Jay Rinsen Weik gives a talk and leads discussion at the Toledo Zen Center on November 12, 2008.
"A man sitting in a mountain pass --
robed in clouds, tricked out in sunset's rose.
In his fingers a fragrant flower, to pass along,
but the road's so long and hard to climb!
In his mind: disappointment and doubt;
old as he is, he's accomplished nothing.
People laugh at him, call him a cripple,
yet he stands alone -- constant, untouched."
- Han Shan
