Eleusis My Visit

My Visit at Eleusis.

 

Day 1 20th March

 

While travelling Australia in 2011 I read a book that moved me deeply.

This book was called “Who loves well dies well”

Having just lost my own mother I had great admiration for David for making his mothers death so wonderful, I felt i wanted to know more about this man.(Dharmavidya).

I researched online and found the site Eleusis . I knew i wanted to stay here.

5 years later the time…

Thanks for the gardening comment. Yes, we'll see how many survive. It all hinges on how much frost, how severe and how soon, I guess.

The love your neighbour campaign in Birmingham came about after the decision to leave the EU. There was an increase in racist attacks and the Church of England hierarchy felt they should take action. What they did was encourage schools and other community venues to put free of charge bright orange banners on fencing etc with the words love your neighbour on them.

Once upon a time there was a traveler from the lands below.

Lived in a cottage in the mountains all alone.

The only company he had were the animals and the trees.

Nembutsu morning

Posted by Kaspalita on March 18, 2017 at 9:33 2 Comments

Honen encouraged his followers to set aside special times for intense practice; half a day, or a whole day, or a week. We’ll be continuously chanting nembutsu for three hours this morning.
