Brad Warner - The Problem Might Be Society

rad opens Dogen’s Eihei Koroku at random to see if the spirits have any special message for us, and settles on a reading of “A Demonstration of Six Magical Powers” (dude whoa), where Dogen gets a little sarcastic. The sangha discusses whether it is possible to feel sarcastic during satori, why we eat so many sweets, whether we would rather lose all of our senses than see a loved one be eaten, before making their way to an interesting conversation o the use of anti-depressants and whether or not they would classify as “altered states” in Buddhist terms.
