Dharmatalk: Practice-Realization

April 6, 2021

“… taste the indivisible dynamism of the heart of compassion …”


“… The slightest movement is a seismic gesture; the whole earth shaken to the farthest regions …”

Description: In this talk given during the Spring 2020 sesshin at Mountain Cloud, Valerie Forstman delves into Case 54 of the Book of Equanimity. The bodhisattva Avalokiteshvara is said to have a thousand hands and eyes. When one monk asks another what all these hands and eyes are for, the response invites us to taste the indivisible dynamism of the heart of compassion and come home to the wonder and subtle functioning of the one true body.
