Ven. Bupsahng Chaplain simply calls it strong medicine. Zen is a direct path to help oneself. We must discover what is this I that is not I?
Through our human history our grasping mind has served us well in survival. However, this busy grasping mind has also caused great pain in our human history.
Yogis and awakened beings have found simple techniques that can help us find peace and realize our true nature. Mindfulness practice is the first gateway to becoming aware and from that awareness, wisdom grows.
Through mindful breathing, sitting, walking, working, standing, lying down, speaking, being silent, and being still, we become aware of the sacredness that is always present.
