We just sit. It is like something happening in the great sky.
I have had the good fortune to have received teachings from three spiritual giants each for eleven years: Shunryu Suzuki-roshi, Zen Master, Paramahansa Yogananda, founder of the Self-Realization Fellowship and, more recently, Adzom Paylo Rinpoche, Tibetan Buddhist sage. The cumulative wisdom of their guidance has taught me both how to think about my life and to be placed in it solidly. Thanks to them I feel my feet on the ground under me. Before them I didn’t even realize I had feet. I am not an easy student. I offer them a deep bow.
