< Back to Question and Answer

My partner and I have caused deep suffering to each other. I have accepted the suffering he inflicted in the past and am dealing with it thanks to Zen. But he cannot move on from the past. As a result he is causing more suffering to both of us. How can I help him? He does not practice Zen but I do.

Zazen is NOT about the form of sitting. The true teaching of the Buddha is that Zazen is motion and sitting. You can find tranquility in all actions of the day. 24 hours of the day are zazen. Cooking is zazen. Cleaning is zazen.

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