Formal Practice @ Far Hills

In Zen, meditation is not special. It is not separate from everyday life. When you’re doing something, just do it. But that’s very hard for people to do, so we have very simple forms of the formal meditation, sitting, bowing, chanting. Then we use these simple forms to take away our karma, then finally, when we’re doing something, we can just do it. Then our meditation and our everyday life aren’t separate. Then our whole life becomes spiritual practice. So, in this world, many people understand the word meditation, but they think it’s something special, and don’t understand true and correct meditation. That is why Zen teaching is very wonderful, very clear.
