Dharma Discourse by John Daido Loori, Roshi
Seeking fulfillment from our lives, we may feel anxious not to make any misteps. But what is a life without mistakes? In this talk, Daido Roshi encourages us to cultivate deep faith in our buddha nature, a faith so vast that it can hold all of our so-called mistakes. Then we can be truly free.
The koan in this talk is “The Woman of Daishan,” Case 133 from the True Dharma Eye. It was given at ZMM in November 1998.
