Geoffrey Shugen Arnold, Roshi
Zen Mountain Monastery, Mt Tremper, New York, Sunday 10/01/2023
Dharma Encounter at the conclusion of the September 2023 Mountains and Rivers Sesshin
Looking at the Lojong Slogans 11, 12 and 13, Shugen Roshi challenges us with questions about how we experience and practice these in our daily lives. How do we transform evil? What does transformation mean in the context of “the path of realizing the self as empty”? How can we drive all blame into one? What does it mean to do that? And how can we be, all the while, grateful to everyone?
