Shasta Abbey in Northern California was founded 50 years ago by Rev. Master Jiyu Kennett. Rev. Master Haryo the Head of the religious Order I am a member of, the Order of Buddhist Contemplatives, gave a talk on Sunday. It is full of remembrances of his time training at Shasta Abbey and so rich with his personal insight and teaching.
With bows of gratitude for Rev. Master Jiyu and her steadfast ‘going on, always going on’ teaching she would frequently repeat. Deceptively simple yet at the very heart of our practice. The exercising of faith I’d say.
