala Malvern, I was ordained as Amita Vajrapala, a Gankonin in the Amida Order, vocation as a disciple to the service of the Buddhas and budhisattvas to help and serve all sentient beings.

The transmission of Amida's light was transmitted to me by the precepts I discided to take, by the kind love, care and wisdom…

 Chère Vajrapala... merci pour votre message. oui, je suis française et je me tiens prête à vous aider si cela peut vous être utile. (J'ai traduit le livre de Dharmavidya "The Feeeling Buddha" en français, sous le titre "Un Bouddha au coeur sensible". publié par les éditions Almora) J'habite à quelques kilomètres d'Eleusis dans une petite communauté bouddhiste. Toutes mes amitiés! NAB

Dear Vajrapala Lut! i am quite happy to get in touch with you. I shall try my best to help you. Yes  for "foolish beings" I suggest "des êtres insensés" "stupides" déraisonnables"

As for the text, you could translate it like that:

"Il est des gens qui ont un peu de poussière dans les yeux et qui gaspillent leur vie car ils n'écoutent  pas le Dharma".

A the best to you! Namo Amiada Bu!

OK, thank you. If you look you will see that I have turned your "comment" into a "discussion" like the other groups listed. You will also find you are now listed in the "* INDEX" on the right. Have a look at it and see if you are happy with it as I have made a few edits to make it look nice and read well. If there is anything you want to change, let me know. I think it looks nice. Namo Amida Bu.

Hello, Vajra, Namo Amida Bu. I wonder if you would like to to add a "discussion" for your place/group in the group "Our Friends" http://eleusis.ning.com/group/our-friends ? You can do it in Flemish and Elja will add an English translation if that is easier. Much love - Dh

WEEP FOR OUR WORLD

Posted by David Brazier on August 20, 2019 at 21:38 2 Comments



At the moment I am feeling very sad for the state of the planet. As I write the great forests are being consumed by fire, both the tropical forest in Brazil and the tundra forest in Russia. The great forests are the lungs of the earth. I myself have lung problems. When there are parts of the lungs that don’t work anymore one can run out of energy. It can strike suddenly. We will probably not do anything serious about climate change or wildlife extinction…

MY MEDICAL CONDITION

Posted by David Brazier on June 26, 2019 at 18:04 10 Comments

My medical condition continues to be a mystery. It is clear that I do not have any of the big nasty things - brain tumour, cracked skull, stroke, etc - as these have been ruled out by MRI investigation. Nonetheless I continue to have persistent, continuous head pain that varies in intensity and I become exhausted by the least effort so that I am functioning like an invalid incapable of doing very much. There is always a possibility that the whole syndrome is a…

Grace.

Posted by Dayamay Dunsby on June 2, 2019 at 1:02 4 Comments

“Do we know what it means to be struck by grace? It does not mean that we suddenly believe that God exists, or that Jesus is the saviour, or that the Bible contains the truth. Grace strikes us when we are in great pain and restlessness. It strikes us when we walk through the dark Valley of a meaningless and empty life. It strikes us when we feel that our separation is deeper than usual, because we have violated another life, a life which we loved, or from which we were estranged. It strikes us… Continue

This is a short video of a Buddhist monk and his family. 

It raised questions on parenting and Buddhism - does detachment (or perhaps quietism), as practiced here, lead to demotivation and disengagement with the world around one?

His children find the detachment practised by the monk disquieting. They appreciate the irony of detachment, which is supposed to…
