The Uketamo Muscle

The Buddha says life is suffering. Uketamo is a powerful way of dealing with suffering.

Although hard, I have found this to be the case in my own life. I have found that the sooner I am able to accept things for what they are, the sooner I am able to get over them, and that over time, this practice gets easier. Uketamo then becomes like a muscle. With practice and training it builds, and uketamo becomes almost like muscle memory.

Although they may not be what you like to hear, when you get to that stage, things become much clearer much sooner.

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.


Sign up to the weekly Mountains of Wisdom newsletter, follow me on social (Instagram, Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, TikTok, Clubhouse, all @kiwiyamabushi), or send me an email via the link below to stay in touch.


Tim.
