    Enso

    Zen Circles of Enlightenment

    • by
    • Audrey Yoshiko Seo

    Zen and the Way of Being Time

    • by
    • Dainin Katagiri
    It’s easy to regard time as a commodity—we even speak of “saving” or “spending” it. We often regard it as an enemy, when we feel it slipping away before we’re ready for time to be up. The Zen view of time is radically different than that: time is not something separate from our life; rather, our life is time. Understand this, says Dainin Katagiri Roshi, and you can… Read More
