Waarom de Amida school ?

Vragen:Wat bracht je ertoe om van Zen over te schakelen naar Zuiver Land?Wanneer wist je dat je klaar was om les te geven?Waarom creëerde je de Amida School in de plaats van je aan te passen aan de Jodo School?Korte antwoorden:Een natuurlijke progressie.De erkenning van mijn leraren en het bestaan van discipelen.Het praktische aspect.Langere antwoorden:Ik trainde in Zen met Kennett Roshi. Ze was absoluut een 'religieuze' boeddhist. Zij stond volledig haaks op de trend naar secularisatie.…See More

Waarom Amidisme ?

Vraag: Wat is er speciaal aan het Zuiverland boeddhisme en de toewijding aan Amida?Kort antwoord: een realistisch beeld over de mens, een generieke spiritualiteit en een eenvoudige beoefening.Langere antwoord: Zuiverland boeddhisme is ontwikkeld vanuit de  Boeddha z’n leringen voor gewone mensen. De meeste andere vormen van boeddhisme zijn monastieke tradities. Nu is het monnikendom geweldig, maar de meeste mensen zullen zich daar niet aan wijden. Toen Shakyamuni stierf, werden zijn relikwieën…See More

Tamuly Annette is attending Vajrapala Lut Moerman's event


May 28, 2018 to June 1, 2018
All Shu members are this year invited to this big event in the Amida calendar, at the home of Dharmavidya, Head off the Amida Order, here in France. This retreat is an opportunity to enter more deeply into the Pure Land practice and the fundamental teachings of Buddha: to recognise our human nature and to let in the Dharma. Dharmavidya has referred to Pure Land Buddhism as "refuge Buddhism", and explains that all Buddhist practice invites us to deepen our refuge. Though there seem to be many…See More

Vraag: Is metafysica noodzakelijk?Kort antwoord: je kunt niet zonder, maar meestal functioneert metafysica onzichtbaar, ingebed in de vanzelfsprekende veronderstellingen van mensen.Langere antwoord: dit soort vragen is over het algemeen geworteld in de reductionistische tendens van onze cultuur, de wens om alleen concrete geregistreerde gegevens als "echt" te beschouwen.Maar zelfs die bewering is metafysisch. Metafysica is de studie van wat we beschouwen als reëel, of van wat we onszelf…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…

 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" ? You can do it in Flemish and Elja will add an English translation if that is easier. Much love - Dh

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…

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…

''The lotus does not grow in the solid ground of lofty plateaus, but in the muddy ponds of lowland marshes. This is an analogy meaning that foolish beings, while in the mud of blind passions, put forth the blossoms of the Buddha's perfect enlightenment; This indicates the inconceivable power of the Tathagata's universal Primal Vow.''

From ''The Essential Shinran.''
