Podcast: Zen & Tantra with Sokuzan Bob Brown (Part 1)

Buddhist teachings have been practiced and transmitted for 2,500 years, making their way from India into Burma and Southeast Asia, north to Tibet and Nepal, east to China, Korea and Japan, and west to Pakistan and Afghanistan, and other places.

Through time, the teachings have morphed and taken on new forms in whatever culture they came in contact with.  Central to all authentic Buddhist lineages is a direct connection to the historical Buddha and a dedication to uncovering the innate potential of all beings.

This podcast features Sokuzan Bob Brown in a lecture and discussion around his deep experience in both Tibetan Tantric and Soto Zen practices.  What do the paths have in common, and where do they diverge?

Sokuzan Bob Brown ordained as a Zen priest in the Soto Zen lineage and was a student of Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche and Kobun Chino Roshi, and is currently a student of Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche and His Holiness the 17th Karmapa Ogyen Trinley Dorje.   He has been involved with art for over 50 years as an illustrator in the Marine Corps and his attendance at theSchool of the Art Institute of Chicago and the Corcoran Gallery of Art in Washington DC.
