Re: Equanimity

maybe a SINCERE apology would be a good practice.

Re: Equanimity

i, for one, am compelled to express my opinion.
i consider Linda a wise and compassionate voice,
an angel to any zen company,
and a pleasure to be acquainted with.
and to learn from.
as to Envers words, id chalk it down to an unusual sense of humour.
sry for my off-topic interruption.

Re: Equanimity

I wonder what Hakuin had to say about equanimity? Google?
just for info, i did not mean anything.
u said u have not heard.
anyway, i suppose Hakuin was equanimous, lol, a tough word.
sell some equanimous sweets to hakuin or dogen, but, keep the price down low.

Re: Equanimity

james, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yantou_Quanhuo HAKUIN; When I was nineteen I happened to read the [Wu-chia] cheng-tsung tsan, in which the story of how the Master Yen-t'ou was killed by bandits and how his cries at the time resounded for over three li is described. I wondered why such an enligh...

Re: This Forum in Particular

Frankly, I think you have the issue reversed. Ask yourself, why would a Zen teacher, busy leading their sangha, want to participate here? If the members here were engaged in earnest discussions of matters related to Zen practice and teachings and sharing of challenges and experiences, perhaps then ...

Re: Equanimity

Perhaps you see equanimity, and the cultivation of equanimity, as a false refuge from the harsh realities of this human realm of being. It could be so ... hiding, safe and secure, under the blankie of equanimity. very well said. It could also be an energy of courage and confidence in meeting and in...

Re: Equanimity

james, just to ask you..ok...? As I read your words, it seems to me that you are already disturbed by simply thinking of this possibility. Similar harrowing, gruesome circumstances are the reality of many people, many beings, every day. It won’t be quick. how is Equanimity to help one......lol, so m...

Re: picking and choosing

The Heart Sutra says "No Eyes, No Ears..", and yet we hear and see. I wonder why?
having been written, surely someone has seen it, discerned, discriminated..
and, why did he even see? bcs he chose and sought.

are you smoking again in the zen centre?
