Taigen Dan Leighton Offers a Teaching on Socially Engaged Buddhism to the College of Complexes

The full video is below.

Taigen Dan Leighton is, of course, the noted “author, scholar, and translator, as well as a fully authorized teacher in Shunryu Suzuki Roshi’s Soto Zen lineage and a Dharma heir of Tenshin Reb Anderson” who serves as Guiding Dharma Teacher at Chicago’s Ancient Dragon Zen Gate. His books include the essential Faces of Compassion: Classic Bodhisattva Archetypes and Their Modern Expression.

The College of Complexes is a Chicago-based free speech forum built around this idea:

Our constitution and laws encourage the freest possible exchange of opinions, ideas, and information.  In part, that recognizes our worth and dignity as human beings.  To forbid us to speak our minds demeans us and makes us more like slaves or robots than citizens of a free country.  But as important as freedom of expression is for us as individuals, it is perhaps more important to society at large.
