Today’s FBA Dharmabyte is a curious exploration entitled “Meeting Another’s ‘Environment’.” Sharing the teaching of Lin Chi on ‘environment’ and how we meet a whole container of history, memories, emotions when we meet another. With stories about Hakuin, the Samurai and the Order Member Saghasen in India, this little excerpt packs a punch!
Our FBA Dharmabyte today, “The Wisdom Hearer”, is an excerpt from the fabulous talk “The Sound of Reality” by Padmavajra. In this section we hear Hakuin’s poem of Awakening along with Padmavajra’s reflections on the nature of sound, impermanence and insubstantiality. Vanish into emptiness and silence!
