Poets, Verses and the Pure Land
This is the third of a series of popular talks. The Buddha once said that in the future monks will listen to “literary works of poets, elegant in sound, elegant in rhetoric” and will lose the true teachings. The concern was that poetry will delude rather than enlighten. In Shin, reading and writing poetry is pretty popular. How can we read an appreciate poetry without falling into attachment? Presented by Dharma Teacher Kogen.
