This morning I did a short zazen then read Ryokan, then did a ‘Butsu’ buzzy voice warm up with windscreen wiper feet, then did a puja thinking about welcoming Amida in, then a 20 minute zazen style deep listening. The Bodhi retreat at Amida Mandala was lovely and it’s informing my practice today.
Good to hear from everyone. I just finished the 2nd draft of my book on refuge which will be called ‘Coming Home: Refuge in Pureland Buddhism’. I’ve sent it to Dharmavidya and Kaspa for comment. Hurray! (and it means I get to relax over Christmas before I start the final proofread).
Off to lunch with Caroline later to celebrate. I love being a writer at moments like this, not so much the rest of the time!
