Blue Cliff Record, Case 37
Zen Mountain Monastery, 3/10/2019
How do we meet the moment, as it is unfolding? To say that there is nothing in the three worlds (form, formless, desire) is to understand that no material world exists outside of mind. Mind itself is without any substance of its own, yet practice involves examining mind. This talk explores how this case and teaching can help us not be bound by anything — by identity, the past, nor intellectual inquiry.
