Buddha‘s last words as remembered by Ananda

Everything arises in conditions, Ananda, and those conditions are not separate from us. We need to embrace suffering, Ananda, embrace difficulty. We need to let go of grasping. We need to stop and experience the cessation of craving. And we need to act. We have to do something. The vibrancy of our life is not passive, it‘s active. We can be mindful of the body as just a body, soft and vulnerable, strong and vigilant, and we can be mindful of breathing as breathing, generous and impersonal. The more intimate we become with our body, the less personal it gets. We begin with our own perception: How are we perceiving the world?

Conditioned things break down, Ananda, treat the path with care. Everything is unreliable, breaking down, so take care of it. Take care of the path.

And what is the path?

It‘s not separate from us. It‘s not separate from our life. Take really good care of your life, because it‘s so fragile. Human beings are so fragile.

From a Dharma talk by Michael Stone (1974-2017)


the star lit night sky. the clear cold whirling water. the wind in the grasses. and the golden evening sun. constantly recall the present moment. and remember the body to soften and to breathe.

evening meditation july 13

„Life and death are of supreme importance
Time passes swiftly and opportunity is lost
Let us awaken, awaken
Do not squander your life“
– Evening Gatha as recited in various Zen communities.

We gather in silence for two blocks of sitting meditation underneath the trees and a group walk across the yard.

Bring a cushion and a mat to sit comfortably. Meeting point 19.30 at the big fountain in Sihlfeld C.

Free of charge. Please contact me if you have any questions.


Explore your inner landscape with curiosity. If you try to find someone else’s experience in your body, if you focus on how practice should feel or look like. You miss the jucy part.

the word „actually“ keeps us from being in relationship with the present moment.
love. letting go. compassion. are only real in a felt experience that is happening now.
