What is the role of emotions in our search for truth?

We sit Zazen for our emotions. Whether we sit or not, our wisdom can perceive what is right and what is wrong in that very moment. But our emotions, even when we know how they should be, it is hard to correct and adjust them. That is why we need to sit and sort out the emotional confusion. When we reach a place where no further thoughts need to enter, then we have aligned our emotions well.

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