Lions Roar : July 2016
somehow we live a very easy life, that it’s a form of begging.” But for Leinster, the humility of receiving such generosity is part of the wonder of the practice. “In that giving, there’s the presence of so much kindness, a sense of something very beau- tiful,” she says. “It is really nice to be part of that.” YOYU MALVERN COSTELLOE gets up at 4:15 a.m.—ten minutes before the wake-up bell—and navigates the morning darkness to the meditation hall, being sure to be at his seat before the first bells. For the next two hours, through two periods of zazen, walking meditation, and chanting, he remains there, in the silent and still company of his teacher. This close contact with his teacher, Tenshin Reb Anderson, is the reason Myoyu is here at Green Gulch Farm, one of three residential centers under the umbrella of the San Francisco Zen Center. The two met when Anderson visited a Buddhist center in England where Myoyu was working as a maintenance manager. According to Myoyu, they “just clicked,” and he told Anderson in a private interview that he wanted to be his student. “I told him that I wanted to be a conduit like he was for all this love,” Myoyu remembers. “He asked me why, and I said, ‘Because I want my children to feel that sort of love.’ He said, ‘Well, that’s a start. But we want to do that for all beings.’ I was totally knocked out by him.” PHOTOSBYMICHELLEGERRARD Caroline Leinster lives full-time at Amaravati Theravada monastery in England, where she is the trust secretary and all-purpose administrator.
