    Brave New Old World or Help!

    First I would like to express my sincere gratitude to all who make this online sangha possible. I am so glad I joined treeleaf Zendo. I am immersed in going through all the talks and teachings by Taigu and Jundo regarding basics on Zazen, Zen Buddhism. I find myself immersed in a brand new flavor of Buddhism and associated things that I have NO knowledge of. I am wondering if there is anywhere on this site that explains some of the spices in this stew?

    For example, what is a rakusu, taku, and all these other wonderful things/traditions I am looking at? ASSUME I know nothing and you are off to a good start.

    I don't need a drawn out answer if there is a simple source to point me to

    Hi Clark,

    Glad to welcome you here too. I often say something like "We are not an 'online Sangha', just a Sangha that happens to be online".

    Like anything new or any new Sangha you visit, there may be many goings on that take awhile to recognize. Besides the beginner's (we are all always beginner's) videos ...


    ... our little PDF booklet on basic sitting ...


    ... and some other talks and materials by Taigu and me on basic this and that of Shikantaza and Soto Zen Practice (filed away in the sub-forums here) ...


    ... we have a book list of suggested reading for folks new to Shikantaza ...


    But more than so, I would suggest TIME AND PATIENCE, lots of SITTING, because though our Way is Timeless, it is true that Rome Was Not Built In A Day.

    Oh, and I am not ashamed to say that Wikipedia often is quite adequate on Buddhist topics and helps too!


    Gassho, Jundo

    Thank you for your replies. I appreciate the time. My sitting will have to be punctuated by some research, at least for now.
