Bernie Glassman died on Sunday morning, November 4, in Massachusetts.
He was 79. Bernie was a highly innovative and unconventional Zen Teacher who had an outsized impact on how Zen was experienced in his generation and beyond. His freewheeling, compassion filled dharma teaching and spirit will be missed.
One of the Buddha’s central claims is that there are two chief factors that set the stage for human suffering and dissatisfaction. First, life is constant change. Our immediate environment is constantly changing. We are constantly changing. And because of this, over and over again many of the things we need or adore disappear from our lives.
