A brief dharma talk by Jesse Cardin, Sensei, from the It’s Alive! Zen weekly meditation group in San Antonio, Texas on 11/13/19.

“The Buddha way is to study the self. To study the self is to forget the self. To forget the self is to be awakened by the 10,000 things. When you are awakened by the 10,000 things, your body and mind as well as the bodies and minds of others drop away.”

– Dogen Kigen
