Edgar,
 
I share your mind. With Suzuki, you don't have to take precautions. But beware 
of Bill: prepare to 'take a beating' literally.
 
Regards,
Anthony

Bob,


D. T. Suzuki's books are to my mind the best exposition of the underlying 
philosophy of Zen. As to living Zen, you may well find more of that here in 
this group.


Best,
Edgar

Hi everyone
 
My name is Bob Therriault and I am new to this group and Zen. I am also new to 
meditation. I am 62 and retired from the VA Hospital here in Albany, NY..  
There is no Zen Center here so I will be depending on this group to guide me in 
my practice. I have ordered books by D T Suzuki which I intend on reading. Do 
you suggest I practice meditation alone or with a group. There is a group with 
the UU church.

Bob,

Welcome to Zen Forum!

Books about zen are not high on my list, although I have read a lot of them 
over the years.  D.T. Suzuki presents a very scholarly view of Buddhism, not so 
much Zen Buddhism, but his books are considered classics in the field.

I always recommend sitting with groups as opposed to sitting alone, especially 
in the beginning of your practice.  Is the group you mentioned a zen group, or 
just a meditation group?  There are lots of different types of meditation so 
don't just assume they are teaching and practicing zen meditation (Japanese 
word is 'zazen').

Zazen itself is very easy to learn.  There's really not much to it.  There are 
a lot of websites that give instructions and there have been postings on this 
forum that have detailed instructions.

Bon Voyage!  ...Bill!

[Zen] Hi New to the Group

2007-01-22 Thread chris
Hello. I may have been a member here before, but I can't remember. I 
just started practicing Zazen again. I practiced everyday for about 3 
years and then off and on for the last two. I'm still not sure exactly 
what I'm doing. I realize that posture is very important and I had a 
question about that. In Zen Mind, Beginners Mind it says that you 
should push the head up and the abdomen down as if one were supporting 
the sky, but when I do this it feels all wrong. I guess what my 
question is in Zazen is it right to hold onself in a certain posture?

thanks,

Chris
