    PS - There is no "wrong" or "right" in Zazen ... yet here is a little explanation of the "right" times to Bow (A Koan) ...

    The other video I mention on Zendo decorum is this one, from our "Always Beginners" video Series:

    I also recommend a little Talk on why small rituals and procedures are so cherished in the Zendo:

    As a novice priest-in-training, this is simply an expression of my opinion. Please take it with a grain of salt.

    Here is the calligraphy by Nishijima Roshi which I mentioned today ... received from my Dharma Bro. in Sweden, Fr. Gustav. It says "The whole world in the 10 directions is One Bright Pearl" ... (far left in the picture) ...

    Being a novice priest doesn't mean that my writing about the Dharma is more substantial than yours. Actually, it might well be the other way round.

    Sat On Demand the last 2 mornings.

    "I am not a machine of peace" Love that expression Jundo, boy does that sum me up at times and why I returned to Zen, found Treeleaf and practice daily. Thank you.

    Be safe and well everyone.

    Feel free to message me if you wish to talk about issues around practicing with physical limitations. This is something I have been sitting with for a fair while and am happy to help with suggestions or just offer a listening ear.
