Ron Hogen Green, Sensei
Zen Mountain Monastery, 5/19/2019
Book of Equanimity, Case 8: “Baizhang and the Fox”
Riding the waves of life is not a problem, in fact it can be joyful, even with karma playing out as it will. Hogen Sensei explores the workings of karma as never the result of one single action but an interplay between choices and situations, some of which we can see and others that we cannot. Even an enlightened being, however, should not ignore cause and effect, and neither should we.
