Zen Master Dogen’s “Expressing the Truth”

Study and Discussion Group with Hoshi Deirdre Eisho Peterson

Our study text for Summer Ango is Dotoku, from Master Dogen’s Treasury of the True Dharma Eye. It is the text out of which comes the Village Zendo’s formal name, Dotoku-ji, or True Expression Temple. In this study group we will read key excerpts from Dotoku and explore what these teachings on True Expression mean in our own lives.

There will be two periods of zazen prior to the Study Group, from 5.30 – 6.35 pm.
