Jay Chikyo Weik offers a presentation on the Four Noble Truths. This presentation was given at the Toledo Zen Center on November 11, 2007.

"Buddhism itself is a really large worldwide religion; there are many different facets and approaches. The Buddha himself taught for something like forty years, and he taught different things to different groups of folks.... The kinds of things that we're going to cover today would be included by any of the schools of Buddhism that exist, and there are many. But they all have certain things in common, and basically they revolve around these truths."

Jay Chikyo Weik offers a talk entitled, "Living Zen: Awakening the Joyful Heart." This introductory talk was presented at the Toledo Zen Center on October 27, 2007.

"So then [the Buddha] sat under a tree, and started to actually practice what we now know as zazen, sitting zen. In that process, he made a radical shift in his way of perceiving himself and the universe and everything around him. It's that shift in perception that has come to be called enlightenment, or awakening."
