Buddha's World & Buddhism Hi Stumblers! Please see my spiritual newsletter My focus is not on rituals, symbolism or gods, but on the path that Buddhism points to and its vision on the nature of our every day "reality". Texts on the nature of the Buddhist path, texts on the nature of reality (see emptiness), karma, and texts on meditation. As the title suggests different Buddhist lineages are represented here. Amongst them Tibetan Buddhism and Zen. Of living teachers of Buddhism, material by Thich Nhat Hanh,the Dalai Lama has been included here, among many others. Katinka Hesselink

Learning Meditation Home Page JEU (Réunion - 974) Historiquement, l’humanité à commencé par utiliser le troc, c’est-à-dire un échange direct entre deux personnes. Quand cette simultanéité n’est pas possible, on utilise une promesse verbale ou écrite, un accord chiffré qui dit « oui » et « combien ». Si la promesse écrite est ensuite utilisée lors d’un échange avec une tierce personne, elle devient une monnaie... C’est-à-dire un moyen d’échange multilatéral, différé et écrit. L’argent est un type de monnaie reconnue par une autorité régionale, nationale ou internationale qui utilise des pièces de métal (or, argent, cuivre, bronze, nickel, etc.) ou des billets de papier. La solution JEU... Ce nouveau type de monnaie a été conçu et mis en place par feu Daniel Fargeas, du Sud de la France, en 1998. Non seulement nous y brisons l’isolement à travers des rencontres intéressantes et enrichissantes, mais nous faisons des prises de conscience qui nous amènent à consommer de façon plus éclairée et conséquente.

Anger "It is natural for the immature to harm others. Getting angry with them is like resenting a fire for burning." Shantideva Once upon a time there was a little boy with a bad temper. His father gave him a bag of nails and told him that every time he lost his temper, he should hammer a nail in the fence. The first day the boy had driven 37 nails into the fence. The definition of Aversion is: Exaggerated wanting to be separated from someone or something. The basic problem according to Buddhism, is that emotions like anger and hatred are based on projections and exaggeration, not on objectivity or wisdom, and thus basically incorrect. As His Holiness the Dalai Lama mentioned: "When reason ends, then anger begins. Is anger or hatred ever justified? "'Righteous hatred' is in the same category as 'righteous cancer'or 'righteous tuberculosis'. And as Khenpo Konchog Gyaltsen Rinpoche mentioned: "Some people feel patience is showing weakness or pessimism. ^Top of Page What forgiveness is

Mindfulness for Beginners: Dispelling 7 Myths of Meditation. “If you ask why we meditate, I would say it’s so we can become more flexible and tolerant to the present moment.”~ Pema Chodron Are you intrigued by meditation and mindfulness practices but don’t know how to get started? Mindfulness is available to all of us. Everyone deserves mindfulness, but because our lives are so hectic and full of distractions, many of us are living in a state of mindlessness. Mindfulness can begin in the form of seated meditation and then expanded to include our other daily activities. Because meditation and mindfulness have become so mainstream, there are many misleading myths around these subjects. 1. Like pretty much everything in life, mindfulness takes practice. Mindful sittingI recommend beginning with at least five minutes of formal seated meditation each day. The beauty of mindfulness is that it can be with us in every moment.

Miroir de Fées La lune est l'astre féminin symbolisant la sensibilité, l'imaginaire, la fécondité...La rune correspondant à la Lune est Lagu, qui ouvre sur un univers perceptible par les âmes sensibles, réceptrices..Lagu, c'est la Dame du Lac, qui conseille en secret et confie l'épée de l'action....Il y a dans cet astre une force d'inertie qui permet à l'être de ressentir avant d'agir, et par là même, l'action est différente que si elle avait été menée sans ce ressenti.Il ne faut pas avoir peur de laisser la Lune exprimer nos émotions, nos larmes, comme elle permet à la mer de venir sur le sable, et se retirer, car elle gère tous les cycles de la Vie, de l'Etre et de la Terre... A l’heure où meurt le jour dans un soupir bleutéOù les roses ternissent pour mieux se préserverQuand les derniers sons fuient, par le sommeil chassés,Je suis au creux de moi, et me laisse à rêver… Dulce Luna Extrait de "Le Miroir Intérieur" Chantal Duros

Wildmind Buddhist Meditation - Learn Meditation Online untitled Jemepropose | Petites annonces pour grands talents The Thirteen Mindfulness Trainings The Thirteen Mindfulness Trainings form the moral guidelines to develop harmony in any simple community. One of the essential elements of the Mindfulness Trainings is that they are directly applied in our daily lives. Every moment of our lives gives us the chance to put them into practice. The idea is to recite the Mindfulness Trainings regularly so that we can review our behaviour and observe where we have not lived up to our aspirations. It is important that we observe rather than judge ourselves, so that gradually, without resistance, our lives become imbued with the qualities they represent. Understanding (prajna), concentration (samadhi) and Mindfulness Trainings or ethics (sila) are the threefold trainings that the Buddha passed on to his lay students. The encounter between Eastern philosophies and the West is bringing us something very exciting, very important. The Thirteen Mindfulness Trainings comes from different sources. Tiep and Hien are Vietnamese words of Chinese origin.
