What can we do if we have very little time to practice sitting zazen due to our work and family obligations?

Zazen is not about some kind of form. Zazen practised in the zendo is called: creative working inside. You can throw away all concerns about the outside. Zazen practised outside the zendo is called creative working in daily action. While being in the midst of duality, using the vitality of the tanden, pushing forward with your own energy. The practice outside the zendo is more important than the practice in the zendo. There is no one who experienced enlightenment in the zendo. The chance for awakening lies in your daily practice.

Due to Roshi's busy schedule this year, we are currently not accepting any new questions at this time
