Roshi offers the soothing and steadying influence of Zazen as an antidote to these days of troubling news.
In this Zazenkai talk, Kaku Hoshi looks into the question of meaning. Starting out with a Zen story from “Transmission of the Light,” Kaku then looks into his own past and sees how his own search for meaning has lead him to life as priest and Zen student.
