Buddha Magic - RARE FOOTAGE of Secret Ritual of Dying and Rebirth by THAI MONK
http://beautifulthailand99.blogspot.co.uk/2014/03/life-death-and-rebirth-in-thai-buddhist.html I was privileged to witness my wife and her family attending an almost secret Buddhist ritual at a Thai temple outside Bang Len, Nakorn Pathum about 80 km north of Bangkok. The Abott performs this only rarely and signifies a ritualised death by being covered wit ha white shroud which after appropriate chanting is pulled off to reveal a reborn individual who comes back to the world re-invigorated and refreshed. There is a very good blog account of a similar ritual elsewhere. http://wheelingcircles.wordpress.com/religious-experiences-2/a-contemporary-buddhist-ritual/ You can download this music for free for non-commercial purposes; just provide a credit: music by longzijun.. This original soft instrumental song is entitled As long as a word remains unspoken. The title comes from the quote: "As long as a word remains unspoken, you are its master; once you utter it, you are its slave." (Solomon Ibn Gabirol ben Judah, an 11th Century poet and philosopher). http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Eh3AuwiG9L0 Shot with a Canon Powershot SX220

Special Buddhist Ritual: The OKO Ceremony
“Oko” generally means a ritual assembly to recite sutras, to offer prayers, and to preach the teachings of Buddhism in order to praise a particular Buddha or object of worship. In Nichiren Shoshu Buddhism, we conduct the Oko Ceremony to repay our debt of gratitude for the profound benefit of the three treasures: Nichiren Daishonin (the Buddha), the Dai-Gohonzon (the Law), and Nikko Shonin (the priesthood). The Oko Ceremony is conducted at the Head Temple Taisekiji three times during the month: on the seventh to commemorate the memorial anniversary of the Second High Priest, Nikko Shonin, who established the Head Temple; on the 13th, which is the memorial day of the True Buddha, Nichiren Daishonin; and on the 15th to mark the memorial of the Third High Priest, Nichimoku Shonin. The Oko Ceremony held at local Nichiren Shoshu Temples has the same significance as the three ceremonies held at the Head Temple. The ceremony begins with an offering of traditional foods to the three treasures (Kenzen) and is then followed by the recitation of the Hoben and Juryo chapters of the Lotus Sutra. After chanting (Daimoku) and offering the silent prayers, the chief priest gives a lecture on true Buddhism. Priests and lay believers enhance their faith, practice, and study through this ceremony and renew their determination to accomplish worldwide propagation of true Buddhism in order to repay their debt of gratitude. Excerpted: Nichiren Shoshu Ceremonies, p.52.
Buddhist School Education
Buddhist School Education is movement that started long time ago in temple schools across South and East Asia and has just recently evolved into a more formal modern organized institutions. Since we don't know so much about it, we received help from Neil Amas, the principle of Panyaden, a Buddhist Schools in Chiang Mai, Thailand. To support our channel, visit www.patreon.com/sprouts For more info about Panyaden, visit www.panyaden.ac.th/ Full Script: Buddha was born as a son of a wealthy king some 2,500 ago in Himalayan Mountains of Nepal. After 29 years of living in luxury, he left the palace for the first time. Outside he saw ordinary people and immense suffering. He decided to begin a simple life, spending most of the time among holy men or meditating. His goal, to solve the mystery of suffering. Over the years Buddha came to the realization that we suffer because we desire things to be more than what they are. He spoke of 4 Noble Truths: 1. There is suffering 2. Suffering is caused by our desires 3. We can manage our desires by changing our perspective instead of trying to change our circumstances. 4. We can free ourselves from suffering by following The Noble Eightfold Path, also know as The Middle Way. The Middle Way teaches us to consume in moderation, cultivate self-discipline and strengthen our mind through meditation and mindfulness. So we become aware of our thoughts and actions and realize that nothing is permanent. We then can understand that everyone is exposed to suffering and as a result become more compassionate. With enough practice we can let go of all negative desires and free ourselves from suffering altogether. We reach full liberation of the mind. Buddhist schools in Thailand, India and around the world bring introspection into the lessons and activities of their national curriculum. Since Buddha believed that wisdom is rather a habit, and not an intellectual state of mind, learning by doing is key. But students also practice concentration and learn life skills like farming and skillful communication. To build intrinsic motivation, children get individual feedback instead of reward and punishment. Students learn to understand and manage their emotions. An angry girl identifies the causes, warning signs and transient nature of her feelings. She might realize that we are not being punished for our anger, but by our anger. A boy that aced a math test reflects on his success. He understands that hard work pays off, but also realizes that he should not be too proud, because it separates us from others and creates loneliness. He learns to be modest. Daily rituals help the students to practice mindfulness. In the morning, students meditate in front of a shrine , chant Buddhist virtues and send out feelings of goodwill to all living beings. Sometimes students visit the community to experience the pleasure of giving and to see that some are suffering . They understand that nothing is permanent, not even life itself. The goal of a Buddhist Education is to spark our curiosity for lifelong learning through reflection. So that once we grow up, we understand the consequences of skillful speech, we learn to enjoy the simple things in life and we find inspiration and wisdom in our own thoughts. Just as Buddha said “conquer anger with non-anger. Conquer badness with goodness. Conquer meanness with generosity. Conquer dishonesty with truth.”

Here, Living With Dead Bodies for Weeks—Or Years—Is Tradition | National Geographic
On the Indonesian island of Sulawesi, the Torajan people believe that a person is not truly dead until water buffalo have been sacrificed at their funeral, serving as the vehicle to the afterlife. Until that time, the bodies are may be kept at the family's home for weeks, months or years and are fed and cared for as if they were alive. Some Torajans continue their relationship with the dead through a ma'nene' ceremony, a type of "second funeral" in which families bring out their ancestors every few years and change their clothes and clean their bodies and crypts. ➡ Subscribe: http://bit.ly/NatGeoSubscribe #NationalGeographic #Death #Indonesia About National Geographic: National Geographic is the world's premium destination for science, exploration, and adventure.

Sand mandala: Tibetan Buddhist ritual
Mandalas are of profound symbolic value in Tantric Buddhism and are regarded by some as sacred. They can take a variety of forms: from simple diagrams and elaborate paintings on cloth, to complicated patterns of coloured sand and large three dimensional carved structures. Sand Mandalas represent the universe and act as an architectural blueprint of the enlightened mind. They can also function as a contemplative aid in visualisation meditation. Mandalas often refer to secret Tantric doctrine and highlight the ideals of the Buddhist path which includes putting an end to suffering, attaining enlightenment and understanding reality through the Wisdom of Emptiness. At the heart of this medicine mandala is a lotus throne and on it is a sacred medical text. Seated within the petals of a lotus flower are the Eight Medicine Buddhas, who came into the world to save sentient beings from the five degenerations: shortened life-span, delusions, degenerate persons, time and wrong views. In the outer sections the disciples of the Medicine Buddhas are represented by symbols. A rare opportunity to observe the creation and offering of a "Mela" or Medicine Mandala, made from tiny grains of vibrantly coloured sand, with Tibetan Buddhist monks from the Tashi Lhunpo monastery in India. Sand Mandalas are unique to Tibetan Buddhism, representing an architectural blueprint of the enlightened mind, functioning - among other things - as a contemplative aid in visualisation meditation.

4. Amitabha Practice & Jang Chog Ritual
“On Sunday we have Amitabha practice and Jang Chog ritual. Throughout this year many people have passed away. Furthermore, we are also all going to die. Amitabha practice is an easy way to liberate ourselves and others. Amitabha’s pureland is less difficult to reach than other purelands. In addition Garchen Rinpoche will do many dedications and make aspirations for those that have passed away. “The Jang Chog Rituals will be a part of the practice and this has two aspects; one is to connect those who have died with the blessings of Amitabha creating the causes for a positive rebirth. The second aspect is removing obstacles at the time of our death, even if at that time no one practices on our behalf. Garche Rinpoche is a realized master and has completely accomplished the practices of Achi Chokyi Drolma and Amitabha Buddha. Therefore, doing these practices with Rinpoche brings boundless benefits to all beings, both the living and those who have passed away.”

10 Bizarre Funeral Rituals in the World | Top 10 Weird List
10 Bizarre Funeral Rituals in the World Around the world, different cultures have unique ways of mourning and demonstrating affection to the deceased. Number 10: Indonesia, The Ceremony of Cleaning Corpses. The Toraja tribe who inhabits the mountainous region of South Sulawesi has a tradition called Ma'Nene or the Ceremony of Cleaning Corpses where the bodies of the deceased are dug up to be washed, groomed, and given a make-over. Damaged caskets are also repaired or replaced. The corpses are then dragged from where they have died and then back to the village, always following a path of straight lines, and then they are placed back into a coffin. Number 9: Ghana, Fantasy Coffins. Among the Ga people of Ghana, death is not the end and that life continues in the next world in the same way at it did on earth. They also believe that deceased ancestors are powerful than the living and are able to influence the relatives who are still alive. To gain merits from their deceased loved ones, the families will do everything they can to provide the best coffin consistent with the deceased person's profession or status. If the deceased is a pilot, his coffin will be a custom made airplane. Number 8: Tibet, Sky Burial. In Tibet, as well as in Mongolia, Bhutan, Nepal, and certain parts of India, there is a burial practice called excarnation where the deceased is placed on a mountaintop to decompose or to be eaten by scavenging animals, especially carrion birds. When the organs and the flesh of the deceased has been discarded, the bones and skeletons are smashed into pieces and mixed with barley flour to feed the vultures. Number 7: Papua, Indonesia, Finger Cutting. The Dani people of Papua, Indonesia, mourn the passing of their loved ones by coating their faces with mud and ash, and by amputating a segment of the finger to symbolize the loss of relatives. The amputation ritual, mostly carried out by the women, is also believed to appease the spirit of the departed. Number 6: China, Professional Mourners. One of the ways that Chinese people honor the dead is to hire professional mourners to help wail for the family in their sorrow. For around $600 the family can hire seven women who will chant, cry, shout, and collapse on the floor. Number 5: Japan, Self-Mummification. They are referred to as “Buddhas in the flesh.” They are practitioners of Shingon Buddhism who have successfully carried the gruesome and excruciating practice of self-mummification as a sign of transcendence and spiritual transformation. Self-mummification is a process that can be completed between the span of 3,000 days to 10 years. The first step involves a strict diet that eliminate all body fat, and the consumption of certain herbs and toxic cycad nuts known to inhibit bacterial growth. The second step requires the monk to step into a tiny burial chamber provided with a small opening to allow air inside. Everyday the monk rings a bell to signify that he is still alive. Once the bell stops, the chamber will be sealed. After three years, it will be reopened again to see if the attempt at self-mummification was successfully carried out. Number 4: India, Sati. Sati is the practice among some Hindu communities by which a recently widowed woman either voluntarily or by use of force or coercion commits suicide as a result of her husband's death. The best known form of sati is when a woman burns to death on her husband's funeral pyre. Other forms of sati exist, including being buried alive with the husband's corpse and drowning. Number 3: India, Santhara or Fasting to death. In Jainism, Santhara is part of an ethical code of conduct where a Jain ascetic is allowed to gradually reduce food and liquid intake when normal life is no longer possible due to old age, incurable disease, or when a person is nearing his end. Number 2: Philippines, Ifugao's Skinning of the Dead. When a member of an Ifugao tribe dies, male relatives will build a chair used to prop up the deceased. Then the body is washed, blindfolded, set up near the front door to the house for a period of up to eight days. On the fourth day of the mourning period, the body is remove from the chair, and the skin is peeled off. The skin is then buried underneath the house of the deceased. Ifugao members believe that this practice helps with fertility. Number 1: Taiwan, Funeral Strippers. In Taiwan, the practice of hiring young women to sing, dance, and remove clothes at a funeral is one way of celebrating the life of the deceased and also to attract mourners. Another purpose of the strippers is to "appease wandering spirits" as well as give the deceased "one last hurrah". What happens in a performance can vary considerably, and may include climbing poles, sound systems, professional musicians, electric "flower carts", neon-lit stages, fireworks and gas-driven fire flames.

Healing Trauma / Sleep Meditation / Mindful Movement
Meditation, sleep meditation, mindfulness exercises, and positive affirmations can be useful tools for healing from past trauma. When we experience stress in our lives, whether it is chronic low levels of stress, or intense traumatic events, a cascade of events are triggered in our mind and body that can lead to disease. As we gain awareness of this process, we are able to practice realigning the communication between our mind and body to experience greater well-being. What you are thinking about right before you fall asleep will set the tone for the quality of your sleep and your mindset for the next day. You have the choice to change the way you look at things. These thoughts before bed send a message to your subconscious to help you heal. Trauma can be very serious. Please seek support from professional help if you are struggling.

My Daily Buddhist Practice: Ringing the Bell
Ringing the bell three times signifies appreciation for the Three Treasures. The bell is considered butsugu or a Buddhist accessory used to make offerings to the Gohonzon (object of worship). When we ring the bell, we should do so with sincerity and serenity as we make an offering of sound to the Gohonzon. The bell is used during our morning and evening prayers called Gongyo. When we place offerings on the altar (food, rice, water), we ring the bell three times and observe this silent prayer: “I offer deepest gratitude to the Three Treasures of the Buddhism of Sowing. Nam Myoho Renge Kyo.” Ringing the bell three times signifies appreciation for the Three Treasures – The Buddha – Nichiren Daishonin; The Law – Nam Myoho Renge Kyo; and the Priesthood – Nikko Shonin and successive High Priests. You can read more about how to use the bell in the book, Nichiren Shoshu Basics of Practice.

Buddhism & Culture in Bhutan
Buddhism & Culture in Bhutan Travel & Trips Videos 4K 🔔 https://www.youtube.com/TravelVideoss Buddhism is the most widely practiced religion in Bhutan. Vajrayana Buddhism is the state religion of Bhutan, and Buddhists comprise two-thirds to three-quarters and Hinduism one-quarter of its population. Although the Buddhism practiced in Bhutan originated in Tibetan Buddhism, it differs significantly in its rituals, liturgy, and monastic organization. The state religion has long been supported financially by the government through annual subsidies to Buddhist monastery, shrines, monks, and nuns. In the modern era, support of the state religion during the reign of Jigme Dorji Wangchuck includes the manufacture of 10,000 gilded bronze images of the Buddha, publication of elegant calligraphied editions of the 108-volume Kangyur (Collection of the Words of the Buddha) and the 225-volume Tengyur (Collection of Commentaries), and the construction of numerous chorten (stupas) throughout the country. Guaranteed representation in the National Assembly and the Royal Advisory Council, Buddhists constitute the majority of society and are assured an influential voice in public policy.

Japanology Plus 2017 04 04 Buddhist Altars
If you’ve ever been in a Japanese home – or seen a TV show, film or even anime set in a Japanese home – you’ve likely set eyes on a Buddhist altar, a butsudan. These miniature altars allow Japanese families to pray in the comfort of their own home, and are specifically geared toward the veneration of deceased loved ones and ancestors. A kind of communication hub between the worlds of the living and the dead, butsudan are used whenever a family member wants to pay respects to, consult, or share news with a deceased ancestor. When grown-up children living away from home return for a visit, perhaps during one of Japan's main holiday breaks, one of the first things they'll do is kneel down in front of the butsudan, often striking a bell to begin prayer. These holiday visits also often include o-haka mairi, a visit to the family grave, showing just how important ancestor veneration is in Japan. As Peter Barakan points out in the program, the use of butsudan appears to be a uniquely Japanese phenomenon, and there are several historical reasons why butsudan have become such a staple in Japanese households. Though ancestor veneration existed in Japan before Buddhism arrived on its shores, the use of physical household altars appears to have started as a result of a decree by Emperor Tenmu around 686 (one of the earliest forerunners of the modern butsudan, Tamamushi-no-zushi, can be viewed at Horyuji, a temple in Nara). Edo period politics also played a large role in the promulgation of butsudan. The authorities in those days required Japanese citizens to register with a local Buddhist temple, partly to prove they weren’t secretly practicing Christianity (which, as the recent Martin Scorsese film Silence demonstrates, was not looked upon kindly). The easiest way to prove your affiliation with Buddhism? Show off the butsudan in your home. It has also been suggested that wandering Buddhist priests called hijiri were another factor in the adoption of butsudan. These nomadic shamen carried portable altars on their backs, showing the people of the villages they visited it was possible to worship using a relatively compact and personal device. The butsudan is not always the only object of veneration in the home: it’s often paired with a kamidana, an altar for worship of Shinto spirits, or kami. The pairing of butsudan and kamidana in the household reflects a key feature of Japanese religious attitudes: Shinto and Buddhism are comfortably intertwined. As you might imagine, with modernization and ever-evolving values, Japan’s relationship with the butsudan has also changed. According to a 2013 survey, slightly over 50% of single-family homes contain a butsudan, and that percentage tumbles to just 21.1% when it comes to those living in apartments or condominiums. Breaking things down by age is also revealing: 71.5% of those between 70 and 84 years old possess a butsudan, compared to just 29.9% of those between 20 and 39. Butsudan makers like the one Matt Alt visits in the program are grappling with these changes in several ways, including compact, modern designs adapted to 21st century city lifestyles. There’s also been a push away from altars corresponding to a certain denomination of Buddhism and toward models that allow for a more individualistic, user-friendly style of veneration. If these and other innovations win favor with younger Japanese in the years ahead, then this ancient tradition should be secure for decades to come.

Secular Buddhism: A Bastille Day Discussion (Part 1of2)
For decades a growing number of lay individuals and groups have been practising, studying and teaching the dharma outside Buddhist institutions, and without rituals and received beliefs. More recently some of those involved have claimed -- or had affixed to them -- the 'Secular Buddhism' label. And they have thereby attracted considerable criticism from those claiming to represent and defend 'true' Buddhism. So what is secular Buddhism all about? It's not a school, still less an orthodoxy, but can we discern some major themes that might make the label meaningful and allow for informed evaluation? So far the debate has generated a great deal of heat (and bad manners), but very little light. During the evening we intend to remedy that by exploring this emerging secular tendency and its relation to older forms of Buddhism in a spirit of mutually respectful inquiry, so that we might learn from each other.

Culture & Vocabulary: Major religions of the world
Learn about the major religions of the world. I will teach you about the beliefs and practices of Christianity, Islam, Hinduism, and Buddhism. These are the four religions in the world with the most followers. We will talk about the history, prophets, rituals, gods, differences, and similarities between all of these religions. You will not only learn about major world cultures, but we will also look at plenty of English vocabulary related to religions. Bonus: I will share with you my own religious beliefs. This lesson is meant for educational purposes, not debate. So watch with an open mind, and then do the quiz at https://www.engvid.com/culture-vocabulary-major-religions/ to see how much of the material you understood and remember. TRANSCRIPT Hi, guys. I got a secret to tell ya. Do you have a religion? Yeah? Most people do. I don't. I am what is called "agnostic". "Agnostic" means I do not believe in a god. Do you want to turn the video off because you're offended by my religious views? Go ahead, but you're going to miss a great lesson on religion. My whole point of this educational video, if you will, is to preach tolerance. Because guess what? You have a religion, I have a religion-no I don't-and other people will have a different religion than you, especially when you're travelling. So, let's say that you leave your beautiful house and your beautiful country, and you come to another country. Guess what? There are going to be people that don't have the same religion as you, and you get to respect them, and hopefully they get to respect you. Unfortunately, the world has kind of turned against us. Thank you, media, for making all religions a point of war; which it shouldn't be, because most religions should teach love. Oh. Where did that go wrong? So, what I want you guys to understand is that I don't have a religion, I don't want to have a religion, and it's my choice; as is it's your choice to have your religion. But respect goes a far way. So, let's dive right into religion. What is it? The cool thing is when I was researching this is the dictionary didn't really have a distinct definition of "religion", but it said this - it said: "Religion is a cultural system of designated behaviours"-so how you act in your culture-"practices"-so things that you do; no matter what your religion is-"and world views". So, this means how religion sees other issues in the world. You with me so far? So, religion has nothing so far to do with anything that is violent or bad; it has to do with someone's opinion of a culture. We have two words to start off. The first one is "atheism". "Atheism" means that you do not believe in a god; nothing. There's no god that exists. It's kind of close to "agnosticism", which I told you that I was. "Agnosticism" means that you have no proof that god exists, or any gods exist. So I teeter-totter between being atheist and being agnostic, but I don't have a religion. I think religions are amazing, but "atheism" is a belief that god doesn't exist, and "agnosticism" is a belief that: "I don't know yet, so don't ask me my question. I haven't decided." What I've done is I've written down the four top-and by no means best-religions of the world. In our crazy world we have 10,000 different distinct religions. 10,000. But over 85% of the population are in the top four religions. Now, statistics: I don't believe them, so when I tell you percentages and stuff, it's clearly all from the internet and I don't believe half of it; but let's see if you do. Apparently the biggest population in the world, 2.4 billion or 33% of the population are apparently "Christian". Okay? Apparently this involves people who are atheist and agnostic. So that's statistic is blown out of the water right away, but Christianity is supposed to be the religion with the most followers. So, first word to learn is: "monotheistic". "Mono" means one, and "theistic" means God. So, Christianity is a religion with one god, and his/her... His/her... God's name is God. Is God a him or a her? What do you think? Yeah, you don't know, do you? Okay. So, this... Christianity is based on the teachings of Jesus of Nazareth. Okay? We like to shorten his name and just call him "Jesus". And Christians believe that Jesus was the son of God. He was born to a virgin... What? In a manger. That doesn't make sense, scientifically; don't tell my mom that. The holy book that Christians use is called a "Bible" or "Gospel", so this is where all of the teachings of Jesus Christ are written. People who practice Christianity are called "Christians". And the important thing that you guys have to realize is that if you are Catholic, you are Christian; if you are Protestant, you are Christian; if you are Eastern Orthodox-these are the top three-you are also Christian. So you have to be careful. You can't say to someone: "Oh, well I'm Catholic, but I'm not Christian." […]
