    Wait, really? 'Cause I was starting to think it was all some Zen trick, reading by non-reading or something. :lol:

    Thanks for that. Chet, I am new to the study of Buddhism and I understand that there are differences between the Rinzai and the Soto traditions of Zen study. The Rinzai use koans to help them achieve enlightenment? I thought that Soto Zen was not as heavily dependent on the study of koans, but instead the centered on the practice of shikantaza; however, is there no pondering of koans in Soto at all? Could someone elaborate on this for me? Thank you.

    Please standby for an answer (not to the koans, perhaps, but at least to your question about koans! 8) ) This topic will be the subject of some posts and talks in the coming days as we get ready for the Book of Serenity Koan collection.

    In what other Zendo could you find support, comfort, and help at anytime of the day or night? Where else can you go anytime and re-experience that help whenever you need it by re-connecting and re-reading and reaching or reaching out again if you need? Does it get any more real?

    Not even my loving husband, whom I should not call now because it is 3 hours later where he is than where I am, seems any more real. To me, at this moment in time, nothing is more real than here. Gassho, Grace.
