Been Away/Bin Laden's death
I haven't posted anything because I have been working on the Grand Rapids Zen Center website. I will be working on it the rest of this week and will post a link to it here when it is finished. In the meantime, remember that our practice never stops. Everything we do is our practice. One question to consider is how you reacted and then responded to the death of Osama Bin Laden. Did you rejoice, feel good about it, experience some unease? How should a Buddhist respond? For those who have taken the precepts, how did your response square with the precept to honor all life? This is a challenging event for some. It might be worthwhile for us to take some time to explore our experience of his death.
