Event Description

Presented by the Joseph Campbell® Foundation - Mythological RoundTable® Group of Sacramento

The Taoist and Buddhist teachings presented will center on concepts such as the Tao, being one with nature, chi, sunyata = emptiness, and the Bodhisattva.  Taoism and Ch'an Mahayana Buddhism are unique in that the marriage of the Taoist emphasis on nature and the Buddhist experience of sunyata comes together with humor, intelligence, and creativity, an important influence during China's golden age.  As yet, not many works have been translated in the West from the Ch'an tradition, although Zen tradition, the later Japanese Mahayana practice incorporating Chinese Ch'an with the Samauri Bushido code, is more famililar in the West due to a fluke historically having to do with all the translations of Zen through teachers such as D.T. Suzuki. Hand-outs will be available to participants and we will end the presentation with the Bodhisattva, the embodiment of compassion toward all sentient beings.
