As you quiet your mind, you begin to see the different components of your being and which ones are out of harmony. For example, at times you can feel that your body is pulling on you. It’s draining your energy, or the muscles need strengthening or relaxing.

Remember that your body is the temple of your spirit, work with it, doing things that release or balance energy. Hatha yoga, the yoga of energy, can be used as a path to the soul. Forming an asana is talking to God. Also, be mindful of what you are putting into your body. The human body is a manifestation of God. Honor it.

Via Daily Dharma: Creating a World of Interdependence

Buddhists have a role to play… in creating a different vision of America that is from the start about multiplicity and not singularity, from the start about interdependence.

Via Daily Dharma: Sitting with the Unpredictable

Right concentration does not want us to get attached to it. It does not want us to turn it into an object of worship. Use it to free yourself, but don’t turn it into another thing. Allow it to remain unpredictable.

Via Coisa do JapĆ£o // Templo budista em Saitama realiza casamentos LGBTQIA+


Saimyouji, em Saitama, torna-se o segundo templo budista conhecido no JapĆ£o a promover abertamente casamentos LGBTQIA+, seguindo o exemplo do templo Shunkoin de Kyoto.
Saimyouji @Tokyo Weekender
No JapĆ£o hĆ” templos e santuĆ”rios em praticamente todo lugar. Apesar disso, menos de 40% da populaĆ§Ć£o japonesa se identifica com alguma religiĆ£o, sendo que a maioria deles se afirma budista.
Atualmente, pode-se dizer que os templos budistas operam mais como negĆ³cios do que como local para receber orientaĆ§Ć£o espiritual. Ao contrĆ”rio do budismo na ƍndia, onde a religiĆ£o se originou, o budismo japonĆŖs Ć© mais conhecido como “budismo fĆŗnebre”, pois em muitos casos apenas os serviƧos funerĆ”rios estĆ£o disponĆ­veis ao pĆŗblico.

O templo Saimyouji, em Kawagoe, Saitama-ken, com uma histĆ³ria de quase 800 anos pretende se destacar do resto graƧas aos esforƧos de seu recĆ©m-nomeado sacerdote chefe Senda Akihiro.
Senda Akihiro, 57Āŗ sacerdote-chefe de Saimyouji, passou dois anos na ƍndia estudando e praticando o budismo sob a orientaĆ§Ć£o de seu mentor indiano antes de herdar o templo de seu pai.
“Quero abrir meu templo para todo mundo, seja japonĆŖs ou estrangeiro”, diz Senda em entrevista ao site Tokyo Weekender. “O objetivo de todas as religiƵes, incluindo o budismo, Ć© ajudar as pessoas.”

Via Neem Karoli Baba Ashram // GURU PURNIMA ON SITE CANCELLED



 

GURU PURIMA ON SITE CELEBRATION CANCELLED
This is a retraction of yesterday's email. 

 

Ram Ram,
Dear Devotees

It is with deep regret and sadness that the Ashram is cancelling the on-site Guru Purnima celebration scheduled for Saturday July 4, 2020. Upon the advice of our consulting epidemiologist, Dr. Larry Brilliant, a longtime devotee of Maharaj-ji, who guided his participation in the World Health Organization’s eradication of small pox in the 1970’s, we must revise our previous email regarding Guru Purnima celebrations and offerings.  It is the wiser course for all devotees to refrain from premature visits to the ashram for darshan currently to prevent the potential spread of the covid 19 coronavirus.  

Please join us for the virtual livestream Guru Purnima celebration that will be streamed from the Neem Karoli Baba Ashram on Taos Facebook page.   https://www.facebook.com/events/2635774179997921/

We look forward to the time in the future when it is safe to gather and pray together again in the mandir. It is the better course to celebrate Guru Purnima now by looking within our hearts, saving darshan at the Ashram for a later time when the risk has passed.

Via Daily Dharma: Pay Attention to Your Movement

When we pay attention to our movement, our minds and bodies become integrated. We relax. We become calm, concentrated, and as a result, joyful. It makes us happy to pay attention when we move.
