Tsunami hit Japan Friday, March 11, 2011
A Buddhist Response to the Japan Tsunami written by Lodro Rinzler…Writer; Shambhala Buddhist practitioner and teacher; Development Officer, Shambhala International
The important thing to remember is to continue to keep an open heart and not shut down and ignore the suffering
of our fellow human beings in Japan. If we can offer our practice, service, or generosity to the victims of the tsunami then we no longer need to feel disempowered. I invite others to share their own reflections on how we can help our friends overseas.
No matter what YOUR form of bringing love and joy to your heart and the hearts of everyone around you, these words Rinzler wrote are important. Send love and compassion mentally and heartfelt to Japan and all those fearful of what is happening in the world.
In 1923, Japan had a 7.9-magnit ude temblor that killed 143,000 people, according to the USGS. A 6.9-magnit ude quake in Kobe city in 1995 killed 6,400 people.
1960 Tsunami put the boat “Good Luck” onto house.
Keep it all in perspective.
Keep fear out and love in. When bad things happen, let love fill the air.
You may be wondering if my feet are on the ground or if I am floating in an unrealistic mental state. ..Yes my feet are are the ground, I understand every moment is a gift.
How do I want to spend this moment, and then the next moment?
Bringing love and compassion to others, that is how.
