Zazen in Pahoa
I am in Pahao, Big Island, Hawaii tonight ... great town, population 962 in the last census. Pretty much sitting right on top of Kilauea Volcano, which rips through this area with a flood of lava every few decades.
A perfect place for a little Zazen ...
I would like to dedicate tonight's sitting to two friends who have known each other for decades, both of whom have been very kind to my family on this trip, both of whom are unusual gentleman who have lived unusual life stories ... and to the incredible family we met this week. I can't go into details, but what a wonderful story of this family! It was an honor to meet them.
(remember: recording ends soon after the beginning bells;a sitting time of 20 to 35 minutes is recommended)
