Sat Feb 7

"To give your sheep or cow a large, spacious meadow is the way to control him."
- Shunryu Suzuki

Saturday Zen Service, Feb 7: 10:00am - 11:45am.

Reading for this week: "Control" from Shunryu Suzuki, Zen Mind, Beginner's Mind
'The only effort that will help you is to count your breathing, or to concentrate on your inhaling and exhaling. We say concentration, but to concentrate your mind on something is not the true purpose of Zen. The true purpose is to see things as they are, to observe things as they are, and to let everything go as it goes. This is to put everything under control in its widest sense.'
