Doug Jacobson, a Jikoji Resident, recently received Dharma transmission from Shoho Michael Newhall. In his professional life he is a civil/tunnel engineer. He serves as Jikoji's maintenance oversight manager (MOM), and also assists prisoners with Buddhist practice. In this talk, Doug explores the pervasive theme of "Form is Emptiness/ Emptiness is Form," as seen in the Heart Sutra and many other teachings. "Rupa" is the sanskrit term for form and "Sunyata" for emptiness/suchness.
