SIT-A-LONG with JUNDO:वज Vajra (Thunderbolt)

| No Comments

I like to mix the Buddhist philosophical talk and Dogen-think with just sitting, just being-experiencing ... life. Our practice is not complete without both sides of the coin, I believe. So, when this thunderstorm came along today ... nature's summons to the Zafu.

We are leaving Coconut Creek in a couple of weeks, back to Japan. They sure have some roof-rattling rains here in Florida! The lightning and thunder brings one into the moment, much as a when a big 'OoDaiko'
drum is struck at the end of evening Zazen.

Thus shall ye think of all this fleeting world:

A star at dawn, a bubble in a stream;

A flash of lightning in a summer cloud,

A flickering lamp, a phantom, and a dream.

-the Diamond Sutra, XXXII

(There is no bell for this sitting. Please self-time: Approximately 25 minutes)
