What is “sacred?” Why have we human beings, throughout our existence on this earth, nearly universally created rituals and images invoking the sacred? How do we use the word today, and just what does it really mean? What then, if anything, fits that definition? Does Buddhism, specifically Zen, point us toward the sacred? What about the zen of “everyday mind,” and “nothing special”? What’s holy, or sacred about that? Join us for the Dharma Talk this Sunday as co-abbot Kyogen Carlson explores these and related questions.
You can listen to this talk, given Sunday, August 31.
