Zen for Beginners

Participants who joined the 3-weekend Zen for Beginners program held at the UP Bonsai Garden Meditation Center. October 15, 2017.

It is not the pointing finger.
It is the direction.
It is not the Path.
It is the Walking.
There are only two mistakes one can make along the road to truth; not going all the way, and not starting.
~Buddha
