The Journey Into Awakening – The Most Marvelous Thing

John Tarrant

PZI Zen Online: The Journey into Awakening. A student asks Baizhang, “What is the most marvelous thing—a matter of special worth?” He answers, “Sitting alone on Mt. Courage Peak.” Our internal vastness is always there. The importance of an imaginative response to any time of change. The wisdom of an indigenous storyteller who embodies a much longer timeline of radical earth changes. The freedom of not being you. Dec 13 2020. Music posted separately.
