The latest news from Dharmavidya: MONDAY 8 Feb; Writing from Father and Son

This morning I was able to have a talk with the doctor from which I was able to ascertain that he thinks it will be six months before my lungs are completely clear of blood clots. During that time they will keep me on blood thinners. He says that I can go home on Wednesday and the local doctor will take over the job of balancing my medication. At the moment I am getting warfarin every evening and injections of another thinner morning and evening. When I go home it will be one injection per day.…See More

News from the temple: rainy days and duvet days

Satya is singing hymns in her office. Jim the gas-man is repairing a gas fire. I have just hung out a load of sheets and put another on to wash.Monday is officially a day of rest in the temple. Prajna, in Ontario, told us that she takes one day to 'walk, read, and pray' and our day off is inspired by this. Although, personally, I don't always meet the aspiration for my day off to be a retreat day. Today I woke up feeling grumpy and eventually went back to bed. My mind and body were calling for…See More

" The golden Buddha that sits on the shrine in our flat. This is the one that Satya had in her garden for years before bringing it inside and gold-leafing it. (Well gold-coloured-leafing it, at least.) "

"Yes that's true, Ananda. In the language of Zen, and most Mahayana Buddhism, it fits very well. But when I read Honen's writing about how difficult or near impossible it is to be genuinely kind in this age, I wonder if there is a way of…"

SATURDAY 6 Feb When I finally got to St Amand today, I was taken straight to the hospital to visit Dharmavidya. I was feeling tired but happy to be back. The sun was shining warmly, apparently for the first time in a while, making me feel welcomed and a sense of being in exactly the right place at the right time. Resilience I must admit that I had raised my expectations pretty optimistically about the condition that I expected to find Dharmavidya in when I arrived. Largely, I think, based on…See More

Touching the Depths - Spiritual Encounters in Art Making at Amida Mandala Buddhist Temple

April 23, 2016 from 9:30am to 4:30pm
In this retreat we will use art making to explore and communicate our relationship to spirituality. It will also be the vehicle by which we encounter each other in a shared symbolic space. Whilst art making is a physical activity performed by our bodies, the concrete, material images and objects we make also have a psychological lining. An image is a bridge metaphorically and literally between self and other, and it is in this transitional space that - personally and interpersonally - new…See More
