A BUDDHIST CHARTER

35 - The correct and complete meaning of the Five Precepts is one’s abstinence from endangering in any way others’ lives and well-being, possessions, loved ones, and deserved rights as well as one’s own mindfulness and awareness.

All of these are meant primarily for the peace of the society, but they have to be practiced by the individuals.

[FOREWORD] This book, A Buddhist Charter, which consists of 136 proposed items, results from the 50th anniversary commemoration of Suan Mokkh on Visakhapuja Day of 1982. The Venerable Than Achan Buddhadasa of Suan Mokkh drafted and presented motions to the Buddhist assembly there so that they would consider them and reach a common agreement which would become a practical guideline for Buddhists in general. The assembly consisted of two committees, one scripture or theory oriented and the other proper social practice oriented. The two committees joined forces in considering and refining the motions until they reached mutual satisfaction. They then declared the motions as a Buddhist charter.
...
The charter is divided into 10 groups, namely, (a) general; (b) practical principles that should be considered and put to rest; (c) different views that should be eliminated; (d) interpretation of the terms; (e) problems between religions; (f) international problems of the present world; (g) things that deserve to be understood and written down as rules; (h) culture of the present day Buddhists; (i) the ultimate dhammas that everybody should know; (j) miscellaneous problems. It can be seen that this charter covers almost all aspects; and it should be used a guide in tackling problems properly and in accordance with the Buddha-dhamma principle…

❖ Yet I’ve Become the Thingness ❖
~ By Ajahn Jayasāro ~

While convalescing after an illness, I have been reading an anthology of poems. My favourites were written in Japan hundreds of years ago. Some bring back fond memories of time spent in solitary places:
.
Quiet mountain hut
by a rice patch … till a deer’s cry
just outside startles me
and I move … so startling him:
We astonish one another

Saigyo
(trans. W. LeFleur)

.

Others bring an instant smile, “Yes. It’s true! But why?’
.
Children imitating cormorants
are even more wonderful
than cormorants

Issa
(trans. R. Hass)

.

I am moved by Degen’s expression of the ‘one true thing’ as
.
Black rain on the top of Fukakusa Temple

.

And I treasure this poem by Shido Bunan (trans. Stryk | Ikemoto)
.
The moon’s the same old moon
The flowers exactly as they were
Yet I’ve become the thingness
Of all the things I see

[4 of 7] Noble Truth of Dukkha's Origin

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tiSffua7llM&t=14s

Buddhadāsa Bhikkhu focuses on the second Noble Truth – the truth of the origin of dukkha – while also giving a birds-eye view of all the Ariya-sacca together. He uses the example of a potter making a pot to explain the correct meaning of Samudhaya Ariya-sacca, the second Noble Truth. He points out that the Buddha taught that dukkha has a direct immediate cause which we can verify right here, and warns against holding to the false belief that dukkha arises because of old kamma. Because the origin of dukkha comes through craving (tanha), he describes aspects of it in detail.

This Dhamma teaching was offered by Tan Ajahn on 9th January 1989.

❖ Buddhism teaches contentment. But if everyone was content with their life, how would human progress ever be achieved? ❖

Virtues taught by the Buddha are to be understood within the overall context of his path to awakening. Whenever the Buddha spoke about contentment he paired it with an energetic quality such as diligence, persistence or industriousness. He was careful to make clear that con- tentment is in no way connected to laziness, and is not another word for passivity. Contentment, in its Buddhist sense, must be appreciated in the light of the central importance the Buddha gave to human effort.The Buddha roundly criticized philosophies promoting fatalism, and once compared heedless people to walking corpses. Contentment does not undermine effort, but ensures the best possible ground on which it can be made.

Unenlightened beings commonly feel that they are missing out, that things they don’t possess would make them happier than the things they already have. Even when desire is fulfilled, the mind sated but the sense of lack found to be unchanged by the experience, this hope survives. Learning how to appreciate the merits of what we already possess allows us to let go of cravings, frustrations and jealousy. We set ourselves realistic goals and apply ourselves diligently to creating the causes and conditions for realization of those goals. But in the meantime, we enjoy, as far as possible, the present situation. For it would be a sad thing to put all our hopes for happiness into a future that never arrives.

A BUDDHIST CHARTER

34 - If one knows how to use the Four Mahapadesas for judgment, he will have no problems concerning rightness and wrongness.

The Four Mahapadesas in the Vinaya are things that the Buddha neither forbade nor allowed explicitly. If any particular thing matches what He allowed, that thing is also allowed; but if it contradicts what He said one should do, then it is forbidden. The Four Mahapadesas in the Dhamma are what was heard from the Buddha Himself, from a very learned Sangha, from a very learned group of people, and from a very learned monk. All of these should be verified by the majority of the suttas and compared with what is said in the majority of the vinayas. If they correspond, then what one heard is correct; but if they do not, then what one heard is not in line with the Buddha’s teachings.

❖ A Stern Master and a Struggling Student ❖
~ By Ajahn Jayasāro ~

When forest monks share stories over an evening mug of tea, anecdotes of stern masters are always appreciated. Humorous stories also go down well. Today, I would like to share with you a humorous story that features one such stern master and a struggling student. This student is full of faith but falls asleep every time he practises sitting meditation. The master gives the student various skilful means to deal with the problem, but none work. Within a few minutes of closing his eyes the student’s upper body rocks forward until his forehead almost touches the floor. His body returns to the vertical for a few seconds and then rocks forward again. This happens over and over again. All he is getting from meditation are some yoga stretches.
.
Finally, the master presents the student with a drastic remedy. He tells the student to go to meditate at the edge of the nearby cliff, looking out over the void. If nothing else helps, then the instinctive fear of death is all that remains. It’s clear that the student has two choices: get cured or rock yourself over the cliff edge.
.
The following morning the student pays his respects to the master. The master says in a kindly voice: “So, you are cured at last”. “No, master’, says the student with embarrassment. He explains “After I had been sitting for a while I started to get drowsy, and then this happened.’ To demonstrate, the student sits crosslegged and mimes to the master how he started to rock not forwards, but backwards, again and again.

8901 - [3 of 7] Noble Truth of Dukkha | Buddhadāsa Bhikkhu

[3 of 7] Noble Truth of Dukkha

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-3Na_68_kVk

Buddhadāsa Bhikkhu continues his examination of dukkha and explains why the most important point in Buddhism is the one about ‘atta’ and ‘anatta’ or ‘self’ and ‘not self.’ He further elaborates on the five khandhas and how they torment us only if we attach to them. He warns against useless Buddhist books that offer superficial cultural stuff because Real Buddhism is just one thing – removing attachment, getting rid of that ‘I’ and ‘mine’ regarding the five khandhas.

This Dhamma teaching was offered by Tan Ajahn on 8th January 1989.

❖ Can the creation and enjoyment of art be considered a spiritual path? ❖

Yes, but in the Buddhist view its spiritual benefits are relatively superficial. Great art may elevate the mind, and may illuminate the human condition in profound and emotionally satisfying ways, but it lacks the power in itself to induce the lasting transformation of consciousness provided by the practice of the Eightfold Path. Nevertheless, to the degree that the production and enjoyment of art involves the cultivation of nourishing mental states such as mindfulness and self-awareness, it may be seen as a support for the path of awakening.

ABOUT Ajahn Viradhammo
https://tisarana.ca/overview/resident-community-2/

Venerable Viradhammo was born in Esslingen, Germany in 1947 to Latvian refugee parents. They moved to Toronto when he was four years old. He studied engineering at the University of Toronto but became disillusioned with academic life and left in 1969 to see the world and experience other cultures. Later, while living in India, he encountered Buddhism, meeting the late Samanera Bodhesako, who introduced him to the teachings of the Buddha. He eventually travelled to Thailand to become a novice at Wat Mahathat in 1973 and took bhikkhu ordination the following year at Wat Pah Pong with Ven. Ajahn Chah. He was one of the first residents at Wat Pah Nanachat, the international monastery in north-east Thailand.

Having spent four years in Thailand, he went back to Canada to visit his family in 1977. Instead of returning to Thailand, he was asked by Ajahn Chah to join Ajahn Sumedho at the Hampstead Vihara in London. Later, he was involved in the establishment of both the Chithurst and Harnham monasteries in the UK.

“In 1985, invited by the Wellington Theravada Buddhist Association, he moved to New Zealand, accompanied by Venerable Thanavaro, where he lived for 10 years, setting up Bodhinyanarama monastery.

In 1995 he came to the UK to assist Ajahn Sumedho at Amaravati and stayed for four years before returning to New Zealand, where he lived until 2002. From that time until 2011 he lived in Ottawa caring for his mother. In 2006 he founded Tisarana Buddhist Monastery in Perth, Ontario, where he is currently the abbot.

“Tranquil, cool, and useful”

Established in 2010, the Buddhadāsa Indapañño Archives (BIA) collects, maintains, and makes available the original works of the Thai Buddhist master Buddhadāsa Bhikkhu. Also known as Suan Mokkh Bangkok, BIA is an innovative place for fostering mutual understanding between religious traditions, and for studying and practicing Dhamma in the heart of Bangkok.

BIA operates in line with the “Three Resolutions” of Ajahn Buddhadāsa, namely, to try our best to:
•​ help everyone pe*****te to the heart of their own religion;
•​ create mutual good understanding among all religions;
•​ work together to drag the world out from materialism.
