    Hi everyone. I finally joined the Face Book page so i can join with the Thursday evening live practice with Satya. It felt very special and bought peace. Even my cats seemed chilled and all 3 were present which was nice for them. I will be able to join this Thursdays practice as not working. So will look forward to that. Namo Amida Bu

    I took 2 lovely little Dogs out for a walk yesterday. Itwas a beautiful spring day and the Park i took them to had such a nice energy. When i returned i felt very grateful for the peaceful mind that simple little exercise generated. I wrote it down in my gratitude note book. This helps seems to help dispel the negative energies that arise. Namo Amida Bu

    Hi Everyone on here. Its been lovely reading through the posts on here. They are all so inspiring and helpful with the practice. I have been working a lot lately and not much chance to get online. I get a bit stressed when tired as a lot of us do. Will be glad when i can have a bit more free time to relax and be more still with life. I find work…[Read more]

    What a lovely post to read Ananda. Yes, its so easy to be lost in the daily chores and routines, even though they are necessary. To let go and sit back tunes us back in to what is – The here and now!. Thank you for reminding me of this special, simple and very peaceful practice. Namo Amida Bu

    Guess i timed it right for my visit to the Amida Temple the other weekend. Plenty of snow here in Kent. Not masses in Margate though where i am. Just a bit. We seem to miss the worst of it in this little corner. Will see what occurs tonight as more snow forecast. It looks pretty but can also be lethal. Im grateful to be able to stay indoors as off…[Read more]

    Each day I generate a mind of gratitude. It helps dispell negativity and gradually lifts the spirit. I feel grateful to live in a country where all my basic needs are easily met, have freedom to practice my faith and my 3 precious feline friends. Namo Amida Bu

    Just to say what a lovely visit i had to The Amida Temple in Malvern this weekend. I really enjoyed joining in with the Saturday service and practices and having taken the 5 refuges in this tradition. The room was very peaceful and with a most beautiful view. It was nice to chill and drink tea with the Sangha community. It was so nice to see my…[Read more]

    Hello Sangha friends. I’m now on lesson 4 of the pure land course. It’s helping me reflect on certain points. In particular our bombing nature and entrusting ourself to Amida. Refuge seems stronger. In particular the section on contrition. I now realise why certain mind states are arising. I thought they were negative and sad but their not it’s…[Read more]

    I found your post on greed very inspiring Acharya Kaspalita. I question myself a lot these days in relation to that one. Lately i am thinking more about the environment and how i can reduce all this plastic that we have to put up with like food packaging. Im looking at things i can go without or at least reduce such as wrapped fruit/vegetables to…[Read more]

    • Hi Clare – thank you. There is always more to do – we just go one step at a time, moving forward in Amida’s light. If you have access to Netflix you can see the Minimalist documentary I mentioned, they also have a podcast as well.

    IHi Satya, ive been a vegan for many years now, its a part of me and i couldnt imagine not being one. Sounds like you are too. Grand.
    Namo Amida Bu

    • Ah, wonderful – I hadn’t realised that before. We always offer vegan food here at the temple (me & Kaspa have been vegan for a few years now) – it’s a big part of our local ‘offering’, we also do lots of vegan baking to show people how delicious cakes can be etc…..

    I like living a Buddhist and vegan life. Its kind and pure.

    I like the reference to STOP. Shall also be putting this up on my shrine as a reminder. And thanks to all on here who reminded me. Its a very good practice alongside recitation of Amitabha Buddha. Namo Amida Bu
