No Mind, No Buddha – Zen Lessons Koans 2: Mindfulness talk by Richard Clarke


n this session Richard Clarke explores the final step in meditation which is consciousness without an object.
He discusses three koans from “The Gateless Gate,” an ancient book of paradoxical teachings.
The first koan is about finding something within ourselves that is not the mind, not the person, and not things. It is the consciousness that lights up our existence.
The second koan is about the nature of movement and the realization that it is the mind that moves, not things.
The third koan teaches us not to adhere to phrases but to understand the true meaning behind them.
These koans offer wisdom about consciousness, the mind, and the nature of existence, and it’s important to approach them with an open mind.
