Krista Tippett’s On Being


The Zen Parable of the Empty Cup

One day, a student came to a famous Zen master and asked to be instructed in the teachings of Zen Buddhism. The master invited him to sit and proceeded to discuss the important aspects of Zen. “First, let us understand the idea of emptiness,” said the master. But the student said, “Oh, I already know about emptiness.” The master said, “Let us then begin with the principles of meditation.” But the student said, “I already know how to meditate.” Finally, the master suggested a cup of tea. When the tea was ready, he poured it into the student’s cup. When the cup was full, the master continued pouring so that the cup was overflowing and the tea spilled all over. “Stop!” shouted the student, “You can’t pour tea into a full cup!” The master said “That’s right. Go away and come back when your cup is empty.”

    Our founder @taramarieperri is featured in this month’s Retreat issue of DVEIGHT Magazine!  The perfect read for this snowy Sunday morning. 
Repost @dveightmag:
#Ruralist: "We’re made up of space, air, fire, water and earth. In the Northeast we experience the seasons with distinction and have an incredible opportunity to observe how the cycles and rhythms of the seasons change both around us and within us. During the winter, the body, like the natural world, is weak from fall’s death cycle and needs winter’s deep rest to reinforce its strength for spring. Winter holds a special opportunity for introspection. Trees and animals are always showing us how to live. In the winter they retreat and hibernate. The cold also encourages us to stay indoors so we can explore the benefits of quiet and stillness—to make time to develop and engage in self-care." - TaraMarie Perri, founder of @perriinstitute (📷 @pbcrosby | interview @jillianschein) Join @luminousarchitecture tonight at 6:30pm in Union Square for this week’s Fall Seasonal Yoga Series.
