Shitou’s poem, Merging of Difference and Unity
April 4, April 11, April 18, April 25
This famous poem is chanted all over the Zen world sometimes every day. We chant it every Wednesday morning here at Clear Water. Schedule will be Zazen at 5:40 PM for 30 minutes, short service and a class to begin at 6:20 or so. We have a number of copies of the book, Branching Streams Flow in the Darkness, which is Suzuki Roshi’s lectures on the poem. The lectures were edited by Sojun Mel Weitsman Roshi and his disciple Michael Wenger. It is not necessary to read the book in order to get something out of the class. However, it would enrich the experience to read the book.

Charge for the class is $45.
