Silence

In Pureland tradition there is an emphasis on receiving. We receive the grace of Amida. We do not have to do anything in order to receive this other than mentally turn toward the Buddha, which means to take refuge. Although this may be done by a verbal utterance which we call nembutsu, nembutsu can also be silent. Times of silence and solitude can be a wonderful blessing. They can be times when the spiritual forces in one's life rebalance themselves.

There is also an implicit emphasis…

My word for 2015

For the past few years Satya and I have chosen a word for the year, something we'd like to nourish or see grow in ourselves. This year I'm struggling to find a single word for what I'd like to see change.



I saw with great clarity towards the end of last year that what was driving some of my choices was not simply (as I thought) a sense of the right thing to do, but that there was also a part of me always looking out for the "judge"; someone who was going to catch…

Foolish Beings in a Pureland

Written this morning, looking out over the Severn Valley towards the Cotswolds.

There is a thin pink streak of light in the eastern sky. The sun is well over the horizon and that last thread of colour tells me what a glorious sunrise I would have seen if I had been up a little earlier.

The valley is heavy with mist; a few hilltops and the tips of the tallest trees stand above the almost liquid fog.  A little closer to me the fields and gardens I can see are covered…

Attachment

It doesn't really pay in my line of work to form emotional attachments to the people I support, some of the people I have been fortunate to support have a relatively short life expectancy, some only stay in our service a short time and move on, each person is unique in character, each one is unique due to varying degrees of disability, some have a debilitating illness, some are just vulnerable or struggling with mental illness, they all have one thing in common, as diverse and unique as people… Continue

Sometimes dreams do come true

Sometimes dreams do come true.

They don't come true in the way you imagine. The reality often includes more walking up and down stairs with heavy boxes, dog pee, form filling, frustration & cobwebs than you'd prefer.

But this weekend our temple was full of Amida Buddhists, chanting &…

Lost Buddhist Doctrines Part 2: Pudgala-vada

In the seventh century, Pudgalavadins were the most numerous denomination of Buddhists by a wide margin. Where are they now? The four or five schools of Pudgalavada have all disappeared. Pudgala means person. In the modern person-centred era these lost relatives may have something to say to us.

The Pudgalavadins believed that people exist. The real sense of this is in regard to the skandhas. According to the Pudgalavadin interpretation the Buddha taught that the problem in life…
