Buddha’s Parinirvana – The Great Unbinding,Teshin Matt Sweger (Video)

February 23, 2023

Celebrated on February 15, Teshin commemorates the passing on of the Buddha – parinirvana – and looks at the ways we understand death, the central question to be resolved in our lives. Teishin explores how we, as Zen practitioners, approach our own unbinding – how do we untangle the knot of self? What is it to be unbound?

Teshin Matt Sweger is the resident teacher at the North Carolina Zen Center. He began his Zen practice in 1993 at the Rochester Zen Center in the lineage of Philip Kapleau. He is also a practicing psychotherapist and enjoys exploring the intersection of Zen practice and experiential psychotherapy.
