Description: This talk focuses on a teaching story from very early in Master Jôshû’s training with his teacher, Master Nansen. Nansen tells Jôshû that the ordinary mind is the Way. What is ordinary mind? What is the Way? Ordinary experience is extraordinarily miraculous. It is “as vast and boundless as the great empty sky” and it is always right here.
