“… Mu cuts through our false sense of separation...”

Description: A monk asked Haryo, “What is the sharpest sword?” He replied, “Each branch of corral reflects the moon.” Taking up the lens of this koan, Valerie invites us to see through the habitual grid of separateness and be illumined by the reality Haryo conveys: one single moon, reflected in many drops of dew. The sword that is so sharp it can cut even a hair blown against its blade is as intimate to us as our own practice.

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