For your German friends. “Based on Jeff’s teachings in ‘Being Without Self’ but extensively revised and with new material, this book in German presents both a comprehensive and refreshing view on Zen practice; from basic meditation instructions to the controversial topic of Dharma transmission, with a special focus on integrating Zen in everyday life. For details on Der Weg beginnt unter deinen Füßen: Zen für das moderne Leben, please see the publisher’s website here.

No problem. I believe Meido also does retreats in Germany on a regular basis as well.

Those of us who are old in Zen are young in Zen.

And those of us who are young in Zen, well, we/they might as well consider, ...may be old in Zen.

But what is "Zen"? It's "undefined", and really is more like the actuality of something divided by Zero is said to be "undefined", mathematically.

The reason is that "Zen" does not register in the mind of samsara ("Travelling"). And, it cannot. Simply DOES not.

But practice can bring it out, with luck and good cooperating-causes and -conditions, with Teacher and sangha, almost never otherwise, as one cannot be hard on oneself as a teacher can! That's for sure!! Check it!

Go ahead, refute that, Mr./Ms. Dubious. :lol:

Best is to practice correctly, as correctly as possible. :D And have cohorts/co-Bodhisattvas.

Yours, always, anyways,

--Joe

Zen and Samsara are as old as the hills, ever looking out for each other.
It cannot be otherwise and IS not.

Grow old with it, if you must, or wanna, sure. But Samsara (samsara) is no great shakes. I wouldn't feature it in my Resume.

When I come back, Samsara is to be presumed, of my past, surely, and is to be superceded, preceded, by Our true and Original nature. I mean, I hope I can bring that reality to bear, if indeed future lives are to be real. And so I vow in this life to do just that. If not sufficient in this life, well, then, maybe in the next. But, I've been fortunate in this life... . Why not hope to continue that, if possible? For self, and for all beings?

Dunno. I've been told for a lot of years, told to, ..."BE HERE NOW". So this is "IT": Alan Watts said so, too, though, he also said that he never sat (see his autobiography). Minor stuff, this/that. Just conversing.

Strong practice,

It’s the greatest shakes there is. Would you want your resumé to be a blank slate? Your resumé is how you are with Samsara.
When I come back,
You are already back
… Samsara is to be presumed, of my past, surely, and is to be superceded, preceded, by Our true and Original nature.
No. Samsara is the fierce, vibrant, endless reality. As is the true and original nature. Nothing to do with past or future or even present. Original and true are always so. The Samsara is always so.
I mean, I hope I can bring that reality to bear, if indeed future lives are to be real. And so I vow in this life to do just that. If not sufficient in this life, well, then, maybe in the next. But, I've been fortunate in this life... . Why not hope to continue that, if possible? For self, and for all beings?
If you are meaning the reality of fearless, unconditional embracing of the Samsara, the Zen way, in this life and any other purported lives, for self and all beings ... yes!
Dunno. I've been told for a lot of years, told to, ..."BE HERE NOW". So this is "IT": Alan Watts said so, too, though, he also said that he never sat (see his autobiography). Minor stuff, this/that. Just conversing.
Alan Watts said a lot of things that we don’t necessarily accept. So why believe when he says he never sat?
Strong practice
You too.

Enjoyed it.
