We had a great conversation last night. It was a pleasure to welcome back Chris Wilson from his convalescence.
We worked again with "Thank you, I have no complaints whatsoever". There was discussion and a lecture on its tranformative properties.
Next week we will return to the koan short course work with this koan. Sit with it this week, and just notice how it works on you, how it transforms you:
"If you are scorned by others and are about to drop into hell because of evil karma from your previous life, then because you are scorned by others, the evil karma of your previous life will be extinguished."
“A Course on Koans” is the delusion-riddled work of Chris Kufu (“Wind in the Void”) Wilson, who began practicing Zen in 1967. He regards Taizan Maezumi, Robert Aitken, and David Weinstein as his root teachers. Each of them pecked at his shell until he “completed” the never-ending koan curriculum of the Harada-Yasutani lineage.
