4 PZI Teachers Explore Hakuin’s Praise Song for Meditation – Part 4, recorded January 30, 2022. Exquisite music for meditation from Michael Wilding & concludes with the Four Boundless Vows sung acapella by Jesse Cardin.
The verse for Part 4 explorations: This very place is paradise. This very body the Buddha.
All four teachers read verses of the Praise Song for Meditation.
It doesn’t often feel like this verse is true in our own lives! Yet waiting on perfection is always disappointing and involves suffering.
Allison Atwill begins by noting Hakuin’s bombastic nature and how his awakening deepened when he addressed his dislike and unbridled criticism of fellow Zen teachers. When his heart opened his light poured forth into the world and touched those around him.
