Subhana Barzaghi Roshi – Silent Illumination March 1, 2015

Silent Illumination

Subhana speaks on silent illumination (or shikantaza) and addresses some of the misconceptions that exist with respect to just what this is. In the talk Subhana stresses that whether students are koan students or shikanataza students, our practice in zen is the same. Subhana also addresses the need for shikantaza students to engage with and to be guided in their practice by a teachers counsel.

This talk was given at the February 2015 Zazenkai in Annandale.
