July, 13 and 14. Shorin-ji Zen temple In this sesshin we deeply practice zazen and devote the samu time to the sewing of kesa. The kesa is the robe given by the Buddha to his disciples. It is the skin of zazen, it expresses freedom of spirit, the dignity of the posture, happiness without bonds. Through a transformative process, the Buddha’s disciples collected cloths that nobody wanted, the lowliest and dirtiest: rags gnawed by rats, clothes used to cover corpses…

To move from the insubstantial world towards what is important constitutes a personal choice; to reject a limited ego…

Many a time in my youth, I sat down for long hours in zazen, Hoping to master by practice the art of quiet breathing. What virtue I now have in me to foster my heart’s peace, I owe it to the hard discipline I underwent in my youth. Ryôkan (1758-1831) Japanese monk-poet of the Edo period.

Practice has peeks and drops, but persists and, as it happens, February begins with a sesshin. Some things captivate us and others escape our attention. The illusion that endless engrossment in daily activities, related to work and leisure, will lead us somewhere, will lead us far, it is out there. Yet out there there’s also the Buddha’s Way. To take the posture is the right thing to do. On February 1 and 2 the Sangha meets with Teacher Barbara Kosen…
