Book of Serenity, Case 53: Huangbo's "Dreg Slurpers"
Along with Great Doubt and Great Determination, Great Faith is an indispensable ingredient of Zen practice. Nothing happens without it. But wht is this faith, this deep trust? Where does it come from? And how can it possibly manifest in the moments we feel most confined and doubting of ourselves? From sources as varied as Huangbo, Martin Luther King, Jr., and Abraham Lincoln, Shugen Sensei explores the profound mystery of Great Faith in this powerful talk.
