Bodhidharma's Contemplating Mind--Fruitful Stillness

Bodhidharma's Contemplating Mind--Fruitful Stillness

Koans of the Way of Reality: Case 68
Master Bodhidharma is considered to be the first ancestor of Zen. He is reputed to have brought the tradition from India to China. His teachings are always very straightforward, pointing directly to the nature of mind and reality. In this discourse, Abbot Loori looks at a dialogue between Bodhidharma and his disciple Huike, in which Bodhidharma clarifies the relationship between suffering and the workings of the dualistic mind of discrimination. The central source of all evil and pain are the three poisons--greed, anger, and ignorance. Bodhidharma instructs that in comprehending the mind amidst greed, anger and ignorance, we free that mind and reach a place of profound peace. But our search is not complete at that point. After reaching the summit, the valleys of the topsy-turvy world are unavoidable necessities that beckon to be practiced and realized.
