Thread: Greetings from Kakunen (Mr. K.) now Training at Jyomanji

  1. #251
    I met head monk of our family temple.

    I will share video of this temple named Kozenji.

    Kozenji is traditional style temple of Soto Sect.Kozenji is symbol of city,past time temple was school.

    But now work of this temple is ceremony.

    I walk there everyday and do fasting.Because I need to stop taking a medicine and remove poison of medicine.

    Everybody need to decide by themselves.

    Here is video.

    Kozenji is good temple.But next head monk go back temporary his home.

    Now in Japan,almost person do not want to be monk.

    So if he will not come back,Kozenji lose successor.

    Head monk was very worry about it.

    I feel I want to help them.

    Kakunen, please take care. Listen to your doctors, just sit, let go of the past, try and be present with life as it is, whether happy or sad.

    Kakunen,

    What others say is not you. Everyone has an opinion, but their opinion doesn't show who you are. You show yourself through your actions, your words, and your heart.

    Training can help with your sadness, which can help with your high blood pressure. But it is very important to also listen and work with your doctor. Practice and doctors together will help you. =)

    I can not forgive my parents deeply.
    I losed my family,money,work,health,home and friend in a flash.

    Sometimes people become devil.

    Am I crazy?This things happend 17 years ago.

    But I stop thinking about it today.
    I will go care training to Tokyo and go to Tenryuji.

    I find a book written about head monk Sasagawa.So I want to talk about it to him.

    I will just do it and sometime mistake and hear my mind and talking with a member around me and will walk forever.

    Mr. K,

    Yes, I understand. The same for me.

    Worry less, sit with a big heart, take care of your health, live gently.

    I have vertigo too! 20 years. Sometimes very sick, sometimes ok. But always ok.

    You are NOT crazy. I have pain. I have guilt. I beat myself up over things that happened many years ago. That is a human thing to do.

    Remember what Viktor Frankl says: WE create our meaning in life. We must not let the past make the future. We must be the future we want.

    I hope you are okay, Mr. K. If you want to practice English, please send me a private message here. We can practice together.

    I am thinking about you, everyday. Thank you for your practice.

    I try Ichiro Suzuki method stretching yesterday.Blood pressure is 120/80 and stop vertigo and headache.Very amazing.



    In old style temple in Japan,negative image for yoga and so on.

    But I decide ,I believe my feeling.

    So I will ask head monk Tenryuji about yoga and stretch.

    Now we have lots of stress for mind,so our practice will need to change.

    This is my opinion.

    I will respect old Japanese style and just doing celemony.

    But I want to think about Buddha's traditional style,try some practice and find answer of himself,and helping myself and helping neighbors.

    I really realize.

    Thank you everytime.

    Kakunen,

    We touch each other with words from both sides of the world! It is a wonderful thing!

    You speak enough English for us to talk to each other and feel that we are all the same. Buddha, Dharma, Sangha, everywhere. That is the language of Zazen. Thank you for this.

    Please also do Hokey Pokey each day ...

    Greetings from Kakunen (Mr. K.) now Training at Jyomanji

    I avoid sleeping outdoor because of helping by local people.





    I am on the way on Zen traditional training way.Near Tenryuji.

    My head monk's teacher of teacher is Kodo Sawaki.So I require this way.

    But this way is what I want.This is reason why I leave Zuioji.Japanese Zen practice is almost die.

    In Japan Eiheiji and all monastery is not true Zen monastery.

    I choice this way by myself.

    I am searching for me.After hard practice,I will be relax and calm ,and helping neighbor.

    If I scribe bad words ,Please please believe me. I want to live honesty.

    Always thank you Jundo and every Treeleafer.

    I meet again Belgium friend again.Road from there to here 100km.He leave here in this morning by hitchhike.

    Sometimes I suffer on this situation. This is a meaning for good directions.

    So I stop temporary here and feel deeply inside.



    Good luck to his journey,Nicola.

    And this is Buddha's enlightenment,everything is connecting and helping each other always.

    So I do not regret about temporary separate from Jyomanji and Tenryuji and Zuioji.
