Lions Roar : July 2019
The Shakyamuni and Amitabha statues came from Australia when I took a seminar there. Relics of the sixteenth Karmapa were placed inside, thanks to our local Karma Kagyu temple. The Medicine Buddha statue came from somewhere in Manila, and the teacher who gave me my refuge and five vows placed articles inside it. —Ronald Recio, Manila, Philippines I brought the Buddha head home from India. I wasn’t meditating at that time, but the seed was planted. I remember putting the Buddha’s head somewhere that my eye would catch it easily, so that if even for a brief moment, I saw the smile, I could ask myself, “What does it mean?” Now the Buddha is on my altar, and we smile together! I learned how to meditate and now I meditate every day. —Ieva Dainauskaite, London My real altar is here at my desk with my teachers in print: Lama Yeshe, Pema Chödrön, Shohaku Okumura, Jack Kornfield, Red Pine, etc. They open and close the dharma for me morning and evening; we debate together Tibetan-style and sit Zen-style. This is where the Buddha and I sit face-to-face. This is where I contemplate the arising and falling of all the myriad things and how I can be a better person when I leave the room. —Nan McMillan, Santa Fe I’m a veteran, retired nurse, and Buddhist. My Buddha and Green Tara were found in an antique store in San Juan. I have two sets of mala beads. One was given to me by my wife as a birthday blessing, and the other I made. The big book is Awakening of The Heart by Thich Nhat Hanh. The small brown book is where I jot down everything related to Buddhism. In this book I’ve added the following: “However many holy words you read, how- ever many you speak, what good will they do you if you do not act upon them?” I try. —Victor Córdova, Bronxville, New York What Buddhist quote have you put up in your home or office?
