White Collar Zen

Oxford University Press

This chapter discusses dissatisfaction or anxiety in Buddhism. According to Buddhism, whether you receive something you do not want or are thwarted in claiming what you expect, you should resist the futility and despair of endless grasping. Recognizing that no matter how hard you try, the long arm of Yama—the lord of decay, decline, and death—can never be evaded. You can, however, alter your attitude toward the constant flux by applying Zen strategies of maintaining equilibrium and concentration while being active and assertive.

Keywords:   Zen, Buddhism, anxiety, Yama, equilibrium
