Pierre Taigu Turlur (b. 1964)

Post by clyde » Sun Mar 03, 2019 1:35 am

This is an odd, but compelling Dharma talk by Pierre Taigu Turlur, “Dirty Soup”:

“Enlightenment means to see what harm you are involved in and to renounce it.” David Brazier, The New Buddhism

“The most straightforward advice on awakening enlightened mind is this: practice not causing harm to anyone—yourself or others—and every day, do what you can to be helpful.” Pema Chodron, “What to Do When the Going Gets Rough”

What a surprise! I’m impressed.
You can see his Kenshō.
Started off odd, became compelling.
Three thumbs up!!!

Maybe two thumbs up!!
The audio is a bit mushy in places.

If the audio were turned off
That would bump it back up to two and a half thumbs!!!

His very smile says 'metta' to me. Moving talk. Reminds me a bit of one Pema Chodron gave where she kept using the word 'scabies' to drive home the discomfort of being present. I had a hard time listening to that! :hide:

Hi Clyde/all.

I think that is a stunning dhama talk which goes straigh to the the heart of the most simple and complicated of practices from my perspective.

There have been times when i have had the courage and persistance to drink the soup, and to realise that it tastes both awfull, and just the same as any other soup. Most of the time i'm getting lost in the exits, realising that they are actually dead ends, and heading back to the bowl of soup, the cushion and reality on it's own terms.

Thanks for posting this Clyde.

with metta, bukowski. :namaste:

Hey James. How exactly do you see his kensho?
