This is the sixth in an excellent 8-talk sequence by Padmavajra on Zen Buddhism. The series is full of colourful stories and challenging insights from the lives of the great Masters of China and Japan.
With particular reference to the Lankavatara and its steachings, Padmavajra paints an inspiring picture of the 'intimate mind' of practice and Enlightenment.
