Baizhang and the Fox – a Koan

Hello, All.  Many of the talks by the teacher and transmitted dharma holders at Zen Mountain Monastery are given using ancient koans as a touchstone/backdrop for how we may relate to today’s world.  We would like to recommend to you one such talk recently given by Geoffrey Shugen Arnold, head of the Mountains and Rivers Order of Zen Buddhism, abbot and teacher at ZMM.  The first link below is the talk, while the second link allows access to many other available teachings:
