Re: A Zen Story

There is a Zen story that goes like this. ‘Master, how do I enter Zen?’ asked the pupil.

Re: KENSHO. Your experience, your thoughts..?

Just copy your comment about kensho being a dream, send it via email to the contact address at the websites, and then, maybe, share the response, if you get one? I've made a contact with Rev. Genjo Marinello, Abbot Seattle Zen Temple Dai Bai Zan Cho Bo Zen Ji www.choboji.org The master is a very ge...

Re: KENSHO. Your experience, your thoughts..?

I don't really see the value in commenting on other people's practice. For one thing it's very hard to gauge from a few words on the screen. And another is that we have no clue as to their background, where they are coming from and what it truly means to them. Maybe most importantly, we are all beg...
