Reacting to other people

An important part of Yamabushi training (and therefore life), is how you react to other people. Or more importantly how you react when other people break the rules, or do something against your rules.

For example, this is frowned upon yet not enforced, but it’s ok to bring in your own food to training. Usually if you did that you would eat it somewhere where nobody else would know, but some people are quite brazen with this.

When it comes to Yamabushi training, you have no real control over what other people do. You can feel jealous, or you can sort of just ignore it and focus on your own training. I know which one I’d prefer.

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.
