The Mountains and Rivers Order (MRO) is a Western Zen Buddhist lineage established by the late John Daido Loori Roshi and dedicated to sharing the dharma as it has been passed down, generation to generation, since the time of Shakyamuni Buddha. Zen Mountain Monastery, the main house of the Mountains and Rivers Order, is one of the West’s most respected Zen Buddhist monasteries and training centers. Nestled in New York’s beautiful Catskill Mountains, the Monastery draws its strength from the ancient tradition of Buddhist monasticism. Since 1980, the Monastery has offered spiritual practitioners traditional and innovative ways to engage the dharma through a wide range of retreats and residential programs that unfold within the context of authentic, full-time Zen monastic training. The Zen Center of New York City: Fire Lotus Temple is the city branch of Zen Mountain Monastery. Supporting home practitioners in the metropolitan area, ZCNYC offers varied practice opportunities within the Eight Gates training matrix.

The master’s tools

A thoughtful talk about the motivation of honesty, and yet I am reminded, “the masters tools will never dismantle the masters house. “ - Audrey Lord 1979.

Thank you for your teaching.

Zen mind at its sharpest.

Originally began studying / sitting with Roshi Robert Kennedy, SJ in Jersey City, also in the lineage of Maezumi Roshi. I’ve been sitting on my own for a long time due to the logistics of getting to community and recently stumbled upon this podcast. You have so helped deepen my practice with your penetrating discussions and nuanced awareness and inclusion of social justice issues. What a treasure you offer us all near and far. Thank you! Often walking and sitting with you all, Ed Majian.

I am new to the concept of practice and want to learn more but I don't like being preached politics during the talks
