This talk continues Shohaku Okumura Roshi's commentary on Dogen Zenji's Tenzo Kyokun. Okumura Roshi discusses the difference between our normal attitude toward preparing food and the teaching Dogen Zenji offers to the tenzo. Preparing meals is a metaphor for making choices about the lives we live. It was originally given at Sanshinji in Bloomington, IN on May 23, 2007.
