Field of Blessings: Mahayana Buddhist Approaches to Healing 

Field of Blessings: Mahayana Buddhist Approaches to Healing By Ji Hyang Padma In contemporary American culture, we have enhanced awareness of Buddhism by bringing it into dialogue with science.  Jon Kabat- Zinn, who is almost single-handedly responsible for this development, has brought about a cultural renaissance with regard to the inclusion of mindfulness in the healing arts. However, there are other healing aspects of the path, the deep rituals of traditional Buddhist healing practices that may also serve to revitalize our Western healing monoculture. Tibetan Medicine, particularly, has evolved into its own art & science, woven together with Mahayana Buddhist practice.

Understanding Devotion And Life’s Purpose

Understanding Devotion And Life’s PurposeIndian philosopher, Jiddu Krishnamurti, once famously said: Only those who’ve never truly loved, ask me questions about life’s purpose. Why does living need a purpose other than its mere being?

The purpose can be found in our inner state of being, or rather, our own ability to enrich our inner experience. When was the last time you were in love? How did it feel? Didn’t everything seem meaningful? When you are living in gratitude, do you even question life’s purpose? And isn’t gra...

He says that Manas refers to Manas Sarovar which originated from the heart of Lord Brahma. Manas Sarovar translates as River of the Heart.  Manas means heart of Lord Brahma while Sarovar refers to the emotions that arose in the heart of Lord Brahma while contemplating on Sri Rama. Further, Valmiki says, from this very Manas Sarovar, the river Sarayu came into existence. This river has great significance as it emerged from the eyes of Sri Rama.Story of Sarayu RiverWhen Sri Rama appeared in front of Brahma, tears of love started flowing through His eyes.
