KOBUN'S TALKS ON THE HEART SUTRA:
EDITED BY JUDY COSGROVE

In his Monday Morning Group, Kobun discussed three Buddhist sutras, the most important of which was the Heart Sutra, which is chanted more frequently than any other sutra.  “Form does not differ from emptiness, emptiness does not differ from form,” is the core of our belief, as Buddhists.  This book is Kobun’s teisho on form and emptiness, edited by Angie Boissevain and Judy Cosgrove.

 
 
 

   

    

KOBUN'S TALKS ON THE Platform SUTRA:
EDITED BY JUDY COSGROVE

Here is a sampling of Kobun’s teaching about the important points in the Platform Sutra of the Sixth Patriarch.  According to Kobun, the core of his teaching is expressed in,”We take refuge in the pure Law-body of the Buddha with our own physical bodies…”  With these words, Hui-neng, the Sixth Patriarch, introduces Zen to Chinese Buddhist practice.
