He is one of my favourite musicians, as well as being a Rinzai monk too. A great interview that made me realise that renouncing, while liberating, should be done in moderation. And that our practice goes beyond the cushion. I remember in Shambhala they would call this "post-meditation" and it was defined "as important -sometimes more important- than the sitting practice itself", how we engage in our day to day activitivities is essential to avoid unnecessary suffering.

Good day to all.
