Jay Chikyo Weik offers a presentation entitled, "Obstacles to Practice," given at the Toledo Zen Center on December 2, 2007.

"Typically, what are taught as being the primary challenges or the main difficulties have to do with the six realms. In the center of those realms, there are three poisons that are providing the gravity that's holding these beings in these various realms of suffering. What those three poisons are called are Greed, Anger, and Ignorance."

Thank you so very much for these podcasts. Through them, I feel that my practice has been energized and focused. This podcast in particular deeply resonated with me on putting certain qualities I see in others and myself \\\"through the grinder\\\" in order to transform it into \\\"bodhidust.\\\"

Thank you thank you. Namaste.
