Episode Description: This instructive teisho reviews Buddha’s earliest core teachings: The Four Noble Truths and The Three Marks of Existence. The Three Fires of greed, hatred and delusion mislead us, so we get caught in the Three Worlds of desire, form and no-form. Henry applies these early teachings directly to Case 2 of the Book of Equanimity in which Emperor Bu asks Bodhidharma, “What is the highest holiness?” Bodhidharma’s answer is “no holiness, only vast and void.” Listen to this talk and discover how Bodhidharma sits, stops and sees precisely what Shakyamuni discovered and taught in his early teachings.
