In this helpful talk, Daido Roshi takes up the Buddhist teachings on the nature of mind, looking at how Zen trains us to study and realize this mind directly, and at zazen as a practice of closing the gap between ourselves and the universe.

The koan in this talk is “The Sixth Ancestor’s ‘Your Mind is Moving,’” Case 146 from the True Dharma Eye. It was given at ZMM in September 1999.
