“Beginning Mind,” the theme of this Mountain Record, explores the Way-seeking path that calls on us to be wholehearted, attentive, unbiased—to bring forth a mind of beginning, again, and again. Shugen Sensei describes the importance of preparing one’s mind through ancient, traditional Buddhist practices such as prostrations, making offerings, and atonement. Zuisei Goddard explores the wisdom of starting by aligning one’s perspective with the Buddha’s teaching through Right View, and Joseph Goldstein describes the expectations and impatience we bring beginning practice as well as the humbling and softening that can happen over time.
Includes writing by the teachers of the Mountains and Rivers Order, Robin Wall Kimmerer, Deborah Hay, and Joseph Goldstein.
