Thank you for this teaching. As a performing artist, I often am left with the impression that my profession isn't considered to be "right livelihood" by many practitioners and certain teachers; that it is something that should be relinquished. Indeed, there is a rich tradition of Buddhist art in painting, sculpture, calligraphy, poetry: and a very conspicuous lack of Buddhist expression in the performing arts; dance, theatre, and music. I know first hand of the transformational power that the performing arts have in our lives, and often wonder why they seem to have been left out of many Buddhist traditions. You have inspired me to look further in to the practice of Pure Land.
