It is inevitable that we enter spiritual practice with ideas and expectations. We want to be enlightened, to become a Buddha, and we want to do it as quickly as possible. In this introductory talk on entering practice, Shugen Sensei sheds a light on the assumptions and desires we bring with us, and calls on us to cast them aside in order to discover the mystery that lies at the heart of who we really are.
