Compass of Zen class: Zen part 3

July 30, 2022 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm CDT


The last class in our Compass of Zen series. With Zen Master Bon Hae (Judy Roitman). On Zoom. $15 requested, contact us if you need the fee waived. The class is based on Zen Master Seung Sahn’s Compass of Zen. We will be reading and discussing the chapters What is Buddha Nature?; Three Prajna Things; The Realm of Like-This; Looking Within, You Perceive Mind’s True Light; The Human Route; Just Seeing is Buddha-nature; Where Are You Going?; Zen Master To Sol’s Three Gates; Which of the Following Four Sentences is Freedom from Life and Death?; Original Face; Zen Master Ko Bong’s Three Gates; Just-Like This is Buddha; Conclusion — Only Go Straight Don’t Know. (It looks like a lot but it’s only about 50 pages.) The class is based on student discussion: each participant will speak for a few minutes on what struck them and what questions they had, then the teacher will respond, and then there will be a general discussion. In order for everyone to have the opportunity to speak, the class is limited to 15 participants. Registration will open in late June.
