Jody Hojin Kimmel, Sensei
Zen Mountain Monastery, 09/25/2020
We may find ourselves asking who is Jizo Bodhisattva? How do they relate to my life, in this moment?
Hojin Sensei offers us direct insight into these questions, touching the heart of our Ango practice, and offering it our hearts. A heart to heart transmission. By pulling together ancient teachings and contemporary poets Hojin shows that we are Jizo Bodhisattva. When we let our Bodhicitta swell into our awareness we manifest as Jizo Bodhisattva. Here in this moment! We offer our compassion to our family, our friends, animals and even inanimate “objects”. We experience kindness from complete strangers, and are inspired to step forward. Know this truth, and walk unhindered in any realm of existence for the sake of all beings.
