A message from Okumura Roshi
The problem which all people are facing now is really about Shoji (Life-and-Death) and Zenki (Total Function).
These are the two fascicles of Shobogenzo I was asked to talk about in London recently. I had to cancel my talks and return home because of the pandemic.
I think the important point of studying Shoji (Life and Death) is that our life is extremely fragile and therefore it is precious.
We need to take care of our life without clinging to it.
Our usual understanding of “my life”
