Joshin Byrnes & Genzan Quennell: Sesshin: The Continuing Stories of the Lotus Sutra (Part 4)

Senseis Joshin Byrnes and Genzan Quennell talk about how important selflessness is to the Bodhisattva path. Sensei Joshin emphasizes the importance of not clinging to fame, profit, body, mind, or enlightenment. He tells a story of generosity from the Lotus Sutra of Quan Yin who, after twice rejecting a gift from The Buddha, finally accepts it only to break it into two and re-gift it to other people as a form of generosity. Joshin lists four ways in which a Bodhisattva embraces the world which include giving, kind speech, beneficial action, and identity action. Sensei Genzan concludes with encouragement for Sesshin practitioners to keep practicing wholeheartedly even if the end of Sesshin is in sight. For Series description, please visit Part 1.
