No Class on February 9

Our class will be preempted by another event at Austin Zen Center, a five-day “Genzo-e” retreat with Shohaku Okurmura Roshi. We will meet again on February 16 at the usual time. Thank you for your patience.

On patience. In the middle of our construction phase at the Sitagu monastery, the head electrician, a burley Romanian, once expressed his regret at the inevitable delays during construction.

“I bet you anxious you move into new cabin,” he said.

“I’m patient,” I replied.

“Buddhist not be patient like Romanian not drink Wodka.”
