Re: Yes or No ...

Do you enjoy listening to music?

Re: Building merit for my cats

When I was living with my sister and niece, they had a cat (they still have it). I often use to do metta (lovingkindness) meditation with Sammy laying in the circle of my arms. I saw Sammy on Sunday, he came up and laid on my shoulder and licked my nose. I always added metta for Sammy when I did the...

Re: Quack!

I took the name online of sattva many years ago. It means being, pure, buoyant, etc. However, since then I received a Dharma name. It is Junjou. It means pure heart, a very hard name to live up to!!! My "real" name is Louise. I only use my Dharma name when writing to my teacher. :namaste:

Re: How do you meditate?

Hi! Just wanted to let you know that I am familiar with two Zen teachers just north of Asheville, therefore closer to you. The place is Windhorse Zen Community at Alexander, NC and is run by a husband and wife who are Zen teachers in Philip Kapleau's lineage. I visited there once about 10 years ago....

Re: Thanks to you, I took refuge today

I had a short refuge ceremony today, and I want to take this moment to thank all the people on Dharmawheel who had the compassion to correct me when I was encouraging wrong views. If I ever support wrong views again, I hope that you'll waste no time and set me straight. I was surprised by how many ...

My Teacher Needs Help

Dear Friends, I hate to ask for help, but my teacher could use all the financial support you can offer. My teacher has a little retreat center in the mountains of New Mexico. "After purchasing the land in Ojo Sarco (in 1996) she felt so drawn to, two members came to live on the property and help dev...

Re: Yes or No ...

Yes (Sometimes, that is. I don't like ice cream in the winter time and since my heart surgery, there are times I don't like it or other dairy products. It is strange to develop this aversion to a food I once loved all the time, but I have found that it is common after surgery, especially heart surge...

Re: What Color is this Dress?

If anyone read the article I posted, there have been many different theories as to why people see it differently and although many are tired of this subject, I find it fascinating because if it may lead to some understanding we don't have yet on how the brain works or eyesight or both. One of the la...

Re: Yes or No ...

No, unfortunately. Being disabled, on oxygen when I am up moving or sleeping, and going to dialysis 3 days a week for half a day, makes travelling somewhat difficult. However, my teacher continues to work with me from a distance. I just finished a 5 week personal term intensive where we kept in touc...

Re: Which school of Buddhism should I choose for myself?

Personally, I have found that you often become involved with whatever path or teacher you have an affinity with and that doesn't mean it will all go smoothly. Sometimes, it is challenging! Have you tried this site to find more options. http://www.buddhanet.info/wbd/country.php?country_id=61 I would ...
