    Hello everyone. I joined a couple of the online services at Amida Temple and must say what a lovely and inspiring experience. I had to miss this week as working every other Wednesday now but that still leaves me with the other 2 weds to join so very grateful for that. Thank you Kaspa and Satya and anyone else involved who helps us to remain…[Read more]

    During lockdown I was glad I was able to go out to work even though work so challenging. Staying home all the time would of driven me crazy I think. I caught covid and was quite sick but luckily not hospitalised. I work in care and was very much exposed to the infection so not surprising really. So many health care workers went off with it. Now we…[Read more]

    Hello all on here, not much new to report and pretty boring but still alive and faith in Amida ever present. Good enough, good!

    Trying to take the rough with the smooth. When my mind leans toward either suffering or happiness I just try and bring it back to the centre of Amida. The middle way! Namo Amida Bu

    A fortunate encounter!
    There are a pair of crows who live close by and often graze on the green in front of my house. I noticed a third near them recently and realised it was their youngster. I have never seen a baby crow before or the interaction with the parents. The parents keeping watch and tending to it. Their baby behaved just like a child.…[Read more]

    Hi Satya,
    Sorry for late reply. Time just slips away! In truth I think Im just becoming more grumpy and miserable with age. So pretty normal really LOL. Hope you and the animals are all okay.

    Not much new going on. Have long bouts of working then long bouts of not. No balance. Still managing to stay alive between the weird illnesses I keep getting for last couple months. Practice good and strong. Amitabha present so all good!. Namo Amida Bu

    Im choosing not to forget about all the suffering of animals, our fellow sentients. Especially all those poor things being tested on for the sake of so called humanity. May they all receive Amidas blessings and be reborn in his land. Namo Amida Bu

    Thank you for the online service Satya and Kaspa. Technology can be a blessing some times. I work in the care sector and cant say im not a tadge nervous. Im also worried about my cats if anything should happen. Cant help it. Strangely enough though my Meditation/Nembutsu practice has become more peaceful and deeper. Reliance and refuge is…[Read more]

    • Hi Clare – did you attend a service yet? If not hope to see you soon. Yes, that’s tough – very appropriate to have some fear. And, Amida will look after you whatever happens. Sending love from here, Namo Amida Bu x

    Just watched Dharmavidya’s talk on solitude. I found it very inspiring and I felt a sense of ease and acceptance because I find myself very much alone these days. Often feeling there is something wrong with this when in fact it can be very useful for the practice. I do go out to work and that’s enough interaction for me. The things people talk…[Read more]
