When practicing a koan like Who am I? you place the mind in the tanden. Does this mean that you ask the question in combination with the in and outbreath or do you become one with the question without connecting it to the rhythm of the breath but still stay settled in the tanden?

"WHO AM I" Seeing, hearing, Smelling, Tasting, Feeling, Working in your feet, in your hands, in your whole body, Who Am I? Your awareness becomes WHO AM I ? When you hear become the hearing. Do not try to understand or add anything that would separate you. And then you simply become one with what you are. Do not leave any ideas behind.

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