But Zen isn't really any of those things--it's something that anyone can practice anytime and anywhere. Zen monk Lawrence Grecco discusses what the true purpose of Zen is during a dharma talk he gave at a weekend retreat held at the Interdependence Project in New York City.

The Bodhisattva Ideal

Mahayana Buddhism is greatly characterized by the bodhisattva ideal. This approach to Buddhist practice stresses the importance of not only attaining enlightenment for ourselves, but also striving to help all other beings to do the same. This dharma talk by Lawrence Grecco discusses how the bodhisattva ideal came into being, what it really means, and how it can inform our practice.

The Importance of Intention

We always have an intention operating in our minds whether we're aware of it or not. Learning how to more consciously set an intention can help us control our karma rather than allowing it to control us through mental habit energy. Lawrence Grecco discusses the importance of keeping a strong intention, and how the ancient art of gatha writing can be utilized to help us do this in a very clear and simple way.
