Bio:

The man reborn—or was he reawakened?—as Django Moon grew up in London, but got out as soon as he could. The tropics of South-East Asia became his home, and where he slowly progressed from human doing to human being. As ‘being’ took over, Django was able to rise again, leading the way back to nature and love, through solitude, meditation and humour. This journey is reflected in the writings found here.


Currently he’s practising ‘The Art of Sacred Idling’ between his homes on the island of Penang, and in the mystical mountains of Togakushi, Japan. 


General Information:

THE VIPASSANA TRILOGY


It all began like this: a middle-aged man was having a mid-life crisis (the 5th by his reckoning, the first having been when he was 19). He found himself to be very free, without a permanent female companion, and his only son heading off to university far, far away. Wanting to ‘get his head together’, he decided a Vipassana ten-day silent retreat would be a great way to start, and so it was. Whether it got his head together, or blew it apart, is for you, the reader, to decide.


‘Confessions of a Serial Meditator’ describes that experience, what led him to it, and what it led him to. ‘Adventures of a Wannabe Buddha’ soon descended into ‘Trials of a Wannabe Buddha’, but even that felt more like being committed than the freedom he knew he had, but couldn’t quite run to earth. That’s when the alien showed up, dressed as a Blues Brother, and the real adventure began. The Wannabe Buddha became a ‘Monk on a Mission’, a paradoxical combination of a modern-day ascetic and cosmic comic. Enter Django Moon...


As the meditations deepened, and consciousness heightened, it was clear that there was more at stake than one man’s mind, and the battle within it: our beloved Mother Earth was going through her own mid-life crisis (perhaps her 5th one too?). Of course she would be fine, in time, but the future of her master species—yep, us lot; you, me and every other poor soul—was in the balance. The end of the world, or the dawn of a new age?


Impermanence: To Live and to Die. Which way will it go? Only one way to find out. And don’t forget, this is a true story… it just hasn’t happened yet.

Vipassana III - Impermanence: To Live and To Die : Volume Three

By: Anonymous

This is a true story. It hasn’t happened yet, but it will. Sooner than you think. Don’t fear it, welcome it: it is for the best. Are you one of them? One of the best? Will you make it? Will you choose to live or to die? Or more’s to the point, can you accept life in all its guises, and still be enthusiastic about it? If not, then you may as well be dying. In fact you already are. The world, as you know it, may end, but the Earth won’t die, so why should you? Wouldn...

Following on from ‘Confessions of a Serial Meditator’, the trials of living with a new girlfriend, her pre-teen daughters, and her dying mother, pose the stiffest test any Vipassana yogi and wannabe Buddha could ever hope to face. When the equanimity slips, where do you run to? Who will come to help? Would modern-day asceticism be ‘the way’ (out)? What adventures could possibly await an aspiring Buddha with itchy feet and a desire to ‘keep ‘em laughing’? The battle within continues…
