The picture here and the one below is of the same fellow. Claude as a young warrior in Vietnam and AnShin as a Zen priest. Between these snaps of frozen time there's an amazing story. The torment of childhood and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. Healing. Self-realization.

culture-and-society - Fri, 20 Nov 2009 20:20:32
It's amazing how vast a concept Zen has become. What used to be a Japanese Buddhist term has morphed into this collection of pop consciousness. At the very least you'll find silly zen, serious zen, trendy zen, zen cool, zen chic, uber zen, tasty zen zen. Zanny Zen.
