Zen This Week || The Arrogance of Health and Youth

Tuesday Night Sit @ 7 || 2 sits and 1 talk

“I used the teachings of the Buddha, Dogen Zenji, Sawaki Roshi, and Uchiyama Roshi to fulfill my own desires. This discovery completely broke my ‘arrogance of youth and health’. I saw clearly that my practice had not been for the sake of Buddha Dharma but for my own self-satisfaction.” 

Why would one of the most respected teachers in American Zen say this? I dunno. Come tonight and find out!

This Sunday, Nat’s giving at talk on Buddhism at Sri Ganesha Temple at 3pm. It’s a part of a really cool event called the Annual Caravan Tour of Places of Worship. Basically, people sign up and ride buses to various places of worship in Nashville including a mosque, a synagogue, several churches, and, of course, the Hindu temple that Nat will be speaking at.

You can find out more about the tour and sign up on at the Islamic Center of Nashville’s website (http://www.icntn.org)

Or you can just go to the Sri Ganesha Temple at 3pm to hear Nat give a discourse on Buddhism.

Finally, I’d like to thank everyone that went to the Potluck/Opening Ceremony of Against The Stream’s new building. NZC will be moving in with ATS in November. We had a mind-blowingly good time there. ATS are super sincere students of Buddhism and we couldn’t be more thrilled to be sharing space with them.

*Deep Bows and Much Excite!*
