Dharmatalk: Sound of Silence

December 7, 2021

“… the silence that is our very essence ...”

“… The reality of silence knows no birth and no death ...”

Description: In this talk, Migaku Sato Roshi discusses how the reality that we have the potential to awaken to in Zen is universally available to all human beings. Some indeed have this experience without doing any meditation practice. Migaku Roshi surmises that Paul Simon may have been describing such an experience when he wrote the song, The Sound of Silence. From a Zen perspective, the lyrics to that song refer to the silence that is our very essence.

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