From The Book of Serenity, Case 13 – Linji’s “Blind Ass”
It’s important to study the lives of the ancestors and get to know them. Though, who is it we’re really getting to know? And what is transmitted down through the ages? Is that karma? This Dharma Discourse was given by Shugen Roshi at the conclusion of a weekend retreat on Ch’an Buddhist History led by Dr. Elizabeth Morrison.
