Zazen Meditation with Jundo : Life is Our Temple

| No Comments

The "slogan" of our Sangha is Life is our Temple.

I truly believe that, perhaps for the first time in history, it is more fruitful for us to practice and learn Buddhism outside of a monastery than inside. In the past, one had to go to a monastery to access Buddhist writings, teachers and a chance to practice Zazen. No longer.

In fact, if you can't do this Zen thing out in the heart of daily life ... what's the purpose? If you want to find out "who you truly are", you can find it there as much as anywhere.

So, what follows are some ordinary stories of the Zen of changing diapers, going to the park, fighting with my wife in the car (yes, that is Zen practice too). It is as true and rich a chance to practice as lighting incense and ringing bells in some dusty old temple.

(remember: recording ends soon after the beginning bells;
a sitting time of 20 to 35 minutes is recommended)
