That which is here now is enlightenment. So why do we continually seek an idea of enlightenment that lies in the future and is outside of ourselves? Why do we attach to the forms of religious practice? In this pointed dharma discourse, Ryushin Sensei challenges us to cease clinging to fixed concepts concerning liberation and spiritual practice. Instead, he urges us to discover what is most difficult to find: this present moment.
