Our three week Coming and Going Sesshin at Boundless Way Temple ended this morning. Last night we held our Shuso Hossenshiki (Dharma Combat) ceremony for our shuso, Senior Dharma Teacher Alan Richardson. He spoke on a koan, which was presented to him moments before he gave an impromptu talk about it, and then answered questions from the sangha. The talk, and his answers, displayed his wisdom and compassion in equal measure. Congratulations to Alan and endless gratitude for his service to the Sangha and to the Dharma.
