R.I.P. native (Roger Schuyler Lake)

We grieve to inform you all that our blogbrother native, the artist Roger Schuyler Lake, shuffled off this mortal coil early last night, Thursday, December 14, 2017, in his sleep.

Your comments and good wishes, which he heard with great delight, were of great comfort to him, and we thank you for them and for remembering him with such respect and fondness.

There will be a Buddhist memorial service of some sort later this winter, where his ashes will be scattered in the Pecos River, upon whose banks he often trod during his years here with us. Likely to be in February, with a date TBA. Any who wish would be welcome to attend, and visit here with us.

Thank you for your graciousness in letting us know the sad news, Claude.

Folks, the lesson to take is our time on this rock is short, let us grab each other and hold on while we can. My days were made brighter by native's presence here, as is the case with all of you guys and gals. I have grown to love you all.

Peace.

with his intellect and more so with his humanity. We are all better for having his presence with us for this, if only for short time. On a personal note, I felt deeply touched by his insights and am feeling void in my heart for a man I only knew online as "native." I know that I am a better person as a result of learning from his insights.

Thank you, Claude for sharing this sad news that we all had tried to prepare ourselves for, but still we grieve. We are truly grateful to you and Evelette for making native's final days as comfortable as possible. May we all be blessed to have friends as wonderful as you both, and may all good karma come your way.

Rest in eternal Peace, Roger Schuyler Lake, our native.

And hoped that whenever his passing would come, it would be peaceful. Thank you for letting us know it was. I did not have the opportunity of a enjoying a personal relationship with Roger Schuyler Lake, and yet, as a fellow Buddhist, my heart is filled with recognition and gratitude that his lovely soul passed through this life and touched many lives.

I took the liberty of finding some quotes on the Buddhist View of Life and Death by a Buddhist philosopher, Daisaku Ikeda, from a speech Mr. Ikeda delivered at Harvard University back in 1993, titled "Mahayana Buddhism and Twenty-First-Century Civilization". Since Native was also a Buddhist, I thought it appropriate.

Death weighs heavily on the human heart as an inescapable reminder of the finite nature of our existence. However seemingly limitless the wealth or power we might attain, the reality of our eventual demise cannot be avoided. From ancient times, humanity has sought to conquer the fear and apprehension surrounding death by finding ways to partake of the eternal. Through this quest, people have learned to overcome control by instinctual modes of survival and have developed the characteristics that we recognize as uniquely human. In that perspective, we can see why the history of religion coincides with the history of humankind.

Modern civilization has attempted to ignore death. We have diverted our gaze from this most fundamental of concerns as we try to drive death into the shadows. For many people living today, death is the mere absence of life; it is blankness; it is the void. Life is identified with all that is good: with being, rationality, and light. In contrast, death is perceived as evil, as nothingness, and as the dark and irrational. Only the negative perception of death prevails.

We finally seem to be ready to recognize the fundamental error in our view of life and death. We are beginning to understand that death is more than the absence of life; that death, together with active life, is necessary for the formation of a larger, more essential, whole. This greater whole reflects the deeper continuity of life and death that we experience as individuals and express as culture. A central challenge for the coming century will be to establish a culture based on an understanding of the relationship of life and death and of life’s essential eternity. Such an attitude does not disown death, but directly confronts and correctly positions it within the larger context of life.

Buddhism speaks of an intrinsic nature (hossho in Japanese, sometimes translated as "Dharma nature") existing within the depths of phenomenal reality. This nature depends upon and responds to environmental conditions, and it alternates between states of emergence and latency. All phenomena, including life and death, can be seen as elements within the cycle of emergence and latency, or manifestation and withdrawal.

Cycles of life and death can be likened to the alternating periods of sleep and wakefulness. Just as sleep prepares us for the next day’s activity, death can be seen as a state in which we rest and replenish ourselves for new life. In this light, death should be acknowledged, along with life, as a blessing to be appreciated. The Lotus Sutra, the core of Mahayana Buddhism, states that the purpose of existence, the eternal cycles of life and death, is for living beings to "enjoy themselves at ease." It further teaches that sustained faith and practice enable us to know a deep and abiding joy in death as well as in life, to equally "enjoy ourselves at ease" in both. Nichiren describes the attainment of this state as the "greatest of all joys."

Farewell Native. Nam Myoho Renge Kyo.

@zoebear Thank you, zoebear. Schuyler chanted the myoho with his brothers Wes and Randy while they were here at Thanksgiving, having come from, respectively, Grand Rapids and Montreal. Evelette and I tend to the austere Rinzai-Ji tradition, having shared the same teacher as Leonard Cohen.
Schuyler's decline was shockingly (and mercifully) rapid, there being literally less than one full month between his diagnosis and his demise.

He got to chant with fellow members. In the Tibetan Book of Living and Dying, I remember a passage that talks about about living your life the way you want to die. Or, rather, you die the way you live. I believe that and it sounds like Schuyler passed through this life the way I hope to one day. Thanks so much for your reply, and for the pictures. He had a nice face. I'm sure you're sad to see him go. I hope your own Buddhist practice gives you peace and comfort through your grieving.

In many cases, unfairly so. Just because something is simply said, does not mean it lacks profound meaning. I believe it was the Buddhist monk, Thich Nhat Hahn, who once said that when you are prepared to face your mortality, that is the moment when you begin to really live. It is one of those truths that is both simple and profound.

Thanks for the song and the message. Always enjoy a barefooted blue jeaned cowboy singing a good ballad Smile

If this is true of our friend, I'll only ask him (if he can decipher keystrokes where his more enduring existence has gone) to hold a light. When it's my turn to move on, I'm gonna want to find him. Something better will be happening wherever he hangs his hat.

@Unabashed Liberal

It is my understanding that the powerful mantra below is meant to motivate compassion, and alleviate suffering.

Ah, the Mantra of Avalokiteshvara! Specifically, the version on the "back lot" of the Tibetan Incantations album, an old favorite of mine! I owe this chant, as recorded on that album, my entire mental health many times over! Recommended strongly!

A non-Amazon source for the CD.

In the original Sanskrit, the words are "OM mani padme hum", using standard Latin pronunciation. The Tibetan "accent" renders it more like "OM nami pedme hum". In both cases, the meaning is the same: "Hail/praise (i.e., OM) to the Jewel in the Lotus", a veneration of That Which is at the core of all things, and is known by many names among humans: Avalokiteshvara, Tara, OM, JAH, IAO, Satchitananda, The Ultimate, the Buddha, etc. Among Alchemists this is also known as the Philosophers' Stone, the Ultimate Medicine, the Ultimate Reality, the Rose in the Cross, etc. Buddhist tradition states that Avalokiteshvara is the Bodhisattva of Great Compassion and ascribes this Mantra to Him/Her.
a good article on Avalokiteshvara

And let the Compassion of the Buddhas and the Boddhisattvas not be small for our friend native; may their compassion-hooks obtain him in the dangerous path of the Bardo, and grant him Liberation! (From the Bardo Thotrol (The Tibetan Book of the Dead) and my memory.)

knowledgeable than I on this topic. (Which is why I mentioned my 'understanding' of the mantra, as opposed to 'knowing.') I appreciate that you explained the history of the mantra; it was much more informative than the shallow background info that I found and provided.

From time to time, I've debated delving much deeper into Buddhism. Of all things, it was Tina Turner's 'story' that peaked my interest in this philosophy/religion. You probably know that it was her nightmarish/abusive relationship with Ike Turner which led her to Buddhism.

I have to admit, I find some mantras to be very soothing. So, I may follow up, yet.

Have a nice weekend!

The gap is large, but so much more than that of him remains that this gap might be termed, rather, a Lake filled with reason, humanity and enlightenment, a memory-pool within our souls on which we may draw forever...
