The Seventh Dimension

Realm of Bodhisattva

Bodhisattva (菩薩) is a person who has attained enlightenment that he or she knows a mission of life so his mind is filled with contribution to others instead of not thinking too much himself, because he or she has already established personal matters and life so that he can spend his life to other happiness. Bodhisattva is a buddhist term and Saint is equivalent to it. Mother Teresa, who had contributed and spent her life to give love others, is one of very typical ones. Those who have already attained such a sacred enlightenment will become a resident in the seventh dimension after they died.

Element of Altruism

Key element of this realm is an altruism. Arhat is a person who still on the way to be bodhisattva by achieving his or her enlightenment, still arhat is more focusing on developing his enlightenment by own disciplines. Once you obtained arhat level now you are ready to communicate with your true self which is your guardian spirit so you will awake of your true mission of your life from your guardian spirit so that you are going to live to fulfill your mission that is to live for others, society and the world. It is said that everyone can enter this seventh dimension through your efforts of this lifetime.

The Flower Festival – April 8th

April 8th is the day Shakyamuni Buddha was born in Nepal, (actually he was born there, not in India). Thereby this is a day we have a “Flower Festival”. This is a festival celebrating the birth of Buddha, who was born in Nepal about 2600 years ago, and giving our thanks to Buddha for our good health and no misfortune with our sincere gratitude.

His precious teachings have been spread to all over the world and made a great impact also in Japan and his teachings have been handed down to generation to generation until now.

We Japanese disciples of Buddha sincerely appreciate everyone in Nepal who has kept the lamps of the teachings for the past 2600 years.

There is a “Nepal Shakyamuni Buddha hall” is in Japan located in Utusnomiya city. That is the only genuine Nepalese temple in Japan. This is the facility that has been reconstructed from the oldest temple and a cultural heritage “Harati Mata” temple exhibited in the expo “Love and Earth” in the year 2005 then it has been moved to that place.

This year too, the flower festival will be held in that hall. This festival is not only celebrate the birthday of Buddha but also to give our thoughts of support for the major earthquake happened three years ago in Nepal into our prayers.

Celebrating the birthday of Buddha in this festival, also through this opportunity we would also like to deepen our relationships between Nepal and Japan.
