Dansk Dharmacenter

Post by Tiago Simões » Tue Oct 03, 2017 11:31 am

I don't have any connection with this dharma center nor do I live in Denmark. But I do dig it's ambience, I don't like obnoxiously overlit modern temples.

They seem to have adapted very well to Nordic Danish culture. They follow the Tendai school.

Then, the Licchavi Vimalakīrti spoke to the elder Śāriputra and the great disciples: “Reverends, eat of the food of the Tathāgata! It is ambrosia perfumed by the great compassion. But do not fix your minds in narrow-minded attitudes, lest you be unable to receive its gift.”

- Chapter 9, The Feast Brought by the Emanated Incarnation
The Noble Mahāyāna Sūtra “The Teaching of Vimalakīrti”

When I lived in Ireland I encouraged Pia (Shomon) to come to gyo with me! She's a nice person.

Chih-I:
The Tai-ching states "the women in the realms of Mara, Sakra and Brahma all neither abandoned ( their old) bodies nor received (new) bodies. They all received buddhahood with their current bodies (genshin)" Thus these verses state that the dharma nature is like a great ocean. No right or wrong is preached (within it) Ordinary people and sages are equal, without superiority or inferiority
