SUNDAY ZEN: Koans That Give You Vertigo – Stop the Sound of the Temple Bell: with John Tarrant & Friends

September 25, 2022 @ 10:30 am - 12:00 pm

Free – $10


Mysterious Tasks & Impossible Problems

When autumn begins, some things dissolve, and space appears even inside predicaments. September rhymes with memory, piled up gold and blue distances appear together, sometimes the spiritual life helps you out of difficulties. You can become one with the flow of events. 

Stop the sound of the distant temple bell.

That bell has been ringing since before the beginning of the stars, outside of all our calculations and measurements, and perhaps we see that we are all interconnected and interwoven.

—John Tarrant

Meditation is not a task with a known goal. It’s something you can’t do wrong, a chance for the things of this world to come towards you and to meet you, for doors to open by themselves, and for us to see where the ancient paths lead.

Waking up is something we do together, in the online temple on Sunday. We love it when you join us. 

—John Tarrant Roshi and all of us at PZI
