Dharma Discourse by Geoffrey Shugen Arnold, Sensei
The Buddhist teachings are about dissolving all that hinders, harms, and oppresses—not by avoiding such afflictions, or by fighting them, but by transforming them. How do we do this? Shugen Sensei speaks about the path and the boundless potential of our humanity.
The koan in this talk is “‘Bodhidharma’s Contemplating Mind” Case 4 from Koans of the Way of Reality. It was given at ZCNYC on Jan 29th, 2012.
