Nembutsu morning

Posted 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. Unlike Honen I don’t manage to recite sixty or seventy thousand nembutsu everyday, as I’m going about ordinary life, so I love these set aside times when I can immerse myself in the presence of the Buddha, in the Buddha-field, in the Pure Land.…

MY MEDICAL CONDITION

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

My medical condition continues to be a mystery.

Grace.

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

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…

Zero Limits

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…
