Ron Hogen Green, Sensei
Zen Mountain Monastery, New York, Friday 10/28/2022
From The Blue Cliff Record, Case 74 – Chin Niu’s Rice Pail
Hogen Sensei begins with the dancing, laughing Master Chin Niu. There are routines in and throughout our lives, as it is in the life of the monastery. How do we understand these routines? How do we practice them? And what is it that’s reflected in our actions? Is there receiving? Is there offering? Within each of our unique karmic lives, we bring forth our true nature, with awareness or not.
