Dharma Talk with Shintai
May 26 @ 11:15 am - 12:00 pm
“Sun-faced Buddha, Moon-faced Buddha”
There is a koan story from the Blue Cliff record called “Sun Faced Buddha, Moon-faced Buddha”. The story is this:
“Great Master Ma was unwell. The temple superintendent asked him,”Teacher, how has your venerable health been in recent days?”
The Great Master said, “Sun Face Buddha, Moon Face Buddha”.
A Sun Faced Buddha is said to live for 1,800 years, while a Moon Faced Buddha lives for a single day and a single night.
Shintai will offer a Dharma Talk and lead discussion about this well loved koan story this Sunday.
