Roshi Pat Enkyo O'Hara

Dharma Talks

Ease and Joy in Your Practice and Life

According to Zen tradition, zazen, or meditation, is the dharma gate of ease and joy. In this retreat, Roshi Pat Enkyo O’Hara of New York City’s Village Zendo guides us to a place where we can find peace and restfulness in our practice. And from this place of ease, we can move on to the sense of joy that meditation can produce. Joy, Enkyo Roshi says, has “a leaping quality.” How many of us can claim to have this in our meditations and in our lives today?
