Buddhadharma : Fall 2016
fall 2 0 1 6 buddhadharma: the practitioner’s quarterly 13 intricately connected. With the practice we can transform the sadness, the anger, the suffering for ourselves but also for our par- ents, grandparents, great-grandparents, and great-great-grandparents. With everything that you learn in the practice—including mindful breathing and mindful walking—you learn to be aware. In a moment when you see that you are very angry, instead of saying, “I am so angry at that person” or “This anger is mine and mine alone,” you can say, “Hello, Dad! I know you are here with me.” And when you are anxious and restless, you can say, “Hello, Mom! I know you are here and I am holding you with my stable posture, with my smile. I come back to my in-breath and out-breath to hold your restlessness, your anger, your sadness.” All you need to do is to recognize that energy. That particular energy comes from your mom, or your dad, or your grand- mother, or your grandfather. You say hello to them and simply smile and breathe and relax. Your body and your mind calm down. That energy subsides, and in that moment, you are most beautiful and kind to your parents and your ancestors because you are helping transform that difficulty in them. Indeed, with the healing from your practice, you are your ancestors in their most beautiful manifestation. FROM Mindfulness Bell, SuMMER 2016 only love In the wake of Orlando, Larry Yang calls upon us to dispel hate in the only way we can. In the chaos of violence, senselessness, carnage, and despair, we can take care of each other. We can hold each other with the most precious thing we can offer, our compassionate attention. Unwavering, we can love one another without questioning or second-guessing any aspect of that love or anyone’s life experience or identity. There is great power in that coming together from wherever we are. In that solidarity with the deepest of places of our tender humanity, we begin to live the truth that the Buddha spoke of: Hate never yet dispelled hate. Only love dispels hate. This is the law, ancient and inexhaustible. We begin to create justice in the only ways possible—through just means. Instead of trading homophobia with xenopho- bia as an insidious pattern of the market economy—displacing and playing off the oppression of one for the oppression of another—we endeavor to dispel all oppres- sions, for the freedom of all beings. We can only create justice through just means—that is the law, ancient and inexhaustible. FROM LIONSROAR.COM, JuNE 13
