Jody Hojin Kimmel, Sensei
Zen Center of New York City, Fire Lotus Temple, Sunday 10/22/2023
From “The Hidden Lamp, Stories from Twenty-Five Centuries of Awakened Women”
Hojin sensei explores “Chiyono’s No Water, No Moon” from the Hidden Lamp. What happens to the moon when its reflection vanishes? In the same vein, where do we go when we truly open up and let go? Becoming more aware that we and all things are without self, we’ll experience the freedom to choose; to “hold it together” or “let things fall apart”, in accord with our situation.
