I KNOW NOW how the blessing of the food sounds in Amaravati monastery. Chanting in Pali, the ancient language, close relative of Sanskrit, male and female voices weave together into the intricate sound prayer of gratitude. Equal in chanting, they are not equal in their rights to get the food. The monks go ahead of nuns. That is how it is done traditionally. Hmmm...doesn't feel right for me. What if they mix and go one after another - one man, one woman....so there is no male dominance, no gender superiority, we are in the 21st century!....but that is my thinking)). Little school kids are mesmerised, (some of them:-)), they are introduced to an exotic world of colours, clothes, sounds and images. This may trigger their curiosity about the whole thing how our mind works and what is this Buddhist philosophy about. Or it may not.... May the food donated and cooked today, be healthy and bring exquisite nourishment to our body minds. May there will be enough for everyone and nobody will go hungry. Especially children. #buddhistphilosophy #blessings #monasticlife #richsoil #palilanguage #sacredchanting #buddhistchanting #mysteriesofthemind #foodforthought #genderequality

Indiana Buddhist Temple Location: Roughly 25 minutes Southeast of Fort Wayne, 7528 Thompson Road, Hoagland, IN 46745 The Indiana Buddhist Temple is a temple in Hoagland, Indiana, on the first floor of the Abbott’s house, where it hosts a variety of services, including a meditation service on “Mindfulness of Breathing.” Before and after meditation, worship leader Bhante Devananda does a chant in Pali, which is the Buddhist language. Meditation is done sitting in a comfortable position, closing your eyes, and listening. The meditation time consists of sitting in a comfortable position, closing your eyes, and listening to a few instructions: “Let go of school; work; responsibilities; negative emotion. You cannot take this with you to achieve happiness.” Or “Take one mindful breath in…. and let a mindful breath out.” (A mindful breath is a deep breath that you concentrate on really feeling.) Meditation may sound intimidating at first, and in some ways it is. Even regulars say you can meditate for years before you’re able to do it properly. But while many who attend the Temple’s services are Buddhist, you don’t have to be Buddhist to meditate. Buddhism can be more about the philosophy of happiness, peacefulness, and kindness, worship leaders say. People of all religions (or lack thereof) attend meditation services. On our visit, we met a woman who was Catholic, and a man who was Agnostic. Bhante Devananda, who was doing the chanting and blessing, blessed us a few times with the phrase, “May you be well, happy, and peaceful.” Both Bhante Devananda and the regular worshippers welcome to newcomers into the community, with food and tea, offered knowledge, and invitations. #meditation #mindful #mindfulness #mindfullnessmoment #mindfulnessmeditation #buddhisttemple #buddhistmonk #mettabhavana #metta #lovingkindness #lovingkindnessmeditation #indianabuddhisttemple #bhantedevananda #indiana #fortwayne #buddhism #buddhistchant #buddhistchanting #theravadachanting #chant #pali #tipitakachanting http://www.inputfortwayne.com/features/city-of-chruches-worship-centers.aspx

OM MANI PADME HUM...Compassionate Buddha Mantra. This mantra is that of Avalokiteshvara or the Buddha of compassion according to Tibetan Buddhism. Avalokiteshvara is a Buddha form who represents compassion, and his mantra also symbolizes that quality. Avalokiteshvara means “The Lord Who Looks Down in compassion”. And the Dalai Lama points out that just as a jewel can relieve poverty, so the compassionate mind takes away the poverty of unhappiness that exists in the world and replaces it with the wealth of wellbeing. This is probably the best known Buddhist mantra chanted across the world. #ommanipadmehum #ommanipemehung #mantra meditation #istanbul #istanbulmantrameditation #istanbulmantras #Buddha #bodhisattva #Tibet #tibetanbuddhism #compassion #compassionatebuddha #tibetanmantra #jewelofthelotus #dalailama #tashidelek #lotus #jeweloflotus #buddhism #buddhistchant #nepal #tibetanchants #buddhistchanting #karmapa #gururinpoche #padmasambhava #tibet @tinaturner #tashidelek #buddha #siddhartha #shakyamuni

Mindfulness of Breath (Anapanasati Bhavana) every Thursday at 6:30 pm. All are welcome. We recite Maha Mangala Sutta when The Buddha explain Life Highest Blessings: Thus have I heard: Once while the Blessed One was staying in the vicinity of Saavatthi, in the Jeta Grove, in Anaathapindika's monastery, a certain deity, whose surpassing brilliance and beauty illumined the entire Jeta Grove, late one night came to the presence of the Blessed One; having come to him and offered profound salutations he stood on one side and spoke to him reverently in the following verse: Many deities and human beings Have pondered what are blessings, Which they hope will bring them safety: Declare to them, Sir, the Highest Blessing. #mahamangalasutta #buddhistchanting #blessings #bhantedevananda #theravadachanting #indianabuddhisttemple #chant #mindfulness #anapanasati #buddhism #buddha #meditation #mindfulness #fortwayne #visitfortwayne #meditationforkids #meditationthursday #buddhism #buddhisttemple #buddhistchant #buddhateachings #mayyoubewell #allnightchanting #allarewelcome #happiness #mettabhavana #lovingkindness #blessed
I've been bedbound for nearly a month. Physios got me moving about 30 yards. My cousin, Peregrine Heathcote, collected me and took me back to Oxford. I'm stage 4 skeletal cancer, but out of the "I'm sorry but you've only got 5 years left" Still pretty Ill, but solid progress. I was admitted to hospital through A&E, because I had such excruciating pain that I couldn't stand/walk. They've added Gabapentin to my meds, and it's helping move the pain. I still can't really stand. Anyway, yesterday I must have walked over 200 yards, hunched in a Zimmer frame, so please watch this space, as I might yet make it to the pub!! #steroidsforWeightgain #peregrineheathcote #screwcancer #prostateawareness #menshealth #shotonOnePlus5 #chelwest #charingcrosshospital #royalmarsden #gorgefriends #imgoingtobeatthisshit #buddhistchanting #nammyohorengekyo

Loving Kindness Meditation (Metta Bhavana) Every Monday at 6:30 pm. Increases Positive Emotions & Decreases Negative Emotions In a landmark study, Barbara Frederickson and her colleagues ( Fredrickson, Cohn, Coffey, Pek, & Finkel, 2008) found that practicing 7 weeks of loving-kindness meditation increased love, joy, contentment, gratitude, pride, hope, interest, amusement, and awe. These positive emotions then produced increases in a wide range of personal resources (e.g., increased mindfulness, purpose in life, social support, decreased illness symptoms), which, in turn, predicted increased life satisfaction and reduced depressive symptoms. All are welcome. May all beings be well and happy. #mettabhavana #lovingkindnessmeditation #meditation #fortwayneindiana #fortwayne #myfortwayne #indianabuddhisttemple #bhantedevananda #metta #mindful #meditationretreat #meditationmonday #buddhisttemple #buddhistchanting #blessings #theravadachanting #positivevibes #positivethoughts #buddha #buddhastatue #happiness

How cool is this! Villa_di_Geggiano heard I was in hospital for a couple of more days and sent some fine food over for me! Wild boar pasta, (for the wild bore) followed by a super steak, and some cheese cake. And yes, this IS now my first ever sponsored food blog!! I couldn't have any wine from their vineyard, as one of my meds doesn't allow alky. Boo hoo.

Well, that was fairly sudden. I've gone from 'active', to an old man, shuffling in a Zimmer frame.....today!! The pain (now moved to pelvis) is SO bad, I can't walk upright. I've so little body strength on my left side, that unaided I fall over. This is from the places where the nerves go through my spine, and they're being squeezed, and also exiting inside the back of my skull. I'm going to have carers coming in to look after me, during the day. Unlikely to see me in the boozer...I'd be the old bloke on his own in the corner. Obviously they are desperately working on me, hoping that the Gabapentin will shift the pain site and intensity. All this in one effing day. Fuck cancer!! I really thought I was already on the winning path. I guess it starts now, and I guess I WILL need some help. I'll beat this bastard, and this is hopefully as low as you'll see me. I WILL WIN! #maggies #macmillan #screwcancer #chelwestoncology #charingxradiotherapy #royalmarsden #menshealth #prostateawareness #buddhistchanting #NamMyohoRengeKyo #nevergivein #shotonOnePlus5 #iwillwin
chanting Puxian Pusa ( Samantabhadra bodhisattva) #Samantabhadrabodhisattva #buddhistchanting #Namoouxianpusa
Flat on my back watching TV with the 90% prism glasses given to me as a Christmas prezzie by Joe Jacobs. I was admitted on Monday...so much pain from the tumour in my spine, that I couldn't walk...I'd set off to Partridges, 150 yards away to buy a Sunday paper, and ended up getting an Uber after 30 yards!! So admitted on Monday via A&E. Lots of tests, and they are probably going to inject medical cement into my (collapsing) Lumbar vertabra 5. The good news is that, since they got some results with the hormone therapy...they are juggling what back up to use next, I'm NO LONGER on the "Sorry son, you've only got five years left, max" I'm NOW in the "we'll see how long we can stop or slow this down" so no 'terminal' in sight!! WOOWOO!! Just a little pleased. #jojored #screwcancer #oncologynursing #radiotherapy #neurosurgery #macmillan #maggies #squareandroundreaders #charingcrosshospital #chelwesthospital #royalmarsden #prostateawareness #buddhistchanting #menshealth #getwellsoon #fabNHSstaff .
A beautiful end of afternoon at Wat Po Temple. The crowds had disappeared for a while,lots of Thai massage/yoga symbolism as well as reclining golden Buddha, an amazing collection of buddhas and most memorable was the beautifully peaceful chanting that echoed through the later part if our visit .... this was very special place to be in 'the moment' #gratitude #buddha #buddhistchanting #watpotemple #recliningbuddha #inthemoment #peace #Bangkok

Liver and Bacon, in The Phoenix last night. My sense of taste is starting to return (after my first chemo infusion, in November) I was freaked out by tasting my coffee, in the morning!

Did my last chemo infusion on 6th February. I didn't 'suffer' too badly, but I won't be doing that again. Now I'm starting to get weird side effects..including a puffy face, water retention (no idea where from, as I don't drink any!) micro cuts on my hands and fingers, and I've bitten my tongue every day, for the last five weeks...the last two days, I haven't so I'm v happy I was joking with the nurse doing my 'bloods', and she said "You look like 'Mr Chipmunk'!!" What do you think?! (Don't hold back!) @dunberberberlee reckons that this is Cushing Syndrome. I'm inclined to agree. #VAMPIRE ! #macmillan #maggies #chemotheraphy #prostatecancer #skeletalcancer #oncology #nhs #chelwest #charingcross #hammersmith #royalmarsden #hormonetherapy #hairloss #hairdye #fightback #steroidsforweightgain #superoncologynurses #gorgefriends #menshealth #daimoku #buddhistchanting #shotonOnePlus5 #radiotherapy #Iwillbeatthiscrap
