The sound of bells Buddhist Bonsho is much more than a message of peace. Actually is the same voice of Shakyamuni Buddha sounds and which reminds us at the same moment in which we listen to it that There is some separation between ourselves and others. Thus the sound of a Bonsho can mean to listener's heart, experimenting and experiencing things and all beings and all phenomena are the I. A self that teaches us that when all the things and beings are self, the awakening exists only because there is the delusion. A truth that on the one hand helps us to recognize that the entire universe is the self but also teaches us humility. Humility because clearly indicates us that we only learn to be responsible to us and others, If we have made the union between the I and the other.
The sound of bells Buddhist Bonsho is the real Dharma you just said.
This is the conclusion that we reached when after having heard a Bonsho truly sound and began to observe any social phenomenon. Maybe when we get to observe life in community, We can clearly see that we observe a social phenomenon, We analyze it and we understand it, but all this does not mean that we have truly understood what this phenomenon is really. Because otherwise we would see on the one hand clearly how valuable that is harmony within a community and on the other hand see that phenomena such as social discrimination, or dictatorships or apartheid are not phenomena that are alien to the ego. And we can even go even one step further and say that the sound of a Bell of peace reminds us in the same instant in which we listen to it touching that while receive the highest truth, apartheid, dictatorships as well as all kinds of abuse of power, will find it even in the most noble or pure feeling of our own interior. We came to this conclusion, taking into account that we are human and that what characterizes us, thinking and awareness, constantly create concepts for interpreting the world around us and because the categorized mean to discriminate. And beyond could even conclude that given that the thinking and language to imply a certain degree of discrimination to create concepts and qualify, discrimination is something with which we must learn to live. A thought which some practitioners unfortunately even derive already only lighting free from discrimination, You can discriminate freely until the lighting us free from our confusion. A conclusion that tells us once again that only the fact of practising any Via spiritual this does not mean that we are free of the delusion. It should be clear that the law of Karma unfailingly exists and also exclaims this with as much clarity as the peace Bell: who encourages discrimination, even though it strives, commits evil and afternoon or early, fall.
The vibrations of peace campaign reach up to the last link of the self.
It is said that when we hear the sound of the Bell of peace clearly we understand the delusion that means affirming that we exist as beings separate from others. An understanding that gives us strength to get up if the time requires it and exclaim: I prefer hell to paradise xenophobic discrimination-based! Because this is what teaches us the sound of a Bonsho also: Paradise could never be a place where separates for any reason, is of gender, racial or social or because we think that someone does not belong to our religion. As the sound of the Bell of peace says every person that honestly practice their tradition: the truth can be taught and the real dialogue there is, just because there are still those who rise up against injustice and lying and know to act according to the truth and only. Many times when one speaks of the interreligious dialogue is discussed about what sets us apart but also speaks of what among us is similar. This show already basics like hell and paradise also illustrating in Buddhism the law of cause and condition. A law that teaches us among other things than ignore it would mean condemning ourselves to ourselves because you never llegariamos to understand the hell on the outside there is because we have a hell in the interior and on the other hand there is paradise when we We resist to do evil and encourage peace.
The sound of a Bonsho transferred all border is inside or outside.
And in this way helps us to understand that the interreligious dialogue also implies responsibility. Responsibility to others and to ourselves as there is no separation between us and the rest. And from Buddhist understanding that this is the only and most important responsibility that has any practitioner of Zen: Learn to listen a truth Bonsho. When we got to hear a truth Bonsho, all differentiation is diluted as automatic and any concept more and we naturally prefer the union. And to put before the union go far beyond separation or discrimination given that in every phenomenon we see the Bonsho, that campaign in all the directions and through all time launches its sound of peace and repeating at every moment.
