“Having the goal of not having a goal, if you actually go into it, is totally different from any other goal you might have.” - Brad Warner
A Q&A night w/ Brad Warner! Opening with a mini lecture on vaudeville and the three stooges, Brad takes his topics from the sangha including classics such as:
I feel more detached after doing zazen, am I doing it wrong?
Are the Transcendental Meditation people having more fun than us, and does that make us better than them?
What are the pros and cons of Zen practice?
Is there any value to sutras that promise pie in the sky rewards for praying right?
and to round out the vaudeville theme, a comparison of how Houdini’s idea that revealing his tricks does nothing to spoil their magic is a similar magic to the one we perform here every week
