From the Record of Master Zhaozhou: What is Meditation?
What motivates our practice? What underlies our intention to wake up? What are our questions? In the beginning, we may not even know. Or, those very same questions may weigh us down for years. In this inspiring talk, Shugen Sensei explores the mind of the student—open, receptive, inquiring. When our limited views obscure this naturally clear mind of inquiry, a teacher can help us to see beyond these self-imposed limitations, reinvigorating the questions that keep our practice alive.
