Thread: I need your donation against violence.

  1. #51
    Hi Kakunen,

    In my heart the end to violence starts when you live a kind and compassionate life. We do not control what other people do and say, but we can walk in compassion helping all sentient beings.

    Please don't lose yourself into understanding violence. There is nothing to understand. There is only silence. Our Bodhisattva vow is to live to benefit all sentient beings and the chain of violence will be broken.

    Thinking about you and your son.

    From my own situation, I think parents that hurt their children sometimes cannot bear to think they are wrong. They are too afraid to look deeply at their actions and do atonement.

    I have learned to let it go and wish them happiness. But it was difficult and took a long time.

    Parents are weak and human. When we become parents we understand this. Now you can be a better parent than your own parents were. But your son will become his own person, anyway.

    All of us who are parents that are trying to be better parents than our own, by facing things our parents could not face, are brothers and sisters in this journey

    I can stay shelter house for several month,helped by politician.

    When I went city goverment,staff refuse to stay shelter,because I have money and house.
    Staff said to me people can stay shelter is no money ,no house.

    In Japan lots of people at such situation.But lots of people run away from shelter.
    Shelter is place to help people and restart new life.
    But almost people can not restart life.

    I saw terrible situation,drink alcohol,smoke cigarette,and dirty room,and eating meal like dog...

    I feel they forget purpose to live.

    And I feel staff of city government do not see this truth.

    Just a little faithful politician know truth,so he said to me,please keep patience and go to better shelter.

    Anyway I will see the poor mind side of human being.

    Sat today.

    I feel bad energy at shelter.
    So I come to sea side house.
    And I do half fasting.

    This is kind of inspiration.

    3 years ago ,I decided to go Antaiji,I said same word to you.

    If I didnít go Antaiji,I donít know I am still alive.

    Now I feel same feeling.

    Bad times and bad luck are the bringers of light. Our practice is a way to understand and to be at peace no matter how hard life gets.

    Thank you for accepting my thoughts.

    I need to say to you.

    I went to hospital.And I talked with Jundo.Do I need to say everything to you?I think you are too much.

    If you will help perfectly,Maybe I will accept,or not.

    Jundo is my teacher.But I can choice my teacher.This is what I can decide.

    But Jundo is very very good teacher.

    But you can not decide my teacher.

    Monk Koya at Jyomanji.
    His temple made by master Keizan.He is 39 years old,very young.And teacher of 2nd temple Sojiji.

    http://jomanji.web.fc2.com/index_e.html

    Monk Furutaka at Myotokuji.
    He is teacher of 1st temple Eiheiji and German temple Fumonji.

    http://doitsufumonji.com/intro/


    Monk Sasagawa at Tenryuji.
    He is first trainee monk of Master Sakai.
    Master Sakai is first trainee monk of Master Sawaki.

    http://www.tenryuji.net/about.html

    And Antaiji.
    http://antaiji.org/en/

    I stay all temple.

    So I have a possibility to go there.

    But I will not go.Because I have a Karma to help people at Tokyo.


    Anyway,You can not decide my teacher.
    And right now your advise is poison for me.

    If you help me,I will follow you.
    But you can not help me.

    I recommend you to be calm and do not approach me now.

    Please donít send message anymore.If you want to advice me please said Jundo,.Maybe Jundo select this is good or bad.

    I will not answer your message right now .

    Your message is not helpful.

    Thank you.

    I talk about violence at here.

    When I talk about violence,I suffer at discrimination.

    Lots of people think person who sufferd at violence keep on doing violence.

    But Buddhist know about truth.We can keep on practicing till nirvana.

    So I will keep on talking about violence.

    And I try to ease nagative image of violence.

    Violence is not violence.

    Violence is kind of way to express sadness and so on.

    Hi Kakunen

    It is often hard for people to hear about violence and people who have suffered from it.
    It is not a comfortable topic for many people but that doesn't mean they should not hear about it.

    Not everyone who is a victim of violence goes on to be violent themselves.

    There are times to speak and times not to speak. When it is time then speak your truth.

    If we donít believe violence,we can apart from violence.

    But on the other side we canít accept violence.
