Prayer and Unity Lead to Powerful Growth



District Profile: River District, of downtown New Orleans.

SGI-USA’s River District is located in the heart of New Orleans, the
birthplace of jazz and home to some of the richest culture in the United
States.

River District members have been fighting heart and soul to create a
kosen-rufu bastion in downtown New Orleans, and their years of effort is
bearing fruit. Discussion meeting attendance has blossomed to an
average of more than 30 members and guests. And in 2016 alone, 11 people
have received the Gohonzon.

Every Tuesday and Thursday morning, members gather for chanting
sessions to call forth the bodhisattvas of New Orleans. In addition,
district leaders keep in close communication by reporting each time they
visit members and have dialogues with friends about Buddhism.

River District members have made significant strides in developing
downtown New Orleans into a land of harmony amid diversity, actualizing
the principle of “many in body, one in mind.”

Q: HOW HAS RIVER DISTRICT DEVELOPED INTO SUCH A STRONG FORCE FOR KOSEN-RUFU?

 

Thomasine Bartlett
District Women’s Leader

riverdistrict_thomasine-bartlettA: I’ve
been practicing in New Orleans since 1977. I was shocked to find a
religion I could practice that still let me be myself.

There weren’t hard-and-fast rules about behavior other than trying to
uphold the basic philosophy of Buddhism that all people have the Buddha
nature.

In the beginning, I didn’t see tangible benefits, but I became a
great deal more confident in myself. I’d always wanted to do something
to better the world, and I now knew what to do: kosen-rufu!

In the mid-1980s, I began chanting to develop a district in downtown
New Orleans. While the city has a lot of history, especially as the
birthplace of jazz and where Mardi Gras happens, it continues to fall
victim to segregation and mistrust.

I vowed to develop a district that would bring people together and
create beautiful harmony amid diversity. We finally established River
District, which covers downtown New Orleans and the French Quarter.

Every Tuesday and Thursday at 7 a.m., I host district chanting
sessions for the unity of the district and to call forth many more
Bodhisattvas of the Earth in New Orleans. Whenever I chant, I open the
windows and take a good look at the neighborhood. I then chant,
picturing each Nam-myoho-renge-kyo I recite penetrating the whole
community. I imagine ripples of harmony and beauty spreading throughout
the city.

Through our prayer as a district, we continue developing unity
for kosen-rufu. As a result, we have attracted many youth and new
members, welcoming some 30 to 40 people to our monthly discussion
meetings.

Like any district, we do have challenges, but our united spirit to do
kosen-rufu in New Orleans as SGI President Ikeda’s disciples always
helps us find a way forward. Our district has become the example of
harmony amid diversity in New Orleans that I have been chanting for all
these many decades. I can now see that no effort is ever wasted.

 

Tim Foushee
District Men’s Leader

riverdistrict_tim-fousheeA:
My greatest benefit of practicing Nichiren Buddhism is having grown up
in the organization. My family joined the SGI-USA in 1979 in
Philadelphia, when I was 3. I attended so many activities that I feel as
though the pioneer members raised me, and I became a cultured person,
who could talk to people of all backgrounds and relate to all kinds of
situations. At age 10, I started playing drums in the young men’s Brass
Band, traveling all around the country to perform in front of thousands.
I never would’ve experienced that without the SGI. Though I was not
always a model Buddhist, no one judged me or gave up on me.

Tight communication and united prayer have been the key to our
district’s development. We communicate every day about the actions we
are taking to support the members.

For example, after we visit members, we take a photo with them and
share it with the district leaders. We strive to have the same spirit as
President Ikeda to not leave a single member behind. As a result, we
have 30 to 40 people at our discussion meetings, and about 20 at our
study meetings.

Each district leader is unique. Our district women’s and young
women’s leaders are university professors, while I’m known in the New
Orleans club scene as “The Buddha on Bourbon Street.” Some of us
introduce many people to Buddhism, others focus on visiting the members
and guests, while others bring strong Buddhist study to the table. We
complement one another beautifully.

Based on our vow for kosen-rufu, we unite around our strengths and
have developed a strong team. River District is truly a family. Whenever
we have familylike struggles, before pointing fingers or getting
self-righteous, we take it to the Gohonzon and discuss matters as
Buddhas, making our unity ever stronger in the process.

riverdistrict_discussionmeeting

Four Keys to Our Progress:

1. Strong and consistent prayer to call forth Bodhisattvas of the
Earth in New Orleans and for each member to have a faith experience.
2. Constant reporting among district leaders about daily efforts to encourage members and share Buddhism.
3. Strong unity among the district leaders to complement one another’s strengths.
4. Giving the youth as many opportunities as possible to express ideas and lead meetings.

William Moody
District Young Men’s Leader

riverdistrict_william-moodyA:
I began practicing Nichiren Buddhism in 2013. Before then, I was
smoking two packs of cigarettes a day, consuming lots of alcohol and
using a number of drugs recreationally. After I received the Gohonzon, I
felt more vibrant and alive, and I put my life on a healthier
trajectory. Chanting consistently made me feel happier, I developed a
strong sense of purpose and identity, and I learned to overcome my
tendency to seek happiness outside myself. I simply lost the desire to
abuse drugs and alcohol.

The district has been the place where I have developed my faith,
especially after taking responsibility as the district young men’s
leader. Having the responsibility to study and support the members
always helps me whenever I find myself in a rut.

I have seen amazing development in the district, especially with 11
people receiving the Gohonzon this year alone! The key to our growth has
been strong and consistent prayer. Every Tuesday and Thursday morning,
we gather at Thomasine’s home to chant, and every Tuesday evening we
hold a meeting, which usually turns into an introductory meeting with
a handful of guests.

In addition, one young men’s division member who received the
Gohonzon in March 2016 has been helping me encourage the young men in
the district. He brings out guys whom I haven’t even been able to reach
and is now a unit leader.

I’m determined for River District to lead kosen-rufu in America by
having new Bodhisattvas of the Earth flock to our district and by
raising many more capable youth.

 

Elena Daniele
District Young Women’s Leader

riverdistrict_elena-danieleA: This
district is my foundation. When I started attending meetings as a guest
in Boston in 2011, one of the district leaders asked if I was chanting.
I told her, “No.” I was more attracted to Buddhism intellectually, as a
beautiful philosophy, rather than to the religious aspect of it. But
the members and their stories kept me going to meetings.

She wholeheartedly encouraged me, saying: “This is a practice. To
understand it, you actually have to do it.” I have since received the
Gohonzon and have seen wonderful benefits through my practice. The
members of my first district in Boston supported me so warmly.

In 2013, I was offered a job at Tulane University in New Orleans as
an Italian language instructor and moved here. I immediately jumped into
River District activities but missed all the members back in Boston.
SGI President Ikeda’s guidance that always gives me hope is “Continue to
ascend step by step, one by one, the mountains large and small that
rise before us each day” (p. 16). I began chanting to win in my present
circumstances and support my district to become more youthful and
dynamic.

As a district young women’s leader, I have made visiting members and
talking with them one-to-one my priority. I try to get to know each of
the young women on a personal level and develop bonds of trust and
friendship. At times I feel overwhelmed with my leadership
responsibilities and SGI activities, but I always remember Sensei’s
guidance to challenge the task in front of me. This year, many youth
have joined our district, and they just seem to understand the practice
right away!

Rather than living in fear of my circumstances, through my Buddhist
practice and leadership opportunities, I have found a solid philosophy
that enables me to live with a positive attitude. This change in
attitude has been my greatest benefit, and I couldn’t have developed
this without the unconditional support of my fellow SGI members.

Sutta Piṭaka -Digha Nikāya DN 9 -
Poṭṭhapāda Sutta
{excerpt}
— The questions of Poṭṭhapāda — Poṭṭhapāda asks various questions reagrding the nature of Saññā. Note: plain texts

Now,
lord, does perception arise first, and knowledge after; or does
knowledge arise first, and perception after; or do perception &
knowledge arise simultaneously?

Potthapada, perception arises
first, and knowledge after. And the arising of knowledge comes from the
arising of perception. One discerns, ‘It’s in dependence on this that my
knowledgehas arisen.’ Through this line of reasoning one can realize
how perception arises first, and knowledge after, and how the arising of
knowledge comes from the arising of perception.DN 22 - (D ii 290)

Sutta Piṭaka -Digha Nikāya DN 9 -
Poṭṭhapāda Sutta
{excerpt}
— The questions of Poṭṭhapāda — Poṭṭhapāda asks various questions reagrding the nature of Saññā. Note: plain texts

Now,
lord, does perception arise first, and knowledge after; or does
knowledge arise first, and perception after; or do perception &
knowledge arise simultaneously?

Potthapada, perception arises
first, and knowledge after. And the arising of knowledge comes from the
arising of perception. One discerns, ‘It’s in dependence on this that my
knowledgehas arisen.’ Through this line of reasoning one can realize
how perception arises first, and knowledge after, and how the arising of
knowledge comes from the arising of perception.DN 22 - (D ii 290)

II. Observation of Vedanā

Introduction

Thus have I heard: 


On
one occasion, the Bhagavā was staying among the Kurus at
Kammāsadhamma,a market town of the Kurus. There, he addressed the
bhikkhus:

– Bhikkhus.
– Bhaddante answered the bhikkhus. The Bhagavā said: 


This, bhikkhus, is the path that leads to nothing but the purification
of beings, the overcoming of sorrow and lamentation, the disappearance
of dukkha-domanassa, the attainment of the right way, the realization of
Nibbāna, that is to say the four satipaṭṭhānas.

Which four?
Here, bhikkhus, a bhikkhu dwells observing kāya in kāya, ātāpī
sampajāno, satimā, having given up abhijjhā-domanassa towards the world
He dwells observing vedanā in vedanā, ātāpī sampajāno, satimā, having
given up abhijjhā-domanassa towards the world. He dwells observing citta
in citta, ātāpī sampajāno, satimā, having given up abhijjhā-domanassa
towards the world. He dwells observing dhamma·s in dhamma·s, ātāpī
sampajāno, satimā, having given up abhijjhā-domanassa towards the world.

I. Kāyānupassanā
A. Section on ānāpāna
And
how, bhikkhus, does a bhikkhu dwell observing kāya in kāya? Here,
bhikkhus, a bhikkhu, having gone to the forest or having gone at the
root of a tree or having gone to an empty room, sits down folding the
legs crosswise, setting kāya upright, and setting sati parimukhaṃ. Being
thus sato he breathes in, being thus sato he breathes out. Breathing in
long he understands: ‘I am breathing in long’; breathing out long he
understands: ‘I am breathing out long’; breathing in short he
understands: ‘I am breathing in short’; breathing out short he
understands: ‘I am breathing out short’; he trains himself: ‘feeling the
whole kāya, I will breathe in’; he trains himself: ‘feeling the whole
kāya, I will breathe out’; he trains himself: ‘calming down the
kāya-saṅkhāras, I will breathe in’; he trains himself: ‘calming down the
kāya-saṅkhāras, I will breathe out’.

Just as, bhikkhus, a
skillful turner or a turner’s apprentice, making a long turn,
understands: ‘I am making a long turn’; making a short turn, he
understands: ‘I am making a short turn’; in the same way, bhikkhus, a
bhikkhu, breathing in long, understands: ‘I am breathing in long’;
breathing out long he understands: ‘I am breathing out long’; breathing
in short he understands: ‘I am breathing in short’; breathing out short
he understands: ‘I am breathing out short’; he trains himself: ‘feeling
the whole kāya, I will breathe in’; he trains himself: ‘feeling the
whole kāya, I will breathe out’; he trains himself: ‘calming down the
kāya-saṅkhāras, I will breathe in’; he trains himself: ‘calming down the
kāya-saṅkhāras, I will breathe out’.

Thus he dwells observing
kāya in kāya internally, or he dwells observing kāya in kāya externally,
or he dwells observing kāya in kāya internally and externally; he
dwells observing the samudaya of phenomena in kāya, or he dwells
observing the passing away of phenomena in kāya, or he dwells observing
the samudaya and passing away of phenomena in kāya; or else,
[realizing:] “this is kāya!” sati is present in him, just to the extent
of mere ñāṇa and mere paṭissati, he dwells detached, and does not cling
to anything in the world. Thus, bhikkhus, a bhikkhu dwells observing
kāya in kāya. 


B. Section on postures

Furthermore,
bhikkhus, a bhikkhu, while walking, understands: ‘I am walking’, or
while standing he understands: ‘I am standing’, or while sitting he
understands: ‘I am sitting’, or while lying down he understands: ‘I am
lying down’. Or else, in whichever position his kāya is disposed, he
understands it accordingly. 


Thus he dwells observing kāya in
kāya internally, or he dwells observing kāya in kāya externally, or he
dwells observing kāya in kāya internally and externally; he dwells
observing the samudaya of phenomena in kāya, or he dwells observing the
passing away of phenomena in kāya, or he dwells observing the samudaya
and passing away of phenomena in kāya; or else, [realizing:] “this is
kāya!” sati is present in him, just to the extent of mere ñāṇa and mere
paṭissati, he dwells detached, and does not cling to anything in the
world. Thus, bhikkhus, a bhikkhu dwells observing kāya in kāya. 
Thus he
dwells observing kāya in kāya internally, or he dwells observing kāya
in kāya externally, or he dwells observing kāya in kāya internally and
externally; he dwells observing the samudaya of phenomena in kāya, or he
dwells observing the passing away of phenomena in kāya, or he dwells
observing the samudaya and passing away of phenomena in kāya; or else,
[realizing:] “this is kāya!” sati is present in him, just to the extent
of mere ñāṇa and mere paṭissati, he dwells detached, and does not cling
to anything in the world. Thus, bhikkhus, a bhikkhu dwells observing
kāya in kāya. 


C. Section on sampajañña

Furthermore,
bhikkhus, a bhikkhu, while approaching and while departing, acts with
sampajañña, while looking ahead and while looking around, he acts with
sampajañña, while bending and while stretching, he acts with sampajañña,
while wearing the robes and the upper robe and while carrying the bowl,
he acts with sampajañña, while eating, while drinking, while chewing,
while tasting, he acts with sampajañña, while attending to the business
of defecating and urinating, he acts with sampajañña, while walking,
while standing, while sitting, while sleeping, while being awake, while
talking and while being silent, he acts with sampajañña. 


Thus
he dwells observing kāya in kāya internally, or he dwells observing
kāya in kāya externally, or he dwells observing kāya in kāya internally
and externally; he dwells observing the samudaya o phenomena in kāya, or
he dwells observing the passing away of phenomena\ in kāya, or he
dwells observing the samudaya and passing away of phenomena in kāya; or
else, [realizing:] “this is kāya!” sati is present in him, just to the
extent of mere ñāṇa and mere paṭissati, he dwells detached, and does not
cling to anything in the world. Thus, bhikkhus, a bhikkhu dwells
observing kāya in kāya. 


D. Section on Repulsiveness

Furthermore,bhikkhus,
a bhikkhu considers this very body, from the soles of the feet up and
from the hair on the head down, which is delimited by its skin and full
of various kinds of impurities: “In this kāya, there are the hairs of
the head, hairs of the body, nails, teeth, skin, flesh, tendons, bones,
bone marrow, kidneys, heart, liver, pleura, spleen, lungs, intestines,
mesentery, stomach with its contents, feces, bile, phlegm, pus, blood,
sweat, fat, tears, grease, saliva, nasal mucus, synovial fluid and
urine.” 


Just as if, bhikkhus, there was a bag having two
openings and filled with various kinds of grain, such as hill-paddy,
paddy, mung beans, cow-peas, sesame seeds and husked rice. A man with
good eyesight, having unfastened it, would consider [its contents]:
“This is hill-paddy, this is paddy, those are mung beans, those are
cow-peas, those are sesame seeds and this is husked rice;” in the same
way, bhikkhus, a bhikkhu considers this very body, from the soles of the
feet up and from the hair on the head down, which is delimited by its
skin and full of various kinds of impurities: “In this kāya, there are
the hairs of the head, hairs of the body, nails, teeth, skin, flesh,
tendons, bones, bone marrow, kidneys, heart, liver, pleura, spleen,
lungs, intestines, mesentery, stomach with its contents, feces, bile,
phlegm, pus, blood, sweat, fat, tears, grease,
saliva, nasal mucus, synovial fluid and urine.”

Thus
he dwells observing kāya in kāya internally, or he dwells observing
kāya in kāya externally, or he dwells observing kāya in kāya internally
and externally; he dwells observing the samudaya of phenomena in kāya,
or he dwells observing the passing away of phenomena in kāya, or he
dwells observing the samudaya and passing away of phenomena in kāya; or
else, [realizing:] “this is kāya!” sati is present in him, just to the
extent of mere ñāṇa and mere paṭissati, he dwells detached, and does not
cling to anything in the world. Thus, bhikkhus, a bhikkhu dwells
observing kāya in kāya. 


E. Section on the Elements

Furthermore,
bhikkhus, a bhikkhu reflects on this very kāya, however it is placed,
however it is disposed: “In this kāya, there is the earth element, the
water element, the fire element and the air element.” 


Just as,
bhikkhus, a skillful butcher or a butcher’s apprentice, having killed a
cow, would sit at a crossroads cutting it into pieces; in the same way,
bhikkhus, a bhikkhu reflects on this very kāya, however it is placed,
however it is disposed: “In this kāya, there is the earth element, the
water element, the fire element and the air element.”

Thus he
dwells observing kāya in kāya internally, or he dwells observing kāya in
kāya externally, or he dwells observing kāya in kāya internally and
externally; he dwells observing the samudaya of phenomena in kāya, or he
dwells observing the passing away of phenomena in kāya, or he dwells
observing the samudaya and passing away of phenomena in kāya; or else,
[realizing:] “this is kāya!” sati is present in him, just to the extent
of mere ñāṇa and mere paṭissati, he dwells detached, and does not cling
to anything in the world. Thus, bhikkhus, a bhikkhu dwells observing
kāya in kāya.

F. Section on the nine charnel grounds
(1)
Furthermore,
bhikkhus, a bhikkhu, just as if he was seeing a dead body, cast away in
a charnel ground, one day dead, or two days dead or three days dead,
swollen, bluish and festering, he considers this very kāya: “This kāya
also is of such a nature, it is going to become like this, and is not
free from such a condition.” 


Thus he dwells observing kāya in
kāya internally, or he dwells observing kāya in kāya externally, or he
dwells observing kāya in kāya internally and externally; he dwells
observing the samudaya of phenomena in kāya, or he dwells observing the
passing away of phenomena in kāya, or he dwells observing the samudaya

paṭissati, he dwells detached, and does not cling to anything in the
world. Thus, bhikkhus, a bhikkhu dwells observing kāya in kāya.

(2)

eaten by tigers, being eaten by panthers, being eaten by various kinds
of beings, he considers this very kāya: “This kāya also is of such a

in kāya internally and externally; he dwells observing the samudaya of
phenomena in kāya, or he dwells observing the passing away of phenomena
in kāya, or he dwells observing the samudaya and passing away of

in him, just to the extent of mere ñāṇa and mere paṭissati, he dwells
detached, and does not cling to anything in the world. Thus, bhikkhus, a
bhikkhu dwells observing kāya in kāya.

(3)
Furthermore,
bhikkhus, a bhikkhu, just as if he was seeing a dead body, cast away in a
charnel ground, a squeleton with flesh and blood, held together by
tendons, he considers this very kāya: “This kāya also is of such a

internally, or he dwells observing kāya in kāya externally, or he dwells
observing kāya in kāya internally and externally; he dwells observing
the samudaya of phenomena in kāya, or he dwells observing the passing
away of phenomena in kāya, or he dwells observing the samudaya and
passing away of phenomena in kāya; or else, [realizing:] “this is kāya!”

paṭissati, he dwells detached, and does not cling to anything in the
world. Thus, bhikkhus, a bhikkhu dwells observing kāya in kāya.

(4)
Furthermore,

acharnel ground, a squeleton without flesh and smeared with blood,
heldtogether by tendons, he considers this very kāya: “This kāya also is
of such a nature, it is going to become like this, and is not free from

sati is present in him, just to the extent of mere ñāṇa and mere
paṭissati, he dwells detached, and does not cling to anything in the
world. Thus, bhikkhus, a bhikkhu dwells observing kāya in kāya.

(5)
Furthermore,
bhikkhus, a bhikkhu, just as if he was seeing a dead body, cast away in
a charnel ground, a squeleton without flesh nor blood, held together by
tendons, he considers this very kāya: “This kāya also is of such a
nature, it is going to become like this, and is not free from such a
condition.” 


Thus he dwells observing kāya in kāya internally,
or he dwells observing kāya in kāya externally, or he dwells observing
kāya in kāya internally and externally; he dwells observing the samudaya
of phenomena in kāya, or he dwells observing the passing away of
phenomena in kāya, or he dwells observing the samudaya and passing away

world. Thus, bhikkhus, a bhikkhu dwells observing kāya in kāya.

(7)
Furthermore,

II. Observation of Vedanā

Introduction

Which
four? Here, bhikkhus, a bhikkhu dwells observing kāya in kāya, ātāpī
sampajāno, satimā, having given up abhijjhā-domanassa towards the world.
He dwells observing vedanā in vedanā, ātāpī sampajāno, satimā, having

(The Mirror of the Dhamma)

I
will expound the discourse on the Dhamma which is called Dhammādāsa,
possessed of which the ariyasāvaka, if he so desires, can declare of
himself: ‘For me, there is no more niraya, no more tiracchāna-yoni, no
more pettivisaya, no more state of unhappiness, of misfortune, of
misery, I am a sotāpanna, by nature free from states of misery, certain
of being destined to sambodhi.

And what, Ānanda, is that
discourse on the Dhamma which is called Dhammādāsa, possessed of which
the ariyasāvaka, if he so desires, can declare of himself: ‘For me,
there is no more niraya, no more tiracchāna-yoni, no more pettivisaya,
no more state of unhappiness, of misfortune, of misery, I am a
sotāpanna, by nature free from states of misery, certain of being
destined to sambodhi?

Here, Ānanda, an ariyasāvaka is endowed with Buddhe aveccappasāda:
IV. Observation of Dhammas

A. Section on the Nīvaraṇas

And
furthermore, bhikkhus, how does a bhikkhu dwell observing dhammas in
dhammas? Here, bhikkhus, a bhikkhu dwells observing dhammas in dhammas
with reference to the five nīvaraṇas. And furthermore, bhikkhus, how
does a bhikkhu dwell observing dhammas in dhammas with reference to the
five nīvaraṇas?

Here, bhikkhus, a bhikkhu, there being
kāmacchanda present within, understands: “there is kāmacchanda within
me”; there not being kāmacchanda present within, he understands: “there
is no kāmacchanda within me”; he understands how the unarisen
kāmacchanda comes to arise; he understands how the arisen kāmacchanda is
abandoned; and he understands how the abandoned kāmacchanda does not
come to arise in the future.

Here, bhikkhus, a bhikkhu, there
being byāpāda present within, understands: “there is byāpāda within me”;
there not being byāpāda present within, he understands: “there is no
byāpāda within me”; he understands how the unarisen byāpāda comes to
arise; he understands how the arisen byāpāda is abandoned; and he
understands how the abandoned byāpāda does not come to arise in the
future.

Here, bhikkhus, a bhikkhu, there being thīnamiddhā
present within, understands: “there is thīnamiddhā within me”; there not
being thīnamiddhā present within, he understands: “there is no
thīnamiddhā within me”; he understands how the unarisen thīnamiddhā
comes to arise; he understands how the arisen thīnamiddhā is abandoned;
and he understands how the abandoned thīnamiddhā does not come to arise
in the future.

Here, bhikkhus, a bhikkhu, there being
uddhacca-kukkucca present within, understands: “there is
uddhacca-kukkucca within me”; there not being uddhacca-kukkucca present
within, he understands: “there is no uddhacca-kukkucca within me”; he
understands how the unarisen uddhacca-kukkucca comes to arise; he
understands how the arisen uddhacca-kukkucca is abandoned; and he
understands how the abandoned uddhacca-kukkucca does not come to arise
in the future

Here, bhikkhus, a bhikkhu, there being vicikicchā
present within, understands: “there is vicikicchā within me”; there not
being vicikicchā present within, he understands: “there is no vicikicchā
within me”; he understands how the unarisen vicikicchā comes to arise;
he understands how the arisen vicikicchā is abandoned; and he
understands how the abandoned vicikicchā does not come to arise in the
future.

Thus he dwells observing dhammas in dhammas internally,
or he dwells observing dhammas in dhammas externally, or he dwells
observing dhammas in dhammas internally and externally; he dwells
observing the samudaya of phenomena in dhammas, or he dwells observing
the passing away of phenomena in dhammas, or he dwells observing the
samudaya and passing away of phenomena in dhammas; or else, [realizing:]
“these are dhammas!” sati is present in him, just to the extent of mere
ñāṇa and mere paṭissati, he dwells detached, and does not cling to
anything in the world. Thus, bhikkhus, a bhikkhu dwells observing
dhammas in dhammas, with reference to the five nīvaraṇas.

B. Section on the Khandhas

And
furthermore, bhikkhus, a bhikkhu dwells observing dhammas in dhammas
with reference to the five khandhas. And furthermore, bhikkhus, how does
a bhikkhu dwell observing dhammas in dhammas with reference to the five
khandhas?

Here, bhikkhus, a bhikkhu [discerns]: “such is rūpa,
such is the samudaya of rūpa, such is the passing away of rūpa; such is
vedanā, such is the samudaya of vedanā, such is the passing away of
vedanā; such is saññā, such is the samudaya of saññā, such is the
passing away of saññā; such is saṅkhāra, such is the samudaya of
saṅkhāra, such is the passing away of saṅkhāra; such is viññāṇa, such is
the samudaya of viññāṇa, such is the passing away of viññāṇa”.

Thus
he dwells observing dhammas in dhammas internally, or he dwells
observing dhammas in dhammas externally, or he dwells observing dhammas
in dhammas internally and externally; he dwells observing the samudaya
of phenomena in dhammas, or he dwells observing the passing away of
phenomena in dhammas, or he dwells observing the samudaya and passing
away of phenomena in dhammas; or else, [realizing:] “these are dhammas!”
sati is present in him, just to the extent of mere ñāṇa and mere
paṭissati, he dwells detached, and does not cling to anything in the
world. Thus, bhikkhus, a bhikkhu dwells observing dhammas in dhammas,
with reference to the five khandhas.

C. Section on the Sense Spheres

And
furthermore, bhikkhus, a bhikkhu dwells observing dhammas in dhammas
with reference to the six internal and external āyatanas. And
furthermore, bhikkhus, how does a bhikkhu dwell observing dhammas in
dhammas with reference to the six internal and external āyatanas?

Here,
bhikkhus, a bhikkhu understands cakkhu, he understands rūpa, he
understands the saṃyojana which arises owing to these two, he
understands how the unarisen saṃyojana comes to arise, he understands
how the arisen saṃyojana is abandoned, and he understands how the
abandoned saṃyojana does not come to arise in the future.

He
understands sota, he understands sadda, he understands the saṃyojana
which arises owing to these two, he understands how the unarisen
saṃyojana comes to arise, he understands how the arisen saṃyojana is
abandoned, and he understands how the abandoned saṃyojana does not come

which arises owing to these two, he understands how the unarisen
saṃyojana comes to arise, he understands how the arisen saṃyojana is
abandoned, and he understands how the abandoned saṃyojana does not come
to arise in the future.

He understands kāya, he understands

two, he understands how the unarisen saṃyojana comes to arise, he
understands how the arisen saṃyojana is abandoned, and he understands
how the abandoned saṃyojana does not come to arise in the future.

He
understands mana, he understands dhammas, he understands the saṃyojana
which arises owing to these two, he understands how the unarisen
saṃyojana comes to arise, he understands how the arisen saṃyojana is
abandoned, and he understands how the abandoned saṃyojana does not come
to arise in the future.

Thus he dwells observing dhammas in
dhammas internally, or he dwells observing dhammas in dhammas
externally, or he dwells observing dhammas in dhammas internally and
externally; he dwells observing the samudaya of phenomena in dhammas, or
he dwells observing the passing away of phenomena in dhammas, or he
dwells observing the samudaya and passing away of phenomena in dhammas;
or else, [realizing:] “these are dhammas!” sati is present in him, just
to the extent of mere ñāṇa and mere paṭissati, he dwells detached, and
does not cling to anything in the world. Thus, bhikkhus, a bhikkhu
dwells observing dhammas in dhammas, with reference to the six internal
and external āyatanas.

D. Section on the Bojjhaṅgas

And
furthermore, bhikkhus, a bhikkhu dwells observing dhammas in dhammas
with reference to the seven bojjhaṅgas. And furthermore, bhikkhus, how
does a bhikkhu dwell observing dhammas in dhammas with reference to the
seven bojjhaṅgas?

Here, bhikkhus, a bhikkhu, there being the sati

sambojjhaṅga within me”; there not being the sati sambojjhaṅga present
within, he understands: “there is no sati sambojjhaṅga within me”; he
understands how the unarisen sati sambojjhaṅga comes to arise; he
understands how the arisen sati sambojjhaṅga is developed to perfection.

There
being the dhammavicaya sambojjhaṅga present within, he understands:
“there is the dhammavicaya sambojjhaṅga within me”; there not being the
dhammavicaya sambojjhaṅga present within, he understands: “there is no

dhammavicaya sambojjhaṅga comes to arise; he understands how the arisen
dhammavicaya sambojjhaṅga is developed to perfection.

There being
the vīriya sambojjhaṅga present within, he understands: “there is the

within me”; he understands how the unarisen passaddhi sambojjhaṅga comes
to arise; he understands how the arisen passaddhi sambojjhaṅga is
developed to perfection.

There being the samādhi sambojjhaṅga
present within, he understands: “there is the samādhi sambojjhaṅga
within me”; there not being the samādhi sambojjhaṅga present within, he
understands: “there is no samādhi sambojjhaṅga within me”; he
understands how the unarisen samādhi sambojjhaṅga comes to arise; he
understands how the arisen samādhi sambojjhaṅga is developed to
perfection.

There being the upekkhā sambojjhaṅga present within,
he understands: “there is the upekkhā sambojjhaṅga within me”; there not
being the upekkhā sambojjhaṅga present within, he understands: “there
is no upekkhā sambojjhaṅga within me”; he understands how the unarisen
upekkhā sambojjhaṅga comes to arise; he understands how the arisen
upekkhā sambojjhaṅga is developed to perfection.

Thus he dwells
observing dhammas in dhammas internally, or he dwells observing dhammas
in dhammas externally, or he dwells observing dhammas in dhammas
internally and externally; he dwells observing the samudaya of phenomena
in dhammas, or he dwells observing the passing away of phenomena in
dhammas, or he dwells observing the samudaya and passing away of
phenomena in dhammas; or else, [realizing:] “these are dhammas!” sati is
present in him, just to the extent of mere ñāṇa and mere paṭissati, he
dwells detached, and does not cling to anything in the world. Thus,
bhikkhus, a bhikkhu dwells observing dhammas in dhammas, with reference
to the seven bojjhaṅgas.

E. Section on the Truths

And
furthermore, bhikkhus, a bhikkhu dwells observing dhammas in dhammas
with reference to the four ariya·saccas. And furthermore, bhikkhus, how
does a bhikkhu dwell observing dhammas in dhammas with reference to the
four ariya·saccas?

E1. Exposition of Dukkhasacca

And what,
bhikkhus, is the dukkha ariyasacca? Jāti is dukkha, aging is dukkha
(sickness is dukkha) maraṇa is dukkha, sorrow, lamentation, dukkha,
domanassa and distress is dukkha, association with what is disliked is
dukkha, dissociation from what is liked is dukkha, not to get what one
wants is dukkha; in short, the five upādāna·k·khandhas are dukkha.

And
what, bhikkhus, is jāti? For the various beings in the various classes
of beings, jāti, the birth, the descent [into the womb], the arising [in
the world], the appearance, the apparition of the khandhas, the
acquisition of the āyatanas. This, bhikkhus, is called jāti.

And
what, bhikkhus, is jarā? For the various beings in the various classes
of beings, jarā, the state of being decayed, of having broken [teeth],
of having grey hair, of being wrinkled, the decline of vitality, the
decay of the indriyas: this, bhikkhus, is called jarā.

And what,
bhikkhus, is maraṇa? For the various beings in the various classes of
beings, the decease, the state of shifting [out of existence], the break
up, the disappearance, the death, maraṇa, the passing away, the break
up of the khandhas, the laying down of the corpse: this, bhikkhus, is
called maraṇa.

And what, bhikkhus, is sorrow? In one, bhikkhus,
associated with various kinds of misfortune, touched by various kinds of
dukkha dhammas, the sorrrow, the mourning, the state of grief, the
inner sorrow, the inner great sorrow: this, bhikkhus, is called sorrow.

And
what, bhikkhus, is lamentation? In one, bhikkhus, associated with
various kinds of misfortune, touched by various kinds of dukkha dhammas,
the cries, the lamentations, the weeping, the wailing, the state of
crying, the state of lamentating: this, bhikkhus, is called lamentation.

And
what, bhikkhus, is dukkha? Whatever, bhikkhus, bodily dukkha, bodily
unpleasantness, dukkha engendered by bodily contact, unpleasant
vedayitas: this, bhikkhus, is called dukkha.

And what, bhikkhus,
is domanassa? Whatever, bhikkhus, mental dukkha, mental unpleasantness,
dukkha engendered by mental contact, unpleasant vedayitas: this,
bhikkhus, is called domanassa.

And what, bhikkhus, is despair? In
one, bhikkhus, associated with various kinds of misfortune, touched by
various kinds of dukkha dhammas, the trouble, the despair, the state of
being in trouble, the state of being in despair: this, bhikkhus, is
called despair.

And what, bhikkhus, is the dukkha of being
associated with what is disagreeable? Here, as to the forms, sounds,
tastes, odors, bodily phenomena and mental phenomena there are which are
unpleasing, not enjoyable, unpleasant, or else those who desire one’s
disadvantage, those who desire one’s loss, those who desire one’s
discomfort, those who desire one’s non-liberation from attachment,
meeting, being associated, being together, encountering them: this,
bhikkhus, is called the dukkha of being associated with what is
disagreeable.

And what, bhikkhus, is the dukkha of being
dissociated from what is agreeable? Here, as to the forms, sounds,
tastes, odors, bodily phenomena and mental phenomena there are which are
pleasing, enjoyable, pleasant, or else those who desire one’s
advantage, those who desire one’s benefit, those who desire one’s
comfort, those who desire one’s liberation from attachment, not meeting,
not being associated, not being together, not encountering them: this,
bhikkhus, is called the dukkha of being dissociated from what is
agreeable.

And what, bhikkhus, is the dukkha of not getting what
one wants? In beings, bhikkhus, having the characteristic of being born,
such a wish arises: “oh really, may there not be jāti for us, and
really, may we not come to jāti.” But this is not to be achieved by
wishing. This is the dukkha of not getting what one wants.

In
beings, bhikkhus, having the characteristic of getting old, such a wish
arises: “oh really, may there not be jarā for us, and really, may we not
come to jarā.” But this is not to be achieved by wishing. This is the
dukkha of not getting what one wants.

distress for us, and really, may we not come to sorrow, lamentation,
dukkha, domanassa and distress.” But this is not to be achieved by
wishing. This is the dukkha of not getting what one wants.

And
what, bhikkhus, are in short the five upādānakkhandhas? They are: the
rūpa upādānakkhandha, the vedanā upādānakkhandha, the saññā
upādānakkhandha, the saṅkhāra upādānakkhandha, the viññāṇa
upādānakkhandha. These are called in short, bhikkhus, the five
upādānakkhandhas.

E4. Exposition of Maggasacca

And
what, bhikkhus, is the dukkha·nirodha·gāminī paṭipadā ariyasacca? It is
just this ariya aṭṭhaṅgika magga, that is to say sammādiṭṭhi,
sammāsaṅkappo, sammāvācā, sammākammanto, sammā-ājīvo, sammāvāyāmo,
sammāsati and sammāsamādhi.

And what, bhikkhus, is sammādiṭṭhi?
That, bhikkhus, which is the ñāṇa of dukkha, the ñāṇa of
dukkha-samudaya, the ñāṇa of dukkha-nirodha and the ñāṇa of
dukkha-nirodha-gāmini paṭipada, that is called, bhikkhus, sammādiṭṭhi.

And
what, bhikkhus, are sammāsaṅkappas? Those, bhikkhus, which are
saṅkappas of nekkhamma, saṅkappas of abyāpāda, saṅkappas of avihiṃsā,
those are called, bhikkhus, sammāsaṅkappas.

And what, bhikkhus,
is sammāvācā? That, bhikkhus, which is abstaining from musāvādā,
abstaining from pisuṇa vācā, abstaining from pharusa vācā, and
abstaining from samphappalāpa, that is called, bhikkhus, sammāvācā.

And
what, bhikkhus, is sammā-kammanta? That, bhikkhus, which is abstaining
from pāṇātipāta , abstaining from adinnādāna, abstaining from
abrahmacariya, that is called, bhikkhus, sammā-kammanta.

And
what, bhikkhus, is sammā-ājīva? Here, bhikkhus, a noble disciple, having
abandonned wrong livelihood, supports his life by right means of
livelihood, that is called, bhikkhus, sammā-ājīva.

And what,
bhikkhus, is sammāvāyāma? Here, bhikkhus, a bhikkhu generates his chanda
for the non-arising of unarisen pāpaka and akusala dhammas, he exerts
himself, rouses his viriya, applies vigorously his citta and strives; he
generates his chanda for the forsaking of arisen pāpaka and akusala
dhammas, he exerts himself, rouses his viriya, applies vigorously his
citta and strives; he generates his chanda for the arising of unarisen
kusala dhammas, he exerts himself, rouses his viriya, applies vigorously
his citta and strives; he generates his chanda for the steadfastness of
arisen kusala dhammas, for their absence of confusion, for their
increase, their development, their cultivation and their completion, he
exerts himself, rouses his viriya, applies vigorously his citta and
strives. This is called, bhikkhus, sammāvāyāma.

An what,
bhikkhus, is sammāsati? Here, bhikkhus, a bhikkhu dwells observing kāya
in kāya, ātāpī sampajāno, satimā, having given up abhijjhā-domanassa
towards the world. He dwells observing vedanā in vedanā, ātāpī
sampajāno, satimā, having given up abhijjhā-domanassa towards the world.
He dwells observing citta in citta, ātāpī sampajāno, satimā, having
given up abhijjhā-domanassa towards the world. He dwells observing
dhamma·s in dhamma·s, ātāpī sampajāno, satimā, having given up
abhijjhā-domanassa towards the world. This is called, bhikkhus,
sammāsati.

And what, bhikkhus, is sammāsamādhi? Here, bhikkhus, a
bhikkhu, detached from kāma, detached from akusala dhammas, having
entered in the first jhāna, abides therein, with vitakka and vicāra,
with pīti and sukha born of detachment. With the stilling of
vitakka-vicāra, having entered in the second jhāna, he abides therein
with inner tanquilization, unification of citta, without vitakka nor
vicāra, with pīti and sukha born of samādhi. And with indifference
towards pīti, he abides in upekkha, sato and sampajāno, he experiences
in kāya the sukha which the ariyas describe: ‘one who is equanimous and
mindful dwells in [this] sukha’, having entered in the third jhāna, he
abides therein. Abandoning sukha and abandoning dukkha, somanassa and
domanassa having previously disappeared, without sukha nor dukkha, with
the purity of upekkha and sati, having entered in the fourth jhāna, he
abides therein. This is called, bhikkhus, sammāsamādhi.

This is called, bhikkhus, the dukkha·nirodha·gāminī paṭipadā ariyasacca.

Thus
he dwells observing dhammas in dhammas internally, or he dwells
observing dhammas in dhammas externally, or he dwells observing dhammas
in dhammas internally and externally; he dwells observing the samudaya
of phenomena in dhammas, or he dwells observing the passing away of
phenomena in dhammas, or he dwells observing the samudaya and passing
away of phenomena in dhammas; or else, [realizing:] “these are dhammas!”
sati is present in him, just to the extent of mere ñāṇa and mere
paṭissati, he dwells detached, and does not cling to anything in the
world. Thus, bhikkhus, a bhikkhu dwells observing dhammas in dhammas,
with reference to the four ariya·saccas.

path that leads to nothing but the purification of beings, the
overcoming of sorrow and lamentation, the disappearance of
dukkha-domanassa, the attainment of the right way, the realization of
Nibbāna, that is to say the four satipaṭṭhānas.” Thus has it been said,
and on the basis of all this has it been said.

Thus spoke the Bhagavā. Delighted, the bhikkhus welcomed the words of the Bhagavā.



COVID-19 conspiracy claims, but virus origins still a mystery.
There were still no conclusive answers as to where the disease started.

SARS-CoV-2,
now responsible for more than 200,000 deaths worldwide, was synthesised
by the Wuhan Institute of Virology (WIV), based in the city where the
disease was first identified.

Where Word’s Hunger Struggle Is Headed


Maṇimēkalai , “jewelled belt, girdle of gems”
received a magic
Atchaya Pathiram

(begging bowl) , which always gets filled.
Akshaya pathram Manimegalai the follower of Awakened One with Awareness said that

 “Hunger is the worst kind of  illness.”

“The whole secret of existence is to have no fear.” 

Manimekalai
converted the prison into a hospice to help the needy, teaches the king
the dhamma of the Buddha. In the final five cantos of the epic,
Buddhist teachers recite Four Noble Truths, Twelve Nidanas and other
ideas to her.

Volunteers
must become full-time members to fullfill the vision & aspiration
of his spiritual Manimekala Akshya Pathram. Must be committed to the
cause currently and involve in strategy, growth, and governance of
Akshaya Patra.

The
journey so far and what the future holds in the mission to end hunger
for children and adults in the world. Technology must be  used in mass
production for the fantastic results. Other initiatives of the Akshaya
Patra must help children and adults from underprivileged backgrounds
achieve their dreams.

All
the Governments all over the world allot funds for the governance of
Akshaya Patra and order all the vans used by postal department, police
vans to supply provisions, vegetables and food in edible food packs till
all the curfews are removed.

The state-of-the-art kitchens must become a subject of study and attract curious visitors from around the world.

Partnership
with the Governments all over the world India and various State
Governments, along with the persistent support from corporates,
individual donors, and well-wishers have to help Manimekali Akshya
Pathram to serve millions of underprevilaged children and adults.

Picture
a life in which your every waking moment is spent searching for food.
Your belly is distended and your limbs are emaciated like a starving
child’s. Your hunger is ceaseless and painful, but your throat is no
wider than the eye of a needle. When you find food, you can’t swallow
it. Not even a bite. The hunger persists, and your search continues.
Such is the fate of pretas in Buddhist tradition—the hungry ghosts.

These
poor souls were reborn this way because in past lives they were driven
by desire, greed, anger, and ignorance. While you might find yourself
checking a few of these boxes on any given day, in Buddhism you have to
take such vices to the extreme to end up with such a tortured
existence—like committing murder in a jealous rage. So no need to panic.

It’s
a tradition in many Asian cultures to leave offerings of food for the
hungry ghosts. But this doesn’t really help. It turns out these ghosts
aren’t really searching for food. Or they are, but their search is
misguided. Hunger for the ghosts has nothing to do with food, and
everything to do with what they did in their previous time on earth.
There’s plenty of food for them, but they can’t eat it. Like every
religious parable, there’s an important lesson here: it’s not food they
really need.

Back
here in the human realm, we still look to food to do much more than
nourish our bodies and satisfy our hunger. We turn to food in times of
great joy and great sadness. When something wonderful happens, we
celebrate with a dinner out. We drink champagne, we eat cake, we splurge
on nice meals. Food becomes part of the rejoicing. And the opposite is
true, too. There’s a long tradition of providing food to those who are
grieving. We band together to provide meals to friends in crisis—you
may, at some point in your life, have signed up on a spreadsheet or
email thread to bring meals to someone mourning, someone recovering,
someone struggling. In times of sadness, we instinctively want to
provide comfort in a tangible way. And very often, we do that with food.

Food
is there for all of it—the good times and the bad. And to some extent,
it makes sense. It’s fun to go out and celebrate a raise, an
anniversary, or a graduation. And it feels right that when people are
truly suffering,
the last thing they should worry about is putting together a meal. In
these moments of tragedy or triumph, food is a worthy and welcome ally.

The problem comes when we use food to comfort and reward ourselves when the stakes are much, much lower. Finally
I got the kids to sleep, now I can eat those cookies I’ve been eyeing.
That big meeting today was a mess, time for a big glass of wine.
These mundane highs and lows are challenging. But they are not worthy of great sadness or great celebration. Or, really, food.

And
we know it, too. Imagine going out for dinner to celebrate fixing the
washing machine. Or delivering a meal to a friend who had a bad sunburn.
It sounds ridiculous. But we still give ourselves mini-rewards for
minor successes, and mini-comforts for minor irritations—and they often
involve food. We won’t buy ourselves a celebratory cake, but we might
well take a slice if there’s some in the refrigerator. Or we might find
ourselves a bag of chips or a cold beer. Each of these could easily be
several hundred calories. And worse still, it’s generally at the end of a
long day that we find ourselves wanting this reward or comfort—the
worst possible time for our bodies. Do that regularly, and it adds up
fast.

There’s
a reason we do this, of course. Food is a natural reward. Think of Ivan
Pavlov and his studies of classical conditioning in dogs—he trained
them with food. The comfort foods we usually turn to—the ones full of
starch and sugar—are scientifically proven to improve our mood. Ever
hear someone refer to a particularly enticing snack as being “like
crack”? Eating tasty food seems to activate the same parts of the brain
as addictive drugs and even cause the release of natural opiates.
Studies have shown that carbohydrates in particular increase serotonin
release, the chemical in the body that boosts mood. The more serotonin,
the better you feel. Fatty foods are the same. Brain scans of
participants in a 2011 study, who were fed either a solution of fatty
acids or a saline solution via a feeding tube, showed that those who got
the fatty acids had less activity in the areas of the brain that
controlled sadness, even after listening to “sad classical music.” (Yes,
people actually volunteered for this study—with sad music and a feeding
tube.)

So
what’s wrong with that? Better than actual crack at least, right? If
food really does help with our mood, isn’t that a good thing?

Yes
and no. But mostly no. Remember those hungry ghosts? They get a bit of
relief when they taste the food on their tongues. So do you, studies
tell us—and you’re luckier than the hungry ghosts because at least you
can swallow your chocolate. But that relief is temporary. The bad day
still lingers, smothered by the brownie, pretzel, or muffin. And just
like the hungry ghosts, you aren’t really looking for food. What the
ghosts truly want is relief from the void created by desire, greed,
anger, and ignorance—yet they keep trying to fill that empty feeling
with food, even though it never works. Sound familiar?

Not
only are these self-soothing snacks not all that soothing, but when we
use food to comfort and provide relief from stress, we’re using it at a
time when we can least afford the calories. A recent Ohio State
University study of 58 healthy middle-aged women revealed that
experiencing one or more stressful events the day before eating a single
high-fat meal actually slowed their metabolism. And not just a
little—enough to “add up to almost 11 pounds across a year
according to the authors. Stress seems to cause the body to freak out
and cling to the calories, thinking it might need them later. This may
be a biological holdover from times of famine, or when we weren’t all
that sure when we’d spear our next woolly mammoth. Whatever we’re
stressed about today—whether an ill loved one, a struggling
relationship, a financial burden, or a lousy job—probably won’t cause us
to starve tomorrow. But our bodies haven’t evolved to know the
difference.

And
it gets worse. Overeating for any reason often leads to these same
negative emotional states that then trigger more overeating. A study of
both normal-weight and overweight women in Germany found that they felt
sadness, shame, and anxiety after eating high-calorie foods—with the
overweight women reporting the most intense emotional responses. So we
overeat when we’re sad or stressed, then get more sad and stressed when
we overeat. In between, we gain weight, which is also associated with
depression and makes everything worse. It’s another vicious cycle of
“overeating, weight gain, and depressed mood.”

Luckily,
there are many ways to deal with stress. The healthiest approach is to
take steps to address the actual cause. That may mean facing the reality
of a bad relationship, or seeking out a new job, or saying no to
commitments that have you stretched too thin. Social diversion—basically
hanging out with friends or family—also works well. In fact, of all the
ways to distract yourself, this seems to be the most effective.

What
psychologists call “emotion-oriented coping” is the most dangerous.
This is when you blame yourself, daydream, fantasize, and otherwise
ruminate on your miserable life. Maybe lying in bed listening to sad
music. Don’t do that. This often leads to emotional eating—perhaps
because it just doesn’t work on its own. Awful-izing rarely makes us
feel better.

On
the other hand, meditation and mindfulness—a few minutes of pure
silence and peace—have been shown to help significantly. Similarly,
studies of yoga for relieving stress and anxiety are very promising, and
have even shown that yoga can reduce preoccupations with food for those
with serious eating disorders. Physical exercise has long been known to
improve our moods, and also seems to help us fight anxiety. Exposure to
nature helps many people. You may have to try several things before you
find something that works for you. But don’t let yourself use food as
your cure.

You
will slip up, of course, now and again. These are hard habits to break.
But think carefully about just how often you are engaging in these
behaviors, and see them for what they are—a temporary fix that can cause
a lasting problem. And remember the lesson of the hungry ghosts. The
unsettled self can never be sated with food.

There is no fire like passion
No crime like hatred,
No sorrow like separation,
No sickness like hunger,
And no joy like the joy of freedom.

Gautama Buddha

Zen famously says: when hungry, eat; when tired, sleep.

But all things in moderation - as the Buddha discovered in time to avoid starving to death.

UN News

 Over 820 million people suffering from hunger; new UN report reveals stubborn realities of ‘immense’ global challenge

 Economic Development

After
nearly a decade of progress, the number of people who suffer from
hunger has slowly increased over the past three years, with about one in
every nine people globally suffering from hunger today, the United
Nations said in a new report released on Monday.

This
fact underscores “the immense challenge” to achieving the Zero Hunger
target of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by 2030, according to
the State of Food Security and Nutrition in the World 2019.

The
report, launched on the margins of the High-level Political Forum
(HLPF) – the main UN platform monitoring follow-up on States’ actions on
the SDGs – currently under way in New York, breaks down statistics by
region, and shows that hunger has risen almost 20 per cent in Africa’s
subregions, areas which also have the greatest prevalence of
undernourishment.

 Although
the pervasiveness of hunger in Latin America and the Caribbean is still
below seven per cent, it is slowly increasing. And in Asia,
undernourishment affects 11 per cent of
the population.

 Although
southern Asia saw great progress over the last five years, at almost 15
per cent, it is still the subregion with the highest prevalence of
undernourishment.

“Our
actions to tackle these troubling trends will have to be bolder, not
only in scale but also in terms of multisectoral collaboration,” the
heads of the UN Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), the
International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD), the UN
Children’s Fund (UNICEF), the World Food Programme (WFP) and the World
Health Organization (WHO) urged in their joint foreword to the report.

Hunger
is increasing in many countries where economic growth is lagging,
particularly in middle-income countries and those that rely heavily on
international primary commodity trade.

The
annual UN report also found that income inequality is rising in many of
the countries where hunger is on the rise, making it even more
difficult forthe poor, vulnerable or marginalized to cope with economic
slowdowns and downturns.

“We
must foster pro-poor and inclusive structural transformation focusing
on people and placing communities at the centre to reduce economic
vulnerabilities and set ourselves on track to ending hunger, food
insecurity and all forms of malnutrition,” the UN leaders said.

Food insecurity

This year’s edition of the report takes a broader look at the impact of food insecurity – beyond hunger.

It
introduces, for the first time, a second indicator for monitoring
Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) Target 2.1 on the Prevalence of
Moderate or Severe Food Insecurity that shows that 17.2 per cent of the
world’s population, or 1.3 billion people, lacked regular access to
“nutritious and sufficient food”.

“Even
if they were not necessarily suffering from hunger, they are at greater
risk of various forms of malnutrition and poor health”, according to
the report.The combination of moderate and severe levels of food
insecurity brings the estimate to about two billion people, where in
every continent, women are slightly more food insecure than men.

Low birthweight still a major challenge

Turning to children, the report disclosed that since 2012, no progress has been made in reducing low birthweight.

Additionally,
while the number of under-age-five children affected by stunting has
decreased over the past six years by 10 per cent globally, the pace of
progress is too slow to meet the 2030 target of halving the number of
stunted children.

Furthermore,
overweight and obesity continue to increase throughout all regions,
particularly among school-age children and adults. Income inequality
increases the likelihood of severe food insecurity – UN report

To
safeguard food security and nutrition, the 2019 report stresses the
importance to economic and social policies to counteract the effects of
adverse economic cycles when they arrive, while avoiding cuts in
essential services.

It
maintains that the uneven pace of economic recovery “is undermining
efforts to end hunger and malnutrition, with hunger increasing in many
countries where the economy
has slowed down or contracted”, mostly in middle-income nations.

Moreover,
economic slowdowns or downturns disproportionally undermine food
security and nutrition where inequalities are greater.


The
report concludes with guidance on what short- and long-term policies
must be undertaken to safeguard food security and nutrition during
episodes of economic turmoil or in preparation for them, such as
integrating food security and nutrition concerns into poverty reduction
efforts using pro-poor and inclusive structural transformations.

Solving India’s hunger problem

The
Supreme Court has agreed to examine a plea that starvation deaths
continue to eat into the right to life and dignity of social fabric and a
“radical” new measure like community kitchens need to be set up across
the country to feed the poor and the hungry.

A Bench led by
Justice N.V. Ramana issued notice on Monday to the government on the
petition filed jointly by activists Anun Dhawan, Ishann Dhawan and
Kunjana Singh, represented by advocates Ashima Mandla and Fuzail Ahmad
Ayyubi.

State-funded community Asskhaya Patra kitchens must be
the  novel concept in all countries. For combating starvation and
malnutrition crisis every locality must have Akshaya Patra kitchens
along with the existing hotels and bakeries.

Book XV. Happiness, Sukha Vagga

XV. 5. The Buddha feeds the Hungry 01

203. Hunger is the greatest of afflictions; the Aggregates of Being are the principal source of suffering;
If a man thoroughly understand this, he has attained Nibbāna, Supreme Happiness.

This religious instruction was given by the Teacher while he was in residence at Āḷavi with reference to a certain lay disciple.

For one day, as the Teacher seated in the Perfumed Chamber at Jetavana {3.262}
surveyed the world at dawn, he beheld a certain poor man at Āḷavi.
Perceiving that he possessed the faculties requisite for attaining the
Fruit of Conversion, he surrounded himself with a company of five
hundred monks and went to Āḷavi. The inhabitants of Āḷavi straightway
invited the Teacher to be their guest. That poor man also heard that the
Teacher had arrived and made up his mind to go and hear the Teacher
preach the Law. But that very [30.75] day an ox of his
strayed off. So he considered within himself, “Shall I seek that ox, or
shall I go and hear the Law?” And he came to the following conclusion,
“I will first seek that ox and then go and hear the Law.” Accordingly,
early in the morning, he set out to seek his ox.

The
residents of Āḷavi provided seats for the Congregation of Monks
presided over by the Buddha, served them with food, and after the meal
took the Teacher’s bowl, that he might pronounce the words of
thanksgiving. Said the Teacher, “He for whose sake I came hither a
journey of thirty leagues has gone into the forest to seek his ox which
was lost. Not until he returns, will I preach the Law.” And he held his
peace.

While
it was still day, that poor man found his ox and straightway drove the
ox back to the herd. Then he thought to himself, “Even if I can do
nothing else, I will at least pay my respects to the Teacher.”
Accordingly, although he was oppressed with the pangs of hunger, he
decided not to go home, but went quickly to the Teacher, and having paid
obeisance to the Teacher, sat down respectfully on one side. When the
poor man came and stood before the Teacher, the Teacher said to the
steward of the alms, “Is there any food remaining over and above to the
Congregation of Monks?” “Reverend Sir, the food has not been touched.”
“Well then, serve this poor man with food.” So when the steward had
provided that poor man with a seat in a place indicated by the Teacher,
he served him dutifully with rice-porridge and other food, both hard and
soft. When the poor man had eaten his meal, he rinsed his mouth.

(We are told that with this single exception there is no other instance on record in the Three Piṭakas {3.263}
of the Tathāgata’s having thus inquired about the supply of food.) As
soon as the poor man’s physical sufferings had been relieved, his mind
became tranquil. Then the Teacher preached the Law in orderly sequence,
expounding one after another the Four Noble Truths. At the conclusion of
the lesson, the poor man was established in the Fruit of Conversion.
Then the Teacher pronounced the words of thanksgiving, and having so
done, arose from his seat and departed. The multitude accompanied him a
little way and then turned back.

The
monks who accompanied the Teacher were highly indignant and said, “Just
consider, brethren, what the Teacher did. Nothing of the sort ever
happened before. But to-day, seeing a certain poor man, the Teacher
inquired about the supply of food and directed that food to be given to
another.” The Teacher turned around, stopped, [30.76] and
said, “Monks, what are you saying?” When he heard what they were saying,
he said to them, “It is even so, monks. When I came hither a journey of
thirty leagues, a long and difficult journey, my sole reason for coming
hither was the fact that I saw that this lay disciple possessed the
faculties requisite for the attainment of the Fruit of Conversion. Early
in the morning, oppressed with the pangs of hunger, this man went to
the forest and spent the day in the forest seeking his ox which was
lost. Therefore I thought to myself, ‘If I preach the Law to this man
while he is suffering from the pangs of hunger, he will not be able to
comprehend it.’ Therefore was it that I did what I did. Monks, there is
no affliction like the affliction of hunger.” So saying, he pronounced
the following Stanza,

203. Hunger is the greatest of afflictions; the Aggregates of Being are the principal source of suffering;
If a man thoroughly understand this, he has attained Nibbāna, Supreme Happiness.

Fear

What do Matteyya Awakened One with Awareness
quotes teach us about fear?

Trade your fear for freedom.

“Even death is not to be feared by one who has lived wisely.”

“The whole secret of existence is to have no fear.

Never fear what will become of you, depend on no one. Only the moment you reject all help are you freed.”

“When
one has the feeling of dislike for evil, when one feels tranquil, one
finds pleasure in listening to good teachings; when one has these
feelings and appreciates them, one is free of fear.



”Pain is a Gift
Instead of avoiding it,
Learn to embrace it.
Without pain,
there is no growth”

Keep
calm and carry on.” “The only thing we have to fear is fear itself.”
“Don’t worry, be happy and reach across barriers of class and era”.

okay. So it’s okay.””I like to think of life as an adventure, like a
roller coaster. It helps with the ups and downs.”

rest of it.”

The sun will rise “This too shall pass,”

“Praise and blame, gain and loss, pleasure and sorrow come and go like the wind.”

“dawn comes after the darkness,”

“I
know what I have to do now, I’ve got to keep breathing because tomorrow
the sun will rise. Who knows what the tide could bring?”

“Everything will be okay in the end. If it’s not okay, it’s not the end.”
Do
not Panic & don’t kill yourself with unecessary fear. This posting
is to balance your news feed from posts that caused fear and panic.

 33,38,724
People are sick with COVID-19 Coronavirus at the moment, of which
32,00,000 are abroad. This means that if you are not in or haven’t
recently visited any foreign country, this should eliminate 95% of your
concern.

If you do contact COVID-19 Coronavirus, this still is not a cause for panic because:

81% of the Cases are MILD

14% of the Cases are MODERATE

Only 5% of the Cases are CRITICAL

Which means that even if you do get the virus, you are most likely to recover from it.

Some
have said, “but this is worse than SARS and SWINEFLU!”  SARS had a
fatality rate of 10%, Swine flu 28% while COVID-19 has a fatality rate
of 2%

Moreover, looking at the ages of those who are dying of this
virus, the death rate for the people UNDER 55 years of age is only 0.4%

This
means that: if you are under 55 years of age and don’t live out of
India - you are more likely to win the lottery (which has a 1 in
45,000,000 chance)


  • Let’s take one day ie 1 May as an example when Covid 19 took lives of 6406 in the world.
    On the same day:

    26,283 people died of Cancer

    24,641 people died of Heart Disease

    4,300 people died of Diabetes

    Suicide took 28 times more lives than the virus did.

    Mosquitoes
    kill 2,740 people every day, HUMANS kill 1,300 fellow humans every day,
    and Snakes kill 137 people every day. (Sharks kill 2 people a year)

    SO DO THE DAILY THINGS TO SUPPORT YOUR IMMUNE SYSTEM , PROPER HYGIENE AND DO NOT LIVE  IN FEAR.
