My wife of 44 years and 4 months passed away on the annual (lunar) celebration day of Guan Yin bodhisattva, which this year was Sunday, March 22. She was diagnosed with a terminal illness on February 25. Within one hour of being admitted into the hospital, the cruel, highly unprofessional doctors at the hospital told us she had 4-6 weeks to live and one of them added "maybe three." Needless to say, this site has been ignored since February 25. We are now trying to re-start the newsletter and the podcasts; please bear with us as we try to get up and running again. Today I begin a re-writing of the site to reflect what I have learned in these past few weeks. A lot of changes will be made.
This site offers a unique ten step course on how to practice the Buddha Dharma, not limited to the Zen school, and includes a novel approach to Zen koans. The full website is accessed through the navigation buttons at the top of this page or by clicking on the five rotating photos above.
