  • Buddhism Food, Diet, and Cooking

    Buddhachannel 03/07/2015

    Buddhism Food, Diet, and Cooking There are not very many dietary rules in Buddhism, but fasting or feasting on holidays is common. Buddhists believe in reincarnation, including the possibility of humans being reborn as animals and vice-versa. Consequently, they do not wish to harm living creatures, and many Buddhists are vegetarians. However, meat is not completely forbidden in Buddhist doctrines. Buddha advised monks that meat should be eaten only when the animal had not been specifically killed for consumption. Meat is eaten in small quantities in some Buddhist countries, where it may be obtained from Muslim butchers. Buddhists in Thailand, Myanmar, and Malaysia are more[…]

  • Bonsai combines art with horticulture

    Buddhachannel 03/07/2015

    Bonsai combines art with horticulture Love at first sight is the best way to describe Dan O'Neal's attraction to bonsai trees.O'Neal, senior development officer in the office of Institutional Advancement at Converse College, bought his first bonsai plant on his honeymoon 35 years ago in Hilton Head.Since that time, he has studied under bonsai masters and worked countless hours watering, pruning and shaping the trees into works of art. His background as a wildlife biologist helps, but he still needed classes and training with experts.“I bought my first bonsai tree because I thought it was nice,” he said. “These trees mimic nature. You can take[…]

  • Soyen Shaku on Non-Ego

    Buddha Space 26/06/2015

    Soyen Shaku on Non-Ego Soyen Shaku (釈 宗演, 1860 – 1919) A favorite parable used by Buddhists to illustrate the unreality of soul or self (I take these two meaning the same thing), is that of the house. The house is composed of the roof, walls, posts, floor, windows, and so forth. Now, take each one of these apart, and we have no such thing as a house, which appeared to have a permanent actuality a while ago. The house did not have any independent existence outside the material whose combination only in a certain form makes it possible. From the beginning there was no house-soul or[…]

  • Buddha Space & Grief

    Buddha Space 16/06/2015

    Grief comes to us all. Perhaps a family member, a partner, a child, a friend or a pet has left you in past few years. Perhaps more than one. This author has lived long enough to see a number of the above loved ones pass away, the most recent being my beloved grandmother. The sense of loss, once the numbness had dissipated somewhat, was heart-wrenching. A deeply-loved woman by all in her family, her departure, though not entirely unexpected, came earlier than any of us expected. This happened six months ago, and though the waves of grief are becoming less[…]

  • Faces of meditation

    Sujato’s Blog 14/06/2015

    Faces of meditation Have you ever tried doing a Google image search for “meditation”? It’s a somewhat depressing experience. Apparently meditators are young, slim, pretty, and only meditate on mountaintops and beaches. And what’s with all the silhouettes? Wouldn’t it be nice if images of meditators looked like actual meditators? And so, announcing my latest grand venture: #facesofmeditation! We took some photos at a recent meditation group—with permission of course—and I’ve uploaded them to twitter. If you’ve got any #facesofmeditation to share, let’s see them.

  • Retreat with Sayadaw U Jagara

    Santi Forest Monastery 11/06/2015

    Retreat with Sayadaw U Jagara The Santi nuns and a few dedicated lay practitioners just came out of a wonderful one month intensive meditation retreat with the Canadian teacher Sayadaw U Jagara. He has been a monk for 36 years and his gentle presence and vast knowledge boosted everyone’s meditation practise. Daily dhamma talks and group sittings brought a very peaceful atmosphere to Santi and helped deepen our understanding of the path. We deeply appreciated his stay at Santi and hope he will be able to come back next year. A big thank you goes to all supporters whose generous contributions made this retreat possible.

  • Ajahn Anan on Getting to Know the Mind

    Buddha Space 06/06/2015

    Ajahn Anan on Getting to Know the Mind Ajahn Anan (1954-present): A mindful smileWhen we first come to meditate, we will notice quite quickly that even sitting for a minute seems almost impossible. All we get is restlessness and agitation. With practice though, we will soon be able to sit for longer periods. Five minutes, ten minutes, fifteen minutes—eventually we will be able to sit for half an hour with ease. Sometimes the meditation is peaceful, other times not, but in the beginning stages the key element is patience.It’s important to see that the five hindrances to peace in the mind—sensual desire, ill will, dullness, restlessness, doubt—are not[…]

    AppamādaNet 27/05/2015

    18 razones con base científica para probar la meditación de benevolencia hoy mismo Por Emma Seppälä – Muchos de nosotros hemos oído hablar sobre los beneficios de la meditación. Incluso es posible que hayamos intentado meditar un par de veces. Y muchos lo encontraremos difícil y llegaremos a la conclusión de que «la meditación no es para mí». Pero ¡espera! ¿Sabías que existen muchas formas de meditación? Hay meditaciones con mantras, con visualizaciones, de enfoque abierto, basadas en la respiración y muchas más. Sólo debes encontrar el zapato que te calce. Una manera fácil de comenzar es la que evoca un estado muy natural en nosotros: la benevolencia. Leer más

  • Shodo Harada on the Eye of Emptiness

    Shodo Harada on the Eye of Emptiness Shodo Harada (原田 正道, c. 1940): Buddha eyesTwice the terrorists have attacked London, and even now the horror of those attacks has not allowed life to return to normal. The fear continues. Those who were killed were written about in the paper, while those who survived are filled with the possibility of their own deaths.  It is said that humans can become buddhas, but they can also become devils. Those possibilities seem apparent when something like this happens.When people, through no fault of their own, are killed by those who are so dissatisfied and discontent, the entire world becomes a battlefield.[…]

  • Buddha's Ten Duties of a Leader

    Buddha Space 24/05/2015

    Buddha's Ten Duties of a Leader Do any of these leaders live up to Buddha's teachings?Here in Thailand, society is subject to the same political vicissitudes found the world over. In recent years, this lovely country has seen turbulent times involving successive governments, claims of corruption, incompetence, and favouritism thrown around on a daily basis. The present military junta is not above such accusations either. If this predominately Buddhist nation is to progress in the future, it requires sound political leadership. But, how should Thailand expect its future elected leader to behave? Well, Buddhism does have a set of guidelines for kings, which in the modern[…]

  • Introduction to Satipatthana: a meditation retreat with Bhante Sujato

    Sujato’s Blog 20/05/2015

    Introduction to Satipatthana: a meditation retreat with Bhante Sujato The Satipatthana Sutta, or “The Discourse on the Establishing of Mindfulness” (MN 10, DN22) is perhaps the most influential of all the discourses in the Early Buddhist Texts. Bhante Sujato has been practicing mindfulness based on this sutta for over 20 years, as part of which he researched and wrote one of the most innovative and comprehensive texts on the subject, A History of Mindfulness. His approach to satipatthana pays full attention to teachings on mindfulness found outside the Satipatthana Sutta, and indeed outside the Pali canon. This retreat will be your last opportunity to learn and experience these teachings[…]

  • Copy this

    Sujato’s Blog 19/05/2015

    Copy this Copyright is a big deal. There’s hardly a single computer user who hasn’t faced the possibility of using or creating content that infringes copyright. And it is a huge deal in the area of Buddhist texts, where many texts are protected under some form of copyright law. I’m going to make a somewhat complex argument here, so let me state my conclusions up front. I think copyright is a bad idea. I think we would be better off without it. But regardless of whether it has certain applications in some areas, it contradicts fundamental Buddhist principles and should never be[…]

  • Día Internacional Buddhista - 8 de Abril


    Día Internacional Buddhista - 8 de Abril Durante la Sexta Cumbre Mundial Buddhista realizada en Japón durante el 8 al 13 de abril 2014, se gestaron importantes intervenciones de parte de muchos líderes buddhistas a nivel mundial (leer el comunicado conjunto de la Sexta Cumbre Mundial Buddhista firmado por representantes de cuarenta y un países).
