Ron Hogen Green, Sensei
Zen Mountain Monastery, New York, Thursday 11/18/2021
From The Blue Cliff Record, Case 86 – Everyone Has Their Own Light
Hogen Sensei asks us: “how can we talk about enlightenment when there is nothing to understand about enlightenment?”. We are inherently enlightened but our conditioning, karma and unskillful ways prevent us seeing it. We should remember that we all have own light and that zazen is the process for cultivating this light.
