This book is for people who want to explore their spirituality more deeply. "When you walk in the rain you get wet", says Sensei. This is true be you Buddhist, Christian, Moslem, Jewish, male, female, Black, White, Japanese, German, a mother , a dentist, or whatever. The book is about spiritual practice in America today. Sensei Ogui teaches a down-to-earth form of Zen and Shin Buddhism. In these talks Sensei Ogui recounts stories and personal experiences with compassion and humour. He illustrates the way we human beings often disregard the aliveness of each moment and expresses with exceptional insight the Buddhist perspective on everyday life.
