“… clinging to identification with the self … the sense organs …”

five senses

“… Words cannot touch it. No words cannot touch it …”

Description: In this talk given during the 2020 Spring sesshin at Mountain Cloud, we examine the 12 links of dependent origination, which we find held together by our constant clinging to identification with the self. The Heart Sutra, in negating the five skandhas, the sense organs, objects of sensation, and so on, emphatically tells us no. There is none of that. To grasp this reality leads to the cessation of dependent arising, and liberation from the sense of self ensues.

    These podcasts , meditations and talks are total magic. Thanks so much. Could you inform me regarding what membership entails — how to do it, even if I live in Chicago, I’m thinking our Zoom world may offer new options for joining.

    Also could you let me know about several things:

    1. Virtual retreat options – possible?
    2. Virtual weekly talk options – possible?
    3. How distant members might engage in daily meditation.

    Thanks so much. These talks bring the Zen teachings to life with such tender and easy wisdom. I have been looking for a sangh and think Mountain Cloud may well be the place even given the distance.
