To see a World in a Grain of Sand; And a Heaven in a Wild Flower ~William Blake

Description: This talk was given by Ruben Habito Roshi, founding teacher of Maria Kannon Zen Center in Dallas, TX. Beginning with William Blake’s poem, “Auguries of Innocence,” we are invited to glimpse our true nature. Words and concepts can only point to this reality— but in stillness, with open hearts, we can become it. The basic guidelines of Zen practice are reviewed as well as how practice can unfold into the wonder of a world of awareness, denoted here by the term samadhi, where there is no gap between subject and object.

NOTE: The original recording contains a low background hum, however Ruben Roshi’s words can be clearly heard. Please increase/adjust your volume when his talk begins (@ ~ 1:20 minute mark) and you’ll be able to listen without any issues. Please accept our apologies for any inconvenience.

For Ruben Roshi’s BIO, please visit one of his earlier guest posts: The Oak Tree in the Garden.

    tried to listen to podcast – entered my email three times — was repelled — problem? Have been a member of Mountain Cloud, but may have lapsed on membership though I have donated several times.

      Hi Ani, Membership status has now baring on listening to the podcasts. Though we love people to support us with membership. I’ll check into the technical issue. Someones it works to use a different browser on your computer.
