Today our book club met. We had a good discussion on the introduction to Shunryu Suzuki’s Sandokai lecture series. The book is called Branching Streams Flow in the Darkness. The intro was really inspiring a whole host of thoughts and reactions, and members took the opportunity to talk not only about the text, but other thoughts, ideas, and personal experiences. We always have a good chat.
For next time, we’ll talk about the first six lectures in the book. These chapters / lectures each cover a couplet of the original Sandokai text, and are rich without being over-wrought or showy.
Anyways, please join us if you can.
March 16th, 8 to 10 am, at All Beings Zendo in Adams Morgan.
