“Living for 100 years doesn’t compare with living for one day and arousing determination for the Way.”
As the New York Zen Center engages in a Commit to Sit period and as the world reels from issues of inequality, Sensei Chodo delivers a dharma talk on the importance of practice. He reminds us to practice being present; even when we don’t have time; even while reflecting on nature or the protests.
Sensei Robert Chodo Campbell is a co-founder of the New York Zen Center for Contemplative Care and is part of the core faculty for the Buddhist Track in the Master in Pastoral Care and Counseling at Zen Center’s education partner, New York Theological Seminary.
Music: Heart Sutra by Kanho Yakushiji – Buddhist priest and a musician of the Rinzai sect and Imaji temple in Imabari, Japan. In 2003, he formed “KISSAQUO”, a songwriting duo based in Kyoto.
