Sokuzan gives part 1 of a Dharma talk about the Lankavatara Sutra
This interview with Sokuzan on taking refuge vows and the five precepts was conducted and transcribed for a group of Buddhist inmates as a study aid to help them prepare for their refuge vow ceremony with Sokuzan in a Michigan prison.
“Trust yourself” is often heard in Sokuzan’s teachings. In this Dharma talk, Sokuzan encourages us to trust ourselves by not separating ourselves from slip-ups, self deception and fear.
