    Hello from Kent. The leaves are falling already but thats okay. I like the changing seasons and winters fine with me too. Quite easy to bare in comparison to this lifes constant obstacle course. All a test. Some times i pass and some times i just plane mess up. I just do my best to reflect and try and reform. Lovely to be a part of this Sangha.…[Read more]

    • Hello, Clare.
      The leaves are turning colour up here in Perth and falling in the woodland where I walk my little dog, Ojo. There are also lots of mushrooms and toadstools. Fortunately (after the summer’s foxglove drama) he isn’t interested, but I keep a close eye on him.

      As for life – yes, we bombu beings can do well, sometimes, and make a right…[Read more]

    • I am enjoying the beginning of the Autumn colours. Not enjoying the cold so much, especially with my new hair do! Woolly hats are in order! Thanks for sharing Clare.

    I managed to get my mug shot on here finally. Now i need to know how to post pics of my kitties on the Sangha pet thread. Can anyone help please. Namo Amida Bu

    • Good to see you! If you go to the bottom of the thread where you’d start writing, there’s a little picture of a picture at the far right on the top (it says insert/edit image) – click on that and it should be straightforward, let us know if you get stuck again!

    I really enjoyed your online Dharma talk Kaspalita. Thank You so much. I had feelings of great gratitude and closeness to the Sangha there. I love to hear the story of the Buddha. I looked over to his picture when you were telling it and my whole body tingled. It was nice to feel that joy. Im glad you showed off the cat as i was interested in…[Read more]

    Has been a beautiful summers day here in Ken. I sat in my garden and have felt more at ease just being still and quiet and looking at the lovely flowers that have bloomed this year.

    I asked a question lately of how i can understand Amitabha? I have since started reading a passage each night of the larger Sutra of immeasurable life.

    • Hi Clare – how are you finding the Sutra? I’m interested in your question -is it about how other people imagine/relate to Amitabha, or something abit different?

    Although i seem to of managed to let go of a lot of materialism and lost interest in cramming life with activity, i find myself not quite knowing what to do with oneself. Still not found that middle way. Still without this precious path there would be no way. Thank goodness for the blessings of Amida

    Yes, the Wolves Of Desire. Reining them is quite tricky as their good at their tricks. I followed a worldly desire recently which ultimately ended up in suffering as they always do eventually anyway. Usually quite quickly even. Felt pretty let down and depressed for a while there. I thought of a teaching i heard recently which reminded me I have a…[Read more]

    yes, me too. i recalled the Sangha also today as i practiced. I cleared a path in my small garden. for some walking meditation. It felt quite mundane at the start, then i began to settle into it also using the breath. Amitabha always present. Namo Amida Bu

    Namo Amida Bu. Thanks for being there on here

  • clare posted an update 3 months, 2 weeks ago

    Yes, i too have felt a little disconnected from Amitabha last few days. My formal practice has been a bit shaky of late. Tryed not to worry too much about it and just generated faith in his presence no matter what is happening.

    Hi everyone,
    Missed posting on Monday. I like to do this then as is a special day for remembering to recite Amidas name knowing others are making a special effort also. Helps feel a connection with other Pure Land practitioners and spreading peace through all Kind. Namo Amida Bu

    I think i am starting to develop some renunciation for the sensory world. Engaging in it really is a thorn bush. Much more peace keeping things simple. Namo Amida Bu

    Mind not that bright last few days. Only a light storm. All that arises ceases. This too will pass. Namo Amida Bu

    Hello everyone. Have enjoyed reading some of the posts. Especially about the coming together of the different Buddhist traditions for the special day in Birmingham. I spent Sunday at a Buddhist Monastery also different tradition. The day was very meaningful and i came away filled with joy and peace. Amitabha with me all the way.

    Hi Satya, Yes i wanted to make connection with the Sangha. The Monday chanting is good for strengthening and supporting our practice knowing others are focusing on the same. I will try and be mindful of this each Monday from now on and post.
