Rational Amidism: Prayer ~ Bhikkhu Mui Buddhist Monk & Teacher, Abbot of Hongaku Jodo

I am often asked if Buddhists, any Buddhist, believe in a Supreme Being analogous to the Western God. My answer is always, “No, we don’t. If any sect proclaims an original anything then they are not Buddhist.” Clearly, belief in a first cause is an anti-Buddhist idea, according to the words of the Buddha himself.The question then arises, “Who do Buddhists pray to?” Having been originally trained as Theravada Buddhist monk the word and idea of “prayer” was not altogether alien to me, but I…See More

"Thanks for that Sujatin - it totally hits the spot.  No wonder that the Celtic Tradition pays so much heed to these threshold spaces and moments where light meets dark, water meets earth, spirit meets matter.......  Iona is a place for me…"

Amida Birmingham: second meeting in our lovely new venue!

Early rain and damp greyness soon gave way to lovely spring sunshine here in Birmingham as our local group met here in Birmingham under the leadership of our dear Sanghamitra. Our new venue (at the All Saints' Centre, Vicarage Rd, King's Heath - where we normally meet at 10 am on the second Saturday of each month) has a light and airy room with real stained glass windows and an excellent 'vibe' to it. There we set out our altar and mats and enjoyed a couple of hours of joyful worship,…See More
