There is nothing real to seek 'out there'...

Do you believe in a soul?

The soul appears because we have a body, so when the body dies, the is not some bodiless soul floating around. In this universe there are unending numbers of galaxies. Theyare being born, exist and disperse again. Yet all this happens within the space of the universe. The same if true for our life. We humans get born, thus separating ourselves from Buddha Nature, and returning there when we die. Buddha Nature exists beyond any death, just like the universe. This is what the Buddha realized. All ancients as well had the same experience.

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