Thread: New Years Greetings from Treeleaf, Japan

  1. #1

    New Years Greetings from Treeleaf, Japan

    A New Years tradition at Buddhist temples across Japan is the ringing of the Joya-no-kane (除夜の鐘) ...


    ... the temple bell near midnight. The bell is typically rung 108 times (sometimes by the temple priests, sometimes by parishioners) to cleanse the listener of the 108 mortal afflictions (bonno ... anger, greed, ignorance, envy, hatred, arrogance and the rest) that, in traditional Buddhist thinking, are the causes of suffering. By ringing out the old year and ringing in the new, each earthly desire will be taken away and therefore we can start the New Year with a pure mind.

    From where does that sound come? To where does it go?

    Perhaps we might also say that past moments ... the up and downs, happiness and sadness ... are now gone, and a new beginning rings out ... ever new and renewing.

    Master Dogen wrote, "Zazen ... is like the hammer striking emptiness, the bell's melodious sound continues to resonate as it echoes, endlessly before and after. It is not limited to this moment ."

    HAPPY NEW EVERY-MOMENT, EVERY-ONE!

    Hello Jundo,

    thank you for the beautiful bell ringing link.

    Although it's still a few hours before the official celebratory time here in Germany, I'd also like to wish everyone a wonderful 2013!

    Happy new year one and all.

    May all beings everywhere plagued with sufferings of body and mind
    quickly be freed from their illnesses.
    May those frightened cease to be afraid
    and may those bound be free.
    May the powerless find power
    and may people think of befriending one another.

    We ridin' on the Sooooooooooooul Traiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiin!

    Anyway, happy New Year! Last night it was nice to see a segment on television showing different celebrations around the world and for a moment a bell in Tokyo was featured.

    Me, I just bang on pots and pans, and load up my "Animal Crossing" game to watch the cute little fireworks.

    Correction for Buddhists Amelia ... Non-Soul Train ...

    Rebirth for us is like a train that keeps arriving at station after station, but with constantly changing cars and passengers never the same. (I was going to say it is like the "Soul Train" dance floor, where the dancers and song keep changing, but the show goes on ... but some of our non-US folks might not get the non-reference)

    Ah, the (non-) persistence of sound and motion; "Shall we dance or wait for the music?"
