About This Event
Come join us on site in the Genjo Building as we gather to watch Yamada-sensei's talk remotely from Japan via Zoom.
Yuko Wakayama Yamada-sensei will be giving a lecture on The Denkoroku - the record of transmitting the light by Keizan Zenji. The Denkoroku documents the great enlightenment of Shakyamuni Buddha and its transmission by fifty-two patriarchs in India, China and Japan. This Zen text created by Keizan Zenji is the most revered record of transmitted instructions in learning the Way.
