Dharmatalk: Moving Toward the Winter Light

March 15, 2022

Description: Valerie Forstman explores the silence when Vimalakirti is asked, what is the bodhisattva entering the dharma-gate of non-duality (or the gate of not two)? Vimalakirti opens a portal to the world of many fragrances. How can we realize this world? Valerie turns to Chin Niu’s Rice Bucket – Dear Bodhisattvas come and eat rice. Chin Niu presents the entire world to the monks, if they see it, they enter the world of not two. If we see it, our separate self cannot survive. The rice is our whole body.

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