“Nembutsu is a refuge, nembutsu is a comfort, nembutsu is grace, nembutsu is an inspiration, nembutsu is freedom, nembutsu is joy, nembutsu is life and happiness!” ~ Vajrapala
Are you in need of refuge, comfort, grace, inspiration, freedom or joy? Do you have five minutes to spare a day? Are you ready to let some light into your life? Sign up for our free course, 30 days of nembutsu, by putting your email into the box below.
This course is designed to introduce you to the nembutsu, and to help you set up a regular nembutsu practice. It includes an introductory essay and 30 daily inspirational emails.
Nembutsu literally means ‘mindfulness of the Buddha’ and it involves connecting with something wholesome by reciting the name of Amida Buddha, the Buddha of Infinite Light. It is a commonplace practise for Buddhists in the East but less known (for now!) by Western Buddhists. It is simple to do, it doesn’t require much time (this course suggests five minutes of practice a day), and it is accessible to everyone. It is also a window into the whole of the Buddha’s teachings.
We launched this course on the 1st November and so far over 140 people have been practising all over the world. When you’ve signed up, feel free to join some of them on Friends of Amida and share your experience of the practice. Enter your email address below, and your first email will arrive tomorrow.
