I'm married, have two young children, and teach high school English in central New Jersey. I'm also an aspiring author. My favorite Buddhist teachers include Seung Sahn, Mazu, Chinul, Zongmi, and of course, the Buddha himself. I am also very interested in Advaita Vedanta, especially the teachings of Papaji, Nisargadatta Maharaj, Gangaji, and Sri Ramana Maharshi.
"Original Mind" represents the goal of the Buddhist Path realized, our original nature--complete, perfect, lacking nothing. It's a common phrase used by Mazu, one of my favorite Zen ancestors.
Thanks for visiting.
