Kōans reflect an Enlightened State designed to shock the mind into sudden Awareness. ["What is Buddha?" a monk asked. "Three pounds of flax!", Master Dongshan replied.]
Mantras are sounds or groups of words that can create transformation.
How can contemplating koans or reciting mantras relate to realizing your true nature? How do they differ? What does it feel like to gain insight from one versus the other?
Jun Po Denis Kelly Roshi, 83rd Patriarch of the Rinzai Zen school, will explore this in a lively, hands-on, and deeply experiential talk, meditation, and Q&A at Boulder Integral. Climb inside two of Buddhism’s most powerful vehicles for transformation! Find out more about Jun Po Roshi here.
Boulder Integral regular and author Keith Martin-Smith recently sat down with our good friend Jun Po Denis Kelly for a talk about Mondo Zen, the influence of integral theory, and Jun Po’s vast experiences with state altering substances.
