A prayer for all those in great distress after the shooting in Conneticut

This came from Tricycle the Buddhist Review daily Dharma.

I think this could be adapted for many distressing situations

It is almost impossible, no, it is impossible, to have any idea how to react to a tragedy as profound and senseless as the one that occurred today at an elementary…

Metta to all beings

Just found this lovely metta verse - I think maybe we will start to use it in our services. 

For those without feet, I have love.

I have love for all with two feet.

For those with four feet, I have love.

I have love for all with many feet.

May those without feet do me no harm.

May none with two feet do me harm.

May those with four feet do me no…

One Year Old

Today Tariki Trust is a year old.

What a year! It was hard to imagine on 12th December 2011 when a small group of us gathered in the sitting room of The Buddhist House for the signing of the Tariki trust deed how things would be by now, but I think if we had had a crystal ball, we would have been well pleased. A few weeks ago our charity number came through and we are now official. So, with this auspicious day in mind, I want to write and thank you all for your help through…

Tariki Refuge Ceremony

Have you ever watched a large flock of birds wheeling and turning in the sky? It is a magnificent sight. Like a single organism, an organic form, fluid and transparent, yet taking on shape and density, they weave and roll in a collective dance. This image of birds in flight came to me strongly as I thought of Tariki and the new developments this weekend.

This weekend a group of seven of us came together to affirm our Buddhist refuges and to commit ourselves to practice and mutual…

Grounded in Faith: Psychotherapy and Pureland - paper presented at European Shin Conference 2012

Grounded in Faith: Psychotherapy and Pureland

Since the time of the Buddha people have looked to Buddhism as a source of salvation from their unhappiness and confusion. In the modern age, psychotherapy has become a route which many people choose to help them face and move beyond their personal suffering. Not surprisingly many Western therapists tend to gravitate towards Buddhist ideas and, conversely, Buddhists are often interested in exploring how their faith…

Running Tide Article
