Clearing the Confusion with Buddha’s Blessings

Manjushri Statue

I’m studying for an exam this weekend on Buddhist scriptures *
I’m also nursing a flu-ey headache, my brain feels like dough, and the dogs are restless with the fireworks.
(Are the sonic booms really necessary?)
=(lots to transform)

What to do?!
Playing about in the world wide web of distraction probably isn’t recommended. But I do like sharing Dharma when I get the chance, and I thought this might help…

Manjushri’s mantra

is good for clearing the clouds of confusion from our minds
OM AH RA PA TSA NA DHI

Manjushri is the Buddha of Wisdom.
Reciting his mantra with faith definitely helps, especially when you’re thinking things through.
Especially when you’ve thought things through a lot, and are only getting more and more confused, even perhaps a little perturbed.

 Sad but true. Any anxious thought swimming round your head, if unchecked, will rapidly grow to an alarming size. <((((º>

Kadampa Life

I have been in New York City for the last ten days, on the occasion of attending the city Temple opening for Kadampa Meditation Center NYC and the North Eastern Dharma Celebration in upstate New York.

The new Buddhist Temple in Chelsea is a three-dimensional peace-space, refuge from the busy streets and lives outside. An enormous

Buddha Shakyamuni seems to float in mid-sky, surrounded by the most ethereal looking statues I have yet seen in the New Kadampa Tradition. I loved seeing a blissful Great Mother Prajnaparamita next to a knowing, smiling Tara. There are a lot of women in this city, and a lot who attend the Buddhist center, and it seems timely and inspiring to have these female enlightened beings in pride of place, perfect role models both.
