I'm really interested in practicing to become a Buddhist.
I was so happy when I came across your website. Especially when I found a black website on Buddhism.
I live in Little Rock, AR and I don't know of any place that offer information.
I'm just using what information that I can get from the internet.
Anyway I wanted to say thank you for your information on your website.

ZEN Buddhism has nothing in common with wishful thinking. As you go about your day thinking good thoughts, doing good works, and expecting good returns, there is a good reason for your expectations but it is not wishful thinking.
ZEN Buddhism is a realistic way of life, not wishful thinking. Is it unrealistic to treat people right, and expect right in return, if that does not happen, it is because of wishful thinking.
ZEN Buddhism teaches you, there is no good reason to treat people poorly. People may disappoint you because they are slaves to the ego, you are not; there is no good reason to treat people poorly.

It was nice today to see your webpage. I enjoy the expanse of the dharma. It would be nice to see discoveries of ancient Buddhist temples in africa. I am a Japanese Egyptian and I've visited Africa before but was only around Jewish people. I've heard many lectures on Buddhism but never one from a black person.

Zen Buddhism is naturally appealing, because there is no higher or lower nature, there is just nature, your nature; and it is pure.
Zen Buddhism is as appealing as the truth, because there is no higher or lower truth, there is just truth, your truth; the truth is if you chose to lower yourself, it is not your nature.
Zen Buddhism does not appeal to everyone, because some people think they have all the answers; like the ego. ZEN- what is the nature of a tree; it has no ego.

I sincerely appreciate all the work you do. As a Moor(African-American) it is very meaningful and enlightening to learn of the black origins of Buddhism. You have definitely put me on a path of deeper study into the topic. I am looking forward to deepening my study and practice of Nichiren Buddhism. I have been doing the Namu Myo Ho Ren Ge Kyo mantra daily. Love your work. Thank you!

Chan Zen Buddhism teaches us to question everything we fear. Why do we fear circumstances, things, people, or a places. Why don’t we realize that fear is a taught response, to the known and the unknown. Why are we taught to fear everything in life, right or wrong. The answers come from the same place as the questions; the mind.
Chan Zen Buddhism teaches you to question everything you are taught, even Chan Zen Buddhism. Why are so many people taught to fear letting go and holding on. Why are so many people taught to fear, being included, being excluded, being remembered or being forgotten. Why do people waste their time.
Chan Zen Buddhism teaches us, if we fear everything, we suffer. If we fear being responsible for everything, and we fear being irresponsible, that is suffering, or the limitations of thought; a taught response to everything known, and unknown. Fear is a taught response; just like suffering.
Chan Zen Buddhism teaches you to fear nothing. Circumstances change, things change, people change
