Each Moment is the Universe PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Each Moment is the Universe free pdf It s easy to regard time as a commodity we even speak of saving or spending it. We often regard it as an enemy, when we feel it slipping away before we re ready for time to be up. The Zen view of time is radically different than that: time is not something separate from our life- rather, our life "is" time. Understand this, says Dainin Katagiri Roshi, and you can live fully and freely right where you are in each moment. Katagiri bases his teaching on "Being Time," a text by the most famous of all Zen masters, Eihei Dogen (1200 1253), to show that time is a creative, dynamic process that continuously produces the universe and everything in it and that to understand this is to discover a gateway to freedom from the dissatisfactions of everyday life. He guides us in contemplating impermanence, the present moment, and the ungraspable nature of past and future. He discusses time as part of our inner being, made manifest through constant change in ourselves and our surroundings. And these ideas are by no means metaphysical abstractions: they can be directly perceived by any of us through meditation."

About Dainin Katagiri

He later joined Shunryu Suzuki Roshi at the San Francisco Zen Center and taught there until Suzuki Roshi s death in 1971. He was then invited to form a new Zen center in Minneapolis, which, in addition to a monastery in the countryside of Minnesota, he oversaw until his death in 1990. He left behind a legacy of recorded teachings and twelve Dharma heirs. Katagiri is the author of several books, including "Returning to Silence" and "You Have to Say Something.""
