Chanting

This is a Buddhist practice and involves chanting the phrase Nam-Myoho-Renge-Kyo. This mantra or chant is a mixture of Sanskrit, Japanse and Chinese. Literally translated, it means: "I surrender to the law of cause and effect." This chant is the essence of the Lotus Sutra, which captures the teachings of Nichiren Daishonin's Buddhism.   Soka Gakkai International, a 12-million-member-strong Japanese organization, is engaged in spreading kosen-rufu (world peace) by sharing this amazingly simple and effective practice with everyone across the globe.

ideas for next TZM meet

- Nikhil

A week in an RBE

spend longer (eg 1 week) in goa to integrate with holiday, stay together and experiment with the idea of a resouce based economy in practice: each contribute something Eg Nadia brings mint and makes arabic mint tea for everyone etc. Do a shop at the beginning of week to provide a 'fixed set of resources' which we will need to manage/allocate. Notice what we observe about the experience

Live as a sustainable community in practice, not theory, on an island in Gokarna.

Spend a few days contributing to the Auroville community.
