Dharmatalk: A Goad for Training

January 5, 2021

“… This being here like this is a marvellous arising of a mirage …”

this here mirage shukman

Description: This talk, the second one given during the 2019 Rohatsu Sesshin, further discusses the group of lines from the Heart Sutra that starts, “No eye, ear, nose,” etc. The sutra breaks down our entire perception of reality by the sense organs, sense objects, and the process of sensation; and to all of these repeats – No! We may be tempted to accept the peace that comes with such awareness and become complacent in our practice. Within zen training our teacher is there to remind us that we cannot stop, not even here.
