The Essence Of Love
Every day, every hour, every minute, every second, whether you are praying, working, driving, cooking, sleeping, eating, lying and even breathing or whatever, learn to be mindful of your thoughts, actions and speech.
Make it a natural way of life and realise the calmness within; feel the happiness that arises and know that anyone can attain this state of calmness. It is a practise that everyone should be with more awareness and see the difference in one self. It gives you hope and happiness when one is more calm, have more patience and tolerance towards others' behaviour and not being judgmental of them, thus creating a situation of harmony between one another.
From pettiness to nothing, from pride to humble, from ignorance to wisdom. Do this daily and you ease your suffering and cause happiness to yourself and others too.

This is Mikaeri Amida 見返り阿弥陀 also Amida Looking Back The famous Mikaeri Amida, a statue showing Amida looking back, is located at Zenrin-ji Temple in Kyoto. Zenrin-ji,is also known as Eikando. One of the chief priests of this temple was Yokan 1033-1111, who is commonly known as Eikan 永観. According to legends from the temple, on the early morning of 15 Feb. 1082, Eikan was conducting "Nembutsu" chants to Amida Buddha while walking around the altar. When the Amida statue stepped down from the altar and began to lead Eikan to salvation, the monk became stunned and stopped walking. This prompted Amida to look back over the left shoulder and proclaim "Eikan, you are slow." Eikan then awoke from his dream, deeply impressed by the merciful head-turned pose of Amida. He pleaded with the Buddha to keep the pose forever. Since then, this Amida statue has been known as the "Mikaeri Amida Amida Looking Back." This pose symbolizes Amida's mercy and patience in waiting for those who are late in gaining faith. Eikan builted the hospital in Zenrin-ji and planted plam trees to feed plam fruits to the poor as medicine. The plam trees are known as "Hidenbai". He also introduced the practice of Nenbutsu, a Chinese practice which was quite new in Japan, into the temple, and cultivated its observance among the monks and devotees.Zenrin-ji is the head temple of Jodo-shu Seizan Zenrin-ji sect. The temple has more than 1,100 years of history and is dedicated to Amida. Due to a merciful pose of Mikaeri Amida, the temple attracts many believers and people through the world. The temple is also well-known as "Eikando in maple leaves", because of its beautiful garden filled with many maple trees. In late November, many people visit the temple to worship the Amida and enjoy the scenery. The style of the image shows a moderate way in late Heian Period but the decorative wave of clothes shows that this might be made by a sculptor in Kyoto in early Kamakura Period.The statue is also designated an Important Cultural Property by the Japanese government. #pureland#amida#zen#buddhism#Amitabha#禅林寺#念仏#amitofo#meditation#阿弥陀佛#mindfulness
