San Francisco Zen Center invites you to a presentation by two young immigrants who will discuss the challenges they and others who are undocumented are facing.
by Rev. Gendo Lucy Xiao (玄道)
Recently I gave meditation instruction at SFZC’s City Center. When I asked the newcomers what brought them to meditation, one person mentioned “peace of mind,” and another said “to be freed from suffering.” It struck me that no matter who we are, there is a common thread that brings us to practice—our inner-most desire to be freed from suffering and to live in peace and happiness.
The abbatial leadership and all at San Francisco Zen Center join with people throughout this country and the world in mourning those who lost their lives, the hundreds who were wounded, and the families and friends of so many who were harmed in the indiscriminate killing of innocent people in Las Vegas. We also thank the many individuals—professional police, fire fighters, paramedics, ambulance drivers, doctors and nurses, as well as the citizens at the scene—who risked their lives to help protect and save, and recover one another.
by Abbess Furyu Schroeder and the Curriculum Committee of Green Gulch Farm Zen Center
This summer at Green Gulch Farm, residents together took up the theme of the “Dharma study of racial karma,” a deep and sustained exploration of the non-separation of the Bodhisattva Vow, community life, and racial justice.
