Next Tuesday we will be discussing ego, attachment and the self. As this is central to the Buddha’s teachings there are a wealth of resources on the web about this subject so please share anything that you enjoy with the group.
As we were settling on this subject for study this week, I was reminded of a teaching from my Zen period, from Dogen’s Genjokoan:
To study the way is to study the self.
To study the self is to forget the self.
To forget the self is to be enlightened by all things.
To be enlightened by all things is to be free from attachment to the body and mind of one’s self and of others.
The schedule is:
6:00 – 6:30 sitting
6:30 – 7:15 discussion
7:15 – 7:30 sitting
The sitting takes place at BIBS – location in the sidebar.
