Dharma talk on Shobogenzo Zuimonki 2-21 (Japanese & English), April 14th 2016

Dinner at Antaiji and dharma talk on Shobogenzo Zuimonki 2-18, April 8-9th 2016

Kanda has caught a fish. Or does he try to explain the dharma?
“It’s BIG. This big!
English talk starts after 10 minutes:

Once Ejo asked,

“As an activity of Zen practitioners, mending or patching old or tattered clothing instead of throwing it away, seems to be clinging to things. Yet abandoning old clothing and wearing new robes shows that we are seeking after new things. Both of these are wrong. Ultimately, what should we do?”

Dogen replied,

“If we are free from holding on to what we have yet do not seek after what we don’t have, either way is all right. Still, it would be better to mend torn clothing, in order to keep it for as long as possible and not pursue acquiring new clothing.”

Muho talks a lot (again), April 6th 2016
