About Suffering They Were Never Wrong: How Zen Relieves Suffering

November 22, 2014

Episode Description: Zen’s approach to suffering is extraordinary and brilliant. In a chain of koans concerning the early Chan masters, this talk examines that approach, and helps us to experience our self and our suffering in an entirely new light.


This talk was given by our resident teacher, Henry Shukman, on September 28, 2014.
