Intensive 10-day Retreat

Led by Master Guo Ru

(Conducted in both English and Chinese)



When we drink tea, who is it that’s tasting?

When we look at the bright moon, who is it that’s fantasizing?

When you are reading this page, who is it that’s trying to perceive?

What, is it?

 

For thousands of years, people have investigated this fundamental question about our life, our mind, and our true nature. To help us realize it, great masters have used all kinds of methods to point it out -- “Look! It is right in front of you!” They may wink, shout, kick, tell you to go wash your bowl or show you a cake, all merely trying to help you experience Chan by yourself. In fact, that’s the beauty of Chinese Patriarch Chan. It always directly point to the true mind, and is never limited to certain ways.

 

Yet, have the masters really given any teachings? Here’s a story for you. One day, the Buddha asked Sariputra to share his idea of how bodhisattvas go forth into prajna paramita, the perfect wisdom. Sariputra said, “I see neither something called ‘boddhisattva’, nor anything called ‘prajna paramita’. What shall I say?” The Buddha laughed and proclaimed, “Just so! Just so!”

 

Get it?


If you can not get it, welcome to join us for the intensive retreat in February 2014 at Chan Grove, to experience Buddha Dharma and the true peace and joy of life, never be confused again.
