James Baraz's Dharma Talks
James Baraz
I try to convey that the wisdom and compassion we are looking for is already inside of us. I see practice as learning how to purify our mind and heart so we can hear the Buddha inside. In doing so, we naturally embody the dharma and help awaken that understanding and love in others we meet.
2009-06-04 Verses on the Faith Mind by Seng-T'san (3rd Zen Patriarch of China), part 3 56:43
Tonight James finishes his series on the Faith Mind by the 3rd Zen Patriarch of China. One of the most meaningful lines in this section is: ”To live in this (highest) realization is to be without anxiety about non-perfection.” Cultivating that attitude is a key to freedom. To let ourselves be perfectly imperfect.
