It’s been a long time since Jiryu or I have gotten it together to post something here, but I wanted to share a link to a dharma talk I gave in Houston last week at the end of rohatsu sesshin. In it, I try to take up the question of where different Buddhist schools have drawn the limits of the Buddha’s awakening as a way to try to understand our particular Soto Zen way. Limits and limitlessness–it was fun for me to consider.
So is it cheating to use a talk as a blog post? Yes. Yes it is.
