Dharmatalk: Dosho Port speaks about his new book The Record of Empty Hall: One Hundred Classic Koans

May 24, 2022

Description: Dosho Port teaches with the Vine of Obstacles: Online Support for Zen Training and at the Nebraska Zen Center in Omaha, and he has been practicing Zen since 1977. The Record of Empty Hall is his new translation and commentary on a classic collection of koans by Xutang Zhiyu (1185-1269), an important figure in Ch’an/Zen Buddhism. Port illuminates these remarkable koans and their place in contemporary Zen practice, opening new paths into the multiplicity of meaning at the heart of koan inquiry.

And, here’s a link to our YouTube video of this talk.

Note: Dosho’s portion of the talk has some background noise which could not be lessened but it is still “listenable” – our apologies for any inconvenience.
