    Thank you, Andrew. Springs are wonderful and they do bring peace.

    Glad you like it, Satya; if one is in proximity, it really worths a visit.

  • Beautiful reading, thank you

    Hi everybody,   I've been recently on a wonderful vacation in central Italy. I shot this two photos in a really heavenly place called "Le fonti del Clitunno" ("The springs of Clitunno river"), in Umbria . Somehow, spring waters bring me a sense of deep calm and wonder...

  • Hi Ken. Thank you very much, I’m really honoured by your words! Gassho

  • “it is vital to remain aware of one’s own frailty and limitations”: a beautiful,  very deep teaching in plain, simple words. Thank you.

    Ken, now I’m finally able to listen your music with my laptop! Very nice, rockin’ psychobilly! And I really like the bass sound!!

    Hi Ken

    that’s cool. Mine’s is   https://www.facebook.com/skydogspowerblues/

     

    Hope you like it 🙂

  • Hi Ken, it could be a cool title for a book “do nembutsu, be a better bass player”!

    I agree: it’s a matter of practice – and again, it clashes with my idleness 🙂   Altough I love to play the bass, I do not practice much at home. My main goal is to play what the band needs, building a strong wall of sound together with the drummer. Besides t…[Read more]

  • Hi Ken, that’s cool! I mean, I never played a fretless and, honestly, I don’t think I would be able to. I’m also sorry for your back pain, hope you’ll be better soon.

    Well, I consider myself more of a “rough” player. I am really into those old style, heavy sounds of players like Felix Pappalardi from Mountain, for example. I play in a power-blues…[Read more]

  • Hi everybody,

    here I am, in late as usual 🙂 nice to ear it form you Ken! So you are a bass player too?

    Hi Adamo,

    how are you doing? First of all,  than you for your kind words. As I wrote to Satya, my transalations are far from being perfect, but it’s a beginning…well, I guess we can open up a space in this online community with the italian translations of the texts. Here we got the writers and the priests, it’s the better place in my humble…[Read more]

    Hi,
    how are you doing? I’ve tried to send this as a private message to Satya and Adamo, but of course I have failed 🙂

    At the moment, I’ve transalted the summary of faith and a chapter from ”just as you are”. I can post them on these pages, of course
    I was thinking if Adamo would like to create and manage the fb italian group. I can do some other…[Read more]

    Of course, I will email the translation as soon as possibile. I’ve translated also the chapter “A first taste of Pureland Buddhism” from the book “Just as you are”. I just have to check them both better (I am a bit of a perfectionist when it comes to writing 🙂 ).

    Here’s the Summary of Faith & Practice in Italian (Adamo, please check for any wording error, thanks 🙂 )

    SOMMARIO DI FEDE & PRATICA

    Hi Satya and Adamo,
    I can post it somewhere here (Satya please let me know where it fits better). I hope I haven’t made too many translation mistakes 🙂 Well, we could talk on skype, but I have to tell you that my spoken english is not so flowing 🙂
    By the way, how about trying to start a facebook page in italian? Of course, it would be wonderful…[Read more]

    Hi Vittorio,
    thank you very much, and greetings to you too. Yes, it would be a great idea to set up an Italian Sangha: as you wrote, we could start online, with the patronage of Friends of Amida and/or the Amida Trust (Satya, it is possible?).

  • Paolo posted a new activity comment 6 months, 1 week ago

    Yes Satya, it was me. Well, at the moment I’ve translated the summary of Faith & Practice from the Nien Fo book: it’s not very much, but it’s a beginning 🙂
    Well, I’ll surely let you know, because I don’t even know how to start it. I mean, given the fact that we italian members of this community are spread all along the Country, I guess that an…[Read more]

    • Ah, that’s wonderful – are you happy for us to use it? I’m wondering about starting a page for translations… If you’d like a Skype sometime to talk about the possibility of starting a group, just let me know – satya@satyarobyn.com. You could ask for support from other teachers – they may be preoccupied with their own groups, but maybe not! They…[Read more]

      • Dear friends, Reading these intentions is a great joy, May the name of Amida reach the Italian people, Namu Amida Bu
