Right Mindfulness

May 16

The seventh aspect of the Eightfold Path, Right Mindfulness(Jp. shōnen 正念 )is to live each moment with awareness of the Buddha’s wisdom and compassion at work in our lives.  These days “mindfulness” has become a buzz-word with mindfulness practices being prescribed by doctors and taught in business settings and public schools. 

The Nembutsu (念仏)Recitation of the Name of Amida Buddha Namo Amida Butsu is one of the oldest and most widespread mindfulness practices in the Buddhist Tradition.  This Sunday we consider how Nembutsu practice relates to the present day mindfulness movement.
