Thread: Dogen podcasts

  1. #1

    Dogen podcasts

    A series of eight podcasts by Norman Fischer on Dogen's teachings on Zazen. I have only listened to the first one so cannot vouch for quality but he is usually pretty good.

    http://www.upaya.org/dharma/beyond-t...s-all-8-parts/

    Further information (after listening to the second podcast): Roshi is talking about the 28th fascicle of Shobogenzo - Zazen Shin (The Point of Zazen), p303 in Kaz Tanahashi translation. This fascicle begins with the well known dialogue between Yaoshan and a monk:

    Yaoshan, Great Master Hongdao, was sitting. A monk asked him, "In steadfast sitting what do you think?"
    Yaoshan said, "Think not-thinking."
    "How do you think not-thinking?"
    Yaoshan replied, "Beyond thinking"


    The second podcast has, in my opinion, an excellent explanation of what is meant by non-thinking or beyond thinking.

    As a trainee priest, please take any commentary by me on matters of the Dharma with a pinch of salt.

    Dear everyone ...

    I am about three talks into this series of talks posted above. I very much recommend such to all. The feel of the seminar can be a bit "Californy-loosey-goosey" at times to my taste, but Fischer Roshi truly conveys Dogen's Vision of Whole, Complete, Goalless Sitting.

    These talks on Dogen's "The Needle Point of Zazen" are very much recommended and not a waste of time though Thoroughly Totally Pointless ...
