Joshin Byrnes &  Genzan Quennell: Silent Illumination 2016 (Part 2 of 2)

Joshin Byrnes & Genzan Quennell: Silent Illumination 2016 (Part 2 of 2)

Episode Description: Genzan Quennell shares a story about a walk that the Hindu god Indra took with the Buddha.  His takeaway from the story is that “we can cease wandering at any moment and find refuge.”  In order to do this, we have to let go of our ideas: “When we are completely empty-handed, then we can see the abundance.”  Joshin Byrnes contemplates how much of our lives are spent crossing thresholds, going from place to place.  “We look far and wide for the answer,” he says, “and sometimes it is much, much closer than we think.”  He then shares a parable about a young student and his search for the “true monastery.”
