How did you find Shingon?

Post by jake » Thu Aug 13, 2015 2:32 pm

It is a quiet day here while I wait for some rain and discovered that the Shingon group on FB has a wide range of participants. So, I would like to ask:

1. How did you first learn of Shingon?

2. Where and with whom do you study? (e.g. Koyasan Shingon-shu Temple in L.A.)

3. What are your favorite resources for study? (e.g. Hakeda's Kukai Major Works, Hodge's Mahavairocana Sutra, online resources?)

4. What would you like to see more of? Books? Retreats? Centers? etc..

Hi Jake.

1. My study of Japanese martial arts led me to Fudo. Fudo led me to Shingon.
2. I study at the Honolulu Liliha Shingon mission. Rev. Finch teaches our classes.
3. Books. Kukai Major Works, Kukai On the Philosophy Of Language, btts
4. More opportunities for learning from ordained and other persons qualified to teach and study under.

1 extending unlimited universal love and good will to all living beings without any kind of discrimination
2 compassion for all living being who are suffering, in trouble and affliction
3 sympathetic joy in others success, welfare and happiness
4 equanimity in all vicissitudes of life
