The Holy Teachings of Zen Master Housefly

This is the YouTube record of last night’s first livestream broadcast of the summer retreat season (June 1-30).

Even if you don’t/can’t/won’t watch the whole thing, there is a short, quickie Dharma talk at the very beginning (start at 13:08) that perhaps some of you might find interesting. It concerns a fat, juicy house-fly banging on the window behind me as I sat down to do the Evening Bell Chant to start the practice. What a great Zen master is this fly!

The sound quality is not excellent, but with some attention, you can make out what this fly is teaching YOU about your life, and about mine.
