Tsung-Mi’s Teachings on the Interpenetration of Opposites

Public Lecture, 7.30 - 8.30 pm, 19 February 2020.

Featured Speaker:Peter Bruza
Venue:Brisbane Lodge

Kuei-feng Tsung-Mi (779-841) was a patriarch of the Kegon school as well as being a Zen master. Verdu (1974) regards his teachings as being the epitome of Buddhist philosophy. Central to his teachings is the notion of “interpenetration” between two apparent opposites, e.g., knowledge/non-knowledge, subject/object, absolute/relative, unity/diversity. This talk will attempt to clarify Tsung Mi’s teachings on interpenetration and relate it to teachings called the “Five Ranks” by Zen master Tung-shan (807-869), founder of what is now known as Sōtō school of Zen, as well as making connections to the continental philosophy of Martin Heidegger (1889-1976).
