Dharma Discourse by John Daido Loori, Roshi
What is emptiness? Because we can’t understand it intellectually, it’s easy to stumble when it comes to teachings on emptiness. In this talk, Daido Roshi looks at how, to appreciate emptiness, we need to see through our view of the self as bounded and separate.
The koan in this talk is “Nailing Up the Seam,” from Koans of the Way of Reality, an in-house collection compiled by Daido Roshi. It was given in November 2005.
