    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

    Hi Satya, Im okay at present, the lock down doesnt bother me as I dont engage in much out there anyway. And my line of work means I can still get out and about. Yes plan to drop in on one of the classes soon. I have been working a lot lately and getting quite tired. Getting old see!. Hope all you guys are doing okay and thanks for touching base.…[Read more]

    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]

    Had a lovely visit to the Temple last weekend. Re – took my refuge vows and received a lovely sash called a “wagessa” which I need to sow an Amida sunset symbol in chain stitch. Havn’t done that since juniors. Will face the challenge!. Came home to 3 hunger striking cats. One of which decided not to come home for ages despite me going out and…[Read more]

    Have just enjoyed the teaching by Dharmavidya – Post mappo. He is always laughing which I like. It helps lighten the mood and loosen up a bit which is a lot about this teaching. Recommend. Namo Amida Bu

    Looking forward to my visit to The Temple in January. Not much into xmass though. Im very much in the mind set that things should only be given to those who need it and not to those who don’t. Plus with the environmental issues I don’t see many people listening but just carrying on as usual. Have a nice time but just cut down a bit or a lot! Namo Amida Bu

    I went to a lovely White Tara blessing empowerment last Saturday in Southampton. I use to engage in this practice many years ago and recently came back to me. I felt a connection with Tara as did others like a tingly fizzy feeling touching my whole body and a feeling of joy. I cant say what was going on here but I know in my heart this was far…[Read more]

    Very pleased that I have completed the Pure Land course. It was a real achievement for me as never been one for study. Its clear that if we are interested in some thing that there is a lot more motivation and success. This course has been a great tool in keeping a connection with the Amida Sangha and Amida. I have learnt a lot also. A big Thank…[Read more]
