The Trikaya

Just started posting excerpts from Shunryu Suzuki 2nd round of lectures on the Lotus Sutra - because that's what came up next as we go through all his lectures day by day snipping out this and that. The late dear Tim Buckley took this series and made a whole Wind Bell out of them. It's nicely done - and not easy - as these were not easy lectures to follow. Tim called it the Trikaya, the three bodies, as that's what Suzuki was focusing on, the three bodies of Buddha (and us all), the Nirmanakaya (historical person), and the body of bliss Sambogakaya and gone beyond Dharmakaya. Here's a page for the Trikaya plus links to that Windbell and the individual lectures.
