    SIT-A-LONG with Jundo: Newtown -IS- Samsara



    Samsara, this world we live in, is thus. It is a world filled with great beauty and sometime great ugliness, human beings who live in peace and those who kill. Sometimes innocent children die. Today is a day for tears.

    The true evil doer is greed, anger and ignorance, mental illness. That is the disease, that is the real culprit.

    Yet, the Buddha also Teaches of a View of Views, free of birth and death, beyond violence, with no separate killer or killed, no gain or loss in Wholeness ... and so no hearts which can be broken thus. We must keep the View that these little children have returned to This which is never left. May their parents and loved ones also find Peace.

    Even though there is This beyond violence and death, nothing to break or repair ... hand in hand, we must work hard to fix this world and make it better for the future, ending the violence, poverty, sickness.

    All at once. This is our Practice.

    PS -

    I would suggest that the best place to make a contribution is to a charity dedicated to ending gun violence or violence in general. Here are some suggestions ...

    Brady Center To Prevent Gun Violence

    Futures Without Violence

    Thank you so much for your teaching, for putting this in perspective in both time and place, for connecting this tragedy with our lives and our world. Finally, thank you for continuing to point us in a direction of action, when such a tragedy can and often does lead to a helpless paralysis. Many bows,

    Ann/Josho

    The depth of this talk and also that of Josho's reply say it all best. So I will simply gassho and sit in silence. Thank you!

    I think Alan's question on another thread, and my reply, also connect here. Some Buddhist perspectives can seem, at first blush, too cold. They are anything but cold and uncaring ...

    Where do we turn?

    Thank you for this teaching Jundo.

    It all begins when we say, I. Everything that follows is illusion.
