with Shugen Sensei and Ryushin Sensei
Early in his life as a teacher, 13th century
Japanese Zen Master Eihei Dogen penned a
pithy chapter for his students: “Gakudo
Yojinshu,” or “Guidelines for Studying the
Way.” In question and answer sessions at Zen
Mountain Monastery, Shugen Sensei and
Ryushin Sensei took up this teaching that
centers on the critical interplay between
zazen and the teacher-student relationship.
They highlight aspects of this rich teaching
that are as fresh, relevant and essential for
our practice today as they were for Dogen’s
monks in the 1200s. 6 CD set.
