Video – Dosho Port: Record of Empty Hall

February 14, 2021

Dosho Port speaks about his new book The Record of Empty Hall: One Hundred Classic Koans.

Dosho Port teaches with the Vine of Obstacles: Online Support for Zen Training and at the Nebraska Zen Center in Omaha, and he has been practicing Zen since 1977. The Record of Empty Hall is his new translation and commentary on a classic collection of koans by Xutang Zhiyu (1185-1269), an important figure in Ch’an/Zen Buddhism. Port illuminates these remarkable koans and their place in contemporary Zen practice, opening new paths into the multiplicity of meaning at the heart of koan inquiry.

All dharma talks and Q&A sessions from the Encounter of the Heart Retreat are available on our YouTube Channel.
