News & Announcements

Just This Is It
Book talk by Taigen Dan Leighton
Wednesday May 27, 6:30 pm
Seminary Co-op
5751 S. Woodlawn Avenue

In Taigen’s new book, Just This Is It, the joy of “suchness”‐the ultimate true nature inherent in all appearance‐shines throughout the teachings attributed to Dongshan Liangjie. The teaching stories from the koans in which Dongshan is featured reveal the subtlety and depth of his teaching on the nature of reality. Taigen’s playful comments and those of modern figures such as Lewis Carroll, Rimbaud, Jack London, and Bob Dylan illuminate aspects of self and nonself, the immediacy of the path, and the practice nourishment offered by Dongshan.
