Zen World, Dharma time!


The local Zen group that I run, the Original Mind Zen Sangha, has just been given a great opportunity: one of our sangha members films for Princeton Community Television and offered to broadcast my Dharma talks. This means that our group will have a 30-minute spot on a local channel every week--how cool is that! We're on right after Wayne's World. But seriously, talk about a great way to spread the word about our group, build our fledgling sangha, and support the Dharma.

We taped our first episode this past Sunday, May 20th. I spoke for 30 minutes about Five Mountain Zen practice, figuring that was as good of a place to start as any. Surprisingly, I wasn't nervous at all. As often is the case with public speaking, I grew more comfortable as I went on.

Once the video is up and running, I will post a link, because it will be available online.

Thank you Andrew for offering to tape and edit the video; I appreciate all of the hard work and time this project entails. This is an amazing opportunity for us to reach and help people, and we couldn't do this without you.

Thanks also to my teacher, Ven. Paul Lynch, who has been nothing but supportive during the entire founding process of the Original Mind Zen Sangha. I am grateful for all of your encouragement, trust, and empowerment.
