Traditionally, there are two ways of viewing Buddha nature. First, as a sentient being's potential to reach Enlightenment and become a Buddha. And second, as the inherent quality that all sentient beings possess--their true nature. Original Mind Zen Sangha, in Seung Sahn's and the Five Mountain Zen tradition, strives to help people realize the latter.
Here's a link to our page webpage. If you or anyone you know are looking for a Zen group to sit with in central New Jersey, please consider giving us a visit. We will meet in Princeton at Fellowship in Prayer on Sundays, from 7-9 p.m.
Thanks so much to my wife Jackie for her constant encouragement. And of course to Rev. Paul Lynch for his counsel, patience, and support.
Throughout all of this, I am inspired by the words of Seung Sahn: "Reach Enlightenment and then save all sentient beings." I'm working on it, Master Seung Sahn; I'm working on it. In the meantime, I will help beings any way that I can.
