One Mind Zen celebrates Vesak, in our lineage, the Buddha's birthday. Other traditions celebrate the birth, enlightenment and death (paranirvana) all on the same day. But in the spirit on no birth/no-death, we celebrate his birth on May 4. (See the Diamond Sutra if that makes no sense!)
Cake is optional.
This week, we'll have our usual sitting and walking meditation, some chanting, and a talk & discussion on "It is What It Is."
Come join us. If you're new to us, come at 6:30. Otherwise, meditation starts promptly at 7:00PM, so please arrive by 6:45.
This Thursday, in addition to Zen meditation & chanting, we'll have a talk and discussion on the preta, the Hungry Ghost.餓鬼
Don't be scared, it's only a metaphor...or is it?

In addition to our regular Zen meditation & chanting, we'll have a talk & discussion of the Buddhist Precepts. (First of a series).
We'll meditate, chant, and have a talk & discussion on the direct experience of reality: Where we are, where we think we're going, and what it will be like when we get there.
We'll have our usual sitting & walking meditation and chanting augmented with a talk/discussion of Bodhidharma's "Breakthrough Sermon." Go to the "Bodhidharma Resources tab to download a copy.
As always, from 6:45-8:30 Thursday evenings we're at Studio (r)Evolution #422

Here is an excerpt of Bodhidharma's Outline of Practice for week 1:
"Many methods lead to the Path; however, fundamentally there are only two: reason and practice. To enter by reason means to realize the essence through instruction and to trust that all living things share the same true nature, yet this is not apparent because our normal perception is shrouded in sensation and delusion."
