Where will you meet today?

Huang-po, instructing the community, said:  ‘All of you people are gobblers of dregs; if you go on travelling around this way, where will you meet Today? Don’t you know there is no Zen teacher?’

This is the last teisho of sesshin.  Later tomorrow when we go forth in the world, the treasure of sesshin is here. We vow to meet Today.  In the midst of everything, there is the silence. 

This teisho was given by Gillian Coote, roshi at SZC’s Spring sesshin 2023 on day 6.
