ICICIPRULI has recently corrected from its lifetime highs towards the previous swing high zone from where the momentum seems to reverse at the higher side.

Osho Krishan | Mumbai Last Updated at May 28, 2021 09:08 IST

BUY HDFC LIFE | TARGET: Rs 704 | STOP LOSS: Rs 635

HDFCLIFE has been consolidating in a narrow range near its 200 DEMA from the last couple of trading sessions and at the same time has managed to sustain above its previous swing low. Even the 200 DEMA and the previous trend-line breakout coincide near the 650 zone suggesting it to be a strong support zone and any sustenance above the same could be utilized to accumulate the counter from short to medium-term view.

BUY SYNGENE INTERNATIONAL LTD | TARGET: Rs 640 | STOP LOSS: Rs 575

SYNGENE has witnessed a significant trend-line breakout in the last trading session which was being backed by robust volumes, confirming the bullish stance in the counter. In the present scenario, depending on the price extension parameter, the stock is looking lucrative from the risk-reward ratio. And even on the oscillator front, the 14 period RSI has witnessed a positive crossover affirming the bullish view from a short to medium-term perspective.

BUY L&T INFOTECH LTD | TARGET: Rs 4,260 | STOP LOSS: Rs 3,700

LTI has reversed its trend from the previous swing low and is currently placed well above all its major moving averages on the daily chart. The 14 period RSI has witnessed a rounding bottom pattern with a positive crossover on the daily time frame indicating the stock to surge higher in the coming future. Also, the stock price has breached the sloping trend-line and has headed northwards on the back of increased traded volumes in recent time, affirming a bullish stance in the counter.

Hes among the biggest celebrity gurus. And he wants to craft your destiny – The Sydney Morning Herald

Posted: at 1:49 am


without comments

When I spoke with Sadhguru he was in a camper van in El Paso, Texas, trucking around the United States on his book tour. I was instantly relieved. This was a long way from Osho, the Rolls Royce guru or Bikram with his fleet of Bentleys.

The humility of it made me excuse moments where the book goes beyond the limitations of my ordinary Western brain, like when he writes about sitting in a cave and perceiving the energy of a dead monk whose left leg was amputated nineteen hundred years earlier.

So, I suspended my disbelief and listened as he explained that karma is often misunderstood, especially in the Western world.

For example, we often talk about good karma and bad karma, as if theres someone sitting on their throne in the sky pointing their finger at each of the 7.8 billion of us and doling out rewards or punishments for our thoughts and actions.

People dumb it down to a simple reward and punishment But karma is neither good nor bad, Sadhguru says. Karma is the residual impressions of all the actions we perform, physically, mentally, emotionally and energetically.

From the moment we are born till this moment, he explains, all that we have seen, all that we have heard, every thought or emotion we have experienced and action we have performed or not performed inaction matters too has a consequence on the person that we have become.

The person that we are is also the result of our connection to one another, to the world around us and to our history as humans.

If you ate what a parrot eats for the next 10 years, would you become a parrot? The evolutionary memory will make sure you stay a human being no matter what crazy thing you do, he says. Similarly my physical structure is my genetic memory. You might have forgotten what your great, great, great grandmother looked like but her nose might be sitting on your face. Your body remembers.

From the perspective of karma, this means that the outcomes in our lives are the consequence of our own behaviours, the behaviours of those around us and of those who have come before us. Despite this, we can learn to control one significant aspect of our karma from this point onwards.

What the world throws at us is not always our choice, what we make of it is 100 per cent our choice... So this is the karma.

Karma by Sadhguru

The quality of our life is not determined by what we have[it is] determined by how we experience it This choice every human being has at every moment of their life.

His book aims to help us mortals choose a more joyful inner landscape regardless of our circumstance. He remains joyful despite 15 to 20 people he knows very well dying each day as a result of the pandemic ravaging India.

If you want to become part of the solution, you dont succumb to the misery do you want to infect the world with your misery or with your joy?

Simplistic as this may seem and he acknowledges he hasnt always been blissful, but spent many years under a huge black cloud of anger at all the injustice in the world intention matters and the concept of karma captures this, according to Sadhguru.

Dr Khalsa, a researcher in mind-body medicine, agrees.

We dont have a term in the West for that, Khalsa says. If you drive a Hummer youre polluting the atmosphere. Ultimately thats going to come back and hurt you or your ancestors. It happens on global levels and it happens on personal levels.

He adds: Its become part of parlance in the West. I think the West has adopted a number of constructs from other cultures which are now part of Western dialogue.

The term guru is another one of these somebody is a fashion guru, a beauty guru or a guru of the stockmarket.

The Indian term originally referred to someone who is a spiritual teacher or a master, but Khalsa points out anyone can call themselves a guru.

Theres no academy, theres no registry, theres no government agency that determines who is a guru. Ive seen people who suddenly decide that they want to call themselves a guru and Im saying Hey, wait a minute?

Allwell says there are a lot of false gurus out there.

There are also gurus who started out from a pure place and as they become more powerful things change, she adds, suggesting choose your guru wisely.

But, she believes Sadhguru is the real deal, a sentiment echoed by Khalsa who says he is considered by many as bonafide.

Sadhguru insists he is not part of the guru club: Misuse and corruption are in every industry there are bad police, bad journalists, bad politicians, there are unfortunately bad gurus too.

An action taken 24 years ago however has had lasting karmic consequences, complicating the reputation of this guru too.

In 1997, Sadhguru was accused by his father-in-law of murdering his 33-year-old wife Vijaykumari, mother of his then-7-year-old daughter. The accusation came after Vijaykumaris body was cremated before her father arrived to say goodbye. To complicate matters, Sadhguru said her death was the result of mahasamadhi during meditation.

Theres no academy, theres no registry, theres no government agency that determines who is a guru. Ive seen people who suddenly decide that they want to call themselves a guru and Im saying Hey, wait a minute?

Mahasamadhithe coveted goal of many a spiritual seeker [is] a practice where accomplished yogis with mastery over their life process consciously choose to exit their physical body at an auspicious time, Sadhguru wrote in an email after our interview.

The police report, which dismissed the case, said a doctor present at the time of death noted Vijaykumari most likely died of a heart attack.

Khalsa explains mahasamadhi is a common term used in India and is based on the belief that yogis can self-regulate internal states, controlling their metabolic rate and, through practice, choose to leave their physical bodies at will to merge with the infinite.

Samadhi the term used for transcendence is a real, biological state that can be induced through contemplative practices like meditation, Harvard Medical Schools Khalsa says, and mahasamadhi is seen as the next step. Whether someone chooses to die or died because their body gave out you cant validate that in anyone.

Good guru, bad guru, good karma, bad karma? It is as hard to reduce the human as it is the concepts.

Khalsa says Sadhguru remains one of the three biggest gurus in India and in the world and seems copasetic, but remains human.

Oftentimes you see a guru say dont worship me, worship what I teach because what I teach is coming from that state of consciousness... Im a human being and Im subject to my own frailties and weaknesses so dont follow me as a person, follow the teachings, Khalsa says. Its very complicated to be a human being.

And this is what Sadhguru, in his book, suggests. I am often asked what my message is as a guru, he writes. It amuses me because I have none. I tell people: You are not studying with me. I have nothing to teach. I want you to get lost!

Get lost how? Into ourselves, into the present moment, into the experience of being human because we are the only ones who can free ourselves from the karma of our past.

The past you cannot change, the present is to be experienced, and the future has to be crafted, he says. People are... trying to change the past in this effort of trying to change something that you cannot change, the possibility of experiencing the present moment is gone and the possibility of creating your future is also gone in many ways when I say my life is my karma, I am saying my life is my making.

The books that shaped me: Andi Osho – goodhousekeeping.com

Posted: February 10, 2021 at 9:49 pm


without comments

Welcome to 'The books that shaped me' - a Good Housekeeping series in which authors talk us through the reads that stand out for them. This week, we're hearing from Andi Osho, a writer, actor, stand up comedian and film maker. She's appeared in shows including I May Destroy You, Holby, Curfew and Death In Paradise. Her debut novel, Asking For A Friend, is out now.

Like with most people, books were my escape. From childhood right into my 20s I devoured fiction - from all genres including fantasy, comedy, romance - I couldnt get enough. Then I went through a phase of consuming all and every self-help book going. At that point, books became transformative, helping me understand myself and the things I was going through. Then I got very into non-fiction and learning about society through the eyes of people much wiser and worldly than me.

More recently, having ventured into writing myself, Ive circled back and started enjoying fiction again. Its reassuringly familiar but at the same time refreshing, especially given the diversity of voices we now have access to. So the impact books have had on me has continually evolved as Ive got older. Im wondering whats next? I sense a lot of gardening books as soon as I get my own garden!

Bears in the Night by Jan and Stan Berenstain

5.35

As a kid there was one book I read time and time again: Bears In the Night by Stan and Jan Berenstain. It's so simple it only has 24 (different) words apparently and is simply about a group of bear cubs who steal out of their beds one night without their mother knowing a thing about it.

As a kid, I was always quite spirited and free-willed. I wanted to do things on my own and have my own way a lot of the time, much to my mothers frustration so a story about little rascals making this midnight bid for freedom is right up my street.

But this book is also a metaphor about the relationship between kids and the safety our parents bring. The bears venture out into the world but the minute they get scared, they dont scatter, or fight, they go straight back to the safety of home. Of mama. Isnt that what we all do? I bought this for my niece. Shes a bit like I was as a kid so I hope she enjoys this book as much as I did.

Asterix and The Roman Agent by R Goscinny and A Uderzo

6.35

I really, really wanted my choice to be highbrow and "important" but the truth is one of my all-time faves is from the Asterix The Gaul series by R Goscinny and A Uderzo. In particular, I love Asterix and The Roman Agent. Even now, the memory of it still makes me smile.

The basic premise is that the Romans have made several failed attempts to conquer the Gauls and in this one, they despatch their new secret weapon, this weedy, little fella whose skill is disseminating lies. The Romans hope this will cause the Gauls to turn on each other.

Ive read this story on multiple occasions and cried from laughter every time. But even though superficially, the series seems like just an amusing David and Goliath story, thematically, its also about friendship, community and in this instance, trust. I also love Uderzo, the illustrator, and his use of the form in the storytelling. For example, when this secret agent speaks, his speech bubble appears in increasingly vivid shades of green, the more egregious his lies become which for some reason, works brilliantly on the page and is hilarious. This particular story also speaks to modern politics and how, often, its not violence that controls or conquers the people but the dissemination of lies.

Big Magic by Elizabeth Gilbert

7.38

I love Big Magic by Elizabeth Gilbert because she has such a light yet deep approach to being a creative. Some books on the same topic can be quite worthy and serious but Big Magic is funny and frank, while being a really substantial read.

As someone who loves discussing creativity and has even started a podcast on the subject, I would love to have created this wonderful piece. I aspire to Gilberts level of honesty and authenticity in her work. Whether shes documenting her personal experiences, as in Eat, Pray, Love or sharing insights on her creative processes, shes always so real. Thats my goal with my work, to bring that same truth to it all but also that humour, be it in my books, my podcast or my acting.

Time Management for System Administrators by Thomas A Limoncelli

19.91

Rich Dad Poor Dad by Robert T Kiyosaki

11.91

Am I allowed two? The Time Management System by Thomas A Limoncelli and Rich Dad, Poor Dad by Robert T Kiyosaki. These two books completely changed my relationship with time and money and they are two areas in life that so many of us struggle with.

In my situation, I was squandering both but the moment I read these books, coincidentally around the same time, my attitude, and ultimately my life, changed.

Often, people dont realise how much theyre haemorrhaging both these precious assets. I certainly didnt but these books have the power to recalibrate our outlooks. Both were recommended to me by different people and Im infinitely grateful - though I dont think they realise the impact they had.

The Prophet by Kaglil Gibran

The Prophet by Kahlil Gibran was lent to me by a friend and it could not have come at a better time. Perhaps they sensed I needed this. I remember reading it and being blown away by the countless insights and the wisdom packed into this tiny book.

Sometimes, when things get too much, a book that offers a bigger context to experience the world in can really shift our mood. My late 20s were quite a troubled time. I experienced my first bout of depression - at one point I was having constant nightmares and was feeling the fallout from childhood experiences - so this book came at just the right time to help calm my soul. And because its broken down into topics (marriage, love, time, death religion etc) its very dip-in-and-out-able, which I still do from time to time.

The Light Fantastic by Terry Pratchett

6.95

The Light Fantastic from the Discworld series by Terry Pratchett is pure magic. Im not even sure what prompted me to dive into these books but I loved them from the beginning. The Light Fantastic is so funny, its brimming with great characters and because its set in a fantasy world, is perfect escapism. I particularly loved Terry Pratchetts brilliant way of parodying our myths and mythology, our history and society, taking a playful swipe at a different aspect in each book.

Alongside that, what I ultimately loved about The Light Fantastic was the friendship between the two main characters. It was difficult and beautiful. Though I cried tears of laughter as I read this book, by the end I was so moved. Wow. I think I might have to read it again! In life, friendships are some of our most significant relationships and are also a big part of my book, Asking For A Friend. That could be why I love The Light Fantastic so much.

Buhari: Kachikwus Books Attest to Our Governments Transparency in Oil Sector – THISDAY Newspapers

Posted: at 9:49 pm


without comments

* Ex-minister, a gift to us all, says Osinbajo

President Muhammadu Buhari has said the four books recently published and presented by his former Minister of State for Petroleum Resources, Dr. Emmanuel Ibe Kachikwu, attested to details of his administrations effort at ensuring transparency in the oil sector of the economy.

Buhari spoke during the virtual public presentation of the books, even as Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo, who gave a closing remark, described Kachikwu as a gift to us all.

Anchored by Richmond Osuji, the four books presented Thursday were: Nigeria Petroleum Industry: 2015 to the Future; Gas Development in Nigeria: Legal and Policy Framework; Nigerian Foreign Investment Law and Policy; and Nigerian Law of Contract: Study Companion.

Harping on the essence of Kachikwus new initiatives, Buhari said the books discuss the industry through the policy framework of his administration, adding that when he assumed office in 2015, the oil sector was in dire straits.

According to him, the oil industry at the time he assumed office was obviously in need of reform if it must attract growth hence, the responsibility to act fast and aggressively rested squarely on the shoulders of his government.

He, therefore, contended that the current transparency in the Nigeria National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) was a function of the administrations conscious decision to combat corruption in the all-important sector of which he has remained the substantive minister.

Buhari, however, said he was confident that the books would give insight into the policy framework and operations of the industry.

On his part, Osinbajo, who largely alluded to his personal relationship with the former minister especially, that he had always been at each of his book launches, the last of which he predicted that he had to present more books at once in his next effort, described Kachikwu as a prolific writer, with interest in romance publishing.

Rounding off after describing him as a gift to us all, Osinbajo added: One day, it would be safe to write your memoires.

In their goodwill messages, former Minister of Defence, T. Y. Danjuma, noted that Kachikwus intellectual pedigree was well known to all from his days at Mobil, adding that he was not surprised that as a true scholar, he took time off to author the four books for posterity.

Kachikwus successor as minister, Timipre Sylva, also held the view that having worked closely with the president to achieve so much in the petroleum industry, the former ministers policies remained at the foundation of their current work in the industry.

Others, who delivered goodwill messages included the Secretary General of the Organisation of Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC), Sanusi Barkindo; Minister of Mines and Hydrocarbon in Equatorial Guinea, Gabriel Obiang Lima; and Secretary General of Africa Petroleum Producers Organisation, Omar Farouk.

Earlier in his opening remarks, Kachikwu, while welcoming everyone to the virtual book launch, noted that the whole idea was that people, who came after him, could borrow from his wealth of experience through documentation and be guided by some of the efforts of his leadership.

Also, in his vote of thanks, Kachikwu reiterated that the core idea behind the books was to help situate the role of policy and experience in assisting with research in the foreseeable future.

However, while the book, Nigerian Petroleum Industry From 2015 to the Future was reviewed by Dr. Dayo Ayoade and presented by Barkindo, the book on Gas Development in Nigeria: Legal and Policy Framework was reviewed by Dr. Peter Oniemola and presented by Mr. Abdulrasaq Isa.

Subsequently, the book on Nigerian Foreign Investment Law and Policy was reviewed by Dr. Toyin Adejonwo Osho and presented by Mr. Austin Avuru.

In the same breath, the book, Nigerian Law of Contract: Study Companion was reviewed by Dr. Kemi Omotubora and presented by the Edo State Governor, Godwin Obaseki.

3 series to watch in a weekend on Netflix – Inspired Traveler

Posted: at 9:49 pm

Night Stalker (foto: Netflix) / Wild Wild Country (foto: Netflix) / Blown Away (foto: Netflix)

Saturday and Sunday are the ideal days to relax in bed or on the couch with something delicious to eat and enjoy a series in Netflix. If that is your plan, we have three unmissable recommendations to make: a list of ideal series to marathon and finish on the same weekend.

This Netflix documentary stars Richard Ramirez, known as The Night Stalker (the night prowler), who committed multiple crimes, rapes and robberies.

During the four chapters that compose it, this miniseries tells how one of the greatest criminals in the history of the United States was persecuted and brought to justice after accumulating a large list of victims: men, women and children, aged between six and 82 years old, who came from different neighborhoods, racial origins and socioeconomic levels, which puzzled the researchers since they seemed isolated events because there was no pattern.

Know more about Night stalker in this note.

Osho is a guru from India, a speaker who toured his native place expanding his philosophy, determined, years later, to settle in the Oregon desert to proclaim his ideas. It is there that he established, in 1981, his own cult: the Rajnishe movement.

However, once in the United States, their ideology and extreme practices conflict with the local people, especially after the events of 1984, when they launched the first bioterrorist attack in which more than seven hundred people contracted salmonella. To this hostility are added other values such as massive attacks or incitement to rape.

In this Netflix documentary series we meet three members of the cult: Sheela, Jane and George, and figures who try to stop the Rajneesh. Likewise, a divided locality is explored from the perspective of xenophobia and politics: the cunning, intelligent, and amoral members of the group as opposed to the small-town ranchers. These themes are joined by other striking elements such as free love, dark plans and luxury cars.

In addition, all this cocktail of ideas is documented with archive images taken from old local news or from videos that the cult itself recorded.

In this reality show, ten artists specializing in blown glass compete to achieve the most amazing pieces, while showing off their techniques and experience in the field to impress the judges.

As in any competition, alliances, rivalries will arise and there will be a lot of pressure every minute, since whoever stays up until the end will be deserving of the juicy sum of $ 60,000.

The banality of good morning posts and our positivity fixation – Mint

Posted: November 10, 2020 at 12:56 am


without comments

I woke up on the morning of 5 November to a pleasant surprise on Whats-App. There were less than 10 good morning" messages with pictures of sunrises (or sunsets, who can tell?) accompanied by pious banalities. Most of the posts were on the United States presidential election results. At least on one day of the year, I had been spared the task of scrolling through 50 platitudes and deleting them.

The success we see in someone else is the proof that it is possible for us too!" My pain may be the reason for someone elses laugh. But my laugh must never be the reason for somebodys pain" (this one with a Charlie Chaplin picture). May the shells on the beach remind you that treasures arrive every day in the form of simple things!" There is always another chance for everything in life. But the fact is there is no chance of another life." Be an encourager. The world has plenty of critics already." Yesterday is the memory we made for today. So make today a good day to remember tomorrow."

The ones involving God particularly get my goat. God loves you. He will be there for you. He will make way for you. He will wipe away your tears. He will be your best friend. Have a wonderful day." God never takes a day off to love, to care, to keep us safe and guide us in every moment in our lives. May His presence be with you always." I am unsure about the grammar here. Shouldnt it be God never takes a day off from loving, caring. keeping us safe" and so on?

But even more irritating are the folks who reply to each and every such post. I mean, do you really have nothing better to do? Like watching cat videos, cutting your toenails, or pondering the deeply metaphysical question about why only that part of your back itches which you cant reach with your fingers? So one has to endure messages like: Thank you X for your wonderful message (various emojis here). You have a great day and the same to all my dear friends." What a lovely thought! We should all try to live by this principle." Or the most inane of all: What a bright message Y (emoji). You have a good weekend (emoji)." What is the point of sending these notes of appreciation? What purpose do they serve? Do the persons posting these pointless thank-yous get actually inspired and decide to spend the rest of their lives following these noble tenets? Or do they just want to be popular, acknowledging mass messages? Or are their limbs so flexible that their fingers can reach every part of their backs?

I have met a few people in my life who were great devotees of the Dale Carnegie philosophy of self-improvement and interpersonal skills (essentially salesmanship), who tried to make friends" with any stranger they met, and I dont want to see them again. Their constant and often forced good cheer was unbearable. Why this desperate need for everyone to like you?

However, I do grudgingly admire the people who send these good morning messages. These are disciplined human beings. Wake up every day (this species, I have found, invariably gets out of bed at dawn or even before that), do your ablutions and whatever else you domorning walk, jog, Surya namaskarand then search the net for an inspirational quote, keeping in mind not to repeat yourself or anything others may have posted. Many of them may also be selecting a quote, then a picture, and laying that quote out on the picture in what they think is a fitting and aesthetic manner. Following this routine for years surely improves memory and keeps Alzheimers at bay. These people must also be big consumers of the motivational industry and are contributing billions of dollars to the global economy. Whether this improves ones aptitude in anything, though, is open to doubt.

The human impulse driving these good morning messages, one assumes, is the pressure that many people feel to stay positive all the time. But why should we be that way? From Gautam Buddha to Osho to modern psychologists, many have seen the relentless pursuit of positive thinking as, at best, unnecessary and, at worst, harmful. Osho went so far as to say: The philosophy of positive thinking means being untruthful; it means being dishonest. It means seeing a certain thing and yet denying what you have seen; it means deceiving yourself and others."

All of us have a subconscious self, and denying the negative feelings down there gets us nowhere. This renders our smiles and attitudes hypocritical and in the end stresses us out. There is nothing wrong in feeling low for a while, or seeing a dark cloud without a silver lining. Maybe what we need is to attack that cloud methodically, calmly, rationally, removing ones personality from the process, and not pointlessly stay positive", or trust in the ineffable workings of the universe.

There is surely nothing wrong with feeling angry or disappointed, or to express these feelings, at least for us ordinary souls who have not achieved enlightenment. The challenge is to recognize our inner demons and overcome them in their dark lairs, than in believing in the power of a five-step positive-thinking formula. That is deluding ourselves, which is dangerous. For, one day the levee may just break.

Reflections on Zen Practice Now and What Comes Next – Patheos

Posted: at 12:56 am


without comments

Now that were moving past the 2020 election and into the transitional period, it seems like a good time for personal reflections about Zen teaching. So in this post, Ill share what Ive been up to since the pandemic struck with my Zen teaching venues, Nebraska Zen Center(NZC) and the Vine of Obstacles: Online Support for Zen Training. Ill also make some connections with the larger context of the Zen Center model, consider where Id like to go from here, and offer one way to express the purpose of our training both for students and for me, one of the teachers.

First, a little background. I started the Vine in early 2013 in response to requests from nonlocal students that Id connected with through this blog, Wild Fox Zen. Together with an intrepid group of students, we developed a Moodle platform and began doing Zen study with online courses and interactions among students via the Moodle forums.

In addition to the Vine, Ive been co-teaching with Tetsugan Osho at Nebraska Zen Center for the past four-and-a-half years. During this period, she has been much more involved with the day-to-day, nitty-gritty of running the temple. With the advent of the pandemic, NZC began a period of rapid adaptation. Tetsugan Osho shifted to co-teaching with me on the Vine, and most NZC students have moved to studying on the Vine as well.Merging, of course, has gone both ways. The Vine has also merged with NZC in a commendably smooth manner.

The two entities are now almost indistinguishable. And we expect this transformation to continue over the next year as the pandemic, tragically, appears now to be on the way to becoming more serious, and then might wind down, perhaps in the second and third quarters of 2021. This will allow for a new Zen normal to be established which will include a strong online presence.

Its important to understand where weve been in order to appreciate the present and shape where we might go in the future. When Katagiri Roshi and other Zen pioneers established the Zen Center model in the 60s and 70s, it was more akin to martial arts training in Japan than to a Western church. Zen Centers were focused on intensive training, including zazen, study, and in some places, koan training as well. Most students were householders, but most were involved in daily training sessions at the dojo. Their practice was closely supervised by one of the founding teachers for example, Katagiri Roshi, Maezumi Roshi, or Chino Roshi.

During my thirteen years of training as a student in this model, I came to regard it as quasi-monastic. As the saying goes, we werent monks nor were we lay people. Like most other students, I usually worked a full time job, while also spending about twenty hours a week at the Zen Center not counting sesshin or practice periods at the monastery we were developing, Hkyji. This was more or less what was happening at most of the small number of other Zen Centers in the US, although some also had a residential component, and some, like us, were attempting to establish rural monasteries as well.

Let me insert a short note about monastic practice here. In my view, monastic practice is an enormously important experience for any Zen student. Notably, the monastic narrative runs deep in our tradition. My own monastic experiences at Hkyji and Bukkokuji where essential to my process. And I encourage anyone with life circumstances that allow it to dive into monastic practice. However, during the past 40 years, although there has been dramatic growth in the number of householder Zen students, the number of monastic practitioners has remained almost what it was in 1980. Why?

Most people that are interested in Zen practice now do not have life circumstances that allow for dropping everything and going up the mountain (unless they drop children, spouses, and careers as well) and so other forms practice are clearly necessary. Id like to see those forms of practice legitimized in order to tune down the impact that the monastic fantasy has on householder practitioners. That fantasy runs something like this: If only I was doing monastic practice, then I could sit in samadhi, experience kensh, live in peace and harmony.

Nevertheless, if youd like to hear some of my stories about my early period of my training in the old Zen Center modle, and some monastic ones too, check out this podcast from Corey Hess Zen Embodiment:

Although training in the old Zen Center model was excellent, it was difficult for students to take good care of their home lives, particularly for those with partners and children. The partners of Zen students who were engaged in this model often reported feeling like their partner was having an affair. Indeed, for many of us, it was like that our hearts were as divided as our time. I know mine was.

Since those early days, there has been a large and not-often discussed shift in what I think of as the Zen Center model, concomitant with the first generations of Westerners emerging as Zen teachers, and a dramatic increase in the number of Zen Centers. Simply put, many Zen Centers are now more like Christian churches than the early Zen training centers. Members attend a gathering at most once a week, practice in-between is spotty and largely unsupported, and that practice is often based on the Boomer philosophy of do whatever feels right for you.

In addition, there are now a plethora of resources available for practice advice, including books, websites, and social media, so that many students or perhaps members is a more fitting label now practice with minimal direct supervision from a teacher. Some members, of course, are more engaged in practice and volunteering, and there are usually circles of participation that extend from a core group of students outward to the casual visitor.

Granted, there is considerable variations to this model when we look at any particular group. What Im aiming for here is a general model and as such it may not fully represent what youve experienced in any one group. And as for what constitutes a fair general current Zen Center model, I imagine that opinions will vary.

Be that as it may, Im suggesting that just as the original Zen Center model took practice from the monastery and into the community, online practice takes another step. Practitioners homes become the temple. Their bodies become the stupa. Let me give an example with what were doing with the Vine.

It might not surprise you to hear that, in my view, the Vine is quite different than the current Zen Center model. One of the key differences is that we aspire for everyone involved to work together as a training group. What were doing on the Vine then is more like a school (with a small s we have no intention to start a School/Order), a Zen school focused on zazen, study, and engagement that comes with considerable connections with other practitioners and ongoing guidance and feedback from teachers.

In this way, the Vine is more like a late-70s-80s Zen Center than a church, although we embrace modern technology to allow for a much wider range of offerings than either.The intensiveness of the training, combined with the online format, allows students to do much of their work at home, and their sangha is always as close as their phones. This reduces the impact of the training on home life that was such a negative aspect of the early in-person Zen Center model described above.

In addition, the Vine is explicitly for people who want to godeeplyinto the work, and not so much for people who want to exploreifZen might be right for them, or for whom belongingness needs are paramount. We also arent primarily directed toward those interested in well-being. Theres nothing wrong with exploring, belonging, and well-being of course. And for some people, exploring, belonging, and well-being are enough. I have no argument with that. However, Tetsugan Osho and I, along with Ed Goshin, assistant teacher on the Vine, choose to focus our time and energy working with people who have already crossed the threshold into Zen, who have aroused the Way seeking mind, who have some sense of Great Doubt, and are ready to jump into Zen training in order to realize the ground of being.

For us, that training includes:

As we say,

The Vine is designed for those who are determined to awaken (kensh) and actualize the great matter of life and death (post-kensh training). And, who arent shy about it.

An important aspect of Vine training is participation in the forums. We use forums both for general discussions and as the basis of dharma study. The forums have become increasingly important over the years both as a place for students to receive peer support, and for teachers to give practice pointers to students based on how students are showing up. Through involvement in the forums, Vine students get to know much more about each others lives and practices than in the in-person communities that Ive been involved with, either as a teacher or a student. Students also receive at least as much guidance and feedback as students are likely to receive in in-person communities. Finally, although this guidance and feedback arises in an online context, it is much the same that students receive in in-person training.

Another difference between the Vine and the current Zen Center model is that the latter is based on membership contributions and the former is a tuition-based program. Offering this intensive householder training comes with a cost. In order to spend our time in this way, Tetsugan Osho and I have given up other occupations. But our landlord, grocery store, and utility companies havent given up being compensated for their services. So students pay a monthly tuition fee to access the training, although we sometimes make allowances for students who have limited financial means.

One consideration for me is that as I approach 65 years on this planet, Im aware that my teaching shelf life might be in the ten-year range. Given that limitation, it is important to me to continue the process I began with my upcoming book, The Record of Empty Hall: One Hundred Classic Koans (now available for preorder), that is, doing what I can to share some of the deep wealth of dharma resources of the Zen tradition, much of which has yet to be translated and made available in English. I estimate that less than ten percent of the Taish Tripitika has been translated. My next project is Going Through the Mysterys One Hundred Questions, but thats another story.

In terms of my teaching practice with the Vine and NZC, as I said above, I dont see us going back to the pre-pandemic world with a division between in-person and online groups. Rather, in the post-pandemic world, I see us going in the direction that we started when the Vine was created. That direction has only accelerated during the pandemic an emphasis on weekly online teacher-student meetings and ongoing study through the Vine Moodle, now supported by sessions like Open Zen, daily Zoom zazen, and online retreats.

The missing ingredient in our pandemic training is in-person seven-day sesshin, but well get those going again as soon as it is safe to do so. We also recommend solo retreats and have begun supporting students in solo retreats by offering guidance before, during (through practice meetings), and afterwards (debriefs can be an essential ingredient of these experiences).

Thanks to the recent changes, I have a renewed sense of what were doing and a longer-range vision of what well be offering, including a more clearly articulated and scaffolded curriculum of classic Zen texts. This curriculum entwines with zazen, engagement, and the koan curriculum as well.

For students, the intended outcome of these offerings is to provide a vehicle for them to settle deeply in the buddhadharma, so that they can live in peace and harmony in daily life, meet the self, other, and the details of this one great life with wholehearted intimacy and delight. In other words, to actualize the Great Vows. This requires a kensh as clear as the palm of the hand and years of post-kensh training. A good minimum amount of time for intensive householder training is ten years after kensh.

Weve verified through experience that what Ive outlined above is a reliable way for householders to accomplish the intended outcomes of Zen. The mix of online and in-person work provides a sufficient basis for students to go deeply into the Zen way, at least as well (and probably better, in my view) as the current in-person Zen Center model.

Finally, as with any Zen training endeavor, rites of passage are a vital aspect, rites that acknowledge the work thats been done receiving the precepts, ritually acknowledging the transformation thats taken place (analogous to home-leaver ordination), training as a senior student (analogous to head monk training), and perhaps dharma transmission, if an appropriate person or persons appear.

For me, these offerings are about transmittingto the next generation the dharma that Ive received from my teachers, especially Katagiri Rshi and James Myun Ford Rshi, toward whom I feel an unrequited debt of gratitude due to their compassionately sharing the dharma with me.
