    Shohaku Okumura Roshi Dharma Talk

    I listened to a wonderful Dharma talk given by Shohaku Okumura Roshi over the weekend. I'm sharing here as I think it compliments the earlier discussion regarding correct approach to Zazen.

    He talks about the correct approach to practice; Buddha nature, thief Nature, and explains what Kodo Sawaki Roshi meant by "Zazen is good for nothing".
