Patrick Yunen Kelly, Senior Lay Student

Zen Center of New York City, Fire Lotus Temple, Sunday 08/07/2022

In this talk, Yunen explores Dogen’s teachings on zazen through his Fukanzazengi. One of Dogen’s central questions was “If all beings possess the Buddha nature, then what is the need for vigorous practice?” Yunen interweaves an account of Dogen’s life with an inquiry into how he practiced this Great Doubt.
