“…  Present moment awareness is deeply fulfilling.”

Description: This is the second talk of the 2018 Rohatsu sesshin. The benefits of restriction, i.e., not moving, concentrating on our practice, etc., are discussed. This leads into Case 1 of the Gateless Gate and the koan “Mu.” Using the commentary written by Mumon as a touchstone, this talk explores gradual cultivation, sudden enlightenment and how to sit with Mu.
