    Shobogenzo Zenki -- THE WHOLE WORKS

    A series of three "Sit-a-Long with Jundo" talks on Master Dogen's Shobogenzo-Zenki (The Whole Works) ...



    Master Dogen describes our life with the image of a sailor's sailing a boat on the sea. Usually, we see all the parts of our life as separate, or only vaguely connected... ship, sails, sailor, rope, the work of sailing, the sea, sand and shore, stars and sun.

    But Master Dogen asks us to experience all of this life-self-time-world-everything-and-then-some as a great whole, moving and flowing and interpenetrating together, mutually creating and defining. And he's not talking merely poetically or lyrically ... but means all of it, when seen with enlightened eyes.

      Thank you Jundo Sensei. I enjoyed this series of talks on Zenki. Reading Dogen's writing on this I found to be slightly confusing but watching the videos right after was great. The way you explain this was very helpful, though I still feel there is a need to read and watch a few more times!
