Rohatsu Sesshin Talk 1 of 6: A Guide to the Museum Called “Me” (Part 1)

July 14, 2018

Buddha awareness

Description: This teisho is the first talk from the 2017 Rohatsu sesshin. The objective is to outline a guide to two levels of “the museum called ‘me,’” beginning with an excerpt from Hakuin Zenji’s Song of Zazen: Lost on dark paths of ignorance, we wander through the six worlds, from dark path to dark path. Henry examines the six worlds, first in their traditional framework and then, in a more personal way. The second level is comprised of our sense-based, present-moment experiences—feeling, seeing, hearing, smelling, tasting. Our guide to this level, or “The Now Gallery,” was taught by the Buddha as the four-fold awareness—awareness of body, awareness of thoughts, awareness of feelings and awareness of dharma, or teachings about the way things are.
