SIT-A-LONG with JUNDO: Enlightenment as Emptiness II


The next of the “Eight Types of Enlightenment

DOWNLOAD (PDF)

Everything is impermanent, nothing has ‘self’, all is empty … just realize this fact and you can make your great escape …

… so do Zen folks exist?

(By the way, you can see how my “non-existing” self reacted when a pretty good earthquake shook our sitting at about 27:45 minutes … My “not-self” was fine, but my “self” sure did want to get me and my family out of there! )

    I enjoyed your teisho talk. However, I haven’t been taught how to sit shikan taza which I believe is your style of sitting. Perhaps you’ll have a video explaining how you sit. Thanks,randy place

    Hi Randy,Especially for new folks to Zazen and/or Treeleaf, I recommend a series of talks for “beginners” on the Leaf “Sit-a-Long” netcast …http://treeleafzen.blogspot.com/2008/01 … nners.htmlWe all should maintain “Beginners Mind”, moment to moment. However, these talks are meant for beginners in “Just Sitting” Shikantaza Zazen and newcomers to Treeleaf Sangha. Shikantaza is our central Practice at Treeleaf.I discuss the “ins” and “outs” of “Just Sitting”, which has to do a lot with dropping thoughts like “in” and “out”. I talk about where you can expect to “go” in your Practice, and what you can expect to attain, which is, of course, ABSOLUTELY NO WHERE AND NOTHING! I talk about many of the nuts and bolts. There are 20 short talks in the series.I hope that both new folks and old timers will give a listen. We are all, of course, ever beginning now and now and now …Gassho, Jundo
