Practicing Zazen


The more you practice zazen, the more you will be able to accept something as your own, whatever it is.

- Shunryu Suzuki



Everything around me is my own - the bed, the desk, the house... Though Zazen meditation is usually done in the seated position, here I am practicing it in the more beneficial reclining paw-paw pose, or Supta Padahastasana, which I discuss in my book. Everyone should practice this every day! Me-Ommmmm
