Kathie Fischer: Vimalakirti’s Silence Upaya Zen Center's Dharma Podcast

    • Buddhism

Sensei Kathie Fischer explores the core tenets of Mahayana Buddhism, inviting us into deeper dialogue regarding the principles of non-duality, form, emptiness, and self. She brings us into the depth of Vilmalakirti’s thunderous silence, reminding us that it penetrates our lives and that it is close at hand when we drop the preferential mind. She reminds us that we throw ourselves into language, into objects, without noticing, we are attaching to these experiences of our lives without mindfulness, and we can transform this and instead rest in silence, and abide in the action and being of love.
