The Real Deal

A great supliment to my meditation practice, or when I just want to get my brain working!

This is not your average new-age mumbo jumbo, nor highly produced ted talks. Rather, these words from senior teachers of this American Rinzai Zen lineage (as well as some of their senior students among other guest speakers) go strait to the heart of Rinzai Zen teaching.

Many of the talks center around Zen koans, but even without being intimately familiar with all of the refeerenced texts, there is much laid bare here which can be quite powerful to take in.

It never ceases to amaze me how austensibly religious teachings such as these seem to hold such universal truths that it really is helpful to hear, and meditate on.
