#9 Outsider to Mystic Law - Paul Eyres
Manage episode 349559135 series 2843937
Hello, and welcome back to Practical Transcendence, a podcast in which we have grounded discussions on the tangibility of spiritual awakening, where we explore the guiding and common principles, as well as what is unique to each individual.
Today I’m talking to Paul Eyers, a Buddhist in the lineage of Nichiren Daishonin which has been revived in todays world by Soka Gakkai International. He provides an overview of this slightly different take on the teachings of the Buddha and the centrality of a specific chant in manifesting your Buddha Nature. Paul goes into detail regarding two significant awakenings that came after a period of suffering linked to feeling like an outsider, and puts this in the context of his practice.
Paul’s experiences reflect many of our own process on the spiritual path, in that nothing is linear, and when we go deeper within, we inevitably encounter pain points that can be the pathway to realisation.
