The Six Word Novel - This week's dharma talk begins with Sensei talking about writing your own story. How story telling is an important device for learning. Sensei tells of the story of Ernest Hemmingway and how he was able to write a novel of six words. In Jodo Shinshu there is also a story told in six Kanji characters. Listen to this week's talk to discover the value of stories. You can also access an archive of several years of past talks from iTunes.
