Zazen in a Cheap Motel

| No Comments
Zazen today in the motel where we are staying ... 'cause my family and I are on vacation!

I mean Buddhists are allowed to have fun too ... and frolic on the beach sometimes. It's not all about 'suffering' you know (though even a beach can be 'suffering' if one is attached to being there ... or forgets the sunblock ... unless at one with a sunburn)

Anyway, being a Zen Teacher is a high stress job with no future or benefits (no past either, of course, nor demerits), and I really need to get away to relax sometimes ...  (yes, of course, there is 'no place to go' ... but if ya find a good air deal, why not head out of town?). Even the Buddha must have had a week off now and then from Buddha-ing

So, I'll post some family photos soon ... me on the beach in my Speedos® and waterproof Rakusu (just kidding about the Rakusu ... and the Speedos® too)




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