We are the lucky ones

The first line of Richard Dawkins’ book, Unweaving the Rainbow, is “We are going to die, and that makes us the lucky ones.” Without the miracle of birth we cannot have death. With every birth of a new person, idea, or plan comes the certainty of endings and of pain. Buddhist practice helps us recognize and work with this. Koshin Cain speaks at the Zen Center May 27, 2018.
