A Great Way to "Shine One Corner of The World"
This podcast is a GREAT way to learn, first hand, from some of the best teachers of "American" Zen. With their emphasis on compassionate action and insight... It doesn't get much better than this. For thos who don't know about the Center, The San Francisco Zen Center was established in 1962 by Shunryu Suzuki Roshi (1904-1971) and his American students. Suzuki Roshi is known to countless readers as the author of the modern spiritual classic, "Zen Mind, Beginner's Mind." These podcasts make accessible the wisdom and compassion of the Buddha as expressed in the Soto Zen tradition established by Dogen Zenji in 13th-century Japan and conveyed to us by Suzuki Roshi and other Buddhist teachers. These podcasts help us discover and realize that all beings are Buddha, and that sitting in meditation is itself the realization of Buddha nature, or enlightenment.
