Dharmatalk: Loving Awakening

March 30, 2021

“… 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.
