Zen Teachers' Podcasts/Audio & Video Talks on the Web

Postby Carol on Fri Sep 16, 2011 8:07 pm

This is a place to post links to Zen Teachers' podcasts on the internet. Many people are looking for a Zen teacher. Listening to their talks may give you a taste of their teaching that you want to follow up on by contacting the teacher or Zen center to find out about attending a retreat or other means of studying with that teacher.

This isn't a "discussion" thread, but please do use it to post links to Zen teachers' audio talks that I haven't found yet. The ones I post will include a brief discription from the Teacher/Center's web page about their practice and lineage if available.

Dharma Drum Chan Retreat Center. This is in the lineage of Chan Master Sheng Yen.

Audio dharma talks here: http://www.dharmadrumretreat.org/teachings.php?id=audiovideo
Many of these talks are in Chinese with English translation.

About Us

Dharma Drum Retreat Center (DDRC) was founded by the renowned scholar and teacher of Chan Buddhism, Chan Master Sheng Yen. Currently our resident abbot is Guo Xing Fashi, one of the Dharma heirs of Master Sheng Yen.

We are located in Pine Bush, NY, 90 miles northwest of New York City. The center lies below the ecologically protected Shawangunk Ridge amid 125 acres of woods and meadowland. A tributary of the Verkeerder Kill flows from below Sam's Point Preserve on the ridge down through the property, where it forms a tranquil pond (Murray Pond) not far from the Chan hall.

The center is maintained by staff members and volunteers who, together with our strong faculty of lay and monastic teachers, aim to provide a home of Buddhist practice and learning for everyone. Whether for a few hours or a few weeks, we offer a range of activities to suit your interests and needs.

Our Founder

"Kindness and compassion have no enemies; wisdom engenders no vexations."

For over thirty years, Chan Master Sheng Yen (Shifu) (1930-2009) devoted himself tirelessly to reviving the tradition of rigorous education for monks and nuns, establishing monasteries and centers of learning; teaching and leading Chan retreats worldwide; interfaith outreach, world peace, youth development, and gender equality. Shifu also emphasized protecting the four environments we inhabit - the spiritual/mental, the social, the living, and the natural.

Shifu taught in a concise, direct and practical manner, with an approach to understanding that people can easily relate to and apply in their daily lives. With disciples and Dharma heirs worldwide, Shifu has planted the seeds for the continued cultivation of Chan in the world today and the future, for the benefit of all who wish to learn and practice this tradition.

Dharma talks given at the Seattle Rinzai Zen Temple Dai Bai Zan Cho Bo Zen Jiby Genjo Marinello Osho

Podcasts here: http://genjo.libsyn.com/

Genjo cycles through the great koan collections and the teachings of Rinzai in these talks.

History

Dai Bai Zan Cho Bo Zen Ji or "The Listening to the Dharma Zen Temple on Great Plum Mountain" was founded in Seattle,WA by Zen Master Genki Takabayashi. Genki Roshi was invited by the Seattle Zen Center (founded by Dr. Glenn Webb, at the time a University of Washington Art History professor) to become the resident teacher in the fall 1978. He accepted, and by 1983 formalized his teaching style around a small group of students and founded Cho Bo Zen Ji. Before Genki Roshi came to Seattle, he trained for nearly twenty years at Daitoku-Ji, the head Rinzai temple in Japan, founded in the fourteenth century. In addition Genki Roshi directed a Rinzai temple in Kamakura, Japan. He entered the monastery when he was eleven years old.

After twenty years of tirelessly giving himself to the transmission of Buddha Dharma to the United States, in 1997 he retired as our teacher (see Retirement Teisho), got married and moved to Montana. There he has planted the seeds for yet another American Zen group, and doing the activities he loves best, gardening, pottery, calligraphy, writing and cooking. In 1990, Genki Roshi fully ordained two priests, including Kokan Genjo Marinello Osho and Daiju Gentei Diedricks Osho, who now lives in the Bay Area. On April 8th, 2007, Genki Roshi also fully ordained Genko Ni Osho.

Genjo Osho began his Zen training in 1975, and was ordained an unsui(priest in training) in 1980. In 1981-82 he trained at RyutakuJi in Japan. Genjo Osho was formally installed as our second Abbot on Rinzai Zenji's (d.866) memorial day January 10th, 1999. In addition to being our Abbot, Genjo Osho is a psychotherapist in private practice, a certificated spiritual director from a program affiliated with the Vancouver School of Theology, married to wife, Carolyn, and devoted father to daughter, Adrienne. Our temple is in the Rinzai - Hakuin Ekaku Zenji Dharma Line, after Genki Roshi retired, Genjo Marinello Osho trained with Eido Shimano Roshi, abbot of DaiBosatsu Monastery in New York, who affirmed Genjo Osho as a Dharma Heir on May 21st, 2008. Genjo Osho-san is a member of the American Zen Teachers Association. Genjo's Dharma Talks have been published in several Dharma journals beginning with the Theosphical Society’s Quest Magazine in 1991. Genjo Osho’s commentary on Koan Practice has been translated into several languages.

Genjo Osho has served the greater Seattle community as an Adjunct Faculty member at Antioch University Seattle in Buddhist Studies, a member of the Religious Coalition for Equality, a volunteer Buddhist pastor for the Washington State Department of Corrections, a Spiritual Director associated with Anamchara ­ a Progam of Multifaith Works, and has worked repeatedly with the Church Council of Greater Seattle in interfaith trauma response to tragedies. Genjo Osho is assisted by Genko Kathy Blackman Ni-Osho, who is also a Urasenke Japanese Tea Teacher and a member of the Religious Services Advisory Committee of the Washington State Department of Corrections.

Here's some audio Dharma Talks from Dharma Rain Zen Center in Portland OR!

http://www.dharma-rain.org/?p=audio_dharmatalks

Listed are those who give the talks, some are from teachers, some are lay teachers, some are student talks.

Kyogen and Gyokuko are fully transmitted priests in the Soto Zen lineage, the co-abbots, Domyo, Kakumyo and Getsushin are their transmitted priests, Seido. Bukkai and Jiko are transmitted lay teachers, Shintai, Teijin and Kim are lay practitioners who are very involved in the center.

(I attended during Shintai's talk, about facing near-death in a remote German hospital and how she drew on her Zen training to make it through the ordeal, it's a nail biter!)
Facing a precious mirror, form and reflection behold each other. You are not it, but in truth it is you.

Zen Mountain Monastery

Runs a 24 daily web radio program, with dharma talks by founder John Daido Loori Roshi (1931-2009) and the current teachers

here WZEN.ORG
Welcome to WZEN.org, the internet radio station of the Mountains and Rivers Order based at Zen Mountain Monastery in Upstate New York. Since 2002, our mission has been to inform, support, and inspire Zen Buddhist practitioners, as well as all those seeking to live awake, compassionate lives.

Most of our programs are produced in affiliation with Zen Mountain Monastery and the Zen Center of New York City in Brooklyn, but we also carry selected programs on religion, the environment, social issues, and the arts relevant to spiritual practice as it unfolds in the world today.

We broadcast a 12-hour loop twice each day, so a program that plays at 8 am will repeat at 8 pm. Dharma Talks are updated on a weekly basis; other programs are updated each month.

Thank you for being part of our community of listeners. We look forward to hearing from you.


Geoffrey Shugen Arnold, Sensei

Shugen Sensei received dharma transmission from Daido Roshi in 1997. He is the head of the MRO and abbot of the Zen Center of New York City. Shugen Sensei also manages the National Buddhist Prison Sangha. He has been in full-time residential training since 1986. His teachings have appeared in various Buddhist journals and in The Best Buddhist Writing 2009.

Konrad Ryushin Marchaj, Sensei

Ryushin Sensei received dharma transmission from Daido Roshi in 2009. He is the abbot of Zen Mountain Monastery. He began studying with Daido Roshi in 1987 and entered residency in 1992. Before becoming a resident, he worked as a pediatrician and a psychiatrist.


About Zen Mountain Monastery

Zen Mountain Monastery is a monastic training center providing traditional yet distinctly Western Zen training to people of all ages and religious backgrounds. With a resident community of female and male monastics and lay trainees, the Monastery offers a wide variety of programs and retreats for both beginning and advanced Buddhist practitioners. Set in a nature preserve in the Catskill Mountains of upstate New York, the Monastery offers an atmosphere conducive to self-study and introspection.

Authentic Zen Training

ZMM’s training schedule is a continuation of the centuries-old tradition established in the Zen Buddhist monasteries of China and Japan. Every year, two 90-day intensives called ango bring into focus MRO students’ commitment to religious training within the Order—regardless of whether they are in residence or living in the world. Each month, a week-long silent meditation retreat or sesshin offers participants the opportunity to immerse themselves in Zen’s quintessential practice of zazen, seated meditation, as well as to experience the tradition’s very particular approach to liturgy and face-to-face instructions with a teacher. The summer and winter interim periods nicely balance the intensity of ango by shifting emphasis to more outwardly-oriented retreats in the summer warmer months and solitary study and introspection in the wintertime.

By mirroring the seasonal shift of the training schedule, the weekly retreats offered at ZMM both support and enhance the carefully crafted rhythm of the monastic community, at the same time that they offer visitors a chance to directly experience life in a Zen monastery. Well-known scholars share their knowledge and practice of the Buddhist sutras and related texts in our popular Academic Study retreats. Yoga, Qigong and Aikido instructors each present their views and understanding of Body Practice and its relationship to the spiritual journey. Monthly Introductions to Zen Training Retreats led by MRO’s teachers and senior staff offer a comprehensive introduction to Zen training as it has developed within the MRO. Liturgy, the Buddhist Precepts, the Zen Arts, Wilderness Exploration, Right Action, and Work as Sacred Labor, are but a few of the themes offered in our annual roster of retreats.

As one of the few Zen monastic training centers in the west, ZMM is in the unique position of offering spiritual seekers a rare blend of authentic—yet distinctly Western—Zen training. Participants can experience monastic daily life whilst engaging in retreats specifically designed to address the concerns of twenty-first century practitioners. Whether through the study of kado (flower arranging) or the exploration of the role of the Precepts in the workplace, our training program is always grounded on a single premise: the clear and personal realization of enlightenment and its functioning in the world.
Practitioners who cultivate the personal realization of buddha knowledge dwell in the bliss of whatever is present and do not abandon their practice.

San Francisco Zen Center

Founded by Shunryu Suzuki Roshi, SFZC offers audio dharma talks from a number of teachers here

San Francisco Zen Center was established in 1962 by Shunryu Suzuki Roshi (1904-1971) and his American students. Suzuki Roshi is known to countless readers as the author of the modern spiritual classic, Zen Mind, Beginner's Mind.

The purpose of San Francisco Zen Center is to make accessible and embody the wisdom and compassion of the Buddha as expressed in the Soto Zen tradition established by Dogen Zenji in 13th-century Japan and conveyed to us by Suzuki Roshi and other Buddhist teachers. Our practice flows from the insight that all beings are Buddha, and that sitting in meditation is itself the realization of Buddha nature, or enlightenment.

Today, San Francisco Zen Center is one of the largest Buddhist sanghas outside Asia. It has three practice places: City Center, in the vibrant heart of San Francisco; Green Gulch Farm, whose organic fields meet the ocean in Marin County; and Tassajara Zen Mountain Center—the first Zen training monastery in the West—in the Ventana Wilderness inland from Big Sur. These three complementary practice centers offer daily meditation, regular monastic retreats and practice periods, classes, lectures, and workshops.

Zen Center is a practice place for a diverse population of students, visitors, lay people, priests, and monks guided by teachers who follow in Suzuki Roshi's style of warm hand and heart to warm hand and heart. All are welcome.

Zen Center programs also reach out to the community, helping prisoners, the homeless, and those in recovery; protecting the environment; and working for peace. See our outreach program for details. Suzuki Roshi's disciples and students of his disciples now lead dharma groups around the country.

Zoketsu Norman Fischer is a poet and Zen Buddhist priest. For many years he has taught at the San Francisco Zen Center, the oldest and largest of the new Buddhist organizations in the West, where he served as Co-abbot from 1995-2000. He is presently a Senior Dharma Teacher there as well as the founder and spiritual director of the Everyday Zen Foundation, an organization dedicated to adapting Zen Buddhist teachings to Western culture.

A person of unusually wide-ranging interests, his Zen teaching is known for its eclecticism, openness, warmth, and common sense, and for his willingness to let go of everything, including Zen. His chief interests in addition to poetry and traditional Zen and Buddhist teachings, are the adaptation of Zen meditation and understanding to the worlds of business, law, conflict resolution, interreligious dialog (he works especially with Jewish meditation and Catholic intermonastic dialog), care of the dying (he has for many years been a teacher with and is emeritus chair of the board of the Zen Hospice Project), the world of technology, and anything else he can think of.



Everyday Zen

About The Everyday Zen Foundation
Mission
The Everyday Zen Foundation’s mission is to share the Zen attitude, spirit, and practice with the world. It is dedicated to listening to the world, to changing it and being changed by it.

This work is accomplished through Norman's teaching and writing and traveling, as well as through the activities of the many supporters and practitioners of Everyday Zen, all of whom are engaging with spiritual practice in the world.

Zen Community of Oregon & Great Vow Monastery

Dharma Talks by Chozen Bays, Roshi, and Zen Teacher Hogan Bays here

Purpose and History

Purpose

Great Vow is a residential, Zen Buddhist, training monastery inspired and guided by Jizo Bodhisattva’s vow to help all beings who suffer, no matter where they are found. The monastery's aspiration is to maintain authentic, whole-hearted practice while keeping the teachings open and accessible to anyone with a sincere desire to practice the Buddha-way. Our practice is a synthesis of Soto and Rinzai Zen traditions informed by the practice and study of our teachers, Chozen and Hogen Bays. At the heart of our training are monthly silent meditation retreats ranging from 6-10 days called sesshin. We also offer a variety of workshops and classes ranging from contemplative arts to compassionate communication with the intention to broaden our expression of wisdom in everyday life. We hope that Great Vow can be a spiritual refuge and a vehicle to carry the life of the Dharma forward for many generations to come.


Taizan Maezumi, Roshi
Founder of Great Vow Zen Monastery. The original teacher of Chozen Bays, and the ordination teacher of Hogen Bays.

Maezumi Roshi was ordained at age 11 by his father, Hakujun Kuroda Roshi. He came to the United States to serve the Soto Zen Mission in Los Angeles. He had begun koan study in Japan with the lay Rinzai teacher Osaka Koryu Roshi at age 16. After meeting Yasutani Roshi, he undertook koan study with him, becoming his successor in 1970. Later, Maezumi Roshi resumed koan study with Koryu Roshi, receiving Dharma Transmission from him in 1973. Maezumi Roshi thus became a Dharma successor in the Soto, Rinzai, and Sanbo Kyodan traditions. In 1967 Maezumi Roshi founded the Zen Center of Los Angeles. His kind but rigorous training at this mother temple produced twelve Dharma successors, including our teacher Chozen Bays.

Pacific Zen Institute

Audio and Video talks by John Tarrant Roshi and David Weinstein Roshi here.

About Us

After 20 years of teaching koans in a classical way, John Tarrant, the founder of PZI, developed a new way of teaching koans in a setting that requires no experience with meditation or Zen. The emphasis is on taking one step into freedom. Everything we do is directed to that end.

Our mission is to develop a culture for transforming the mind through meditation, koans, conversation and the arts.

We hold 7-day and 1-day retreats devoted to freeing the mind. We also have small group seminars on koans.

As a community we help deepen one another's practice, often without really trying.

PZI holds weekly gatherings at our Practice Centers in Santa Rosa, Oakland, San Francisco, San Jose and Santa Cruz, California and in Phoenix, Arizona. These evenings include meditation, a talk and open discussion, and sometimes music and other things.

We offer a regular daily schedule, introductory weekends, silent meditation retreats (sesshin) ranging from 2 to 7 days, and two intensive training periods a year. Yokoji has grown up over the years, from a small collection of temporary buildings with a tent for a Zendo, into the fully fledged international Training Center of today - and a continuous cycle of year-round training has been maintained since 1995.

We are a Soto Zen Buddhist temple - to find more out about what this means, click here.

A new place I'm going to check out:

http://www.austinzencenter.org

Talks by Kosho McCall and others here http://www.austinzencenter.org/teachings/audio/audio.html

[Moderator's note: This is in the Soto Zen lineage of Shunryu Suzuki Roshi and San Francisco Zen Center.

Info from their web page: "Kosho McCall, originally from Maine, practiced at San Francisco Zen Center for 20 years. He trained for 12 of those years at Tassajara Zen Mountain monastery where he became Head of Monastic Practice. He received Dharma Transmission from Zenkei Hartman Roshi in 2003. He became Teacher and Head Priest of Austin Zen Center in May of 2009."]

I would just like to thank you for posting these links. Being without a teacher or sangha, I find these talks to be of great value.
