The third ancestor of the Zen lineage in China, Kanchi Sosan, is reported to have penned the foundational text Verses of Faith Mind.  In just 146 short lines, the Third Ancestor expresses the core of the Zen path.  This text has been treasured for over a millennium and contains many phrases that turn up again and again in Zen teachings.  In this seven part series, Head Teacher, Ejo McMullen, and Head Student, Anyu Savelle, will introduce and explore the depth and subtleties of Sosan’s famous poem. (Dharma talks are preceded by a fifteen-minute chanting service and twenty minutes of seated meditation.)
