Words of Umi

Post by crsnja » Thu Aug 21, 2014 1:22 am

Hi ! :)

Just wanted to share a link with words of Zen master "Umi". I stubbled upon this website by random googling and, to me, his words are so simple, truthful and beautiful at the same time.
In case of psychological crisis, I read a few of his satsangs and I'm almost immediatly out of the mind's turmoil and back to the sanity of presence !

I haven't found much more about him (well, not as a zen master anyway, as he seemed to be well known as a radio disc-jokay in the UK in the 60's!) and he actually died 2 years ago, but these words are a gem of wisdom :)

Thank you !

So unusual to read a forum without argument every two sentences ^_^

Hi crsnja,
We do have our share of arguments on the forum sometimes, but it's mostly in a good spirit. I am really enjoying Umi's words of wisdom. Very Zen. Thanks for sharing this.
