Koan Study with Sojun Roshi
February 19, 2018 –
Sojun will continue with his series from The Book of Serenity on all four Monday evenings in February. The Book of Serenity is a collection of 100 koans, first published in the early 1200s, that is most identified with the Soto sect. Commentaries by contemporary Zen teacher Koun Yamada will accompany copies of the text. Along with each relatively short case is a verse by Hongzhi (1091-1157), commentary by Wansong( 1166-1246), and voices of other prominent Zen teachers of that era as they weigh in from their own perspective. The result is a lively and earthy collective approach to each case. We'll meet from 7:15 - 8:45 pm in the community room. Fee for the series is $40 with discounts available if needed. A sign up will be posted on the patio bulletin board in the first week of January. Those not at BZC on a weekly basis may register with class coordinator, Ron Nestor at firstname.lastname@example.org.
