August Zazenkai Talk

Speaker: Chi Kwang Sunim
Topic: Absolute Sunyata and its Absolute Transcendence
Date: Saturday 27 August
Time: 9am to 1pm
Place: CERES

In the Vimalakirty Sutra it is explained in the Dharma gate of non-duality, in The Diamond Sutra, the Buddha renounces all doctrines as but names for the inexpressible and in Huayen’s Realm of Totality, thorough negation continues for the Bodhisattva, as Sunyata itself must be transcended absolutely! Let’s explore further what these Sutras are saying here, as it is important to understand what these teachings mean, especially in regards to our Zen practice and the Bodhisattva path.

The talk commences at 12pm. If you are unable to attend all of zazenkai, you are welcome to attend the talk only. Please arrive before the talk commences, wait for the previous sitting round to end, and then enter the dojo quietly and respectfully.
