Good morning! Today we could see the beautiful full moon, the bright morning star, and will have the chance of compassionate rain.
We always have the chance to witness awakening, awakened truth, and awakened community, if we practice sitting, settling, and seeing them.
So, let us sit, settle into stability and serenity, and enjoy deep breathing – limitless life, liberation, love, and learning.
Osaka Roshi often said, “Naga-iki wa naga-iki
(長息は長生き：Long breathing is long life).”
Cf. Iki means breath and life（息・生き).
Prâna (Sanskrit)/pâna (Pali)(breath) also means life.
