About this talk
This is only the end of the talk from this date. Sandokai Lecture VI Wednesday, June 10, 1970 Tassajara [This lecture is concerned with the following lines of the Sandokai: Shiki moto shitsuzo wo kotonishi, sho moto rakku wo kotonisu. An wa jochu no koto ni kanai, mei wa seidaku no ku wo wakatsu. --------------------------- Things have various natures, various forms. There is good and bad, taste, sound, and feeling. In darkness, superior and inferior cannot be distinguished; in brightness, the duality of pure and impure is apparent.]
