First up, there will be a Zazen Class at the Hill Street Center in Santa Monica tomorrow (Sat. Oct. 7, 2006) morning. Details are to your right at the link that says “Weekly Zazen Classes.”
Today I’m going to go record a commentary track for the DVD of “Zen Noir.” The DVD is supposed to be out in November, I think. I’ll let you know when I know.
I was thinking about my last post. I hope I didn’t come off sounding too evangelical. And if you think I did, too bad. I’ve seen the whole “Bodhisattva Vow” thing, which says “living beings are numberless, I vow to save them all,” being used as an excuse for so-called Buddhists to go out and try to convert people. That’s just stupid. There’s a rule of thumb, which I’m sure I’ve quoted here before, that says you should never answer any question about Buddhism unless the questioner asks three times. What that means is you shouldn’t waste time talking about Buddhism to people who aren’t really interested in it. There’s just no point in doing so.
I oughta write more on this subject, but I gotta get to the recording studio. Maybe next time…
