Cahya Maitri Avalokita replied to David Brazier's discussion QUEEN VAIDEHI in the group BUDDHISM
"Wonderful article! It is indeed awe-inspiring to consider the karmic baggage we've all amassed on our Samsaric merry-go-round, but that like Queen Vaidehi we can find rest in Amida's Primal Vow and the Land of Bliss. Namu Amida Butsu."

"Very nice thanks. I was thinking about the age of Mappo the other day in the context of collective karma. The effect of worldly ignorance gathering momentum. Where will it lead? How far down will we have to go as a species before we realise that…"

Real Suffering is a Suffering of Mind

Mental disquiet affects us all. It is, in fact, the greatest cause of human suffering. Of course, we do not think we are so disturbed -- after all, we are lucid, coherent, not raving. True; but we are deceiving ourselves by clinging to these sources of reassurance. We are all stirred by our thoughts. Mental function drives our actions. It is in the mind that karma first forms, as the concept that becomes the action. Conditions conspire to arouse certain thoughts, and we cling to them with a…See More

MY MEDICAL CONDITION

Posted by David Brazier on June 26, 2019 at 18:04 6 Comments

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. There is always a possibility that the whole syndrome is a…

Grace.

Posted by Dayamay Dunsby on June 2, 2019 at 1:02 4 Comments

“Do we know what it means to be struck by grace? It does not mean that we suddenly believe that God exists, or that Jesus is the saviour, or that the Bible contains the truth. Grace strikes us when we are in great pain and restlessness. It strikes us when we walk through the dark Valley of a meaningless and empty life. It strikes us when we feel that our separation is deeper than usual, because we have violated another life, a life which we loved, or from which we were estranged. It strikes us… Continue

This is a short video of a Buddhist monk and his family. 

It raised questions on parenting and Buddhism - does detachment (or perhaps quietism), as practiced here, lead to demotivation and disengagement with the world around one?

His children find the detachment practised by the monk disquieting. They appreciate the irony of detachment, which is supposed to…

I have recently been made aware of a practice known as Ho’ponopono. Ho’ponopono is an ancient Hawaiian healing practice, based on universal forgiveness, that was rediscovered and popularised in the 80s. A man called Joe Vitale(Hawaiian I think)  became enchanted by the practice after his daughter was healed from an…
