“… See with the eyes of the heart …” ~ Ruben Habito

Description: This talk was given by Ruben Habito, founding teacher of Maria Kannon Zen Center in Dallas, TX, on the occasion of a memorial service to celebrate the life of a sangha member. In Case 3, Master Ba is close to death and the temple attendant asks him how he is feeling. What does Master Ba’s answer show us about how he lived? How does a person who has long-practiced Zen meet their death? Every moment, Zen practice cultivates a way of being that enables joy and ease, gratitude and compassion.

NOTE: The original recording was at a low volume, however Ruben Roshi’s words can be clearly heard. Please increase/adjust your volume when his talk begins (@ ~ 1:25 minute mark) and you’ll be able to listen without any issues. Please accept our apologies for any inconvenience.
