3-part Dharma Talk: It’s Not About Enlightenment

In July and August 2012, Su Co Tâm Hu’o’ng gave three Dharma Talks related to Enlightenment/Nirvana and a question, “What did Dogen mean when he said, ‘You have to die in Zazen’?”

Part 1: It’s not about Enlightenment  (Unfortunately, the degraded memory card — now retired and little-mourned — affected the recording of the first of the three talks.

While we see if anything from that talk is save-able, see if #2 and #3 make any sense…)

Part 2: Dying in Zazen
