:woohoo:

Here's something I came acoss in my rambling about the net looking for "Zen" related items.

http://www.thezensite.com/ZenTeachings/ ... Rinzai.pdf

It is an English translation of "The Zen Teachings Of Rinzai (the Lin-Chi-Lu).
Please read the preface...it explains what it is and how it came about.
It is in PDF format and will load on to your computer when you go to the site. Don't worry it"s NOT loading a virus or such to your site.
At least it didn't on mine.
:smile:

For anyone who wants to read it, here is some info on Zen Master Bankei....and
Unborn!
or the Way of the Unborn as I guess Bankei would want it to be called.

http://www.enlightened-spirituality.org ... aster.html

Read it slowly, carefully, and think about it as you read.

I really need to get a copy of it. Over time I've seen it very consistently recommended. I certainly don't doubt its quality given what I know of Uchiyama Roshi.

Here are two beautiful zen garden live webcams,
from a small temple in Japan.
Keep in mind the time difference. If the screen looks black, it is night time in Japan.

http://www.teishoin.net/

To get to the the webcams, if you don't read Japanese,
go to the navigation box on the right of the screen,
follow the 5th an 6th little green buttons up from the bottom.
the text is followed by a 1 and a 2
those are the webcams.
Camera 1 is stationary.
camera 2 you can control from your own computer!!!

Thanks for this, PVS. That camera number 2 is in a great spot and controlling it is even more engaging than I expected.

If people are so inclined, they can also click "English Menu" on the top of the navigation box.
