  • The darkness subsides.

    And the moon remains.

    A luminous shadow.

    From an SGI Nichiren Buddhist perspective the relationship is one tapping into your connection to the mystic law/ Buddha Nature inherent in our being, Through this “Determination” to live your life through coming into harmony with this it is hoped that insight, wisdom and an indestructable self will be manifested. There is a definate self pow…[Read more]

  • I was wondering if any of you have examples of how Amida has guided and transformed you? Thank you 🙂🙏🏻

  • This is a description of a day where you are free to do as you choose, moment to moment, so nothing to complain about. What about when you must do tasks you don’t like, perhaps for many hours, be with people who do not treat you kindly, or do worse, suffer painful illness, etc? What happens to your composure then?

  • Hi Paolo . In a way similar to brad Warner’s method I was taught a while back to treat it like a spoilt child wanting attention. Just observe/view it and give it attention then it can calm down . Another method is distraction. These work sometimes in varying degrees .

  • I have started reading the new Running Tide (actually I’ve read most of it but had to stop because it is so full of ideas and I needed to take a break to process). I am really enjoying reading it. I think Rob has done a lovely job editing it. I was intrigued what poem I had submitted because I think my buddha mind made the submission while my…[Read more]

    @sujatin Thank you! I have been a member before and needed some time to reflect on the dynamics of what a spiritual practice means to me! Not sure if I have any definate conclusions but I have been listening/watchingmany Amida Shu videos and I feel they convey a sense of compassion that feels good. Do will that sense of reconnection and warmth ……[Read more]

  • Thank you Kaspalita for the answer. And yes, it totally makes sense, despite the puppy caused sleep deprivation 🙂 Anyway, I agree with the fact that anger is a short term strategy for self protection, altough we have to manage it someway. On the faith side, well, I’m new to this concept and I have to feel it much deeper. Actually, I recognized…[Read more]
