About us : “Avatamsaka Vihara”

Avatamsaka Sutra is Mahayana text that depicts interdependence and interpenetration of all dharmas (here dharma means “phenomenon”, both in the sense of them being both temporal and spatial, and material and nonmaterial)โ€• for example, the phenomenon that we linguistically identify as “I” interpenetrates all other phenomena that we linguistically identify as the world or the universeโ€• they arise together and are dependent on one another following the Mahayana idea of pratityasamutpada or dependent co-originationโ€• and where neither of them are fixed or static, and neither being the cause, nor the effort (because, cause and effect are but mental constructions according to the Madhyamakas).

‘Avatamsaka’ literally means flower ornament, เฆฏเง‡เฆฎเฆจ เฆซเงเฆฒเง‡เฆฐ เฆฎเฆพเฆฒเฆพโ€• เฆฏเง‡เฆ–เฆพเฆจเง‡, เฆฏเง‡เฆฎเฆจ เฆฎเฆพเฆฒเฆพเฆฐ เฆฎเฆงเงเฆฏเง‡ เฆชเงเฆฐเฆคเฆฟเฆŸเฆฟ เฆซเงเฆฒเง‡เฆฐ เฆ…เฆธเงเฆคเฆฟเฆคเงเฆฌเฆ•เง‡ เฆ–เงเฆเฆœเง‡ เฆชเฆพเฆ“เงŸเฆพ เฆฏเฆพเงŸ, เฆคเง‡เฆฎเฆจเฆฟ เฆ†เฆฌเฆพเฆฐ เฆชเงเฆฐเฆคเฆฟเฆŸเฆฟ เฆซเงเฆฒเง‡เฆฐ เฆญเง‡เฆคเฆฐเฆ“ เฆฎเฆพเฆฒเฆพเฆฐ เฆ…เฆธเงเฆคเฆฟเฆคเงเฆฌเฆ•เง‡ เฆ†เฆฎเฆฐเฆพ เฆฆเง‡เฆ–เฆคเง‡ เฆชเฆพเฆ‡โ€• and this sutra gives the clue about my/our relationship with my/our environment, and how we interpenetrate and arise together, as explained by the pratityasamutpada/dependent co-origination

And Vihara is not exactly a university in the modern sense of the term, they rather arose as resting places of the wandering monks, especially during the range seasons, where the took shelter, meditated and discussed scripturesโ€• so the idea of vihara is intimately linked with the idea of ‘journey’, which in our case serve as a metaphor to the ‘journey’ of life

The guiding principle of the Open University is Pratฤซtyasamutpฤda

Pratฤซtyasamutpฤda leads us to understand that all phenomena are interconnected, and which is the key to ecological consciousness

In Zen tradition the spiritual practice of drawing ensล (meaning circle) and calligraphy for self-realization is called hitsuzendลโ€• the ensล is empty yet fullโ€• and it symbolises the universe which is at the same time full, yet empty (of essence or swabhaba)โ€• and it also symbolises absolute enlightenment

Hitsuzendล (way of Zen through brush) is a form of meditation which is related to Wabi-Sabi aesthetics, which is characterized by its transience and imperfectionโ€• it manifests itself by its asymmetry, roughness, simplicity, economy, austerity, modesty, intimacy, etc., thereby appreciating the beauty that is imperfect, impermanent, and incomplete in natureโ€• a concept derived from the Buddhist teaching of the three marks of existence (trilakแนฃaแน‡a)โ€• impermanence (aniccฤ), non-self (anattฤ) and suffering (duแธฅkha)
