Science says the Universe was created at 'Big Bang' and Christians, Muslims and Jews believe that God created it. How was the Universe created according to Zen?


This universe was neither created by a Big Bang nor did God make it. Who is it that is aware of this world? Are these your thoughts? Is it some scientific experiment? Are these memories from the past? The fresh experience can only be found in that instant of your fresh awareness. That is what it means to be alive. Only with the fresh awareness can we be really alive.


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