Thursday Meditation & Talk with David Parks Roshi: Welcoming My Wolf Family

November 19, 2020 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm

Free – $10

Register here for David’s meditation & talk

Followers of the Way, the Dharma of the buddhas calls for no special undertakings. Just act ordinary, without trying to do anything particular. Move your bowels, piss, get dressed, eat your rice and if you get tired, then lie down. People who try to do something about what is outside themselves are nothing but blockheads. Wherever you are, just take the role of host, and that place will be a true place.

—The Record of Linji, Chapter 13

Feeling ourselves to be in exile, we desire to find ourselves in the course of things, to find the undivided wholeness that is “Welcome.” And for that we will sell the farm, leave home, and set out for the better and best. For our Chan ancestor Linji, these amendments to the lives we lead are themselves a step outside of belonging. His prescription? “Act ordinary.” Another way to say this might be, “You have your life. Live it!”

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