The Teishos on the last chapters of the Diamond Sutra are compiled here. Thanks to May Lee for spending hours on transcribing them. During one meeting, the Roshi was asked what he thought about the idea of live stream teishos. He said that this is where the trap of modern society was, that the value of a talk face to face, given to a particular audience, could not be seen anymore. And since it might seem to be about information on the internet, he rather prefer to not have the transcribed teishos posted anymore, since this kind of misunderstand could arise. A teisho is directed towards the sangha who are sitting the sesshin and are in training. In this sense we will not post the transcribed teishos on the web anymore, but rather invite you all to join yet for another chance to practice together.
