Joshin Byrnes & Genzan Quennell: Sesshin: The Continuing Stories of the Lotus Sutra (Part 1)

As a continuation of the “Dharma Rain” theme from the Dharma Talk on the preceding day, Senseis Joshin Byrnes and Genzan Quennell begin with another passage from The Lotus Sutra. Genzan reads, “I bring fullness and satisfaction to the world, like a rain that spreads its moisture everywhere. Eminent and lowly, superior and inferior, observers of precepts, violators of precepts, those fully endowed with proper demeanor and those not fully endowed… —I cause the Dharma rain to rain on all equally…” Sensei Joshin raises a relevant question: how much water do you need to flourish as a unique individual? He explains that our work is in constantly discerning where the Dharma comes alive for us, finding the unique dharma gate which best matches our own personality to help us grow along the path of the Bodhisattva. He concludes with Four Peaceful practices which the Buddha taught on growing in our Buddhahood.
