UNAS POCAS REFLEXIONES SOBRE EL ESTAR AQUÍ Y AHORA

Publicado por David Brazier el 23 de marzo de 2018  en Discusiones Budistas Actualmente, la idea de "estar en el aquí y ahora" está de moda. y considero que es un asunto verdaderamente interesante sobre el que reflexionar. Aquí y ahora estoy sentado en la habitación central de mi casa en Francia. Las paredes son blancas. La estufa de leña es negra. Las observaciones de este tipo parecen introducir  simplicidad en mi existencia y eso es algo a guardar como oro en paño. En el momento preciso en…See More

Negatividad: La importancia del pensamiento secundario

Publicado por David Brazier el 17 de marzo de 2018 en “Discusiones budistas” Los pensamientos y sentimientos negativos son un calvario para la vida humana. Son la contrapartida del gran don que es la imaginación. Una persona me insulta de alguna manera y me altero con emociones indeseadas. Pensamientos de venganza, o amargura, o culpa, o muchos otros propósitos no edificantes zumban a mi alrededor como una nube de mosquitos que buscan la sangre. En ese momento, incluso recordando un propósito…See More

Lessons from a stone

Posted on March 19, 2016 at 14:28 2 Comments

I picked up a stone from a natural path which is not far from my home.

The stone is not very big. It seems to be a piece broken off a larger stone, as some of its borders are still sharp-edged. It is a little bit rough to the touch and leaves a fine dust on my fingers when touching it. Its surface is more or less flat because of the erosion of wear but you can notice the grain of its original texture.

I observe and touch it…

Nembutsu Question

Posted by Dayamay Dunsby on April 20, 2018 at 8:22 1 Comment

I found this in a book that I'm reading. It has challenged my current "understanding" of the Nembutsu. I tend to think of the name itself as salvation and the bridge to the Pure Land...

"...Nembutsu is not a means to gain salvation but a reflection of it. Shinran acknowledges there is nembutsu without true entrusting because he lived in an environment where nembutsu was recited for benefits and merit. By itself it cannot produce true entrusting. Nevertheless, they are inseparable as…

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…

REMEMBERING SAIKO SENSEI

Posted by David Brazier on March 19, 2018 at 21:43 1 Comment

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…
