Dharmatalk: Case 88, Book of Equanimity: “Non-Seeing” in the Ryôgon Sutra (Part 2 of 2)

September 19, 2019

“We become the empty bowl that can receive the water.”

Description: Case 88, taken from a sutra, is an unusual koan. It diverges from the narrative form that typically demonstrates how Zen is continuously pointing to the ordinary moments of life. This expansive talk explores the Ryôgon Sutra and poses three key questions about “seeing”: What is there to see? Who is there to do any seeing? Is there actually any seeing?
