I have posted on the Leaf Blog a short description by Nishijima Roshi of the "Twelve-fold Chain of Dependent Origination", one of the Buddha's fundamental theories. Even folks who say "I am not that interested in Buddhist philosophy right now" should have some familiarity with it ... so please review the same even so. It is that important and basic to Buddhist Practice.

The posting is part of our "Heart Sutra" series of "Sit-a-Longs", and while there is no talk today, I will talk about it on Sunday. We will also have our "Live" Saturday sitting tonight, from Midnight, Japan Time.
