We have spent a week in deep practice doing far from what we would "ordinarily" do. So what does Nansen mean when he says, "Ordinary Mind is Tao?" Though often obscured by the busyness of life and our habit-mind propensity…
 
In Autumn Sesshin's Day Six Teisho, given on Oct. 7th, 2021, Rinzan Osho examines The Hekiganroku case 65, "A Non-Buddhist Philosopher Questions the Buddha."

In Autumn Sesshin's Day Three Teisho, given on Oct. 4th, 2021, Rinzan Osho examines The Hekiganroku, Case 61, "Fuketsu's One Particle of Dust." The practice of Zen is the practice of bursting through barriers. The path to realization is difficult. Our own mind can often confound us.

In Autumn Sesshin's Day Two Teisho, given on Oct. 3rd, 2021, Rinzan Osho examines The Hekiganroku, Case 60, "Ummon's Staff Becoming a Dragon."

"If not this, then what?"…
 
In this Teisho, given on Sept. 12th, 2021, Rinzan Pechovnik Osho examines The Blue Cliff Record, Case 55: Dogo's "I Would Not Tell You."

Answers from those who have gone before will not satisfy our spiritual hunger. How i…
 
In this Teisho, given on September 5th, 2021, Rinzan Pechovnik Osho examines The Hidden Lamp: "Jiaoan's Sand in the Eye."

In this Teisho, given on August 1st, 2021, Rinzan Pechovnik Osho examines The Hidden Lamp: Jiyu Kennett's "Not Bigger, Not Smaller." This teisho was given just as the impact of the COVID-19 Delta variant was becoming well known. In the face of this as well as other hardships, how do we think of "enlightenment?" Do we think it is something we can at…
