Zen and the art of managing train commutes?

This is great. I mean, I have to stop myself from posting “This is great” on almost every photo because you’ll end up thinking I’m a bot. But this is so great.

Hmmm, but it would not be very zen for people sitting next to that old codger if his feet smell(ed)… ;S

No, it definitely wouldn’t. It was a very hot and humid day too, so unwanted odours were certainly a possibility…

He appears to have dozed off, time to make your rounds with the keisaju, the encouragement stick, a few strikes and he is ready to continue his zazen. ðŸ˜€
If only I could sit like that, my legs are not usedvto it and zazen becomes painful.

That is of course the ‘keisaku’ ðŸ˜¶

Haha, that would have surprised him, not to mention the other passengers!
But yeah, very flexible for an old fella. He didn’t struggle at all getting into that position either. All looked very natural. He has clearly been sitting like that for many, many years.

I agree with Linda…you might need to add a “like” button Lee. I NEVER miss a photo but don’t always comment.
