Not heal by Buddhism ? ! 仏道からの癒し---それともコーヒー?

彼岸寺といふ仏教サイトに面白い事が書かれていました。浄土宗の日下と言う僧侶が書いたもの

だそうですが,彼は何故か仏道に癒しが感じられない ---むしろ一杯のコーヒーや家族に

癒されるとのこと。浄土宗では教えないのかも知れませんが元々の

釈尊の教えは「無私」ですからそもそもコーヒーを愛でる己れ,家族に愛着した己れどころか

対象としての仏教なるもの自体が存在しない。

---という現象を学ぶ為に仏教では延々と続く勤行を繰返し,それを無意識,無感情でする

(無私無心)訓練をする。=無私無心でちゃんと生活が成り立つ =では誰が生きているのか?

= それが法 / ダルマであるのです。

己れにしがみつきながら,どこか彼方から 癒しが得られるのでは,と期待するのは

お門違いでは???

In one of the Buddhist’s site “Higan-dera” in Japan, a monk called Kenyu Kusaka

wrote a short essay saying that he noticed that he is not feeling the heal from

Buddhism, but from coffee !  He was a Pure-land sect monk, so that expecting him

to have the understanding of what Buddhism IS, might be too much to ask.

The core of the teachings of

Lord Buddha was, First, there IS no such thing like SELF (Atman) exists. 

And to learn this truth, the followers practiced long repeated practice

until they could do it automatically (= without thinking) and without emotion

(= no-emotion / not having a feeling of SELF = hence realize No Existent of the Self )   

Without knowing this teachings, the monk may still thinking that there IS the

subject called Buddhism and a person who is learning it.

No such things there or anywhere = if only a person doing the practice and the life

without having the SELF, what prevailed there IS the Dharma.

(= if the person IS NOT there, who is living there = That IS very Dharma)

[]

But a monk like Kusaka, clinging his SELF and attached to his family AND a cup of

COFFEE, Buddhism is too remote, yet wanting to feel a healing ?  What he is asking ?

There is a big irony, —– as long as the person asking, never given, as long as

the person looking for, never find. = The EGO of want push the goal away.
