Precepts as self-expression, not as rules 8 Nov. 2001
By Algernon D'Ammassa - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Editor Sara Jenkins compiles questions, answers, comments, and confrontations between Zen teacher Cheri Huber and some of her students during a retreat focusing on the first ten Buddhist precepts.
The way precepts are used in Zen practice has been likened to runway lights: they are there for you to use when the path isn't clear. Cheri Huber, who trained in the Soto tradition and has a very distinctive, insightful style, takes this even further: the precepts are not rules at all, they are doorways onto your personal practice, to identifying the deepest beliefs about existence which we defend, and an opportunity for genuine self-expression as we let this go (as opposed to defending my persona, as my conditioning has taught me).
A wonderful quality of the book is the willingness to present the students' struggles and frustration with respect for the process of the retreat. Cheri Huber refuses to pretend that she has answers: "Without any authority...maybe we can simply explore what's here."
