In your opinion, what is naturalness?

 

 

Literally, jinen [naturalness] means “nature.” In Buddhist terms, it refers to “things as they really are,” the state of being that arises out of the Pure Land –ultimate freedom of spontaneity. In this state, one has transcended the bondage of cause and effect and is free from ego and worldly attachments.

 

As I become more aware of the embrace of infinite compassion, I am increasingly freed to be truly who I am here and now with no consideration of my effort or calculation.

 

--Robert Orsi

 

 

There is an order of things that supports and works through us.

 

--Linda Clark

 

 

I have experienced jinen, it is naturalness which comes after much self delusion. I have been transformed into freedom. The path of Buddha came knocking on my door once and I took it. Through great travels, I have returned home to practice, be grateful and show compassion.

 

--Yvette Law
