I'm a member of the Amida USA Hawaii Sangha. I have been a practicing member of Pureland Buddhism here in Hawaii for almost 20 years. Dharmavidya and I first met in Hawaii about ten years ago, and I count myself blessed to call him a friend. Since first learning about Eleusis five years ago, I have watched it develop and I welcome the opportunity to participate more closely with all of you. Namo Amida Bu!

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 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.
