Zen Mountain Monastery, New York, Sunday 12/11/2022

In our daily liturgy we refer to Prajna Paramita – Perfection of Wisdom – as “The Mother of all Buddhas…dispelling all fears…” Just as a mother naturally soothes her child’s pain and fear, can we allow for the possibility of holding and dispelling our own fear when we’re open to this wisdom beyond wisdom? Shoan explores this question and more and shares a moving poem by Joy Harjo addressing fear.
