Two Gates: Talk Three of Zen Basics Retreat with Henry Shukman

June 4, 2021

In this third talk of the Zen Basics Retreat, Henry returns to Bodhidharma and looks into the two entrances or two gates of practice: Principle and Practice.

1. Principle – Acknowledges suffering and peers into “forgotten nooks and crannies of our being.”

2. Practice – Examination – we look at the present moment and release unexamined assumptions to the “naked immensity of the moment.”
