‘I never really thought that if I practice Zen I would somehow be perfect. You know, in Japan, everybody knows that all of the teachers are regular people, or broken people, rather than some sort of enlightened beings sitting on a cloud.’ (from Lion’s Roar)

I found this article, and this notion, to be a helppful reminder of the kinds of traps that we can fall into with spiritual practice, whichever tradition we find ourselves in.

One thought on “Enkyo O’Hara

  1. Somehow being human includes frailty and error along with beauty and light. The two seem mutually exclusive yet we embody both.
