Dharma Discourse by John Daido Loori, Roshi
When we’re continually preoccupied with the future and the past, we miss our actual lives. Zazen gives us a way to come back to reality, yet even while we sit, we may wonder, “What’s next?” Nothing’s next! What happens when we really abandon ourselves to this simple truth?
The koan in this talk is “Yunmen’s End of the Ninety-day Training Period,”Case 208 from the True Dharma Eye. It was given at Zen Mountain Monastery November 7th, 2007.
