    All fates are unique. No situation is ever repeated. Thereby, human beings are forced to take different actions depending on each situation. No one can take his place as a substitute for the suffering of another. There is only one chance that the person who has assigned this fate can take on this suffering and do something unique.

    Viktor Frankl is a psychiatrist and concentration camp survivor during WWll, who wrote "Man's Search for Meaning" on how finding meaning in terrible situations helps people survive.

    I heard from Kakunen.

    He found a monastery to take him in, so he won't be so isolated now. He'll have a roof over his head, a dry place to sleep and lots of Zazen time.

    How are you from Kakunen

    I will go to Myotoku-ji from this weekend.

    We will start 7days Sesshin from June 1st.

    I am grad to go there,and feel little bit fear,because head monk teaches Shobo-Genzo(Only one teacher at there) at 1st temple Eihei-ji,maybe I need to do hard practice.

    I respect him,and our common language is English.(I always practice with foreigners)

    For me good experience for my life,and I feel this flow is my fortune.

    And I need to say thank you to all Treeleafer.

    My life was hard and now I am on the way to practice.

    But Buddhism always helped me,so I keep on practicing.

    Please practice with me.

    Hi.

    I leave Annon-ji (Head monk master Jinen)and will go to Myotoku-ji.

    About head monk Furusaka.(Head monk of Myotoku-ji)

    https://www.zen-guide.de/zen/meister...Furusaka+Roshi

    Sorry in German.

    Myotokji-ji is at deep forest,we do lots of Sesshin,and hard work like Antaiji.

    I like to practice at kind of Sawaki Roshi style.

    How are you from Kakunen

    I am on the way to Myotoku-ji.

    Because of coronavirus,I spend time to go there for 24hours.

    Very hard way.

    But I need to go.



    I can remember day,when I went to Antai-ji ,for few years ago,I had no money,no friends,no family.

    But Jundo helped me to go there.

    This time I can go there by myself.

    Always Jundo helped me.

    Thank you so much.

    It is a small world in many ways. That osprey pack was made in a town just across the boarder from me. About 50 miles away. I go to that town to buy hay for my horses. The osprey folks are good people and make great packs.
