Here Sensei shares, with commentary, a gongan that involves an exchange between a Chan master and a man who fancied himself to be much more along the path to enlightenment than his actual state. Learn from this story how your mind-state influences "what you see" in yourself and others. Gongans are powerful exchanges between individuals that often result in a major awakening of one of the participants. The Chan Buddhism tradition uses this tool of teaching with great effect. Listen to this gongan. (a.k.a koan in Japanese Buddhism) Then, incorporate its wisdom into your contemplative exercises to support your spiritual eating practices. --- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/plant-powered-buddhist/support
