SIT-A-LONG with JUNDO: Jomon Zazen

| No Comments


Just 10 metres from the temporary house where we are staying in Tsukuba, they've found remains of the Jomon people (who lived in Japan up to the 4th century). On top of it are some farmers' houses from the 7th, 8th and 9th centuries. Folks from the university, and dozens of volunteers, are excavating before construction crews start work on a new building there.

I guess the only 'lesson' today is that, as the Buddha said, 'All Things Are Change, Nothing Is Permanent' ( except, I guess, the rule that 'All Things Are Change' ;-) ) ...

We'll sit with this impermanence, right in this instant place and time ....

I hope all those diggers find what they're looking for, and you too.
