  • Thanksgiving Blessings: A Temporary Vihara in Santa Rosa

    Awakening Truth 25/11/2015

    Thanksgiving Blessings: A Temporary Vihara in Santa Rosa I left Colorado mid October. Plan was that Ayya Dhammadhira and I would travel together for a week then I would start a meandering trip on the West Coast that included visiting Mom, and many teaching engagements in Oregon and northern and southern California. The last stop and a deeply cherished one was the Kathina ceremony at the Karuna Buddhist Vihara that Ayya Santussika leads. Ayya Dhammadhira and I were going to meet up there and travel home together the next day. Kathina did happen and with 7 Bhikkhunis present was a very inspiring event. But plans don’t always work[…]

  • Harmonious speech

    The Buddha's Advice to Laypeople 25/11/2015

    Harmonious speech After truthfulness, the next subdivision of right speech is speech that is not divisive, that doesn’t set people apart from each other. What could be more relevant today? The temptation to think and talk about “those  terrorists” who are so different from us that they don’t even value life, is all around us. We are invited to fear and condemn “the other”, whether it is jihadists or asylum seekers. Once we allow the view of “us versus them” to take hold in our minds, intentions of ill will are not far behind. For this reason, guarding our speech is a duty we must[…]

  • In memory of Anna Winther

    Welcome to the Buddhist Society of WA - Dhammaloka Centre 22/11/2015

    Sadly, Anna Winther was one of the three foreign nationals who died in the Esperance bushfire of 17 Nov 2015. She was a regular at Dhammaloka and active in the Kaliyana Mitta group of young Buddhists. She was 29 years old and was studying a Masters degree by research, although taking time off from her studies to work in Esperance to fulfill her visa requirements. She was a beautiful woman with profound intelligence and a kind heart, and will be missed.This is an article for the Curtin University newspaper, which she wrote as part of her journalism degree which we[…]

  • Truthfulness

    The Buddha's Advice to Laypeople 20/11/2015

    Truthfulness In the Pali canon, right speech has four parts: (1) truthfulness, (2) harmonious (not divisive) speech, (3) gentle (not harsh) speech, and (4) meaningful (not useless) speech. Often the first type of right speech is used as shorthand for all four categories, and as we saw in the previous post (but one) truthfulness is the first principal; if words are not truthful, the Buddha would not speak them. Right speech is a key to continuous mindfulness: we watch our words for their truthfulness (or un-) with as few lapses of attention as possible. As with doing anything with great care,[…]

  • Extra – events in France

    The Buddha's Advice to Laypeople 14/11/2015

    Extra – events in France Dear friends, Today I interrupt your regularly scheduled program to reflect on events of the past 48 hours in France. Many wise and useful things have been said, but this is the basis of my contemplation: What are they fighting about? About their perception of the world. These words are taken from a talk by Ajahn Sumedho, “The Need for Wisdom in the World”. It answers the question: Why does anyone fight? People fight because their perception of the world leads them to a position where fighting seems reasonable. The question of what creates those perceptions is impossible to answer[…]

  • What would the Buddha say?

    The Buddha's Advice to Laypeople 12/11/2015

    What would the Buddha say? One of the most useful roles of hiri and ottappa (conscience and concern – see previous post) is in protecting our speech. While we might think long and hard before committing a deliberate act, our words sometimes flow out in a torrent with no filtering gates. There are a few different ways in which the Buddha described Right Speech, but let’s start with a checklist. In the canonical text quoted below, the Tathagata is a name for the Buddha, approximately “thus gone”. He frames his lesson to a prince by covering every variant of speech being true or untrue and[…]

  • Message from the President

    Welcome to the Buddhist Society of WA - Dhammaloka Centre 07/11/2015

    Dear Members, BSWA can be proud to say that we have made a major breakthrough in obtaining permanent visa applications for our monks and nuns who have taken the vow of poverty and have been instrumental in the change of policy guidelines in Australia for visa applications for our Sangha. Background Since 2009, BSWA and all Sangha throughout Australia, have had problems obtaining permanent visas. Unlike clergy of other mainstream religions who are paid a salary, our Sangha would never have been able to meet the minimum wage requirement because of their vow of poverty. This made it impossible for[…]

  • Living with others

    The Buddha's Advice to Laypeople 07/11/2015

    Living with others Like the Roman god Janus, every person faces simultaneously in two opposite directions. With one face of our consciousness we gaze in upon ourselves and become aware of ourselves as individuals motivated by a deep urge to avoid suffering and to secure our own well-being and happiness. With the other face we gaze out upon the world and discover that our lives are thoroughly relational, that we exist as nodes in a vast net of relationships with other beings whose fate is tied up with our own. Because of the relational structure of our existence, we are engaged in a[…]

  • Ultimate Dhammapada

    Theravadin 10/09/2015

    Ultimate Dhammapada The Theravada Tipitaka Press has recently released a new book in their series of bilingual Pali primers. In case you are unfamiliar with the concept: In South-East Asia traditionally to learn the “sacred” language of the Buddha beginning students would be encouraged to read the Buddha’s words in a text that is interspersed with the original Pali language. This “sentence-by-sentence” bilingual reading style (see image on the right) was considered to prime your mind to really let the source languge, in this case Pali, – its syntax and semantics – sink into the readers mind. Even nowadays, if you happen to[…]

  • End of Suffering – The Great Bell Chant

    Theravadin 05/09/2015

    End of Suffering – The Great Bell Chant One of the most wonderful spiritual videos that I’ve seen in the last 5 years of awakening, including the deepest universal message of the Creation and the cosmos, A balsam for the connected human soul with wonderful visions of Mother Earth. Gaia is happy again with us, the humans who are lifting the energies of our living planet to universal levels. God bless the maker of this great video. I shared it everywhere I could. Thank you brothers and sisters. God-Speed. Peace on Earth. Love Light Life. Unconditional Love Reigns. May the Sound of this Bell Penetrate deep into the[…]

  • Zhiyi and Bodhidharma

    Theravadin 05/09/2015

    There is a beautiful translation of the Mohechikuang available. The translation was done by Bhikkhu Dhammapala who was also working on the Gandhara texts some time. In case you don’t know who Zhiyi was, here a little Buddhist history: A contemporary of Bodhidharma (the Indian monk who founded Chan/ZEN in China) Zhiyi was a Chinese monk who practice samatha-vipassana, in the very spirit of the Tipitaka, well, in accordance with the Prakrit-Sanskrit-Chinese translation of the same. He went into the mountains and practiced with some friends for years and then wrote a couple of books on proper samatha-vipassana meditation still kept in[…]

  • Walking towards freedom

    Theravadin 04/09/2015

    Here is a very beautiful description by the Buddha on the progressive stages a meditator goes through until he realizes Nirvana. It sheds some additional light on the progress of insight meditation which the later commentary literature called “insight-knowledges” or “vipassana nyana”. It is not easy to spot these gems in the suttas (discourses of the Buddha) because you do have to know what you are looking at. Without further ado, vipassana nyana’s in the words of the Buddha: Udayi, there are four persons evident in the world. What are the four? Udayi, a certain person falls to the method of dispelling[…]

  • The Imaginariums of the Nuns: Days That Are Past and Futures That May Yet Be

    Sujato’s Blog 10/08/2015

    The Imaginariums of the Nuns: Days That Are Past and Futures That May Yet Be Here’s the paper I presented at the recent Sakyadhita conference in Yogyakarta. It may be the last piece of writing I publish for a while, so enjoy. Nuns exist only in the imagination. When I close my eyes, and focus on what is real, there are no nuns there. Nor, for that matter, are there any monks, or lay people, or anyone else. So if we are to talk about any of these kinds of people, we are telling a story—a story that has some relation to fact, we hope, but where the facts are filled in with copious amounts[…]
