What is “True Expression” in a Zen context? Here is a Dharma talk that comments on “Dotoku” a 13th century Zen Buddhist essay by Dogen Zenji. “Dotoku” is often translated as “True Expression.”  Here I relate my own experiences of True Expression over the years, and discuss one of my favorite Zen Koans, “Zuigan Calls Master.”

Here is the talk in it’s entirety 27 minutes, recorded February 8th, 2018 at the Village Zendo in NYC:
