How to navigate through life's roller coaster

Swamiji's practical tips on how to deal with negativity that happens in everyone's life - is just the need of the hour. There are so many things beyond our control - how do we control our reactions to keep our own sanity and that of others around us. Zen is the way. Though the word sounds exotic, Swamiji breaks it down to implementable reality.

Thank you Swamiji. Delighted to find this treasure all over again after attending the retreat on Zen in Bangalore.

A Must listen series

“A single flower blooms and throughout the world it’s spring. In Zen, the word flower often refers to the Buddha, who is said to have been born under flowers, to have become enlightened under flowers, to have transmitted the Dharma with a flower, and to have passed away under flowers.
