The June 2016 edition of Myoju is now available.

This issue of Myoju is the first of several issues with the theme Cultivating Faith.

Shunryu Suzuki Roshi said, ‘You develop the composure’. In Zen Mind Beginners Mind, he talks about the histori- cal Buddha as being no different to us. When something happens, an emotional or unfortunate thing or something sad, the Buddha suffers emotionally, he experiences that kind of emotion. But his view of the world, of life, is stable and composed. How is this possible? It is faith. Not blind faith or faith coming from believing certain ideas. It is quite different. – Ekai Osho
