Zen Master Dae Kwang on Kong-an Practice

A lot of around and around and around and around lately. Making a living, trying to get things going, lots of do-this and do-that.

So instead of my blather, today I offer you Zen Master Dae Kwang, who was until recently the guiding teacher at our head temple, Providence Zen Center. This is a long video but worth a watch and a listen if you have some time. He begins by talking about this "around and around and around" phenomenon, what the Buddha said about it, and then explains what kong-ans (koan) show and what they do not show.
