with John Daido Loori, Roshi
For most of Buddhism's 2,500 year history, the teachings have primarily been applied in a monastic context. Most contemporary Western practitioners, however, are homedwellers who have an entirely different frame of reference. In these four probing dialogues on lay practice, Daido Roshi examines how the Eight Gates training matrix of the Mountains and Rivers Order provides guidelines for homedwelling Buddhist practitioners.
Session One: Focuses on the core home practices of zazen, liturgy, academic study, art and body practice
Session Two: Explores work and the principles of Right Livelihood
Session Three: Takes up the precepts—the moral and ethical teachings of the Buddha
Session Four: Addresses opportunities for practice in our relationships with partners, families, colleagues, and neighbors
Full of insight and practical advice, this set offers invaluable support for stabilizing and vitalizing your home practice.
Available in mP3 format only.
Powerful accompaniment to my personal liturgy.
I am listening to this slowly because Daido Roshi's talks (as well as the dialog with sanga members) help me develop my practice. Even though he is gone, I am grateful to receive his wisdom and direction from his talks.
Pure excellence. It's what was expected from Daido Roshi, and never fails to deliver :o)
