A Special Transmission Outside the Scriptures

A Special Transmission Outside the Scriptures

Postby clyde on Wed Apr 23, 2014 11:11 pm

There are at least two threads that discussed a verse, attributed to Bodhidharma, which is often said to summarize the Zen tradition. Here is how Tenshin Reb Anderson (from the San Francisco Zen Center) presents it:
A special transmission outside scriptures,
Not using words,
Seeing into nature,
Becoming Buddha.

And here is his Dharma talk on “A Special Transmission Outside the Scriptures”:

It is well worth the listen.
