Keichu’s Cart: Dharma Talk with Henry Shukman (Video)

Henry takes us into Keichu’s Cart, case eight from the Gateless Gate. Keichu was a legendary cart maker. What happens if the wheels and both axels are removed from the cart, what would become clear about the cart? What might it be to remove a wheel, if the cart is you – as you ordinarily function? Consider what the two wheels might be: dualistic pairs that we take for granted, high and low, life and death, before and after, parent and child, etc. How can a cart be a cart without wheels, or an axel? Henry explores the two ruts of practice.

    You never disappoint Henry. Every side road you take in order to point toward the reveal makes me grateful to be on this path and more excited to experience koans.
