Jody Hojin Kimmel, Sensei
Zen Mountain Monastery, 4/4/2021
As we celebrate the Buddha’s Birthday today, Hojin Sensei offers a teaching from Zen Master Bankei: “What I teach everyone, in these talks of mine, is the unborn buddha mind of unlimited wisdom. Nothing else. Everyone is endowed with this buddha mind, only they don’t know it.” Sensei looks at the subtle ways “the unborn buddha mind” manifests in and through all of us and she reminds us that we are all living Buddhas.
