Zen Moments

Postby Zen Moments » Wed Mar 11, 2009 4:25 pm

Hello from Zen Moments - a collection of beautiful and inspiring true stories.

Zen Moments are the small things that make a huge difference…

Zen Moments happen at times when we stop pushing to try to get somewhere else, when we open our hearts and minds to the present moment, to that which is right in front of us…

Zen Moments are the moments of magic, when extraordinary awareness meets ordinary situations - moments of looking with fresh eyes…

Such moments can be beautiful, inspiring, transforming, haunting, and can linger with us long after they have passed.

We hope you will find beauty and inspiration in these pages: http://www.zenmoments.org/

Hi Alan,

Thanks for joining us. :smile:

Best wishes,
Dhammanando Bhikkhu
The Great Sage did thus proclaim
With many a diverse chosen name
Vipassanā stilled and purified,
That to Emergence is allied.

Saṃsāra-cycle’s swamp of pain
Is vast and terrible; a man
Wisely should strive as best he can,
If he would this Emergence gain.
(Visuddhimagga XXI)

This offering maybe right, or wrong, but it is one, the other, both, or neither!

Welcome! And feel free to post some stories from zen moments here. Our "personal experience corner" could use some more contributions. :smile:
