Being an Ordinary Human

Patrick Yunen Kelly, Senior Lay Student

Zen Center of New York City, 02/24/2019

 

In this talk, Yunen, works with the pervading sense of lack, and our striving to “get somewhere else”, which forms the defining characteristic of samsaric existence, and which we inevitably bring into our practice. He then encourages us to wholeheartedly embrace our humanity, and to engage ourselves and our life (and all of its confusion and disappointments ) with courage, compassion, and joy.
