Zazen in the MRI Machine

| No Comments
I had my annual physical today, the way they do it in Japan.

(Wow, I hope my fellow Americans soon get a national health insurance system like they have here in Japan ... let's just say that there is not an inch or opening of the body left untouched, and it cost me what a single emergency room visit used to run me in the States. As a matter of fact, an emergency room visit last week in Japan, with x-rays and tests and such,  cost me the equivalent of $20 US ... and I got excellent treatment).

But, anyway,  today as I was stuffed into the MRI machine, later as the tummy camera was stuffed down my throat, then as something else was stuffed somewhere for the prostate exam ... each presented a perfect time for a moment of Zazen ...  (I bet you knew I was gonna say that)


(I'm talking about the Zazen!)

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