Bringing the Sacred to Life

Bringing the Sacred to Life:

A common misconception reduces Zen practice to silent, seated meditation. 

Chanting sutras is Zen practice. Bowing to Buddha statues is Zen practice. 

Carrying water is Zen practice. Chopping wood is Zen practice. Washing pots is Zen practice.

Anything which humbles the ego-self to let the Buddha-self shine through is Zen practice.
