PODCAST: Act Like a Buddha
Posted on Friday, January 3rd, 2014
Dharma Discourse by John Daido Loori, Roshi
In this impassioned talk Daido Roshi addresses the misconception that Zen is beyond morality, urging us to take responsibility for the whole universe in how we live our lives. “You are already a buddha,” he exclaims, “Act like one!”
The koan in the talk is “Priest Xixian’s I am Watching,” case 227 from the True Dharma Eye. It was given at Zen Mountain Monastery in October 2002.
