The Goddess Chapter of the Vimalakirti Sutra
SFZC Online Zendo
Saturday, May 23
The well known Vimalakirti sutra is foundational in Zen.
Best known for Vimalakirti's "thunderous silence" (that appears in the Zen koan collections), the text also has a famous chapter in which a beautiful goddess switches bodies with Sariputra, so that she becomes him and he (to his/her great consternation!) becomes her.
In this short workshop Norman will read through and comment on this chapter, and we will explore its meaning for us now.
There is no need to have read the text in advance.
