Hi everyone! I'm a Soto Zen Buddhist practicing in Omaha, NE under Rev. Nonin Chowaney at the Nebraska Zen Center. Good to be here.

Hi Dorion,

Welcome to the great, growing Dharma Wheel!

I practice Tibetan Buddhism, but I admire Dogen a great deal (although I'd be lying if I said that I understood most of what he wrote!).

I remember Nonin from E-Sangha. How is he doing these days?

May I continue to practice loving-kindness and compassion for sentient beings. May my friends and loved ones be free from suffering. May those who have hurt me also be free from suffering.

Hatred is like throwing cow dung at someone else. You get dirty first before throwing it to someone else.
