iv just read the whole lot, that is there to peek at.
very impressive, really. a clear and really understandable, not only introduction,
but quite a lot more.
excellent!

The subforum only appeared wrong to the unenlightened, while the rest of us have transcended such dualisms as wrong subforum vs right subforum, etc

Wait...

Larry, I was at work, so there weren’t conditions for that temptation to be fulfilled :D

Hi folks, hope you enjoy the book and find it useful.

Apologies to all for my general inactivity here: this week we are finishing up construction at Korinji ( where it is pretty cold but things are not so bad :) A few of us are moving in now.

No online access there yet, so for the next few weeks I won't be able to check in much.

Wishing best to all!

Hehe nice Bokki
We had a Thai Army officer over to the house (years ago) it’s traditional for officers to train in each other’s countries, hence she was in Kansas but stationed I don’t know where. Any way te conditions in officer housing in Thailand was so poor that officers from NO countries would go there. I’ve also heard that throughout Southeast Asia when locals travel by ground and happen upon a temple they will stay there but Westerners, even those there tobsee the temples won’t stay in them- interesting how easy life is in the western world?

Thanks Larry. I wonder if we can tempt Meido into doing a Shambala online course about general breathing, posture, and other physical factors in zazen. Seem a good fit for the format.
