Genpo Roshi on Why We Suffer

(to watch bigger screen click on title)

Zen Master D. Genpo Merzel is a revolutionary in the tradition of the old Zen Masters who so embodied Buddhist teaching that they were able to revitalize and transform it for their own day and age. As the Buddha Dharma moved from India to China to Japan and other Asian cultures, it found unique expression in each culture that made its fundamental teachings resonate for a new time and place. Genpo Roshi is working to transmit the essence of the Buddha’s teachings in a way that is readily accessible to Westerners and relevant to our everyday life.

The core of Genpo Roshi’s teaching is the unshakable and contagious certainty that every one of us, regardless of our socioeconomic, cultural or religious background, can instantly awaken to our true nature, like the great masters of old — like the historical Buddha himself, whose essential teaching was nothing less than this. This experience helps us shed anxiety and fear and learn to live more purposeful, compassionate and joyful lives. Roshi combines Zen tradition with the insights of such visionary western figures as Carl Jung, Fritz Perls, and Hal Stone, enabling virtually anyone to realize their true nature, a realization they can further deepen through meditation.

  2. Thank you – I have found that if I resist anything then I put myself in a state of suffering – it`s a very strange experience to be in pain yet not suffer because of it. My `wanting` can also cause me to suffer,so I am causing my own suffering.
    So much is written on this subject that it seems very complex yet also simple.

    How can not caring help you succeed in life? What does he mean by he’s hard at it and also not hard at it?
