Susthama Kim commented on David Kilburn's blog post Restart for democracy in South Korea
"What a great post! To think that South Korea's leadership is moving towards a more humble and less elitist position while America seems to be moving into a more fascist one is fascinating. It feels like we are at a tipping point in history."

"Yes, I know what you mean. The big political goings on are like a larger than life theatre that reflects the same bombu nature back to us as we encounter in smaller ways (though to each of us personally feeling larger) every day."

Celebrating Kim Il Sung's anniversary

I am going to bed wondering if war will break out on the Korean Peninsula. Scary prospect bordering on unthinkable. With men like Donald Trump and Kim Jong un, unpredictable and reckless, it is possible that they will actually provoke the other to react without thinking about the consequences that it will have on so many lives for so many years to come. So far it seems that China, South Korea, Japan, and Russia unanimously want a peaceful resolution but Trump has made a move that could lead…See More

A Special Weekend

Posted by David Brazier on June 26, 2017 at 23:52 1 Comment

I have spent the past weekend at meetings of the Amida Order in Malvern in UK. Apart from approving the advancement of a number of good people there was not a lot of "business" so we were able to concentrate upon our relationships with each other and with life and upon practising together. The whole thing turned out very well. The temple in Malvern is very comfortable and the location superb. It is difficult to convey the quality of interaction between people to those who were not there -…

COMPASSION FOR OUR WORLD

Posted by David Brazier on June 1, 2017 at 14:00 1 Comment

I suppose that for many people politics seems something rather remote. For me, it is always close to my heart. Not that I strongly support this or that party, but because the issues are of such consequence. This is perhaps because of my early years having been passed in the Middle East where those consequences are evident in a more raw way. Over my lifetime I have watched as a pivotal region of the world has been systematically wrecked and ruined. Beautiful, cosmopolitan, multi-religious…

Message from Geeta

Posted by David Brazier on May 26, 2017 at 19:30 0 Comments

I (Geeta) can offer up to 3 people a lift from Surrey to Eleusis, leaving at 5 am on 1st June and/or returning to England about 5 pm on 4th June. I can offer one person (or a couple) accommodation on the night before we travel and the night that we return.

Thank you Geeta - nice offer.
