A Park of Peaceful Means, Daily Meditation: “Power of the wind, at 10 am — 400 feet of Boardwalk still covered in snow and ice, arriving home 10 PM a bare walkway, amazing”
Vancouver Island Retreat Garden Diary ~ Week One Hundred Fifty: Now into March, yet the winter snow clings thickly to the ground. Heavy and dense, we await the rains that will clear our peace park. Service in the city at Brenda’s a blessing with a full house because everyone could get there. The board walk very difficult, but over the next few days I should be able to get it cleared away. Lots of pictures, I will post some later. But never have I seen winter not turn into Spring, and in fact our cold blast is so minor in comparison to so much of the rest of North America.
Nichiren Peace Center: A walk in the forest, beside the Cowichan River for a thousand years. A place to contemplate life as it is. The sounds of nature, the release of anxiety, busyness, the calming of body, mind and soul. All are welcome here to this community of spiritual sustain-ability and peaceful means. A place of retreat with purpose, a place to learn the four foundational pathways to health, happiness and prosperity.
Become Part of the Legacy!A permanent peace center and retreat garden in the Cowichan Valley, here on Vancouver Island. This is your invitation to become part of the Legacy. A program open to people from all cultures, all walks in life, with a vision to share with all who come here, to find health of body, mind and spirit; inner happiness and prosperity.
We are a devoted community of like minded, spiritually engaged Buddhists who have taken a vow to spread the philosophy of wisdom and peaceful means where ever we walk. The vision and goals of this pioneering effort, in this forest of retreat, is to share the benefits of a walk in the park, a place to visit the quietude of discovery of the inner self. A place of personal privacy, a time for service, a time with a Teacher/Messenger and time for self. The active goal is the achievement of spiritual sustain-ability and peaceful means. Understanding that wisdom and enlightenment take personal development, we are happy to share the pathway to enlightenment: “carry water, harvest vegetables, chop wood.” And having achieved wisdom then happily to “carry water, plant vegetables, chop wood,” awakening enlightenment within the circle of life. Opening the door to awakening, insight and mindfulness, all are welcome here!
The Long Term Goal, profound, a Park of natural beauty, a place of peacefulness with the opportunity to assist those who suffer from the stress of life. A land for those who have need of getting away from the busyness that causes Health issues; a land of gracefulness, with a teacher and like minded community of compassion who offer an opportunity of awakening to the important issues of this life, making the change in the world by being a peace with oneself, family and friends. A sharing of offerings that encompass Ones past, present and future. This park we call Lotus Land an offering in the here and now.
