Prabu Gikon Vasan, Senior Lay Practitioner

Zen Mountain Monastery, 8/16/2020

Unconditional love is the kind that leads dharma teacher angel Kyodo williams to declare her aspiration, “To love those who want me to be invisible.” Along with James Baldwin’s instructions to his nephew on radical acceptance and teachings from the Pali canon on the Three Poisons, Gikon poses the questions: what would it be like to receive this kind of love? As we live into this time of deep division based on our nation’s history of injustice and our collective failure to reckon with that, we can take up this practice wholeheartedly, as the labor of love.
