    SIT-A-LONG with JUNDO: A JOYOUS VESAK

    .
    April 8th marks VESAK, HANAMATSURI, BUDDHA'S BIRTHDAY, in Japan (other days in various places in Asia) ...



    ... Please join us in celebration of this simple time of birth and rebirth.



    Truly, each moment of each moment is the moment of Buddha's Birth.



    Today’s Sit-A-Long video follows at this link. Remember: recording ends soon after the beginning bells; a sitting time of 15 to 35 minutes is recommended.

    Thank you Jundo,
    You remind me of the lovely Baby Buddha washing ceremony at Reading Priory.

    Hm, how do I say this. I confess I'm having a bit of trouble with Vesak, or at least mixed feelings. I mean I've spent my life not believing in or really wanting to celebrate the "virgin birth" of Christ, and now here I am celebrating the baby Buddha popping out of his mother's side and declaring his godhood? Perhaps I am speaking too bluntly, or focusing too heavily on a literal interpretation of a creation myth (or however a scholar might put it) but . . . well . . . is it just me?

    Thank you Jundo. Remember seeing the ceremony in a Tokyo temple in 2007. Very beautiful. Must do it with my kids next year.

    I take it all as symbol and parable. I just like babies and new life ... whether they are baby Buddhas or just babies. THAT IS THE TRUE MIRACLE!

    The white elephant in a dream and all the rest, his jumping out of his mother's side already 'walkin' & talkin' ... just lovely decorations added by ancient story tellers to add a bit of flash and magic.

    BUT THE REAL MAGIC IS HERE ALL ALONG! 8)
