Full moon Clear mirror, another name for Zazen…. the still still state of this practice illuminating everything, reflecting each thing just as it is. ~ Valerie Forstman

Valerie looks at a central theme: The all-pervading sitting of Shakyamuni Buddha. She explores Case 18 from the Blue Cliff Record, The National Teacher’s Tombstone.
