Featured: Entangling Vines Case 99 - Jiashan's State of Mind

A student asked Jiashan, “What is Jiashan’s state of mind?”
Jiashan answered, “Monkeys, clasping their young to their breasts, return beyond the green peaks: a bird with a flower in its beak alights before the blue grotto.”
—Entangling Vines, Case 99

Wednesday Meditation & Talk with David Weinstein Roshi: As Ungrateful as a Sunset

November 25, 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Free – $10

Register here for David’s meditation & talk

A teacher called their attendant three times, and three times the attendant responded.
The teacher said,

“I was about to say that I was ungrateful to you.

But the fact is that you are ungrateful to me.”

– Gateless Gate (Wumenguan), Case 17

Though this koan would appear to be an exploration of ingratitude, koans are often not what they appear to be, like us. Koans reflect us back to ourselves and where they appear to be contradictory or nonsensical, that is a reflection of us too.

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