    'The ZEN of EVERYTHING! Podcast' ... Episode 20 ....

    Episode 20: Zen in the Time of Coronavirus

    With a potential pandemic looming, Jundo and Kirk talk about rumors, unreasonable and reasonable fear, plagues of the past and today, and a good Zen attitude to sickness and death. We actually get a chuckle in now and then too.

    Question

    Thanks Jundo and Kirk for sharing some humo(u)r, sanity and zen wisdom (maybe don't stockpile yet for the zombie apocalypse yet)! I've been pondering on what it means to be a Bodhisattva at this time. It's an unusual situation when "helping" largely means reducing our impact on others. Is there a more active side? This may be a stupid question, as it's either difficult to generalize, or sometimes maybe common-sense, but it's something that's got me a-thinkin'. Any thoughts?

    Gassho, Chris sattoday/lah

    Great point Chris! I think that reducing our impact on others really is on the “active side”. Some thoughts

    - practice good hygiene
    - practice social distancing
    - minimize your impact on the already overwhelmed medical system
    - don’t hoard supplies
    - be patient and accepting..... this is uncharted territory for everyone .... we are all doing our best
    - accept that the world has changed
    - help others who are worried, panicking.
    - practice equanimity
    - chop wood, carry water, wash hands.

    Our next episode, to be recorded tomorrow, will be on the "Zen of Quarantine," making this a chance for practice. I will include some of these ideas, Tairin.

    Thank you, Jundo.

    Very timely given the lockdown and resource chaos in Australia this week.
