We Should Remember

Prabu Gikon Vasan, Senior Lay Practitioner

Zen Center of New York City, 11/17/2019

Senior lay student Gikon discusses a Pali text, the Mahanama Sutra, to offer insight into overcoming obstacles for practitioners who are trying to maintain a vibrant and meaningful practice outside of a full time Monastic setting. We begin in whatever small ways we can to bring ourselves into accord with the teachings by degrees by using whatever helps us—as the Buddha urges in this sutra—to remember the Three Treasures, our own virtues, our own generosity and the example of the gods and devas.
