Dharmatalk: Mountains and Snow

September 28, 2021

“… The image of mountains is common to many spiritual traditions but is especially fitting for Zen practitioners ...

“… This truth knows no obstacles anywhere...”

Description: This talk was originally given in Spanish by Berta Meneses Roshi and is here translated into English. She discusses the koan that starts by telling us, “A thousand mountains are covered in snow;” then goes on to ask, “Why is only one peak not white?” The image of mountains is common to many spiritual traditions but is especially fitting for Zen practitioners when we embody silent stillness in our sitting.

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