Featured: PZI Miscellaneous Koans, Case 37 — Peach Blossoms

For thirty years I searched for a master swordsman.
How many times did the leaves fall, and the branches burst into bud?
But from the moment I saw the peach blossoms, I’ve had no doubts.

Heartmind Rising: with David Parks

April 15 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm

Free – $10

Register here for David’s Thursday meditation & talk

Case 94 from the Book of Serenity presents a situation. Dongshan is dying and there we have the ubiquitous monk who somehow doesn’t miss a beat in testing their teacher. With our attention, this case opens wide the matter at hand. Attention! What opens for you in this dialogue?

Attention!
Dongshan was ill.

Someone asked, “Teacher you are ill. Is there one who is not ill?”
“Yes, there is.” 
“Does this one who is not ill look after you?”
“I have the opportunity to look after him.”
“How is it when you look after him?”
“Then I see there is no sickness.”

Join us for a koan, meditation, dharma talk, & conversation. All are welcome. Register to participate.
