What are you willing to do to attain it? How long does it take to become a Zen Master? What must you study? What tests needs to be passed? How can you find a qualified teacher? Can it be done from home or must you find a monastery? What does it mean to be a Zen Master?
All this and much more is covered in From Student to Master. Filmed live in the Spring of 2009 and brought to you uncut from the Big Mind Zen Center in Salt Lake City, Utah, this DVD series is an essential guide to anyone who is considering following the Zen path. Below is a partial list of the subjects and voices covered in this weeklong session. the True Self, Taking a Leap of Faith, Evolving Practice, The Seeker, Buddha Nature, Ordinary Mind, The Master.
To Study the Buddha Way is to study the self. To study the self is to drop the self. To drop the self is to be awakened by the ten thousand dharmas. To be awakened by the ten thousand dharmas is to free one’s body/mind and those of others. No trace of attachment to the awakening remains, and this non-attachment to awakening continues forever.
