Chris is new to meditation. He came to Chan Meditation in the Park class and he was very lucky to be able to cross his legs and sit in full lotus. He sat for 10~15 minutes during the class and unbuckled the legs. The pain was too much for him.
When people come to Lu Mountain Temple to learn meditation, pure vegetrian meal is offered for lunch to everyone. People often ask what pure vegetarianism is so I decided to write a short article from what I know and understand.
