Respected Roshi. After 20 years of seeking truth in different religions and philosophies I have finally come full circle back to Zen practice. I have a lower back injury which means I am always in pain when sitting. Is there a posture less demanding than half lotus that I can use? With a bow to you

The purpose is not in the sitting itself. As it is said: working is Zen, sitting and standing is Zen, all of the day´s activities are zen. Sitting is only one aspect of the practice, yet that essence of mind can be found in any situation. You only need to be wide and open in mind.

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