Learning and realising. Learning to realise.

Buddha didn’t learn the things he knew. He came to a realisation. When it comes to teaching, we aren’t teaching, we’re providing the environment for students to have a realisation. That is one thing that Master Hoshino got right. Yamabushi are not the teachers, Yamabushi simply set up the environment for our students, our fellow Yamabushi, to have a realisation. Nature is the teacher.

But when it comes to education in school, it is very much the same. What it means to set up the environment for realisation differs between teachers, but that’s what they should be doing (it isn’t always the case that they are).

In the same manner, we can set up ourselves to have a realisation too. All it takes is making the right environment.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Hi, I’m Tim Bunting AKA the Kiwi Yamabushi, a New Zealander who became a Yamabushi Ascetic in the Dewa Sanzan mountains of north Japan. I’m part of the Yamabushido team, and we host life-altering Yamabushi training on the Dewa Sanzan (website link). People come to us for the ultimate mindfulness experience, to reach the next level, or simply connect with nature and themselves.


I’m on a mission to summit all 100 Famous Mountains of Yamagata Prefecture to spread the splendour of this fabulous location, and in dedication to all those who lost their lives out in nature, including my father.


On my daily blog I post thoughts of a practicing Yamabushi that I hope people can use to better themselves and live as fulfilling a life as possible.
