Now its been 1/2 year ago that the tsunami hit Japan and it make me think about what to do when these catastrophes happen. In Denmark we where very affected of the Norwegian youth mass murder some time ago. What can we do as laypeople in such circumstances? I would like to know what the traditional zen way to respond to catastrophes is.
