  • Buddha statues at famed Nikko temple return after restoration

    Buddhachannel 29/06/2016

    Buddha statues at famed Nikko temple return after restoration The return of the Senju Kannon, forefront, on June 24 brings together the three main Buddha statues at Nikkozan Rinnoji temple. (Takashi Kajiyama) NIKKO, Tochigi Prefecture—Three huge statues of a sitting Buddha at Nikkozan Rinnoji temple are back in their rightful place—center stage—after undergoing four years of restoration work. The sparkling golden statues were unveiled June 24 to the delight of tourists to the World Heritage site. A little more work needs to be done, however, on the Bato Kannon (Horse-headed Kannon bodhisattva, goddess of mercy), the Amida Nyorai (Amitabha), and Senju Kannon (1,000-armed Kannon bodhisattva). The three statutes were[…]

  • L'incroyable rencontre au sommet entre Lady Gaga et… le Dalaï-lama !

    Buddhachannel 29/06/2016

    L'incroyable rencontre au sommet entre Lady Gaga et… le Dalaï-lama ! Connue pour ses happenings qui la font faussement passer pour une dérangée, Lady Gaga est surtout une artiste engagée qui met régulièrement sa notoriété au service des causes qu'elle soutient. Après l'attaque terroriste contre un club gay de Orlando, l'interprète de Poker Face, bouleversée, a plusieurs fois pris la parole pour défendre la communauté LGBT. Soutenant Hillary Clinton, candidate démocrate à la Maison blanche, elle a récemment écrit une lettre avec 180 autres artistes au Congrès américain pour renforcer le contrôle des armes. Ce dimanche 26 juin, Lady Gaga par ailleurs fait le déplacement à Indianapolis dans le cadre d'une[…]

Il s'inscrit au collège en 1934, et une fois diplômé, intègre l'université de Fort[…]

  • Bee-keeping : a true rural economy

    Buddhachannel 29/06/2016

    Bee-keeping : a true rural economy Honey and apiculture have had a long history in India. Indeed, paintings dating back from the prehistoric era and representing ancient apiculture methods, were found in Indian caves. Honey was considered as sacred food by the forests' inhabitants. Then, with the development of civilization, honey acquired a unique status in the life of Indian elders. Thus, it was considered like a magical substance that controlled the fecundity of women, bo-vines, as well as land and cultures. Because of the Indian forest's wealth, apiculture developed because the raw material necessary for the honey production was available for free next to nature.[…]

  • Insecurity

    The Buddha's Advice to Laypeople 28/06/2016

    Insecurity Friends, in a short span of time the USA was rocked by its biggest ever act of domestic terrorism/gun violence and the United Kingdom voted to leave the European Union. Economic, political, and social systems around the world seem to be in crisis. If we have taken refuge in the Buddha, Dhamma and Sangha, how are we to relate to major events such as these? The point is to see that the conditioned realm is something to contemplate and understand rather than to make assumptions about it or try to control and bend it to our desires and will. The more we try[…]

  • Heedfulness

    The Buddha's Advice to Laypeople 23/06/2016

    Heedfulness The subject of intoxicants can be fraught. Perfectly reasonable people can use alcohol or marijuana as an everyday tonic, with no apparent ill result. However, suggest that they take a “vacation” from their intoxicant of choice and watch the fireworks. We form an intimate attachment to the things we use to sooth ourselves. Let me be clear that I do not include prescription drugs, used as directed, in this category. Sometimes drug or alcohol addiction becomes a problem that can’t be hidden. It can result in an inability to function in ordinary life: family relationships dissolve, work becomes problematic. Anyone who knows a[…]

  • Compassionate speech

    The Buddha's Advice to Laypeople 18/06/2016

    Compassionate speech There are many paths to awakening, and practicing the Buddha’s ethical trainings is a particularly accessible one. Starting from where we are, we can continuously refine our practice right up to a breakthrough of understanding. Monitoring our speech can progress from (1) listening to ourselves to (2) filtering which impulses (to speak) actually produce words and which are set aside, to (3) hearing the quality of our thoughts before they are articulated and, within our minds, cultivating the wholesome and abandoning the unwholesome. A test we can use when developing right speech is to ask ourselves these questions: Are my[…]

  • Words matter

    The Buddha's Advice to Laypeople 13/06/2016

    Words matter The Buddha’s fourth training rule may be the most challenging and the most rewarding. When we are killing sentient beings, we know we’re killing. When we take something that’s not clearly ours, it’s a specific action. There is a moment (or more) of deliberation before we indulge in sexual misconduct. But talking? Where’s the filter? We are so deeply identified with our speech, and our words are so intimately connected with our thinking, that we often feel that we’re not choosing to speak, it just happens. The training regarding speech offers many rewards: We can create harmony rather than discord between people[…]

  • Sex and culture

    The Buddha's Advice to Laypeople 08/06/2016

    Sex and culture From David Brook’s NY Times column titled “Let’s Have a Better Culture War”: “If public life were truly infused with the sense that people have souls, we would educate young people to have vocations and not just careers. We would comfortably tell them that sex is a fusion of loving souls and not just a physical act. We’d celebrate marriage as a covenantal bond. We’d understand that citizenship is a covenant, too, and we have a duty to feel connected to those who disagree with us.”… …”If we talked as if people had souls, then we’d have a thick [not[…]

  • Vesak 2016/2559

    AppamādaNet 23/05/2016

    Vesak 2016/2559 «Nuestras mentes son moldeadas por lo que admiramos. No podemos evitarlo, comenzamos a pensar como nuestros héroes, sea éste un héroe de fútbol, una estrella de la canción o un activista humanitario. El correcto refugio budista está simplemente constituido por objetos cada vez más elevados para nuestra capacidad de admiración. A medida que crece, nuestra admiración por objetos menores disminuirá con facilidad; esta es la evolución natural y orgánica de la conciencia, una elevación sin esfuerzo.» –Domo Geshe Rinpoche

  • Waking Up, Growing Up, and Showing Up*

    Awakening Truth 12/05/2016

    Waking Up, Growing Up, and Showing Up* A Desire to Wake Up I remember vividly my feelings when I first came in contact with Buddhist teachings. I was 17 years old, in a lecture hall at University of California at Santa Cruz. What I heard was so clear and made so much sense, I thought if I practiced diligently, and could awaken sufficiently, then I wouldn’t suffer any more. I was on fire with the possibility of giving my life to awakening. During that class and in the ensuing decades listening to talks about meditation practice and it’s goal – enlightenment, I heard of meditation masters who[…]

  • When We Live in No Man’s Land

    Awakening Truth 21/04/2016

    When We Live in No Man’s Land     By Amma Thanasanti Bhikkhuni   I live in no man’s land, right next to a piece of road that is unincorporated by the county. Sandwiched between the cities of Colorado Springs and Manitou Springs, it seems to belong to no one. In England I was part of a large community of monastics in a well-established tradition with excellent support. I left all this behind when I returned to the US seven years ago. Now I live in a hermitage, with one other bhikkhuni but without a community of other Buddhist monastics nearby, and in a place where wearing[…]

  • Love and belonging By Ayya Dhammadhira

    Awakening Truth 12/04/2016

    Love and belonging By Ayya Dhammadhira By Ayya Dhammadhira Love and belonging are essential to the well-being of all humans as well as to other species. When I feel love and belonging, I am joyful, content and satisfied. I also feel purposeful and willing to contribute. This is because love and belonging is not a one way street. I have come to the realization that the thing that matters most to me in this life is to love and be loved. While at first this may sound simplistic or even narcissistic, it is really quite profound and all-encompassing. As two sides of a whole, giving and[…]
