Hyakujo’s “Turning Word” from The Book of Equanimity

March 26, 2015

Episode Description: Roshi Henry presents a case from the Book of Equanimity in which Master Hyakujo’s “turning word” about the law of causation releases an old man into authentic freedom. Hear a magical story about how a man receives healing, love and timeless understanding from a gentle whale. Using personal disclosure and koan explication, Henry shows us how a kensho experience can lead to a dualistic split between “awakening” and “delusion,” which ongoing koan study and Zen training can fully resolve, leading to the true experience of Zen in ordinary life.
