Dharmatalk: Life and Death, Zen and God

December 28, 2021

“… from a Zen perspective God is indeed everywhere ...”

“… Does a practice lead to God where one forgets about God?. ...”

Description: Sanbo Zen teacher Marlis Muting discusses how her determination to resolve the problem of life and death led her to Zen. She focuses on the koan, Tosotsu’s Three Barriers, in which a group of monks are asked, “At this moment, where is your self-nature?” Drawing on her Christian background, Marlis explains how from a Zen perspective God is indeed everywhere, and the prospect of death need not worry us.
