I first became aware of the Reverend Jiyu Kennet in the 70s when Selling Water by the River was all the rage She founded Shasta Abbey in the US and an offshoot, Throssel Hole Priory now Abbey in Northumberland At that time Shasta had a mixture of single and married monks, as is not uncommon in Japan Probably the two most significant figures who promoted Japanese Zen in the west were DT Suzuki a layman and Shunryu Suzuki a priest , both were married men However in the mid 1980s, Kennet I first became aware of the Reverend Jiyu Kennet in the 70s when Selling Water by the River was all the rage She founded Shasta Abbey in the US and an offshoot, Throssel Hole Priory now Abbey in Northumberland At that time Shasta had a mixture of single and married monks, as is not uncommon in Japan Probably the two most significant figures who promoted Japanese Zen in the west were DT Suzuki a layman and Shunryu Suzuki a priest , both were married men However in the mid 1980s, Kennet decided to declare a rule of celibacy in the Order of Buddhist Contemplatives, the married monks were thrown out of Shasta This background should be borne in mind when you read this book, as a Buddhist catechism it is okay and charmingly written, and it does give some insight into what the Reverend Morgan gets out of his zazen practice, for which I am grateful But the larger questions, such as what are the risks and drawbacks of introducing this kind of practice into the alien cultural context of the west, are not touched on at all Just to give an example, the monk who succeeded Kennet as Abbot of Shasta monastery decided, after 20 years of celibacy that enough was enough and got himself a girl friend, shock horror , and was asked to leave, the last I heard he was working in a bar So just be aware, if you want to pursue this kind of Zen, it sounds simple as presented here but there are skeletons in the closet We are in the 21st century for goodness sake.Somewhere in the book the good Reverend remarks that he would make a rotten comedian, though he s fairly good as a monk Now he has retired I hope he will hang up his kesa and develop his comedy talents and write something a bithonest about what really went on in Throssel Hole (((Download Kindle))) ⇱ Buddha Recognizes Buddha ↮ Inspired by the works of the great Zen master Dogen, Buddha Recognizes Buddha considers how the principle of non duality finds expression in Buddhist practice Daishin Morgan looks at how we can understand ourselves and our relationship with others without dividing the world into opposites of right and wrong or good and bad and still find a basis for moral action There is no place for a God or an Absolute conceived as above or outside of experience, as all things are undivided in their essential nature In the first part of the book Daishin looks at the role of the will, faith, hope, cause and effect, acceptance and other subjects from the perspective of non duality In the second part, he goes on to offer an interpretation of the main scriptures that are used regularly in Soto Zen This book takes seriously the teaching that enlightenment is an ever present reality rather than a state we may realize at some future date Reality cannot be divided into enlightened and unenlightened existence One of the many implications of this is that Zen meditation should be understood as an expression of enlightenment rather than as a means to an end Daishin clarifies some of the implications of this outlook and shows the profound effect it can have on how we live RevDaishin Morgan is a disciple of the late RevMaster Jiyu Kennett, founder of the Order of Buddhist Contemplatives He has been a Zen Buddhist monk foryears and abbot of Throssel Hole Buddhist Abbey in Northumberland since Across the Top of the World: The Quest for the Northwest Passage Buddha Recognizes Buddha considers how the principle of non duality finds expression in Buddhist practice Daishin Morgan looks at how we can understand ourselves and our relationship with others without dividing the world into opposites of right and wrong or good and bad and still find a basis for moral action There is no place for a God or an Absolute conceived as above or outside of experience Andean Awakening: An Incan Guide to Mystic Peru as all things are undivided in their essential nature In the first part of the book Daishin looks at the role of the will ADD-Friendly Ways to Organize Your Life: Second Edition: Strategies That Work from an Acclaimed Professional Organizer and a Renowned ADD Clinician faith Lumix Superzoom Fotoschule FZ1000 II hope Growing Up Untouchable in India cause and effect Språkinriktad undervisning -
