Geoffrey Shugen Arnold, Roshi
Zen Center of New York City, Fire Lotus Temple, Sunday 06/25/2023
Shugen Roshi offers teachings on Patience, the 3rd of the Paramitas. In the Mahayana tradition, there are three forms of patience that are understood to be essential to the Bodhisattva path: practicing how to hold injuries that come to us, to forebear what is difficult, and to face the true nature of the realities in which we live. In the midst of injustice and frustrations of all kinds, the practice of patience is the revolution that opens up our capacity to respond.
