Zen Mountain Monastery

My favourite zen priest, Geoffrey Shugen Arnold, Roshi talks about Chau Chou's three turning words

"Huik’e stood in the snow all night outside of Bodhidharma’s cave. Mother Theresa looked for Christ in the knowing smile between caregiver and cared for, even as she struggled at times to feel connected with God. In this talk from January’s New Year Sesshin, Shugen Roshi asks, what for you constitutes putting your faith on the line?"

He has a wonderful way of describing the teachings of zen.
