Troubleshooting Zen Study & Practice

Our monthly Q&A podcasts where anyone can send in questions about the practice or the teachings of Buddhism, Zen, mindfulness, meditation (Zazen), or anything you feel is pertinent.

The Thinker by Rodin



Below you will find answers to questions about the study and practice of Zen. A Buddhist practice is interactive and these podcasts give you a chance to ask a question about Buddhist meditation or daily life practice (mindfulness) or about the teachings and application of them in our lives.

If you have a question that you would like ask then send it to:


30. I have read that Buddha was a man not a deity and yet some of the stories from the scriptures make him sound god-like. Who or what is he?

29: Buddhism and Time

28: What is the 'alaya'? The store consciousness, its history, and implications for Zen practice.

27: I’ve heard you use the phrase ‘daily life practice’ in some of the talks. Is this different from mindfulness practice?
