Dharmatalk: Is Zen Buddhist?

November 16, 2021

“… Zen is a mechanism for letting go ...”

They insisted that the reality of shunyata (emptiness) must be realized in personal experience, encompassing everything in its scope. Regardless of how we classify it, Zen is a mechanism for letting go, in order to experience one “goneness” – which also springs forth in unceasing giving and unfolding.
