Gillian Coote, roshi, explores the anguish of Bodhidharma’s student, Huike, standing in the snow, desperate for his mind to be at peace.  When resolved, this is an experience that Zen students have described as ‘coming home’ – body and mind and this moment, perfectly at ease, completely present.


This teisho based on Case 41 of the Wumen Kuan was given on Day 2 of the 2018 Spring sesshin at Kodoji
