    Talk on Sandokai

    I just enjoyed this talk by Jakusho Kwong Roshi of Sonoma Mountain Zen Centre on the Sandokai (The Identity of Relative and Absolute).
    Posting in case others might find it helpful to understand this liturgy too.

    The result is not the point; it is the effort to improve ourselves that is valuable. There is no end to this practice. --Shunryu Suzuki

    Thank you Karasu. I listened to this and it was really wonderful. Kwong Roshi had much good to say but I was most moved by his laughter. His laughter is so genuine. Hearing this and the Sangha echoing that laughter in the background, I couldn't help but smile and think that Genjoji sounds like a joyful place.

    Arnold - yes, i found exactly the same. Roshi dissolving into laughter at the end was the part that remains with me most!

    I am going to say that it is a bit of a messy talk, all over the place. But there are some very good moments ... and I do love Bill Kwong's laugh!

    I agree, Jundo. I did want more content on the Sandokai but thought it was worth sharing in any case.
