Kathie Fischer on The Platform Sutra

In the spring of 2020, Kathie Fischer gave a series of 4 talks at Dharma Seminar on the Platform Sutra and the teachings of the sixth ancestor Hui-neng. As we embark on our own study of this text for Practice Period, these talks are freshly relevant, expanding our engagement with this seminal text.

Norman on Dōgen

Last December, Norman gave a series of talks on Dōgen’s “Dharma Blossoms Turn Dharma Blossoms.” The fascicle is about the Lotus Sutra, the focus of last fall’s Practice Period. But as Norman explains, it is based on a saying in the Platform Sutra, our topic for the 2021 Practice Period. These talks thus form a bridge between the two Practice Periods.
