The resilience of a monk

Monks go through tough training. That’s what it takes to be able to call yourself a monk. But to think that you can’t do that, that would be a mistake.

The training monks go through is of course tough, but in a way we all have to go through this training some time in our life. Monks are just doing it voluntarily (or because they feel the urge), so that when the time comes that demands resilience, they are better prepared.

So, know that no matter how tough things get, humans have the ability to get through it, it may demand the resilience of a monk, but it is possible.

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.
