Musical Nembutsu

[vc_row][vc_column width=”1/1″][vc_column_text]In our daily lives it is easy to feel separated and cut off from the Source of what is, from other people, and even from ourselves. We are all looking for ways to overcome the suffering in our lives, and to unify with ourselves and all other beings.

Since ancient time, people have touched the real existence of God and Buddha through music. It infuses so many world faiths including Buddhism, that it is difficult to separate music from religion. We do musical Nembutsu, with harmonies and instruments, for people to experience healing and feel the real existence of the Buddha. At this level, Buddhist recitation is very different from Zen practice, which is done in silence.

Through the practice of Nembutsu we realize that there is no separation between our own happiness and that of others. By genuinely wishing for others to overcome and reach peace and happiness, we contribute to our own well being and inner harmony. This is the core teaching of Mahayana Pure Land Buddhism.

This meditation and chanting practice creates a joyful feeling and a deeply tranquil state. The feeling is quite unique, and spreads to the whole world. We truly wish for everyone to experience this feeling. Weekly Nembutsu Circles are offered at all of the Tao Sangha Centres throughout the world.

What is Nembutsu Samadi?

Nembutsu practice started in Theravada Buddhism in India about 2000 years ago. The practice of Nembutsu creates unification with Amida Buddha (the great spirit of the universe.) Through the chanting recitation of the sacred name, Namu Amida Butsu, which means “I follow/return back to Amida Buddha.” Through the practice of Nembutsu, people share and derive spiritual benefit for themselves and others.

By unifying the wish in our heart for healing and unifying this with with Amida Buddha through visualization and mantra chanting, people experience deep relief and healing. Everybody is invited and welcome to this regular, unique event, especially newcomers.
