Stone Bridge of Zhaozhou: with David Weinstein
April 21 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pmFree – $10
A student asked Zhaozhou, “I’ve heard about the stone bridge of Zhaozhou. But now that I’ve come, I see only a log across the river.”
Zhaozhou said, “You only see the log, you don’t see the stone bridge.”
“What is the stone bridge like?” the student asked.
“Donkeys cross over, horses cross over.” Zhaozhou replied.
The student’s comment, provocative though it was, also acknowledged the ordinariness of Zhaozhou’s teaching. His teaching was not grand and eloquent, like the Anji bridge. It was more like a simple log across a river. However, like the Anji bridge, Zhaozhou’s teaching provided a safe crossing to whomever, whether they be donkeys or horses.
Join us for a koan, meditation, dharma talk, & conversation. All are welcome. Register to participate.
