Sokuzan teaches the practice of transforming energies of The Three Poisons: passion, aggression and ignorance.
As the annual Ango (practice) retreat begins, Sokuzan reminds us that this is a practice to strengthen our awareness and not a performance to strengthen how we appear to ourselves and others, always returning to this simple awareness situation in the present.
Sokuzan gives an energetic Dharma talk about The Three Poisons that give rise to suffering: passion, aggression and ignorance. He encourages meditation as a way to practice awareness and see through our tendencies to go to war with ourselves.
