Coronavirus Times

This a rough time, especially for those of us living close to the edge economically. For those of us who can sustain an economic turndown for a while, it still isn't easy to be "sheltered in place.”
Zoketsu Norman Fischer, March 24, 2020

Statement on the protests

The bodhisattva vow commits us to caring for everyone’s short term and long term physical and spiritual benefit. Having done our best to cultivate this vow, and to continue to practice to strengthen and extend it, we feel deeply connected to the dramatic events now taking place in the streets of our cities.
Zoketsu Norman Fischer, June 2, 2020
